THE VILLAGE MONACHE #614 - MODERN, LUXURIOUS, PEACEFUL & CONVENIENT

Mammoth Lakes Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This immaculate studio unit is on the sixth floor of The Monache in The Village At Mammoth. The unit is centrally located for both your winter and summer activities. Beautifully decorated, it gives a new meaning to the term 'mountain elegance'. The unit includes a fully equipped efficiency kitchen with granite counters.

The Monache #614 will make you feel right at home. With sleeping for 2 comfortably (2 adults + 2 children with the sleeper sofa), this unit has been designed to easily accommodate 1 small family. Relax in the evenings with your whole group around the fireplace and a 32” LCD flat screen TV or take part in the numerous amenities at the Monache including the Whitebark Restaurant & Bar, or the other recreational facilities that are available.

The suite is beautifully decorated to give you a homey feeling. It features a king size bed, flat screen TV & DVD player both with remotes, furniture including a full dresser and night stands, wardrobe closet with plenty of hangers, and a spectacular bathroom that would please anyone's taste.

The Monache is part of The Village which features shops and restaurants to make your stay very comfortable. Just take the elevator down to the lower lobby and walk outside to The Village Plaza where you can experience the wide variety of shops, restaurants, art galleries, Starbuck’s coffee, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, boutiques, bars and Restaurants. The varieties of restaurants include American, Japanese, French, BBQ, Mexican and Italian food.

To add to your convenience, The Village is the center of all the free transportation in Mammoth. You can take a bus to all ski lodges as well as most other properties in town or walk across the plaza to the gondola which takes you to Canyon Lodge for free where you can purchase your lift tickets, rentals and any other necessities. The Village features a new skiback trail which allows you to ski back to your condo. With all these features and the heated underground parking, you never need to take your vehicle anywhere.

With this unit, you will get service. Most rentals on VRBO do not provide local check-in and check-out. Our local representative is Mammoth Front Desk and they will assist you with check-in, check-out, maid service, property issues, etc. When you rent this unit, you will get full service from Mammoth Front Desk for all amenities offered by them.

THIS IS A HIGH END RENTAL UNIT AT A MODEST PRICE. THERE ARE BARGAIN BASEMENT PRICES WHEN RENTALS ARE SCARCE WHICH IS TYPICALLY MIDWEEK AND TOWARDS THE END OF SEASON, HOWEVER, RENTALS ON WEEKENDS, HOLIDAYS AND PRIME SEASON ARE AT MARKET VALUE.

UNITS LOCATED NEAR THE VILLAGE ARE NOT THE SAME AS BEING IN THE VILLAGE. Many units on VRBO and other sites charge less money and then claim to be steps away from or in The Village when in fact they are one block to 3 miles away. If you have ever walked anywhere in Mammoth during poor weather conditions, you know that a very short walk will seem like it takes forever. When you are near The Village, you can have an interminable walk during a winter snow storm in which you will pray for your survival long enough to reach The Village and then cringe at the thought of walking back. The extra cost of being in The Village is well worth the convenience.

Please see my other VRBO listing #277774 for a 2 bed / 2 bath unit that sleeps up to 8 people at The Village.

Please see my other VRBO listing #295202 for a 3 bed / 2 bath unit that sleeps up to 11 people at Solstice.

Please see my other VRBO listing #295742 for a 3 bed + loft / 2 bath unit that sleeps up to 15 people at Solstice.

Please contact me regarding my 3 bedroom 3000 sq ft unit at the 8050 Club. This unit is a $3M masterpiece and unlike anything else in Mammoth! It is equivalent to the high rollers suite at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

We are licensed under Business Tax Certificate #6091 with The Town of Mammoth Lakes and we are required to collect Transient Occupancy Tax (bed tax) for all rentals.

Born in 1953, I was always fascinated with skiing which I finally learned in 1975. During my many trips to Mammoth, I fell in love with the area and vowed to own my own place there some day when I could afford it. My dream eventually came true. As a youngster, I was fascinated with electronics and studied it all the time. The hobby was expensive so I got my first job at age 14 washing dishes to support my hobby. Soon thereafter, I moved up to a wholesale bakery where I worked 20-30 hours per week to support my hobby while going to school full time. Upon graduation from high school, I got my first job in the electronics industry installing and repairing car telephones. This was in the days long before cellular telephones when the car phone took up most of the trunk of the car and cost thousands of dollars. Soon thereafter, I started working on two way radios where I worked on communications systems for the US Marshall, police departments and thousands of businesses. At age 21, I started my own company selling and servicing two-way radios. To this day, I am still running the same operation and love what I do. The only unfortunate aspect is that I have not figured out how to do it in Mammoth and make enough money to live in Mammoth full time.

Mark purchased this condo in 2007

I have always loved the mountains and I fell in love with Mammoth in the late 70's when I went on many ski trips to Mammoth with my ski club. The Monache at Village At Mammoth was a new development which promised to be the center of attraction for the town. I thought that would be perfect for me and my family and especially as my young kids grow up. The convenience of The Village to the town transportation, the shops and restaurants within walking distance and the proximity to The Village gondola were key to my decision to purchase the unit.

