Recent Southwest property reviews

  • Fantastic house and location

    "We recently stayed at this beautiful home and the descriptions and great reviews were spot on. We had 8 adults and 3 young children and there were more than enough beds and plenty of room in the 3 living areas. The kitchen is huge and was great for making all our of our meals. The location of this home and views from the deck may be thes best part of this great vacation home. Located only 5 or so minutes from downtown Pagosa the 3 acre lot makes the views incredible. The hot tub is a bonus as is the large driveway with plenty of parking for vehicles and all of our 4 wheelers. I would highly recommend this vacation rentan to anyone!"

  • A Real Gem!

    "We loved out time in Crested Butte and at Air Conditioned. We are a family of five, three of us are still quite small, and this place suited us perfectly. While not very big, the space is utilized so well, and the accommodation so well appointed, you won't miss more space. We were particularly impressed with how stocked the kitchen is, and how well the space is designed. The owners were so helpful, doing research to help us find the right hiking and biking trails for our family's abilities. They even helped us get back a forgotten item important to our four legged family member's health. To top it off, the location cannot be beat, very close to Elk Street and thr west side trails! We hope to stay at Air Conditoned again and again, and think you might like it too."

This home is beautiful and well-kept, and is centrally located to Mount Crested Butte and the town itself. It is three levels and has plenty of room with spacious layouts yet cozy rooms. There are all of the amenities of home, including laundry facilities and full appliances, including dishes. We would highly recommend this home for your trip, you will not be disappointed."
