Cottage Style Comfort Near Claremont Colleges, Metro, And Downtown Village
Check-in is 3:00 p.m. 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. In order to keep the home in tip top shape, it is necessary for us to limit the breeds allowed to non-shedding dogs only, weighing a maximum of 45 pounds. NO CATS, as we, the owners, are allergic to them, and we oftentimes stay in the home ourselves. Check-out is 12:00 noon.
More things to do while you are here:
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 & do administer tickets.
Reservations may be granted upon confirmation of number of guests and acceptance of the rental agreement. The home is not available for over six overnight guests. The number of people allowed at the home, including visitors, must never exceed ten people at any time.
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 Montclair
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.

In the Cool of the Large Shade Trees
The house was very comfortable and "homey". We appreciated the central AC as the temperature reached about 95 degrees. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The backyard was outstanding in the evening, sitting on the deck under the cool of the large shade trees. Location was perfect for the event we were attending. Adding a ceiling fan to the west bedroom would be a nice touch. Reservations, check-in and check-out were made very easy by the owners. Thank you and we hope to be back next year.
A village gem
We booked this property very last minute and were impressed by how clean and functional it was.
Great house and location
This property is a gem. Nice neighborhood, close to shops and the colleges. Yard is great, house is charming. Owners took great pains to equip the house with pretty much everything you'd need and there are clear instructions and labels for everything. Best home rental we've had in a few years.
It was our pleasure to have you as our guest! Thank you so much for your kind, kind words!!!
This was our 3rd lengthy stay in the Claremont house and it remains just as well equipped and comfortable as we remembered it. It's very neat and tidy and the owners have so many things included for your stay.
Perfect location to walk into the village for a meal or just a stroll around the campus.
We are sooo glad you returned as our welcome guests!!! Thanks for you kind words and know that we appreciate your being such special guests!!!!
The house is located in a quiet neighborhood near downtown Claremont. The owners have thought of everything and want you to have a great experience at their house. The backyard is beautiful and a great place to relax at the end of the day. We highly recommend the house and would definitely stay there again.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to your return!!!!! Jim and Mary
Another Great Stay
As always we had a great stay in Jim and Mary's home. Jim is easier to work with and everything is well thought out. The house is in a great location and just a short walk to the Claremont colleges and the village for lots of shopping and eats. Will definitely be back.
You are our special guest and we continue to appreciate your coming!!!!!!
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.
