Why Anne & Tom Tawoda chose Central Idaho

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....

Perfect house for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 (6 adults/4 kids) stayed July 2017. The house was perfect for our family reunion. Adults had private rooms. 2 kid rooms were perfect for the 4 kids. Deck and hot tub was our favorite evening hangout. Added bonus were the 3 adult bikes and badminton net. Well priced and air-conditioning was key for that time of year. Owner was super helpful and checked on us all week. Thank you Anne!

Beautifully located on the golf course with a scenic mountain view.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our large family. It is a perfect location, only 5 - 10 minutes to Ketchum. The house was well equipped, having everything we needed and it was very comfortable. The jacuzzi on the deck was awesome for the cool starry nights!

Quirky Design on the golf course in Elkhorn, Ketchum-Sun Valley

  • 3 of 5

Let's just say the layout and function of this "ski pad" are quirky and perhaps quite usable for young skiers in the winter, especially if you spend all day on the mountain skiing and come home late in the afternoon. The layout of the west bedrooms and lack of trees in the west make the use of the deck limited in the summer (scorching sun), and there are no umbrellas or trees to hide under. Landscaping is minimalist. In the late morning and afternoon the west facing bedrooms and house are pounded by the sun. The east facing part of the home is on busy Elkhorn road, which lacks the beautiful views from the home and the road noise moderate when the windows are open. Upstairs its necessary to use blinds to keep the heat from driving you out of the largest bedroom in the day, and only one of the four windows opens. The supplied fans help late in the day. Downstairs its the same .. during the day you must close the blinds to keep the temperature reasonable and the furniture from direct sun exposures. That said, the windows and vistas are large and impressive early morning and evening on the west side. Opening windows on the east side exposes you to road noise. We visited in July during a hot spell so we were fortunate to out of the home most days midday, and home in the mornings/later evenings. The kitchen has only one exhaust fan, on the stovetop. Its a down-draft device which doesn't handle all the cooking odors from rising all the way to the roof on the top floors. If you cook every day/night, this may not be place for you unless you can open windows. That all said, the owners and property managers do a good job of keeping the place in excellent condition. It was turned over to us as advertised, in good working order. Directions in the home are simply stated and easy to use even for the more detailed technology tools. Access to Elkhorn amenities like the swimming pool, putt-putt 18 hole course, tennis courts, reduced green fees and proximity to Ketchum and Sun Valley company lodges and features is within a 5 minute drive in either direction. The bike path is fantastic for walking and riding and connects everywhere. The large parking area in front of the home makes getting off of and on to the Elkhorn road easy and safe, and the garage and home toys are large and fun. Caveat for young children and seniors- lots of stairs and levels in this home. We had a blast, and the price was very reasonable. Thank you to our hosts, we love Ketchum!

Owner's Response: The home has a large capacity central air conditioning system. It can keep the home at 68 degrees after the thermostat has been set. Closing the window blinds and adjusting the downstairs vents will allow more even distribution of cooling to occur. -We will make a note in the "Understanding the Home" instructions that is provided to the customer to close the window blinds when the sun is hot & adjust the main floor vents. Minimalist landscaping on the golf course is by design as so to take advantage of the great Mountain Vistas and golf course views. When the sun sets behind Elkhorn mountain the temperature will drop 15 degrees in minutes making for a great evening outside. As for stairs and any seniors, the two en suites on the first floor with no steps required have been enjoyed by many seniors over the years. Thanks again for the feedback.
