Neat house, not very inviting

  • 2 of 5
The house was really interesting, spacious and modern. However, we did not feel welcome at all. There were no directions for any of the hi-tech features, actually there were no directions at all, or even a "welcome" note with tips about the house (how to turn off the bright outside lights, heat/air, etc.), the area or anything! All we had was a long e-mail with what NOT to do before our arrival including avoiding the drawers with "red dots" on them (stickers) because the owners actually live here apparently. We were also warned that there were cameras outside the house that were monitored so no parties (not that our 7 and 9 year old boys are a risk for that yet - it creeped us out). There were lots of locked cabinets and "off limits" and no hygiene items like bar soaps, shampoo, etc. included in the bathroom. It really felt odd staying in a house where people live. For the price it was not what we expected. The hot tub did not heat either and, oh a detail, the bottom floor (where the non-master bedrooms are) is not heated. It was cold in the summer, cant imagine what it is like in the winter!!! Our kids turned to pop-sickles. My advice - keep looking.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this home, it's beautiful. The house is fun and unique, it has a wonderful view and is a short 10 minute drive to town. We stayed for two weeks and easily could have stayed longer.
Pros: beautiful home, great kitchen, nice view, clean, short trip to town
Cons: (but doesn't take away from the 5 star review) wifi was down for a couple days and the water shut off a few times during our trip, see previous review. It required us to turn a valve to get it back on and was fine within 20 min or so.

Brent and Shannon were very easy to work with!

Honestly, a great property and we would love to stay here again! Thanks!

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful! It was a perfect fit for our party of 8. Although we didn't use the private loft, there was plenty of room for all of us in the main house. We spent all of our days at Durango Mountain Resort and one of things to look forward to after a long day of skiing is getting to relax in this house. We made meals in the awesome kitchen and relaxed in the sunken living room, downstairs gameroom and the hot tub. Location was an easy drive into town and to the mountain.

The only issue we had was losing water a few times, I believe due to the water being supplied by a well. This was our first experience with well water. Shannon and Brent were very attentive and assisted us during the short periods of time without water. It really wasn't a big deal at all. I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Maria, our apologies for the water supply issue. We will be supplying instructions going forward to mitigate any issues our guests may have with our water supply. As we are on a well our water production rates are only about 5 GPM, so it is possible to out pace our supply. We appreciate your excellent review and for your troubles we will offer you one free night should you wish to come back to the house. Again thank you for being our guest. Keith Ayers,

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5
This home was absolutely stunning! The photos are an exact depiction of what to expect. The view from the master bedroom as the sun rises is beautiful. The home seemed to be well maintained and clean, aside from one of bathrooms downstairs, which was not enough to discredit the rating of the home. The owner was extremely helpful in answering any of the questions we had prior to our arrival. The location of the home is close to many attractions, we visited Trimble Hot Springs, Downtown Durango and Durango Mountain. Our guests consisted of 3 couples and 2 singles. It worked out great because there are 3 bedrooms in the home and 1 bedroom above the garage in a loft area with 2 beds. The pool room/bar area is a great place to gather with your friends or family. They have an iHome stereo system so you can connect your music to their device and listen while playing. We had a great time at the house and would recommend the stay.
