SKI In/ Ski Out! During ski season just step across our building's courtyard to the ski locker, grab your skis, take a few more steps down a tiny 2 meter slope; then cruise down to the transfer lift. See photos of 'how to ski in ski out' from our condo at our Durango Love website. Warm the legs up on the Columbine learning area, or ride the 'Graduate' lift right up to the 6 pack lift, ski school and ski beach. To reach ski beach, adult ski school, children's ski school, restaurants, and the 6 pack lift you can also walk straight across Sheol st. and pop your skis.

Resting grandparents can even watch the kids ski on the bunny slope from our balcony and patio while they enjoy the wood fireplace and stunning Rocky Mountain Views. Relax or romance in the evenings with a soak in our massive (and properly maintained) jacuzzi tub with 2 massage shower heads, it will seat up to 4 adults if you prefer to use it like a hot tub. Finish the evening with a snuggle by the fireplace, dining out at Purgies or Paradise Pizza, or with dinner and family games at the huge farmhouse dining table.

In SUMMER,SPRING & FALL enjoy the amazing vistas, BBQing, and relaxing from both a patio and a balcony, each with Pier 1 outdoor wicker seating for 4. There are so many lakes and hikes near-by, you'll never run out of adventures. The chair lifts run in summer and on fall weekends for hiking, photography and mountain biking. Mountain bikes have their own lift. Kids love the summer and fall weekend activities in the plaza, the mountain alpine slide, mini golf, and Frisbee golf.

About Sunshine & Cody

'Views to Dream About, Ski In Ski Out' is our new listing; however we have been renting by owner on Durango Mountain since 2008. Our philosophy of owner vacation rentals is to think about making each space unique, and to maintain the interior ambiance each year. We want to offer guests somewhere special to make their memories! Cody and I share a passion for home building and interior design; and strive to offer unique, comfortable, beautiful spaces for our guests to enjoy their Rocky Mountain vacation time. We'd love the blessing of more little ones ourselves, and make sure that the bunk room is inviting for children. We also provide a pack n play, and fisher price high chair/booster in each of our condos. For the moment, we and our young daughter feel grateful for each day that we get to spend in the refreshing mountain air, enjoying down-town Durango, and exploring Silverton, Ouray, Mesa Verde and the mountain lakes and hiking trails. We hope that the carefully chosen furniture, bedding, lighting, art and special details (like beautiful Pier 1 dinnerware and Italian glasses) will be enjoyed by your family as much as it is by ours! We're both romantics, and have made sure the bedroom designs are lovely enough to spend your Durango honeymoon in; or to renew your woo (even if there are 4 children in the next rooms:)

Sunshine & Cody purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sunshine & Cody chose Durango

The Views, the Views, the Views. It certainly does not hurt that our condo home is ski in/ Ski out. We also love the East Rim community of 4 buildings (8 units each and green space around each building) and location at Durango Mountain resort where we have owned for 5 years. Both our lovingly upgraded and beautifully furnished East Rim units have upstairs balconies and downstairs patios. With a small investment in hummingbird, bird and squirrel feeders; the birds, chipmunks and Marmots make Spring, Summer and Fall stays even more fun!

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy outdoor seating and dining on both the patio and balcony in Spring, Summer and Fall. In winter, the ski in/out option is pretty convenient! Year-round the 2 levels of corner unit views will make you feel just a little closer to Heaven!

Owner's Response: Thank you for appreciating the effort Sunshine has put into our guest welcome materials. Thank you too, for noting that we strive to keep the kitchen implements well stocked. We understand a great aspect of renting a condo is being able to save by eating in. Eating in is more fun for the chef and family if all the tools are on hand, and there are attractive table settings. Our guests' appreciation motivates us to maintain and add more little extras every year:)

Best Ever Mountain Rental with Pets

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT place for us and our family dog to vacation in the mountains. The condo has such a beautiful view of the majestic East Rim from the family room and deck, that I wanted to be able to paint it! The furnishings are high end from the wood floors to beddings. We appreciated the comfortable sofas with many downfilled cushions while we relaxed after a great day of exploring. We will definitely be returning for more fishing, hiking, golf, shopping, bird watching, and beautiful mountain views. Don't miss this one! The owners are friendly and helpful beyond expectation.

Owner's Response: Dear Pat, Thank you so much for appreciating the decor details in our condo. Hearing that our guests really enjoy the decor is truly motivational. The photo you shared of your doggie "Coop" relaxing on the balcony to the San Juan Mountain views was a treat; just wished we were there next to him! Thank you so much, we will be looking forward to your return visit.

Purgatory? Nothing like Dante pictured it.

  • 5 of 5

This was the greatest place we have stayed in! The pictures do not do the place justice. We practically lived on the deck. The home was beautifully decorated, well-maintained and appliances, etc. were state-of the art. Much to do locally in almost all directions. We are already planning a return.

Owner's Response: Dear Harold & Debbie, Your review came on what had been a tough family week. Reading your experience and enjoyment of the condo was so uplifting for Cody and I both. You made us want to be there, yet hearing that it had been just right for your time was even better. Thank you so much, we hope you'll get to make another trip to the mountain soon.

Beautiful views - beautifully decorated condo

  • 5 of 5

The views from all living room and bedrooms are fantastic. The owners are extremely detailed with instructions about the condo and details about the area. The condo is in the resort and just a quick walk to the main courtyard. My kids loved the summer activities. We loved being right between Durango and Silverton. The condo was stocked with everything you could need. I highly recommend it!
