Recent Southwest property reviews

  • Incredible

    "I was going to write a horrible review. Which means I was going to lie. I was going to lie because maybe I would just keep this gem of a place just for myself. But then I remembered that the owner was gracious and a pleasure to work with, responsive to questions and incredibly helpful. Our family had a great time and we look forward to visiting again."

  • Beautiful Home, Excellent Location

    "This home is beautiful, and the pictures are a perfect representation of what you'll find. It's clean, comfortable and spacious as well. In addition to the 3 bedrooms, there's a loft area with three beds. The views are spectacular. The house was stocked with everything we needed and more, including a huge selection of games and books. We enjoyed the location just outside of town, yet not as far south as South Crested Butte. If you have pets, there are convenient areas for long walks right out the door. Fishermen can access the river about a quarter mile away. And Upper Loop access for bikers and hikers is close by, too. Beth made coordinating our stay super easy. This was the perfect choice for our group of five people & one dog, and there was plenty of room for more."

  • Best ski trip ever

    "Loved Crested Butte and the condo was awesome. Great deck to watch the skiers, close to the lodge and the ski in and out capability was the best! Second best was soaking in the hot tub with a beer after a long day of skiing!"

  • practical choice for vacation in Telluride

    "This Tomboy cabin is located in Telluride town and is in easy walking distance to all major facilities(gondola, shuttle bus, restaurants). It has a well equipped kitchen stocked with all those things you hate to buy for a few days(napkins, salt, pepper etc). It was very quiet and good for sleeping. It is more "homey" than luxurious and quite spacious for 2 bedrooms"
