Time to escape to the mountains of San Bernardino.
3 hours out of LA or San Diego, the peaceful sanctuary of Big Bear is the mountainous recharger your batteries need.
Almost 7,000 ft above sea level in a mecca of sunshine & clear air. This is where mountain bikers glide down fire roads, skiers carve through snow & hikers dip into pure blue water after rambling through mountain meadows.
I am a wine importer and love to travel.
I rent out my vacation rentals that are located in over 120+ resort locations all over the US, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and England.
While last-minute short-stay accommodations are sometimes possible, please be smart about your expectations. Keep this helpful hints in mind:
1. Holidays and summer weekends book up months in advance.
2. If it's less than a month before any kind of holiday, concert, or event, it's likely already booked up. Accommodations in Indio and Palms Springs sell out within the HOUR of Coachella tickets going on sale, but it's the same two weekends every year, so plan ahead and you'll get what you want.
3. You can book as far as 13 months out.
I have units that can accommodate as many as eight people. Have more than eight? You can rent more that one unit! The Maximum Occupancy listed on the listing is as true as gravity and cannot be adjusted for any reason because the Fire Marshal said so. Respect the Fire Marshal's wisdom.
Almost all units have a complete kitchen. In addition to full-size appliances, you'll find plates, glasses, silverware, and other kitchen items. All linens, including towels, are included. You have access to all resort amenities -- that means the pool, the hot tub, the gym, free parking, etc.
Sadly, the resorts do not allow pets.
Wifi is $4.95/day or $15.95/stay. This is 100% a resort fee that I have 0% control over.
This is a timeshare property. Someone at the resort might (but probably won't) try to talk you into buying a timeshare. They'll even give you a present if you say yes! Saying yes means dealing with them for the next two hours, and that's *not* what you want on a vacation. BE SMART - SAY NO - GO ENJOY YOUR VACATION! :)
