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 Idyllwild-Pine Cove

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.

A cozy and clean, not naughty at all!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 including a Maltese had a great time at Naughty Pines. This cabin is one of the cleanest and quietest cabins we've been to and the owner, Paul is a nice host as well. It's about 2.5 miles away from the village but there is a market/gas station close by so no problem there. We also loved the views from the deck and surrounding areas. If there is one thing to improve, I wish we could leave the trash and recycles behind instead of taking it was a lot of hassle. I've never had to take my trash home with other cabins but they do charge little more cleaning or service fee than Paul. There is no public dumpster available in the area so make sure you reserve some trunk space.

A gem... wish it were mine!

  • 5 of 5

Great mini-vacation at this tastefully decorated and perfectly situated cabin! Relatively secluded with ample space, all amenities thought of, an abundant supply of firewood, lovely deck to enjoy the crazy birds from, watch the sunset, sip wine... what more could one want? Oh yeah. You're still close to town, hiking trails, etc... Perfect gem.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you were able to enjoy a mini-vacation at Naughty Pines! We like to keep the cabin well-stocked, so there is no excuse to leave, and only time to enjoy the views of the sunsets, pine trees and birds. Hope to see you back soon!

Quiet, beautiful & affordable!

  • 4 of 5

Really loved this place!!!

Wanted a quiet, secluded, romantic weekend getaway for 2 and that is exactly what we got!

It looks almost just like the pics but nicer. Everything is up-to-date and functional. Everything you need for your visit is supplied. Towels, pots, utensils, paper Towels, soap, shampoo, wood for the fireplace, Bluetooth sound system that can be heard through the entire place including the deck, tv had Netflix & Hulu...just bring food!

The back deck is very secluded and a nice view no matter what time of day. There is only 1 neighbor and they are on the side but not the side with the deck. You barely notice there are any others ppl or cabins around. Easy to get to, only 1 parking space so if your bringing 2 cars be mindful of that. Both beds were super comfy with nice comforters & pillows. The Welcome book tells you everything you need.

The only thing we needded to do was fill the tank for the grill outside. Easy to do as there is gas station/convenience store less than a mile away. This wasn't in the book I'm guessing it was a simple oversite that the tank was empty.

Hiking and nice views are a short distance away.

You won't be disappointed. This was our 1st VBRO stay and it was a great experience!

Thank you Paul for being so accommodating & sharing your lovely cabin!

Owner's Response: So glad you have a great time relaxing in the cabin! I'm glad you took a chance on a VRBO stay and had a good experience! We also use the cabin as our city getaway, so we like to make sure it is well stocked, clean, and ready for relaxation. We enjoy the deck and great sunset views as well! We hope to see you back again soon!

Wonderful Experience in the Forest

  • 5 of 5

We found what we were looking for in this immaculate cabin. Every one of the reviews posted rings true and still it exceeded our expectations. Naughty Pines is very clean, private, every convenience included, amazing views, serenity, well appointed, and thoughtful/responsive owners. We didn't want to leave and we are already planning our return in spring and summer. If you live in San Diego ... Idy is far nicer than Julian. Go. Stay at Naughty Pines. Thank you, Paul!

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic few days at Naughty Pines. The home was immaculate, the layout was perfect. Everything we needed to have a great getaway from the city is here. We didn't get a chance to hike around much because Idyllwild got much-needed rain, but that added to the charm. We will definitely return.
