*PRIVACY: The APT is separate-no sharing of space, privacy barriers and few neighbors-as we live on a private road with only a couple in full time residence.
You also get a PRIVATE PATIO to sit, lounge, eat, read, drink and be merry. You have full lake views. (see pics) We just added a new Drinking Bar and a BBQ to the private patio.
*QUIET & GREAT LOCATION: We are on a private road and not near any major highways- so we are quiet-most of the time. Yet, super close to the LAKE (less than 1/2 mi as crow flies n 1.3 mile hike to lake) Blue Jay (3 miles) & Lake Arrowhead Village, (5miles) and SkyPark@Santa'sVillage (7miles). You can even HIKE in the Forest (100yds away) Our Guests have said that it's super quiet and far less noise than any Hotel. Those that have stayed on the Lake or in the Village have said they prefer it here. We also have Sound Proofing in the APT and in the rest of the house, which goes a long way to reduce noise. Solid core wood doors are throughout the APT.
*FREE HI SPEED WIFI: you can even stream your Netflix Movies if you are a member (previous Guests have been happy about this)
*PREMIUM MOVIE CHANNELS: If you want to just relax and watch TV, well, we have ALL the Premium Movie Channels. HBO, CINEMAX, STARZ, SHOWTIME & TMC premium movie channels, DVD player & MP3, CD & iPod /IPhone Player-recharger. We also have a DVR filled with premium movies provided in the APT.
*GREAT TEMP CONTROL: Central Heating PLUS cute Fireplace/Heaters in the Bedroom and Dining Room to stay extra toasty or just to enjoy the flames year round. In the summer that level stays very cool and never needs AC. People rave about those cute Fireplaces and always want to know where we got them.
*FINE DINING for 4: inside or Outside (depending upon weather). Inside a pretty glass round table or the bar or the large game table in the Living room.
OUTSIDE there is a large dining table and chairs. Also, Teak Lounge chairs and tables for snacks, reading, cocktails or laptops. (see pics) We just got a BBQ (bring Charcoal and lighter fluid) and we just built a Drinking bar for the private patio. See pics on the Fb page called, Stardust Chalet.
*PET FRIENDLY-we welcome responsible Pet Owners. We love our PETS and want other responsible Pet Owners to be able to bring their Pets on vacation. We also have dogs who can play with your dog. We have even been known to Pet sit. We don't care about the Size of your dog. We have had tiny dogs to Mastiff's and Great Danes. We love DOGS.
*PARKING--we have parking on our property for 3 cars to be shared with our other listing. No covered parking.
*FAIRY/ANGEL FOUNTAIN & FLOWERS: 3 fountains run year round (weather permitting) to provide a relaxing and tranquil environment. Pretty flowers are all around the grounds in the Spring, Summer & Fall.
*SUN BATHING or STARGAZING: Unusual for the mountains with lake views but we made a LEVEL lower Yard with full lake views: Do you like stargazing or to get a little sun? Well, there is a level yard area where you can stargaze at night or bring the beach chairs (in small closet) down during the day to take in some Sun rays.
*FIRE PIT--use of our fire pit for trusted guests. (We live in a high risk Fire Area so this is only allowed under certain conditions on the mountains)
*UPGRADES: The property and APT are constantly being upgraded. So, it can improve from one week to the next. Next year we hope to be providing a Gas Fire Pit to our Guest and enlarging the private patio and screening it in for a LOT of extra space to lounge and sleep and relax. Many MORE features to come.
*SAUNA: We offer the use of our Wet/Dry Outdoor Finnish Sauna to repeat/trusted Guest. Very relaxing.
We just opened (to the public) in late May 2013 and have been booked most of the time. GUESTS seem to repeat that the place is 'Magical' and that it has a great energy in and out. First, they Love the Lake Views and spend a lot of time on the private patio or inside gazing outside. Then they fall in love with the inside of the APT. which is often described as 'Romantic' and Beautiful with many special details and touches.' Guests are thrilled at the close proximity to the Lake & Village-but far enough away have quiet and solitude. They also exclaim delight with the overall decor and the luxurious bathroom and kitchen. We have even received squeals of delight--which were much appreciated! It's what we strive for!
LAKE ARROWHEAD is located about 90 minutes from Beaches, Desert and downtown Los Angeles or Orange County. It's nearest the Ontario Airport.. Close enough for a quick getaway--far enough away to get away from it all. AREA: Located at 5500 feet above Sea Level. This house is about 1/2 mile as the crow flies to the LAKE. It's 5 miles from Lake Arrowhead Village. 3 miles to Blue Jay & about 15 miles to Snow Valley Snow Ski Resort. 20 mins from Crestline-Lake Gregory.

We’re originally from Orange County and have lived in a few Beach homes, among other places. We’ve both traveled in our lives n my husband used to be an Olympic (2 Silver Medals) and Pro-Athlete Water Polo player so he has been all over the world-many times. We lived in Italy, while he played professionally. We LOVE to experience different people, cultures and foods.
We also love nature,design,garden & DIY projects and ANIMALS. We love Animals n have rescued n fostered for the local rescues. We love to travel with our Pets but it's not always easy to do. Some Pet Owners give a bad rap to the rest of us who are super responsible.
We used to rent out this house through a Real Estate Agency back in 2001--before construction. The house got trashed n the Agency was only interested in their commissions. So, now, we have a say as to who comes to our home.
We LOVE our Guests. We work very hard on their behalf to provide a tranquil place they can relax, unwind and get in touch w/ nature. We like privacy, so we give it to our Guests-but we are here in case anyone needs us.
