We stayed three nights in a two bedroom suite. Perfect location, rooms were clean and comfortable. Touch less checkin checkout was very convenient. You can rent ski equipment next door and board the gondola across the road to go up the mountain. Everything you need for a ski trip is here.

Worse checking experience. Very complicated and change room at the last minute. Also, staff super unfriendly and rude. Do not keep track of assigned guess rooms. Worse experience ever

The apartment was clean and had all the appliances and amenities to make our stay very comfortable. Storage was a bit limited, especially for skis, boots and boards. Fairly close to the Heavenly Gondola, but still a pretty good walk in ski boots. Close to all the shops and restaurants in Heavenly village. Overall a Very nice place to stay for a ski holiday.
