Decisions, Decisions. Grab Your Skis or Your Swimsuit?

February is just around the corner, and it’s a great time to plan a getaway with Five Star Vacation Rentals.  It’s also a unique time of year weather-wise. So, lets flip a digital coin together, and pick something fun to do in February.

Heads — Grab Your Skis

Ahhh, a great choice, and a very popular one.  The ski season is still going strong in February, so we recommend you hit one of our snow destinations.  Big Bear is our most popular area for a number of very good reasons.  You have two great ski slopes available with Snow Summit and Bear Mountain.  Both cater to skiers of all skill levels, and have lessons available for beginners.  Check out their website at

But there’s much more to Big Bear.  Even though some of you would love to ski night and day, there are lots of other fun things to do in Big Bear when you’re off the slopes.  The Village is a great way to spend evenings with lots of unique shops and great dining available.   Browse through our luxury vacation rental cabins, estates, and condos at this link: We also have snow units available in Mammoth Mountain and Park City, Utah.

Tails — Grab Your Swimsuit

Another great choice!  Lots of folks don’t realize that just a short plane ride to the south, and you’ll be in a beach paradise.  No shivering, no jackets, just a beach-side resort with great weather.  The average high February temperature at our Villa La Estancia resort is in the 80 ‘s, and the daily low temperatures average in the 60’s at night.  Sounds like beach weather, don’t you think?  Well, we agree, and heartily encourage you to book a week away at our luxurious getaway.  This vacation spot has been seen on Real Housewives of Orange County, and ABC’s “The Lookout” called the place just plain “gorgeous,” with some of the best service and amenities to be found in the region.  With the onsite spa, pools, and gourmet restaurants, it’s a perfect getaway for the entire family to relax and spend some quality time working on a winter tan.

Puerto Vallarta is just a short cab ride away, and offers some of the best regional shopping and authentic cuisine.  We’ve honestly never tasted lobster quite as good as can be found in some of the hole-in-the-wall little eateries around town.  And local artisans keep the many shops stocked with great knickknacks and accent items.

We realize that you get very little vacation time each year, so we’re dedicated to ensuring that your time spent in one of our luxury rentals will be a great value for your and your family.  Call us today at 310-800-5454, and we’ll help you plan the vacation of a lifetime.
