Second-Floor Condo with Free WiFi, Gas Fireplace, Desk, Shared Pool, & Hot Tub

When rustic charm, convenience, incredible amenities, and a prime location meet, you'll have this cozy, second-floor condo plus loft! This mountain retreat is ideal for a family escapade, a romantic getaway with your significant other, a thrilling trip with a friend, or even a solo vacation. In the summer, soak up the verdant vistas from the balcony with a cold drink in hand; in the winter, curl up by the fireplace and watch the snow fall on the mountains outside. No matter what time of year, this laid-back retreat is the perfect spot to unwind after busy days exploring Sun Valley!

The Bluff - Royals will welcome you with a rustic charm that will surely help you forget about any stressful situation you had before. The main living area is open and warm, with brightly colored rugs on the floor and colorful artwork adorning the wood-paneled walls. There is comfortable seating around the gas fireplace and a streaming-capable flatscreen TV with a DVD player for inviting movie nights. There are a handful of board games provided, such as good ol' Pictionary for game nights. The living area opens to the kitchen and dining nook, just waiting for you to sit and enjoy a hearty breakfast before a day on the slopes or hiking trails.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances and gadgetry you might require, including microwave, toaster, blender, coffee grinder, and the all-important dishwasher for easy clean-up. The space is warm and lovely to cook in as well, with gleaming copper countertops and stools lining the island so the chef will never be lonely! The dining nook offers a three-person dining table, but if you'd like more dining space, the breakfast bar has three stools available. Adjoining the dining area is an office nook with a well-equipped desk.

There is one bedroom on the main floor, with sunny yellow walls and a comfortable queen bed. This bedroom has a flatscreen TV with a DVD player of its own, and there is a spacious full bath with dual sinks and a separate enclosed area with a toilet and tub/shower combo. The upper loft is open yet cozy, with exposed wood beams on the sloping ceilings and rich red quilts on the beds. A full bed is tucked around the corner, and one twin bed has thoughtfully been placed to create a lovely reading nook or nap space for relaxing afternoons. A second bath with a walk-in shower is upstairs, so morning routines will be a breeze. This getaway is perfect for three but can accommodate four guests.


In the summertime, you can enjoy complimentary access to all the wonderful amenities of Elkhorn Resort. Swimming pools and hot tubs are just steps away, and the view from the nearest pool is one of the best in Elkhorn! There are also tennis courts, a playground, and a sauna/steam room. To add more convenience to your stay, the hot tub and pool are almost right outside the door! Book a tee time at the nearby Elkhorn Golf Course (just over one mile) if you're a golfer, or head out to downtown Ketchum for dining and shopping. The heart of town is three and a half miles from your door, which is a pleasant morning walk in the summer or an easy bus ride on the free shuttle that whisks you right to the cafes and galleries!

My family has enjoyed staying here several times - and love how comfortable the unit is. The loft/nest up above sleeps two persons and has its own small but adequate bath. The main bedroom and bath are comfortable, and the well equipped kitchen is great. Plus the living room is very comfortable too. We always enjoy our stays here. It’s great. We thank the owner for keeping this unit available!
JEREMY N. Jan 2022
Well equipped but as other reviews have stated why do they need so many chairs? It makes the unit feel cramped and cluttered. Also the beds were extremely uncomfortable. Having a single flat pillow with no extras made our nights tossing and turning on a hard mattress very uncomfortable. Additionally the Bluffs are not near the Mountain transportation which was very disappointing as well. Should have done my research here but there are many other places in Sun Valley to stay at which we would do next time.

Clean and comfortable

Really well equipped condo with very cozy feel.
Joseph S. Feb 2019
Everything was neat and tidy. Quiet, too.
Flachbart M. Aug 2018
The condo is really comfy. Great location and we loved the pool. The kitchen is well equipped. We would definitely stay there again.
Lucy P. Aug 2018
Loved the kitchen and master bath. Plus the location, the swimming pool and the views. The beds were comfortable. But the living room and master bedroom were cramped with way too many - we counted 18 side chairs and/or stools. And the unit smelled strongly of cheap air freshener.

Manager response:
We have asked our housekeeper to not use air freshener. Thank you!
Chris C. Apr 2018
We enjoyed our stay at this very well equipped property in the Bluff’s! It was nice and clean, well appointed and represented just as the VRBO advertised. Thank you for a nice stay and we look forward to using it again in the future!

