About Brad

I love buying truly special properties and enjoy the fact that I can share them with so many others. It is my eighth year with my own vacation rental business.

I have taken such pride in our other properties that I am happy to say that we boast a five star rating on VRBO and countless incredible reviews from our valued VRBO customers. An avid vacation renter myself, I like to provide my guests with every amenity they could possibly need to make their stay a relaxing and memorable one.

Brad purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Brad chose Idyllwild

I fell in love with the charming community of Idyllwild after my very first visit. After searching for the perfect property for over three years, I knew that this place was special from the minute I walked in the door. It was like nothing I had seen before- light and bright with windows boasting incredible views everywhere. With three separate decks, soaring wood ceilings, a flawless floor plan and charm to spare, I can truly say that this fully remodeled stunner is my dream mountain getaway. The home sits on a double lot totaling almost three-quarters of an acre of prime mountain land. I love exploring the property and collecting pine cones and manzanita branches. When you are at this property you truly feel that you have gotten away from it all. Particularly when you come home from a fabulous meal at night and stand on the deck taking in the most incredible view of the stars I have ever seen. What can I say, the place really is magic.

What makes this cabin unique

Because this home sits on a mountainside nestled on a private road, it boasts incredible views and a peaceful environment. Sitting on the deck watching the birds come to feed at the birdhouse is one of my favorite pastimes. I even provide a bird watching book so that you can identify your new friends. Because of the 'windows everywhere' concept of this house, even on a cold day while nestled in front of the fire, you feel like you are outside in the middle of nature.

This home is truly a luxury accommodation. High thread count sheets, soft fluffy towels and comfortable pillows all make for a relaxing stay. Because cooking is a passion of mine, the home is stocked with high quality pots and pans, beautiful dishes and glassware and every kitchen utensil you might need to cook a gourmet meal. The home also has a brand new chef's quality infrared grill.

For those snow-filled wintery days, the home has a beautiful wood burning fireplace/stove and lots of items to entertain you - smart flat screen television, Blu-ray disk player, dvd's, board games and a large book collection.

With all that it has to offer, this home truly is the perfect mountain getaway.

Lovely experience. Wished I'd planned on 4 nights instead of 2!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean with luxurious and comfortable furnishings. Fabulous view off the main deck with exceptional outdoor furniture. Well stocked kitchen with quality cookware. We discovered the knoll the 2nd night with comfortable chairs and picnic tables. Can't wait till we can return.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time spending our spring break here with our two children. The back patio was perfect for relaxing, drinking coffee and soaking up the incredible views. The kitchen and living room were spacious and perfect for cooking and hanging out together as a family. We were so impressed by the over cleanliness and thoughtfully decorated interior. We can't wait to return!

Winter Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cabin this is. It's been remodeled and kept extremely clean. You won't be disappointed with the quality of all the amenities.

The host are very proactive and called the day we were going up to let us know that they'd hired someone to snow plow a parking space for us.

We ended up parking on the main highway because the private road leading to the cabin was a bit icy.

We'd highly recommend this lovely cabin and great hosts! We hope to return again for a spring/summer getaway too!

Birdwatcher's Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Spent Spring Break here with my 75-year-old mother and 13-year-old son. This nicely decorated home has beautiful views right out into the forest. It's clean, quiet and serene - no traffic noise/barking dogs/annoyances of modern-day urban life! Exactly what I was looking for! Close to town for groceries/shopping/restaurants and close to nearby attractions like the Nature Center, Fulmor Lake and Hemet Lake. Beds were comfortable and kitchen was fully stocked. As an avid bird watcher/photographer, I was kept enthralled daily (including in the rain!) by the antics of the forest birds who came to the feeder on the back deck. Species seen included Acorn Woodpeckers, Steller's Jays, White-breated Nuthatches, Pygmy Nuthatches, Mountain Chickadees, Black-headed Grosbeak, and a stunning pair of Northern Flickers (male & female). Fluffy gray squirrels and cute chipmunks picked up any stray seeds that the birds let fall. There are a few things that might be considerations depending on the abilities/needs of those in your party: 1. road down to the cabin is steep, narrow and pavement is damaged - was not an issue for us in April, but I could see it being an issue in winter. 2. Stairs down to first floor (bedrooms) are fairly steep and narrow - could be an issue with accessibility for anyone elderly or with knee problems (my mother is pretty spry, but had a hard time with this). Owners are very helpful and quickly respond to any issues or inquiries. We had a fantastic time and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Perfect Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

What impressed me most about this amazing home is that every time I thought of something I needed, I looked around and there it was! The owner thought of everything from binoculars to watch the birds from the patio to a milk frother for morning coffee. Your every need is fulfilled. The furniture is very comfortable and the home is very clean and updated. A true find and I hope to return soon.
