Hollywood Comes to Five Star Vacation Rentals. Again.

We’re starting to feel like a stage mom.

We’ve got these amazing kids (read “vacation rental cabins, estates, and condos”) that have such overwhelming appeal, it’s only natural that folks are drawn to their luxury and custom features.  And with increasing frequency, people are putting our kids in TV shows and movies.  In recent months our properties have appeared on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” ABC’s “The Lookout,” and the indie film, “A Separate Life.” We’re mighty proud about that.

Our most recent brush with fame is with Cabin 10, The Grand Lakefront in Big Bear.  The cabin was featured on WETV’s Kendra On Top episodes, “The Big Bare” and “Cabin Fever.”   Kendra and her husband Hank celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary with a weekend stay in this cabin.  And we’d be hard pressed to choose a better destination.

If you watched the show, you saw the squeals of delight as the young starlet arrived.  “Look how beautiful this is!” was her first reaction, and she threw in a “this is awesome!” as well.  But this is nothing new to us.  That’s how we reacted when we first saw this amazing log estate on the lake.  And our guests have pretty much the same reaction each time they arrive as well.  It’s a remarkable property.

This home is constructed of full round lodgepole pine logs from Montana. And to ensure the absolute best quality, the builder actually assembled the entire cabin on site in Montana to check that each joint and log fit exactly to their rigorous demands. Once they were satisfied with it, they disassembled it log by log and loaded it on trucks bound for an exclusive lot in Big Bear right on the lake. As you can imagine, this is a very expensive way to build a cabin. But after you spend a few minutes wandering around inside, you’ll quickly begin to see the level of luxury and craftsmanship that can only be achieved by this extreme attention to detail.

This cabin truly represents the absolute best that Big Bear has to offer.  You’ll enjoy all the water sports with the included dock, and the lake views from the deck are just amazing.  The gourmet kitchen will delight even the most demanding of chefs, and you’ll be surrounded by the constant reminders that this luxury home is the product of many hours work at the hands of many talented craftsmen.  If you’re looking for someplace to enjoy the full star treatment, Cabin 10 is a great choice.

Be sure to look at all our luxury rentals in Big Bear.  We can also help you book your getaway to one of our other destinations in Park CityPalm Springs/La QuintaSouthern California BeachesMammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  We’re committed to making sure your vacation will be a great memory for your entire family.  We’ll do our best to have you feeling like Hollywood royalty.  Call us at 310-780-3411 for more details or to book with us on the phone.

Oktoberfest Is Just Around the Corner. Book Your Vacation Rental Cabin Early

We’re getting a jump on September events in Big Bear, because the month is packed with some of our most popular of the year.  If you’ve never visited Big Bear during September, it’s a real treat as the leaves begin to turn with the evenings become cooler.  And every September we’re excited to welcome back Southern California’s most popular Oktoberfest celebration.

Big Bear’s first Oktoberfest was celebrated back in 1971, and it grows in popularity and attendance each year.  This year’s celebration commences September 14th and continues for 7 consecutive weekends through October 27th.  Many of our guests make it an annual rite of fall to reserve their favorite cabin and spend some time drinking in (literally and figuratively!) the fun and culture of the event.  Once you attend, you’ll soon see why.

This year’s celebration will continue the tradition of offering some of the world’s finest German beers, bratwursts, sauerkraut, and apple strudel.  Big Bear prides itself as one of the country’s most authentic Oktoberfests with much of the cuisine and brews created by German brewers, bakers, and butchers.  The list of tasty ales keeps expanding each year, and you can count on finding brews ranging from traditional German varieties to yummy flavored beers including lemonade, pumpkin, raspberry and more.  You haven’t fully lived until you’ve sampled a steaming hot fresh bratwurst washed down with an icy cold authentic German beer.  If you’re not drooling, check your pulse.

And you’ll have plenty of opportunity to work off your meals with lots of dancing and unique shopping booths to stroll through as well.  If you’ve been searching for an excuse to break out your lederhosen and get down to some serious German fun, this is it.

Oktoberfest is always a busy time for us here at Five Star Vacation Rentals, so we recommend that you get your reservation in early.  And be sure to ask about a discount for weekly rentals if you want to stay longer to enjoy some of the other September events.   Check back for next Friday’s blog with details about this year’s Big Bear International Film Festival.

You can view all our Big Bear cabins at this link, or call us at a 310-780-3411.  We’ll be happy to help you put together the ideal Oktoberfest getaway.  And while Big Bear is certainly our favorite spot to celebrate Oktoberfest, you can also enjoy great beer and fine dining at any of our other destinations including Park CityPalm Springs/La QuintaSouthern California BeachesMammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  Regardless of which one of our luxury getaway locations you choose, you can be assured that we’re working to make sure your vacation will be one you’ll want to repeat again every year.

