Our neighborhood is wonderful and walking distance to a newly renovated Burlingame Ave where new restaurants are popping up, + a vast array shops, boutiques and coffee houses.

You are greeted in the morning with a selection of fresh fruit, yogurt, granola assorted cereal, teas, coffee. Homemade breads or muffins with sweet butter and jam too.
Let's start with respect. We love our home and it is furnished with love and with lovely 'anthropologie' type furnishings, so please be considerate. We can also supply a cleaning crew for additional $, in which we are happy to set up.
We have the home professional cleaned with every new booking. Kindly leave the home the way you received it. Thanks for your consideration. Also, PLEASE, PLEASE kindly pick up after your pooches! I want to continue offering our home for humans and animals, however, we have had some problems with folks forgetting to clean up after their pets. We are huge pet lovers, we just don't want our other 'non pet' guests smelling anything other than our 'clean smelling' home:).
Lisa was the best host, her home is warm , comfortable and beautiful. Upon my arrival, I was shown to a room that was nothing but comfort, and she had a nice fruit & cheese tray waiting.
Each morning, the breakfast is also wonderful, with fresh fruit, a variety of teas, coffee, yogurt, warm bread Lisa goes above and beyond to make you feel at home. My 3 day stay could not have been nicer. In addition to a beautiful bedroom and an amazing breakfast, she also included my dog Wylie on her morning walk.
I agree with all the other nice comments! Will absolute stay with Lisa and her dog Julia next time I visit the bay area. So welcoming and helpful with everything! (and great coffee!)
Awesome, Wonderful, Excellent! Lisa was Awesome. Very kind and genuinely a great person and hostess. Wonderful location. Walking distance to the Caltrain and downtown Burlingame. Only a few minutes from SF airport. I walked to Caltrain for 30 minute ride to downtown SF and 30 minutes the other direction to visit my daughter at Stanford. Excellent decor, breakfast, welcome tray, bedding, and neighborhood. It was like staying in a cute little doll house.
Lisa has been a perfect host. Her house is perfectly located if you need to reach the airport or if you want to travel to Palo Alto. Restaurants are all over the place and it is a short distance to Caltrain. Lisa cares a lot for her guests and allways has some good advice.
Lisa was great! Her home is open like southern hospitality (inviting and warm). She was very responsive and quick to respond to questions or concerns. The photos are very acurate of the home. I loved her house because it was quiant and quirky with its own personality. There is parking if you need it. She makes a cute little breakfast set up and provides tea or coffee. She even offers help with laundry if you need it :) Lisa is also a great conversation if you get a chance to talk. I'd most certainly recommend staying here! The only thing that was not enjoyable was a mosquito followed me into my room and bit me a couple times and I have unsightly reactions to bites :( Unfortunately, I don't think that is something Lisa could help with because I am like a magent to those pesky blood suckers. My boyfriend managed to catch it and kill it and get away bug bite free. Only suggestion is to try not to let the bug follow you in because there are some in the neighborhood.
I've never stayed in an airbnb before, but this was a really positive experience. Everything was very laid back, and Lisa was very welcoming. Breakfast every morning was great, and the bed was super comfy. The neighborhood is definitely very safe and makes you feel right at home.
Lisa's house is charming and very comfortable. She provided everything I could possibly need, including a great cup of coffee and to go breakfast at 5:30 in the morning. She is just a few minutes from the airport, so this is the place to stay if you're flying out early. Thanks Lisa!

About the Host, Lisa Myshall
I love to entertain, it's how I have made a living for the last couple of decades. Our home is very relaxed, easy going & busy too! I love all that family involves; laughter of kids, warm smells of housebaked desserts, animals underfoot & about, wonderful conversation & of course, quiet time with a book that's been calling my name, for ahem, months to read:).
