cvs the pharmacy I round the corner, vons super market 3 minutes away. sound system , wifi, international cable. no bbq for the safety of the children. 7 minutes away from the oldtown of Pasadena & 3 minutes to all shop & rest on lake ave of Pasadena.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had wedding to attend in downtown L.A. last December. Sheida's beautiful house is so perfect for us and anybody who needs a comfortable home in a quiet area but still very close to shopping area, diners, markets and public transportation. The house is so warm , spacious and neat. I stayed there twice and Sheida always make sure that the house is ready for us to enjoy and relax.

The location is best, we can practically walk to supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, car rental and public transportation. It also only blocks away from the freeway entrances, which make us so easy and fast to go to any further destinations.

Thank you Sheida for providing us with such a beautiful, clean and spacious home for our holiday. Definitely will come again.

A Wonderful Home to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was very comfortable home for us to stay in. The furnishings and decor are very elegant and the beds were very comfortable to sleep in. The rooms are all very spacious. Our most favorite part of the house was the backyard - it is a beautiful oasis. We didn't use the pool during our stay, but it was so relaxing to spend some time outdoors in the sunshine surrounded by the lush landscaping.

Sheida was very friendly and checked in with us before and during our stay. Halfway through our stay, she even left a sweet note and some chocolates on the kitchen counter. She was very responsive to any questions we had. This property is beautiful, close-in, in a very safe neighborhood and a great value for the price.

Fantastic, luxurious home!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us traveled from Florida for a family Bar Mitzvah and we could not have had a better stay. The home is absolutely lovely and completely well stocked. We were not lacking for anything! The neighborhood is beautiful and perfectly located for going to Pasadena for fabulous restaurants and to Santa Monica and Malibu for a day of sightseeing. We had other out-of-town guests stop by to visit us and we all enjoyed visiting in the gorgeous backyard. A few of us used Uber to get around town or go to the local gym. We were able to enjoy making coffee and cooking breakfast all together and then hanging out in the comfortable family room. We even used the DVD player to watch our home movies! It was so much better than having three hotel rooms and WAY cheaper. In fact, it was the best bargain. We had a great week and hope to rent the home again when we need to be in LA. Sheida is the best. She is a very responsive, hands-on owner. You will not regret staying here.
