Gilda made me feel comfortable immediately by leaving strawberries and bagels as a welcome treat. When we met, it was like greeting a dear friend. My room was charming and inviting, with a huge walk-in closet. It offered much more than I thought it would. For example, a large dresser, a desk and chair for my computer, an end table for my little goodies, and a comfortable bed with shams and pillows. The room is light and airy, with a large screen TV and silver accessories.
Because mine was a working holiday, I was pleased with the quiet home and neighborhood. I was able to accomplish a great deal of writing in relative quiet. The lighting is excellent and modern. Two parks and playgrounds are a short walk away, and all conveniences are a few minutes by car. But the best part of staying at Gilda's is her professionalism and easy nature. She is a great host.
The private bath is just a few steps away, with a great tub and shower. All linens and bedding are soft and comfy!
The neighborhood is safe and well lit at night. I had my own parking space in front of the house (on the street), which made it easy for me to carry things in and out when necessary.
Gilda always has fresh fruit in the kitchen and will share a meal if she or the guest have time.
I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend her private room, whether for work or for exploring Orange County. It is truly a haven.
