About Bonnie at the Bungalow

My husband, Kent, and I have lived in Pasadena since 1991. We love and enjoy this area with it's natural beauty, magnificent architecture, cultural events, wonderful neighborhoods, and so many things to do and see. Although living here for over 20 years we are still surprised by the treasures we find. Kent works as an optical engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and I home-school our two children in this vibrant and creative community. I'm here to answer any of your questions about the area and/or The Bungalow.

Why Bonnie at the Bungalow chose Los Angeles area

This unique bungalow offers a bit of everything. It's location is very central . You can take pleasant walks to places you need to go, or just for fun. The 1922 craftsman bungalow style is quintessential Pasadena, which makes it very charming and attractive. It is private, quite and discrete and has been updated to include all the comforts of home.

What makes this bungalow unique

Location. Privacy. Charm. Comfort. Convenience. Connectivity.

Perfect location

Two doors from our daughter and son- in- law made for a great and relaxing visit. The house is clean, comfortable and coney.

very clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Bonnie was very accommodating, helping us settle in late at night the day we arrived. The bungalow is cozy and well located. We had a great time. She did everything she said she would -- no questions asked.

Cute Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the bungalow meet our needs. Bonnie was helpful in getting us settled in and while we were there. When we first saw the outside we were afraid of what we got in to, but we were pleased how everything turned out. The only drawback was the parking situation, at times it was not convenient and at times the one and two hour limit was something you had to watch. Overall we did enjoy our stay there.

It really is “a home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

The Bungalow could not be nicer..both inside the house and outdoors in the private garden. You will feel at home the first day and will not want to leave...
