Laguna Beach--no better place to be. Beautiful beaches. World class art festivals. Great restaurants. Live music. And then there is Bluebird Canyon, a little woodsy enclave--it's like you are in the country but you are near it all.

Der Wohnraum

Currently the city of Laguna Beach has placed a "moratorium" on all short term rentals through AirBnB and similar websites. That is not to say you won't find them; they are just not "legal" for the time being. I consider that a great loss, because I really enjoyed hosting people from all over, and, for guests, it is really hard to find reasonable accommodations in a small beach town, and so many will be going elsewhere. Currently, only long term rentals of a month or longer are allowed. Other than that . . .

Laguna Beach is a lovely coastal town surrounded by hills and wilderness preserves. Bluebird Canyon is a little gem tucked away in the middle of it all, a woodsy, quiet canyon, with its own little ecosystem of vegetation, birds and wildlife. If it is cloudy at the beach, it is probably sunny here. Our street is a one lane road and we are at the end of it, so it is very private. If guests are not accustomed to narrow roads in hilly areas, we suggest they arrive in daylight to see how it is laid out. We are almost exactly 1 mile to the beach and town. The house is on 4 separate levels, built into the hillside – enter at the top level and it goes down from there. (NB: A house on a hillside will have stairs.)

This listing is the 1st of two rooms I am offering -- with views into the back garden and little canyon. Ordinary rooms, I'd say, but in an extraordinary spot. Basic, affordable accommodations, nothing fancy – so you can do whatever it is that you came to Laguna to do. The rooms are on the lowest level of the house, mostly separate from the rest of the house, with a separate entrance to that level. They each have a queen size bed. They share a bath.

Guests are provided towels and washcloths. The bathroom is stocked with all the basic necessary supplies.

On the same level with the rooms is a small kitchenette area, with a small fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and a table and chairs.

After checking in, guests are welcome to come and go as they please.

Also sharing the premises, in addition to myself, are two greyhounds, regal, docile and friendly beings, and a cat, the real boss. My kids are grown but live nearby, and they might show up.

Zugang für Gäste

Included are off-street parking, wi-fi, and a common kitchenette area with coffee maker, small fridge and microwave.

What I have in the way of beach chairs, umbrellas, and Boogie boards are available to guests.

Guests are welcome to use the lower gardens and patio where there are tables and chairs available.

Guests must park in their designated parking spots; it is important that access to the road is not blocked at any time, nor the neighbors inconvenienced. It is a hillside road and some consider it challenging.

I do welcome guests into the upper part of the house if I am home. One of my favorite parts about hosting is meeting people and hearing about what they do or where they have been. But that is entirely up to the guest. Guest privacy is very important. Guests have their own kitchenette area; kitchen privileges in the main kitchen are not provided. Laguna has just about every kind of restaurant imaginable, and a Trader Joe's and Whole Foods Market among others.

Since I work at home, any of my papers, files, computers are strictly off limits. The master bedroom is a strictly private area and off limits. Other guests' bedrooms are off limits.

I am an attorney, trying to be retired, but not succeeding very well at the retiring part. So I am still working quite a bit. I have an office in town, and work mostly from home. I will be available to guests, although I am in and out most of the time. I am happy to get to know you, hear about your travels, where you are from, what you do. Or if you are not so inclined that is fine too. I have lived here for more than 30 years. I will be happy to give recommendations on where to go, where to eat, how to get around, where to park, when is the best time for this and that, and can add a little history along with it, if you want.

Weitere wichtige Infos

At this point I have hosted on AirBnB for a couple of years. It is an enriching experience. I have really enjoyed it. The next best thing to traveling is just meeting people from all over.

A note about the AirBnB experience: AirBnB is a unique experience. It is appreciated by those who want something less ordinary, and who in general are a little more adventurous and flexible. It is not for everyone.

Note on "monthly rate." The monthly rate September -May it is $1300. The monthly rate for June, July and August is $1800.

