Interaction with Guests
Rachel does most of the hosting as Evan is more private. Rachel is always happy to provide guests with directions and recommendations on where to go. She's happy to help with whatever is necessary, but is also fine with guests who prefer to keep to themselves.

Our neighborhood has ample street parking. We do not allow pets or smoking on premises.
We recommend renting a car in Orange County as our public transit system is not great.
No Smoking. No Drugs. No Pets. No outside guests please.
We cannot accommodate more than 2 guests.
We do not "make up" the room and we generally do not provide meals, however, we've been known to invite guests for breakfast or dinner when it makes sense to do so.
We generally get up around 6am and go to bed around 10pm. Please be considerate by not being too noisy outside of these hours and we'll do the same.
Don't hesitate to ask for help, information or recommendations of what to do in the area.
Please help yourself to fresh and organic coffee and tea in our kitchen as well as filtered water. We have reusable bottles that you're welcome to use while you're here.
Thanks to both of my hosts (and little Millie :) for your warm welcome. The room was perfect and very well located. Thanks again!
Rachel and Evan were very accommodating and flexible. We asked to book the space late afternoon on a Sunday and arrived late that night. Rachel was very excited to have us and greeted us at the door when we arrived. The space clean and sufficient. Parking was very easy. This was a great first experience for us with Air bnb!
Rachael and Evan (and little Miss Mille!) are the perfect hosts -- from the moment I arrived until I left they were gracious, warm and welcoming. I stayed with them for two weeks while attending a training at a near by hotel and I was so glad to have a homey place to stay with engaging people during that time. The apartment is very conveniently located for access to many major streets and highways and the parking was easy and ample. Thanks so much for everything and I will certainly be looking you up for additional stay-overs should I find myself in your area again!
Rachel and Evan are spectacular hosts! Their apartment is warm and welcoming, and the room for their guests is comfortable and private. Rachel anticipates her guests' needs and has provided everything ahead of time. They are both very familiar with the area and are happy to make recommendations of all the hot spots. I give the apartment and the hosts 5/5 stars for location, comfort, cleanliness, professionalism, and kindness. I left after three weeks with two new friends, and would certainly recommend their place to anyone I know.
Excellence room, Rachel is very friendly. We love the dog. This is better than staying at hotel and the price is very affordable. Will recommend and definitely will try to book this room again when I need to go back to Irvine. Thank you Rachel,
great stay! loved your place. thanks for putting up with my nighttime cough. :)
Rachel and Evan (and Millie :) ) were very welcoming and friendly! Their home is a short drive from the airport and a great central location for all of the things we had planned for our stay in OC. The room was as described and the snacks and coffee they had laid out for us were an added bonus! We enjoyed getting to know Rachel, and she had some great suggestions of things to do in the area. Great hosts, would absolutely recommend staying with them!
I'm a midwestern girl that moved to Southern California about 6 years ago. I love the outdoors, love to exercise, and I'm very into health and wellness. Staying in our home, you can be sure that all our food will be organic, all our cleaning products will be non-toxic, and we'll be happy to help you make the most out of your Socal adventure!
