Sleep in a clean, comfy twin bed* in my spacious living room. Ideal for a solo traveler who wants a safe, quiet and inexpensive place to stay.
The bed is not a fold-out or couch, so you can sleep as late as you like.
There is a market across the street as well as several inexpensive places to eat nearby. Please no cooking, but you can store food items in fridge and use the microwave.
The living room is yours to use as you please; however I do pass through it to get to my bedroom/office, so you will have to be comfortable with not having total privacy. The bathroom has a locking door and will be shared with only one other person (me).
*Please note that the bed is 75" long (1.9 meters), so if you are a tall person it might not be comfortable for you. It's not an air mattress.
No cooking please, but feel free to make tea, coffee or heat something in the microwave. You may store food items in the fridge.
Please wash any dishes you use and put them away.
Do a load of laundry (no charge); the machines are in the garage. Please use the "guest soap" or purchase your own.
I enjoy my privacy but also don't mind some conversation. Please feel free to text or call if you have any questions.
You will have your own key so you can come and go as you please.
I try to keep the house scent-free, so I'd appreciate it if you didn't apply cologne or perfume in the house.
No TVs here, but there is super fast wifi for your use.
Bring a sleep mask; there aren't any curtains in the living room so you'll most likely wake up with the bright, southern California sunrise.
Be prepared for an ant or three, and maybe a spider; they are harmless. Insecticides are useless except for poisoning us. Please take food scraps outside asap. Thanks!
No visitors. Only registered guests should enter my home.
I try to keep the house scent free, so no perfumes or colognes would be greatly appreciated.
No cooking but feel free to make tea, coffee or heat something in the microwave. You're welcome to store food items in fridge.
Please enjoy your meals and snacks at the table or outside on the deck rather than in bed.
Please don't use the tub for now; California is in the midst of a drought.
It's ant season, so put rubbish, especially with food residue, outside in the bins right away.
I was born and raised in Long Beach, California. I work as a substitute teacher for Los Angeles Unified School District. I work mostly with special needs kids with moderate to severe disabilities. During the summer I roam around, spending some time in the desert and also in northern California. I'm a foodie and a wine drinker. I also spend a lot of time crocheting, watercoloring and sewing.
