About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

We'd like to welcome you to Sun Valley! Our warm and inviting townhouse is located right on the bike path and is a 5-10 minute walk or ski to the River Run Gondola, lifts and downtown Ketchum. The Big Wood River, restaurants, art galleries and the movie theater are all just a short stroll away from our home.

With views of Baldy and within walking distance to all the activities Ketchum has to offer, you can't find a better location. The free in-town bus service also stops right in front of our complex if you prefer a ride into town or to the lifts.

Our family loves to travel and we always enjoy having a clean and comfortable place to stay during our adventures. With that in mind, we have provisioned our Ketchum home to be just that - a home for our guests to enjoy as if it was their own. With an abundance of amenities provided, our guests have everything they need for a relaxing vacation or for entertaining friends and family. Whether it is a backyard BBQ dinner party in the summer or a cozy movie night in front of the fireplace, our home is a place for our guests to enjoy a wonderful and well-deserved Sun Valley vacation!

The main level features a heated double garage with entry into a full laundry room. Proceed into the cozy den complete with 2 couches, a 37' HD TV and direct access to the private back patio.

A very well equipped kitchen - a cook's delight - is between the den and dining/living area. The kitchen is complete with dining service for 10, a blender, espresso maker, coffee maker, microwave, crock pot, rice cooker and all the pots, pans, platters, baking essentials and cookbooks you would need for a gourmet meal. A full selection of spices, olive oil, tea, hot chocolate, coffee, coffee filters as well as dish and dishwasher soap and laundry soap are provided for your convenience.

The dining room has seating for 8 and a breakfast bar with seating for 2. A convenient powder room is off the kitchen area. An inviting living room, with gas river rock fireplace, 42' HD TV/DVD/VCR & Ipod music system, 2 couches and views of Baldy completes the first floor level.

Upstairs you will find a master bedroom with King bed, walk-in closet, private bath with double vanity counter, jetted tub, tiled shower and private toilet. The master also has a private balcony with Baldy views.

The second bedroom has a Queen bed and lots of closet and dresser space. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds (which can be converted into a King), and generous closet and dresser storage.

These two bedrooms share a bathroom with single sink vanity and tiled shower/tub.

The private patio features a hot tub, propane BBQ and dining for 6. A large grass common area is adjacent for the kids to run around while you enjoy a soak in the hot tub!

Other amenities included: 2 adult mountain bikes, 5 kids bikes, 6 bike helmets, 2 tennis racquets, child's umbrella stroller, snowshoes, 2 picnic chairs, small picnic cooler, pack-n-play crib, toddler dining booster seat, free high speed Wi-Fi connection, ski/snowboard/boot storage in a heated garage, and best of all...WALK/SKI to the lifts!

We look forward to welcoming you to your 'home away from home'. We have provided every amenity you need for a relaxing and care-free vacation.

Looking for a beach/sun/tropical setting in Mexico instead? Check out our newest home in beautiful Los Barriles, Baja Mexico for windsurfing, kiting, fishing and best of all...relaxing on the beach. View details on our 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home at

We look forward to seeing you in Sun Valley!

About Michelle Sabina

This townhouse was purchased after selling our home in Hailey and moving to Hood River, OR. We wanted to keep our 'roots' in Sun Valley and loved our weekend getaways to our second home in Ketchum. In August, 2016, we moved back to Hailey and now look forward to meeting our guests and being available should you need anything during your stay. We have provisioned our townhouse to be as comfortable as our full-time home and hope you will feel the same warmth, joy and comfort as you do in your own house! Please make yourselves at home and enjoy all the wonders Sun Valley has to offer.

Michelle Sabina purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Michelle Sabina chose Ketchum

We love this location because you can ski to the lifts in less than 5 minutes, jump on the bikes and ride out to the new Golf/Nordic center or into town for shopping, a meal, a movie or a walk to the river with your kids to seek out fish and rocks to throw...all from our front door. No loading up the car with gear... just grab your skis or bikes and GO! You can't get more convenient than that.

What makes this townhome unique

We love being able to look up at the mountain from our living room and master bedroom. Walking/skiing to the lifts is about the best benefit you can get while staying in a ski town. Walking access to the bike path and river and downtown Ketchum are wonderful too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sabina Family,

What a wonderful visit to SV! Your home, once again, provided the perfect home base for our vacation. Everything was wonderful - beautiful - spectacular and so very, very comfortable. Thank you and have a wonderful year!

As always, we enjoyed our stay at the Sabana condo! We have now progressed from staying at the condo every October to having a girls’ weekend in August. We were ecstatic to be able to get the condo for the girls’ weekend. Thank you for the wonderful accommodations and relaxing stay!

Need to clearly state that animals have been allowed in house.

  • 3 of 5

We were given the impression that animals were not allowed yet when we got there the pillows and floor are covered in animal hair, other than that the place was clean and tidy and as advertised. The lady was most pleasant to deal with and very considerate, would highly recommend for those that like living indoors with animals and don't have allergies.

Owner's Response: We are deeply sorry for the allergic reaction our guest's child experienced while staying at our home. Had we known of the sensitivity to animals, we certainly would have referred these guests to another property more appropriate to their needs. While we do have a no pet policy, we have made certain exceptions for a select few of our guests who return on a regular basis. Our home always has an intensive deep cleaning after such stays and in our 16 years of welcoming families to our home to enjoy Sun Valley, we have never received a complaint. But we also appreciate the feedback and will make a note on our listing details accordingly. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Andrew, Thank you so much for your positive and gracious review of your stay at our Ketchum townhome. We were thrilled to welcome you and your team of athletes for the 2018 Alpine Nationals, hosted in Sun Valley. We realize how important it is to come 'home' after a long day of racing and skiing and we are delighted you found our home so enjoyable, relaxing and well-equipped for your stay. It goes without saying that we'd love to welcome you back again the next time you are in Sun Valley! All the best and thank you again, Michelle & Craig

A perfect Fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Michelle & Craig's Ketchum townhome. The location is perfect and so close to town, River Run, the river and bike path. They have thought of everything and the house so well provisioned. We can't wait to return again - it won't be soon enough!
