I am a former engineer who discovered Pasadena when I moved here to work for NASA. I am now a real estate agent and property manager in the Pasadena area. I love to travel.

Kristan Evans purchased this townhome in 2007

Our home is convenient to everything! We love being in the city. Our unit is in the back of the complex, off the street and quiet. Pasadena always has something going on - music in the park, festivals, Rose Bowl flea market and sporting events, and so much more! There's swimming at the Aquatic Center, architectural tours of the Gamble House and Pasadena Historical Society, Brook-side Golf Course, hiking, bike riding and mountain biking, great shopping, great variety of restaurants, and non-stop fun for everyone!

I love this secret gem, because it's plain on the outside and fabulous on the inside! It has lots of space. This is our home. I love to have breakfast on the balcony early in the morning, then walk to the park and listen to the parrots in the trees. I love the look of the mountains as the sun comes up. Sunsets are great, too. Pasadena is an easy place to live, with every convenience and so many family-friendly activities to choose from.

VERY DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE.

  • 1 of 5
This property was misrepresented from the terms of the contract to the description.
1. The condo was not clean nor set up for the number of people we had listed on our contract.
2. Gated community? A gate is always left open voiding any security benefits of a gated community.
3. Very small, dirty deck with no furniture from which to enjoy the near dead rose garden.
4. Security lock box, where we were told to leave key whenever we were away, opened with any combination. Owners sensitive, financial documents were left in the open.
5. Pet odor and general mustiness. The carpets dirty and the living room furniture is worn and soiled. The refrigerator/freezer had leftover food and old condiments. The dishes felt greasy and were crusted with dried food particles. The garbage disposal and dishwasher backed up into the sink. Owner did respond to this issue by calling in a plumber but the dishwasher never worked adequately. Oven filthy.
6. We had listed 11 guests on the extensive contract we signed with the Owner, however the condo only had six fresh towels and the two inflated mattresses we were promised were not in the unit. They were delivered a few days later and two stained and musty smelling sheets were provided for our use. I ended up buying a set as we found only one set that seemed freshly washed.
7. Every closet was stuffed beyond capacity with only one partial closet for our 11 guests to hang clothes. There were no dressers.
8. The single lofted bed in the "office" is uncomfortably close to the ceiling and the ceiling fan blades extend beyond the sides of the bed and actually spin over the mattress.
9. Advertised as a “No Pets” property, one bedroom was nearly uninhabitable due to pet/urine odor and pet hair. We had to use air freshener daily as well as run an air purifier in the room. We vacuumed but vacuum smelled so foul it was almost worse. Had to keep child with pet allergy out of room.
10. Shower curtain in one bathroom was largely stained with dark mildew. Every cupboard in every bathroom was filled beyond capacity.
11. Though never mentioned in the contract we signed, had to wash/dry/fold all the linens. Impossible as the washing machine did not spin dry. Required to clean the condo, which we did. We left the unit better than we found it yet our deposit was not returned and we were never given a reason why.

PASADENA BARGAIN

  • 2 of 5
VRBO Stayed May, 2014

This VRBO offers a budget friendly option for a large family group visiting Pasadena, CA. There is excellent access to the limited public transportation available and the property is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood.
This is not a “traditional” VRBO however, so it will not be a fit for everyone. Please be advised that those with mobility issues may face some challenges. There are 4 levels to this unit including the garage and stairs must be climbed to enter the unit. There are no dressers available for clothing and the seating in the kitchenette consisted of 2 chairs and 6 stools. Also, the kitchen was not as clean or as orderly as we are used to.
Our VRBO hostess was very friendly and checked on us during our stay. We were very pleased to have found this unusual property that is priced so well.

QUICK...GET THIS ONE BEFORE IT'S GONE!!!

Quick...Get This One Before It's Gone!!!
  • 5 of 5
This house met our needs perfectly! We were in Pasadena for a family wedding and needed space for 8 people to be able to spread out comfortably. The house was centrally located to everything we needed and just minutes away from all the happenings in Old Town Pasadena. Public transportation is within walking distance, too! Located on a quiet, tree-lined street, this place is perfect for families with children. The owner was very accommodating and helpful during the rental proces, during our stay and even afterward by quickly refunding our deposit. We felt welcome when we arrived and found the house clean, well-appointed, spacious and well-stocked with food, which we were encouraged to eat. We will definitely check availability when we return to the area for family vacations!

BEST PLACE FOR THE PRICE IN PASADENA

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great time. The owner was nice and took care of all our needs. There was plenty of space for the whole family to sleep and with 2 extra air mattress. It was close to all hot spots in old Pasadena. You can't beat the price compare to the expensive hotels around. It is a secret gem.
