About the property

Large 550 sq ft entertainment/sleeping area with loft, 3/4 BR, sleeps 3 - 4

Nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains is a tropical oasis awaiting your arrival. Why spend hours flying to Hawaii when you can enjoy tropical South Seas ambiance in Pasadena. Located in Historic Highlands, a quiet Pasadena residential neighborhood two miles north of downtown Pasadena, this studio/loft has lots of charm and character. The neighborhood is great for walking with beautiful tree lined streets. The rental comes complete with exclusive use of outdoor dining area, swimming pool (unheated), fire ring, and heated spa.

Pasadena, located 9 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, is a vibrant city, rich in history and culture, and home to the world famous New Year’s Day Tournament of Roses. Average year round temperature is 76 F daytime to 54 F nighttime. You are minutes away from many sports and recreation areas, and 30 to 60 minutes from all the major Los Angeles attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Whether you like to swim, paddle around, sun bathe, sit and think or sit and soak in the sunshine, the facility is absolutely perfect for relaxing.



If you like to be inside watching TV or reading, it's great, too (more stations than I could count).



Quiet neighborhood. Close to Pasadena's Old DownTown and plenty of attractions nearby.



Attractions nearby, yes. But you can get your full value just by staying around and enjoying the premises.



Thank you for a great stay.

Polynesian Paradise in Pasadena

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Pasadena with my wife and parents for my son's graduation from APU this December. The patio with the outdoor fireplace comfortable furniture and lights helped make the graduation party a lot of fun. We did not use the pool but enjoyed the hot tub. The Polynesian decor is a little over the top but works, the neighborhood is very pleseant and the location convenient. Owners were friendly and helpful, enjoyed our stay very much.

Wonderful Tiki Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of three- with a nine-year old) stayed for four days at the turn of the New Year and had the best time. All was exactly as advertised- beautifully appointed tiki bungalow with a loft space, hot tub and pool. The accommodations are around the back from the owner's residence- but they provided all the privacy we desired (and tips/recommendations when needed). We look forward to staying here on our next visit to the Pasadena area.

  • 4 of 5

It was my birthday/Christmas celebration and it was quite a surprise. We enjoyed every amenity, jacuzzi and pool was wonderful; even though it rained few days, jacuzzi worked perfectly and pool very inviting providing a very relaxing experience. I will consider this place first for my next trip to Pasadena, which I visit 3 or 4 times a year.

Comfortable, Easy & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great place to come back to after a long day/night out and about - comfortable, clean, and quiet.

The hostess, Jama, met us soon after we arrived to see if we had any questions - otherwise, it felt like we had our own little compound.

Convenient location - a short Uber ride to downtown Pasadena and the Rose Bowl.

I would definitely stay here again.

Winter Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a completely wonderful time staying in this beautiful oasis surprisingly tucked into the city of Pasadena. A lovely, quiet spot with comfortable indoor seating, sleeping & kitchen - AND a very natural, beautiful, calming outdoors, including a pool (which the December weather was not conducive to getting into this visit) and a hot tub which was perfect for the cool December weather! We will definitely be back!

This is a wonderful get away !! Nestled in the hill side of Pasadena but very close to downtown !!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely give it a 5 star !!! It isn't our first visit we are returning fans! Our host were very accommodating there when we needed them but left us alone to enjoy !! Perfect for us to cook small meals and save on eating out !! Very clean and a fun decor, The out side is a beautiful Tropical oasis !! Enjoyed the hot tub !! It's was to cool for the pool but beautiful!! Will definitely return !! Only thing that could make it any better would be a washer and dryer !! With the expense of the airline it would make it so helpful to be able to do laundry !!
