"Over the past 23 summer vacations, our family of four, plus Dog, have spent 18 of them in Mammoth. We’ve stayed at several Pet Friendly units waiting to find the location that feels like home. Back in 2012 we were fortunate to have found Woodlands 26. Luck has struck again, we were able to book this unit for our August 2016 seven day summer vacation. The unit IS home away from home. The unit was clean. This is a Pet Friendly unit, and two of the four of us have allergies, but the unit was cleaned so well, you’d never guess it is Pet Friendly. There have been several upgrades since our last visit. New flooring, and granite countertop in the kitchen. The kitchen is equipped enough to cook every night. We never ran into wishing there was more. UNPACK!!! No need to live out of your luggage, there’s plenty of storage. This is a townhouse complex, but the unit isn't compacted between other units. There is a serene and comfortable feeling of space. The unit is positioned in a way that allows for privacy from neighboring units – including from the attached townhouse, which isn't even visible from this unit – and is located deep enough within the complex that we couldn’t even hear passing vehicles. It felt as if we were in an unattached home. An early morning view out of the kitchen window of a Doe crossing the golf course with her four fawn was unforgettable. Just steps away from the front door is a convenient walking trail to take your dog on a soothing walk. Before checking out, our family gathered for opinions in the event there was anything any of us were disappointed about – silence all around. None of us could think of a thing to be disappointed with. When booking the unit several months earlier, we ran into internet connectivity issues. Sally, the owner, was very responsive and helpful, and resolved our booking issues immediately. With her open lines of communication, which isn’t the case with many other property owners, it felt like talking to an old friend. She made the entire process, including answering any pre-arrival questions, stress-free. She’s adorable. If you want to feel 'at home' at the end of a long day of biking, hiking, fishing, etc., we recommend coming ‘home’ to Woodlands 26. Other vacation rental owners could learn a thing or two staying here themselves. We would definitely CHOOSE to stay in Woodlands 26 again – and deal with Sally again."
