Wow, just wow! This is the kind of place that Airbnb was made for. Secluded cottage behind an historic house in an historic neighborhood. If just for a romantic getaway, or a home base for exploring Southern Cal, this is a great spot.

I've stayed at Hoss and Cathy's place many times over the past few years and it's always my first choice when traveling to Pasadena. The guest house is comfortable, charming, clean, and peaceful. The grounds are beautiful and there's parking on site. It's also easy to use public transportation from there to get around Pasadena or LA. Hoss and Cathy are very responsive and accommodating. They always have some great food and drinks waiting for us when we arrive. My husband and I are vegan and they always provide exactly what we need to make our stay comfortable. The neighborhood is scenic, quiet, and great for walking and cycling. And it's close to restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. Everything you need is there and it feels like home.

This is the second time we live this lovely house at Pasadena within 3 month. The house is our first choice when we plan to visit Pasadena again and we are luck that we can book it again. Hoss and Cathy are enthusiastic and warm. They make us live here like at home. We also enjoy to chat with their neighborhoods when Hoss and Cathy invited them for a family gathering. Thanks again for Hoss's wine. We are looking forward to meet with you later.

It's a wonderful trip here. Hoss & Cathy make a warm living environment for a traveler. The room is very quite and comfort. There is a nice courtyard which plants and flowers are growing well and beautiful. The location is very convenient to access free way (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and very close to old Pasadena. I'm sure we will chose here again next trip to Pasadena.

This guest cottage located in a historic neighborhood, close to old town Pasadena was perfect for our long weekend stay. The bed was very comfortable, the living room is comfortable, the deck is very nice! Proximity to Old Town is a big bonus with plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. We also took a short drive up the hill for a hike in the mountains - beautiful. The surrounding neighborhood is filled with interesting architecture and makes for a nice walk as well. Cathy and Hoss provided some snacks and wine that were a great touch - thank you!
