Aloha Bear
- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 5 in Brian Head, UT

Availability and Booking

Description ↑↓

Aloha Bear is a beautifully made condo in a very exclusive property with many upgrades, only 2 minutes from the lifts. You enter the main floor of the condo from your private 2 car garage on the same level as the main floor. No hauling ski equipment, luggage or groceries up & down common stairs or in the snow. Downstairs is a second bedroom and bath, great for the kids or another couple. Standard occupancy is 4.

We went out of way to make our little retreat comfortable. It is called Aloha Bear for Hawaiian hospitality and bears which personify strength and go with the flow of the seasons. We have a full kitchen with many amenities including an espresso maker & Hawaiian coffee. Aloha Bear also has a rice cooker & chop sticks for our fellow rice eaters.

The extras: The bedrooms have great beds and linens to make your sleeping a pleasure. The living room has 3 recliners, a gas fire place and a 50 inch LCD HD TV and cool unique handmade furniture so you can relax after a fun day on the slopes in the winter or day trips to the monuments & festivals in the summer. The master bedroom has a beautiful Southwest king size bedroom set with a CD IPod docking station and a jetted tub in the bathroom. The downstairs bedroom has a full and twin bunk bed with a 32 inch LCD HD TV and its own full bathroom. Full sized front loading washer and dryer add to your convenience.

Lots of plates, glasses, wine glasses, & cooking utensils including a good selection of pots and pans, baking pans for muffins, cakes etc. Water and ice through the door.

Skiing & sight seeing: Coming from Hawaii, we love being tourists on the mainland. We like the Southwest history, native people culture and fabulous geology. Though we have enjoyed skiing many places, we fell for Brian Head because the snow was great whenever we went there (including the marginal times), skiing was great for families; lots of choices for those who don't ski all that often as well some challenging stuff for those adventurous types, a mellow vibe, friendly people, the boarders respectful, the lift tickets are affordable and to top it off it is in Utah's 'color country' and only 3 hours from Las Vegas.

What we didn't realize was how great it was in the summer. Cedar Breaks Monument is only about 5 minutes away by car in summer. It is a spectacular photographers dream with ranger lead snow shoe walks along the rim in June (snow dependent). Other monuments within day trip range are Zion, Kolob Canyons, & Parowan Gap. The Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City is a real treat in an intimate outdoor theater.

Summer sports: Cedar City is becoming known for its cultural appreciation of the performing arts in theater and music with lots of fun festivals. On the Solstice, the Parowan Gap, only a half hour away, celebrates one of the only known natural solstice and celestial landmarks, long recognized by native peoples traveling though this area who left hundreds of fantastic petroglyphs. Brian Head becomes a mountain bike, hike, & ATV destination in the summer with really nice lakes for fishing close by.

A stay at Aloha Bear, is a bit of an upgrade from the usual ski condos. You will feel pampered and relaxed. The kids can have their own space downstairs or you can enjoy quality family time all together in the comfy living room. In the winter, it is so easy to get from the living room to the lifts and back again. In the summer, it is such a cool comfortable retreat from sight seeing in the desert or surrounding mountains. We have cable and private WiFi, no phone though. Note: This is not a condo to cram a bunch of people into. The price includes up to 4 people. (Listed rate is for the standard occupancy of 4, but home can accommodate up to 5. Extra guest fee beyond four is $20/night + tax per person. This fee is collected after booking. There is a limit of only 1 extra guest.)

We have been to Brian Head several years and always explored different types accommodating hotels, resorts et., this time we struck gold! This place was awesome! The ONLY hiccup was the last night when someone was up stairs settling in we’ll past midnight. They were quite finally around 1 AM. The other two days were very peaceful and was able to relax. Wonderful condo and would go back again! 03/02/2013 at 6:02 AM

This condo lived up to its description in every way. The great room (kitchen, dining area, & living area all together) was wonderful, and the beds and bathrooms were great as well. I would highly recommend this condo to anybody who was looking for a place to stay with five or less people. We had five people and absolutely loved it! 01/02/2013 at 4:04 PM

We’re surfers and have been all over the world staying at surf resorts and chasing that magical spot. I’ve fantasized for years about finding a spot where our whole family can have fun in the ocean together. Somewhere the kids feel comfortable playing enjoying the waves and where my husband and I can surf. We staying in the summer when Hanalei is small and it was magical! It’s the PERFECT spot for a family surf holiday. All 3 kids caught their first waves by themselves! Views are breathtaking, beach is huge and uncrowded.
great rental

Aloha Bear is exactly as described on the site. Was perfect for our family get away. Brian Head has gone down in quality of resort a lot since their recent merger. Sad it is not the same place it once use to be. Overrun with super long lift line, sometimes over an hour with minimal runs open or efforts to open them.

I heard it was super busy this season. Sadly, we didn't get over there from Hawaii this year. Glad our other guests had great times on the slopes.

We usually go to Canada for the holidays, but with Covid we had to find something closer. We are so happy we stayed at the Aloha Bear property. It was cozy, neat, and just what we were hoping for. Our kids loved it so much and thought it was just like our normal ski cabin. The ski hills are a very short 3min drive away, as well the sledding and skating areas. We loved the fireplace, the kids loved their own room with bunk beds downstairs, and the portable heater kept them warm. The skiing was great for us and the kids loved all the other snow activities. We had 6” of great powder during our stay. The only negatives (which were very minor) were that the kitchen counter could have been a bit cleaner. There was a bit of crumbs and crud on the one side and an old sponge in the sink. The kitchen is well stocked for all cooking needs except for no mixing bowels. We cook a ton with the kiddos, so mattered to us but may not matter at all to someone else. There is a small handheld vacuum but we couldn’t get it to work. The other vacuum cleaner worked well. None of the above issues affected our vacation at all, just noting them for others. We would 100% rent this place again for our family vacation. LOVED IT.

I'll forward this on to my cleaner who I am sure will be totally chagrined as am I. We aim for beautifully clean as well as great vibe and comfortable.
Great family stay in Brian Head

The Aloha Bear condo was just as described and the perfect space for our family of 4. It was conveniently located between the Navajo lifts where we dropped the kids off for lessons each morning and the Giant Steps lifts where we often picked up family members in the afternoon. The dishwasher was broken during our stay, but the property owner reached out ahead of time to warn us, so it was nice at least to have a heads-up so we could be prepared for that. Overall, it was a really great stay in the mountains for us. Thank you.
