In addition to the main house, the villa has a detached studio with kitchenette and bathroom laundry patio and private entance at the rear of the property. This studio is also available on an "as-needed" basis if you need the extra space for a larger group or family. (For an additional nominal fee)

The studio is considered occupied at all times as it is available for rent to my guests so you may see them but know they walk through the side yard and do not come into the main house.

Interaction with guests

I'm prompt in answering questions and inquires through email or phone; please just ask. If I'm not available when you check in, you can enter the house by pressing the electronic secret code on the front keyless keypad on the front door. See pictures.

If I'm able to accommodate an early check-in or late check-out, of course I will do so. Please inquire. Mostly this depends on the available time for the housekeeper to finish.

I also have an assistant who can handle any issues that come up.

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.

Chris's place was truly a home away from home. It came equipped with all the linens, kitchenware, and comforts you could possibly need to stay a week. The location was 5 minutes to the freeway, 10 minutes to Pasadena, and 45 minutes to LAX. The view was gorgeous, the street was quiet, and the house was clean and well-designed for guests. I'd gladly stay again!

This place was great. It fit our needs perfectly. It feels spacious and we loved having a private backyard. The house is really well placed for taking walks or bike rides which we took full advantage of. Supermarkets and restaurants are all within a couple of miles (there is even a small shop within walking distance if you need anything in a hurry). The neighborhood is safe and family friendly and it was a pleasure to see the horses pass in front of the house on the way to the trails at the end of the road. I highly recommend Chris's house, just don't take it when I need it next time!

Chris was a perfect host. I appreciate human nature of Chris. And Rancho Villa was the splendid place that could relax very much. I recommend it to people of the world.

Overall, we liked staying here and were comfortable. The neighbourhood feels very rural with all the horses and chickens. It's near some great hiking. The house is spacious and fairly well equipped. The kitchen has most of the basics, though it could have more dishes and eating utensils. The floors in the house were not as clean as they could have been. We have a small child who spends a lot of time of the floor so it may have been more apparent to us. It was nice that the house had a vacuum, mop and broom so we could take care of cleaning the floors ourselves. The kitchen and linens, on the other hand, looked new and were clean. Chris was good as a host. He was responsive without being overbearing. We would stay here again.

Terrific house. Very private at the end of a dead end street at the foot of the mountains yet minutes away from the freeway. Really spacious for 2-3 people. A home away from home. Chris was a great remote host. Would stay here again!

We appreciated that Chris came all the way up from San Diego to welcome us to our stay in Altadena. He was also quickly responsive to issues with the TV/Cable Co. The house was well furnished, the neighborhood was quiet and convenient to freeways and stores. Thanks Chris for our great stay while in Altadena. We look forward to booking your place for future stays in the area.

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.
