Great condo in a great location! Very clean and had everything we needed. Would prefer check in information sooner than the day of arrival.
Gabriela L. May 2021
My family and I stayed here for Mother’s Day weekend! It was very cozy and comfortable! Plenty of room for us to hang out in! The kitchen was great and filled with plenty of kitchen tools to prep your favorite meals! The location was perfect! Only 1 mile from Rancheria Falls which was a great hike and Huntington Lake was just below the hill! Definitely recommend!

My family stays in these condos about once a year and we’ve actually stayed in this one in the past. The previous reviews were harsh and did not reflect our experience. The place was clean, tons of cooking utensils, WiFi was amazing!, even had cable tv channels and a DVD player. We had a great time! My only wish was that the second bedroom had bunk beds instead of a queen bed: my teenage son didn’t want to sleep in abed with his friend.

Our family agreed that this was our favorite condo and such a great price!

2 men unlocked the door and walked into condo without knocking - said they were maintenance
Ants every morning and every evening
Lights in living room - 50% burned out
Tub is master bath does not drain. Up to 6" of water which left an ugly brown ring around the tub. Hand to rinse feet after getting out
Door on cabinet in hallway fell off
Drawers in refrigerator would not open - had to pull up and jerk on them very hard
1 hanger in master closet
No internet - every neighboring condo had it as there was no cell service in the area so you needed internet for wifi calling.
TV control did not work - could not watch TV
Kitchen utensils broken and outdated
Pot and pans were outdated
One trash bag in trash container - no others once that was full
drawers in the kitchen would not stay on tracks
Had to scrub the BBQ for 10 minutes before we could cook because it was so dirty.
One of the worst BnBs I have ever stayed in!!!
Manager response:
Hi, Steve! We appreciate such thorough feedback and apologize your experience was not as positive as we strive for. The pest issue has been cleared up, bulbs have been replaced, the master drain has been addressed, the fridge and kitchen drawers are all opening, and the utensils are in good condition. We will be working on the hallways cabinet. Internet and cable are currently unavailable in the area due to fire. Thank you!

Stayed in a few condos around Lake Huntington and this unit is one of the nicer places. Very clean with newer carpet and furniture. Cookware needs to be updated and the deck is very small which is unfortunate given the great views. No WiFi in the unit. Would definitely stay here again.
Jonathan C. Jun 2020
Had a great time at this condo. Only drawback was no WiFi or Cable TV for the kids in the evening. Other than that it was a great place to stay. Look forward to staying again.
Jeff P. Jun 2020
We loved the layout and the location. It was generally clean with a few exceptions. The toilets were dirty and there were spiders in both bathrooms. One shower leaked all night long. There was not adequate cleaning supplies to sanitize kitchen counters after prepping meals or to sweep the floor if needed. Cooking utensils and pots & pans were subpar. Power went out for two of four days from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm - planned outages the owner should have known about and notified Vacasa. This unit is for sale and obviously not well kept up other than some basics.
Clinton i. Jan 2020
the condo was very clean. the furniture, carpet and beds were in great condition. my only complaint is the pots and pans for the kitchen. the main reason we chose a condo is for the kitchen and the pots and pans that are provided are way past usable. every teflon pan was scratched to the metal and the pots were aluminium relics from someones 60's camping gear. Only one large pot had a lid and had to use a plate as a lid for one of the smaller pots. please upgrade with some basic new pots and pans and you have a 5 star condo.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Clinton! We have notified the owner of your suggestions for their consideration. We do hope to see you again!

This condo was previously amazing (see my prior review) but needs small improvements to return to that quality level. Several light bulbs were not working throughout the condo. Four of nine lights in the living room didn’t work, two of four of the bathroom lights didn’t work as well as one kitchen light. This was mentioned in an earlier review and has not not yet been corrected which makes me feel like Vacasa and the owners don’t care about the property. They definitely need new blankets for the beds, matching silverware, new pots, pans, as well as updated cooking implements. There used to be cozy blankets on the beds but now it’s plain sheets and a stiff quilt. I’ve read other reviews complaining about the quality of beds, but they are actually quite good. They are firm mattresses, so maybe the other reviewer had a problem with that, but the beds are of high quality.
For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE repair the horribly loud and irritating fan that comes on in conjunction with the bathroom downstairs. It had been reported before with no improvement. Despite these setbacks, this is still my favorite condo in the complex, so much so, that we are returning in a few weeks.
Manager response:
Hi, Paula! We appreciate your feedback. Maintenance has handled the fan and lights, and housekeeping will be assessing the blankets and bedding so we can ensure a quality guest experience. Thank you!

Had an awesome stay. Great space for families and grandkids loved the stairs (me not so much). Would rent again! Never did find the pool/spa and would have loved a map to get there. Highly recommend for any occasion.

