My wife and I spent a great night here last week hosted by Rolf. We saw less of Cynthia as she was at work during the day. The accomodations are comfortable and fairly represented in the photographs and previous reviews. We are not hard core naturists but are willing to try new things. Rolf is a polite and genial host who is extremely accomodating in all respects. He is a fine cook and prepared a delightful Sonoran egg bake for our breakfast. The property is very close to an access point for trails in the Arroyo Seco so we were able to take a nice hike in the morning. As to the naturist angle, Rolf is completely fine with whatever one feels comfortable with in that regard. As he emphasized to us, "It's clothing optional!" As for us, we did some limited sunning in the late afternoon. I would highly recommend this property for someone looking for something a little different than the basic corporate hotel options in the Pasadena area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Arroyo del Sol: This unique and significant clothing optional home is located on the edge of the Arroyo Seco Canyon and is a true experience to enjoy with it's 1940's styling and feel. Situated on 2/3 acre, it is adjacent to the trail-head for hiking, biking and horseback riding into the Angeles National Forest, which is just a few steps from the home. Minutes away from the Rose Bowl, shopping, theaters, museums and all of the other amenities of Pasadena, plus a short drive to downtown Los Angeles, Anaheim and the SoCal beaches! A fabulous location for adventuring out to see all that SoCal has to offer...all while you enjoy being in a nudist friendly environment! ... more less
