Mountain & ski view condo w/shared pool and sauna!
If you like modern decor and amenities then you will love this Ketchum vacation rental. With flatscreen TVs in both bedrooms, access to ski lifts, and a boot dryer for ski boots, you may want to move in permanently. This two-bedroom condo sleeps up to four comfortably!
Situated just one block from the Warm Springs Lodge and Mt. Baldy, this home is a skier's haven. Grab your skis and walk to the lift, you'll be there in no time. Or take a short drive down to Ketchum (about two-and-a-half miles) and enjoy a meal. If you prefer not to drive, you can use Ketchum's free bus service to get around. Make sure to head up the mountain on Ketchum's new art car gondola, the first of its kind in the United States.
This home has it all: accessibility and modern conveniences. A built-in carved wood bar with marble counter and bar accessories as well as tumbled travertine make for a luxurious abode.
The spacious living area has a tan leather couch, matching armchair, and kilim rugs. A wood-burning fireplace takes center-stage with a beautiful 55" HD flatscreen TV above. Sliding glass doors lead to a small patio with two red deck chairs. You can sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine while watching people ski down the slopes.
Heading to the open and inviting kitchen, one spies an intricate built-in carved wood bar with a marble counter that displays beautiful glassware and bar accessories. In the kitchen, guests can dine at the four-person dining room set with red leather dining chairs or at the Himalayan marble breakfast bar. Grab a snack from the stainless steel fridge or whip up a gourmet meal in the well-equipped kitchen.
Head down the hall to the two bedrooms. The master boasts a four-poster metal bed with cream coverlet, wall-mounted flatscreen TV, and a gorgeous Asian-inspired armoire. The ambiance is clean yet elegant. Across the hall, a sliding glass shoji screen leads into a bathroom featuring bamboo floors, a wooden vanity, and a bathtub. The second bedroom boasts two twin beds and a wall-mounted flatscreen TV. The second bathroom is just across the hall.
The condo also boasts free WiFi, a ski locker, a boot dryer for two pairs of ski boots, and some games and books. Outside, guests can enjoy the sauna. There's also a shared pool available for you! Parking passes for up to two vehicles can be issued for the duration of your stay.
Sun Valley is just outside your door. Visitors flock to the area year-round but especially in winter for the myriad of ski opportunities. The valley boasts great dining and apres ski spots to warm your cold feet. Shopping, hiking, and biking abound. The town of Ketchum is an entry-way to the Sawtooth National Forest as well as the home to the Ernest Hemingway Memorial.
Great location. Perfect spot for our family of four.

This condo is well appointed, comfortable & in a great location. The pool is steps away and heated. There is also a cute patio bar just around the corner.

The unit is charming, clean and well-stocked. The owners would do better with a different managing company, however.
There is NO AC! The outside temperature was in the nineties for the four days we were there. But the inside temperature of the unit was over a 100 when we arrived, with no ventilation. Sleeping in the heat was extremely difficult, and we had to spend most of the day away from the unit (to find air conditioning) as the heat was unbearable. The deceptive web posting NEVER mentions that AC isn’t available.
We are sorry to see this guest was so uncomfortable with their stay. This unit is not advertised as having air conditioning. We do recommend guests search out homes with amenities that are vital to their comfort during their stay or call in for assistance to do so. Thank you!

Very well-appointed and the location is great for warm springs trail access in the summer. We stayed for a week, so these things were not optimal: 1) the 2nd bedroom had very little closet space that you had to climb over a bed to get to and no drawers. 2) the laundry description made me think it was available in the unit, but it was a coin-op in a locked laundry room by the pool. Again, had we stayed for a weekend, it would have been fine for our family. I would choose something different for longer than 2 nights next time.

Nice condo in great location. Well appointed and easy to access. We enjoyed the view of the hills and the area was very quiet.
Mark H.Apr 2018
This place is the absolute best. Fantastic location, great price, if I could purchase a condo this would be the one! We will be back next year and for many years there after!
Natalie M.Feb 2018
Very clean and tidy. Enjoyed the stay. The complimentary firewood was a plus, as was the second bundle that showed up on the back porch. Plenty of utensils, dishes, and cutlery. Comfortable stay. Thank you!

Excellent location, very clean awesome hot tub.
Geoffrey L.Jan 2018
We were impressed with the decor of the condo. Great taste and a nice mountain feel. We appreciated having the fireplace and wood provided. The location couldn't be more convenient. Literally a half block to Warm Springs.

This was our first trip to Sun Valley. The condo is really close to the lifts on Baldy and was very convenient. Compared to other resorts, Sun Valley is very uncrowded and relaxed (e.g., no searching for a seat at a table to sit down for lunch on the mountain). Skiing was decent for the first couple of days, but the last couple of days the snow was very hard (as an Eastern skier, it was close to "ice"). The old timers on the mountain complained that snow making was not activated even though it was cold enough. I was disappointed with the lack of snow making especially since one of the main reasons I traveled cross-country to Sun Valley was because they were ranked 2nd in Ski magazine for grooming. I kind of feel like the conditions were not much better than those in PA. After going out West for several years (e.g., Whistler, Steamboat, Alta), my honest opinion is that ski conditions in the West are really not that much better than in the East. Now I have only been out West 7 times for one week each so I may have been unlucky, but I don't think it is worth it considering the travel time and the ski conditions. I don't think that Eastern skiers should think they are missing something by not going out West.

