Mammoth Lakes Condo Rental Photos and Description

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!!

Home Away From Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I've been staying at David's condo now for 3 years---- Its the Greatest!!!!! He has it SO well organized, its very well stocked and appointed. My family and I call it "The BEAR condo" because off all the bear decorations. A perfect location--- in town but off any main road--- very quiet. I'll be back year after year!!!!

Convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

David, the owner, is easy to communicate with and we found the condo to be exceptionally nice. It was also walking/biking/bus-riding distance to everything in Mammoth Lakes, including the extensive town trail system, stores, restaurants, etc. The area is a great spot for those looking for the summer Yosemite experience without all the crowds. It takes very little time to drive up to the Lee Vining Yosemite entrance or to Mono Lake. Plus, the Mammoth Lakes themselves are worth a trip all on their own!

We made use of the laundry room (by the pool/sauna). There was some laundry detergent in the condo, but we had brought our own. If I remember correctly, it was 75 cents for 40 minutes in the dryer. On high, that was more than enough to dry everything, even jeans.

I've rented many VRBO rentals over the years and the kitchen in David's condo is the best-equipped I've encountered. Colander: check. Baking pans: check. Plastic storage tubs: check. Most unusual, believe me. However, do have at least one meal at Delicious Kitchen. And plan to reheat the leftovers in the microwave!

Thanks David, for providing an affordable place to stay.

Centrally located great condo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came up to mammoth for a fishing trip. This condo was perfect size for the three of us and Extremely close to everything in town. The entertainment center has everything you would want (Xbox, Apple TV, good selection of DVDs) and the kitchen is stocked full of supplies which made it really easy to cook in the condo. David was so accommodating and answered emails promptly. I would highly recommend this condo for the location and great communication from hosts.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I came to Mammoth Lakes for business. This was our first VBRO experience and I must say it was fantastic. This condo is so cute, clean, well stocked, and warm. The location is perfect, very close to the main town and the village. I could live here full time. As chefs my mom and I loved the kitchen size and availability of utensils. The entertainment center has everything. The queen bed in the bedroom has a memory foam pad on it - SO COMFY! We can't wait to come back. Thank you David! - Chefs Kat & Debbie Ramsey

Cozy condo, great location, has all the amenities you could think of

  • 5 of 5

My family of four wanted to trek to Mammoth for our last ski trip of the season. This condo is located in the heart of town with great accessibility to everything you need. Very comfy, has high speed internet (a must for my family), and the kitchen has all the supplies you might need if you decide to cook. Plenty of entertainment is provided such as movies, books, video games, etc. Our girls are still little so there was plenty of space. Nicely decorated, the outdoors bear theme is very fitting. Highly recommend.
