Charming Spanish Style Home on Hill

Our house is situated in the lively Eagle Rock area of L.A. between Pasadena & Glendale. We offer 2 bedrooms w/ a queen & a double bed, a spacious & bright 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. Be ready, also, for the furry love of our 3 nice cats, aquatic turtle, & our sweet little dog, all of whom will appreciate your care. Our diverse neighborhood is walkable & fun, with 3 good markets close-by, along with many restaurants, bars, coffee houses, craft beer cellars, boutiques, & specialty food shops. A 3-mile round-trip stroll takes you past many of these establishments, at the end of which you climb our short but steep hill back to the house. Pasadena is about 2 miles away, over the classic Colorado Street Bridge that takes you to the Norton Simon Museum of Art & bustling Old Town. Below the bridge lies the beautiful Rose Bowl, Aquatic Center, & Kidspace Museum. About 4 miles in the opposite direction you'll find downtown Glendale, with its 2 fabulous shopping malls & many restaurants. And Downtown Los Angeles--with its art, music, & theatre venues--is a 20-minute drive, or take the Gold Line Metro train from nearby Highland Park: Visit Chinatown, Little Tokyo, the Arts District, the Music Center (theaters & opera house), MOCA, the Eli Broad Museum, Grand Central Market, the sensationally redesigned Grant Park, & more.

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).
