Location was excellent. Facilities very good and it was a pleasant surprise to receive a welcome basket of wine, chips, salsa, biscuits and coffee. Can highly recommend this for a relaxing stay in Pasadena.- Kathleen M. from Bargara, Posted: 08/22/2018
Very nice clean place in great convenient location. Metro rail to downtown is right across the street, Trader Joe’s is literally steps away and getting to old town is walking distance. I stayed here for an event at the Pasadena Convention Center during the day and managed to see a concert at the Microsoft Center (right by the Staples Center).
Place was very clean, having 3 bathrooms is always great for everyone and the beds were comfortable. This unit also gets a lot of sunlight so it’s a very cheery home. I’d definitely stay here again if I’m back in town.- Anonymous , Posted: 12/05/2017
We were visiting family in Pasadena. The Madison was conveniently located and the garage made parking a breeze.The townhouse was exactly like the pictures and the kitchen was well equipped. We would definitely stay here again.- Anonymous from highland park, Posted: 05/02/2018
We wanted to visit Norton Simon and Huntington Gardens and museums. Great location. Quiet and walking distance to coffee and restaurants. Trader Joe's on the corner. Would recommend and stay. there again when in Pasadena. Management company is organized and can easily be contacted in case of problem/emergency though we had neither good to know.- jennifer e. from San Diego, Posted: 11/18/2022
We had a wonderful visit from start to finish. Instructions on how to enter the condo were easy and precise. The house was clean and the bedrooms were comfortable. It was the perfect space for my family. Location could not be beat either. thank you!- Catherine M. from Lexington, Posted: 04/08/2019
Place was lovely very clean just the right size- Kim M. from scranton, Posted: 03/17/2023
We had a great week in this little place. For a family with two children, it had everything we needed: pack n play, booster seat, washer and dryer. Very nice location for exploring Pasadena and getting to other points in LA. Highly recommended.- Clare L. , Posted: 09/04/2021
This is an excellent spot in a quiet neighborhood but still easy access to everything. Walking distance to grocery stores, pharmacy, restaurants and public transportation. Comfortable and clean and filled with everything you need.- Ben B. from Odenton, Posted: 09/17/2019
Such a comfortable townhome for our family to make as a home base before sending our son back to his job in Tokyo. In walking distance to Old Pasadena, restaurants, and shopping. We enjoyed our stay!- Anonymous from San Anselmo, Posted: 04/07/2023
The rental was roomy and bright. There were many stairs. To do laundry you had to walk downstairs to the garage. The bedrooms were on the second floor. I did not like the location of the garage which was difficult to exit and enter into an unattractive back alley. The Trader Joes nearby was a plus.- Anonymous from New Rochelle, Posted: 03/19/2019
A tidy, spacious townhouse at an excellent location. The kitchen was well stocked with flatware, dishes, cooking utensils, a coffee maker, tea kettle (not tea pot), and rice cooker. The bedrooms and bathrooms have plenty of extra blankets, towels and bed linens. A reasonable amount of basic consumables were provided, enough for my two-week stay (toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent, garbage bags) so I did not need to purchase any more. The location was very quiet and felt safe.- Anonymous from Lawrenceville, Posted: 09/04/2019
Beautiful little house in a perfect location. We walked just about everywhere. I would definitely recommend Kate and her home to future visitors.- Ty F. , Posted: 01/09/2018
The condo is beautiful and huge, it was very clean, and had all the amenities me and my family needed! And Kate was very responsive when we had questions! It’s a very nice neighborhood, just a 2 minute walk to a Trader Joe’s and <20 minute walk to old town Pasadena.- Nathaniel J from New York, NY, Posted: 02/26/2022
The Vrbo is in an excellent location in Old Pasadena. Lots of restaurants and stores nearby, and the unit itself was pleasant.- Andy C. from Cincinnati, Posted: 06/28/2022
This was the third time we have stayed at The Madison while visiting our daughter and her family in Pasadena. It’s roomy with 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. We love having the garage spot to park in. The location is great. We love walking to Trader Joe’s for groceries. We like The Madison so much that we just booked our 4th stay there!- Maria N. from Dallas, Posted: 11/15/2018
We had the best stay here at this condo! It was very clean, comfortable, and the location was great! We were there for my daughters Honor Choir at the Pasadena conference center and civic center and we walked there many times! We would highly recommend this place and would request to stay here again! Thank you!- Anonymous from Gilbert, Posted: 03/20/2018

Great location! Walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants and stores. The management comany was extremely responsive and helpful. Nice having a bathroom off each bedroom and half bath downstairs.- Anonymous from Arvada, Posted: 01/08/2019
We loved our stay at The Madison! It was perfect for my family of 5. It was very clean and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable! We fell in love with Pasadena and we felt that this condo was in the perfect location as it is within walking distance to local restaurants and we loved that Trader Joe’s was just down the street! It’s a short drive down the freeway to Dodger Stadium, Downtown or Universal Studios. You will not be disappointed by Pasadena or the Madison!- Jaclyn F. from Carlsbad, Posted: 07/09/2019
Great location in Pasadena, near Trader Joes, shopping, museums and easy freeway access to see all of LA County.Private gated entry with garage was nice and gave security.Very clean and bright condo, though outdated a bit with old carpet, BR and baths were cheerful and bright. Beds were comfortable.- Thomas W. from Muskegon, Posted: 07/19/2019
Super location that is within walking distance of Old Town Pasadena. Secure garage parking. Very comfortable unit.- Nora K. from Sandy, Posted: 10/16/2019
The condo was great. Clean and well stocked. Great location. Flowers, coffee and cookies were waiting for us when we checked in. Early morning walks through some beautiful streets a plus. Would definitely go back- Natalie L. from New Albany, Posted: 06/03/2023
The Madison was in a great location was perfect for our visit. We loved being able to just walk over to Trader Joe’s to buy our groceries. Having a garage to park in was so convenient. Also, there is a Metro station just a half a block away. The high chair came in handy when our granddaughter came by. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We will definitely try to stay at The Madison next time we visit Pasadena.- Maria N. from Dallas, Posted: 06/18/2018
This is a very nice property. It is well located, clean, well stocked and quiet. We enjoyed our stay and the area is nice to walk in. We would love to stay there again. The only negative is that the WiFi would frequently go out, it wasn’t much of an issue for us but it does mess with the tv if you are watching Netflix. Note the bedrooms are upstairs which I didn’t realize from the pictures again, not an issue. The property is as pictured also.