When skiing at Mammoth, The Village is the ultimate in convenience. With a short free ride on the gondola, you arrive at Canyon Lodge. With the new ski back trail, you can now ski back to your condo from Chair 4 and Chair 7 at Canyon Lodge. Unfortunately, Canyon Lodge is not open all year so the gondola is not always running. However, the free bus ride to the main lodge makes skiing far more enjoyable as I do not have to hassle with driving and parking. The convenience of the restaurants make it easy to eat out or we can cook in the efficiency kitchen in our unit. The convenience of The Monache at The Village is unsurpassed. No other location in Mammoth has all the amenities that you get at The Village. The Monache at The Village rental units are priced higher than most other rentals in town, but it is the only property in Mammoth where you get all the conveniences that are available at The Monache at The Village. Some VRBO listings that claim to be in The Village are blocks away. Others are across town and nowhere near The Village. Each of these above mentioned properties that are falsely claiming to be at The Village are advertising low rates that cannot be duplicated at The Monache. Rentals for a unit truly located in The Village will be higher priced than an identical unit (if there is one) just a block away. In bad weather, a 2 minute walk to The Village seem to take forever!!!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
I loved this condo. You have all the amenities of The Westin, underground parking, right next door to the Village. The owner was responsive and helpful. The management company was great. I've rented many condos in Mammoth before (I saw another review which clearly thought they were in a hotel, not a condo - this is a condo - a small one, but a condo) and this definitely blurred the lines between full service hotel and condo. Maid service came after the second day. The owner stocks the small, but very helpful kitchen with all the essentials and lots of nice treats. The quality of the towels and bedding were excellent. The fireplace in the room with a timer was wonderful - went to sleep each night with the glow of the fire. Perfect for a romantic getaway and a nice view of the trees from the window. The only downside was no wi-fi (I went across the street to Starbucks when I needed it) and spotty cell reception.

DECEPTIVE LISTING - NEVER RETURNING OR DEALING WITH MAMMOTH FRONT DESK AGAIN.

  • 2 of 5
Although the unit is technically IN the Westin building, it is not affiliated with the hotel at all. In fact, if you decide to rent this unit, the Westin employees wont even give you the time of day. You WILL NOT have access to room service or maid service. You cannot even call the front desk if there is a problem. No towels are replaced or refreshed....well wait, one of the nights someone dropped off a clear trash bag full of clean towels outside our door, thanks. I'll just fold one into a pretty towel swan and place it on my pillow myself.

All of this was a HUGE surprise to us after we checked in with our 1 year old baby and tried to get something delivered to our room. Very upsetting because you don't realize this by looking at the VRBO add, in fact you get the opposite impression because the VRBO add states:

"When you rent this unit you will get full service from Mammoth Front Desk for all amenities offered by them AND THE RESORT."

Secondly, there was NO DVD player in the room, even though the VRBO add states that there is a DVD player.

This brings me to the next frustrating disappointment. Since the unit is not under Westin, (try to mention that your staying in this particular room and they look the other way) there is a third party management company that "runs" the unit called Mammoth Front Desk. So if you need ANYTHING you have to call them and they pretty much tell you to call the owner which I don't understand because the owner is paying them to manage the place.

For example,
On our drive up my wife decided to call them and ask how we will be able to order room service if we are not registered with the hotel and they said " we aren't sure, nobody really asks us that questions," What? nobody asks if you can order room service....? they had to call the owner and call us back and told us we have to walk down stairs and order the food or "if you tell them you will pay with cash maybe they will come up..." what kind of operation is this...?

When we told Mammoth Front Desk that we were suppose to have a DVD player they said they don't really deal with calls like that and we have to call the owner, who said he can bring one by in one and a half hours. Awesome, we'll just sit around and wait for you...

AND there is NO internet, even though there is a placard in the room that tells you there is.
Lastly, we requested a late checkout (2pm), the owner entered our room unannounced at 12:00. Clearly the managment company did communicated this to him

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time in this studio at what must be Mammoth's nicest and best located hotel/condo - excellent condition, nice furnishings, great amenities (hot tub, pool, laundry room), ideal location with 2 minute walk to gondola and good restaurants in The Village (no need for a car as I flew in). Altogether a great stay.

GREAT ROOM & CONVIENENT LOCATION

Great room & convienent location
  • 5 of 5
This was my first time using VRBO and our experience was great! The pictures of this condo are accurate. The condo was spacious, clean, lots of upgrades and stocked with plenty of kitchen supplies. The condo was a first-class place. Check-in was easy, pool & jacuzzi were wonderful, gym is nice and big and parking was provided. Small perks as well, like the wonderful coffee in the room made our stay even more relaxing. The location of the condo is right next to the Village and is perfect for those hitting the mountain hard. I loved this place and have recommended it to my mother! We are definetly headed back!!

IN THE HEART OF THE VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to Mammoth Lakes and my first time using VRBO.
I thought the Westin Monache in the village was wonderful. It is in walking
distance to everything. The room was very clean, the facilities were amazing
and the staff was top notch. I couldn't have found a better place for the price.
I would definitely stay there again.
