    Welcome Our Newest Big Bear Vacation Rental Cabin

    At Five Star Vacation Rentals, we’re always on the lookout for distinctive properties we can offer to our guests. ¬†We’re very choosy, so we can make sure you’ll find the finest quality and top notch luxury¬†regardless of which of our properties you may choose,. ¬†Our newest property is “Grand Lakefront,” and it meets our standards without any exception.

    Located right on the lake, this amazing property is nestled in Big Bear’s most exclusive neighborhood. It’s perched on a hill overlooking the lake and includes 250 feet of lake frontage. ¬†As you walk through the front door, you’ll realize the genius of the architect’s attention to design. ¬†The entire home is built to accentuate the amazing lake views. ¬†The home is constructed of full-round lodgepole pine logs from Montana. ¬†The builder fully assembled the home first in Montana to check for a perfect fit. ¬†The home was then disassembled, transported, and reassembled on the present site. ¬†It’s a very expensive way to build a home. ¬†But when you’re concerned with getting every last detail absolutely correct, it starts to make sense. ¬†As you spend time in this beautiful home, you’ll begin to notice all the details that showcase the craftsmanship required to build it. ¬†See more information¬†on our Grand Lakefront page.

    As the glow from the fire grows dim late in the evening, you can gather the kids for some star gazing. ¬†Enjoy locating the constellations, and watch as a steady parade of shooting stars makes their appearance. ¬†We’re convinced this will be a home you’ll want to visit again and again. ¬†Here are some more details:

    Bedroom #1 King with viewing window and private bath.

    Winter Fun and Golfing in Palm Springs/La Quinta With a Five Star Vacation Rental

    Enjoy a golf vacation this year.

    We got a call this week from our old aunt Clarisse in Duluth. ¬†She usually calls us this time of year to talk about the weather, so we were prepared. It seems the weather in Duluth has been unseasonable warm for this time of year. ¬†It’s only dipped below freezing 4 days this week. ¬†But even with this apparent¬†proof of global warming, Aunt Clarisse calls us each November to let us know she’s packing away her Bermuda shorts for the winter, and pulling down her suitcases. ¬†And is that spare bedroom of ours still available for Thanksgiving?

    Well that got us to thinking. ¬†How wonderful would it be if when your own aunt Clarisse calls (or Laura, or Betty, or Norma, or Susan), you could inform her you’re handling things a bit differently this year. ¬†Yes, she’s always welcome to come visit, but no, she won’t be in the guest bedroom. ¬†And she should also delay packing away her overly-plaid shorts. ¬†You see, this year, you’re having the entire family join you for a winter getaway to a Five Star Vacation rental in Palm Springs/La Quinta. We think you should seriously consider this.

    For many people, Thanksgiving and Christmas are days filled with both fun and meaning. ¬†We get to spend time with friends and relatives we don’t see too often, and we’re also able to enjoy some relaxing time recounting our many blessings away from the holiday rush. ¬†And if you want to enjoy this time along with some outdoor activities and nice weather, there’s really no better place than in a Five Star Vacation Rental in the La Quinta/Palm Springs area.

    No snow here! Just amazing golf course views.

    Consider this: While our dear dear aunt Clarisse lives in an area where even the ice cubes migrate to warmer climates, you can plan the holiday of a lifetime for your extended family in one of our luxurious Southern California desert vacation rentals. ¬†The average winter temperatures in La Quinta rarely drop below 60 during the day, so while all the folks back home may be shopping for parkas and cutting firewood, your entire party can enjoy the holidays in shorts and a light jacket. And while much of the country must pack away their golf clubs for the winter, you can make sure yours continue to get a workout. That’s a much better option, don’t you think?

    We’ve got two amazing properties available. ¬†Our Spacious Modern Perfection at PGA West sits right on the golf course. ¬†Imagine the looks you’ll get ¬†back home when you let them know you spent your holidays playing golf with folks who have never seen a snow shovel. ¬†This home is right on the 4th fairway and has both a pool and spa to relax in at the end of the day. ¬†Palm Springs is close by with great shopping and outlet stores for last-minute gifts.

    Let the folks back home build snowmen. You can enjoy this view instead.

