About this listing
Our gracious 2 story home , with it's old world charm and beautiful grounds, provides an oasis from your daily activities. The Thyme Room has a twin bed and shared bathroom. Living and dining room spaces and welcoming grounds are available to our guests.
The Gold Line is 5 blocks away.
The Thyme room is an upstairs bedroom overlooking a beautiful view of the front garden. It has a comfortable twin bed, chest of drawers and a large desk. A walk-in closet is available for your storage needs. We provide a terry cloth robe, a hairdryer and mini-iron. The Thyme room is comfortable for 1 guest.
The room shares a common 3/4 bathroom and a beautifully appointed living room and dining room with a Batchelder fireplace... a bit of old Pasadena charm.
The dining room has a fridge, microwave and Keurig. Rhea provides large jars filled with homemade cookies and breakfast cereals. We invite you to pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea and relax in the comfy living room or enjoy the view on the bistro table outside the dining room or at one of the lovely seating areas in the back garden. It's magical in the evening on a warm night.
Rhea is a caterer by trade and she loves to cook. If you are interested in enjoying her home cooked Mediterranean food, please ask her. She would be more than happy to provide dinner for $10-$20 per guest.
The outdoor kitchen is fully stocked with plates, cutlery, BBQ, burners, fridge and ice maker. We would be thrilled if you used Henry's Taverna (what we call our outdoor kitchen space) and cut a few herbs from the herb garden to enhance your culinary creations .
The ping pong table is always available and Rhea can easily be coerced into a fun game.
Guests have access to the living and dining room and share the outside gardens including the outdoor kitchen.

Our family lives in the house , but mostly stays in the back of the house, while guests use the front part of the house.
We love Pasadena and all the things it offers. Great food, architecture, shopping, museums and schools.
The Gold line is a short walk away and buses are right across the street.

Unfortunately, our house is not suitable for pets or young children. The bedrooms are on the second floor without elevator access.
