We had an awesome time and Billy's place is location was perfect for us!!! Thanks to prompt and detailed descriptions of everything that we needed to know to be comfortable in the Valley View unit...it was a wonderful place situated just far away enough from the busy commercial area of Vail but close enough you can hop a free shuttle! We were very comfortable here and look forward to a return visit!!! The new windows solved the upstairs ventiliation concern and with the bathroon window open and the fans on low, it cooled down perfectly!
Previously a winter visitor, future quests may be interested in what to do in the summer to get a taste of the area. I would recommend hiking the Cherry Picker trail and taking the Gondola down, driving/hiking at Piney Lake Ranch (if you have an SUV); this is a less populated Alpine hiking experience and comparable to Maroon Bells! Drive to Glenwood Spings for a rafting adventure with Whitewater Rafting, and rent bikes in town to really get the lay of the land! Is you have kids the Betty Ford Amphitheater and park was a favorite for my grandson. There's much more...and on the down-low within walking distance the park and creek was a haven to relax around or just chill on the deck. Oh...there's a great breakfast at the local Westside Cafe (next to McD and Safeway)!
Regards and thanks for sharing you slice of paradise!
