Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 8 / 11

This bright, tastefully decorated, comfortable mountain getaway is yours to share. New (spring 2016) HVAC system features 4-zone heating and (new) central air conditioning. A private state-of-the-art Jacuzzi hot tub on the deck, perfect for unwinding and sharing exploits of the day. Very well priced for the location, size, quality and amenities, this place will feel special without being absurdly pricey. Recent renovations include a 'mud room' upon entry with electric boot dryer, cubbies and hooks for outdoor clothes and gear -- all stored and ready for your next day out on the slopes.

Location is a major feature of this condo. Old Town is less than a 10 minutes walk away. Free shuttle buses stop right below the condo, with 9 scheduled per hour in winter. The buses go pretty much everywhere, including all 3 ski mountains.

The townhouse condo is an end unit on the sunny side of the valley (earning the name 'Sunspot'). It has an interesting multi-level design, with a nice flow and tasteful decor, topped by an atrium and skylight. The 3 bedrooms are on separate levels with attached bathroom. All bedrooms have flat screen TVs (people seem to want them on vacation), and there's a 42-inch HD TV in the living room. The place has cable and wifi. A gas fireplace keeps things cozy; same for the reclining couches! The infrared gas grill is on the same outside deck as the hot tub, overlooking the valley.

8 adults can sleep in the 3 bedrooms. If needed, the living room has an inflatable full (double) bed and a couple of camp mattresses more suitable for children. In practice, people more often just throw bedding on the super-comfortable couch for any extra sleeping space. There's a trundle rollaway bed under the twin-over-full bunk bed.

Two covered parking spaces in the garage underneath the complex accommodate almost any vehicle (don't rent a super-tall SUV and you'll be fine.) The ski locker in the garage keeps your skis on the most convenient level. You could go green and save green in the winter if you only intend to ski the 3 areas near Park City, including Deer Valley, Park City Mountain and the Canyons. (You'd want a car to reach Snowbird / Alta or Brighton / Solitude.)

The kitchen offers modern appliances and utensils, a mounted flat TV, and countertop and table dining. It isn't tricked out with granite and custom cabinetry, but it guests tell me it's more than sufficient for vacation meal prep. We stock basic cooking supplies and spices; guests are asked to use and replace on an honor system.

A note on bed configuration:

Lower bedroom: Bunk bed with Twin on top and Full on bottom, plus a pull-out trundle most suitable for a child.

Middle bedroom: Queen bed and Twin bed.

Upper bedroom: Queen bed.

Living room: Inflatable full (double) bed + 2 camp style inflatable mattresses most suitable for kids. (Couches do not pull out into beds, but folks have been known to toss a couple of sheets and blankets and crash on them.)

About Harry Matz

I live and work in Washington, DC as an attorney for the Department of Justice. In my spare time, I hang out with friends and family, get culture, do yoga, pretend to stay fit by running, biking and the like, read, volunteer, learn, do stuff. I like real books with physical pages. I lay off of Facebook, more or less.

Harry Matz purchased this condo in 2010

Why Harry Matz chose Utah

Convenience to everything, both skiing and town, and the feel of the place. It's bright but comfy, quirky but efficient. The floor plan allows great privacy in the bedrooms (they have no common walls or even floors, and each has an attached bathroom). The common space also flows nicely.

What makes this condo unique

If you happen to prefer a car-free ski vacation, it can be done.

There is a large inflatable mattress (full bed) + 2 additional camp-type air mattresses, more suitable for youngsters, in the living room (coffee table / chest). The couches don't technically convert into beds, but many adults would probably find a better night's sleep on one of them than one of the air mattresses.

Notes:
The fireplace is gas and is as simple as flipping on/off a light. What it lacks in old-school romance it makes up for in convenience. I employ an honor system for supplies, especially in the kitchen, where basic cooking supplies (butter, oils, spices) are provided on a use-and-replace basis, so they are there when you arrive. Guests' cooperation (including replenishment as you go) is appreciated. A preferred Comcast cable package is in place that allows recording of programs for later viewing. The owner will provide an access code for a limited number of paid programs and movies during your stay. An older model, large Mac desktop computer is available for the convenience of guests who want to lug it up from its closet.

Outstanding Condo, Great Value & Top Quality

  • 5 of 5

A long overdue review, and thank you for our lovely host, Harry.

We loved this place! We strongly recommend it and look forward to our next visit.

We planned our trip at the last minute, and our off-season timing afforded us a large number of options. But Harry's lightning fast, helpful detailed responses sealed the deal. We are so glad!

It’s was terrific vacation spot. Bright and sunny as advertised, but so much more. Simply beautifully appointed! Everything was in new condition—and spotless.

The layout of the condo is well suited to having a group or large family. We all enjoyed our own bedroom, bathroom and personal space. We had asked Harry if our adult children could share the bunk-bedded room. It was a great space for them with generous, comfortable twin mattresses and an en suite bathroom. Out of his genuine concern that we find the perfect place for our stay, Harry actually understated the accommodations. The beds and bedding were very comfy and we all slept great each night.

