About the property

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

Welcome to a Mammoth epic winter! Drive to Eagle in less than 5 minutes from our condo or hop on the free shuttle.

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. :)

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 never email our renters asking for reviews. 3) We don't use stretched photos that make a room look larger. 4) 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.

Perfect family condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 9 nights skiing. The condo was perfect. Colleen went out of her way to ensure we had a great stay and nothing was too much trouble. The cupboards were well stocked with everything we needed, and the washer and dryer were perfect for our long stay. The fire made the place cosy and warm and the location is ideal for getting up onto the mountain quickly and easily either by car or free bus. The bird feeders on the balcony were a constant delight, which had the kids spotting new bird types and cooing at the squirrels who visited. The jacuzzi and sauna were fab after a day on the slopes. We would HIGHLY recommend this condo and hope to revisit one day soon. Thanks heaps Colleen for a brilliant time at Mammoth.

Owner's Response: You are an amazing, fun bunch of Australians. You put up with challenging conditions after the blizzard without complaining and got outside to enjoy Mammoth at its snowiest best. Thank you for choosing our place and for your kind comments here on VRBO. And thanks for feeding the birds and giving us enjoyable updates of your skiing and exploring adventures. Now you get to enjoy your summer down under. Our best regards from California!

My family of 6 stayed here after the Labor Day holiday. It was perfect for us! Colleen is great, and goes above and beyond! She is honest, and you can tell she really cares about the people who rent here. This was my first time in Mammoth, and we loved it! The condo is in a great location, and Colleen is helpful with suggestions on the area and activities. Condo was very clean and well stocked. Beds were comfortable! I don't know what else to say, except that we hope to be back here next year!

Owner's Response: We have the best guests. Like your beautiful young family having so much fun exploring the Eastern Sierra. My job and that of my excellent support crew is to have the condo ready, and then step back and let you have your privacy. When you need us, that’s when we jump to do whatever you need. We’ll be so very happy to have you return.

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.
