Our focus: provide every guest with the three most important things that we look for in our Airbnb travels; cleanliness, comfort, and convenience. This fully equipped private apartment is 20 MIN FROM 4 OF UTAH’S GREATEST SKI RESORTS and from downtown SLC, 10 min from the South Towne Expo Centre and Real Salt Lake Stadium, and 5 min from Wasatch Mountain hiking/biking trails and a wide variety of shopping and dining. A 95-point checklist is used to clean to the highest standards for every stay.

The space

As Airbnb travelers ourselves we know what makes the difference between a positive experience and a gross one. We call them the three C’s: Cleanliness, Comfort, and Convenience.

CONVENIENCE (Outdoors, city conveniences, and/or convention? It doesn’t get better than this.)
SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING!!! Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, and Solitude are less than 20 minutes away; Park City, Canyons, and Sundance are 45 minutes; and Snowbasin and Powder Mountain are an hour.
We are minutes from all that Salt Lake City and the Wasatch Mountains have to offer. We are literally 5 min from Wasatch Mountain hiking/biking trails and a wide variety of shopping and dining. My favorite exercise is a trail run in the mountains after work. We’ve got several shopping centers with grocery, restaurants, ski rental shops, and coffee shops within blocks of the house. If you’re like most of our guests, you’ll be happy to know that Trader Joe’s is also just 5 minutes away. Movie theaters too.
The Real Salt Lake Stadium, new Hale Center Theater, and the South Towne Expo Centre (for those coming for conventions) are 10 minutes away. Downtown SLC and all that it has to offer (Utah Jazz, U of U, City Creek Center, Salt Palace, Temple Square) is a 20-minute drive.
For your down days when you’re relaxing from your adventures but still want to get outside, one of the city’s greatest parks is a block away. It offers baseball diamonds, soccer fields, tennis courts, an amazing sledding hill, running trails, green space, play structures and pavilions.

CLEANLINESS (As in, cleaner than your last stay at a hotel)
You might say that we are obsessive compulsive about clean. We created a 95-point checklist for our cleaners and we personally inspect that each item has been done prior to each stay (see photos for the full checklist). Some examples of how we go the extra mile prior to every stay for you include; washing the shower curtain and bath mats, vacuuming or mopping every square inch of flooring (not just spot cleaning), using sanitizable bed and pillow covers under fresh linens, and sanitizing all surfaces, door knobs, cabinet knobs, and light switches. Everything in the apartment from furnishings to linens was purchased specifically for it to be used as a vacation rental; no using Grandma’s hand me down bath towel here.

COMFORT (Our goal is to make Sandy feel like home)
This is a 1400 square foot, private basement apartment equipped with your comfort in mind. We love to recommend our favorite outdoor adventures and eateries in the area so you get the hometown experience. Then when you come home you can grab a book or board game from the library and sit next to the warmth of the fireplace or relax on the couch in front of one of the two flat screen TVs with cable.
If you like staying in to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with a full sized stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, garbage disposal, toaster, Keurig coffee machine, blender, cook ware, and dining sets. The apartment includes a washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. If we haven’t thought of something that you need, our front door is just 20 steps away, so we’ll bring it over to you.
The open concept floor plan in the great room accommodates quality family or socializing time while the bedroom and library provide privacy from the rest of your group when desired. (The library is considered the second bedroom and entry into and out of the apartment is through the library.) Central air keeps the apartment nice and cool in the summer and a toasty gas fire place keeps the entire space cozy in the winter. Daylight windows (no window well) keep the space bright and feeling like main floor living.
Two off-street parking spots will be made available on the side driveway to the house. The entry to the apartment is down a covered stairway from the side driveway. Accommodations for bike and ski storage during your stay can be made in the garage off the side driveway.

FYI - Our family lives on the main floor and second story of the home. The apartment is completely private from the main floor with a private entrance from the exterior of the home, but you will hear the occasional noise from our children.

Guest access

Guests will be provided a key to the apartment to come and go as they please.

Interaction with guests

We will meet guests on the day of arrival and get you oriented to the space and area. We will be available to answer any questions you may have. Other than that we'll stay out of your hair.

This is the basement floor of a house in a quiet residential area. Though it's a basement, it has ample light. There is a bedroom with a large double bed and 2 bunk beds, and another room with a pullout couch that makes a very comfortable bed. A very spacious living/dining room. It is very convenient to Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons, and close enough to downtown that you can go in for dinner without any problem. There are supermarkets and other stores within a 2-3 minute drive. We didn't see much of Jacob and Stacy, but one morning after it had snowed we went out to find Stacy and her 4-year-old daughter, Penny, cleaning the snow off our car. That kind of sums up their attitude. I would definitely stay there again.

Jake and stacy's place is the perfect location for ski access to all of the amazing resorts in Salt Lake! Nice, clean, spacious. Very comfortable, and very nice hosts!

Super convenient to the Cottonwood Canyons ski areas. Quiet residential neighborhood so don't expect nightlife close by but you'll be too tired from skiing anyway. Large and comfortable basement apartment, spotlessly clean. Jacob and Stacy were super flexible and welcoming. Five stars.

What a great place! We have one goal and one goal only on our family escapades and that's Skiing LLC... Jacob & Stacy's place is PERFECT for either LCC or BCC. Alta is 22min. Door to GMD no traffic... The apartment is wonderful. There were just two of us so it was huge! The kitchen is well stocked and I really appreciated the higher end pans - we cook! Laundry, tons of closet space with lots of hangers, coat rack, super easy parking, clean clean clean:-) Grocery store around the corner with a great organic/healthful foods section (Wholefoods is just 10min away). Wifi is good and strong - we travel with an AppleTV and it worked perfectly - movie night every night! You will hear kids above, mostly over the kitchen - but it's not a issue for us.. we are kids too!:-) Sweet couple, great family - we will stay again!

The stay at Stacy and Jacob's worked out great for our weekend. It was conveniently located for our trip and was comfortable for our family needs.

We all had an incredible stay! Stacy & Jacob were so accommodating, the location was 20 min from our convention and it was located right off the highway and so close to natural food grocers and everything we needed. We saved money by cooking food and packing lunches and that made it so much more affordable for us! The place was so clean and slept 8 people which also helped us to cut down on costs! We will definitely be staying with them for next years convention.

AWESOME!!! This rental was more than what we had expected. There were 6 adults, 2 kids, and 2 toddlers. We were all very comfortable during our entire stay. Stacy even brought us a bowl of fruit which came in handy for the kids. The neighborhood is clean and quiet with a park just around the corner. The rental itself is a newly remodeled and has a calm, peaceful feeling to it. Jacob and Stacy left a binder with all sorts of useful information for the area which included numbers and addresses for a variety of restaurants. I would definitely stay here again. The price was a lot cheaper and more comfortable than renting out two hotel rooms near the airport. Also, everyone liked the fact we we could all just lounge around and be around each other after our long day. Thank you Jacob and Stacy :) If we are ever in town again we would gladly stay here again.

We love Utah living for the safe family friendly atmosphere, it's four distinct seasons, and access to outdoor recreation. We love taking the family out for a hike or quick over-nighter in the mountains. We love to travel to new places, and do our best to live life like it's an adventure.