We stayed in the Bluffs Condo with our 10 year old son for 4 nights and found it very comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked. The hot tub is almost right out side the door which was nice after a long day of skiing. We also made use of the community hot tub a few nights too. It is a short drive to the ski area (we chose to drive instead of taking the shuttle) and town. The fireplace kept the condo warm and cozy all evening long. We highly recommend this condo as a great place to stay in Sun Valley.
Barbara K. Oct 2017
We enjoyed our two nights. The kitchen was better equipped than other places we have stayed. My husband especially appreciated the pots and pans available!
Trina P. Jul 2017
I booked this condo for a few colleagues who work for my husband's company. Here's their feedback:

We really enjoyed the condo. Here are some things I would leave in the review:

Check in and check out instructions were easy to follow. Everything we needed was on site
Loved the decorations in the condo, truly felt like a mountain getaway
Very close to town and the Sun Valley resort. Never more than a 5-7 minute drive from anything
Very clean with updated appliances
Trisha J. Jun 2017

Arian F. Feb 2017

Nice cozy place to relax after a great day in the snow!
Darin N. Sep 2016
Everything was perfect!
Shauna A. Aug 2016
We have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals over the years. This was my favorite. It is comfortable and well organized. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. Often when we have rented a home, there's only one pan, or there are five pans of the same type and size. The pool is a few steps from the front door, and it has an incredible view. There are miles of bike paths. I can't recommend this property more highly. We would love to return.
Amy W. Mar 2016
Enjoyed our stay, condo was great! Kitchen was super well stocked and the hot tub was close to the condo. Wonderful stay for us.
Bernadette M. Mar 2016
Great place, kitchen is well stocked, view from hot tub is fantastic
Ted D. Feb 2016
This is our second time staying in this condo during our annual ski trip to Sun Valley and it again was wonderful! All the amenities you could ever ask for are available in this unit. We enjoyed the hot tub under the stars each night to rest our ski legs and the gas fireplace kept everything warm and cozy during our stay! Thanks again for helping make our trip a success!
James F. Feb 2016
would stay here again.
John M. Feb 2016
Cute ,nice, worked well for us except there is too much furniture in the living space.
We had to move things around so we could see the tv and be able to get comfortable.
Leslie B. Dec 2015
Great company to work with. Property was very clean ,comfortable, well equipped, and I enjoyed having such a nice experience for my family.
Matthew J. Sep 2015
Very clean, up to date, comfortable,
everything needed is there. Just like home. We'd stay here again In a heart beat.
Barbara W. Sep 2015
The nearby pool has amazing mountain views. Bicycle paths are everywhere. It's so very close to shopping and entertainment in Sun Valley and Ketchum. And despite all of the excellent amenities and nearby attractions it still manages to feel like a quiet mountain getaway. The kitchen is fabulous and has everything you need to stay in for dinner.
Rick . Jul 2015
The unit is clean, nicely furnished and well appointed, however the description of the view is deceptive. It states that "Perched on the bluff overlooking Elkhorn Village, this cozy Sun Valley vacation condo offers wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and valley below. " The condo offers only views of the parking lot and the trees in it. No mountain or valley views. We have stayed in other units at the Bluffs which do have those views, so we were very disappointed to be looking at a parking lot for 4 days. The balcony above the parking lot was very small , dirty and had two small, uncomfortable chairs - not a place to relax with a drink in hand. The pool is very nice and it does have expansive views.
Maria A. Jun 2015
This place was great for the four of us. It is right by the pool/sauna/laundry facilities and is so close to tennis courts, golf courses, downtown Ketchum, hiking, etc. The place is very clean and well stocked. We played some of the games in the condo and had a blast! The loft held three of us just fine. In fact, it was a little like summer camp for us! I'd definitely stay here again!
Orla K. Apr 2015
The most comfortable, well equipped condo we have stayed in. It could easily handle 2 couples and a couple of kids with the benefit of the loft and extra bath upstairs. Close to the pool and a stunning view of the Boulders. We will return!
Ted D. Feb 2015
Condo was top notch and had everything you could possibly have wanted. Jacuzzi under the stars after skiing was wonderful. Gas fireplace made everything very cozy and comfortable. Absolutely recommend to anyone thinking of visiting Sun Valley in Winter or the warmer months!!! Thank you for a fantastic experience! We will be back again!
Manager response:
Thank you for this great review and wonderful recommendation! We hope to see you again soon!
Richard H. Dec 2014
This is a wonderful condo. Enjoyed sitting in living room next to fireplace, watching snow descend. Had more useful items in kitchen than our own home. Loved the VCR. Next time will bring Mr. Bill and Wallace and Grommit tapes. Access up the stairs is okay, but might be a concern for some.
Leslie B. Dec 2014
The family really enjoyed this location and had a great experience. The condo was very nice and a good value for our vacation.
Tracy R. Jan 2014
Perfect size. Close to town , but far enough away to have quiet. House was veryl clean and I am super particular about cleanliness. The kitchen was well stocked and made having some meals there easy. We were very cozy and comfortable with the gas fireplace. We can't wait to go back again!!
Carrie L M. Dec 2013
Me and my family really enjoyed our stay in the "Bluff Condo#26". It was not only clean and conviently located but it really felt like a home away from home. We definitely plan on returning and again staying in this condo. Thank you again!!
Deane S. Sep 2013
We like to cook and found that this unit had everything we needed to prepare all the foods we like to eat.
