Clean and tidy, well equipped kitchen, very nice accommodations. Very happy overall, right price, great view. Still unsure of where to get firewood for the fireplace.

The condo was very clean, and comfortable. The condo is real roomy, so fitting all 8 of us this unit was no problem. We go every year on a Family vacation, and this condo fits us perfectly. The views are so beautiful it is just simply breath taking. whether you stand at the kitchen sick, or you are sitting in the living room you can see the entire mountain range. The front of this condo is almost all glass, so you do not have to look through a small window. The people that run this condo are so nice, And the owner is great. What more could you ask for. Well you could ask for a hot tub, or a pool. And guess what this condo has both. WOW!. We loved our vacation... Thanks for the memories...

After talking with the owner of this property, we were very disappointed upon arrival. The place is outdated and is in desperate need of updating. It needs to be painted, appliances need to be updated, pots, pans and utencils need to be replaced and it needs a good cleaning. The bathroom liner in the guest bathroom was molded. Pink mold was around the tub in the master bedroom. Lamp shades in the living room were frayed. Closet doors were off the track in the master bedroom. Everything was dusty. It really has not been kept up. Upon arrival, we discovered that the dryer was not working propertly. You could dry your clothes, but they would get caught in it and either burn or have a black mark on it. When I contacted the owner, he advised that he had sent someone out to fix it, but kids were there alone and he would not go in. We arrived on Saturday, and I called on Sunday to ask about this (a phone call letting us know would have been nice). When the maintenance man got there, parts had to be ordered, so it wasn't until Wednesday before the dryer was fixed. My initial call to the owner on Sunday was to find out how to get internet access as we were told we would be able to, however, it was a dial up and the owner thought we should put in our username and password to access. I found it hard to believe that no other guests had children that didn't want to get on the intranet. I suggested he get a general username and password. The owner asked how we liked the place and I told him my complaints. He wanted to know why I hadn't contacted him and I told him that I felt he probably already knew. He immediately asked if he could have the cleaning lady come out and clean the place and have someone come and clean the carpet, but we declined as we felt it would be inconvenient to us. We left a day early and contacted the owner so he could have someone come in and clean the place before the next guests arrived. I called the next week to ask the occupants about the place and they said it appeared clean to them. I e-mailed the owner after I trip regarding our deposit and asked that he compensate us for the condition of the condo and and he stated that he would give us a deal next year on one of his rentals. It is a roomy condo, just not what the owner had relayed to us. Pool was very nice - we seemed to have it by ourselves most of the time.

This is my favorite place to stay in the mountains. The view is excellent, the owner is the best. You can get to this condo from the by-pass. This makes your trip up the mountain faster. If you want good views, and a nice clean place to stay you will want to rent this. The owner has always been helpful. These condo's are so nice. The pool is great for the children, and adults alike.
