Perfect location to snowboard at Heavenly

  • 5 of 5

This house is even better than the pictures. When we arrived it was easy to enter and there were all the amenities we needed especially in the kitchen. The appliances are clean, new and everything works as expected. The fireplace provides a nice warm spot as a common area. There is plenty of space for 8 adults and two running children. The manager is just a text away and they are quick to answer.

The house is around 1 minute away from the lifts at Heavenly and close to many other activities in the town. The grocery store is around 5 minutes away, so it's very convenient. We would definitely come back and stay again! Thank you!

Beautiful and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous home with 6 adults. Loved the living, kitchen area. Everyone could be together while preparing meals, watching TV, or playing games, while sitting near the wonderful gas fireplace. Well equipped kitchen. Gas fire pit, easy to use. Hot tub perfect for the colder evenings! Especially enjoyed Michael’s artwork from all of his adventures in every room! Would definitely go back this home again!

Cant say enough good things about this property, We had 2 families with kids. The house has 2 master bedrooms on booth sides of the house which makes for a comfortable separation. Clean, comfortable, and the kids loved the travel photos from the owner. Location was great, about a mile to heavenly ski resort and about the same to the downtown area. The photos on Airbnb were pretty spot on.

I would stay here again and recommend to anyone.

Easy entry with door codes being electronic made for a anytime arrival.
