We were told the place sleeps 6. Haha. We have 3 teenage boys who are 6 feet tall. We arrive to find 2 teeny bedrooms with queen sized beds - a shelf that is called a "loft" - more laughs - with a twin pull out and a living room that seats 3 and oh, one of the kids has to sleep on the couch. I really think a place that says it 'sleeps' 6 should have actual beds for 6 people, and if two people have to share a bed, this should be made clear. I also think that the living room should have enough seating for the amount of people staying. My husbnad and i immediately went off to find a Hotel room because there was simply no way we were going to have a good time crammed into such a tiny space with all the ski gear etc...
Everything is TINY - we are normal sized people - even down to the bathrobes which were a nice touch but would fit maybe a 9 year old girl. I am not sure what these people are thinking. If we couldnt afford to go rent another room or if there hadnt been one available, our vacation could easily have really sucked. OH and those photos are FICTION - that place looks nice and spacious - like a normal condo, not a nicely appointed closet. I would say renter be very leary about this place. Also, this is not mere steps form the Gondola - let us be clear that it is as far away from the Gondola as you can get and still be in the village, a really long walk in ski boots with skis. I think there is a fair amount of misrepresentation going on here - the place was clean and nicely decorated but would be right for 2 couples and small child, NOT a couple with 3 big kids.
