Mountain Escape - 2 King Beds - Million $$ Lake & Mountain View

Amazing views, fantastic fun and everything you could possibly need.

Amazing views, fantastic fun and everything you could possibly need.

01/10/2019 - The VRBO Bear, decided to bring Mrs. VRBO Bear to this amazing Lake Dillon condo, and wow what a truly fantastic time! Such an amazing view! Right on the shore of Lake Dillon, we enjoyed watching the colorful sunsets over the frozen lake after returning from a long day of skiing. Then, the Jacuzzi tub was the perfect way to unwind and relax those sore legs before enjoying the fireplace while making dinner. And at the end of the evening, the king size beds made for some very sound sleep. We found that all amenities were there and then some, along with nice attention to detail throughout the unit.

Situated close to Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, and others, the location made for relatively quick access to all of them. We also really enjoyed speeding down the tubing hill at the nearby Frisco adventure park! Be sure to bring some hiking shoes, because you’ll definitely want to explore the trails around Lake Dillon, the nature preserve in Frisco, historic mining areas, and many other great spots around here. The main streets of each town were great places to sight-see and explore too. When we weren’t skiing, tubing, Jacuzzi-ing, or exploring, we made it a point to check out the various local breweries which also serve up some great food. I’ll admit we may have spent more than we intended at the nearby outlet malls in Silverthorne as well.

Valerie was fantastic to work with, and was very warm and hospitable throughout the entire experience. We felt her true hospitality and were very appreciative that they have gone to such great lengths to update the unit and make it so enjoyable. All in all we had an amazing time at this wonderful condo, and we hope to return in the future!

Hiatt Hale: Luxury Kailua Beachside Home on a Quiet Beach Lane

Enjoy this beautiful home and the best beach in all of Hawaii.

Enjoy this beautiful home and the best beach in all of Hawaii.

01/08/2019 - Where to start! We loved our stay at Carolyn's island paradise and couldn’t come across a better location on all of O’ahu. We have family that live on the island and they were so impressed when pulling up the location- saying it's by far the best beach on the island and after touring different areas we agree! We quickly realized that we were only steps from the most beautiful beach we'd seen in Hawaii and we visited more than a few. The water was every shade of blue and it felt as if we had the whole beach to ourselves, to lounge in the provided beach chairs, body surf, or walk a little down to rent a kayak or wind surf. We never wanted to leave the beautiful beach, but things to do were plentiful nearby, such as beautiful hikes with waterfalls, delicious restaurants, and the plenty shops in the area.

Entering the house we were greeted with such a thoughtful welcome basket, with all sorts of island treats (one of the best pineapples we had!). The house was immaculate, it was so welcoming with the beautiful pool and the inviting patio. The open floor plan was so spacious and perfect for our big family, bringing us together for meals, family games, and movies, all the while giving us little nooks to escape and read a book or relax after a day of exploring. Every detail was thought through from the well-stocked state of the art kitchen, to the surplus of comfy towels, pillows, and blankets. Air conditioned homes are hard to come by in Hawaii. We were very impressed with the air conditioner at the Hiatt House and additionally really appreciated that we could have many showers going at the same time- all with hot water. The accommodations rivaled those of 5 star hotels that we've stayed in, but the feeling that we were at home could not be matched. This was an experience you can't pay for at an all-inclusive, Carolyn went out of her way to ensure that we felt at home, truly thinking through every detail. All of her recommendations were on point, having lived in Hawaii for so many years, she really knows the how to enjoy the island and clearly provided the best of Hawaiian Hospitality we received. We travel often and this is on the top of our list for accommodations, location, hospitality, and overall experience.

Enjoy all the wonders from Lake Powell to The Grand Canyon!

01/01/2019 - This year the Bear and his family decided to see the beauty of canyon lands. And there is no better location to stay than Page, AZ. This small town is within close proximity to all most famous landmarks of Arizona and Utah states: Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell, Horseshoe bend and many others! We had a big company and decided to stay in Amy's and Rob's beautiful house. It is big enough to accommodate up to 14 people. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals, big dining table has enough for a big party. The bedrooms are nice and clean. Amy and Rob are very friendly and responsive. We enjoyed our stay a lot!

VRBO Bear Stayed Here! Escape to Waterfront Cabin, 'Lakeview Canoe'!

You'll enjoy the beautiful panoramic views both day and night!

You'll enjoy the beautiful panoramic views both day and night!

12/29/2018 - Mesmerizing panoramic view of the lake from anywhere in the living room is over-simplified one-line description of this beautiful lakefront cabin. Cabin is well-decorated with accents that are water related, such as canoe, bell, paddles, ducks, maps, anchors, etc. You can do kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, swimming, and tons fun water activities. Slip is right in front of the cabin. The amenities provided were abundant. We enjoyed the 2 TVs, upstairs and downstairs (DVDs), lots of games, books, grill, swing set, fire pit, hammock, and xbox, that the cabin came equipped with. We cooked Christmas dinner for 12 people and felt the kitchen was big enough and well-equipped. Watching the moonrise from the living room was a fun activity for our family. The neighborhood was safe, clean, friendly, relaxing and peaceful. The owner, Carla, was quick to respond and took every effort to make out stay comfortable. For larger groups there is another 6-person cabin next door that can be rented. We toured this property and the cabin seemed equally fun and relaxing. Thank you, Carla, for a memorable Christmas vacation with family, could not have asked for more. Five stars are not enough!

12/25/2018 - We loved our stay! Christina was very kind and helpful during our stay. The house was fabulous and the view even better. The property is locate in the heart of Colorado springs and has everything you’ll need within miles. Its just minutes away from I-25 highway, which makes commuting easy. Major attractions like Garden of Gods is 10 mins away. I HIGHLY recommend staying here and we definitely will be coming back again.

You will feel right at home at this beautiful Texas Hill Country house.

