beautiful little oasis!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two boys loved this place! It was super cozy and much better than staying in a hotel. Great location, very clean (and I am picky) and nicely stocked kitchen. Would stay again in a heartbeat. And loved getting to meet Ginny and her adorable pup Buddy!

Outstanding family property

  • 5 of 5

I, personally, have never stayed at the property but have viewed it on many occasions. For the past two years, our daughter and her family from CT have stayed at the property during the Christmas holidays and are at the point where they will not stay anywhere else. It is so convenient to everything and the ambiance that Ginny has created is beyond words! Our grandchildren are especially fond of Buddy, the qwners dog. We're already looking forward to next Christmas!!

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place to stay. Ginny and her son, Nick, were the perfect hosts. I traveled to Pasadena to work on a couple of Rose Bowl floats and attend the parade. Excellent neighborhood, very convenient to freeway and other attractions. Ginny’s place is absolutely beautiful and her hospitality was off the grid!! The bungalow had lots of comfortable space and the bed was very nice. I slept better than I have in a long time. If I ever decide to go to Pasadena again, I can only hope this extended home will be available again. Buddy, her dog, was a welcomed new friend!!

Bungalow Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This property was extremely consistent with the listing description. Opting to rent this home for business travel (in lieu of a hotel), I was extremely pleased with the location, the furnishings, the layout, and the bed comfort. The utilities worked perfectly (cooling, hot water, lighting). There were no drafts, odors, or structure issues. The residential setting provided a quiet, private, and secure retreat for rest and relaxation. At the same time, it provided easy access to shopping and the 210 freeway. Finally, the property owner (Ginny) was extremely gracious, thorough, and communicated quickly from the point of reservation, arrival, and departure. I highly recommend this property for business or personal travel.

Wonderful house and property and very friendly owner.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for me and my children. The house is charming, perfect size for 4, and includes access to a very nice patio, pool and hot tub. The house comes stocked with coffee, cream, sugar, condiments, etc. The dog Buddy was so fun to have around, and he greeted us every morning when we opened the door. The house is in a nice quiet location, but close to Pasadena, Huntington Gardens, freeway access, etc. The host was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful property and best host

  • 5 of 5

Ginny was the best hostess ever. On the night we arrive she left all the lights on to make sure we could make it back to the beautiful guest house. The fresh flowers and good coffee were a perfect welcome. The area is beautiful and Buddy her dog is super sweet and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
