Guestbook comments from the owner

I am the owner and would like to apologize for the leaks and repairs which we had prior to and during the 2013 Christmas Holidays, during a time when rental occupancy was at high levels. As such, all of the repairs could not take place while the house was occupied. It took 3 months for the contractor to resolve all the issues and make the necessary repairs while the house was vacant. All of the items mentioned have been fully repaired. All of the appliances are fully functional and the ice maker has always worked. There is a button on the inside of the refrigerator which turns the ice maker on and off. Sometimes renters press this button to off and hence the ice maker stops making ice. Please note that some of the bad reviews are highly exaggerated and that this house has been on VRBO since 2007. Previous to the negative reviews, which took place over a 3 month period, this house received only good reviews and most people will not write a review unless they were dissatisfied with something. In over 7 years, we have only had 3 months when the house was not up to my high standards and we tried to resolve the problems as quickly as humanly possible. This is a great house and we would be more than happy to show it to you in person prior to you making a reservation, so that you can see how great it is for yourself.

What a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a church retreat and had an amazing time! The property is wonderful and so is the owner- great experience all around. The house was very clean and full of lavish decor that screams ultimate mountain getaway! Amazing master bedroom with an incredible bathroom that's bigger than our entire apartment. It was difficult to leave!

Carlos was wonderful and very accommodating. Excellent communication with prompt response- he made it very easy to book the property and schedule our arrival and departure.

We will definitely book this house again if it's available! Suggest you do the same!

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a weekend at this beautiful home. We had a total of 15 people, 7 adults & 8 children. The home was perfect for us; plenty of room for everyone to spread out and not feel cramped, beautifully appointed, with everything we needed for our stay. All of the things we wanted to do we're within a short 4 minute drive to downtown. The listing was completely accurate, the property was very well-maintained and the property manager, Carlos went above & beyond to answer our questions and accommodate our needs. We will definitely recommend this property to our friends and relatives; and we will definitely go through the same property management when we book a trip to Breckenridge in the future. The whole downtown area is a delightful place to spend time. We were a little concerned before renting this house because it had received a couple of bad reviews during a short period of time last year, but Carlos explained that there were a few problems that took a couple of months to resolve and fix and that everything was now back to normal. He even offered to give us a tour of the house before we committed to renting it. We are so glad we rented this home and highly recommend it to anyone!

Lots of issues for what could be a beautiful home

  • 2 of 5
We came in on Sunday evening around 4:00pm, and as we tried to settle in more and more little issues kept coming up on the house. The main fireplace was not working, light bulbs out all over the home, no TV in main living room, very little towels for a 19 bed home, no towels for hot tub, mold in downstairs bath, toilet seats coming off in just about every bath, no gas grill, very small charcoal grill and when my brother and his wife went to bed, they found an extremely faulty ceiling with a large leak in their bedroom. We called Carlos Sunday around 7:00pm and again around 9:00pm and received no response until 8:00am the next morning. We were sure glad that we were able to get into the home because obviously there is no 24hr response service! I had even asked Carlos in an email, "when I call this number, I will get an immediate response and he said yes." He must not be in on Saturday and Sundays but failed to tell me that. On New Years around 1:30pm there was no water in the home. There was a maintenance man at the home changing light bulbs and I told him we have no water now! He told me that the dam in the neighborhood is open and closed throughout the week and in 15minutes it will come back on. We had to leave and after two hours when we returned, the water was still not back on. We walked over to the neighbors and they had water. We called Carlos and luckily he answered the phone. My husband and Carlos figured, hopefully, it was a blown fuse. So two hours later we had water. So we had a houseful of people for four hrs without water, and the maintenance man didn't even bother to stay to see if the water would come back on!!So not sure what that story about the dam was about. And, yes the neighbors get very agitated if you park a car in the street and also the plows come at the end of the day after a big snow. The home is a beautiful home and has a very nice setup and has lots of beds for a large amount of people. But, this home needs a lot of work before it is rented out again. Carlos never apologized for any inconveniences nor did he compensate us for anything. We paid Carlos a large sum of money for this home and it is not worth your money. We have been renting homes for 15 years all over the country and this one was a disappointment.

A Glorified Fraternity House

  • 2 of 5
We ( my husband, three sons and their families) arrived Wednesday before Thanksgiving to find the house not quite what we expected. One of the double ovens did not work, the hand rail going down to lower level was loose and coming out of the wall, upper shelf on dishwasher broken and kept coming off the bracket, chewing gum smeared on bedspread in upper level bedroom with chocolate or some other stain on the blanket beneath, wall heater pulled away from wall in MBR along with a wall with glue or some adhesive where a mirror or shelves had once been located. The lower level had about a 10 cables coming out of the wall that were about 12 feet long (fortunately they were not hot wires). Carlos, the property manager, assured me there was a roaster pan for our Thanksgiving Turkey...no roaster pan. We purchased an aluminum one at the local grocery store. Oh well... we all managed to have a good time once we settled in. This place is pretty worn out. On a positive note...there was plenty of room for all of us, which included three babies and one teenager. I do hope Carlos was able to make repairs before the next group arrived. We use VRBO often and this is the first time we have been disappointed.

Extremely Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
The positives of the home are Carlos, the property manager is very responsive and the home is quite large as described. The negatives are the home is extremely run down. There is water damage on every level. The basement bath room is quite nasty with water damage as is the ceiling. The carpet in the basement is also quite dirty. One of the double ovens was not working during our stay as was the ice maker in the refrig. The bedding is not comfortable at all. At the rate charged for a 4 night stay I would have expected the upkeep and the quality of the property to be more in line with a 4 star hotel than a 2 star hotel. The property is big, the management company is great to work with, but the home itself is a disappointment.

Lots of space, but house needs work

  • 3 of 5
We had 10 adults and 9 kids (ages 5 and under) and never felt cramped. However, the house itself on the interior was lacking some of the charm you would think it has. Because it is listed for sale, some of things you would expect to be there simply aren't there. The most obvious was that the fridge wasn't even connected to the water line, nor were there ice trays in the freezer. The result...no ice. Small thing, but the small things matter. Also, there is a lot of water damage visible in the ceilings in the house - in the room right by the garage on the main floor and in the basement. Carlos, who manages the property was responsive and gave us a late checkout, but in the end I was glad it was a "locals weekend getaway" and not a destination for us. If that had been the case, I think I would have been pretty disappointed. But, if you want a cheap place and don't mind it feeling like a house waiting to be sold, go ahead and grab this house for the space and relatively close location to town.