12/23/2018 - The VRBO bear and 5 of his friends stayed at this lovely Ranch House for a pre-holiday getaway. They couldn’t have asked for a better stay!! The short drive off the main road made the location private while still being in very close proximity to the wineries we were visiting that weekend. The house was decorated for Christmas which made it feel like home the second we walked in the door. From sitting on the porch, looking out into the open fields and watching the deer graze in the early morning to enjoying the private hot tub rooms in the evening, this place had it all. The host baked delicious seasonal pastries and provided farm-fresh eggs and venison sausage for us to enjoy in the morning! We could tell there was a lot of thought and consideration put into the details of this home. It felt as thought every time we turned the corner or opened a drawer, another detail was thought of that made us go, “Wow! How did they think of that!”. It was these unexpected details that made our stay go from great to excellent. Thank you for hosting the bear and his friends for an amazing getaway that will be talked about for years to come!!

This is the perfect place to stay when vacationing in Destin!

12/22/2018 - The VRBO Bear and his family made a trip out to Destin this December and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. Sirenia is a beautiful home, full of everything to make your beach vacation one to remember. We arrived a little later in the evening, but the kind hosts at Sugar Palm management had the lights on and the house prepared for our arrival. That was a nice touch. The family room and dining area are open and perfect for a homecooked meal. We took advantage of the grill by the pool more than once. The kitchen has all the pots, pans and dishes we needed, plus some helpful spices for meals. Sirenia is a perfect place for larger groups or families. The bunk bed room was a huge hit with the kids. These are not your normal bunk beds. They are huge! The master suite was the perfect escape for momma bear. The master bathroom is elegantly decorated and a relaxing place to get ready for the day. There are 3 master bedrooms in this place and that means that people have their own space to relax. When it was time to hit the beach were just a short walk away. There were some beach toys and chairs provided, which was very appreciated, since we came by car. The beach was not crowded during our stay, and that has a lot to do with the location. It is a more residential area, so you are not dealing with the huge condo complexes. On our last day we just looked around and marveled at how lucky we were to spend a week at this home. Sirenia is the perfect place for your family beach vacation.

5 Min Walk to Upper Deer Valley Slopes Luxury Family-Friendly Silver Lake Area

Enjoy your Deer Valley stay at this beautiful townhome!

Enjoy your Deer Valley stay at this beautiful townhome!

12/15/2018 - Fabulous ski house at The Ridge, Deer Valley Resort. Beautifully appointed lodge just like you'd expect from a classic 'Christmas by the slopes' Norman Rockwell painting with all the contemporary fittings for the modern family. From the first snowfall to the large stone fireplace where the family gathered for nightly board and card games after dinner around the rustic and cozy dining table to the twinkling 10ft tall Christmas tree, there was not a detail overlooked. Every corner carried welcoming surprises for guests from vintage sleds and toys to log cabin bunk beds for the kids in the game room. Multi-media capabilities, cozy leather, and couches, a window reading nook made the expansive family room inviting and the heart of the home. Small but thoughtful touches like luxurious toiletries and plush towels made each and every bedroom feel like a 5-star resort. Large family meals were prepared easily in the fully stocked kitchen - from exotic spices to All-Clad cookware - we were instantly transported to winter wonderland vacation mode upon arrival. Après ski in the hot tub right next to the fresh snowfall in the private alcove tops off an excellent ski day on the exclusive powdery slopes of Silverlake Lodge and Ski Village just minutes of walking away. Park City Old Town and its museums, galleries, is minutes away on the convenient and comfy Orange Line Park City transport shuttle. Have dinner/drinks there at the many craft bars/restaurants if you don't feel like cooking or just hop down the Silverlake Express to the Snow Lodge to relax and dine there. Thanks to the hosts for sharing their fabulous home - it really feels like home away from home at The Ridge ski house.

Amazing ocean views right outside your door!

12/13/2018 - Beautiful, exceptional condo with amazing views. Our family visited in the off-season when the town was quiet and the weather would not let us stay at the beach all day, but being at this property still made us feel like we were on vacation anyway. The view alone is simply amazing, and the condo is cozy, spacious and extremely well-stocked with everything you need. It was like being at home. Dana was extremely helpful, very communicative and very quick in responding to us. She gave us local recommendations for places to eat, where to go and what to do. This was the perfect getaway our family needed before the holidays. The location could not be beat. When we come back in the summer, we will definitely stay here! Absolutely incredible!

Enjoy unbelievable views from this beautiful corner condo!

11/26/2018 - We had a great time visiting Destin, FL during Thanksgiving week. It was our first time visiting the white sand beaches of Destin and this 10th floor spacious condo was the perfect getaway. This unit is only a stone’s throw away from the beach and has a beautiful view from the balcony. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of utensils and the unit itself was well furnished including a washer/dryer. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and a shopping center within driving distance.

Chris was easy to communicate with and provided all the details needed for a smooth check-in/check-out experience. Overall, we really enjoyed the unit, location and the ease of communication with Chris. Would highly recommend the place to anyone planning a visit to Destin!

3,500 Luxury Villas, Spectacular Ocean Views, Minutes to Pristine Beaches

Pura Vida!! A stay in Costa Rica could not get better than this.

Pura Vida!! A stay in Costa Rica could not get better than this.

11/22/2018 - The villas at Las Ventanas Del Mar in Playa Carrillo were absolutely exceptional! My family stayed during the Thanksgiving holiday and have said multiple times that it was one of the best family vacations we have ever had. The luxurious vacation rental and location cannot be beaten! The house is beautifully decorated, newly renovated with high end finishings, and has jaw dropping views of the Pacific coastline from one of the highest points in the area. Walking into the house you feel like royalty with high ceilings, a wonderful wrap around patio and immaculate décor. The villa is located in a safe, gated community and has three spacious bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen with high-end appliances and cooking utensils, a great living space for entertaining and community facilities that are outstanding. We loved swimming in the large pool each evening, where we would watch the sunset that was truly second to none. I could go on and on about the beauty of the villa, but what made the stay so much more inviting and world-class was Albert, the Property Manager onsite. Albert helped plan our entire trip, from transportation recommendations, to excursion suggestions and planning (we did ATVs, Deep Sea Fishing and beaches) to in-house services coordinated with other members of the Las Ventanas staff (in-house birthday dinners, massages, etc.). It was an honor to stay in such a wonderful home, be greeted by exceptional staff and experience Costa Rica’s infamous “Pura Vida”. I would rate this stay higher than 5 stars if I could and would highly suggest the Las Ventanas villas to anyone!

