About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 7 Sleeps

2 Night Minimum! Pets Considered!! This immaculately kept 5,000 sq ft, 4 bedroom, 3 & a half bath home was custom built by the owners 9 years ago. In 2013, it was featured in the Altadena Home Tour. It sits on the most sought after street in Altadena! Boulder Road is a safe, quite, upscale street just blocks from the picturesque mountains of the Angeles National Forest and just 3 miles from the famous Rose Bowl. The front two story rotunda opens into the large formal living room (with working fireplace). The first level also consists of a large bedroom and full bath (with separate shower and whirlpool tub), a large gourmet kitchen, half bathroom, and large laundry room (with two washers and dryers). The second rotunda has a spiral stair case which leads to the second floor. On the second floor, you will find a 1,000 sq ft master suite with two sets of french doors that open to separate balconies overlooking the backyard. Additionally, the second floor has two bedrooms, a media room with surround sound , TV and Playstation, a full bathroom with separate shower and claw bathtub. If you are looking for a luxurious and impeccably kept home to rent, this is place for you. This house will only be rented on a limited basis and, therefore, you will always find it be in immaculate condition! Take a closer look at the house on the Amenities Tab! You'll find a video link and custom website page! Check in is at 4pm and check out at noon. Brand new Peloton bike for cycling enthusiasts!

About Rhonda Strauss

I have an undergraduate degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the University of Missouri as well as an MBA. In addition, I have several years of professional hotel and concierge experience!

Rhonda Strauss purchased this house in 2007

Why Rhonda Strauss chose Los Angeles area

Mark is in the construction industry, therefore, we custom built this home. It looks like it was built in the 1920's but has all the modern comforts and sizing of a brand new home!

What makes this house unique

Open floor plan perfect for entertaining or families with kids of all ages!

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The home, neighborhood, decor, and welcome by the owners was terrific. Plenty of space but still very cozy for nice family time events.

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

What a great house. Plenty of room for the whole family. Very private yard. They allowed us to have 2 baby showers at the home, and it worked perfectly. This is a great place to have family get togethers. Rhonda is a great host, very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back.
