About Heidi

This house was our family home for 4 years. We had very enjoyable times here and space was never a problem for entertaining many guests.

Heidi purchased this house in 2003

Why Heidi chose Los Angeles County

Great for large groups from retreats to family reunions. Quiet neighborhood, short walk to town center's shops and restaurants, park, church, and club house (golf/tennis/swimming pool). House is handicapped accessible (main level w/ large bathrooms); ramp available upon request.

What makes this house unique

Upgraded large kitchen open to dining and living room + deck (all entertaining in one great room), three fireplaces, flat back yard for games, beautiful sunsets from large rear deck. Short walking distance to all town amenities and hiking trail.

Bear in Mind

  • 3 of 5

Overall, this was an enjoyable stay with the exception of one significant issue. The house was large and well maintained. We had more than enough space for 8 adults and 5 children under the age of 8. There were lots of toys for for the children and games for the adults. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, cooking utensils including pots and pans, cups, glasses, flatware, and plates. It was warm in the house despite the fans and air-conditioner in the living room. But access to the pool helped make the temperatures less of an issue. We did have one major concern. We left a closed tupperware container that held dry dog food in the front foyer that attracted a BEAR! It came up the porch and into the foyer and carried off the container. This occured around 8 pm one night. We heard from other guests that many homes had been "visited" by this bear. It was unnerving to say the least. When we arrived at Heidi's Retreat, we left the doors and windows open at the suggestion of the owner. After that night, we kept everything closed which undoubtedly added to the warmth in the house. We feel that we should have been made aware of the bear situation before we rented the property. We learned that there are deterrents to bear visits which we would have utilized if we had been informed.

Welcoming home. As soon as you step inside the house, a snowman greeted us from the patio. ;)

  • 5 of 5

Home was cozy. They had enough beds for 19 people. No one had to sleep on the couch nor on the floor (except for the dogs)

The open concept - living room, dining and kitchen was really nice. The whole family spent quality time hanging out just in those spaces.

Overall, I would recommend. Two thumbs up.

Wonderful getaway for entire family!

  • 5 of 5

Heidi's house was perfect for our entire family, perfect for larger groups that want to be together! We all had a wonderful time, and Heidi was communicative throughout our visit making sure we were all doing good, and enjoying our stay. Would recommend to anyone, and hopefully we can all go again next year.

Owner's Response: You're welcome to come anytime, Jenny. I was slightly worried since you stayed during the biggest snow/rain storm for years! Thankfully all travels went well.

Beautiful, spacious, comfortable and cozy cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent New Years Eve at this amazing cabin and had the most amazing time. The cabin is spacious and comfortable. It is stocked with everything you need and more. And we were lucky to experience falling snow, which yielded approx. 7-8 inches of snow. It felt like we were in a Winter Wonderland.

Heidi, the owner, has been very amazing to work with as well. I already look forward to going back again soon.