Pearl Brewery Executive Town Home at Sojo Crossing

You will love this location and the relaxing roof top deck!

11/19/2018 - The VRBO Bear and friends loved our trip to San Antonio, TX and especially loved our stay at this Executive Townhome near the Pearl Brewery district. This beautiful townhome was not only gorgeous inside and out, but it was the perfect distance from the Pearl (our favorite place to hangout in San Antonio), Downtown, the Alamo, and the Riverwalk. One night we walked to the Pearl and hung out there all evening, the next we stayed in and had a great time cooking, hanging out, and playing games. The home itself was a fantastic 4 stories (including the roof top deck complete with fireplace), with a bed on each of the 3 main stories - providing privacy for each member of our group. With its tall ceilings and an open concept, the common room was fantastic - we were able to comfortably spend hours on end together. We loved the amazing amount of natural light throughout the home not to mention it was so clean it felt like it was brand new. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone and cannot wait to stay here again the next time I’m in San Antonio.

Stay in the most convient location and enjoy the comforts of home.

10/20/2018 - The VRBO Bear and friends enjoyed visiting this luxury condo in Ambergris Caye, San Pedro, Belize. The location is perfectly situated downtown, close to shopping, amazing restaurants and clubs. The property managers were so welcoming and accommodating making a great start to our vacation. The beautiful condo has plush high-end touches throughout - fit for a king bear! The bathrooms had thick bath & beach towels, a large luxurious tub and a big mirror tiled shower, equipped with both a rain showerhead and a regular one if you prefer. The 2nd smaller bathroom shower is identical to the master with many towels as well. Both bedrooms have beautiful custom-made bedframes and comfortable mattresses equipped with extra pillows and cozy linens. We were so comfortable we almost went into hibernation but looked out the widows with the amazing views of the blue Caribbean Sea and jumped up with excitement to go explore! The kitchen is fully supplied with plenty of dishes, silverware and wine glasses for the four of us. The dining room table is another custom-made piece making for a great dining experience. The living room has a plush couch and chairs where we watched our favorite TV shows, movies and listened to our music playlist on a large flat screen Smart TV. The patio is just off the living room which opens to a large deck that is right over the pool, beach and ocean. The VRBO Bear would like to thank you for an amazing vacation and for your hospitality.

Rent 1, 2, or 3 Homes--Spectacular views of ocean and beach from main house

Amazing home with an amazing view!!!

Amazing home with an amazing view!!!

10/09/2018 - We absolutely loved our vacation in this amazing home in San Francisco! We were stunned as soon as we walked in – the décor is vibrant and full of culture, and the view is just - WOW. It’s high up on a hill, so you can see the entire length of San Pancho Beach and view a jungle of beautiful palm trees. We loved how the layout of the home was partially open to the outside so you could hear the sounds of the ocean and nature. We were able to schedule our meals ahead of time and they were absolutely delicious – the green chicken enchiladas were the best we’ve ever had in our lives (no joke!). The property manager Iris is very responsive and the housekeeper and gardener were friendly and polite and kept the property and pool looking great. It’s the perfect property for families or groups of friends. The walk down to San Pancho Beach is a breeze, and even the town is easily accessible on foot (via the road or beach). We rented surfboards at a local surf shop and went down to the opposite end of the beach for the best conditions for beginners and we both caught a wave! We visited Sayulita (a brief 15 minute drive) great for shopping, watching surfers, and eating/drinking. We also visited Punta de Mita where we took a tour of Isla Marietas, which we highly recommend. We couldn’t imagine our stay being any better - thank you Bill and Melissa for letting us stay in your wonderful home!

Sedona Cliff House - Clean & Contemporary

Enjoy comfort & beautiful views, while just minutes from both nature and city.

10/05/2018 - I have stayed in many vacation rentals all over the world and The Sedona Cliff House is by far the most amazing home I’ve encountered. The house is a contemporary architectural gem – with huge ceilings, many large, thoughtfully placed windows, 3 decks, and an outdoor bathtub that overlooks the gorgeous red rocks. The photos don’t do it justice! Everything about the design of the home and its interior is masterfully done to compliment the natural beauty of the landscape. The house is only a few minutes from some of most breathtaking vistas in the Southwest including Cathedral Rock and only a few miles outside of Sedona’s city center. We were able to hike directly outside of the house in the National Forest but were also within a 10 min drive of some of the most impressive hiking and biking trails in the US. The house is close to Oak Creek for swimming on warm days, but since we were there at the start of autumn, we enjoyed building a fire in the outside fire pit. We enjoyed eating dinner al fresco on one of the many decks and stargazing at the Milky Way, which is fully visible from the house. Glendon who is an amazing artist, met us when we arrived and shared the history of the house (which he designed himself) and the works of art that he created throughout. He was available to answer any questions throughout our stay but gave us plenty of privacy and space which is what we prefer when on vacation. The house is well-equipped and has all the amenities needed for an incredible stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you Glendon for sharing this beautiful place with us!

Stunning sunsets and beautiful ocean views are yours each day!

09/29/2018 - This house was lovely. We had a group of 6 people who fit perfectly in this well stocked house on the water. The grounds of the house were well maintained, and you can tell the owners really enjoy spending time there. The house sits on a small rocky beach and overlooks an area where surfers try to catch a wave. The location being nearly Ko’Olina resort was wonderful. We spent a lot of our time at the resort eating and using the facilities. The sunsets were absolutely stunning.

You can enjoy the stunning mountain views and all the comforts of home!

09/26/2018 - Boy, was this a much-needed retreat! My best girl friends and I loaded up our car and headed out west to Taos. Yolanda greeted us and gave us some recommendations of where to watch the UT Longhorn game (Horns won! Hook ‘em!).
All in all, the house and property were an absolute dream for 3 girls and a lil ol’ bear like me. The open living, dining and kitchen areas were the most used; we cooked every meal at the house and enjoyed morning mimosas and evening cocktails out on the patio with the most stunning mountain views you’ve ever seen. I personally stayed in the master suite…the tub was to die for! I ended every evening with a nice, relaxing soak. An added plus was the layout of the house; the master is completely separate from the guest bedrooms. So much so that I almost forgot there were other people with me! Considering all we really wanted to do was get out of the city and relax, it was the perfect getaway. We really love and appreciate the opportunity to stay at this property; it exceeded our expectations for sure!

