Big Bear Fourth of July Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for two families, each with two adults and two small children between the ages of 6 and 2. And we absolutely enjoyed the Lakefront Serenity property over Fourth of July weekend, 2014. We had an absolute great time at this cabin, and it was exactly what we had been hoping for! Thank you! The kids had so much fun and all 8 of us had a wonderful vacation. We will be in touch again when we are looking for another chance to getaway, and hope to be able to use the cabin.

From the very initial contact with the owners - the experience and process was extremely simple. The owners were easily reachable, the process of reserving the property went smooth. Any questions, no matter how many, or how silly I had were answered promptly. Our families enjoyed the hot tub, fishing off the dock, and playing games in the backyard, and cooking in the large kitchen. We would recommend this property.

Not Exactly Paradisiac

  • 2 of 5
We rented this property for two families, each with two adults and two small children between 3 and 5. The description is accurate in that it is on the lake, and the kitchen and bathrooms have been remodeled. There is one bedroom downstairs with a bathroom and two bedrooms upstairs with a bathroom and a sort of "playroom" leading to one of the bedrooms. The house was clean when we arrived.
However, there were a few notable problems with this property: First, while the kitchen and bathrooms have been remodeled, the house itself and the furniture, carpets and contents are pretty old and dirty. The upstairs beams creak loudly every time you walk, so if you are downstairs trying to sleep, you will hear everything that's going on upstairs. Second, you have to drive your own trash away from the property, into some allowed trash areas that they provide you an address for. This became an inconvenience for us. Third, be aware that the yard is not fenced- if you bring a dog, they may escape and they most likely will go swimming in the lake. More importantly, it is not a friendly yard for small kids. There is a ramp that leads to a dock; the railings of the ramp are not safe for small children. Of course, the dock is also a looming danger. Fourth, even though the listing says that it's managed by the owner, there is a management firm in the picture. There appears to be quite a bit lost in translation from the management firm to the owner and back. For example, the oven was not working when we arrived and nobody warned us. We had brought a frozen pizza for dinner, but had to change plans when we realized that the oven wasn't working (not easily achieved with tired & hungry little boys) and then call to report the problem which took a few calls back and forth to arrange for the fix. Lastly and most bothersome, after we left, the management firm "found" one of the bunk beds broken and we were held responsible for the break. They claimed that the kids had been jumping on the bed (which they had not- how do you jump on the bottom of a bunk bed without hitting your head?) and the owners took the money to replace the bed from our security deposit. We had no recourse, even though all of the beds were in pretty sorry state to begin with and we are certain that it wasn't our kids who broke that particular one. Bottom line: don't stay at this house unless you check thoroughly all of the furniture and fixtures upon arrival.

Owner's Response: First of all, this renter is upset about being charged for damage caused to the Bunk beds during their stay, as reported by our property manager that lives in Big Bear who is responsible for damage checks, repairs, cleaning and maintenance of our home on Metcalf Bay, as we do not live in Big Bear.

Secondly I would like to address some of the items listed in this e-mail.
1. The furniture is several years old and as a result of constant renters it is not in PERFECT condition. It is a rental house after all.
2. Yes, you can hear people walking around upstairs if you are down stairs. In almost all two story houses you can hear noises, even million dollar ones.
3. ALL Rental properties in Big Bear REQUIRE that all trash be taken to one of the two designated trash areas. The closest site to our home is only about a mile from our home.
4. We share the dock with our neighbor, therefore one side of our back yard is not fenced in. The lake is a "fence" to the back yard. It's nice and open which is one of the benefits of being on the lake. We were completely honest with these renters when telling them that it is a fairly open. We have children and a dog of our own, and keep watch on them at all times, just at most parents do. We require all small children to wear a life vest or be accompanied by an adult when going near or on the dock.
5. We did let these renters know that the oven was not working and the part would be installed sometime on that Friday. Our property manager was not sure what time it would be installed and agreed to work these renters to make sure it was done while they were there. WE had no control of the parts delivery or the repair man. The part was replaced and these renters had use of the oven for the rest of their stay.
6. Our property manager does an inspection both before and after renters stay in our home. We always encourage our renters to let us know if something is broken when they arrive so they will not be responsible for the damage. These renters never reported the bunk beds broken when they arrived. My property manager reported it broken after these renters left.

Big Bear Lake July getaway

  • 5 of 5
Great, quiet location. The home was exactly as advertised. Highs in the mid 70's. Lows in the 60's. That sure beats the AZ heat.

Greatest getaway in a while !!!

  • 5 of 5
This super comfortable and quiet cabin by the lake front of big bear is fantastic. We were looking for a getaway from palm springs for a few days, and that is not an easy task if you have a couple of dogs. The owners here had no problem with pets, and to the comfort, this is one of the best cabins i have ever stayed in big bear ca. Highly recommended A+++

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is my first time to write a review on a property and I had such a good time with my family that I feel that it deserves one. I rented this property on 10/29-11/1. From the very beginning, the owners were easily reachable and the process of reserving the property went very smooth. Any questions I had were answered promptly. When we arrived, it was more than I expected. The location was amazing! We spent alot of time in the backyard and we actually caught a fish on the dock! The bedrooms were all large and we really liked the upgraded bathrooms and kitchen. The kitchen was FULLY stocked! Anything you need, it's there! We appreciate the condiments and seasonings that were already there too. We also enjoyed the fire place, flat screen tv, board games, foosball, and having the wireless internet. Everything was convenient to the village, grocery stores, marina, hiking trail, Big Bear Blvd, and so on...This place was absolutely wonderful and so are the owners! Thank you Francine and Steve for having us in your beautiful home. Will definitely recommend it to anyone!

Wonderful vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed the Lakefront Serenity property over Labor Day weekend, 2011. The property was clean and well-kept. It was a safe and enjoyable respite. Our family enjoyed fishing, playing games in the well-tended backyard, sliding downt he Alpine Slide, and cooking in the large kitchen. The Big Bear community proved to be child and family friendly. We would recommend this property.
