This historic 3 bdrm, 2 bath home is located in beautiful South Pasadena; it's centrally located, less than 5 minutes to the 110, 210 and 134 freeways. There's a large back yard & patio for guests to enjoy California's wonderful climate year-round! The house is located on a busy street, but the entire property is completely fenced-in, adding security and cutting down on any traffic noise. There's lots of room to spread out, with a private space to be found for everyone.

The space

This is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home with an extra outdoor shower. The family room has a sectional couch and an 85" plasma TV. There is a large backyard and a patio with plenty of seating, a grill, a tree house, a 5-person jacuzzi, and an outdoor shower with hot water. The beds in the house follow: one king (upstairs bedroom), one queen (downstairs bedroom), one full (upstairs bedroom), one twin (family room), one twin rollaway, and one queen air bed. The home comfortably sleeps 7-10. As an added security measure, there are security cameras around the outside of the home (but certainly not inside).

Guest access

The Rose Bowl Parade floats pass by right in front of the house on the evening of New Year's Eve. Join the neighborhood as they line the street and watch the floats pass by as they queue up for the Rose Bowl Parade that starts at 8 AM on New Year's Day. Guests will have full access to the entire house and yards.

Interaction with guests

I will be there to check guests in and out and answer questions, trouble-shoot, etc.

Other things to note

The Norton Simon Museum is about a 15-minute walk away. The Rose Bowl headquarters is a 10-minute walk away. The Rose Bowl Parade passes right in front of the house on the night of every New Year's Eve as the floats head for Orange Grove Boulevard to line-up for the Rose Bowl Parade on New Year's morning. Join the neighborhood on New Year's Eve as everyone lines the street to get a first-hand glimpse of the floats as they pass by on their way to the Rose Bowl Parade queue on New Year's morning. Lots of restaurants close-by on Mission Street and plenty of shopping and restaurants on Colorado Blvd/Old Town.

I'm glad that you and your group got to enjoy the back yard. I love hanging out back there, especially at night with a glass of wine, next to the fire pit!

Debora's place was outstanding! My colleagues and I were in town for work and Debora's house was perfect. Clean, comfortable, cozy, stylish and a great back yard all helped make our stay enjoyable. More importantly, Debora was a terrific host: prompt and clear with her responses, and very considerate of our time. She made the experience easy all around. We would definitely stay with Debora again!

Debora's place is in a nice, quiet neighborhood despite the house is on one of main streets in town. She has been great to communicate with and is always helpful when I asked her for local recommendations. Her place is very elegant, cozy and tasteful. My parents, my cousin and I have definitely enjoyed our stay immensely.

I am currently a high school principal at a private school in Los Angeles, although I've worked in a few different areas throughout my life. I've worked as a photographer and university professor. I am also a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef. I love meeting new people and learning about different cultures. My home is my sanctuary and I'm happy to share it with others.

My favorite travel experience was on the hotel train in Europe. I would board the train in the evening, have a wonderful meal and a hot shower in my little room, then go to sleep and wake up in a different country every morning, ready to explore.