    Our La Quinta Country Club Home is an absolute gem. ¬†This luxury home overlooks the fairway and has panoramic mountain and lake views. ¬†Plus, it comes with access to the¬†Mountain View Country Club, so you can enjoy golfing and maybe even get in a bit of celebrity watching. ¬†And we know you’re going to want to spend some quality time in the infinity pool to enjoy the fairway views while you wrinkle up smiling at the amazing comfort and quality of this finely-crafted home.

    Call us today at 310-780-3411 to book your winter getaway in one of our Palm Springs/La Quinta luxury vacation rentals. ¬†And if you’d prefer some snow for your winter vacation,¬†you can view our Big Bear cabins on this page. ¬†Please be sure to also look at our other luxury rentals in¬†Park City,¬†Southern California Beaches,¬†Mammoth Mountain, and¬†Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. ¬†As always, you can depend upon Five Star Vacation Rentals to ensure that any one of our vacation rental homes and cabins will meet and exceed your expectations. ¬†We know that your vacation time is precious, and we are constantly working to make sure that your only regret will be that you couldn’t stay with us longer.

    If You Stay In a Hotel Instead of a Five Star Vacation Rental Your Car Insurance May Go Up

    Summer is quickly passing by, and you have yet to plan your family vacation. That’s okay; we’re here to help. But you must listen to what we say, or you could end up with a life of regret. Seriously.

    You take a real gamble with your vacation when you stay anywhere else but in one of our luxurious rental properties. ¬†Aside from the fact that our feelings will be deeply hurt, you could well be destined for a real vacation nightmare. In an earlier blog we detailed the heartache you’ll face before you even get to sleep on your first day in a hotel vacation. We start this week’s blog on the night you arrive at your hotel after you’ve finally got the entire family in bed. It’s been a long day, and the family finally starts drifting off to sleep.

    Be sure to ask for extra pillows. You're going to need them.

    A few moments after you start to swim out into the warm fluffy ocean of vacation dreams, you learn that 4am is the exact right time for members of the¬†Audubon Society to embark on their birdwatching trek for the day. ¬†Now fully awake, again, the entire family listens intently as the birdwatchers slowly file past your room with each practicing a specific bird call they will be using to coax birds closer throughout the day. ¬†While you’d really rather be sleeping, ¬†you are all astonished at the amazing variety of bird calls produced by the 150 or so bird lovers passing just outside your door. ¬†And as the hallway finally begins to quiet down, your room begins to brighten up. ¬†The sun is rising on the first full day of your vacation.

    When Timmy doesn't sleep well, he's grumpy all day

    The entire family is grumpy, tired, and hungry. But since you’re not in one of our luxurious Five Star Vacation Rentals, there is no kitchen, no refrigerator, and no microwave. You’ve got to trek outside in search of food.

    But first you have to find your car. A late-model white SUV sure seemed like a good idea at the dealership when you bought it, but now you’re looking at a sea of them in the hotel parking lot. No worry. You pull out your key dongle and holding it high above your head you trigger the car’s alarm. You hear a distant honking and start working toward the sound. In almost no time at all, you find your car. Unfortunately, you also find that some lovesick teenager has scratched the message, ‚ÄúI hate you Brad‚ÄĚ across the hood of your car. It seems Brad also drives a late-model white SUV, and his ex-girlfriend is no better at finding his car than you were at finding yours. ¬†Oh well.

    Undaunted, you pile the family into the car and commence your search for food. You’re determined to make this a fun day. You tell them to look on the bright side. At least you’re not Brad, and your car insurance rates had to go up eventually anyway.

    Is this really what you had in mind?

    Most families get only one vacation a year, and many families can only get away once every few years or so. Your vacation time is too important to leave to chance. Every year families return from vacations with stories of fun things they did, but all too often these stories are tempered with tales of horrible hotel rooms, noisy neighbors and lousy parking. So let’s divide up your vacation and make sure this one is a winner. You start planning for fun things to do in one of our many destinations, and we’ll be sure to have only the most luxurious quality cabins, condos and homes ready for you when you arrive. Almost all of our units offer private parking in only the best neighborhoods. We promise that your car will not be marred with the message, ‚ÄúI hate you Brad,‚ÄĚ or we’ll give you your money back. Honest.

