About Jim Ostrich (owner)

Live in San Diego, always loved coming to visit Big Bear, found this house in Eagle Point (yes there are bald eagles living her) right across the street from the lake, with lake access. Thought this was a cool home for family / friend vacations and am offering it for rent when we are not there!

Jim Ostrich (owner) purchased this house in 2012

Why Jim Ostrich (owner) chose Big Bear Lake

Nearness to the lake, with public lake access for kayak or canoe launching / fishing. Walking distance to Snow Summitt overflow / shuttle parking lot, the Village for shopping or eating, as well as nearby Meadow Park (4th of July Fireworks) swimming and playing with kids. Ideal location!

What makes this house unique

I like the Garden RR train setup myself, but its not available to the renters do the fragile / high price nature of the trains!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here. The cabin was clean and everything worked perfect. I couldn't ask for a better location. One drawback are all the security cameras that seem to be everywhere you looked (overlooking the jacuzzi, garage, patio etc...), with a "command center" in the master bedroom, it made some of us a little uncomfortable. But all in all it was a great cabin, in a great location.

Owner's Response: Security cameras, keep the home secure from damage, crime etc. If you are an honest person and act responsibly, check in / out on time, there should be no issue. Per Calif Law no cameras are allowed inside a rental home.

Holiday stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented out this big cabin for 14 of us as a vacation rental for a few days during the holidays. The cabin is huge and spacious. It also has a great living room area, and dining table where we all were able to enjoy some quality time together. It's near the village and restaurants and some great areas to ski, tube, or snowboard. The cabin had hot water for all to take showers and the nest thermostat worked very well. Also, we had an issue where there was a leak in one of the bathrooms that resulted in us not being able to use one bathroom. I emailed the owner and he sent someone right away to fix the leak and replace the entire toilet. It all occurred within a few hours time and we were able to use both restrooms again.

The reason I'm giving this cabin four stars is not because of our stay - our stay was wonderful and we had a good time. On the same night we discovered that the bathroom was leaking, we also discovered that the sofa sleeper was broken. I emailed the owner the next day about the two issues but with the sofa sleeper, i said that it wasn't urgent because we had found a way to still make sure everyone had a sleeping arrangement. After we left the cabin, the owner emailed me telling me that it was my fault that the sofa sleeper was broken and that someone from our family must have broken it. Mind you, we are all grown adults and were on a family vacation - no one was jumping on any couch or bed, let alone went next to the sofa sleeper until we were about to pull it out to sleep on. That's when we realized it was slanted. The owner said that his housekeepers check the house in detail when a guest leaves and said that we had broken the sofa sleeper. Well if the housekeepers checked the house before we got there, they would have noticed the leak in the bathroom that we had to deal with. We were very upset by the accusation that the owner put on us. We cleaned the entire kitchen and family room before we left and the owner emailed and got upset that all blankets were not put back in their right place. We are a very trusting group and would never damage property. Luckily his housekeepers fixed the sofa sleeper (that we did not break) and it did not have to come out of our security deposit. Just want to let folks know to check the house in its entirety and if you do find something wrong, to let the owner know right away before you are asked to pay for it.

Owner's Response: This tenant lied about having only adults, and no children staying in the house (security camera footage confirmed this). Then , wanted me to believe her story that "no one bent the sleeper sofa bed" which the housekeepers found broken upon her departure. The housekeepers fixed the sofa bed, and this guest received 100% of their deposit back. I wouldn't put much credence in her statement that she wasn't treated fairly. I believe she was treated MORE than fairly. Every guest can and is encouraged to sign up for damage insurance ($49), or just control your party so the house and furniture are not damaged.

Wonderful family memories

  • 5 of 5

This is a great comfortable place for a large family or multiple families to share. There are 5 bedrooms all set up with double/queen/king beds. That is rare....most I looked at in the past were dorm style with bunks only. There is a nice large dining table for at least 14 to sit down to together. Nice cozy carpet in the living area but easy to care for flooring in the kitchen and eating area. Also a good size area to serve buffet style meals. Pool table downstairs set up in a spacious area so you can actually enjoy playing,and the spa is really nice with festive lights. We did have a couple of problems with the coffee maker and ice maker and were pleasantly surprised that the same day with emailed the owner, one of his housekeepers arrived with a brand new coffee maker in tow. Love the large deck and really nice propane bbq. The only challenge to the house is there is just one oven and it is a bit small.....one night we had a traditional turkey, yams, veggie meal and I did have to be creative to get everything done at the same time. All appliances work well however and there is plenty of hot water thanks to a brand new water heater. We are hoping to enjoy this home many times again!

Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place for large families. Close to lake. Took Grand-kids fishing. Had a great time. Cabin was clean and everything in working order upon arrival. liked large dinning room table. Was able to seat all 13 family members down for Thanksgiving meal. Large game room downstairs made it nice for the kids to play and watch movies. Very enjoyable time.

Great Little Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great weekend stay at this cabin. Came with other couples and we each got our own room with at least a queen bed which can be difficult to find. Had some difficulty with the refrigerator but the owner was responsive and sent someone to have a look during our stay. Everyone enjoyed the large dining room table, made it a great gathering place for meals. The pool table and spa were also a hit.

Owner's Response: Nothine was wrong with the fridge (its brand new) the guests had put in all the food they brought up the hill, and left the door open for a while, so when they checked again, the fridge was not "cold" as it takes some time to cool back down after stocking the fridge with the door open. My maintenance man, went over and found nothing wrong. The guests agreed the fridge was working and getting all their food cold, but the door needs to stay closed for a while to get the temp down to normal.

Another Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have taken my HS cross country team to this house for preseason training. The kids had plenty of space and enjoyed shooting pool and hanging around the house. (when they were not running)
