About this listing
We live in a safe community close to public transportation and major freeways, but not so close that you can actually hear them. We welcome you into our home and try our best to provide a nice warm family setting. We provide a home away from home.
I have a really nice room in a quiet neighborhood that is 10 mins. away from the major freeways. Easy access to public transit, light rail and the train/bus station. It's in a nice Mobilehome Park. The home is a manufactured home. Not a trailer or one of the older mobilehomes with paneling and such.
The room is small, but for most guests that only book the room for sleeping, the room is fine. I clean on a regular basis and do the best I can to maintain things. I can't help our location. Have been getting low ratings for location, but our location is fine. You may not have a fine view out of your window, but you have a comfortable stay.
We have a hallway bathroom across the way from our two Airbnb rooms. It's a shared bath, but so far no one has had any issues, as everyone's schedule is so varied.
Rating me on location....well it's something I can't help. It is accurate. You do have easy access. I can't help where my home is. Please keep in mind when rating me on my location the ease of access to freeways, public transit and safe community.
We have wireless internet. We bought our own modem and router since Comcast/xfinity just wasn't cutting it in terms of their modem. We know how important internet access is to our guests. If your laptop doesn't have a wireless card, we can provide you with an Ethernet cable for a wired connection. We provide high speed internet. Please check our pictures to see the speed we have. We know how important internet access is to our guests. We just recently cancelled our cable service. Most people don't watch TV while they stay with us. So, we kept the internet and got rid of the cable.
You can do your laundry here and if you would like to cook something, you are welcome to make use of the kitchen. If you need room in the fridge, I will gladly accommodate you as well as provide you with cabinet space for what you need.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
The home is air conditioned, so nice and comfortable during California's hot Summer weather.
Due to the increase in the use of utilities, I've had to increase my room rate a little bit. Hopefully this is still affordable for everyone considering all that we offer our guests.
The kitchen and all that it offers. The laundry room. The dinning room area. Of course the guest bathroom. Please be mindful that we are going through an extreme drought in our area when showering or using the bathroom sink. Also if cooking or washing dishes in the kitchen, be mindful of just letting the water run. During the drought we are reserving watering all outside plants to once a week to help conserve water.
Interaction with guests
We follow our guests lead when it comes to socializing. Some guests like to get to know us and sit down and have a meal. Some guest have a hectic schedule and come and go like if at a hotel, which in essence that is what we provide a home/hotel service. So, leave the interacting up to our guests, as this is their trip, their stay. I have asthma so I may not always be up to hanging out with guests. My daughter is a busy entertainment tech and my boyfriend keeps to himself quite a bit.
Our community is a safe environment and at night it is super quiet. You feel quite removed from the city even though you're not. There are rules for inside the community. We must accompany our guests to the pool, clubhouse, any community used places, so not always do able. You can park in our driveway during your stay. The only inconvenience is we do the car shuffle so that the person that leaves first in the morning, has their car at the end of the driveway. Keys are kept in a dish, on the kitchen table so, no one is ever stuck and not be able to leave. If keys aren't left in the dish, we encourage our guests to knock on the door of the other guest or on our door. Our car has a manual transmission, so not everyone knows how to drive one. So my boyfriend always has the keys and moves the car when needed. Usually everyone is quite cooperative and there are no hassles. Just takes getting used to if you have never done it before. There is room for only three cars. So, when you book, there is only room for one car per room.
We have a bus stop right outside our community that takes you to the lightrail or the train station. Wherever you need to go. Easy access to the highways, you can easily drive from our area to where ever you need to get to.
Other things to note
Please remember that you are in my home and respect it as such. Leaving messes for me to clean up on a daily basis is not cool. Hotel service yes, but I am not the cleaning service hotels have. The bathroom is the main room I would like to see guests clean up after themselves. When both rooms are booked, it is only courteous to the other guests that will be using the bathroom as well. Night temperature for the heater is kept at 62 as the heater heats up the house to 67 before turning off. House is comfortable during the day, so no need to adjust the heat. If you have a tendency to be on the cold side, please let us know. During the summer thermostat is kept at 78 for AC.
No drunk and disorderly conduct please. You may drink but not get drunk. I don't care how well behaved you are when you are drunk. We take no chances. No drug usage in the house. Please be discreet and mindful during bedroom activity.;) If you smoke please do so outside. Don't leave the front or back door open wide while smoking or stepping outside. Please always remember to take your housekey when leaving to go somewhere as we may not always be able to let you back in the house because we may not be here. Always remember to lock the front/back door when leaving and when returning to the house. An unlocked door is a safety concern. Also, please close your bedroom window when leaving the house. If you have a sensitivity to noise or particular hours that you keep, please communicate that to us. Advisable to bring earplugs, because although we aren't living in a noisy area, you will be in a home with other people that keep different hours and it may not be the silence you are seeking. It is however not a noisy home. If you use bottled water while you are here and you are staying long term with us, please buy your own waterflats. We only provide water when you first arrive. Also if you use our electric kettle on a daily basis, you can only use bottled water as our tap water is really hard water. A lot of mineral deposits build up on the kettle. Please get your own water flats for that. We try to keep costs down so that we can keep our prices low. Thanks. If you are long term guest, please buy detergent for when you do your laundry. Much appreciated.
I am in a committed relationship with my live in boyfriend of a few years now. I am a Mom to a wonderful daughter. I used to be a Nanny, but I am now a full time Airbnb host and a part time Instacart personal grocery shopper. Both me and my boyfriend do that. We love meeting people from all over the world and making new friends. My daughter does work as a cinematographer. It's her passion. Our rooms are very comfortable and we have easy access to all norms of public transportation. Easy access to the freeways as well and only 10 minutes from downtown. There is nothing really special about our location, other than it's a quiet and safe community. What's great about it is the easy access to stuff. If you are looking for an affordable place to stay, please stay with us. We don't discriminate. All people from all walks of life are welcome.
