Newly renovated 1932 Spanish guest house with just the right mix of vintage charm and modern amenities. Coved ceilings for those that love them. Completely new kitchen with granite countertops, range, microwave, refrigerator, fully outfitted with dishes and all. Original vintage tile in place in the bathroom for those that appreciate all things vintage. Comfy bedroom with 1 queen sized bed and a TV. Second bedroom has cool bunk beds with a twin bed in the upper bunk and a full size bed for 2 on the the bottom bunk. This room comes with a writing desk for you to work on your laptop or use as an office and take breaks on the bed. ;-)
Outside lounge area with hotel quality furniture for that afternoon read or outdoor lunch. There is even a tea cart that facilitates bringing things from the kitchen. We love the cart ourselves ;-).
Cellar for extra storage. It's a great space to store your luggage so you can enjoy the home without them in the way. Restored original hardwood floors.
Street parking.(Optional) 1 car parking garage available for an extra fee depending on the length of your stay. No pets. Non-smoking property. Property is conveniently located near: Art Galleries, Downtown, Ports O'Call, Restaurants, Coffee Shops, Pubs, Cruise Ships, Harbor, Point Fermin, Terranea Resort, Marymount College, Farmers Market on Friday mornings. Near the USS Iowa, Cabrillo Beach, and Crafted Marketplace! The busy Port of Los Angeles provides a dynamic constantly changing scene as ships from all over the world arrive and depart. Ride over the bridge to Long Beach to the Queen Mary.
Perfect location to stay at if you come in a couple days early for your cruise or to stay in town after your cruise.
We don't mind picking you up from the airport: Long Beach airport is the closest or LAX. Since we are only 5 minutes away from the cruise ships we can pick you up or drop you off all for an extra nominal fee. Let us know what your needs are ahead of time and we will do our best to accommodate them.
You may on occasion spot our pet Bunnies hopping around outside. We rescued and adopted a few. On occasion we have foster bunnies too.
Picture yourself here... just bring your suitcase and you are home!

About the owner: We are both educators. Gene is in admin. at a local elementary school. Jane teaches art at the elementary and university level. We have 2 grown children. We just remodeled our guest house and have had a lot of fun doing it. This is our first property together. We love to travel and enjoy sharing travel adventure stories with fellow travelers. We have a bunny that you'll fall in love with too.
Why the Owner Chose Central San Pedro, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
San Pedro is a port district of the city of Los Angeles. It is a harbor town rich in history. From once being the fishing port in the nation to now having the USS Iowa, Point Fermin, near Terranea Resort, Long Beach. Generations of families still live in the community. It is quite a unique place a small town within large Los Angeles, kind of like the last little secret harbor town. We love that.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
You'll find our home has been restored as much as possible to be charming and honor the vintage Spanish style bungalow that it is. It is cozy in the sense of feeling like home immediately. You'll love the completely new kitchen, original vintage tile in the bathroom, new TV, cellar, and bedrooms. Original hardwood floors, coved ceilings and hallway niche. Everything you need is here, books, dishes, board games, linens...just bring your clothes. Look for our pet bunny grazing in the yard. She is friendly and likes to play. We live in the front house, so we are within reach. We are also happy to serve as your concierge. :-)