Convenient to everything you could want and steps from the beach!

Convenient to everything you could want and steps from the beach!

09/17/2018 - We found paradise in Kihei, Maui. Signe and Steve’s home is absolutely beautiful. The location was ideal as it was only a 2 minute walk to the beach where we enjoyed sunsets, swimming, and the sound of the ocean - we even saw a number of sea turtles. In addition, this condo was a convenient drive from everything you want to see. It was 10 minutes to Monkey Pod, a favorite restaurant in Wailea, 40 min to Lahaina where we attended an amazing Luau and walked along Front St., and only 30 minutes from a number of our favorite hikes on the island. Signe was an amazing host and gave us travel tips and was responsive to any question I had. The home itself has everything you need for a day at the beach, including coolers, umbrella, chairs, and beach towels. Inside, the bedrooms have big comfortable beds and a lovely kitchen, where we cooked a number of homemade meals. My favorite place in the condo was the beautiful balcony overlooking the grounds of the Kihei Resort. We enjoyed our morning coffee every morning while soaking up the sunlight among the beautiful flowers and lush garden. Thank you to Steve and Signe for the perfect visit and for sharing your home with the VRBO Bear!

Beautiful South Padre views right from your balcony.

Beautiful South Padre views right from your balcony.

09/07/2018 - A Summer trip to South Padre has been a family tradition for many years and of all the places we have stayed, this was the most incredible condo and property by far. In fact, I don’t think we could ever stay anywhere else now that we’ve experienced this condo and what The Sapphire has to offer, I truly believe it’s the nicest property on the island. The property is beautifully manicured, the pool was like something right out of a magazine, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the amenities were never ending (gym, game room, spa, etc). I could go on all day about how much I loved the pool. We also loved how close we were to all of our favorite dining spots (Sea Ranch, Yummies, and Gabriella’s). The condo was beautifully decorated, spacious, super clean, and very comfortable for the 7 of us. The pool and oce an views from the living room and balcony were pretty spectacular.The owners thought of every little detail (kitchen gadgets to beach chairs/toys) which really made our stay that much more enjoyable. The washer and dryer in the unit came in super handy and oversized tubs and showers sure were nice after a long day of playing in the sand. Thanks for opening up your condo to our family, we truly had the best time and have gained so many wonderful new memories. We’ll be back!

You will enjoy the incredible views of the Adriatic right from your balcony.

09/01/2018 - My husband and I decided to spend our honeymoon in Croatia. Our honeymoon stay at the Adriatic House was perfect! We could not have asked for a better way to kick off our adventure. The home is located on the small island called Kor?ula, off the coast of Croatia. The island is incredibly charming and has a beautiful Old Town area full of restaurants and shops. We traveled during the last week of August which seemed to be perfect for weather and sightseeing; warm in the afternoon and cool and breezy in the evenings. The island locals and tourists were laid back, friendly and the area was not overcrowded.

Every day we ate breakfast and relaxed on the balcony and soaked up the incredible view of the Adriatic from the home. We loved walking down to the private pier and swimming in the crystal blue water - we had the area all to ourselves! Great for snorkeling! We rented a car which made it easy to get around the island and back to the mainland. We were able to drive to the grocery store which was about 5 minutes away, and found parking close to Old Town where we ate at a new restaurant every day!

The property manager welcomed us upon arrival and was very available to accommodate our needs. Luckily we didn’t need much because the house came with everything we needed. We highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a quiet, private place with an incredible view.

Beautiful views right from your deck. Vacationing at its best!

08/22/2018 - We spent the week at this beautiful home in Blue River, Colorado - a short distance from Breckenridge. My wife and I, along with our 2 small children enjoyed fishing and hiking around Breckenridge and returned to the home giving us the vibe that we needed to recharge and relax. The deck on the back had beautiful open views of the mountains and the hot tub made for the perfect end to each day as we could relax while watching meteor showers and breathing in the fresh mountain air. Dusten was a very gracious owner who made sure we had everything we needed. The house was very clean and well-stocked with all the necessary essentials. We also loved the simple quality of the Devore. Everything was up to date and felt new and modern but still had a comfy mountain feel. Loved the couches! I will be remembering the afternoon naps for a long time! There was more than enough room for additional guests, but it was great having some alone time with the family! Can’t wait to come back!

Mountain View Home near Vail & Breckenridge with Beautiful Sunroom & Hot Tub

Cozy, comfortable, yet spacious place to stay in Summit County Colorado!

Cozy, comfortable, yet spacious place to stay in Summit County Colorado!

08/19/2018 - My family and I had a great vacation at the Barrys lovely home on a summer trip to the mountains of Colorado. The Summit House is the perfect place for a getaway with family or friends — in summer or winter. The location was an ideal home base to explore Summit County and beyond. Frisco itself is a cute little town, and the house is less than a 10-minute walk from its charming main street lined with shops and restaurants. And it’s a quick, easy drive to other mountain towns like Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and Keystone. The house itself is cozy but spacious, incredibly well stocked and appointed. Our kids particularly liked the yard, a rare find for rentals in the mountains and the hot tub, and we all enjoyed the beautiful mountain views. The beds are comfortable, and the bedrooms all have curtains and blinds, a plus when traveling with kids who wake up with the sun. There are also some great parks and playgrounds nearby. The Barrys go above and beyond with their hospitality. Their communication was great before, during and after our stay and were always responsive but never intrusive. We highly recommend staying at The Summit House, which is as warm and welcoming as its hosts. We’re already discussing when we can visit again.

08/19/2018 - Ocean views greeted me before I entered the 'Always Beachin' house in Galveston, Texas. The house was clean, fresh, and ready for me and my cubs to enjoy our weekend getaway. We immediately unpacked and walked over to the beach, only a few minutes away. We had beach towels and toys available for our use, which made our experience at the beach that much more enjoyable. We came back home, cleaned the sand off in the outside shower and heated up the grill. The cubs loved it! The house had more than enough space in the living room for the family to gather around to play games and chat. We moved our gathering to the deck once it cooled off outside to finish off the night. The beautiful ocean views were so peaceful and put us to bed each night.

