  • Stunningly Beautiful

    "This is a high end, luxury rental. By far the best we have experienced out of our many VRBO rentals. Where can I start. Family vacation Christmas 2014. Recently renovated with high end finishes, spacious, beautiful furnishings, numerous bathrooms. The Christmas decorations were a nice touch. Short 5 minute walk to the shuttle to get to the ski slopes. Recommend a 4wd rental car, as the roads can get quite slick when it snows. Great views from the unit, as well as the natural beauty of Vail all around you. Well stocked kitchen. Comfortable bedding. You won't be disappointed."

  • Awesome Condo

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. This was our first ski trip with our kids (ages 4 & 6) and we were looking for something in close proximity to ski school. Short of camping in a tent at the base of the gondola, we couldn't have been any closer. The condo building is pretty dated but this particular condo has been updated some, it was well laid out, with a well stocked kitchen and the funishings were comfortable and nice. There were lots of shelves, drawers & hooks all over the place to hang all of our coats and gear. The space was very well thought out. One of the aspects of the condo that we enjoyed the most were the windows around three sides of the living room. This really opened up the space and made for a pretty view. We've already started talking about our next trip and we hope to rent this same condo again."

  • Exceptional. "Quality" appreciating ski buddies, in our 70's, LOVED it.

    "LOCATION: 2 min. walk to bus stop. 4 min. walk to fully equipped Vail Racket Club with 2 large hot tubs. No $25 parking charges for us. Quick bus ride to slopes. QUALITY: "High end" newly upgraded kitchen and home finishings. Heated master bedroom floors, more drawer and builtin closet storage than in our 4200 Sq. foot home in Bellevue. Fully equipped kitchen LOTS of cookware. After a trip to Costco, we ended up eating in, 5 out of 7 nights because of the ambiance and ease of it all, to say nothing of the cost savings and fun we had. TOTAL ATTENTION TO DETAILS: Garage door code set personalized to our phone number, numerous light switches labeled, Information book including pictures and operation instructions."

  • Stay, Snow, Ski, and Sun was Awesome

    "We stayed here recently in March 2015. In addition to the fabulous weather we had, the accommodations added to a stress-free skiing vacation. The condo had everything we needed (and is close to come restaurants too.) The Owner has a binder with that kind of info. We skied at both Beaver Creek and Vail while we stayed there. In the evenings, the huge TV in the living room was awesome for catching some NCAA March Madness. This was not my first time staying here - so course of we would stay here again! Its always great here. Super location; good for both big and small group sizes. "Sometimes it's all about the win, sometimes it's about the skiing." -Bode Miller"

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.
