We recently spent three nights at Nicholas and Irene's place. The hosts were gone during most of our stay but the brief encounter we had was pleasant. The cottage is small but has all the essentials needed to be comfortable. If you are eating in, there is limited dining space inside but a nice patio outside which should be comfortable most of the time in the SoCal climate. The Wifi signal is strong and there is a nice flat screen TV with DirectTV service. One of the reasons we picked this listing was the location. If you enjoy the outdoors, there are many parks and hikes nearby to enjoy. Downtown Pasadena is about a 10-15 minute drive away for shopping and dining adventures. Downtown LA is reachable via the Metro train from Pasadena. When it is time to go home, LAX is about an hour away.

This was my second visit to Nicholas and Irene's (URL HIDDEN) before, it was clean, quiet, comfortable with everything my dog and I needed for a perfect stay. I can highly recommend their place and will definitely stay again if I'm in the area.

We stayed at Nicholas & Irene's place for the weekend while we were in town for a wedding in La Canada Flintridge. Their place was the perfect location to stay in - just 15 minutes from the venue and anything else we needed, but far enough to be close to the mountains and feel like we got away from it all. Nicholas & Irene's place is the perfect size for 1-2 people (also included a sofa bed if you wanted to get cozy and invite more), sparkling clean, and the bed was so nice and comfortable. Their property is spacious and well kept, and when I met Irene in the carport, she was so nice and friendly - even inviting me to help myself to any eggs from their chickens! Overall really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
