I had a great stay with Stan and Maggie. Maggie was very welcoming and flexible about some travel issue I had that led to a delayed arrival. The flat itself is spacious for one or two with separate living room with efficiency kitchenette, bath room and dining room. The rooms are decorated with an eclectic mix of art and furniture that give them real charm, as do the original hardwood floors. The apartment is located within walking distance of Broadway Ave in Burlingame, which has coffee shops, bars, restaurants, a drugstore, etc. It is also walking distance to the Caltrain station for easy access to SF or Silicon Valley. The street itself is busy and you will occasionally hear the Caltrain go by, but these were not issues for me and I enjoyed the central, walkable location. The apartment is also quite close to the SF Airport...perhaps 10 minutes. Burlingame is a wonderful little town on the mid-Peninsula and a great spot from which to explore the Bay Area and SF without staying right in SF. Also a few minutes (and potentially walkable) from the apartment is Burlingame Avenue with more upscale shopping and dinning options. This is a great place to stay!

This is a very homey and quaint space that beats staying in a hotel any day! Very nice touches, charm and character. Excellent communication and hosting!

This cottage is darling and has everything we needed! It is so cute and we loved having a separate bedroom! Stan & Maggie were wonderful hosts and were always there if we needed anything. We love Burlingame and this cottage is within walking distance to great food, fun times and best of all close to our son's house! You will love staying there!

Stan & Maggie User ProfileStan & Maggie is a superhost.

Life is to be lived!
Stan is a musician, originally from New York, Maggie is from England, a painter/interior designer, both friendly and easygoing. We met in San Francisco and love to travel and visit friends and family.
When we're not hopping around Europe, we like to host musical evenings here and in local venues. Several times during the year Maggie opens her studio to art lovers, we love to include our guests when possible.
