I had a great stay with Lia and Garry. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, to provide me with useful information for getting around, and were so generous in their provisions and recommendations. The room was really comfortable and had a lovely view, the house …

Thank you, Angus, for being such a delightful guest. And thanks for your kind private message -- "Thank you so much Lia. I had a great stay with you. As I said, it was easily the best air bnb experience I've had. And you were easily the most friendly and generous host that I've had." It is easy to be a good host when I have such courteous and friendly guests such as you! I hope you will have reason to come back to Pasadena.

I had a great month in Lia's beautiful house. I enjoyed my private bathroom and quiet bedroom as well as the beautiful neighborhood, which was perfect for jogging. Lia thoughtfully stocked the guest fridge with yogurt, milk, and eggs and also provided cereal and fruit, so that wa…

Response from Lia + Garry:
Hi Dianne, We enjoyed having you as our guest and are glad you enjoyed our neighborhood, with its tree-lined streets and mountain views, plus easy access via Metro to Old Pasadena and Downtown LA, etc. ... The WiFi issues are the fault of Charter Cable, not anything we can control. We sometimes experience fluctuations in the cable service even though we pay for high speed, business (not residential) service which is supposed provide the best speed and reliability. There is no competition in cable providers, so we're stuck with Charter despite their sometimes iffy service. We hope that this will not deter you from returning to stay with us if you are ever back at the Huntington.
