The Phoenix condo description

DEAL MATCH - if you find a better deal on a place as nice as ours, JUST ASK and we will see what we can do!

'Steamboat Retreat' is the perfect place to curl up with a cup of cocoa in front of the fire after a full day of enjoying Steamboat's legendary champagne powder in winter, or hiking in summer!

Do you love waking up slowly on a winter morning, snuggling under the fluffy comforter, and then cooking a leisurely breakfast before heading out for a fantastic day of sun and snow? Perhaps your idea of the perfect vacation is to spring out of bed early and be at the gondola as soon as it opens, so that you can be the first to break the fresh powder or groomers. Either way, we've got you covered!

Start your day with a cup of fresh-ground coffee and breakfast in our very well appointed stainless/granite kitchen. (I like to cook and have equipped the kitchen accordingly!) Slip into your ski/snowboard clothes - your boots are warm from sitting on the fireplace hearth - and grab your equipment from the heated garage, and then walk across the street (or take the free on-call shuttle) to the gondola and quick access to CHAMPAGNE POWDER!!

You may come back for lunch and a nap, or eat at any of the great restaurants on the mountain or at the base - don't miss the pho at Thunderhead!

At the end of the day, ski almost to your vacation condo, take the short walk back across the street (or take the free shuttle), shed your ski/snowboard gear, pour yourself some water or other beverage, and pop out the door to the hot tub or heated pool - right next to the condo! You may have chili simmering in the crockpot, ready for you to enjoy a hearty dinner in your cozy pajamas after a relaxing soak in the hot tub, or you may choose to take the free shuttle to any of the great restaurants on the mountain or downtown. We are happy to recommend our favorites for you.

Features of our vacation home:

This exclusive 1232 sq ft two bedroom, three bath condominium at the Phoenix features stainless appliances, granite countertops, slate flooring, and rustic Mexican furniture. Large master has brand new queen bed, private bath, and granite-topped vanity, plus a patio with easy access to the heated pool/hot tubs a few yards away. Second bedroom has twin beds and private bath, and the living area includes a very comfortable pull-out couch with a brand new air mattress, and a private bath. Living/dining area overlooks the pool area.

The upper level also includes a heated one-car garage with ski racks; walk across Apres Ski Way to the slopes and ski/hike down to the gondola. After an active day outside, the free shuttle can take you to the ski area base or downtown for dinner at one of Steamboat's fabulous restaurants.

                        Enjoyed a very pleasant stay at Steamboat Retreat just prior to the 4th of July. Comfortable accomodations, very close to swimming pool and to Gondola Square (great for skiing AND summer activities, too). Would rent again.

                        nt! The walk to the slopes was perfect with a small grocery close by for needed items. The renovations are great and there is plenty of room for a small or large family. This is definitely a unit we will stay in again!!!

                        upon arrival we found the master bedroom bed unmade as if someone had been sleeping in it, dirty dishes on master bath counter and load of towels in washer that appeared to have been washed and forgotten as they were dry. Had to re-wash those towels and the sheets upon arrival. Location is great and the Shuttle service is excellent. We had brought movies with us to watch; however, DVD player was not working, finally on the 3rd day we were able to get it working. Kitchen is well equipped. Floors were dirty so wear socks.

                        Recommended for: Tourists without a car.

                        Owner response: The guest writing this review unfortunately failed to notice the 4pm check-in time in the instructions, and arrived several hours early without prior coordination. Another guest had left just that morning, and our housekeeper had not yet reached our unit to clean it. Our cleaning crew thus had to clean quickly under the watching eye of the guest, and had difficulty achieving their usual high standard of quality under these conditions. We repair and replace items that do not work, and were unaware of the problem with the DVD. We are sorry that the guest experienced dissatisfaction. In eight years this is the first negative feedback we've received and we are attempting to determine if we need to make changes to our cleaning contract.

                        The condo offered the perfect sanctuary after long days of hiking, riding, and generally playing around in Steamboat. The pool and facilities are perfect for vacations with children. The pool and hot tub are literally just outside the condo's door. The condo was clean, comfortable and convenient.

                        We loved our stay in Steamboat. The unit was lovely! I especially liked the kitchen. It was very well equipped and had everything. The rooms were spacious with plenty of natural light. We were very close to the pool and hot tubs. The fitness room was excellent. It was a plus to have a washer and dryer downstairs away fro the main living area (meaning quiet). What a treat to have a garage and plenty of room to hang skis and gear in the garage. They had extra niceties such as humidifiers, portable crib, etc. Three bathrooms was appreciated. The pictures represented the unit well. We loved 8th Steak House , the Wildhorse Cinema and of course the skiing They have plenty of spa and other places to pamper oneself. Wonderful accommodations in a great town! Rick and Ann were easy and pleasant to work with and quick to respond to questions. Come stay and see for yourself.

                        We had an awesome vacation in Steamboat. We had easy access to Christy sports for equipment rental, easy access ( walk across the street) to the slopes, shopping and dining. Only time we used our rental auto was to get there from Denver, one trip to town for diner at Mahogany Ridge Brewery & a quick stop at Walmart and back to Denver. 3 baths were nice and access from the unit to the hot tub, sauna, and pool was the best at the Phoenix. Kitchen was loaded with anything you might need. Thanks R & A as this was one of the BEST vacations we have ever had! Your Friends from Ga. Go Dawgs!

                        Wonderful condo in the Mountain Village area. Very comfortable for our family and with lots of walking trails and beautiful outdoor spots nearby. We enjoyed the season and hikes near Fish Falls and Catamount. Would love to return with the snow this winter! Thanks!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Steamboat Retreat belongs to Anne & Rick Johnson (AZ) and John & Mimi Catlin (MD and UK), who are Anne's parents. We regularly visit Steamboat with the kids/grandkids, (8 and 5). Rick is an airline pilot (retired from USAF), John is an engineer, Anne is a recovering engineer and entrepreneur, Natalie is a fashionista, Ryan is a trip, and Mimi stays busy trying to keep track of the rest of the gang.

                      Why the Owner Chose The Phoenix:
                      The Yampa Valley Curse got us! We went to Steamboat for skiing in 2002, and have been coming back ever since. The skiing is fantastic, the town is friendly, and the Phoenix is in a great location.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The condo itself is beautifully decorated and well positioned in the complex, overlooking the pool. The slopes are right across the street, so we can easily walk to the base area, including ski school. The Phoenix has a BRAND NEW exterior, with all new windows and doors - come check it out!