Everything was great.
Norm H. Jul 2019
It was a great location and the condo was well-stocked easy to maneuver. Very comfortable sleeping Arrangements and quiet.
Juell F. May 2019
Comfortable, clean, and well stocked. Seriously THE best stocked vacation rental kitchen I have ever seen and loved all the cozy blankes. We will be back!

The Blue Jay condo is super cute, well stocked, and has all the necessary amenities for a great getaway. We stayed for a ski weekend at China Peak and found it to be perfectly located, easy access even in the snow, and a beautiful location. We arranged for a late checkout and found that our entry access code was no longer working but when I called Vacasa, they helped me access the backup lockbox and get back in. It was unfortunate to have this snafoo with their system, but I’m glad AT&T had service at the doorstep, that it wasn’t snowing, and that Vacasa was very responsive. It might be helpful to describe the bed configuration more clearly. This condo has two bedrooms each with a queen bed. Additionally there is a loft type sleeping area next to the kitchen that sleeps one person on a futon-like pad. The “sleeper sofa/futon” description was a bit confusing because it wasn’t clear if this was in a bedroom or the living room and actually it’s neither. The “L” shaped couch in the living room is a standard couch not a sleeper sofa...just to clarify. None of this detracted from our stay and we loved our getaway! We’ll come back again.

Very close to the ski area.

Clean, quiet, well stocked, nice furnishings, first time we have rented a condo, great experience.
billy slade f. Dec 2018
Bedrooms were very comfortable, everything was clean and well prepared. Kitchen was a bit out dated and the lock combo wasn’t set when we got there so we had to call in. Otherwise great, living room was spacious and comfortable as well.
Caroline S. Dec 2018
Enjoyed our stay. Walking distance to the store and saloon!! Can’t wait to come back again soon!
Kimberly H. Aug 2018
Very cozy and quiet.

We’ve been renting condos in this development for almost 35 years and have seen many. This in one of the nicest. The condo was clean, well furnished and very comfortable overall. Lots of books which I appreciate. Kitchen was well appointed. Beds OK not great. Could have used a broom for kitchen area unless you want to haul vacuum up from downstairs. The blinds over slider were down when we arrived and around 10 light bulbs were out making the unit very dim. Maintenance arrived within a day and hauled off blind (will need to be replaced)and replaced most of bulbs but were unable to replace all. It was made clear there was no wi-fi but other reviewers mentioned good cell signal that could be used as a hot spot. Turns out only good signal for Verizon. 4 of 5 of us had AT&T. Between no signal and very weak signal for us. It’s hard to see the deck in the photos, but it’s one of the original small decks, about 3’ x 6’. There is a nice little round barbecue in one corner, no other furniture. We brought folding chairs. One fits comfortably, two if a little crowded. Overall impression very favorable.
Larry G. Jul 2018
Our family loved the blue jay. So quiet. So peaceful. The perfect getaway. I am almost hesitant to write this simply because I don’t want anyone else to know about it! We went for my daughters 12th birthday at her request. She loves to fish. My girls loved it so much that my younger daughter has already requested to go back for her birthday in March!
ROBERT P. Jun 2018
It was a nice clean home, near Lakeshore and other area around Huntington Lake.
Tom B. May 2018
This condo was in a great locatin, well kept, and clean.
Unfortunately, the hot tub at the Rec area was uncovered and dirty. The code we were given did not work access it anyway, and there was no firewood bin to get wood for the fireplace.
The condo was in a quiet location, but the beds were a bit hard, the upper bedroom could here all water flowing in the home, and the showers were so-so.
Otherwise, it was fine (cooking utensils were not great either.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see our guest did not enjoy their stay with us. We apologize about the pool; the association did not make us aware the area would be closed. We have purchased new utensils. Thank you!
Patricia A. Apr 2018
Wonderful stay, the home is clean and spacious. Fully stocked kitchen huge closets extra blankets, as mentioned in the property description there is no wifi which allowed us an actual escape from work and the constant ringing of the phone :)
Definitely recommend that you take groceries and drinks before heading out since the nearest store is about 30 min down the mountain.
Paula M. Mar 2018
We have stayed in the Blue Jay condo at least once a year for the last several years and we love it here! Everything is "first home" quality meaning that all the furniture, bedding, kitchen appliances and supplies are the type of quality you buy for your primary home. No dusty, old, disgusting second hand sofas or bedding. You know what I mean. I think the owner is a photographer and artist and it shows in the quality and design of this condo. The bedding is crisp and clean with warm, yummy blankets in the bedrooms and living room. The fireplace is great and you can get free wood from their woodshed. There is no wifi but there is excellent 4G cell coverage so we just use our cell phone hot spot. It works so well that my husband is able to do all his work remotely without groaning that his connection is too slow. Vacasa is an excellent management company. They answer the phone within a minute and have all the info you need right at their fingertips. Book it, you will love it too!!!
