À propos de ce logement

This turn-of-the-century home is warm and comforting. The décor is California Craftsman inspired, books in every room, souvenirs from my travels. Public transportation is efficient and close by. Shops, restaurants, coffee cafes are about a short 1/4 mile away. Long Beach always has events and festivals close by for your enjoyment and participation. Most of the time they are free.

Le logement

This home is soo interesting that CSI Miami filmed here for three days, Dexter was here for two days, and various student films have used the place for location filming. You will be using the bathroom used by famous actors :-) It is quiet and comfortable for working or relaxing.

Walk through the front door and turn right, you are in the avaliable bedroom. The bed is queen size and the mattress comfortable.The full bathroom ( shower, BIG ole'tub) is adjacent.
The home is one of the earlier Craftsman Style homes built in Long Beach and still has most of its original features. The kitchen is beautiful and you can use it, as long as you clean up after yourself. I've been told that this house "hugs you" when you come in.

You will awaken to the aroma of coffee, and chose to have breakfast in the dining room, or on the backdeck - or even the front porch, before heading off to your day of sightseeing. When you return you will find chilled wine and snacks, and most likely me to listen to your adventure tales.

Please be aware, this is a very old home,(built in 1908) I live with the windows and doors open all year around, (not at night) this is my home, that I love to share, not a hotel. My home is clean and cozy. It looks exactly like the photos, nothing hidden or changed. Because of its age, doors and windows do not close tightly, if you are looking for "operating room antiseptic" do not book my home, it is old, creaky and has charm not found in a modern hermetically sealed home.

Great restaurants and local favorites are close by. Many visitors enjoy the nearby Aquarium of the Pacific, walking along the boardwalk, walking on the beach, visiting the Japanese Gardens at CSULB, touring the Queen Mary. There are festivals and events all the time in Long Beach, I've probably volunteered for most of them.

Bike rental is available all over Long Beach.

You will be close to bus, train, and the LGB airport. You can walk to Downtown and the Beach. From LAX you can take an Uber for about $25 to be delivered to my home. You can park your car in my driveway. You can get to Hollywood, Universal Studios, downtown Los Angeles by public transport, and it is very affordable.

The room and home are spacious and welcoming. I love to spend time with guests letting them know about out great restaurants, and interesting things to see and do. I have menus from nearby restaurants, some discount coupons and sometimes discount tickets to local attractions.

The room can comfortably sleep two people, only.
I do have two couches that I can provide for an additional fee. No children or pets.

Sometimes my backyard is used for Charity fundraising events, you will invited to participate at no charge, often there is live music, and lots of food. If something like this is scheduled, I will contact you and give you fair warning !!

Accès des voyageurs

Guests have exclusive access to the entire ground floor, including the kitchen, front parlor with its nicely tuned upright piano, dining room with table that seats 12, library, front porch which gives a great visa of the neighborhood folk walking their dogs, back deck which includes seating area and table that can accommodate 10, back yard with its ever changing population of birds visiting the little pond! There are 5 gyms within walking distance, about 8 blocks.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I maintain separate,private living quarters on the second story. I interact with my guests according to their desires, if they want to be left alone, I leave them alone. If my guests want tours, local restaurant information, grocery store information, help with their accent reduction while speaking English, all that is available, even involvement in Long Beach activities.

Autres remarques

Amenities: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, sunscreen, nail polish remover, hairdryer, iron, hangers, closet, drawers. Desk that has room for a lap top.I even have extra toothbrushes if you have forgotten yours. The bathtub is extra big and perfect for a bubble bath, or just use the shower for a quicker clean.

The inside of my home is non-smoking. There are ashtrays on the front porch and the back deck. Playing musical instruments is great, as long as the neighbors do not complain. Pets are not allowed. This home is not suitable for toddlers, or very young children, too much stuff down low. Generally, guests must be respectful and mannered. However, lively conversation,drinking, laughing, having a great time is wonderful.

Diane avait bien préparée notre arrivée et nous attendait comme convenu. Le logement correspondait a l'annonce affiché. Dianne apporte beaucoup de soin et d'attention à ces invités avec divers détails, fleurs, collations, draps propres, bon nombre de serviettes de bain et de plage. J'ai bien aimé pouvoir profiter de la totalité de la maison et de pouvoir inviter mes amis. Le parc en face est très agréable et les pistes cyclables sont proches.

Que dire de Dianne sinon qu'elle est une femme exceptionnelle... Son naturel, sa générosité, sa simplicité ont transformé notre séjour en des moments inoubliables. Vous vous sentez tellement à l'aise chez elle ! La maison ressemble à Dianne.... vous vous y sentirez bien.La maison est en tout point conforme au descriptif mais la seule présence de Dianne compenserait toute imperfection (et il n'y en a pas). Nous n'avons pas quitté une simple hôtesse. Nous avons quitté une amie.

Being ahost is something I truly love. II enjoy listening to the stories of my guests, and sharing the interesting parts of my city of Long Beach. Those that visit my home always want to move in, it is comfy and lovely. The backyard is rustic and great for outdoor dining, always chilled wine in the fridge, just waiting to be enjoyed outside, or by the fireplace.

Whatever type of food you are looking for, I know where to find it in Long Beach and have probably dined there. Cinema is close by, and love the "big screen" experience.
I have been told that I am an interesting person and I have had the opportunity to travel to many parts of our globe, as a volunteer and/or tourist. I look forward to accepting the invitations issued to me by my guests, there are so many places I have not yet visited.

I love to read, there are plenty of books to enjoy in my home. I enjoy cooking as well as food prepared by others :-)
All of the years of my adult life have involved "volunteering" - I have wide ranging interests, historic preservation, National Disaster Red Cross, international education, the arts still and lively, wine events, and whatever is of interest to me at the present time.

A favorite quotation:" Do not forget little kindnesses and do not remember small faults"
