Overview

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.

Perfectly warm and charming! Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our family gathering. It is an inviting, charming, warm, lovely home with gorgeous outdoor space you will not want to leave! Having this home to stay in for the weekend is what made our gathering so special. So much better than being in a hotel!!

Beautiful, comfortable and clean. Outdoor area is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful experience here! Both Duane and Linda were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The house/property were just what we were looking for while doing some college searches for our daughter. The house was very well maintained, clean throughout and beautifully decorated. The outdoor living area was especially enjoyable. Swimming in the pool (with the basketball hoop especially nice for my son), ping pong, cabana, etc. were fantastic! Thank you very much for sharing your home with our family!

Amazing home and lovely hosts...the place to stay in Pasadena/LA area

  • 5 of 5

From the warm greeting we recieved and the welcoming atmosphere of the impeccably decorated home, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our 10 days in this comfortable and charming home. The hosts thought of everything--every detail to make you feel at home. The gardens are beautiful, lush with blooming plants. The outside cabana with the large screen TV that you can see from the hot tub was a favorite of all guests. We enjoyed cooking and grilling as well as wonderful local restaurants. Long walks around the quiet neighborhood gave forth the gift of a view of downtown LA, the ocean, valleys, and snow-topped mountains. I have never felt so comfortable outside of my own home as I did in this house. We are thankful to have had such a great experience.

Beautiful and welcoming home!

  • 5 of 5

The San Rafael Home was the perfect place for my husband and I along with our adult children to stay over the New Year's holiday. It is a beautiful home with everything you need to relax and enjoy each other. The beds were all very comfortable and the kitchen includes everything you might want for your stay. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and the cabana. Despite the chilly temperatures, we spent New Year's Eve in the cabana with the fire blazing, playing games and watching the ball drop on the TV. Our whole family loved the house and our kids are trying to find a time we can stay again.

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!