    This is not our actual staff, but we answer our phones just like these people

    In the meantime, please call us at 310-780-3411 to book your vacation getaway. Browse all of our Big Bear cabins on this page.  If you’re planning a vacation somewhere other than Big Bear, please be sure to look at our luxury rentals in Park City,Palm Springs/La Quinta, Southern California Beaches, Mammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  Regardless of where you may go, you’ll have the confidence of knowing that Five Star Vacation Rentals is working to make your vacation relaxing and memorable.

    It’s our goal to make sure that you enjoy your second, third, and fourth stay with us even more than your first.

    The Virtues of Staycationing, Nearcationing, or Just Enjoying Southern California

    It seems that in the life of every Southern Californian there comes a time when you look at your spouse and say, ‚ÄúYou know, I just realized we haven’t been to Disneyland since your Uncle Harold visited us back in 2007. ¬†I think they’ve got a couple of new attractions.‚ÄĚ

    Well, actually, they do! And so for this week’s blog, we’re going to encourage all our Southern California friends to dive in and participate in the recently-coined activities of a ‚Äústaycation‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúnearcation.‚ÄĚ As the names imply, some folks are electing to stay closer to home for upcoming vacations, and we’re here to encourage that. We’ve got some of the most luxurious accommodations available near Southern California beaches, so you can plan out an amazing vacation very near home.

    Staycations are a great new trend, and with a Five Star Vacation Rental, you can maximize both the fun and value of staying near home for your upcoming getaway. Here are just a few of the advantages:

    Resistance is futile. Go see the mouse.

    Plan a vacation with your kids and their friends. Many of our kids have friends they will miss over the summer, and would love to have them along on a vacation. Since most of our Southern California beach properties have large sleeping capacities, it can be a great getaway with room for all your kids’ friends in tow. It’ll be a delight to listen to them laughing and giggling late into the night in the luxury of one of our vacation rentals. Get them all out of bed the following morning for a quick drive to Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, or just a short walk to the beach. No plane tickets, no airports, no rental cars ‚Äď just great fun in a luxury vacation rental near the beach.

    Feel the Ocean Breeze

    You can finally get caught up with friends and relatives. Count up the number of times you’ve told some family member or friend, ‚ÄúLet’s make some time to get together.‚ÄĚ Most of us can sadly count up quite a few of those. Well, renting one of our big luxury homes nearby is a great way to make that happen.

    Call each of those friends and relatives and tell them to set aside that special night when you’re going to have them over for a barbecue at your vacation rental beach home. Imagine how much more special that night will be as you all enjoy the cool evening breeze and watch the sun set on the ocean from the deck of your Five Star Vacation Rental. It’ll make the time all that more special to have them spend the night in one of the guest suites and just pick up in the morning where you left off the night before. ¬†Or have everybody meet at Disneyland. ¬†Enjoy a great day at the park, and then caravan back to your vacation rental home at the beach. ¬†You can all get up the next morning and walk down to the beach to continue the fun. ¬†This is an amazing way to finally make the time to get together with those you care about the most.

    Romantic Beach Wedding

    Plan the perfect summer wedding, family event, or church retreat. Do you have a wedding coming up with guests coming in from out of town? ¬† Five Star Vacation Rentals can be a perfect solution that everyone will remember as a wonderful time. ¬†Do yourself and your loved ones a favor. ¬†Skip that thought you had that went something like this: ¬†“Well, if we move Johnny out to the couch, and have Uncle Jim and Aunt Mary take his bed, then we’ll get the rollaway out of storage and . . . ” ¬†Don’t do it! ¬†Make this a special time filled with joy, not old lumpy bedding and long lines for your bathroom.

    Last November we had a bridal party rent one of our Laguna Beach homes. Jessica was the bride and she wrote us a note to tell us her family’s stay leading up to her wedding was ‚Äúabsolutely amazing.‚ÄĚ ¬†Her entire bridal party enjoyed nightly sunsets on the ocean with lots of room to move around. ¬† They had no musty old roll-away beds and no lines for the bathrooms! ¬† Jessica and her family took a joyous occasion and turned it into a wonderful experience for everyone involved, not just the bride and groom. ¬†¬†Read more of her comments and see which of our homes she chose here. So whether you’re planning a wedding on the beach or anywhere in Southern California, one of our Five Star Vacation Rental beach homes is certain to make this an amazing time.

