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 West Vail

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 place to stay in Vail, Colorado

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property with 3 other couple friends. We enjoyed the house very much. The kitchen and dining room was large enough for us to cook big breakfasts and sit around the table. This home is very comfortable. While there were only 8 of us, this house can accommodate more people. The WiFi works well and that was important to our group. The location is great! Although there was road construction at the time of our stay we were very close to all the places we wanted to go. Would stay again!

Very nice and comfortable home conveniently located within minutes of all of the Vail attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and comfortable home conveniently located within minutes of all the Vail attractions. Definitely recommended for families and groups.

On a side note to prospective guests. The guest book is not an appropriate place to vent your random thoughts. Be respectful and discreet. Just my opinion.

Fantastic reunion ski weekend with friends!

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic. Maura was very helpful is arranging the reservation and answering questions along the way. We had plenty of rooms and beds for everyone to enjoy. The kitchen was good, the deck and hot tub were fantastic. Its about as big a house as you can find that close to the mountain for this pretty reasonable price. I'd definitely stay here again!

Only potential concern/negative: The 3 story duplex is up a hill in a neighborhood about a mile from Lionshead, and it might have been difficult to drive up the hill if they had gotten tons of snow, but luckily they only got a couple/few inches.

Great Home for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Maura's home was wonderful for our party of 12! We all flew into Vail to surprise my husband for his 40th birthday party and also attend the Vail Big Beers event. It was great to be so close to Cascade, where the event took place. We also loved having dinner in the home, where we were able to fit everyone around the table. Hanging out in the living room with a fire was the best. The bedroom configuration was perfect for our group and the garage and mudroom were great for all of our gear. The heated driveway was great for the winter as well. Maura was very quick to communicate and overall it was a wonderful stay! Oh, and hot tub was perfect after a day on the slopes. Thanks so much!
