Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
'Not Rich, Just Lucky!' Lestia and her two better halves, Freddie the dog and Buzzy the horse, spend most of their time on their rustic and remote horse ranch about 20 miles northeast of Sun Valley, but enjoy spending time in town, too. The condo is ideal for this mixed-species family since it is close to all the amenities of town for Lestia, a corral for Buzzy, plus mountain trails, meadows, and streams nearby where Freddie, Buzzy, and Lestia can all play and gallivant to their heart's content.
Lestia purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Lestia chose Ketchum
I spent years looking for just the right place to buy in the Sun Valley/Ketchum area. The location of this condo has the perfect balance between access to in-town amenities, ski lifts, public transportation, and an abundance of recreational opportunities all within easy walking distance. Plus its location on the top floor corner with a huge balcony and gorgeous views just can't be beat. All this at a price that is so affordable!
What makes this Condo unique
The balcony is what sets this condo apart from all others. It is larger and has a better view than most of the multi-million dollar condos in the area. And it is so comfortable, like an extension of the living room with outdoor carpeting, cushioned furniture, plenty of winter sunshine, or summer shade. It's a great spot to have wine and snacks after a day of skiing, hiking, horseback riding, or whatever activities you might enjoy. Another unique feature of the property is that you can walk directly from my condo on the top floor to the street without climbing stairs or using elevators. This is possible because the building was built into the side of a hill that is as high as the top floor. A covered, elevated walkway extends from my door to the opposite side of the building and the street where private parking and a bus stop are just steps away. Incredibly convenient!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
We are currently disputing all charges as we ended up (after unloading all of our items for the weekend) leaving the condo before we stayed 1 night. The exterior had boxes, a couch, and other junk all around. The interior had hair in the sink, the top of the range had not been cleaned in a long time, and the microwave was a mess.
In addition the property manager (owner) was very intrusive and rude.
We are reconsidering our relationship with VRBO as a result of this horrible experience. VRBO, you need to do a much better job of ensuring your properties are up to your client's expectations at all times.
The title of this review is correct. Having Dena and her husband in my condo was a host's worst nightmare. The rest of the review is a fabrication in an attempt by Dena and her husband to get out of their financial responsibility. They thought they could get away with fraud, theft of services, intimidation, and threats against me, and found out otherwise. At least they were smart enough to leave before I had to call law enforcement to have them forcibly removed. With 16 years of positive reviews, my reputation speaks for itself.
A lot of bang for the buck!
Have been visiting Sun Valley since the years of single chair lifts @ River Run & so my wife & I have certain requirements & Lestia's condo has just what we need & like. The location is ideal, a short drive to down town & bus stops across the street for getting to the lifts or down town. The parking is convenient just across the street and same level as the unit. The view is very special being 4 floors up, with a large deck, looking out across the Warm Springs River & a 180 degree view of the rising mountains beyond. The unit was well provisioned & equipped & the bed was more comfortable than our own. Lestia was very courteous, timely in her communications & well organized in her booking, invoicing & arrival guest guide info for the unit that she provided.
Lestia, we are most glad to have made a new friend & will be back next winter to enjoy it all again!

Very nice and easly accessible. A few items that were negative, screen door bent and wont lock, sliding glass door modified and does not lock, sticky kitchen floors and counters. Nothinf of significance but could be improved. Would rent again if available.
Perfect place for two, close to skiing or hiking and town.
We had a very nice time in Ketchum. The condo is in a quiet area with great walking access to town or short drive to world class hiking and skiing. All the amenities are included, with a great outdoor area to enjoy the weather and views of the mountain.
Great place. She was very responsive.
Unit was great. Exterior of other units could use some clean up but other than that, it was fine.
Great location, nice deck, Sun Valley/ Ketchum area is awesome. It was great dealing with Lestia, excellent communication, very accommodating, thank you.
Hiking/biking/snowshoeing trails all within a block. Downhill skiing is a 4-minute ride on the free and comfortable bus service that will also take you anywhere you are likely to want to go in the Ketchum/Sun Valley area. All restaurants, shops, events, winter and summer recreation and local attractions are within a short walk or bus ride. Just down the street is the fabulous new Wood River YMCA with gym, pools, spas, steam room, climbing wall, yoga, and much more! No location in the Sun Valley area is more central to all the amenities and recreational opportunities that the area has to offer!
