Overview

About the property

CONDO IS THE CLOSEST to the SKI SLOPES and LIONSHEAD SKI SCHOOL! Pet Friendly ***

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! This 2BD/2BA condo is perfectly located just 100 steps from the gondola and only 35 steps to the Lionshead Arcade Bus Stop, the preferred method of transportation in Vail! Celebrate the $1 billion renovation in Lionshead Village and enjoy the new premium shops, restaurants, and bars that Lionshead has to offer!

Enter a hip but cozy apartment that has been freshly painted in November (2015). Loft ceilings give the apartment an abundance of light and space. You are in the heart of Lionshead/Vail in walking distance to the slopes and Eagle Bahn Gondola, Ski School, Starbucks, Haagen Dazs and gorgeous shops. You can't go wrong eating at one of the sophisticated restaurants or hanging and listening to music at a nearby pub. Although it is in the heart of Lionshead, our apartment is well insulated and quiet and you never hear the people or the highway.

Fresh carpet is found in both bedrooms & hard wood floors are in living room & dining room. The gourmet kitchen is completely stocked with matching dishes, glass ware and Emeril cookware; etc. A full size matching LG Tromm washer & dryer are installed in the unit.

Each bedroom has high thread count, premium Euro Style bedding with down pillows & comforters. You will sleep beautifully in the luxurious 450 thread count sheets and thick comforters. Both bathrooms are stocked with premium hotel collection towels in matching soft hews.

The deck overlooks Vail Mountain & Lionshead Square and the shops and restaurants. The billion dollar Arrabelle Resort & Spa is right across the street.

Amenities include: 32' flatscreen TVs in living room & master bedroom, iHome players in both bedrooms & living room, fire place (firewood provided), Wi Fi & high speed internet, open floor plan of living room, dining room & new kitchen. The second bedroom has a Smart TV, with Hulu & Netflix. There is a full size washer and dryer in unit and covered parking. Enjoy a cup of coffee or hot chocolate on us. 2 blow dryers, tissues, toilet paper, dishwasher detergent and laundry supplies included.

The Lionshead Children’s Ski School reservation center is 15 kid steps from our condo’s stairwell. It is literally the closest condo to the school & if your family participates you will love the convenience. You can get your children reserved and situated in ski school & then return to the condo for another cup of coffee & finish getting dressed. And ..... the location is wonderfully convenient if you forgot something. You have to walk up 2 stories to get to the condo but the condo & the location, location, location are well worth it!

If you are bringing your own equipment, then take advantage of the ski/snowboard valet service that we have arranged for you. You can leave your equipment there each day (on us) & walk the few steps to the condo building empty handed.

If you need to rent equipment, we have established a relationship with a Ski & Rental shop 10 steps from our condo stairwell. They will provide you with a 20% discount off your rental equipment. They have excellent service and top of the line equipment.

PLEASE NOTE; If our calendar shows booked - please ask us about our 2 neighbors' condos - same amazing location, amenities & ski valet service!

About RJ Rotman

We are a family of 4 from California but vacation in Vail as often as possible. RJ (26) & Maddy (17) have traveled to the 'dark side' and are snow boarders while Ken & 24 year old daughter, Jackie, still manage to get down the slope on skies. All of us enjoy the snow & it brings our family closer together each time we travel to Vail. We spend a lot of time in the condo and have done our best to make it a wonderful & very comfortable experience for ourselves & our guests.

RJ Rotman purchased this condo in 2006

Why RJ Rotman chose Vail

We bought our condo in 2006 and have never regretted it. We loved the condo because of how close it was to the ski school, Eagle Bahn Gondola & mountain - not to mention the shops, restaurants & the town bus. LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!

Great location but cramped and uncomfortable

  • 2 of 5

While the location is great-- in the heart of lionshead--, we found the space uncomfortable. The spaces were tight filled with lots of big furniture. There was virtually zero overhead lighting and clutter under the beds and boxes on top of cabinets. The furniture looked very worn and there were holes and rips and leftover food in the freezer and refrigerator. The wifi never worked. If you are looking for a place to crash, this is it but if you are looking for comfort I would not recommend.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry to see such a negative review, my 2nd 2 star review ever! Yes, there is little overhead lighting in our unit but we make sure to have plenty of lamps in every room to ensure sufficient lighting and this really hasn't been an issue for guests in the past. In regards to the boxes under beds, yes, we do store toiletries and other essentials for guests under the beds (out of sight) but since guests rarely need to use the spaces under the beds, this has also never been an issue for guests in the past, I'm sorry it was an issue for your group. I'm also sorry to hear the rip in the couch was a big issue for you. Once again, this hasn't been such an issue in the past since it's just under one of the arms on one of the couches. In regards to the food in the freezer and fridge, I always instruct the cleaners to take any non-perishable food they see or leave it for the next guests. I figure as long as the food is non-perishable it's best to leave it for someone who may want it rather than just throwing away good food/condiments but there's normally never more than 1 or 2 things left. In regards to the wifi, I know there was an issue when you first checked in but it was my understanding the issue was resolved once the router was restarted. I'm sorry our unit wasn't a good fit for you but I find and hear from most guests that it's hard to beat our unit's price and location.

Nice location. Old building

Nice location. Poor internet connection. Very small bathroom.

Owner's Response: Brian, So sorry to see a 2 star review (my first review that hasn't been 4 or 5 stars since I've been managing the property). I know there were issues with the internet upon checkin but your wife said it was working fine after the router was restarted. Sorry to hear this was a big issue for you. In regards to the building, yes it is an older building but I always make sure to set the right expectations for my guests so I'm sorry to hear this was also an issue.

Family Ski Trip with Kids

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent trip. We have three children and the location was more than perfect. All three were in ski school and having the luxury of getting them ready to take them down the steps to check in was wonderful. After we got them in the two different areas I was able to return to the room to get ready myself. The communication with the owner was over the top. They were very clear about the unit being on the third floor from the get go. It was not an issue for us including our 5 year old. We would definitely stay again.

Location, location, location!

This condo is perfectly located.

As stated in other reviews, it's on the third floor,

but active, healthy people should have no issues.

The thing that puts this place over the top, in my opinion,

is the attention to detail, and the prompt, friendly responses

of the owner(s).

Lastly, and feel free to disregard this as hippy nonsense, there

is good karma in the place, like people have had lots of happy

times there.