Great location within walking distance of restaurants and activities. Kate was super to work with - very accommodating. I appreciated checking in early.- Marge T. from HAM LAKE, Posted: 11/22/2019
Location excellent for us, unit well cared for. Great experience. Only one problem - thermostat difficult, as if on a "locked" setting. Couldn't get it from "heat" to AC. We needed some air, so we opened windows when in the building, or turned on the fans.- Anonymous from Cincinnati, Posted: 05/22/2019
We loved our stay in this condo. It is very well-equipped and has everything you can imagine. The location is fantastic. You can walk a very short distance to Trader Joe's, restaurants, CVS, you name it. We will stay here again next time we are in Pasadena! Thank you for a wonderful stay.- Anonymous from Riverbank, Posted: 08/13/2018
The staff at Vacation Living was perfectly attentive and communicative. Check-in instructions were crystal clear and timely received. In addition, our host representative contacted us on the first day (via email, no text or call thankfully) to make sure everything was OK.
The property in Pasadena (The Madison) was super clean and had everything we needed. The king-sized bed was more comfortable than our own, and we slept like babies. Our kids enjoyed their own TV in their room, so they didn't sleep as much. ;)
Our location was perfect in Pasadena for walking. We were there for an event at the Convention Center and walked there every day. Restaurants galore, Trader Joe's/Whole Foods, several parks, and downtown are all within walking distance. Parking at the Madison was relatively convenient and, most importantly, super secure (gated, garaged).
Two examples of how the Vacation Living went above and beyond:
1. Our travel plans changed at the last minute, and adding a night to our reservation was super easy and cheerfully accommodated.
2. I accidentally left some clothes in the unit, and the housekeeper found them, contacted Vacation Living, and they were shipped to my home. :)
We highly recommend this property and are extremely happy with the Vacation Living experience.- Anonymous from Bend, Posted: 04/13/2019
We had a lovely stay at the Madison. The space was clean, homey and welcoming. The welcome basket of chips and salsa, cookies and wine were such a nice touch!

The apartment is great- Anonymous from Kfar-Saba, Posted: 04/23/2022
Property was very clean and pleasing. After a long travel, the welcome kit was surprising. Thanks for sharing your property for our use.- Anonymous from SAN JOSE, Posted: 09/08/2021
We enjoyed the apartment. It was very clean and attractive and was walkable to CVS, Starbucks, Trader Joes and Whole Foods and the light rail. The only downside was the view was unpleasant --the ally and the parking lot. We had little contact with the property management, but were welcomed with a bottle of wine, salsa and chips,- Anonymous from Plentywood, Posted: 06/07/2018
We had a great stay here. Very nice spot, good location, and comfortable for a weekend stay.- Anonymous from San Francisco, Posted: 12/04/2018
This property worked very well for our needs, four adults, here in town to visit with family and enjoy the sites. Convenient to freeway access, yet quiet neighborhood feel. Nice to have two and a half baths available.- Jesse A. from Simpsonville , Posted: 11/18/2019
It was amazing and they made it feel like home. Everything was clean and they had a beautiful welcome basket. I love the layout of the home. It was fantastic.- Crystal J. from Lawrenceville , Posted: 10/19/2020
My friend and I enjoyed this townhouse. It was a perfect getaway spot to stay for a training. It was nice to have space to stretch out after a long day. Plus, there were many restaurants within walking distance. It's very clean and well stocked with everything you need. The management was responsive and the welcome basket was a sweet touch. I would totally stay here again if I come back through Pasadena.- Elizabeth C. from Tempe, Posted: 11/19/2018
This is our second stay at The Madison. Our daughter and her family live very near by. The location can’t be beat. It’s walking distance to Trader Joe’s and lots of restaurants. Having our own garage parking space in the unit was very helpful. We had an issue with the air conditioning breaking down. Thankfully they someone out that evening and got it up and running again.- Maria N. from Dallas, Posted: 09/18/2018
This deserves more reviews. Kate is a fantastic host and was highly detailed. Home was clean, practically spotless and very homey. Had a good nights rest every night I was here. Location is conveniently located in Pasadena as well as easy access to Downtown LA. Highly recommended!- Anonymous , Posted: 12/07/2017
We stayed at this place 4 years prior and were pleasantly surprised to see that it was in the same or better shape. Great location - within walking distance to restaurants. Nicely accoutered. Would recommend.- Marge T. from HAM LAKE, Posted: 11/16/2023
We had a great experience in a great location. Curtains and windows could use some attention. Daytime parking could be better explained and assisted with for 2nd vehicles. I would stay again and also happily recommend.- Anonymous , Posted: 02/06/2020
