Beautiful Cabin!

I spent my bachlorette party weekend at the Starlight Seclusion and it was just perfect. It's beautifully decorated and well stocked with everything you need. It was spotless clean. The shower has amazing water pressure and the hot tub was just what we all needed. There were 4 of us and it was very cozy and comfortable. The only complaint was that there wasn't any firewood. I would have liked to be informed about this ahead of time. I would definitely stay here again.

Cozy romatic little cabin.

This is a super cute, cozy little cabin. Excellent for a romantic getaway. My boyfriend and I had a great time here. The hot tub isa wonderful way to end the day looking at the stars while it snows!Just make sure you don't lock yourself out! Be aware there is no dishwasher, wi-fi or cable but who careswhen you want to get away from it all. Probably best for one couple or a couple with 2 kids. It would be tight to fit two couples in this cabin.I will definitely be back.

A perfect place to escape, relax and reconnect with family.

The cabin was equipt with everything you would need in the kitchen. It was a surprise to find even a waffle maker. We loved the view and the hot tub. The parking and driving was nail biting being in the snow and ice and narrow road. The video library provided hours of entertainment. Having a fire in the fire place made it cozy. It was fun finding what others had left behind and we enjoyed adding our little finds. We would like to make this a family tradition!


Cabin is very secluded,quiet and charming. Did not think I could live without cable tv and internet for 3 days. But with the jacuzzi, BBQ, taking walks, reading and boardgames, time flew. Just wished it was a little cooler. Martha and her mother were very helpfull and left us alone, which we wanted. We would stay there again.

Not quite as expected!

The cabin is secluded, quiet and it has very nice views but it is rundown. The furniture and carpet was torn and stained. The bed creaked with the slightest movement, the bathroom floor was uneven and the shower enclosure was metal and very small. The hot tub seemed as if had not been maintained very well. My wife's new bathing suit was ruined. This would be a great cabin if its furniture gets updated and thoroughly clean.

Dear ArturoBack in April the property did have an older couch and it may have made the cabin seem run down. The owner did replace the sofa and has purchased a new queen bed in the master bedroom.The location is nice and secluded and we try to keep the prices reasonable for all guest. The Hot tubs are always carefully maintained and the bromine tabs left in the floater to keep it balanced. It is possible it was a little hi in bromine and may have faded the bathing suit.I apologize and invite you to visit again and see the cabin improvements. It is always our goal to address any concerns a guest may have. We want you to have a wonderful stay and be back next year.Sincerly,Martha Sanchez Idyllwild Vacation Cabins

amazing romantic weekend in an adorable cabin!

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for in a secluded romantic hideaway, sitting in the hot tub under the stars surrounded by nature, yet only a short drive from the adorable town of Idyllwild. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for cooking, the hot tub was ready to go when we showed up, and we even loved the retro VHS and DVD movie collection! One of my favorites was looking through all the little knick knacks and containers throughout the cabin and finding little memories and love notes left from previous guests. We will definitely be staying here again. Thanks!

It was our pleasure to have you.We look forward to your next stay.Martha Sanchez

Great view

We liked the location very much. The add said it sleeps 6,it does but not very comfortably. If there were young children I would not recommend this house. It said there were two loft spaces but really there was only one. The other above the kitchen is more of a platform and you have to crawl on your hands and knees. The vertical ladder(no slant)to get up there is very difficult to get up and down. The fold out couch mattress was so uncomfortable that two people could not sleep well, and one person had to sleep diaganly so your back didn't hurt. Same with the bed in the bottom bedroom. The jaquzzi never turnred off so you heard it all night shut off and then kick back in again. We turned the heat way low so it would not do it as often. The shower had great pressure and plenty of hot water, but the masking tape(that was peeling off) on the floor to keep one from slipping was a bit tacky. We had to go and buy a long lighter to turn on the bbq because the ignighter switch does not work, which is fine but it would have been great to know that before hand. Unfortunatly we did not get a lot of quite time because the neighbor was working on his deck and sanding and sawing all day. At night though it was very peacfull and the veiw of the stars were great. We were 4 people staying there and I would not do that again. I would stay there again with just two people if the mattresses were better.

Peaceful, cozy and very comfortable

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at starlight seclusion. We had come to the area to attend the BNP Tennis tournament in Indian Wells and we found the quiet and solitude of the cabin a nice change to the busyness and heat of the desert. We found the kitchen well stocked with all the conveniences and pots and pans we needed. The living area is very comfortable and bright. The hot tub was a highlight and was ready to roll when we arrived late on our first evening. The one concern would be lighting to the front door to help with late night arrival. That is the one and only negative comment. Martha and her mom were extremely accommodating and made our stay very simple and stress free. We would readily recommend Idyllwild Vacation Cabins and Starlight seclusion.


