Jolene S., Sandy, UT
We discovered your homes several years ago, and have stayed with you at least the last 5 years. We are too large a group for a motel because we like to join together in many things we do, and it is best in this venue. We stayed at City Creek Villa in downtown Salt Lake. It was our 29th annual Mother Daughter Weekend. On our weekend we like to spend lots of our time in the home we rent. Our group consists of 3 sisters (our mother passed away in 2003), our sister-in-law, each of our daughters, some daughters-in-law, granddaughters, and a few babies below the age of 1. We laugh, shop, eat, go out to a production of some kind, play games, watch family videos, laugh some more, exchange gifts, and generally have a ball in our annual event.
Cody (Utah.com), Salt Lake City, UT
Thank you so much! We had the time of our lives over the weekend. My family and I stayed at the Majesty Cove home and it was by far the biggest, nicest, and most beautiful home we have ever stayed in. My kids loved the game and theatre room and my wife loved the enormous kitchen. The customer service we received was the icing on the cake. We felt that Utah's Best Vacation Rentals #1 goal was to ensure that my family and I had a memorable experience and we did! Thank you for everything.
Daleena G., Pineville, OR
We stayed at Gathering Place. The house was the perfect size and is in a great location. The play area outside was awesome for our young kids. We had our family reunion here.
Claudia R., Ogden, UT
I wanted to let you know that everyone thought that the Skyline house was fabulous overall and were so happy with the decor, the beds, kitchen outfitting, etc. Your maintenance man was very pleasant and polite. Our friend who used Vic's A-line Ground Transportation service enjoyed her ride to the airport from Park City. She said that the driver he sent was entertaining and excellent at his job. Vic was very professional when I dealt with him on the phone. Thank you most of all for the excellent customer service and support you provided us since I booked our stay and through the end. The booking agent I dealt with on the phone was excellent also. I would certainly recommend your company to anyone seeking a short term vacation rental in the area. I am willing to be a "reference by e-mail" but would like advanced notification as to whom you have given this e-mail address.
Crystal R., Conroe, TX
Accommodations at Majesty Cove Mansion were fantastic! Our group really enjoyed their time in Salt Lake. Loved the easy check in/out.
Stan H., Pear City, HI
We stayed at Weber Canyon-Side Retreat. There were more than enough bathroom and kitchen supplies. Everyone were very pleased. In October 2012, we were looking for a vacation rental near Weber State University that would accommodate 12-14 family members from Hawaii for our daughter's graduation. It was to be a 'SURPRISE' for our daughter who expected the family to stay in a motel. The rental agent/representative returned my calls promptly with understanding of my financial budget and situation and who later accepted my reasonable offer. April 2013, our daughter still had no idea of this surprise. When she picked us up at SLC airport, I informed her that I needed to deliver a package to a co-worker's family home near WSU. Upon our arrival at the Weber Canyon-side Retreat, my daughter said in the car, "Wow Dad, they must be rich". We walked over to the front door and I said to her, "SURPRISE!! We're staying here for the week." She was puzzled and confused then shocked in happiness jumping up and down. Of course, hugging mommy and daddy saying, "Thank you soo much". Thank you UBVR's Nelson & Wendy for this awesome and wonderful vacation/graduation experience for our whole family. Aloha & Mahalo.
Gerald M., St. Leonard, MD
We stayed at Weber Mountain-Side Retreat in Ogden Canyon. We really enjoyed relaxing and playing pool in the evenings. We also enjoyed the neighborhood. We felt safe, and enjoyed many morning runs. The location was great! The views were awesome too! My son was visiting Utah State University and University of Utah. We would definitely recommend your company to friends and family and would definitely stay at this home again.
Erin H., Salt Lake City, UT
We stayed at Pines/Park twin home (both units). The house was great and fit our needs perfectly. It was beautiful inside and out and well stocked with the essentials for a multi-day stay. Internet was spotty at best and coffee maker in one of the sides was cracked. Guest service agent was very good. We would definitely recommend your homes to friends and family and would stay again. Just work on getting a more reliable internet connection.
Erin L., Midland, MI
We stayed at Grand Peaks Pool House. We've never rented a house before. We were in town for a business trip to help launch a collegiate Cru movement at U of U and Westminster. We loved the house! It worked perfect for the size of our party and was so convenient having a basketball court area in back, two kitchens, and ample space/beds for people to sleep. Also the open dining room and kitchen upstairs was a huge plus!!!
