Stunning, relaxing and unique getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience was just amazing! From even before we arrived, AJ was pure perfection! The home is absolutely stunning...an architectural dream and super cozy at the same time. AJ goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is comfortable. A 5 star rating doesn't even come close to doing this one justice!

Beautiful patio

  • 3 of 5

Great location, beautiful patio, spacious home, great kitchen. However we had ants in the master bathroom and bedroom. Also a sewer smell in one of three bathrooms. We did not notify the owner until the day before we were leaving. Sounded like everything got fixed after we left. We did enjoy our visit very much.

This was the perfect house for our families to all stay together for our trip to LA. We chose this lovely home based on the reviews and the photos but we had no idea how much character and charm it really has in person. This roomy well thought out floor plan was perfect for our mini family reunion. We had five adults and two small children everyone had their own comfortable sleeping retreat and the massive living room/kitchen common area was so nice for everyone to be together for family time. This quaint neighborhood has a close proximity to the freeways and is ideal for pretty much anything in and around LA. AJ, the owner, made our stay even nicer by focusing on the nice little details. I highly recommend this original mid-century property. It's so worth it!

Beautiful Mid Century gem in Pasadena

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for five nights for our son's wedding. It was just as gorgeous as the pictures on VRBO had suggested. The original mid Century character was visible in every room, and the furnishings were classic and understated. Best of all, the wall of glass made the pool area visible from the living room, dining room and kitchen. In the evenings we opened the sliding glass doors to let the beautiful California evening in. Sunsets were amazing.

The location was fantastic--a quiet neighborhood only five minutes from Old Town and convenient to the 210, 134 and 110 freeways. It's also an easy commute (30 minutes or less) to downtown, Dodger Stadium, Chinatown, Universal Studios and the whole of the San Fernando Valley. The owner AJ was lovely to deal with and very responsive whenever we had a question. Overall, this is an excellent option for a family (three bedrooms, sleeps six comfortably) that wants an extended stay in Pasadena. We definitely will rent again the next time our family gets out to Southern California.
