Overview

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.

Enjoy the exciting new restaurant scene in Pasadena and Altadena near the Howard House. AltaEats, Pizza of Venice, Lavender & Honey, Lincoln, The Eatery by Claude & Co., and El Patron are just a few of our favorites in the neighborhood. Not to mention all the great places in Old Town Pasadena and Downtown Los Angeles!

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.

Charming little house in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the little house for a few nights while visiting my daughter. The house was very well thought out with lots of high quality conveniences and charm. We had everything we needed including a great donut shop, coffe house and my daughter within walking distance in a pretty neighborhood. It is a good space for 1 or 2 people and an easy ride to Occidental College and Old Pasadena for the museums and shopping. We really enjoyed the Norton Simon Museum.

it might be nice to add a small corner shelf next to the bed for an alarm clock and book

Quiet respite

  • 5 of 5

The Little House was just what we needed after a day braving the crazy LA traffic! It was surprisingly quiet and so close to the mountains. Thanks for having a book on LA area hiking available. The house had everything we needed for our three-day stay and we loved having the back patio area to enjoy our morning coffee on. We were there to visit our son, who lives in Pasadena, so the location was perfect. Thanks for sharing!

Little House on Howard...Very, Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

The Little House was spotlessly clean and had everything necessary for my husband and I to stay for two weeks very comfortably. The location was neighborly, safe and every amenity top quality! My only recommendation would be to have a small couch and easy chair in the living-room instead of two chairs. After long days of fun, we just wanted to come home and put our feet up.

Thank you, Liz, for answering our phone requests so promptly. I do hope we can come again!

Cozy and quiet, just right

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Little House. It was clean, comfy and just right. We were able to walk to restaurants, grocery store, etc. It also had easy access to the Arboretum, the Huntington Museum, and plenty of other attractions. Mostly, it was a great place to hang out. Best, every morning, we were greeted by a flock of urban parrots. Loved it.

Great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for me, my husband and our one-year-old. It has been updated and is very clean. It also has an enclosed patio area that we loved!

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.
