Guestbook comments from the manager

Destination Big Bear was a great way way to book a cabin up in Big Bear. They were helpful in regards to helping us find the right cabin that would fit our needs with little kids.

We stayed for two nights. The cabin was beautiful! It was large enough to host 5 families. We spent a majority of our time in the cabin playing games and Pool, which was great. We especially love the outdoor fire pit.

One complaint would be the centralized heating system. The bedroom in the lower level of the house was freezing and those that slept in the 3rd floor were

too warm at night. Also, certain basic items we missing in the home. For example, coffee filters and salt and pepper but that was fine

All in all, we had a fabulous stay and can't wait to book next year!

Disappointing.

  • 1 of 5

The overall condition of this rental was poor. It needs alot of TLC. Kitchen supplies were inadequate and what was there was in disgusting shape. One dish cloth and two dish towels, went to store and bought our own. Had to call for service on the stove the first night, there was to gas to it. They fixed the oven but every time we needed to use the stove top we had to light with a lighter. TV's downstairs didn't work, didn"t come on with endless attempts. Spent first 2 hours cleaning up the back deck and driveway so as not to track in dirt, just a mess. Trash outside. Cleaning service needs to be replaced. This was an annual family gathering, won't be using the rental company again. I was surprised this was a VRBO property. I have used them before with better results.

Great size for a large family!

  • 4 of 5

Positives:

-Huge! We had enough rooms for 7 families

-nice size kitchen

-great outdoor area with fire pit and jacuzzi

-nice game space

-beautiful neighborhood

- plenty of parking

-lots of activities near by

Negatives (mostly cleanliness of the place-who wants to go on vacation and have to clean when they arrive?!?)

- house was pretty dirty : many dead flies in the window sill in the formal dining area

-spider web everywhere even on the walls

-cabinets in kitchen had trash and -dropping

-The oven was so disgusting and dirty! You can tell it's never been cleaned! We cooked in it in the first night and gave up after that since it filled the house with smoke with burning off what ever was left behind

-a lot of the dishware was dirty

-no dish towels or pot holders provided! We had to go buy our own (we left them behind for the next family)

-not enough wash cloths provided for each family member

-BBQ had very little propane and was horribly dirty. We had to scrub it down.

So overall great at accomadating large families and in a great location. Terribly unkept and required a lot of personal cleaning especially since we had two babies, one crawling around.

We enjoyed the time in your home. The space allowed us to bring children and grandchildren for 2 families. The number of rooms was perfect, but a few more bathrooms are needed. The size of the kitchen was great but the dishwasher is falling apart (inside). It is very old as were many items in the kitchen. The coffee maker and the blender didn't work but the rental company brought new ones fairly quickly. While the place looked clean on the surface, it needed to be ALOT cleaner. Several bathroom sinks were dirty and had to be washed out before use. The kitchen floor felt sticky. There was very little toilet paper and no tissues. The kitchen only had 1 roll of paper towels. With 14 people those items go quickly. The stove had a problem with one of the knobs and when turning off a burner it did not turn the gas off. We were ready to call the rental company when we realized the knob was broken and was able to get the gas off. This could have been a MAJOR issue. Couldn't that burner again. Game room was nice. Air hockey didn't work but the ping pong table was great. We also had enough room to add the "party" pong table we brought.

Fantastic, clean, comfortable home + super close to the lifts

My group had a great stay. The house was large and accommodating, extremely clean when we arrived, and had every sort of entertainment you could think of. We'll definitely be booking again.

Nice Home with Awesome Amenities

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our Thanksgiving break here immensely! The game room is an awesome amenity and kept our entire family busy when we weren't cooking and eating. Only downside was the price increasing significantly (2 or 3 times the regular rate) for the holiday and it is a challenge to keep mobility challenged family members safe amidst all the stairs.

My family and I rented this property for my daughters graduation party. What a wonderful time we had room and space for the entire family. We enjoyed our stay and had a great experience working with Destination Big Bear great customer service. If there was anything we needed they were there to help us. I will use this company over and over again.
