About Marla K Bechtel
Lover of life, travel, adventure and meeting new people from around the world. I am a very easy going, outgoing and relaxed person…I consider myself to be a very positive person and love surrounding myself with beautiful things…I love my garden and take pride in my numerous rose bushes and fruit trees…Spring is my favorite time of year when everything in the garden is new and in bloom. I grew up in San Diego…but left at 20 to live and work in London. I ended up traveling all over Europe and was in London for about 4 years. I then moved to Vancouver, Canada to attend film school…and moved to LA…I have been here for almost 20 years and I love it. I know lots of hidden treasures and fun places to go off the beaten path here in LA and Pasadena and would love to share my city knowledge with people visiting from out of town. I know what it’s like to take a trip and be away from the creature comforts of home…and I would really like my home to provide you all the comforts and luxury of being in a true home so it's makes your trip all that much more fun and relaxing. I love the outdoors and love hiking, sailing, stand up paddle most of all, I am avid bicyclist. I did a 100 mile ride to raise money for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Foundation a few years ago and I got hooked! There's a great ride from my house down to The Rose then it's 3.2 miles around the of fun! There's also many wonderful hiking trails here in the San Gabriel Mountains to explore.. I work in film editing and have worked for numerous popular tv series like Ray Donovan, Preacher, Desperate Housewives, Bates Motel, etc… I am also a entrepreneur and am working on an app - hope to have it in the App Store by summer 2020…Very Exciting!! I love meeting new people from all over the world and look forward to a wonderful experience on airbnb. Carpe Diem!
Why Marla K Bechtel chose Pasadena
My home is a perfect example of what makes Pasadena such a unique and charming town. The neighborhood is quiet and serene with wonderful mountain views and yet close to everything that Pasadena and the surrounding areas has to offer.

Great Place for a stay in Pasadena
Marla was very helpful throughout the process. She was quick to respond, proactive, and informative. Check-in/out was a breeze. The house is comfortable and well-decorated with a big back area. I would stay here again next time I'm in Pasadena!
Thanks for the nice review Kevin! I am so glad you had a nice time at my home. Thanks for being wonderful guests... Please come back any time!
Postcard home on postcard street
Thoughtful touches like fresh flowers and a few basics in the fridge. Wonderfully pleasant patio with avocado and orange trees surrounding a well manicured back yard. Ample parking for two vehicles. Comfy furniture and beds. Functional kitchen and cozy light filled breakfast room. Very quiet neighborhood, but still close to CalTech. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for the fabulous review! I am so happy you and your family enjoyed my home during your recent trip to Pasadena.
Thanks you for being the PERFECT guests - You are welcome back any time!
Beautiful home and gorgeous neighborhood
First I’d like to say thank you to the owner for being so responsive and communicating quickly. Secondly, the house, she went out of her way to make the house very cozy, the fridge was stocked, extremely clean, fresh flowers in almost every room. Amazing job!
Thank you Ari!
It was a pleasure to host you! Thank you for being such a perfect
guest...I would love to have you back to stay any time!
Myself and 4 classmates spent two nights in Marla’s home. The house is fully equipped with everything we needed. Loved the pink and black bathroom! Perfect for sharing with girlfriends. The neighborhood is beautiful. Marla was very accommodating letting us check in early and check out late. So nice to have breakfast goodies supplied. I would definitely rent from Marla again.
Thank you so much for the lovely review. I really enjoyed hosting you and your classmates for your reunion - and I am so pleased you enjoyed the house. You were the PERFECT guests - Please come back anytime!!

Golden Girls Trip
After planning a “Golden” Girls Trip to LA and booking three hotel rooms, I realized that a home to complement our personalities would be a much better fit for me and my friends. While researching all of the glitz and glam homes in LA, I came across this charming, beautiful home in Pasadena. Marla revealed her style of shabby chic with a modern twist…and we LOVED it! We planned five days of city tours and activities, but once we checked in to this quaint neighborhood, we did not want to leave! We have taken trips before, and made a pact of the three “NOs” – no cooking, no work, and no all-day lounging. This is a home away from home…equipped with all of the essentials. On Day 1, Marla had the fridge stocked with breakfast items and fresh cut sunflowers, which forced us to break our entire NO” rules. Marla supplied everything from metro schedules to menus and city and museum brochures. If we needed anything, Marla was just a text away. Coming to California – three women, of course we were concerned about security. This is not necessary in this home. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the neighbors were very friendly. We took daily walks. The nearest market was less than a half mile….and the mountain views are to die for! The backyard was our cool, evening spot for sipping on sweet tea and sharing our girl talks! What a very comfortable and relaxing home. This was a great experience of Cali! Thank you, Marla!
Thank you sooo much for the very sweet review...It's nice to be appreciated for the extra touches as I really try and make an effort to make my guests feel at "home" during their stay.
I am so happy that you and your friends had a great time and enjoyed the house and the backyard. And, I was so happy to know that you were able to change your flights to miss the hurricane ....Phew!
You were the PERFECT guests - and thank you for leaving everything so tidy.
Please come back to Pasadena any time!
