When we arrived at Wendell's home we were greeted and given all of the necessary information to make our stay enjoyable. The property was just as beautiful as the photographs and Wendell was more then accommodating with the random questions we asked. The beach was in walking distance and easy to locate! The bed and furnishings were amazingly comfortable, I woke up feeling refreshed like I had slept on a cloud. I have no complaints, I truly enjoyed my stay and if I find myself in Long Beach in the future, Wendell's will be at the top of the list for places to stay.
We spent a lovely time at Wendell's place. He was such a nice host, he provided us with all we needed and much more (ie. two beach towels, a beautiful bottle of wine, nice snacks, freshly brewed coffee and so on). Every morning he would set the table for breakfast so when we woke up it was all ready for us - we really appreciated the fruit and yogurt, after two weeks on the road it was nice to begin the day with some "clean food".
The room is bigger than it appears in pictures, the bathroom is large and has a big shower, all is clean and tidy.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe, you can walk to the beach, which is nice even of you are traveling with a car.
My stay at Wendell's place was great. He is a kind and considerate host. He met me on time and offers a private space with many amenities. The bed was very comfortable and the private entry made it easy to come and go. I was treated to a nice breakfast each morning and enjoyed our conversations over coffee. I would definitely stay again. Thanks for the great hospitality Wendell!
I stayed at Wendell's place for 3 nights while attending a conference in Long Beach. The location was excellent as it was walking distance to the conference location and restaurants. The reserved underground parking space was also perfect. Wendell had yogurt parfaits and tea ready for me for breakfast every day which was nice. He also had water bottles and amenities like soap/shampoo/conditioner ready for me to use in the room, and even a hair dryer which was greatly appreciated.
However, there were a few things that were not ideal. The shower door/walls are not sealed properly so it's very easy for the water to leak out and flood the bathroom when you take a shower. I ended up having to shower as close as possible to the front wall where the shower head is located and make sure the shower head was not pointing outwards to be extra careful. Also, I tend to like firmer beds so the airbed was not very comfortable for me. The first night was quite hot and there were some mosquitoes that might have come in through the window screen into the room but the next day Wendell turned on the air conditioning and closed the window before I came back to sleep and it was a lot better.
Great location right across from Berlin bistro and a very comfy bed! Wendell had everything you could need for the night and was very welcoming.
Our stay with Wendell was simply wonderful! My friend Chrissi and I set out on a trip down the West Coast starting in Seattle and by the time we had made it to Long Beach we were so thankful to find ourself in a clean, comfortable, and super accommodating place. Wendell greeted us outside his home and brought us to the parking garage (which was awesome!). His place is beautiful and the room we stayed in had its own private entrance. Wendell gave us some recommendations for dinner which we simply walked to and the next morning he had breakfast all set out and ready for us. His roommate, Anthony, and their two dogs were welcoming as well! The next day we walked around Long Beach's cute shops as well as along the beach. I would highly recommend staying here!
Had a great experience, very satisfied.
This is our third time staying here and it won't be our last. Anytime we travel to Long Beach, this is the go to spot.
Great place! Close to everything, and Wendell is a very nice and detailed person. Dogs are cute : ) 25min to Disney and 35min to Hollywood. Air beds are good, too.
Wendell's place was absolutely perfect. He was willing to check me in around 10PM, and went over everything that I would need to know about the apartment and the area in great detail. There was a private entrance to the room, which I enjoyed, as I could have the freedom to come back whatever time I wanted without disturbing my hosts. Wendell provided small touches that really went a long way: bottled water in the closet of the room, a bowl of soaps and lotions, and even had an iron and ironing board there for me to use. There was secure parking in a garage, and the entire place was very safe.
The location is superb: there are many restaurants and shops within walking distance (a very tasty vegan café is across the street for any plant-based travelers looking at staying in Long Beach) and the area is a great place to run or take a scenic walk.
All in all, an excellent rental and a fabulous stay!
Wendell was an absolutely phenomenal guest--respected my place, accommodated me on check-in and check-out, left the place cleaner than it was before, and was an all-around nice person. Would recommend to anybody--always welcome in my home! A++
