Come explore Pasadena, the City of Roses.
Located in the hills above downtown Pasadena is our character 1920's Spanish style home. Walking distance to hiking, restaurants, shopping and the Gold Line Metro system.
One hour or less drive to beaches, 15 minutes to downtown LA, not far from skiing and other mountain sports.
If it's Rose Parade time, we're walking distance (approx. 2 miles)! Leave the car and take a downhill stroll to watch the parade. Holiday rates apply.
The house is home to myself, my partner Mark and my 3 boys.
We know Pasadena well and are happy to give you referrals, directions and insight. We appreciate family, your children are more than welcome here. There are two very friendly cats that live in the house.
We enjoy company and camaraderie if you so desire but are happy to give you privacy as well.
My boys and I are a lively bunch, if you're uptight this probably isn't the place for you. Think.....sounds of children (good & bad) , music, laughter..
I keep a neat house but I also chase after 3 boys. It's clean but not perfect. See uptight above.
We look forward to meeting you!
Private when the kids stay with their father every other weekend.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as desired.
Historic homes, lovely tree lined streets, this is a wonderful family friendly neighborhood. There's a mini mart 2 blocks from our house for needed goodies. They have tacos that are out of this world there. A new, super hip coffee house/cafe Lavender & Honey, just moved in 3 blocks down from us. A wonderful spot to have your morning coffee & pastry or a wonderful lunch.
Great area to stroll through with a grand view of the mountains towering above you.
Many bus stops nearby and a 2 mile walk to metro rail.

The neighborhood was great, beautiful, lots of street parking and very safe. Cynthia was a great host. Or room was clean, there were clean towels in the bathroom and the house was very cozy. Cynthia let us have free use of the kitchen, which was great because we needed to do some baking for the dinner we came out to be a part of. Thanks for everything, Cynthia!
Dear Cynthia, sorry to write this Review so late as Bob goes to school and gets sick, his father comes...... I have been busy until now.
This is the first time I use Airbnb, which is a wonderful experience for me. I spent one week with Bob in this warm and merry house. I didn't believe times flied so quickly when we had to leave.
Dear Cynthia, thanks for the assistance for me and Bob, answering my email in a warm way and call for me so many times. I felt at home when I stayed here. You are not only like a beautiful and charming sister, but also a mother full of love, which adores me deeply.
Here I want to give the warmest applauses to the 3 unprecedentedly lovely brothers who have been around Bob. Each was reluctant to say goodbye at the last moment and please contact me when you come to Shanghai.
I like the comfortable bed the most in the room, which I didn't want to leave during several jet-lag days.
Thank you, Cynthia and look forward to see you in the near future.
Cynthia was very welcoming to me when I arrived. While being busy with her children she communicated well and left the house open with nice aroma candles and everything well kept. She had the kids quiet in the morning to not wake me up early.
Very sweet family to stay with. Cute house. Nice neighborhood and 11 min to Pasadena downtown by car.
This was the most pleasant experience we could have had. A beautiful home and comfortable room. Cynthia was very accommodating and allowed much privacy. A nurturing environment for her 3 children was the primary ambience. This is a special host with a special home, conveniently located with easy street parking in a pleasant neighborhood.
Cynthia was such a great host! She was very generous and very easy to talk to! My friend and I booked our stay just hours before, and were thankful thankful that Cynthia welcomed us into her home!
It was a very vibrant house and the neighborhood was beautiful!
Staying here for our first AirBnB trip definitely sets our bar high. We couldn't help but recommend staying here!
Cynthia was friendly and welcoming from the moment we met. She introduced me to her kids and showed me around the house, providing details based on other guests' experience. The bed was comfortable and the overall atmosphere was cozy. The house is very charming. I didn't stay long due to my schedule, but I was happy with my experience.
Cynthia has a lovely home and family! They are situated in a beautiful neighborhood in Pasadena. It feels very safe and is enchanting to walk in, even at night. It was easy to make the short drive everywhere I needed to get to from her home. She and her housemate and kids are very friendly and welcoming. She did a great job describing the experience on airbnb!
