About April

We are a family of four who live in Southern California but love the mountains. We fell in love with this home on a family vacation and decided this is where we wanted to make long lasting memories. We put our heart and soul into renovating this house and making it a place we would want to stay on vacation. It has the feel of the mountains with all the amenities of the city.

April purchased this house in 2010

Why April chose Fox Farm

We love that Big Bear is truly a year round outdoors town. In the winter there is snow for skiing, sledding and making snowpeople. In the summer we enjoy boating on the lake, which is one of the most uncrowded in the state. In spring and fall the weather is mild enough to hike and truly enjoy nature. It also has a great Village with restaurants and shopping. We love Big Bear!

What makes this house unique

We love walking around our neighborhood as each home is unique and has its own curb appeal. We relish the outdoor dining areas where we can eat, drink and watch the kids run around the huge yard. We enjoy being 5 minutes from Starbucks and Vons.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is absolutely gorgeous! It has everything you need to have a great time: brand new kitchen supplies, incredible (I would say professional) stove, 8 people table on the deck, pool table, game room with big variety of table games, extremely clean lines and very clean well maintained jacuzzi. I could talk about this place forever :) This is how happy I was with it. Destination Bir Bear Vacation were very prompt and responsible. We were out of gas for grill and they were able to bring a new tank in 30 min after I called them. I am definitely coming back to this place during winter season!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

My finicky family loved this place. I visited with my 3 adult children, spouses and grandchild. A grand time was had by all. This home is so convenient and comfortable - it truly reflects a pride of ownership. Well stocked kitchen, blankets, pillows, etc. with a beautiful outdoor area. We are already talking about our next visit. Thank you April for allowing us to stay in your very special home!

Wonderful home for family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Big Bear the last 4 summers with our 2 grown children, our youngest daughter who is a teenager and now our grandbaby. We all agreed this was our favorite rental home!

My family thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi. We used it unheated in the daytime as a little cooling off pool and perfect for the baby. The backyard is beautiful with a large lawn and mature trees providing shade. All is exactly as shown in the photos.

Because of some significant food allergies in our family, we do a lot of cooking ourselves instead of eating out. This was by far the best equipped kitchen I've had in renting. All of the dishes, pots, pans, utensils were quite new - it was a pleasure to be cooking there!

Summers can be quite warm even in the mountains but this house stayed quite cool even when temps hit the low 90's. Every bedroom also had a fan provided. Windows open on all sides of the house so that as the evening air cooled down, the house was pleasantly cool with a lovely breeze. Sometimes the downstairs bedrooms can be dark and dingy but this one had a large window and even a door leading out to the jacuzzi area. Very pleasant.

The deck overlooking the backyard is large and the table and chairs out there seem new and were clean and very comfortable. We loved eating all of our dinners overlooking the beautiful yard.

April was very pleasant to deal with and she responded quickly when I had a question about the dishwasher.

A heads up that you may want to bring extra consumable items like paper towels, toilet paper and tissues.

We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend there. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home with us!

Highly recommend!!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful the pictures are okay but really do no justice. We did initially have a problem with the keypad to get into the house but it was quickly resolved. I loved everything about our experience EXCEPT the amount rules and corresponding fees. Other than that I would stay at the property time and time again. Thanks for making my husband's birthday one for the books!!!

Little disappointed

  • 3 of 5

The owners need to change cleaning people. There was popcorn under one bed, hair in one of the bathtubs, quite a bit of dust and dirt behind the laundry room door and the carpeting was in big need of cleaning. Also disappointed that there weren't any kitchen cooking spoons to stir pots and pans with. The runner in the back of the trash can area was not screwed down and the trash can fell forward when you brought it out. The spa took many many hours to heat. It would have been nice to have some little instructions to go with the TV-maybe a list of channels so that you weren't having to channel surf. I don't understand why owners think that other people know how to use the appliances, fireplace, etc. Also TV's, even small ones in the bedrooms would have been nice. Some people use TV's to relax in the evening. The pool table area is really hot when the heat is on and nothing to prop open the door. Many possibilities for a fabulous stay but not up there yet.

Owner's Response: Dear Jeane- Thank you for your thoughtful review. I know you had a lot of questions prior to booking and then staying at the cabin. We definitely tried to accommodate your many requests. I have contacted our cleaning company with your concerns. Up until this point we have only received 5 stars on cleanliness so hopefully they just had a bad day. Two of the four bedrooms have televisions as well as cvs in the game room and living room. Each has a manual in the drawer underneath the television with instructions on use. We have re-attached the garbage can- sometimes with large groups people tend to push down on it too hard taking it off the track. After your review we did purchase and stock the kitchen with a new set of cooking utensils although I found 3 large spoons we already had in the drawer with other utensils- now we have 6. The carpet was cleaned in October but I am looking into whether it needs it again. The spa does take 2 hours to heat up and we do suggest in welcoming email that guests turn it on upon arrival. Appreciate the feedback.
