Our family of four (two adults & two children) are visiting children's grandparents near old town Pasadena for a week (Dec 26 to 2 Jan). Yes we just realized it is very bad timing, the same week as Rose Bowl etc...
We have been searching and trying to find a two+ bedroom house/condo within walking distance to old town and it just does not seem there is any. Are vacation rentals non-existant in the downtown area?
We did find lots of apartments (unfurnished I believe) on the market for longer term rentals, it seems if some of these smart landlords would just turn their units into temporary vacation rental they ought to be able to rent them out a lot faster and at twice the normal rate!
Anyway if anyone knows where we may find what we are looking for, please let us know. Thanks
