About the Homestay
Your private bedroom is a few steps from the main bathroom where you'll find toothpaste, shampoo, clean towels and soap. A queen size bed faces the TV. A Keurig machine for coffee and tea is available for your use. This is a family neighborhood with well kept lawns and friendly neighbors. A patio table and chairs are available in the backyard for you to eat outside or simply enjoy our California sunshine. My home is 10 minutes from Knott's Berry Farm and 15-20 minutes from Disneyland. In addition to hosting, I am a special education teacher in the Long Beach area. I have four adult children and two awesome grandsons. I love gardening, music, and books. I am an artist and a writer, and I am learning to play the cello. The washer and dryer are available for guests who stay a minimum of two nights.

My home is located in a quiet neighborhood on a U-shaped cul-de-sac. There is a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf coffee shop and a Junior Walmart 5 minutes away by car. I am freeway close to the 91 and 5 freeways. Knott's Berry Farm is a ten minute drive, and Disneyland is approximately 15-20 minutes away. There are many beautiful California beaches nearby as well. Long Beach Pier is a very popular tourist attraction. Cerritos Public Library and Cerritos Parks are also fun places to visit.
