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

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. Use of color laser printer for free (reasonable use). Use of wireless network or one of 3 hardwired computers for free including access to a large collection of movies. If I am gone for the night you may have to take care of the cat.
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.
