Excellent Choice in Vail
Submitted: January 18, 2012
Stayed: January 2012
I stayed at this unit over a long weekend in January 2012. The unit is perfectly located. It is just at the edge of the main village, right across from the Sonnenalp and the Four Seasons, two of the pre-eminent resorts in Vail. It is under a 5 minute walk to the Vista Bahn (main lift) and you can do it in boots easily. The building is great and has a hot tub / pool in the back. There is parking below the building and an attendant at the front desk to help with any questions. The unit itself is good and provides value for the price. It is very clean and servicable, but not overly luxurious. The owner has another property in Beaver Creek that is fancier, and I believe he is doing work this summer to update the Vail property, which will make it truly spectacular. That being said, the place was excellent, and exactly how it is represented in pictures. Completely clean, comfortable and user friendly. Given the astronomical prices for other units in Vail Village (and even in the same building), this unit was great. Only issue as it currently stands is lack of a washer/dryer, but there is one downstairs, and I believe the owner is putting one in the unit as part of the remodel.
Also, the owner was extremely easy to deal with. Everything is automated from the online signup form at to the electronic lock on the front door of the condo. When I called the owner to ask a few questions he was attentive and answered everything quickly, concisely and honestly. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with.
My group was a group of 4 guys in their early 30s looking for some R&R and skiing for the weekend while our wives were away with each other on a separate spa trip. The unit was great for us. It would also be perfect for a family and I would certainly bring my wife and daughter to this unit next time I'm in Vail with them. I'd say its excellent for a group of friends or for a family under 6 people.
I'm looking forward to hopefully coming back to this unit next year!
