Our home

My home is a classic California bungalow, built in the 1950's and lovingly remodeled with great attention to detail. Both bedrooms have queen size matresses, and there is a bonus family room/office/loft space which has a double bed but lots of available floor space for blow up matresses if necessary. The back yard is huge, with raised deck,covered seating for 6-8, fountain, and barbecue- great for dining "al fresco" in our perfect southern california climate. I also have a large trampolene out back for the kids.

Who we are

  1. I am a single mother of a 16 year old girl, and work full time as a Registered Nurse in Labor and Delivery. We both have traveled extensively and enjoy soaking up the true flavor of the places we visit. We have never done a house echange before, but are excited by the prospect as it may open up many doors for more extensive travel. Unfortunately, because my daughter is school age, I am forced to take vacations around a traditional school calendar, and there is very little room for flexibilty. I am a very clean and respectful person, and would treat anyone's home with great care as I would expect that they do with mine. We have a small dog who is easy to care for, but would arrange for him to be cared away from the home if any interested parties were unable to commit to feeding him and caring for him.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The city of Long Beach has alot to offer in and of itself despite being perfectly situated for easy access to all Southern California destinations. My house is a five minute drive to the beaches, and approx 3 miles from Pacific Coast Highway- your link to all beach cities (Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Sunset Beach, Newport/Balboa, Laguna Beach). Long Beach is quite large and has a bustling downtown/warf scene with an excellent Aquarium (Aquarium of the Pacific), and first class restaurants. Belmont Shore is less than 10 minutes drive and offers great shopping and dining. Disneyland and California Adventure are about a 35 minute drive. Los Angeles is about a 40 minute drive. San Diego is about 1 1/2 hours away. We have a small local airport 5 minutes away where you can whisk off to Las Vegas or San Francisco for the weekend at extremely competitive prices (see Ferry's to the island of Catalina are located in Long Beach Harbor, and within 1 hour you can be exploring this famous island or diving off it's beautiful reefs. There are 2 markets and a Target store within 3 blocks of the house for easy grocery and sundries shopping. If it's a real Southern California experience you're looking for than this location is excellent.
