About Herbie Simmons

Our motto is simple. We are world travelers who have taken all of our experience, from staying at expensive hotels to the simplest hostile in South Africa, and now give it back to you. We do our best to put ourselves in your shoes as a traveler, who may often be scared or nervous traveling to a strange place and space not knowing what to expect, and in the highest consideration of all these factors we plan for your arrival as if we were you. What would I want? What would I expect? Then we do our best to exceed those expectations just for you and your family. Often our very hard work and preparation goes unnoticed but we hope you find our extra efforts in cleanliness and detail more rewarding than a 5 star hotel with an experience of being at a home away from home.

Herbie Simmons purchased this house in 2006

Why Herbie Simmons chose Altadena

You will enjoy the privacy, views from lying in your bed of downtown Los Angeles and surrounding foothill and mountain areas. The property is located within minutes of Old Town Pasadena and just 30 minutes north of Downtown Los Angeles. You will forget that you are in the big city of Los Angeles and when you want the night life or entertainment of the city it's only minutes away. That's what makes Altadena and this location in particular very special, not to mention all the popular hiking trails are at your back door.

Very comfortable and conveniently located vacation getaway -- AMAZING views.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed with Herbie twice and have been VERY satisfied with all accommodations. The rental unit has direct access to a refreshing swimming pool and a spacious patio which provides amazing views of Pasadena and further in the distance Los Angeles. To the North directly behind the property are majestic mountain ranges which offer hiking trails and more impressive views from their peaks... seeing the rising sun shining over the mountains is a gorgeous sight to behold.

Herbie is an extremely kind and gracious host and provides all amenities a traveler could ask for ... clean towels and linens ... HD TV with cable and Roku... a kitchen and food preparation area. This is an ideal choice for 2 adults and up to 2 children. While the living space is small it is completely adequate for a week's stay as we have done each of the past two years.

I highly recommend that you seriously consider this rental property for your next stay in the Pasadena/Altadena area.

Nice property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. It has million dollar views of downtown, but at a great price. The owner was very cordial and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again if I am in town. It had everything that we needed.
