About Maura

Our family lived in Vail from 2004-2005 while my husband did a sports fellowship with the Steadman Hawkins clinic. At the end of the year, Vail was in all of our blood and we knew we couldn't say goodbye for good. We loved the home we lived in for the year - warm, spacious, removed from highway noise, on a quiet cul-de-sac backing up to national forest which was awesome for hikes in the summer and fall, and just 2 miles from Vail village. Fortunately, the owners agreed to sell the house to us! We now live in Texas but love getting back to Vail every chance we get - regardless of season!

Maura purchased this house in 2005

Why Maura chose Highland Meadows

Vail is the most amazing ski mountain in all of north america. We chose this house in particular because it backs up to national forest (great for hiking and snow shoeing), is close to a great park, and is high enough up the mountain that the noise and sight of I70 are not factors.

What makes this house unique

wonderful mountain views, hiking path right out back door, quiet cul-de-sac (no highway noise), roomy, two separate masters, media room, nice porch for outdoor dining and grilling, wood-burning fireplace, well-stocked kitchen, private hot tub, two miles from Vail village.

Wonderful Vail home with all amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to vail with another family for spring break. Had a fabulous time at this home and on the mountain. We were able to spread out and relax and enjoy ourselves and enjoyed the hot tub, deck and media rooms. Well equipped kitchen for cooking and great views. Will definitely return!

Great house for groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Maura’s home. It was the perfect set up for our group, very accessible to the mountain, and had everything we needed. Maura was also very accommodating and responsive when we had questions for her. We would definitely stay here again!

Great Mountain Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The house beat our expectations for our month long stay! The house is huge and the layout is amazing! We had plenty of space to spread out and loved the movie room downstairs. The location is amazing- you can hike up to eagles nest from the backyard or walk down he hill to the trail right to the villages! The views were unbeatable and you can watch the sunset right from the deck off the living room. The wood burning fireplace came in handy on chilly nights! All of the rooms were unique and decorated very tastefully. We loved this house and hope to be back!

Tale of Two Units: A and B. Not clear from the photo that you are getting Unit A, the lower unit.

  • 3 of 5

I was disappointed with not realizing that there are two rental units, an A and a B. The A unit is the one we rented, the lower structure (in white). I wish the owner had made this more obvious on the property page. The upper unit appears to be newer and better. The A unit which we rented is older and tired. The master screen was totally left inoperable, and the drain did not work in the master bath tub. I informed the owner/manager and after a few calls coordinated with the local handy man who came over and did absolutely nothing. Nice guy but useless. The good aspects of this unit is a great kitchen, well equipped and very well stocked (the best I have seen) and very good washer and dryer. Beds were fine, but bathrooms are very small but functional. The deck is old and tired and should not be walked on with bear feet.

Depending on the rental of the upper unit (unit b), the parking/driveway can be crowded and tough to negotiate. In our case, three SUVs were parked there, and it made getting in and out of our unit an issue.

While our stay was pleasant and the house satisfies our basic needs, I would not return to this unit A home. The price does not match the condition of the home. I would also make it very clear that it is unit A 9 (the lower white structure) that one is renting, and not the whole structure.

close to skiing, boarding, snow shoeing trails, snowmobiling and other fund winter activities. 1/2 mile from lovely city park (Donovan) with playground, basketball courts and playing fields. Just up the hill from Gore creek with gold water trout fishing. Great hiking all over Vail mountain, including a trail to the top of the Gondola right out our back door!
