Great view, great studio

  • 5 of 5

The studio is clean, neat and comfortable. Jocelyn was a great host and Belle (the dog) was sweet. Great place for a quick getaway (from the city and/or the kids!).

Good location, nice scenery

  • 3 of 5

I stayed for 2 nights with my son. It worked out fine for us and the views were nice. The refrigerator did not work well which we were warned about right before arriving. But, I had already loaded up on groceries, so I was committed. Given the remote location of Stanley, you need to have some extra food. We needed to be able to make breakfasts/dinners and justified the expense ($200/night including fees) by eating in. Given that the fridge froze all of our food , it was disappointing and caused a scramble. My son had a race and wasn't able to eat what we had planned. Overall, I did not think the stay was a good value for the amenities. I let the owner know we lost $20 of food, but she did not attempt to reimburse us for our trouble or cost. I have listed on VRBO before and that is what I would have done as an owner.

A spectular location, with views off the front and back patios. Checking in and out was smooth and no issues, can't wait to get back to Stanley again.
