Please respect our neighbors by assuring quiet enjoyment by all!! Absolutely NO smoking please!
Our stay in the adorable Paloma Cottage was great! We arrived very late at night and accommodations were made to ensure our arrival went smoothly. Brian thinks of everything! :-) The fruit basket left for us to enjoy was a wonderful touch to start our vacation. I really liked the fact that we could enjoy the San Fran area, but be just a tad bit away to avoid the traffic and congestion. It was a perfect location! Parking on the street was very easy. The Paloma Cottage is located in a beautiful city worth exploring as well. I would definitely book again!!
I booked Paloma Cottage for my parents when they were visiting Burlingame. Both they and myself couldn't have been more pleased. The location and space were both excellent—affordable, extremely close to Burlingame downtown, and a 20 min drive to downtown San Francisco.
Brian was an extremely friendly and accommodating host. He worked with me very patiently when I needed to extend my parents' trip at the last minute. Overall, this was one of the best Airbnb experiences I've ever had!
Brian's place was exactly as described, very clean and nestled in a quiet neighborhood. Easy access to the 101 for getting around. Walking distance (2 blocks) to the essentials like Starbucks, Walgreens, local restaurants, grocery store, etc. Street side parking was never an issue either.
Would definitely look to stay here again when I'm back in the area.
I had a great experience at Brian's cottage. Check in was super easy. Although I didn't use it, it was nice that there was a stove and oven in case anyone wanted to cook. We had everything we needed and it was super clean and modern. Great location. We were able to walk to Broadway to eat and buy groceries. Would definitely stay there again if we needed a place in the peninsula.
Paloma Cottage was comfortable, clean and well appointed. There is total privacy from the main house. It is well lit at night with its own gated entrance. Brian gave us a nice welcome basket of fresh fruit. He has designed a great studio with incredible efficient use of space. The bed was very comfortable and great water pressure in the shower. We had no problems finding a parking space on the street. We felt very safe walking around the neighborhood. It is very quiet and well tended. We look forward to staying at Paloma Cottage when we return to this area. It felt like a great home away from home!
The cottage is on a nice quiet street, yet very close to a cute little row of businesses and restaurants. Brian checked in a couple of times, but really respected our privacy. The fruit and coffee/tea left to welcome us was a thoughtful touch. If you have a rental car and don't mind being a bit out of the city, I would definitely recommend staying at the cottage. Having the kitchen was super convenient. My only wish was that the sink and shower were a bit bigger, but you can only do so much with a little space :)

About the Host, Brian
I am from Ashland, OR, just across the Oregon border. I have been in San Francisco for 15 years now. I recently moved to Burlingame and find the town feel a lot like home. Yet, can be in the city in minutes so its a perfect combination.
