The house was great for my needs. I will stay there again for sure.

  • 4 of 5

Place was great. Really clean and well stocked. Everything worked well. Would like to be able to use garage entrance as it was raining and I didn't want to get the really cool floors dirty. You can't go wrong staying here. Very quiet too. Needs a bigger Tv above fireplace would be nice.

Gorgeous and spacious house in Kern/Lake Isabella

  • 4 of 5

A group of 7 of us went to stay at Casa Durango for a weekend in Kern. The house was very large and spacious. While the owner didn't have any photos of the bedrooms and we were nervous about them, the bedrooms were sufficient for our stay. The master bedroom is huge with a jetted tub, large walk-in shower and steam room. The other bedrooms were enough for our stay also. The patio is great with views of the much draught-ridden Lake Isabella. Sunsets are gorgeous here! The house had very good instructions on where to find things and operate the pool and hot tub. The great thing about the house is it sits by itself with no close neighbors around. The house was a little tricky to find as the actual street (dirt road it's on) has no street sign but we eventually found it. Sarah was very quick in her responses and informative. Only other issue we had was the pool and hot tub looked dirty and the pool vacuum was still in the pool when we arrived- and when we called her to ask about it, she never returned our call. But what we thought was a dirty pool/hot tub - we think was just discoloration of the actual cement in the pool an hot tub. Still would have been nice to have been called back to have been told this but overall great stay!

Owner's Response: Hello Mindy, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thankfully the drought hasn't affected the sunsets! I apologize for not having received your message as I work out of the country frequently in areas where cell service is scarce. Normally I am within range in 24 hours. Not the case during your visit. You are correct. The pool is always sparkling its just cement discoloration from the filtering well water. I appreciate your kind review and look forward to having you vacation with us in the future.

Beautiful home with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this lovely home for 5 nights this summer, and we had a fantastic time. Ironically, this was exactly the same time as the serious Erskine Fire was going on, but we still managed to have a relaxing vacation. The pool, spa, and patio were incredible, and the home is so clean, well-appointed and "cozy" despite it's large square footage that we felt like we were in a 5-star, luxurious hotel. I've rented several times from VRBO and my entire family agreed that this was one of our best rentals! The owner was also very helpful, patient, and cooperative. This home is very private with lots of parking and outdoor space, and it's only four miles to numerous opportunities for entertainment, shopping, and restaurants. Try Ewings restaurant with its spectacular view of the Kern River--it's a winner. Also, we really enjoyed our rafting trip down the river. I will strongly recommend this property to all my friends and family, and we'll definitely come back and rent this home again!

Exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Often pictures can make a place look better than it really easy. In this case it was the opposite. The pictures are unable to do justice to how large the great room is and how nice the furnishings are for a rental house. In addition, the panoramic views from the great room and the terrace are incredible. The place is very private yet only a 6 minute drive to town and whitewater rafting. This is the only place we would ever stay if we went back to Kernville.

Lake Isabella is a favorite recreation destination in Kern County and the greater Los Angeles area. Situated in the high desert, 40 miles northeast of Bakersfield, it's just enough off the beaten track to avoid huge crowds and yet close enough to LA to be convenient for a weekend outing. Water sports enthusiasts find calm water in secluded sections of the lake for water skiing and wakeboarding while anglers know one of the biggest largemouth bass ever caught came from Lake Isabella.

Hiking trails are endless in the Kern Valley. To get accurate and necessary information be sure to visit the Kern River Ranger Station located in Kernville. They offer visitors information on hiking, biking, rafting, camping and other recreational opportunities in the Sequoia National Forest and surrounding areas of the southern Sierra Nevada.
