Loved the property, although it was a little dark, the small garden was rarely usable due to very noisy work directly next door where they were building a small block of flats. This also blocked the sun from the garden. The local area was quite run down. Further to walk to beach than anticipated. We would have appreciated being warned about the noise/dust level before committing to this property. The result was we felt very confined indoors, all windows and doors had to remain closed during day to block out noise and dust. We feel that financial compensation would be appropriate as we were not told in advance of the ongoing work next door. It did affect our enjoyment of our stay.
Traveled to Pasadena with my wife and parents for my son's graduation from APU this December. The patio with the outdoor fireplace comfortable furniture and lights helped make the graduation party a lot of fun. We did not use the pool but enjoyed the hot tub. The Polynesian decor is a little over the top but works, the neighborhood is very pleseant and the location convenient. Owners were friendly and helpful, enjoyed our stay very much.
