  • A home away from home - Diane was helpful, thoughtful and honest!

    "Hi, I just got back to Brisbane, Australia after spending the last 2 weeks staying at Diane and Bill's condo with friends. It exceeded my expectations and was warm, clean, spacious and homely. Thanks for having me! Tony."

  • Dream Vacation!

    "Our family of 6 (2 adults, a 17 year old, and 12 year old triplets) vacationed at Edelweiss #8 for a week this summer. The owners sent all the information we needed in advance, making our arrival smooth even though it was late at night. The condo was perfect for our family - a great layout, comfortable, and well-stocked. We even used the boot dryers after climbing up a waterfall! The hummingbirds and marmots right outside the back door provided endless entertainment, and the easy access to hiking and resort activities kept everyone happy. We drove up to Silverton a few times, toured the James Ranch (highly recommend it, stay for a burger and ice cream!), shopped/played at the Rec Center in Durango one day, and had one really nice dinner at the Sow's Ear. It was the perfect mix of outdoor activities during the day and indoor game-playing/movie-watching/family-cocooning in the evening, so great that I cried all the way out of the mountains on our way home! The icing on the cake was that the cleaning crew found and mailed our son's cell phone back to us - the kind of personal touch we truly appreciate. We can't wait to go back!"

  • Excellent Location for walking downtown

    "Ideal location as the unit is in the downtown shopping/dining district, 1 block from the gondola to access Mountain Village, 2 blocks to Town Park music venue, and 1 block to the ski area. Nice kitchen for preparing meals, and the second bedroom has its own bathroom. I found the bedrooms quiet during the night even though we were near the action of downtown. I would rent this unit again."

  • Great Telluride/Mountain Village Cabin

    "Great cabin - really great views and the river running beneath was awesome - nice and soothing. We had two families - 7 people in all - and we could have had a few more folks with us. Walking distance to Mountain Village - and we enjoyed the Pizza place and the pub and the free Gondola rides into Telluride! The only things we didn't like - the downstairs Blue Ray player didn't work and the grill ran out of propane - but we told the property manager about it and hopefully those two items will be remedied for the next visitors."
