Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked into the Sunny Chalet, we were struck by how beautiful and immaculately clean the place was. Everything looked brand new, including all the bathrooms and appliances in the kitchen. The upper level was so spacious and definitely lived up to its "sunny chalet" name. Stunning! We lucked out on the weather so even got to use the BBQ grill and hot tub....which was great after a full day of skiing! Only wished we could have stayed longer!

The property was perfect. Inside and out were exactly as pictured and everything we hoped.

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for a birthday get away and we had the best time. It had snowed really intensely the night before we arrived so when we got there, the house looked stunning. We were able to pull right into the garage and unload ourselves and the kiddos with ease. The home was inviting from the moment we stepped in. It warmed up quickly and we enjoyed our first evening sitting by the wood stove and watching the snow blow around outside. The home was simple and very clean. We had everything we needed and we were able to keep the two just under 2 year-olds out of trouble because the arrangement of everything was so well suited to a family. We were able to ski and board nearby at Donner with ease and the little ones loved getting all their gear on and going on to the balcony to play in the snow! Us moms had it pretty easy! The hot tub was just awesome as well! Sitting out there surrounded by the peace and quiet was so relaxing. Preparing meals was a breeze in the kitchen and there was even a ton of storage to put away all the food. The binder explaining how everything worked and what was expected was very clear and really helped us a lot. Having access to WiFi for iPads and other devices was crucial for us and the set up at the home worked perfect. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The home has the best vibes, it's so warm, welcoming, easy to use, comfortable and has tons of access to fun stuff in the Donner area. We are so grateful we found this place! We highly recommend going for a visit!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed this Sunny Chalet. It had everything we needed. We were traveling with our 4 kids (15,15, 12 & 5) and everyone had enough space and something fun to do - playing games, watching movies, playing outside, and mountain biking. The kitchen had all we needed to make all our meals. Hot tub was great too. I enjoyed having my coffee on the porch and listening to the birds. We would definitely return! Thanks Steve!