08/16/2018 - My family and I chose Surfside Beach in Texas for our summer vacation. The property was in an amazing location right on the beach with two, yes two, beachfront balconies to enjoy the glorious view all day, every day. When we got there, the view was incredible, the house was beautiful and was arranged so well that not only were the 9 of us comfortable but everyone had space to really sprawl out...definitely 18 people would fit comfortably as described in the listing! The owners were awesome in their communications and provided details of area restaurants and activities to make our week truly memorable and easy! The house is well-equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry room. The beaches are really clean and not overly crowded even though it was peak season here in Texas and we found a spot every day! Since the beach is so close, everyone could conveniently come and go as they wanted to. A huge thanks to the owners for allowing the VRBO Bear and family to stay at your property!

You can't beat this beautiful townhome on the water in Florida.

07/26/2018 - My family and I traveled to Clearwater for our summer vacation. This was our first time in the area and our stay at this beautiful townhome near the beach worked out perfectly for us. The owners, William and Lindsay, were very hospitable and promptly responded to any questions we had prior to arrival and throughout our stay. They also provided a digital guestbook with clear check in/check out instructions and information on local activities/restaurants in the area. The townhome is very spacious and beautifully decorated with many high-end features. The property description and amenities were correctly described and exceeded our expectations. We had 8 people in our travel party (4 adults) and we never felt crowded. The property has a fully stocked chef’s kitchen which worked out well, as we ate most of our meals at home. The open floor plan and balcony overlooking the water allowed us to enjoy the view from every floor. We also spotted dolphins in the water on our first day, which was so exciting for the kids to see! We found supplies handy for the beach (a cooler, beach chairs, towels and sand toys). We also visited Clearwater beach, Sand Key Park, and Caladisi Island. In addition, the property has a communal pool and hot tub that the entire family enjoyed. After a morning spent at the beach, we ended our days grilling by the pool. We could not have asked for a better vacation!

07/26/2018 - This was the first vacation home my family and I have stayed in, and the entire experience in this wonderful house in Maui was perfect! The property description and amenities were correctly represented and exceeded our expectations. The owner, Mark, was immediately responsive to any questions we had prior to our visit as well as during our stay. He was extremely kind, informative, and provided many ‘cool’ ideas for activities! My family, consisting of 6 adults and 2 toddlers, were very comfortable in the spacious 3-bedroom, 2 bath house. The pictures were exactly what the house looked like. It was also very clean, and the views were incredible! We absolutely loved how the 55’ flat screen TV in the living room lowered electronically with a push of a button in order to see the panoramic mountain views from the seamless corner windows! Almost all the windows opened in the house which provided a consistent cool breeze. Each room had a standing fan, and we loved the dimmer light switches in the living, dining and kitchen areas. They were very useful when trying to put toddlers down for bed! Overall the stay was enjoyable, and we couldn’t have asked for more! We highly recommend Pookela Paradise house 2!

You will love this beautiful Villa and the breathtaking ocean views.

07/20/2018 - The Bear and his family had an AMAZING week staying in the Villa at Terranea! The entire experience was perfect from arrival to departure. First, let me tell you about the owner Helen. She was immediately responsive, very kind, and answered any questions we had. Her directions on the check in process were clear and we had no issues finding and getting into the property (exactly what you want after a long travel day). Second, let me tell you about the Villa. My kids probably summed it up best with “Wow!”. The Villa is very spacious, beautifully decorated, and extremely comfortable. We had 7 people in our family (4 adults) and we never felt crowded. It has a full kitchen and a Trader Joe’s just down the road, which allowed us to have a number of meals at home. The Villa is part of the resort, so it gets cleaned daily! While the interior was incredible, the exterior might have been even better. The Villa has a large outdoor patio that sits on a golf course and looks out over the ocean. On a clear day, you can see Catalina Island. The patio also has an outdoor fireplace which we put to use on a cool California night. There is also a private hot tub that the entire family enjoyed. Lastly, let me tell you about the resort. The resort was first class. The staff at Terranea was always responsive and willing to help with anything we needed. The resort property is beautiful and sits right on the ocean. We took daily walks along the beach path and spent time exploring the rocks and cliffs. The resort has 4 swimming pools (with different age requirements) that make it suitable for couples or families. There are multiple places to eat on property. We enjoyed happy hour at Nelson’s and nightly gelato at Sea Beans. There are also plenty of activities available at the resort, so you can be active or just relax! We really had a perfect week at the Villa at Terranea. We could not have asked for anything better!

Spyglass is by far one of life's very special places. What a view!

Spyglass is by far one of life's very special places. What a view!

07/10/2018 - As newlyweds, my wife and I found Spyglass – a lovely villa on the tiny island of Saba in the Caribbean to be the perfect vacation location. We were easily hooked after viewing the photos and learning of the rich history of this adorable island in the middle of the Dutch Caribbean. Upon arrival, we were picked up by a kind taxi driver and taken through winding roads until Spyglass appeared over the hill. We have never stayed in a more peaceful place. The view is nothing short of incredible--with the ocean to your left and Mt. Scenery and Windward Side to the right. We loved the open concept floorplan, beautiful decor and outdoor spaces –pure luxury! We were able to open both double doors leading into the main living space and allow the cool breeze to flow through the whole house – it was fabulous. Our time was spent eating at Scout’s Place, visiting the grocery store for snacks, meeting the locals and saying hello to the roaming goats on the island. On one of our days, we decided to make the climb and hike up to the top of Mt. Scenery. The trails are easily accessible and well-maintained. If you enjoy the outdoors, the trails are a great way to have a lot of fun for free. If you’re looking for the perfect spot to get away from the world, Spyglass is the place and on the top of our list. We’d do anything to go back to the Spyglass patio, pull out a book and listen to the waves. Saba is truly a treasure and Spyglass is the best way to enjoy this paradise.

