Overview

Idyllwild House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Unlike many houses in Idyllwild that are nestled completely in the pine trees, the Dome is perched on the edge of Crestview Drive and offers vistas to the ocean on the clearest days. The Dome covers over 1.5 acres of land. Watch the sunset every evening from the steamy hot tub, or adjacent deck, eat outside or in, or cuddle up in front of one or all of the three interior fireplaces arranged off of the central lava rock chimney. The living room has a soaring 26-foot ceiling that encompasses one third of the dome. The house is built adjacent to a 40-foot high rock formation that has Native American acorn grinding bowls carved into the rock at the highest point with the best views of the valley below. Imagine standing out on the deck and watching the deer climb up the hillside. Spend your evening gazing at the stars as they appear close enough to touch. Enjoy your moment on top of the world in the ever famous "Dramatic Geodesic Dome".

Why Monica chose Inland Empire

We love Idyllwild - the lack of downhill skiing creates a low-key, relaxed little town, and the art school adds a creative edge to the culture of the place. This is a perfect town to appreciate nature being there are no street and city lights. Regardless of your idea of enjoyments, Idyllwild is a place for anyone.

What makes this house unique

There is no place on earth like the west facing deck in the morning, except of course, the hot tub at sunset, or in the snow.......

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Everyone in our group cannot stop saying how wonderful the house was. The house was so big and lovely, and the basketball hoop was AWESOME. The kids loved it so much."

Hot Weekend Up in Idyllwild

  • 4 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was very helpful.

The vacation rental was spotless.

I was very happy with the location.

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

Very beautiful setting. The views from the deck, living room, hot tub, everywhere are spectacular. The cabin is super neat. It was very hot that weekend and there is not really any air conditioning and the upstairs rooms were very warm at night... I would recommend the cabin with the exception of the middle of summer when temperatures get up in the high 90s.

Hi there, Everything was perfect except that the cold tub was empty and the hot tub wouldn't go above 91 degrees. it all ended up okay, bc they gave us a late check out to compensate, but still a bit of a bummer. besides that everythig was as described..

Reviewer Comments:

The home was clean and beautiful with wonderful views. We enjoyed the jacuzzi immensely and the kids climbed all over the boulders. The towels were soft and abundant and the kitchen was fully stocked. A couple of items could be addressed for future renters: 1) The sewer smell in the master bedroom and outside was pretty awful. Perhaps the septic tank cannot accommodate the stated number of 10 people after all? We had 9 in the big house. 2) The lighting along the stairs up to the Jacuzzi is inadequate. An accident is waiting to happen and you have a liability issue. Several lights were broken. 3) The TVs are outdated. And the dishwasher is old, the door is broken, and it's hard to turn on. 4) The front screen door does not close properly.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to provide open, helpful feedback which can only improve the property for subsequent guests. Please also know we appreciated the tone of your message which is more positive and non-confrontational. Your review of our comments would be most appreciated; Sewage smell- We are not disputing your feedback but please know the septic system was emptied and inspected just prior to your arrival. It is possible that there was some spill or mis-management of the service itself and we have requested for the pumping company to revisit the property for inspection Outdoor lighting inadequate-There is a motion detector light outside the master bedroom which is activated by motion alongside that walkway. There is switch for this light in the master bedroom. We apologize of this was not pointed out or was not working. Outdated TV's- The Vizio's are internet ,working ,and last year model. The Philips in approx 3 years old but the 60" Samsung is DLP so old tech plus the upstairs bedroom 32 " is for gaming only so yes older tech . Owner plans to update Samsung after the holiday rush. Screen Closure- Assume this is the kitchen door and if on tracks works just fine per our investigation Should you decide to plan another mtn trip with your family/friends we would love for you to be willing to stay again with us while we offer you a discount for your stay. Thank You & Regards

Reviewer Comments:

I was a first hesitant to reserve the home after reading the previous review. However after speaking with the staff at New Spirit they were very reassuring and answered any all of my questions. They immediately let me know that the cold tub in the listing was being refinished (which makes sense as it is winter time and I am not sure who would want to get in 45 degree water). Once we arrived to the home the house was not up to my cleaning standards (I am very picky I guess you can say Im a bit OCD. So do not take this as the home was dirty as it was cleaner than most vacation homes I have stayed in), but I did express my concern to New Spirit and within minutes they sent over members of their housekeeping staff. Monica & New Spirit Staff were very helpful and could tell you anything and everything about the home in detail, they also gave us some literature to read during out stay (brochure for their company, map of Idyllwild, and a directory for Idyllwild- this did help very much) I would definitely recommend this property to family and friend. Me and my husband have already planned our next visit to "The Dome" Thanks Again New Spirit Vacation Homes!!

Reviewer Comments:

The location and view was perfect, but the property itself was not in a good condition. The cold tub was broken and when we called the management the respond was " It is cold you won't use it anyway". Bedrooms were dirty, we used our sheets to cover the beds. Overall $1300 was too much money for two night stay in this property.
