    "We stayed there for our annual ski trip (4-9 Mar 14), and enjoyed it very much. Our group consisted of 4 adult males, so there were enough beds to go around. If your ski group is like ours and requires a bed for each person, then you know how difficult it is to find a place to fit the bill. There is a 5th bed in the loft, but it is not much use to an adult being it is hard to get too. The couch is plenty big enough, so if anyone else would've been there, the couch would've been a better choice for the night. The kitchen was well-stocked, and the hot tub came in handy after some hard days on the slopes. And there is plenty of room throughout the unit to spread out in. We didn't take advantage of the proximity of the bars and restaurants on Main Street to walk since we were wore out from skiing, but if you were up to it the option is there. We'd stay there again. Nice place."

  • Great for families - all the amenities of home, plus more!

    "We rented this condo for a month while waiting to close on our new house. We loved it! We have two small children and it was more than enough space, plus great amenities - lovely pool, quiet building, amazing views. My kids loved watching the birds in the trees, the hot air balloons overhead, splashing in the pool and nearby playground at the outlet mall (shopping just a short walk away!). The condo was clean, well-supplied and had everything we needed. Internet was fast, cable was nice for a quiet evening at home, and there were endless activities to enjoy in the Park City area. The owners were absolutely amazing! Initially they were traveling overseas and still responded very quickly to all questions! Overall, they were communicative, prompt and very kind! Would highly recommend this property!"

  • Great Getaway

    "We'll start by saying that the owners were great to work with and were very helpful. Their property Mgr. Aggie was also very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Couldn't ask for better. The description of this property was very accurate. Of the Park City area, this Condo is situated in a great location. It is located right in the middle of everything. This condo has a great deck with a BBQ. There's lots of lawn space for kids, dogs, or adults to play on. It is close to the bus stop and you may ride the bus anywhere within Park City. Its free and you'll avoid the hassles of parking. The kitchen is well stocked with all one needs to cook with if you don't go out. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. The activities and attractions are endless. We had a great time and are looking towards going back next year. We would and have already recommended this condo to family and friends. Thanks again, Tom and Jan"
