Spacious cottage in an ideal location

  • 4 of 5

This cottage provided a convenient base for work at the Huntington Library and would be a great location for other destinations, including Cal Tech, the Rose Parade, and the Rose Bowl. It's spacious and private, despite being located in the hostess' backyard, and the lush landscaping made it an enjoyable retreat. There are good restaurants and grocery stores a short drive away. I would not describe the cottage as a 5-star accommodation because the furniture showed some wear and tear, and the cottage lacked a few hotel-style amenities like a separate bar of soap for both the shower and bathroom sink. There were a few glitches, including ants in the bathroom and a dishwasher that was hard to operate. But the hostess gave me a warm welcome, and her home and the surrounding neighborhood are beautiful and upscale. I appreciated being given a parking permit so I could leave my rental car on the residential street in front of the house. So, all in all, a good stay.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable house and Angelique was a terrific hostess! She is so bubbly and sweet. She was there to help us in any way at any time. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. My husband and two teenage daughters loved it as much as I did.

Most adorable guest house, just 2 miles from Rose Bowl! The pictures DO NOT do this place justice. Absolutely adorable, clean, and homey. Angelique and her husband were SO hospitable, and gave us a great place to stay for my boyfriend's birthday! Highly recommend!

Great stay in a great property with great host!

  • 5 of 5

As frequent vacation rental users, we found this property to be one of the best as it was roomy, clean, attractive, comfortable, and well provisioned with linens and everything else one could need ( down to even things like lots of paper and plastic products) and, the owner, Angelique, was extremely responsive to any questions or requests that we had both as we considered renting, after we reserved and before our stay, and all during it. She was very welcoming to both us and our family in the area including our 12 year old twin granddaughters and we enjoyed visiting with her. It is in a lovely, quiet upscale residential area of Pasadena and we had lots of privacy, even though it was in the back of Angelique's house, as the back deck and yard behind the rental was completely for us and the landscaping, fencing etc made it all very private but well lit for coming and going after dark. Plus, we had the use of the shared part of the backyard in front of the rental to ourselves most days also and Angelique and her husband were obviously very mindful of our privacy. We actually really enjoyed knowing they were close by if we had any questions and loved how quickly she responded when we did through texting or stopping by for things like showing us how to work the cable. The bed and furniture were quite comfortable and we enjoyed having cable and wi fi. Our granddaughters found the pull out couch and the queen blow-up bed comfortable also on the one night that they stayed over. We especially liked having a very nice large capacity full size washer and dryer in the unit (but in a separate laundry area). That was REALLY nice and convenient for a 13 day stay! Great to have a dishwasher and quite large and nice refrigerator also. There is plentiful street parking and we were provided the needed permit to park overnight. Also, we appreciated that the driveway was cleared of cars when we were moving in and out so we could get closer to the rental and we were even provided a wagon to facilitate moving the too much stuff that we bring in and out! So WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RENTAL-The Studio-and hope it is available for our future visits to family.

Owner's Response: Hi Ron & Kathy, Thank you so much for writing such a detailed review :-). I enjoyed meeting your whole family and so happy that you had quality time with them with their big move to Southern California. I especially love all your post it notes that you left for me certainly made my day. Hope to see some time soon! Angelique
