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 wonderful place for a family gathering.
The house is beautiful, super clean, and in a great location. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We had a fabulous weekend here!
The house is beautiful and very comfortable. Our hosts were gracious and helpful. The outdoor space is a perfect retreat from the heat of S. California.
Perfectly warm and charming! Didn't want to leave
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!
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!
Fantastic experience start to finish!
The homeowners were incredible hosts! Property was everything as described. Highly recommend!
Amazing home and lovely hosts...the place to stay in Pasadena/LA area
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.
