HOME HIGHLIGHTS
Sparkling clean17 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.
Self check-inEasily check yourself in with the lockbox.
Great check-in experience100% 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.
