Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

***Great Discounts for longer visits ***Relax and rejuvenate with your sweetie or another couple (up to 6 people with the new sleeper sofa). GREAT for families too. After a great day in the mountains, why not dim the lights, turn up the fire, and plug in your MP3 for some music with friends, The entertainment system is great for sports and movies, which you can record while your out via the cable DVR or DVD with HDTV. A fine selection of glasses provide the right vehicle for any apéritif. Then fire up the BBQ on the huge covered patio, or whip up some tasty treats in a cook's kitchen, or head out for your choice of some world class restaurants just minutes away (recommendations provided). Little extras like the slow cooker makes hearty meals easy, while the cappuccino maker finishes off with style. It's pretty hard to go wrong here.

Underground parking keeps you dry when the shuttle stop across the street isn't as appealing. Convenient ski and boot storage in the entry keeps your valuables safe and warm (for another big day tomorrow!). With one of the two bathrooms in the guest bedroom, you can feel comfortable spreading out.

We have spent many years creating our home away from home. Our goal is to keep a small group of regular, trustworthy guests. We know you'll love it, and we look forward to your return for many years to come.

About Bob

After exploring 6 continents, we have determined that Vail is indeed 'like nothing on earth'. We've gone to the extreme in designing our condo for our favorite times of the day...morning coffee and happy hour. Prior lounge/bar owners, we respect the importance of lighting and music in creating the right atmosphere. Her nursing background keeps us thinking about safety, while his love of adventure keeps pushing our limits. We are entertainers at heart, and only wish we could enjoy your time in our condo with you. :-)

Bob purchased this condo in 2009

Why Bob chose Northwest Colorado

We have been enjoying Vail since we were children in the Midwest. As we stepped into parenthood ourselves, we wanted to make sure the tradition continues for many more generations. This place is heaven.

What makes this condo unique

I've made it onto the gondola within 8 minutes of walking out the door. The free shuttle stop across the street is 1 stop away from the walking bridge. And in the summer, it's hard to beat mountain biking and hiking out your back door, only to return to your own semi-private pool (summer only). World class conveniences surround you in Vail, yet it's very easy to break away and enjoy the energy of your natural surroundings, and the local hangouts in nearby old west towns.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Bob! We really enjoyed our time in Vail. The condo was great!

Perfect size condo and great access to mountain

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here during my recovery from surgery at Vail and it was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed, it was very spacious and we loved the fireplace.

Overall great spot! Less than 5 min drive to vail and if I had been skiing the bus seemed super convient and right outside the door! Would recommend this place over and over again!

Little details made our stay memorable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time here at Vail. The condo was very comfortable, clean and well stocked. It had all the conveniences of home. The shuttle to the Vail transportation center was just across the street and made getting to the ski hill so convenient. Thank you for the complimentary bottle of wine, we appreciated the gesture! We enjoyed looking at the pictures in the condo from around the world. In particular were the 3 pictures above the kitchen table that became topics of our dinner conversation many nights as we tried to figure out where they were from. We will definitely stay here again!

Amazing location, really nice place, owners are awesome

  • 5 of 5

This place is across the street from the free bus to the resort and to town. There is also a pizza place and bar across the street that is open till 2am every day, which is awesome. Really enjoyed our stay there and Bob was very nice and made it easy to get everything squared away. Check out/clean up list was super short and simple. Will definitely return, this place is a gem.

Newly remodeled, comfortable, convenient, caring, & affordable = great value

  • 5 of 5

Who says accommodations near Vail can't be affordable? This unit was recently remodeled with new appliances, and offers all the comforts of home. Just 3 short bus stops and you're to hit the slopes. The owner was very responsive, offered great suggestions for dining, and kept us updated when the Property had a short utility interruption. Overall, this unit is a great value and we will definitely consider for future trips to Vail.

Great location & amenities for Vail Valley events

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at your condo during the World Fly Fishing Championships being held in Vail and the Octoberfest celebration was an added bonus. The amenities in the condo and location are great along with the ease of the transaction make it a place I would definitely return too.

Thanks for allowing us the share your home.