We stayed this year at your Pines/Park Duplex. This is our 2nd year in a row staying in one of your homes. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub chilling after a hard day skiing. We came to town for skiing and had a past positive experience with your firm. The aspects of your product and service we were most satisfied with were: Quality. price, cleanliness, location, number of guests that could be accommodated, and the home's amenities. The value received was much more than we paid. We would definitely rent this home again and recommend your company to friends and family.
Anja V., Netherlands
We rented Union Pines/Park twin home for a business conference. We loved the hot tubs outside, it was perfect to relax after a day's hard work, and we also loved the fact that we could all have dinner in one of the houses (all 17 of us) and have barbecue-nights :).
Greg G., Riverside, CT
I was thrilled with the property, Mountain Pointe town home. We came for skiing and snowboarding at Snowbird Resort. I think everything was in good condition, clean and worked well. I have absolutely no complaints. I think the quality of the condo is excellent. I was thrilled with it as were the 8 others who stayed there with me. I also think Wendy (guest service) was excellent to work with. She made things so easy for us. She offered us valuable information on the nearby mountains and equipment rentals and discount deals that we would not otherwise have received being that we are from the east coast. Wendy was available to answer questions. She helped us secure rental equipment which was delivered directly to our condo. It was great equipment and so easy. Overall, I think Wendy was a huge help and I would be disappointed if I had to deal with anyone else next year when we return!
Meggan D., Riverton, UT
We stayed at the Gathering Place. This home was perfect for our family reunion. The home was immaculate. The hot tub was clean, but the water seemed a little filmy. Supplies were plentiful and we were satisfied with our stay. The home is very spacious, the furnishings and decorations are simple, but beautiful. The kitchen is big enough to have lots of people preparing food and not getting in one another's way. We really enjoyed the back yard. It is really big and gave the kids plenty of room to run around and play.
Dan K., Bristol, TN
We stayed at Trapper's Ridge in Eden, UT for a team competition in the area. This was a great home and location for our group/team. We were very pleased and it allowed us to relax together in a very comfortable environment. The home was in very good shape however, we found a few dishes in the cupboards that were dirty. Looks like they may have been run through the dishwasher but still had significant amounts of food stuck to them. Other than these minor issues the place was perfect. W would definitely stay in this home again and recommend your homes to our friends and family.
Erin L., Midland, MI
We rented two homes, the Union Park home and Grand Peaks Pool House for a convention at the Salt Palace with 33 of my business associates. Everything went very well. The transportation everyday on the bus was great. The houses were great. It just would have been better if we were all within walking distance of the convention center. The catered desserts were very good and fed everyone.
Larry R., Dayville, CT
We were in town for family events and stayed at Sugarhouse Square. We always got prompt service when we call. John is awesome! The bed broke but John came quickly and fixed it. The location was ideal. It would help to have a list of nearby stores for shopping. Wendy and John were outstanding to work with. We loved our stay!
Justin and Crystal Thorstrom, Sandy, UT
Just a quick note to say we had a great time at the Eden Trapper's Ridge home. It's a great home in a great location. We hope to use your services again for future reunions. Wendy was great to work with! The house, especially the location was amazing. We would definitely recommend your homes to friends and family.
Kathy L., Ann Arbor, MI
We stayed at Gathering Place while in town for our daughter's wedding. It was great to have some room to spread out in. It was also wonderful to be able to have a full sized fridge for food. I would love to see more properties in the Taylorsville, West Jordan, South Jordan area. This property was a little far out for us. We were very satisfied that the home met our expectations as communicated in the property listing.
Sandra H., Gillette, WY
We stayed at Sugarhouse Square for a convention in Salt Lake City. This was a good place to stay for the price and ease of access. All the necessary stores and shopping are close by. The neighborhood is good too. We enjoyed being able to cook our own meals.
Cheryl K., Strongsville, OH
We stayed at Riviera Retreat for our ski trip. We had a good time skiing and there were some nice bedrooms for all of us.
Reed H., Twin Falls, ID
We rented your home for 2 families that came for LDS general conference. We stayed at Foothill Heights. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the living areas. The kitchen table was great for playing games and the children enjoyed the hot tub.
