About Paul Zapala

We live in Palm Springs and love coming up to Idyllwild. We didn't intend on buying a cabin, but when we saw this one come on the market, we couldn't resist. Perfect combination of peace and quite, views and privacy.

Paul Zapala purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Paul Zapala chose Inland Empire

This is an ideal location at the end of the street. It has great views, is very private, and isn't in a crowded area of cabins. Being the last house on the street and with a strong slope to the next lot, you don't have a house in the view's way.

What makes this cabin unique

This is the ultimate getaway for those that want to check out and just enjoy some peaceful mountain air and scenery. You relax the minute you step on the deck. Put some bird seed in the bird feeder and watch the wildlife around you.

I want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Since we left the cabin a few weeks ago, all I am thinking is to go back and stay longer this time. Everything about the place is charming: the view, the cabin, and all the little details of care in the cabin. Everything you need for a pleasant and comfortable stay is there.

The surroundings outdoors are beautiful. There are many little spots around the cabin to sit and sip on coffee and enjoy the serene forest mood.

Thank you Paul for your professionalism! It was the easiest rental and check in.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of heaven with us. My husband and I fell in love with your beautiful cabin, its location, the mountains, and your town. Everything was absolutely perfect!! We loved sitting out on the patio, taking in the scenery full of squirrels, birds and mother nature. When we finally went in, we were so pleased to find firewood, restaurant recommendations, and a list of outdoor activities. You truly thought of everything, thank you. We cant wait to return!!

Peaceful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our second stay a Naughty Pine. It is the perfect location for us to get away for an extended weekend. The community is quiet and secluded so as to ensure peaceful relaxation. The balcony is a wonderful place to sit and stare at the pine trees and the plentiful wildlife. I appreciate how the owner provide feed for the birds and squirrels. I could spend hours watching the squirrels jump from the roof to the bird feeder and back to the railing. Everything is provided to ensure a cozy and comfortable weekend away. Even the firewood is well stocked. At the end of Appleton Rd., there is access to miles of hiking and mountain biking trails with fantastic viewpoints down towards Hemet. I can't wait to go again! Thank you Paul for sharing your little gem with all of us!

Wonderful cozy cabin in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Naughty Pines Cabin. As we drove up we could see both cabins Paul and James own surrounded by lots of trees and views down to Hemet. As we walked around the grounds we found several seating areas on the property with a great hammock swinging between two large trees. We then opened the door and were very happy with what we saw. A very well appointed interior with many windows, two decks for relaxing, kitchen, dinning area and a very cozy living room with a great fireplace. Master Bedroom with bath and a half bath in the hall on the first floor. The second floor had a great bedroom and loft area as well and every window you looked from had a spectacular view. The back deck was amazing with table and chairs, two lounge chairs and small table. The BBQ was at the end of the deck ready to be fired up.

We had every meal there with lunches on the back deck. We fed the Blue Jays, Squirrels every morning and all through the day. Our dog Molly had a ball watching all the animals which included three coyote sightings. One thing to remember, always have you pet on a leash when walking around the area. We had a fire every morning and evening and the firewood was provided. We rested, played games, worked on a puzzle, took naps and just had a wonderful time.

This was a great get a way after just moving to Palm Springs the week before. We will be back again to enjoy this wonderful cozy cabin in the woods.

Thanks Guys.

Mark, Victor and Molly

Top notch getaway place! Book it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our two night stay with our two small dogs was just the perfect getaway and exactly what the doctor ordered. The cabin is clean, comfy, perfectly situated, well-appointed and has all you need except your own clothing, food, liquor, and toiletries.

Our hosts were clear and concise, check in and check out were a breeze, and we can't wait to return.

If you're looking for the perfect place to become incommunicado, you found it. And if there are many of you – – family and friends – – know that the host have another cabin next door.
