Surrounded by California Black Oaks and Pine trees
Everything You Need to Know About This Retreat
We have named this mountain home of ours “Moon Bears Retreat”, in the honor of two moon bear cubs, Anh and Em, we adopted earlier this year. They were rescued on July 18, 2020 by Animal Asia. We have pledged to support them for the duration of their lives. There are only 25,000 of these moon bears left, and Animal Asia is dedicated to rescue and rehabilitate as many of these moon bears as they can. To support their effort, we have pledged to donate a portion of our annual earnings from Moon Bears Retreat to Animal Asia. We know this is a drop in the bucket, but did want to stand in solidarity with Rickey Gervais, Judy Dench and others. See “Ricky Gervais adopts Peace by Piece bear”. Also see “Help a bear Ricky Gervais”.
We live in Los Angeles, with two kids, two dogs and high pressure jobs. We wanted a place to retreat into, away from the noise, chaos, and the demands of daily life. To create such a space, we have lovingly decorated and furnished this mountain home of ours with luxurious and beautiful fabrics, fixtures and furnitures from Pottery Barn, West Elm, Marriott & others. The goal was to be simple, clean, inviting, warm, cozy and peaceful. A space where we can live every moment! We have tried to do our best, and only hope that you would agree.
We are on a (fenced) corner lot surrounded by California Black Oaks and Pine trees. We recently planted few baby Leyland Cypress trees as well, that will provide ultimate evergreen privacy over time, as they grow up. Being on a corner lot, we are open on three sides, providing wide open airspaces and privacy just as it is. If you are traveling with (well mannered, house broken) dogs, you may let them have free access our fenced back yard. Please be sure to clean them up before letting them back into the house. We know how difficult it is to travel without them. So while we allow dogs in our home, please treat our home like you would yours.
In our backyard, you will find a brand new 8-person hot tub, with over 56 jets to help you relax after a day’s hiking and skiing. We take great care in keeping it clean, and sanitized. Please ensure that you leave it just the way you found it.
Inside the house, besides the clean and modern decor, you will find FREE access to Netflix, HBO Max, Disney Plus, Hulu & ESPN. Yes, you read that right. These subscriptions are prepaid for your enjoyment. You may also want to help yourself to a glass of wine from the bar cart at no charge to you.
If bringing pets (dogs only), it is $35 per pet, per stay, to accommodate our cleaning crew. Thank you! Please do ensure to keep the pets off our furnitures. And please do not leave them behind unattended. The city will penalize us on any noise complaints, and we will be forced to charge you for the same. Be respectful to our neighbors and the local laws.
