About Karla Elinoff

Karla Elinoff purchased this House in 2007
Why Karla Elinoff chose Telluride Ski Resort
The 'Crystal' are the only free standing homes in the village core with ski-in, ski-out access. Our large, high efficiency boiler means you never run out of hot water, even after 14 showers. We even have a hot water refill spigot at the hot tub so that you can refill with hot water instead of waiting for the hot tub to get up to tempurature.
What makes this House unique
Only a few steps to the Peaks' ski run and your private, ski-valet, spa and Fitness Center. Apres ski with huge views and live music. There is no better location for village core amenities and ski-in, ski-out access. Laundry room with two, front-load washers and dryers.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We enjoyed the unit and the responsiveness of the owner was excellent!
We traveled with a group of 11 people which included 5 couples. The two “loft” areas slept fine but don’t include the same privacy that comes with a bedroom. Overall we made all of it work and the inclusion of lift ticket passes made this a wonderful place. I would recommend staying here.
Great ski valet, lots of stairs, condo needs updating
Lesson learned to read through all the reviews before booking. I would reiterate prior comments. It's NOT actually ski-in, ski-out to the condo. Rather, it's ski-in, ski-out to the valet service, but then another 10 minute schlep uphill to the condo. Also, read the fine print on advertised access to the Peaks pools, sauna and hot tubs -- it costs an extra $30 per adult per day for this access. We found owners' policy of one extra roll of toilet paper per bathroom per stay unbelievably chintzy to cover a group of 8 for a week. The whole condo needs updating (holes in downstairs bedroom sheets, trip hazard rugs, etc.)
Full disclosure, the owners gave us as tenants low scores for "house rules," which were not published.
Despite the above we will remember that: Telluride skiing is delightful. The kids loved the steep loft. The Peaks ski valet service + medallions are amazing.
Loved Location & The Peaks
We were thrilled with the location, despite the many steps. The Peak's ski concierge and ski medallions really improved our skiing experience. Also, it was only a short walk to the gondola, which our non-skiers rode to Telluride for shopping, lunch, and some sledding at Town Park. The house accommodated our large group and was well worth the rental price. Although the sleeper sofa mattresses were comfortable, we wished the open (no doors) dens had more privacy. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner, but we could have used some storage containers for our left-overs. The double washer/dryers were appreciated. Our group would definitely stay at this house again on our next ski trip.
Spacious but needs some upkeep
The home worked out fine for our group of 2 families but overall it could use some general maintenance to bring it to par with other places we’ve stayed in the area. The home is showing it’s wear as a rental over the years and could benefit from an end of season refresher (new paint throughout, replacement of broken /cracked tiles, stretching and cleaning of carpet, de-cluttering of closets and unnecessary furniture). The hike downhill /uphill to and from the Peaks for ski equipment was more than we expected. If you were staying at the Peaks, I’d call it “ski-in, ski-out” but the hike to and from the house makes it less so. Not an issue for summer renters as the walk to the village center isn’t bad. We really enjoyed the hot tub at the end of each day and the 2 ski medallions were definitely a nice perk!
Crystal 14 fit our needs. With 10 people, we needed space. The kitchen was well stocked. The owners responded quickly to our needs during the week. The ski medallions were a great addition to the vacation. The view from the deck is wonderful.
I would not label the property ski in, ski out. There is a short walk to the slopes. The ski access is through the Peaks resort.
Family time for wedding was relaxing and spacious for our needs.
The unit was perfect for our needs and owner was very quick to respond to any and all questions we had. We would definitely go back. Thank you.
Fabulous location adjacent to the Mountain Village' pedestrian core.
