Casa Verde is located 5 minutes north of historic Durango Colorado in the Animas River Valley. From our front deck you can enjoy spectacular views of Durango's famous red cliffs and fourteen thousand foot peaks or watch as the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge train travels north through the valley. With TWO living rooms, a big backyard, hiking trails nearby and biking right out the front door it might be hard to leave the house! A 2007 Caldera Waterfall series hot tub with 42 jets will help you relax from all your activities.
This split level family home has a spacious open floor plan, fully equipped kitchen, and dining area that is perfect for groups and gatherings. The upstairs living area invites you to relax in our reclining leather couches in front of a crackling fire or enjoy our large flat screen TV. Downstairs you will find a second living area/den with more couches, a second TV with PS2, movies and games, a perfect relaxing or playing.
The spacious master suite is upstairs and has a beautiful handmade king size aspen log bed, travertine two person shower, walk in closet, and a small private deck overlooking the back yard. There is also a single futon and a couch you can sleep on if the kids want to stay close.
There are four well appointed bedrooms downstairs, three with queen beds and one with bunk beds. The middle bathroom has a recessed soaking tub in front of a picture window. The downstairs entrance has a large mudroom for gear and boots.
A deluxe seven person hot tub is out on the back patio. Durango Mountain Resort is only a 20 minute drive away and 5 minutes down the road is Trimble Hot Springs and Day Spa with an Olympic sized pool. There is ample parking in front for large vehicles.
Shona and Forrest came to Durango to attend Fort Lewis College, in 1990. We have tried to leave, and spent about 4 years in San Francisco, but the Animas Valley has drawn us both back to stay. We love Durango and all the natural beauty and vibrant community it has to offer.
Forrest & Shona Jones purchased this house in 2002
When we bought this house it was in rough shape, but was in our price range! We felt it would be a great place to start and raise our family. We love the property because it is surrounded by beauty and nature. The irrigation creek in the back gives the sound of water flowing all summer and waters the apple and cherry trees in the huge back yard. After a few years of work making it beautiful, we decided to start renting it to families who could enjoy it. This house is not a 'luxury' vacation home. It is very comfortable and perfect for large groups of friends or families with kids and well behaved pets who want to have fun and be comfortable in a relaxed and welcoming environment and enjoy all that Durango has to offer.
Casa Verde, is about as close to town as you can get, and feel like you are in the country. The house is on one of the best road bike loops in the area and minutes away from great mountain biking. As 25 year Durango locals, we live just a few miles away and are available with great ideas and advice on how to make the most of your vacation. We have always loved living in Durango, and look forward to being back in Casa Verde one day.
This house has been wonderful! The Four Courners Rally was great fun, and the house was great for all of us from out of state. Plenty of parking, privacy and great views. The kitchen / living areas were so comfortable for our large group.
Our stay at Casa Verde was with a group of 15 young adults up for a weekend in Durango. This house was perfect for our needs. Between the number of bedrooms, the amount of settings available in the kitchen, to the available parking, this house does not disappoint. The hot tub is a great soaking tub with space for several people.
The separation of most of the bedrooms from the main living space worked very well, as those who turned in early were out of the way of the main group. We were also able to set up a couple of air mattresses to supplement the beds available in the house, which was key.
I would recommend Casa Verde to any large group looking to stay in Durango on a budget. We'll be back!
This home was larger than expected and comfortably accommodated our multi-family Durango Mountain getaway. We routinely travel together and this home was one of our favorites. The kids were comfortable hanging out in the downstairs living area while the adults found plenty of space to hang out upstairs. The kitchen was spacious and well stocked. The location was also ideal. We were able to have relaxing mornings before heading to the mountain, yet we were just minutes away from town if we needed anything. The owners were available via text and responded promptly to a few questions we had during our stay. Additionally, the check-in / check-out process was unbelievably easy. This will be a repeat property for our crew!
The house was nice and was able to accommodate our group of 14. It is a bit older of a property which could be seem in some parts of the home. Overall the experience was great and the owners were available to address any needs we had. Forest and Shona were great to work with and the location was great for snowboarding at durango mountain. I would definitely rent this location again in the future.
The home is much nicer than the pictures! Plenty of room, we had 3 families a total of 11 people and NEVER felt cramped. Everything was clean and orderly. The back yard was wonderful for the kids to sled and play in. The hot tub was the bomb after a day of snowboarding. The home was comfortably close to town and yet still in the woods...this was a GREAT VRBO!!
This home easily accommodated four families each with two children under the age of 4. The adults were able to relax upstairs while the kids enjoyed a movie downstairs. There are a few cosmetic issues with the home, but all in all a great rental!
This was a great property for us. We had 5 families on a summer vacation and this was great after several days of camping. Very comfortable, plenty of space, great kitchen and the hot tub was awesome. Also, it had good parking especially considering we had 2 small trailers. Forest was great to work with and we would stay again if the need and opportunity arises. Thanks Forest!!!
