Better than any hotel, hands down. Friendly hosts, cozy environment, convenient location. Maggie and Stan are warm and welcoming individuals and I knew there was a reason I chose their place a second time!
Accurate listing, quiet neighborhood. Perfect for my work trip!
The location was good, Maggie and Stan was very welcoming and nice, they did a lot of extra stuff to make me comfortable.
However, I felt I was not getting the privacy level I needed from that place. Maggie would do get into my private spaces when I was not home, almost everyday, to make clean-ups of course, nothing else. (however I did not ask for them)
And she would then ask me questions about how I use the bathroom, what some of my personal belongings in the room are about etc. She would also ask questions about the things her neighbors see me doing (like me walking with a luggage, I would have to explain her what I do walking with my luggage)
All in all, if you are looking for a place to stay and don't mind privacy too much, this is a good place.
I wish she was more hands off and then this would have been a really good stay.
As I said in my review, Ali is a nice guy, but I feel does not understand the Airbnb concept. I prefer guests to be independent.
Apart from your free weekly clean up and linen change, I went in to your space, Ali, to set up the put you up bed for your sister who you announced was arriving at short notice. That is how I noticed the bathroom floor was flooded! (and cleaned it up for you!) The following day, I took down the bed and opened up the now vacant adjoining listing for you, so that she that could sleep in a proper bed. At no charge! I explained that the rest of that listing was not for you to use and we would be doing some maintenance there. That is why I noticed the prototype equipment you had left running and downloading unattended. LOL Ali, my neighbors thought you were robbing the place, lugging suitcases constantly back and forth!
They say no good turn goes unpunished! and in this case its true!
The apartment was cozy and our stay was comfortable. It was very close to SFO and travelling to downtown SF was only a short trip away. Met with lovely Maggie on the first & last days of our stay, she made our arrival easy and we were able to start our vacay right away!!!
I had a wonderful time. The place is quite comfortable, and just as adorable as shown in the listing. I never had the chance to meet Stan, but Maggie is delightful, and so very helpful. I'd love to stay again when I'm back in the Burlingame area.
Thanks a lot for Maggie and Stan!:)
Nice and very-very cosy house, perfect for pairs and single travellers. Homemade jam and fresh pastry were right what was needed in the morning after the 20 hours flight) My hosts were so friendly to meet me and tell about the nearest shops and transport, really helpful)
Only good memories about my staying! Thank you!:)
This was a terrific place to stay. It's extremely comfortable, with lots of little extra touches - fruit, bedside chocolates, lovely toiletries. The wifi was fast. There are interesting shops and cafes just a short stroll away. And best of all Maggie was just terrific about picking me up from the station and dropping me off at the airport. She's a great host, friendly and very helpful. Altogether a great stay.
