Even Better Than Expected, And We Were Expecting A Lot.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from 4 days skiing, 3 nights in the lower unit. Caretaker Kris was very flexible with our arrival and departure. And very helpful with all other aspects of our stay. The location is perfect for quick access to Big & Little Cottonwood Canyon skiing.Close to ski equipment rental, stores and restaurants.

Very comfortable and spacious. We will be back.

Beautiful, well maintained, ideal ski location

  • 5 of 5

As a family we all enjoyed this cozy, yet spacious and well maintained home. We were 4 adults and 2 teenagers. It was great to be able to easily access the many different ski areas, along with having the stores and resources we needed close by. The caretaker was very friendly and accommodating. We loved the fireplace and view! Just a couple of recommendations: a few more serving and cooking utensils (i.e. spoons, tongs), and have the upstairs renters know when people are below them, considering a quiet time after a certain hour in the evening. We would come again!

Beautiful Home Ideally Located for Little/Big Cottonwood Canyon Skiers

  • 5 of 5

This home is spacious and well appointed. It is ideally located: right near the base of Little Cottonwood Canyon. The owners are super attentive and helpful. I will definitely rent this home again.

Skiing in Utah - Great Trip, Great home!

  • 5 of 5

The home we stayed was great! The house is spacious and comfortable, we loved the big screen tv and access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, etc! The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, and having 3 bathrooms was a plus for 8 people. Two of the guys slept on the sofa bed and they were pleasantly surprised to say the sofa beds were very comfortable!

The kitchen was well equiped with everything we needed to cook each night. We also found they had lots of spices, probably left over from previous renters ;).

Every night we came home from a full day of awesome skiing, Kris (the caretaker) would have the hot tub ready for us to use so there was no need to wait until it was hot enough for us to get in. If we had any questions or concerns he was always very helpful and cheerful, great guy!

I definitely would love to return to this house for our next visit to Utah!

Nice Place with Some Negitives

  • 3 of 5

This place is nice and has a great location. However, there is a 5BR unit above and we discovered that two of the bedrooms are directly below the kitchen/family room of the place above. If the upstairs neighbors are up before you ... you will know it and be awakened as the noise is VERY loud just with them walking around. In the third BR it sounds like a tidal wave is coming through your room from the upstairs bathroom. We found the beds to be hard and not very comfortable. Also, the hot tub and game room are shared with the above unit.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied - we do try extremely hard to ensure our guests have a comfortable stay. We do provide a full description of the layout of the units, the hot tub and game room on this very listing. We had not previously received any complaints to this effect, but one of the reasons we do provide a caretaker on-site is to personally resolve any such problems or difficulties which our guests might experience. We do wish you had taken advantage of this service to inform us earlier, so that we could have improved your time with us. As it stands, we hope that you took advantage of the house and its beautiful location and enjoyed your holiday in Utah.

Great Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the bottom floor of this unit and thought it was perfect. I went with my wife and 3 kids. It was convenient from the airport, to the slopes, and around town if you decide to go out. Since it is located in Sandy, you avoid the high commercial and traffic areas that Deer Valley and Park City bring. The house is big, warm, and a lot of fun due to the big pool table (although that room was a little cold). We for sure will be heading back especially next year when the hot tub is up and running!
