I have a large girl cat named Linda. If you don't like cats this place won't work for you. If I'm not around and she asks for something--you have to take care of her. If you don't want this--better to find a cat-less place.
I know all about Los Angeles and can provide guidance for places to see, restaurants, and hikes or bike routes in the area.
Near all transportation routes including red line to downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood. Single short bus ride from Long Beach airport. Catch right at terminal. Drops you off 1 block from my place. High-end supermarket 2 blocks away. Many restaurants within 2 or 3 blocks. Bike/walking path along beach nearby.
So, to sum up
Positives--Very Safe Neighborhood, Close to Restaurants and Shops, Close to Beach and Bike Path, Close to the beaches of Orange County. Close to Irvine.
Negatives--Public transportation in LA sucks. It will take you some time to get to Hollywood, or Universal Studios.
Guests may use my kitchen/refrigerator/stove/utensils as long as everything is kept clean.
Annat att notera
Public transportation in LA is terrible! If you want to mostly hang out in Santa Monica, Venice, or Hollywood/West Hollywood--better to stay up there (although WE are much closer to DISNEYLAND).
No smoking. No marijuana usage (even if you have a "medical marijuana" card). Quiet time after 10 PM. If I am gone for the night you may have to take care of the cat.
I will give you as much information and assistance as you need. You have to be very careful to not let the cat out late at night. If she escapes you have to go get her and bring her back in (Between 10PM to 6AM). I let her come and go outside during the day but at night we have COYOTES who go around and eat cats and dogs.
I speak fluent Spanish as well as reasonable Russian. I have two cats, Linda and Nico.
My passions are good food, learning, and the outdoors. I recently moved back into the financial services arena after teaching high school mathematics for ten years.
