About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

Bulletin! Mammoth still has excellent skiing. If you are longing for one more ski trip, you're in the right place. If you are ready for summer activities, you're also in the right place. This spring and summer, Mammoth has it all!!! You can ski in the morning and bike, hike, fish, etc. in the afternoon.

Our condo in Mammoth View Villas is a second home for us and is in a very quiet location set back from the road. Our building has only 4 units in it, two studios below and two studio/loft units above. So there is never anyone walking on top of your head or tromping down the hall in ski boots. The only sound you may hear is the snow sliding off the roof, the birds singing, or the whistling wind.

The condo is a non-smoking studio/loft unit with 2 bathrooms and a beautiful view of the mountains and Crowley Lake. It has a full kitchen with brand new stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher, microwave, wood-burning fireplace, 42" Widescreen TV, VCR, DVD, stereo with a cassette and CD player. Free wi-fi is provided. The condo is quite large, approximately 800 sq. ft.

The living room has a new full size futon (very comfortable) and the loft has a queen-size bed and a full bathroom. There are also two single futons. Note that the loft is completely enclosed to provide total privacy for those sleeping upstairs. The entry level has the living room, fireplace, kitchen, dining area and a full bathroom. The entry level was recently recarpeted.

The living room area can be divided from the rest of the downstairs in order to provide privacy for those sleeping downstairs. There is a heavy accordian divider that can be pulled across to separate the downstairs into 2 rooms. This unit sleeps up to 4 adults, or 3 adults and 2 children.

Wood, linens, towels, and other necessities are supplied. There is also an extensive collection of books and ski magazines for the times when you are not outdoors. The condo is on Lakeview Blvd. and the Blue Line Shuttle bus stops directly in front of the development (in winter). It is a short walk to the new Village where you eat, shop, and enjoy various activities. You can also catch the Gondola up to Canyon Lodge from the Village.

No pets, smoking, or Recreational Vehicles such as campers are allowed. SUVs are fine, of course.

Mammoth Mountain is a fabulous ski area with runs from beginner to expert for everyone to enjoy. It is easily accessible from Los Angeles or Reno. Our condo is a great place to enjoy everything Mammoth has to offer.

Mammoth Mountain is a four season resort. Just because winter has ended doesn't mean there's nothing to do there. On the contrary, the air is clean and fresh, the skies are blue, it's warm and dry during the day, and it cools down nicely at night. When you are tired of the heat and humidity and pollution of wherever you live, book with us for a refreshing change.

You can bicycle on the roads or trails, have your bike transported to the base of the mountain, or take your mountain bike to the top via the Gondola and ride down from there. You can also take a scenic ride to the top of the mountain. At 11,053 ft. it may be cool, so bring a light jacket. There are numerous lakes and streams for swimming, fishing or boating. There are tons of trails for hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, and camping out. There are a number of festivals which take place throughout the summer. You can enjoy golf or tennis at 8,000 ft. You can also visit the hot creeks or take a day trip to Bodie (old authentic ghost town) or Yosemite.

Note that this is a private unit and is not on a Mammoth rental service. Thus we an provide you with lower rates. However, daily maid service is not provided. We provide a mid-stay clean free of charge for stays of 6 or more days.

If you read the reviews, you may notice that a couple of them have spoken of a smoky smell in the condo. This is absolutely no longer a problem.

Let me explain:

We no longer have any smell of smoke. This was something we could not avoid previously, though we made every effort by plugging the vents from downstairs and replacing the carpet.

The truth is that the elderly woman who lived below us was a chain smoker, smoked inside, and the smell sometimes drifted up through the floor.

This woman no longer lives below us. She moved to a hospice in Los Angeles. So you do not need to be concerned at all. We are presently in the condo and the air is clean. Also, the snow is fantastic and more is on the way.

Come on up!

About Barbara Kelman

We live to ski and ski to live. One of the reasons we moved to the Los Angeles area was the ability, in many years, to ski through Memorial Day or later.

Mammoth is one of the best ski mountains in the country, and the closest to Los Angeles. There is also air service through Los Angeles, Reno, and a growing number of other cities.

Barbara Kelman purchased this condo in 1990

Why Barbara Kelman chose Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth View Villas is unique in that your accommodation is more like a cabin than a hotel room. Each building has 2 or 4 units. It is also set far back from the road, and is very quiet. We grew up in New York City, so quiet surroundings are very important to us.

In addition, it has a beautiful view of the mountains. The first time we looked at the condo and I walked upstairs to the loft, I said to my husband "This is it!". It was everything we were looking for, plus it had a view that was awesome. On those rare days when we're not skiing, we love to relax by the fire (a genuine wood burning fireplace) and watch the snow covering the trees.

What makes this condo unique

Access to the condo does includes some stairs, providing for a great way to get acclimated to the altitude before you ski.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Overall great stay. Great location. Was able to walk to the village or take the bus. Very convenient. Was clean and warm. Bed and futons were comfortable. We didn't use the kitchen at all but it looked clean and had all the essentials if you wanted to cook. Would recommend. Thanks!

Great location and great space

Loved staying at this villa. It was walking distance to the village and very reasonably priced. The owners were helpful and understanding. I would stay there again for sure.

Perfect long weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It was a little difficult finding the place when we arrived at night since it is sort of combined with the Canyon racquet club - the directions were a little too vague and a map of Mammoth View Villas would have been helpful. BUT once we got in and settled, it was an awesome weekend! Location is SUPER convenient for both the village and the mountain. Price was super affordable (especially if you're going with two couples or 4 people). Photos are accurate, but make sure you look at the ones with the more recent dates - I would remove to old photos :)

Fire place was great, heating units were solid (the heat literally rises up into the bedroom even on the lowest temp setting - it got so warm we had to open the windows upstairs).

Kitchen was perfect for making breakfast, coffee and small dinners. Internet was great, able to do a little work with strong connection.

I'd definitely recommend this spot.

Nice and cozy

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect. Just what we needed a nice cozy place to sleep and relax. Just as it states, its a short walk to the village and the bus stop was steps away. They had every sort of dish needed to cook nice home meals. Plenty for firewood to keep us nice an toasty. I will definitely be staying here again on the next visit.

cozy and spacious condo short distance to Mammoth village

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for several days during an epic powder dump. The hosts were extremely accessible and provided thorough instructions beforehand. The kitchen has all the basics for meal prep and cooking. There's a bathroom on each floor and a spacious living room that could easily allow 3-4 people or a small family to hang out comfortably. Lots of channels on the TV and excellent functioning wireless. We especially appreciated the facilities staff who would come by and clear the snow from the stairs and walkway once a day. Extremely good value for the location, the condo is less than 10 minutes from the Gondola, and only a couple of minutes from the nearest Blue shuttle stops. For the walking distance access to the mountain, this condo is superior value compared to other VRBOs with similar access. I typically prefer as close to the mountain as possible but it was quite nice to stay near the village with more dining options. Lift ticket lines much shorter down there too.

Owner's Response: Hi Matthew. Thank you for your review. We certainly communicated a lot during the recent blizzard, and both of our stays at the condo. I wanted to make sure that you were prepared for the driving conditions that you would encounter on your trip, and that you were comfortable once you had reached the condo. You have highlighted just about everything I would want my next visitor to know about the condo. I'm glad you were able to ski some of the phenomenal snow, and to make the drive with no problems. I feel that we became friends during your days in the condo, and I certainly hope you will stay with us again.
