About Herbie Simmons

My motto is simple. Live your dreams!!

"Every dream can be accomplished if you believe" - Herbie

Herbie Simmons purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Herbie Simmons chose Los Angeles area

It's in the perfect location and natural sitting. You will see a wood pecker, raccoon, skunk, etc.. It sits in the rear on a large lot with orange trees, large pool and mountain views, plenty of yard space for those who are traveling with small to medium pets.

What makes this cottage unique

It's safe and you do not even have to lock your doors. Wifi and Cable and also pet friendly: Please note: All friendly and well trained pets are welcomed with an additional pet fee of $85 per pet.

*Please: Do not allow pets to sleep on furniture, but bring your own pet bedding and there are designated areas for pets to use the bathroom in front of the home but not on the green grass as the acid from dog urine quickly yellows and kills the grass and it is mandatory that you clean up your doggies poo-poo.

Cozy. quiet and cute!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful place to call home for 10 days! At the foothills of the LA National Forest, yet only minutes from the shops and culture of Pasadena and a 30'ish minute drive to LA, it was the perfect blend of urban/suburban living. Overlooking a beautiful pool and landscaped yard, this cozy cottage has privacy despite its close proximity to the main house. The accomodations were sparkling clean, the bed (and sofabed) extremely comfotable and we had all the items needed to feel at "home" away from home. My only request - a couple of wineglasses next time, Herbie! I loved every minute of my vacation in this adorable place - despite the record-breaking rains that drenched us for most of the stay. I will look forward to my next visit and thank Herbie and his family for sharing his lovely place with us!

Clean, Cozy, Quiet, Equipped, Private Cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! As soon as I walked in I knew I was going to enjoy my stay. Herbie's place is maintained so well including a kitchen and all the amenities needed for a more-than-comfortable stay. It truly is clean, quiet, private and cozy. And the residential location is ideal. Herbie is very accommodating and communicative. On top of all that, the wi-fi is xlnt. I look forward to staying here again on my next return to L.A.. If you choose to stay here, you will not be disappointed. ~Thanks Herbie~

Nice stay in Pasadena

  • 4 of 5

It's a small but efficient little pool house nestled in Alta Dena. Pictures reflect accomo. Fully working kitchen etc., double sized bed it can be a little tricky to get the temperature right in winter and misses a couch but I'm sure it'd be awesome in the summer, especially with the gorgeous pool right outside. Herbie is a very accommodating host and does some interesting art, also on display in the house.