National S’mores Day is Almost Upon Us. Book Your Big Bear Vacation Rental Before It’s Too Late.

You look at the calendar and can’t believe that you did it again this year.  Summer is retreating quickly into Fall, and you have yet to gather the family for even a single special event or weekend away.  But don’t despair.  Five Star Vacation Rentals is just a phone call or mouse click away with a vacation that will have your entire family cheering with delight.

National S'mores Day is August 10th

Just in case you may need some further encouragement, we’ve pulled out our special events calendar and found dozens of worthy reasons to propel you out of your easy chair and into a luxury vacation estate or cabin rental in Big Bear.  Here’s just a sampling of worthy holidays on the August calendar:

As we mention in our title, National S’mores day is just around the bend on August 10th. Legend has it that this yummy treat was created by a group of Girl Scouts gathered around a campfire. Once they combined the melted marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers, they quickly started insisting, “We want s’more!” And a national treasure was born. You can keep your fancy French desserts. Just give us s’mores!

But August is full of fun commemorations you can celebrate in Big Bear. Leading up to National S’mores Day, you can enjoy National Raspberry Cream Pie Day on August 1st and National Ice Cream Sandwich Day on August 2nd. Due to a quirk in scheduling, National Watermelon Day and National Mustard Day both fall on August 3rd. We encourage you to celebrate both, but not simultaneously. We’re going to skip entirely any recommendation that you celebrate National Work Like a Dog Day on August 5th, and move immediately to National Wiggle Your Toes Day on August 6th. We can think of no better place to celebrate this one than with your feet dangling in the cool waters of Big Bear Lake.

National Bad Poetry Day is August 18th

There’s not space enough to list all the daily celebrations coming up in August, but you can choose your favorite from among National Bad Poetry Day, National Kiss and Make Up Day (our favorite), and National Frankenstein Day. And be prepared to create your own national holiday. Once you get settled into your luxurious Five Star Vacation Rental, you’ll quickly agree to create the “National We’re Going To Do This Again Next Summer Day.”

Start your annual celebration by viewing all our  Big Bear cabins and estates.   Or call us at 310-780-3411, and we’ll gladly help you choose the perfect cabin for your family to celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day (August 22nd).

And you are of course free to celebrate any of these worthy holidays at our other properties as well. Be sure to look at our luxury rentals in  Park CityPalm Springs/La QuintaSouthern California BeachesMammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  We’re committed to making sure your vacation will be a great memory for your entire family.

Plan Your July Big Bear Getaway!

Summer is in full swing, and it’s time to head up to Big Bear for some great family fun.  July is one of our favorite months on the mountain, because there’s so much going on.  Here’s just a sample of the fun you’ll have when you book your July getaway in one of our Five Star Vacation Rental luxury estates and cabins in Big Bear:

July 4th Celebration

Each year Big Bear hosts one of California’s largest fireworks displays, and it’s really an amazing event.  We all love a good fireworks show, but combine that with the beautiful reflections off the lake and the towering pines that ring the horizon, and you’ll soon see why so many people make this short trek every year.  The weather in July is usually great, and you can enjoy a relaxing time away from the heat and smog of the Southland while taking in one of our favorite patriotic holidays.

Take In a Show

Perhaps America’s most popular classic play, Rogers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma” is playing throughout July at the Big Bear Performing Arts Center. This play is great for the entire family, so grab your surrey, and make your way through corn that’s as high as . . . well you get the picture! For more details:  http://www.bigbeartheater.org.

Get Down With Some Bluegrass Music

Big Bear Bluegrass Festival runs July 12, 13 & 14, this year, and offers some of the best boot-stompin’ music to be found anywhere. The festival features fun hayrides and more than a few colorful characters wandering about in overalls with washboards. You’ll be amazed at the great music that can be created with utensils and laundry accessories! This is another event tailor made for the whole family, and we expect that you’ll all be dancin a jig quite soon after the music starts. See more info on their website at http://www.bigbearbluegrass.com.

Boating, Fishing, Hiking, Biking . . .

Five Star Vacation Rentals Offers Possum-Free Luxury

By now you all know that we live much of our lives dedicated to creating the absolute best vacations possible for our guests.  We’re proud of the fact that we have a steady stream of repeat guests.  Our properties are among the most luxurious you can find anywhere.  They’re well maintained, furnished with all our guilty pleasures, and situated in some of the most amazing resort destinations in the world.

But sometimes we like to consider the possibilities that often befall those who are foolish enough to seek lodging any place else.  We’ve warned our readers about these pitfalls in previous blogs here and here, but it bears repeating:  Don’t risk your precious vacation time anywhere else.   You may end up losing sleep and having to share your accommodations with furry little animals.  Let us explain.

