James Wilsford purchased this condo in 2009
We like Angel Fire because we wanted somewhere cool in the summer and close to snow skiing.
This unit, Snow Fire 107-B @ 8600 ft. elevation, is never hot and the unit has three exterior doors with no stairs or steps, 2 blocks from the ski lift.
Our family stayed at the condo for a few days over Christmas Break. Pros: Close to the slopes, easy to get into, good parking, heated ski storage, comfortable besides the issues noted below, and slept 2 adults and 3 children very comfortable.
Cons: Condo smelled like gas upon entry. Instead of calling 911 *in hindsight we should have evacuated the condo - it was THAT bad* we called the management company. They acknowledged the smell and said they were in earlier in the day and the fireplace pilot light went out and that we should just open doors. I was quite surprised as I couldn't figure out if this was all it took to clear the air then why didn't the property management company do this, after all they are paid right? The smell was VERY strong. We couldn't use the fireplace because the smell would return if we did (note the fireplace was on when we arrived). Next, the water, our welcome book explained that the water may smell like rotten eggs at first so we needed to run it for 5 minutes. The reality - is that it STUNK the whole condo up and you had to run the water for 20-25 minutes before the smell in the water went away. We had to purchase jugs of water as I couldn't bring myself to have my family drink water that smelled like rotten eggs. Fortunately, after performing this maintenance water didn't smell as bad. Again, not sure why the property management company who is paid to manage the property couldn't have completed this task. We also had an issue with the wireless. Dealing with these issues did require us to call the management company. It seems as if there are a couple of brothers, one was very helpful but the other was rude, arrogant, and condescending. The only other issue I had was the quality of the linens. I don't have many requirements, but the linens were extremely thin and had little balls of lint stuck everywhere (I took pictures.). I would recommend bringing your own sheets for the beds. Overall, I know we will return to Angel Fire ski area and rent a condo again but I will certainly make every effort it to rent one managed by a different company.
This is a very nice, clean condo with a great location. Unit is very convenient to all Angel Fire has to offer; ski lifts, shopping, dining, hiking trails, golf and tennis...
Easy parking and ground floor access is perfect. It's hard enough traveling from sea level to 8600 feet and trying to get around without having to climb up 2 or 3 flights of stairs everytime you need to run an errand or go out for the next adventure.
This was our second stay at this unit and I wish we were still there!
This condo has a lot of potential, unfortunately, it is not kept very clean. Cobwebs, dirt, and dog hair were abundant. And when we let the leasing company know about the issues, we were told the owner had just been there with their dogs which was why there was dog hair. And dirt? Couldn't be, because he had personally watched them clean the floors. They did not offer an I'm sorry, nothing but putting the blame else where.
Upon my return, I emailed the owner to let them know that their condo was dirty and that their leasing company was essentially blaming them. I also let them know that my trip was designed for my mother who has stage IV lung cancer and wanted to go back to the mountains which held fond memories. Now, the memory is marred by the less than cleanly living conditions that I unknowingly arranged for her.
I copied both the leasing company and the owner on my email. Neither responded. Not an "I'm sorry" or "we will check into it". Nothing.
I would not recommend this condo based on 1) the dirt and dog hair, 2) owner's lack of response/ leasing company's defensive "the owner did it" attitude, and 3) complete disregard for customers.
