About this listing
4-Bedroom Storybook Tudor home with spacious backyard in the heart of South Pasadena. Perfect for a big family, business or pleasure travelers looking for somewhere close to Downtown LA. Walk to Trader Joes, restaurants and the Gold Line train.
Finding a large lovely home with 3 or more bedrooms in a NICE neighborhood is hard to find. Many of the guests who have stayed here were in town for weddings and family reunions and were looking for an alternative to a hotel so they could all be together in a relaxing and private environment. Other guests have been groups of friends converging together from different parts of the world for events at Caltech, JPL, and the Rose Parade.
Interaction with Guests
I will be close by and available to assist you with anything related to the house!
Location Scouts: I do NOT rent my home for ANY type of film or television shoots through Airbnb.
The house is on a historic tree-lined street in a residential part of South Pasadena. If you love architecture and history, this is the place for you.
South Pasadena is a lush, quiet neighborhood that is central to almost everything in Los Angeles.
We are just off the 110 Freeway which gets you to downtown LA in 15 minutes. Silver Lake takes 20 minutes. Hollywood takes 25 minutes. Pasadena and the 134/210 Freeway are under 10 minutes away.
Without a car, no problem! You'll be able to walk to Trader Joes on the corner and to the Mission Street shops in downtown South Pasadena.
It's a 6 minute walk to the Gold Line train which runs from Pasadena & South Pasadena, to Chinatown, Union Station, and Little Tokyo. The train is part of the metro rail network that goes almost anywhere in Los Angeles.
A quick 10 minute ride downtown will take you to the hottest new restaurants and bars in LA, Dodger Stadium, Staples Center (for the Lakers, Clippers and Kings) as well as more shopping and dining.
Or take the train the other way to Old Town Pasadena (home of the Rose Parade!) for more top-notch restaurants and shops.
Other Things to Note
There is a tenant (an academic/researcher) who lives in a guest house at the back of the property. He enters and exits the property through a locked side gate and does not have access to the main house.
Parking - You can easily park two vehicles in the driveway. Just don't block the sidewalk with a vehicle because people walk around a lot in our neighborhood. You can also park cars on the street all day, but from 2am-6am an overnight pass is required. You can easily get 1-day overnight passes ($2) at the Police Department located at 1422 Mission Street from a kiosk.
Our black cat Lucy lives on the property. She is predominantly an outside cat. But she is boarded when Airbnb guests stay unless you request for her around (kids love her). She is shorthair, has no fleas (Advantage), and is as sweet as sugar.
Absolutely 8 guests maximum including children of any age. This is NOT a party house. Please be considerate of my neighbors on all sides by not being loud at night past 10pm. They know to text me immediately if they are disturbed. My family is so grateful to have this wonderful home and we are happy to share it with other respectful families and travelers to also enjoy.
Enjoy Apple TV, Netflix, Xbox 360 game console, and over-the-air digital stations on the flat screen TV. (note: no cable TV).
About the Host, Jaime
Internet professional, college professor, mom, foodie, born in Hollywood, spent my adult life in NY. I tend to travel once a month for business to New York and San Francisco. I like things to be clean, nice and peaceful. Unless of course I'm seeing some weird obscure band play live, and in that case I like noise and chaos.
