Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
- english, spanish
Reside at the Beach, but the Soul is in the Mountains. Mammoth is a big part of our lives. We love skiing/snowboarding and climbing/hiking. My husband has worked as a part time as a ski instructor and I a snowboard instructor for the mountain for many years. We bought the condo when our first child was born, realizing that we could no longer do hotels with a child in tow. Eventually our second daughter came along, so the use of a kitchen has been invaluable over the last 23 years. I spend as much time in Mammoth as I possibly can and love every season in the Sierras. Our careers keep us in San Clemente, but the kids have been raised with Mammoth as a big part of their lives.
Susan purchased this Condo in 1996
Why Susan chose Mammoth Lakes
Over twenty-four years ago, before marriage and kids... I rented a condo in Mountain Shadows for a ski trip with friends and was hooked. I loved the location, the feel of the unit, the jacuzzi and the PRICE! The central location in town at the lower elevation is ideal for us. When our children were young they slept better and were more comfortable in the lower altitude. No matter how bad a storm/blizzard can get I can always drive to the condo from Orange County, rarely having to stop and put chains on. This is very important to me as I make the drive alone several times per season. The same goes for when I leave town to drive back to the south land. There are no steep icy roads to deal with. The access road is always plowed as it is the main road through town. Once I arrive I do not need my car as the location is on the shuttle lines and walking distance to the grocery store, restaurants, etc.
What makes this Condo unique
To me, the Mammoth area is paradise. When I am here, I want my living space to be as nice and special as Mammoth feels to me. Therefore, the condo is furnished beautifully with upscale local art, lighting etc. The kitchen and bathroom remodel is clean and up to date. The condo is terrific for a couple wanting a romantic getaway, friends who prefer an ambient, hip, yet affordable 'pad' or for a family who enjoy spending cozy warm evenings indoors after a day of skiing/snowboarding or hiking/fishing/mountainbiking. Directly across the hall our identical condo will be available to rent on the website as well, in the event you have a larger group.

Always an enjoyable stay
I like coming back to stay here. I wish the Jacuzzi was open earlier but that is the management. It is an easy stay.
A great place overall
A convenient location, about 5 minute walk to the red line shuttle, fewer than 10 to Vons, restaurants, carryouts all around. Clean, has everything you need for cooking, plus you get a full size locker, so that you don't need to haul your gear around daily.
1st timer to Mammoth
We completely enjoyed our stay here! the proximity to the slopes, restaurants, and being able to leave our ski equipment at the lodge was huge! We will definitely be booking again. The place was clean, really comfortable and peaceful.
Everything was great as expected. Would definitely stay there again
Condo with soul
We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. It's right in the village, close to stores, restaurants, bus stop, but it's amazingly quiet. It's such a cliche, but it's absolutely true - this condo has a "home away from home" feel. The bed is very, very comfortable with literally the best pillows I've ever slept on. Everything here is done with great care, the condo is full of thoughtful details. Bed linens, throw blankets, dishes, etc. - everything is high quality, modern pebble shower floor, Netflix, cable TV - really, you can not wish for a better place. Our group consisted of 4 people (2 adults + 2 kids), and there was not much space to store our suitcases/backpacks, but there was plenty of room to move around, play, etc. Susan is a great communicator, she responds on texts/emails very quickly and answers all questions right away. Highly recommend!
