“Great value for a clean comfy studio w/ full kitchen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I did a quick solo trip to do a little fishing, a little sleeping, a little chilling. This place was perfect, and for the money had Much more to offer than the bargain hotels. Lots of clean linens and towels, lots of dishes, pots, pans, etc. An older unit but very clean and well kept.

“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

person found this review helpful

This is a well maintained unit that's a bit old (however it has all of the essentials). The location is great, close to Von's for grocery shopping and near the walking path if you're there in the summer. It's small (a studio) but it's certainly fine for two additional people although 4 could fit if you have kids. Fireplace is nice although it was warm enough that we didn't need to use it. It was also very nice to use the spa in the evenings. The only negative is that the listing said it had wireless - but it really doesn't. Someone nearby had an "open wifi" which the owner was saying was available. Whoever that was, must have locked it down or possibly moved since there was no way to go wireless. This wasn't a huge problem for us (we went to a local wifi hotspot) but the owner should either drop the wireless listing or actually get his own wireless connection. All-in-all a great value in the off-season.

“Charming cozy condo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Found this cozy condo thru Trip Advisor and emailed the home owner about the place. Price was reasonable for a weekend stay with a $50 REFUNDABLE key deposit. Homeowner was very prompt with emailing and kept constant communication up until the arrival date.

We arrived late on a Friday night and was concerned about not being able to get the key to the condo. Turned out that they key was placed in a locker in the manager's office where we were able to access it 24 hrs. Had a bit of a problem trying to get the key from the locker while trying to follow the directions posted above the locker. Now looking back it may be because we were too tired after a long 7 hr drive.

The place is exactly like how it looks in the picture. Small (good for a party of 4 but we had 2 people so plenty of space) but very cozy. Place was clean and very well maintained. Bed was comfortable unlike some of those hotel bed where you keep tossing and turning the whole night. Bath room was well stock with towels, soap, and toilet paper with a few extra toiletry (sunscreen and rubbing alcohol). Kitchen was well stock with plates, utensils, pots and pans (although we did not cook but great for those who do cook). Refrigerator was new like the owner mentioned. Only issue we had with the kitchen was that there wasn't any paper towel, but then again I don't know if it was suppose to be provided or we had to bring our own.

Regarding the wifi: was mentioned that there is free wifi. We weren't able to find the wifi that was provided, so that was a little bummer there. We end up using my friend's Verizon hot spot instead. We tried contacting the owner about the wifi to no available. It wasn't that much an issue but if you're here and want to use the internet, you might want to contact the owner if it doesn't work.

Overall, great cozy unit that won't disappoint you. Will be planning another visit to Mammoth for the winter months and will definitely want to rent this place if its available.

“Cute, cozy, and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This studio condo was more spacious than a hotel room, and it also had a nice kitchen where we could have some small meals.

We were initially a bit hesitant that the owner asked to pay the full balance upfront via Paypal, but everything worked out just fine. The owner is quite responsive over email, and confirmed payment shortly after we sent it.

I've stayed in a number of vacation condos and while this one may not be very fancy, it is CLEAN, functional, and economical (which is more important, in my opinion). Clean, fresh linens were folded and ready for us to put on the extra futon; the dishes in the cabinets were ready to eat/drink from (not always the case in rentals). It's also centrally located in Mammoth, and everything in the town is within a quick drive. We would stay here again.

“Great economical lodging- but with charm.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We stayed at the condo over Christmas break. The decor is charming, the mattress and bedding seemed new. For our family of four, the Futon was far more comfortable than any conventional sofa bed.

Price was extremely reasonable - especially considering the holiday season. Until we found this condo we were planning on only one week, but stayed 12 nights for less than similar properties would have been for 7. We saved money by cooking every dinner- the kitchen is well equipped although small. A dishwasher would have been nice but it wasn't a deal breaker. The kids enjoyed having a fire in the fireplace.

Location is excellent. Vons is within walking distance for groceries. It's a short bus ride to Eagle Lodge or a reasonable drive to the other ski base lodges (Driving Meridian and Minaret has less traffic issues than the lodgings on Main)
