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.

Perfect spot for quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Location couldn't be better - convenient to downtown Pasadena, but surrounded by fruit trees on a quiet street. We stayed while attending a class in Pasadena, and the guest house provided the ideal spot to relax and process each evening. The back patio has a nice table for dining. Steve and Lily are ideal hosts - very welcoming, arrival instructions were clear, everything in the house was exactly as advertised. The kitchen had everything we needed, the house was clean, bed was very comfortable, and the fresh flowers that greeted us were a nice touch. Definitely will stay here again.

Great secluded home

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed here for about 17 days. It was perfect, very clean and had everything we needed while we were waiting to move into our new home. I called this our vacation home and would highly recommend it. Steve & Lily are wonderful.

Worked perfectly for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Great private little space, perfect for two of us. Many thoughtful details were present: fans, spare key, laundry basket, reading lights, etc. Spotlessly clean! Comfortable bed, quiet neighborhood, and super nice hosts. Guests with mobility issues might need assistance getting in and out of shower, but it is super clean and comfortable once you are in there. Easy drive to Pasadena activities. Patio was the perfect spot for us to host several of my family for an informal supper. Hope to stay here again when I visit my family in So Cal.

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Friendly and attentive hosts, comfortable cottage, quiet location, and nice amenities all make this a lovely place to stay in the Pasadena/Altadena area. There is easy parking, and the location is just minutes from the fwy, Pasadena, La Canada, and DTLA. Nearby hiking trails offer wonderful recreation options.
