  • A Fabulous Getaway

    "We just got back from a wonderful weekend at Casa del Sol and our expectations were thoroughly exceeded. The property is very well appointed. My wife and I didn't lack a thing. The owner is very friendly and easy to work with. We enjoyed the turkeys, the spectacular views, and serenity. This place truly recharges the batteries. Casa del Sol is good for your soul."

  • Best View in Pagosa

    "We keep coming back to the Sunshine condo which has all the comforts of home with a full kitchen, spacious living room and bedrooms. The deck has a primo view of the golf course and is great for balloon and storm watching. Sara and Brian are always welcoming and very helpful. Everything in Pagosa Springs is close. We love the great outdoors so Pagosa is the place to go and wonderful Durango is only an hour west."

  • A great getaway with family.

    "We drove in late at night and woke up to amazing views of the mountains. We had so much fun. There are so many things to do to keep a family busy. We had my mom and brother and his family, total of 9 people with us. The condo was big enough for all of us, it is also well stocked with everything you need to cook meals for a family. The kids loved being able to walk out the back door and hike up the mountain. There are lots of activities to do around the area. If you are there in the summer, we highly recommend the Alpine Slide and the Durango/Silverton Train. Thank you for allowing us to rent your place for a week."

  • Frequent VRBO renter across Colorado

    "Awesome place! Stayed here my family for a week and loved it. Having been to Telluride before, I knew the value of being close the gondola station and Mountain Village grocery store. Both are literally across the street. This was summer time, so there was also bike-in/bike-out access for mountain biking on the MV trails. Super convenient for all things Mountain Village and Telluride. Great views from inside the condo and of course the balcony. Lots of room to sit outside with multiple people. Tons of common area space inside and nice open floorplan. Great showers!! All around, a really nicely furnished place. The right balance of 'modern-mountain' decor. It wasn't overly done with antlers and flannels or any try-to-hard styles, nor wasn't overly creative modern. Felt very appropriate for a mountain town, but still up to date, classy and comfortable. One thing to note - the 3rd bedroom is more of a den. There was plenty of room for the queen bed and didn't feel cramped at all, but there isn't a window. This wasn't a problem, since the person sleeping in there liked having the doors open (and having the cool air and views from the living room). But if you have kids that could be afraid of being closed up in a room without windows or anything, it just something to be aware of. Now if you like sleeping in full darkness, this would be a great room for you then!! Awesome place. Lots of room (we had up to 6 people staying at one point) and extremely convenient. Extremely. Also, one of the few places available for rent that allows dogs! The folks that facilitated the rental and our check-in process were extremely helpful and easy to reach. For all my future trips to Telluride, I'll be looking back here first!"
