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:).
Booked this very last minute after a flight delay & it was super simple to coordinate. Thanks!
Lisa is always friendly and make this place really a home.
Her dog Julia is also quite docile and could be a good company.
Last but not the least, Lisa prepares great breakfast.
Amazing. Wonderful kingsize very comfortable bed, great location, lovely breakfast and the sweetest most wonderful host you can imagine. She even arranged a cab for me to get too the airport. You will not be disappointed.
Lisa is an incredibly warm and welcoming host. Her house is a beautiful historic home nestled in the center of a lovely city. The room was gorgeous, the bed was almost too comfortable (I didn't want to leave it in the mornings), and Lisa provided us with a wonderfully fresh breakfast each morning. I would highly recommend staying here. As an added bonus, you get to play with her adorable dog and cat.
Lisa is a wonderful host. Walking in the door I was greeted like a family member. So friendly and engaging. The house is gorgeous and decorated beautifully. The bedroom was very nice, great bed, comfortable, quiet, slept well. The breakfast spread Lisa put out was better than most bed n breakfasts I've stayed at. Walked to downtown Burlingame just a few blocks away. Very convenient, safe and everything you could want. Would most definitely stay again.
Great house, inviting and cozy with a great location. Wasn't as noisy as I thought it was going to be that close to a major road. Great hospitality.

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:).
