"My Husband, our Golden Doodle Apex, and I spent a New Year’s 2017 at Jerry’s home in Ketchum. I choose the word ‘home’ very specifically, because that is exactly what the condo is… a home. And we were very happy to call it our home for a week. We rent 10 – 12 properties a year with good to average results, our experience here was excellent.
The condo itself is very spacious, beautifully appointed, comfortable and well stocked. I don't believe the photo's truly do the unit justice. The kitchen has all of the small appliance extras you generally don’t find in rental condo’s so I could easily cook as I do at home. All of the appliances and electronics are high end and in ‘like new’ condition, Jerry provided us helpful documentation on how to use everything, and the heated floors feel magical after a day on the slopes. The covered deck off the entry is quite large providing a great space for storing skis, taking off boots and wiping paws.
The condo complex is well maintained, family / pet oriented and the residents are very friendly. The community building is just steps from the front door with an outdoor commercial hot tub and indoor change room and small gym facility, again, well maintained and very clean. There is also a covered deck with BBQ facilities which gave us ample room to do a large surf and turf with my cousin and her husband, who joined us for New Year’s eve. The whole atmosphere is relaxing and indulgent without being a ‘party scene’, and the free bus to the mountain or town is right outside the door so there is never a need to drive.
Ketchum is a great little town with everything you could ever need, and I highly support Jerry’s recommendation of the Sun Valley Animal Center for any pet needs, including daycare. Apex had a blast making new friends at daycare on the days we were on the mountain. Across the street from the condo, pets are welcome off leash along the river which has great snow shoeing and (ungroomed) cross country trails. We lucked out with great snow the whole time we were there, which is outside of Jerry’s control, but everything within his control was wonderfully taken care of and we can’t wait to come back."
