HINT #1: When sifting through profiles, READ descriptions thoroughly to know what you're booking. Call or email us if you must remain within a specific budget and we can make a custom quote for you.

HINT #4: How do the photos grab you? Some listings hide bathroom / bedroom photos. (ask for more photos if they have been excluded). Are you comfortable with the layout of the home you choose to rent?

HINT #5 Guest Reviews:

On VRBO there is a property detail designating the # of years a property has been listed on VRBO/Home Away. Property listing which indicates "NO REVIEWS", usually indicates a home owner has omitted reviews due to negative reviews. VRBO gives owners an "all or nothing" option for reviews. We view a bad review as a way to make future improvements.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We booked Winterhouse for girls weekend. It was a blast! The home is cozy

without being crowded and we loved the easy access to Vail. The bus stop was

just outside the door and everyone could set their own schedule for going to

the slopes. The complimentary town shuttle is also great because it runs until 2pm, so we didn't have to cut our time at the wine bar short! The bedding was divine. The one downside to Winterhouse is that it can't comfortably sleep more than 9 people and we usually like to have 12 ladies.

New Years Eve in Vail 2016/2017

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house over the New Years holiday. I have two girls and we really enjoyed the house. The home was spacious and suited our modern families needs. Location is a 5-7 minutes or so to the main village, which made it close but not too close. The house was furnished with most everything one could ask for when staying in a place like this rental. I would recommend the house to anyone.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

This house is so lovely and the flowers were in full bloom in Vail Village. The sound of the creek was a great background "noise" throughout our stay.

We've rented and enjoyed this home in the past, so we could not pass up a last minute SALE! The only drawback was that the owners do not accept pets, so we had to leave our dogs behind.

We LOVE this Vail Village location

  • 5 of 5

We loved having two payment options (check or credit card)

Beware... we searched for a home in "Vail", but the search on VRBO showed rentals 37 miles away from Vail. Only after some research we realized this home is in Vail. Aileen, the owner, was friendly and accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many properties online but this house is our favorite. The owner was responsive, professional and amenable to my "particular" needs.

As in the VRBO description, this home feels like a top rated hotel. The sheets and bed coverings are decadent and our bed was extremely comfortable. We spent an afternoon on the patio which is sunny, surrounded by aspen trees with the Gore Creek close by. We enjoyed an evening in Vail Village and enjoyed being driven, both directions, on the convenient town shuttle. This place is a hidden gem.

Great place for a ski group!

  • 5 of 5

With a close bus stop and four bedrooms (the living room/bedroom has a door) this was a great space for a group of friends to relax and enjoy all Vail has to offer. Vail is a favorite ski resort and this is the rental our group will be returning to!