06/18/2018 - My family consisting of 3 adults and 2 kids visited Orlando for our summer vacation to see Disney World theme parks and Legoland in Florida. We stayed in this lovely villa, located in a beautiful and quiet area of Swiss Waterski Resort. The owner was very hospitable and provided clear instructions for checking-in. The house was very clean, and the couch and beds were in top condition. All rooms and baths were beautifully decorated, and our kids played almost all the board games that are available during our stay. The property description and amenities were correctly described and exceeded our expectations. All basic supplies for kitchen and bathrooms were available and the owner provided enough beach towels for our family of five. We enjoyed the heated pool and spa in the evenings. During our stay, we visited the Disney Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studio, and Disney Springs; all approximately a 40-minute drive from this location. We also visited Legoland Florida and Clearwater beach which are 1-hour and 2-hour drive respectively from this location. Overall the stay was enjoyable beyond our expectations. We look forward to staying in the same villa in the future when we return to visit Orlando again.

Relax and enjoy the beatiful views right from your private balcony.

06/09/2018 - We had a wonderful time staying at Ariel Dunes in Miramar Beach, Florida. We immediately felt welcome in this beautifully beach themed condo! The kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes and cookware you could ever need to cook meals at home and enjoy them on the enormous balcony or at the dining table inside the condo! The view from the balcony was lovely, you can see the water and truly just relax on comfy patio furniture and there is even a bar area! The balcony can be accessed from both the living room and the master bedroom. The TV in the cozy living room was set up with Amazon prime and Roku to stream movies. Both bedrooms are spacious, and each have their own bathroom. We loved the blackout curtains for sleeping in and napping. Also, it was nice to have a washer and dryer, so you can wash your clothes while you’re there rather than having to pack for a full vacation. Coolers, beach toys, boogie boards and a beach umbrella are conveniently provided and it’s just a short walk across the street to the beach! If you don’t want to carry beach equipment, you can rent them. The location of the condo is ideal and close to numerous beaches and an outlet mall where there are many restaurants. We ventured to South Walton beach, a short 15-minute drive. The check in and check out process was clearly explained which made it very easy to follow. The owner Debbie was wonderful and made herself available if needed. The binder detailing instructions and information was so helpful. Overall, we had a terrific stay and definitely recommend this condo!

06/04/2018 - Honokeana Cove was like spending your days in paradise! It is a private community with its own private beach that offers outstanding snorkeling, sea turtles and turquoise calm ocean. What else you could wish for? The condo itself is very cozy and comes equipped with everything you need and more. The owners do really care about every detail at this apartment. There were three of us staying, so we used both king beds and the sofa bed - all were comfortable. Having AC in each room made it very comfortable. The private deck overlooking the beach was amazing. We had all our meals there and enjoyed the view while dining. This condo is within a five minute drive to the beaches, shops, restaurants and even the farmers market. You will find numerous beach supplies there (swim masks, fins, umbrella, beach chairs, even life vests for the children). We would definitely stay here again!

06/04/2018 - The Bear and his friends traveled to South Padre Island, the prettiest sandy white beach in Texas! The private condo complex was in a great location – right on the quiet and secluded beach with an amazing view of the ocean and dunes, close to the causeway near local attractions and restaurants. Food and drinks at Pier 19 were delicious and reasonably priced. South Padre Island is a small island and it did not take us longer than 10 minutes to travel down the main road. Prior to arriving, the owner provided us with very clear instructions and check-in was quick and easy. The condo was very clean, updated and comfortable with a great layout and spectacular views. Even the side view from the Master bedroom was lovely! The couch and beds were very comfortable. The bed sheets and towels were very soft. The kitchen has a large counter top with bar seating which allows for easy food preparation while still offering a workspace for those having to work a little while on vacation. The property description and amenities were adequately outlined and exceeded our expectations. The owner provides beach chairs as well which was a nice touch. The condo complex grounds and amenities are well-kept. There are showers to wash off from the beach, which helps keep the sand out of the condo. The pool, hot tub and tennis courts were very well-kept, and the pool felt great. Overall, our stay was very enjoyable, and we look forward to coming back!

Enjoy mountain and lake views morning, noon or night. Nothing's better!

05/22/2018 - We enjoyed our stay on Flathead Lake in the beautiful state of Montana. There is so much to do or not to do at this property! Our days were spent on the lake, swimming off the dock after basking in the warm sun. Spending long days in the sun made for a tired bear to crawl into his comfy down bed and just before falling fast asleep being able to lookout over the lake lit with homes. This is the life!!! Long days made for sleeping in, not quite hibernation - ha! A few things we found enjoyable were sitting and enjoying the views from the porch swing, just being still with a cup of gourmet coffee or snuggled up in the great room as the suns setting. There was nothing like taking an evening stroll down the peninsula among the cherry trees in blossom. Slow afternoons were spent playing board games with the kiddos or sneaking away to read, a quick game of ping pong before an early evening shower. The house is so big, it is nice to have your own privacy then rejoin the group to catch up over dinner in the dining hall, all while taking in the open breeze from the breezeway. Smores afterwards to take you back to being a cub! Nothing is better!

This Venice apartment is in the most amazing lcation! A dream come true.

05/13/2018 - The bear and his friends journeyed to historic Venice, Italy. We met Paola outside the magnificent and historic La Fenice Theater – a gorgeous late 18th century opera house. After graciously leaving us with a map of all the local amenities of Venice, we explored the city. We were able to easily navigate our way through charming but labyrinthine and medieval alleyways; thanks to the detailed map we were provided. The location of the apartment is ideal with no more than a 5 to 10-minute walk to all the major attractions in Venice. In fact, most mornings, we would grab a quick coffee at San Marco square simply because we were so close. The apartment itself has every convenience you could need for your stay. This home away from home is a dream come true! We rose each morning as the dawn light shined upon San Marco Basilica. Thank you so much Furio and Paola for being so attentive, and for sharing your home with us!

