About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Please click on calendar for availability!! I update it daily!! Thank for visiting my condo in beautiful Mammoth Lakes. I took a month and a half from work to remodel this condo in June of 2009. 90% of the condo is redone. Please enjoy the remodel. I have worked very hard and I am proud of my work.

If you love the cabin feel, then this is it!! This (log furniture), 1 bedroom/1 .25 bath is very unique. Please scroll down and look at my pictures. I have a 32 in. flat screen in the bedroom and a 46' flat screen in the living room. Both with blue ray player and a collection of dvd. Now, that is a vacation. Don't let the bears scare you in Mammoth, we have about 100 plus dolls and figurines in our place, so you feel the environment you are in. If you just want to kick back by a wood fireplace, in the mountains, you can do that too(Please bring your own wood). Or maybe, sit in a spa, and relax your legs from a big day of snowboarding, then this is it!!!

There is a huge parking lot for this complex and you can park right in front. It is on the first floor, so in the winter it is easy access!! No going up stairs. Yeah!! I have two TV's, two DVD players and DVD's. Brand new frig, newer dishwasher, new flooring in bathroom and kitchen. Kitchen includes pots and pans, spices, bowls, plates, cups,forks, spoons, knives, microwave, full frig and freezer, can opener, stove, oven, dishwasher and soap, cutting board, and everything else you can think of in a full stocked kitchen. Just bring food, and a few spices!!!

Sleeping arrangements are 1 queen bed in master bedroom, 1 queen sleeper sofa and 1 twin sleeper sofa in living room.

I have comforters, blankets, and throw blankets. Bring your own linen, towels and food and you are ready to go!!!

Just upgraded!! New flooring, new area rugs, new baseboards, new door casings, and new wall frame for the 46' flat screen tv!!!

Just added wifi !!!! Just added Apple TV. No need to go out and rent a movie. Stay in and enjoy your netflix or iTunes. Please remember to log off when leaving.

I have 2 sleds for snow in the mirror closet.

Just added, a 46 ' LCD flat screen, a 32 inch flat screen in the Master Bedroom!!! With both blue ray!!!

Just added a new frig, and a $2300 Sleeper Sofa. It is so cozy!!

Just added a Xbox 360 and Games. Bring your favorite! And added Nintendo Gamecube with games, ihome and a ipod nano speaker system!!

Just added New Stove and New Toilet and new wall heater.

Just added a keyless entry!! No keys needed!!!

What I am working on. Bathtub and kitchen(.kitchen may be a while, a lot of $$)

Walking distance to everything. If you are too tired to cook, after a long day skiing or fishing walk to Grumpy's, Alberto's, Fireside Burgers, and Rafters. Bring your kids and eat great food or hang out in the bar. Walk to Vons and there is a Starbucks inside!! At Vons there is Carls Jr. and Giovanni's which has great pizza. Also, in Vons strip center is Chocolate Factory, Color Me Mine, Minaret Cinemas, and Tail Waggers. Across from Vons there is a Mammoth Sporting Goods Bike Shop, Oaktree, Salsas, Hot Chicks and Dominos Pizza. Going toward The Stove Restaurant is Country Liquor and Jalanpenos Restaurant. While still on Old Mammoth Road and going toward the main highway. then you have Quiznos, Radio Shack, Chart House, Mike and Millie Pizza/Sandwiches, Subway, Deli, TrueValue Hardware, Coffee Shop, Rite Aid, Footloose Snowboard Shop, Health Food, and Trout Outfitters.

We have a 'Hot List' available to let our customers know of last minute cancellations and special offers. Let me know if you would like to be added to it.

Here is the address. La Residence IV 2443 Sierra Nevada Road #O2, Mammoth Lakes, CA, 93546

If you prefer maid services and I have new guests coming in later the same day you are leaving, you would need to depart the unit by 10 AM to allow them time to clean the unit in time for a noon arrival of the next guest. You would still need to provide your own linens and towels – that is not included. You would also need to run the dishwasher to completion and empty it before you leave. They will take care of the rest. If this is of interest to you, let me know when you reserve a unit and I will get in touch with them in advance to determine if they would be available on your departure day. The charge is $80.00.

I do have a paypal account!! I also accept Checks, Cash, Master Card, American Express and Visa Card via Square Trade. Half of the total payment will be due now, and the other half will be due 3 weeks before your stay.

I do have an Iphone, so I receive e-mail and it is as fast as calling and the most efficient way. You can call or text me too. The only delay will be I am a firefighter, so during calls, I will not be able to get back to you, but I will. The second cell number is my wife's, and if it is an urgent, please call her. Her name is Debbie.

Liability: We have done in our best power to child proof this condo, and make it safe for everyone. Accepting these terms releases us of all liability. Please check out the condo as you arrive and call me immediately if anything is unsafe.

Why David Shimgawa chose Gold Country / High Sierra

One day we would like to retire here, that is why we bought this place to enjoy now and for the future. We did the research and found this place great for kids and living permanently. This complex has a pool, spa and tennis courts. We found that Mammoth Lakes have a very low crime rate and neighbors look at for one another, which is awesome!! Please enjoy our place and take care of it as it was yours. We go all the time and wish we could move there now!!

Wonderful stay in cozy condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at the Mammoth Escape condo and it was as wonderful as we remember! David was very helpful every step of the way. It is stocked with everything that you need with a lot of great entertainment (movies, games and books). Located extremely close to Mammoth Eagle Lodge - the bus stop is steps from the condo so I could sleep in when my husband went skiing early and catch up later! It is also very close to several great restaurants.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at David's condo- there were only 2 of us so it was very roomy, warm (the heaters work great!) and felt like home! Definitely a mountain cabin feel- we loved all the bears throughout the condo! It is conveniently located to the slopes and to shops and restaurants. David was very quick to respond to any questions we had, and gave us very detailed directions! Will definitely stay here again!

Such a homey place, you definitely need to stay here!

  • 4 of 5

Amazing condo, very very well equipped kitchen, very spacious living room, dining table, and one pretty big bedroom, and 1.5 bath. David is a great owner, quick to reply and an honest guy, guided me through the whole process and I felt very comfortable from the time I booked the condo to when we left. I play video games, so the x-box and gamecube were a big ++ (and they were all connected and ready to use! And David's note tags were a great help, so detail oriented, I appreacite that). We were a bit worried about the heaters from other past experiences but they worked perfectly, we even had to turn it down bc it got warm pretty quickly (great place for winter time I would say). The sleeper sofa was okay, not too comfortable but it is a sleeper sofa, so no biggie. Some more lighting would help, but thats my personal preference. Easy to get to and great location in Mammoth, very close to everything. Overall, a very very well prepared home, no stress there, would highly recommend, do you have another rental condo with two bedrooms? I would book it in a heartbeat for my next vacation!

I"ll be back

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a pleasant surprise. It was everything as advertised and fulfilled its outstanding reviews. Though it is a rental, a warm and comfortable atmosphere surrounds you upon entering and continues throughout your stay with many well thought out extra’s and guidance. Dave was quick to respond to any questions and made it easy for me. My visit certainly reflects all the 5 star reviews with 100% concurrence.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for the two of us. The condo would have held a lot more but since there were only two of us fishermen there was a lot of room. Location was great to hit all the lakes in the area. We will be back.
