Mammoth Lakes Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Update August 2016: Our goal is to keep your vacation costs to a minimum. We’ve chosen to not use the VRBO online booking that adds more fees to your vacation. (VRBO says "The service fee averages 6–7% and doesn’t exceed 9% of total rental price.") We accept 1) personal checks with verification, 2) free, secure bank-to-bank transfers with the system, and 3) PayPal credit card payments.

1 bedroom plus sleeping loft, 2 bathrooms. Sleeper sofa.

Super comfortable, clean, upgraded condo. Three skylights and window seats with tall windows in the dining area distinguish our condo from others in the complex. New: retractable shade for the big skylight above the loft beds -- for our guests who want to sleep past sunrise.

Check our reviews and rates and you'll see why we have returning guests. NOTE to returning guests: You get a discount off this year's rates.

Washer, dryer and laundry detergent in our condo -- so you can start each day fresh for all that outdoor activity. Hair dryers, shampoo, conditioners, lotions in both baths.

We provide a full stack of firewood and kindling for our EPA quick-starting fireplace.

Best sleeping area? It may be the loft with stripped-log beds and skylights (including one in the shower). The master bedroom is comfortable, also.

All beds -- including our sleeper-sofa by the fireplace -- have memory foam and down pillows.

The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking full meals. In summer, there's a large propane BBQ outside with a picnic table. Crockpot - 6 qt. - choose one of our chili or slow-cooker recipes. Throw in your ingredients on low before bed, or in the morning. When you come back, dinner's ready.

Coffee (dark roast, regular, decaf), tea (black, green, white, herbal), hot chocolate, oatmeal and popcorn always in the cabinets. Spices, sugar, creamer.

Free secure internet/Wi-Fi in the condo. Bring your laptop, iPad, iPod, MP3 and stream music through our Logitech speakers. HD/TV for your game system.

Checkers, chess, cards, games, poker chips, plenty of family DVDs and books available for your evening enjoyment.

The free Mammoth shuttle is at the end of our driveway, taking you all around town and to the mountain lodges. We're on the Green Line in winter heading straight to Eagle Lodge in approximately 6-8 minutes. Or drive to Eagle Lodge in less than 5 minutes. Connect to the other free shuttle lines if you're heading to Main or Canyon Lodges.

In summer/fall, we're on the free Purple shuttle line that goes all around town and to the Village and connects to all other free shuttles.

Super oversized Jacuzzi (16 jets) outdoors and covered - open all year. Sauna open all year. Heated pool and tennis courts open in the summer and early fall.

Billiards, ping pong a short walk away in our rec center.

Free, lit exterior parking immediately below our entrance. Locked ski/board closet next to our entrance door.

Regarding reviews: we never ask for reviews or use reviews from friends, neighbors, relatives. We just do our best to treat guests like we'd like to be treated. A vacation should be special. :)

NOTE: Regarding the upcoming 2016-17 ski/holiday season, we'll probably keep last season's rates: $150/night weeknights; $190/night weekends. Christmas/New Year's rate of $300/night; MLK and President's weekend rate of $260/night.

Our Mammoth Lakes Business Tax Certificate Number: #6168

Some honest disclosures: 1) Because we refuse to allow VRBO to charge you additional fees, they've dropped our listing down here even though we've listed with VRBO the longest of all Sunshine Village properties. 2) We've disabled VRBO's option that would allow them to email you their marketing materials. 3) We never email our renters asking for reviews. 4) We don't use stretched photos that make a room look larger. 5) We just want you to have an affordable, super vacation.

About The Owner

We enjoy sharing this condo as a base for the spectacular activities Mammoth offers: opportunities to ski, snowboard, fish, hike, bird-watch, golf, ride horses and bikes.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

What makes this condo unique

We like being walking distance to town while still being secluded in tall pines -- you can walk to Vons, the movie theater, Roberto's Mexican, Grumpy's, Rafters, etc. The summer and winter free shuttle route is at the end of our driveway -- hop on and head to the Village, up the Mountain, out to the lakes area.

This Place was Super!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Mammoth this past weekend. This place sleep comfortably for 6-8 people. It was clean and well maintained. There are plenty of kitchen cooking and eating ware. Colleen was very responsive, accommodating and organized. It was a great joy working with her. I would recommend this place to others.