In 2002, we moved here full time and and added on and started re-doing the rest of this now almost 5000 sq. ft. home. We are always working on improvements n are always doing maintenance. We are on the sunny, windy side of the lake. The elements are brutal to paint. We should be professional paint testers.
We truly LOVE living here. It's like being on vacation n every day we give THANKS for this beauty n this view of the mountains n lake. We love all of the visits we get from the forest critters. We have many fun stories of encounters.
So, all of those things led us to offer our Apartment & Suite on Airbnb & Vrbo and our page: 'Stardust Chalet' on Facebook. We are excited for others to come and enjoy this place. We want you to bring your PET n come and RELAX, Meditate n unwind and commune with nature and yourself. (rainbow friendly)
We came to the local mountains as children and vacationed here with our family as children and adults. My family fell in love with this house, view and property in the early 90's and we have been improving it ever since.
It's close to the lake but far enough for privacy and quiet.
Every day we look at that view and are so grateful that we get to look at that view every day.
Lake Arrowhead's benefits: You can enjoy nature and a calm and quiet life and still be only 90 mins (without traffic) from Los Angeles or Orange County or anywhere one needs to be for business.
This home: This house backs up near the National Forest and has some space between us and neighbors. Not a lot of full time neighbors live on our private road so it's usually VERY quiet. We also have a breathtaking Panoramic views of the lake. We have amazing sunsets and sunrises and you can hear the birds, owls and critters throughout--instead of the hustle of the Village and cars. It's close to the lake (1/2 mile as the crow flies) but far back enough to minimize the lake and village noises and traffic. It's an ideal place to unwind while still being close enough to everything you want to do.
It was clear - even prior to being confirmed for the rental - that the owners took the time to ensure that their place was a good match for us. Every detail of the property, our trip getting there and our stay was meticulously provided to us. It was no surprise then that the property itself was as advertised - fully accommodating our need for a warm and inviting place to enjoy the beauty of Lake Arrowhead. We've stayed in many places and almost never submit reviews - the way I see it is that we pay good money and expect to get a nice place and be treated well in return - but these hosts when extra mileS making this place and our stay a very special experience so we would be remiss not to share our gratitude.
A little bit of heaven with a lake view. Unique and charming accommodations. A great deal of care went into making this property stand out. Seems as though everything was included, so we longed for nothing while we were there. It was so delightful that we only left the property twice to go into town. Terrific entertainment center with a huge array of movie CD's. Our hosts checked on us frequently to make sure everything went smoothly.
We would not return to Lake Arrowhead without staying here. Gene and Dick Lueck, Palm Desert, CA June 216
My wife and I wanted to get away for the weekend and bring our dog along for the ride. The owners, being animal lovers, were very responsive and helpful, providing pet friendly places and tips that only a true local can know. The apartment is well organized and comfortably, with attention to detail that causes a moment for pause to say, "wow... that's pretty cool" or "ahhhh.... so thoughtful!"
We appreciate the open communication that the owners foster in getting to know us, which in turn allowed us to feel more comfortable staying there. We will definitely be back again!!!! Thanks!!!!
My husband and I stayed here over the New Years Holiday, it was fantastic. The view of the lake is amazing! The location is also a plus because you are in equal distance between Lake Arrowhead Village and the small community of Blue Jay. If you need to shop or get food without the more crowded Village, Blue Jay is a great option. Finally the location is near hiking trails and the unit comes with the use of beach passes.
The rental itself is very cozy and well kept. It has a full kitchen, nice living room area with a lake view, and a fantastic bedroom/ bathroom. It also has a pull out couch, that we didn't use but could be used if you had kids. It was chilly when we were there, but the place is kept nice and warm. There is an area to sit outside to watch the sunrise, and lake view it looked nice, but was too cold for us to brave it. Plus you can see the lake from the nice warm couch.
Finally the owners, Think and Peter, were extremely helpful. They leave plenty of information for ideas of things to do, places to eat, and other activities available in the area if you are not familiar with Lake Arrowhead.
We had a nice relaxing, peaceful time here.
The combination of amazing view, peaceful location, immaculately clean, stylish, upgraded interior and reasonable price really can't be beat in Lake Arrowhead. Peter and Tink were very attentive and helpful. Will definitely be back!
This VRBO was actually much more like staying as a welcomed guest in a lovely mountain home than just a rented accomodation. We were in the Stardust Chalet (apartment) part of the property. The owners went above and beyond in providing many thoughtful touches and information for us to make the most of our stay. Due to weather concerns, (snow in May previous week and predicted incoming huge storm) they worked with us on making sure we go there in a safe timeframe, even re-checking their local microclimate for ice warnings during our check-in. . By the same token, even if you'd stayed at someone's home that you didn't know too well (like visiting relatives you rarely see out of town), you would still show enjoyment and respect for your host's hospitality and efforts by cleaning up after yourself and being thoughtful as though it were your own home. This is the basis of these owners philosophy of providing GREAT options and information and being there for guest needs but at the same time, we felt like we were in the most wonderful private lake view room with a porch, tables, lounge chairs, and more; home-like touches that really were the best of both worlds----comfort of a relaxing home-y environment with the access to landlord support if we needed anything.
SO much better than a typical commercial property. I have a difficult time in a typical heavily used resort/type/vacation properties especially with old dust, allergens, damp/moldy environs that develop from cabins in the woods etc. This was SO much better: clean, great amenities, comfortable bed, wonderful kitchen, nearby to both town and area hiking and a fun, happy experience in every way.
MANY THANKS Tink and Peter we would love to visit again.
