We have enjoyed our clean, comfortable,cozy retreat and hope you will, too. It is a second floor unit (Building 7, Unit 8) with the bedroom facing Gore Creek and living room with a mountain view, facing the new park. It is 576 square feet with a king bed and half-bath in the master, and full bath in hall. There is a queen sofa sleeper with memory foam topper in the living room. Full kitchen with dining room table that seats 4 and wood burning fireplace in living room. There is a deck off the master and porch off the living room.
You will be in a lovely 300-unit complex remodeled in November 2004. The Racquet Club has a state-of-the-art fitness center (2800 sq. ft) with Cybex machines, year-round 25 meter outdoor heated pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, aerobic, yoga and pilates classes, and 9 outdoor tennis courts, including 3 clay courts. Massage and personal training are available for a fee. There is a $20 per person per day charge to use the facility, $10 for children 14 and under. My rental agreement includes a punch card with 5 complimentary visits. Blu's, a restaurant and bar, moved to the property from Vail Village and is an excellent choice for breakfast or dinner.
I like to keep staples, such as sugar, coffee, tea, hot chocolate and olive oil on hand, as well as board games and a few DVDs. For shopping, there is a small but fully stocked grocery store nearby and large markets in Dillon and West Vail. Relax by the fire and access hi-speed internet. There is a coin-operated laundry room in the building. Please note that this condo has not been remodeled since it was built in the late 1970s. Everything is in working order and repairs have been made as necessary. For example, the refrigerator and toilets have been replaced. It has more of a 'cabin' type of feel to it. So please check photos carefully and if you want something more upscale, you probably want to look elsewhere. I try to emphasize comfort and convenience and have a comfortable bed, DVD collection, board games and basic kitchen supplies.
East Vail is a quiet, heavily wooded, mostly residential area considered desirable if you like to be away from the hustle and bustle in Vail - yet convenient to world-class skiing. In the summer, there is plentiful hiking and biking, tennis drills and lessons, as well as many other activities. Bighorn Park is in walking distance. For skiing, there is a free bus that stops right in front of the condo complex and runs every 15 minutes during the prime ski season. It takes 15-20 minutes to get to the transportation center at Vail Village. From there, you walk over the covered bridge to Gondola One. You can easily take another free bus to Golden Peak or Lionshead from the transportation center.
This condo is rented directly through me and not through the resort. Therefore, the front desk, concierge, and lobby amenities are not available for use. You would contact me for key handling, housekeeping and maintenance and anything that comes up. I will provide a detailed description of services and guidelines.

About the owner: I grew up on the east coast and have been living in Denver for about 30 years. Since then I have been enjoying the mountains--skiing, hiking and biking. I have been coming up to the Racquet Club with friends and was lucky to purchase my own unit. I work in Denver and come up here whenever I can.
Why the Owner Chose Vail Racquet Club: I love the quiet of East Vail with easy access to Vail mountain and the town of Vail. It is also an easy drive from Denver. I happen to be a tennis player and having the tennis courts, pool and work-out facility is a huge plus for me.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: I love easy access to hiking and biking, the convenience of the bus for skiing and the ambience of the Racquet Club.
