About the Property
Two-Bedroom, One-Bath Garden Retreat nestled at base of San Gabriel Mountains!
The Bathroom is situated between the two Bedrooms and offers a separate shower and bathtub, fresh linens, and all basic toiletries, including shampoo and conditioner, blow dryer, shaving cream and razors, soap and more!
The Living Room offers a fully working fireplace, a flat screen TV (includes Netflix, Hulu, Showtime, Amazon. No local channels), sound system and cozy sectional with a small, adjacent Dining Room.
The newly-renovated, full-size Kitchen offers full use of all appliances, pots and pans, utensils and dishware. Free coffee, creamer, sugar is also provided. Please note: as water conservation is important to the owner, there is no dish washer in the kitchen.
Sneak outside your bedroom patio door and lounge under a giant tree, or pick fresh (seasonal) veggies and herbs from the garden.
Guests who are fond of curiosities and oddities will delight in the smattering of skeletons and Botero prints throughout the house; while more conservative guests will appreciate the owner's five-star customer service, discretion, cleanliness and well-tended gardens.
The house and the gardens are completely yours, while the owner stays onsite and on-call for your every need in a detached bungalow in the back garden.
*There is two units on the property. Owner lives in back house that is located a few hundred feet from the front house*
The home is a stone’s throw away from gorgeous hiking trails featuring waterfalls; the local Farmers Markets; Old Town Pasadena; the Pasadena Rose Bowl; Pasadena City College; Art Center; Caltech; downtown Los Angeles; Hollywood; supermarkets; churches; gyms; world-class shopping, convenience and venues!
Just a few miles to JPL, nearby bus lines, light rail, 30 minutes to Burbank Airport, 60 minutes to LAX; ask owner for map and local public transportation information.The nearest bus line is 3/4 of a mile; therefore, access to a rental car or bicycle is highly recommended.
Ample free street parking in front of house.
The Owner has one (1) mountain bike that guests can rent for a $20 flat fee (lock included) to use as personal transportation during your visit or to take out on the trails!
House Rules are outlined in a handout that will be presented to guests upon check-in. Guests will use side entrance off of kitchen.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: As an avid world traveler (Italy; India; Iceland - next stop Costa Rica!), I've been a guest at numerous, private-home B 'n' B's. Therefore, I can understand, anticipate, and exceed my guests' needs and expectations. In addition to offering my home as a B 'n' B, I manage my own business in a demanding, customer-focused profession which requires a true love of meeting new people and being of service. When not traveling overseas, I like to hike, bike (motor or cycle) and explore anywhere in the U.S. that offers gorgeous landscapes.
Why the Owner Chose North Arroyo, Pasadena, California, United States of America:
I live in the Pasadena area because it is a breathtaking, world-class place to hang your hat. Not only does the city itself offer live theater, museums, hiking trails, year-round clement weather, upscale shopping, and renown restaurants; you are a short drive away from the unprecedented vibrancy of Los Angeles and its diverse neighborhoods: each offering a completely different culture and list of attractions. You are as close to the mountains as you are to the ocean, and technically, you can ski and surf within same day! Please ask for recommendations and a guest brochure!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
My home is representative of my love of nature: surrounded by trees, foothills, hiking trails and the gardens I've built, which are both a joy and an obsession. I enjoy sharing my home as well as my beautiful neighborhood, which offers as much culture as it does aesthetic beauty. Welcome!
