Please turn off the lights and bathroom fan, coffee-maker and close and lock the windows and the door when you leave the house. Thanks.
Everything was just perfect, it cannot be better! The house is big and well located with car park for free. It was very clean and Luyuan is very nice. Also, the breakfast was perfect.
we stay one night in luyuan's house. we had a nice chat right after the arrival as she was inside the house.
the room is great and we were offered some snack in the room. also we went to the breakfast cafe recommended by luyuan adn it was great.
overall, it was a good stay and we were fully recharged.
Note: I did not stay in this room due to a scheduling conflict on my part but Luyuan graciously provided me another room that did fit my itinerary. The following review refers to a Pretty Room, but the review could apply to any room Luyuan provides.
Luyuan is an excellent host and her accommodations are top-notch. I stayed with her my first year using Airbnb and I was so pleased that I didn't even consider looking for other places to stay when planning my 2015 trip to Big Sur. When I was booking my trip this year, the room I hoped to get wasn't available for the full duration of my three night stay. I expressed to Luyuan how much I enjoyed my stay with her the previous year and she kindly went out of her way to make Pretty Room C available. The bed was VERY comfortable, the storage space was plentiful and Luyuan's hospitality was wonderful. After several strenuous day hikes in Big Sur and the Pinnacles, I was happy knowing I had a good nights rest ahead of me care of Luyuan. The location is perfect if you plan on visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Big Sur or any of the many other attractions in the area. In addition, Luyuan gives you privacy and prepares a delicious breakfast. I truly recommend staying with her for a great Airbnb experience.

About the Host, Luyuan
I am a language professor at the prestigious Institute, enjoy cooking, running, music, movie, reading and community life. After finishing the teaching job, I am dedicated to hosting Airbnb guests.
Hosting the delightful people from all over the world has enriched my life. A few years ago I traveled to one of the southern cities in America on TDY and visited a large beautiful Botanical Garden in Alabama. An American couple worked hard, day and night, raising and maintaining the variety of beautiful plants and gorgeous flowers in the garden presenting them for the public and tourists to enjoy the beauty of these plants and flowers. There was an eye-catching sign carved with the famous saying of Benjamin Franklin:" Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise". Inspired by the spirit of the diligent and down-to-earth American couple, I started hosting the Airbnb guests, presenting the clean, warm and comfortable rooms to the guests. In addition to doing a full-time teaching job, I did my best making every guest feel at home and satisfied by working long hours . Communicating and interacting with the guests from different countries has become a fun part of my life. Some French guests talked about their popular saying in France: "The Day belongs to those who wake up early". Other guests shared the stories of their traveling experiences, their home countries, cultures and their history. Some German guests shared their cuisine. Those touching comments, sincere and glowing reviews warmed my heart every day. These positive and high-quality people's words counteracted my daily fatigue and stress. It was these nice and lovely people that made me feel so worthwhile working hard for them.
During my TDY in the past years, I stayed in one of the Marriott Hotels in Alabama. I was deeply impressed by the "Southern Hospitality". From the General Manager to the Staff of the Cafeteria, everyone was so nice, warm-hearted and hospitable. I traveled so far away from California to Alabama and received such a warm and unforgettable welcome and hospitality in Alabama. The rosy memories were so long-lasting and vivid that I could remember them for a long time. Back from the south of America I passed the southern hospitality to everyone I know and to all the guests who stayed in my homes. Please rest assured that everything will taken good care of from room temperature to the free parking. I try my best to be more flexible and adaptable to any changing situation.
As for the listings I can give you some heads-up. "Beautiful Entire House is composed of Room #1 and Room#2 . The shower-head in this house is adjustable. You can adjust it to any water pressure you want. The access to the backyard is through the kitchen door. Parking is always available in front of this house.
"Cute Entire House" consists of Pretty Room A, Room B and Room C. You can park your car on the street in front of the house. If the parking space is taken by others, you can pull your car into the front yard. I have opened the front yard to secure your parking.
Because of the extremely busy schedule, I do not have enough time to cook breakfast for every guest. But I prepared some frying pans, pots and cooking utensils in the kitchen so that you can make your own favorite food. Sometimes when the business was slow I had some extra time and cook some authentic Chinese food to offer it to the guests as a gift. It all depends on the availability of my time. That's why some guests had the food, some did not. Thanks for your understanding.
I also provided a list of the local restaurants for breakfast and dinner on the sign holder in each room.
Note: Please inquire the availability first before making the reservation.
