We had a large group, 4 couples and 2 singles, and we have been doing an annual ski trip for many years. Our Vail trip will go down as one of, if not our favorite.
We arrived very late Wednesday night(Thurs morning) and just wanted to find the house and go to bed. The house was easily located (though I think the address numbers need replacing or updating) and the lockbox worked as advertised.
The home was spacious, easily fitting our large group, comfortable and cozy. The hot tub worked great as did the TV and fireplace.
The house is a short walk to the shuttle, and thus we didn't need to use the car the rest of the trip. The shuttle does take roughly 20 minutes or so to arrive at the village but it's a small price to pay for the affordability and space of East Vail.
We had 2 very minor issues, and a quick phone call to Steve fixed those right away. We treated the home as though it were our own and we hope to be back year after year.
