About The Owner

I have enjoyed vacationing in Vail since 1970. Summer and winter - there is always

something to do and new places to explore.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1970

Why The Owner chose Vail

My parents purchased this condo because they loved Vail. They spent most summers and many winter

holidays here. Now, I am fortunate to have this condo for my family and friends.

What makes this condo unique

The unique feature of this condo is the location - central Vail, on the creek, with

mountain views. One can walk to everything in town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome(and hopefully welcome back) to our Vail condo. We hope you enjoyed your stay. Please send us your comments on your stay and the accommodations. We hope you are happy with the surroundings, but if there is anything we can do to improve things, we want to know.

Best regards,

Talisman Condo

  • 4 of 5

Myself and two friends enjoyed our visit.......with only one bedroom we were concerned with the day bed/trundle option for the two unlucky guys but they were comfortable and in a place that did not interfere with the living room and dining area. The place was roomy for 3 people and the location was perfect....a short 5 - 10 minute walk to the Vail Village gondola. It was also well stocked as we stayed in and cooked a few nights and had everything need to prepare and serve a meal. This is not always the case in rented units.

Mid Vail Village Condo

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay in the condo. Great location near the heart of mid-vail village. Great view of the mountain and Gore Creek right behind the condo. Well furnished, comfortable and laundry available downstairs. Only 5-8 minutes from the gondola. Two baths for 1BR was great. Owner was very responsive by e-mail and phone when needed.

Awesome ski week!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying in this great condo! We had an awesome week! The location is perfect! The condo has everything you could possibly need. It is very well decorated and extremely comfortable. The view of Gore Creek and the ski mountain is incredible. My husband and I were there with two of our sons ages 19 and 24. The living room, kitchen, and bedroom are all very spacious. There is lots of closet and drawer space. I loved being able to unpack everything. Having two bathrooms was great for the four of us. The condo is located on the main floor as you come into the building. It has a great ski storage area right next to the door of the condo. We actually used this to store our ski cases. Our family (mainly me) decided that we would rent a locker for our skis and boots right at the base of the Gondola. That is because I am a little wimpy about walking in my ski boots and carrying my skis. The walk from the condo to the Gondola in my regular shoes was great! The parking garage and the laundry room are very conveniently located. I highly recommend this condo. I hope we have an opportunity to return.

Great Condo, great location, great view

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good time at the Condo. It is a confortable and beautifull place. The view is great. It has a nice temperature and it is right in the middle of Vail Village. Only a few steps away from the slopes. The owner was very nice to me at all times.

Super convenient with one small problem

  • 4 of 5

This location was super convenient in center of Vail Village about 300 yards from gondola lift. Condo was spacious for 4 people w/comfy trundle bed. Second bathroom a great convenience w/4 adults in house. Only problem encountered was a somewhat overwhelming smoke odor that appeared each of 3 afternoons around 3-4pm for about 2 hours, to the point we opened the windows and doors to assist in clearing. Two of our party were recovering from head colds and were quite affected by this smokiness that appeared to be seeping in through the heating and return vents. Called both owner and condo manager and were alerted that this problem had been problematic before, but only occasionally. Condo manager was out of town on Saturday when we initially called, and, quite cavalierly, suggested we open windows and doors...which we did in the 25 degree weather. Our call to owner sparked condo manager checking things out upon his return on Monday. He found nothing, but acknowledged that this was ongoing problem. Neighbors(owners) across hall indicated they had previously smelled smokiness in common hallway area, but were now noticing in their condo also. As a health professional, I would suggest this could be a problem for any resident w/respiratory issues, and would certainly spark concern about building a fire in the condo fireplace(we DID NOT build a fire during our stay). Requested partial refund for our aggravation/inconvenience, but to no avail.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all comments on our property and strive to make each guest's experience a positive and comfortable one. In response to the guest's call and email, both the building manager and I contacted him in a timely manner with our best advice regarding the issue he encountered. The building manager also verified that all systems within the building were operating correctly. It seems that this guest experienced an usual set of circumstances involving atmospheric conditions and building occupants having fires that caused the situation. While no other guests have every reported this problem, I certainly understand this guest's concerns and tried to assure him that we were doing our best to address his issues. A letter of apology along with the refund of his security deposit and a refund of 25% of the rental was sent to the guest immediately after the housekeepers completed the check out cleaning and notified me that the condo was in good order. I assume the guest wrote his comments before receiving the refund and letter. Again, we are investigating the situation and will make any corrections that are possible in order to prevent other guests from experiencing this inconvenience. Again, thank your for your comments.
