Our spacious 4-BR home is close to Hollywood, downtown LA and Pasadena. Light breakfast is included! This guest room (one of three available) has a queen bed and private bathroom. Relax in our secluded backyard with pool, spa, BBQ and beautiful mountain views. Big-screen tv too!

The space

Our four-bedroom home in the quiet foothill town of La Crescenta is spacious and open. We live here in the house and our master suite is upstairs. Our large backyard is very private and features a pool (heated on request in summer) and spa (heated on request year-round), a spacious two-level patio, gas barbeque and a beautiful mountain view.

This guest bedroom features a queen-size bed, and the private full bath is just across the hall.

(Please note that one indoor cat lives in the house. He is not allowed in the bedrooms.)

We also have two other bedrooms available if you need more space. See the listings here:

Guest access

Guests will have SHARED access to the kitchen, dining room, living room with piano and fireplace, family room with big screen television (with all premium cable, movie and sports channels), washer and dryer, and the private backyard with pool (heated in summer), spa (heated by request year-round) and barbeque. You'll also have free access to our guest wifi network.

Interaction with guests

We are an empty-nester couple who are home most of the time, so we will probably be here during your stay, but we are happy to give you all the privacy you want. We love to travel ourselves, so we enjoy meeting people from all over the globe. We're happy to leave you to explore on your own, but would enjoy helping you plan your visit to experience all the best Los Angeles has to offer. If we have time, we might even take you out and about ourselves if you like.

Other things to note

Late check-in fee (after 9:00 PM): $30.

We'll provide a few breakfast basics (usually cereal, fruit, bagels and juice), coffee and tea. Pick a fresh grapefruit from our tree (in season) and enjoy it with your breakfast!

If you have kids, note that the pool is fenced and locked, so they can play outside safely.

Super hosts, nice house with spa away from downtown (during rush hour it took us 1 hour to get home by car), grocery shop nearby.

You have found the right place if you are looking for a safe, scenic and calm "home away from home". Staying with Scott and Shawn is like being with family and you will be able to attend to your vacation or work with peace of mind. Safe parking, access to laundry and high level of hygiene are bonuses if you are traveling with children - and the block out blinds made for a restful sleep. The breakfasts with bagels and toast while watching the humming-birds eat their breakfast outside the majestic dining table window, will be sure to set the tone for a beautiful day ahead. If you can, try to schedule even 30minutes to experience the hot tub/pool - it felt like swimming up in the mountains.... and doubles for a paddle pool for the little ones. Thank you Shawn & Scott - wonderful to cross paths with you both and we wish you many more blessed years of ABB hosting ;)

This was our first experience with AIRBNB. I must say it was fantastic! Shawn and Scott (and their cat, Dash) were wonderful, gracious hosts. They made us feel "at home". Their beautiful, clean comfortable home was perfect - a place we would love to live in. We hope to enjoy their great hospitality again!

As always, Shawn and Scott lived up to their airbnb "Super Host" designation. These two have found their calling! Their home and pool are lovely, in a beautiful neighborhood that is close to the freeway. Rooms are well-appointed, with comfortable beds and toiletries provided in each bathroom and a welcoming breakfast each morning. The hosts are always available with ideas for activities and dining, but never intrusive. I will keep coming back again and again whenever I can!

Thanks, Nancy. We really enjoyed having you here and the wonderful conversations. Come back soon!

This stay was so amazing! Shawn and Scott were very friendly, communicated very well, and very accommodating. The hot tub was an added bonus. The view was gorgeous and their place is very centrally located, we didn't have to travel more than an hour an a half (including traffic) to all our target destination. I highly recommend this stay.

Response from Shawn & Scott:
Thanks, Kierra! It was delightful having you here. We hope you can visit again someday.

Scott and Shawn's place was comfortable and clean. They were friendly people who were extremely accommodating. The room itself was cozy and the bed was extremely comfortable. The location of the house is secluded, but still close to a major freeway. It was easy to get around for sure. Would stay again!

We are Shawn and Scott, your friendly hosts. We are empty-nesters who have lived in the Glendale area for 35 years, and in this home for 15. We love to travel and enjoy meeting people from all over the globe. Scott is a semi-retired film studio executive and Shawn is a freelance graphic designer and artist with a home studio.

We love living in Los Angeles and enjoy movies, good food and wine, museums, concerts, sports and (almost) all types of music. A fun day for us starts with a hike in the hills, followed by relaxing by the pool, taking a dip in the spa, and barbequeing dinner while sipping wine on the patio. Or a bike ride on the beach and dinner out while watching the sunset. Lately we have been going on stairwalks, exploring the hundreds of public staircases, some built in the 20s and 30s, that dot the hillsides all over the Los Angeles area.

We've traveled to Europe, Asia and much of the US. We've slept in comfy hotels, tiny bnbs, tents in a campground and bedrooms in private homes. Our favorite spots so far have been Hong Kong and Bruges, Belgium. Our travel wish list includes Africa and the Caribbean.

We'd be happy to show you around the area, or help guide you to explore on your own. We started our Airbnb adventure in May 2014, and we are loving it so far!
