About the Homestay
As long term residents in this family home you will share the house with two others if you are a couple or three others if you are by yourself (which explains the price structure). The room is large has three windows a queen bed with a good mattress and a private door to the outside.
My place is a good combination of light and shade and soothing colors.
The others in the house work from home during the pandemic and will be available for questions.
there is a shared good size bath. The kitchen is big and has a breakfast bar. In the backyard is an inviting shaded patio with table chairs BBQ and sofa and table tennis. Most of the time of the year there is a nice breeze. A sweater might be needed at times even in the middle of the summer, while air conditioning is not needed other than a couple days a year.
Public transportation is close to my home and one can get to most places in and around Long Beach Good restaurants and coffee shops are in walking distance.
When you apply please describe your situation and yourself in a few details so the others in the house who are in their late 20s can get a good idea about you. For me it is important to make sure you get along well for an extended time period.

Very friendly, a pleasant experience, widely recommended
This was our first experience with home stay. Cornelia is a lovely host, sociable, helpful and happy to interact with her guests or leave you to do your own thing. We chose to stay here as we wanted to be away from the frantic pace of Los Angeles to recuperate after a long flight from Australia and to chill out before going on a cruise leaving from the Port of Long Beach. Cornelia was happy to transport us to the port for a small fee. Cornelia has a comfy, cosy home in a nice area located within walking distance of several restaurants and close to the bus stop. This was important for us as we didn't have a car. We used a shuttle bus from LA airport to get to Long Beach. The distance from the airport was approximately 25 km. It takes about one hour with the traffic.
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
