Hi, we are Massimiliano and Elettra, twins, grown up in Italy where we used to ski on the Alps. Almost ten years ago we moved to the United States. We now live in San Diego, California where we enjoy the beautiful weather of southern California. Elettra is a lawyer and Massimiliano just graduated from his Phd in computer science. When we miss the 4 seasons we grow up with in Italy we come to Idaho. We fell in love with Sun Valley the first time we came here. It resembles a lot the Alps, the mountains where we grow up skiing all our lives. The atmosphere of the village is magic.
Owner purchased this House in 2011
Why Owner chose Ketchum
We came to Sun Valley several times to ski and visit some friends that were living there. We loved the place so much that we finally decided to get a property out there. When we saw this house, we fell in love with it. It was old and beaten up but we loved its cozy look and its position. We remodeled it completely and made it our favorite retreat. We wanted a cozy and comfortable house where we can spend our vacation time. Being Italian we gave an Italian/ European touch to the house.
What makes this House unique
The house is close to the bus stop that let you quickly get to Warm Springs ski lodge or to Ketchum down town. The house is in a nice and quite neighborhood and it has a lot of privacy. This A frame is just lovely, it reminds us a lot of the houses in the Tyrol.

Clean and comfortable
There were 2 couples with each one having a child staying there. Layout was superb for giving people their own space at night. Will definitely look to book this again.
Nearly Just Like Home!
We've rented several vacation homes in the USA and in Europe. This house is the best so far. We were in town for the solar eclipse. Just 5 minutes drive away from the town, excellent mountain bike shops, and great restaurants (Sawtooth Club, A Taste of Thai, fantastic burritos at KB's, local ice cream at Leroy's). The house is inviting with very good quality finishes, very good quality fixtures, comfortable, solid furnishings, and very good quality amenities. Everything inside and out works. The owners clearly care that their guests' stay was as comfortable as possible. The kitchen had excellent knives (just like mine at home!), excellent flatware, and more than enough high quality plates, bowls, wine goblets, and tumblers for our extended family of 7. The kitchen was also helpfully stocked with dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sponges and brushes, and garbage bags. The bathrooms had plenty of good towels, large bottles of serviceable shampoo and body soap. The house had good spa towels, too. Really liked the large square table for 8 that encouraged conversation, the very comfortable wing chairs and couch in the living room. The neighborhood was packed with travelers for the eclipse, but it was as quiet as my neighborhood and home! Loved it!
The only caveats are few:
- the mattresses could be better;
- with 3 1/2 bathrooms, a blow dryer in each full bathroom would be helpful;
- the house was very clean, except that the bathroom ceiling fans had a thick layer of dust;
- the bedrooms could use decoration, maybe a painting above the bed.
But this is quibbling, as the house is the best we've rented so far. Most vacation rentals don't have the quality clearly evident in this house, from the fixtures and furniture to the forks and teaspoons.
Beautiful home and I really enjoyed the location.
We've stayed in this house twice now and absolutely love it! The house is nicely updated and has lots of space to spread out. It is clean and comfy and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need. The hot tub has worked great both times and is always clean and clear. The owners are great to work with and the check-out procedures couldn't be easier. Love it! Love it ! We will definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay.
Beautiful home in a very convenient and lovely location. Our family had a terrific time and the hosts were very accommodating. Hope to stay again some day!
