Recent Southwest reviews

  • A great place to create lifelong memories.

    "A beautiful home nestled nicely along a ravine. We were greeted by wildlife every morning. 35 minutes to Wolf Creek and 5 minutes to everything you could need (Groceries, Dining, Coffee, Etc.) The hot tub was a nice treatment at the end of a day snowboarding, the fireplace kept us toasty and the kitchen had all we needed to make our Thanksgiving Meal. Ron was very helpful and he keeps the house extremely clean. Go enjoy this wonderful home. Warmest Regards, Texan Visitors"

  • 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!"

  • Spectacular!

    "I cannot say enough great things about this cabin. I suppose saying that this is the third year in a row we have stayed here should tell you how much we love it. The owners are two amazing people that I'd like to say we call friends now - okay, maybe just once a year friends but that I still felt like I was coming home when we made this year's visit. The cabin itself is great - well laid out, spacious, great kitchen, comfortable. The owners make sure that all the thoughtful, personable touches are there for you. The area itself is full of great drives, neat little towns, the gorgeous Blue Mesa Reservoir - I could go on and on. And the view while sitting on the deck is one of my most favorite in the world. I can (and have!) sit there for hours perfectly peaceful & content. Seeing deer from every window and all across the property many times a day, having a couple of elk wander by, watching two golden eagles soar over the mesa - I'd give this place more than five stars if I could. Thank you, Joyce and Mary Beth for sharing this great place with us."
