East Central House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Looking for a large house close to downtown? This is the place for you! Most 'historic' houses are old, drafty, musty-smelling homes, but this one is definitely NOT that. It's completely restored and updated, with new furniture and decor. It's in the eclectic 9th & 9th district of Salt Lake City, just over a mile from the center of downtown Salt Lake City and the convention center. Close to the city's center, yet just down the street from beautiful Emigration Canyon and the ski resorts.

The house is truly exquisite inside; it's filled with antiques and items that we've collected in our travels around the world, NOT the same old plywood furniture that you see in most of the other rentals. Before you book your stay somewhere else, really take a look at the pictures of the decor & furnishings and ask yourself if that would be more comfortable. Not to mention the location!

There is a large, private hot tub in the back yard. There is a 40" Smart TV with free Netflix and Amazon Instant movie accounts in the spacious entertainment room. There is also a large collection of books and DVDs. The dining room has a huge round table and can seat up to 10 people. Parking available for small boats and RVs. There is a 24-hour supermarket within 2 blocks of the house and the kitchen is fully equipped with all of the appliances & utensils that you'll need during your stay.

Please note that bedroom 5 doubles as a family room, but it has its own locking door and closet. Click on the video tour to see the layout of the house.


MASTER BEDROOM: Queen-size bed (sleeps 2)

BEDROOM #2: Queen-size bed (sleeps 2)

BEDROOM #3: Full-size bed (sleeps 2)

BEDROOM #4: Queen-size bed & twin-size bunk bed (sleeps 4)

About Cami

I am not a big rental agency that will treat you like a number. I own a handful of extra homes that I rent out & I'll treat you like my guests. I take so much more pride in my guests' satisfaction than any large rental agency does. If ANYTHING is not perfect with your stay, I will make it right!

Cami purchased this house in 2010

Why Cami chose Salt Lake City

We bought it because of its proximity to the mountains, downtown Salt Lake City, the major ski resorts, and public transportation, and the Hogle Zoo.

What makes this house unique

This house is in the 9th & 9th District, which is our 'gaslight' district. It's a small neighborhood full of curio shops, unique restaurants, yoga studios, etc.

Great house and location.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 12. It was clean and decorated nicely. It is located close to everything in Salt Lake City. We enjoyed our stay very much, and we would recommend it to everyone.

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a great location!! The owners are very easy to contact and will answer any questions as quickly as possible. We had several questions for them and they were quick to respond. The house itself is a great space with all the necessary amenities. We will definitely stay here again when we have a group in the SLC area!

First (and definitely not last) SLC Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have driven through SLC a number of times over the years on our way to Bryce, Zion, Grand Canyon, etc. This year we decided to see SLC, other than from the I-15, and stay for a week. And are we glad we did. SLC is a wonderful city and we can’t wait to return, again and again. After careful review we selected this property for our stay. This is the most professionally operated VRBO we have rented so far and we have rented many. The house has an excellent location and is quite large by inner-city standards. We require three key amenities: comfortable bed (check), hot shower (check) and well stocked kitchen (check). The rest was gravy. We extend our warm thanks to our host James, who provided excellent advice regarding things to do and see in the SLC area.

Great Family Place

Great house in a very convenient and safe area. We had 8 people and easily could have had 2 - 4 more.

5 Stars For Sure!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable experience renting this home. It was a full-time rental, so there wasn't a bunch of owner's stuff cluttering up the drawers like some of the other rentals we've stayed at in the past. Very clean and comfortable furnishings. Great neighborhood. The owners provided excellent customer service.
