I will be more than happy to host you and give you tips on places to go and see from mountains to oceans. If you like the beaches, I have a boogie board that you may use.
Our interaction is based on your level of comfort when it comes down to communication. I'm very extroverted so feel free to pick my brain for things to see and do in OC. The NeighborhoodThe community was built in 2004. It is on the newer side of Tustin which is only footsteps away from Irvine, CA (ranked the safest city in America). It is very safe and quiet neighborhood.

Major box retailers (Ranch 99 Market, Costco, Target, Wholefoods, Sprouts, Traders Joe, CVS, Walmart, Lowes/Home Depot, TJ Max, Ulta, REI Sporting Goods, Best Buy, Cinemas) are all within 1 mile radius!

Within 5 minutes walking distance from the neighborhood, there is a Tustin Metrolink Train Station. From there, the train takes you places to Orange County, Los Angeles County, Riverside County, and Oceanside. Local buses to the beaches, UC Irvine, Orange County Airport (SNA) depart from this Tustin Metrolink Train Station. You can also get on the Amtrak with a transfer if you want to travel further out to San Diego County.
If you like the beaches, there is a bus stop footsteps away from our neighborhood. It is a DIRECT bus ride (bus #70) to Huntington Beach sand or go to Dana Point Beach sand (bus #90) with no transfer. From there, you can hop on a bus that travels along Pacific Coast Highway (bus #1). Or, take Bus #42 that goes to Newport Beach sand. If you like spending a day in Laguna Beach Downtown (and sand), taking the bus will require one transfer. Easy Peasy!! It can't get any simpler than that!
Bus fare is only $2. It's best you buy a DAY PASS for $5 and travel unrestricted. Go to octa dot.nett for more information on bus routes and schedules.
For shuttles that are operated by the City of Irvine, go to irvineshuttle dot.nett. The operating hours are restricted to early AM and late afternoon PM commuters. Fare is only $1! Bonus if you purchase 10 passes for $5!! The shuttle offers a direct ride to and from the Orange County Airport (SNA) and the Metrolink Train Station. Please go to their website and see Route #A and #B schedules.
Bottom line: If traveling from out of town, there is NO reason to rent a car. Buses, shuttles, and train will get you around town. It's much simpler than other places on B&B because I live nearby the train station.
Location, Location, Location!!! Did I mentioned "Location?" :) Other Things to NoteI do have a small 11 pound dog that is super friendly. He stays in my room majority of the time. He is not allowed to be on your bedroom floor level. If you are not comfortable with pets, then this place may not be suitable for you.
