Bright, quiet and airy, this house is newly renovated with modern upgrades to provide you a comfortable home-like experience. Conveniently located, it's minutes away from FWY5, 20 min from South Coast Plaza, Disneyland&California Adventure, and the beach. Private room, shared kitchen and bathroom. Walk to dining and shopping.

The space

This room feels very cozy and snuggly, with everything you need for rest as well as study/work, and ample closet space for storage. It faces the side yard of the house, so is very quiet. Premium high-speed wifi throughout the house.

Guest access

Community pool, tennis court, park (3 minutes walk)

Kitchen and dining room (including cabinet and fridge space, cookware, silverware, dishes and cups etc)

laundry in the garage

Interaction with guests

When I have the time and if the guests desire so. As a side note, I speak Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese and some Italian, in addition to English.

Other things to note

This is a one-level single family home (so you don't have to go up and down stairs all the time, and it is very quiet) with spacious front and side yards, as well as a big back yard with fruit trees, flowers and birds chirping in the morning. The house was renovated and freshly painted in March 2015, with new floorings, windows and doors, furnitures and appliances. I have two other listings in the same home, which you are welcome to check out. All 3 listings are private rooms, and the guest bathroom is shared among the guests in the 3 rooms.

I stayed at Ruiwen's for a week for work and it was prefect for my needs. Having a washer and dryer and paying half of what a hotel would have been was well worth the price. Very clean too! Thanks for having me!

It was pretty good location and a good environment to live, but the living resources that was a little bit short for us.

prior to my arrival, ruiwen sent me information regarding my check in. it was very concise and made check in effortless. the room was exactly as it was described and pictured in the listing. i had the unfortunate incident of unintentionally breaking the house rules on the evening of my first stay. regardless, the host gave me the privilege to explain what had happened. we came to a mutual understanding to cut my trip a day shorter than the original reservation. i bare no ill will towards the host and am thankful she was so empathetic about the situation. if given the opportunity, i would gladly stay at this listing again. i highly recommend booking with this host as she is prompt and informative

I speak Cantonese, Mandarin, English fluently, Japanese proficiently, and I know some Spanish and Italian.

I have travelled to China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, South and North Korea, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Australia, the U.K., Italy, Spain, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Turkey, Mexico, and gone on road trips to many national parks in the U.S.

When I go on trips, I like to visit museums, galleries, theaters to learn about the local culture, art and history. The street food tells me the other half of the story. Going to local salsa parties are always a fun way to meet the locals as well.
