Cute Cottage, Cute Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Nice cottage in a very cute neighborhood. The cottage is quite small, but functional with a lot of charm. Common areas are nice for sitting out in the evening.

Beware!

  • 1 of 5

This is a very small cottage. It is in the back of the house. Even though my husband smoked outside in the patio area, never in the house, we were accused of smoking in the house and damaging curtains, lamps, etc. dogs were welcome, and we paid for them as extra people. But, when we left them inside, they were too noisy. So, the rest of the time we put them in the back bedroom. We never cooked, and I washed all sheets, towels, mattress pad. Comforter was never used and placed in drawer. We never got our deposit, and were accused of leaving "dog soaked towels, comforter, pillows and shams. The only poop was, the big dog poop from their dog in the common area. I was shocked! After all the effort to take care of this property, as we have in the past with other rentals, I am very upset. Also, FYI, you have to go to the police station to buy a tag to put on your car each night, so you will not get a ticket. You can buy only three nights worth at a time. Not for smokers, people with dogs, or people that don't want to get ripped off by the owners of the property! Also, when I removed mattress pad to wash it, I noticed dried blood on the mattress. Eeew.

Owner's Response: Maureen's husband chain smoked inside of the Cottage for the entire 5 days. They left the cottage a mess for which we have had to hire an entire cleaning crew staff to mitigate the smoke smell and wash and sanitize everything in the cottage including walls, fabrics, etc... She arrived with two dogs trying to sneak them into the cottage without asking if she could even have a dog. We had to chase her for the money and acted she didn't understand the clear rules about dogs. The dogs barked loudly the entire 5 day stay. They peed on down comforters, towels and pillows. Maureen then hid the items ruined by her pets so we wouldn't immediately find them. The dog waste was left for us to clean up as well. We have never had to keep a deposit on a guest in four years of hosting families in our Cottage until now. She was punitive of our keeping deposit money, so she wrote an awful review.

Always Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time to stay in Kristen's cottage and I continue to love it!!! It is everything and more....that you see in her pictures and description!! There is always a warm and welcome feel as soon as you walk in the front door.!! I was so thankful the dates were open during the time I was in South Pasadena! It will always be my first choice😊?
