Overview

Durango Condo Rental Photos and Description

On-Mountain Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sofabed, 1 Spa-style Bathroom (Sleeps 1-4)

We pay your booking fees for stays of 7 nights or longer! That's right! We will refund 100% of your booking fee if you book and stay at least 7 nights.

Gorgeous on-mountain condo that is fully updated and well maintained. Brand new 'spa bathroom' featuring river rock and waterfall shower. Chef's kitchen that is modern, high-end and amazingly well-equipped. You won't find a better deal for a condo of this quality and location no matter how hard you look!

Breathtaking San Juan mountain views from every window - the best views in Silverpick Village! A true Colorado experience.

This one bedroom unit has been fully renovated and luxuriously upgraded. It sleeps up to four people and is located on the mountain, about half a mile south of Purgatory Resort, nestled in a mature aspen grove at an elevation of almost 8800 feet. It is only a two-minute drive to resort base area. It is the perfect location for an active get-away, a relaxing break or a romantic escape. The condo features breathtaking views of the San Juan Mountains from the living room, dining room, bedroom and deck.

The living room is inviting and decorated in an updated “Colorado Mountain Style” … overstuffed seating, earthy colors, with natural wood and stone elements. The 10-foot wide glass door wall opens to a large private deck with a seating area to enjoy the fresh mountain air and amazing views. Deer and elk sometimes graze within a few dozen feet of the deck. Hummingbirds provide summertime entertainment as they buzz around enjoying the wildflowers.

The interior dining area features seating for four at a lodge-style table. There is also an outdoor courtyard patio dining area that can be used during the warmer months.

We often receive compliments from our guests regarding the impressive chef-inspired kitchen. From the new high end appliances, new cabinets and quartz counter tops to the ultra high quality Italian-made pots and pans, new dishes, utensils and small appliances, you’ll be all set to create a gourmet meal. If cooking on vacation is not your thing, no worries, as there is a great on-site restaurant and several others within a one mile radius of the condo.

You’ll appreciate the fully renovated bathroom with double vanity and featuring Kohler fixtures. Hair dryer, quality linens, guest robes and spa amenities (shampoo, soaps, lotion, sunscreen, etc.) are all included. The bathroom was upgraded to a 'spa room' in 2014 featuring a river rock and waterfall shower. The renovation includes custom tile, new cabinetry, high dual vanities and Kohler HydroRail shower system with super high-end finishes. It just may be the nicest place you have ever showered!

After a day on the mountain or enjoying the great outdoors, relax in front of the stone fireplace (wood included!) or soak in the hot tub, just steps away from the front door. The cozy sofa will invite you to unwind in front of the new 46-inch HD flat screen TV with premium satellite channels. There is also an extensive DVD library with new release and classic movies, a Sony PlayStation with assorted video games and a selection of books, magazines and 'old school' board games for your enjoyment.

When it is finally time to sleep, retire to the ultra-comfortable king-sized bed with top quality bedding and linens. The master bedroom was just redecorated with all new furnishings. Doze off watching the 32-inch HD flat screen TV/DVD. Bringing friends or family? There is also a queen-sized pull-out bed in the living room with a brand new top-of-the-line memory foam mattress.

Taking a working vacation or just need to check your e-mail? The condo is equipped with free wi-fi. Our wi-fi is secured to this unit only, not shared with other units.

GO GREEN! To help the environment, we have chosen to subscribe to sustainable 100% wind power electricity for the condo and we have converted lighting to efficient CFB's. In November of 2013 we added a high efficiency European-style heating system throughout the unit. All appliances are new and Energy Star rated. The condo has been painted with low VOC paint.

About The Owner

Krista and Gabor call Denver home but spend as much time as possible in Durango and the Austrian Alps. 'We love the mountain lifestyle and Durango has some of the best hiking and biking in the world .. the scenery and weather are amazing.' 'We hope that you'll enjoy this area and the condo as much as we do, and that you'll agree this is one of the most perfect spots in all Colorado!'

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Southwestern Colorado

We loved Durango from that first visit. We bought the property knowing that one day we wanted to retire in this area. It reminded Krista of Canada (where she was born) and reminded Gabor of Austria (where he had lived). The mountains in this area are very rugged and beautiful and the evergreen and aspen forests are amazingly green and lush. We bought the condo thinking winter would be when we would spend the most time there, but after visiting in spring, summer and fall, we discovered the other seasons are just as impressive. The 300+ days of sunshine each year was the final deciding factor ... we couldn't resist.

What makes this condo unique

This is a true 'home away from home' ... well-equipped, comfortable and completely modernized. The location - about half a mile from the ski resort - makes it close enough to feel like a Colorado mountain resort, but far enough away from the noise and congestion of the base area. In the summer, the location escapes the uncomfortable desert heat of the town of Durango, still only 20 to 25 minutes away (and the most beautiful 24 mile drive you can imagine!). The setting is pristine ... backed up against the Hermosa cliffs to the west, surrounded by mature aspen forests and breathtaking views of the San Juan mountains to the north and east. We bet you won't want your vacation to end!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your condo! It was really great! I loved that the kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to actually prepare and serve meals! Just super comfortable with everything we could ask for! The skiing was perfect and it was so nice to be so close to the area (as well as the hot tub!) Probably the best VRBO we've ever stayed in by far! We really appreciated the offer of a late check-out. We hope to be back soon!

Fantastic Condo...loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose this beautiful condo for our recent trip to the Durango area - this was our 1st trip to the Durango and we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. This amazing condo makes you feel at home the minute you open the door. The owners have spent a lot of time and money updating this unit - it is beautiful as well as functional. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need - including a selection of spices (don't normally see that in a rental) - the bathroom remodel is fantastic and loved the shower! Comfy bed and living area - much nicer than other places we have visited.

The San Juan Mountains are a great place for a vacation - so much to do and see...can't wait to go back.
