About Jerzy

I am a Chicago native who is happy to be living in California. (Though I like to visit the Midwest.) Currently, my wife, daughter, and I live about 10 minutes from this property in Pasadena. I am excited to share all that Pasadena has to offer to visitors.

Jerzy purchased this townhome in 2006

Pasadena fun!

  • 4 of 5

This property is super convenient for all things awesome in Pasadena. The owner is great and very responsive to inquiries. The house is within easy walking distance to all old town destinations and within a short drive to the Rose Bowl and or great hiking and mountain biking in the San Gabriel Mountains. It is bare bones but has what you need including a coffee grinder! My only negative is it could use some updating in terms of more comfortable mattresses but the price is right compared to other comparable properties in Pasadena.

Very walkable location to Downtown Pasadena, lots of space, great communication!

  • 5 of 5

Jerzy was very amendable, responded quick even after we made a few mistakes (wrong parking spot, lost something important) and was super responsive and cordial. We were in Petaluma for a Conference w/ a nonprofit I volunteer for with 2 of my colleagues and needs a closely accessible place to the Convention Center and Jerzy's house was perfect! We didn't need to drive the entire time because of the great location. We all got our own bedrooms, and the internet was really quick too. We didn't use the Kitchen but it was fully stocked and even had a small patio in the back. Super quiet and a place I wouldn't mind living. Thanks again Jerzy! Appreciate the hospitality.

Fab family-friendly place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this super townhouse and it was our home from home for five weeks while I had a fellowship at the Huntington Library, which is about 3.5 miles away. We felt so lucky to have discovered this fantastic rental: I was travelling from UK with family and this place was perfect because there are three separate bedrooms so everyone had their own space. I brought sister-in-law and her family, mother-in-law, and my partner and naughty toddler and there was plenty of room - Jurek couldn't have been more helpful in sorting everything out before we arrived, down to leaving a big box of toys to amuse my two and a half year old and setting up stair-gates. There's also Netflix which was very useful when El Nino hit for a couple of days!

The location is amazing, especially for a family. Easy walking distance to downtown Pasadena and Old Pasadena with all its great shops, cafes, etc. Playgrounds, lovely diners within a few minutes of the house: we also took metro into Los Angeles and took Jerzy's recommendation to go to Olvera Street etc. There's also plenty of parking and the freeway is so accessible, we spent time going out to Santa Monica, Ojai etc. and it was all really reachable.

We were lucky enough to be there during Rose Bowl time and this is the perfect place to see it from. Everything is so walkable, and Jerzy is an ideal host, he showed us where to go, personally took us down to the Parade and made sure we had an amazing experience. He went above and beyond anything you could expect from a host! We were made so welcome, lots of tips and ideas, and he was always on hand if we needed anything.

House is just as described: fantastic kitchen, very well equipped, with everything you could need. Spacious, with a massive oven, coffee-maker, etc. Plenty of space for dining and a little courtyard outside space, really safe for children. Plus my partner was able to work at home because internet connection was excellent. Master bedroom has a lovely big comfy queen bed, plus wall mounted TV - and a view of the mountains and orange trees out at the back. Set back from the road and nice and quiet. By the time we came to leave we just didn't want to say goodbye to Pasadena, my sister in law wanted to stay on and move right in.

Thanks for a great stay!

Fantastic stay in this great place!

  • 5 of 5

Love this house! What a find. We were so lucky to come across this great family-friendly place and the welcome Jurek gave us was amazing! From the moment we drove up to see the English flag flying we were made really at home. I was travelling from the UK with family including 2 year old and Jurek couldn’t have been more hospitable and laid-back even though our toddler is pretty raucous and destructive. We stayed for five weeks and absolutely loved it – situation is perfect, within 10 minutes walk of Old Pasadena, lovely cafes, unique shops, restaurants, night-life etc, and the freeway v accessible to take you to mountains/coast/Los Angeles etc.

In terms of the house, it’s an excellent choice for groups because there are three separate bedrooms so everyone can have their own space. Everything accurate on description - photos don't do it full justice. Shared bathroom upstairs, but nice and big. Everything well presented, set back from the road so it’s nice and quiet, lovely view of the mountains from the back rooms. Big queen bed in the master bedroom, very comfy, plus wall-mounted TV. Stand out thing is the great kitchen. Really well-equipped, massive oven, and everything you could need from coffee machine to excellent pans, Osterizer etc. Brilliant – we really enjoyed this aspect.

Plus Jurek was so welcoming. Loads of emails before we arrived in response to our many questions and then lots of tips, his whole family were really lovely to us, a real Californian welcome! He showed us the inside track on the Pasadena Rose Bowl Parade, where to stand to get the best view etc. and took us down personally to make sure we had the best experience. Loads of tips on where to eat and where to go in Pasadena. It totally made our trip.

Thoroughly recommend this great house and wonderful host!
