This was our second stay at Mandy's lovely spot. Clean, comfortable, private, bright and airy, in a nice and quiet neighborhood, easily walkable to shops and restaurants. Easy and clear communication. We'll keep returning here when we are in the area.

Mandy's place was beautiful and she is a great host. The Huntington Library and Gardens are not to be missed and are a short bike ride away. We had a very relaxing time and will definitely be back!

Mandy's place is just as it is pictured. It is in a very quiet neighborhood but located just a 5 minute walk to South Lake Street which has many shops and places to eat. I loved sitting poolside. Mandy is a gracious host (had fruit, milk, bagels and other staples available) and if you are looking for a quiet, comfortable place in Pasadena I would highly recommend it to you.
