About Dayle Shames

My husband and I are private owners who live just outside of Denver. We bought this home in 2005 because of the AMAZING location. The Gore Creek sits at your feet and whether we were in the hot tub on the lower deck in the winter or sitting in a hammock on the deck in the summer, we knew we couldn't ask for more. We completely renovated the home in 2007 with every upgrade possible and then updated it again in 2017. We love offering our home to visitors. We will make sure all of your needs are attended to.

Why Dayle Shames chose West Vail

Vail is the most beautiful place in the world. This home has all the beauty of being nestled in the mountains with Gore Creek surging in the backyard and the convenience of the free shuttle bus outside your front door and convenient shopping minutes away. There is biking, tennis, golf, spas, hiking, kayaking all within a short distance to our home! All of this at affordable rates!

What makes this townhome unique

Tennis courts, playground, Cascade lifts, shopping, and restaurants are all in walking distance or use the free shuttle that picks you up just a few houses away from our front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed with our son and our 2 grandchildren this summer and had a wonderful time. The home is everything it said it was on it's listing. The beds so comfortable and the furnishings are luxurious! The kitchen was a cooking delight with every possible bowl and pot I needed. The home is tucked away right on the creek and it made us feel like we were in the middle of the woods - but all shopping, buses and activities were minutes away! The hot tub on the creek was the BEST and enjoyed every night! I had a problem with the electronic lock on the front door not locking during our stay and called the owners. There was a handyman at our door in 10 minutes with a new battery for it to take care of the problem. We will stay here again if we are lucky enough to get back to VAIL.

I would definitely book this home again. The owners are very accommodating and courteous, and their home is beautiful. Everything was very clean upon arrival - the beds are extremely comfortable, and it is just an overall great property.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples staying for a ski trip. The house was as advertised and just right for our needs; all three bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious. It was especially nice to be in a home where the kitchen had the basics in place so that cooking for ourselves was easy, when we felt like it. The bus stop was close and the grocery store a 3 minute drive. Sometimes we took a taxi back after dinner, as the buses are less frequent, and this was not a big deal, or expense. In short, everything was very comfortable and we enjoyed ourselves. We would rent the place again if we come back with a similar sized party.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 staying in this house for a ski trip. The house was exactly what we needed. Great amount of space, inviting and comfortable home, beds for everyone, easy access to skiing (the bus stops are right by the home and driving takes just a couple minutes if you choose to do that instead), stocked kitchen and grill, a private hot tub, and minutes from the supermarket for shopping. The creek runs right through the backyard and gives you a nice feeling of seclusion even though there are other houses around. The owners are also very nice and extremely accommodating. Everything was as advertised and we had a great trip. We'd be happy to stay here again next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so happy that in addition to the fabulous ski conditions, our home made your vacation that much better. We would welcome a return trip by you and your friends to Vail and most especially, our home at anytime!

A Great Place for our get together

  • 5 of 5

We had a few couples get away for an early holiday. The home was just great! So convenient, but still felt like we were in the heart of the mountains. Cozy and luxurious at the same time. Great fun in the Hot Tub!! The only thing I didn't absolutely love about the place was the silverware, too small for my taste - but the rest of the kitchen was gorgeous.Showers had great water pressure, better than my apartment. We will be back next time we are in Vail!
