Perfect spot for two families!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! Everything was as advertised (if not better). We had two families with elementary school aged kids, and there was plenty of room. The kitchen was very well stocked (and we did quite a bit of cooking). With young kids, the walk to the lift was doable, but the shuttle was even easier-it was always there within 5 minutes of calling. There was plenty of too to spread out, and it was a very comfortable home (it really felt like a home, and not a vacation rental). The conditions were great, and we skied 7 days in a row. We would go back and stay in the same spot in a heartbeat.

Perfect Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for our vacation. We had three couples and one baby on the trip. Crib and high chair was provided. The kitchen was fully stocked (blender, crockpot, pots and pans, baking sheets, cutting boards, etc) which was much appreciated. Beautiful home with very high end furnishings. It was a quick walk to the Arrowbahn lift and a short drive to ski school in Beaver Creek. Loved the boot and glove dryer. Would absolutely recommend this property.

Great condo but had difficulties with the refund of our deposit

  • 4 of 5

Great condo but had difficulties with the refund of our deposit. Three weeks prior to our stay, I told her we would have 6 adults for 5 nights and only 4 for all 7 nights. I told her I would send the full deposit as if all adults stayed for all seven nights and that ‘we can settle up later when the deposit is returned.’ So, I was expecting a return of my deposit and excess prepaid fees. The lease agreement indicates that the deposit would be returned within 14 days of our departure. We did not receive our deposit back after the 14 days and I had to send Barbara two or three emails requesting the deposit. I finally had to call her to get her to return the deposit. We received most of our deposit back a month after our departure. But, instead of getting the the full deposit and extra fees back, we received only a portion of our deposit and none of the extra fees. Another issue is that we did not receive any ‘check in’ instructions. We stopped at the main gate to the complex and they told us to go to the reception center at Beaver Creek, a few miles down the road. We did so and were told they did not manage the property. We returned to the main gate and the security staff helped us get into the condo.

Again, a great condo that is nicely situated. Still hoping for the return of the extra fees.

Owner's Response: Jim stayed at our vacation property March 29th through April 5th, 2014. As the Director of Children's Ministries at a large church, immediately after his departure, I was focused on putting together a large children's Easter egg hunt and brunch which was held on Easter Sunday, April 20th. I then vacationed with my family for a week during our Spring break. I returned the full deposit of $500 to Jim on May 6th after returning and settling back in and have a paypal record verifying this. My apologies to Jim for the late deposit refund. I will look into former emails and our agreement regarding the credit he says he should have received as his review is the first I have heard about it.

Wonderful Ski Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property with a group of 9. Two families with 4 adults and 5 kids. We had an absolutely amazing time! The location was perfect!! First of all the property was immaculate and was exactly as advertised. We had everything we could have possibly needed. We enjoyed cooking in the fully supplied kitchen and the kids loved having their own retreat on the bottom floor. The Arrow Bahn ski lift is exactly a 4 minute walk from the condo. We had several beginner skiers in our group who needed to be transported to ski school at Beaver Creek but this was not that difficult. It was a short 15 minute drive to the center of Beaver Creek Village. We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub after skiing. The condo has what amounts to two full size master bedrooms making it ideal for two families. The owner was extremely helpful in answering questions and concerns and we would definitely recommend staying at this property. We would love to stay here again sometime!

Great Spring Break 2012

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for 2 families with kids! The top floor had all the adult bedrooms and the basement was great for the kids with their own TV and game cube. The kitchen was well stocked with most any appliance or gadget you would need. The boot and glove dryer was great too. this was our second year in a row to stay in the Arrowhead community and we would defnitely stay here again if we come back to Beaver Creek .
