Overview

Pasadena Condo Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Two Bedroom Flat in Triplex on 1/2 Acre of Grounds - All New 1.5 Baths

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 Standard at Waverly Green is a spacious ground-floor unit featuring antiques and contemporary furnishings in a modern playful mix. It has two generously scaled bedrooms both with queen size beds a newly renovated luxury bath and separate powder room. This upscale property features high quality bedding, pillows and comforters, a fully appointed vintage style kitchen with all the goodies, formal dining room and a flat screen TV with Uverse and 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.

50% deposit is due with the reservation. Your initial deposit is fully refundable up to 60 days before check-in dates. A $200 security deposit and all fees for the rental are due 30 days prior to Check-in date.

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.

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.

My wife, son (15 years old), and I stayed at Waverly for four nights in late March. It surpassed my expectations: the owners are super-great, beautiful neighborhood, and a large and comfortable back yard. When we return to Pasadena, this is where we’ll stay. (I got to check out the adjacent one-bedroom, which has a much larger kitchen – this is where I would stay if I didn’t need two bedrooms).

The Standard at Waverly

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent two months at The Standard at Waverly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will not hesitate to return for our next trip to the Pasadena area. The unit is well furnished, in excellent condition and very clean and comfortable. It's in an ideal location, close to Old Town Pasadena as well as to several freeways making trips around the LA area convenient. The owners are great people and very responsive to any request.

Feels like Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Waverly Green in December. The condo is uniquely decorated, comfortable, cozy and stocked with everything you would ever need! It is located in a lovely area of Pasadena. This will definitely be our "go to" place in Pasadena. Two more trips are in the planning stages and I am hopeful that the unit will be available for us. John made us feel very much at home. A most accommodating and hospitable owner.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent 10 days at Waverly Green visiting family in So. Pas. The apartment was wonderful-clean, quiet, tastefully decorated and well stocked. The back yard/patio area was a delightful place for quiet reading and/or socializing. Location was ideal as one could walk to Old Town in Pasadena with it's museum, restaurants and retail stores. John was very pleasant but little to do as there were no problems.

Looking forward to visiting again next year.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at Waverly Green. The condo was beautifully decorated, clean, bright and cheerful. I especially enjoyed the well-manicured back yard. This is my second stay at Waverly Green and I would highly recommend it. John was very helpful in answering questions. We had no complaints-just a beautiful and restful stay.
