Guestbook comments from the owner

Whether you like to swim, paddle around, sun bathe, sit and think or sit and soak in the sunshine, the facility is absolutely perfect for relaxing.



If you like to be inside watching TV or reading, it's great, too (more stations than I could count).



Quiet neighborhood. Close to Pasadena's Old DownTown and plenty of attractions nearby.



Attractions nearby, yes. But you can get your full value just by staying around and enjoying the premises.



Thank you for a great stay.

Polynesian Paradise in Pasadena

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Pasadena with my wife and parents for my son's graduation from APU this December. The patio with the outdoor fireplace comfortable furniture and lights helped make the graduation party a lot of fun. We did not use the pool but enjoyed the hot tub. The Polynesian decor is a little over the top but works, the neighborhood is very pleseant and the location convenient. Owners were friendly and helpful, enjoyed our stay very much.

This was a perfect retreat to escape after long days of work!

  • 5 of 5

The outdoor pool area was right outside of the very private cottage. It felt like we had our own little paradise. Jama was an incredibley accommodating host. We were in town on a business trip and had to have several things shipped to the house. She was so super helpful and sweet! We would definitelyl love to stay here again.

Private and romanic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Property owners Jama and Joann we're the best. My husband, 10 month old son and I stayed a week. It was cozy, clean and had everything you could possibly need, especially in the kitchen. We spent every evening in the private pool and spa its beautiful and romanic. Baby gear (playpen and bassinet) were provide which was a huge bonus. Pasadena is a wonderful neighborhood. We will be back!

We were a group of two adult couples and found the property to be exactly what we needed for a great price. Communication with Jama and Joanne was always quick and helpful. They were very accommodating and we would definitely stay here again.

Best time ever

  • 5 of 5

Our private oasis is super romantic. We loved the largest collection of Hawaiiana tiki items we've ever seen. Can't say enough about the place. We want to make staying there an annual event.

tranquil in LA

  • 5 of 5

This was an enjoyable 5 night vacation. The tiki cottage was spacious & comfortable. The spa & pool were clean & a pleasant temperature. We started & ended our days sitting by the pool listening to birds & silence. The owners have put a lot of time & love into their place. Thank you. It was a wonderful escape.
