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.

Wonderful home in great location

  • 5 of 5

Anne and Tom's home was the perfect place for our family to celebrate our parents 65th wedding anniversary. It is large enough to accommodate 10 people comfortably with lovely outdoor deck space. We cooked our meals in the house and we were able to fit everyone around the dining room table and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook. Anne was wonderful about answering all my questions promptly and is a great VRBO host. We enjoyed the hot tub each morning with our coffee and a nice view of the golf course and surrounding hills. Many of us enjoyed biking to Ketchum and Sun Valley from the house. It is a quiet location and I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking for a large, comfortable home.

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your home! Everything was clean and user friendly. We had our 5 children and their little individual families so everyone had their own room which was very nice. Beautiful location right on the golf course and close to the pool. We were a little early for regular season so only one pool was open and the buses weren't going yet, but we used the walking path a lot and had our own cars anyway. Just something to know - the pool doesn't let you use floatation devices of any kind, including water wings for little ones, so save some space and don't bother packing those. The fridge in the garage was very nice - we filled it with sodas and water. Thanks again for letting us use your home. Can't think of anything negative to say.

Eight on a Ten Point Scale

  • 4 of 5

With the exception of the kitchen appliances (somewhat dated, missing second oven and inoperable dishwasher) and somewhat deceptive photos, the property was clean with good quality linens and towels and accoutrements. Communications with and responsiveness of the owner were excellent.

Owner's Response: First of all--thank you for your feedback. It is always helpful for us as owners to clarify "inoperable or missing equipment". The missing oven was due to a mishap that occurred only days prior when the kitchen new floor installer's nail gun misfired and blew out the entire lower oven. Naturally, we ordered a new double oven immediately. With our installation scheduled for the next week, we had to cover the lower missing oven. The new dish washer is quite operable. The issue here was that the silverware racks must be placed in such a way as to fully close the dishwasher door. The dishwasher will not operate unless it is fully closed. Within 30 minutes of a discussion with the guest, our maintenance person arrived and adjusted the silverware racks. None of our prior or subsequent have had any difficulty operating this dishwasher. As for the photos, they were taken on a cell phone unedited. If anything they don't include the new hardwood floors, new back deck, new front powder-room, and new exterior paint color. :)
