The SpaceOur 1909 Craftsman-style Home has a 2 bedroom garden apartment suite with its own entrance and access to outdoor garden patio. The large bathroom has Jacuzzi tub and separate stall shower.Unfortunatly the Jacuzzi tub is not in use right now due to the drought in California as we are required to cut back our water supply. We are located in a nice neighborhood a few blocks walk to the park, shops and restaurants, as well as bus, train, and BART underground to the delights of San Francisco.
The great advantage of our home is its central location. Our community is positioned in the middle of everything. We are about halfway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley; near the SFO airport on the beautiful San Francisco Peninsula close to wonderful and stylish cities like Burlingame, San Mateo, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Silicon Valley, and Stanford University.
Our guests may rent a car to enjoy all the delights and fascinations of the San Francisco Bay Area, including the Redwoods at Muir Valley, or the wonderful beaches of Pacifica, Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterrey, Carmel, and Big Sur. Public transit by bus and train is about five blocks walk. San Bruno is home to the remodeled Tanforan Shopping Center (the local BART underground station), YouTube headquarters, and (website hidden), and Microsoft affiliates. Tours and day-trips to Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, and Napa-Sonoma Wine Country are available in San Francisco.
We are seven minutes by taxi from SFO Airport. Within reach of a short taxi ride there are many wonderful walks along the Crystal Springs lakes, along the San Francisco Bay shoreline in Milbrae and Burlingame, or along the Bay in Foster City by the old sloughs and reed marshes full of albatros, cranes, ducks and wildlife. Fifteen minutes away, over the hill to Pacifica Ocean Pier and Linda Mare surfing beach give a grand impression of the California Pacific coast. The new tunnel will soon be open to the world renown "Mavericks" surfing event, and delightful Half Moon Bay fishing fleet harbor, beaches, and sanctuaries.
For those who like stunning architecture and urban landscaping, Burlingame and San Mateo offer a wide array of styles from all over the world thanks to the amazing carpenters and builders who came to rebuild San Francisco after the Great Quake.
