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.

Week long renter
This was absolutely wonderful. Our family felt at home. It was a wonderful place to have to prepare for our daughters wedding since we were from South Dakota. The owner was amazing and very helpful to us and understanding. Everything that was available to us was great. Location was also wonderful. Easy access to everything we needed.
We had a great time!!
My husband and I came to Pasadena with our three adult children. This home was perfect for us. We had plenty of space and this made our vacation more enjoyable. My boys went to the E3 convention in LA and we drove to Disneyland one day. We also went to the beach and toured around LA. This home worked well for all of these activities. Everything was clean and we felt very safe. Kristan was excellent to work with. I would have given it five stars if not for the clean up procedures. They were extensive and took me several hours on the day we left as everyone else had plans.
I traveled with 4 other adults and 1 child and there was plenty of rooms/beds for everyone. The décor is a little crazy but I'm a country girl from Arkansas. I would recommend staying here.
A place to meet
The condo is very clean and comfortable inside. Plenty of beds, fairly well supplied kitchen. The neighborhood is beautiful for walking past the lovely old Pasadena homes. We were 3 couples, plus 2 singles, visiting for a graduation. Kristan supplied extra remotes, so each couple could get in the gate. Just be aware of all the rules about silence outside which did make us quite uncomfortable even as all adults. We aren't noisy people, but felt like we needed to creep around if we stepped out or get fined. If you are looking for a place to sleep and be able to cook this is very adequate. All the entry code information felt quite confusing in emails, but did become clear when we arrived and spoke with Kristan.
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.
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.
