About Billy Marcus

I split my time between Vail & Austin, TX. I am an avid swing & lindy hop dancer and travel all over the US competing & social dancing. My goal is to some day live in the Vail Valley full time and help build a local dance community. Though my passion is dancing & teaching dance, my career is selling meat or other protein based foods all over the world. I'm fulfilling the destiny of a long line of meat traders from back in the 1930's when my grandfather sold meat for Swift in Chicago. Another passion of mine is snowboarding & telemark skiing, lately it's been all about telemarking.

Billy Marcus purchased this house in 2003

Why Billy Marcus chose Intermountain

I grew up in Kansas and my parents met at CU Boulder. They both have an affinity towards mountain living. Naturally we grew up vacationing in this area and picked Vail because it's one of the best ski resorts in America. We wanted a home centrally located between Vail, Minturn, Beaver Creek, Avon & Edwards making the drive to both ski areas within 10 - 15 minutes. We also enjoy cooking and having Safeway & City Market within a 3 minute drive helps feed our passion.

What makes this house unique

I wanted to have a place in Vail that was close enough to rely on public transportation to get to the town of Vail but central enough to drive down valley to Avon & Edwards. The home is in a private, residential neighborhood which is close to the park & Stephens Off Leash dog park and a three minutes walk to the Meadow Creek Bus stop that picks up every 15 to 30 minutes depending on the season. The private shared hot tub allows our guests to unwind after a long day of activities. We are dog friendly for non-aggressive breeds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent stay! Great place, a wonderful experience

Guest: Pablo (California)

Date of Stay: November 24, 2010 Review Submitted: December 6, 2010



I definitely plan to stay here again. The house is fantastic, we were VERY comfortable in the 2.5 bedroom east unit. A great, large and nicely equipped kitchen was ideal for us as we cooked several really large meals, and the big hot tub right outside the door was amazing for after skiing. A short walk to the west vail bus was rather convenient as well. The owner is also very accommodating and easygoing, overall a painless experience renting from her. A pleasure.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

My Kids and I spent a week here for great skiing. All was well, had enough space, and a nice large kitchen. Used the nearby shuttle every day to ski at Vail, or head into town for entertainment. When arrived was told by neighbors that we were out of propane, called Billy, and next day he had it all taken care of. Billy was responsive to any questions we had.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic stay here. It was close to the trails and had a free shuttle into town for dinner. It was perfect for our two dogs and walking distance to the dog park. We loved being able to grill and cook after hiking all day. Billy was great to work with and was very accommodating with our last minute request to stay at the property.

Nice place and great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location for the pups to walk to the dog park daily and bike path close. The other guests in the townhouse were really nice neighbors. Just wish the weather was better for our 2 week stay. The only suggestion I have is more storage in the master bedroom- like a dresser. I would recommend this property and would like to stay again. Billy is prompt when something needed to be fixed. Good service!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. I have purchased a brand new dresser for the master bathroom. This will serve perfectly for the guests staying in the master bedroom.

Valley View

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location on the west side of Vail, set in a tranquil suburb a short drive to the village. This accommodation lived up to our expectations. Some of the amenities are shared with the other guests, 3 units in total, including the hot tub and BBQ area. The unit was spotless with plenty of freshly laundered sheets, towels etc. I enjoyed the fishing in the nearby Gore Creek, managing to land some surprisingly large trout, my wife loved the Vail Village art galleries. all in all, we had a very enjoyable stay.

Great Place and Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful full week at this location. Weather was great, accommodations were great too. Nice big kitchen, well stocked with everything you will need for cooking at home. Comfortable beds. Close to Vail Village, shopping and nights of great concerts. If you don't want to drive, the bus stop is just a short walk and takes you any where in the Vail area free. We enjoyed short day trips to Frisco, Silverstone, Avon, Breckenridge and of course to the Coors brewery in Golden. Overall, we had a great time here.
