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.

The Space

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.

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.

We have wireless internet. We have an average of 19 ping 58.49 download speed and 11.14 upload speed. 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 have an average of 19 ping 58.49 download speed and 11.14 upload speed. We have our own modem and router as Comcast/Xfinity just wasn't doing the job. We know how important internet access is to our guests. We just recently cancelled out 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.

Guest Access

The kitchen and all that it offers. The laundry room. The dinning room area. Of course the guest bathroom.

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

We have a bus stop right outside our community that takes you to the lightrail or the train station. Wherever you need to go.

Other Things to Note

We may from time to time have a dog visiting with us as we have a service through (website hidden) for temporarily housing a dog while their owners are away. If you are allergic, please let us know and we will make certain that the home is thoroughly cleaned before you arrive and that no dogs will be on the premises during your stay with us.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My gf and I stayed for about a week and a half at Maria's. The place is nice and we were mostly in and out because of work and errands. The room in particular is clean and has a comfortable bed, which fairs better than most of other places its price range. Please bear in mind that there is only one bathroom and that it is shared so allow yourself some flexibility in that department when staying here. Also noise travels rather easily, so if you're a loud person and wish to stay be sure to make an extra effort to muffle yourself--especially at night.

    Response from Maria:

    Adam and Ada were great. I just want to clarify something. There are two bathrooms in the house. The hallway bathroom is used by the guests using the two rooms that are listed on Airbnb. Usually not an issue. Putting a towel under the door helps with noise but the walls aren't well insulated, so listening to music or the tv loudly is not encouraged as it easily disturbs other guests. Same as being loud in the room. You need to be aware what time it is and make certain that you aren't disturbing anyone.

  • Maria's bedroom was nice. Bathroom was super clean and easy to access. Only thing for me is that her family was talking late until 12 - 1 AM .. and I could not sleep.

    Another disclosure she should put is that this shared bedroom is in a mobile home.

    Response from Maria:

    The pictures show that it is a mobilehome, if you look at all of them. Also, if we were keeping you up, you should have said something. A friend of ours was visiting and I wasn't aware that we were keeping you up. You communicate your needs and it is taken care of. I'm glad you liked the bedroom and how clean the bathroom is.

  • Maria was an excellent host, and made me feel very comfortable in her home. It was quiet, clean, and inviting, but I would advise you to bring earplugs, as she states, due to noise from the neighborhood, and other guests in the house. Overall, it was very positive. Thanks!

  • Maria and her family are really nice and easy going. A lot of the places in the house are labeled with short instructions so even if they are not at home, I can always find the things/places I need. The room and the bathroom are both very clean and well maintained.

  • A lovely place to stay! Maria was a great and super kind host, we enjoyed everything a lot!
    Thank you for having us stay at your nice home!

  • My son and I have enjoyed a safe and comfortable stay with Maria and her daughter. Since we arrived, they made us feel welcome and right at home. We were grateful to see the historical artifacts that Maria's daughter has collected over the years!

    The room and bathroom are clean and comfortable. We shared the bathroom with their other guest, but we have different schedules so there was no issue at all.

    On my son's birthday we were so excited to see that they bought a huge chocolate cake. It was such a kind gesture and made us very happy.

    We're grateful for the opportunity to have stayed with Maria and her family. I recommend staying with them too!

  • Maria and Vivian were wonderful. Very warm hosts but non-intrusive. Highly recommend them to anyone considering staying at their place.

  • Maria was a wonderful host. The room is clean and comfortable. My husband and I had no problems during our 3 day stay with Maria. It's a very cute mobile home - quiet and safe. I would recommend Maria's AirBnb to all!

  • Absolutely perfect host. Makes your trip very easy, especially with labels in fridge for which drawers are for guests, labels in kitchen for trash/etc, leaving WiFi password out in room. Parking was <1 minute walk away and was not full anytime I was there, so no issues at all. Would happily stay again.

  • I stayed at Maria's place for two nights. Her place is nice and quiet. The bedroom was small but nicely furnished and clean. She is a nice person who let us stay beyond the check out time.

    Thanks for hosting.
