About Heidi

Heidi purchased this house in 2003

Why Heidi chose Central Coast California

Great for large groups from retreats to family reunions. Quiet neighborhood, short walk to town center's shops and restaurants, park, church, and club house (golf/tennis/swimming pool). House is handicapped accessible; ramp available upon request.

What makes this house unique

Upgraded large kitchen open to dining and living room + deck (all entertaining in one great room), three fireplaces, flat back yard for games, beautiful sunsets from large rear deck. Short walking distance to all town amenities and hiking trail.

It was okay.

  • 2 of 5

We chose Heidi's retreat for our Youth Camp because of how spacious it was. Lots of room and space to accommodate up to 25 people. We arrived Friday afternoon, there was 15 of us. As we were assigned bedrooms, we found dead bugs on all of the beds on the loft. When we hit the bed, more dust and bugs seemed to have come from the sheets. We decided not to use this loft area at all. We were able to fit everyone else in the other rooms. Two of my youth members woke up that night with several bug bites. The washer and dryer was not made available to us so I wasn't able to wash any of the sheets beforehand. The next day, I had to throw away $50 worth of food because we found small roaches crawling all over our food on the counter. We did not leave the house or anything, we were sitting and eating and when some went back for seconds, we found the roaches were crawling everywhere. They seemed to have come from the dishwasher which we didn't even use. I removed all of the rugs that was inside the house to the balcony because of how extremely dusty and dirty they were. The rug under the dining table we had to fold in half because whenever someone would step on it, a layer of dust would just come off of it. The space is great but we didn't feel comfortable because of the many bugs and how dusty the house was. We still enjoyed our stay but the bugs and dust just really didn't make it comfortable for anyone. There's also not enough fans if you're going to be staying here in the summer. Heidi was accommodating and tried to help us when we could. Please be aware that unless you have Verizon or AT&T there will be no reception for your phones.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and very spacious. We took our youth group their for a weekend retreat and everything we needed was readily available. The property is well cared for and the cabin is very inviting. There is a community pool near by, trails to hike, a grocery store and restaurants withing walking distance. The price was very reasonable and the owner very accommodating and helpful. This cabin would be great for a family reunion.

Great Youth Retreat Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved having our youth leadership retreat at Heidi's Retreat - we come here every year it's available! Great location and tons of space. We have anywhere from 16-20 depending on the year, and always have enough room for people to have beds. It's comfortable and provides for a cozy way to bond as a team!

Large but cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our needs. We also have a place in Pine Mountain Club and we were hosting 35 people for my Mother in Law's 90th birthday celebration. Our place can sleep 13 so Heidi's was a perfect overflow cabin! All 22 members of our family that stayed there were very comfortable and no one had to sleep on the floor! Plenty of bathrooms so no lines in the morning!

The property is clean and well maintained and the rental experience with VRBO and Heidi was very good. Heidi communicated often with us and answered my questions in a very timely manner.

You can be sure we will rent this place again for another family reunion!

Thank you Heidi for always answering my numerous emails and the property manager taking the time to show us the property before we decide to rent. Heidi's Retreat was able to accommodate my church group of 25 for Memorial Weekend. We really enjoyed the house and the peacefulness at Pine Mountain Club. Everything was as described and our guest had a wonderful time there. The grocery store and clubhouse are all within walking distance and our group had a fun time hiking to the nearby trails. Driveway fitted 8 cars comfortably and all 25 of us had something to sleep on. Would definitely consider coming back for our next retreat.

We hosted our wedding rehearsal dinner here and it was perfect! There's lots of space for guests to sit down and enjoy their meal - both inside and outside. It's wonderfully suited for large groups! We were able to house 23 guests very comfortably. There's lots of rooms/beds, restrooms, lots of space and the outdoor space was perfect for the kids to run around. Please note, the back yard neighbors do have dogs but it is nicely fenced and the dogs kept away. The kitchen was great and the counter-top had lots of space for a buffet-style display. Note, the driveway can take a good 7 vehicles comfortably. 8 if you get creative! The owner truly made our experience here at this cabin, Pine Mountain and our entire wedding weekend an enjoyable one!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lisa. I'm glad your stay and rehearsal dinner at our house was enjoyable. It is wonderful that our club house organizes weddings on the golf course. There wouldn't be room in any other place in Pine Mountain for such large groups.
