Brian Head condo description
Aloha Bear is a new, beautifully made condo in a very exclusive property with many upgrades only 2 minutes from the lifts. You enter the main floor of the condo from your private 2 car garage on the same level as the main floor. No hauling ski equipment, luggage or groceries up & down common stairs or in the snow. Downstairs is a second bedroom and bath, great for the kids or another couple.
We went out of way to make our little retreat comfortable. It is called Aloha Bear for Hawaiian hospitality and bears which personify strength and go with the flow of the seasons. We have a full kitchen with many amenities including an espresso maker & Hawaiian coffee. Aloha Bear also has a rice cooker & chop sticks for our fellow rice eaters.
The extras: The bedrooms have great beds and linens to make your sleeping a pleasure. The living room has 3 recliners, a gas fire place and a 42 inch LCD HD TV and cool unique handmade furniture so you can relax after a fun day on the slopes in the winter or day trips to the monuments & festivals in the summer. The master bedroom has a beautiful Southwest king size bedroom set with a CD IPod docking station and a jetted tub in the bathroom. The downstairs bedroom has a full and twin bunk bed with a 32 inch LCD HD TV and its own full bathroom. Full sized front loading washer and dryer add to your convenience.
Lots of plates, glasses, wine glasses, & cooking utensils including a good selection of pots and pans, baking pans for muffins, cakes etc. A nice, fairly quiet dishwasher. Water and ice through the door.
Skiing & sight seeing: Coming from Hawaii, we love being tourists on the mainland. We like the Southwest history, native people culture and fabulous geology. Having enjoyed skiing many places, we fell for Brian Head because the snow was great whenever we went there (including the marginal times), skiing was great for families; lots of choices for those who don’t ski all that often as well some challenging stuff for those adventurous types, a mellow vibe, friendly people, the boarders respectful, the lift tickets are affordable and to top it off it is in Utah's 'color country' and only 3 hours from Las Vegas.
What we didn't realize was how great it was in the summer. Cedar Breaks Monument is only about 5 minutes away by car in summer. It is a spectacular photographers dream with ranger lead snow shoe walks along the rim in June (snow dependent). Other monuments within day trip range are Zion, Kolab Canyons, & Parowan Gap. The Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City is a real treat in an intimate outdoor theater.
Summer sports: Cedar City is becoming known for its cultural appreciation of the performing arts in theater and music with lots of fun festivals. On the Solstice, the Parowan Gap, only a half hour away, celebrates one of the only known natural solstice and celestial landmarks, long recognized by native peoples traveling though this area who left hundreds of fantastic petroglyphs. Brian Head becomes a mountain bike, hike, & ATV destination in the summer with really nice lakes for fishing close by.
A stay at Aloha Bear, is a bit of an upgrade from the usual ski condos. You will feel pampered and relaxed. The kids can have their own space downstairs or you can enjoy quality family time all together in the comfy living room. In the winter, it is so easy to get from the living room to the lifts and back again. In the summer, it is such a cool comfortable retreat from sight seeing in the desert or surrounding mountains. We have cable and private WiFi, no phone though.

Aloha Bear Condo
Aloha Bear Condo
We had the pleasure of renting this unit for my 50th Birthday getaway. The location was superb, the decor, furnishings and overall condition of this unit is by far the best we have stayed in, and we have been coming to Brianhead for over 15yrs. The complex is one of the newest on the mountain. It had a nice 2 car garage that let directly into the unit. Terri who handled all the booking and payment instructions was so nice, and kept in touch frequently. Kim the local contact person on the mountain lives down the street so she was readily available, and has a wealth of knowledge about the activities and sites to visit on or near the resort. I would highly recommend to all types of vacationers. In winter time close to both Sides of mountain / lifts, in summertime great location for hikers/ Mt. bikers, or Vegas people wanting to get away from the heat. WE WILL DEFINITELY RENT THIS UNIT MANY MORE TIME IN FUTURE. DD

Luxury Accommodations at Budget Prices
The Aloha Bear was perfect for our weekend getaway. It was priced competitively with the much older units at Brian Head, but came with all of the perks of a brand new, upscale complex. Surprisingly high end appliances and a well-stocked kitchen (key for those with families who like to save money by dining in). Much more (and nicer) than the typical “service for four” you find at many vacation rentals. Beds (especially master) were top notch, including pillows and linens. Decor was thoughtful, appropriate, and not overly “cabin-ish.” Modern furniture, while still keeping with the mountain feel. WiFi was a definite bonus. Great location - walkable to Giant Steps (though not ski in/ski out, which may be preferred by some). Very quiet complex. Obviously habited, but not a peep heard from our neighbors. Seemed to be a lot of owner occupied units (open garage doors showed evidence of permanent residents), which made for friendly and knowledgeable neighbors. Be sure to read the house rules and tips & tricks, as they contain some very useful information. Owner was very responsive and available during our reservation process. Thankfully, we didn’t have the need to contact her during our stay, though we had several forms of contact provided.

We have been to Brian Head several years and always explored different types accommodating hotels, resorts et., this time we struck gold! This place was awesome! The ONLY hiccup was the last night when someone was up stairs settling in we'll past midnight. They were quite finally around 1 AM. The other two days were very peaceful and was able to relax. Wonderful condo and would go back again!

This condo lived up to its description in every way. The great room (kitchen, dining area, & living area all together) was wonderful, and the beds and bathrooms were great as well. I would highly recommend this condo to anybody who was looking for a place to stay with five or less people. We had five people and absolutely loved it!

About: We live on Kauai in paradise so we have to have something special to go to, hence Aloha Bear. I rent our family's properties as vacation rentals in Hanalei. We like the city Vegas rush for a night or so after flying from rural Kauai, then enough of that and back to nature in the mountains.
Why Brian Head:
We have skied all over the place. We really like the laid back vibe at Brian Head. The property was new, cool looking & in a great location close to both lifts, not far off the main road so good for driving out in the snow but not on the main road so nice and quiet. WE LOVE the private two car garage on the same level as the main floor.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The private two car garage on the same level as the main floor is very unique compared to any other ski condos in Brian Head. No schlepping equipment!
