About Christina Dearien
My wife and I live in Texas with our two children. Several years ago, we decided we would rather enjoy our investment rather than watch it go up and down on the computer as the stock market rose and fall. So, here we are! We loved Durango and the Purgatory ski resort, so we purchased this home and have been here a ton since. We've had many friends, family members, and renters all stay here and love it as much as we do. This home is truly secluded and allows you to totally unplug and relax. We wish we could live here!
Christina Dearien purchased this house in 2007
Why Christina Dearien chose Durango
Durango, Colorado is in one of the most amazing areas of the country for scenery and activities. We enjoy hiking, fishing, jeeping, rafting, biking, skiing, and sitting on the deck and relaxing. All of those things can be found in abundance in this area. In addition, the town of Durango is wonderful, with great restaurants and people, making this region a perfect all around location for summer and winter fun.
What makes this house unique
Most of the homes in this area for rent are nice and offer a great place to stay in a great location. We have been in several of the rental homes in the area, and ours is much more comfortable and nicely furnished than most. We spend 6-8 weeks per year here, and we host guests who are used to staying in the nicest places, and they all love the quality of our home. In addition, we offer TRUE seclusion. This house is at the back of the development, surrounded by National Forest. There isn't a sound other than wildlife and yourself. Quality of the home and absolute tranquility are the two unique benefits of our home.
