Fulfills promises, a value.

  • 3 of 5

This was not a luxury condo, but a well-executed 3-star stay. The condo was clean and well-furnished, tastefully done. Everything worked properly. The master bed was very comfortable. The unit was a bit small for us, but the layout was pleasant and efficient, and it was priced accordingly. Wireless was good. TV had plenty of channels, but the one in the Master Bedroom is way too small. About the size of a good laptop screen.

The setting in the Mountains was fantastic. The neighborhood is pleasant for walking, except when construction was being done. The deck was great, but close proximity to other decks. We prefer more privacy.

All instructions were clear and simple to follow. Check in and check out were smooth and easy. We thought some of the check out rules were more than what we were used to: 1. Bag up the trash and take it to the dumpster. 2. Run the dishwasher/clean all dishes (that's typical) and be sure they are placed back in the cabinets (that's not).

All in all, an excellent value for the money.

Amazing views and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our experience at this condo. Great accommodations and views. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

It does have two bedrooms, one with a king bed the other with twin beds. It was quiet, conventionally located to lots of things to do and stores for groceries, etc...

Wonderful location in the mountains.

Very nice condo, well equipped and clean. I've rented many vacation places and this was one of the best. It is necessary to have a motor vehicle.

Great stay in a beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in many different condos in Echota on the Ridge and Chalakee, and still this unit exceeded expectations. The Bledsoe's home was impeccably clean and was definitely well-stocked. These owners don't skimp on maintenance or the little things that make stays that much more special. Highly recommend this property!
