About Leslie Swims

My husband and I live in Franklin, TN. We co-own this condo with my sister and her husband, who live in Minnetista, Minnesota. I grew up going to Colorado every year with my family and have enjoyed getting back into this tradition since buying our condo.

Leslie Swims purchased this condo in 2005

Why Leslie Swims chose Winter Park Area

We bought this condo to enable my mother to spend more time in the Winter Park area during her retirement. Her sister lives outside of town and they love to hike, bike, and ski together. We wanted a place large enough for our family to all be able to stay at one time.

What makes this condo unique

You will find our place feels like a home, not a rental. It is comfortable and well stocked with anything you may need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Jacob: Thanks so much for your very nice note -- and for returning my damage deposit. I meant to write in your guest book but we got a little hectic when we were leaving Friday. We all loved your condo! It really worked out well for all of us and it certainly was spacious and comfortable! Jamie & Courtney got their condo painted and are still there working on the bathrooms.

Whenever we have an overflow of guests we'd love to rent your unit again! Thanks for everything and I know you're enjoying your stay in Winter Park. (definitely plenty of snow!!!)

All the best to you both....

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great for our family vacation. We had (6) adults and fit comfortably. It was nice having (3) full bathrooms and a washer / dryer in the unit. The kitchen was well stocked and made for easy meal preparations. The shuttle stop at the condo drive was very convenient. Shuttle pick ups at Winter Park ski area are a bit of a walk so we rented a locker at The Balcony House and wore street shoes to and from the mountain.

well maintained

  • 3 of 5

Loved the condo - wish it had a hot tub and was right on the mountain though. The bus line was a little confusing but once we figured it out all was good. The condo is well stocked - the kitchen was awesome - had absolutely EVERYTHING that we needed! Had a lot of "extras" for the kids (movies, games, coloring, etc.) Would give it a higher "star" rating if it had a hub tub and was right on the mountain.
