This perfect location has it all! Ski to within 113 steps of your door, use the free private shuttle to get around town, enjoy the heated outdoor pool, relax in one of the 2 outdoor hot tubs, enjoy the warmth of the large new co-ed sauna, get a work out in the fitness center, take advantage of the one of the clubhouse lounges or game areas, shoot a game of pool, or utilize the business center. In the unit and throughout the location, you can cruise the internet via a secure ultra high speed wireless -our location has 50 megs/second to each unit! Its very fast internet and very capable of streaming video. In the condo, you'll be very comfy relaxing on the leather furniture set, especially with a warm fire surrounded by natural rock. The 47 Inch, Sharp Aquos Smart HDTV (more on this later) with DVR, Blu Ray with WiFi and Surround Sound Theater System is ideal for movies, sports, or watching your video from a day on the mountain. It has a smartphone/ipod earphone cable connection, so it is also great for playing your favorite music! After a long day out exploring our area or our slopes, the full kitchen, bar, & dining area is a great place to prepare a meal. Stainless Steel Appliances are featured, but the cabinets also hide a full assortment of dishes & glassware, as well as a nice selection of essentials like sugar, spices, oils, teas, and other basics. At the end of the day, you'll lay down in high quality linens & comforters selected for warmth & comfort - you'll be asleep in no time and wake up refreshed!
I have converted the HEATED garage into a Game Room. It has a 3 in 1 Pool / Air Hockey / Ping Pong table. There is also a Phoose Ball Table, a Dart board a 35 Inch wall mounted TV with cable, as well as sleds, river tubes, pool floats and a ski tuning table. This is a great bonus space for all to enjoy as well as a convenient heated space for storing your skis & boards.
When I lived in the property for a year, I loved how accessible the condominium is to skiing in the winter. I would laugh as I walked to the Gondola in about 2 minutes, while others in the complex waited for the free shuttle pick them up at their front door. The whole mountain village is within easy and fun walking distance. There is even a great Southwestern Restaurant called La Montana and a small grocery/liquor & wine store called The Wild Plum right next door to The Phoenix condos.
Of course, with small kids, the shuttle to the Gondola is a convenient amenity. Leave your car at home! The private shuttle in winter (as well as the city shuttle year round) will get you anywhere in town quickly and for free.
At the end of the ski day, or for lunch, you can ski to within 113 steps of the back door or garage. That's steps, not yards. Really! I counted many times and this was the average! Getting home is very convenient and easy! I still park at The Phoenix when I hit the slopes myself, one of the perks of ownership...
In the summer, the condominium stays pretty cool on its own, but as of 2011 the cool temperature is guaranteed by my brand new Air Conditioning units & new windows. There is a great flat area right out back with trees, grass, and a picnic table. I have a Gas and a Charcoal grill, so plan to BBQ. The hiking and mountain biking trails on the lower mountain are easy to access, and with the new heated Promenade wrapping around the base, you can easily walk, year round, to all of the shopping & dining options in the Mountain Village / Base Area!
I have tried hard to maintain the property at a high quality level, and constantly improve the property:
Fall 2014 - New HDTVs for the Bedrooms, New Towels, Upgraded Gas Grill
Fall 2013 - Added a Phoose Ball Table to the Game Room and new comforters to the bunk room.
Spring 2013 - Extensive Remodel: New Mattresses throughout! Granite slab counters in kitchen, including the back-splash & a waterfall panel to cap the peninsula, a new undermounted stainless steel sink & Moen faucet, new maple kitchen cabinets & drawers with soft close technology, new floors throughout the living room, dining room, kitchen & hallways, a new front loading washer & dryer, new paint, updated electrical switches, plugs, phone & ethernet outlets. We even built custom baseboard heaters that match the cabinets!
Fall 2012 - New Comforters, pillows, & linens for bedroom # 2. New full size ping pong table top for the game room.
Fall 2011 - Blu Ray with WiFi for streaming movies & video from the internet and a DVR for recording games, shows, & movies while you're out enjoying Steamboat.
Summer 2011 - 47' Internet Connected Sharp Aquos 1080p HDTV with matching HD Signal & Digital Channel lineup including HBO. Also, a Complete Exterior Building Renovation, including Air Conditioning, New Windows & Doors, Siding & Stairwells.
Summer 2011 - $4 Million Exterior Renovation at The Phoenix. The place is looking sharp! During the renovation, I added Air Conditioning to the unit.
Fall 2010 - New Bedding & Linens for both Bedrooms.
December 2009 - Garage converted into a Game Room. It is heated, carpeted, with a Pool/Air Hockey/Ping Pong Table, Darts, Ski Tuning Table, Cable TV, even Sleds for winter guests, River Tubes for Summer guests, a Christmas tree for holiday guests, and pool floats too.
Fall 2009 - Kitchen Bar Lighting replaced, and a dimmer switch was added. I also have new high end linens for the master bedroom.
Fall 2008 - New Leather Living Room furniture set.
Spring 2008 - The bathrooms were re-done with new larger mirrors, brushed nickel fixtures & lighting.
Fall 2007 - New Kitchen appliances, new carpet & slate tile, new tile in bathrooms. I also replaced all bedding, sheets, & towels with higher quality items than the average condo.
Renting from a management company is no fun. They can't & won't guarantee a particular unit, much less the quality of the unit, or the bedding setup. I'll match or beat their rates in most cases - giving you the BEST for LESS.

Have friends or family that need a place near yours, but want some privacy? I work with four different 4-Bedroom owners & five other 2-Bedroom owners at The Phoenix to keep large groups close together. One 4-Bedroom is right upstairs from my place, and another is just 20 feet away! I also work with many owners that have 2 to 5 bedroom properties within 100 yards of The Phoenix.
