About Holly Jason

We have lived in Durango for over 18 years and can help you plan a wonderful vacation for your family. Concierge services included!

Holly Jason purchased this house in 2004

Why Holly Jason chose Southwestern Colorado

The location is very much downtown with three breakfast places within a block, and the local food co-op grocery store right across the street. If you don't want to drive and you want a house instead of a condo, this is your place.

What makes this house unique

Unique decor, and a real house with character. This is a super comfortable house with all the trappings. We have paid much attention to the details: super nice beds and linens, hand made soap, La Creuset pans, Weber Grill, original Art. We have really had fun making this place special.

Fun time in Durango CO

  • 5 of 5

The house is conveniently located, close to downtown and a hiking trail. The beds are extremely comfortable and the house is very quaint. It is on a somewhat busy street during the day but at night it quiets down. It has a driveway to park in which is nice and we were able to walk to restaurants, coffee shops and some great little diners.

Convenient Location & Very Responsive Owners

  • 4 of 5

Good, convenient location in Durango albeit on a very busy street. Still within easy walking distance to Durango Joe's Coffee & Natural Coop Grocery -- literally across the street. Owners Holly & Ben were super helpful in assisting us with some challenges during our stay. Super clean house with comfy beds & very convenient shared washer & dryer.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

I found the house to be charming, well situated, and a comfortable place to stay for the three nights and four days we were in Durango. The two beds are quite comfortable, the linens well chosen and the common rooms were spatious and well laid out. I would also note the apartment is absolutely spotless and we greatly appreciated the cleanliness of the home after another VBRO stay the days prior that was not so nice. Finally, the home has a great grocery and coffee shop around the corner.

I'm from NY and don't mind the 15 minute walk to downtown / main street. If you aren't wanting to walk downtown, it may be a bit far.
