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 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.

- 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 so 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) available for guests staying 3 nights or longer.

Interaction with guests

We love getting to know our guests but respect your privacy. I will plan to meet you when you check in to visit and show you around but will leave it up to you how much you would like to visit.

The neighborhood

We love our neighborhood because it is close to shopping yet quiet. I like being able to decide to have a Starbucks latte, take a 5 minute walk and have that latte a couple minutes later! We are central to everything. Caltrain is a 10 minute walk and downtown Burlingame is just beyond the train station.

Downtown Burlingame is quaint and fun - you could get lost dining, shopping, and strolling down here. Some highlights include:

Apple Store
Banana Republic
Books, Inc.
Gap/Gap Kids
J Crew

Millie Mango

Getting around

Bus service is 1/2 block away that will take you to the shopping mall or Caltrain or Bart. The Burlingame Caltrain station is a short 10 minute walk and our wonderful downtown, Burlingame Avenue, is just beyond the train station

Other things to note

The apartment is best for two people but can accommodate three if needed with an additional per day charge of $25. The third person would be on a portable twin bed that has a memory foam topper.

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!

Great Location, easy access and Wonderful Hosts! This place was perfect for a couple and a toddler; comfortable, roomy and very clean. Lynn is super helpful with what ever you may need and she's so friendly it was like we were old friends the first time we met! Sweet lady and lovely place to stay.

Lynn was an absolutely wonderful host. She is kind, understanding, helpful and communicative. Her home is incredibly comfortable and in a beautiful, quiet, residential area. I loved being just a short walk away from the center of town with shops, restaurants and everything you may want or need on either a business trip or family getaway. A very charming place! I appreciated the well stocked kitchen, off street parking space and comfortable bed. I highly recommend Lynns place. Thank you for a treat of a stay Lynn!

I've stayed at Lynn's place now 3 times in the last few months. It's a fantastic place to have the perfectly sized place for a family with 1-2 kids or for the person doing business travel. I work at a company in downtown San Mateo and HATE booking hotels because they are so far away. It is a $6-$7 uber ride to downtown San Mateo and you're right next to Caltrain if you need to go further. Lynn is also an amazing host that has goodies for you upon arrival. One of my flights was so delayed that I arrived when everything was closed - and couldn't get any food. The granola / milk / yogurt made a delicious midnight snack. It's also an easy walk to downtown Burlingame of 10-15 minutes if you're looking for that. The house is clean, tidy and the perfect size for us as a family and as a dad that travels away from family time to time - it's much better than dealing with a hotel / rental car. Thanks Lynn for providing an amazing place and experience. Can't wait to see you soon with the fam!

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!
