About the property

Studio with separate sleeping alcove, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Gorgeous studio/pool house. The studio is adjacent our pool and spa. Guests are welcome to use this area during their stay. The beautiful pool area right outside studio door has a deck with comfortable furniture and is very private from the main house. We do use the pool at times in the summer, we attempt to coordinate our use with guest's. Please inquire about availability and price of booking private use of the pool during your stay. We do not use the spa during guests stay. Since the spa is connected to the pool it is not always hot. We heat the spa for two hours each day guests would like to use it.


There is a fire pit and gas barbecue.

We do not allow parties.

Primary guests must be at least 25 years old and verified by VRBO/HomeAway. Please be ready to show ID upon arrival.

The studio does not have a full kitchen (no sink, stovetop or oven). There is a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and a two burner cook top. Do not hesitate to ask for any other cooking items you may need. The sink in the bathroom is a utility sink, making doing dishes easier----think tiny house. We provide guests with paper goods and guests are welcome to leave dirty dishes for us to clean upon check out.

The pool warms up in the summer and is not heated year round. We would consider heating it for an additional fee in the Spring. Since the spa is attached to the pool it is not kept heated. We heat the spa for a two hours per days booked as guests request.

We do not rent the studio for private parties.

The pool is not fenced from the studio so may not be the best fit for young children.

We have a strict no pets policy.

The studio has a very comfortable queen bed which is in an alcove with dark curtains which provides privacy from the living area of the studio (see photos) and darkness for day sleepers. The comfortable couch has a pull out bed, we are happy to provide a blow up queen mattress for guests to use on the pull out couch.

Our property is long and narrow and overlooks Millard Canyon with the main house (our residence) up from the studio providing privacy for guests (and us). It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood (not a business district, as a hotel may be); therefore, we don't allow parties or noise after 10:00 pm.

Home is adjacent to the Angeles National Forest and hiking trails are right out the door. These trails a not crowded as trails on the east side of Altadena are. Many times--especially during the week you may have the whole beautiful mountain to yourself (see photos of hiking trial).

El Prieto Canyon right outside the door which are known as world-class mountain bike riding trails.

Large flat screen TV with cable and internet. The studio has a magnificent view to Catalina on a clear day or twinkly city views and overlooks beautiful Millard Canyon.

Altadena is in the foothills right above Pasadena--a short 15 minute drive, twenty minutes to downtown LA and 45 minutes to Santa Monica beach. You really feel like you are getting away from it all but are very close to anything you might need. Very comfortable for the extended stay traveler.

VRBO does not allow same day bookings. Please contact us directly if you'd like to same day book so we an arrange this.

JPL is 2 miles away, Cal Tech is close. This would be a nice place to stay if you are visiting either of those places. Ask about the availability of our special business traveler rate.

Come for a weekend retreat. A weekend spent in our studio could consist of coffee or tea pool side, hiking or world-class mountain biking on El Prieto trail right outside the studio door, a relaxing massage on the pool deck or inside the roomy studio (additional fee to masseuse) and a swim in the pool or a soak in the spa. Finish the evening with a barbecue and toasting marshmallows at the fire pit. It's a beautiful place to stay for a retreat.

Great option if your coming into town for the Rose Bowl games or parade. It's about a 5 mile drive.
