Views span from downtown Los Angeles to the Vincent Thomas bridge to the Port of Los Angeles to the open ocean in our three-bed, two-bath home. Abundant, free street parking in immediate vicinity.
You'll have private use of our guest bedroom. The queen bed has luxury linens and a down comforter in winter/quilt in summer. There's an air conditioner in the bedroom for the summer, and central heating for the winter. You'll also have your own dedicated private bathroom. Your space is in the back of the house and ours is in the front of the house, so there are no concerns about noise while sleeping, etc.
Bathroom -- you'll have private use of the back bathroom, which is near the guest bedroom. It has a shower, toilet, and sink, and there will be space on a shelf for your toiletries.
Note that we also sometimes rent out an additional guest bedroom. If you have others traveling with you, please consider renting out both rooms. Also please be aware that there could be additional guests in the house with you. They will NOT be in your bedroom or bathroom, and their room is on the opposite end of the house from yours.
Gym-- Wade and Krista are avid CrossFit-ers, and have turned the back yard into a gym area. We don't have cardio equipment (that's what the area hills are for), but we have tons of weight lifting stuff and related gear.
Why San Pedro? -- Perhaps you're heading out for a cruise, in which case you need an alternative to the local hotels before you embark. Or perhaps you've heard about this adorable port town and want to check it out -- who wouldn't? The views are stunning in every direction, the wild peacocks roam about a mile away from the house, the Port and related museums offer access to LA's abundant history, the Korean friendship bell and Point Fermin park provide some of the most spectacular views in the entire county. We're minutes away from Long Beach, with its shopping, dining, and culture, and Palos Verdes, with one of the best drives in the United States and abundant golf!
You'll be staying in the guest bedroom at the rear of the house, which has an adjacent private bathroom. You'll have access to the kitchen, dining area, and living room.
Feel free to use the kitchen to cook meals if you want to relax at home, or I can provide recommendations for the local restaurants if you prefer to go out.
Interazione con gli ospiti
Wade and Krista -- we are your hosts, and we want to share everything we love about the area with you. We've lived in Los Angeles for about twenty years, and together we own and operate SUP with Wade, the only five-star rated stand up paddleboard company on Yelp in San Pedro. Wade is also a bad-ass helicopter pilot, and if you want to see LA from the air, he's your guy to make it happen. Krista is a lawyer by day, but she works for the county and promises not to cross-examine you.
You'll be sharing a space with us, and we can be as present or as absent as you want/need during your trip. Krista is gone by eight a.m. and usually returns around six p.m., makes dinner, and is in bed by ten. Wade's schedule is more flexible, but he spends a fair amount of his time out in his converted garage/man cave, so he won't bug you unless you want him to.
Altre cose da evidenziare
We sometimes have dinner parties and small social events. These do not go late (everyone is gone by ten p.m.), they are not super loud (we'll have mellow music in the background), and you are welcome to join us. If you would strongly prefer not to have anything social happening while you stay with us, please e-mail us before booking to ask what, if anything, is planned during your dates.
Note that some of the reviews mention breakfast, which Krista previously provided. Her schedule changed recently, and breakfast is no longer included with the listing. The price has been adjusted accordingly. There will be coffee, tea, sugar, and half and half available in the morning.
We are a reasonably quiet home. No parties, etc. You can stay up late listening to music and chatting, we just expect things not to get wild and crazy. Other than that, we're pretty easy to get along with and flexible.
NO SMOKING, NO PETS
We cannot accommodate late check-out or early check-in. All or some portion of the house is rented out every night, and we need the time from 11:00 to 5:00 to prepare the home for the next guests.
