GREAT Home for Our Family Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with renting on VRBO.com and it was a complete success!! The owner (Robert Kvassay) was so easy to work with and was very responsive to all of our questions and needs. The home was in a really quiet neighborhood. It was perfect for entertaining... had a wonderful kitchen, two separate eating areas, plenty of comfortable seating, an inviting fireplace, and great outdoor patios. The owners really went "above and beyond" by decorating the house for Christmas with a tree and lots of outdoor lighting. This all contributed to making it feel "like home" for us during our Christmas get-togethers with family and friends.

The reason for renting a house in this area was that it was "our turn" to host Christmas Eve and we have recently moved out of the Southern California area. Since not everyone would be able to travel 4 hours north to our new location, we thought the best thing to do was find a home close to our family and friends. This WONDERFUL home was in a perfect location, provided everything we needed, and allowed us to feel like it was "home" for the holidays. One of the best features was the AMAZING view of the mountains! We couldn't have timed it any better... when we arrived it was cloudy and started to rain. Then the first morning we woke up to a clear day with a spectacular view of snow-covered foothills and mountains, and a perfect setting for Christmas... in Southern California, no less!

There was plenty of room with 4 bedrooms and 2 large bathrooms upstairs, and it was set up very well for 2 couples or 2 families with children to share this home. The master bedroom was very nice, and the beds were VERY comfortable with an adjustable-firmness mattress in the master bedroom. There was a great laundry room with a brand new front-load washer and dryer set. And, all of the necessities and supplies were provided to wash clothes if needed.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental for anyone traveling to the area. It is a well-maintained and very clean home that is centrally located with easy access to the freeways and attractions of the San Gabriel Valley. We want to thank the owners for all of their efforts in providing us with an extremely enjoyable stay!

Fabulous House with Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, well furnished, comfortable, spacious and was perfect for our family get together. The house is situated on a hill side located in a very quiet neighborhood and offers fabulous views. It has a large kitchen, two separate BBQ areas, a nicely maintained pool and plenty of space for adults as well as the kids to enjoy separately but within site.

The owners – Robert and Vicky, are the best owners. They made our family feel very welcomed, were extremely helpful when needed and even invited our family to visit them at another house they owned nearby.

We really enjoyed our stay and would love to stay at the house again if we have another family get together in the area.

The house is well furnished and spacious and is perfect for a family vacation with plenty of open space, both inside and out, for relaxing and socialising. The views from the front of the house are stunning and the pool is well maintained.

Robert and Vicki were extremely helpful and, while being unobtrusive, were available to assist if required.

This house would be our first choice if we're back in the area in the future.

Amazing place with fabulous kitchen and pool

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to the Hill Top and we loved it even more than the first. The place is large and spacious with everything you could possibly want in a vacation rental. The pool is lovely. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is fabulous. We cooked all our meals at home and found everything we needed. We also loved all the outdoor seating and ate a few meals on the patio. It really is beautiful.

It is a short drive from the Claremont colleges. So we plan to return to this place over the next four years visiting our son.

Perfect for our situation!

  • 5 of 5

The Hill Top Home was perfect for our Christmas family get-together. We have 3 kids in California and we came from out of state so it was a great place to spend our holiday. This house has lots of space for just "hanging out" and several seating areas where you can sit and talk or play games. Beautiful view of the mountains. The kitchen was well supplied with utensils and everything you need for preparing meals. The beds were very comfortable. The linens were all clean and had that fresh feel to them. And the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. The only downside was the weather was quite cool during Christmas week so we really couldn't take advantage of the pool. But we enjoyed the fireplace!
