Recent Southwest reviews

  • Loved the cabin and the location

    "Our stay at the Primrose cabin was exceptional. It's in a beautiful location and just 6 miles from Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory). So many cabins have one or two beds and then a pull-out, but this has three very comfortable beds. The living area is bright and I LOVE the sunroom. The cabin is beautifully decorated and I felt quite at home there. The property manager was easy to contact and very accommodating. Thank you!"

  • Excellent for adult couples -- like a model home

    "There were two adult couples in our group. We were hoping for a low-children exposure experience. This place delivered! It's a beautiful home, very clean, both bedrooms comfortable and separate bathrooms. It's a duplex but the neighbors were very quiet. It's directly on the golf course but for some reason not very busy. Faces other rental-type properties for time shares which catered to families but not a problem with noise at all. This place is on a cul-de-sac sort of so it's secluded. The garage was great for our motorcycles and was very clean. The kitchen was stocked very well with dishes, cooking equipment, even some pantry items. Only down side I would say it the internet is not wireless and the open internet we found was painfully slow. There is no AC in the unit but we found that to be fairly standard for Pagosa Springs and with windows open it was cool in the evenings. Also, they don't accept any form of electronic payment, which was a little strange we thought and a little inconvenient. The agent was great, very responsive, and helpful with suggestions on places to eat, things to do (which are a ton.) The location of the home is great! Very close to grocery, gas, many places to eat and it's a short couple of miles from downtown. We would highly recommend this rental and would come back. Would also work with the agent on her many other properties."

  • Spring break in Pagosa

    "Perfect getaway for spring skiing at Wolf Creek. Very comfortable accommodations with a well stocked kitchen. Plenty of space for a family of four to spread out and relax after a day on the mountain. Very close to grocery store and restaurants."

  • We didn't want to leave

    "We spent a couple of nights at the Hound Dog (HD) Ranch and really didn't want to leave. Francie, the owner, is so nice and we fell in love with the 4 hound dogs living there as well. Our two labradors had an amazing vacation playing with their new friends in the completely fenced, dog safe environment. Francie was so gracious with us, children, dogs and all. Our kids are 12 and 13, which can be a hard to please age. They were in love at first site with the open space, horses, hounds, hot tub and the cabin. The kids just kept thanking us. It was such a nice break. The cabin is lovely, very cozy and homey. I love having the kitchen and all of the comforts of home in such a gorgeous location. We were about 20 minutes from the center of Durango and about 35 minutes from Mesa Verde and we're well entertained. The best part of the vacation was having the kids be so excited to get back to the cabin for more family time."
