THE LITTLE HOUSE ON HOWARD STREET

Pasadena House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The Little House on Howard Street is a historic 1923 house that has been completely rebuilt to take full advantage of its unique size. This cozy nest of 280 square feet was built as a stand-alone house and is now the perfect place to spend the week in Pasadena for a single traveler or couple.

Inspired by the “compact” house movement that has taken shape over recent years, the Little House on Howard Street offers an excellent example of efficiency and elegance. Stylishly furnished with modern and traditional craftsman furniture and art, it is the perfect alternative to a hotel. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant for walking, and it is a five-minute drive to all that Pasadena has to offer – world-class museums, outstanding colleges and universities, top-rated restaurants and shopping, historic Old Town, hiking and other outdoor activities, and the Rose Bowl.

The house has a newly rebuilt kitchen with a two burner gas stove, small refrigerator, combination microwave/convection oven for roasting and baking, coffee maker, and toaster. We also offer WiFi, cable television, iPod stereo dock, washer and dryer, air conditioning/heater, peaceful covered deck, and the privacy of staying in your own house.

The Little House on Howard Street is less than 15 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Burbank, which can all be accessed by easy connections with the Metro Gold Line or by freeway, one of which is the newly restored historic Arroyo Parkway, the nation’s first freeway.

Shortly after he bought it, he got married and he and his wife, Liz, decided to completely renovate the house and create a lovely, cozy vacation rental. Todd is the owner/operator of Hughes Estate Sales an antique, art, and fine furnishings liquidation service and Liz is a filmmaker and non-profit consultant.

Wonderful view a bonus!
We had a great time. The little extra touches were great.... restaurant recommendations, parking pass, coffee, soaps and even popcorn!
Thank you for making it feel like a visit with family instead of just a place to stay.

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Little House for one week, using it as a base to explore the area before our daughter graduated from Scripps College. It was everything we could have wished for. Delightful and well appointed----even a french press for fresh brewed coffee! Never felt we needed to get anything other than groceries for our stay. It is compact, but the layout is very clever in the use of space. It is obvious that the owners are very caring for and attentive to this property. When we had a problem with the front door lock, they fixed it that same day. Highly recommend this for anyone looking for a comfortable and unique experience.

A Delightful, Well-Equipped House

  • 4 of 5
We spent 5 weeks while I was doing sabbatical research. We were amazed at how well the house was designed and how well we were able to set up a household in such a tight space. The location was great! I enjoyed running in the Angeles National Forest just 15 minutes from the front door. The only down side was that the chairs were not very comfortable for several hours of sitting. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed many gourmet meals. Having a washer/dryer was an extra special touch.

Small but perfect

  • 5 of 5
We spent over a week at this charming little house and had a wonderful stay. It's small but extremely functional, well decorated and well equipped. It was a real pleasure to have breakfast every morning on the back deck, surrounded by plants. The owners even made sure there was a portable baby bed for our little baby. The location might seem a little remote for some, but it's not far from the freeway. We would definitely stay here again.

Sitting on the back porch as I write!

  • 5 of 5
I was anticipating a nice, clean, comfortable place based upon the photos, but the Little House FAR exceeds my expectations. The house is truly perfect, very well situated geographically (easy freeway access, etc.) So comfortable and well-appointed that it is far better than any hotel could be. Yes it is compact, but when one really thinks about how we use space, it's just good design. Liz's touches (great sheets and towels, thoughtful amenities) make this even more special.

I'm here for a long stay, so the ability to "set up housekeeping" is very important--I've now found my new home base when I'm in LA! Only problem is, now this review will make it impossible for me to book this all the time!

Thanks for sharing your lovely nest with me.

quality comfort

  • 5 of 5
i could tell from the pictures that this place was small but i was really impressed with the set up. i stayed here with my husband and we both seemed to forget how small the space was. there was a comfortable sitting area for reading and watching tv and another area set up outside for sitting where we enjoyed having coffee each morning. i was impressed with the quality of this little home and the decor. the bath towels were super soft too. sometimes it's the little things that count. i really appreciated the attention to detail! i will definitely be back!!
