Lovely and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Virginia was a gracious hostess, and her dog, Buddy, a consummate greeter and fun companion. The guesthouse is nicely appointed and comfortable. Be sure to inquire about the beautiful peacocks that grace the roof! I hope to return as I often have business in Pasadena.

Exceeded our expectations !

  • 5 of 5

After originally booking a hotel I happen to come across this lovely rental and could not have been happier ! I’m sure there is no hotel room that could compare to our experience. I am a 57 yr old grandmother who was traveling with my 12 and 16 yr old grandsons for spring break. Our hostess was very welcoming and helpful throughout our visit. The location was quiet, convenient and lovely. The space is very clean and tastefully decorated. Having a kitchen space allowed was the flexibility to eat in. Included is a full size washer and dryer ! With all the add on charges hotels tack on this was a bargain plus you have your own private pool ! Comfort and safety of my grandchildren was huge for me during this trip. It was awesome to not have to worry about either and just relax. And Buddy the dog was the perfect visitor on a regular basis. We just left the door cracked open so he could come and go. Thanks Virginia for having us 🙂?

Beautiful property and very accommodating host

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. Very comfortable and the grounds are beautiful. I was greeted by Buddy, who turned out to be a real cutie. Unfortunately, Virginia was out of town, but Claudia was absolutely fantastic! I would definitely stay here again.

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!!
