Cute small cozy studio guest house with everything to make yourself at home. We have high speed WiFi strong signal Internet connection at 60 mbps download speed. We have streaming media television player with all the channels ex: ESPN, CNN, HBO.

The space

Very quiet and secluded hideaway back up near the forest near hiking trails and horse stables. A nice place to call home for a quick stay or a longer business trip.

Many people contact us and want to know how far of a drive it is to various places around the greater Los Angeles area. I always direct people to use Gooogle Maps. You can enter our zip code 91001 as the starting point and then enter your destination. The map will display how many miles and approximate drive time in minutes.

Here are some examples:

91001 to Santa Monica: 31 miles / 1 hour drive in traffic Friday afternoon at 3:00 p.m.

This is helpful if you are here for work or school and need to know how far away your destination is.

Also, our studio is small. It is a perfect retreat and hotel alternative. The dimesions are: 10 feet wide...and 30 feet long. Long but narrow. I liken it to being in a large RV... but stationary. :-)

Guest access

A key is provided and you have your own separate side entrance .... is your own private access to the space without bothering or disturbing anyone in the front house.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you would like...
I'm prompt in answering questions and inquires through email or phone; please just ask. If I'm not available when you check in, the house key will be placed in a designated key holder located at the front of the house. If I'm able to accommodate an early check-in or late check-out, of course I will do so. Please inquire.

Other things to note

Reserved parking for one car is on the curb directly in front of the house. Please do not park in the main driveway. It is for guests of the main front house. Guest parking is at the cross street Altadena Dr.

A bike can be provided for additional rental. Washer and dryer are available for use. Private patio and access to-from street is through a Private side entrance.

The unit is fully furnished and we provide towels, sheets, blankets, pillows and kitchen utensils etc. We provide enough consumables (toilet paper, paper towels, soap, dishwashing detergent and laundry detergent) to get our guests started, but do not supply consumables for the remainder of their stay.

I stayed at Chris's place for 4 months for an externship in Pasadena. Although small and simple, this studio was perfect for what I needed--basically a place to cook and sleep. Chris was a really great host. He made check-in easy, was available when I had questions, and reached out to check on me a few times during my stay. The place itself is located kind of off the beaten trail in a rural neighborhood. There are horses, donkeys, and roosters at the neighbor's house that make noise often but I got used to it. The studio is quite small, and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone planning to spend a large amount of time at home or working from home. But there is a full kitchen and a comfortable bed which makes it a good fit for traveling business people or busy students. I had a little trouble with a leaking sunlight during the rainy season, but Chris was quick to respond when I told him about the issue. Overall my stay was enjoyable and I would recommend it to others. P.S. The lemons on the tree outside are amazing! Take advantage!

The studio was perfect for one person. Chris provided all amenities I needed during my stay and even exceeded expectations by providing a small table to act as a computer desk. Chris' communication and flexibility were fantastic and made it easy to check in, make a change, and check out. He met me at the studio, walked me through and stayed in touch throughout. The location was perfect for a daily commute to Burbank. I would definitely stay at Chris' properties again in the future.

Excellent little place for a solo traveler. I stayed during an internship at JPL, and the place was extremely convienient to JPL. Chris was friendly and responsive to my occasional questions, and let me know when anything that might affect my stay was happening. The fresh lemons were a fantastic bonus!

Since joining Airbnb, it has been very rewarding meeting people from all over the world. I have been to a handful of countries and want to see more.
As a busy Dad with lots to do, I live about 2 hours away but come to town frequently for work. I consider myself a connected remote host. And in my limited free time, I like to stay active, play sports, go camping, play at the beach and teach my children to enjoy life by encouraging them to be happy and to always keep learning.
