Please check upon arrival that your cabin has working heat, power, hot water, and the hot tub is working (if applicable) due to changing mountain climates and conditions. Big Bear Vacations does NOT offer refunds due to any circumstances outside of our control including but not limited to: weather or road conditions, acts of nature, mechanical or electrical failure or malfunctions with spas, TV's or other equipment, or the sighting of insects, bugs, or rodents. NEIGHBORHOOD TRANQUILITY- You are a guest of the owner and Big Bear and will be staying in a residential neighborhood area. Please understand that you agree to respect the tranquility of the neighborhood and those around you, and that disturbing the peace is a direct Violation of City Ordinance which could result in fines and or immediate eviction without refund. TRASH REMOVAL- Guests are required to remove & dispose of their trash to the proper dump site (Per City Code) provided at check in and to wash and put away their dishes prior to departure. Failure to dispose of trash properly will result in a disposal fee of $25 PER BAG REMOVED. OCCUPANCY & PARKING- Each property is licensed to accommodate a maximum number of guests (including children) and vehicles at any given time during your trip. It is very dangerous and illegal to over occupy any property as these regulations are set by the City or County and are non-negotiable. Winter snow will likely reduce parking by 1 vehicle, please plan accordingly and use common sense when parking in the winter months. NO STREET PARKING IS PERMITTED IN BIG BEAR. Violation of occupancy and parking regulations can result in fines, vehicles being towed, and possible immediate eviction without refund. HOT WATER- Mountain cabins are generally equipped with 15 - 40 gallon water heaters per home, depending on the cabin size and water heater type. It takes more hot water to heat in Big Bear for bathing comfort due to the low outdoor temps, meaning you will quickly deplete a 40 gallon water heater when showering, doing dishes and or laundry. In the event that you have loss of hot water, and can verify that it is engaged and working, you will need to allow for recovery time for the tank to refill and reheat your supply. PETS- Many of our homes are pet friendly and accommodating to your fur-babies however there is a non-negotiable pet fee of $10 per pet, per night in these particular homes. AMENITIES- Though most of our homes are fully furnished with the essentials, utensils, cooking supplies and linens, please note that Big Bear Vacations does not supply shampoos, soaps, hair dryers or laundry detergent.

HOT TUB- If the hot tub/spa becomes non-operational at any time during your stay Big Bear Vacations will do our very best to repair or contact the owner's service company to repair in a timely manner for you. Big Bear Vacations does NOT offer any guarantees, refunds, or compensation if non-operational during your stay. WEATHER/SNOW REMOVAL- California Law requires that if traveling to Big Bear during the winter months (November to April) that you carry snow chains for your tires with you IN your vehicle. Snow removal is the responsibility of the guest. Shoveling may be required to gain access to the cabin, as well as decks, porches, BBQ and hot tub areas.

The beds suck did not sleep good at all for two nights!
Very nice property very clean and well kept everything you need is here but the beds are terrible and if you don’t get a good nights sleep it’s just not worth staying there that’s just my opinion will not stay at the same cabin again!
Cute property, but will only book through owners in future.
This was a very cute property, sadly though, owners should either run rental themselves or find another company to run it. In the past I have booked rentals for Big Bear on VBRO through owners of properties. We have always had a very pleasant experience and it has been super simple to check in and check out with the lockbox outside of property, let alone usually check in is at 2pm and out by 11am. Big Bear vacations was super inconvenient. Checking in at 4pm is already late, let alone having to go to their location to wait in line and check in, so we didn't get to property till about 5pm because you had to also wait in a line. Multiple people in front of me were complaining about dirty properties and their properties not being available till after 6pm. Thankfully our property was ready on time at 4pm, however when we got to property, it was super dirty. Bathroom toilet wasn't even clean. Toilet had pee on seat and feces still in toilet from whoever stayed there before, we ended up cleaning it ourselves. Bedding looked as though only sheets were clean and not quilts , shams or blankets. You could see old webs in house. Felt super yucky to stay there. Thankfully Big Bear Vacations refunded me partial payment for cleaning, however I really should have gotten full considering how tacky they left it. I will be sure to only book owner ran properties in future. Big Bear Vacations seems to be super unorganized and inconvenient.

Beautiful and COZY Cabin - close to everything!
We had a very enjoyable stay at Casa Catalina. It is a beautiful and cozy cabin with central heat to keep every room warm and toasty! It has a very nice gas fireplace and is conveniently located in a nice neighborhood. It's close to Magic Mountain and the Village shops (both of which were enjoyed by us!). My two boys, husband, and I all had a fun and relaxing experience! I highly recommend this property!
We enjoyed the decor of this cabin. It was cozy comfortable and decorated so cute with bears and wood.
