The condo was very nice. Beds were comfortable, kitchen fully stocked with everything needed, nice decor. Initially it was difficult to find as it is called Latern condominiums however, when youre driving trying to find it the sign says The Tradition. This should be more clearly specified in listing. The area was very peaceful and quiet. Nice pool and tennis courts. They even supplies tennis raquets in the closet of the condo. It was a great value for the price. Something that might be helpful is a detailed list of the check out process. We stripped the bed and washed the sheets and towels we used but there were no clear instructions of what was expected. I would stay here again.
The condo was prefect for a weekend getaway and great with kids as only a few steps to the volleyball court and the pool.
Rachel was so easy to work with - she replied to emails within minutes and was very helpful. Thank you!
My husband and I, together with another couple who are our good friends, shared the apartment for a week. We liked having 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, with each bedroom having a king bed. The apartment is very tastefully decorated, and the living room, dining area and kitchen were perfect for our shared times.
The complex is very well located. We enjoyed walking to several nice restaurants. We also liked being able to walk to the grocery store and the drug store.
A few questions and issues arose during our stay, and Rachel was very responsive by email. Since she was out of town, she asked her brother to come by to help us, and he is a very nice young man.
This condo is located in a well managed, elegant development. Our family had a great time here during the Christmas season in 2012. The interior decoration of the unit was very impressive. Rachel prepared a cute Christmas tree for my kids. When we needed an anti-slippery mat for the bathtub, Rachel went to buy it for us immediately. I would highly recommend this condo and the management by Rachel and her family.
Unfortuneatley our 2 week stay at the Kierland condo was unsatisfactory. Rachel was very kind, but the place wasn't prepared properly for our stay. Basic essentials, such as: more than 1 extra toilet paper roll, hand soap, salt+pepper, cooking oil, a cutting board and BBQ utensils were missing. We were told that guests in the past surprisingly at times take these things, so now she leaves a vase of flowers (which wasn't provided either). When we arrived late at night the King size mattress was set up on the floor, no box spring or frame. This was fixed in good time, but had a very uncomfortable first night's sleep. The host was aware that an extra guest would be coming and using the pull out bed. There was no mattress that was provided, so again, we needed a last minute delivery. The host was not aware that the outside of the condo was to be painted during our stay, but her solution was for us to bring in the patio furniture (into the already small living space with a toddler) for a series of day while the condo was being painted. All of these little conveniences added up; we were even told we could park in a stall that a neighbor confronted us saying it was designated to her suite. Rachel did not provide us with a reliable phone number we could contact her; when we tried to call it was disconnected because she was using a tempory number. She was quick to replay to emails though, and accommodated our request for a late check out which was kind. The place was clean and the pool was very nice.
