Bungalow Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This property was extremely consistent with the listing description. Opting to rent this home for business travel (in lieu of a hotel), I was extremely pleased with the location, the furnishings, the layout, and the bed comfort. The utilities worked perfectly (cooling, hot water, lighting). There were no drafts, odors, or structure issues. The residential setting provided a quiet, private, and secure retreat for rest and relaxation. At the same time, it provided easy access to shopping and the 210 freeway. Finally, the property owner (Ginny) was extremely gracious, thorough, and communicated quickly from the point of reservation, arrival, and departure. I highly recommend this property for business or personal travel.

Wonderful house and property and very friendly owner.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for me and my children. The house is charming, perfect size for 4, and includes access to a very nice patio, pool and hot tub. The house comes stocked with coffee, cream, sugar, condiments, etc. The dog Buddy was so fun to have around, and he greeted us every morning when we opened the door. The house is in a nice quiet location, but close to Pasadena, Huntington Gardens, freeway access, etc. The host was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful property and best host

  • 5 of 5

Ginny was the best hostess ever. On the night we arrive she left all the lights on to make sure we could make it back to the beautiful guest house. The fresh flowers and good coffee were a perfect welcome. The area is beautiful and Buddy her dog is super sweet and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful grounds, swimming pool, historic home with two out buildings.

Older historic home with a small back guest house. A beautiful neighborhood in Pasadena.

Peacocks, peahens and babies too. Buddy the dog was friendly and Ginny was a gracious hostess.

I wondered if the reality could match the description. It did. Charming cottage on beautiful grounds with pool privileges and great hostess. Close to Huntington Library and Gardens. Would love to revisit.

Perfect Pasadena Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here as we often combine business & pleasure in the Pasadena area. The house is quaint, clean and just what we needed. Ginny and her son Nick are wonderful hosts. We hope to be back!
