The Space

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

Your home away from home is located on the first floor, with separate entrace, 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 walking distance from the Burlingame Caltrain station, a short drive or bus ride to the Millbrae BART station, and a 7 minute drive to SFO International Airport.

Additionally, we are walking distance to Burlingame Avenue, our friendly and fun downtown. There are fun activities for kids as well as nice restaurants, boutiques, and events for adults. Burlingame boasts fabulous farmers’ markets and art shows 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, a single burner portable cooktop, a microwave, a 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 with the single burner cooktop, toaster oven and microwave. We will provide coffee and tea supplies, a welcome basket of goodies (snacks, yogurts, milk, cereal, etc) as well as plenty of toiletries. However, in case you forget something – who doesn’t? – you can walk 5 minutes to a shopping complex with Safeway, CVS, Starbucks, and Chevron!

We have a beautiful backyard with lots of flowers and trees, and a tennis wall and ping pong table on our sport court. We encourage you to take full advantage of these, as well as our fire pit and hot tub.

Bonuses!
- You will be able to do laundry while staying with us – please feel at home and hang whatever needs to be hung in our laundry room!
- We have high-speed wireless Internet that you are welcome to utilize.
- You will have access to office facilities like a printer, fax machine, and copy machine, if you do need them.
- We have provided lots of guidebooks and maps for you, 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.

We are a fun family of four: parents Lynn and Joe, and two high school/college aged daughters. We have 1 cat (Andie) and 1 dog (Max), who are both very friendly and lovable. 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), fire pit, and hot tub! We also have a deck dining table that can be utilized with the natural gas barbecue grill that we are happy to share when we are not using it.

Interaction with Guests

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

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 where there are wonderful shops and restaurants.

  • Lynn was great!
    She met us on arrival, showed us around, and recommended local restaurants we might like that are kid friendly. She even picked some plums from her trees for us. The place is comfortable and kitchen was functional ( we only used it for breakfast ). The area is wonderful. Felt safe walking the streets and the downtown restaurant area was a short walk. Our little one loved the trains!
    We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

  • This was an outstanding place to stay. It's perfectly clean, and the host, Lynn, seems to have thought of everything. The apartment is quite spacious, with a fully equipped living room where you could entertain a bunch of people (I didn't), a perfectly fine kitchen with a Keurig coffee machine and a great supply of K-cups, as well as a few essential items in the fridge. The bedroom was very comfortable, with high quality linens, and the bathroom was spotless, with an excellent shower.
    I've only stayed at a handful of airbnbs, and this ranks among the very top. Lynn is very friendly and helpful. She gave me a brief tour and orientation when I arrived. Because I was there on business, I didn't hang out, but I was encouraged to use the hot tub if I liked. Lynn also left a personalized welcome card with her phone/text number, offering assistance if I needed it. If you're a tourist, there's an abundance of SF tour books and maps. I hope the apartment is available when I'm next in town.

  • We had a very positive experience at Lynn and Joe Feeney's lodging.
    Highly recommend it to a traveler.

  • We stayed 5 nights in Lynn's appartment to visit San Francisco and definitely recommend it.
    Lynn and her family are really nice and thoughtfull people and made us feel very welcome. Lynn even prepared us a welcome basket with Milk, Cheese, and babyfood etc which we appreciated a lot.
    The appartment is spacious, very clean and well equipped. Our baby loved the soft carpet to crawl and the sweet highchair.
    There is a safeway and Starbucks in 3 min walking distance. Train Station is about 15min walking distance and connection to San Francisco Center takes about 1 hour so it might be advisable to have a rental car.
    Burlingame is also a nice town with lots of shops and restaurants.
    Thank you Lynn, we hope to stay in your home again!!

  • The week we spent at Lynn's place was awesome. She has a wonderful garden which we used in our leisure time to relax. Both the house and the neighborhood are clean and friendly.
    Lynn is great. She helped us a lot, even days before we arrived. We never would have found our favorite coffee shop for breakfast.
    We definitely will stay there again.

    Response from Lynn:

    Thanks Minou! I have made it more clear on the description that the stove/oven is not hooked up and indicated it is a single burner cooktop. The pictures do not show much of the oven but we will try to take another picture that completely eliminates the oven from the picture. Have a wonderful rest of your trip!

    May 2014
  • We had a wonderful stay and felt very comfortable with all the amenities provided. Within walking distance of everything and beautiful neighborhood. Very accomodating and will definitely return when we are back in the area. Thanks Lynn for your wonderful hospitality!

About
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 25 years. My husband and I are parents of two - one in college at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and the other a high school student just beginning to think about the right place for her. As an Airbnb host, I know what's important as a guest. We are clean, respectful and friendly!
