On-Mountain Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sofabed, 1 Spa-style Bathroom (Sleeps 1-4)
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. All new appliances. 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 recently upgraded to a 'spa room' 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 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 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 Krista Molloy
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!'
Krista Molloy purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Krista Molloy chose Durango
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!

This is one of the most organized and well stocked places we have ever stayed. The condo is decorated beautifully and there was not one little detail left undone. From Q-tips, sunscreen, soap and shampoo and Kleenex in the bathroom to post cards and goodies in the kitchen. Every detail was amazing! We felt right at home. We would definitely stay here again without question.
Tonya, thank you so much! We love to hear that all the "extra touches" are appreciated. We are glad you had a wonderful trip and we look forward to your joining us again!
The property was absolutely breathtaking. The owners are very willing to help you with everything
100% fantastic, this place is breathtaking. The owners are very respectful, and will help you with anything you need. If you need internet, it's got it. If you have children, it's great for the kids as well, DirecTV, PlayStation 2, DVD player, two TVs, very comfortable beds, and I could go on and on and on.
David, I am so glad that your family vacation was a blast! Also glad that you got to play in some fresh snow and enjoy everything this beautiful area has to offer. We hope that you can join us again and make some more great family memories!
Everything I needed.
The basics first. Easy to find. Condo was warm. Never felt cold. Good water pressure in the shower and plenty of hot water. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen had everything I needed. Couch was relaxing to watch some tv to wind down. Durango is beautiful. I was skiing and the condo was a few min drive to Purgatory. Condo is updated and felt like they enjoy help making me feel at home. Krista responded to my questions fast. The instructions were thorough. Probably the nicest place I have stayed, so far. Robby from St Louis.
Hi Robby - What a wonderful review! We do take great pride in making the condo as comfortable as possible and it is really nice when he hear that our efforts are appreciated. We are so glad you enjoyed it!
One of the best places I've ever stayed!!
From the moment we booked the condo until we left to head home, this was an experience that ALL vacations should be. The communication from John who manages the property to Krista the owner was outstanding. We knew exactly where it was, how to get in, what to do upon check out, etc. The condo itself was beyond outstanding!! They have thought of EVERYTHING! It is very quiet, stays warm, has plenty of space....even have welcome to the condo snacks for you. It was awesome. We will FOR SURE be back more than once.
Just a couple of pointers, I would take stuff for breakfast and dinner...cook in the condo. Reason is that there is stuff at Purgatory and there is a pizza/wing place right up the road, but not a lot of breakfast/lunch places. The condo has a nice sized fridge and even koozies for your beer, or wine glasses for your vino, so there is plenty of space for food and beverages. If you can think of a "hey do I need to take" utensil, the answer is no. They have everything!
The bed slept like a cloud...that is the only way to describe it. They even have robes in the closet for you. Books, DirecTv, games....you will not find a better value at all in Colorado anywhere.
Thank you, Chris! It is such a pleasure to know that the details are appreciated. We love to travel ourselves so we also appreciate the "little touches" that can make a big difference. We look forward to hosting you again!
Condo was well stocked, clean, and w/in minutes of Purgatory Ski Resort in a beautiful setting. Owners & property mgrs stayed in touch to make sure everything was OK. Although this has been a lean winter for snow we arrived to 17 in w/another 6 in during the week. Couldn’t have timed it any better.
So happy that "Mother Nature" cooperated with the snow for your trip! Thank you so much for staying with us and we hope to see you again!
A Winter Wonderland
Thank you Krista for a place we could call home. Your place was lacking NOTHING!!! Well thought out check-in and check-out instructions. Easy-Peasy!!!
Your condo well exceeded our expectations. From snow shovels to bath robes. The fireplace was the clencher. Warm and cozy atmosphere. Was afraid there wouldn't be any snow as we approached Durango but 15 min up the highway there it was in full snow storm Jaxon. Not to worry though, we followed a snow plow right to the entrance of Silverpick. The highways were well groomed through out our stay. Plenty to do from Historic downtown Durango to HoneyVille Meadery and let's not forget Silverton ... The most quaint little town. We did a horse drawn sleigh ride at the base of Purgatory Ski Resort and the Durango to Cascade Canyon Narrow Gauge Train ride. BEAUTIFUL!!! The whole experience a MUST DO OVER!!!!
