Home away from home!

House - Entire home/apt · Dwight Road, Burlingame, CA 94010, United States

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 microwave, a toaster oven, a Keurig coffeemaker and an electric hot water kettle, as well as plenty of tableware. Please note that the full size oven/stovetop is not hooked up but there is a portable cooktop and a good sized toaster oven. 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.

- 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 5-7 minute walk and downtown Burlingame is just beyond the train station where there are wonderful shops and restaurants.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • it is the sedond time we stay with Lynn and we are delighted; we fell absolutely at home and knowing better Lynn and her family was a real plesaure.
    Our only regret is having been too busy to spend more tome with them!

    April 2014
  • Lynn's home away from home was just that! Lynne and Joe went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home. Not only was the kitchen stocked with treats for our little one when we arrived, but when we left Lynne offered to come bring us an item we forgot in the fridge to the airport! We regularly visit family in the area and are so grateful that we have found this gem.

  • I had a great stay at Lynn’s apartment, and she was an excellent and thoughtful host. The condo was comfortable, well equipped and clean – and the bed was very good with luxury linen. It’s a quiet and cozy place at a great location in Burlingame with Safeway and other stores nearby. It’s also in walking distance to the Caltrain station, which was very convenient since I used it to commute in the Valley. Lynn was so kind to pick me up there when I arrived with a lot of luggage. I found coffee, tea and a welcome basket of goodies in the kitchen, so this is definitely a home away from home. I highly recommend it, and I'd love to come back some other time.

    March 2014
  • Absolutely wonderful hosts! Lovely apartment, perfect location, lots of special extras! Thanks for allowing us to share your home!

    February 2014
  • What a wonderful place and wonderful host!! Lynn went out of her way to make my parents feel comfortable during their stay. My inlaws will be staying there soon!!

    February 2014
  • Lynn's room is very cozy and is well-decorated. We also have our own kitchen which is convenient to a three-people family. Lynn also introduced us a lot of things that we are interested in and help us to arrange. We not only had an amazing experience here, but also made some good friends. I'm glad that I made the choice to stay here.

    February 2014
  • It's a really nice place :) We hope that we can stay here again!

    February 2014
  • A beautiful place to stay. My girlfriend and I recently made the move from the east coast and landed at Lynn's Home away from home! The hospitality was fantastic and was a perfect location for us hunting for apartments at night while working out of San Mateo.

    January 2014
  • Lynn and her family are awesome hosts. They went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect including setting up a hotub and fire pit for me and my son. Lynn even taught my son to play billiards in her game room. I highly recommend her lovely home for anyone who wants to stay in the South Bay.

    January 2014
  • Lynn was incredibly warm, kind and accommodating. I can only say good things. If you are looking for a beautiful, convenient place to stay with a fantastic host - look no farther.

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!
