Alpine Vista townhome description


This stylish, ultra-luxe accommodation was completed in August 2003. Steamboat Valhalla is named after the heavenly hall in which Odin, king of the Norse gods, received the souls of valiant Vikings who were slain in battle. Today, our Non-Smoking Valhalla was created to pamper the bodies and minds of the outdoor warrior, whether he or she be a skier, snowboarder, snowmobiler, biker, hiker, hunter, or boater.

Our home is decorated in mountain eclectic luxury, with all of the details you would ever want in a vacation property. Inside, you will find four bedrooms--two of which are master suites--and four and a half baths. The master suites have king size beds, with ultra-plush linens, goose down feather beds, and over-sized comforters. The bathrooms have steam showers, his/her sinks, thick plush Turkish cotton towels, premium soaps (Neutrogena & Oil of Olay),and shampoos (Kiss My Face and American Crew). Each room has a TV, DVD/VCR, CD player, iHome Clock Radio/iPod player, and a sitting area.

The third bedroom suite has a queen size aspen log bed with goose down feather bed, 300-count Egyptian cotton sheets, and an inflatable full size air mattress. The fourth bedroom suite has a bunk bed, two twin beds (trundle), TV, DVD/VCR, an XBox and PlayStation 2 (w/several games)--definitely the kids' room!

The Great Room has a gas fireplace, 14-foot windows with unobstructed views of the top of the Gondola, Persian rugs, 55' LCD screen HDTV, and a Bose Surround Sound home theater. We recently incorporated AppleTV into this entertainment system, so those visitors with Apple OS can view/listen to their own media, in addition to Netflix, HBOgo, etc. We also have a sitting area with a scanner/printer so that you can make copies of any documents you might need while away from the office. A fax machine is provided for your convenience.

MEDIA PACKAGE: The Great Room has a 55' LCD HDTV. We are subscribed to DirecTV Total Choice package--including HBO--and we now have the Genie System running on all TVs throughout the home. The Genie allows up to 1 terrabyte of storage on the DVR, and each room has access to all content stored on the DVR system. We also have the NFL Sunday Ticket package, so you won't miss any games during the NFL season! We recently installed an Apple TV in the Great Room, as well, so those visitors running Apple OS will be able to access all of their media. All but the queen BR have access to Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Pandora, etc. through either a Smart TV or a Blu-Ray Disc Player. You will have more viewing media here than you know what to do with! All of this is included free of charge as part of your nightly rental fees.

The gourmet chef's kitchen is stocked with all basic cooking amenities including spices, olive oils, several vinegars, Nespresso cappuccino machine and capsules, and professional cooking appliances. The dining area can accommodate up to eight adults (with the leaves in the table), and the breakfast bar can accommodate four more place settings.

There are several board games (Monopoly, Risk, Scrabble, Rigamarole, Candy Land, Uncle Wiggly, etc.) and many quality novels in our game chest. We also have a full video library with over 300 movies (lots of modern classics and kids flix). In the heated garage, you will find a parking space for 1-2 cars, ski racks, a dart board, and a four-pair PROFESSIONAL BOOT DRYER and HEATER. **(We cannot emphasize how great this amenity is: Warm, dry feet are one of the keys to a wonderful ski vacation!)

You are only a ten minute walk, or a one minute drive from the gondola. The free skier shuttle bus stops 50 steps from our front door, and it runs every ten to fifteen minutes.

There is soft light, pleasant warmth, and overall comfort at Steamboat Valhalla. We have created this property for the discerning vacationer who wants ultra-luxury, relaxation, and no worries. See you in Steamboat!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We love the down-to-earth vibe in Steamboat. A real ski town with real people. Steamboat Resort has a GREAT kids' ski school. Tons and tons of fresh powder. Newly renovated base area at Gondola Square has update the resort to comparable mountain towns. Steamboat is one of the premier ski destinations in North America. In the summer, activities like golf, fly fishing, horseback riding, world-class mountain biking, hiking, and rodeo abound. If you like skiing--and real cowboys--and great outdoor activities--Steamboat is perfect for your family vacation.

                      Why the Owner Chose Alpine Vista:
                      Steamboat is family-friendly, affordable, and fun. It gets the best snow in Colorado, and the town is authentic. All of this only 3 hours from Denver.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      We have supplied our property with all amenities that you would expect from a luxury vacation. The Alpenglow from our Great Room window is SPECTACULAR! The steam showers in each master suite are fantastic. We are close enough to Gondola Square to walk (10-15 minutes). The free town shuttle bus stops right in from of our house, so there is never a need to walk to the lifts.
