About Billy Marcus

I split my time between Vail & Austin, TX. I am an avid swing & lindy hop dancer and travel all over the US competing & social dancing. My goal is to some day live in the Vail Valley full time and help build a local dance community. Though my passion is dancing & teaching dance, my career is selling meat or other protein based foods all over the world. I'm fulfilling the destiny of a long line of meat traders from back in the 1930's when my grandfather sold meat for Swift in Chicago. Another passion of mine is snowboarding & telemark skiing, lately it's been all about telemarking.

Billy Marcus purchased this house in 2003

Why Billy Marcus chose West Vail

Intermountain, West Vail is so convenient, our Private Mountain House is centrally located between Vail, Minturn, Beaver Creek, Avon & Edwards making the drive to any ski area/parking access to lifts within 10 - 15 minutes. My family has been vacationing in the Vail valley since the 1980's, I grew up vacationing in this area. It's hard to beat what Vail Valley has to offer throughout the year.

What makes this house unique

I wanted to have a place in Vail that was close enough to rely on public transportation to get to the town of Vail but central enough to drive down valley to Avon & Edwards. The home is in a private, residential neighborhood which is close to the park & Stephens Off Leash dog park and a three minutes walk to the Meadow Creek Bus stop that picks up every 15 to 30 minutes depending on the season. The private shared hot tub allows our guests to unwind after a long day of activities. We are dog friendly for non-aggressive breeds.

My husband and I have two little doggies so finding a nice place to stay isnt always easy. We found it! We loved our place in West Vail that was so convenient to the bus line so we could hop on the bus to get into the villiage. This turned out to be a great location. Loved it and hope to go back!

Well maintained and great amenities

Had a great time staying in the studio apartment. The bathroom was well redone and the kitchen had what you needed to cook meals. The large tv and hottub were a great bonus!

Very nice property, good amenities, good location

  • 4 of 5

The unit itself was extremely nice. It had very nice furnishing, nice floors, pretty spacious, and an excellent location. There were a couple of problems and I'm quite sure it was because of the people in one of the other units. When we first arrived we were astounded by the inside of the unit. We had just fin fished snowboarding for the day and decided it would be a good time for the hot tub. We opened the top and first thing we saw was a used bandaid floating in the hot tub. That ruined that for us. So we went downstairs and decided to shower and relax. All the sudden the neighbors upstairs got home and it sounded like people were running a marathon upstairs. This continues until about 11pm and started back up at 6 am. Like I said the unit was awesome!!!

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfectly adequate, nothing special but had it all. Close to the bus stop so no car needed. Which was good because parking could have been a problem. The rooms were dark and the lighting wasn't great especially the kitchen but we really didn't spend much time there so it was fine.

It was a great rental all things considered.

Nice place some small inconveniences

  • 4 of 5

We like the place well enough. It was good for the two of us as we don't like hotels and didn't want to pay for a multi-bedroom unit.

Pluses: heater works quickly, nice views from the front lawn, fully appointed kitchen, and onsite washer/dryer for ski gear, the couch is a sleeper sofa so it pulled out into a nice place for us to watch tv and relax after a day on the slopes, and the shower got hot quickly and stayed that way no concerns about using all the hot water.

Drawbacks: The parking spot assigned to this unit is tricky to get into especially if you've rented a larger vehicle to deal with potential snows. In order for the other units to access their spot i had to actually put one wheel off the driveway to make space. The drive way is immensely steep and so backing into a small spot up a steep driveway can be challenging. The driveway is heated which makes this even possible but without a 4 wheels drive vehicle I would have struggled. The upstairs tenants were definitely audible walking around but they kept approximately the same hours as we did so this was not much of a draw back.

We would stay here again.
