About Mervyn Davies

The Davies family has been working toward purchasing a condo for many years in the Summit area. 2012 was our year! We hope you enjoy this as much as we do. We love this area for the great skiing, hiking and bicycling. We live on the front range of Colorado and have made this area our playground for 30 years! Both my wife and I came to Colorado for school and have stayed to make it our home.

Mervyn Davies purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mervyn Davies chose Summit County Colorado

This home has a great location. it is central to the entire area. Several years ago while bicycling the around the lake we made the comment that this was the are we would want to buy when we could. We feel so fortunate to have found a place in the mountains on the water with a heated garage! In the winter that garage is the best, the car is warm, clean and ready to go. And the skiing is just great with so many choices minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

The home is clean, quiet and just easy! You can cook in or walk across Summit Blvd (Highway 9) to a variety of great restaurants. Fish with the kids in the Lagoon in the summer, its private (no fishing license) and stocked with Trout. We want you to feel comfortable from the moment you walk in. Come and enjoy a relaxing vacation or be active taking advantage of all the different things you can do in this area.

Great location and views

  • 4 of 5

I would give unit 5 stars, my wife 3, but only because of two minor things: 1) living room area is quite dark, 2) patio is so narrow you have to angle your chair to sit on it, and since unit is dark and the view from living room is drop dead beautiful, she wanted to sit outside all of the time; instead she spent most of her time in the bedroom because it was bright and sunny, though with a view of the parking lot.

Me, I thought it was great. Again, the view is fabulous, located right on a small lagoon/large pond with BIG trout just waiting to be caught. And the location is superb if you're interested in biking ... Perhaps not as great if you want to be close to downtown Frisco (but still, only a mile or so away). The LR area IS dark, to be sure. The bedroom is quite large with a very comfortable bed --- the view here is not so great ... The parking lot, but you can't have views everywhere!

My only complaint was the TV ... They are both very small, and it seems as if they aren't HD, though they probably are, just not very clear pictures. Since Wimbledon and Euro Cup were both running during our stay, i tried to watch, but it was almost impossible to see anything Without pulling chair right up to TV.

The owner was fantastic to work with, and I would personally rent again in a heartbeat ... But my wife wouldn't let me.

Comfortable, private, overlooking a peaceful lagoon, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, very private, one bedroom Condo, overlooking a peaceful

lagoon. Nicely furnished and set up with TVs and other electronics. Living

room and kitchen spacious and comfortable for multiple guests. Wi-Fi

worked well with plenty of speed for needed tasks. Washer and dryer great

to reduce over-packing with the ease of clean clothes while relaxing around

the condo. Centrally located for all of Summit County, Colorado activities and

attractions as well as a short drive to Vail. Owner was great to work

with, instructions clear, all appliance directions readily available. Recommend this highly.

Incredible Frisco Condo

  • 5 of 5

This large 1 bedroom condo is great – full of unexpected luxuries. 2 Decks – one with a great view over the Lagoon, an extra large walk-in shower and separate soaking tub and a garage so you don’t have to scrape snow from your vehicle. We stayed three different times during the last ski season and highly recommend this condoy. Merve made the booking process so easy, was prompt with deposit refunds and when we had an issue with heat he had it fixed while we were out playing on the mountain.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We had another problem with the boiler, so we just finished replacing the entire heating system with a new high efficiency system. Should not have any problems for many years to come! Please come back. Merve

A wonderful week in Frisco

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this condo. The kitchen was very nice, as well as the rest of the rooms. We especially liked the comfy firm king sized bed. It made for a very good night's sleep after a hard day on the slopes. Having a heated garage is another awesome perk of staying here and Merve was very helpful and friendly. We'll definitely be staying here again next year.

So enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Weather plays a big role in the amount of enjoyment you experience during a vacation and we were fortunate to stay in Frisco when the weather was perfect - lots of fresh snow everyday.

The other main factor - are you comfortable. The Davies provides the utmost comfort. We've stayed at several places in the area and this is by far the most comfortable bed ever. The finishes in the condo are beautiful - the couch and chairs are comfortable - the walk in shower is huge. All these things - maybe you can find one or two of them at another location - however when combined with the responsiveness of the owners - it just makes the entire vacation a dream. Merve - we can't wait to return - doing our snow dance for more great weather.

Car: recommended

There is so much to do within walking distance of our home that its hard to list in a small space! Bicycle and walking trails are just down the street, walk to Frisco for shopping or restaurants. Fish for Trout right out the back door on our privately stocked lagoon. Swim at the pool or in the summer play tennis at the courts. thats without the use of your car... then go ski, sledding, hiking, snowmobiling, boating, the list just goes on.....
