Charming guest house 1 bd 1 bth + office in South Pasadena

Adorable, light-filled cottage on a quiet cul-de-sac in South Pasadena. It is suitable for one person, a couple, or a couple with a baby. We prefer short- or medium-term rental to academics.

Extremely charming 1920s architecture, 700 sq ft, recently fully rebuilt and renovated with new design, new hardwood floors, new central air conditioning/heat, new windows, new paint, and brand new furniture. Small kitchen with original period tile, bathroom, living/dining room, bedroom, and small office (comfortable for use as a separate bedroom for baby or small child; you would need to bring the travel crib). Multiple windows in every room including casement windows and a huge French door in the living room, providing amazing light throughout the house. Wi-fi, central air/heat, private patio with a table and umbrella for outdoor meals, access to shared grill and to larger patio. Easy on street parking (the city requires an overnight parking permit for all cars, $3/night, can be easily purchased online). Super safe neighborhood.

Great location: two blocks from gorgeous Garfield Park (tennis courts, playground, picnicking), 4 blocks from gourmet supermarket, 5 mins. from 110 freeway. Walking distance to shopping, cafes, farmers’ market, downtown South Pas, Gold Line rail. Distances:

1 mile to Meridian Gold Line station
3 miles to Cal Tech
3.5 miles to Huntington Library
7 miles to JPL (15-min. drive)
10 miles to downtown LA

$2500/ month + $200 average utilities + $75 cleaning service every two weeks and after your departure.
No smokers; pets; parties. Quiet after 10pm.

Please note: This guest house is behind our main house, separated by the garage and backyard. The entrance from the street is shared but the setting is very private, with landscaping that hides each house from the other. There are stairs so not wheelchair accessible. There is no clothes washer or dryer in the guest house but there is a laundromat very close by. House cleaner available for roughly $75/week; for rentals longer than two weeks we require the cleaning every two weeks minimum.
