My review echoes other reviews. Staying in the Guest House was a vacation in itself. We had our 2 dogs with us, and they thought they were in dog heaven - a big yard to run in and Buddy (the resident big dog) as a friend. We had our 9 year-old granddaughter over and played a lot of table tennis (her first time) and the card game Fish. I baked 2 pies which I took to Thanksgiving dinner in an oven that was right-on with the temperature. We were warmly welcomed and enjoyed our visit very much.
Lovely small guest home stay in the heart of Pasadena, CA
Ginny provides a warm and comfortable guest home at the rear of her property in Pasadena. We were close to absolutely everything. Ginny provides the extras (i.e. organic dark roast coffee, waters, and it goes further w/ a high-end quality bed as well as sofa/ chairs and dinette-type set to easily settle in w/ lots of room. The real treat for us was the dark roast organic coffee provided in the refrigerator. And of course the full kitchen to prepare all meals, if one chooses...but found it easy to order take-out and just come back for relaxed dining in. We enjoyed the ambiance and charm of Ginny's guest home. Very relaxing at end of long day.
I would highly recommend staying here!
This is a wonderful place to stay in East Pasadena! The guest house is very charming.Ginny, the host, was very welcoming, as was Buddy, the dog! He kept me company while my husband went to the Santa Anita Horse Track, the reason for our visit from Richmond, VA. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, but close to downtown Pasadena and it's playhouses and restaurants, and Historic Route 66. We stayed here 3 nights, and hated to leave!
Fantastic cozy home, beautiful garden!
I was planning a visit to my Hometown, Pasadena, to visit with my oldest, life-long friend. It was going to be a girl's weekend, and I thought, why not do something extra special (not a hotel) when I saw this little guest house (with a great big pool!) was available. It turned out to be just the thing to take our little weekend and make it extraordinary. The feeling was simply relaxed. We got in some coffee and wine and we were all set!
We were lucky to have some warm October weather, and spent most of the first day just relaxing and swimming. The garden with its beautiful flowers, especially roses was charming! It was glorious! Our Host, Ginny, came out and visited with us. She was very welcoming and we had a good chat!
We enjoyed our time, coming and going, dining at local restaurants and seeing some sights. The side access is great, you can come and go without feeling like you're disturbing anyone. The house itself is sweet, with charming decor, and a comfortable bed. The fold-out couch was great, very comfy my friend said, and boom, we had a two bedroom suite. The little kitchen was just right for our needs - no cooking on this kind of vacay!
Time spent together - priceless! This unique location made our weekend together so special. We will never forget it!
Great, quite place to stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this location and would book again in the future. Ginny and Buddy (visiting us often) were great. Everything is well-maintained and the landscaping is beautiful. The Peacocks in the neighborhood were an added bonus :). Thanks again.
Great yard , beautiful pool, close to an interstate
Very happy with the experience with our first home away experience, will do this again. Friendly hostess, overall enjoyed our stay.
