Breakfast included. On-street parking included. Airbnb Superhost accommodation. Comfortable, queen-size bed in a lovely private room in our family home. Million-dollar neighbourhood - very walkable. Twin-size airbed can be added with advance arrangement.
Ideal for a business traveler, Huntington scholar, Caltech researcher or parents visiting a student. Great base for traveling nurses or tourists exploring Pasadena and greater Los Angeles.
Queen-size bed in sunny corner room. Twin air bed available for third guest by advance arrangement. Hardwood floors, full-length mirror, closet with lots of wooden hangers, window seat. Full bathroom is a few steps away. If someone else has booked our other room then the bathroom is shared. Free street parking for your car. Sheltered parking for your bicycle. Light housekeeping service available most Mondays. Free Wi-fi.
You will have access to our living room, dining room, and to the backyard. No access to the second floor or private family areas of the house. Store small amounts of food in the refrigerator/kitchen and make light use of the kitchen during kitchen hours (breakfast time and dinner time up until 9pm). For the BBQ, laundry facilities or piano please make arrangements with host.
We can provide almost any amenity you might need - from a snack to sunscreen to a discount code for the supermarket. I have an amazonFresh and amazon Prime Now membership for ordering free home delivery you can take advantage of. We take the local paper every morning so our guests can see what is on in Pasadena.
Interaction with guests
Host can share ideas for places to go and things to do in beautiful Pasadena, Los Angeles and surrounding areas. Can also provide lunches/dinners/snacks for purchase. If you don't want much interaction that's fine too, we can just say "hello" in passing. :)
Other things to note
Children under two are welcome in our home but they do "count" as an extra person and need to be included and paid for no matter what Airbnb's policy is. Only children I have given birth to are allowed to stay here for free.
ONLY reserved guests will be allowed to check in.
READ the entire listing, view all the pictures and ask any questions before booking.
AIRBNB prohibits third-party bookings, if you are not going to be staying here you can't make a reservation for anyone else under your personal account.
ANY stay over three weeks long will require a signed rental agreement.
ANYBODY who breaks rules may cause the party to forfeit the reservation plus the security deposit and leave immediately or may be fined $25 per occurrence and/or asked to leave at the host's discretion.
THE RESERVATION KILLERS
NO smoking in the house or anywhere on the property.
NO open flame or excessive noise on the property. I'll make an exception for birthday candles if you share cake.
NO unregistered guests, visitors or animals without prior written permission.
NO Guest/Visitor access to the second floor or areas marked "Private".
NO weapons of any kind are permitted on the property without prior written permission (e.g. If you are in town for a fencing match we can make allowances for your sabre when you make your reservation.) And I might ask to borrow it to open a bottle of champagne.
THE THINGS THAT COULD GET EXPENSIVE
NO food or drink (other than water) in the bedroom.
CHECK-IN times are by arrangement between 3PM and 10:00PM. $25 fee for check-ins before 3PM or after 10PM and only by prior arrangement. $50 fee for check-ins after midnight and only by prior arrangement.
PLEASE clean up after yourself in any shared area and keep luggage, shoes and wet towels off the furniture, bedspread, etc., thanks!
NO using the internet to download illegal or restricted material.
ETIQUETTE AND THE PRETTY PLEASES
WE are sorry but we can't accommodate any request to have your mail or packages delivered to our listing. And please don't use our address with your car rental company, etc. I am still getting carpool lane violation notices for a former guest and if I'm getting them, he is not.
PLEASE be considerate of our neighbors in all things and park by our house (there's lots of space) and not in front of theirs if you can. Please use our trash cans, not theirs, etc. And if you find you are filling up the kitchen trash can with takeout containers or whatever you get karma points for being a sweetie and taking out the trash.
PLEASE be judicious about laundry and shower/bath use in our time of drought. And, what the heck, energy too. California thanks you!
SURPRISINGLY I have to spell it out...please don't use the white towels to remove makeup or clean your shoes. I can provide colored washcloths or disposable (in trash can, not toilet) towelettes for makeup removal and old rags for your shoes.
AND please keep personal grooming to appropriate areas. No brushing teeth in our kitchen or clipping nails in our dining room, thanks!
From Dec 22, 2017 - Jan 03, 2018 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
