Overview

Vail House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Located just minutes from Vail Village, you will find La Casa Vista Vail, our 2500 square foot, custom decorated residence is the perfect place to start all of all of your Vail adventures. Live the life of luxury as you enjoy a glass of wine by the fireplace and savor the stunning views! Overlooking the Vail Golf Course, La Casa Vista Vail is a lovely, three-story duplex decorated in warm, woodsy tones accented with stone floors and vaulted ceilings in every room. We are located on a quiet cul-de-sac and have an enclosed garage with additional parking for up to three cars.

The kitchen is finished in gourmet style with custom cabinetry, huge granite countertops, three ovens and a trash compactor. We keep the cupboards fully stocked with staples such as flour and sugar so you won't have to spend extra time or money purchasing small quantities of items you need. We also have a full-sized washer and dryer. The dining area has a large table with seating for eight along with an additional breakfast bar area. You will revel in the panoramic views on three sides, from the Gore Range, the Golf Course, and Gold Peak at Vail while enjoying your meal!

The living area is furnished with two large seating arrangements. All furniture was replaced this summer! The second arrangement focuses on the large fireplace, a perfect place to warm up and enjoy a hot drink after a hard day on the slopes or to read a book after a day hiking in the hills. Each room has a flat-screen TV, and there's DVD players in the living and master.

We also offer FREE high-speed wireless internet access, and SONOS. The house also has air conditioning in each bedroom.

The large deck is equipped with an six-person spa and a gas grill. With stunning views (and starry nights!) you might be tempted to spend all of your time in the invigorating bubbles as you sip on your glass of sparkling champagne!

The master suite has a king bed and a cozy sitting/reading room with cable TV. The adjoining Master bath is fully appointed with double sinks and a spacious shower with two showerheads. The second and third bedrooms, along with a loft are on the third level. Both are furnished with queen sized beds and the loft has two twins. These share one and a half baths.

About Carolyn Pope

Hi! We're the Popes. We lived in Vail from 2000 until recently. Steve was the publisher of the Vail Daily. He's been involved all over town, from the Chamber of Commerce to Bravo! Vail Music Festival and more. I've been a ski instructor for over 20 years, and am a flight attendant for a major carrier. For several years I covered the non-profits and social scene for The Vail Daily. In other words, we KNOW Vail and what's going on!

Carolyn Pope purchased this house in 1999

Why Carolyn Pope chose Vail

If you want all the comforts of an elegant home, this your spot. It is truly our second home, and we are very happy to share it with you. Furnished with high end pieces and lovely artwork (the best art is the view from the living area), you will cherish your memories here!

What makes this house unique

La Casa Vista Vail is a home; not a tacky rental property with tacky rental furnishings. The kitchen is fully equipped with top end appliances and cookware. The private spa on the deck is ready for your to soak! the views are spectacular; golf course and water falls. During the winter, sit in the hot tub and watch the fireworks down the valley in Gold Peak. The living area is very spacious - two full areas for you and your friends. It's home.

Beautiful home, wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening up your home to my family, friends and I! The spacious home fit all of us along with our 2 dogs very comfortably. The hot tub and grill on the back deck had amazing views of the mountains! Overall, it was a wonderful weekend and we hope to visit again soon!

Wonderful family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully maintained and perfect for a family vacation! We enjoyed New Years Eve watching fireworks from the deck and enjoyed making meals and family time in the den. The kids went sledding on the hill in front of the house and had a great time. We even enjoyed the somewhat lengthy walk back and forth to the bus stop - Caroline's tip about getting off at the Aspen Lane stop when returning from Vail was greatly appreciated! We will be back!

Relaxation & Awe amidst late spring waterfalls, flitting hummingbirds & bursting green of the Aspens

  • 5 of 5

The accomodations were comfortable and well appointed with fully supplied kitchen, bathrooms & bedroom linens. The views from the deck were breathtaking from east to west. The hot tub gave us the opportunity to gaze at star filled skys. The outdoor grill kept us outside to be entertained by non-stop flitting of hummingbirds & magpies. The beds were like sleeping in one's own bed without the stresses and worries. The decor was warm & cozy. The Pope's were very flexible & attentive to our comfort. The roominess of the public rooms kept the 5 of us from getting impatient with each other. The spice cabinet is fully stocked. The cooking implements are well supplied. All of the appliances are high quality and worked trouble-free. The large dining table made our meals a warm experience, especially with the views out the windows facing the mountains. The accomodations felt like we were staying with welcoming family. The laundry was helpful. We would enjoy staying anytime of the year in such a well cared for and finely appointed home.

Roomy House, Close to Vail Village

  • 4 of 5

Pros: House was roomy, large family room, table and bar area for seating (probably nine or 10 total), good layout for managing ski equipment, boots and snow cleanup at the end of a ski day. Liked that the kitchen was equipped with staples and numerous dishes and baking pans and utensils. The master bedroom had been fully remodeled and the bathroom and master bedroom furnishings were great.

Cons: Finding the house on your first visit is not easy. The address is not clearly marked and the driveways are extremely difficult to locate if snow is on the ground. The house is at the top of a hill so you need to make sure that your car / SUV has snow tires during the winter time or you will never make it to the top of the hill. The walk to / from the bus stop is about a 1/4 to a 1/2 mile and at the end of a long ski day, walking uphill to the house can be difficult--especially if hauling equipment. The furniture in the family room is dated and worn and probably on the verge of needing an update. Although the kitchen was supposed to have been recently updated -- there were some items that did not appear to have been updated--older model oven and dishwasher. Countertops were granite and nice and the microwave was new. Our coffee maker did not work at all. The owner had a friend drop by a replacement and it did not work so we had to purchase pods for a pod machine--which wasn't the favorite of our coffee drinkers, but we survived.

Just a few other items to note: The house has two and a half baths. So only two showers, but three toilets. The master bathroom is open to the master bedroom -- there's a separate room / door to the toilet area, but the sink area is open to the master bedroom and the shower has a glass door. So privacy can be an issue. There are three bedrooms with doors -- the master is downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. The master has a king bed and the two additional bedrooms have queens. There is a loft area with two twin beds -- really only for children as the ceiling is slanted and there is very little room to move or to store clothing, etc. All those staying in the two bedrooms and the loft area have to share a bathroom or use the master bathroom, which again does not have a privacy door.

All in all, the house worked for our family and we had a nice time. The views out the windows at night are lovely and the house is equipped with everything, for the most part, that you need in the kitchen or throughout the house.

Ski Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and a baby in our party and found the site to be more than adequate room. Very comfortable, clean, and stocked (kitchen and baths) in a well desiged layout that provides a plethora of resources close by: shuttle to Vail Village, Nordic ski area, snowshoe and hiking trail. Hot tub is a great accessory with a wonderful view of Golden Peak (fireworks on New Year's Eve were in clear site). Only suggestion would to be sure that all vaporizers/humidifers are working as we could only get one of the 4 on the property to operate. Highly recommended property!
