About Yesenia Flores
This is my part-time job, I have a regular full-time job. Although, I have another job, I always make sure that I go check the house before all rentals to assure that it is in nice, clean condition for our guests. I want the house to be, the way I would like a rental that I went to be if I was going. I care about what I do very much, including the rental of this house.
Yesenia Flores purchased this House in 2005
Why Yesenia Flores chose Lake Arrowhead
LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! It's on the side of the lake (one house in front of us and there is the lake). You can walk down to the lake, to the trails along the lake, the private beach near by, and even walk to the village if you like. Near everything, but at the same time, somewhat secluded, so you can enjoy the peacefulness of the mountains.
What makes this House unique
Because it is our own personal home, it has some of that "tender, loving, homie care". It's not just a business or chain of properties, it's our second home which we care a lot about.
Check-in: 3:00 PM
Check-out: 11:00 AM
Minimum age of primary renter:25
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The home is clean and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Thank you for your review. I am glad you had a good time. Hope to have you as guests in the future.
My husband and I were fortunate to stay for the month of August. We live in Palm Springs and it was very convenient to come and go. The home was very well equipped with all necessities needed to cook and clean. It was very spacious and cozy and all bedrooms upstairs. I found it tranquil, quiet and a great location. You could hear the boats on the water from the front porch, and 5 minute walk to the lake. It was beautiful walking around all the private docks on the hiking trail. Never a bad view on the Lake! It was a great experience and would do it all over again. Thank you Yesenia for your home! You were a grand Host....
Thank you for your review Donna! Hope to accomodate you and your family again in the future.
We would not stay here again. The location was nice and the house was clean, but there were several things we are upset about. To start things off, we were given a quoted price for the weekend and then a day later it came back higher. The owner claimed it was because it was a holiday weekend...I beg to differ. It was not the official presidents weekend in feb, it was the weekend before. She claimed it was because of Valentine's Day which was on a Tuesday and we stayed Friday and Saturday nights. Definitely a shady reason to raise the prices and unacceptable. After discussing she graciously gave us the original lower price for the weekend. Upon arrival we found trash EVERYWHERE. The owner claims it was because of the snow and trouble with trash services. Not only trash overflowing in trash cans, but also near the front door. The house is also near a very busy road which I wouldn't want to stay near next time. The house was very clean and the decor was cute. The beds are lined with waterproof mattress covers which I totally understand, but they make a plastic rubbing noise every time you move...my husband didn't mind but it drove me crazy. The layout of the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs were very nice and fit our family perfectly. We didn't like how the kitchen was so separate from the family room downstairs. It was also very dark. We cooked a lot on this trip and felt very separated in the kitchen. Kitchen was well stocked. Because of the amount of time we spent cooking, we did break 2 items. I told the owner about the damage and unsuccessfully tried to find replacements. The tag on the broken welcome bear stated that it was from Rite Aid. We checked there and found similar items for $15.99. Just received our deposit reimbursement in the mail today and to our surprise we are being charged $60. When I expressed my disappointment the owner told me that I had three weeks to find the exact replacement and have it shipped to her mailing address of I was unhappy with the charge. I told her no thank you. Not spending another dime on that bear. We also broke a plant and she charged $20 for that...reasonable. Other than that we left the place extremely clean and treated the home with respect. Wish that we were treated with the same respect.
I am sorry about your experience, most of our guests have been pleased with our place. In regards to some of the items mentioned, I would like to clarify some things:
- The rental was from Saturday through Monday (cheaper than Friday thru Sunday).
- This was "Valentines" weekend which is a holiday/celebration for many and the rental for this weekend is normally higher. We missed out on several requests from Friday thru Sunday, one event until Monday (3 days), higher rental amounts since you were one of the ones that had expressed interest first. I felt a moral obligation to rent it to you (although we didn't have to).
- It did snow up there a lot this year which buried the trash cans in the snow, causing people to leave their trash bags outside. Animals go into trash bags and that's probably why there was trash outside. The wind could have blown some of the trash to the front of the house. It didn't sound as bad when you originally told me about it when you arrived. We are not up there every day, but when we are, we make sure everything is clean.
- I am sorry about the layout - this is how the house was built.
- I tried to find the same bear, which we liked a lot and had for many years and offered you the opportunity to find it, but you didn't want to.
Lastly, sorry you felt this way, but I think this all happened, because of the items that were broken and replacement cost (I couldn't find the same bear and that was the lowest priced one I found). Respectfully, Yesenia.
Every year my friend and I celebrate our birthdays together. This year we decided on the mountains for the first time. Our husbands thought we were crazy. We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting. There was lots of snow and shoveling it was hard and we made it fun. The house was impeccable clean and inviting. Parking was a challenge and we had to stop traffic a few times. I would like to go back in the springtime and take our grandchildren.
Thank you for your review and glad you guys had a great time up there. Yeah, the snow can make the parking very challenging up there, but once you get a hang of it, it is not bad. Glad to have you back in the future!
Nice, clean, comfortable property
It was on a busy street, but the location was very convenient
The parking was difficult and only for one car, but you get the hang of it quickly
Not much of a view, but VERY close to the lake and a short pleasant walk
The house doesn't have fun extras like a jacuzzi, pool table etc., but it has everything you need at a reasonable price.
I can't emphasize enough how clean and orderly the house was. We have been to Arrowhead twice and found mouse poop IN THE BEDS, if the house isn't rented enough, that can happen. NOT a chance here!! The owners are way too conscientious. I don't like feeling
Thank you so much for your review. I do, as an owner, care very much about the cleanliness and appearance of our home for our guests. Yeah, parking is hectic up there, especially with snow. Thanks again for your review and staying in our home.
Beautiful home, perfect for a family getaway 😊
Great location! My children loved our stay. Walking distance to the lake and 15 minute drive to snow valley for our snow play 😊Small side yard was perfect for the kids to build snowmen and play without worry of traffic. Would stay here again in a heartbeat, and will.
Thank you for your review and glad you and your family had a great time!