Charlie S., Jackson, WY
We were in town for the World Jr. Free Ride Championships at Snowbird. We stayed at Mountain Pointe. Convenience of purchase, guest instructions, price, quality of the home, and marketing materials were much better than other comparable lodging companies. We really liked the price for the quality of home. We were very satisfied and would definitely refer you to friends and family. We would probably rent this home again.
Ken P., Evanston, IL
We loved our ski vacation in Utah. We loved the quality and location. We were very satisfied with the kitchen supplies, comfortable living rooms furnishings, and the cleanliness was fantastic. Maintenance was terrific; I phoned in a roof leak and someone was there in 15 minutes. The reservations agent was very good and so was guest services. The home met our expectations as communicated on the marketing. Overall, we were very satisfied with the rental home and would definitely recommend your homes to friends and family.
Pam A., New Zealand
We stayed at The View at Bellavista. It's been a great stay. We will recommend to all our friends. So much better than a hotel. Thanks.
Brian G., Sterling, VA
Wendy (Guest Services), We stayed at Oquirrh Sunset. Everything was perfect.
Marsha and Family, Ferndale, WA
Dear Wendy (Guest Services), Thank you for the elegant gift basket. A big surprise! That was very thoughtful and kind -- and delicious! We feel spoiled. The card was sweet. Thank you!
Steve P., Hatfield, MA
We stayed at Trapper's Ridge in Eden, UT. We had a wedding at the mountain. It was a great house for our group.....comfortable accommodations for our group of 11, perfect location for us, as we spent w/e at Powder Mountain. The quality, convenience of purchase, and guest instructions were somewhat better than other rental companies.
Greg O., Friendswood, TX
We stayed at Sugarhouse Square. Our group had a great time and the location was ideal with access to both the Park city side and the Alta valley. The kitchen worked very well, only lacking a few items. We came for fellowship and to experience the incredible winter activities of the area.
Ellen F., Peterbourgh Canada
I wanted to let you know we enjoyed our stay at View At Bellavista. It is a lovely house and the view of the city is spectacular. I am writing to thank you for arranging the three rental vehicles with Enterprise for us last week. Everything went very smoothly and they worked out great, thank you very much for your assistance. This was our fifteenth year coming to Salt Lake City to Ski. Next year we may get in touch again when it comes to rental time to find out what other houses you have available for rent for a large group of adults. View at Bellavista was great, but in some ways it was not user friendly for ten 65+ year olds (three couples and four men whose wives did not come) It is probably more suitable for a family with children. For ten adults we needed another bathroom with a shower. There are two showers in View at Bellavista, the second is in the onsuite, but that meant going through the bedroom and disturbing the couple sleeping there. Wendy I want to thank you again for your excellent service, and all of your hard work on our behalf. We really did appreciate it, and we had a wonderful stay. Until next year. Best regards.
Dolores C., Las Cruces, NM
We stayed at the Princess Bellagio for a family reunion. This home is beautiful. For the 8 of us, all very comfortable. We are adults without children and so it was great for us. We never used the grotto, but it was very nice too. The supplies were sufficient. This was our first time to rent a home in place of a hotel. I have nothing to compare it to, but for our first experience it was good. As our first trip to Utah we didn't know that alcohol was not sold in the grocery store. We were close enough to the Salt Lake City airport as we were all coming in from different parts of the country at different times. Also, close to ski resorts we went to Brighton on Friday and it was close and easy to get there.
Kerry H., New York, NY
Enjoyed our stay at Oquirrh Sunset for our ski vacation. The property was well maintained and clean. We were very satisfied with the kitchen supplies and how many people could be accommodated for the price. Reservations and guest service agents were very good.
Valerie B., Oxnard, CA
Thank you so much for assisting my family on our trip to Salt Lake City - we all had a wonderful time. I wanted to let you know that the City Creek Villa was perfect. We filled that house up!! We had a wonderful time and appreciate you accommodating us on Sunday morning with our flight issues. We hope to make this an annual trip - hopefully next year will not be snowing (I live at the beach in CA!) - I hope you will consider renting to us again.
Carol S., Mt. Vernon, WA
We came for our ski vacation and stayed at Powder House near Snowbird Resort. What a great location!!! Overall, the place was great! Very well stocked and comfortable. Your staff was helpful and accommodating. Thank you for a nice vacation. It was nice to have a garage and mud room for ski gear. The place felt like home away from home.