05/06/2018 - The Bear and his family traveled to South Padre Island. The location is superb - right off the Queen Isabella Causeway, so you don’t have to fight island traffic. With the island being small, it’s easily travelable to visit all the restaurants, sightseeing activities and shops via bicycle, which, conveniently, there are two supplied with the condo! Wendy, the owner, has thought of everything to accommodate her guests, including beach gear (towels, bags, toys, etc.). In addition, she was very helpful with little details and even supplied us a list of their “favorite things” which became our insider guide in finding the best food and activities on and around the island. The condo itself is very clean, updated and extremely comfortable. The views are spectacular and are such an added value. The kitchen has a huge bar/counter top which allows for easy food preparation while still offering a workspace for those having to work a little while on vacation. The condo complex grounds and amenities are well-kept. There are showers to wash off from the beach, which helps keep the sand out of your condo! The pool and hot tub area are clean as well. Overall, our stay was enjoyable and easy. The condo complex is quiet, and since the beach is towards the south end of the island it seemed to help reduce the number of people on the beach. We will be back as it was an incredibly effortless vacation – as it should be!

Beach Front luxury with the comforts of home!

05/05/2018 - The VRBO bear and family were living the high life in this luxurious oceanfront condo in Jacó, Costa Rica. This spacious condo has a beautiful, open floor design, and a large patio with a beach view that made it easy to kick back and relax. The condo is fully equipped with everything you may need for the beach. The weather here is amazing, which is perfect for walks on the beach. There is also an elegant pool I could see right outside the bedroom window, a great place to make a splash and tan my fur! Each room had its own, large TV, which made every night a movie night in Jacó. When I’m all dry and ready to go out at night, I can put my paws on the wheel and drive right down the road to downtown Jacó, where there are endless restaurants, bars, and shops. For the nights where I’m feeling lucky, there is an extravagant casino in walking distance from the room (and by the way, blackjack is my favorite). All in all, the experience here is once in a lifetime, and this condo is the by far my favorite place to stay!

04/20/2018 - My friends and I visited La Paz for a spring birthday getaway and bar none, our group of ten had the BEST trip ever! The property is simply stunning and so spacious, it allowed us each our own space to cook, dance, and hang out and just have fun! It was great for our group and would be great for families that want communal time but also some privacy! We spent most of our time outside in the enormous pool gazing at the amazing views. The pool and fire pit were the main focal points of the trips, as we spent many late nights soaking in the Jacuzzi and sitting by the fire! Bev and Rich were very hospitable hosts. Bev set us up with a great driver who took us on all our Baja excursions. What a lifesaver! I cannot recommend this property enough, and will look to come back again soon!

As we drove through beautiful countryside we grew more anxious to get to our destination. When we arrived we were not disappointed, in fact we were blown away when we turned down the road and saw the property for the first time. The location is about 10 minutes from the lake and nestled on a quite forest road. The property was equipped with anything that you could need, including washer/dryer, wifi, BBQ, hot tub and a full kitchen. In the area, there are lots to do like hiking, boating, swimming as well as some great restaurants/stores in town. We checked out Grateful Head Pizza, Abendigo’s and WhipPoorWill, to name a few. I wanted to personally thank the owner for such a great experience. He went above and beyond to make sure our stay was memorable. We are looking forward to coming back.

03/25/2018 - I stayed with my family at Tom and Rosemary’s lovely home in Cabo San Lucas and could not have had a better time. Located in a quiet little neighborhood up on the mountain, we felt like a local and not a tourist. Our stay included the 2nd level of the home with our own private access and we barely saw Tom and Rosemary, the hospitable hosts who live upstairs on the 3rd level since they have their own access as well. The view from the front deck over the Pacific was amazing. Getting up in the morning and enjoying the rising sun with our coffee as we watched the birds come to life and fleet of charter boats passing by, was our favorite. Several times we saw a fleet of whale watcher boats passing by, following humpback whales providing a spectacular performance. The binoculars provided by Tom came in very handy. The full-size kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for preparing meals. The living room has plenty of seating and the TV set provided enough opportunity to get distracted in the evening or listen to some music in the morning. The bathrooms were clean, and showers had warm water. The maid service was a nice bonus too. The house also has several other amenities worth mentioning, such as several gallons of drinking water available to you. The two-burner gas grill is excellent, a wood fireplace on the front deck is a nice plus too. The pool in the courtyard was super clean and well maintained. There are also two sets of snorkeling gear, parasols and a cooler available to take with you for your beach trips. The provided transportation was so helpful, and Tom and Rosemary’s suggestions for groceries, restaurants, beaches and booking tours were helpful as well. We hope to see them again some time.

03/23/2018 - We absolutely loved our stay at Woodmoor in Breckenridge, Colorado. Before we even arrived, Sarah was in constant communication with us to ensure that we had the best experience possible. The home was easy to access, even in the mountains, and was conveniently located next to a free bus route that took us right into Breckenridge. From the moment you step up to the house, you can tell that it was built with care. The stone finished garage and nice wooden fixtures fit well with the rugged mountain landscape. The home was very clean and had all amenities you could ask for on a mountain trip! The internet and cable worked great, but we spent most of our time gasping at the gorgeous backyard view. The back of the house opens to a mountain side that looks down on Breckenridge. The view is by far the greatest attribute of the house. To top it off, the hot tub is located on the top floor and has the same view, which were perfect after a long day of skiing. We utilized the pool table and enjoyed the comfortable furniture. Every morning we walked to the end of the road to take the free shuttle into town and then had a great time skiing in Breckenridge. Overall the trip was amazing, and we could not have had a better experience with Sarah!

You can enjoy the ocean views right from your balcony.

03/17/2018 - Our two bear clans drove here from Texas and after such a long drive we were so happy to see the views this property had. This is a corner unit which means there is a partial wraparound on the balcony where a wall would usually be and WOW, you can see the beach for miles. If that was not enough, we also had front row seats to amazing sunsets every night. The mama bears were up early to enjoy reserved, cushioned beach chairs with umbrellas – it was so convenient to be staying right on the beach! There was one day it was chilly, so we happily took advantage of the heater lagoon pool. The living space is open with a comfy leather couch as well as two recliners in front of a large flat screen TV where we caught a few movies over Netflix as well as March Madness. There was a wet bar with the popular Margarita blender. The kitchen also had a bar top where the cubs were able to eat their breakfast. The beds were very comfy, and all the linens and towels were all hotel quality. Some of the bedrooms and bathrooms where completely themed which reminded you where you were on vacation. The convenience of staying across from Pier Park was a true perk of this property. A really great variety of restaurants and live music most days made the place holiday central. There were at least four ice cream parlors the cubs had their choice of and yes, they tried them all during our stay! We were also 15 min drive away from Rosemary Beach and the Donut Hole on the way was a must stop. On top of the beautiful condo, Debbie was incredibly responsive throughout the stay and more than happy to assist with all our questions.

