About the property

Hidden Treasure! Comfy & Cozy 2 Bed/1Ba Condo, Parking, WIFI-2 miles to Downtown

My cozy Salt Lake City condo is my trendy, fun, home-away-from-home. I hope it can be yours too. Please call or text me to discuss renting my property at.

When I travel, I want all the amenities of home. I’m a suburban girl with urban tastes, so I like to have easy access to the airport, easy access to downtown and a short drive to the best skiing in the world. I furnished my condo when I lived in California and am now a Salt Lake City resident.

This condo is conveniently nestled just 8 short minutes from the airport and just 2 miles from all the downtown activities. You can get settled in, right after arriving in town. Additionally, you will have gated parking for your vehicle and one dedicated space per unit. When you enter into the condo, you’ll feel right at home.

I’ve owned in this complex since 2007, serve on the board and know my neighbors well (and they know me!). I occupy the condo just upstairs from this unit so I am attuned to what’s going on not only with my guests, but also within the complex. You’ll find me out and about quite a bit, so I won’t hesitate to say hello if I see you in the parking lot or coming to/from the condo. You can feel comfortable knowing you'll have a friend (me) close by to help out and lend you a hand it you need it.

Newly updated, this unit has beautiful hardwood laminate floors, stunning granite counters and new kitchen cabinetry. The master bedroom has a comfortable Queen bed and a full size bed in the 2nd bedroom. In addition, there is a sofa sleeper in the living room that opens to a TwinX bed, which will fit one adult up to 5'6". Linens are included for all the beds and I provide towels for up to 4 people. We're also baby friendly! with a Pack 'n Play and high chair available to you, should you require them, if traveling with little ones.

I've opted to install efficient portable heaters to ensure my guests’ varied comfort in the winter. Over the years, I found the baseboards too difficult to regulate and opted to go with the portable heaters. In addition, as I love circulating air, I have installed beautiful, quiet 52" ceiling fans in the bedrooms and the dining area to keep air cool or warm air flowing nicely throughout the unit, in the winter, summer, spring or fall.

This condo includes an in-home washer and dryer, a fully stocked kitchen featuring a black electric range, dishwasher and refrigerator! Coffee maker, teapot, toaster, microwave oven and everything you need to cook and serve your delicious meals. Tupperware is also available for your use to pack leftovers in if you are on the run.

Enjoy having your privacy with all the amenities you need, without the high price of boring, expensive hotels. Definitely better priced than a hotel suite, with far more to offer! My dedicated cleaning lady keeps my condos very clean with professional pride.

Minutes to downtown Salt Lake City, this is an ideal location. Not "IN" downtown but just a short 2 mile drive, you’ll have access to the best dining Salt Lake City offers, great museums, grocery stores and shopping at the City Creek Center. Oh! and a Trader Joe's is just a few miles right up the road. YAY!

If you are here for business, you are just 2.33 miles/8 minutes from the Salt Palace Convention Center and have quick access to the I-80, I-215 and I-15 freeways. If you aren't interested in renting a car, no worries. A 10 min taxi from the airport, and you can catch the 516 bus around the corner and it takes you just a block from the Salt Palace or other convenient, downtown locations. Maps of the bus route and local ski areas are available in my directories located in the unit.

Whether it be for a sporting event, business meetings, a conference, LDS activites or Temple, these affordable condos are just a quick 10 minutes from all the downtown activities. For skiers looking to save some money, it’s just a 20 minute drive to the best snow on earth at Snowbird & Alta, Brighton & Solitude. Or for more winter action, just a 30 minute drive to Park City, Deer Valley & the Canyons. Snow Basin and Powder Mountain are just up the I-15 too (see my Ogden rental for these ski areas). Summertime brings great hiking, biking, fishing or day trips to Utah’s world-famous canyons.

About Lisa MacDonald

I am a California native who moved to Salt Lake City in 2012. I fell in love with the area and this rental was my second home. I'm thrilled and proud to share it with others who come into town.

Lisa MacDonald purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lisa MacDonald chose Salt Lake City

The location of this unit is close to the airport and easy access to the i-80 freeway. I personally love that literally in 8 minutes (I've timed it) I am from the rental lot to my condo parking space. I love that I walk in and everything I need is there. All I need to do is turn on my laptop and I'm ready to get online with WIFI, turn on the TV to watch my favorite shows on HBO or pop in a DVD. The condo is so close to great restaurants, the LDS Temple, Children's Museum, theaters, the Gateway, City Creek and then, it's just 20 minutes from Snowbird! I love this condo so much, I decided to get another one and live in it so I can rent this one out to traveler’s like you. I’m now close to my guests, providing convenient access, while enjoying the location for myself!

