Great Location, Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

Close to the city tram, with hiking and biking trails right off the balcony, this was a great place to stay. The kitchen was well equipped, all the beds were comfortable, parking was convenient, and we were close to the pool. We even grilled hot dogs poolside one evening!

Two full bathrooms really added to the convenience factor for my family. Though the weather was warm during the day, simply opening the windows provided enough air flow to keep the condo cool and comfortable.

This condo was everything we hoped for, and we'd happily stay here again!

The one catch was that it was up two long flights of stairs. I've stayed around Mammoth before, so this didn't surprise me, but it is something to be aware of.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for our annual Mammoth trip and had a blast! The kids were able to go right off the back patio to go play in the snow and the ski back trail brought us right to the condo. Warm and cozy inside with plenty of room for the 4 of us to sleep. Also, the covered parking was key during the winter storm. My only complaint was that the kitchen had no fan and the fire alarm went off when we were cooking dinner. Would definitely go back and recommend to a friend.

Not really as advertised

  • 3 of 5

Please be aware renters, this is a one bedroom unit (with a daybed in a corner of the living room). It is not a 2 bedroom, not even a 1 bedroom plus loft! Very misleading. The preparation of the unit for rent was very poor. Dirty dishes in the cabinets. No instructions for how to heat the unit upon arrival. A few calls to the "owner?" / broker were unpleasant. Finally got some heat, but bare wires coming out of the wall where a thermostat should be did not leave a good impression. Four flights of stairs to get up to the unit. On the back side of the complex, no views to speak of. Steep sloping drive into the complex would be very difficult in snow or ice! Microwave plate for turntable was missing. The unit needs paint, upgrades, and some attention. Overall we had a negative impression of the unit, and "Renting by Owner" in general. We have since had a wonderful experience, so it seems to just be a matter of which "Owner" you rent from. There are terrific units with wonderful, caring, attentive owners who want you to be a guest in their home! This Ski & Racquet unit is part of a broker's group of rentals and attentive is not a word I would use. That makes all the difference.

Owner's Response: Sorry you had a bad time but we are bit confused. Our listing clearly states it's a one bedroom with very obvious photos. The detailed description also gives the renter a thorough description of the bed configuration and the view into the mountain pines. Again, with pictures. Many of our guests love the quiet section the condo faces as there is a lot of wildlife to enjoy instead of cars pulling in and out. Your rate was $90 a night so clearly you were looking for a very affordable place to stay. Perhaps a larger budget next time would allow for a larger space. If we had known about the dirty dishes, which is surprising as our cleaning staff is excellent, we could have come over immediately to clean again. We would have liked to know about the exposed wires when you stayed 8 months ago as we would have sent out an electrician immediately, as well.

Good value

  • 4 of 5

It's about a half mile walk down dozens of outdoor stairs to get to Canyon Lodge from the condo. We did this on the first day and it was a trek. You can ski home to the back of the condo but you have to know where the "ski back trail" is and Mammoth does not have good signs for this trail. It is on the map but somewhat difficult to find while skiing because the signs are about 1/10th the size of the normal ski trail signs. If you get onto the ski back trail just keep an eye out for the back of the condos. You'll be able to see them from the trail (although you can't see the trail from the patio....you might be able to notice people skiing by in the afternoon if you watch for them). I think the ski back trail is located near the top of chair 7. Look on the trail map for it. It is labeled on the trail map. On morning #2, we opted to drive everyone to the skier drop off zone at Canyon lodge in the morning and one person drove back and parked the car in the garage and then walked back in walking boots. We got a locker for $10 per day to make this easier for us to do so we didn't have to walk in ski boots. The driveway back to the condo is SO steep that on the third day, my prius with chains would not make it back up to the top of the hill where the garage is located. I'm not sure why days 1 and 2 were fine in the prius but day 3 we ran out of luck which was a hassle. We thought we'd be close enough to the mountain to be able to go home for lunch but it was too much of a hassle to do this. Once you ski home for lunch, you don't want to deal with getting back to the mountain so we never skied home until the end of the day. Next year we are staying at the condos at the bottom of Eagle Lodge again because it is MUCH easier to walk home and kids can do it alone if they get tired. This place was a good value for the money though. It has two full bathrooms. And it sleeps 6 comfortably, although 4 people are in one room, and 2 people get the master. The fan on the range is broken and the toaster needs to be replaced. It took literally 35 seconds to burn a bagel or toast. We timed it. And when you burn something, there is no fan to get the smoke out. I wrote out the clear instructions on how to get to the lodge the easiest way because we really had no idea. It would be great if there was a clear map stating some local tips on how to do it. I called the help line and although she was friendly, she didn't know where the ski back trail was.

Good value, nice pool

  • 4 of 5

The property was what we expected for the price and previous reviews. I know mammoth well, and know these condos have been here for quite some time. So, we were not disappointed. Alot of stairs to get to the unit. I liked parking in the garage, and would have even more if it was winter. My son slept on the daybed, i had the pullout which was comfortable, And grandpa had the main bedroom. Showers are older and should be upgraded. The pool was great!

The resort is very nice, the condo is tastefully decorated. Quiet, away from it all.

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in condo's in Mammoth for years. I thought this time we would stay up on the mountain for a view. However, the condo looks the other way - the mountain. So a bit disappointing there. However the resort was very quiet, and nice. We enjoyed the jacuzzi every day. There are many steps to get to the condo, and we were huffing and puffing every time. We were comfortable, and the condo was well stocked with everything that we needed. We lucked out, the weather was beautiful and we had a very enjoyable time!!!
