Comfortable and Clean
Great spot, walking distance to village and ski resort. Enjoyed using the Jacuzzi. Thank you!
Clean, warm, convenient, with everything we needed.
This place was great. The heat was very warm, which was great as it was very cold outside. The shuttle to skiing was super convenient.
The unit itself was very nice. It was clean. Had all the utensils we needed. Everything worked well.
I highly recommend it.
Great Powder Weekend
Easy rental process and easy access at Squaw Base. Owner helpful and very courteous about our stay. Thx u much
Great to hear!
Cozy place with great, close location to the slopes
The unit is clean and comfortable. The kitchenette includes 2 burners for simple meals, a small refrigerator, microwave, pots and pans, cooking utensils, corkscrew, etc. My husband and I had our 9 year old daughter with us who slept on the sofa. Perfect for a couple, single person, or small family. There is a ski closet right outside the door to keep skis in and a convenient shuttle to Squaw that takes just a few minutes drive to get there. (We never had to wait for the shuttle...it was always there when we got there....It runs a loop and I think is available every 10-15 minutes.) Our daughter enjoyed the heated pool and we liked the 4 hot tubs. We also swam in the pool and it was a comfortable temp. 2 hot tubs are very close to the unit, maybe 20 feet away. The pool and 2 other hot tubs are a short walk near the lobby. I think the shuttle runs to Squaw til 5:30 so if you wanted to shuttle to the Squaw Village for dinner you could and walk back. We didn't try it though as we ended up wanting to eat in, but we considered doing so and saw others doing so from the complex. The walk seems well lit, but a flashlight might be handy. There is light cleaning service daily (like a hotel) with fresh towels, tidy up of the rooms, etc. There is a door separating the bedroom and the bathroom hallway and a door separating the bedroom from the front room, if that privacy is important to you. I met another mom in the complex who mentioned when she has stayed at a similiar complex nearby (not OVI), that there was a similar layout but the bedroom and front room did not separate with a door (so not as private). But this unit and those at OVI, do have doors. We enjoyed our stay very much and would stay there again.
Great value if you want to ski Squaw
We have rented this property from this owner twice and have also stayed in the same complex a couple other times. We love it. Its the perfect place for a small family (max 2 kids) if you are keen on skiing Squaw. Everyone can be on different schedules since its close to lifts (I walk but the kids always wait for the shuttle which goes back and forth every 5-10 minutes). The unit is very small for a 1 bedroom and not luxurious but is very comfortable and functional, and offers good privacy for the bedroom. Pool and hot tubs are great, and they have decent game room and small gym (though something was wrong with the pool heater this last trip) . Folks who work there are very on it and friendly.
Of course key factors for us are we would prefer a small place next to the mountain rather than a larger place a drive away, and we are always trying to save money. The price is key as the Squaw Valley Lodge which is right next to the lifts is nicer - better rooms, pool, gym etc. - but its just too expensive for us. Maybe its rationalizing but we have also become attached to the friendly folks and funky charm at OVI. Some parts of the place could use a face lift (warn carpet in the outdoor hallways) but generally its well maintained, and for us the place just works.
I agree with Dan's review, including the statement about OVI being not quite of the same standard as Squaw Valley Lodge. I would however underline that both are great choices for staying near the base of Squaw, and SVL hotel rooms and studio's have disadvantages compared with 1BR at OVI. And i agree with the comments about great friendly service at OVI!
