  • I generally enjoyed my stay here. Maggie was very kind, and responsive to my contact.

    Pros:
    Comfy bed, clean apartment, excellent host, close to Burlingame downtown (small downtown)
    Cons:
    The apartment is across the street from the railroad and you will be hearing all the trains pass by, and the bed will gently shake.
    Much smaller TV than what is on the picture (it was world cup season, and I was looking forward to watching games there and specifically checked for the TV on the pictures)
    The unit doesn't feel as private because it is a division of the main house and you can hear things behind the wall.
    The cleaning fee ($50 a day) did not feel justified to me. I only stayed there two days, and paid the cleaning fee for two days, but the place was not cleaned on the second day. Generally, I would rather see this place advertised with the cleaning fee in the main price rather than having a separate, smaller headline price.

    Response from Stan & Maggie:

    I'm so sorry that you had some issues, I wish you had communicated them so that we could resolve them.
    Firstly, as advertised this is an urban area with some urban noise, and I suspect you felt one of many many small earthquakes.
    2. When you checked in, I said to tell me if you needed anything, we would have happily swopped the TV for a larger one. You only asked about restaurants.
    3. I don't know quite what you heard but as I said this is an urban area, however, the part of the house adjoining the apartment is only used about 1 hour a day.
    4. This is not a serviced apartment. The one time cleaning fee is to clean and sanitize the apartment BEFORE you arrive.
    Finally, one of the big differences between Airbnb and a hotel, you expected to look after the hosts home, to turn things off, both electrical and showers, to close and lock the street door, most important when you don't have the good manners to advise of your checkout time.

  • Super clean and well equipped. Maggie met me and let me in, offered some good dining and parking tips. On street parking was never a problem, and the neighborhood was safe. Hosts were prompt in returning texts. A pleasant and convenient alternative with minutes drive to SFO.

  • I really enjoyed staying at Maggie's place. They were very warm and welcoming. Maggie helped me a lot with every question i had. And her dog, Sam, is awesome! So cute.
    The appartment was cosy and clean. From the first moment it felt like home.

  • I had a fantastic stay at Stan and Maggie's. I was there for a wedding in Redwood City and many pre-wedding festivities in San Francisco. Their home was perfectly situated. It is extremely convenient, especially if you are travelling all over the Bay Area as we were. The space itself was lovely. Very clean and nicely decorated with beautiful paintings. The bed is extremely comfortable (and I am picky!). Maggie was easy to communicate with, leaving very clear instructions and responding to my emails immediately. I highly recommend staying here.

  • Burlingame is a lovely little city. Very clean, safe and quaint, with 2 beautiful downtowns. The rental unit is very nice, comfortable and well-equipped. Maggie is such a wonderful host. She really goes above and beyond. When we arrived it was equipped with everything we'd need for breakfast in the morning for the duration of our stay: biscotti, rolled oats, croissants, coffee, cream and juice. The purpose of our stay was to find a rental since we will be moving to the peninsula area permanently and Maggie was so helpful, even letting me know of available rentals, what forms we'd need, and showing me all the safe areas and any to avoid. She really goes above and beyond as a host. Highly recommend staying here!

  • My mother-in-law and sister-in-law stayed at Stan & Maggie's on their trip out to visit our newborn daughter. The place was great! Very clean and exactly as described. When we arrived, Maggie greeted us warmly and showed us around the place (and the garden + plants outside too, a big plus for my mother-in-law). Maggie provided breakfast and coffee for the morning which were great. When we were checking out, Maggie went the extra mile and left my mother-in-law some cuttings from the succulents which she'd been admiring in the garden outside. All-in-all a great experience - would definitely reserve again!

  • Stan and Maggie's is a very cozy and convenient place to stay on the peninsula. I didn't initially understand there was not a full kitchen in the unit, but Maggie was extremely gracious and accommodating in assisting with some special dietary concerns. I would go back just for the homemade orange marmalade. YUM! Thank you both.

  • Our second stay was as delightful as I first. This is a comfortable, homey apartment with some very nice art hanging on the walls.

    It was great to host you again :) Wish we had been able to catch up but I think the family kept you in a whirl!

  • Maggie welcomed me after my flight got in late on Sunday evening. The place was clean, well-decorated, and conveniently located close to downtown Burlingame (a few minutes walking). I had plenty of privacy, but knew Maggie was in communication if I needed anything at all. Great hosts, great place - will be back next time I'm in the area!
