About Helen Lopez

We worked for the county 10 years and lived in this piece of paradise during the week - now retired and can't bear to give it up! We use it too, and share it when we can't - our home is El Centro and we also have vacation property in San Felipe and Rosarito Baja Mexico so we can't be everywhere all the time....Your advantage!

Helen Lopez purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Helen Lopez chose Crestline

It's a house that feels like a cabin - but a very well appointed one! !!

It's cheaper than most at in the area, because it's "Self Serve" so guests provide their own bedding, paper products, cleaning, and trash service. Its not for those looking for a "RESORT" vacation, it's for those who want a reasonably priced place to share and are willing to take the responsibility of day to day upkeep. Truly a "Home Away from Home"

What makes this chalet unique

Its the best deal on the mountain for this luxury property type - hands down - read our reviews we have many many return customers. If you are willing to put in the effort to do your own cleaning, and bring your own linens and paper, this is the place for you. If you treat our little house right you can come back at a discount.

Beautiful, spacious,secluded

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it really was. Far better than the pictures online. We are planning to return at the end of the year for an even longer stay. We were sad to go. Also, Helen went above and beyond expectations as the owner/renter of this property. She is truly wonderful.

Such a Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I went here for Christmas, and we couldn't believe the deal we got. The cabin is spacious and well-kept. It was a wonderful holiday, and we recommend it highly to anyone who's perusing. Very comfortable, pretty, and quiet.

Best Cabin Ever

  • 5 of 5

Best cabin rental hands down. Plenty of parking and relaxed environment it’s hard not to love this place. The cabin is secluded and the environment is mostly quiet with a great view every morning. I’ve rented this same cabin two years going on three years and have not looked at another one since. Mrs. Lopez is very friendly and helpful and answers any questions or problems I may have. I really liked the out door area and the overall ‘homey’ feel of the rental. Really felt like a home away from home. Can’t wait to come back!
