This was my second stay at Stan & Maggie's place. It's centrally located in the mid-peninsula and easy to get to everything. Very walkable. I walked to Starbucks in the AM and dinner in the evening -- lots of shops and restaurants are on nearby Broadway. The CalTrain stop is very close and I discovered on this stay that BART is also walkable (about 25 min away). The flat itself has lovely original hardwood floors and is nicely decorated with eclectic furnishings and the host's artwork. The bathroom has been updated. Maggie is very responsive and quick to return emails and texts. Would definitely stay with them again!

Maggie and Stan were wonderful hosts. Their communication was prompt, clear, friendly and incredibly responsive. And, their approach to hosting was thoughtful at every turn (Maggie left tomatoes from their garden for me one day, a very kind gesture). I would have no hesitation staying with them again.

Stan and Maggie have a lovely place in a residential section of Burlingame. It is cozy and the decor is very charming. I had everything I needed. It was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was well-stocked. The bedroom was comfortable and tastefully decorated. The bed is very soft, which might be a problem for some, but I found it very comfortable. There is a small kitchen area with all the necessaries for preparing coffee/tea and snacks. There is fast WiFi and smart TV with Roku. The house is a 5-10 minute walk from Burlingame's Main Street, where I found everything I needed, including plenty of restaurant choices. The Millbrae, Broadway, and Burlingame transit stops are all within a short distance, if you need to catch the Caltrain or BART. It's very easy to get an Uber, also, with response within ten minutes at even the busiest times of day. My hosts were so kind and accommodating, providing me with plenty of extras to keep me comfortable, and also sharing their delicious fresh fruit and vegetables. This was a perfect stay and well worth the price for the Bay Area.

Stan & Maggie were very welcoming and helpful as they guided me through my first Airbnb experience. Communication was excellent and Maggie was very quick to reply to any questions - and to offer a ride from the train station after a busy day in San Francisco! The neighborhood is very close to shops & great restaurants. The apartment was so comfortable and cozy, so much better than a hotel!

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.
