OH YA BABY! THIS IS IT!

  • 5 of 5

So if the killer views, close proximity to town but far enough that it​'​s quiet, clean and beautiful lay out of the land and home, homemade banana nut bread, fruit and fresh flowers awaiting our arrival or the Jacuzzi isn't enough​...​ the kind home owner Ida will top your stay with her lovely mountain momma love'n energy. What a sweet heart she is! This is a gem of a stay! We had so much fun in Idyllwild and at the Dome. A Grand Piano and games adorn this round palace. The nice big open kitchen layout made making eats fun too. We would definitely recommend this stay to anyone who's looking for a great get-a-away with ​convenience, comfort and a good Ol' mountain experience and we will be back! Thank you VRBO and Ida!

Incredible stay in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

By the grace of the holiday angels, we were able to book Ida's fabulous home for a brief getaway over our Christmas break. The house is truly an architectural wonder, and all of the special touches - fresh flowers, handmade banana bread, and Ida's welcoming spirit - made our stay all that more enjoyable. Couldn't recommend this home and experience more!

Great Experience!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time over the NYE weekend in this beautiful and quirky home. Also, it was a quick 15-20 min walk to town even with three toddlers thru snow. One thing to note is that the walls in the two bedroom upstairs do not go completely up into the ceiling. So if you have light sleepers in your group or toddlers who need to go to bed early, make sure they sleep in the master bedroom. Also, depending where you are, you can hear whispers from different parts of the house. Overall, our stay was great, and made better by the fact that our kids got to experience snow for the first time on New Years Day.

Perfection for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Ida never disappoints. The dome house is such a fabulous place, from the architecture, to the setting, to the details and how well thought out all the items are in the house. Kitchen is well stocked to make simple to complicated meals. Ida makes homemade banana bread that is fantastic, she has oranges in a basket ready to prepare orange juice. You like drip coffee - go for it. If french press is more your thing, the house is prepped for that too. Our family of 4 have gone 2 years in a row. Our kids are 8 and 10 and they call this house 'A dream come true'. Fireplace for cozy fires, tons of movies, and games and puzzles and books for both kids and adults. It is chilly this time of year, so bring layers, slippers. She does have blankets and robes in the house for extra cozy factor. Walking possible to town on quiet streets, or a 3 minute drive. We will be back. One piece to keep in mind is the architecture of the house has fabulous fun acoustics, so if you whisper from an upstairs bedroom you can hear it downstairs. We call it 'the house of truth' as no secrets can be kept there. I mention this as a recommendation to think of who you are traveling with. Downstairs has a very quiet secluded master bedroom with a king size bed, other than that the upstairs bedroom walls don't go all the way to the ceiling, so less auditory privacy in those two bedrooms. For our family of 4 it has been fabulous. Last year we had a grandma come with us and we had 3 generation fun. Ida is incredibly receptive and easy to communicate with if you have any questions before or during your stay. I love knowing her and her care and love for this home shows. No hesitation on returning again.

Wonderful Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful dome house provided an amazing backdrop for a very special birthday celebration with my family. The home is extremely clean and comfortable. Ida is a very accomodating owner who goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. She provided a huge basket of oranges for fresh juice, as well as delicious homemade banana bread. In addition she places fresh flowers in every room. We have stayed in many VRBO rentals over the past 20 years and have never been provided with all these homey touches. It was fun for the whole family to stay in such unique architecture, although beware, even whispers can be heard everywhere. We loved sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The master suite was huge, just amazing. It is very close to the special town with great shops and restaurants as well as the Nature Center for hiking. We had several generations and there was plenty to entertain everyone. Thank you Ida for a very memorable weekend.
