The cabin owners were very nice and the place is cute, to be sure. The view was fabulous, Idyllwild is adorable, and the price was good.
We aren't all that fussy, really, so the people before us leaving a little bit of a mess didn't bother us (no maid service). But: Arrive there in daylight! We had a really tough time finding it and would have been really lost in the dark. If you go in the winter- don't go in snow without snow tires or 4WD, they live on a very steep hill for your average compact car.
My main frustration has nothing to do with the owners, rather it has taken Flipkey/Tripadvisor over a month and still no refund for our damage deposit, despite their claims otherwise. Be prepared for losing that money a long while. Again, the owners submitted it on time, but TripAdvidor did not follow through.More
