Thank you very much for inquiring about my beautiful home away from home – I really appreciate it. This condo is unique as 1-bed rental condos go – keep reading to see why.
My wife & I are lucky enough to own 2 Mammoth condos (both in the same building!). If you can use my larger condo – contact me. I have some guests that rent both at the same time. If owning 2 Mammoth vacation condo does not show that my family is CRAZY about Mammoth - then nothing will.
VRBO = Vacation Rental by OWNER. Have you noticed how many of these listings are NOT by OWNER? I own this condo so you will ACTUALLY be dealing with the OWNER.
Mammoth has a ton of LE$$ expensive places to stay than my condo BUT if you want great VALUE for your hard-earned $$$ - then this is the place for you. In addition to having a very nice condo on the inside (thanks to my wonderful Martha Stewart like wife), we also have a fantastic complex. Our complex has underground parking so in courtyard you DO NOT see any asphalt or vehicles. If you want a low-cost place to stay, Mammoth does have a Motel-6 in town (760) 934-6660.
1-Bed/1 Bath Condo:
This BEAUTIFUL good sized (approx. 750 sq. ft.) condo has a King Bed, a set of bunk beds, a 47” flat panel TV, fireplace, balcony, full kitchen, & free wi-fi.
The complex has a heated pool (summer only), 2 HUGE outdoor Jacuzzis, outdoor gas BBQs, beautiful grounds and a newly remodeled Rec Room. The Rec Room has a pool table, huge flat screen, fireplace, sofas, kitchenette, and a SAUNA.
In WINTER you will SPOILED by the 3 L’s (location, location, location). My beautiful 'home away from home' is only 120 yards from the nearest chairlift and only 210 yards from Canyon Lodge. Canyon Lodge is a full-service Lodge with rentals, lessons, shops, bars, restaurants, & ski school. There are 4 lifts & 2 rope tows at Canyon Lodge. If you are not very familiar with the Canyon Lodge area - please check out the Satellite view.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me about all things Mammoth even if you don't want to stay in my condo. I can be a great resource for you upcoming trip to The 2nd Happiest Place on Earth. If my 'home away from home' is not for you - that's OK. If you contact me I can provide other options for you.
Also feel free to contact me for my great Mammoth insider info. IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TO MAMMOTH or it has been a long time - my great info can help you to get completely orientated to Mammoth way before you arrive at the beautiful town. I WILL help your family make the most Mammoth Memories as possible.
I DO HAVE AN OPEN FLOOR PLAN. The reason I am stating this is that my wife (far better-half) and I are avid House Hunters fans. Last night we saw a show in which the husband DID NOT want an open floor plan. I thought that is a great feature in both of our condos BUT we don't have it in our very own house.

My wife & son (Rhett) love Mammoth (and Ice Cream too!). It is our 'home away from home.' Rhett boarded his first Black Diamond run at age 6 1/2 and has boarded Cornice.
My wife has decorated the condo, made the drapes, etc. Thank-goodness for that because I can't draw a straight line with a ruler or match my own clothes.
When it comes to vacations - I am an 'A' type person. I must know know as much of the Lay-of-the-Land as possible before arrival. Contact me and I will give you all of the inside scoops and must see places before arrival. If you just want to RELAX and DO NOTHING, that is fine too.
We own 2 Mammoth vacation condos (in the same complex) - if that does not show that we are CRAZY about Mammoth - then nothing will! I truly enjoy sharing my Mammoth info with others.
I know how important your vacation time is and I try really hard to offer a great value for your hard earned $$$.
John - the Funmiester - I OWN & MANAGE this beautiful condo! purchased this condo in 2003
The reason is simple - LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. We get completely SPOILED by this LOCATION. We are ONLY 117 yards from the nearest lift & ONLY 210 yards from a full-service Lodge.
The forest in right outside the front door. We have 2 HUGE OUTDOOR jacuzzis (outdoor jacuzzis were a must have when we purchased this condo). In summer we have a heated pool.
Underground parking was a big MUST HAVE because of the MASSIVE amounts of snow Mammoth gets (about 350 inches a year!) I also like the bike room & having a restaurant so close you can hit it with a snowball (literally).
King bed AND a nice, solid set of bunk beds is great to have in a 1-bedroom. My condo is good-sized by Mammoth standards for a 1-bed (750 sq. ft.). Many Mammoth 1-bed condos are 500-600 sq. ft.
We are only about 210 yards from a FULL-SERVICE lodge (Canyon Lodge) which has a FREE gondola that you can take to the Village. The gondola ride is beautiful and takes 4 min, 10 seconds. Also for good measure, there is a bar/restaurant right across the street - so close that you could hit it with a SNOWBALL.
The lodge has lift tickets, lessons, restaurants, bars, shops & rentals.
I am the owner of this condo - my "home away from home." At the bottom of this post I am posting EXACTLY what my guest sent to me via email. This guest is from England and booked my condo way back in September, 2014 and she is staying in April, 2015.
