You don't have to look too deeply into L.A.-area homes for rent to find familiar names among the owners: the Miami Heat's Chris Bosh, actress Kristen Stewart's mother Jules and actor Steven Guttenberg.
Here's a look at what they are offering for lease:
Bosh, the 28-year-old power forward/center, bought his resort-like place in Pacific Palisades in late December for $9.4 million and has put up it for lease at $45,000 a month. The contemporary Mediterranean includes six bedrooms and eight bathrooms within its nearly 11,000 square feet of living space. The infinity pool features a swim-up bar and lounge area. Other outdoor amenities are a patio kitchen, pizza oven and shower. Inside, there's a movie theater and a sports bar. Donna Bohana and Shen Schulz of Solstice International Realty in Malibu are the leasing agents.
Whether a Malibu beach house is owned by Kristen Stewart's mother, whose name is on record, or the "Twilight" actress herself, the modern home is available for lease at $21,500 a month. Ocean views, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and balconies or decks from most rooms are among features of the five-bedroom, five-bathroom house with 5,800 square feet of living space. Linda St. George of Leslie Randall & Associates has the listing.
Actor-comedian Guttenberg, 54, of "Police Academy" and "Diner" fame, is offering a pad in Pacific Palisades at $12,500 a month. The Spanish-style house has three fireplaces, a bar, five bedrooms, five bathrooms and 4,366 square feet of living space. The more than half-acre lot contains a swimming pool. Gina Martino of the Agency is the listing agent.