Property is just as advertised. Perfect for our skiing vacation. Very short walk to the Warm Spring base and bus stop. Buses were very dependable and made navigation of the area a breeze.

This is a very well appointed & clean place, has all of the things you need to be comfortable.
David And Sheri N.Sep 2017
The condo was clean and well appointed. It was thoughtfully decorated and furnished to anticipate the needs of guests. The landscaping around the property was lovely and added to the peaceful tranquil atmosphere. My husband and I had a wonderful extended weekend and will definitely try to come back.
Tracy T.Aug 2017
The view from the condo is great. We looked right up at the ski slopes. We happened to be there in the summer but the location would be great for winter because it is within walking distance of the Greyhawk lift.
Donna W.Jul 2017
Clean, comfortable and great location!
Colleen K.Jun 2017
We loved the amenities, the pool/hot tub, and the friendly neighbors at this location. We definitely hope to return!

Convenient, quiet and clean
Sean E.Mar 2017
The property and its location were excellent. Would definitely recommend this property especially if skiing with young kids. The close proximity to the lifts was great.
Melinda K.Feb 2017
This was our first trip to Sun Valley and we absolutely loved it! If the condo was great and the property manager Don worked hard to make sure that our stay was wonderful. Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation!

You did not inform your renters on VRBO that the renter is responsible for paying for the fire wood. Cost of doing business ie in Hawaii owner pays for the air conditioning whether the renter keeps it on all day or not .
Mark O.Jan 2017
This is a great place to stay, if you love to ski this is your place. We highly recommend this condo.
Kimberly O.Jan 2017
Perfect location for skiers, short walk to Warm Springs Lodge. Clean, well-maintained property. Very easy, convenient place to stay.
Christopher M.Dec 2016
We loved the location of this property. Easiest access to the mountain but still a very easy drive into Ketchum. Don was extremely helpful.
Carl H.Nov 2016
It takes less than 2 minutes to walk from this comfortable condo to the chairlift at Warm Springs. The place is tastefully decorated. We would stay here again without hesitation.
Merrill N.Aug 2016
We love Sun Valley--we have come for over 40 years and are never disappointed.
Margaret H.Aug 2016
Absolutely lovely condo! Leather couches, comfy beds, great pool, easily accessible laundry (bring a roll of quarters), nicely located on edge of town - just perfect all the way around for our family of four. Would stay here again in a minute.
Amber W.Jun 2016
This is a nice rental with a great view and location. However, it was not cleaned thoroughly prior to our arrival. The master bath was very obviously not cleaned as evidenced by bathing products and used soap remaining and soap scum. There was also a dead spider and large fly in the tub. There were many small 'rolly polly'-type bugs on the master bedroom floor and in the living room. I had communicated this to vacasa during our stay but never received a reply. Aside from having to clean in addition to paying a cleaning fee, we enjoyed our stay in Ketchum very much.
We apologize that the cleaning was poorly done for this stay. The Property Manager has followed-up with the housekeeping team regarding the matter. There are insects that get in the home due to being in a forested area, but housekeeping will work on making sure they are all cleaned out prior to each guest arrival.
Michelle M.Apr 2016
Have stayed three times at the condo.
Will visit again.
Pictures are accurate. 2nd bedroom very small, but nice.
Ashley D.Apr 2016
We had a really great time. We loved the warm pool, great weather, skiing, apres skiing events, etc. The condo is really great because it's ground level and our kids could run around on the grass while we relaxed in the nice chairs provided. It's also really close to the ski lifts - just head out the door and you're pretty much there. We really had a fantastic time.
Barton P.Mar 2016
Sun Valley is a world class ski venue, but without the glitz and long lift lines of some of the more famous ski resorts. The terrain is challenging, but one can choose an easier way down the mountain if needed. The accommodations that my son and I spent a week in were first class all the way. The walk to the lift from the condo was flat and easily done. The pool is as warm as a hot tub. The sauna was also nice. The accommodations represented great bang for the buck. If I am lucky enough to ski here again, I will stay in these condos. Enough said.
Julie F.Mar 2016
Enjoyed our stay, this was the 2nd year we have stayed at this condo.... Very convient to all parts of sun valley

Very nice comfortable property. Had cable and internet problems when we first arrived. Property manager was very helpful in resolving the issue as quickly as could be done. Would stay here again.
Monte M.Apr 2015
the place is great for skiing, walk to the lift. it has everything you need in the kitchen+. The bedrooms are a little small.
Lisette B.Apr 2015
Wonderful accommodations that exceeded our expectations. My son left his medicines at the house on accident and the manager got them and drive them to our friends. So very helpful!
