About Ruth Stergiou

Born in Scotland, I grew up in the UK, lived in Greece for 6 years and have been based in Northern California since 1985. I have had my own business since 1989, focusing on professional development for adults and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education programs and innovation challenges for students in Middle and High School. I love to spend time exploring countries, cultures, cuisines and wines!

Ruth Stergiou purchased this house in 1993

Why Ruth Stergiou chose San Carlos

By California standards this is an older property. It was the first house on the street. I love the original floorboards, the open plan main floor and the spacious bedrooms.

What makes this house unique

Located above a park, the house has an "eagles nest" location with views that go on forever!

Great baptism weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and 2 small children so enjoyed this lovely home. The views only added to making it a special place. My son-in -law especially liked the espresso in the morning while enjoying the view. Even the rain could not hamper the view, or the small deer we saw in the neighborhood. Plenty of nice restaurants and shopping close by.

Ruth was very gracious leaving us snacks and a bottle of wine. We will certainly be back.

Great place and well set up

  • 5 of 5

Really liked staying here. Ruth has the house well set up with coffee and snacks and some other food. House is big and beds were very comfortable. The showers were hot and with good pressure, not to mention I could have almost left my toiletries at home thanks to how well stocked the bathroom was. I stayed here for a short work trip and would totally stay here again.

This home is beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in San Carlos for a family event. This home was the perfect distance to the airport and the city. When we arrived, Ruth gave us the tour and when we stepped out onto the large porch with spectacular views, we were greeted by a few deer grazing in the woods below!! The home is perfect for seven people and the kitchen is large and has all the required items needed for grilling and home cooking. We will most certainly book again when our travels take us back to San Francisco!!

San Carlos is a friendly and popular community located mid-way between San Francisco and San Jose. It's the perfect base from which to explore the Bay Area. The downtown area is centered around Laurel Street which features great restaurants and wine bars.
