Recent Vail reviews

  • Cozy, comfortable condo in great location

    "Our family of four (2 adults, 2 teenagers) stayed in this condo the week between Christmas and New Year's, and found it to be everything the previous reviewers indicated. The condo was light, clean, comfortable, well equipped, with terrific views, and the location was so perfect to everything - we were easy walking distance from ski lockers, restaurants, and shops. Walking into the condo did feel like coming into someone's home versus a rental - we have had experiences where basic things like soap in the bathrooms or kleenex were not provided. This was definitely not the case in this condo. There were sturdy, working humidifiers in each room, plenty of firewood, cooking oils, spices, pots, pans, ziploc bags, foil, and plastic wrap, as well as full-sized bars of soap in the bathroom, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, extra toilet paper and kleenex stocked in the laundry area. Even a sewing kit with the right colored thread was there, which I gratefully found when a top I packed needed immediate mending. The internet connection worked great for our iPhones and iPads, but we could not get our laptop computers to connect. The condo was spacious and light, and there was plenty of space for all of us - again, definitely not always the case in other rentals we've had in Vail. The ski locker in town was super convenient for storing skis and saving the hassle of lugging skis, poles, and boots back and forth every day. Beds were comfortable, and the welcome bottle of wine definitely appreciated. Warning: Assigned parking spot in the garage is super narrow, so parking our large SUV in the space was virtually impossible with a vehicle on one side and a pillar on the other. Outside parking was an option, but daily snowfall made it a less attractive one. Owner was responsive and easy to contact. All in all, we loved our stay in this unit, and would definitely plan to rent it again for our next trip to Vail."

  • Best Value We have Found

    "We have a group of 4 couples that have stayed for a week in this fantastic home the past 3 years! The house is always clean and supplied as though we lived in it. The kitchen is well stocked and we easily prepare meals for 8 with all of the glasses, dishes, etc. Beds are comfortable, the view is awesome from the deck. The location is excellent. It is an easy 3 block walk to the Charter Sports rental shop along Gore Creek. The shop is fantastic for rentals: easy to work with, new equipment, friendly staff. They will store all the gear so no hassle in hauling it. Larry and Julie are so easy to communicate with. Having looked at other houses in the area... we believe this is truly the best overall value in Cascade."

  • Beyond Expectations!

    "I recently hosted a group of ten for a few days of skiing and a super bowl party. The owner, Mallory, as well as the house manager, Sheri, were both beyond accommodating and assured our every need was met...it was five star service! The house was beautiful and exactly as depicted in the images. The entire experience from A to Z was terrific and I would have no hesitations to rent the condo again...in fact my guests have already said if do Vail for annual trip again next year there is no reason to look anywhere else."

  • Spacious, Upscale, Convenient...

    "This place feels more like a beautiful home than a rental property. The comfortable living areas are tastefully done and quite large, including a big dining table, well appointed chef's kitchen and a lovely fireplace. I loved all of windows in the main room that provide great views and lots of natural light. There is a convenient back entrance from the parking area and a front entrance through a pretty patio. The private hot tub is well maintained as is the rest of the unit. It's very convenient to the bus stop, making it easy to get to and from the slopes, restaurants, spas and shopping. Our stay was comfortable and hassle-free."

Vail Travel Tips

The municipality of Vail, Colorado, was originally built as a base village for the Vail Ski Resort but has since grown to become a popular mountain getaway. While the town experiences warm summers, the winters are cold due to its Rocky Mountain location and receives an average of 200 inches of snow per season - making it a ski haven.

Vail Attractions

Blue Sky Basin is an expansion of Vail Ski Resort and features chairlifts taking skiers and snowboarders up Vail Mountain. This natural ski experience boasts a 1,900-foot vertical drop with wide, clear-cut runs. The mountain has more than 5,200 acres of downhill and cross-country trails and is considered one of the best in the world.

Vail isn't just for winter vacations, you can also stay when the weather's warm and check out Gore Creek Fly Fishing. Guided fly fishing trips are available and a trip will take you down numerous rivers including Eagle River, Gore Creek, the Colorado River, the Roaring Fork River and the Yampa River. Fly fishing in Vail is some of the best you can find in the area and is an ideal activity for families and friends visiting the area.

Adventure Ridge is open during summer and winter and offers several activities fit for the whole family. There are also hiking and mountain biking opportunities as well as scenic views. Take a scenic gondola ride up the mountain and gaze at the views along the way. You can go tubing in the winter and zip line in the summer. The ZipLine features four lines that are 1,200 feet long and send you flying through the air at 10,000 feet. There's also a kid's zipline for young thrill seekers looking for adventure during their stay in Vail. Kids also have access to a climbing wall, rebounding trampoline and a ropes course made just for them. Other winter activities at Adventure Ridge include showshoeing, snowmobiling and ski biking.

The Betty Ford Alpine Gardens are the world's highest botanical garden with an altitude of 8,200 feet. The gardens are open year round, but you'll want to visit during the warmer months of the year for peak flower season. When you visit the gardens you can see innovative exhibits, programs, interpretations and media. You will get to see the Children's Garden, Schoolhouse Garden, Mountain Perennial Garden, Mountain Meditation Garden and the Alpine Rock Garden.

Explore your surroundings with a walk on the Vail Recreation Path. This 15-mile paved trail takes you throughout town and is located parallel to the golf course. There are 35,000 acres that surround the path.
