About Annie

We love everything about VRBO and have used them personally for travel for years and have also hosted for years.

Deb (on the left) works in the airline industry and I am a private chef.

We love travel, food and helping other to enjoy the same things that we do.

We are both native to Utah. We can get you the recommendation and help you need to make your vacation perfect.

Why Annie chose Sandy

Why this property?... LOCATION!!! We are near anything and everything you could want for your vacation... Be that - great restaurants, beautiful mountains, grocery stores, walking paths, movies, on sight help, and complete privacy.

What makes this house unique

The price is right for being 30 min to skiing and 5 min to food, freeway and entertainment.

The home has a fun, funky vibe - that make you feel comfortable and want to stay in and hang out with friends or relax.

Screaming wifi and cable TV top off this hidden gem.

Comfortable basement apartment in a residential neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Our 5 week stay was very pleasant-a season lift ticket for Alta has been a bucket list item for years.

Deb was quick to respond to any question, from where to eat locally, The Garage, to finding a vet for the dog, Draper Animal Hospital. Glad we were able to meet Annie on our last night.

Adorable, cozy, funky studio apartment!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, son and I arrived pretty late one evening and entered this cute little lower level, 2-bedroom apartment, with welcoming candles burning. My son and husband (who had not seen the pictures beforehand) said, "Wow!" The place was spot on perfect for our ski vacation. We had privacy, comfortable beds, a place to cook simple meals, a great stereo system and TV. Also, the location was PERFECT! It is located in a cute, quiet little neighborhood with stunning views of the mountains. It has easy access to several fantastic grocery stores, the highway, downtown Salt Lake, the airport, and both Cottonwood Canyons. Another of my sons arrived two days into the stay and also had no trouble sleeping on the living room futon. All in all, it was just a great place. I would completely recommend Annie's vacation home!

Not what I expected

  • 2 of 5

This is a basement apartment with very little natural light if any. The ceiling is not noise insulated and you can hear people talk/shout upstairs and at night dogs walk or bark also upstairs. The kitchen space is tiny and probably designed more for re heating prepared meals than for cooking - in fact since there is no air ventilation above the stove, all the odors will stay in the apartment for a while after you cook.

Finally, and this is where I should have paid more attention when renting, this apartment is NOT in Sandy, as the ad says, but in Draper. For those wanting to use it as a base to go skiing, this adds some precious time to reach Little Cottonwood Canyon (it took me 25 min to reach the base of the canyon, and 45 min to reach Alta, on average).

Owner's Response: We were sorry to receive your unsatisfactory review. I am not sure why it took you so long to drive to the base of the canyon. We will work on having printed directions for future guests so they will not have the same problems. We have in the description that the apartment is in the lower level of the home. There is daylight during the daytime that comes in through 3 windows - plus the appartment door has a window. There is also a photo of the kitchen provided on our page - so guests can see the set up. You are the first dis-satisfied person we have had stay with us. Again, we are sorry that your stay was unsatisfactory.

Ski vacation in Utah

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, spacious, and quiet basement apartment at very reasonable price. Kitchen was very well stocked. The house is in a residential neighborhood, about 30 mins drive to Cottonwood ski areas. Annie and Deb are great hosts - very responsive.

We will certainly try to stay there again!

Sandy, Utah

I loved this apartment! It is beautifully decorated, comfortable, quiet, and in a great neighborhood. Annie and Deb are kind and thoughtful hosts - they waited up for me, and I didn't t arrive until almost midnight, and the apartment is well stocked with coffee, jams, shampoo, conditioner and lotions and spotlessly clean. Thank you both for welcoming me and my little dog in to your home.
