comfortable condo, short shuttle ride to the village
Left on 02/11/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | Family of Four
Our family of 4 stayed here and we were very comfortable and overall satisfied with our choice. The condo has recently been upgraded, so the kitchen is quite nice, and the bathrooms are nice too. One of the two bathrooms is 3/4 bath with a standup shower - the room is very small, but it worked fine for our young kids. The kitchen was stocked with a random collection of pots, pans and cooking utensils. I had to hunt for kitchen towels and found them in the downstairs linen cabinet. None were in the kitchen. Other than salt and pepper, there were no other cooking staples that I normally find in rental properties. A new kitchen sponge would have been appreciated.
I asked the rental agent if there was a flat screen t.v. in the living room because the photo showed an older t.v. She indicated there was a flat screen t.v., but what she didn't say was that the same old t.v. was still in the l.r. There was a newer small flat screen in the loft, but it wasn't really practical to use it because there is no seating and the loft is not enclosed.
Also, the loft is small and narrow with a few futons...I don't expect adults would be comfortable sleeping there. Even though it's listed as sleeping 11, only 4 -5 can sleep in beds. Given the number and size of bathrooms, I think 4 people is the right number, 6 max.
There was a huge load of laundry in the dryer which I had to fold and put away in order to use the dryer. The lighting in the bedrooms is poor. Both bedrooms are small. The queen room has a very firm mattress and could use another nightstand. I found a bra and kids toy under the bed in one bedroom. The smaller bedroom was cold due to proximity to drafty front door and window.
We took the shuttle to the village daily, and the service was prompt and friendly. This was the aspect that I was most concerned about and it turned out to be a breeze. Also, there was a fun snow play area in front of our unit which our kids enjoyed.

this is a very comfortable condo with easy access to northstar village. we would stay here again. but the place could use a really thorough cleaning incl inside the cabinets...just too many cabinets or closets had the feel of stuff being tossed in them, or not stocked appropriately, etc. also the heat is uneven throughout the house (might be inevitable given the house design). overall tho it's a fairly decent northstar condo really close to the active areas.

This was a great place to stay in Northstar. The condo was much nicer than we expected. We were very happy with what we got for our money. I was concerned about having to take the shuttle to get to the lifts and the village. As it turned out the shuttle service was very fast and friendly. We had a great experience!
