My historic 1911 Craftsman home in Pasadena is available for rent from 3 days to one month, depending on my schedule. This is my primary home so I rent it out only occasionally when convenient.

The space
My historic Craftsman home was featured on a tour of "significant but less celebrated architects" for Pasadena Heritage's Craftsman Weekend 2010, and was on the main tour in October 2012. It was also featured in the winter 2012 issue of American Bungalow magazine. Perfect for one or two couples or a family, or a family reunion. Three bedrooms, one and a half baths, large living room, formal dining room, office, den, laundry porch. Craftsman furnishings throughout. Large yard with fruit trees and pool (pool is unheated but I can usually swim May to October). Two TVs, dvd player and wifi included.

Pasadena is a wonderful city in itself - full of great architecture, restaurants, shopping, museums - and a great base from which to visit the rest of LA. Minutes from shopping, theaters and restaurants in Old Town Pasadena. 3.6 miles from the Rose Bowl and 1.3 miles from the Rose Parade route. 7 miles from Santa Anita racetrack.

I usually rent my home at New Years for the Rose Bowl game and Rose Parade. Most summers I host guests for longer stays, often to academics doing research at the Huntington Library . I also do home exchanges all over the world and I rent my mountain cabin for weekend guests; I will do my best to make your stay comfortable and interesting.

Where you’ll be

Pasadena, California, United States

My home is one block from Pasadena's first historic district, Bungalow Heaven, for which I designed the historic signs. This is a lovely, quiet neighborhood with 100+ year old houses and tree-lined streets. A shopping street with restaurants and shops is a five minute walk from my house. The neighborhood is very safe and I have lovely neighbors.

I retired from Disney Studios in 2007 where I was a signpainter and graphic artist. After retirement from Disney I worked part-time for several years as a paralegal. I have always loved to travel. Back in the 60's and 70's I traveled overland from Europe to Asia twice; since then I've been lucky enough to spend time in various countries in Europe, Asia and all over the US, often through home exchanges, so I'm very familiar with sharing my home with others. I also own a cabin in the mountains near LA which I have been renting to weekend guests for 20 years. Both the home exchanges and home rentals have enhanced my trust in humanity; I've met the nicest, most interesting people this way. "Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God"...K.
