Extra upstairs room in house. Bright & Sunny. Great base to explore SoCal. Walking distance to Beach & Downtown and Pacific City. Street Parking only but Uber and Lyft are usually only 2-4 minutes away. Room has a desk, a Twin bed with an optional Queen blowup in the closet. There is an additional twin blowup in the closet as well. The bathroom is upstairs as well and is shared with my daughter when she is here.
I am within walking distance to the beach (20 minutes my pace) and also have a nice backyard with table and chairs and flowers. There is electrical access and wifi access in the backyard as well. There is also a large green space behind the fence where I have set up a bench and maintain the green grass and flowers and gardening beds back there. Guests are invited to enjoy that space and enjoy the greenery.
Besides the room and the bathroom, you can also use the outside garden area that's on the right and the kitchen including the toaster and the Keurig. The fridge has a section for AirBnB guests where some items will be stocked or you can put your own items there. I recommend using the Water dispenser by the Patio Door for Alkaline water and to fill up the Keurig. Free coffee and creamer are available.
Guests should know that California permits recreational Marijuana and while I do not permit smoking in my house, the use of Marijuana in california is common and wide spread. This could be a plus for some but might be a no no for others. My nose is not great but I am told that some guest have smelled it in the neighborhood so keep that in mind. So along with the aroma of roses and flowers in the backyard, there could be weedy smells wafting over.
- Member making the reservation MUST send Gov't ID of other members of their party prior to arrival, vial Airbnb messenger.

I work from home (this home) during the day so I am always available but it does need to be fairly quiet (during the day) so I can work since some of my work is on the phone. If you need anything, please text me and I can get it to you right away. I love to hear stories of where you are from and what you do and what you are discovering during your stay here. I have travelled myself to places like San Francisco, New York, Atlanta, Germany, Austria, India and throughout California including hiking trips in Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia and many trips to Big Bear. If you need to know where the best restaurant is to view the sunset just ask me. I can also tell you about activities you can do that don't cost a lot of money, including some very secret and hidden away tide pools and Urban wilderness, right next to the ocean. We have places for Kayaking in Huntington Harbor, you can do a Harbor Cruise in Newport Harbor (and see the Mansions) or in Long Beach Harbor (and see the giant Container Ships). You can go on a Whale Watch Cruise from Newport Harbor and even Visit Catalina Island just off our coast. Those are just some of the attractions that are a bit off beat, aside from the REGULAR tourist attractions like Disneyland and Universal Studios and Knotts Berry Farm to name a few.
I am the father of 3 grown children and have lived in Huntington Beach, off and on, for 40 years. I love Science, History and Politics and I also enjoy all kinds of different music because I still Dj on weekends for an audience often VERY different from myself...and loving it. I have travelled in Europe, India and the United States and used to go hiking to the mountains both in Europe and locally in California. I keep fit by running and roller skating (yes, people still do that). I'm a SciFi fan and I am currently on a project binge watching all the old SciFi TV series I enjoyed in the past. I'm a lazy cook but enjoy eating my daughter's vegan cuisine. Keeps me healthy :).
