About Don and Diane Cunningham

We are a retired couple who have been fortunate to realize our dream of building our dream home and retiring in Kauai. We were both born and raised in Southern California and had executive careers in local government there. Since our family and friends are in Southern California, we make several trips a year to visit them as well as vacation throughout the U.S. and occasionally internationally. In mid-2013, we achieved another dream of buying a second home in beautiful Lake Arrowhead.

Don and Diane Cunningham purchased this house in 2013

Why Don and Diane Cunningham chose Lake Arrowhead

Although Diane was born and raised in Southern California, she had never been to Lake Arrowhead until some friends invited us there over the 4th of July in 2012. Diane fell in love with the quaint mountain town and made good use of the outlets in Lake Arrowhead Village! She immediately began to work on Don to consider buying a home there. They both loved the fresh mountain air and all that Lake Arrowhead has to offer, so Diane didn't have to work too hard.

What makes this house unique

After looking at many properties, we chose this home as it was the right size for our needs, had a quiet and peaceful location, its overall mountain charm, plowed roads in the winter, and its close proximity to restaurants, shopping and lake activities. We love its chalet-like exterior, the large deck for relaxing and entertaining, and the large yard filled with a variety of trees and shrubs.

Beautiful home & nice location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our get away with our girls. My husband & I were able to sleep in one of the upstairs rooms (right next to a restroom) & had our girls in the room down the hall. Their grandparents had their own master suite downstairs which worked out perfectly. Beautiful home! We are already planning our next trip back.

Clean, spacious, and private.

  • 5 of 5

Loved going to Tavern Bay because nice and sandy shores and clear water. Snack bar and clean restrooms. Plenty of Chaise lounges to go around plus all staff friendly.

WiFi was not Compatible with any of our phones (AT&T) we could not stream Programs and I paid for 3 extra giga bytes of data while there for a week. Since that trip I Updated my phone to include unlimited data because there is a cell site close by the residence. I was still worth it because the house was spic and span clean and the property was beautiful with the electric awnings and washer and dryer. Big plus each bedroom had its own television with dish TV and 60inch tv in living room.

Anytime we had an issue the owner was quick to respond and was happy to guide us. I’d love to stay there in the winter sometime To utilize the gas fireplaces.

The house was clean when we came in and came fully stocked which was great! The neighborhood was nice and with just a little walk up the hill you are able to see the lake. Will definitely stay here again when we come up to Lake Arrowhead!

We spent 6 weeks at the Cunningham's mountain home is everything as described an much much more. This was one of the best VRBO rentals that we've had. Their response to any questions was prompt, the kitchen is very well equipped (liked the good knives) and best of all were the beautiful sunsets.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this mountain getaway for four nights over July 4th weekend. The home was well appointed with all dishes, utensils, serving platters, etc., as well as a lovely deck where we spent most of our days and evenings. Our family of four, including two teenagers, were very comfortable and we had plenty of room to entertain extended family on the holiday.

We would definitely consider renting this again!