Lori C., Bear, DE
We stayed at Riviera Retreat. We were very happy with the response we got with some issues regarding the theater room and hot tub. Wendy (guest services) was great! We all loved the layout of the kitchen/dining/living rooms. Everyone was able to find a spot and still be part of all things happening and conversations. Loved the game room and theater room. We had 2 movie nights!
Raymond L., Staten Island, NY
We stayed at Midtown Square for a snowboarding trip. The cleanliness and location was unbeatable. We were very central and able to get to any mountain we wanted to go without driving too far. The supermarket was 2 blocks away and was 24 hours! Overall, our experience with this rental property and with the staff was highly recommended and would definitely rent again in the future.
Andrew M., Washington D.C.
We stayed at the Citycreek Villa for a ski trip. The two aspects of the home we enjoyed the most were its cleanliness and the home's amenities. Very well stocked kitchen, was pleasantly surprised to find a Cuisinart and a slow cooker available. Overall a fantastic experience. I was very satisfied with the kitchen supplies. There were sufficient cooking equipment. I was also very satisfied with how comfortable the beds were and living room furnishings. We will definitely tell our friends and family about you and would love to stay here again.
Wendy, Thank you so much! You and Nelson have made this so easy and have been absolutely wonderful to me.
Joe O., St. Louis, MO
We were in town for business and stayed at Weber Canyon-side Retreat. It's a very nice vacation home. The spaces and furnishings were very good. We greatly enjoyed the pool and ping pong tables. There were excellent meeting spaces for our group. The reservations convenience of was much better than other lodging companies. We were most satisfied with the number of guests that could be accommodated and the home amenities. Overall, we were definitely satisfied and would recommend your homes to our friends, and would stay here again.
Fred D., Long Grove, IL
Dear Guest Services, You are a sweetheart! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! Hey, you may have a return customer for life now, my friend!
I wanted to write to let you know that everything with the rental condo turned out wonderfully. We had a blast skiing in Utah and plan to return next year. I'll be in touch for another rental.
Ashleigh, San Francisco, CA
Thank you so much for all your help this past weekend. We had an amazing time at Majesty Cove at Mount Olympus Mansion and I hope we get an opportunity to work with you again. Cheers!
Margarita G., Chandler, AZ
Dear Guest Services Manager, We did enjoy the house (Foothill Heights) very much and hope you found all in order. We will definitely be in touch with you again should the need arise and have given your company name to all of our family and friends. God bless.
We visited Utah for a ski trip, stayed in the Trolley Heights property. The staff were outstanding - very understanding and helpful. Also, the discounts offered on rental ski equipment and lift tickets were excellent and much appreciated. And the skiing was excellent.
Sverre C., South Londonderry, VT
Wow what a great vacation house (Midway Swiss Chalet) in Midway, UT. Our team really enjoyed it and it was a great location for our races at Soldier Hollow. If we bring a bigger group again next year we would be interested in this house again. Thanks for all your help and information. The movie theater was great and a nice bedroom as well. We came to Midway, Utah for the ski races.
Our family had a lot of fun at (Trapper's Ridge) in Eden, UT. Thank you!
Location worked perfectly for us at Mountain Pointe home in Sandy, UT. We came for a ski holiday and family reunion.
Loved the location and space this home (Riviera Retreat) offers! Was perfect for our group of 10! Especially liked the activities available indoors for the snowy Utah days.
Hot tub was very enjoyable and always warm at the Union Pines home. Thanks.
Katie T., Newport, KY
We loved staying at the home in West Jordan, Utah. It featured more than enough space for our group of four (and would be a great place for a larger family gathering). We were somewhat disappointed with the location, since we were in Utah to ski at the many resorts. We found ourselves driving an hour each way to the resorts every day. If you're looking to ski, I recommend finding something closer. If you're willing to make a longer drive, this is a great home with very comfortable beds and amenities. We loved it!
Byron B., Ormond Beach, FL
You are welcome, we had a blast at (Riviera Retreat).
Brenda O., Salt Lake City, UT
My husband and I rented the Gathering Place from you over the Christmas holidays. Generally it was a good experience. Overall, we had a great experience and created marvelous memories. And we appreciate all that you did.
Backman Family, Litchfield Park, AZ
The house (Foothill Heights) was perfect for us. I can't even imagine staying 5 days in a hotel with 5 kids, it's not fair to them. The couch in the living room was a great choice. Lots of space, lots of snuggle time, lots of football games. We especially went for a house so we could cook meals. These kids don't get real home cooked dinners so this is a treat for them to sit around the table, eat and talk. And that little game table in the living room. Every house should have one. We spent the time together doing a puzzle. Thanks for everything.
