Originally from the NY metro area, I've been a Californian half my life. Jeff and I are now happily living the good life here on Lido Isle in the new home we finished building this year.
We love traveling and meeting new people and have spent a lot of time in Europe Australia, New Zealand and Israel. Living at the beach is a lifelong dream for me and we have hosted many guests in our home (some for months). We are organized and run a tight ship - if we promise something you can expect we will over-deliver. We are also ethical and will go the extra mile to make sure our guests feel well cared-for. Any guest of ours can have a very private stay (coming and going from their own french-door access) or join in with our family where Jeff is likely to be concocting some gourmet delicacy - we are open to all preferences.
Although we are new to Airbnb, we are veteran hosts and can furnish any prospective guest with immediate, objective references. In fact, you may even find yourself speaking with one of our friends who spent the night in our mattress factory showroom (we manufactured high-end organic mattresses for 15 years). Years ago we hosted 7 couples and their animals for several nights during a brush fire in north Orange County.
