About this listing

We look forward to meeting you! My husband and I are parents of two, one just graduated from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and the other currently attending (still Going Blue!). We want you to feel spoiled a bit while here!

The space

Make our beautiful and spacious guest apartment your home while in the San Francisco Bay Area!

Your non-smoking home away from home is located on the first floor, with separate entrance, of our Victorian home and located in sunny, suburban Burlingame, an approximately 20-30 minute drive from both San Francisco and Palo Alto. We are a 10 minute walk to the Burlingame Caltrain station, a short 15 minute drive or bus ride to the Millbrae BART station, and a 7-10 minute drive to SFO International Airport.

Additionally, we are walking distance to Burlingame Avenue, our friendly and fun downtown as well as Washington Park, a very complete park for kids and adults. There are fun activities for kids as well as nice restaurants, boutiques, and events for adults. Burlingame boasts fabulous farmers’ markets and art shows and concerts in the park throughout the summer, as well as street fairs and fine dining – there really is something for everyone!

Your apartment consists of a bright and comfortable living room, a quiet and cozy bedroom with a quality queen bed, and a furnished kitchen and bathroom. Provided in the kitchen is a large refrigerator/freezer, two single burner portable induction cooktops, a microwave, a convection/toaster oven, a Keurig coffeemaker and an electric hot water kettle, as well as plenty of tableware.
PLEASE NOTE: The full size oven/stovetop is not hooked up so minimal cooking is possible utilizing the induction burners, convection oven and microwave. We will provide initial coffee and tea supplies, a welcome basket of goodies (such as snacks, yogurt, milk, cereal, etc) as well as plenty of toiletries. However, in case you run out or forget something – who doesn’t? – you can walk 5 minutes to a shopping complex with Safeway, CVS, Starbucks, and Chevron gas/petrol station!

We have a beautiful backyard with lots of flowers and trees, and a sport court, complete with basketball hoop, tennis wall and ping pong table. We encourage you to take full advantage of these, as well as the hot tub.

Laundry: For guests that stay 3 nights or longer, we are happy to offer use of the washer and dryer for a maximum of two loads of laundry. If you are staying less than 3 nights, please check with us prior to doing laundry.

ALSO, NO SMOKING anywhere on the property, including inside the apartment or outside in the front or back yards or driveway and sidewalk.

Bonuses!
- We have high-speed wireless Internet that you are welcome to utilize.
- You will have access to office facilities including printer and copy machine, if you do need them.
- We have provided many guidebooks and maps, but please do not hesitate to ask us about attractions – we have extensive knowledge of the whole Bay Area, from Palo Alto all the way to San Francisco. Joe grew up in SF – he’ll have you navigating like a local in no time!
- While you stay here, you are welcome to use our driveway for parking one car.

We are a fun family of four: parents Lynn and Joe, and two high school/college aged daughters. We have 1 cat that is shy but friendly who periodically escapes into the apartment therefore cat allergies beware :). We are a respectful and outgoing family and we look forward to your stay in our home!

Guest access

Please enjoy the backyard area including the sport court (basketball, ping pong, tennis wall), and hot tub! NO SMOKING ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY. Use of laundry (washer and dryer) for a maximum of two loads available for guests staying 3 nights or longer.

An amazing experience with Lynn and Joe. It's a very beautiful, quiet place and great location. Very clean, well functioning facilities, great bed, very much feeling at home, we also have access to a really beautiful garden. But we mostly appreciate was Lynn and Joe truly cared about all our needs, being able to do laundry in the middle of our 3 weeks trip in the US was so helpful. There were also many details Lynn arranged for us, made us felt comfortable and welcomed. This is a place with great heart, we just wished we have planned a few more days in San Francisco. Highly recommended for a family of 3.

Great apartment, very nice host, great location. Perfect for a small family like us. Our two year old really enjoyed the beautiful garden, the toys and books and the playground at nearby Washington Park. Parents enjoyed Burlington downtown in walking distance, nice bed and bath and amazing selection of tv channels.

Great location, clean, comfy bed. Private bathroom, lots of space, much better than a tiny hotel room. Lynn is a gracious host! very close to Caltrain. 35min to San Francisco by train.

A returning guest, I appreciate the care with which Lynn has appointed this comfortable and cozy place, from an assortment of coffees and teas to interesting reading and tourist information. I have personal reasons for finding this location attractive, but other visitors will appreciate easy access to the train between San Francisco and San Jose, as well as a short drive to the SF airport.

Lynn is a great host. We would have liked to stay longer! She's thought of so many details that make your stay comfortable and easy. She' a great source of information for everything about the area. The hot tub and back yard are a haven of beauty!

We enjoyed our stay at Lynn's - she's an excellent communicator and was able to get us in for an early check-in, which was great. Comfortable and thoughtful amenities.

What a treat! My BF and I wanted a quiet weekend to relax, and Lynn welcomed us with open arms (literally she's a hugger =D ) She showed us around the home, pointed out her list of restaurant hotspots, walkable points like Starbucks, grocery store, and an easy hike to Coyote Point. Great communication, wonderful host, spacious home, would definitely recommend!

Lynn User ProfileLynn is a superhost.

I am a retired executive from the high tech world in Silicon Valley. The gift of retirement has allowed me to enjoy more time with family and friends and have the time to work for free (aka volunteering!). I am originally from Colorado but have lived in the San Francisco Bay for over 25 years. My husband and I are parents of two - one graduate from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) who is now working (yay!) and a current freshman also attending Michigan - another four years Going Blue! As an Airbnb host, I like spoiling our guests a bit and as a guest I know what's important. We are clean, respectful and friendly!
