Kenny and Izumi live in Santa Monica and enjoy our life near the beach. Kenny is a real estate professional working in Westside of L.A. since mid-80s.. Izumi is a freelance photographer with a background in documentary TV and film for over 20 years.

We are both very much into self-growth and spirituality striving for conscious living every day. We are also both very active in various professional as well as community-based organizations always being of service to others.

We are truly blessed to have a life in a city near the ocean as well as in the mountains where we can easily find a way to connect to the Source.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2005

When Kenny’s daughter was a high school senior, we took her and a bunch of her friends to Big Bear for snow boarding. Since we don’t do downhill skiing, we were driving around checking out the community while the girls were on the slope. We came across some open houses in the area and noticed the prices compared to the rapidly inflating home prices in Los Angeles. We learned many of the homes on the market in the Big Bear were weekend homes. And they were very affordable.

Hmmm, weekend home… That’s how we got the idea. But we didn’t like Big Bear because it felt too congested and too hard to get to. Then Izumi remembered about the Frazier Mountains where she used to go cross-country skiing with friends. She also had a few different friends who lived in the area, particularly in Pine Mountain Club, which is the inner most community in Frazier Mountains.

Because the highest peak is 8,900 feet (Mt. Pinos), there isn’t downhill skiing area. At the same time, there is enough snow to do all kinds of other snow related activities. Without the downhill ski, it eliminates certain kind of crowd, which makes the area quieter. Also, being only 80-miles north of Los Angeles straight up on Interstate 5, it makes it very accessible. Yet once you’re here, it feels so far away.

We love the fact that our cell phones don’t work. Despite the relative proximity to the city, it really feels like we’ve come far away. It’s quiet, and the air is always fresh.

We love the small community. As we get to know more people in the community, we feel cozy yet we’re not on top of each other. We have neighbors that watch out for our property while we still feel very private staying here.

Our property is located close enough to be able to walk to the village through beautiful trails in the woods but not too close to hear the commotion when there are events. We love taking a walk through the path for our favorite chocolate croissant or full breakfast in the village.

The best part of our property is our hot tub on the deck, which is the best seat in the house for star gazing.

We had a wonderful stay at the Mountain Sanctuary, over Christmas and a few days following it. We were hoping for snow (and since most of the pictures featured snow, we kind of expected it), but it wasn't to be. Even Big Bear didn't have xmas snow this year. The sad reality of Climate Change. Happily, we found snow at 9,000 feet on top of Mt Pinos (well, enough to sled in for our 3- and 5-year olds, but not much). Our two young kids shared the Queen bed and were happy as mice, and we loved the firm King bed. Jacuzzi under the stars (and in the morning, in 48 degree weather!) was divine. The kitchen is totally pimped out with modern equipment. Really sweet small town, lots of hikes, and a very quiet mountainous area made for the perfect getaway for our family of four.

Quiet, Convenient Retreat

Beautiful! The cabin was clean, nicely furnished with all the comforts of home, plus a fantastic hot tub. The view from the family room is full of tall trees with the mountains in the background. Fireplace in family room is also very nice. There are other cabins/homes nearby but not so close that they take away from the retreat-like feel. It was easy to find, and interaction with the owners was straightforward. Definitely would like to stay here again. The cleanup before departure was not burdensome at all. A very quiet mountain location, definitely a great alternative to Mammoth or Big Bear. We weren't there during snow season, so can't comment about snow-related activities, but we did get a light dusting of snow at the end of Nov. The bakery in the village is wonderful.

In looking for a place for our very small destination wedding, we stumbled upon Casa Bellini. And we are very happy we did. Casa Bellini is just as it was described and more. The pictures posted on the website were a completely accurate representation of the beautiful house. Izumi and Kenny were exceptionally helpful from beginning to end. When we told them we wanted to get married in Pine Mountain Club, they were quick to tell us about several potential beautiful locations.
The house had everything that we needed from kitchen appliances to a great DVD selection. The balcony spa was absolutely amazing for stargazing. The fireplace was wonderful on the chilly nights.
We would absolutely recommend this to a friend.

Lovely getaway

Mountain Sanctuary is a terrific getaway just about 90 minutes from LA. The drive took no time and Pine Mountain is such a beautiful area! Izumis directions and communication before, during, and after was perfect and very pleasant. The 2 bedrm home in the woods is absolutely lovely and and incredibly well cared for. VERY clean too. The decor is modern, tasteful, and ideal for such a relaxing environment. There were very specific and clear instructions for anything I needed to know, or use. There is also great guides on what to do in the area. The hosts have really thought of everything. There are 2 nice size decks outside and a fabulous (and incredibly clean) hot tub. In the kitchen there is every kind of pot or pan you would need, all great quality. You really just need to bring food and you are set! I needed a solo getaway and couldn't have found a better place. I would definitely visit again, and highly recommend it to everyone. I feel lucky to have found this gem! Thank you to the hosts! See you again soon.
