About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom House With Pool/Spa, 15 Minutes From The Rose Bowl

This romantic, Spanish get-away is situated near the foothills of Pasadena, 15 minutes from the famous Rose Bowl, Rose Parade, Rose Parade float viewing area and Old Town Pasadena.

Built in 1931, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has been renovated to feature modern amenities without losing its old world charm. This truly is your own private resort with a completely private backyard. The master bathroom has just be renovated to the highest level of design. You truly won't want to leave this Hacienda! The reviews tell it all.

For the coffee lovers there is a Keurig coffee maker. Prefer a latte or a mocha? We also have a Nepresso expresso machine with an frother.

For the chefs, there is a double oven, All-Clad cooking set, and anything else you would need to cook a wonderful meal. You are welcome to any of our spices that you may have forgotten to pick up at the store. Our kitchen has everything you will need. Want to BBQ? Well you're at the home. There's an outdoor built in BBQ hooked up to a gas line so you will never need to worry about your gas tank running low. The gas BBQ is the top of the line BBQ from BBQs Galore.

For the people who like to just simple pick up a book or drink a glass of wine with a loved one your hardest decision will be choosing the space. There are so many wonderful spaces to choose....sitting area by the outside fireplace, lounge chairs by the pool, dining table by the pool, dinning table in the courtyard, outside living room in the courtyard or a cozy seat in the living room.

For those who love to hike, you are at the perfect spot. There is amazing hiking about a mile north from the house.

For those who love a great nights sleep, the house has the top of the line Tempur-Pedic king size mattress in the master bedroom, top of the line traditional coil queen mattress in bedroom 2 and bedroom 3 also has the Cloud Temper-Pedic mattress which is also a queen. The master bedroom also has an adjustable base perfect to watch a movie. All three beds have top quality bedding with down comforters, duvets and down pillows. You really won't want to get out of bed.

For those who love resort style living this is the perfect house. You'll have your own private resort complete with an outdoor fireplace, spa, pool, outside shower and bistro lights that makes you feel you're visiting a villa in France! Perfect for a romantic getaway or spending times with friends and family.

For the sight seeing adventurous traveler you'll love visiting all the exciting places In LA and Orange County you're at the perfect location. Think of this house as being in the middle of an equilateral triangle. You're at the epicenter of excitement! Yet nestled in a quiet neighborhood when you're done with the hustle and bustle of the city.

And lastly, for the food lovers, there is no other place than Pasadena. There are so many choices you'll have a hard time deciding. There will be a book of recommendations that are my very favorites, however there's still so many I've yet to visit myself! You'll get the local insider info on the off the beaten path places to go!

My goal is that you and your family had the most memorable vacation of all time. It really is a special place and you won't regret your stay at the Hacienda de Pasadena where there is something for everyone!

Fantastic home with fabulous outdoor space in quaint neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Home is well maintained and looks exactly like the photos. Furnishings and beds/linens were nice quality. The outdoor space is fabulous and where we spent most of our time. Owner was super friendly and easy to work with. A few quirky things like one bedroom being warmer than the others- but nothing unexpected for an older home. Clear the owners keep the house well maintained. Highly recommend!

Hacienda de Pasadena was indeed amazing

  • 5 of 5

I was perfect for our group. Very comfortable inside and out . Kris the owner was very accommodating. The indoor and out door space was very enjoyable. We loved the way it was decorated and really enjoyed the courtyard and the pool area. I would recommend this for a very nice place to enjoy your time in this area.

Beautiful inside and out!

The home provides a lovely retreat, especially the outstanding back courtyard and separate pool/fireplace area. The property has been decorated tastefully both inside and out–clearly a labor of love! The owner is pleasant and helpful. Overall, this is a great place to stay!

Great property Nicely furnished and very well located.

  • 5 of 5

We are very familiar with this area and pick the house initially based on its location and photos of the property. We were not disappointed the house is well furnished and everything is easy to find. The outside is great for entertaining! unfortunately we had a number events we had to attend and the weather was on the cooler side so we were able to use the pool as much we would have liked to. The owner was very responsive if we had any questions. Overall a great experience!!
