About Philip Nix

This house has been in our family for over forty years. While regularly upgraded it retains the charm of an early 20th century home. As a young couple we first moved to this area in 1972. with our one year old son. Shortly after my wife's mother moved in down the street into this address. After years in Sonoma County after retirement we returned to be close to family and the interests and variety of urban life in a beautiful city. Pasadena has a long and fascinating history with all the glitter of now and the charm of a gracious past.

Philip Nix purchased this house in 1973

Why Philip Nix chose Pasadena

As the reviews mention very often, the area is beautiful and suited to great walks. It is generally convenient but much more personal than a hotel.

Charming Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this small cottage in a lovely neighborhood. We especially appreciated the excellent air conditioning during the hottest days of 2017. The charming private patio was shaded and comfortable all day long, and even into the evening on those hot, hot days. Making our stay even more fun were the amazing halloween decorations throughout the neighborhood. What a festive atmosphere. Phil was an accommodating host -- all the comments in other reviews were our experience too. And we thank Phil for adding the bannister on the stairs!

genteel, comfortable, and inspired

  • 5 of 5

This is a great find from the cottage feel of the rental, the location and the kind and brilliant host. A bottle of wine and snacks was gracious and we felt more like friends and guests than renters. I hesitate to send this for fear it will--alas--not be available next time we wish to stay.

Fun in the sun!

This was our second time staying at this location in a beautiful Pasadena neighborhood. It's the perfect size for two people. The provided snacks and drinks were very much appreciated. We hope to return again soon.

Great little unit in a lovely neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the unit for a month in the summer. Philip was a great host! Always there to help if needed, just the host you want. The unit's location was fantastic for us. The neighborhood is safe and clean. The unit is comfortable and bright it was lovely to see the oranges from the window and hear the birds in the morning.

We will definitely be happy to stay there again!