This is one of my all time favorite cabins just miles from the Grand Canyon.

03/15/2018 - If there is one place that cannot be experienced through the lens of a camera or YouTube video, it is the majestic beauty of the mountains and canyons of Arizona. The Cabin on the 14th Tee is on my all-time favorite list of cabins to return to in the future. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, with the homes nestled around native pines that frame every view from the back wall of windows and sliding doors. The spacious floor plan and multiple living areas provide ample room for bears and cubs to relax together and just enough separation for time apart. The library includes an extensive collection of books, movies, and board games. I have played my fair share of Scrabble, but this is the first time I experienced the Onyx Edition. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking a family meal, with modern appliances and a large dining room table. With a busy schedule, there isn’t always time to cook at home. I will admit that Bears sometimes get funny looks at restaurants, but we felt right at home at Brandy’s on Cedar Avenue. Google it for bakery and food pics, trust me. Flagstaff is an ideal jumping off point for day trips to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, and Canyon de Chelly. There are also local sights like Walnut Canyon National Monument where you can experience ancient cliff dwellings and amazing views in a very accessible location. I did have one regret when leaving The Cabin on the 14th Tee…not adding a few extra days to the stay. Thank you, Charles and Zoe, for a wonderful and unforgettable vacation!

You can't beat the views or the beauty of this lovely Caribbean cottage.

03/14/2018 - We absolutely loved our stay at the cottage. I can't decide what was more beautiful, the breathtaking landscaped entry, the updated kitchen and interior decor, or the gorgeous turquoise waters right outside our doorstep. The pictures just don't do it justice! Everything was immaculate and updated. The kitchen has state of the art appliances, the bedroom has a beautiful waterfront view, the bathrooms were updated, and there were personal island touches throughout the house. We woke up to the sun peering through the balcony sliding door, to enjoy the serene view of the water. Little private beaches were just a short kayak ride from the cottage. We kayaked to a secret beach and spent the day taking in the views and the warm sunny weather. The water is so clear and the perfect temperature to compliment the breezy air. The cottage is located on the well-known area, famous for its scenic views and multi-shades of blue waters. It was very close restaurants and the grocery store. The fresh fish, whether prepared at home or at a restaurant was unbeatable! The only thing that could match the paradise like accommodations was the hospitality. Heather was so kind and generous. She was fast to respond and answer any questions, gave clear directions on how to get to the cottage, and personalized our visit with sweet gestures to celebrate our recent wedding. We loved it and definitely hope to be invited back for years to come!

We had plenty of space, a beautiful open kitchen which we used many nights and well-kept amenities - it was a true luxurious vacation. We were provided with robes in our bathrooms, comfortable beds, and a balcony we spent many hours on, watching whales and eating breakfast. We used the adult pool which was quiet and lovely and enjoyed the short walk to the pool and beach, admiring the lush landscape. It was a dream vacation and I hope to stay again in this lovely Wailea villa!

The villa had comfortable furniture and several amenities to make our stay feel like we were at home. The five of us stayed in both sections of the villa and had ample amounts of space to cook/eat together and also go to our separate rooms for some downtime. Our gracious host made sure we had plenty of information on local things-to-do, restaurants, and even the weather so we could make the most of our time. We ventured out most days to either grab a bite or enjoy the perfect sand and water on the beach. We particularly enjoyed The Crab Trap restaurant since it is directly across the street from the villa, has a great food and beverage selection, and a playground out back for the kids! We truly enjoyed our white sand holiday getaway and look forward to returning this summer!

12/26/2017 - Our stay at the Dove’s Rest Fortress was absolutely amazing. We could not have picked a better place to spend our Christmas holiday – they even had an adorable little Christmas tree already decorated and lit when we arrived! While this property is a 2 bed/2 bath, it was just the bear, a friend, and our two dogs, so we only utilized one half of the property. Each morning, we enjoyed watching the pink and purple sunrise come up over the canyon from the back deck and kitchen. The fireplace gave us that wonderful holiday feel and we enjoyed having the Apple TV to watch movies after dark. The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances, and I made a huge array of meals for our Christmas holiday – from homemade ramen, to reverse seared ribeye, to quiche, to a full ham dinner with all the usual Christmas holiday side dishes. This would be such a fun place to go back to with family or another couple! It was a quick (10 minute) drive to Palo Duro Canyon State Park where we hiked the Lighthouse Trail and the Rock Garden Trail. Our dogs fully enjoyed exploring the canyon around us and we were so appreciative that, not only were dogs allowed at the property, but they stay for free! Overall, this was a truly fantastic holiday getaway and we can’t wait to stay at another Dove’s Rest property soon!

12/26/2017 - The VRBO Bear and family enjoyed their Christmas holiday in this beautiful cabin in Ridgway, Colorado. The front door is just steps away from a beautiful walking trail surrounded by the beautiful mountains – a winter wonderland! The house itself was decorated beautifully for the holidays and there was effort in every room to make it feel like home. There were seven of us and we had plenty of space to play games, cook together, relax and enjoy each other’s company as we sat by the cozy, warm fireplace. The bear could not have asked for more! Marsha, the owner went above and beyond as a host, giving tips on hiking trails and updating us on the weather. She suggested a short 15 minute drive to the Hot Springs, in Ouray. The chilly wintry air made our soak in the hot springs so inviting. We stopped by some tourist attractions in Ridgway and since we are John Wayne fans, we ate at the True Grit Café and stopped by the Outlaw Saloon, where John Wayne’s hat and signed autograph are placed, and both having ties to his films. We enjoyed spending a ‘white’ Christmas here and since we are from Texas, it was a first! We are so thankful for this experience and will cherish these memories forever.
