About Larry Blivas

We love the the winters and have come to enjoy the summers with equal beauty and endless amount of activities like, hiking, biking, fishing, listening to concerts at the Ford Amphitheater and enjoying the best food. We know you will find our home just as terrific as we have and look forward to having you as one of our guests.

Of all of the properties in Vail, this Location is truly the best and now that the Talisa Resort - a Starwood Hotel has invested $60MM in renovations, we truly do live next to the NEW TALISA 5 STAR LUXURY RESORT WITH ALL NEW INTERIORS, SPA, TOP RATED RESTAURANT, BAR, AND with all the amenities you could ever seek in a top resort in the world.

Beautiful mountain house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Larry's home is beautiful and ideally situated just outside of Lionshead Village walking distance from Hotel Talisa. The home is very large and well appointed. The pictures do not do it justice. The master bedroom is large and comfortable, with a four post bed and large walk-in closet. The master bathroom is very luxurious with a double vanity and walk-in shower and jacuzzi tub. The other three bedrooms are very nice as well and the bathrooms are luxurious with double vanities. The home is perfect for large groups of friends or families. There are also pull-out sofas in the living room and family room downstairs. The kitchen is well appointed as well and perfect for cooking for groups and families. There is also a new, big, curved LED TV in the living room with plenty of seating. There is room for one car in the garage and probably 2-3 outside. All in all, the house was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Larry is a gracious and attentive host. Highly recommended.

Fantastic home with space for our family of 8.

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit to this home. It is perfect for our family of 8 plus an infant. Private bed and bath for 4 couples, 2 huge common spaces and a very well equipped kitchen (plates and drinkware for 20). I hope this home is available should our travels bring us back to Vail.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We looked at many properties in Vail, but we kept coming back to this property. I contacted the owner and after talking to him, I realized this was definitely the place we wanted to stay. We were in Vail for my son's wedding, and this property had everything we needed. Plenty of bedrooms, and bathrooms! We used all four bedrooms , and never felt like we were crowded for space. The view was great from almost every room in the house. Everything in the house worked, and there was even a pack and play for our granddaughter.

The proximity of the house to everything was good. Grocery store 10 minutes one way, and Vail Village 5 minutes the other.

Reserving the property went smoothly, and about ten days before, we received the checkin instructions and also a list of things to do in Vail. Communication was never an issue with the owners before and during our stay.

Overall, we were very pleased with this rental. The only negative about our stay was that when we were leaving, we wished we could have stayed a few more days to just relax at the house after all the wedding festivities! Would stay here again.
