About Anne and David

We met in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, and lived the dream, teaching skiing there in the 1970's. We then lived in San Francisco, Lake Oswego, OR, and Encinitas/La Jolla, CA, where we raised our 3 children. 22 years ago we first came to Sun Valley to ski with our children and so fell in love with the area that we bought a condo in West Ketchum. In 2004 we upgraded to the Snow Star and have enjoyed Christmas, skiing, and winter, as well as summer hiking and biking here ever since. We recently moved to Sun Valley full time, and decided that it makes sense to rent our beautiful condo so guests can enjoy it and the area as much as we have! Since we are local, we are easy to reach and offer assistance as needed.

Anne and David purchased this condo in 2004

Why Anne and David chose Ketchum

We were familiar with this location, as our first condo was nearby. We knew we wanted to be near Baldy and town. We were sold the first time we saw the condo! It's views, light and space were perfect. We particularly like the gym feature, which not many complexes in this location have.

What makes this condo unique

Ski, hike, bike and fish out the front door! So convenient. When our kids were young, they loved the freedom to walk into town on their own. So nice to stroll home on a summer evening after a sumptuous dinner at one of Sun Valley's fabulous restaurants.

Enjoyed our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in late March of 2018 for some spring skiing. The Condo shown and described by the owners is accurately represented. It is large and bright, lots of room for the seven of us, everyone had a bed. The condo is well equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen especially. The master BR is nice with a large bathroom, double sinks and walk in closet. The Owners put a lot of thought into the place, small example, a single key to open the Condo and Ski Locker. The location is simply a 10 minute walk to town or to the River Run lift. We didn't use the shuttle bus that stopped every 30 minutes right out front, but that is another option to the lifts. There was a National Ski Race going on that weekend with lots to do in town. We enjoyed our stay and would book here again!

The condo is an excellent location right up the road from the river trail.

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent walking distance to river run lodge and to town. The condo was stocked with everything needed to be able to cook all your meals at home. The hosts were very responsive. The common areas were very spacious and provided plenty of seating. The beds were very comfortable. Overall an excellent experience. I would highly recommend this condo.

Excellent location very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had our family of 6 stay at this location for a ski vacation. The location is a 5 to 7 minute easy level walk via the river walk path. Realistically, it's not much further than Sun Valley River Run Plaza parking lot. If you can't make the walk you maybe should reconsider skiing as a hobby. Close enough to walk into town, although we drove. Its a two minute drive to town. The 3rd floor unit itself is very comfortable. Kitchen, family room and bedrooms are all as pictured. Jacuzzi tub in the master was a big plus to warm your bones after a day of skiing. Ski locker in the garage was huge for storing skis and snowboards. Views are great. Owner and property management company was great on communication prior our arrival, no surprises.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at this condo and we look forward to returning. It has everything we needed for a ski getaway for 6 people. Clean, comfortable and walking distance to town and to the lifts. The hot tub, parking spot and ski locker are all a bonus. Really appreciate the high level of natural light and great views. Highly recommend.
