About Michael Veksler

Los Angeles born and raised. My family and I have been going to Lake Arrowhead for over 20 years.

Michael Veksler purchased this house in 2008

Why Michael Veksler chose Lake Arrowhead

As a child, my parents brought me to Lake Arrowhead for summer vacations. This place has a unique feature about it that draws good common people together to enjoy the beauty of this wonderful place. When we found this home and all of the wonderful amenities it had, we couldn't believe it was ours to own. I think from seeing the pictures you can tell that we pay close attention to making it a comfortable place for people to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

This 4,774 sq. ft. home comes with 5 separate bedrooms and three of the five having their own full bathrooms. The loft is huge, allowing children to enjoy climbing a tree house like ladder to their secret den which has 3 beds. The home has a garage for one car and the driveway can fit an additional 4 cars. The large indoor jacuzzi and sauna are my favorite amenities of the house. After a long work week, going up to the 'lake house' with the family to unwind in the spa room, melts all your worries away. The road is public which is maintained, plowed and won't spoil your vacation when it snows.

Loving the upgrades

  • 5 of 5

I first stayed here in May of 2017. Myself and my group loved it. It was spacious, up to date, and the indoor massive jacuzzi is amazing. This time around was better. The upgrades like the fridge and Grill were welcome additions. There is nothing more to say. Michael. Amazing place. And thanks for the stay. Will book again. (please refer to my previous review for more details)

Great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place is a great place for a big family vacation. We were 4 families, 12 adults and we stayed there for 3 nights. We had trouble setting up the smart TV's and the jaccuzi in the main bathroom was not working but those were not big deal for us. The pool was awesome. Very nice and quiet neighborhood. I enjoyed walking up and down the hills. Just breath taking. We were able to park 4 cars inside the property. We loved the house in general. We will defenitely rent it again.

Spacious, and hassle free

  • 4 of 5

This place was pretty spacious with a lot of amenities. All communication made us welcome.

A few things need work - refrig fuse got tripped once and it took some time to find the fuse boxes. One of the bathroom light went off and on. Couldn't quite figure out why, and how it got turned on again. Wine cooler in the kitchen smelled bad for some reason and we had to leave it turned off.

not bad but needs work

  • 3 of 5

This property could be a good rental for ski season but during the hot summer, without air conditioning, it was lacking. Just a lot of little problems like a rusty barbque, a toilet not working properly, one faucet not working, one coffee pot not working, bad living room lamps. It would have been nicer to have some of the leaves and tree limbs swept and the furniture on the nice deck cleaned. The jacuzzi was great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the concerns that has been brought to my attention. Lake Arrowhead is cold most of the year accept for two months. I will be looking into adding an AC unit this year. As for the rest of the items, I have replaced the BBQ with a new one, replaced the master bathroom toilet, fixed the leaking faucet, replaced the coffee maker, and updated all the light bulbs in the house. The gardener has cleaned all around the property and I have even replaced the refrigerator. I apologize for the inconvenience and have attended to all the items. Thank you

Nice, roomy and modern.

  • 4 of 5

This place rocks! Has everything you need to keep everyone entertained. We couldn't operate the spa temperature and I thought the oitside patio set (chairs) could've been cleaned, but the overall experience was terrific! Will definitely recommend this rental property.

Amazingly large size.

  • 5 of 5

This was more than enough room. And we came with the max amount. The Jacuzzi is Great. Says It fits 10 people but fit us all conformably. We did have to open the garage a little bit to help vent away some of pool smell. But 30 minutes of the garage door cracked open. And both the pool room and inside garage door open. And it cleared the air.

The place is well furnished. Flat screens. The kitchen was spacious. And we enjoyed our weekend away from it all. We wanted to visit the lake. But sudden snow/hail kept us from doing so. But we still enjoyed our stay inside this wonderful home.

First time we used a house in Arrowhead. And will definitely use this house again.

Thanks Michael for everything.
