About the property

Studio, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 2

Whether you want to ski or not, this Ketchum studio vacation rental is sure to delight. With community amenities galore, including a year-round pool, as well as a short jaunt to the ski lifts, any traveler would love this cozy two-story condo!

This condo feels bigger than it looks, thanks to a spiral staircase that winds it way up to an open second floor. The living area is thoughtfully furnished with a cream carpet, a red woven sofa bed and a printed chair. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring in tons of light and the sliding glass door leads onto a cozy balcony with a gas grill for entertaining.

The kitchen is intimate, with wooden cupboards, a small fridge, and electric range. Enjoy a nosh at the two-seat dining table. It's cozy and comfortable.

The carpeted, spiral staircase leads to a sleeping loft, which boasts a queen bed, small wooden dresser, closet and an en-suite bathroom, with gray wallpaper, towels and a full bathtub.

Wash your clothes at the shared laundry facility and enjoy a soak in the shared hot tub or heated-pool at the condo complex. There's also WiFi provided so you can stay connected.

Skiers from around the country flock to Ketchum to hit the slopes. You have your choice of high-end resorts or cozier spots run by locals. But Ketchum is not just a winter wonderland. Travelers in the know head here in the summer for sunny days and plentiful hiking opportunities.

With views of the mountains and valley, you and up to three guests are never far from the natural wonder at this cozy Sun Valley/Ketchum vacation rental.

About Vacasa, ID - Sun Valley/Ketchum Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Quirky and Almost 5 star

  • 5 of 5

The quirky part is the spiral staircase to enter the condo and the spiral staircase to the loft. The view and the creek running below the condo were worth the effort of lugging suitcases, gear, and groceries up that spiral. The bed was comfortable and there were plentiful amenities.

Those stairs are no joke

  • 2 of 5

Let me start by saying this: I fell down the stairs. Other guests have commented that the two spiral staircases are narrow and difficult to navigate. That is very true. Going up, they're more like ladders. Carrying a large suitcase would be nearly impossible, and if you're a large person, look elsewhere because you likely wouldn't fit through the narrow spaces on both staircase. Going up is not so bad, but coming down the staircase between the living area and bedroom is downright scary. The stair treads are very, very narrow. At the top, you can hold the center post with one hand and the wall with the other. If you go down very carefully, putting your foot sideways on each tread, you'll be ok...until you get to the third from last stair. You can still hold the center post, but on your left, there's nothing but air. Signs inside the unit direct you to remove your shoes, which I had done. So, I was coming down wearing just socks and I got to third from last stair and I put my size 5 1/2 foot straight on the tread instead of sideways, and my foot slipped. I had ahold of the center post, which caused me to swing around, right to the top of the second spiral staircase, which goes downstairs. I fell down two of those stairs before managing to grab the wall in front of me. Luckily, I wasn't injured, just very shaken up, with a few scraped-up knuckles on one hand. There is no railing to hold on either staircase, so seriously...if you're staying in this unit, please go down slowly and carefully. Every tread is shaped differently - some are larger than others - but some only have a few square inches on which to place your feet on the way down. A fall on these stairs could result in a really serious injury, especially if one of your appendages happened to get stuck in the spaces between the treads as you fell.

Stairs aside, the unit is pretty cute and cozy, once you're settled into the level where you want to be. The main room is nice, and from the deck you have a great view of the pretty river. The mattress upstairs is not super comfortable, but the room itself is nice and has a huge window with a nice view. Several things were broken: the table on the deck, light fixture in the bathroom and hand towel bar in the bathroom. The little kitchenette is well-stocked and has everything you need. When we arrived at 11 pm, we found that the previous tenant had failed to leave the parking pass there. We called Vacasa and left a message, assuming we were out of luck for that evening. Vacasa called back within about 15 minutes. While they couldn't get a pass for us that night, they did have someone drop one by the very next morning. Overall, our stay was pleasant, but those stairs are really no joke. If you're looking at staying here, please be extra careful.

Very nice property -- but, spiral staircase to upper level is really narrow. Tough to get large suitcase upstairs.

Best Little Condo in Town

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for two people and maybe a child or two. We loved being near the ski lift and the lodge for lunch and after skiing hang out.

Must be able to walk up two flights of spiral staircases, but otherwise great place! Would stay here again.

Amazing location, interesting unit

  • 4 of 5

As close to the ski lifts as you can get! It is worth noting the unit is hard to get into/ out of. There is a tiny spiral staircase straight up when you open the door, and another to the upstairs bedroom. Besides the stairs it's a fine unit for a young couple like ourselves. Like I said, prime location and nice hot tub(full size pool but over 100 degrees). 5/5 location, 3/5 unit = 4/5 overall.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot beat the location of this property. It is a quick (very short) walk to the ski lift and to the bus stop for free transportation to downtown. As already mentioned, the stairs are a little tricky, but if you don't have any physical issues that the stairs might be a problem, this condo is wonderful! Also, a large suitcase might be challenging to get up the stairs. It would much easier with a soft duffel.
