Inside this Craftsman house you'll find original hardwood flooring in the connected dining room and living room, a carpeted bedroom, tiled bathroom, and linoleum kitchen and laundry room. The upper level of the home is exclusively occupied by the owner. The kitchen, living room and laundry room are shared with the owner. The room is a nice large bedroom with walk-in closet which comes with a new queen bed, night stand and full size antique armoire. Your bathroom has a sink, toilet and shower. The shared area of the house includes a large, fully stocked kitchen with a refrigerator, oven/stove, and microwave; a laundry room with a refrigerator, treadmill, TV (with DirecTV) washer & dryer; living room with a large flat screen HD TV with Direct TV and DVR and fully functioning fireplace. There is a porch with a swing in the front yard and a large backyard with patio and furniture and BBQ. Parking is in a multiple vehicle carport with electronically operated garage door to alley and is fully fenced.
Please keep in mind that we live in an urban area in a house with original windows, so the noise of the neighborhood seeps in. This area will not be your top choice if you want absolute silence. I do provide earplugs for those people who are light sleepers.
The house is shared with the owner and a cat. Sorry, no animals or children accepted. This is a non-smoking house.
IMPORTANT: Please make sure to fill out your member information, including a picture, prior to submitting a request for a stay. This is a private home and for safety reasons we require FULL airbnb verification of guests prior to inquiry or booking. https://www.airbnb.com/help/article/450
Filming: I do not rent out for filming...ever.
We live in a lovely area of old homes just a short distance to the revitalized Old Town Pasadena area with tons of shops and restaurants and bars. It's just a couple of miles to the Rose Bowl, too.
There is a growing metro system in LA and surrounding areas but in general requires a car to get full use of sites and scenery.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
When I'm home, which isn't often, and if you wish to talk, then I love to interact with my guests. Otherwise I respect the privacy of guests. I am available 24 hours a day with any issues or questions you may have during your stay, typically by text if I am not at home.
Staying during the Rose Parade/Bowl activities? I will offer you websites and suggestions for events, and may have free tickets to float viewing post-parade.
For guests who like to eat fish, I do not allow cooking or re-heating of fish in the house itself due to the longevity of smells that it creates. I do have a propane grill outside that you are more than welcome to use - and can provide you with a fish cooking attachment for the grill.
For longer stay guests (over 5 days) I request that if you are in town to work that this takes place at a location outside of the house rather than working from the house full-time. Thank you!
3 Night minimum booking. No smoking. Please be neat and clean up after yourself in shared spaces. There are no guests allowed except for those agreed upon by the owner (2 maximum and no one under 18 years of age) including visiting children since there are many breakables. Please keep noise down after 11 p.m. on week nights. The house alarm is set whenever someone is not in the house. The garage door needs to be closed at all times, and turn off exterior lights upon entering the house. Housekeeper service takes place on Tuesday mornings starting at 8:15 a.m. and we need access to your bathroom and your bedroom by that point - the laundry room is accessed through the office space outside your bathroom. There is no street parking every night of the year from 2 - 6 a.m. without a paid permit, so off street is provided for any type of small car/sedan, station wagon or mini van - no SUV's, Explorers, or trucks please (these would require street parking). There is no cooking/reheating of fish inside the house - only outside on the bbq.
Professional, active, cheerful and love the arts. I am a big fan of travel and love to meet folks from all over the world. I'm a movie fanatic and really enjoy the smell of popcorn and the experience of a giant screen. With my children grown and on their own path, I've filled my life with friends, work, and entertainment. I'm a fan of clean homes and cluttered bookshelves. My life motto: Let's go do that! I truly love being an airbnb host.
