"The condo was terrific--just as pictured. John was very responsive, both to my emails in the planning stage, and to my calls & texts after arrival. He handles everything directly with the front desk whose people, in turn, are very responsive. Westgate is well located in the canyons, allowing easy access to Park City (PC) and Deer Valley. There are lots of amenities to enjoy at Westgate: the adult relaxation pool with waterfall, hot tub, sauna and steam room; two outdoor pools that are great for families; a great workout facility with lots of equipment (not busy early AM); lovely sauna (don't wait too late to make appointments); terrific steakhouse (The Edge--make a reservation!);and the Marketplace for light grocery shopping, snacks and wine/liquor. We also were included in planned activities for owners, including a wine and cheese get together and a cookout by the pool--unexpected perks as well as being greeted with fresh-baked cookies. If you're inclined to cook or eat in, a big dining table and full kitchen (plus a smaller kitchen in 2nd bedroom) make it easy. Coming from Texas in the summer, we enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony. Love that mountain air. Though we had a rental car, we took advantage of Westgate's shuttle service which took away the hassle of parking worries. The people in guest services, including the shuttle drivers, were very helpful to us. Kevin, head of guest services, was absolutely terrific in helping us map out some outings, recommending restaurants and more! Ask for him if he is still there when you visit. Awesome! It's a bit tricky learning your way around the condos, but the amazing staff, including housekeeping (so polite and friendly), are always around to assist. Be sure to follow John's excellent, detailed checkin instructions about where to park (Do NOT park in the underground for compact cars only) and other specifics about the condo, grocery shopping & more. Great directions for easy drive from SLC Airport to condo. Don't miss the drive to Sundance--beautiful--lunch in the Foundry Grill sitting outside (if the right season). There is a plaza behind John's condo--out the door by the Marketplace. There are shops and a gondola up the mountain where you can zipline & take a lift to a higher point for seeing a lake and short hikes. PC is terrific--great restaurants and shops. Don't miss Park Silly Market Sunday in summer months! Outdoor concert @ Deer Valley (Big Stars, Bright Nights) a MUST! Great condo and host!"
