About Dina Castillo

My Husband and I love Vail. In 2012 we made our dream of owning a property in Vail come true (see our other listing) Soon after closing on the property we got engaged!!! We decided to rent our property to help pay for our wedding in La Paz, Bolivia. Our property rented so well...we were booked out of our own condo. So we decided to look for another.

Dina Castillo purchased this condo in 2013

Why Dina Castillo chose Northwest Colorado

We looked at so many properties all over Vail, (East and West) but we knew we wanted to be in the Sandstone area. It's the only neighborhood that overlooks the ski slopes. The bus rides are short, the stops are convenient and the views are to die for.

What makes this condo unique

When we saw this unit, I fell in love. It was so beautifully remodeled with high end finishes. A Bright and sunny, corner unit with it's own private walk up...no sharing of hallways and the noise that comes with it. Also, it over looks Sandstone Creek. The noise of the water is so soothing. All you hear is the rushing water....and I even saw a trout!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to tell you how much we enjoyed staying in your condo. We especially liked the fireplace heater. It was really nice to sit in front of after a day of skiing. We will be looking to book the unit again about the same time next year.

A NON SUGAR COATED REVIEW OF A GOOD PROPERTY

  • 4 of 5

This condo owned by Dina is very well managed. It is well stocked, immaculate and a good value. It is convenient to Vail Village and the grocery store so I would clearly rent it again. Dina is very attentive and helpful making the rental experience easy. It is very nicely decorated and the bed is very comfortable.

As with most things there is room for improvement. The tv in the bedroom did not work off the remote. I am sure you could call the cable provider to get instructions but who wants to bother when on vacation. The shower door is only dangerously hanging on its track and I am sure Dina will look into this. The sliding door to the balcony has no lock for the screen. This could be improved for security. My wife loved the raging brook but I found the noise much too loud. This was in July so maybe in Sept it's not a problem. Thus, keeping the door closed worked fine but that pretty much cuts off ventilation. The bedroom faced the parking lot so late at night (maybe on Friday) you may be awakened by late revelers if you open that window.

If you are looking for a view you will not have it here. The condo is pretty dark with little light. For us it was not an issue. It is very user friendly with only 2 stairs to climb and a short walk to the parking lot.

Remember, I would rent it again. I am only being so critical to be helpful to future renters.

Excellent! Will rent this one again!

  • 5 of 5

This was without a doubt the cleanest, most well furnished condo I've ever rented. The pictures didn't give it justice. Let's just say that if you forgot something and thought you'd need to go to the store, you probably won't except for food. Items that were in supply were things like various soaps, shampoo, plenty of towels, sheets, spices, even alcohol was left from previous stays? LOL

The bed was extremely comfortable. The creek was like your own sound soother, hummingbirds zipping everywhere. The WIFI was faster than at home! The TV worked flawlessly, fireplace, the kitchen was so well stocked I truly couldn't believe it. I was sad that I was by myself not sharing with someone. :)

You will not be disappointed with this condo.

The only malfunction was an electronic key lock on the door. The service guy came over on his bike and helped me out. I'm sure it's resolved. Community trash with code...no problem. Parking (zero problem) right out front. Up 3 steps or so and down 30 feet to the door. Oh the grill worked perfectly. Whoever they have cleaning this place does an EXCELLENT job. The place next door was for sale and if my kids didn't have to stay here for the ex, I'd buy it and live there.

The property is a perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfectly located outside of the village. Easy to get most anywhere. The home was well furnished and the owner very responsive to our questions. The white noise of the creek provided a feeling of being much deeper in the mountains. We had a great stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Brian: I'm so glad you liked the sound of the creek. We often leave the slider open so it fills the condo with it's soothing water sounds.

Comfy, warm and close to Lionshead

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable condo only a 10-15 walk from Lionshead itself which worked great for our ski hire and skiing. Can also catch the local bus from the same road direct to Vail and the supermarket if needed. Loved the fire which was a nice feeling when returning from a day on the slopes.

Would recommend Local Joes at the end of the road for good pizza and beers and also Moes (good wings) and Bart & Yetis in Lionshead for an apres beer.

Would of loved more channels on the tv (no sports at all!) if I was being really picky but we loved our stay here anyway.

This was a great place to be during our time in Vail. Located close enough to get to all the fun.

  • 5 of 5

After some initial difficulties with the door entry keypad system and the fireplace heater, all went beautifully well. The owners were very responsive and helpful and immediately available by phone. Our problem was not being able to decipher the bus system well enough to trust it to get places on time. However, the location was pretty with the snow and creek right outside the patio doors. It was close to groceries and other shopping yet seemed to be out in the country at the same time. We were able to drive to Lionshead and Vail Village easily. Parking seemed to be available best on weekdays. We did dinner at Game Cteek in the top of the mountain, a very different and grand experience. We snowmobiled and they picked us up and took us right up the mountain behind us! Well worth the money! The condo was comfy and warm and we were able to cook meals and sleep in comfort. We would suggest a bench near the front door to facilitate getting boots and clothing on and off without tracking wetness in wood floor. A dedicated plastic tray to hold the humidifier would be helpful, too. We just used one from the closet. The new humidifier arrived at the end of out stay so we only got use of it for a day. It is certainly something that helps your comfort level in the mountains and dry heat. Our time here was enjoyable and what we hoped it would be. The suggestions on the paperwork Dina provided helped us choose places to eat and things to do without wondering about how good of a value they were! Thanks!