I do not like to have lots of rules, other than to be courteous and considerate. Come and go as you please. Mostly it is just common sense and common courtesy. Absolutely, let me know if anything is not right or if there is anything you need or anything I can do. Other than that, keep in mind: It's a house, not a hotel. There is no daily maid service. It is not soundproofed as a hotel would be. Keep the sound down after hours and be tolerant of normal sound levels. Keep your belongings in your room. The bath is shared; leave it clean for the next person. Rinse off and shake out any sand before coming inside. There is no smoking in the house. And the gates must close AND latch each time because the greyhounds can run far and fast if they get out -- and you will be the one to chase them!

The room was comfy with a nice view into the garden. It is a quiet neighborhood and a short drive to the ocean. There is a small shared fridge, what ist very nice for having breakfast like cereals with milk. The bathroom was not perfectly clean, so we cleaned it up.

I wish you had let me know. It is a shared bath and, while most all people are very respectful and clean up after themselves, occasionally some do not, at least not as much as we would like. We can't inspect it after every use. For that reason I ask guests to let me know if there is an issue, so that I can take care of it for them, and even have a little sign in the bathroom to that effect. And also I checked in with you guys a number of times when you were leaving in the morning, and coming back at night, to see if everything was okay and you never mentioned it. We take cleanliness very seriously. And everything is thoroughly cleaned after each guest leaves to be ready for the next. I understand you were probably trying to be polite, and I appreciate that you would try to take care of it yourself, but it would be much more helpful if you would let me know, rather than be unhappy and leave a negative review. I am just sorry it was not perfect for you. I thought you guys were great and I wish you the best.

The stay with Joslyn was perfect. She gave us good hints where to go and even booked us a table in a restaurant when we came in for the first night. This recommendation was so good that we went there again the other night. We decided to come back :-) see you next time joslyn and thanks for everything.

Joslyn is a wonderful host. Her home is beautiful and the room is stunning. Floor to ceiling windows and the most gorgeous view to wake up to every morning. Leave the window open at night and wake up to the birds singing you into a fresh day. Enjoy breakfast out on the patio out back and you won't want to go out for the day. The house is situated on a hill so the parking just takes some getting used to. The location can't be beat if you love beauty and wildlife. Just a mile from the PCH yet worlds away. If you enjoy serenity and calm this is the place for you.

Joslyn is a wonderful host! She puts guests first and ensures their comfort is met. She is a pleasure to know. The room is large and comfortable with large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the backyard/gardens. Bathroom and kitchenette is shared. Private entry is a plus! Location is 5-10 min walk to the trolley or 3-5min drive to Laguna's beaches, restaurants and entertainment.

Joslyn made me feel very welcome in her house. She brought me an extra fan because of the unseasonable heat. The neighborhood was beautiful, although the drive up the hill and down her narrow drive was a bit challenging.

Thank you for being adventurous -- to seek out our spot at the end of the one lane road. Once you have done it a time or two it is like nothing; promise. I think of it as the price of the privacy, tranquility, and quiet repose. Smaller car is better, though. I am glad you enjoyed the patio and garden for morning coffee. The air just has a great feel there, and there are usually lots of birds around. I need to remind myself to go down there more often in the mornings.

I cannot say enough great things about Joslyn and her place. It was the perfect spot in Laguna Beach - close to downtown Laguna and the beach. Room was clean and comfortable (great bed), and the homemade coffee pods Joslyn makes were incredible! She went above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of, and that all of our needs were met (i.e. provided us with beach blankets, gave us great tips for places to eat that we never would have found otherwise, etc). Overall, highly recommend!

I am an attorney and live in Laguna Beach, CA. I have 3 grown kids. Whenever I can, I travel with my buddies -- who are the most interesting people you would ever want to meet. Hosting on AirBnB has been such an adventure, and a privilege, meeting the greatest people from all over.
