“They decided to rent a house together while they keep searching for the perfect [one] to buy,” says the source. “Jen and Justin are very excited about living together in their new home.”
As PEOPLE reported in July, the couple have been house-hunting for a while, but decided to settle into a two-bedroom rental in the Hollywood Hills until they find a permanent haven.
The actress rented the Hollywood Hills house on Aug. 1, a real estate source tells PEOPLE. The house provides the couple with privacy, hardwood floors, a new ozone pool, spa and viewing deck. The master suite features vaulted ceilings and French doors leading to the yard.
Since returning from a romantic Hawaiian getaway, the couple has been enjoying time together with friends. On Aug. 24, Aniston and Theroux, 40, shared a long dinner with George Lopez at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, and a source tells PEOPLE the couple looked comfortable – and affectionate – together.
“She and Justin looked very happy together,” says the source, “and even kissed at the table.”
