The property was perfect for my little family. Set in a fairly upscale, quiet neighborhood, you immediately had a sense of peace and just a bit of extravagance without being overwhelmed. Plus, it was only a short drive--maybe five minutes--from numerous shopping centers and rwatauarants in Cottonwood Heights.

The apartment was nicely furnished and we'll provisioned with basic necessities--kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. The beds were amazing!! Incredibly comfortable and cozy, with top of the line bedding. The bathtub in the Queen room was perfect for my daughter; and the shower in the Master with it's dual shower heads was wonderful! Plenty of towels!! The hot tub was great after a long day at Lagoon.

Brian, the owner, was fabulous to work with. He addressed all my questions and concerns promptly, and truly made my family and me feel welcome to the rental. He was even kind enough to set the hot tub temperature so my 2 year old could enjoy it, too!

Would recommend this rental to anyone looking at staying in the area and will likely be using it again for future visits!

Great ski trip and loved the house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights and had a great time! The house is very comfortable, even for a family of 4 (our kids are 21 and 19). We had enough room to spread out and store all of our ski gear. We had epic snow (26" over 3 days), destroyed ourselves on the mountains and came back to a really nice hot tub and sauna. It was even warm enough one afternoon for beers and shacks outside on the patio. Great place for a reasonable price, we'll be back.

Exactly what I wanted - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly what I had imagined, only better. It's 30 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from the ski resorts. Not to mention you have an awesome view of the Wasatch Mountains sitting on the patio. Can't ask for much better. I was in town for 3 days to do a bunch of skiing and after a long day on the slopes it's nice to have just a short drive home. I cooked all of my own meals the whole time and it was super easy because this unit already had all of the essential cookware needed, and then some.

The option to use the sauna and hot tub in the evening was pretty great too. That's just an added bonus that you don't get at most chain hotels. Next time I'm in SLC skiing I'm definitely staying at this place again.

Nice quiet adequate easy in and out.

  • 4 of 5

Just right for three individuals or two couples. Worked out very well for us. Not far from many restaurants, ski rentals, and just 20 minutes from ski resorts: Brighton, Solitude, Alta, Snowbird. Very convenient!

Excellent place to ski different mountains on the same trip

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot-you drive right up to the door; the 2 Bdr 2 bath was a perfect size for 4 people. The hot tub was steps from the door on the deck, as was a grill and sauna. Previously had stayed on the mountain at snowbird; this was more comfortable, a much better value, and just a short ride from 5 different ski areas. And the owner, Brian, was extremely nice.
