This is a quiet retreat, a home away from home. Exotic parrots, butterflies and hummingbirds are a part of the neighborhood. Swimming and working by the pool while viewing the mountains are my favorite things here. WIFI and desk in private room with Queen size bed. Very comfortable. Near Rose Parade and Rose Bowl. Also great location inside and by pool for filming or still photography. Inquire for day rate.
Join us for the unique Holidays in the hills of Pasadena, vibrant with the excitement of the world's largest parade, The Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl. The parade ends about 2 miles from the house and the Float Observation Area is also 2 miles away. The infamous Rose Bowl is 5 miles away. The Stealth Bomber flies over the pool before the parade and the Rose Bowl Game on January 1, 2017 providing a birds eye view of its magnificence. Please book early to secure reservations. Although the Pasadena winter temperature is slightly cool, we still are surrounded with red, yellow and pink roses and indigenous plants. Warm breezes during the day by the pool is refreshing by the new growth of lemons and avocados here, from the mini-grove and large private garden by the pool. Hummingbirds are in action. In this historical Pasadena home in the quiet Presidential neighborhood the bathroom is private, and the large private backyard has views of the surrounding San Gabriel Mountains. Hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails are 2 blocks away in Eaton Canyon. Wifi, indoors and poolside, very comfortable private bedroom for 2 and private bath. Five minutes from Old Town Pasadena and the Norton Museum, Huntington Gardens, Arboretum Botanical Gardens, Santa Anita Racetrack, historic Lucky Baldwin Ranch and Queen Anne Cottage. 20 minutes from Los Angeles. Gold Line Train nearby and bus stop at end of the street. Free parking. Ethnic Restaurants and the best ice cream shop in Pasadena two blocks away. The local neighborhood Farmers Market is filled with the excitement of music, organic vegetables, fruits, and breads each Saturday. Don't be surprised if you see the neighborhood family of wild Peacocks strutting the street or a flock of green and red exotic parrots flocking in the old Sycamore Tree in the front yard. They are a part of our local heritage.
Guest will have access to dining room, living room, private backyard with Wifi, and pool with swimming through mid-Fall.. The mountains and Eaton Canyon, two blocks away, and the waterfall flowing fully. Great for environmental portraits with golden colored desert background and mountains. . The trail at the top of Eaton Canyon continues to Canada and has spectacular views of the entire valley to the Pacific Ocean.

A continental breakfast is available each morning. We will help with directions, maps, and information about Pasadena and Los Angeles (and photography tips) to ensure you have an inside view during your visit.
Photojournalist / Filmmaker Travelled to many areas of the world. Like living in California a lot. Pasadena is noted for the largest parade in the world, Rose Parade that is coming up Jan. 1st. It ends a few blocks from our house. Then the Rose Bowl begins. The Phantom jets fly over the pool as the game begins. There a lot of history here, old architecture, and waterfalls and canyons like Eaton Canyon 2 blocks from the house. I like to hike in this area and visit the overlooks with views from Pasadena to the Pacific Ocean. The weather is almost always great for outdoor activities and photography. It is so quiet here you can become very close to nature, as close as the back yard. I love going to the international restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, museums, gardens, and Santa Anita Race Track for endless fun in our quiet and cultured community.
