Great place, great people

  • 5 of 5

We were 11 guys staying here for 5 days of snowboarding. The house is really great. It was super awesome that the house has 11 comfortable beds, so there was ample room to sleep. The kitchen and the bathrooms were great and clean. It was also really nice to use the hot tub when we got back everyday.

There was a slight miscommunication about the dates, because we landed in SLC around midnight on Saturday night, but there was another group staying in the house until Sunday morning. This really could have been a mess, especially considering that we all wanted to go to sleep right away to get to the mountain early. The owners resolved the situation immediately though, by putting us up in a hotel nearby and coming by the hotel early in the morning to pick up our luggage so that we could go straight to the mountain. When we arrived at the house after our first day of riding, the owners were there fixing one of the toilets on their own, because the previous group did who knows what to it, and it was Sunday, so they couldn't get a repairman to fix it. It did not take them long, and they were very friendly. After that first day, which really could have been terrible, but wasn't, everything went really smoothly.

As a side note, it was definitely beneficial to have rented cars in that area, even though there is a bus system.

All in all, thanks to the owners for being so awesome.

Way cool.........!!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed everything about the place, location and hospitality. The house had numerous towels, blankets, linens. Everything we needed. The house sleeps a very large group. We had 11 men on this trip, everyone had beds. The location and the close proximity to the ski areas is an understatement. Just around the corner are several different shopping areas to select from. The kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials needed.

At the end of the day.........the hot tub is a great bonus too.

I would definitely rent this place again.

Special thank you to the owner Chelsea..........very cool to deal with and accommodating as well :-)

Ok for the price

  • 2 of 5

We were 7 people travelling for a ski week.

The pros:

1)Enough beds and rooms for 7 people

2)Well located (25-35 min drive to Alta-Snowbird-Solitude-Brighton) 5 min drives to grocery store and restos)

3)Quite neiborhoud

4)air hockey game in the basement

5)Owners were available to quickly answer our requests.

The cons:

1)no dining room and no place to accomodate more than 4 sitting people to eat. We had to bring the patio table Inside, in the family room to have enough room for 7 to eat at the same time.

2)Bad smell in the house (Is it coming from the carpet, the garage? not sure ... )

3)The fridge was dirty.

In summary, the price is fair and I would recommend (and add a star) if the owner would fix the bad smell issue and make sure the house is cleaner.

Owner's Response: To say this review came as a shock would be a huge understatement. First, we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our home, you can see the previous reviewer went into detail about how clean our home is. We do a professional deep clean at least once a month and of course clean up really well between each guest with a professional cleaning crew. In addition the entire home has carpet that is brand new (less than a year old) and the whole house has just recently been repainted. Also, the basement was just finished last year. I have NO IDEA how this guest could think there is a strange smell, considering that the guest who stayed right after him left a glowing review and has even re-booked with us for next year (you can see his review just right before this one). Secondly, we never implied that there was a dining area. We have provided photos of each room in the house and accurate descriptions of all the amenities. The guests did not have to bring the patio table inside for a larger table, we have a foldaway banquet table located in the upstairs living room with many extra chairs available. I saw that they were using the outdoor table in the house, but just assumed it was a personal choice not to use the additional banquet table we had already provided. We have hosted a large Thanksgiving group at our home, so I know that there is adequate dining area for over 15 people when needed. Third, I went above and beyond to meet the needs of these guests. I was over at the home nearly every day providing them with items they requested and answering any questions they had. I don't generally have so many requests from guests, but I was happy each time to accommodate their needs and provide excellent service, which I now see went unnoticed. We rent our house very frequently and have really happy guests so I am devastated that this review would be so negative especially considering the guest who stayed after him left us an amazing review and booked with us again next year. I know its impossible to please everyone, but our house is super clean and we provide an excellent accommodation just like other reviewers have said.

Great location, comfortable place, awesome owner

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a clean comfortable house that’s conveniently located, with easy access to the city and the mountains, you found it.

We are already discussing reserving this house again next year so we definitely would recommend this property anyone else (just don’t take our week). Did I say it's clean!!! There is very easy access to the ski areas or the bus if you don't want to drive in the canyon. Plenty of shopping and restaurants very close. It was comfortable and spacious for the 2 families staying in the house. We felt like there was enough space to spread out and relax.

The owner is incredible! I asked if we could check-in a little early and was told that may be possible. We were getting the kids rentals when she sent a message that the house was ready. I also asked a long shot question if there was a coffee grinder. The house had a keurig machine and plenty of coffee and tea, but the owner sent me a text the first night that she was going to drop off a coffee pot after she got off work since she knew I brought my own coffee. As other reviews have stated, she went above and beyond and I appreciate an owner who does this.

As for the house, location is great. We found it very comfortable with plenty of space. The kitchen table seats 4 and we where 4 adults and 3 kids and we made it work. The kitchen looks small in the pictures and there was plenty of space to move around and prepare meals with several people in the kitchen. The beds were comfortable with plenty of sleeping area. The kids loved the game room and hot tub. I won't ding on needing a bathroom downstairs since I know it's coming and I hope it's there when we return next year.

There are a few things that can be improved. The living room could use a larger TV, but who goes to Utah to sit around and watch TV anyway. The kids did not complain about it. The skeeball is awesome and reminded me of my childhood on the Jersey shore, but the electronics did not work or we could not figure out how to turn it on - again the kids didn't care they played anyway and had fun. Having the garage available would be a plus, even if only for storing ski gear.

Convenient . Cozy . Cool.

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our family for Christmas. We loved the space and convenience to the ski resorts, shopping, and Salt Lake area. Two families of 5 fit comfortably. Only opportunities for improvement are the lack of a bathroom downstairs, which I know is in the works, and a bigger TV in the front room. Hard for larger groups to gather and watch TV.

Very appreciative that we could text the owner with any questions and they responded very quickly. Loved having a kitchen that was fully equipped.

Great!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family stay!! and our Thanksgiving Celebration. Nice quiet neighborhood. Game room was fun and a welcome relief for a crowd! Hot tub was excellent! Owner bent over backwards trying to fix an internet problem that we eventually discovered was an area problem...not the rental. Good location for shopping too. We would do it again!

Public transit does not run very late in Utah, but we are very close to bus stops and you can take Trax to visit downtown SLC. However, a rental car is highly recommended.
