Why Stephanie Gildred chose Central San Mateo
I grew up in Northern California and Graduated from Mills High. This property was passed down from generation. The location is the most attractive part of this property, since it is walking distance to the most charming city in California-Burlingame. From O'Brien's Bar to Copenhagen Restaurant, and all nationally known shops along the STREETSCAPE IN Downtown Burlingame, it offers everything. Only a short trip by car to the most electrifying city in the World, San Francisco to the other direction-Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Ca.
What makes this Apartment unique
My property is special to me because it meant so much to my Late Mother. She put so much of herself in the property, we probably overspent in our complete remodel. I wanted to make Lorton a showplace of California charm. We have added all of the right touches to make the property a place I would be glad to live and reside. The comfort and ease of being close to every amenity such as walking around the corner to Massage Envy for a facial to a manicure on the other corner, it is a wonderful place to gather yourself.

Great location for trip to Bay Area
Our host, Stephanie, was very attuned to our requests for information and advice ahead of our trip and made us very welcome when we arrived. The apartment was clean and cozy with Wi-Fi, Netflix, cooking utensils, and coffee. The apartment is well furnished and close to grocery store and restaurants in downtown Burlingame. The train to downtown San Francisco is close and easy and is about a 30 minute ride. The apartment is about 15 minutes from San Francisco airport. We highly recommend this rental.
This was a perfect place to stay during my weekend in Burlingame. Close to so many shops and restaurants; and very conveniently located to my event at the Masonic Hall. Clean, comfortable and very charming studio. The host adds extra touches to make you feel at home. Thank you!!
Great rental, awesome host!
Our first trip to San Francisco for my wife’s birthday, Stephanie was amazing at adding a personal touch to our welcome with a bottle of wine and some birthday cupcakes. We did have a rental car because we had very specific plans, but if we had not had a rental car this rental is extremely close to a lot of restaurants, shops and transit. Stephanie was just a call away in case we needed anything. It was perfectly located just far enough to avoid the expensive restaurants of downtown San Francisco, but close enough to be able to drive downtown and do all the tourist sight seeing. Stephanie has thought of all the details for you, coffees teas, extra toiletries and food spices for cooking. I read some reviews mentioning upstairs noise, but it’s the same that you would get at any hotel, nothing excessive. The private parking was perfect! The kitchen was great, with a Safeway just blocks away, the rental was clean and felt like a junior suite with the added luxury of a kitchen. I would highly recommend this rental. Thanks again to Stephanie for making this extra special for my wife’s birthday.
Thank you, again, for choosing us for your first trip to San Francisco and for your great review!
We hope your travels lead you back to us, anytime.

Lovely place, lovely people
We were very well cared for by the owners. They even had wine, fresh bread, and a toy for our son when we arrived. The place was nicely decorated and well equipped for cooking. I was surprised how close we were to restaurants, shopping, and parks.
I would highly recommend this location.
Host was one of the best we have had in 10 years.
The host took a personal interest in our needs. Insignificant items like a tv control were immediately taken care of - with a replacement tv no less ! Stephanie left us a bottle of wine, but even better, she was so thoughtful that she had breakfast foods in the fridge on our arrival, since she knew we had a morning flight into SFO. She gave us early checkin and late checkout. And contacted us every few days to check on us. She also, at her own cost, sent in a housecleaner halfway through our 3 week stay.
The unit itself is fairly petite but it was immaculate and comfy. Its like a large suite with kitchen, as there is only a small living room/kitchen. So its ideal for short stays. Burlingame Ave is one block away, which is why we booked. Parking on property was included.
Bottom line, its worth booking just to experience the perfect host !
Thank you for your kind words! We loved having you stay.
Giants Weekend Getaway
This was a charming and super-clean apartment that was perfect for our date weekend getaway. We chose Burlingame for its close proximity to San Francisco, but without the hustle-bustle of the city. We found the perfect place. It was just the right size for my husband and I and close enough to downtown Burlingame that we didn't need our car for most of the time we were there. We strolled downtown for breakfast and dinners, and ate lunch in the apartment. The apartment is bright and cozy and has basically everything you might need. We celebrated my husband's birthday and arrived to a great bottle of chilled champagne, cupcakes, and flowers. What a welcome! Caltrain is basically a 4 minute walk and was the perfect ride to the Giants' game - 20 minute ride and a 5 minute walk to the stadium. The only difficulty we had was getting two seats on the train - so take an early train to the game if that's one of your destinations. We had everything we needed within walking distance - Starbucks, David's Tea, Peets' Coffee, Safeway, Mollie Stones, salons, a candy store, bakeries, cafes, sushi, thai, burgers... you name it and it's walking distance. Stephanie and Tom were available via text and responsive to questions while we were there. It was a wonderful stay!
