Overview

Scorpio Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This beautifully updated, two bedroom, two full bath condo in Vail Village is our second home. We have equipped and furnished it to be a true 'home-away-from-home.' It has a huge natural stone fireplace in the living room, king-sized bed in master bedroom, twins in second bedroom, sleeper sofa, and a full-sized dining area. The unit is on the 4th floor of an elevator building. You will have an assigned covered parking space. NO smoking allowed. We think you will love the condo as much as we do.

Ideally located midway between the Village Center and Lionshead, it is an easy walk to the Gondola One lift or the Eagle Bahn Gondola. We provide a private ski locker for your use at the base of Gondola One. The locker fits four pairs of skis and boots, and even has built-in boot dryers. They have a full line of ski rental equipment right at the locker site; as our guest, you can get a 20% discount on all rentals and 10% discount on ski tuning services. Additionally, you can receive a 10% discount on airport shuttle service from Colorado Mountain Express, if you book online. Visit our website for more information.

About Debora Morris

My husband and I live in a suburb of Chicago. We are semi-retired and enjoy skiing, Hobie sailing, windsurfing, golfing and most outdoor activities. We enjoy Vail all year-round and try to get there as often as possible.

Debora Morris purchased this condo in 1999

Why Debora Morris chose Scorpio

After coming to Vail to ski for about 20 years, we decided to purchase a property in Vail Village. We wanted a location that was walking distance to lifts, shops and restaurants. In retrospect, this was one of the best decisions we've made. We remodeled the entire unit and added high-end touches like custom alderwood doors and oak floors. Our guests find it to be a very comfortable and tastefully decorated condo. Since we are located midway between the Village and Lionshead, both can be easily walked to.

What makes this condo unique

Since we do not like to walk in ski boots, we have a ski locker at the base of the Vista Bahn lift which our guests can use during their stay. The locker can store up to four pairs of skis and boots.

Winter in Vail

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this condo! The owners were fantastic in communication and were so very organized that they made every aspect so easy. The condo is exactly as advertised. Highly recommend!

Cozy, comfortable condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 teenagers) stayed in this condo the week between Christmas and New Year's, and found it to be everything the previous reviewers indicated. The condo was light, clean, comfortable, well equipped, with terrific views, and the location was so perfect to everything - we were easy walking distance from ski lockers, restaurants, and shops. Walking into the condo did feel like coming into someone's home versus a rental - we have had experiences where basic things like soap in the bathrooms or kleenex were not provided. This was definitely not the case in this condo. There were sturdy, working humidifiers in each room, plenty of firewood, cooking oils, spices, pots, pans, ziploc bags, foil, and plastic wrap, as well as full-sized bars of soap in the bathroom, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, extra toilet paper and kleenex stocked in the laundry area. Even a sewing kit with the right colored thread was there, which I gratefully found when a top I packed needed immediate mending. The internet connection worked great for our iPhones and iPads, but we could not get our laptop computers to connect. The condo was spacious and light, and there was plenty of space for all of us - again, definitely not always the case in other rentals we've had in Vail. The ski locker in town was super convenient for storing skis and saving the hassle of lugging skis, poles, and boots back and forth every day. Beds were comfortable, and the welcome bottle of wine definitely appreciated. Warning: Assigned parking spot in the garage is super narrow, so parking our large SUV in the space was virtually impossible with a vehicle on one side and a pillar on the other. Outside parking was an option, but daily snowfall made it a less attractive one. Owner was responsive and easy to contact. All in all, we loved our stay in this unit, and would definitely plan to rent it again for our next trip to Vail.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 perfect days at this condo. It is ideally located, very easy walking distance to downtown Vail Village, with large living room windows offering up a stunning view of Vail Mountain, and its Bear Tree ski run. The condo is very roomy for one couple and just right for two. The owners actually live in the condo for a few weeks of both the winter and summer seasons so it is kept up as, and really feels like, a nicely appointed home away from home, rather than just a "rental".

The bedrooms are a nice size, the master with en suite full bath and the other with beds which can be configured as one king or two twins as needed. Everything in the condo is in excellent condition, comfortable, convenient, and attractive.

There is a great deal of attention to detail throughout the place, such as reading lights next to all of the beds, end tables for all living room seating areas, full size high quality bars of soap in the bath, plenty of extra blankets, dimmer switches for all ceiling lighting, large distortion free mirrors in both bedrooms, very nice, non-institutional, charming and unique artwork and objets d'arts, and more. The included WI-FI is further complemented by the availability of a color printer and an under counter wall-mounted plug-panel ready to conveniently accommodate multiple phones, ipads, camera chargers, etc.

The kitchen is equipped with a surprisingly generous assortment of utensils, graters, chef tools, actually sharp (almost unheard of!) knives, and high quality stainless steel pots and pans. Additionally, if you are a baker, this is the condo for you; cookies, cakes, breads, cupcakes, you name it, you will have what you need to make it. As if this isn't enough, many kitchen items which we usually anticipate having to buy and then leave behind, such as plastic wrap, bags, tin foil, paper goods, basic condiments (ketchup, olive oil, salt, pepper) and even cooking spices like dried herbs, powdered ginger and curry, are all graciously supplied.

I could go on and on singing the praises of this condo (e.g. the locker in town is a great touch, saving one from the chore and hassle of schlepping your ski equipment and boots back and forth every day, there is plenty of free parking) but I won't, because, it must be obvious enough by now that, given another opportunity to vacation in Vail, there is no place other than this condo that we would even consider staying. As already stated, it was 4 perfect days.

Spring Break in Vail

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for March Spring Break with our adult child and her partner. It was perfect for our needs, well appointed, comfortable and convenient. Often when you rent you find that there's nothing but the bare essentials on-hand. Not with this rental. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and made eating-in a breeze. Plenty of blankets, towels and firewood. Even a bottle of welcoming wine waiting for us upon our arrival.

It was exactly as represented in the listing, well-maintained and clean. We definitely recommend this unit at Scorpio
