On tiny hidden canyon with 180 view of nature, nestled up against mountains, this is a beautiful retreat. One block from major hiking trails, the only sounds are from the myriad birds welcoming you! Old Pasadena 8 min away.
I keep the house very neat and clean, and expect the kitchen + house to be left as you find it. If you break, nick or scratch something please just let me know.
I always clear half a shelf in the fridge and have a tray for you to put dry goods. Please do not venture into my food without asking.
If you happen to be here on a day that the cleaning ladies are here (every other Friday so not extremely likely), two or three of them descent upon the house in a whirlwind for about three hours so it is neither peaceful not convenient. If you book on a Friday I usually remember to warn. They will need to get in the guest room to do deep cleaning of the room, but you can put things in closet while they are here.
Parking is about 15-20 yards from house but you can drop off and then park.
I'm a writer and a corporate trainer. I work from home so a peaceful home is key to me. Everyone who visits says they feel it's the oasis I feel it is. I share it with my furry munchkins Lucy and Tallulah, who are incredibly sweet Coton de Tulears, which is a hypo-allergenic breed for those who have allergies. They won't affect your nose, only charm your heart! This is one of those houses that begs visitors. I have lots of parties and dinners, but I keep hearing such great things about airbnb I thought it's a perfect match. When I travel the world I try to stay in B&Bs when I can because it kicks travel up a notch when staying with locals who want to share their worlds.
