Live like a local in this fully furnished home. The overall space is not a stuffy hotel room but rather, a bit eclectic and artsy. I have a lot of unique art on the walls and the kitchen is Mexican theme. The bedroom with the twin bed has two french doors that open to the spacious backyard. I am a photographer and you will see some of my photographs on the walls. I will be living in a van, but will have contact information for friends nearby if you need help with anything. I will respond to any request right away.

Feel free to contact me if you can think of something I missed...

I welcome pets! Please let me know if you plan to bring your furry 4 legged family member with you.

The home may not be suitable for people who have a hard time moving around since the bathroom has a claw foot tub/shower combo and you have to be able to step up and the step down is even further so it may be difficult for someone who has a hard time walking. Also, there are two steps to get into the house and into the backyard. I wanted you to be aware of that.

I don't mind you smoking outside but please do not smoke in the house.

This is a quiet family neighborhood so please no events or parties.

Once booked, I will email check in instructions a week prior to your arrival date. Thank you!

My husband and really enjoyed our stay at Alison home. Walking distance to the beach, great restaurants close by. There is a Ralph's groceries store two an half blocks away. The neighborhood is nice and clean. We really enjoyed relaxing in the backyard, the Bar B Q came in handy too. We'll be back!

We finally found our home away from home in LB! We travel a few times a year there and tried a few other homes. Location/house/off-street parking/private backyard are perfect to spend time in southern CA. What is even more important - host's attention, communication and "always being there" for us. Thank you, Alison!

My husband, myself and our 2.5 year-old-son loved staying at Alison's place for the last week. The location is great...a quick walk to restaurants, shops, the beach, and public transportation. The house itself is comfortable, clean, and full of character. The backyard with firepit & grill is awesome! The yard is fenced in so it's really nice if you have small kids. We spent a lot of time in the (URL HIDDEN) son playing, and my husband and I kicking back in the sunshine with drinks. :) I should also mention that Alison was very communicative before and during our visit. She checked in on us a couple times to make sure we had everything we needed. Check-in and check-out was easy. I definitely recommend Alison's place, and hope to stay there again soon.

We stayed at Alison's home for 4 months while on a work assignment in Long Beach. I honestly can't say enough great things about our stay. Alison was so accommodating and easy to work with. Her place is perfectly located and within walking distance to bars and amazing restaurants! We felt heart sick when it was our time to leave. Thanks for an amazing experience!

Hi there!

Thank you for your interest in my property! I consider this house to be my little hideaway. I love nature and traveling and because of this, I'm not home! I am living in a van with my dog, Max and we are traveling the United States documenting the people and places we come across.

It's wonderful that you are out exploring other areas as I am. This is my sixth year living on the road and the people who stay at my home really enjoy it and many come back every year to stay.

If you would like to know more about me, feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

I hope to host you soon!

Best,
Alison