    A November Wedding . . . Relaxing Family Time . . . And Amazing Laguna Beach Views

    Laguna Beach Sunset
    A Five Star Sunset

    We recently received a note from one of our guests who stayed at our Laguna Beach Gem. ¬† Jessica rented this beautiful home for her entire family to spend the week of her wedding together. They had a great time. She notes in her letter that they found the house to be ‚Äúabsolutely amazing‚ÄĚ and it was a great home base for the entire family.

    View From Kitchen
    Drink In the Kitchen View

    We pride ourselves on our professional photography, but she said our photos don’t do justice to the property. Of course, you’ll have to judge that for yourself after you spend some quality time soaking up the sunsets, ocean breezes and luxurious appointments that you’ll find in this stunning property.

    Take a closer look at some of the amenities that Jessica noted in her letter: She says ‚Äúthe kitchen has GIANT windows with unobstructed views of the ocean so every sunset was enjoyed over wine while making dinner.‚ÄĚ She also loved the floor plan and overall roominess of the property: ‚ÄúIt gives enough space and you never feel cramped.‚ÄĚ

    And while the amenities at our lovely Laguna Beach home will keep you smiling all day, Jessica notes that the luxury continues to impress even when you sleep: ‚ÄúThe beds are VERY comfortable.‚ÄĚ

    A short walk to the beach
    A Short Walk To The Beach

    The experience continues if you want the party to expand outside. This unique property has three ocean-view decks and a back yard. It’s a short walk to the beach, or a short drive to downtown Laguna Beach with its art galleries, world-class restaurants, and unique shopping.

    Why Choose Luxury Vacation Rentals?

    The bags are packed; the flights are booked‚Ķ all that‚Äôs missing from your perfect vacation getaway is where to stay. For years, hotels were the standard of choice for luxury accommodation. Increasing, however, discerning travelers are discovering that luxury vacation rentals are the perfect ‚Äúhome away from home‚ÄĚ ‚Äď balancing five star amenities with personal comforts and privacy.

    Luxury Vacation Homes Set the Standard for Comfort, Exclusivity and Privacy

    Book your getaway to luxury!
    Big Bear Luxury from

    From romantic getaways to family-friendly fun, five star vacation rentals balance the need for luxurious accommodation with personal privacy. There‚Äôs no traipsing down a hallway late at night to visit the ice machine, no loud slamming doors or flushing toilets, and no disturbances from boisterous neighbors arriving home past midnight. Best of all, instead of waking up early for that stale continental breakfast, you can relax in your bathrobe with a cup of coffee out by the pool ‚Äď you‚Äôd never do that in a hotel, would you?

    Increasingly, a five star beach home or a five star big bear vacation rental is also a smart choice for budget-friendly accommodations. Many discerning travelers are surprised to learn that the cost of a week’s stay at a five star rental may be far less than a week at an equivalent hotel. This is especially true for large families or several couples traveling together. Instead of booking several hotel rooms, families and friends can relax and live comfortably at their new home away from home. There’s no need to cram into a crowded bedroom or share bathrooms. With a luxury vacation rental, everyone has their own space!

    A luxury vacation rental is all about the little extras. Multiple master suites make vacation rentals a natural choice for several couples traveling together. Gourmet, stainless steel kitchens make cooking fun ‚Äď whether you‚Äôre brewing hot chocolate after a day on the slopes at Big Bear or grabbing a few snacks to take down to your Laguna beach party. Need to keep the kids entertained? A large big screen TV or board games will keep them occupied in the family room, while you and your spouse share a quiet moment together. At the end of the day, relax in the privacy of your own pool or hot tub ‚Äď without having the moment spoiled by other hotel guests. Whether you choose a cottage, condo or home, thousands of square feet of space, multiple bedrooms and expansive outdoor space sure beat a tiny hotel room and balcony.

    Selecting a five star vacation rental is just the beginning! At Five Star Vacation Rentals, our talented team also specializes in creating a completely custom experience tailored to your needs and interests. From Big Bear and Mammoth Lakes to the Southern California beaches and beyond, we specialize in helping our guests discover unique, authentic activities. This is the type of personalized service and attention to detail offered by the most exclusive hotel concierges.
