Gorgeous studio/pool house. The studio is adjacent to the pool and spa. Guests are welcome to use this area during their stay. The beautiful pool area right outside studio door has a deck with comfortable furniture and is very private from the main house. There is a fire pit and gas barbecue.
Please call us directly for same-day bookings as VRBO will not process them.
The pool warms up in the summer and is not heated year round. We would consider heating it for an additional fee in the Spring. Since the spa is attached to the pool it is not kept heated. We heat the spa for a few hours per days booked as guests request.
The pool is not fenced from the studio so may not be the best fit for young children.
There is no smoking.
The studio does not have a full kitchen. The sink in the bathroom is a utility sink, making doing dishes easier----think tiny house. We provide guests with paper goods and guests are welcome to leave dirty dishes for us to clean upon check out.
The studio has a very comfortable queen bed which is in an alcove which could provide privacy from the living area of the studio (see photos). The comfortable couch has a pull out bed, we are happy to provide a blow up queen mattress for guests to use on the pull out couch.
Our property is long and narrow and overlooks Millard Canyon with the main house up from the studio providing privacy for guests. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood (not a business district, as a hotel may be); therefore, we don't allow parties or noise after 10:00 pm.
Home is adjacent to the Angeles National Forest and hiking trails are right out the door. These trails a not crowded as trails on the east side of Altadena are. Many times--especially during the week you may have the whole beautiful mountain to yourself (see photos of hiking trial).
El Prieto Canyon right outside the door which are known as world-class mountain bike riding trails.
Large flat screen TV with cable and internet. The studio has a magnificent view to Catalina on a clear day or twinkly city views and overlooks beautiful Millard Canyon.
Altadena is in the foothills right above Pasadena--a short 15 minute drive, twenty minutes to downtown LA and 45 minutes to Santa Monica beach. You really feel like you are getting away from it all but are very close to anything you might need. Very comfortable for the extended stay traveler.
VRBO does not allow same day bookings. Please contact us directly if you'd like to same day book so we an arrange this.
JPL is 2 miles away, Cal Tech is close. This would be a nice place to stay if you are visiting either of those places. Ask about the availability of our special business traveler rate.
Come for a weekend retreat. A weekend spent in our studio could consist of coffee or tea pool side, hiking or world-class mountain biking on El Prieto trail right outside the studio door, a relaxing massage on the pool deck or inside the roomy studio (additional fee to masseuse) and a swim in the pool or a soak in the spa. Finish the evening with a barbecue and toasting marshmallows at the fire pit. It's a beautiful place to stay for a retreat.
Great option if your coming into town for the Rose Bowl games or parade. It's about a 5 mile drive.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Amazing hiking and mountain bike trails right outside the door. Lounging by this pool makes you feel like you really are 'away from it all ' but your 15 minutes from Pasadena and 20 minutes from downtown LA. Very comfortable for business travelers.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: I, Margaret was raised in both Southern and Northern California and am a huge fan of California. I was happy to meet and marry Dennis---a good mid-western boy from Chicago in 2000. We cherish this really special property which we have totally remodeled and enjoy sharing the studio with guests. No small children live on the property.
Why the Owner Chose North Arroyo, Pasadena, CA, USA:
We visited this property at an open house Mother's Day 2001. It was a hot May Day and when we stood on the patio overlooking Millard Canyon and felt the cool breeze and took in the amazing view we found home. The studio is very private from our home and very beautiful.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Views and natural beauty! Beautiful pool at a great price. Very comfortable and roomy. Enjoy a soak in the jacuzzi after a long work day or a relaxing day of hiking and site-seeing!
