Overview

About the property

Large 550 sq ft entertainment/sleeping area with loft, 3/4 BR, sleeps 3 - 4

Nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains is a tropical oasis awaiting your arrival. Why spend hours flying to Hawaii when you can enjoy tropical South Seas ambiance in Pasadena.

The neighborhood is great for walking with beautiful tree lined streets. The rental comes complete with exclusive use of outdoor dining area, swimming pool (unheated), fire ring, and heated spa.

Pasadena, located 9 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, is a vibrant city, rich in history and culture, and home to the world famous New Year’s Day Tournament of Roses. Average year round temperature is 76 F daytime to 54 F nighttime. You are minutes away from many sports and recreation areas, and 30 to 60 minutes from all the major Los Angeles attractions.

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.

A short but sweet stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two small children and I had the most relaxing time staying in the Polynesian Paradise! We stayed for three nights and even hosted some friends for a poolside dinner one night. The tropical decor and lush landscaping made us feel instantly transported, we felt like we were in Hawaii or Tahiti! The house is fully equipped with every dish and linen you could ever need. The hosts gave us total privacy and the way the house and backyard are situated makes it feel like a private home. We recommend asking the hosts to heat the pool which they will happily do for a small additional fee, the water was so warm and inviting that our toddler could spend hours playing and splashing. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and beautiful, good restaurants and grocery options close by. We would highly recommend this oasis and will be returning soon!

Relaxation Every Day

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were thrilled to arrive at the house in Pasadena and couldn't wait to explore it. Jama gave us a warm welcome! The house is tucked into a very nice street in Pasadena. Beautiful homes all around. Also, the property is nestled at the foothills of the San Gabriela, VERY quiet and peaceful, and gave us several days of peace and tranquil afternoons under the palms. The kids swam four hours a day in the pool and just loved it. The kitchen and fridge were just what we needed for a week's stay, and we cooked most meals there. Any and all utensils, pots, etc are there - fully stocked. There's really nothing critical to say... We would most definitely return on future trips to LA.

Quiet, relaxing, bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property is uniquely beautiful, a guest house tucked behind a craftsman cottage in an upscale neighborhood of Pasadena. You are transported to the South Sea island retreat. Soaking pool and heated spa await to melt away your worldly tensions while tiki gods watch over you. Cottage is comfortably appointed in matching decor, including incredible collection of ceramic drinking cups. Kitchen has all the necessities and room to move. Extra large web tv is at your service (however during our stay a storm knocked out the connection for the entire day, so come prepared with reading material). Host Jama was present to welcome us, but left us alone to enjoy the setting with a thoughtfully placed privacy screen. Bed was comfortable and pool towels were extra large. Quiet, peaceful, calming spot to soothe your soul. Hope to come again.

Wonderful Tiki Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of three- with a nine-year old) stayed for four days at the turn of the New Year and had the best time. All was exactly as advertised- beautifully appointed tiki bungalow with a loft space, hot tub and pool. The accommodations are around the back from the owner's residence- but they provided all the privacy we desired (and tips/recommendations when needed). We look forward to staying here on our next visit to the Pasadena area.

Very nice place and really a great experience! Jama was very nice and helful.

  • 4 of 5

It was my birthday/Christmas celebration and it was quite a surprise. We enjoyed every amenity, jacuzzi and pool was wonderful; even though it rained few days, jacuzzi worked perfectly and pool very inviting providing a very relaxing experience. I will consider this place first for my next trip to Pasadena, which I visit 3 or 4 times a year.
