Cute, cozy and perfect location
Wonderful little place within walking distance to Caltech and lake street. Cynthia made everything so easy. She even stocked it with eggs, bagels, milk and coffee which made a delicious breakfast for our first morning. We will definitely stay there again
We enjoyed our stay in Pasadena. The little bungalow met our requirements for a “walkable” location and was perfect for the 3 of us. Any more, however, and we’d have felt crowded. The homeowner was responsive and helpful. Parking was a bit confusing as the space was shared with another bungalow and it seems they didn’t expect to share, though we’d been assured in advance there was plenty of room for our 3 vehicles. Also would have been helpful to know this bungalow is not on the street, but is down a driveway behind the other house. On the whole, a good experience and we’d rent this bungalow again.
Clean, comfortable, convenient... perfectly suited to our needs
This 2 bedroom bungalow met the needs of our frequent VRBO usage. Since our son moved years ago to the west coast from being raised in Northeast we have had to relocate Christmas festivities as he deepened roots with a growing family that made it a challenge to travel. This bungalow , 8 minutes from his house in San Gabriel allowed us to be present for the birth of a Christmas grand daughter, without intruding. It provided a quiet, well laid out space for my husband and I and our adult daughter to have our own privacy to unwind during hectic holiday AND birthing preparations It has an eclectic , unfussy, comfortable French country vibe with a layout that allowed each of the three of us the space to chill and unwind from the holiday and birthing excitement. The beds were comfortable from mattress to linens.It is walking distance to stores and restaurants when we did not feel like cooking in the amply supplied kitchen or we needed a last minute gift.. The basics, from utensils to kitchen staples were all there, not to mention the lovely treats of wine, eggs, cookies, milk, and butter which welcomed us after a long travel adventure. Wifi worked well and parking was off road and never an issue. But the most appreciated amenity was the availability of the hosts, Cynthia and Bruno who were immediately responsive when the VRBO app did not always deliver the expected information. In all our VRBO experiences, this has been one of our easiest and most personable and comfortable stays. If my son does not relocate yet again, we will most definitely plan on staying here on our next extended visit.
Great bungalow for a family gathering
We loved this quiet bungalow! We were visiting our son, a grad student at Caltech, for Thanksgiving. The kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans, and gadgets for cooking, and the living room was perfect for our board games. The place is immaculate. I highly recommend it!
Reunion at Quiltcon
Three friends met for a quilt convention. The minute we walked in, we were captured by the nostalgic setting of our bungalow. It is very clean and the provided "welcome food" surprises delighted us. Bruno, our host, is steps away and made us feel like we were visiting family cousins. The bungalow is close to our favorite food stores, the convention center and Cal Tech. It is a very private (off the street) setting. We would definitely re-book here if we are in Pasadena again.
Great place to stay
The bungalow was fantastic. It is very well maintained and really nice inside. The beds were very comfortable. Very close to downtown Pasadena. Cynthia was great, she has the bungalow well stocked and she was very helpful. Yes, she does provide fresh eggs!

Do not be surprise to find local organic eggs in your welcome basket and with a little luck a local tour in our Traction Avant almost as old as the cottage....
The house is located a block from Cal Tech, two blocks from South Lake shopping District. Less than a mile from the Historic Langham Hotel founded by the Huntingtons. A little over a mile from the Huntington Library in San Marino which is a lovely walk.

A mile further is the famed Norton Simon Museum with Old Town Pasadena's exciting venues of bars and wonderful restaurants.
The historic Santa Anita Race Track is but a 10 minute drive, and we are 5 blocks from the Rose Parade route on Colorado Blvd. and 3 miles from the Rose Bowl.
If you like hiking, the trails at the top of Lake Avenue will be a delight with spectacular views of Southern California, including Catalina Island.