I try really hard to provide ALL of my guests with ALL kinds of (hopefully) GREAT Mammoth info. Did you know that Mammoth has great things to see & do in the dead of winter (in addition to skiing/boarding)? You can go and see an AWESOME Ghost Town or go inner tubing or dog sledding and much much more!
I know that 99% of you have very limited vacation time & I want to help you to make the most of your Mammoth Memories with that time. I encourage all of my guests to contact me via phone, text and email. I have had guests call me while they were in a Gondola on Mammoth Mountain and guests call me from remote parts around Mammoth where I didn't even know there was cell phone coverage. Since this guest is coming from England (5,200 miles away!) - I helped her with planning other parts of her United States vacation.
I will help you whether you are from Los Angeles or Las Vegas....Tahiti or Timbuktu. I actually have had guests from Tahiti that stayed for 10 days, two years in a row BUT I have never had a guest from Timbuktu (yet).
HERE IS THE GUEST COMMENT EXACTLY AS SHE WROTE IT:
My thoughts so far are I can’t believe my luck in finding you in all of my searches way back when we decided to come to Mammoth, how we stumbled across your condo and your wealth of knowledge is down to some very very good luck.
I love these ideas so far and we will definitely go and see the ones we can access. I had realised with a bit of research that the Tioga pass is likely to be closed when we are there.
Where would you suggest we visit on our way back over to San Francisco? Do you have a favourite area to explore? We leave Mammoth on the 7th April and fly home from SF on the 11th.
John made us feel very comfortable and at ease with choosing his condo. He was very personable with calling us and making sure we knew how to enjoy Mammoth to its full potential during our 4 day vacation. This is why we like dealing with an actual owner. He provided resources and pretty much an itinerary of activity options to get the most out of our stay. We felt like family.
All of the amenities of the condo were updated and beautiful. Loved enjoying the 2 large jacuzzis and sauna after a long day of mountain activities. The bike room came in handy for storing/protecting our bikes and provided tools and an air pump for bike maintenance. The location of the condo was ideal with trolleys and lifts just a short walk away from the condo, and it was just up the street from a lot of nice stores and restaurants.
Our recent stay here was awesome! We booked the one bedroom and it was perfect for our family. The condo was very well equipped, conveniently located for snowboarding at the base of Canyon Lodge and John was extremely helpful and had lots of great suggestions for Mammoth activities. we will most certainly stay again. Thank you sir!
John's one-bedroom unit is exactly as described: spacious, clean, comfortable, nicely furnished, and equipped with everything we needed for a five-day stay. Better yet, we could put on our boots, shoulder our skis, and walk 100 yards to the closest lift, which allowed us to ski in for lunch. We finished each day with an adult beverage in one of the hot tubs, and we cooked every meal in the unit, which saved lots of restaurant money. The 50-inch flat-screen TV was a bonus, though we were usually too tired to watch anything past 9 p.m.
I have just one small complaint: John, please replace that annoying needle-spray water-saving shower head with a normal shower head.
We'll be booking this unit again for future trips to Mammoth.
This is our second stay at this "Home Away from Home" condo and we've had a great experience both times. We are a summer mountain family. The grounds are very pretty with two spas and a pool. This condo is close to the the Village for tons of summer activities and events. The Trolley Car will pick you up or you could walk to it in 15 minutes. The unit is fully stocked with dishes, utensils, games, extra blankets, pillows etc. If there is ever a concern, the owner is easy to reach and has a good staff that will take care of you! If you love to ski this condo is awesome because is right next to the ski slopes!!! Also, Austria Hoff is across the street and they have a great Happy Hour menu and fantastic restaurant food. Don't forget to try Taco Tuesday if you're there. Overall and great rental experience.
First thing I need to say John, you were not kidding when you said Location location location about your place!!!!! My husband, my 11 year old son and I got there Friday evening for a mini vacation and were awed by the cleanliness, location and the beautifully decorated condo. We got the 1 bedroom one which is just perfect for our family of 3. We also loved the underground parking which will be great during in the snow season. We went hiking to Devils post pile and Rainbow falls. I wish I could post pictures so you can see the beauty of the waterfall and the color of the trees!!!!! We ate at Angel's on the main road, my husband's favorite, then came back to the condo and went in the Jacuzzi, my muscles needed it so badly. We also used the sauna, just like John explained in his instructions. He had tips and phone numbers for everything that goes on in Mammoth. Sunday, we took a drive to South Lake Tahoe and had lunch there, about 2 1/2 hour drive from the condo. Our stay was a bit short but sweet, and we are already thinking of coming back for thanksgiving hopefully for some skiing. The condo being so close to Canyon lodge is so convenient for skiers and yet so close to town for shoppers!!!!! This place is great for a family of 4, I recommend it highly year round, but if I come with friends or more family members, John has a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo in the same complex that I checked out, I would rent that one out. Thanks for a wonderful week end John, we had and awesome time!!!!!!!!!!!!
