Well, it’s that time of the year again! The ten days in January when the film industry’s elite share the stage with camcorder producers; when year-round ski bums sit side-by-side on the chairlift with wealthy out-of-towners experiencing fresh ‘pow’ for the first time; when movie theater popcorn and 48 ounce sodas are substituted for caviar and Dom Perignon – yup, it’s Sundance Film Festival time! Some 50,000 folks will flock to Utah to attend the Sundance Film Festival, with many of them spending the week in mountainside vacation rentals. So, we thought it would be fun exercise to award some of our rentals with a couple of the Sundance trophies. Without further ado, the votes are in, and the following properties are the victors of the first ever VacationHomeRentals.com Sundance Vacation Rental Awards!
The Audience Award:
This one was a runaway! We’re pleased to announce that this year’s Audience Award goes to This Custom Chalet. The vacationers have spoken, and with 35 glowing reviews, Ron G.’s vacation rental was the clear choice. This 3000 square foot, 5 bedroom, 3 bath cabin was custom built and is fully equipped with everything a family visiting Park City could ask for. Complete with a hot tub, game room and huge wrap-around deck, this vacation rental is perfect for large groups heading to Sundance. It’s pretty easy to see why Ron G.’s Custom Chalet is this year’s winner of the prestigious VacationHomeRentals.com ‘Audience Award’. Congratulations, Ron!
The Best of NEXT Award:
The Best of Next Award is presented to the rising star in the Park City Rental Class of 2013. This year’s winner is sure to be the accommodation of choice for many successful vacations in the coming years. Complete with 3 bedrooms and 5 baths, this Beautiful Luxury Home with a hot tub is perfect for a family looking to enjoy all that Park City has to offer. Aleisha V. has done a wonderful job with this vacation rental; two of the most important components of a ‘can’t miss’ rental are a quality kitchen and a high ‘sleeps’ number. Take a peek at the kitchen – it’s incredible! And, with the ‘sleeps’ number at 12, this rental checks both boxes. I would love to crash in this Rising Star of a vacation rental for a weekend.
The Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award:
Of course, we had to take a bit of a unique approach on this one. We’re not in the business of screenwriting, but we are in the business of advertising vacation rentals and each advertisement includes a ‘Description of the Vacation Rental’. So, perhaps it would be more appropriate to title this award the ‘Waldo Salt Vacation Rental Description Writing Award’, but I’m not sure Mr. Salt would be cool with such an amendment so we’ll ride with the original title. Anyway, this year’s award goes to Craig P., whose Amazing A Frame. Craig did a great job illustrating his rental as warm and comfortable accommodation for folks of all kinds.
Excellence in Cinematography:
We’re awarding the Excellence in Vacation Rental Cinematography to the Park City rental with the best photos of their rental. This year’s winner is Kenny N. and his beautiful 5 bedroom Deer Valley Home. The images Kenny uses really do a wonderful job of inviting the renter in for a sneak peek. Congratulations to all the winners.
For those properties that we’re recognized this year, there are 365 days until next year’s VacationHomeRentals.com Sundance Vacation Rental Awards!
