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.

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

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.

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.

LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5
Arrived to a clean house with immaculate maintenance and checking out instructions - everything was in working condition and the hot-tub was excellent. Manager was always available and prompt for help on the phone. Surroundings are gorgeous, safe and close to everything. Excellent view from the patio! Loved our stay and will stay here again if I came back :)

Garage parking can seem tricky on day one because of a tight space - but then you get used to it . Laundry / Dryer worked well too.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
I rented the Larkspur Valley View home for a long weekend with friends and it was perfect: comfortable and convenient. There were 4 of us so the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were ideal (but there was space for more people if necessary). We spent most of our time on the front deck looking out at the mountains and on the back deck grilling dinner or sitting in the hot tub. The home had all of the amenities we wanted and Billy the owner was responsive and considerate. Overall a great stay and I would definitely rent it again!

VAIL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, along with our two dogs, Angel and Pablo, spent a fantastic week in this beautiful home, and we were delighted with the everything about the place. We took trips into Vail and Rocky Mountain Park, hiked some of the many trails, spent time at the dog park, and had a great time. The home is very comfortable and clean, and everything was there to make our stay comfortable. We'll be back!

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our stay at the west vail mountain home. The owner provides you with a detailed binder outlining very reasonable expectations regarding your stay. It also served as a troubleshooting guide should you encounter any problems during your stay. We never encountered any. The unit was in great shape and in a great location. We took both of our dogs and they enjoyed the dog park that was within walking distance of the home. Transportation was never an issue with a shuttle station located within a block of the home. Although parking appears to be difficult, the heated driveway provided plenty of space even when occupied with three SUVs. The community was very friendly and again the location provided us with easy access to everything the beautiful city of Vail had to offer. Hope to make this a yearly vacation.

SUNNY, SPACIOUS, WITH HEATED DRIVE AND HOT TUB!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a month. The master bedroom gets lots of sun. The other bedroom is plenty comfortable and importantly gave us plenty of space for two couples. The condo is well supplied and Billy works hard to keep it in great order. The shuttle is a little more than a block away but it made getting to and from town easy. The heated drive is super convenient. We especially enjoyed the hot tub on the porch!

Parking is a little complicated but just having reserved parking is a luxury. With helpful emails and coordinating with the guests in other condos it went well. We would strongly recommend this condo to anyone planning a stay in Vail and hope to stay there again.

If you are interested in swing dance lessons Billy is a great teacher!

GREAT MOUNTAIN HOME

  • 4 of 5
We attended a wedding at the Donovan Pavillion. The location was very handy to the venue. Safeway/Vons/Starbucks closeby. The price was great for the location and the space. The property was clean and the pictures accurately described the home. Billy was available whenever we called with any questions or concerns.
