great place - disapointing hidden fees

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here with 3 families over NYE. Very quiet, peaceful part of Sun Valley with great access to Baldy.

One nit: the owner withheld our cleaning deposit saying the kitchen was unusually dirty. This is ridiculous - we cleaned way beyond the normal for a vacation rental, including emptying everything from the refrigerator (which painfully meant throwing away unopened items). He also accused us of taking a weather clock. We don't need a weather clock - we live in San Francisco and the weather really never changes. If he wanted more money for the rental, he should have raised the rates, not nickel & dime over bogus charges.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you fell that way. It was clearly spelled out in the rental contract how the home / kitchen is to be left This is the first time we have withheld a fee and charged for a missing item. With all the members in your group/kids it is hard to say what happened to the weather station. But it was their at checkin.

The house was so amazing, it had everything we needed to make our vacation just perfect! We would stay there again anytime. We loved having the big grassy areas for the kids to run around in, and it was so quiet and peaceful, just wish we could have stayed longer.

We had three families and this was just perfect! Everyone had a bed and plenty of room to hang out. The owner was always available with any questions we had! I highly recommend this home to large families! Thank you!!!

Best ever

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasant surprise to find everything in working order and so well furnished from A to Z. Unfortunately, so often one arrives to a rented vacation home to find it barely resembles the photos and it is in anything but working order. Should we have the opportunity again, I definitely look forward to renting your home for our stays in SV. Thank you!

Outstanding Home for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Our annual ski group rented this home for our trip to Sun Valley. The home is absolutely beautiful and well appointed. It easily accommodated our group for dinners and hanging out telling ski stories. Located a couple of minutes from the Warm Springs parking lot and only 8 miles from the hot springs to relax after a day on the slopes. No doubt we would look to rent this again when we return to Sun Valley. Would also be great for Summer!
