Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

A great family weekend, and we couldn't be more impressed with the property mangers responses, house location and comfortabilty of the house. The driveway had plenty of room for 4 full-size SUV's, and a short walk to the lifts along with good location to the downtown make this property top notch.

Excellent

Great location, clean place with all the amenities you could need. Everything was perfect. Beautiful place. If there was a small complaint the mattresses were slightly uncomfortable, but we did sleep fine. Otherwise, I would have rated 5 stars.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great property, exactly what is advertised. The location is ideal, and you can walk to the ski slopes which was perfect for our group since some were in a hurry to get up on the first chair, also the Heavenly Bus route is right out the front door so if you don't feel like walking you can catch a quick ride. Parking is a nightmare down at the Gondola and going to cost you a min of $20, and on snow days the overflow parking for California base lodge is all the down by ski run, 5 blocks further down then this house. As for the house it was clean and well maintained, beds were comfortable, and we loved the decor. Kitchen has everything needed for cooking, and gathering. Electronic door codes made for an easy check-in and the property manager was on top of things. Cant say enough good things. I highly recommend to all.

Clean and comfortable house except for at night with the cold temperature of the furnace.

  • 3 of 5

We called the owner to help us because the temperature in the house would go down to 62 every night for four nights and he said if we turned the fireplace switch to off it would over ride the furnace so we did that and it still got cold. We had eight people in the house and we all froze at night. Especially the ones downstairs. The fireplace didn’t work right either and was confusing with the pilot light going out. He did fix that. The notebook with instructions said the furnace is automatically set to 65 at night so I told him that is why I think it is cold at night but he still said if we turn the fireplace off it will over ride it. Maybe if we didn’t use the fireplace it would have been better I don’t know why it went to exactly 62 degrees in the house every night. The shower in the master bathroom has a straight down shower head and you have to go under it to turn the knob and the water takes a while to get warm so not very convenient. Otherwise everything was perfect. The house was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed it very much. Would definitely rent it again if we could figure out the heating and fireplace system.

Owner's Response: If at any time your having issues with anything please let somebody know. We are here to help, and hate 3 star reviews. The thermostat is Nest all you have to do is turn it to the right (heat turns up) left (heat turns down) turning it will override the setting. Somebody turned the gas off on the fireplace so the pilot light had to be re-started, it all can be a little confusing sometimes and I don't coming over and explaining things. Hope to have you again.
