Why Sheena chose Winter Park Area

This is great beautifully maintained property, with a great location for both winter & summer enjoyment. Although we live in California, I grew up in Colorado and specifically skiing at WP. I love the year round activities this little town has to offer. We love to ski, mountain bike, fish & golf. This offer all of the above and now we have a GREAT little condo to enjoy home cooked meals & fine wine at the end the of day. We hope you will too! Cheers~

Nice condo and great location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stay at the condo for our anniversary. Wonderful place to stay! The condo is less than a block away from some delicious restaurants, and minutes walks to bike rentals, shopping a nice city park and a shuttle service that takes you to Winter Park Resort with its fun summer activities.

The condo itself is very nice. The bed is nice to sleep in with its cozy comforter and high quality cotton sheets. Not sure if this matters to anyone, but I also find the shower very important. This one lived up to my expectations with good water pressure, enough hot water and beautifully tiled. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and appliances. We were on the go most of the time and it was nice to come back after an active day, open the front door and relax to the sound of the creek that runs near the front of the building.

Sheena expects her place to be well taken care of and respected. This is not an unrealistic request. The nice thing is she doesn't leave you guessing about the house rules or preferences. I like the fact there is a temporary lease to sign and a binder with house rules and a few nicely displayed reminders around the condo.

Great place and highly recommended.

A great getaway for 2

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your lovely little condo. It was just as described, and the price was very reasonable. The location was great for easy access while still feeling like being surrounded by nature with the stream right outside the front door.

I only have a few minor suggestions -

1 - our dates were during the warmest part of the year. The unit does not have air-conditioning, but since it is the ground floor the temperatures were reasonable. However, a fan for air movement would have made it much more comfortable for sleeping.

2 -It would be nice to have coasters to place our drinks on - I wouldn't want to damage any furniture (we used our magazines)

3 - The outside light was burnt out. We had to use the flashlight on our phone to see the numbers on the door lock.

Other than these MINOR issues, our stay was great. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Donna, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, yes it is so nice to have the creek right at your front door. I appreciate your feed back and will certainly look to getting a fan in the condo for the future. I will be out there in September & get that taken care. There were coasters in the condo, so I am wondering if they been taken, or simply put in a drawer, I will ask the cleaning company to look into that. I was unaware that the light was burnt out, my aunt live next door & I ask her to replace it. Thank you again, for your feedback & hope that if your travels take you back to WP that you consider my condo in the future. Cheers ~Sheena

The best of both worlds: a peaceful retreat in the heart of Winter Park.

  • 4 of 5

The trees and creek out the front door offer a secluded, quiet retreat--yet we loved being in the heart of town with restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. The condo is nicely appointed with modern, quality finishes--really a delightful place to be. It worked great for the two of us. There is no closet or space in the dresser drawers, so come prepared to live out of your suitcase. We had a few maintenance glitches upon arrival but the owner was super responsive and resolved everything immediately. We would definitely recommend this spot!

Cute, well-lit, clean, convienent condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our 3 kids on a ski trip and chose this condo for an affordable place to stay. As the owner warned us, it was a tight squeeze with the 5 of us but it worked out perfect for our needs. We made it work for sleeping arrangements for the kids in the living room and my husband and I got our own bedroom to watch TV after the kids fell asleep. It was clean, cute, and well-kept. The ski locker MADE THE TRIP!!! We were able to catch the bus right across the street without hauling all of our ski equipment back and forth. Thank you Sheena for allowing us some happy, affordable family ski memories with our kiddos (and for allowing us the fifth person...she is still small enough to fit on your couch there)!

Owner's Response: I am glad that you were able to all fit and yes it is indeed a "cozy" condo. (I have a 2bd. condo just down the road, so keep that in mind for the future.) The ski locker is a HUGE benefit, I would agree, and I am sure with three little ones that was very helpful! ~Sheena

Perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed there two weeks ago for a ski trip and had a great time. Location is ideal with restaurants and retail stores all within walking distance. Plus, the free bus transportation stop to and from Winterpark is 100 or so yards away.

Having access to the owners ski locker at the base of Winterpark made coming and going a breeze with all of our ski gear.

Overall, a great place to stay.

Fantastic Location; Great Little Place; Competitive Price!

  • 5 of 5

Close to the slopes and walking distance to all places to go out in Winter Park town, this condo is a great deal.Sheena is very honest and responsive. When I read on the site that she recommends the condo for a couple and small children (because #3 and 4 sleep on an air mattress in the living room)I wrote to let Sheena know that we were two adult couples but that we are hard-core travelers who can handle less than ideal situations and asked if she thought the space would be too small. Sheena was very honest and said that it would be tight but that if we thought it was fine, then she'd take us. It was tight during the night when the airbed is down but it's really easy to pick it up in the day and it was fine. The airbed is a really good one and more comfortable than any sofa bed. I appreciated Sheena's being honest with us. The place is really well-remodeled and the kitchen is well-stocked. You are a about 100 yards off the main drag (1 1/2 blocks to Deno's or Mo's one way, 1 1/2 blocks to Fish Tacos or Ullyr's the other) but you're right beside the creek on the first floor. Thanks for the digs!
