  • Great place, location and service!

    "I just finished a guys ski trips at this place and we all had a great time. The entire house appeared to be recently redone to a very high standard. The kitchen is amazing so we opted to cancel one of our dinner reservations so we could enjoy the gourmet kitchen. We were able to park four cars on the property. The single bed bedroom has a trundle bed. Its a prime location and an easy walk to the center of Park City and the Town lift. The booking agent was wonderful. Before our trip she sent us recommendations on restaurants, activities, transportation, grocery shopping services, etc. There were a few minor glitches with the hot tub and ice machine, but our agent and her assistant were able to immediately resolve those issues. All and all, we had an excellent experience that exceeded our expectations."

  • Awesome Condo in a great location!

    "This place is definitely on the higher-end of properties in Brian Head. The drive-way is extremely convenient to park in and is deep enough for two vehicles. Walking in and being able to take our boots off in the garage compared to a front door was an excellent bonus. It's definitely Ski-In but a bit of a Walk-Out in terms of getting to the slopes, however none of us complained; it was a short walk. The interior and all the rooms were CLEAN and extremely well appointed! Our group had 11 adults and we were able to fit everyone comfortably! The laundry machines were great, as well as the layout of the kitchen. The hot tub outside the balcony was pretty awesome! Can't complain about anything! The owners really take care of this place, and it shows."
