Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your condo and had a great time skiing in 2 feet of powder (probably more!). Everything worked well, and was perfect for our group! We were so glad to be staying close to the resort where it was an easy walk to the base area, even for the 7-year old in the group. We definitely hope to come back!

Utter disappointment.

  • 2 of 5

There were dirty dishes left in the sink. There wasn't any kind of blind or curtains in the windows so there was no privacy. There was opened packages of food left in the pantry and mouse droppings everywhere. The walls are paper thin. I couldn't access the condos WiFi network or the television. It's a great location, that's about it.

our second trip

  • 5 of 5

this was our second time to stay at cliftons condo.

he was out of the country in south america, so his phenomenal cleaning guy took care of us. 8 of us stayed this time and we still had plenty of space and plenty of fun!!!!

there were 3 couples and 2 spares and everyone loved some late season skiing.

Owner's Response: So happy to have you back... You figured out the secret of post season skiing... It's way better than skiing with the unholy hoards. Hit me up next time , if I'm in the country I can show you some great places nearby. If I'm out of the country, I can refer you too some dudes who do a little back country guiding on the side. They are true enthusiast, they won't take any idiot out in the woods just because he pays them. I think they will take you with my recommendations, you guys are great. This country really needs more people like you!!!

Not clean and strange discussions with the owner

  • 1 of 5

Overall the condo wasn't what we expected.

First when we arrived the condo was not cleaned and the cleaner didn't come. Took the owner days to figure out what happened.

Agreement with the owner was to get the cleaning and pets fee refunded. Never happened due to strange arguments after the stay. Like use of 18 toilet paper rolls which isn't true.

No clean towels and bedclothes.

Condo is not a real Ski In/Out - it's at the very end of Purgatory.

Regarding the hot tub and pool - just steps away and included with your stay. Not true - extra cost per day and at the center of the Purgatory Resort.

No privacy, even the condo is basically a basement it has no shutter at the windows.

Paid a pets fee even pets are not allow in the building at all.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry the cleaner didn't have it ready on time. He had a family medical emergency that he had to attend to and was able to.servixe the condo the next morning. I'm sorry it was difficult to find the condo on skis, it is very easy to ski in and out of the condo. As long as you look at the map to know where you are and where the condo is, you ski downhill and to the south to get to the condo... You ski downhill and ro the north to get feom the condo to the lift. My five year old daughter can find her way, which is what makes our place so great for kids. The resort pool and hot tub is just a few hundred feet away, and access is available if arrangements are made before tour stay. Also perfect to let the kids wander over on their own and give the adults some chill time. There are always clean sheets and towels in the closet, my cleaner keeps several sets and brings them to his house to wash.But I have to warn the community not to rentnto this Tennant. He damaged the condo, clogged the sink , broke a door and stole a whole pack of toilet paper from the closet. My amazing cleaning guy was still able to take care of things in my absence. We don't allow pets, only service animals. But really just avoid this Tennant, his attitude is toxic and he doesn't respect other people's homes.

Romantic Holiday, Luxury and Space

  • 5 of 5

My sweetheart and I came up here for spring break. We were lucky to find something so affordable at spring break. we are grad students, so cash is, well.. non existent. it was perfect. the place is big enough accommodate 2 or 3 families. The place is quite luxurious, with the rainstorm showerhead and a big tv, we felt so pampered. That bed must be made of angel hair and baby fat, I have never slept so well in my life... seriously where did you get that bed? it felt amazing after a day of rocking it on the slopes. I just enjoyed watching the snow fall from the window while i enjoyed my cup of cappuccino. Can't believe you have an espresso machine right there in the apartment!!! Awesomeness is far too rare these days. But these guys are brimming with it. thanks for all the tips and lowdown on local business.

Nice place. Great owner.

  • 4 of 5

Weird bedroom setup. Great for big families. Not so much for multiple couples. Lots of room well stocked kitchen for cooking. Awesome separate hippy lounge. ONLY COMPLAINT:

Ad makes it seem you have access to Durango Mountain Club. IT IS NOT INCLUDED BUT COSTS EXTRA!!

Bargain accommodations with some issues

  • 2 of 5

I have been using VRBO for years, this was my first negative experience.

The Good:

- Good location. It is close to the slopes, easy to access.

- Spacious. For the price, it is more than ample. If you were willing to sleep on the floor, and no worried about showers, you could sleep 20. It really is that big and open.

- Crawl space "pot den". I don't smoke, but if you want a den to get stoned in, the crawl space is as retro groovy as it comes. Austin Powers quality pot den. It is unconditioned, but a fun extra space.

The not so good.

- It is not a true ski in, ski out. If you can find the path and are comfortable skiing through trees you can get about 50ft away. Getting to the lifts is about a 100 yd walk. Accurate description is walk out, ski close.

- The "master bedroom" was enclosed from the crawl space. It is a clever addition, but they did not use enough insulation/sound proofing. So we could clearly distinguish between the upstairs neighbor walking and his dog (every morning at 5AM). It is wake-you-up loud when the dog walks around, much less the person. It is almost like being inside a drum.

- Note the fine print in the descriptions, you do not have access to the pool, hot tub, and gym unless you pay extra. It is something like 20% extra.

- It is not ground level. It is a daylight basement. Parking and general access are one level above the unit.

The Reason for a bad review

- The water heater is turned down to tepid. It is marked with various threatening language about touching the thermostat (barred from VRBO). So this is a known problem. My "hot" shower was turn on the hot spigot only. This meant maybe 2 hot showers a night. Long day skiing then a cold shower is not fun enhancing.

- 2 of 5 baseboard heaters were not working. It was always on the edge of being cold inside.

- No window coverings. There is not a lot of foot traffic in front of the windows, but the windows were cold zones.

- The place was not clean when we arrived. We had to wash sheets to sleep on and do general (sanitary) cleaning. No toilet paper or soap. Bring lots of quarters for laundry.

Overall, we loved the mountain. We had great snow. There were few people on the mt during the week. This condo place could be a real gem with a little work and some sound proofing.
