Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Charming 1920's Cottage steps away from California Institute of Technology and South Lake shopping district. This 1100 square feet single family home with plenty of windows and natural light has a great view of the San Gabriel Mountain range, and just a few blocks from San Marino's mansions.

It includes a full working kitchen (gas stove) a large breakfast room with washer/dryer.

Two Bedrooms each have queen sizes beds and a comfortable pull out sofa is in the living room. The dining room can seat six people beautifully.

Wireless Internet, TV with DVD player. Clean linens and towels, Iron and ironing board. Hardwood floor, original artwork makes this home a fresh experience, giving a southern California feel.

Central Air Conditioning and Heat.

Outside sitting area.

Do not be surprise to find local organic eggs in your welcome basket and with a little luck a local tour in our Traction Avant almost as old as the cottage....

The house is located a block from Cal Tech, two blocks from South Lake shopping District. Less than a mile from the Historic Langham Hotel founded by the Huntingtons. A little over a mile from the Huntington Library in San Marino which is a lovely walk. In the opposite direction about the same distance sits the The Pacific Asia Museum and the Pasadena Museum of California Art. A mile further is the Famed Norton Simon Museum with Old town Pasadena's exciting venues of bars and wonderful restaurants.

The historic Santa Anita Race track is but a 10 minute drive and we are 5 blocks from the Rose Parade route on Colorado and 3 miles from the Rose bowl.

If you like hiking the trails at the top of Lake Avenue will be a delight with a spectacular view of Southern California including Catalina Island.

Public transportation is available close by with the Metro Gold Line to downtown Los Angeles and beyond.

Several grocery stores (Traders Joe's/ Fresh& Easy) are within walking distance as well as a Peet's coffee and a Starbucks. Whole Food is less than 2 miles away.

Movie theaters are close by.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions,

all emails will be responded within 24 hours or less.

Thank You & Happy Travel.

lovely cottage near Caltech with an extremely nice host

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely and roomy with comfortable beds, and Cynthia left us fresh eggs, butter milk and bread in the fridge! The location was excellent, the host was extremely accommodating and helpful, and we will certainly try to book this place again the next time we are in town.

Well described, fit our needs perfectly

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable cottage with a great location. We had a fun vacation with our three children. Easy drive to Dodger's stadium and Universal Studios. The house is a short walk away from dining and shopping. Thanks for your hospitality. We had a wonderful stay.

Great communication, clean, sweet and very convenient

  • 5 of 5

Really, this appealing house was more than my family and I hoped for.

There was off street parking, and the neighbourhood was quiet and pleasant. It is close to groceries, hiking, Cal Tech, and upscale shopping. We walked to our "chore" destinations after our days of sight seeing in L.A. and area.

The house is well appointed, warm and just the perfect size for our family. It is bordered by an attractive little yard. Eclectic art decorates the walls. It isn't the cookie cutter type of place that has matching Ikea furniture- so it does have squeaky cabinets, old style locks, and scratched chairs. It seems to be taken care of with great attention to detail.

Cynthia and Bruno are kind, interesting and more than helpful. I would stay here again, and I DO recommend it. Delightful!!

Cozy and endearing cottage. Didn't take long at all to feel comfortable and at home.

  • 5 of 5

Charming and adorable! Bright sunlight, spacious and very clean! Bruno and Cynthia are wonderful hosts, they've thought of everything from some children's toys, plenty of towels to an amptly furnished kitchen and outdoor table and chairs. Bed #2 is perfection. Bed #1 I hear is pretty great too. The washer and dryer are such a wonderful convenience. This is an excellent property and the owners take great pride in making guests feel welcome. I highly recommend 👍𣐽𣑍
