Kara & Loop's home is a very spacious, comfortable, clean and well designed apartment ideally located. Very close and convenient to the freeway but also extremely quiet which was great for a good night's sleep. Kara was extremely helpful and communicative throughout the process and send us very helpful and detailed information on the apartment which helped out a lot. I would highly recommend this apartment to any AirBNB guest.

This is an amazing apartment, almost out of a movie set. It is much bigger than we expected and was perfect for our needs. Very comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything you could need. The towels, bed linens, and everything was really high quality - even more so that the typical Airbnb. Thanks to Kara and Loop for such a great stay!
I visit often to see my daughter.I planned this trip with my fiancé . I took time to become familiar with the site. I found half a dozen and more listings that were in close proximity to my daughter’s apartment. My criteria – privacy, clean, space, parking, close proximity to my daughter, rental, budget. This trip evolved into a 12 day trip , the first 4 nights in Pasadena. My fiancé and I decided we would marry while in Pasadena so that my daughter could be with us as we became husband & wife. I managed to plan it all but held off on the Pasadena rental. I kept checking in on Airbnb . Listings were coming and going. Some were startling as they detailed shared bathrooms (?) or the host in the rental with you ( for ladies I will sleep on the couch! WHAT?) I saw prices hike up. I noted some appeared to be homes full of personal items and so on. I also found many appropriate spaces but I held off until I was feeling a little panicked. I logged in one evening to make a commitment and found Kara & Loop’s Mid Century Private Escape, a new listing. I put it through my analysis . I did street view, sent to my daughter and fiancé . My daughter jogs. She checked out 2 of the 5 I was considering then and there . She sent me a text from her jog that read “ What are you waiting for?! Book this one now!” . I sent my request and received a response from Kara & Loop within an hour.
We arrived hauled our bags up broad concrete steps with ease to an open and private patio area with 2 entrances. We were able to leave them on the patio and relax. The patio has many plants, 2 chairs and a table is spacious and private.
The apartment welcomed us with a peaceful calm. The careful décor upheld the integrity of the interior design. The midcentury modern building design style brings to my mind Frank Lloyd Wright or Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, light and energy flow throughout. The fold out walnut cabinets in the galley kitchen stocked with lovely midcentury dishes and bar ware. The amazing turquoise oven worked well as did the range. The kitchen is roomy, well stocked with a lot of counter space. I was able to do my flowers to the right of the sink & prepare food keeping everything separate. Our host had fresh fruit waiting for us and other nice touches. Caldrea cleaning products in the kitchen and JR Watkins hand soap in the bath. My fiancé had our portable satellite hooked up to the RCA stereo in minutes. The bed a dream. Firm but with a pillow top. The bath stocked with plush towels, hand towels and wash cloths. There are double sinks & a lot of counter space .
I could live here. The host are exceptional!
Kara and Loop have created a really unique space, full of carefully chosen decor and knick knacks. I had a wonderful, restful time at their place. It's a great place to get work done and get away from the hustle of it all. Just a word of warning: others have written that the mattress is very comfortable and it is-- if you don't mind soft mattresses. I have a bad back and actually ended spending several nights on the floor to straighten myself out. Otherwise, a really pleasant stay!
We had a great time at this escape, and will definitely be back if we come to the area again. Loop is the king of planning and had us setup exactly as promised, as well as checking up with us every few days to see if we needed something with the house or the area (things to do, see, etc). Great communication prior, during, and after our stay to make sure we always had everything we needed. The house is really cool, has an awesome location, and felt just like home for us. Definitely recommend
I cannot say enough good things about my stay at Kara & Loops place. They were more than awesome, making sure I had a list of fun options to enjoy each day. I LOVE their place! It is chic and stylish. The bed was fabulously comfortable. So comfortable, I took a photo of the mattress tag so I could come home and buy one for myself. :) The office/den was excellent for me to get my work done. The bathroom was spacious with lots of counter room for all my beauty items, along with a double sink that is perfect for couples. I also enjoyed sitting outside on the private patio each morning, surrounded by colorful potted plants, and waking up with nature. The entire stay was lovely. I would definitely stay there again.I felt very at home and comfortable...highly recommend :)
This is the kind of place that makes airbnb so amazing. I was in LA on a work trip, so I stayed here and used the office every day for a week, including hosting meetings with clients, who were very impressed with the digs. The apartment is totally retro-cool, with the most painstakingly era-specific decor I've ever seen, plus the tastefully added modern amenities of wifi, an Apple TV-driven flatscreen and a powerful AC. The place is spotlessly clean, the bed is amazingly comfy and the shower gets piping hot. The private patio is a great place to enjoy a perfect SoCal evening.
I ate about half of my meals at the Gerlach's mexican/mediterranean seafood stand on the corner and loved every bite of it (veggies, check out the falafel sandwich, so yummy). Public transportation by rail or bus is easy from here, Old Town Pasadena is a 20 minute stroll away, and the one day I needed wheels I just walked across the street to the Enterprise rent-a-car and grabbed one.
To top off all that, Loop is the consummate host. Generous, communicative, super helpful, and always eager to please. I will certainly be coming back next time I'm in town.
Loop was an excellent guest! He was excellent with communication, very respectful of our home and left the place clean. Highly recommended!
Loop is funny, neat, and super easy to get along with. Plus he can quote american psycho! What's not to love?! He even brought us a bottle of wine! This guy is tops,
Excellent guest and we'll happily host him again. He was an excellent communicator and was very respectful of our space. We're glad he liked the VIA coffee!