We had a few quiet minutes in the office the other day, so we decided to Google, “worst vacation ever.”  Oh my, was this a sad search. One of the first hits was a review of a hotel in Myrtle Beach.  The very unhappy patron of this hotel gave the place a one star review and noted among other things that, “the rooms were pitiful. Not clean, dirty sheets . . . Possums in the room.”  Yes, possums.

But wait, there’s more.  One hotel in Miami Beach, Florida is ranked 190th out of 199 hotels in the area.  The description offered by one guest gives us a hint at the quality they found there: “Carpeting is stained and dirty. Towels are old, stained, & dirty. Beds are old, dirty, and stained. Walls are old, dirty, and stained.”  I think we see a pattern emerging here.  Hotel number 191 has even more colorful reviews. Our favorite is titled, “Manager threatened PREGNANT wife with pepper spray!!!” Some are from international travelers.  You don’t need to learn a new language to understand these folks: “Der absolute Horror” and “ORRIBILE!!!!!!!!!”  I think it’s safe to assume that the memories and stories these folks brought home from their vacations were pretty sad.

Now compare their reviews with some of the feedback we receive from our guests. Dana C. wrote of her recent stay, “Everything was awesome. . . Thank you again, Kevin and Maria for the awesome weekend…can’t wait for next year!!” Yes, Dana used “awesome” twice. We really like the sound of that word. Awesome.   And when Tony K dropped us a line about his stay, he had the following to say, “I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing weekend. Every one of your staff that I talked to and met were extremely helpful and friendly; it really made our stay more enjoyable. ”

Better Rustic Motif. Better Furnishings.

We realize that you have many choices when it comes to your next vacation. Each of us has had our share of bad experiences staying in some pretty awful places in our time.  Your time away is precious, and you should not risk it with inferior accommodations. We work hard to make sure that all our vacation rental properties will have you feeling pampered and relaxed. And we guarantee that you’ll never share your luxury estate rental with a possum, and we’ll never chase your pregnant wife with pepper spray.

Be sure to look at our luxury rentals in Big Bear,  Park CityPalm Springs/La QuintaSouthern California BeachesMammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  We’re committed to making sure your vacation will be a great memory for your entire family.  Call us at 310-780-3411 and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect place for your next vacation.

Summer in Big Bear is always amazing, so you’re in for a real delight.  While the temperatures are beginning to soar down in much of Southern California, Big Bear is a cool and crisp alternative.  You’ll want to pack light jackets for your June stay because it can get chilly in the evenings.  But this is really a treat.  Imagine your delight in settling down in front of a crackling fire with the family when just a couple days earlier you were all complaining about the heat at home.

While there’s never a shortage of things to do in Big Bear, June is an especially good month.  Here’s a sampling from our Big Bear Calendar of Events:

If you love live music  you’ll find lots of opportunities to satisfy your cravings this month.  Most weekends you’ll find great a great selection. The fun starts at about 7:30pm on June 1st with several excellent choices:

Who doesn’t love a parade? Pack up the family, and have some fun at this year’s Old Miners Big Bear Heritage Parade on June 15th. This annual event is a small slice of Americana, and you’re sure to enjoy yourself. So grab some folding chairs, bottled water, and sun block. We’ll see you there.

And our avid cyclists will want to be sure to plan their Big Bear getaway in June. After keeping your bike in storage during the winter, it’s time to dust it off and hit the road again. The Big Bear Cycling Association holds Community Bike Rides every Saturday for riders of all levels. The rides start on June 1st and riders should meet at Copper Q at 645 Pine Knot Blvd by 9am.

Prudent Tax Planning With A Great Vacation Getaway

Tax time is just about over, and we’re all breathing a sigh of relief.  If you had to pay, the pain will be subsiding soon.  If you’re getting a refund, well, let’s just imagine a few of the possibilities.

Most of us treat our tax refund as a gift from heaven, and that’s almost how it seems.  Though upon closer examination, we find the postmark betrays a much earthier origin.  For many of us, it’s perhaps the only piece of mail coming out of Washington that we actually enjoy opening.  All year long we labor and watch the numbers on our paycheck continue to grow larger in that column devoted to our taxes.  It’s nice to finally get a few of those dollars back.  And here at Five Star Vacation Rentals, it always puts us in the mood to celebrate.

We can’t imagine a better way to celebrate than with a stay in one of our luxury vacation rentals.  Our avid blog readers are well aware that we have some of the finest luxury estate getaways for you to choose from.  Big Bear is our most popular destination, but we’ve got great properties in  Park CityPalm Springs/La Quinta Southern California Beaches Mammoth Mountain, and  Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico as well.  And regardless of which one of our destinations you choose, you’ll have the comfort knowing that we’ve devoted ourselves to providing you with only the best quality properties to ensure you feel pampered and relaxed for the duration of your stay with us.  Here are a few suggestions we have for prudent investments with your tax refund.

