About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

WHAT EVERYBODY HOPES FOR IN A SUN VALLEY VACATION RENTAL (but few are lucky enough to find!)
No matter what the reason, or the season, everything you come to Sun Valley for are all just a few steps away or a short ride on the free bus that stops just a few steps from your door when you choose this condo.
Located in Warm Springs, the most beloved neighborhood in the Sun Valley/Ketchum area, you will be just a few blocks from Ernest Hemingway's final and most cherished home. Hemingway chose Warm Springs for many reasons, but most of all because it is at the nexus between the the cultural amenities of a World-Class Resort and the Wild, Natural Beauty of Idaho that he so loved. This very clean, extremely comfortable, and exceptionally appealing condo is located at the very heart of all the best that Warm Springs, Ketchum, and Sun Valley has to offer.

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! (It just doesn’t get any better than this!)
SKIERS WILL LOVE being able to just cross the street, step on a bus, and be dropped off within a few steps of the fastest lift to the top of Bald Mountain in just four minutes. So close, yet just far enough away to be out of the reach of Baldy's chilly shadow and the irritating, night-long, roar of snow-making and grooming machines.
SUMMER HIKERS AND BIKERS will be blessed with virtually unlimited trails within the spectacular Sawtooth National Forest just a block away, as well as 78 acres of gorgeous open space bordered on one side by Bald Mountain and a beautiful trout stream on the other. Plus, the 38-mile-long Wood River paved bike/pedestrian path is just out front.
DO YOU THRIVE ON DINING, SHOPPING, ART, golf, night-life, fitness, and cultural events? From here you can walk or take a short bus ride to within a block or two of most restaurants, shops, galleries, golf courses, the fabulous new Wood River YMCA, as well as the many cultural events that take place throughout the year, all without the stress of dealing with traffic or parking hassles.
WHAT EVER YOU VISIT SUN VALLEY FOR it's all nearby and easy to get to even without a car when you stay at this convenient and centrally-located, yet peaceful and relaxing condo!

SPACIOUS, CHARMING, and COMFORTABLE
An open floor plan with walls of windows and high, sloping ceilings give a spacious, bright, and cheerful feeling by day. By night it has a cozy and romantic atmosphere with a real wood-burning fireplace as the focal point of the living room. You'll feel right at home with its charming and tasteful decor and extremely comfortable furnishings.

HUGE BALCONY with FABULOUS VIEWS & TOTAL PRIVACY
Nestled in the treetops, above all nearby residences, you'll enjoy total privacy as well as expansive views of breath-taking mountain scenery whether inside the condo or out on its huge, comfortably furnished private balcony. The extended roof line keeps the balcony, as well as the private walkway to the street, protected from rain, snow, and ice for year-round comfort and safety. Stretch out and relax on the cushioned deck furniture in cool shaded comfort during summer or bask in the soothing warmth of the sun in winter.

EXCELLENT, FULL-SIZED KITCHEN; PLUS DINING WITH A VIEW
The well-designed and fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher make culinary creation and clean-up a breeze. There's also a wonderful gas BBQ on the deck. Easily prepare a home-cooked meal or have one delivered from one of the many excellent restaurants and then enjoy it with a view and ambiance that can't be out-done by the best restaurants in town.

SUPER-COMFORTABLE BEDROOM + CUTE, CLEAN BATH
The bedroom is handsomely furnished in solid oak with plenty of drawers and a luxurious new memory-foam queen mattress that will ensure a restful ending to your fun-filled days. The immaculate bathroom is well-stocked with towels, plus a hairdryer.

TOP-FLOOR ADVANTAGES WITH GROUND-FLOOR CONVENIENCE!
Although it enjoys an ideal top-floor-corner location, access to this condo is just as easy as a ground-floor unit. No hassles with stairs or elevators because the building is built into a hillside with private parking, a bus stop, and a multitude of recreational opportunities just a few steps away without flights of stairs to climb.

NO CAR? NO PROBLEM!
You can easily walk or pedal into town, or just hop on the bus that stops in front of the building every 15-30 minutes and will get you within a block or two of all the most popular places and events you'll want to get to in the Wood River Valley. The buses are modern and comfortable and will get you anywhere in the Sun Valley/Ketchum area in less time than it would take you to drive and park, or even walk, from most in-town locations. All the buses have bike- and ski-racks so you can mix your transportation modes, if you like. No rental car expense, scraping windshields, parking hassles, or designated driver necessary; but if you want to explore further than your two feet or our excellent bus system will take you, a rental car can be delivered right to your door whenever you need it.

SMOKE-FREE AND CLEAN
The cleanliness and quality of this condominium will please even the most discerning guests. Smoking is not permitted and we accept only clean, well-behaved pets and conscientious pet-owners. To ensure that our guests respect our property and policies, we require a security deposit and a signed rental agreement.

DON'T RISK YOUR VACATION
on a rental property that has no or only so-so ratings and reviews, or unverifiable owner-submitted reviews. You are assured of a highly enjoyable rental experience when you book this condo since it has one of the best reputations among Sun Valley's many rental offerings with 9 years' worth of solid 5-star ratings and rave reviews from genuine, VRBO-certified guests. Ernest Hemingway could afford to live in the best of all places and now you can, too, because our rates are so reasonable for what you get. Our tourist seasons are usually fully booked, so get your reservation in early!

Car: Not Necessary

Hiking/biking/snowshoeing trails all within a block. Downhill skiing is a 4-minute ride on the free and comfortable bus service that will take you anywhere you are likely to want to go within the Ketchum/Sun Valley area. All restaurants, shops, events, winter and summer recreation and local attractions are within a short walk or bus ride. Just down the street is the fabulous new Wood River YMCA with gym, pools, spas, steam room, climbing wall, yoga, child care, and much more! No location in the Sun Valley area is more central to all the amenities and recreational opportunities that the area has to offer!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: 'Not Rich, Just Lucky!' Lestia and her two better halves, Freddie the dog and Buzzy the horse, spend most of their time on their rustic and remote horse ranch about 20 miles northeast of Sun Valley, but enjoy spending time in town, too. The condo is ideal for this mixed-species family since it is close to all the amenities of town for Lestia, a corral for Buzzy, plus mountain trails, meadows, and streams nearby where Pecos, Buzzy, and Lestia can all play and gallivant to their heart's content.

Why the Owner Chose Ketchum, ID, USA:
I spent years looking for just the right place to buy in the Sun Valley/Ketchum area. The location of this condo has the perfect balance between access to in-town amenities, ski lifts, public transportation, and an abundance of recreational opportunities all within easy walking distance. Plus its location on the top floor corner with a huge balcony and gorgeous views just can't be beat. All this at a price that is so affordable!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The balcony is what sets this condo apart from all others. It is larger and has a better view than most of the multi-million dollar condos in the area. And it is so comfortable, like an extension of the living room with outdoor carpeting, cushioned furniture, plenty of winter sunshine, or summer shade. It's a favorite spot for my friends to gather to have wine and snacks after a day of skiing, hiking, horseback riding, or whatever activities we enjoy together. Another unique feature of the property, however, is that you can walk directly from my condo on the top floor to the street without climbing stairs or using elevators. This is possible because the building was built into the side of a hill that is as high as the top floor. A covered, elevated walkway extends from my door to the opposite side of the building and the street where private parking and a bus stop are just steps away. Incredibly convenient!
