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

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!

July 4th week stay at Condor Cove

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week stay at Condor Cove. Our family consisted of 8 adults & 6 kids(18, 17, 16 15, 13, & 4). The house was perfect for our group! The pool table & rec room on first floor was a big hit with the teens. The adults tended to gather either on the balcony or upstairs living room. We ALL spent a lot of time at the AWESOME dining table that we could all sit at whether it was for eating or playing card games or other group games. The bedrooms were comfortable, the 3 bathrooms were well-equipped. After reading a review saying that the kitchen was not well-equipped for a large group, I brought some of my cooking necessities. After taking inventory in the kitchen and finding enough of everything to cook for an army, I repacked all of my stuff. True, the décor and some equipment were dated, but we feel that just added to the charm of being at Big Bear. In dealing with Jim, the owner, we found him to be the nicest, most patient, and most accommodating owner we've ever dealt with when we've rented through VRBO. Every one of us decided that we would definitely like to return to Condor Cove again. From locals, we heard that the best place to watch the fireworks was at the baseball field at Meadow Park, a short walk from the house. It was nice not having to fight traffic coming or going to the event. There was plenty of room to find spots for our blankets & chairs and we didn"t even get there until just before sunset. The location is excellent. We were close to the lake, shopping, & all that Big Bear has to offer for summer recreation. The hot tub and BBQ were used frequently (nice perks).

Perfect set up!

  • 4 of 5

We had 5 couples and this place worked out perfect. It is definitely a little out dated but it has that older cabin feel that you expect when going to the snow. It had everything that you would want and it all worked great. Beds could be updated but mine was comfy enough. It would have been nice if a snow removal company cleared the driveway and parking area prior to arrival so I didn't have to spend 2 hours on it. But all in all, Great location and neighborhood. Thought $250 was a little much for early check in. At 4pm the day is already gone. Don't know if that's a VBRO or owner policy. But that's my 2 cents. I would stay here again in the future. Thank you Jim.

Second stay as great as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We liked this cabin so much we came back for a second time. We have 9 adults, 2 teens, and 2 preteens and this cabin accommodates all of us very nicely. The kids have the lower level to themselves to watch TV, play video games or pool etc. The upper level hosts a large kitchen with plenty of room for food prep and is well stocked. The long dining table fits all of us and we loved that. As many have stated, the cabin has a retro vibe and reminds me of when I was a kid. It is well maintained and the owner is very responsive to any of your needs. Overall, it is warm and cozy and central to all of the Big Bear amenities. Hoping we can come back again.

The cabin was really clean and I have so much fun with my family there. There was enough space for everyone and a lot of activities to keep us entretain. It was snowing so that make the place look really beautiful. Would definitely stay again.
