Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Sunset Acres is a breathtaking home, situated on 5 acres and is a 1 mile drive to downtown Idyllwild. This Santa Fe-inspired, architectural beauty has designer touches throughout the entire house offering comfort and elegance for your mountain getaway. Unique features include six decks that provide mountain and ocean views*, abundant wildlife, numerous private trails on property, and access to a separate studio with ample deck space for peaceful relaxation and the best sunset view in Idyllwild!

The space
@sunset.acres on Insta. One of a kind custom home designed by architect David Lilieholm. While the house is amazing, the location makes it spectacular. With emphasis on site-specificity in design, the home was developed working with the natural features of the landscape in a way that enhances the opportunity to appreciate both the interior environment and the outside spaces. We've tried to include many pictures of the views, the 5 acres of private land and the trails on the property - but most of our guests say it is even better in real life. (see reviews)

We're at the end of a private road and it feels like you are on top of the hill (at 5500 ft, 1680 meters elevation) , yet only a few minutes from "downtown Idyllwild".

You have many choices on Airbnb in Idyllwild at various levels of comfort and price. This is a high end vacation home. We manage the place ourselves and take pride in our home. The home is professionally cleaned between all guests. The beds are made with clean sheets and duvet covers for all guests, and clean white cotton towels are provided. We have a strict no pet policy.


The home has 4 levels. The main level includes the main guest bedroom with king-sized bed, fireplace and private deck access and separate bathroom. A sunken living room level also includes dining area, patio and deck access and kitchen. The upstairs has a small loft area with fold out, full-size bed that would sleep two children comfortably or one adult and access to another deck. The lower level has a second bedroom with queen-sized bed, attached bathroom, workspace, laundry room, and access to lower level patio.

Other things to note

The main home has two bedrooms and a loft.
The seperate studio is really cool, but should be seen as a bonus room. It has no running water from December - May, and just a small space heater for heat. It is more of a summer space, really.

The living room and downstairs bedroom have televisions and DVD players and are equipped with DirecTV and Netflix.
We also have easy parking in the driveway. I know, seems obvious, but actually in Idyllwild not all homes have this.
As you can see in the pictures, there are stairs to get to the front door.

What else can we say...the place looks great in the photos, but every single person who has come over has a wow moment when they see the home and the views in real life.

Where you’ll be

Idyllwild-Pine Cove, California, United States

Idyllwild is a very special, small mountain town that offers hiking, mountain biking, shopping and fine dining. Sunset Acres is less than a three minute drive to downtown Idyllwild and a very short distance to Idyllwild's favorite hiking trail, Southridge. We are on a private 5 acre lot at the end of one of the nicest streets in Idyllwild.

We are located about 1.5 miles from Idyllwild Arts Academy.

Tara is a 3rd generation Idyllwild resident, whose grandparents settled in the village in the 1940s. Back in the early days of Idyllwild, they started the first grocery store, a clothing store, owned the hardware store, and the liquor store. Tara’s parents currently own and operate the historic Idyllwild Manor – one of the first AirBnB vacation rentals in the village. Jim was born and raised in the Netherlands and after spending some years in New York and Washington D.C., settled in San Diego in '05. Jim started coming up to Idyllwild for mountain biking, and immediately loved the town. Now the proud owners of Sunset Acres – we are super excited to share this incredible place with you. We are avid hikers and mountain bikers and can show you or tell you about all the best trails in town. As locals, we also know all the best restaurants, concerts, shops, etc. Just ask!!
