Be smart! Many of the new listings in Pasadena are owned by folks who really just want your money. We own several vacation rentals listed on VRBO and have years of experience making our clients happy. Read the reviews and look at the maps. Many other properties listed here aren't actually in Pasadena. And most are not very close to Old Pasadena. Our properties are right where you want to be!
This historic purpose-built triplex offers three distinct options in the heart of Pasadena's most famous neighborhood. The Quarters at Waverly Green is a new option for our guests and has undergone extensive restorations. Both light-filled and private, it features our signature look with antiques and contemporary furnishings in a modern playful mix. It has one private bedroom and a very comfortable queen convertible wallbed in the spacious living area. The 'Murphy Bed' has traditional queen mattress and can be stored away for additional living space. This upscale property features high quality bedding, pillows and comforters, an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, formal dining room, flat screen TV with DirecTV, and high speed WiFi internet access. Vast gardens mature shade trees, and inviting outdoor spaces complete the scene.
Just one block from Wrigley Mansion and the Tournament of Roses House, the property is within the Rose Parade formation area and a short stroll to the shops and vibrant nightlife of Old Town Pasadena, Brookside Park and golf course, and the Rose Bowl. Your private retreat features dramatic views of the skyline and majestic San Gabriel Mountains and the valley beyond.

Enjoy all the excitement of Pasadena’s venerable Old Town neighborhood in a location central to the entire Los Angeles basin. Waverly Green is less than 10 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Studio City and the Burbank Studios. All of which can be accessed by easy connections with the Metro Gold Line or by car on the famous local freeways system. Can be combined with other units for additional space.
Waverly Green was constructed in 1946 and exhibits the attributes of the time: original double-hung picture frame windows, classic molding, period detailing, warm hardwoods and ceramic tile flooring. All of the main systems, like plumbing and air conditioning, have been upgraded to today’s standards and the kitchens and baths are freshly renovated.
With the charm and character of the period comes the personality of an older home: creaking floors and the patina of timeworn wood and painted surfaces. We believe that this charm adds to the livability of the space and is not considered to be problematic. Adding to the effect are antiques and art objects from around the world. If you like your curtains to match the bedspread, you might want to stay in a guestroom at one of the many local commercial hotels. Waverly Green is a self catering unit. Expendables like paper plates, paper towels and bath products are not provided unless left behind by another party. Save a tree and enjoy your stay.

We spent a great week at Waverly Green and can't tell you how much we loved the location. When we first drove down Waverly drive, we felt like we were headed to our own private Southern California mansion. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The beds were extra comfortable too. We will be back.
Great place. Tasteful decor, clean and well stocked. Outdoor space very pleasant. On a quiet street but centrally located. Close to Rose Bowl Aquatic center (great for a swim). Would definitely stay again!
We enjoyed our month-long stay in Pasadena. A neighborhood of beautiful homes and an easy walk to Colorado for coffee houses and restaurants. The apartment - top floor of a triplex - was as advertised and priced appropriately. Tastefully furnished and up to date appliances in the kitchen, comfortable beds, a nice backyard. Two things to keep in mind for other prospective renters: There are stairs involved and - for the noise sensitive - we could hear the tv and some conversations of the couple in the unit below us (and they were a quiet couple.) With those caveats we would recommend this property.
4 adults shared this 2 bedroom apartment. What a lovely time we all had in the Pasadena/Los Angeles area. Apartment just as described and photos are an accurate representation. We would all definitely come back and stay at Waverly Drive again. There really were no negatives other than for 4 adults the towel supply was a little skimpy. Apartment located on a lovely street and minutes from freeway. Have lived in the US for over 40 years and this is this our first time in Pasadena, what a lovely area. Family from Wales were visiting, their primary reason to go to the Breeders Cup horse races, hence our trip. Very convenient to get to Arcadia. Lots of choices for eating out and weather outstanding, I guess that is a given for this area. John also very responsive to emails etc.
Location, location, location......this property is in a lovely neighborhood where we could walk to Old Town pasadena and drive anywhere. it is about 4-6 minutes drive to the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center for a great place to swim while visiting. kitchen was well equipped and space was bright and cheery. When we did have a minor problem we emailed the owner and problem was immediately attended to. Actually lots of space. We would definitely stay here again as we felt like it really was our home away from home.
I was in Pasadena on business and stayed at Bright Light at Waverly Green two separate weekends. This property is everything you see in the photos beautiful, clean, bright and well stocked in the kitchen (except both times I stayed I had to go out to buy sponges to wash the dishes, dishwasher doesn't work). The owner has impeccable taste, which makes it a delight to rent. I highly recommend this property as your home away from home!
