About Heidi

This house was our family home for 4 years. We had very enjoyable times here and space was never a problem for entertaining many guests.

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.

Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to this area and if you have never been it is worth going. The town is beautiful and charming. There is lots to do. You can also go to the club like we did and swim. The pool is large and has great views surrounding it. We spent a lot of time at the house as well because there was a lot of room for activities and crafts for the kids. . The house is bigger than what it looks like in the pictures. I loved the kitchen. It too is bigger than what it looked like and it is fully equipped. We had a large group, but it did feel like it because there was so much room. The house was very clean and very well maintained. There are plenty of beds and bathrooms!!! The loft was perfect for the kids, and the downstairs apt was a bonus. It would be ideal for elderly people or teenagers. We spent a lot of time on the balcony just amazed by the views of the area. It even had an electric awning, to provide shade. There is free drop off for garbage very close so that was also very convenient because we had a large group. Heidi was very helpful and very nice. This place was ideal and close to everything. So glad we found it. We can't wait to go back. Thank you Heidi!!!!

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.

Owner's Response: This review is completely out of line with all our other 45 reviews! We have had nothing but 5 stars lately and a few 4 stars in the past. This was a group of very young girls from the inner city who apparently should have never chosen a retreat in the national forest. Our next guests (who checked-in the day the girls left) were a well known Hollywood actor and his 5 crew members shooting a show in the area. They had absolutely no issues with anything and loved the house, and my fear was that they are used to red carpets and luxury. They said they'd come back when/if they are needed again for a shoot. I had house keeping check the loft that was not even used by this group of 6. There were a few dead flies but that happens to everyone if you keep doors open. He banged on the beds and saw no dust appear. We don't make beds ahead of time and the sheets are in a neat pile on beds or closets so they can't get dusty like she claims. Mosquitoes bite my son too at night here in Palos Verdes where we live but no-one else. Use repellent if you are one of those people! We have screens on every opening in the house and they still get in from when people leave the screen door open for a few minutes. She can't blame us on 2 of her kids getting bites! All our rugs and floor are vacuumed between each group, and we have rentals back to back all summer so they couldn't have been dusty unless this group left the doors open and let the wind blow the outside dust in. The landscaping is mulch and dirt in the area and it's super dry and often gusty. The large rug under the dining table she complains about was machine washed a week earlier and vacuumed after the only group that had stayed in the house since. There are 9 fans to serve the 6 rooms on the main level. It seems sufficient to me. The downstairs stays cool at all times and does not need fans. I have seen few of the tiny bugs too on the kitchen counter when I left food out. They are smaller than ants so I'm not sure if they are roaches. We do spray and leave traps to prevent them. I called the local exterminator today to come investigate what they are and get rid of them for good. I thought we had killed them already. This guest didn't notify me about any of these problems she listed here which is strange; even she texted me about the pool & guest cards and our house manager brought her more guest cards the first day. This explains the dust and bugs the following days were due to open doors or their dirty shoes.

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.
