About Sunshine & Cody
If you've yet to be completely enamored with Durango; it only takes once! We fell in love with Durango mountain our first visit; and purchased 'Slope Side Romance' a few months later. The refreshing mountain climate and charming down-town genuinely offer year-round fun for everyone. Nearly a decade ago, we left satisfying careers in the US as a high school teacher and commercial builder; to start a custom building business in Costa Rica. We love USA! dearly, even more so after living abroad; yet were drawn by the sense of adventure and lack of traffic jams. We miss the US greatly, and have come to cherish Durango mountain as a gathering place for family, and an escape from Costa Rica's heat. CR's beaches are stunning for vacations, ha ha; yet quite sweltering while out working. The intensity of the tropical heat makes one want to stay immobile on a beach blanket or wet in the ocean; whereas the refreshing mountain climate inspires family activity! Our young daughter reminds us weekly that she wants to go to Durango for horseback riding, hiking, skiing or dance class at Bella's. Due to living in a tiny, rural coastal area with limited amenities; we truly appreciate Durango's down-town area too: the arts, great eats, festivals, churches, parks, charming shops, the 'choo choo'! On the mountain we love: horses, rock hopping streams, Stunning hiking vistas, breathtaking lakes, fishing, the scent of the trees, the surprise snow in early May, looking out at the mountains and feeling like time has stopped. Our hearts are torn between the tropical beauty and responsibility of loyal building employees in Costa Rica; and the many opportunities that Durango offers for raising children. While we dream about moving to Durango in the coming years; we want guests to thoroughly enjoy our home. We have worked to create an ambiance that we hope our guests will also create memories in, and want to call their Durango 'home away from home' each year.
Sunshine & Cody purchased this condo in 2008
Why Sunshine & Cody chose Durango
Upstairs Views. Downstairs Views. Balcony and Patio. Corner Unit Views. The Waterfall next to us. Exterior Entrance without Hallways. Oversize Jacuzzi Tub for together time. Easy Walk to Main Lifts and Bunny Slope Tunnel. Stroll to morning Starbucks in the Plaza, Refreshing Mountain Temperatures in Summer, Views of the Aspens Turning Color in Fall! So close to sooooo many lakes and Streams for hiking, drawing and pick-nicks. Perfectly easy to drive down-town as often as we like to enjoy the Historic district and arts. Just as easy to take a fall or summer adventure day to Silverton or Ouray.
What makes this condo unique
Lovingly Upgraded; we have spent many vacations on remodel projects, and hired a few out. Built in the early 70's, East Rim are one of few resort buildings that feel homey (only 8 units) and have exterior entrances (Hubby takes issue with condo hallways, ha ha). Our building is extra special as it is set into the cliff-side beside the waterfall, and down below the street level. Inside we opted for a mix of amber Bruce distressed hardwood flooring, slate and travertine. In addition to flooring and the kitchen, all lighting, fixtures and design elements were hand picked. We strive to care for our vacation rentals as if they were our full-time residence. We hope when guests head home; you'll remember your inside ambiance as much as the fun on the mountain.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The rooms were very accommodating and the condo was better than advertised. We had a beautiful view of the mountains from our balcony. DMR was less than 50 yards from our front door. We could not of asked for better ski conditions, 45 inches of snow fall in 3 days makes for great skiing/boarding. I enjoyed working with the owners. They were honest, we had no problems with the deposit refund, everything was as promised and Sunshine is a very sweet , personable, and caring person. I will definitely be lodging with Sunshine again. I can't wait to visit with my family. Of all the places I have been skiing DMR has the best variety of slopes and is very family friendly. Thanks for the beautiful condo.
