Recent Southwest reviews

  • Wonderful home, close to the slopes

    "This home was more than enough room for our family of 8. It was nice to have a garage for the vehicle. The mud room provided a nice place to take off boots, etc.. The teenagers really enjoyed hopping into the hot tub after a day on the slopes. You can walk (10 min) to the slopes but we preferred for our non-skier to drive us and drop us off. The home was very reasonable priced for the holiday season. The owners were helpful and quick to answer emails. Enjoy!"

  • Bright, clean, spacious... just perfect.

    "Amazing unit in the heart of Telluride. The location couldn't be any better. One block to the Gondola (takes you to Mountain Village) and one block to the main street in town where the best restaurants and shops are situated. Hiking trails a block away, too. The house itself is clean, bright, and beautifully remodeled. I wish I lived there! The owners are great, and were very accommodating. I can't wait to return."

  • Found the perfect place to stay! Loved staying on Mt. CB, beautiful view from the condo!

    "This condo is perfect! The view is beautiful, the condo was spotless, was well stocked with everything we needed, it is decorated really nice, exactly what we wanted for a mountain getaway (the pictures really don't do it justice, looks even nicer in person!) and the master bedroom mattress is really comfortable (I am sure the others are too, but we didn't use those). My husband and I stayed for the month of August, I had to work part of the time that I was there, the wireless connection worked perfectly. I set my ThinkPad up on the kitchen table (put a placemat under it to protect the table :) ) and enjoyed watching the hummingbirds and looking at the gorgeous mountain view while I worked. If I could stay there at least half of each year, I would! :) Jeff, the owner and Robin, the manager of the condo were great to work with. Jeff gave us lots of ideas for great hikes and things to do in the area and Robin was really quick to answer all of my questions and was friendly in her responses. I have rented from VRBO many times over the years and am very particular about where I stay and who I rent from ... I will most definitely rent this condo again and cannot wait for our next visit! Am hoping to rent it someday to try skiing Mt. CB, it is really close to the lifts and the view from the condo with everything covered in snow would have to be spectacular!"

  • Pagosa Springs and Red Paws Ranch - the BEST!

    "Juliette and Jason's studio was perfect for two overworked people who needed serious downtime! A very relaxing and cozy space - extremely comfortable and warm. We brought our own food, and it was easy to warm things up in the surprisingly well-equipped kitchen. Quiet and just a bit outside of town, and that was very nice. Easy access to Wolf Creek, cross-country skiing and only about 5 mins to town. Juliette and Jason were great hosts - very sweet animals too - and they offered restaurant and other suggestions while offering us lots of privacy. Can't wait to come back!"
