This quiet and peaceful room is in a lovely house with a shady back patio. Our neighborhood is quiet & friendly, while being close to the bus & train for a quick trip into old town & the great restaurants of Pasadena! Breakfast is included :).

The space

This one-person or couple private room has access to a beautiful landscaped patio backyard. There is close access to the kitchen and bath, and the neighborhood is safe and quiet. Free wifi and street parking available, and within close distance to public transportation. The house is set in a lovely tree lined neighborhood and the house is a charming 1930's-style with hardwood floors and custom molding. I have a large collection of eclectic art that I have gathered during my travels, and which you will see through out the house. Nearby attractions include Old Town Pasadena as well as the beautiful Huntington Gardens and Descanso Gardens, the Norton Simon Museum, The Pacific Asia Museum and the California Museum of Art. Pasadena is also known for its wide variety of excellent restaurants. Host is flexible and accommodating, and is happy to provide directions and information about the area. This space is also available for film shoots, at the rate of $75/hour.

Guest access

Gusts have access to the whole house: kitchen, laundry room, living room, dining room, back patio and bbq.

Carolyn was a warm gracious and generous host. An international Australian harpist who has traveled widely and has a broad view of life. We shared breakfast and tea and discussion of life. A great place to stay to explore the mad world of LA. I hope our paths cross again maybe when she plays in England.

Carolyn is a wonderful host . Right from the moment of arrival she was a most attentive host . Her home is most beautiful , in a pristine area of Pasadena with the San Gabriel Mountains as a backdrop . It was wonderful , sitting in her garden , being serenaded by the Harp in the morning sun . Carolyn invited me to a performance at Union Station which was mind blowing ! Absolutely Fantastique ! Carolyn has become a true Friend Thank you again Carolyn !.

Carolyn's house is in a beautiful area. The room is private, with all the amenities you need, plus the kitchen. its comfortable, clean, and the vibe is warm and friendly. She has excellent maid service that comes in once a week who will also do your laundry and fold it for you, worthy of a gratuity. I give it five stars.

Nice "homey" environment in a quiet residential environment.

Carolyn's house was great! We went down for the Rose Parade and the location was terrific! We walked to the parade so didn't have to worry about traffic or anything else! The post parade float viewing was just around the corner and an easy walk away! The neighborhood was beautiful and very comfortable! Even though Carolyn was in Australia when we were there , she kept in constant contact with us! Lia was her replacement host and met us and was outstanding! She even offered us a ride to the parade! It was a great place to stay and made our experience so much better! Mareeba (the host cat) was so friendly and had the most contended purr! Well worth a stay!

Easy going and relaxed person. I love art and the arts, and of course music. I also love to meet new people and make new friends. My days are spent teaching the harp to private students who come to my studio, which is part of my house. I also practice the harp, play the harp …
