Best Experience Ever!
Let me start off by telling you we have high expectations. We are in our our mid 40's and when we travel, especially with our kids, 8 and 12 years old, we want 5 stars, comfort, new, and clean. (OCD) We have been coming up to the mountains with our families the last 30 years and have experienced it all. We haven't traveled much the last 2 years due to our work schedules and our goal this trip was to unwind, get away from electronics, veg out, and spend quality time with our kids but in a property that suited our style and needs. Staying in a poor property can really ruin a entire trip!.
I spent hours reviewing properties to rent on several different websites. We wanted a single family home (cabin) to rent and were nervous with the size of this property and that there was another attached unit, but after reading some reviews, seeing the desirable location, and going off their images, we decided to rent this property for 4 days and 3 nights.
Communication before hand was great. We went up confident knowing where we were going and where to find keys to get in once we arrived. We arrived at 9pm and we were nervous about getting unloaded and settled at night, however the property was well lit, and due to the time of year, it actually had Christmas lights on it which made the kids even more excited. We rented the upper unit, which was cool because we had fantastic views. We were able to back into the drive way right up to stairs so we could unload. We got right in and to our surprise the condo was beautiful! I was so relieved. It was VERY clean and had everything we needed! We brought up all our own food, coffee, condiments, and the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, blenders, etc. so we felt right at home. We also always bring our own sheets, pillows, and comforters when we travel but to our surprise, All the linens provided (towels, sheets, pillows, bedding) were top quality. Not thin and cheap. Each bedroom had a nice size TV in it so when we went to bed, we could still watch TV. (3 tvs in all)
They have a private backyard that was full of snow, so we were able to let the kids play out back while we relaxed without the stress of them being in any harms way and watch them nonstop. They had board games we were able to play while there. The couches and beds were so comfy! This is a must for us due to back issues.
The heater, water pressure, water temp, everything was perfect.
We would rate this property 100 stars if we could.
We had a wonderful stay between Christmas and the New Year. The place is within walking distance to the Snow Summit parking lot, so it is very convenient and we didn't have to pay for parking for skiing. The kitchen, dining area, living room, and bedrooms are all spacious and yet still feels cozy. The counter top is very big and stylish and the appliances are very new. The best part is, there are three queen sized beds, which is better than most other places where you would get two beds and a sofa bed if you want to sleep 6 people. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend a few days at Big Bear.
Glad you enjoyed our place and look forward to your return visit. Thanks for taking care of the property! See you soon.
Perfect Mountain Getaway!
I was hesitant to write a review because I didn't want to share this perfect little gem with others! haha! Then that means, I can't come back whenever I want. =)
But, credit is due! This was my first time renting from Steve and I'm so happy that we did. The place was easy to find, the communication from the owners were awesome, and the place was just as it was described. A few things that I loved about the place: Super close to everything you need. 5 minute drive to the village and to snow tubing for the kids. Easy to find and lighting was great especially arriving late a night. The place was very clean! The sheets, towels, furniture, and carpet were all very clean and well kept. Bed were pretty comfy and had enough sheets and towels for the whole family (6 people). Also, the kitchen and house was basically fully stocked with all of the essentials you need for a great weekend. They had paper towels, toilet paper, cooking oil, trash bags, dish soap, etc. Check the supplies before heading out to the market.
The ONLY negative for me were the spiders. Yes, we're in the mountains but when i'm traveling with 3 small children, I can't help but be a little worried for the kids. There were tons of spiders in the tub and a few that made it's way on us in the living room. These were huge black/brown spiders. I'm not sure if the owners spay monthly, but it may help.
FYI: There are no humidifiers in the unit. We asked before coming up and brought our own. No problem. but for those that are planning to visit, definitely bring one if you have. It helps with the dry air.
Overall, it was a great stay and we really enjoyed the place. This is a place I'd definitely rent again in the future! I can't wait to visit big bear again soon!!! - Thank you Steve!!!
It was great meeting you. We appreciate all the wonderful compliments about our place and glad you enjoyed your stay. I also appreciate you letting us know about the spiders. We cleaned and spray that same day so all should be good. We look forward to your return trip!
Bday and New Years!
What an awesome apartment and location. Definitely not roughing it with everything we needed. It's up to date, but still has a mountain feel. We were able to walk to the slopes and even walked up to see the torch show on New Years Eve. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend for the price, location and overall feel. Steve was very attentive and responded quickly to the few questions we had.
Thanks for taking such good care of our place. I'm glad you enjoyed everything and look forward to having you come back soon.
Amazing! We didn't want to leave!
My review is a bit delayed and I apologize for that. We stayed here on July 2nd to July 5th. My whole family and I, every year come up to Big Bear for their fourth of July firework show, along with other activities. This year we weren't sure whether or not we were going up to Big Bear until last minute. We were so glad that Steve's home was still up for grabs since it is very difficult to find places to stay, especially within our budget. The pictures honestly don't do any justice to the cabin because it is so spacious!!!! Everything is new, clean and comfy! Everything from towels,dishes,coffee,and games was included. We had another part of our family stay with us so it was 6 of us in total and honestly slept very well and spacious for everyone. The rest of our family (which were staying in another cabin) came to visit us and check out the cabin and they were honestly jealous because Steve's cabin was better, haha! Anywho, before we left we tried to leave things a bit tidy so we wouldn't seem like such slobs, haha. My family and I honestly loved this cabin and it was our first time renting a home for a weekend, I hope Steve thought we were good guests and would allow our family to book a stay with him soon! Thanks, Steve!
Exceeded our expectations!
We just rented this cabin for our ski trip to Snow Summit. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the rental was the whole upstairs! We had thought there were two separate units upstairs and downstairs, but there are only two units total, one up and one down. Upon unlocking the unit, we were greeted by a beautiful remodel. This unit feels and looks like a cabin!! It is comfortable and clean. This was the cleanest unit we have ever rented, and we have been renting cabins for the past 10 years. In fact, this is the first time I have taken the time to write a review. The shuttle stop is right in front, but we actually walked up to snow summit. Parking was plowed and can easily fit two large vehicles. Cabin had everything you could possibly need, and I mean everything. Kitchen was well appointed. Everything worked, light bulbs and all. We would rent again!!!!
