LOCATION: Winterhaus is in the Town of Vail and a 5 min. drive to Vail Village and is located in a desirable East Vail neighborhood. Free Vail Town Shuttle stops every 15-20 minutes during peak times.

PRIVACY: Winterhaus Guests experience privacy, with no issues associated with condos or multi-unit dwellings.

INTERIOR: This is a "functional" home. The interior is modern, clean, uncluttered. This home is not the quality of a 5 star resort.

Be realistic about the level of attention, service /amenities you desire. This home has been renovated, however, if you desire a new residence, concierge services, valet, bellmen, bath amenities, on-site maintenance, we suggest booking a FULL SERVICE HOTEL. There are many nice hotels in Vail.

THE RENTAL PROCESS- If your requested dates are available and pricing is acceptable, please request a Rental Agreement. Make sure your reservation request includes an accurate guest count and your desired services/extras. Once received you will be emailed a custom quote for a maximum of 8 adult guests.

LOCATION: Extremely close to the town shuttle stop, trailheads, skiing, hiking.

MEDIA/TV: Do not consider this home if you wish to watch major sporting events. The TV's are located in 2 of 3 bedrooms, one which seats 6 guests There are options in Vail Village to view events on larger TV's.

LINENS: Towels, duvet covers, sheets are high quality. Duvet covers, sheets, mattress cover and pillow protectors are laundered after each guest departure.

LAUNDRY EQUIPMENT: Provided at no extra charge to guests staying 5 (or more) nights. For short stays, laundry equipment can be activated for a fee.

AVAILABILITY: For your convenience, the Winterhaus calendar is updated daily.

MAID SERVICE/CHECK-OUT: Your "exit cleaning" is included in your quote. (price range is between $160-$260). Mid-stay towel exchange or extra housekeeping services can be arranged for a fee. If you wish to stay in the home beyond 10 AM check-out time, please request a later departure time at least 48 hours in advance. An additional cost may apply. For liability reasons, maids and property management are unable to begin services while guests, or their belongings, remain inside the home. Failure to depart by the specified check-out time will result in a ONE NIGHT PENALTY charge, PLUS additional management fees.

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 to conduct the least amount of disruption. We understand this is your vacation, so we schedule minor repairs when guests are not occupying the home.

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#2: FREE "Town Shuttle" is what distinguishes Vail from other resorts. ALL houses, located on the Vail town shuttle route have a Vail zip code (81657). Parking is $35 a day to park in Vail Village lot. Most guests use the town shuttle b/c parking is limited. (Some properties have a 15 min. walk to closest shuttle stop).

HINT #3: Vail Village is has a unique, European charm. If you're considering a rental home in the "Vail Valley" region, VRBO lists Vail homes listed as far as 46 miles away from Vail Village.

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 reason for improvement.
