About the property

This would be a terrific location to go east to the Desert and Las Vegas, north to the mountains of southern California, south to the greater Orange County area beaches and attractions, or west into the heart and excitement of Hollywood and Los Angeles.

The property is close to the renowned Claremont Colleges, Cal-Poly (Pomona), Azusa Pacific and other major colleges & universities east of Los Angeles. Also close to the Los Angeles County Fairplex (Home of the largest County Fair in the United States), the Ontario Convention Center & Ontario International Airport.

wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were very easy to contact. Greg responded to my emails within a couple of hours, shared his personal phone number so that I could alert him when we were going to arrive. The cottage is private, comfortable, and on a distinctive street, in an out-of-the-way small canyon, that feels very far from the city. It was a great location for us to drop off our daughter at Pomona College. We hope to stay again.

Comfortable and Quiet Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Overall great experience with owners and location is perfect for easy access to LaVerne/Claremont/Azusa area. Single air conditioner in bedroom handled the space well with interior doors open when outside temperatures were well in the triple digits. Living space got warm with bedroom doors closed, but windows help provide ventilation along with ceiling fans. Everything is as described and appliances worked well to cook meals onsite. Access road is quite rough and driveway is steep so would not recommend a low riding car to access property.

Great little place

  • 4 of 5

Spent 2 nights here while visiting my daughter, a student at Cal Poly. Very comfortable, and quiet. Hard to believe that you're in the LA Basin (I-210 less than a mile away, but you wouldn't know it). Nice oak woodland in the back, a deer came down one morning. Recommended.

Beautiful, secluded apartment and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Greg and Bernadette are lovely people with an equally lovely setting for their home and attached apartment. They were very welcoming and the description of their apartment was accurate. It was great to have Greg meet us personally and walk us through the apartment, giving us details we needed to know about the place. And, having ground rules and expectations written out were helpful and appreciated.

The apartment was clean, well organized and had everything we needed for our stay. I really liked the Asian-themed decor.

Communicating with Greg was very smooth and he was very responsive.

I only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the surrounding area more and to get to know our hosts.

We enjoyed our stay in this peaceful, well-equipped property, and will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 1/2 weeks here, while helping our elderly parents downsize and move to assisted living. It is located up a lovely little arroyo in the foothills, but is only a few miles from downtown Claremont. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen is very well-equipped, and came with fresh grapefruit and lemons! The weather was cool when we arrived, and the heating unit did a great job of making everything cozy. When the weather turned hot, the air conditioning was also very effective. The resident dogs greeted us cheerfully, and were so quiet the rest of the time that we hardly knew they were there. Greg and Bernadette were very welcoming, although we were too tired to take them up on their offer of a glass of wine in the evenings. We will definitely return on our next trip to Claremont!
