Durango Condo Rental Photos and Description

Gorgeous Decor, Unobstructed CO Mountain Views, Sleeps 2-8, Huge Jacuzzi Tub

Are you yearning for sweeping CO Rocky Mountain VIEWS? Located at Durango Mountain resort at Purgatory Mountain.....enjoy sweeping summer greenery against Cerulean skis, flaming fall aspens, and glorious snow covered winter peaks. Vistas that bring an unexpected smile of contentment, and make you feel great to be alive.

TEN SPECIAL condo qualities we think you'll love: 1.The Rocky Mountain views. Hands down 'biggest' mountain views of any condo we've been in. 2. AlpenGlow, our home faces the right direction to enjoy it frequently 3. Both a patio and a balcony. The patio has a spacious play area around it where Marmots come out in summer, and snowmen can be built in winter. Pier 1 wicker furniture on both, and a gas BBQ. 4. Location, in winter you can watch bunny slope skiers from the patio, in summer the bushes over bunny slopes are home to songbirds and humming birds, with Frisbee golf course just below. 5. Ski In and ski out, right from our courtyard. Ski down the bunny slope, then ride up the transfer lift to the high speed 6 pack lift. For winter summer, and fall; walk 3 minutes across Sheol street to the lifts, ski beach, Purgies Restaurant, the Alpine Slide, mini golf and more. 6. Great big jacuzzi in home 5FT square with 2 shower heads. Great for Mommy and Daddy, or kids bubble baths. 7. The San Juan mountain views from the queen bedroom are honeymoon worthy. Step outside to your patio for snow, summer greenery, or fall colors. 8. Lots of upgrades over the original East Rim units including new floors, lighting, bathroom vanities, closets, nifty bottom freezer stainless fridge. 9. Corner unit gives extra indoors out feeling, covered exterior entrance feels like home, ski locker and courtyard 10. Carefully chosen art and decor, every piece of art, bedding and furniture is about hoping our guests enjoy a special vacation.

Lots more 'Views to Dream About ' and Durango mountain information follows; first a few important notes: our reservations are invoiced through the secure HA/VRBO reservations system. For our guests protection we will never ask you to: wire money, nor to mail a check, no payments by phone, no PayPal. After booking we provide a 15 page info packed Welcome Letter, and have our own DurangoLove site guests can use to help plan activities. For inquiries you'll usually hear back in 24 hours, but thank you for understanding that we may be on a family trip or dealing with other aspects of life outside our rentals.

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.

We love to do interiors. While you'll still find a few lingering details from the original 70's building; all the beautiful furniture, attractive flooring, luxurious cotton velvet drapes, kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and home contents are NEW!; each item carefully chosen to make our home a special place for couples and families to enjoy and make life-long memories.

Our 3 bedroom condo offers a maximum occupancy of 7 adults, or 8 maximum including infants and any pre-approved pet. Bedroom #1 is a king bedroom, Bedroom #2 is a queen bedroom with incredible views and a patio. Please note that bedroom Bedroom #3 is semi-private with full/twin bunk. This room is best suited to children or teens. Upstairs is a Queen AIR sleeper sofa. There are 2 powder rooms, 1 full bathroom with shower/tub, and a jacuzzi room with 2 shower heads (3 toilets, 3 vanities, 2 tubs, 2 showers).

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!

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.

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!

What an amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The views really are amazing. We loved hanging out on the patio and enjoying our coffee in the morning and eating dinner outside. The inside of the condo was very clean and absolutely beautiful - the photos do not do it justice. It looked professionally done - everything was absolutely perfect. The furnishings that were chosen are not only beautiful but durable - we stayed here with two boys ages 3 and 18 months so we can definitely assess the durability factor. There were a few light colored items that we tucked away during our stay, but overall this place is very family friendly. The keyless locking system was a breeze to use and so convenient.

Being a very quick walk from the amenities at Purgatory was awesome - each afternoon we went to the outdoor bar, had a couple drinks and let the kids run around in the grass, play horseshoes and frisbee.

The owners were very responsive when we had questions, and provided lots of input on things we could do with our young family while we were in the area. We had a perfect vacation at this condo and we cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca, it is a happy feeling that our home was a special part of your family's summer memories. Thank you for being so pleasurable to communicate with. Reading details of how the condo, patio, balcony and location worked for your family is fun for us too! Your children running around in the evening grass beneath the slopes paints a beautiful image. It is soooo hard to be away from Durango; thank you for "taking us there" for a few minutes with your lovely descriptions. We look forward to your family's return.

Fantastic Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
Condo was exactly as described and was very welcoming and decorated beautifully. The location can’t be beat (at Durango Mountain Resort about 25-30 minutes North of Durango). We enjoyed the convenience of Durango with the wonderful privacy, hikes, and views of the mountains. The owners were very helpful, and you can tell even the little details are important to them. We used a lot of their advice on things to do and places to eat. Ken and Sue’s restaurant was out of this world; we also enjoyed a wonderful day visit to Mesa Verde and took the train to Silverton. We would absolutely stay here again!

A great deal of thought goes into each room, and we both relish to hear that guests enjoyed the interior. So happy that Ken and Sue's was a yummy fit for your taste buds too! Thank you very much for choosing "Views to Dream About", we hope you'll return soon.

Beautiful condo and great location!

  • 5 of 5
My family visited Durango last week and fell in love with the area and this condo. It is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need to feel right at home. This condo is lovely for not only an adult trip, but is also perfect for families. The older kids loved the bunk beds and the parents loved that a baby gate and pack n play were available for the baby. The condo is situated right on the bunny slope which is especially fun if you have kiddos in ski school. The condo is extremely convenient for skiing in and out and is only a short walk to the plaza. The owners were very helpful and responded quickly to any questions. We hope to make this a yearly trip for our family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being such awesome guests! Cody and I appreciate knowing that our condo and location was the "perfect fit" for your ski vacation. Envisioning your children laughing there, another Mom relaxing to the views, and parents enjoying how easy it is to get the kids on the slopes; is wonderful. We are so happy when we are there; and love hearing that your family enjoyed the same emotions. We strive to make the decor special, yet it's those mountain creations out the windows that seem to bring a little extra joy to each day.
