About this listing

Truly a private oasis with a fenced in front yard and beautiful backyard set amidst single story homes on a quiet street not far (approx 2.5 miles) from the ocean. Lovely updated 3 bedroom home with unique furnishings that add a whimsical flair. Tastefully "appointed" private guest room with queen bed and ceiling fan and a private, detached bathroom.

Street parking right in front of the house; parking is never a problem.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing my home and surroundings!

The space

You'll love the deco. It's fun, a bit glamorous, yet has a touch of boheme and is very comfortable and inviting.

In addition to the indoor space, I have a beautiful hardscaped backyard with firepit, built in barbecue and seating area and a private fenced in front yard with high-top bistro table or a hammock to enjoy the fresh air.

You will have access to cable TV and WiFi. If you wish to watch movies in the privacy of your room, I have a TV/DVD player in your room that I am happy to set up.

There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby; even within walking distance for those that don't mind a 10-15 minute walk. Disneyland is a 25 minute drive and most area attractions are within 30 minutes. 10-15 minutes from world class shopping at Fashion Island or South Coast Plaza. A quick ride or walk to the beach and the airport is less than 10 minutes drive. I'm happy to pick you up if our schedules work out.

Public transportation is also nearby. Lyft or Uber is $5-$10 to most nearby locations. 10 minutes to John Wayne airport.

The neighborhood is quiet and safe and the home a peaceful refuge. I do have a beautiful and friendly little pup, 14 lbs and full of life, but he is independent and has his own doggy door.

Guest access

Guests have use of private bed/private detached bathroom, living room and the kitchen with microwave for light cooking. There is always space in the refrigerator and a shelf in the kitchen cabinet for your use. Coffee, tea and water is always available and I try to have fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal for the mornings.
I have a single mattress (not raised) for your room for guests with a third person or families with a child or the den with a twin bed is available for a third guest with an extra $20 charge per night in addition to the extra person charge.

Interaction with guests

As much or little as they like!

Other things to note

If there is a third person in your party, I have a twin mattress that can be placed in your room or a twin bed in the den (separate room) may be available at a rate of extra $20 per night. Please inquire, as this is only open to guests with a third party. Extra person charge applies for all guests including infants. No visiting guests and no additional overnight guests.
From time to time I have another guest in the twin room. Also, I travel from time to time either for work or fun. During those times I have a close friend host to assist my guests and watch my pup. My alternate host is very attune to Airbnb and my guests so it is never an issue, but if you have a concern about this possibility, please ask before you book! Thank you!

What a beautiful home and a wonderful, warm welcome from Tamara. She thought of all of the finishing touches to make my stay at her home both luxurious and comfortable. Centrally located with plenty of restaurants and shops in close proximity, and. a great location for tourists visiting Newport Beach. Thank you Tamara!

Tamara User ProfileTamara is a superhost.

I was born in San Francisco, grew up and schooled in Northern California then made my way south eventually landing in beautiful Orange County about 10 years ago. I work full time but I am always available if you need something and always have plenty of tips and ideas.

I have a passion for travel and began my airbnb experience as a guest. I worked in Switzerland to learn German and went to school in Guatemala to learn Spanish. I've traveled to over 45 countries and counting!

I'm proud to be verified as a Superhost and I look forward to welcoming you to my home and sharing this beautiful area with you! Whether you are here for business or pleasure or something in between, I try to get a sense for the space and communication level that best suits each of my guests.
