About Me
My husband and I recently retired; I was a divorce mediator and he was a professor. We enjoy the outdoors and travel world-wide, including repeat visits to West Africa, where I was a Peace Corps volunteer years ago. (And now there are grandchildren to visit as well!) Our home in Pasadena is a wonderful refuge! -- we hope that others will enjoy it when we are away.

I rented this quaint home for 6 months between mid-June and mid-December 2018. It is a very comfortable, older home in a wonderful neighborhood. The surroundings are peaceful and quite beautiful, and the neighbors are exceptional. The owners are very accommodating and responsive to any and all concerns. As a single occupant, I found the space much more than I needed. I would think 3-4 people would be comfortable. I would highly recommend the property. Excellent Jim T 11/1/2018 11:15:00 AM
My husband and I rented here for 3 months during the winter and found the house very comfortable. All is as described in the listing, with lots of books and folk art, a wonderfully equipped kitchen, pleasant side patio, useful office space, front plantings, and room for guests. Pam and Steve are responsive and reliable owners. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood, not close to downtown, but a short drive to everything. There are a few grocery stores and an excellent coffee shop within walking distance, as well as casual eating places. We had a very happy stay with no problems. Excellent frequent renter 1/6/2017 8:16:00 PM
We have stayed at this wonderful home several times, and now it is newly-air-conditioned -- a real plus. Pam and Steve are great hosts -- very responsive and helpful. The house is very comfortable, and the photos accurately reflect the various rooms and furnishings. We love to cook, and the kitchen is incredibly well-stocked with everything a cook could ask for. The living room and den/TV room are both spacious and comfortable, and it's nice to have two separate hang-out rooms. Beds are also very comfortable. The neighborhood and location is great— very quiet, but close enough to everything you need. Their home is a great value and I know we’ll return. Excellent Joan 11/8/2016 12:49:00 PM
