Beautiful Historic Craftsman Home in Pasadena / near Huntington Library, Caltech, Occidental, Art Center, PCC

I am offering my comfortable historic Craftsman house for rent for short periods - usually from 3 days to 2 months.

Built in 1911, my house was included on tours for Pasadena Heritage's Craftsman Weekend in 2010, 2012 and 2014. It was also featured in the winter 2012 issue of American Bungalow magazine. It features a large living room with craftsman furnishings, formal dining room, three bedrooms - two with queen beds and one with twin trundle beds - one full bath upstairs and one half bath (sink and toilet) downstairs, office, den, large yard with pool and fruit trees. Close to universities, museums, shopping and restaurants. Ideal for one or two couples or a family. Especially convenient for Caltech, Occidental College, JPL and the Huntington Library.

Pasadena is a wonderful destination on its own, and a great base to explore the rest of the LA area. There are several vibrant shopping and dining areas right in the city, including historic Old Town Pasadena. The Norton Simon Museum, the Pasadena Museum of California Art and the Pacific Asia Museum are nearby. Hollywood and downtown LA are only 20 -30 minutes away by car or metro, and hiking in the San Gabriel Mountains is a 10 minute drive away.

The Huntington Library is just minutes from my home by car, or a short bike ride (I can usually provide bikes). I have rented my house several times to scholars coming to the Huntington on research fellowships and once to a USC researcher, and we've all enjoyed the experience. My house is available for dates when I can make arrangements to be away from home - please ask.

I also own a cozy rustic cabin in the mountains an hour and a half from Pasadena, which could be made available to visitors. See my second Sabbaticalhomes listing #76177 or more at www.vrbo.com/55803.

About Me
I retired from running the Sign Graphics Department at Disney Studios in 2007. Now I like to spend my time traveling and puttering around my Pasadena home and my nearby mountain cabin, which I rent out to weekend vacationers. I really like the person-to-person experience of staying in homes around the world and making visitors comfortable in mine.

Excellent exchange from key delivery to clean-up. Toni's home is not only a work of art but a great place to stay in Pasadena. Besides all kinds of information on her house and area, she left everything we could have wanted inside and out (beautiful yards). There were three of us, and we used two bedrooms; the house would easily accommodate four. We returned to San Francisco to find our house in perfect shape. Excellent Roslyn2 11/23/2017 1:26:00 PM