Please call me if you have any questions, or if you have interest in renting my place!!
We live here in Steamboat Springs and own a company called Steamboat Rentals By Owner. We provide marketing services for owners who rent directly to guests. I take pride in having a nice vacation home of my own for others to enjoy as well as helping other owners rent directly to guests. I enjoy living in Steamboat, taking advantage of all of the recreational opportunities that our beautiful area has to offer, and I'm around if you need anything!
Grey - 3208 purchased this condo in 2006
I chose to buy at The Phoenix because of the value. In both real estate & rental value, it is NOT as expensive as the ski in ski out properties, yet it is extremely convenient to the slopes, and has great amenities to enjoy.
The best things about this place is the location. It is just so convenient to the slopes! Unique Benefits? There is no other 2-Bedroom anywhere in Steamboat Springs with its own private game room! The Air Conditioning is also not common! The bed setup is also unique, with a Queen, a second Queen, and 3 Twins. Other great benefits include the strong wireless internet, a huge fireplace, comfy, upscale furniture, and the heated pool, hot tubs, & sauna are great after a long day on the slopes!
The advertisement and photos do not accurately represent this condo. There were 5 of us and based on the on-line listing we believed this unit would suit our needs. We've used VRBO and worked with Grey on previous visits for other SBS properties and have not had any problems. Naturally, I expected this condo would be satisfactory, particularly since Grey is the owner.
What was Wrong:
The unit is 'near' the Gondola, but not 113 steps; if you are staying at the Phoenix in a unit near the main office then 113 steps is accurate. This unit is well over 113 steps & uphill. Not a problem, but falsely advertised. When we opened the garage door, we were 'VERY' disappointed to see the junk room vs. game room depicted in photos. The ping pong table was broken & left on top of the air hockey table, & there was trash & junk on the floor. We were looking forward to using this room, but couldn't. The plumbing is broken & toilets got stopped up every day several times no matter what we did. Perhaps this is why there were plungers in the bathroom. I called on the first night and never got a response until the 2nd night. Someone supposedly came into the condo (no note), but the plumbing was not fixed so we had to deal w/ it for 7 days -unacceptable. The bathtub in 2nd bthrm filled up w/ water while showering after 5 mins above the ankles & took over 2 hours to drain! The 2nd bedroom is for 2 people max. The top bunk can't be slept on b/c its less than 6" from the ceiling & very dangerous. There is no room to set-up the rollaway beds located in closet, so don't be fooled by the pictures. If you leave beds in closet (we had to) then closet is unusable. The binder has TV instructions that are incorrect & although we eventually figured it out, the book was NO HELP! So much poor advertising.. We noticed pages had been torn out of the guest book - we now know why. We've been coming to SBS for over 8 years and this was by far the most disappointing stay. Although I've promoted Grey & his service to many friends, I was taken aback by his lack of concern. He answered one email and ignored the rest of my emails and calls, which is why I felt compelled write this review. His brother listed as the contact person - never responded. His father was frustrated and rude on the phone; I guess we disturbed him... Thankfully the skiing was great as always...
Great location, easy walk to the Gondola.
Unit is well furnished and good size for spreading out. Good pool and hot tub and club house close by.
Grey was responsive and easy to work with. I will come back!
This unit is not particularly fancy, but it is well-located and comfortable. We found Grey to be extremely helpful-- he went out of his way to obtain a refund for some ski tix we were not able to use because my daughter missed her connecting flight.
The gym is acceptable, as is the hot tub and pool. Again, nothing fancy, but good value for the price and a location that cannot be beat.
The pictures does not accurately display this condo. There was old socks in the living room, old food in the refrigerator, dead bugs under the master bedroom bed.
The 2nd bedroom can squeeze more beds to accommodate your needs however be careful if sleeping on the top bunk bed, you will hit your head every time. The closet is used for storage of a rollaway bed leaving only dressers for your belongings. Definitely not enough storage space.
The dryer never dried the clothes. Forget trying to dry towels... we would dry 1 towel and after 3 hours the towel was very damp. We have to fan dry everything, which makes the clothes stiff and hard.
The condo has 2 window units that did not cool the condo. During the day it gets very hot. At night it cools down enough to rest but you'll definitely need to use the fan.
The owner responded to my call and email 2 days after I initially tried to contact him. Everything I talked to him about had another excuse as to why things were the way they were. He did try to get someone out there to look at the dryer and my understanding was the part was not available.
The game room has a useless broken shelf. Trash can was full and trash on the floor. This room was very unorganized and dirty. Our teenagers never stepped foot in the game room. Which was one of the main reasons we got this place.
I definitely overpaid for this condo and did not get the full benefit for what I paid. When asked for some sort of discount for the inconvenience he did not respond or reply.
Grey was great to work with and made out stay wonderful! All the little touches made this a great choice. The condo was so close to the village and gondola to the mountain top. Our son loved the cool "log" bed although the top bunk was too close to the ceiling to sleep in. We made a couple of small repairs, we're handy like that, that made some things a bit easier. We would recommend this condo to a family, couple or friends. There were additional beds available for set up, but we didn't need them.
Because it was summer, there was so much to do in the Steamboat area. The pool, wifi, and game room were a real plus!
I hope to stay there again in 2014!
great location! clean. easy in easy out. loved the garage, storage and games.
There is a small Grocery / Deli / Liquor store called The Wild Plum right next to our condo's location. It is a restaurant too and there's another great one called La Montana right across the street. We also have The Snowbird Restaurant & Lounge right across the street, on the edge of the slopes. The heated Promenade that wraps around the ski area base makes any of the 15 or so restaurants/bars easy to walk to. In the summer, Burgess Creek flows right through this area, & is a popular place for kids to play, along with the 'kids adventure zone' activities in Gondola Square.