1.  Make sure you spend the money in a way that is the polar opposite of how you actually feel about taxes.
This is perhaps the most fun of all.  We cringe and grumble over our tax burden.  When we’re together with friends, it’s often the topic of our conversations. We would love to pay less taxes, and our tax refund check is a small reprieve toward that end.  So, it can be amazingly delicious to use that money to pamper your family.  We see near daily reports of how the government spends our taxes frivolously, so what better response than to invest that money into the pure delight of our family?

2.  Book a stay at one of our getaways for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
You really don’t need an excuse to plan your getaway to one of our luxury vacation rentals.  As the ancient Greek historian Herodotus wrote in the 5th century BC, “If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it.” For the sake of your sanity, please call us today to book your getaway for no other reason at all.  We value your stability and sanity, and we’re here to help.  Please call us before it’s too late. 310-780-3411

3. Book a stay with us to celebrate some of your most important occasions.
Our lives are filled with milestones that we mark to help us remember the most important events.  We all have a birthday, and there’s really no better way to celebrate it than booking a luxury getaway in one of our vacation rentals.  But that’s just the start.  We have anniversaries, graduations, honeymoons, promotions, engagements and much more.  Pack your bags, and grab a camera, because your stay with us will become one that your entire family will remember and yearn to repeat.

As you can see, Five Star Vacation Rentals has some great luxury destinations ready to help you relax like you’ve never been able to before.  You can choose a luxury Big Bear Cabin, or a condo on the beach in Villa la Estancia.  Whether you’re looking to getaway for some upcoming event, or for no reason whatsoever, please call us at 310-780-3411.  We’ll be happy to help you create a fantastic getaway that will delight your entire family.


More Fun Events in Big Bear for May

In last week’s blog, we detailed a few of the great events happening in Big Bear during May.  You can see that blog at this link.  But we really only covered a handful of the fun things you’ll have to do during your stay with us in May.

Mother's Day is May 12th

We mentioned it last week, but it bears repeating.  May 12th is Mother’s Day, and it’s time you really showed her how much you appreciate all she does for you.  We understand that our wives often do things for us out of a sense of duty.  And other times their actions are simply because they love us.  You don’t have to be Dr. Phil to realize that if you take this opportunity to provide her with a spectacular demonstration of how much you really love her, she’ll have more of her thoughts toward you filled with love rather than duty.  Trust us.  The loving thoughts are much, much better.   You really need to do this.  Call us at 310-780-3411 to book your getaway for Mother’s Day.  But don’t delay.  We often sell out over that weekend.  Use this link to explore all of our luxury Big Bear estate cabins.

Meet Five Star Vacation Rentals’ Newest Luxury Big Bear Cabin

We’re very pleased to announce the newest addition to our Five Star Vacation Rental lineup of luxury estates.  No. 44 Dreamscape Villa is nestled in the forest in the Moonridge area of Big Bear.  It offers tree-top views and is very close to many of our favorite Big Bear attractions like Ski Slopes, Big Bear Snow Play, and the lake.

This cabin is pure delight and luxury crafted at the hands of Bob Dixon.  Bob has been building distinctive properties for nearly 40 years and some of Big Bear’s most desirable cabins started on the drafting tables at Dixon Construction. You’ll be delighted with the attention to detail as you relax in the log-themed decor and marvel at the majestic views from the deck.

We’ve filled the house with great diversions including a Foosball table, and a new Sony LED TV.  As the evening gets late, you will likely find yourself in front of the custom fireplace while you fix some steamy hot chocolate in the modern gourmet kitchen.  Be sure to spend a little while in the warm relaxation of the spa before you head off to bed.

Come morning, you’ll be back in the kitchen to cook up a perfect breakfast for the entire family.   One of you should sneak out early so the rest of the family can wake up to the wonderful smell of fresh coffee brewing.  We keep the kitchen stocked with all the cookware and utensils you’ll need to make anything from a simple omelet to a gourmet quiche.

After your first night, you’ll be faced with the dilemma that confronts most of our guests.  The cabin is so cozy and luxurious, you’ll consider just staying in for the entire day to drink in the wonderful architecture and amenities.  But Big Bear is full of fun things to do outside, and that’s likely why you choose to come in the first place.  We’ll leave it to you to resolve this dilemma as you wish.  But inside the cabin, or outside in wonderful Big Bear, you and your family will surely have a vacation to remember.

You can view more details about our new Dreamscape Villa at this link.  If you’re planning your winter getaway somewhere other than one of our luxury Big Bear cabins, we can help as well in the following areas:  Park City, UtahPalm Springs/La Quinta Southern California Beaches Mammoth Mountain, and  Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.
