Local Golf Courses:

Brookside Golf Club (10 minutes) Location is convenient to the city near local attractions Great for walkers playing multiple courses Challenges include bunkers undulating greens narrow fairways Great for drinks patio dining watching the game.

Scholl Canyon Golf & Tennis Club. It's an executive, so there are only a couple of chances to use your woods, but there are still some very challenging holes. The views of downtown LA are awesome; when it's clear you can see Catalina Island. The course is half a step above a par 3 course, but a great value.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2002

Why Owner/Manager chose North Arroyo

Born & raised in beautiful Pasadena, California. I am so very Blessed to call this house my home. Located in a very sought after area in Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley. Sometimes I pinch myself to make sure it is not a dream. I hear the sound of birds not the sound of cars. I do not have neighbors so close they can peer inside, that is except for maybe Ricky the raccoon. I look out onto one of the oldest private golf courses in So. Cal.. It is very common to see deer roaming about and especially wonderful when you see a new born doe. Casa de Olivia is nestled in a valley surrounded by rolling hills and lush hillsides. The drive up is similar to a tree lined country road in Europe, with the San Gabriel mountains as a backdrop.

What makes this house unique

Pasadena's weather is in a word, perfect. The average daily temperature is a beautiful 76 degrees making it the perfect place to visit year round. Of course summers are hotter and winter does not always provide swimming-comfortable weather, but in general it doesn't get much better than this.

Football fan or not, the Rose Bowl is without a doubt, the major event in Pasadena. Back in 1902, the very youth of California, the Tournament of Roses wanted to spice up their festival with a football game. The rise of interest in football prompted the construction of a grand stadium. The original was built to hold 57,000 people and Pasadena was its home. In 1923 the very first Rose Bowl took place here.

Centrally located to everything you would want on a vacation. You can go snow skiing and water skiing all in the same day. Certain times of the year Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead can still have snow while the temps at the beach can be beautiful for jet skiing.

Tranquil retreat close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for some serenity, this is your place. The suite is well appointed (what else would you expect from a host is also an interior decorator?) and super comfortable. The patio that is directly accessible from both bedrooms features a hillside view that was ablaze with colorful flowers during our stay. It also features a calming fountain that our daughter loved. The beds provided sound sleep (where did those sheets come from?) and, again, my daughter loved them - calling it her "princess bed" and not wanting to get out of it in the morning. We didn't use the pool, but it looked great and the view from that side of the house is of a lovely golf course. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet setting with privacy. Olivia is a wonderful, welcoming host who provided us with a great stay. Bravo!

Owner's Response: Dear Fox family, I am so blessed to have had the pleasure of such wonderful guest. I cannot express enough my appreciation for your beautifully articulated words of kindness. It brings me such delight to know that you have enjoyed your stay. Well! I must say that only a princess bed would be suitable for such a beautiful, intelligent & charming little princess. I am so happy that I was able to accommodate such a bundle of joy. Hope to see you again soon. Many thanks...

Beautiful and serene

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Olivia even though our trip was cut short by a family emergency. Olivia is such a gracious and caring hostess who goes out of her way to make the stay enjoyable. The beds and pillows were divine, the rooms clean, comfortable and well-appointed.

We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Pasadena!

5-Stars in quiet neighborhood with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were so grateful to have this quiet oasis available for our family to stay while in the LA area. It fit our family of four quite comfortably, with plenty of space indoors and many little outdoor spaces as well. My kids fell in love with Jasper, the tiny four-legged Jr. Ambassador. Olivia’s decorative touches, thoughtful preparation, and delightful disposition made this a truly 5-Star experience. I can’t think of another place I’d prefer to stay when we return to the area. Many thanks!

Beautiful and Relaxing Oasis in th Hills of Pasadena

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at this property for 10 days. Olivia and Justin were so accommodating and gracious hosts and went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable. The two bedroom suite is beautifully decorated and has a gorgeous private patio. We also enjoyed the use of the fabulous pool area and fire pit overlooking a gorgeous golf course in the hills of Pasadena. Uber and Lyft we are readily accessibleto and the short trip into Pasadena is very quick from the house. We could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable stay at this property. I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the Burbank, Glendale or Pasadena areas.

This little space is beautiful, inside and out. Can’t beat the view!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Olivia’s was such a joy! First, she is delightful. Amazingly flexible, welcoming, warm and gracious. And next, her place is really beautiful! And so comfortable! We wanted a quiet, peaceful get away for the long weekend, and we were not disappointed! The view is incredible from this hilltop top paradise, we saw the most amazing sunsets here. The beds are perfectly comfortable! The bathroom, an amazing blend of art and luxury. Reading was delightful, while sitting on the outdoor sofa, next to a babbling fountain. The sound of the water, coupled with the gentle light through the leaves of the surrounding trees creates an environment of calm and focus. It was exactly what we were hoping for, and we absolutely look forward to visiting again!
