Our large guest room with two antique dressers, a computer with printer, and TV with cable channels, will put you conveniently in the center of shopping and restaurants (all within walking distance), two blocks to the beach, and a supermarket nearby.

Utrymmet

Stay in my beautiful apartment just 2 blocks from the beach in a VERY safe neighborhood. MEMBERS OF ALL FAITHS WELCOME--INCLUDING MEMBERS OF THE MUSLIM FAITH!!

-The Room-
-You are renting a room in a two bedroom, 1.5 bath house. The room is about 16'x18', and has two windows and a lot of light! I am renting out this room because my daughter works for Airbnb and she recommended it. I tried it a few times and I met some interesting people and liked it.

-The Neighborhood-
- Walking distance from 2nd Street (Belmont/Long Beach) restaurants and shops as well as 3 minute walk to beach and Belmont Pier.
- 20 minutes from Long Beach Airport via public transportation.
- This place is near Disneyland and Knot''s Berry Farm, close to Orange County beaches (Huntington Beach, Newport Beach).
- Close to bike path to take you either north (to downtown Long Beach and Queen Mary) or south (to Orange County).
- Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance including a brand-new upscale mini-supermarket 5 minutes walking distance.
- Belmont Pier is 2 blocks with new ferry service stop that takes you downtown or to the Queen Mary.

-Pets-
I have a cat. If you don't like cats this place won't work for you. I work long-hours sometimes, and if I'm not around and he asks for something--you have to take care of him. If you don't want this--better to find a cat-less place.

About me
I know all about Los Angeles and can provide guidance for places to see, restaurants, and hikes or bike routes in the area.

Amenities
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.

There is high-speed internet service in 3 rooms in the apartment as well as a wireless network. Bring your computer or use one of mine!

So, to sum up
Positives--Very Safe Neighborhood, Close to Restaurants and Shops, Close to Beach and Bike Path, There is a computer in your room and high speed internet, great food if you want it, expert on LA if you need it. Close to the beaches of Orange County. Close to Irvine if you are here on Business. Two cats that may try to get your attention.

Negatives--Public transportation in LA sucks. It will take you some time to get to Hollywood, or Universal Studios. The beach we are closest to is not the best in the area. However there is a very nice sunbathing beach 1 mile away where you can also rent a kayak. Orange County beaches are a few minutes(30) away by bus. Nearby beach is not bad on a sunny day--there is a nice pier--but it's not Malibu.

Gästers åtkomst

Guests may use my kitchen/refrigerator/stove/utensils as long as everything is kept clean.

Umgänge med gäster

I will give you as much information and assistance as you need.

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).

We´ve been there for 5 days. Doug is a really nice guy, can tell you a lot of nice and interesting things and places. The area is really perfect, the beach is really close, a very good market is really close too and it´s a very safe and cool neighborhood. The room was clean, and everything you need is there. I definitely would book again!

Thank you Kevin, for the review. Hopefully it will help to offset the review left with malicious intent apparently based on a conversation I had with Sabino (the guest who left the malicious review) that was about a relatively minor issue involving an air conditioner and unrelated to the condition of my property. I am in the process of attempting to have that review removed although I am not sure that I will be able to. In any case your review based on a stay 1 day after the review in question will help and IT IS APPRECIATED, Danke.

douglas was very friendly and helpful and is very knowledgeable about the area. unfortunately, however, the photos of the house do not reflect the reality. the room is dark, the windows can not be opened and the house is very dirty and has a bad smell! I hope douglas will improve the hygiene of the house for the next guests!

I frankly have no response to this rotten review. I have an average of 4.7 stars including MANY 5 star reveiws for cleanliness. The carpet is literally brand new. AND CLEAN. I continually improve everything. In the bathroom, the sink and vanity have been replaced just prior to Sabino's stay. Nearly everyone remarks how clean the place is. No bugs. No odor. New Carpet. Newly refurbished sinks and vanities. Tub is in the process of being refinished. I find this to be an insulting and pathetic review. Read other reviews please. You will find them to be exceptional.

Douglas had amazing communication, and was very flexible when my flight got cancelled and I had to arrive the next day. He has a great knowledge of the area, and interacts as much or as little as you want him to. The room was clean, and the bed was comfy. And it really is such a short walk to the beach! Highly recommend! Thanks Douglas!

Douglas的房子地理位置非常优越,它离海岸线只有步行不到十分钟的路程。白天可以在海里玩耍,打打沙滩排球。傍晚,可以一边沿着海岸线骑自行车或者散步,一边欣赏晚霞与日落。同时,超市VON离Douglas的房子也很近,购物非常方便。 Douglas是一位热情友好的男主人。他不仅能提供当地及周边旅游及购物的信息,同时, 还能告诉我在哪能买到高性价比的东西。比如我想买苹果电脑及IPad, 他就告诉我哪里能买到比专卖店便宜的,结果我买的比专卖店便宜了15%。当我和他进行英文交流时,他也会不厌其烦的纠正我的发音,语法及口误,比在国内上口语班效果好很多,还省去了昂贵的学习费用。 Douglas 同时是一位知识渊博,善于学习,和任何年龄层的人都能成为朋友的人。他能说俄语,西班牙语,墨西哥语。有时我早晨起床时,还听见他在认真的进行发音练习。我从未感觉他是一个六旬老人,而是一个精力充沛, 容易相处,喜欢和年轻人交朋友的房东。
