About the Homestay
We have a 5-bedroom Mediterranean style home in a quiet, safe suburban area. It is about a 5 minute drive to Pasadena (PCC, Caltech) and about a 20 minute drive to downtown Los Angeles.
At our home, you would have full kitchen access, access to shared living spaces (previous students have liked studying in our dining room :) ), air conditioning, heat, a TV, free street parking 24/7, and wi-fi access. We have two adjacent rooms available that share a restroom. The restroom has a shared sink and a separate room for the toilet/shower for privacy and convenience.
I am home often and will be available for any questions. Our home is quiet and would be great for students who need to study. Please, no pets and no smoking.

Cora is a very friendly and hospitable host! I thank her very much for her kindness! Her house is located in a nice and safe residential area, and also not very far from central Pasadena and Alhambra. There is a bus stop near her house, which was very convenient.
How nice the experience is! The house is luxurious, and the whole family is just too kind to complain. They always share things with me, help me get out of troubles and even invite me to enjoy the music night!
Cora and her family are lovely people! The house is beautiful and comfortable! I had a great time while living there. I highly recommend and I'll be visiting them someday for sure! Thank you, Cora, for treating us so kindly and thank you for the great dinners you prepared for us! God bless you and your family!!
Stayed here nearly 4 months and it was the best decision I could make. The rooms and the house are clean, Cora, her husband and her daughter were super nice to me. I really enjoyed my whole stay here. She bought water, soda and all the stuff for breakfast for me and stored it in a separate refrigerator. That was much more than a "light breakfast". You get your own keys and you can come and go whenever you want to, there are no restrictions... When you need help they are there for you. A really lovely family, that enjoy to have international people at their house. She had many international students at her house before, but they were language school exchange-students. That's the reason why she doesn't have any reviews here on homestay right now.
When I come back to LA one day, I will definitely visit Cora and her family again.
