About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 6) Apartment Near Temple Square

Located in the Capitol Hill/Marmalade District, the John Alford house (1868) is close to downtown, art and culture, restaurants, mountains, and is an ideal spot for any traveler / outdoor enthusiast. Only a five minute walk to Temple Square, a one minute walk to the Utah State Capitol building, and very close to the Salt Palace Convention Center, Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake International Airport, and a number of different ski resorts and hiking trails.

Built in 1868 and completely remodeled in the late 20th century, this home is older than the Salt Lake Capitol Building or the Salt Lake Temple! The home was originally built by John Alford, a British native, convert to Mormonism, and polygamist who migrated to Utah in 1865. This historic neighborhood is home to some of the most iconic and unique homes in Utah.

About Daniela

I grew up in the Czech Republic and moved to the United States when I was 19 years old. After spending my college years here and getting married at a young age, I moved my husband to Ireland for two years before moving back and settling down in Utah. I hope you fall in love with this state as much as I did.

My little family loves the outdoors - we try to spend as much time outside as possible. We have also enjoyed traveling, although our bucket list somehow seems to keep getting bigger.

As both a landlord and an experienced Airbnb traveler, I am a fair host who will try to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

Daniela purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Daniela chose Capitol Hill

Built in 1868 and completely remodeled in the late 20th century, this home is older than the Salt Lake Capitol Building or the Salt Lake Temple! The home was originally built by John Alford, a British native, convert to Mormonism, and polygamist who migrated to Utah in 1865. This historic neighborhood is home to some of the most iconic and unique homes in Utah.

What makes this apartment unique

Salt Lake City's Marmalade Hill Historic District was so named because early street names reflected the fruit-bearing plants and trees imported and planted there by its early residents. Marmalade is a small triangular area bounded by 300 North on the south, 500 North on the north, Center Street on the east, and Quince Street, the district's "Main Street", on the west. Settled in the early days of Salt Lake City, the Marmalade District is distinguished from other neighborhoods by steep, narrow, angular streets, mature landscaping and a surprising variety of vintage residential buildings. Within a single one-block area are almost as many styles of architecture as exist in the entire Avenues Historic District. Moreover, many buildings are considered to be among Utah's best examples of certain types of architecture.

Today, the neighborhood stands as a modest, well-preserved, monument to the skill, taste, and resourcefulness of its pioneer inhabitants.

great location in SLC

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and in a good location for downtown access. We (2 female friends) especially liked having 2 bedrooms separated by the bathroom. Beds were comfortable and having a place in the driveway to park our car off of the street was great.

It was very clean and in a great location within walking distance to temple square and city creek.

  • 4 of 5

The apt was very clean and the decor was nice. The location was great. We were a little disappointed that there was no television. Also, since there is only one bathroom it would have been nice to have had a mirror and desk or dresser in each bedroom to use to get ready when the bathroom was in use.

We loved our stay here! Everything was as described and shown in the pictures. Rooms were a great size, all the decor was adorable and welcoming. You couldn't ask for a better location! Right on Capitol Hill, we could walk to Temple Square and Downtown SLC. Such a cute place, highly recommend!!
