I enjoyed my stay at Mike and Diane's place so much that I returned for a second visit. The hosts are extremely thoughtful and have really considered every detail of the experience; A hand written welcome card on the bed, some wine in the refrigerator and extra toiletries in the …

I adored this place. I needed a place that was tranquil, quiet, safe and energetically positive and serene and I found exactly that. Diane was away but Mike was there to answer any questions I had. He introduced me to the lovely place. Diane is truly good at what she does, that y…

This is a lovely place to stay and Diane and Mike are great hosts! I highly recommend it if you’re looking to spend time in or have business in Burlingame or the San Mateo area. It’s also very easy to get into San Francisco on the Caltrain. This is an idyllic cottage to come back…

I stayed at Diane & Mike's place twice. Overall the place is "cute" but it about ends there. Some issues with my stays: - To get to your cottage, you walk through an outdoor hallway of cobwebs & flies, that sometimes make their way into the cottage itself. The owners refuse to r…

Response from Diane And Mike:
This is a very sad and bitter response because we denied Blair's cancellation. Everything that is mentioned above is either an out and out lie or gross exaggeration. The bucket is emptied in the garden by the hosts NOT by the guest. The manual has 2 pages of check in and out. The rest of the manual is simply telling about restaurants and the like in the area. There is a recycling and composting container in the cottage. At no time did we tell her to go the driveway. And to say that we are spiteful and sarcastic is pitiful and mean. Our response is in the Airbnb thread and we were kind and respectful. And Airbnb agreed with our decision.

I really enjoyed staying at Diane and Mike’s! It was a wonderfully peaceful place to escape to after a busy day at work. And, Burlingame is a fun place to explore as well. Commuting to and from San Mateo and San Francisco via train couldn’t have been easier! It’s less than …

Diane and Mike were incredibly hospitable from the moment I walked in. They wrote me a cute welcome note & offered nice touches like fresh granola in the morning (I have yet to try the granola, but it's there). The cottage is very quaint and private. I would stay again, and have …
