First time available for rent! Our newly remodeled home sits on a hilltop on the Los Angeles/Orange County border. Enjoy your privacy - the house is on a cul-de-sac shared with only one other house. The lot is just over an acre and bordered by a nature preserve.
Nature enthusiasts and hikers will love this property! A hiking trail begins steps from the back door, continues up the property's hillside, and connects with 26 miles of hiking trails. From the top of the property enjoy 360 degree views of Orange County, the Los Angeles Basin, the San Gabriel Valley, the San Gabriel and San Bernardino Mountains. On clear days you can see the coastline stretching from Newport Beach to Santa Monica, Catalina Island, and the San Jacinto Mountains. The views of the city lights at night are breathtaking.
This home is close to everything! Downtown Los Angeles, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Raging Waters, and the Angeles National Forest are less than 20 miles away. Los Angeles and Orange County Beaches are less than an hour away. The mountain and desert parks and resorts in Palm Springs and Lake Arrowhead are just under 90 minutes away. The possibilities are endless! You can plan a different day trip every day!
You don't need to leave the house to have a great vacation. The backyard is perfect for entertaining and relaxing with a new custom Napolean BBQ grill and plenty of outdoor seating. Enjoy meals on the deck listening to the birds or hook up your favorite music. The sunsets are exquisite; as the sun sets you can see the Santa Monica mountains to the west. Enjoy from the deck or from the hillside steps. You can also sit in the private front yard and watch the city lights sparkle as the sun goes down.
The home is complete with everything you need to cook, relax and play. The kitchen is new with custom granite countertops, travertine walls, and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the pots, pans, equipment and utensils needed to cook a gourmet meal. The equipment includes food processor, blender, rice cooker, crock pot plus all of the basics. EVEN A FULL SPICE RACK! We have personally found it frustrating to arrive at vacation rentals only to realize we need go purchase salt, pepper, spices, and equipment to make dinner. Everything is here for you.
Relax and play in the movie room with the 15 foot projection screen. The ceiling-mounted projector has hookups for cable television (included), video games (Wii-U included), Netflix (included), and computers (bring your laptop). The sound comes through Bose speakers. Bring your own video console and see your games projected on a 15' diagonal! The sofas in the movie room were custom made for the home. After experiencing movies here, you will never want to go to the theater again.
The beds are comfy with all new mattresses and 100% cotton sheets. In addition to the comforters, you'll have six Alpaca blankets imported from Ecuador. The blankets are different weights so each person can find the perfect fit.
There are three bathrooms - one with a shower/bathtub combo and two with showers. The bathrooms are remodeled with travertine showers and granite countertops. All are stocked with towels and necessities such as cotton balls, Q-tips, soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotions.
One last note - there's a HUGE avocado tree that rains avocados in the summer. They are delicious! If you're not an avocado fan, they make a great spa treatment for the skin and hair.

Year Purchased: 2005
About: We purchased this home in 2005 when expecting our first child. Now we have two children, a boy aged 9 and a 5-year old girl. We love to travel and rent out our home to families visiting LA and Orange Counties.
Why La Puente: We chose this home because, when we first saw it, we walked straight out onto the back deck and didn't want to leave. My husband and I work in Los Angeles and loved the opportunity to escape to this serene property after spending our days battling LA's traffic. We're close to the city - the drive is only about 20 minutes if timed correctly - but we feel a million miles away when we're home.
We are also hiking enthusiasts. We were thrilled to find a home with direct access to miles of hiking trails with breathtaking views of Los Angeles, OC, and all of the surrounding mountain ranges. The property is also centrally located to seemingly endless attractions throughout Southern California.
Finally, we chose this property for our childrens' safety. The lot is mostly hillside and the hike up and down the property is a bit steep, but both our children became proficient hikers shortly after learning to walk. Few cars come to our cul-de-sac. Plus, we have Halley the German Shepherd who won't even permit a squirrel to set foot on the lot.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Views, views and more views! On the 4th of July you can see the fireworks shows all the way to Pasadena. All of the avocados you can eat! A serene, private property in the middle of a sprawling metropolis.
