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!

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!

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.
