I PAY YOUR EXTRA FEES! I DON'T CHARGE EXTRA FOR YOUR DOGS like most rentals do :-) I PAY YOUR OCCUPANCY TAX (HOTEL TAX) that gets sent to Riverside County so you don't have to pay extra. I include convenience items so your home away from home is fully stocked. My homes are PROFESSIONALLY DEEP CLEANED EVERY STAY. I love to pamper & spoil my guests & give a 5 star hospitality to all. Please read my reviews, my guests say it all! I have three vacation rentals to meet you needs. Welcome home!

Thanks Travis for this great review! I loved hearing about the fun you had with your family. Come on back to make more memories... maybe when it snows! I have a great sledding yard with sleds available.

Such a cute getaway! The space is cozy and clean. The yard was bigger than I expected and perfect for my large dogs to play and run in. The fence is very tall so I felt secure at all times with them out there.

Melissa was a fabulous host who was very responsive and had a beautiful place. everything was just perfect and the location was close enough to walk into town. Our favorite was sitting out back in the hammock and sky chairs in the evening and looking up at the stars. Thank you…
