Studio Retreat with Spa and Pool , in San Gabriel Mountains, near the Rose Bowl

Adults-only apartments in Altadena with spa tub
We haven’t been renting the studio since pandemic and have used it as a gym so know that there is a treadmill, recumbent bike, weight bench and weights that guests are welcome to use in the space. All guests must be fully vaccinated. Gorgeous studio/pool house. The studio is adjacent our pool and spa. Guests are welcome to use this area during their stay. The beautiful pool area right outside studio door has a deck with comfortable furniture and is very private from the main house. We do not use the spa during guests stay. Since the spa is connected to the pool it is not always hot. We heat the spa for two hours each day guests would like to use it, as available.
There is a fire pit.
We do not allow parties.
Primary guests must be at least 25 years old and verified by VRBO/HomeAway. And children need to be at least 12 years. Please be ready to show ID upon arrival.
The studio does not have a full kitchen (no sink, stovetop or oven). There is a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and a two burner cook top. Do not hesitate to ask for any other cooking items you may need. The sink in the bathroom is a utility sink, making doing dishes easier----think tiny house. We provide guests with paper goods and guests are welcome to leave dirty dishes for us to clean upon check out.

The pool warms up in the summer and is not heated year round. It is typically warm in the summer. Since the spa is attached to the pool it is not kept heated. We heat the spa for a two hours per days booked as guests request.
We do not rent the studio for private parties.
The pool is not fenced from the studio so may not be the best fit for young children.
We have a strict no pets policy.
The studio has a very comfortable queen bed which is in an alcove with dark curtains which provides privacy from the living area of the studio (see photos) and darkness for day sleepers. The comfortable couch has a pull out double bed.
Our property is long and narrow and overlooks Millard Canyon. It is located in a residential neighborhood (not a business district, as a hotel may be); therefore, we don't allow parties or noise after 10:00 pm.
Home is adjacent to the Angeles National Forest and hiking trails are right out the door. These trails a not crowded as trails on the east side of Altadena are. Many times--especially during the week you may have the whole beautiful mountain to yourself (see photos of hiking trial).
El Prieto Canyon right outside the door which are known as world-class mountain bike riding trails.
Large flat screen TV with cable and internet. The studio has a magnificent view to Catalina on a clear day or twinkly city views and overlooks beautiful Millard Canyon.
Altadena is in the foothills right above Pasadena--a short 15 minute drive, twenty minutes to downtown LA and 45 minutes to Santa Monica beach. You really feel like you are getting away from it all but are very close to anything you might need. Very comfortable for the extended stay traveler.
VRBO does not allow same day bookings. Please contact us directly if you'd like to same day book so we an arrange this.
JPL is 2 miles away, Cal Tech is close. This would be a nice place to stay if you are visiting either of those places. Ask about the availability of our special business traveler rate.
Come for a weekend retreat. A weekend spent in our studio could consist of coffee or tea pool side, hiking or world-class mountain biking on El Prieto trail right outside the studio door, a relaxing massage on the pool deck or inside the roomy studio (additional fee to masseuse) and a swim in the pool or a soak in the spa. Finish the evening with a barbecue and toasting marshmallows at the fire pit. It's a beautiful place to stay for a retreat.
Great option if your coming into town for the Rose Bowl games or parade. It's about a 5 mile drive.

5/5 Excellent

Restful oasis
Exactly what I needed... a peaceful, quiet, private sanctuary that was also close enough to where I wanted to go (Pasadena, and places in the valley).

5/5 Excellent

Cozy and quiet
Margaret was easy to communicate with and responded quickly to questions. The backyard and view were beautiful, wish I could have stayed longer. The kitchen doesn’t have a sink but there’s a kitchen type sink in the bathroom which worked out well. There’s very little traffic around the house so it felt very private. Can’t wait to go back

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful Getaway
We really enjoyed our stay here. Our host was very nice and helpful with everything we needed during our stay. The pool and spa were amazing! We ate almost every meal on the patio. Parking was off street right next to our apartment. We had more than enough space to spread out and get comfortable. The bed was super comfy. I hope we get to stay here again in the future!
