Recent Southwest reviews

  • Pleasant and comfortable stay

    "Beautifully decorated yet comfortable. I chose this condo specifically because the living room had leather sofa and love seat. Lovely views. Good location to grocery store and restaurants. Appreciated the little touches such as the boot tray under the bench in the foyer. Also have to mention that it was extremely clean (unlike last VRBO rental we tried). Owners pleasant and really appreciated the ease of making and paying for the reservation."

  • Bright, clean, spacious... just perfect.

    "Amazing unit in the heart of Telluride. The location couldn't be any better. One block to the Gondola (takes you to Mountain Village) and one block to the main street in town where the best restaurants and shops are situated. Hiking trails a block away, too. The house itself is clean, bright, and beautifully remodeled. I wish I lived there! The owners are great, and were very accommodating. I can't wait to return."

  • Loved it!

    "We stayed here for four nights over Spring Break. As there were only three of us, it was a perfect size. The use of space is amazing, it's a cozy little house but it never feels too small. There is no closet space in the master, and we made it work by using the under the stairs storage. There is plenty of space in the closet upstairs. Beds and linens were very comfortable, we loved the heated floors, and the house is decorated beautifully. It's light and bright with lots of windows to enjoy the great view of the Butte. We walked to dinner every night, and it is located in a great spot. The shuttle is very close, yet the house is far away enough from Gothic Rd that you don't hear any traffic noise. We had a great stay!"

  • A Fall Stay at the foot hills of the San Jaun Mountians

    "Four of us stayed here for several nights in October and November. It is our second year for using the cabin, bunkhouse, and grounds as a base camp for our outdoor activities. When not in the San Juan's we took advantage of the local restaurants of Mancos and Durango; shopping in Cortez and Durango; and the Micro-brewery in Mancos. Rollin and the Local neighbors were very accommodating. Rollin came by about every other day to make sure all was well. We look forward to a third year in this 5 star cabin and have recommended it to our friends."
