Great check-in experience95% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

This is another Melissa Wilson designed and managed Idyllwild home so being pampered and spoiled and having a 5 star treatment is always part of your stay. Check out my other vacation homes to see my superhost 5 star ratings and reviews at airbnb.com/rooms/11770906 & 19924620. I pay close attention to all the details like the plush bedding, the selection of pillows, the industrial style lighting throughout, and the drawers and cabinets filled with “oops, I forgot or ran out” items.

Melissa’s place was just as she described. It was the perfect spot for two people. We used the kitchen, which is really nicely done. It was warm and cozy and we appreciated all the little amenities like the snacks and cable tv. I would highly recommend this spot and if I’m ever i…

Such a cozy and beautiful home. The area is super nice and quiet. Perfect for evening walks in the neighborhood. Everything you would need if you didn't bring with you was there. Very thoughtful extra touches!

We had a lovely stay at the cabin. It was very cozy, the property is pretty and only 5 mins from town. Thanks to the fireplace (for which there are detailed instructions) and a few space heaters, the cabin was warm even when the outside temperature dropped to 30F. We so appreciat…

Melissa’s place was wonderful! It was super cozy, very clean, and exactly as pictured. Melissa was also an amazing host and provided thorough instructions prior to our stay. We are looking forward to staying here again in the future.

We stayed at this cozy cottage for one night in mid November. Melissa's place is completely remodeled and very clean. We had our 2 and 6 year old kids with us and there was enough room from everyone. They enjoyed the Hulu, netflix and wooden toys. Everything you need is there inc…

A cute and cozy space. Melissa was very fast to reply and provided nice local tips. Overall, the bed is in a tight space that requires you climb on and off it from the end of the bed. The loveseat couch is also tiny - not comfortable. We paid a high cleaning fee but were then ex…

Thanks for your stay Conrado. I get so disappointed when guests aren't 100% satisfied. Just so you know the details in case you want to come again... I show a clear view of the bed on the photos and you are right, not much space on the sides but wanted to fit a queen in there instead of a full bed. I say and show in the listing that the futon couch is smaller than a twin. I also provide a queen blow up mattress, maybe you didn't see that in brown binder of information. I have my home deep cleaned every time a guest leaves, not lightly cleaned like many. Because I allow dogs, 1 day bookings and back to back bookings I ask guest to help out with a few things so it will be ready on time for the next guests. I also pay a living wage to my crew instead of minimum wage. I don't keep any of that cleaning fee. Thanks again for your stay.
