The Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just finished a fifteen day stay at this property. It was perfectly situated for our needs. The relatives we were visiting were just five minutes away. All of the attractions of the Pasadena area were an easy, short drive away, usually no more than fifteen minutes via the local roads. Situated in a very quiet residential neighborhood with great views of the nearby mountains, a very well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and all the amenities of home this was truly a great property.

Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a great place to stay in Pasadena. Very clean and such a nice touch to have a bottle of wine waiting for us when we got there! It is exactly as pictured. They had everything we needed and even supplied an air mattress on request. We cooked in quite a bit and they had plenty of pots/pans/dishes etc. to prepare meals. They even had rewards cards for the local grocery stores which saved us quite a bit. We walked to Eaton Canyon to go hiking and had dinner one evening at Domenico's (great food with casual atmosphere).We would definitely recommend this location!

I cannot say enough good things about this rental. It's located on a quiet, tree-lined street at the foot of the mountains in Pasadena. Upon our arrival, in the kitchen, there was a bottle of red and white wine, coffee creamer, k-cups (for Keurig), milk, and butter. The bathroom was stocked with body wash, shampoo, and conditioner, and the laundry room was stocked with laundry soap, stain remover, and fabric softener. Such a pleasant surprise to have these staple items stocked! The rental was immaculately clean (I am an extremely picky perfectionist when it comes to cleanliness). The beds were comfortable as well. There was also lovely patio/yard with a beautiful lemon tree! I would highly recommend this rental.

comfortable, centrally located, perfect choice for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. The kitchen was well stocked with staples and cookware. There were plenty of linens and comfortable beds. We really enjoyed morning coffee in the enclosed patio area. There is an outdoor table for meals in the patio area as well. The property was centrally located to the venues we wanted to visit--including downtown LA, the Getty, Griffith Park and Angeles National Forest hiking trails. We could walk to Eaton Canyon Nature Center and the trailheads within the park. We could also walk to a grocery store and several dining venues.

Albert and Isabel are the perfect hosts. They gladly answered any questions we had. They sent timely information on the rental unit and went beyond our expectations when there was a short power outage due to a traffic accident. Thank you Albert and Isabel for your attention to the details that made our vacation time in Pasadena so pleasant.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely and was well supplied with essentials. We have stayed in a few VRBO's and this was the best for supplies. We would definitely come back, and have already recommended it to friends. We enjoyed staying in Pasadena very much. It is a lovely community with its own activities and attractions (i.e. Gamble House, Rose Bowl), yet close enough to take in LA sites and attractions as well.

Prefect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I just have to review this house! We booked this house for 9 days and it was the best thing we EVER did! It made our trip so nice! I stayed here with my two little boys (toddler and infant) and me in one room and my sister and her husband in the other. Our extended family actually lives a few minutes from this house which is why we chose it at first! It was great to have a place where we could have our family over to hang out and eat together! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed!! It was very clean! One thing you don't really think of was the fact that it was HOT when visiting (100 degree weather) and this house has central air unlike many homes in Pasadena so you will be very comfortable!!!

If you have a little child this place has a great crib, high hair like what you find in a restaurant, and even a little drawer with some toys in it! It very kid friendly!

I can seriously go on and on about how much I enjoyed my stay in this house!!! All of us were so comfortable! I will definitely always choose this house when traveling to Pasadena to visit my family! Thank you for going over the top to make the people who stay in your house feel comfortable Isabel!
