Brand new suite in my mid-century modern home created just for you -- with all new amenities. My home is set back off the street on a canyon so it's super peaceful. You have your own entrance at the back of the house which opens to your lovely sitting room. Down the hall is peaceful bedroom and the lovely bathroom invites you to relax in a hot bath. Near several great hiking trails. Convenient to Old Town Pasadena, Rose Bowl, JPL,
Caltech and perfect for Downtown LA business.

The space
Your suite is connected to my home -- we share walls -- but we are completely separate and you never have to interact with me! I have dogs so you may hear barking from time to time.

We have a lot of wildlife up here so they bark when they see the neighborhood fauna --coyotes, deer, bear (don't worry only at night and never interested in humans!), peacocks (you will likely see them if you are driving or walking in the afternoon), etc. You will hear the peacocks and a million other kinds of birds, including owls at night!

There is one QUEEN bed, but I can put a queen blow up mattress in the sitting room if you have one or two more people joining your party!

Kitchen -- The unit does not have a full kitchen as you will see from listing details but if you aren't looking to cook during this vacation, and just want to warm up in the microwave or store in the fridge, you are good to go. There is a Keurig coffee maker and electric kettle so you can make coffee and tea, and there is a hot and cold water dispenser.

Smart TV -- The TV in the sitting room is logged into my Amazon Prime, but you can log into your Netflix (I actually don't have Netflix -- I know the last holdout! LOL!)

Internet -- The network and password are conveniently located in a frame on the little dining table.

Temperature -- We share the same "ecosystem" - I have a NEST thermostat which I control from my phone because it's located in your area. WARNING: In the summer I keep it cool when it's hot -- average between 72 and 74. If that's too cool for you and you will be keeping all the windows open to heat the unit, that will be wasting energy so this rental is probably not a good fit. In the winter, I keep it fairly cool -- around average 68-70, I think. There is a space heater and a fan in your closet if you are cold or warm. There are also extra blankets in the closet.

Hall Light -- Speaking of "shared ecosystem" - your hall light switch and my hall light switch control each other. I rarely turn on the light when guests are here but sometimes I have to, so if you see it go on or off, please forgive me, it will just be a minute, I promise!

Exercise -- Also in the bedroom closet is a little exercise basket -- yoga mat, roller and a couple weights. There are plenty of local yoga and exercise studios within 10 minutes as well. Just google your preference.

Bathroom -- In the bathroom, the toiletries you see (and under the sink as well) are for your use so help yourself, just be mindful of the other people that may follow your stay so try not to take these home. ;)

No Smoking -- There is no smoking in the house or on the immediate property. If you are a smoker, another listing will probably be more ideal for you.

Gardener -- The gardener comes every other week on Saturdays around 9:30 a.m. There will be brief noise at that time -- but they are in and out pretty darn fast. And, again it's every other week.

Check-in/Check-out -- Check-ins are welcome anytime AFTER 4 p.m. Please check-out by 11 a.m. If you wish an early check-in or a late check-out, just ask. I just can't always accommodate because the turnover time is fairly brief depending on my schedule. So, please don't be upset if I have to say no.

Check-In -- If you wish for me to greet you upon your arrival to show you around, you'll need to let me know 24 hours ahead. I will do my best to accommodate you. Otherwise, you will have the code for the Nest lock on the door for super easy access! That means late check-ins are also a non-issue! And you can't lose the key! Ha ha! But if you arrive after 9 p.m., please know that I will not want to go back-and-forth on last minute needs/requests.

Check-Out -- The ONLY thing I ask is that you throw the used towels on the bathroom floor. That's it! Easy peasy!

Guest Responsibilities -- Only registered guests are permitted. If you wish to have a visitor, just ask! Just let me know when and how many visitors and I'll let you know asap if that works for me or not.

Guest access
You are in your own little suite. The entrance opens to the sitting room with TV, kitchen amenities, table and couch. Bedroom and bathroom are just steps away!

Other things to note
In the closet, there are:

1. Extra pillows
2. Shelves, baskets and hangers for your clothes.
3. A workout basket -- yoga mat, yoga block, a foam roller and two 8 lb. weights

Altadena, California, United States

So much great hiking -- literally in every direction there is great hiking. Old Town Pasadena is literally due south of the house. Huntington Gardens and Descanso Gardens are each within about 15 minutes from the house. So many great restaurants within 10 minutes of the house. Local coffee spots are awesome. Lincoln Restaurant just down the road is a gem. Altadena is a very quiet town.

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.

During your stay
You don't ever have to see me. I work in my house and work long hours so I'm pretty busy. My personal style when I rent Airbnbs (which I do a lot because I travel a lot) is to not interact much with hosts, so that's pretty much my style as a host too. I want it to be super peaceful for you.

I travel a lot too, so there will be times that I will have a house sitter taking care of my dogs. A friend just down the street will be attending to any needs of your suite.