We enjoy eating in, and the kitchen is certainly a chef’s kitchen, fully stocked and fully equipped with everything you could need. The dining area is sunlit with huge windows. We were delighted with the large number of staple food items (e.g., spices, condiments, cooking oils), and even some snacks, available for guests. Everything was just comfortable and easy. We felt truly at home.

As much as we loved our time in the condo, its best feature is the amazing location. It’s described as ‘walk-able’ to town and it truly is just a hop-skip away. There’s no need to walk though, as the free bus stops literally across the street if you’re heading to the slopes and a couple doors down if you’re heading into the fun, vibrant Main Street downtown. What a pleasure to get around so conveniently—without a car.

Be sure to spend some time in the rooftop Jacuzzi—complete with views! What a perfect way to end the day!

Thank you Harry, for our wonderful get-away at your home-away!

Owner's Response: Mark, I appreciate your review, and am glad the condo met your needs. About the A/C, I was so happy to redo the HVAC a year ago, with A/C for the first time, but since then it works great when it works, but has proven fickle. It's wonderful that Paul the manager is all over this and any other problem, but it doesn't immediately solve the problem of a too-hot condo. I regret that we fell short on this for your stay. It should now finally be fixed! The owner of the HVAC company, who sold and installed the unit, was out just yesterday, and we think we've diagnosed the core problem. He'll replace the fan motor. This shouldn't happen again. Harry

Amazing Condo with everything you could ever want.

  • 5 of 5

Lets just start here: A BOOT HEATER! What an amazing luxury that was, I love warm toes. :) The views from the hot tub are amazing, the beds comfy and the common areas are great. Overall, we had an amazing time at this condo and will be back next year.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Harry was delightful to deal with. Answered all my questions promptly and the packet he sent included extensive information about the property and Park City. The only reason I cannot give a 5 star review is the kitchen and living space are on separate levels. Nothing to be done about it but its tough for the chef to be apart from the action! Also this is getting picky but place could use a new toaster and better pillows. Walked to Main Street 5 nights. Very convenient! Also bus stop right outside the property. We drove so did not need to use the public transportation but super convenient if you do.

Owner's Response: Cheryl, Thanks for your review. I happen to love the layout of the condo because there can be lots of things going on at any given time, and the "up and down" of kitchen and living room is only a half-level, within sight and sound. But clearly it's a matter of personal preference. Good input on the toaster. I should replace it. As for the pillows, I'm not sure what to do, as it's such a matter of personal taste. Maybe I should get some more of them in different firmness and material so people have a choice. Thanks for your suggestions. Harry

We keep coming back and coming back and coming back...

  • 5 of 5

I've written an earlier detailed review about how wonderful the condo is, and the owner, Harry. We vacation at Deer Valley once each year, and this lovely Sunspot unit has become our home away from home. There is great value in knowing that you are working with an owner of integrity who values customer service and good quality relationships. We always know there will be nothing to worry about, and if a problem arises, it is taken care of immediately. The layout of the home is perfect for our group, and we will continue returning as long as Harry'll have us!

Owner's Response: Just a note to thank you. It's nice to have new people come and stay, of course, but repeat guests are the lifeblood of vacation home ownership. And you're a valued guest, for sure! I appreciate that you wrote a nice review this year, because in honesty I know that there were some rough spots in our readiness pre-stay, and while the details are fading in memory at this point, I recall a number of glitches, and hope you know that we did everything we could to address them as fast and completely as possible. Since you left, we have realized that the humidifier was not properly connected or functioning at all, despite the "60%" setting on the dial. Fixed (not easily, mind you, but fixed). We've replaced the dishwasher with a well-functioning, quiet Bosch. The dryer works better (new belt). And the ice maker now makes ice. See you in the future! Harry

Deer Valley (Snowbasin base)

Sunspot, Deer Valley, Utah, USA (Lower Deer Valley / Park City) -- This tastefully decorated, bright townhouse condo is just outside of Park City, on the road to Deer Valley but closer to Park City proper Pull into 1 of 2 covered parking spaces below. Or shuttle up and go car-free! A short walk of under 10 minutes puts you in the heart of historic Main St. with its cornucopia of shops, bars, galleries & restaurants ranging from burger joints to haute cuisine where you'll want to use the card with 12 raised numbers. Three lines of the free city bus stops in front of the complex, and the system easily takes you to town, all 3 ski mountains and pretty much anywhere worth going (4 lines operate in this 'high frequency zone'). After a long day of skiing or snowboarding, soak in the hot tub on the private deck and take in great mountain valley views. The condo has a preferred cable TV package, wifi and printer. No annoying owner lockout closets in the bedrooms or kitchen.

Other Activities: shopping, mountain coaster, disc golf, boating, rock climbing, hot air ballooning, mini golf, health/beauty spa, basketball court, wildlife viewing

Golf: Once the snow melts, the shortish golf season is great on area courses.
