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!

Description

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 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 coffee and tea supplies, a welcome basket of goodies (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 our fire pit and hot tub.

Due to the drought, we are currently not able to offer laundry facilities.
ALSO, NO SMOKING anywhere on the property, including inside the apartment or outside in the front or back yards.

Bonuses!
- We have high-speed wireless Internet that you are welcome to utilize.
- You will have access to office facilities including printer, fax machine, 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.

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 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.

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 10-15 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.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check-in is after 3PM

We have been very fortunate to have guests that respect our apartment suite and keep it clean and neat as they would their own home.

Please no loud music and NO SMOKING of any kind anywhere on the property, including inside the apartment and outside in the front or back yards. As much as we love animals, we do not allow them in the apartment suite to avoid any allergy issues with future guests.

California is still experiencing drought conditions. Please help to conserve by minimizing the length of showers, turning the water off while brushing teeth, etc. Due to the water restrictions, we are able to provide limited access to the washing machine and dryer.

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!
