The Space

Please try to check in before 10 P.M.
My apartment is a 15 minute walk to Downtown San Carlos and the many shops and restaurants there. Additionally, bus (2 minute walk) and train (15 minute walk) service to the entire Peninsula from San Francisco to San Jose are conveniently close. The many tech companies in the area are a 10 to 25 minute drive while San Francisco and San Jose (Silicone Valley) are a 25 minute drive.
Express bus service from the airport to El Camino Real & San Carlos Ave (5 blocks away) is available on SamTrans Route KX. Caltrain Commuter Rail Train to SF and SJ takes 35-45 mins. Parking is available right out front of the apartment. If you desire a covered parking space we can arrange something at an additional cost.
Females in separate room. If you'd like to stay in the girl's room, please check with me on availability before booking. If you don't mind co-ed living, then just make your booking.

Older apartment, but well cared for.
2 bedrooms - 2 shared rooms
2 full bathrooms

All inclusive, but most of us try to conserve.
Full privileges with everything you need: coffee available.
We often chip in for groceries and cook a family meal.
No previews of the property. Prior to booking, complete your Airbnb profile and verify your account with ID and social networks.
It's a apartment full of people & different schedules, use ear plugs if necessary. If you're a light sleeper or can't sleep on a twin mattress, this may not be the right place for you. We are a very communal/respectful group and strive to provide space for everyone to hack to their fullest potential.
The Airbnb cleaning fee is to make sure you have a clean bed upon arrival and not to clean up after you. All spaces are shared, so please be mindful of picking up after yourself.
More than one suitcase? Consult with me prior to booking.
Located in the suburbs of Redwood Shores with convenient access to the CalTrain and bus transportation, close to restaurants, easy access to transportation, parks and bike trails, banks, and grocery store (Nob Hill Foods).

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I attended a conference that was being held within a 1/2 mile of Erik's place so I was happy with the arrangement even before I saw it with my own eyes. I arrived after 8 pm after a tiring travel day. I was welcomed by some fellow guests and was given a tour of the place and then settled in. I ended up eating dinner with one of the other guests that evening by chance then stopped at the nearby grocery store to pick up some food for the next few days. I had a lot of very spontaneous and interesting conversations with the guests in the evenings but also had privacy in my room so I could do some work. The home was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this setting to anyone who wants a mixture of cleanliness, comfort, adventure, and friendliness and who doesn't want to be isolated in a fancy hotel room with no access to a kitchen and no opportunity to live in community.

  • This is simple accommodation for the budget minded traveler. The apartment is in a very safe and convenient area close to shopping and trains. The host Erik is very responsive to questions and/or requests. Not perfect but definitely good enough for the value paid.

  • I didn't care for the idea of sharing a living room filled with several bunkbeds and other men sleeping in them as it reminded me of barracks life, but the price was right, it was quiet and clean, and the people were respectful. The cat was friendly and quickly took a liking to me, sleeping at the foot of my bed. There was a well-stocked kitchen that we were allowed to use as long as we cleaned up after ourselves. I would recommend Eriks home to others and I'd stay there again should circumstances warrent it.

  • It was enjoyable living here. Many people are in the tech industry, leading to many interesting conversations and 'collisions'. Nice area, right beside a large supermarket opened late. This is not a hotel, but more like a hostel. For the price, this place can't be beat.

  • Eric is a nice guy and is easy to talk to. The place is across the street from a small shopping center so it is a short walk to a grocery store, coffee shop and some restaurants.

    I rented an airbed on the floor of the living room. A warning for other people coming to visit is there are several people renting air beds so don't be surprised if you see several people here. In most cases the people visiting have been very nice.

  • I had an very interesting chat with Erik, he is a brilliant person, his house is in a really nice place, safe and with comunication for the hiway to San Francisco (about 30 min to the city centre) , you have shop, restaurants and free parking in one minute distance walking. There were other guest like me, all of them very interesting and friendly, Im very happy because now I had new friends. I recommend you this place! Thanks a lot Erik and all the people to made me feel like at home.

I'll try nearly anything once; I am a 43 y/o adventurous spirit. I've gone bungee jumping, bridge walking, and rock climbing. I enjoy swimming, tennis, basketball and jui jitsu. I bring warmth to those around me and extend myself when others need a hand. I believe attracting positive things to my life is a result of sharing my positive energy with others. I've been dedicated to my career in public health - psychology. My early affinity for helping others, as my mom says, developed when I was very young. The large family that I hail from weren't much help in deterring me away from a career in helping others either. Since eligible to work at the age of 16, I've held some type of job in public health that I fostered into a career with the help of a BA, then MA in Psychology. My more recent venture is a return to school for a Ph.D. Between work, school, volunteering and trying to maintain some semblance of a social life, I have a rich schedule that keeps me on my toes. I've done a bit of traveling in my life. At an early age, family vacations took me to Canada and Mexico and in more recent years personal and business brought me to Paris, Holland, Bulgaria, London, Tijuana, and Italy. Domestically, I've been to all of the West Coast States, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, NY, Florida to spout off a few. :-) I look forward to meeting many folks through this service, perhaps one of those people will be you. Cheers & safe travels, ~Erik
