About Mark

Hi VRBO travelers and friends! My name is Mark and I love to cook. I also love Europe and traveling. I love hosting great guests from around the world. I would love to welcome you to my beautiful home in one of the most gorgeous places in the world to visit. Utah has so much to offer. Whether you are a skier, convention goer, a family looking for higher-end accommodations, or a business traveler/executive, this home fits the bill. I hope you enjoy staying here on your next visit to Utah.

I am born and raised in Salt Lake. I was inspired to build this home to replicate a German cottage. I wanted large open very comfortable spaces with large master suites for all to spread out and have a good time together. I hope you feel that when you stay here.

Mark purchased this house in 2007

Why Mark chose West Valley City

This home is very unique where it is located, it stunning panoramic views of the Wasatch Mountains in the distance, how much snow it gets on this ridge, and for how deceivingly large it is inside on a single level. Lots of space, games, fun for kids, and comfort.

Lots of snow in the winter - this unique elevation seems to get more snow than other areas of the city.

Also enjoy spacious, unique, open floor plan with 2 nice kitchens that offer a large bar, dining table for 8 plus bar seating for 4, 2 large open family rooms to gather and relax, a private back patio, gorgeous landscaping.

The basement is huge (2000 sq ft) and has a basketball arcade game, mini air hockey for kids, play castle of cardboard, and a large family room with large TV, sectional, and a projector screen.

What makes this house unique

Adorable custom playhouse for kids with a small loft, flower boxes, stone path, 2 entrances for different kid ages, and fully decorated with play furniture.

Awesome mountain views, large open family rooms, close proximity to everything in Salt Lake valley, gorgeous unique landscaping. Skiing, snowboarding, golf, racing, outdoor recreation, ice skating, summer concerts at the local-favorite USANA outdoor amphitheater and more.

Great Place to Stay Outside of Salt Lake City

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, plenty of rooms, bathrooms, and space to stretch out. The back patio has just enough space for cooking out. The owner is very easy to work with. Highly recommended.

Lots of room and close to the SLC airport

  • 4 of 5

Modern, spacious home with plenty of room for our party of 12. When we checked in I noticed how clean it was- no funny smells like hotel rooms frequently have. We enjoyed sitting around the breakfast bar for meals. The family rooms have 2 large flat screens, game system and a huge movie collection. It's on a quiet street with lots of shopping close by. Would have been nice to be a little closer to downtown Salt Lake but it's a tradeoff for the extra space. The drive to the airport was quick and easy. The owner made checking in and out convenient. No complaints but- there is almost no back yard so groups with lots of young children might miss that. Very positive experience all around - I will definitely book again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the helpful feedback. You were dream guests! Noone has EVER left our home as clean and tidy as you folks did. I was blown away. Thanks sonmuch! I should have shown you the "backroads" to downtown Salt Lake, would have cut your drive time in half (sorry).The new neighborhood park they just finished three houses down is the mecca for the small kids in lieu of the smaller backyard. The new playground is so unique, and the unobstructed panoramic view of the city and wasatch mountains is unlike any park I've seen in the area. So glad you enjoyed your stay. You're welcome back anytime!

Great home base - spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

This home provided our group with a wonderful home base! The owner is easy to work with. He replied to my emails in a timely manner and provided all amenities listed. The neighborhood is quiet and an easy drive to and from SLC. The view is spectacular. I would stay at the home again.

What a nice home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Owner was great and hospitable, the home was immaculate and full of games, board games, supplies, tons of movies to watch, and the back patio is such a nice oasis to go relax on. This has to be one of the nicest landscaped yards I've seen, just gorgeous property. Worth the extra 15 minute drive to Salt Lake. Trust me.

Wonderful home - we loved it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed her last week and just loved it. We were here for a spring ski trip. The home is very large and the master bedroom is so spacious. We both loved how comfortable the king bed was. Kids loved the basketball game downstairs, and the view from the neighborhood is spectacular. Our daughter LOVED the girls room next to the master and the adorable decor in there.

The owner is helpful and saved us money on rental cars and some attraction passes which was great. Perfect home for families who want a very nice place with a huge cost and lots of fun.
