About Paul Hellinga

Denise and I have been richly blessed to own this property and look forward to many years of sharing this amazing home with family, friends, and clients. For many years we have been boating with our family at Lake Mead, and now with 7 grandchildren, we found that Big Bear fits our vacation needs wonderfully, with all the amenities we want, close proximity to our home, and year round seasonal activities. We hope to glorify God for all he has blessed us with, through sharing this home with our family, friends, and others.

Paul Hellinga purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Paul Hellinga chose Big Bear Lake

This property is the place we have often dreamed of, an exceptional and beautiful home, with amazing lake views, easy lake access with boat docks, level entry for easy access during wintry snow months, large bedrooms with plenty of room for kids. We hope this will be in our family now for generations to come, where our kids, and grand kids will make wonderful memories, celebrating all the seasons of the year, and seasons of life.

What makes this chalet unique

There is almost nothing that you can't do in Big Bear. From boating and water sports in the summer, to cozy retreats in the fall, snowball fights in the winter, not to mention skiing and all winter sports, to the smells and joys of spring time, this home has it all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As owners of the property, we stayed for several days this past week ourselves. We just wanted to shout out a big THANK YOU! to all our guests this past summer. With one exception, everyone took great care with the property, treating this really special place as if it were their own. This is everything we hoped for when we ventured out to share "Lakeside Memories"! Here's to hoping we can accommodate our annual clients again next summer!

Thanks again!

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family. We had 5 children from 3-9 and they loved being able to share the bedroom with bunk beds that could sleep 8. The other 3 bedrooms were equally spacious --- 2 with queen beds and the master with a king bed. The weather was wonderful this year over Thanksgiving and we spend a lot of time on the large patio that wraps around the rear of the home with lots of chairs, a large table that sat 10 and the hot tub. Everyone loved the hot tub. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed to make a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. Near the front door there is a closet full of games and puzzles. The "great room" is warm and inviting and can easily seat 15 people.

Mr.Hellinga, the owner of the property , was always available for questions and to help with any problems that might arise.

I would definitely rent the house again for a family vacation.

The house itself is very large, needs some maintenance, but was very comfortable for our large group. My only beef is the misrepresentation of access to the lake. I only booked this place under the assumption that we could fish from the dock. Much to the dismay of everyone, the lake has receded to such an extent that you can literally walk off the dock and cross the lake, it's not even muddy it's so dry.

Big Bear Family Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

We took our oldest daughter to celebrate her birthday. The whole family was so excited when we got to this fantastic home with lots of room, pool table, jacuzzi and an amazing view. Sitting on the deck and enjoying the view or going in the jacuzzi was certainly a highlight. It was nice being close to the marina to rent kayaks, paddleboards and a wakeboarding boat.

We highly recommend for groups or families. Super fun stay here!

Beautiful home. Spacious with great amenities.

  • 4 of 5

We spent the week with our three grown children and their families and had plenty of room. Lots of open space including a fabulous deck with a view of the lake marina and mountains.

The full Big Bear experience, right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very easy to work with, and the process of checking in was seamless. The property is massive, and the house is a little weathered, but for the price, it's pretty awesome. Hot tub was absolutely amazing and very clean, and the beds were pretty comfortable. The lake was just high enough to get their dock afloat – and we were able to fish right from it. Would definitely stay here again.

Car: recommended

On this site Roy Rogers, famous cowboy, movie star, built a cabin for himself when he owned the Pleasure Point Marina. This house still has one of the original walls from that cabin built by Roy Rogers! Even more, the claw bathtub in the upstairs bathroom was the tub owned and used in that cabin built by Roy Rogers! Just a little history behind one of the finest lake front homes on Big Bear Lake...
