LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION So, What does that mean???

This home is in the C E N T E R of the Valley.

This comfortable 5 bedroom, 4 bath, with private hot tub overlooking world-class Elkhorn Golf Course has breathtaking mountain views, long daytime sun, and star-filled nights! It has everything you could possibly need for an fun-filled & enjoyable vacation! Approx.Every 30 minutes, MOUNTAIN RIDE free bus transportation to slopes/town 100 yards out front door!

About Anne & Tom Tawoda

We were both born and raised in the Midwest, married in 1981 and moved to Idaho to start our lives together. Both our children were born in Idaho. Both of our children have since taken jobs out West. In the last year, we have now found our way back to Idaho once again!

Anne & Tom Tawoda purchased this house in 1987

Why Anne & Tom Tawoda chose Sun Valley

This property is P R I M E location. C E N T E R of the Valley With the Sun Valley walk/bike/jogging trails out front and the world-class Elkhorn golf course out back, and both the Baldy and Dollar ski mountains just down the road, it is ideally located....

What makes this house unique

The night time is extremely special out back. Whether it be watching the elk coming down the mountain in the evening or watching the stars of the milky-way and shooting stars from the warmth and comfort of the private spa--it doesn't get better....

A Great Summer Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent the entire month of June 08 in this lovely home. There were 4 adults and enough space including private baths for all of us. Two grandsons were very happy with the large "bunk room" and having 2 masters on the first floor was perfect for some older adults who visited for several nights. Both the owner and the property manager were very responsive to what few problems we encountered and the weekly house keeper did an excellent job. It was a bit chilly the first couple of weeks, but the last two weeks of June were absolutely wonderful - and there is plenty of deck to enjoy the wonderful evenings, bar-b-q and the fox that visits almost every night. All in all we would highly recommend this home for a wonderful summer get away.

All Season Resort Style Home

  • 5 of 5

Believe a book by its cover concerning the photos presented for this rental. The property served as the perfect accommodations for myself and my family during the Sun Valley Film Festival and I could foresee renting out the space again during any season. This home has it all from the hotub, golf course, 5 minute drive to either the Sun Valley Lodge or Main Street. The design and layout of the house is very unique and if needed, it could really house a lot more people. Beds for 14 and couch space and pullouts for an additional 4, not to mention the amount of space for air mattresses.

The owners were very accommodating and provided use of the two car garages with garage openers, as well as access to their bustling DVD collection and Sirius Satellite Radio that can even be heard on the outdoor patio speakers near the hottub. The site is also situated on one of the holes of the golf course that has wild animals feeding from the nearby mountains as well as paved trails for the runners or biking fans out there.

Everything about this place was just perfect and I could not say enough about how wonderful the experience was. It was truly a home away from home.

Great House! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four couples stayed for a week at this home. It was the perfect size for eight people with plenty of room to hang out, watch TV, cook, hot tub and play games after a day of skiing on the mountain or snow shoeing out the back door. The bedrooms each have their own TV and the beds are comfortable. Plenty of linens were provided. It is a unique home that is just a few minutes from downtown Ketchum, Dollar Mountain and the River Run lift. We loved seeing the elk each morning! We would highly recommend staying here and will definitely stay again.

The Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house to celebrate my mom's birthday which included nine adults and four children. It was so perfect and never felt cramped at all. The kids loved all the little hiding spots and we loved the space and the hot tub. Plus, there was everything you needed to cook for such a large group of people. We even did some grilling on the patio - such a beautiful location. We plan on going back to enjoy the summer time activities!

Owner's Response: We are glad that you found the home accommodating, comfortable, and complete for your needs. We welcome your return this Summer which we think you will find equal or more...... with Elkhorn amenities (2 Olympic pools, spas, 12 tennis courts, golf, etc.), biking, hiking, climbing, rafting, sight-seeing, etc. The best is yet to come!

Another Great Visit!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this wonderful house many times with friends and family members and have always enjoyed the comfortable accommodations! During each visit we have noted upgrades but now it looks like a new house with its freshly painted exterior. We look forward to our next visit!

Great Summer Get-away Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 adult friends, all experienced travelers, had a great stay at this home. The living spaces accommodated us well, with plenty of room to gather together or be off doing something in smaller groups. The deck and spa overlooking the golf course was the perfect antidote for any of the days’ activities. The location is very convenient with Ketchum restaurants and Sun Valley Resort 5 minutes in either direction. Lots of activities are available and accessible. Most importantly, the owners are helpful and responsive. Everything you need is already there. We were very comfortable and would recommend this home to others.
