Westmont House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage Style Comfort Near Claremont Colleges, Metro, And Downtown Village

The moment you enter this wonderful home you will experience a peaceful feeling. Double French doors provide a lovely view of the back yard with the look and feel of an English garden enhanced by a towering Mountain Ash. Enjoy your morning coffee out back on the deck--or watch the morning news in the living room--on a 55 inch flat screen TV.

The home features three bedrooms and two baths. The master has a king-size bed, flat screen TV, and a bathroom with shower. The other two bedrooms have double beds, and one can also serve as a study, complete with desk, and free wi-fi for your convenience.

The remodeled kitchen is fully equipped with all you need for preparing your own meals. Or, if you'd prefer to eat out, the historic downtown village is less than a five minute walk, and is full of delicious eating places. Want to go into LA? The metro station is even closer than the Village! Need to go to the Colleges? They start just two streets over with the first being Pomona College. Have a dog that needs some exercise? The Claremont 'Pooch Park' is one street over from this home. Yes, this home is pet friendly. In order to keep the home in tip top shape, it is necessary for us to limit the size of pet permitted -- a maximum of 45 pounds.

You might like to take a short trip to the mountains…just 45 miles away to the east……or the beach…just 45 miles to the west…or Disneyland…just 27 miles to the south. Whatever you choose you will find easy access to both the 10 and 210 freeways.

Property restrictions include the following: Smoking is not allowed -- neither inside nor outside of the property. Driveway holds 3 cars, max. Claremont Police do not allow overnight parking on the street.

Reservations may be granted upon confirmation of number of guests and acceptance of the rental agreement. The home is not available for over six guests. The number of people at the home, including visitors, must not exceed ten people. New: Home Away now charges a mandatory booking fee which will be shown in your quote.

Again, this is a NON-SMOKING home--both inside AND outside. If this description meets your needs, we would welcome your visit to our home!!!!

About Jim and Mary Hollifield

Both Mary and I grew up in Texas but were thrilled to make our home in Claremont after our three children were grown. I retired from dentistry after practicing 30 years and Mary recently retired after having been a teacher, a licensed professional counselor, and a Pastor.

Why Jim and Mary Hollifield chose Los Angeles County

Claremont is the 'sweet spot' of southern California. Not only does it have beautiful weather, but the community is vibrant with many small colleges and a leadership that builds on happy families and happier dogs! The downtown Village is one of a kind for the area and is becoming the 'place to be' on Friday nights to enjoy a lively small town with wonderful music and food venues.

We have stay in this house on several occasions and feel as though this is truly our home away from home when visiting my daughter at college. Jim is always easy to communicate with and we like the changes they have made to the back yard. Really enjoyable to have breakfast outside or just sit and read. They have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable.

Perfect house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and my daughter and her fiance stayed here for 4 nights to attend her graduation activities from Vet school. The house is within walking distance to a lovely section of stores and restaurants in Claremont. Everything was neat and clean and the backyard was charming- morning coffee outside on the patio was a treat! Kitchen was very well stocked with plates, silverware, utensils, pots and pans, and condiments and teas. Very much enjoyed our stay. I highly recommend.

Within walking distance to the village

  • 5 of 5

This home is within walking distance to many restaurants, coffee shops, and retail shops. Claremont is a quiet, beautifully groomed village. The Hollister's home fits right in. The home was spotless and the backyard and deck was the perfect place to soak up the California sun. We very much enjoyed our two weeks that we visited and would recommend this home to anyone who comes to visit Claremont.

Perfect for a clairmont stay

  • 5 of 5

If you want a home away from home this is for you. Three bedrooms , two baths, and a well equipped kitchen made our stay wonderfully complete. Even took the train to LA. one day and got into the Broad art museum! Train was one block away! Breakfast in the beautiful back yard was relaxing.

Ideal rental

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom cottage has it all. Great location, quiet neighborhood, easy to find, exceptionally clean and comfy, and reasonable price. It's much cuter and better than the pictures. We were at a college reunion and everyone who came by envied our "find". My wife and I have stayed in many rentals, and overall this was the best. The Hosts were available and helpful, making sure our stay was enjoyable. Thanks Jim and Mary.

Sunset magazine has named Claremont the "Best Suburb in the West" and that is certainly a well deserved honor. The multitude of colleges in the city and the wonderful attention to landscape has resulted in the nickname, "the city of 'Trees and PHD's'." The vibe is family friendly, dog friendly and bike friendly. All in all, a great place to raise a family and enjoy the beauty of the world's greatest weather and location.
