About Mimi Wahlmann

I lived in Vail for two ski seasons in the late 80's early 90's right out of college and fell in love with the Rocky Mountains. I love to ski and grew up skiing in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. It was a dream come true to ski powder in Colorado. Life and jobs took me away and I currently live in Chicago, IL for the last 15 years. I try to ski every season but fell in love with summer in Colorado almost more. I love to decorate and I appreciate having what you need in a rental. This condo is my small pleasure.

Mimi Wahlmann purchased this condo in 2003

Why Mimi Wahlmann chose Northwest Colorado

In 2003 I had an opportunity to buy a property, due to some insurance money and a need to reinvest from a sold property. I searched 19 properties all over the Vail Valley and found this one which was in need of some TLC I fixed her up over the last 5 years and I am ready to retire in day. I hope you can appreciate the condo as much as I do. It is my only second home and I cherish it.

What makes this condo unique

I hope that you enjoy the condo and all the incredible amenities such as the close proximity to the hot tubs and the unit being on the ground floor. These were features I found important. The staff is excellent and there are great restaurants in Avon and Edwards, that are not Vail prices. I have also upgraded all the appliances to energy star rated products and received recognition from Holy Cross Energy for this.

Convenient to Beaver Creek, comfortable, roomy

  • 4 of 5

The condo has obviously had some updating, but could use a fresh coat of paint on the trim, etc. Also, a handyman should tighten the toilet in main bathroom and look at the one pendant light in the kitchen. Something is wrong with that outlet.

Beds are very comfortable, showers great! Has everything you may need in kitchen. Mimmi was very responsive to any questions and with all information needed for check in.

Be sure to take not that they don't provide soap, etc. in bathrooms, so bring your own.

Overall a great stay!!

Again and again

  • 5 of 5

More than ten years ago we've discovered Colorado for skiing and decided everv year again to come from Germany to the Vail- and Breck-area to spend our winter-holidays here. In 2009 we've discovered Mimis apartment in Avon and this year we've been there for the fifth time. Year after year we realized the improvements Mimi made in the apartment but also the other improvements like shuttle service, new gondola ... So there's no doubt: If we'll return to Avon we definitely will stay in Mimis apartment! Thank you Mimi: Thea&Bernd+Silvia&Volker

Cozy Condo- Perfect for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 3 days and we absolutely loved it. The property was as described, clean, well stocked and well maintained. There was a lake and a park near by and our kids enjoyed playing there. The Fall scenery around the home was beautiful. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone.

Few minor issues were wi-fi was very slow , since we arrived very late in the night (couldn't call the owner/manager), locating the unit was difficult, the map could be a little more detailed or explanatory.

Convenient and clean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. There is a swimming pool out the patio door and a lake out the front door with a swimming beach. The bike path was just a few yards away and we used it frequently. The condo is situated close to several hiking areas that provided challenging hikes and easy ones on recovery days. There is grocery store and several good eats nearby as well. We plan to visit again soon.

And as a bonus, the owner was super pleasant to deal with which made the process stress-free!
