  • Amazing time in Hope!

    "This property was fantastic and we had a wonderful vacation here. The condo is perfectly set up to make you feel right at home the moment you arrive. It has everything you need. The temperature outside ranged from hot to freezing during our two week stay yet inside was always cozy and comfortable. The view is unbelievable. It would be easy to spend time doing nothing but sitting on the deck. I will be back for sure!"

  • Amazing family vacation

    "We just got back from what we consider our best family vacation thus far! The owners were amazing to work with, very personable and all around friendly, actually come to think of it that was our experience everywhere we went in town! The town is great, it's small but has fabulous restaurants and great shopping. The town seems to have a collective emphasis on local, sustainability, and green/carbon foot print. Bikes almost outnumber cars, ingredients at restaurants are as local as possible, and there are innumerable awesome biking/running trails. That being said this specific condo has everything you'd need to enjoy it (including 3 adult bikes--no helmets). Our kids (ages 2 and 4) especially loved the grounds to roam around on, the pool, the dock by the lake, and the trees to climb. Inside their favorite was the loft. The kitchen is well enough equipped for cooking **except** spices. If you like to cook, please pack spices/pantry essentials you don't want to have to (re)purchase. I had to dock one star based on the condition of the outdoor space (actually I think it's only worth 1/2 a star, but this only lets me work in whole star increments). Its got a beautiful view, and it's got great bones….that being said the deck it's self needs to be refinished, or better yet refurbished with a bigger patio area. Some of the neighboring condo's have done so, and it looked great (more outdoor seating, a stone patio area in front of the deck, maybe even a fire pit). Oh and the pictures of the pool make it look like there may be a hot tub…if it is, it wasn't turned on, because it was the same temp as the pool (which it's self was a very nice temperature, but a hot tub would've been clutch). Overall we will stay again, and LOVED our time there, at the condo, in the city and of course a couple days at Silverwood. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, although families with somewhat older kids (7+) would probably enjoy the whole experience even more than us (stand up paddle boarding, boating, biking, hiking, Silverwood etc). That being said we're not gonna wait that long for a return visit!"

  • Perfect in every way!

    "We rented this beautiful condominium as our home base during our daughter's wedding and could not have been more pleased! Well appointed, clean, spacious (I would count it as 4 bedrooms rather than 3!), terrific furnishings and finishes and in the perfect location! We could not have asked for a more ideal "home". The owner was easy and pleasant to work with. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

  • Nice, clean, good value

    "This condo is just as it is represented - nice location close to everything. The Owner checked in several times to make sure we everything was OK. This place is squeaky clean and attractively priced compared to other options in the Sun Valley area."