I only give 4 stars because of a couple glitches- but what else to expect from a mountain cabin?!It was overall absolutely fantastic and adorable. I have already called my entire call list to recommend this little gem. It's as cute (though smaller- but hey- I live in la where we're all obnoxious and spoiled) as it looks in pictures. And I love the vhs player (with dvd) with labeled movies (I went for my one-year anniversary and watching "Beauty and the Beast" definitely won over any alternative- apologies to my man :)Martha (and her mom) were so helpful and accommodating. Thank you so much Martha!

Quaint, Relaxing Getaway

We had a great time. The cabin was clean, had all we could have wanted. Everything, including the all too crucial hot tub, was prepped and waiting for our arrival.

Great time

Very nice cabin, great for 2-3 people.Everything was as promised and Martha had it ready for us with the spa, lights and heat on. The only thing missing was a bundle of dry wood for the fireplace.We did not have any energy after the long drive to go out that night, so we had to wait 'till the next day.The kitchen is not big, but has pretty much everything, we had no trouble cooking the whole Thanksgiving dinner.It is very peaceful and relaxing, with beautiful night sky. We had wonderful time, and will definitely stay there again.

Peaceful, relaxing family getaway w/ excellent service & value.

My wife and I looked at all the other online rental companies and none of them compared to the value we found with Martha at After spending a few minutes on the phone with her, I could tell she takes great pride in her cabins and I knew her service would be exceptional. Our experience was even better than we expected when we stayed in Starlight Seclusion. The cabin was clean, very well maintained, and furnished for optimum comfort. Our daughters loved the main upstairs loft and we all slept very well. By the way, I don't usually rate something 5 stars across the board, but I can honestly say that our experience deserves 5 stars all the way. Thank you, Martha. We'll be back soon!

The most peaceful and relaxing vacation in a cabin ever!

Trisha and I just wanted to thank you for the great time in our Cabin rental this past weekend (Oct. 27 to Oct. 30). It was the most peaceful, relaxing, and fun time we've had in a very long time. I give 5 stars for every aspect of the trip and stay. No matter when or what I called you for during our time there you were always right there to assist us, thank you. We will most definitely be coming back to you personally for our next vacation rental. We Loved it so much that we didn't want to leave. I wish I could get away to Idyllwild every month! I have recommended your Cabins to my friends, family, and co-workers. Thank you so much Martha!! We will hopefully see you very soon.


Everything was perfect! The hot tub right outside our door was delightful, the location of the cabin was terrific. The cabin was clean some of the kitchen items were dusty. The bed we slept in was uncomfortable and the shower was tiny. Our stay overall, was truly great! Our dog loved every minute of it!!

Beautiful property but poorly kept

The cabin was exactly as pictured on the website - secluded, lovely views, hot tub, fireplace, and so on. However, it was very buggy and dusty. There were cobwebs on the lamps, on the wood by the fire, on the windows, in the shower, on both sides of the bathroom mirror, and so on in that fashion. Some sort of inch-long insect (earwigs?) dive-bombed us from the rafters every half hour or so, and there were plenty of spiders wandering around to keep the earwigs company. Indelible memory: the matched set of spiders waiting for us on the bathroom towels. I was surprised the management company was willing to rent a property in that condition. Good points: the kitchen and bedroom were clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and the location was quiet and peaceful. It's really a beautiful cabin.Surprised to find there was no parking.

Dear Andrea Thank you so much for your feedback. After you and I spoke the morning you checked out, I personally visited the cabin. I realized that the initial clean of the cabin had not included the ceilings and rafters. The customer is always right and so upon your departure the cleaning staff embarked on a two day deep clean. All the ceilings and rafters were reached with ladders and wiped and cleaned. We removed the wood by the fireplace area and all bedding was removed and laundered. We also moved furniture so as to make sure the cabin was cleaned properly.We've had 3 other guests since and no more spiders. It is a great cabin and it is wonderful location as you mentioned. Please come revisit Starlight Seclusion. We care about your feedback here at Idyllwild Vacation Cabins so we've made sure that all the issues you mentioned were addressed . The cabin looks great ! Stay a night for free and check it out, because every vacation should be a great experience.sincerelyIdyllwild Vacation CabinsMartha Sanchez
