Stayed at this incredible place for 4 days with my 74 year old parents, my wife, sister and brother-in-law and their 2 kids, ages 11 and 9. The kids were asleep when they came in at night, but it was worth it just to see the looks on their faces in the morning when the sun came up and they looked out the window...precious! In fact, we all carried the same look on our faces as we walked from room to room enjoying the design, the layout, the construction which all works together to help you derive maximum enjoyment of the surroundings. On a private road with lots of houses - once you pass through the gates at the falls you are isolated from the rest of the world as the rain forest engulfs you. It's so loud at night! The waterfall sounds like rainstorm and the birds at night...! It turns out there are no birds at night! Those are frogs pretending to be birds! My wife needs silence to sleep at night, but she slept like a baby here. These are the sounds that we are meant to hear as we sleep. Jack and Jane - thank you so much for sharing your private paradise with us! If I owned such a house I would have a hard time renting it out to strangers....so thank you for this wonderful gift!
We, too, have stayed in many different units in NCV, and liked this one the most. No obstructed views of the crashing waves. We could sit perched in directors chairs on the private balcony above everyone and everything -- drinking a cuppa while reading the daily delivered newspaper !! Yes, we ventured down to the beach on occasion with all the unit's greatly appreciated boogie boards/towels/chairs -- but this mom mainly took up residence on that balcony. We cooked in the well-supplied kitchen, and ate at the big dining table. After a fun beach day, we watched DVDs on that wonderful 3D TV/player. We absolutely will return.
Wanted to express our great appreciation for the wonderful accommodations provided by Tall Spruce House during our stay December 31, 2012 - January 5, 2013. All 22 members of our immediate family - arriving from four different states - descended on a Monday and stayed through Saturday. Our large group of children had a ball sledding down the gentle slope in the snow-covered front yard. Cousins got to know one another, our children caught up on all the latest news, and we all shared fun times in this large, spacious house! It is clean and neat. We had all the necessities available to us in the various bedrooms and bathrooms. As family members took turns preparing meals for our large group, we found that we were well supplied with dishes, pots and pans, spices, appliances - everything we needed was at our fingertips.
Lisa is conscientious in providing for her guests. She has suggested interesting things to do in Durango. She met us as we arrived, told us to call her if we needed anything, and even left us some cookies and a tin of gourmet nuts along with a few instructions on the kitchen table. We would highly recommend the Tall Spruce House as a very special place for you and your family to spend quality time.
