About Kristan Evans
I am a former engineer who discovered Pasadena when I moved here to work for NASA. I am now a real estate agent and property manager in the Pasadena area. I love to travel.
Kristan Evans purchased this Townhome in 2007
Why Kristan Evans chose North Central
Our home is convenient to everything! We love being in the city. Our unit is in the back of the complex, off the street and quiet. Pasadena always has something going on - music in the park, festivals, Rose Bowl flea market and sporting events, and so much more! There's swimming at the Aquatic Center, architectural tours of the Gamble House and Pasadena Historical Society, Brookside Golf Course, hiking, bike riding and mountain biking, great shopping, great variety of restaurants, and non-stop fun for everyone!
What makes this Townhome unique
I love this hidden treasure, because it's plain on the outside and fabulous on the inside! It has lots of space. This is our home and we are happy to share it with you while we are away. I love the look of the mountains as the sun comes up. Sunsets are great, too. Pasadena is an easy place to live, with every convenience and so many family-friendly activities to choose from.

We stayed at this location for 4 night in March.The house was beautiful, big and in a perfect location. Very short drive from everywhere we wanted to go. The area felt safe, which was very important to us. Instructions were very clear on how to enter and what was required from us. The house had everything we needed and more. Owner was very responsive when I texted. Our family enjoyed it to the fullest and we will definitely return.
Fun family rental
Good amount of room in each room and spaces. Tons of games/toys for the kids to play with.
We are delighted that your family enjoyed the space and amenities!
Overall a good stay.
The townhouse has plenty of bedroom and bathroom space for a large group. Nine women could have been a challenge, but space was not an issue. The location is convenient, our events were all at the convention center, and the complex is quiet and low key. One garage space is handy, especially good for unloading and loading, and the street parking was readily available. Obtaining a parking permit online was easy, if there is any difficulty it's the City's website. The beds and pillows are comfortable, it was Feb and chilly at night so we needed to seek out the additional blankets in various closets, and there could be a better supply. That there are three full baths is especially good and the bathrooms were very clean. Overall the unit's living space is clean. The kitchen has the useful appliances such as coffee maker, microwave, toaster. The electric tea kettle for heating plain water was a plus for us. Using just the gate remote and garage door opener for access is awkward with a group that had varying schedules during our stay, and taking into account only one car is parked in the garage with several cars on the street. The lack of access to the front door/pedestrian gate with a key is inconvenient. As additional members of our group arrived back at the rental at different times they would call and we'd walk out to open the pedestrian gate. This defeats the explanation we were given for no keys that was to prevent excessive foot traffic. Make sure you have the door code from the garage to the unit with you, or don't go out to the garage with no one else available, because that door locks when closed and you could end up locked out. The kitchen needs usable pots and pans for cooking and the insides of the cupboards could use a thorough cleaning. Dishes washed in the dishwasher weren't clean and we hand washed most everything before using. More flatware would be helpful. To finish laundry before the 11 am checkout we did need to be up and getting that started very early on our last day and needed to leave the final load of towels in the dryer. A laundry fee might be a good option to make available, some of our party brought their own sheets and pillowcases and I question whether we would have been able to finish laundry in time if all of the bedding had needed to be done. Our rating is mainly a reflection of the size of the rental, location, and the pricing.
Great for a large family
10 of us went to a birthday party. Great location and very homie. Beds were very comfy. Parking is a little tight, but it worked out fine. Would definitely book again.
Just what we needed
6 of us with 4 bedrooms to use was great. We were excited to find nice wine glasses. "All we used was the fridge, microwave, and coffee pot. We appreciated the the dish soap and bars of soap in each bathroom too.
On arrival we had a really hard time finding that lock box that was hidden behind the cement wall by the lower gate. We also had no idea if we were at the right address coming in on Marengo and had to walk up the block to confirm the address.(It was really hot out) We did not receive the code to the lock box before we arrived and had to wait on hold for about 5 minutes. This was after we spent 15 min. going back and for the from gate to gate trying to figure out the instructions. We did not find an extra garage door opener in the house or a key to the front door and this did make for some hassle when we wanted to go our separate ways. Then there was a SUV parked opposite our garage which made for a super hard time getting in and out of the garage. Since only 1 car can fit in the garage, It would be nice to be alerted to the $3 street parking fee. It's minimal and can purchased online and printed ahead of time.
This townhouse is not for anyone who cannot do stairs!!
The 2 sofas and beds are old, as is most everything in the place, but it was cheaper than hotels for us all and we were happy to have use of it. It served our needs just fine. Thankyou to Turnkey , we would not of had time to do all the laundry/cleaning she was requiring and that had us really stressed.
