About the property

Actual OWNER vacation rental - not property manager vacation rental

Mammoth – The 2nd Happiest Place on Earth – “Home Away From Home”

Mammoth will be open for skiing until the 4th of July (our great nation's B-Day)!!!!!

Thank you very much for inquiring about my beautiful home away from home – I really appreciate it. This condo is truly unique as far as 2-bed rental condos go – keep reading to see why.

My wife & I are lucky enough to own 2 Mammoth condos (both in the same building!). If you can use a smaller (but still good sized condo) and less expensive condo – contact me. I have some guests that rent both at the same time. If owning 2 Mammoth vacation condo does not show that my family is CRAZY about Mammoth - then nothing will.

VRBO = Vacation Rental by OWNER. Have you noticed how many of these listings are NOT by OWNER? I own this condo (and another smaller condo in the same complex) so you will ACTUALLY be dealing with the OWNER.

Mammoth has a ton of LE$$ expensive places to stay than my condo BUT if you want great VALUE for your hard-earned $$$ - then this is the place for you. In addition to having a very nice condo on the inside (thanks to my wonderful Martha Stewart like wife), we also have a fantastic complex. Our complex has underground parking so in courtyard you DO NOT see any asphalt or vehicles. If you want a low-cost place to stay, Mammoth does have a Motel-6 in town (760) 934-6660.

2-Bed/2 Full Bath/2 Story Condo:

This HUGE (approx. 1,250 sq. ft.) 2-story condo has not one but TWO Pillow-Top King Beds, a sofa queen bed, bunk beds, 2 bathrooms, underground parking, 'cathedral' ceilings. The bottom bunk is a full bed instead of the usual twin bed. It has two separate living areas (one upstairs & one downstairs). There is a FULL bathroom upstairs and a FULL bathroom downstairs. This condo is great for in-laws or two small families. TVs – all 3 are hi-quality flat panel including a 47”and a 55”.

In WINTER you will SPOILED by the 3 L’s (location, location, location). My beautiful 'home away from home' is only 120 yards from the nearest chairlift and only 210 yards from Canyon Lodge. Canyon Lodge is a full-service Lodge with rentals, lessons, shops, bars, restaurants, & ski school. There are 4 lifts & 2 rope tows at Canyon Lodge. If you are not very familiar with the Canyon Lodge area - please check out the Satellite view. .

Please don’t hesitate to contact me about all things Mammoth even if you don't want to stay in my condo. I can be a great resource for you upcoming trip to The 2nd Happiest Place on Earth. If my 'home away from home' is not for you - that's OK. If you contact me I can provide other options for you.

Also feel free to contact me for my great Mammoth insider info. IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TO MAMMOTH or it has been a long time - my great info can help you to get completely orientated to Mammoth way before you arrive at the beautiful town. I WILL help your family make the most Mammoth Memories as possible.

I DO HAVE AN OPEN FLOOR PLAN. The reason I am stating this is that my wife (far better-half) and I are avid House Hunters fans and it seems that everyone wants an open floor plan.

About John - the Funmiester - I OWN & MANAGE this beautiful condo!

My far-better half (Wife) & I purchased this condo in 2001. We love to bring family and friends to Mammoth so we bought this HUGE condo. Two years later we bought ANOTHER condo in the same complex and same building. The 2nd condo is a beautiful 1-bed/1-bath.

My wife & I really enjoy sharing our 'home away from home' with others that will treat it as their own.

John - the Funmiester - I OWN & MANAGE this beautiful condo! purchased this condo in 2001

Why John - the Funmiester - I OWN & MANAGE this beautiful condo! chose Mammoth Lakes

This is a GREAT question. My wife & I are both really, really picky. We searched for well over a year and looked at 50+ condos before we found this condo.

The 'THING' about this condo that did it for us - in addition to the FANTASTIC LOCATION - was the HUGE upstairs bedroom. Once we walked upstairs saw this huge 2nd bedroom, WE WERE HOOKED!

What makes this condo unique

The 2nd bedroom is much more than just a bedroom. It is the ENTIRE upstairs. The downstairs bedroom is like a typical Mammoth bedroom (maybe slightly larger since it has more than enough room for a king bed).

The upstairs 'bedroom' is what really sets this condo apart. My complex only has 6 condos with this extra space. These 6 condos ended up getting extra square footage due the location in the building.

This 'bedroom' has a pillow-top king bed tucked away in an alcove with a regular 8-ft height ceiling. Outside the alcove the ceiling goes to a peak of 15-ft. This part of the bedroom has a set of bunk-beds. The bottom bunk is a full size bed. A standard bunk-bed has a twin over a twin.

