July Fun in Big Bear

Are you ready to grab hold of some great times in Big Bear? July is one of our favorite times to plan a Big Bear getaway. Here’s some of the fun stuff going on:

Big Bear hosts the biggest 4th of July fireworks show in all of Southern California. This annual event is something that many families return for every year. There are many vantage points around the lake, and the reflection off the surface of the water makes the display come alive in ways you can barely imagine.  Combine the show in the sky with some great barbecue cooked on the deck of your Five Star Vacation Rental. It’s certain to please the entire family, and make for a long weekend you’ll all remember fondly. We still have a handful of cabins available, so book online at this link, or give us a call at 310-780-3411.

With the kids out of school for the summer, a getaway during the week can be a real treat. The weekday experience in Big Bear can offer a slower pace with fewer people. We often have a better selection of cabins during the week as well. If your version of a relaxing getaway includes fewer crowds and less cars on the road, a weekday excursion to Big Bear will likely be a great choice.

PainterOn July 1st and 2nd, you can enjoy the Big Bear Artwalk Festival. This annual event hosts a juried display of some of the best work by local and regional artists. Bring your wallet, and you plan on finding something that you’ll want to hang on the wall.

“You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” presented by the Community Arts Theater Society continues through July 8th at the Big Bear Lake Performing Arts Center. This Broadway musical classic is a fun romp through the comics with something for everyone in the family.  You can get more info and purchase tickets at this link: http://www.bigbeartheater.org/charlie-brown

Summer Starts Here

With summer just about upon us, it’s a perfect time for you to start planning for the vacation that you meant to do last year. And the year before.

We really try to make it simple, so you can get an amazing family vacation to a fun and exotic destination planned with almost no extra effort at all. Our top destination, Big Bear, features online booking and plenty of photos to help you choose your perfect getaway. We also have several cabins located adjacent to each other that you can book as a group, so you’ll have room for up to 28 guests with this one and 26 with this choice.  All of our cabins are equipped to help your time away be one full of luxury.

Summer in Big Bear is a great experience. There’s more than enough going on during summer to help keep your kids’ heads tilted skyward instead focusing on their iPhones. Here are just a few things to keep you happily occupied:

Take to the lake. Big Bear Lake offers a plethora of fun activities. The anglers in your party will enjoy dropping a line in the water and trying to land something for dinner. The lake is regularly stocked with rainbow trout, and you’ll also find bass, carp, catfish and crappie. There are few things more satisfying than feeding the family with your own fresh catch of the day.

Boating on the lake can be a great way to relax. Rent a boat, grab a good book and some sunscreen, and you’re set for a relaxing time just drifting around with the sounds of the water gently lapping at the side of the boat only interrupted by the occasional laugh or squeal of delight from nearby swimmers and water skiers.

Region capture 15Ready for something a bit more intense and higher off the ground? Try your hand at ziplining. Action Zip Lines has some of the most amazing high-speed runs you can find anywhere. There are few things that rival the thrill of flying through the trees on a zip line. Get more details at their website: http://actionziplinetours.com/

Make This Father’s Day Extraordinary

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and this presents an opportunity to show dad exactly how much you appreciate all he’s done for you. Make sure he knows you remember all those awkward calls you made in your youth when you were a bit short of rent money, needed help buying your books for school, or found yourself stranded with a broken down car in need of a quick rescue. For all these reasons and a thousand more, you can make this year the one he remembers for a lifetime.

Five Star Vacation Rentals has a number of great choices that can meet and exceed whatever activities dad likes best. If he’s a golfer, we have some great luxury villas right on the fairway in La Quinta. We just added a few truly spectacular properties that will have dad’s eyes getting wide as he smiles looking out over the beautiful green expanse just waiting for him and his clubs. Check out all of our La Quinta properties and book online at this link.

Is dad more of a laidback-relax-on-the-beach kind of guy? How about setting him up with a relaxing stay at our Villa la Estancia resort in Nuevo Vallarta?   This high rise vacation spot is right on the beach and offers a complete resort experience with a swim-up bar and just a momentary walk to the adjacent beach. There’s golfing nearby as well as lots of great shopping and local cuisine in Puerto Vallarta. If dad wants to try his hand at some serious fishing, there’s marlin and tuna charters leaving regularly out of the Puerto Vallarta marina. Check out more photos and details at this link.

Of course, Big Bear is our most popular destination, and there’s always something for dad to enjoy here. Big Bear Lake has some great fishing and water sports. Rent a boat for the afternoon, and do some fishing or just drift around enjoying the sound of the water gently lapping at the boat while you all enjoy a picnic on the water or quietly relax with a good book in the cool breeze over the lake. Later, you can treat dad to some steaks prepared just the way he likes them in the gourmet kitchen of your Five Star Vacation Rental. The entire family will enjoy the benefits of celebrating dad, but make sure you go all out to give him the special time he deserves. This link has our Big Bear vacation rentals.

We hope this sparks your desire to carve out some time to make a special getaway just for Dad.  Take a look at all our Big Bear properties at this link: http://www.fivestarvacationrental.com/big-bear-rentals.

Plan an Exotic Getaway to Nuevo Vallarta

Summer break is almost here for most families with kids in school, and it’s a great time to start planning something special for the summer break. If you don’t make any plans, you may end up watching summer slip away and you’ll lose your chance for some special family time.

ViewWhile Big Bear is our most popular getaway, we also have some great opportunities for relaxation in Mexico. Our seaside resort at Villa la Estancia is consistently a favorite with our guests. Take a look at these photos, and you’ll see why.

The resort sits right on the sandy beach, so you’ll have a quick walk from your room directly to the beach. Of course you’ll be immediately faced with a dilemma as you pass by the huge swimming pool with its swim-up bar and comfy lounge chairs. Once you decide that you’ll try out the heated pool later and continue heading toward the refreshing surf just beyond the beach, you’ll feel a smile start to cross your face. The beach continues about as far as you can see, and the gentle sounds of the surf and birds help to create a level of relaxation you just can’t get anywhere else.

When you’re ready to head back to the resort, you have more fun choices to make. Will you dine at one of the fine onsite restaurants, take the short trip into Puerto Vallarta to enjoy some local cuisine, or will you take advantage of the full kitchen in your Five Star Vacation Rental to create something fresh you cook yourself? Each of these is a great option, and you’ll likely want to try all three at different times during your stay.

Region capture 84We have over a dozen luxury units at Villa la Estancia, and we can configure the units for groups from just a couple to 10 guests, and larger groups can rent more than one unit to keep everybody in close proximity. Villa la Estancia is a quick flight away from Southern California, but it’s a world away in luxury and sheer relaxation.

You can view all of our Nuevo Vallarta condos and book online at this link. You can also have a great family holiday in  Big BearMammoth MountainPark CitySouthern California Beaches, and La Quinta. No matter what city you are visiting, staying in a Five Star Vacation Rental property will ensure that you experience the absolute best in luxury accommodations.

What Kind of Big Bear Vacation Would You Like?

Spring is a great time in Big Bear, and this is a perfect time to drop everything and take that long-delayed family vacation you’ve been meaning to schedule. The mountain air feels especially crisp most mornings, and each day presents new opportunities for getting some relaxing time with your family or friends in a luxury Five Star Vacation Rental.

Cycling takes off during spring in Big Bear. The Big Bear Cycling Association keeps an active schedule going, and there is something on the calendar most days.
