About Kenny & Izumi

Kenny and Izumi live on the Los Angeles Westside and enjoy 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.

Kenny & Izumi purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Kenny & Izumi chose Central Coast California

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.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the fact that our cell phones don’t work. Now PMC has a Verizon Cell Tower. 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.

Peaceful and immaculant

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two daughters stayed at this property for two lovely nights. When we arrived Kenny and Izumi were just leaving after giving the place a thorough cleaning. My daughter and I have allergies to pet dander and our hosts were empathetic to this and made sure the house was spotless. We had no problems with our allergies during our stay. The house is full of light, the beds are super comfy and the hot tub was wonderful. You want for nothing as the house is fully stocked with anything you forgot or needed. The trail to town is really sweet and we enjoyed the mexican restaurant in town on our way out.

Thank you Kenny and Izumi for the relaxing stay in your lovely hideaway. We will be back!

Wonderful Cabin

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin is lovely and the jacuzzi made the stay even more special. We appreciated that it was fully furnished, especially the kitchen. We will be going back for sure.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house for a family getaway. The home is beautiful and had everything we needed. Our boys (2 & 5 yrs old) loved playing in the snow right next to the house. The home also had lots of fun family activities to entertain us like the wii, board games, cards, and lots of dvds. Our family would definitely stay here again.

Amazing! Charming! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I worked with Izumi, the owner of the cottage, and she was so hospitable and easy to work with in regards to renting the cabin. EVERYTHING is charming, cozy, and perfect for a get-away. I hope to use the location every year to retreat away from work and responsibility. The spa is also a nice touch for relaxing, and the fire place cozy. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Worth the money, and trustworthy owners who work with you to ensure your time is restful.

A weekend with the grandkids

  • 5 of 5

There is a saying, you get what you pay for. This cabin is a little more expensive than others of the same size in the PMC. But, it is worth every penny. It is the cleanest I have ever rented. The beds are comfortable. The TV is beautiful. The kitchen and utensils are first class. And, the spa is great. It is like being in some ones principal residence, not a weekend rental cabin.

Peaceful & magestic

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin! We found it well appointed, clean, comfortable and the hot tub under the stars was the highlight! It is a great location to catch up on your rest and enjoy nature. The owners were taught forward and we appreciated how easy they were to work with and especially appreciated the fact that they didn't have hidden fees. The cabin was a good value. We will be back!! Thank you!!