Ultimate Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at Colleen's condo as we would not stay anywhere else. Colleen's impeccable customer service surpasses any establishment we've ever stayed at. She truly strives to make sure her guests have a wonderful time. My husband and I will no longer consider staying anywhere else in Mammoth. The condo has everything you need to have a great time! We enjoy watching the birds that come on the balcony. We can't wait to come back next year!!

Awesome Owner and EXCELLENT Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The reviews are all right, Colleen is by the far the most attentive host I've ever worked with. She makes sure you're getting what you paid for and then some! Her response time is unbeaten too. The condo itself is very clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. It's a great deal for a great place. I highly recommend it!!

Owner's Response: It’s music to my ears when we get positive feedback. We never ask for it-- we know you're busy when you return back home. You and your group are the guests we hope for: active fun outdoors-lovers. You make it all worthwhile for us. You’re part of our Mammoth family now.

Great place for family/friends

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three hit up Mammoth for a late Spring Break in mid April. The condo was great, most well stocked rental we have ever stayed in! The owner is very responsive, answered our few questions right away. The reservation/rental process was very easy and clear. We enjoyed the proximity to the mountain and village, but also really liked the opportunity to leave that all behind and enjoy a few nights in with a movie and cocoa. The ski closet was great for stashing wet gear and the Jacuzzi was a must stop every evening. The bird feeder... oh my gosh. I have never enjoyed watching birds so much! Great way to start the day with a cup of coffee and the breakfast crowd at the feeder. My husband has already asked that I keep this condo for the next time we visit. No trouble convincing me... we'll be back!

Owner's Response: When you – and all of our guests – are at the condo, I’m always wondering “are they doing OK? Is the condo satisfactory? Did they find what they needed? Are they satisfied?” I think I inherited a worrier-gene. :) So your comments here and the messages in our Guest Book give me hope that we’re doing something right on our end. Thank you so much – you were truly a pleasure to have as guests. We’ll keep the light on and the birdseed and suet stocked for you.

AWESOME Condo, GREAT location, WONDERFUL Owner

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this little gem for my young son's Spring Break last week, what a wonderful find! This condo is so lovely and cozy, we felt right at home. The condo's location is perfect, close to skiing, shops and restaurants and the complex it self has a lot of fun things to do: jacuzzi, pool table and ping pong table. Colleen the owner is a GEM!!! She makes sure your stay is enjoyable and stocks the kitchen with goodies and has tons of games to play. She is by far the BEST owner I have dealt with on VRBO, she actually reached out to us during our stay to see if everything was okay! I love this place and I love Colleen...I will be coming back soon, make room for me Colleen!!! P.S. Colleen leaves bird feed for the feeders hanging on the balcony...we filled them and watch the beauty that arrives to fed....WOW!

Owner's Response: A great trip to the mountains always starts with guests who are fun, adventurous, positive and tolerant. And that's exactly who you are. If you add to that a hard-working, reliable Mammoth cleaning and management staff, you've got the support you need. And all of that makes my job as owner so much easier! Thank you -- we'll be very happy to welcome you back.

Perfect condo--truly the best place to stay in Mammoth!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here last week with my husband and three children (aged 6-9). I have been visiting Mammoth just about every year since I was a child, and this condo was by far my favorite. In fact, other family members stayed in nearby condos and we all agreed this place is the best. It's updated tastefully, very light with lots of natural sunlight, and completely stocked with everything you might need. My favorite feature by far was the washer and dryer, what a difference that made! Colleen really cares about her guests and she was in touch with me by Email before and during my stay just to see if I needed anything. She also sent me a really detailed and helpful Email with details on gas prices for the drive to Mammoth as well as hiking/biking trails and just about anything else you might need to know about spending your vacation in Mammoth. I hope to stay here again next year. Thank you again for everything Colleen!

Owner's Response: What can I say? We have the best guests! Thank you so much, Paige, for taking time to write about how our place helped, in a small way, to make your trip a great one. We never ask for reviews so it surprises us in such a nice way when a guest like you takes time to do it. We're grateful you chose our place and look forward to welcoming you back.
