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.

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.

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. Please note that a standard twin bed is 38" x 75" and the portable that we have is 36.5" x 72" which works very well for children and smaller adults. Taller teens and adults should keep this size in mind when evaluating our apartment to possibly rent. I add a memory foam mattress to make the bed more comfortable.

This is a roomy 1 bedroom apt, just south of SFO. Easy drive to either Silicon Valley or to the City. Clean, light, comfortable bed, nice linens, kitchen equipped with all you need. Lynn was very helpful and available, even for a very late check-in.

We had a great stay at this facility run by an excellent hostess Lynn. The facility is within a two minute walk from CVS and a grocery store so it was very convenient to shop and cook our breakfast etc. It is about 10 minutes from the airport (so very convenient for people who need to catch an early flight) We were a party of three and the facility comfortably "housed us". Since Lynn and her family live on top for the rented facility she was always available when we need guidance on local restaurants etc and she seems to be a "foodie" so her suggestions turned out to be great. The beds were very conformable and Lynn even provided a comfortable foam top for the pull out bed (thanks Lynn). Being very detail oriented she took the trouble to measure the pullout bed to make sure we would fit on it comfortably. Finally, she pleasantly surprised us by processing a partial refund as during part of the stay we had only two people staying there (as opposed to the three we had booked for).

Very comfortable place, we felt like we were in our own home. Lynn and her husband were very welcoming and kind. Also, the neighborhood was so peaceful and quiet. We were close to everything. Next time we are in the area, we will definitely be back!

Impeccably clean, elegantly furnished, and thoughtfully equipped. We felt at home and had everything we needed. The location was also perfect for our runs to SF and Palo Alto. Not surprised by the high ratings she's gotten, Lynn is a super host!

Lynn and Joe is a great couple and great host with full of hospitality. No wonder they are super hosts. I stayed at this place for a week. I am very satisfied with the comfortable and clean guest house, and their beautiful garden. Close to everything as well. There is Safeway in a few minutes walk It was very nice to have dinner at restaurants around Burlingame station. I will definitely come back again.

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!
