Lovely, cozy guest house

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cozy and warm guest house in the back of the property among fruit trees and flowering plants. Steve and Lily are warm and welcoming. There is a lovely patio for meals and several comfy chairs for reading or just looking out on the greenery. I felt safe, comfortable and right at home. It was a great place to stay. I loved it and enthusiastically recommend!

Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were delighted with this cottage home. It was so lovely, inviting, clean, well-kept and quaint. We were greeted with fresh flowers (probably picked from their garden) as well as coffee available for the mornings! Steve and Lily were very friendly and even surprised us with some freshly picked tangerines from their orchard. The location was perfect for graduation at Fuller Theological Seminary as well as trips to Hollywood, Pasadena, and Universal Studios. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality Steve and Lily.

Close to everything but so serene!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in your bungalow! House was perfectly appointed and so comfortable. You had everything we needed for our stay and such a beautiful setting! We were so close to old town and Caltech campus - but up in the hills surrounded by gardens and peace and quiet - a real treat!! Loved the oranges picked right from the trees outside! Great little sun room off the kitchen was the perfect place to sit and read or catch up on emails. Bed was super comfy and all the decor was so charming! Didn’t have any trouble with WiFi or on demand viewing - and owners are very attentive if you ever have any questions. Happy to tell you about local farmers markets, hikes, spots to eat/shop. We felt right at home from the moment we walked through the trellised doorway covered by camellias and bougainvillea. Such a find!! We’ll plan our next trip to Pasadena (Arcadia) based on your availability!!

This was a perfectly lovely place to spend a week!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our visit was wonderful: the guesthouse was clean and included all amenities we needed. I loved that the cottage had windows that opened so we could enjoy the fresh air, sweet smells of spring, and peace and quiet of the neighborhood. Super comfy bed, great shower and tub, lots of places to sit and read, snack/breakfast/dine. Steve and Lily were the perfect hosts: friendly, helpful, generous, respectful of our time and privacy. I'd recommend this place and return in a heartbeat.
