Hi future guests,
Welcome to the page of our house! I’m the host Carina, 27 years old and learning Computer Science right now. ☺ My boyfriend Robert and I bought the brand new house, which was built in 2017, a few months ago; hence, all of the appliances and furniture are brand new. I believe that you will love our contemporary decorates, fancy decorations, and beautiful backyard with a lemon tree (you can pick free lemons every day) in our house if you choose to stay here. LOL.

The space

In order to give you a wonderful experience staying here, we are providing everything you need including water, cup, towel, tissue, toothbrush, comb, shower cap, toilet paper, hair dryer, cloth steamer, shampoo, body lotion, and hair conditioner. You only need to bring your own toothpaste and clothes to here.
We have four parking lots in the backyard and garage that other houses don’t have. Oh, I forget to say that, we are using password locks, so you don’t need to have any keys, and you also can lock and open your bedroom with passwords, which means that if you want, you don’t need to meet me at all (although I will feel so sad about it haha).
I think the only disadvantage of the bedrooms of our house is that we only have shared bathrooms; however, you can still use 2.5 shared bathrooms in the house, and these bathrooms are near your bedroom too. I believe these bathrooms are enough for your use, and we will keep clean them every few days to keep them as clean as private bathrooms.
We are so happy that you are interested in our private bedrooms! Don’t hesitate to ask any questions to me, and I always reply your messages in five minutes since I’m can’t stop to use social medias every day, LOL.

Guest access

Our guests can use the living room and dining room, microwave and refrigerator in the kitchen (with dishes, bowls, and other things you need), and washer and dryer on the second floor (we apply detergent and softener). And I have to say that our refrigerator, washer, and dryer are the best in the store. :)

Interaction with guests

Robert and I will try our best to solve any problems you have during your stay, and we are happy to do that. You can ask me directly, or text me if you are shy, I will reply as soon as possible since we want you to feel happy. :)

Other things to note

I know that you are all nice and beautiful people, but before you book the room, I have to notice you some important things:
We have a very cute tabby cat Mickey that lives in her castle in the living room right now, tell me if you feel ok or not to stay with the cat just in the public area. If you can't, we can let her in her cage during your stay T T.
Our bed is very firm because of the high quality. However, some people feel that it's a little hard for them, please consider it before you decide to come here.

Carina and Robert were really good hosts. The house is very nice, all new and clean. I was able To park my car inside the house and do laundry as well at no extra cost. Pretty safe for the belongings since rooms can only be access by codes.

Carina's place is really great, which she shares with her boyfriend Robert. Overall, I have to say that this is one of the nicest stays I've had on airbnb. The room is very, very clean, and there's an extra touch of thoughtfulness that comes through in how they prepare the room for you. The laundry and bathrooms are near the bedroom, so it's very convenient for both short-term and long-term stays. It's in a convenient location within a 10 minute driving distance to Old Town, and about a five minute drive to Lake Ave. The place is quiet, and the house is brand new. Carina and Robert are both very sweet people. I really enjoyed meeting them and talking with them. She's still trying to figure this out, but I can tell that she genuinely wants to learn as she goes along. If there's something that's not working for you during your stay, I recommend that you share it with her during your stay. She'll be responsive. The bedroom has a combo lock on it, so that you have a sense of safety there. The bed is firm, and felt to me like a fairly high-end bed. I like firm beds, so I had a few great nights' sleep there. If you like your bed soft, then you might consider staying somewhere else. I stayed for about three or four nights, and I would gladly stayed for a month if I had to. It's just very easy to live there, I found. While Carina and Robert are friendly, they're also happy to give you your space. One thing though. If you're not a good driver, parking might make you nervous as pulling out of their driveway might take a little getting used to. Or if you're a little hesitant in your driving abilities, you might ask if you can use one of the garage spaces, as pulling out from there would be a straight line. Overall, it was a great stay.

Carina's place is very nice but the amenities need work. The bed was terribly uncomfortable and the room quite warm and loud (due to traffic noise) in the morning. When I reached out to Carina privately over email to offer my feedback and request a partial refund prior to writing a public review, she didn't even respond. I'm a big Air B and B user, it's the only thing I do. This was an unusual experience. I hope that Carina takes this feedback seriously and improves her customer relations. I would have been happy with even the common courtesy of a response to my email.

Response from Carina:
I have to explain about this review. The guest asked me for a refund or he will leave a bad review. I felt that it was a threat and that's why I didn't reply the message. He said the bedroom was too hot, but he didn't even try to turn on the AC, and he opened windows and said it was too noisy.(the window is not facing the street). Also, we bought the most expensive mattress of the store so that the mattress is firm (I should tell him before he came, it's my fault). I totally understand that sometimes people have different feelings about the same place, but during the whole time, he never tried to communicate with me to solve these problems except asked for a refund after he left. Even though I don't want to receive any bad reviews, but I will not budge on the point.

Carina and Robert are the nicest people in Pasadena. It is not an exaggeration! The house is amazing, everything is brand-new. It is really easy to find, and pretty close to the the Caltech Campus and to many shops and restaurants. The Wi-fi is pretty fast, the bedrooms and bathrooms are quite nice. You can also hang out in the living room and use the kitchen. There is enough space for cars as well. The neighborhood is good. My communication with Carine went smoothly. She replied really fast to my messages and sent me additional info when necessary. Carina and Robert respect the privacy of their guests, but you can also socialize and meet cool people. So, if you happen to go to Pasadena, do not hesitate to book with Carina! You will feel comfortable at their place! :)

Very nice host, clean house, Carina communicated with me really quickly when I made a last minute booking request. The shower water was not warm and no wifi, but I believe she was just moving in when we stayed and still getting things set up.
