Recent Southwest reviews

  • Nice, clean, centrally located home

    "The home was super clean and well equipped. The owners were more than friendly and accommodating. It was in a nice, central location and walking distance to downtown Durango. We were able to take day trips into Utah etc. Would definitely stay at this home again. :)"

  • Great Location for Rental Home

    "I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to visit Crested Butte. The home was an easy walk (five minutes) to the restaurants and shops on the main strip in town so we never had to use our car unless we were headed to the mountain. When we arrived the home was very clean and there were plenty of linens for everyone in our party. If we were to visit Crested Butte again we would definitely stay here."

  • Durango property review

    "We recently were in Durango for a family wedding. Our group of 10 adults and 1 baby stayed at this house and could not have been happier with the accommodations. The house had everything we needed for our extended stay and was large enough that we were able to spread out. We especially enjoyed the large kitchen and media room. Those who wanted to stay up late playing games (found in the large game closet) could do so while those who wanted to go to bed could do so without being kept awake! The location was great--close to everything we wanted to do. The owners were easy to deal with-- answering all e-mails quickly. My only complaint is that the driveway was a little tricky to maneuver--especially in the dark and after having a cocktail at any of Durango's excellent restaurants! But, the accommodations well made up for that inconvenience."

  • Beautiful Home, Ideal Location

    "This home is absolutely beautiful, well maintained, perfect location for skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, sightseeing, hot springs, shopping, very quiet "stay-at-home" get-away. Views are spectacular! Owners went out of way to stock gourmet kitchen for cooking with everything you need to cook with and entertain. Realtor/managers are great about renting, very trustworthy, immediate response with questions. There is a huge amount of room for 5 people or 3 couples, could easily accommodate more. Woods setting is quiet, beautiful, absolutely idyllic; wild turkeys, red foxes. Great choice year round, will return! It was difficult to go out and do things because house and setting were too lovely to leave. Owners spared no expense at beautiful furnishings! Many Thanks!"
