Great space and outstanding owner

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a family of 5 for a week of skiing at Alta/Snowbird. The unit was clean, spacious and well maintained. Pretty much as close as you can get to Alta/Snowbird without staying on the mountain. The unit is large and had everything we needed for the family .. fully stocked kitchen, great bedding, and fast internet. Josh was an excellent host .. we had a some heavy duty snow while we were there and the direct TV satellite was challenged. Josh came over three times during out stay to clean off the dish. I would definitely stay here again with my family

Great, big house for a big group! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Josh's 5 bedroom condo was AWESOME. We were a group of 5 with some additional friends in town who were staying close by (and who were at the house for family dinners, daytime hangs, etc).

Pros: you can not beat the location. 15 minute drive up the mountain to Alta & Snowbird (can't be closer unless staying at the actual resorts), and even better - a 5 minute drive to Sandy (supermarkets, walgreens, cheap ski rentals, restaurants, etc), and 25 minutes to central Salt Lake City. Incredible. Also - bed count was amazing, house could have easily slept like 16 people. The open floor plan of the living room, kitchen, and dining room was great for our large group, and the beautiful mountain views were an amazing addition! Josh, our host, was VERY great with communication and was available via text and phone call whenever we needed him. The kitchen, while not the star of any upcoming HG shows, is fully stocked with everything we needed for cooking big family meals! Also really appreciate the laundry, dishwasher, and DVD player/TV. Very helpful all around. OMG AND THE SAUNA! Perfect after a full day of skiing.

Some cons (which definitely did not affect how much we freaking loved this place, but for your information): There are four queen size beds in the two upstairs bedrooms, but no bathrooms up there. And only one half bath on the main floor. It was fine since we had two guys upstairs who didn't mind waiting to shower downstairs, but I would be weary with a group of 12 to only have two full baths, which can only be entered from the downstairs bedrooms. Another con is that the place isn't updated or overly decorated. Again - not an issue for our group, but just to know. The pictures show all :)

Overall - a 10/10. The cons are just warnings for groups who may need more bathrooms, but we really really loved this place and its location. Can't wait to return next year!

Great location, yet needs updating

  • 3 of 5

First, Josh, was extremely helpful and available to assist and answer questions at all times. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with dishes, pots & pans, glasses, etc. The location is just down the hill from Alta and Snowbird and a quick drive to the other nearby ski areas. The house and furnishings need to be updated. The seating area could use another sofa and the others need to be replaced. The sauna was a BIG hit and a very nice touch.

Best Alta snowbird condos around

  • 5 of 5

The condo location is unbeatable! It is fully equipped with every convenience. It is impeccably clean, very spacious and perfect for families with kids. My wife and I stayed with our 3 kids and had plenty of room for everyone. The best part of our stay was the owner who loves kids. He could not have been more welcoming or gracious to ours. The kids felt like they were staying at a relative's place. The owner assisted us with everything from ski equipment rentals to discount lift tickets and restaurant recommendations. We loved it so much we already booked another stay for March.

Ski: Breathtaking Views:

This amazing rental home offers city views of Salt Lake Valley to the west and south and the slopes of the Wasatch to the north and east. Whether you are watching the sunset or looking at the snow fall on the landscape, this rental vacation home offers convenience, comfort and luxury.

Convenient Access to the Ski Slope:

Due to all the amazing powder that Alta and Snowbird ski resorts offer during winter, the Salt Lake County Sheriff closes Little Cottonwood Canyon for avalanche control work when necessary in the morning just prior to the resorts opening. The closure takes place 1 mile west of the rental condominium. The proximity of the condo provides the ability to be ahead of all the traffic that is waiting at the road block when the canyon opens for uphill traffic. You can expect to be up the hill and on the slopes much faster than the majority of the skiers commuting from other areas of the city.