This 'bedroom' also have a sofa, 2 leather chairs, coffee table, 47' hi quality flat screen TV and one more unique feature. There is a full bath room and there is a second vanity & sink outside the bathroom in addition o the one inside the bathroom.

This 2nd 'bedroom' is what sold us on this condo!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am the owner of this condo - my "home away from home." At the bottom of this post I am posting EXACTLY what my guest sent to me via email. This guest is from England and booked my condo way back in September, 2014 and she is staying in April, 2015.

I try really hard to provide ALL of my guests with ALL kinds of (hopefully) GREAT Mammoth info. Did you know that Mammoth has great things to see & do in the dead of winter (in addition to skiing/boarding)? You can go and see an AWESOME Ghost Town or go inner tubing or dog sledding and much much more!

I know that 99% of you have very limited vacation time & I want to help you to make the most of your Mammoth Memories with that time. I encourage all of my guests to contact me via phone, text and email. I have had guests call me while they were in a Gondola on Mammoth Mountain and guests call me from remote parts around Mammoth where I didn't even know there was cell phone coverage. Since this guest is coming from England (5,200 miles away!) - I helped her with planning other parts of her United States vacation.

I will help you whether you are from Los Angeles or Las Vegas....Tahiti or Timbuktu. I actually have had guests from Tahiti that stayed for 10 days, two years in a row BUT I have never had a guest from Timbuktu (yet).


Hi John

My thoughts so far are I can’t believe my luck in finding you in all of my searches way back when we decided to come to Mammoth, how we stumbled across your condo and your wealth of knowledge is down to some very very good luck.

I love these ideas so far and we will definitely go and see the ones we can access. I had realised with a bit of research that the Tioga pass is likely to be closed when we are there.

Where would you suggest we visit on our way back over to San Francisco? Do you have a favourite area to explore? We leave Mammoth on the 7th April and fly home from SF on the 11th.

Spacious condo close to the lifts at Canyon Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our host John was very accommodating and helpful not only with the condo but with the activities in the area. He was so nice to get us a parking space at his condo the night before so that we could enjoy the "Night of Lights" without having to deal with the parking and gondola lines. As far as the actual condo, it's very spacious with a living room downstairs and upstairs which worked well for us as a family. The location is great. It is truly walking distance to the lift at Canyon Lodge. We had a great time and would come back again.

Owner's Response: My family loves to host other families in our "home away from home." This family treated our condo as their own and we really appreciate that since we use this condo often. If you rent my condo, I will be sending you lots if great "insider" Mammoth tips and lots of suggestions. There is so much to see and do in and around Mammoth. I know your vacation time is limited so I can help you make the most with that time. Of course if you just want to kick back and relax, my condo AND complex is great for that too. This family had NO IDEA about the SUPER-SPECTACULAR Mammoth Night of Lights show. I told them all about it and gave them lots of tips to make the most of that event. I will do the same for all of my guests. Manmoth is off to a GREAT START with SNOWFALL. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!

Great location, friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo that is truly steps from the lifts. This unit is truly rented by the owner so the unit has a lot of character and good amenities. The owner really cares and has been very helpful before and during the stay. We'll go back next year!

Canyon Lodge
ONLY 210 yards from my "home away from home" condo!!!! Full service lodge with EVERYTHING!!!!!
Car: not necessary

There are 3 Ski Lodges on the awesome Mammoth Mountain. You will be COMPLETELY SPOILED with my fantastic location. We only about 210 yards from Canyon Lodge that is in the MIDDLE of the mountain. We are only 120 yards from the nearest lift. Also, there are 3 other lifts plus 2 rope-tows at Canyon Lodge.

Also, there is a restaurant/bar right across the street. It is SO CLOSE that you can hit it with a snowball.

Canyon Lodge is a full-service lodge with EVERYTHING you need to include rentals, ski school, shops, restaurants, bars BUT one of the BEST features is the FREE Gondola that goes from Canyon Lodge to The Village.

What does the Village Gondola mean for you? LOTS! You can take a FUN, SAFE & FREE 4 minute ride via SCENIC Gondola to one location that has it all. Just the Gondola ride alone is great for Kids (of ALL ages).

Mammoth is a TOTAL scenic wonderland. If interested, I will send you a very COMPLETE list of things to SEE & DO in & around Mammoth.

The Village has shops, bars, restaurants & activities. The food choices include Starbucks, pizza, sushi, deli, Mexican food, a wine bar/restaurant and several Fine Dining options. I saved my best 2 choices for last - a Chocolate Factory and an Ice Cream Store!
