Charming Spanish Style Home on Hill

Our house is situated on a hill in the lively Eagle Rock area of L.A. between Pasadena & Glendale, near various community colleges, Occidental College, & Calif. Institute of Technology; USC is a half-hour drive, as are 2 Cal States. We offer 2 bedrooms w/ a queen & a double bed, a spacious living room, a very functional galley kitchen, a small comfy family/TV room with a view of our small valley & hills, & 2 outdoor decks with a BBQ grill. We have 3 nice cats & a sweet little dog; depending on length of exchange, we can bring our animals with us, or you can care for them with the help of our neighbors.

Our diverse neighborhood is walkable & fun with: - 3 good markets near-by - many restaurants, bars, coffee houses, craft beer cellars, boutiques, specialty food shops; a 3-mile round-trip stroll takes you past many of these. - Pasadena, about 2 miles away, features the Norton Simon Museum of Art, bustling Old Town, Huntington Library & Gardens, Cal Tech, Pacific Asia Museum, Pasadena Playhouse, The Noise Within theatre, the Rose Bowl, Aquatic Center, & Kidspace Museum. - Glendale, about 4 miles in the opposite direction, has 2 fabulous shopping malls & many restaurants. - Downtown Los Angeles, a 20-min. drive or train ride, harbors art, music, & theatre venues including MOCA, the Eli Broad Art Museum, & the Music Center with the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Mark Taper Forum, & Ahmanson Theatre; plus there's Chinatown, Little Tokyo, the Arts District, Grand Central Market, & the sensationally redesigned Grant Park.

About Me
I am now retired after teaching English at the California community colleges for 20 years. Because I have no current college email address, I am registered on this site as "non-academic," though I taught all levels of English Composition, as well as Critical Thinking with an emphasis on both academic Nonfiction & Literature. My husband & I live with our 3 crazy cats & lovable dog in L.A., & yes, we're more than prepared to care for your animals in any exchange! We can travel at virtually any time: We lived in Provence, France, in our youth, so we hope to return there at some point, & we try to visit New York City a couple times a year. We also intend to visit as many countries--especially major cities--as possible before we completely wear out! Fact is, we're very "young" & hip old people living in a totally funky-cool neighborhood--the home of Occidental College (aka Barry Obama's 1st university out of high school; trivia tidbit).
