WELCOME HOME! My homes are unlike most rentals. I make sure to meet all of your needs and then some. In addition to being an artist/designer I worked for the Hotel Del Coronado for years so I know 5 star hospitality well. Everything is there waiting for you and anything else you may want, just ask.
Just 1 block to the center of town with great restaurants, art galleries, fun bars with live music and charming little shops. We are on a culdesac so the house is completely quiet and private. Your children and dogs will LOVE the 1/2 acre yard (not fully fenced). For a fully fenced yard see my other property, 968530.
This is another Melissa Wilson artist designed and managed Idyllwild home so being pampered and spoiled and having a 5 star treatment is always part of your stay. Check out my other vacation home to see my Superhost 5 star ratings and reviews at www.vrbo.com/968530 & number 1106622. I have three vacation rentals to meet all of your vacation needs. I pay close attention to all the details like the plush bed and bedding, the selection of sleeping pillows, and the drawers and cabinets filled with “oops, I forgot or ran out” items.
This 1,500 square foot warm, relaxing home is remodeled and designed by me, Melissa, a long time Idyllwild resident/artist/teacher. It is upscale, remodeled, very clean and well stocked. The outside of the home is incredible for entertaining. The large 1/2 acre back yard has several comfortable seating areas to take in the beautifully natural, lush, private landscape complete with a seasonal stream, two foot bridges and a trickling water feature. The inside of the home is very warm and inviting with incredibly comfortable couches and loungers throughout. Put your feet up and enjoy the large wood burning fireplace in the livingroom made for families and friends to be together. The home works well for couples, friends and families (including the family dogs!).
IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE: One dog is included in the rate (2 dogs max (dog rules are listed in the house rules). Six guests are included in the rate, additional guests are $25 per person, per night (8 people max, or just ask if more). 30% off for a 7 night booking. 50% off for a month.
There are three very comfortable beds with luxury sheets and a queen air mattress if needed.
Beautiful hikes and mountain biking from easy to difficult are close by.
I will work with you on earlier and late check in and out times if possible but normally check in is anytime after 3PM and check out is 11:00 AM.
Very peaceful, quiet and private. Just a 1 block from the center of town.
Shops, restaurants and bars are practically right outside the door. Just a short drive to beautiful hikes and parks throughout Idyllwild.
Please treat our home with respect as you would your own home. Our town is very fragile with the drought so due to that reason we do not allow smoking on the premises. We also love dogs and are happy to share the home with your well behaved “child” (two dogs max). If your dogs can jump on the bed or sleep with you please bring your own comforter/blankets to cover the beds and remove ours. If you forgot to bring it we have one there to use. Please do not let them on the furniture. They cannot be left alone in the house or yard. Most places in town are very dog friendly so they can join you or please bring a crate if you want to leave the dog in the home. Please clean up waste in the yard and if there are any accidents in the house please clean with the pet carpet cleaner provided. If you have children please make sure they understand to be respectful of the home and the landscape.
No parties please, but having some friends over to barbecue is fine. This neighborhood is very quiet and has some full time owners who would not appreciate the noise. Please observe extra quiet hours from 10 pm to 8 am.

About Melissa Wilson
WELCOME HOME! My homes are unlike most rentals. I make sure to meet all of your needs and then some. In addition to being an artist/designer I worked for the Hotel Del Coronado for years so I know 5 star hospitality well. Everything is there waiting for you and anything else you may want, just ask. Please take a look at all three of my listings, they can meet your different vacation needs! #968530, #1106622 and #1134743. I have been living in Idyllwild, working as an artist and teaching art at the local boarding high school, Idyllwild Arts Academy, for over 16 years. I started my renovation projects with my own 1955 total redesign and then wanted to share it with all of you. I love remodeling, designing and hospitality so much I decided to help others create their dream vacation rentals. I now have redesigned and manage three unique properties. I am stopping at three so I can guarantee each guest gets the personal 5 star treatment that you all deserve. I hope you feel the passion and love that went into all of these places and fall in love with their charismatic, cozy charm as much as I have. Relax, put your feet up, pour a glass of your favorite beverage and feel “home”.

Home away from home!
This has been one of the mos pleasant trips we have done. It was home way from home. Comfortable, cozy, beutyful and most of all full of homie details that only one puts in a place they love. It is just one block away from the center of town.
Melissa thank you, we did not need to contact you as every thing was perfectly organized and thought in advance.
Beatiful, zen place to stay.
We loved this property. A stroll on the grounds makes you feel one with nature. We enjoyed being in walking distance of town yet you feel like you're in the middle of the forrest. Beds were great, loved the quality of the bedding and quality of the mattresses. We had a great time and cant wait to return.
The perfect mountain getaway!
Melissa was so wonderful and accommodating and the house was lovely and perfect for our needs. She was sure to check in on us and always made sure we had everything we needed (there was even a blackboard in the kitchen welcoming each of us by name!). Everything went perfectly. I would absolutely recommend Melissa and her wonderful home to anyone looking for a quiet escape in beautiful Idyllwild.
Wonderful, cozy cottage in Idyllwild!
This was type perfect cottage for us. We enjoyed just sitting in the wonderful garden or out on the verandah, watching the birds and the creatures that were our neighbours...it is sooooo peaceful and quiet-the perfect place to kick back and relax....the cottage has everything and more to ensure your stay is comfortable. We couldn’t have chosen a better place! Thanks Melissa!
Thank you so much Kil for your wonderful review. I love this home for many reasons but you just listed my favorite parts. It is awesome that you get that much privacy and quiet but yet town is just a block away. So happy your all enjoyed yourselves. Come again :-)
Perfect for a girls weekend
We have a lovely time at this cabin. It is so close to town, yet tucked away and quiet. It suited our needs perfectly and the owner was very accommodating so far as check in and check out times. That was greatly appreciated as there was a time change while we were there. Thank you Michelle! The cabin had an updated warm vibe to it. We very much enjoyed cooking dinner there and also hanging out in the living room next to a roaring fire. The bathrooms look like they have been recently updated. As a girl I like my pamper time in the bathroom and appreciated that it was nice. I look forward to coming back with my family and staying here again.
Thanks Wendy! I appreciate you writing a great review... although my name is Melissa not Michelle :-) no worries. The bathrooms are almost brand new. It's always a plus to have new, clean, updated bathrooms :-)
You are all welcome back anytime and so happy you enjoyed your time.
The house was perfect for our group! Very close to town and the yard was great for the kids and the dogs! We hope to come back in the summer when we can enjoy the outdoor space!
Thanks so much for your stay Holly. I am so happy you all enjoyed your stay and you are welcome back anytime! September/October is fun because you can all pick apples right in the back yard! But of course Idyllwild is great all year. Take care!
BEST LOCATION! Just 1 block from the center of town yet totally private and quiet. Everything is very close to this house. You may not ever need to get in your car the entire stay!
