Nice PLace and Nice Area

My wife and I recently stayed at this condo and it was everything we expected. One of the nicer homes we have rented through VRBO. It's located halfway between Kimball Junction, where you exit I-80, and Park City. There are grocery stores and restaurants in both locations (there is a Whole Foods and WalMart in KJ), so it is equally convenient to either one. We also found it to be conveniently located overall, as we drove into SLC several times, and out to Heber City and Sundance Resort as well. The condo itself is very nicely appointed and was clean and ready to go when we got there. We had a minor issue with the hot tub but it was addressed immediately by the house manager. Otherwise, it was quite comfortable and the views out across the valley from the balcony are nice, too. There is a free local bus service we did not use.
I communicated with the owner, Grady, both by phone and email, and found him very friendly and helpful. As for food, we ate at Slopes in the Waldorf twice. They had a limited menu due to the off season, but the first night was fantastic. Second time not so much. We enjoyed take out from the Asian Bistro in KJ (large orders) and really liked the Back Door Deli for lunch in PC. We also had a great lunch at Sundance Resort south of Heber City.
Took guided tours of Temple Square and the LDS Conference Center and found them very interesting and impressive. Went back for a choir rehearsal the next evening and it was incredible. We highly recommend doing that. Did some local hiking in the area, as well as at Sundance and in north SLC near This is the Place State Park, and enjoyed that. Also went to the Natural History Museaum and found it interesting with lots of exhibits (including fulll size dinosaurs). If you go there, be sure to eat at Ruth's Diner a few miles up Emigration Canyon road. Excellent comfort food.
One thing I should mention - we arrived after hours on Saturday evening. When we went to Club LeSpri to check in, no one was there. A sign said to use the phone in the booth for "after hours" check in. However, when I pushed the "After Hours" button on the phone, all I got was a recording. I tried dialing zero - same thing. I finally dialed the "After Hoiurs Emergency" number and found out that is who you call. I am not in the habit of dialing "emergency" numbers to simply check in and told them the instructions need to be more explicit. Don't know if that has changed or not, but you should be aware of it.
