Your day begins with a restful night's sleep in this urban retreat, where comfort and quiet in a home-like setting leave you ready to explore and enjoy!
Close to all that Southern California offers, but secluded enough for relaxation. Welcome!
This room is available in a clean, comfortable condominium within 8 miles/6K of Disneyland, 2 miles of Knott's Berry Farm, close to freeways, and shopping, and centrally located to numerous California tourist spots. Universal Studios, museums in downtown L.A., antique shops in Pasadena or Orange, the Los Angeles County Arboretum, The Huntington Library.
Shopping within 2 miles includes Walmart, Staples, CVS Drugs, Panera, Starbucks, Jack in the Box, Subway, as well as numerous Asian, Italian, Mexican, and other specialty restaurants. We are less than 3 miles from BIOLA University, 7 miles from Cal State Fullerton, 15 miles from Huntington Beach and other coastal access, and conveniently located near the MetroLink railway station. 24 Hour Fitness is an easy jog or walk 1-3/4 away.
Breakfast typically consists of coffee and pastries and the room is cozy, quiet, comfortably furnished and best for one adult. Television and free WiFi are included, there's a radio/alarm clock in the room plus a USB charging outlet.
Our entire home is non-smoking. Pets are not permitted, although there is a mellow, loving house cat on premises. Laundry facilities are available at no charge.
The weather almost always invites lingering on the rear balcony over coffee in the morning, and at night you'll rest comfortably knowing that your car is parked in a safe, well-lighted residential area. Your hosts are knowledgeable long-time residents of the area, and will gladly help with tips for entertainment, dining, and sightseeing.
Public transportation is available nearby, including bus lines and newly-built MetroLink train station, which conveniently connects you to downtown Los Angeles by rail.
You'll enjoy a clean, pleasant stay in a quiet home-away-from-home, experiencing local culture more warmly than you would in a corporate chain hotel. Welcome to Southern California! :0)
TV, wireless Internet, DVD player, shared bathroom/shower, balcony, street parking. PLEASE NOTE: Tuesdays are street sweeping days, and vehicles MUST be off the street between noon and 3 pm or they WILL BE TICKETED by the local police department.
Attentive but non-intrusive. Happy to point you to local places of interest, shopping, entertainment!
You are a guest, and are welcome to relax here during your stay. In return, we ask you to behave like a guest: No smoking, no drugs or illegal activities of any kind, quiet after 9:00 pm, don't allow the cat outdoors, and no visitors please.
Level headed, even-tempered, quiet, and occasionally amusing, my wife and I work hard to provide a tranquil, drama-free refuge for our guests. Our radio often plays jazz or talk shows, but so never so loud as to disturb your enjoyment of our home during your stay. We have a cat, but he's seldom seen and if he appears will probably take a liking to you -- as long as you're a non-smoker and don't bring any dogs with you! (Litter smells? Nope. My wife is fastidious about that, and our cat's horribly expensive but effective "Litter Robot" does a good job of helping her out).
Our living room is a social hub, and you're welcome to join the pleasant conversation there. Be aware that you may encounter card tricks or other magic! You'll probably find something to enjoy among our DVD or book collections, but if not, there's Internet access for you. Feel free to use our printer if you need to print out a page or two.
Depending on my work schedule, you might be welcome to sample treats from the kitchen -- I'm a 'foodie' and enjoy sharing. Yes, there might be home brewed beer or freshly-roasted coffee, or it could be tandoori chicken night. Whatever's cooking, if you're around, you're invited!
