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 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.
Hardscaped backyard with firepit, built in barbecue and seating area. Private fenced in front yard with high-top bistro table or a hammock to enjoy the fresh air.
Guests have use of private bed/detached bathroom, living room and the kitchen which includes convection oven, microwave, coffee pot and all the pots and pans you might need! You will also have plenty of space in the refrigerator and a shelf in the kitchen cabinet for your use. Coffee, tea and bottled water are always available.
CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST is included; fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal.
Street parking is available right in front of the house; parking is never a problem. 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. 15 minutes from world class shopping at Fashion Island or South Coast Plaza. A quick ride to the beach or airport and I'm even happy to pick you up if our schedules work out.
Public transportation is also nearby. 10 minutes to John Wayne airport.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe and I am generally the only one in the house but for my beautiful little pup, 14 lbs and full of life, but he is independent and has his own doggy door.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing my home and surroundings!
Private bed and bathroom plus living room, kitchen and outdoor areas.
Interaction with Guests
As much or little as they like!
Public transportation is available and Uber is very popular here.
It's a very comfortable home in a great location near the beach, running trails and plenty of shops, restaurants and activities, so I understand that flexibility with check in and check out can be important. It helps if you can give me a general check in time, but, I am always happy to work with your schedule.
I'm not big on rules, but I do ask that you be respectful and pick up after yourself. I do have a small dog that you must be tolerant of.
Our stay at Tamara's was wonderful. She was very helpful with our check in and out times, which were very late in the evening, and very early in the morning. She puts a lot of work into making sure her guests are comfortable. The soaps in the bathroom and the chocolate on the pillows were also a nice touch. Overall a great stay!
Tamara has a beautiful home and is a wonderful host. I enjoy staying with her.
Thank you Tamara for being a superhost, we instantly felt welcomed upon meeting you at check-in and thank you for having cold beers and water waiting for us in the fridge (great touch!). The house is beautiful and really is just like rooms you'd see in interior design magazines. Lovely big bed with little snacks on the bedside; bathroom with the coolest brick floor designs; great kitchen; gorgeous outdoor (email hidden)etty much every room is awesome - it really did feel like a home away from home.
My husband and I had just spent three months visiting cities around the world and with LA being our last stop, we wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of cities and staying out in Orange County was just perfect. So close to beaches, relaxed communities, and with Tamara's excellent list of restaurants and things to do locally, we had a blast!
Tamara is a fabulous hostess! I got a little lost on the way in and she was on the phone helping me out all the way. Arrived to a beautiful and very clean and tidy home, with water, snacks, fruit, an incredibly comfortable bed (I slept so very well!), really nice outdoor areas and the best makeup mirror ever. Tamara made herself available for all questions and had an excellent list of local restaurants, etc. Location is great. Close to airport, shopping, everything. And Beau, the little dog, is so cute and polite. He was quite happy to take me for a tour around the neighborhood (we went on a couple walks). Great neighborhood. I felt very safe and welcome. Would definitely go back!
Tamara is a lovely sweetheart who went way out of her way to make me comfortable with her hospitality. She has a beautiful home, close to everything and a backup plan just in case we encounter a glitch (which we didn't). Everything was beautifully decorated, easy to access and had her gorgeous niece and sweet little puppy to keep me company. All in all, her home is quiet, clean, restful and in a great neighborhood. Thank you Tamara for sharing your beautiful home and being one of the awesome guardian angles to go above and beyond to help me on my mission. The kindest regards to you and Melinda for keeping me in the comfort zone.
Tamara was a fantastic friendly host and a great concierge also, quick to provide recommendations, directions, etc. Private spa-like room was exceptionally clean and comfy with a charming private bathroom across the hall. The house was beautifully decorated (exactly how I would dream of) with amazing zen space garden and outdoor patio. Wish we would have gotten to stargaze over the fire pit, so we'll be back! Everything was like spa bed & breakfast beach house experience with Peace & Quiet! Highly recommend, Ro & Danny
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 am really close by so 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 40 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.
