Centrally located between Downtown and Belmont Shore, this large one room bungalow is fully equipped with stove / refrigerator and bath. The completely remodeled space sits in a lovely, quiet garden with tall bamboos for privacy .
This bungalow is extremely private, with a separate gate for entry. Guests come and go as they please. The bungalow is set in a large garden lined with tall bamboos and a lawn area directly in front of the space. There are lounge chairs for tanning and a lovely, private, outdoor shower set in a corner amongst the bamboos. The setting is Asian/Tropical and is truly special.
Accès des voyageurs
There is a counter area for dining within the bungalow, or guests are welcome to use the outdoor table on the patio under beer garden lighting. The ambiance of the yard is warm and cozy. The entire Garden is available for Guests to use, including the outdoor shower!

We spend some time in the garden in the early morning and afternoons, and our dogs have access to the yard when we are at home (and occasionally when we run to the market or make a short errand). Our friends visit with their dogs (sometimes overnight). Sahar who lives here part time is a dog groomer and occasionally grooms client's dogs in a groom studio in back yard. We love dogs!! Small dogs will be considered for short term stays at a nominal fee. PLEASE INQUIRE BEFORE USING INSTABOOK WITH DETAILS OF YOUR DOG!
I love traveling and interacting with other travelers. I I also respect one's privacy and get it if you wish to just chill and enjoy the zen feel of the place. It's entirely up to you! The space is ideal for couples or others who don't mind sharing a full-sized bed. (Please note the sofa bed is a fold out futon-style love seat and it best suited for a smaller sized person or child. It is not a sofa bed with a "mattress.")
Late night check in is completely fine, just let us know! The day of arrival, you will receive a message with instructions on entering the property. Remember check in is at 3pm, and check out is at 11am.
Please check before bringing your dog! I often dog sit and sometimes it may not be feasible to have an extra dog on the property. If I decide it is a fit, please never leave your dog unattended in the bungalow for more than 2 hours. Barking has been an issue! And my dogs bark when they hear a dog inside. It is $10 extra per dog, two dogs maximum, if we agree that it is a fit.
Enjoy the garden!! Laughter welcome and encouraged! There is a small fence in between the Guest courtyard and the rest of the garden. If Guests wish to use the rest of the Garden, they are very welcome to do so, just a head's up that dogs jump and like to play! No one has ever minded, but we like everyone to know that there are dogs on the property (again, please contact us about YOUR dogs and we can discuss if they can be a match with mine)!
More that three adult Guests is too tight. There is a futon-style love seat for the third guest, or I can provide an air mattress. There is a charge for the third guest, so please book accurately.
My friends smoke and vape in my backyard when visiting. Please notify me if this is a problem before you book and we can discuss.
Please do not put any foreign objects (other than toilet paper) in the sinks or toilets. If there is damage which is found to be from any objects other than toilet paper, the Guest may be charged for such damage (a copy of plumbing report can be provided).
Parking is street parking only. As with many Airbnb listings in my area, it is a residential neighborhood and there are some other multi-family homes. That being said, Guests have always found parking, however, sometimes it is harder than others. I conduct a business from home and need the driveway for friends and customers. We have tried to accommodate Guests and have been parked in and missed appointments.
Dogs may stay upon prior approval on a case by case basis for a nominal fee. Please don't use InstaBook if you have dogs, just send and inquiry so we can discuss!
Let me know if you need Airport transfers. I am also a Uber driver! I will get you hooked up. I have a decent supply of Indie and Foreign Films on DVD, so let me know if you would like to borrow one. The Bungalow has Roku, but you will need your own Amazon or Netflix Account in order to use it. WiFi works great in the Bungalow.
Please let me know the day before if you need beach chairs and a beach umbrella and I can put those out for you. Please wash off sandy feet before entering the bungalow; there is a house in the courtyard. Guest is responsible for cleaning up any/all pet refuse. All pets must be treated with a flea and tick repellent three days prior to arrival and be up to date on bordetella vaccines. If you take your dog to the dog beach, please go to a self wash (next to our dog beach) and wash your baby before bringing him/her back into the bungalow. Pets must not cause damage to premises or furnishings. We can give you the name of a pet sitters in the area.
Note that there is NO daily maid service, but I can replenish your towels (and sheets for longer stays). ** Please turn off porch light during the day.**
Please let me know if you need anything and I'll do my best to help you out!
Enjoy your stay! Laura

I love my dogs, travel, exotic food, and life in general. I am constantly on the go - here and there and am in and out a lot. The dogs are mostly inside, especially when guests are present, but I love to practice agility and play catch with them when time permits. I am a Long Beach native and we have lived in Germany and Peru. I've traveled the globe, especially Africa, South East Asia and Latin America. I love to share and swap stories of the road with guests. I moved into the house in Rose Park in June of 2014 (all I had to see was the bamboo and I wanted the property) and have fallen in love with the melting pot of cultures and energy here. I just upgraded the garden and am super excited to share it with new guests! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Bienvenidos!
