Very nice and cozy. Very much needed time away.
More than sufficient for our needs and being able to bring our pet was wonderful.
Thank you for your kind review. I’m so glad you both and your puppy enjoyed your stay!
Beautiful location, nice accommodations
The best place about Josie's place is the location - SO pretty! The condo is very nice too and perfect for what we wanted. The kitchen is very nice with nice granite countertops and appliances. There's a nice wood burning fire in the living room. The bedroom is a loft with a moderately comfortable mattress and pillows. My biggest complaint is that, since the bedroom is a loft, SO much light shines into the bedroom in the morning. So bring an eye mask if you are sensitive to light. The other minor issue we had is that we arrived at 11PM at night, and the unit was very hard to find in the dark. The numbering system of the condo units doesn't make any sense, so I would've appreciated it if Josie sent better instructions to find the place (enter on street X, turn left of street Y, then make left a turn before you get to the stop sign, etc). Other than that, we had a great time, and I would definitely recommend this place. Wonderful value.
Thank you for the feedback, and you’re right, Sapphire in general is not the kind of place easy to navigate late at night, and our neighborhood “The Woods” although is right off Highway 64, would have a been a lot easier to find during the day.
Wasn’t much of a vacation
Overall the place is nice! We are 2 elderly sisters That arrived on Monday in the 40’s/50’s at night and were without heat until Wednesday. There was a nest of yellow jackets under the house that kept coming in the house and Josie knew they were there. We killed hundreds of them inside the home. My sister is highly allergic to them. Josie sent handy man with can of bug spray which only made them mad and worse. Housekeeping needed attention. Needless to say we won’t be going back.
Dear Ladies, I’m so sorry you did not fully enjoy your stay! I paid premium wages to the handyman for an emergency call, since the Trane repairman could not guarantee same day service. As it turned out, the AC/heater was not broken, and the handyman just had to show you how to adjust the thermostat. He also sprayed for yellow jackets under the outdoor deck, and said if you kept the sliding glass doors closed the insects wouldn’t be able to come inside and the heating system would work more efficiently. You wanted to stay an extra day, which as I said I would have been glad to let you have it for free, however, new vacationers were arriving in the afternoon. I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting you but since you mentioned you are two elderly sisters traveling together, you should consider staying in a hotel, where you can get the immediate and individual attention you need.
Quiet, peaceful location.
I enjoyed my stay at this condo. I took daily walks in the quiet neighborhood. Overlooking the balcony was a small pond. The kitchen included pots and pans for cooking which was nice. If you're a late sleeper bring an eye mask for sleeping in, the loft bedroom had many high windows that let in lots of sunlight. Josie, the owner, was very responsive when questions arose. She also emailed a newsletter showing what was going on in the area for the week. I would stay here again.
It’s thoughtful vacationers such as you that make renting my property a pleasure, instead of a job. Come back anytime!
Well stocked condo with great kitchen in lovely area.
We travel with our dog, Brady, and was so happy to have such a nice condo with best kitchen right in Sapphire Valley. This condo was very homey and very clean with what looked like new flooring. It had an upstairs, very pleasant, spacious bedroom. We overlooked a small pond and felt quite private with our little balcony. Television reception was excellent upstairs and downstairs. Sapphire Valley is a terrific place that has so much for every age. For just $2 a day, you are entitled to pools, spa, tennis, etc. There is an executive golf course to play with discount. Owners very attuned to making their guests comfortable.
Quiet . . . Green . . . Restful
What a wonderful location! Such a quiet, restful, beautiful community. Our townhome was spotless. Everything one could ask for in a home away from home!
