"We visit SV a few times per year and have stayed everywhere from Hailey, to Ketchum to Elkhorn. We love Elkhorn because it is close to downtown but you don't pay downtown rates. We usually come during ski season, but summers are gorgeous in SV so we decided to take our 2 yr old and another couple for the 4th of July week to SV this year.
This condo was very roomy- the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the unit, which felt like we all had our own space. It doesn't hurt that they are both master suites so they both had large bathrooms and closets. We stayed in the "true master" (king size bed) and the room was so large, we fit the king bed, a double bed (air mattress) and a pack and play easily in the room. The air matttress was already there, so if you don't mind sleeping on one and sharing a bedroom, you could easily sleep more people.
Things that we loved:
-Covered parking: this is clutch in both summer and winter. Easily located next to the elevator for hauling all your stuff to and from the car.
-Wifi- We got horrible cell phone reception in the condo (t-mobile) but they have wifi so we didn't have any issues. Also, we got reception as soon as we were out of the building.
-Walkable to pool: there are 2 pools in Elkhorn, and this condo was right across the street from the "adult" pool which had kid hours, so we spent most of our time there. There is also a "kid" pool with a lifeguard that you can drive too, but it's not too far and worth the drive if you are planning on going for longer days (diving board, spray park, volley ball court, toddler splash pool etc).
-Outdoor deck & BBQ: we ate all our meals out on the deck and enjoyed the sunshine every day (but it's not very useful in the winter months ;)
-Washer/dryer in the unit: if you have small children you know this is clutch.
-Owners: it was really easy working with the owners- who happen to live close enough to us in Seattle that I was able to meet up with them before we headed to SV. Very nice, went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay (even left us a bottle of wine).
Good to have but didn't use:
-Right on the bus line that runs to town/ski lifts every 30 mins
-Glof course & Tennis court access in the Elkhorn community
-No TV in the guest bedroom: totally no big deal as TV is not really the point of vacation. We just happened to be trying to watch world cup coverage from bed :)
We would totally stay here again and are already looking to book our trip this winter."
