Recent Southwest reviews

  • "The Blue House" is beautiful!

    "We liked everything about the house. It is clean, well-cared for walking distance to town. The patio and yard are very spacious and quiet. The beds are comfortable, as is the living room. The bathrooms have been fully renovated, like the rest of the house. It appears that everyone in town knows the house as "The Blue House". You can't go wrong staying here."

  • Best view in Crested Butte - no joke!

    "Our family stayed here for two weeks in August and we so happy to have stayed at Paradise Cabin. The view blows you away as soon as you walk in the door. Just incredible, the VRBO listing can't possibly capture it accurately. The beds were very comfortable, the home was small but laid out so well, that it didn't feel that way. We had everything we needed. I was worried that the steep stairs would be dangerous for our 4 and 6 year olds, but it was fine. Younger kids might have a problem with them as the railing is high and the stairs are open on both sides. Overall, Paradise Cabin was completely perfect for us and our two small kids. We spent most of the time outside on the deck anyway! We will definitely stay here again!"

  • Excellent Ski Vacation

    "You could not find a better location in Telluride. This condo is literally right above the Coonskin lift. Besides the great location, the condo is well layed out and has everything you need for a great ski vacation. This was my first time skiing in Telluride and I look forward to going back and staying at this location again in the future."

  • Great Fall Colors in Telluride

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful first trip to Telluride after a snowfall on the peaks and with brilliant fall colors on the slopes! The unit was tastefully decorated, very sunny with views in 3 directions, and well stocked with everything we needed. The property managers were very helpful, friendly, and went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay with them. The property is very well maintained and very convenient. We did hiking, mountain biking, had an awesome glider flight with Glider Bob, a must do!"