Tawna P., Britton, SD
Nelson we loved the house (Trappers Ridge) in Eden, UT and had a great time.
Susan B., Savannah, GA
Hi Wendy (Guest Services Manager), I just wanted to let you know how absolutely fabulous and perfect the house (Sugarhouse Square) we rented from you was during our stay in Salt Lake City. My family had a wonderful time and the house was perfectly laid out for visiting. I don't know if or when we will be coming back to your side of the country, but if we should, we will definitely use your business again. Thank you, also, for allowing us to coming in the house a bit early without the extra charge. Again, thank you for helping make beautiful family memories for our son's wedding in Salt Lake City.
Sami M., Gillette, WY
We wanted to drop you a line and tell you all thank you for the lovely home we stayed in this last weekend (Trapper's Ridge) in Eden, UT. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed our stay there.
Chris and Richelle M.
Thanks for an overall wonderful time at Mountain Pointe. We would gladly rent from you again.
Kathy C., Ballwin, MO
We loved the home (Majesty Cove). The home has wonderful areas for privacy and fun. The location is great minutes to the mountains, city, airport, etc. We loved the property and would do it again.
Jason N., West Jordan, UT
We had a blast, thank you so much! We will definitely be using you again and telling all our friends and family. Thanks! (Trappers Ridge) in Eden, UT near Snowbasin Resort.
Les A., Coeur d'Alene, ID
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in your beautiful Princess Bellagio home from Sunday, October 14 through Friday, October 19. It is a beautiful, well appointed home; we felt at home. "When we arrived Sunday evening, tired from two airplane flights, we settled in to watch one of the movies we had brought from home. You see, my wife was facing surgery on Monday morning and we knew we would be spending a lot of time in your home during her recuperation. We were disappointed that we couldn't get your DVD player to work, so we called John (maintenance man). I have to tell you that he is a wonderful part of your team. He went above and beyond the call of duty during our stay. He came over at 8 pm on Sunday evening to get at least the television working correctly. He then noticed that our DVDs were Blu-Ray and your player wouldn't be able to play our DVDs. The next day, he came over with a Blu-Ray received. John also helped with something else that slips my mind. "What I want you to know is that John was there to do whatever he could to make our stay as comfortable as possible, and to make your company look great. He was personable, efficient, and kind. You are indeed fortunate to employ John.
Ramona J., Lehi, UT
We stayed at City Creek Villa for a family reunion - families from Washington, Arizona & Utah. We were satisfied with the cleanliness. It was so nice having a large enough place to accommodate our whole group. We had a wonderful week! We loved having the code for entering the facilities - so much better than keys! We were really glad that you provided garbage pickup twice/week.
Daleena G., Pineville, OR
We stayed at Gathering Place. The house was the perfect size and is in a great location. The play area outside was awesome for our young kids. We had our family reunion here.
James and Linda S., Parkersburg, WV
We rented the Weber Canyon home in Ogden for our 50th anniversary family reunion celebration. The kids and adults enjoyed the billiard and ping pong tables. The home had lots of supplies. We loved the quality and amount of guests that could be accommodated.
I had a kidney transplant. my donor and I stayed there. It was relaxing and peaceful. I am so thankful for Utahs Best Vacation Rentals! Thank you! We had a great time! The cleaning lady did a fantastic job! The master bedroom was so comfortable. I wish I could have taken the bed home with me. I truly appreciated the quickness of answering our questions and our needs! Thank you!
Marilyn A., Summerfield, NC
This event was a family wedding with children and grandchildren involved. We loved the amount of space--that was the biggest factor--and being able to cook. We were able to bake birthday cupcakes (thank you for the cupcake tins, bowls, mixer and spatula!) and even had a pinata in the tree out front.
Larry H., Rexburg, ID
The home was clean and ready for our stay. We stayed for a family reunion. We had all the amenities that we expected. It was nice to be able to have a group of 13 all able to be in the same home and have room for all to eat, visit and play together. It was a very quiet neighborhood and we had a great time.
Scott A., Huntington Beach, CA
Everything was just as it should be and exactly as described. Everyone loved the duplex! It was much better than expected. It was much nicer than the pictures showed. We had a total of 19 people. Ample space, and very comfortable. We were in a ministry work close by for the week.
