About the property

4 Br (sleeps 8), 3 Bath, 4 Fireplaces, Cabana, Pool, Spa

This luxurious, beautiful garden retreat is minutes from the Rose Bowl and the Historic Colorado Bridge. Lush landscaping provides serene views from all of the rooms. Skylights create a bright, airy interior in the living room and kitchen. Fireplaces provide an inviting atmosphere in the living room, family room, master bedroom, and outdoor cabana. The family room, which extends beyond the living room and dining area, provides a comfortable setting for watching TV and movies, reading in the window seat, or just hanging out. Original paintings are beautifully displayed throughout the entire home. Upstairs is the expansive master suite with a king bed, cozy fireplace, and a spa like marble bathroom. Downstairs provides another master suite with its own Carrera marble bathroom and queen bed. Two additional bedrooms, (one with a queen the other with two twin beds) and a beautifully designed marble, Waterworks bathroom complete the downstairs sleeping areas. All of the bedrooms are luxurious, serene, and comfortable. The kitchen is a lovely place to cook or relax together with a view (and the sound) of the front fountain and garden flora. It provides microwave, dishwasher, coffee pot and blender (and other appliances) allowing for special meals in this home away from home. The lushly landscaped back yard provides an amazing setting for outdoor living. A gorgeous pool and spa are surrounded by fountains, a courtyard table for alfresco dining, and a charming cabana with fireplace, outdoor couches, and a TV which can be watched from the spa. Each evening or night must include a relaxing soak in the delightful spa (complete with foot jets:) which comfortably seats 8. At nighttime the backyard is magical with many glowing lantern candles throughout the yard and cabana along with garden, pool and cabana lighting. At the guest's request, the pool may be heated to a very comfortable 87 degrees for 4 season, day and nighttime pool enjoyment. Those who have discovered San Rafael House have loved its many pleasures, including Mina, our friendly indoor-outdoor cat. *Direct Inquiries required for additional property information and reservations.

A GREAT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 delightful days with my family at the San Rafael Home. While busy with the events of a family friend's wedding-it was wonderful to go back to this charming home close to everything but a world away to regroup!

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples shared this beautiful little gem of a house over Breeders Cup weekend. The house was perfect. The bedrooms had comfy beds and nice linens and the two living rooms ere beautiful and comfy also. But the backyard.... Awesome! Beautiful pool and hot tub and cabana with fireplace and tv. We lived out there! Such a nice private house to relax and enjoy friends and catch up with each other. I highly recommend this house to anyone! Thank you for sharing your home Linda!

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is gorgeous and in such a lovely neighborhood. We had a group of adults here for a convention at the Pasedena convention center. It housed us perfectly with great space to spread out in as well as a wonderful kitchen & patio to enjoy cooking meals. Pool and spa were well utilized and appreciated. Can't say enough great things about this house! Duane & Linda were super friendly, accommodating, & a breeze to work with. Thank you both for your hospitality!

Oasis in Pasadena

We loved this house and its wonderful backyard pool. Everything was fully equipped and beautiful, and the owners were very welcoming. We highly recommend this property and plan to rent it again ourselves too!

beautifully apportioned property for family events.

  • 5 of 5

The landscaping is absolutely gorgeous, with a beautiful patio to sit and enjoy it. The outdoor seating areas and cabana provide ample space to hang out and enjoy the wonderful weather. The house is nicely appointed, comfortable, and very clean. It accommodates 8 very comfortably. We had a gathering after a graduation that worked out really well, as the property has a nice flow from inside to outside in the patio. The owners were very responsive to all of our requests. We loved staying here!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The San Rafael House was home base for 6 men while we participated in a golf tournament at nearby Annandale Golf Club. This is a beautiful home that is well suited to host any number of combinations of visitors. We just wish we had more time away from our scheduled activities to enjoy all this wonderful home had to offer.