What makes this condo unique

The best benefit is the location. Some may prefer the sleepy suburbs, but you won’t have the easy and quick access to downtown or the airport. Some prefer up by the University, and hey…no problem if you want to deal with student traffic, the VA hospital and plethora of businesses conjoining in that area. My neighborhood isn’t in the quiet suburbs. It’s 2 miles from the city center; away from the congestion in a residential neighborhood, but you'll have close access to where you want to go. It's a diverse, safe and family-oriented neighborhood that I've been a part of for 10 years. I personally love it and will do my best to make you feel like my place is your home away from home.

Car: recommended

This condo is a corner unit in a medium sized condominium complex. The grounds are kept nicely and with a car, you are just minutes from anything you need; grocery, gas, restaurants, convention center or downtown events. Just 5 miles/8 min from the SLC Airport and 3 minutes to downtown SLC. It's a great location to get in and out of the city or be near downtown, if you spend your time there.

Great little find

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a perfect fit for our family. We flew in and like she said, got to the condo in no time. Close to downtown where we needed to be for a wedding. Highly recommend. Lisa is a great host and made us feel right at home.

Exactly what we expected.

  • 4 of 5

Better than a hotel room. Cute decor. Small for a condo but she points that out multiple times and does a great job with furnishings to make it cozy and not feel small. Close to many things. Not the best or worst neighborhood

Clean, comfortable bed, not a good winter stay

  • 3 of 5

The place was overall ok.



Comfortable beds (memory foam toppers)


Lots of movies

Plenty of cooking utensils and supplies



Covered parking


-Used items left behind. Opened partially used food in the fridge and cabinet was really weird. Also there are open used items in bathroom. I never used them obviously but my mom came and stayed the night and I didn't warn her. She ended up using the used toothpaste. That's just not something you want to reuse after someone else.

-internet is not always reliable. You share between 3 condos so sometimes it's slow or down. As with any internet soemtimes the router needs to be rebooted. But because the 3 condos share, the router is located in the bottom condo. So unless those renters are home at the moment to reset it, you're out of luck.

-my biggest complaint is heating, or lack there of. I didn't realize when I booked the place October-Christmas that there is no heat in the apartment. The only source of heat is plug in oil heaters. I asked the landlord and she said they were absolutely safe. I told her I was worried ahout my dog being home alone and either being cold, or being unsafe with unattended heaters. She said it was absolutely fine. I read up online and also contacted some friends of the family (electrician and heating/ac pros). They told me that the instructions that come with these products say DO NOT LEAVE ON UNATTENDED OR WHILE SLEEPING. They said that these may be ok to leave on, but to check the outlet and the cord to see if it gets hot after having on for awhile because it really depends on the electrical system of the apartment. So I did and things seemed ok. But just because I was taking precautions didn't mean that any of the other tenants were taking precautions. And if they are told they are super safe, then how worried are they? There are no directions left on safe use of the heaters. I knew not to plug them into a surge protector, but does everyone? I came home one day from running a 10 min errand, my dog had knocked a blanket off the bed and it was laying very close to heater. Didn't leave them on again. Also I could only have one on at a time or it would trip the fuse, and you must turn off before using a hair dryer or you will trip the fuse. This was such a pain.

In summary I think this place would be a good place to stay, in the non cold months. Owner was quick to respond.

Owner's Response: It's always disappointing to hear that a guest experience isn't what I strive to provide. I have been renting my condos for years and have never had one issue with my heaters. I live in these condos and use these same oil-filled heaters in my unit every winter, and provide them in all the units I rent. They are indeed very safe and far better than the inefficient and noisy baseboards that often get detached and damaged by guest luggage, and climbing children. They are well-insulated oil-filled heaters; not the old, open-faced electric heaters. And like anything on the market today, of course there will be a CYA disclaimer. I’ve actually removed the note now to not use the blow dryer when operating the heaters as they have proven NOT to blow any fuses when all are in use. This is only a 620 sq foot condo and the heaters used are rated for not only the entire condo, but certainly the individual rooms they are provided in. The only instructions necessary are to simply use common sense as you would in your own household. As far as internet. I pay for Blast, which is the highest speed you can buy through Comcast. Just like your home, routers cycle and there may be an intermittent lag, which is highly rare. This single router is adequate for a large, 3 story home. So certainly, operating 2 TVs in these condos is not a stress. This guest notified me once, and when I checked in with her, the Internet was back on. Re: Food and toiletries. The refrigerators are always cleaned out and sanitized. We may leave some condiments in the refrigerator and many have been grateful not to have to purchase these items. The food that is left in the cabinet would only be unopened, packaged foods left by previous guests for others to enjoy; no open packages are left to eliminate issues with pests. If you don’t want them, ignore them or throw it out; I won’t know either way. Further, the toiletries in the bathroom are also left by guests, and the kotex, toilet paper, wrapped toothbrush and toothpaste is left by me, for those guests who forget to pack them. If you don’t want to use what I provide, then feel free to buy your own and not complain about what is provided for free. Many guests have been grateful for the thoughtfulness, as I am when guests thoughtfully leave usable items behind for others.
