If you've yet to be completely enamored with Durango; it only takes once! Cody and I fell in love with Durango mountain our first March visit; purchasing a few months later. The refreshing mountain climate and charming down-town genuinely offer year-round fun for everyone. Our young daughter reminds us weekly that she wants to go to Durango for horseback riding, hiking, skiing or dance class at Bella's. We enjoy the mountain as a gathering place for family, and an escape from Costa Rica's heat. CR's beaches are stunning for vacations, ha ha; yet quite sweltering while building vacation homes. Costa Rica's heat makes one want to stay immobile on a beach blanket or wet in the ocean; whereas the refreshing mountain climate inspires family activity! Due to living in a tiny, rural coastal area with limited amenities; we truly appreciate Durango's down-town area too: the arts, great eats, festivals, churches, parks, charming shops, the 'choo choo'! On the mountain we love: horses, rock hopping streams, Stunning hiking vistas, breathtaking lakes, fishing, the scent of the trees, the surprise snow in early May, looking out at the mountains and feeling like time has stopped. Our hearts are torn between the tropical beauty and responsibility of loyal building employees in Costa Rica; and the many opportunities that Durango offers for raising children. While we dream about moving to Durango in the next few years; we hope that guests will thoroughly enjoy our home. Time spent in the open, refreshing space of mountain, is great for the soul, the smile and family relationships!
Upstairs Views. Downstairs Views. Balcony and Patio. Corner Unit Views. The Waterfall next to us. Exterior Entrance without Hallways. Oversize Jacuzzi Tub for together time. Easy Walk to Main Lifts and Bunny Slope Tunnel. Stroll to morning Starbucks in the Plaza, Refreshing Mountain Temperatures in Summer, Views of the Aspens Turning Color in Fall! So close to sooooo many lakes and Streams for hiking, drawing and pick-nicks. Perfectly easy to drive down-town as often as we like to enjoy the Historic district and arts. Just as easy to take a fall or summer adventure day to Silverton or Ouray.
Lovingly Upgraded; we have spent many vacations on remodel projects, and hired a few out. Built in the early 70's, East Rim are one of few resort buildings that feel homey (only 8 units) and have exterior entrances (Hubby takes issue with condo hallways, ha ha). Our building is extra special as it is set into the cliff-side beside the waterfall, and down below the street level. Inside we opted for a mix of amber Bruce distressed hardwood flooring, slate and travertine. In addition to flooring and the kitchen, all lighting, fixtures and design elements were hand picked. We strive to care for our vacation rentals as if they were our full-time residence. We hope when guests head home; you'll remember your inside ambiance as much as the fun on the mountain.
