About Adele

We are a family who all enjoy winter sports and the outdoors We hail from the UK but have fallen in love with the 'Old West'! Mike is the author of three historical frontier fiction novels and Adele is a trustee of an animal welfare charity. Our children are avid skiers, passionate about American football and have always enjoyed the multitude of activities that Livingston has to offer. With white water rafting, floating the Yellowstone, horse riding, mountain biking and fly fishing there is never a dull moment!

Adele purchased this house in 2008

Why Adele chose Livingston

Livingston is a unique town with its proximity to Yellowstone National Park but the town has so much more to offer. It has its own historic downtown, surrounded by three fabulous mountain ranges and the Yellowstone River runs right through the heart of the town. Our home gives us easy access to Bozeman and the wonderful ski resort of Bridger Bowl, The Beartooth Scenic Highway, Paradise Valley and also a scenic 45 minute drive to Yellowstone National Park with year round access through the Northern gate!

What makes this house unique

With easy access to the I 90 and just a 35 minute drive to Yellowstone International Airport you can be sitting on the deck surrounded by spectacular views in no time at all.

Great winter vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Adele and Mike's home was the perfect base for our winter family vacation. The home is beautiful and fully stocked with all kinds of local information and plenty to do. Our family came from all over the country and we couldn't have asked for a better place to call home base. Adele was extremely helpful and attentive, the home is beautiful and the scenery spectacular. We couldn't have asked for more!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Heidi for the wonderful review. It was great to know that you all had such a fabulous family vacation. We are looking forward to trying the snow coach trip to Yellowstone that you all enjoyed. It is such a magical place to visit at any time of year but we particularly enjoy the drive through the Lamar Valley in the winter. We hope you visit again soon!

We arrived to this great property. Easy to find from airport and daily travels. Home was exactly if not better than described. Had group of 9 and home was laid out so everyone had a different area of house. Each couple had own attached bathroom. Kitchen was well stocker with quality ware. We used the programmable crock pot so when returning from day at yellowstone, dinner was ready! Explored Livingston and Bozeman area as well! Had more to do than we had time! We will return for future trips! Saw more animals this week than visit to a zoo!

Owner's Response: You all managed to pack so much into your stay at Hunkapi! I too find the crock pot useful especially when we head to the local ski resort for a day. We come home to a wonderful hot meal and we can then enjoy time together replaying the ski footage. We hope to have you all visit again soon.

Perfect Home, Beautiful location and Wonderful Host!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have been happier with our choice to stay at Adele's beautiful and welcoming home. Where to start to describe how much we loved this place? My husband and I arrived with our daughter(24) and her husband(26), our son (21) and youngest daughter (16). We offered the upstairs master to our daughter and son-in-law and they loved the breathtaking views out the windows. My husband and I selected the newer addition master bedroom with gorgeous tile work in the bath, huge walk-in closet and stunning views out the patio doors. Youngest daughter selected the other smaller "master" bedroom that was also in the newer addition and had an equally beautiful bathroom and with a bigger slate shower. Son took one of the first floor bedrooms with a bathroom across the hall. This left two bedrooms that we didn't even need - SO much room for everybody!

The living room was huge with large TV (watched the Olympics while doing puzzles) and set off by the soaring windows looking out toward the mountains. My husband is the gourmet cook in the household and, after renting many VRBO homes in the past, he was practically giddy with the quality of the cookware, knives and spices that were available to us. Even quality paper towel. Thanks Adele!

The dining space was also huge and allowed for bountiful meals and bustling game time. We LOVED the pool table and used it frequently for games of Red Ball since none of us are good at pool. Probably the most laughter during the entire week occurred around that pool table! The best feature of the home is probably the deck and the beautiful sunsets and sunrises that it afforded. The deck faces east toward the mountain valley that cradles the road leading to Yellowstone's North gate. Sunsets are also enjoyed, however, for the dazzling display of light upon the mountains and any clouds that act as canvas as the sun descends behind the house.

You might think that having a host across the ocean may be a liability but Adele emailed and even called me frequently as we got close to the date. While there, the fridge starting humming and Adele had her handyman stop by who stopped it right away. Easy! Adele made great recommendations for day trips to the park, restaurants and even a ranch that allowed us to ride like the cowboys. After the traffic in the park on three of our days, it was great to return to our spacious and peaceful retreat each evening.

We hope to return someday!!!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We selected Hunkapi following an arduous search process and couldn't be more pleased with our decision. This is a five-star accommodation (see previous reviews) offering comfort, Big Sky seclusion and more than enough room and privacy for larger gatherings. It's remote enough to see the Milky Way on a clear night, close enough to civilization to make a quick run into town for essentials, and centrally located for easy day trips to Yellowstone National Park, Bozeman and other must-see/do Montana-vacation attractions. If Hunkapi is for you, drive slowly on the gravel road leading up Wineglass Mountain to/from this wonderful retreat, leave only footprints as you explore the wilds of Montana, and create the memories you'll cherish for a lifetime thanks to this superbly managed and meticulously cared-for VRBO. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Dear Cliff and Family Thank you so much for staying at Hunkapi. It has been a pleasure helping plan your family vacation. It was wonderful to see the photographs of you all enjoying your time in Montana. Come back soon there is so much more to discover as the children grow older!

We stayed at this property in August for my sons wedding ! The whole family came, 7 adults and 5 children. This house was PERFECT for what we needed. It was a short car ride to Livingston, but we had the privacy of family time at this spot. The beds were VERY comfortable! Everything worked, the kitchen was a great gathering place. I can't say enough about what a fantastic time we had there ! And the view from this home was nothing short of SPECTACULAR!! I have found the right spot should we have a family reunion sometime in the future in Montana.

A great House on the hill

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything one would expect a “House on the hill” in Livingston Montana would look like. From the fully furnished kitchen to the pool table and hot tub what more do you need. The 7 bedrooms rooms were just what we need for the 7 fly fishermen who stayed there. The furnishings were impeccable and the view of Livingston is worth the price alone. I am sure Adele has missed her calling as she is a great hostess and interior designer.

Having enjoyed the house before, in 2014 and now in 2016, we plan on renting it again for 2017.

Thanks Adele for an outstanding rental.

We’ll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gene for your wonderful review! We look forward to having you stay again next year. As usual we will be able to offer you the discount for our returning guests. We hope the fly fishing conference was a huge success and that you managed to enjoy some down time fishing the Yellowstone.
