LOCATION: Winterhaus is in Vail (5 minutes to Vail Village). It is located in a desirable East Vail neighborhood. Free Town Shuttle stops every 15 minutes during peak times.

Address: 4094 B Lupine Drive Vail CO 81657 (detailed directions would be sent to you 2-3 days prior to arrival.)

PRIVACY: Winterhaus Guests experience privacy, without "issues" associated with condos or multi-unit dwellings.

INTERIOR: This is a "functional" home. The interior is modern, clean & uncluttered. This home is not a 5 star hotel.

Be realistic about the level of attention, service /amenities you desire. If you desire concierge services, a valet, bellman or luggage storage, bath amenities, or on-site maintenance, we suggest booking a HOTEL. There are many terrific hotels in Vail to provide these services which we do not provide.

THE RENTAL PROCESS- If your requested dates are available and pricing is acceptable, we will email a Rental Contract/Agreement. Make sure your request includes an accurate guest count and and desired services or extras. Once received, you will be emailed a custom quote for a maximum of 8 adults. Contact Aileen directly for the lowest rate which will exclude most service fees.

RATE REDUCTION: If you desire a shorter stay or last minute booking with large rate reduction, just ask Aileen- 303 437-0061

LOCATION: Extremely close to the town shuttle stop (1 min or less), trailheads, skiing & hiking.

MEDIA/TV: Do not consider this home if you wish to watch major sporting events. The TV's are located in the main kitchen/living area and also in 2 of the 4 bedrooms. (lower level media area seats 6 guests). There are many options in Vail Village to view events on larger TV's.

LINENS: Towels, duvet covers, sheets are nice quality. Duvet covers, sheets, mattress cover and pillow protectors are laundered after each guest departure. ("musty bedcoverings" don't exist in this home)

LAUNDRY EQUIPMENT: Provided at no extra charge to guests staying 8 + nights. For shorter stays, laundry can be activated with a fee.

AVAILABILITY: The Winterhaus calendar is updated daily.

Check-in- 4 PM
Check out 10 AM
Your "exit cleaning" is included in the quote. (cost is $160-$265). Mid-stay towel exchange or extra housekeeping can be arranged for a fee. If you wish to occupy the home beyond 10 AM check-out, please request a later departure at least 5 days in advance. If we can accommodate you, an extra fee may apply. Early check-in will be based on availability on the day of arrival.
For liability reasons, maids are unable to service the home if guests, or their belongings, are stored inside or outside the property. Failure to depart by the specified check-out time will result in a ONE NIGHT PENALTY charge.

MOVING "PARTS"- If an appliance or media equipment malfunctions, we'll make an effort to remedy the issue within 48 hours. We are unable to guarantee immediate repair, service, or replacement for the following items: TV, Internet router, fireplace, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, washer/dryer, water heater, refrigerator, garbage disposal, boot dryer, iron, humidifier, heaters, fan, heated mattress pads, remote controls, lightbulbs, lamps, microwave, jetted tub or blowdryers.

MAINTENANCE: This is NOT a new home. If guests discover (or cause) maintenance issues such as a carpet stain, chipped grout, scratched floor, leaky faucet, or other minor issues, we will schedule repairs between guest stays for the least amount of disruption. This is your vacation, so we schedule minor repairs when guests have departed.

HINT #1: When sifting through profiles, READ descriptions thoroughly to know WHERE you're booking. Call if you must remain within a specific budget so we can send you a custom quote.

HINT#2: FREE "Town Shuttle" is what distinguishes Vail from many ski resorts. ALL homes, located on the Vail town shuttle route have a Vail zip code (81657). Parking is $35 a day in the Village. Most guests use the town shuttle, since parking is limited. (Some properties have a 15 min. walk to the free shuttle stop).

HINT #3: Vail Village is has a European charm. If you're considering a rental home in the "Vail Valley" region, VRBO/HomeAway lists homes under "VAIL" but infact they may be 50 miles away from Vail Village.

HINT #4: How do the photos grab you? Some listings hide bathroom & bedroom photos. (ask for additional photos if they are excluded). Be comfortable with the layout of the home you rent.

HINT #5 Guest Reviews:
A "NO REVIEW" designation usually indicates that the home owner has omitted reviews due to negative feedback. VRBO only gives owners an "all or nothing" review option.
