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:
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.
Your friendly hosts Shawn and Scott live here, upstairs in our master suite, so please treat our home as you would your own.
We are a drug-free and non-smoking home, though you are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during your stay.
Quiet time after 10pm.
No pets, no parties please.
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!
