Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to our Sun Valley home! The house features a reverse floor plan to maximize high ceilings, exposed beams and beautiful mountain views upstairs in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The lower level houses three bedrooms, rec room, bonus room, laundry, and heated garage. The house wraps around an outdoor patio which hosts a five man hot tub and a spectacular outdoor fireplace.

Our house is ideally located in a nice neighborhood near the Wood River, and at the base of Baldy between River Run and Warm Springs. The free shuttle service is a 200 yard walk and downtown Ketchum is a half mile away. Nearby there is a public trail leading through an aspen grove to the Wood River. Guy Cole Skateboard Park, paved walking and bike paths, and the Wood River YMCA are all within a 5 minute walk.

The house was designed by local architect Mark Pynn and built by Rick Walsworth, and won the 2012 Idaho AIA award for 'best use of wood'.

This place is fantastic! Lots of room to accommodate guests and gear. Beautiful design - very comfortable. Nice walk into town. House was stocked with the essentials too. Would love to stay again.

Pretty incredible

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several VRBO rentals and this house was worth the nightly rate. Radiant heat and seasoned firewood with gas assisted fire places. Our kids loved the hot tub and bunk room. Would definitely stay here again. Wonderful house. Owner also helped me track down some items I left behind and mail them to me - he was very accommodating! Thank you!

Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our kids and my sister and her 2 kids. We loved the location and how close we were to everything. We rode our bikes everywhere. The home fit 8 people comfortably. My only draw backs were the TV's down stairs weren't working at all and the TV upstairs kept cutting out on certain channels but it could have been the operators of the TV's ... and the Aspen trees out front covered my car in sap. We loved all the outdoor space 4 separate outdoor sitting areas, hot tub, and fire place. We had a lot of fun here!

What a phenomenal place for us and our siblings to stay the week leading up to our wedding! Perfect location. Quiet neighborhood. Beautiful house. We used all 3 of the decks to relax and play games all week. We can't wait to come back again!!!

Disappoineted

  • 1 of 5

I am puzzled as to why there are so many good ratings for this house. We stayed at a different house the summer before in Ketchum at a much less cost and we really enjoyed that house.

Here are some of the issues we found with this house:

1. It was not clean. There were skid marks all over the stairs, the balconies had lots of leaves and other trash, the hot tub area was dirty and nothing like the nice pictures on the web site. We did not use the hot tub.

2. The A/C did not work. During the day the interior of the house was over 80 degrees. When we called the manager in charge, she acted as though it is not a big deal and suggested that we open all windows. Of course that didn't work when the outside temperature was 85 degrees.

3. The bed mattresses were all too old. We had a hard time sleeping on them.

4. The towels in the bathrooms were old and had stains on them.

5. The kitchen had couple of bowels that were broken and were glued together. This is unsafe. The owner should just throw these dishes away.

Overall, we found this house to be unsatisfactory, especially for such a high price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your constructive feedback. We are so sorry that your experience was not positive! You make some good points that we can learn from to improve for future guests. Just a couple of clarifying points I will make. The house does not have air conditioning, and is not advertised as having AC. We do find that temperatures can be maintained at a reasonable level through "heat management" strategies (e.g. upstairs sliders open at night, and closed during the day). The hot tub is serviced weekly by a local spa company, and they are available on an on call basis to shock or change out the water (as explained in our welcome document). We have an outstanding housecleaner, and we take great pride in the condition of the interior of the house. It is true that we put less attention to the exterior deck and patio cleanliness, which is a good learning for us. The yard is maintained bi-weekly by a local landscaping company. We will look into the broken bowl in the kitchen. Our intention certainly is to have a fully stocked and functional kitchen. Regarding the beds, the master and guest beds are all fairly new. The kids bunk room is admittedly not the most comfortable for adult sleepers (they are kids bunks). We do appreciate your feedback, and will certainly do what we can to learn and improve.
