- Parking: In Long Beach parking can be a challenging. Here are couple tips for you: if you can, come back before 4:30 pm and you can easily find a parking spot. We have two cars and two parking spots, but we don't use the second car every day, so we can help you out as much as possible by saving you a spot on the street. Please, make sure to talk about it and arrange that with us, otherwise, you will be on your own. Thursdays are street cleaning day on our side of the street and Mondays across the street.Please move your car in the AM to avoid a ticket.

- Be discreet and not noisy - We live in a quite place, if you want to party, there are plenty of places around us but when close to our house we need you to be discreet. We love Airbnb and the sharing culture and the main thing that kills it is giving people around us reason to complain.

- Check-in is at 3 pm and check-out at 11 am - We can be flexible with the check in and check out, especially if we do not have another guest coming in the same day, but it is important to know your plans ahead, so we can arrange your stay in the most comfortable way. Otherwise, we will expect to say “Hi" to you anytime after 3 pm and “good-bye" by 11 am.

- Keep the house clean - Wash your dishes and anything you use in the kitchen.We would really appreciate if you keep the place tidy;

- Grabbing fruits and drinking coffee - We work with organic and local food and would love to share it with you. We have our fruits available, but the cost of it has a significant impact on our hosting cost. We kindly ask for a $1 donation for each fruit or coffee you have.

- Respect our neighbors - we live in a complex of apartments though it feels like a house. We have a great mutual respect between our neighbors and do all to keep it.

Some weird rules that we create after strange things happened:
- Always close the bathroom door while you are using;
- It would be nice if you can keep your cloth on;
- If you need to throw up, please do it in the toilet and not in the sink;
- Please, no deep-frying. The apartment smells and everything is grease after deep-frying;

Awesome place, comfy bed & Nice neighbourhood. Lica & Matheus were okay with letting me check in very late and keep their home very accommodating!

I really enjoyed staying with Lica & Matheus. They are absolutely lovely people and their flat is very nice. The room is huge and has a big closet. It is always clean and tidy and they help you with any question that you have. They know everything there is to know about long beach, the neighbourhood they live in is very trendy and walking distance to great bars and restaurants. But the street they live in is very quiet. I will come back next year and definitely recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at Lica & Matheus' house for 4 nights. When we arrived in Long Beach they left us very accurate info how to find the house and get the keys. We didn't see them much but generally they are a nice couple and one evening we chatted about the city and they actually gave us some tips about some good restaurants and places to see. It was perfect for us because we had our privacy and the area was really quiet.Thank you guys. Hope to see you soon again.

Lica and Matheus were perfect hosts. Kept me informed right the way through the planning of my trip from the UK to Long Beach. They have a lovely home and a comfortable peaceful room where I could work and rest. I'd definitely stay again next time I'm in the LA area

We moved from Brazil to CA in 2013 to study at UCLA and now we live in Long Beach. We work in a company that delivers local and organic food, I'm the buyer, and he's the art director.

We love music, learning different cultures and exploring what Long Beach has to offer. We believe this is the nicest city in the world; people are awesome. The sea shore is amazing to hang out, exercise or just disconnect a little. The city is alive with a great calendar of events and awesome bars (all close to our home).

We are happy that we found our community and hope that you enjoy as much as we do.
