Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

After driving half-way across the country to move to L.A., it was so nice to be welcomed by a fully furnished/stocked cottage. Me and my dog felt so welcome and comfortable; the neighborhood was cute, quiet and close to so many amenities. The owners worked with me to extend my stay numerous times as I searched for a permanent residence, which was such a relief to not have to bounce around multiple temporary places. The owners were always available if I needed anything, so kind and a pleasure to be around. I loved staying here!!

So Charming!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at The Studio. Kristin and Richard were very attentive and helpful, and the studio itself had everything we needed. It was both tastefully decorated and thoughtfully equipped. The Studio is small and cute but it was enough for my two little boys and me (with the addition of the roll-away bed). The location is fantastic and the property is beautiful. We loved the common space! I highly recommend The Studio, and I wouldn't hesitate to book The Cottage from Kristin and Richard if my husband decides to come next time. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Beautiful spot, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights in the studio. It is darling and includes everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and bathroom. Couch folds down to a comfortable bed which we made up with the high qualirpty bedding provided. We loved the shared outdoor area. So beautiful, quiet and comfortable. This place couldn't be closer to downtown South Pasadena, yet is in a quiet residential street. They provided us with a rollaway so that our grandson could spend the night with the us one night. Kristin and Richard are easy going and accommodating hosts. And they just bought a super duper gas/charcoal grill/smoker that they were using for the first time. We will definitely be back.
