The high ceilings with many windows welcome the outdoor environment indoors visually accessing the outdoor living and dining rooms and swimming pool.

The tasteful 800 square foot casita has been recently renovated into an open floor plan, reflecting the spaciousness of a contemporary loft.

The bedroom is supplied with high count linens and down comforters, a walk-in closet, desk and chase lounge areas within the original redwood high-ceiling pavilion. The french doors open onto the pool patio and the fully furnished outdoor rooms. The casita is ideal for a single or a couple.

Exceptional casita on a grand property. A great getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the casita. The pool is fantastic. Much bigger than it appears in the photograph. The jacuzzi is great too. The property is clean an inviting, back a good ways from the main house. It's not as private as we hoped, but they do have to service the pool, so that is as expected. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed to cook and prepare your own meals. The bed is comfortable. My only recommendation would be to supply blinds behind the bed as it is a little uncomfortable knowing people can walk behind the casita and see in. While it's not likely, it made my wife uncomfortable.

Great spot to explore the area from.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, beautiful location. Good as a "home base", and to hang out by the pool. Close to hiking/mountain biking trails and to the highway to get to all of the LA area.

Private, relaxing hideaway in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Tricia graciously greeted us upon arrival and showed us around the property. It was very well equipped and clean. Ample places to sit and read in the tranquil garden surrounding the pool. As the sun moved, it seemed like we could move to any corner of the property and still find another comfy place to sit. Plenty of outdoor seating for enjoying breakfast or an evening BBQ poolside or in other parts of the garden. Although the pool was a little on the cool side (can pay for heating), it was in the sun most of the day and was a refreshing break. We loved watching all the birds in the tall trees surrounding the property - we even saw daily what appeared to be a green parrot. We felt like we were on some tropical island as we stepped out of the bedroom, through the French doors to the pool deck. Very peaceful neighborhood, parking was a breeze, and close to everything. No complaints at all and plan to return the next time we visit the area. Thanks Tricia for a wonderful few days of R & R. My only suggestion is to perhaps add a guest book for people to leave notes of fun finds. I didn't notice one, but the place had so many cool objects to look at that I perhaps missed it. :) (Linda, Kevin, and Balzac)

Always a peaceful Stay

  • 4 of 5

I recommend this cottage for those not looking for super modern facilities, but more for those looking for peace and quiet and a serene atmosphere. This was my 4th or 5th trip and I love this cottage- has an L-shaped design so, even tho a studio, feels like there is a little more room. Definitely has a creative and artsy feeling- not a sterile atmosphere. Street parking is easy and so much available in the area. Tricia and her daughter are lovely. No dishwasher, so light cooking advised, but who wants to cook with the fantastic restaurants around in Pasadena?

Peaceful cottage

  • 4 of 5

A quaint cottage that is ideal for couples, set in a quiet neighbourhood. Beautiful outdoor space that is sheltered from the wind, and surrounded by gardens. Everything is fully stocked inside with everything to cook, do laundry and enjoy tv. It even has a grill for outdoor cooking. Parking is easy, free and available. There is a unheated pool ( you can pay to have it heated ) and a hot tub. The host is very friendly and helpful.
