Entrepreneur, family man, love to travel and sample fine wines.

Blessed to live in a beautiful part of the world. Happy to share our comfortable vacation home with other travelers and guests.

Fernando Alvarez purchased this house in 2007

We lived in Idyllwild for 12 years full time. Have owned three homes in this town. When we first viewed this house it was love at first sight. This house had it all: The charm and coziness of a mountain home. An architecturally interesting structure. All the comforts and conveniences of a modern home. The Milky Way visible to the naked eye on a clear night. There is even a wine cellar partially underground!

Beautiful scenery is evident from every window. Surrounded by trees but still bright and sunny. A quiet neighborhood adjacent to the National Forest. A short 5 minute drive or a leisurely 20 minute walk to town. This house had all we desired.

Chistmas in Idyllwild

We had an amazing holiday!The house was beautiful,clean and very homey,yet had all the modern necessities.We truly felt very welcome here.There was 4 of us,my mother in law,my husband and our son Jake.He loved the jacuzzi!There are speakers on the deck to enjoy the music while in the jacuzzi,too.

The house has views of the mountains and forest from just about every room.In the early mornings, you could sit out on the deck and see the deer wandering below.Birds of all types came up to eat off of the deck,too.
At night there were a million stars to view.

You can take nice strolls up and down the quiet street.We even went on an adventure out into the forest.

The house had just about everything you needed for Christmas dinner and baking.We even had some family come to visit for the day and there was plenty of room for all.The kitchen has great counter space for serving into the dining room area.

I would defintely recommend this home to family and friends.
Fernando left detailed information but was available throughout the stay if there was a question,too.Home is just a few minutes from town and we were able to enjoy the shops as well.
We hope to stay there again!!
The day we left it started snowing,hopefully our next stay we will be able to enjoy the snow!
Thank you Fernando!!

Great weekend getaway!

We had a wonderful time spending the weekend in Fernando's home. There were 7 of us (4 adults, 3 kids) and there was plenty of room for all of us to do our own thing without getting in each other's way and still enjoy some quality family time. The home was lovely and beautifully decorated and equipped and was incredibly comfortable. You can tell the homeowners have a comfortable yet tasteful style - it was easy to feel like it was our own home.

The kitchen was very modern and well-stocked and the eating areas (two of them!) convenient - the "sunroom" even provided beautiful views. The kids had a blast on the deck in the snow and we felt safe having them play out there - very important. The office area was away from the "action" so I could get some things done in peace and yet still close enough to stay involved with what was going on. Fernando, the host, left a detailed instruction sheet that answered our questions before we even asked them - nice touch. We definitely want to come back - adults only! - and try out the hot tub when the weather is more suitable.

Again, thank you for a very relaxing, mellow, fun weekend.

Fernando has a beautifully designed home with all the amenities you could ask for including a deep tub that our kids really enjoyed taking baths in. Enjoy spectacular views at sunrise and sunset from the hot tub. We loved hearing all the birds and watching a couple of families of quails forage for food below the deck. Town is just a couple of minutes away.

Great New Years Retreat

Charming place, great views, quiet, and a great location. Really is a stunning home and a lovely place to stay. Best part of all was the owners. Very nice, very informative, and always available. Always answered questions quickly and had great hiking suggestions. This is my 6th time renting a property and this experience was probably the best.

Idyllwild was very charming with plenty to do and great restaurants and great hiking.

Property was very clean, very well maintained.

The following are not really complaints but maybe some things to consider if your considering renting the property.

The owner suggests not parking in the driveway. It is way more convenient parking on the street and was not a problem. The driveway is very steep and there's no entrance to the front door from that area.

The hot tub is just big enough just for 2 people and that's it.

I'd check with the owner about the fridge prior to arrival. It had quite a large amount of food in it when we showed up which made it very difficult to fit our groceries for cooking. It wasn't clear what was off limits for consumption or what had been simply left by the previous renter which either way didn't seem to appetizing so we just worked around it.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Our policy is to leave the frig pretty much empty except for condiments and a few frozen staples. The food you found was left over from a previous guest but was not removed due to an oversight by our housekeeping team. They have been made aware. Thanks for the observation.

perfect mountain getaway

This is the ideal home for an Idyllwild vacation. The home is beautiful, perfectly clean, very private, and a 5 minute ride to the center of town. Unlike many homes that are designated for vacation rentals, this house feels like a home - warm and inviting with tasteful furniture and appointments. The appliances are all new and high end, and the views are breathtaking. Having looked around "the hill" at other neighborhoods and rental homes, unequivocally this home has it all: location, ambiance, privacy, proximity to adventure etc. Fernando was wonderful: responsive and helpful prior to our arrival, and he made sure we knew that he was readily available if needed for anything.(we didn't need anything. Everything was perfect.)
I would highly recommend this property to anyone going to Idyllwild. Having looked around at other properties "on the hill" - there is no doubt that we will stay here when we return to Idyllwild. The Lestaks, Thousand Oaks, CA
