About Heather Kehoe
This is a family-run business. Thea Rumford and daughter, Heather Kehoe, manage this beautiful mountain home.The photo is of Heather and Thea on the deck of the Chalet in the summertime.

They have raised their children to grow up with a tremendous appreciation for the alpine lifestyle. They take great joy in now seeing their grandchildren follow in the ski tracks of their parents. Thea says, 'The character of Chalet du Soleil is incomparable and is sure to please.' The Rumfords also take pride in upgrading and maintaining their beautiful home each year.

Perfect home for family vacation
This was our second year for a family summer vacation at Chalet du Soleil and we had another wonderful time. The house is spacious and comfortable and feels like home. It was perfect for our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 children). It had everything we could possibly need, including a pack-n-play for the newest member of our family. The location is ideal so we were able to walk everywhere. Heather is always so pleasant and helpful and we have enjoyed working with her. We plan to return next summer.
Loved having you and your family return to Vail this summer! You are always welcome at Chalet du Soleil!
Enjoyed our stay
Overall we were very happy with our stay here. The home is charming and very comfortable. We had one minor issue with a broken showerhead and when we contacted Heather it was taken care of (actually replaced) promptly. Communications with the owner were timely and responsive. Picturesque setting in a really lovey neighborhood. I would clarify for guests the fact that it is 100 yard walk to the slopes, not ski-in ski-out.
Thank you for your review of our lovely Chalet and it's surroundings. We are glad you were able to enjoy our special home while skiing in Vail.
Great location and very comfortable property
We were a group of avid skiers looking for a comfortable and easy access property. The property is approximately 150 yards walk to the ski slopes. The house was very comfortable and the living area with TV was utilized extensively. The appliances were all updated and we used the grill to make brats one day after skiing. The house is older but very clean and the bathrooms had been updated. Heather was very responsive and accommodating. Would definitely rent again.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at the Chalet! Thank you for your thoughtful comments. It means a lot to us to hear your appreciation for our charming historic home with it's modern touches. We hope to see you again next ski season!
House, location, hosts great
We enjoyed having you and your family at the Chalet. We hope you'll return again next year.
Excellent, charming and very comfortable.
Great hosts, great location, very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much. I highly recommend it.
Thank you for this lovely review. We enjoyed having you at the Chalet and would welcome you and your family back anytime. If you happen to have the fox photo you took while at the Chalet, I would love a copy to include on our listing!
Enjoyed our family ski trip
We rented and shared this lovely home with my sister and her family. There was plenty of room for all 10 of us. We enjoyed being able to come and go without having to get in our car. We even skied home for lunch most days. In addition, my son left his wallet under a bed upstairs and Heather went and found it and mailed it to us. Thank you Heather, we look forward to coming back to Chalet du Soleil.
