Perfect place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a memorial service for a family member who passed away. This home was perfect because it could accommodate a number of family members and we were able to host the extended family after the service and reception, giving everyone the opportunity to spend some additional time together. There were a number of lovely outdoor patios and a deck to gather to talk and remember, laugh and cry. Also, it was quiet. We would stay there again definitely.

good

It is a good place to stay and visit LA and suburb areas. Overall the property was good. Owners need to upload some good looking new pictures in the web. Current pictures are really blurry!

Beautiful and unique house with spacious grounds and plenty of parking - everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for our mini-reunion of 7 adults and 2 kids as we attended a friend's wedding nearby. House was spotless with everything we needed (pots, pans, dishes, utensils) to grill outdoors and prepare breakfast inside. We could eat indoors or on the patio. Played board games and watch shows in the family room, or just catch up in the separate living room. Everyone had privacy when they wanted and the multiple bathrooms meant we were ready for the wedding with plenty of time.

We enjoyed the hiking trails right up the street and Pasadena was very convenient. Loved the personality of this home and the cool art. All instructions were very clear. Our first experience renting a house and it was fantastic - thank you!

Very much enjoyed this large gracious home in a beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time in this lovely home. The setting at the edge of the San Gabriel mountains is quiet and very scenic. The house was spacious and very well equipped. The home is older and showing its age a little, but so gracious and comfortable...we would all definitely stay there again. We had a wonderful time. Plenty of space for get togethers, a huge living room with lots of seating, a large game and tv room, 4 comfortable bedrooms....we didn't want to leave...

Owner's Response: It's always nice to have guests who enjoy the house. The house was built in 1933 but is solidly made and upgraded to current standards. Large spacious rooms, entertainment areas, patios, and grounds. Former owner was a JPL director. We are always working on upgrade projects to enhance the house and provide TLC. It is a never ending task. We welcome guests who can appreciate Pasadena/Altadena history. The community has lots of outstanding older homes and prides itself on it.

The house is huge and the views are breathtaking!

  • 4 of 5

The property is lovely. We enjoyed walking through the various gardens and looking at the fish in the fish pond. We sat outside every night with the fire pit going, just relaxing. Our family was on vacation visiting my brother and sister in law, celebrating Easter and their son's 1st birthday. The house accommodated about 30 people for Easter and room for more. We celebrated my nephews birthday with a small family gathering but it was perfect for my brother and his family to come over each day to spend time with them. We had a few issues but the property manager got back to us right away and resolved them in a timely manner. Overall our experience was great! We enjoyed our stay and the house very much!

Owner's Response: Glad to have happy guests. The amazing thing about the fish pond is that they are self maintained gold fish and get large. The property can accommodate lots of people (house on 3/4 acre +3/4 acre in the valley) but we limit it to 30 to keep the neighbors happy. Several patios for relaxation. Glad the fire pit on the front patio was used (next to the spa)
