My boyfriend and I were in Long Beach for a wedding. Everyone else in the wedding party stayed at hotels but I'm so glad we ended up choosing the airbnb route! Sara and her husband were so warm and welcoming, they made us feel at home right away.
We were in town for just a couple of days, but the house was perfect (sunny, clean, modern but with a comfortable vibe) and their dog Jackson was an adorable added bonus.
Highlights: Sara's guidebook and list of recommendations in Long Beach were extremely helpful in steering us to some good restaurants, as well as the bikes they made available for our use throughout our stay.
We couldn't stop bragging about our experience to the rest of the wedding party and we would definitely come back next time we're on the West coast!
Thank you Alex. I'm sorry about the towel, I thought I had covered that. I am ordering a few new towels and turning the older ones into dog toys. Thank you for being flexible!
I stayed with Sara and Josh for two nights while I was becoming acquainted with the area (I'm moving there for a job soon), and had a fantastic time! They're both extremely friendly, warm, fun, and accommodating, even when my flight got in late and I had no idea how to operate a simple driveway gate :-)
Sara gave excellent insights about the area, and offered me a bicycle to cruise around with. They're both very passionate about making and keeping Long Beach an amazing place, and I couldn't have imagined a better experience. Also, Jackson is adorable.
Sara was great to communicate with - fast, friendly, helpful. She informed me of the FREE yoga on the beach 7 days a week. Great recommendation.
The apartment is in such a great location. We parked the car for two days and walked or biked everywhere (free cruiser bikes to use). My husband had a conference at the convention center and it took him 5-8min to bike there. We felt safe walking/biking back to the apartment late at night.
Great restaurants/bars in the area:
Lola's, BO-Beau's, The Attic, Breakfast Bar, Berlin Coffee House, Sky Room (good Happy Hour)
We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Long Beach.

Aww thank you Maggie. That is a very nice review. I appreciate it, and loved to see you took advantage of the guidebook and all of the wonderful restaurants in the area.
I had a great stay at Sara's. My friend and I were traveling for a one day conference and even though we were only there for 12 hours, Sara made everything super comfortable for us. She's so fun and cool, and her house is beautiful and super clean. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Long Beach!
Sara was very accommodating , our trip down from SF took an hr longer than we had planned but she waited for us to get there & unpack then walked us through the places to see,what the house was all about .We really had the place to ourselves even though we were so busy visiting friends & celebrating my birthday .Josh was just as informational telling us where we could bike to ,really cool people.
Sara and Josh were great hosts! We really enjoyed our stay in long beach. Sara gave us the run down on her favorite places and sites (on her guest book) and we loved using their cruiser bikes to get around! Their dog was friendly and the apartment was clean. We did a lot of traveling/sight seeing down the coast so the only thing to keep in mind is that it was really hard to find a parking spot when we came back at night. But we would definitely stay here again should we find ourselves in long beach!
Sara and her hubby were absolutely wonderful! Very welcoming and accomidating. Their home is beautiful, relaxing and super close to several resturants, bars and a grocery store. They are on a bike path, so you don't need a car while you visit LB. There is metro station you take to get to and from LAX is a short walk from their home! The bedroom and bed are very comfortable and inviting. Jackson, the pup, is super sweet, too.
This stay at Sara and Josh's was my first ever with airbnb, and also my first extended trip traveling alone. I truly had no idea what to expect.. And had some reservations about it!
It was such a pleasure to have chosen their place to stay. From the moment I arrived (very late at night with them waiting up for me!), I felt welcome, informed and confident. Sara took time to go over a local map with me and wrote down all the local hot-spots. They both put in lovely efforts to make me feel comfortable, like making me some delicious breakfasts, coffee, and even things like assisting me with ordering Uber cars and finding my way! I was even able to meet and spend time with some of their friends, which was lovely and made me feel even more at home.
Their dog Jackson is beautiful and friendly, and also quite calm!
If I return to long beach, I wouldn't hesitate in staying with these two again!
Terrific hosts! Friendly with a smile. Pictures are accurate, dog is very calm and loves to be pet.
Only about a mile walk from the downtown/convention/oceanfront pier areas.
I would definitely stay again.
Sara and Josh are fantastic! Beautiful space in a great location. I felt totally at home, and appreciated the break from my usual routine of hotels. They went above and beyond to make me feel welcome, including a great breakfast, map of the area, and local restaurant suggestions. I would recommend them to anyone, and will be back if my work (or fun!) brings me to Long Beach again.
Sarah is the best! She is so fun to talk with, kind, and respectful of the house. It also helps that she's a puppy whisper'er. My puppy Meili fell in love with her instantly. Highly recommend her as a guest.
Not only is Sara a fellow super host, but she is a super guest. We had a fantastic time chatting with her and sharing hosting stories. We hope to have the opportunity to host her again.
Sara was a great guest! Good communicator and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend a visit from Sara!
Sara and Josh we're great guests! Really self sufficient and friendly to have around. We didn't overlap a lot during their one night stay but it was easy to tell what nice people they are, we highly recommend them.
It was a pleasure hosting Sara. It was easy to communicate with her about her arrival and she kept the room and house looking great. Happy to host her again.
Sara and the whole family were great. It was a quick stay, only the one night but we all had a good time, caught up on some of that TV series thing, and some laughs. Great guests, highly recommend.
I so enjoyed having this lovely couple stay with me. They have the sweetest dog, Jackson, who I fell madly in love with. He is the best behaved and quietest dog I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. It was great talking with and sharing Airbnb tips with these folks who are also Airbnb hosts. I would invite these folks back anytime... but they have to bring Jacks with them!
Hi, having Sara and her husband stay with us was a treat. Very interesting people, easy going, good wine drinkers and left the apartment in great condition! We would gladly have them again and if we travel to LA we would try to stay with them. Extra nice touch with the environmental conscious aspect to our discussions!
Very pleasant and friendly guests whom have AirBnB host experience of their own so know how everything works. It was a pleasure having them around.
Sara, her husband and friends are very friendly and communicative people. They were respectful and helpful guests. The apartment was clean and tidy after their stay. They're welcome at home at any time. Highly recommended.
