Location! Location! Location!

IMAGINE THIS! Arrive at the condo, park your auto in the local parking lot, you won't be needing it the rest of your vacation.

Wake up 1 hour before the lifts open, have breakfast, then walk across the street to the Gold Peak lift for a fast uphill ride to the the top of Vail Mountain and Vail's famous back bowls. If you need a break, or want to have lunch at the condo, no problem, your just yards away from the lift. At the end of the ski day stop at the condo, clean up, and then head to town (1 block walk) for après ski. After après ski, head back to the condo for a short nap and then its back to town for dinner and entertainment. If your ready for a night in, enjoy your favorite TV programs or DVD's on the large screen tv. This is what a ski vacation should be!

The condo is located far enough from the Village core that the environment is quiet and peaceful.

About Don Geiser

Our family has skied Vail since 1969. We have owned homes less than 2 miles from the ski slopes and enjoyed them, however the hassle of going to and from the slopes for skiing and to enjoy the restaurants, finally gave way to our purchasing a small condo in the heart of Vail village. We wanted to arrive at our condo, park the car, and from then on walk to everything. Additionally it gave all the family members their own choice to come and go as they please. After many years of commuting from our house in the Vail Valley we discovered that being in the village is the only way to go if you truly want to partake of all that Vail has to offer.

Don Geiser purchased this condo in 2002

Why Don Geiser chose Vail

Location! Location! Location! In the heart of Vail village, walk to everything.

Close to everything, yet the location is very quite.

What makes this condo unique

Arrive at the condo, park your auto in the condo parking lot, you won't be needing it anymore while your in Vail.

Awake 1 hour before the lifts open, have breakfast, then walk across the street to the Gold Peak lift. We think its the fastest way to the back bowls on those great powder days.

Come back to the condo for lunch it you want.

At the end of the ski day, clean up at the condo, then head to apre ski (1 block walk)

Walk to your favorite restaurants and entertainment. If you want to catch the free Vail shuttle to Lions Head, a bus stop is just across the street.

Quiet peaceful environment, jet just minutes to all the activities that Vail has to offer.

great location, helpful host, a bit dark

  • 3 of 5

We love staying at the base of Gold Peak. Close to the Village, but just a bit out of the fray. Plenty of parking at this place, a rare treat. Owner was very responsive. I only wish the listing had said that this rental is a basement unit. It has a large window in each room so you don't feel trapped, but they face north and are at ground level so you're eye-level with the snowbank. That said, once we got over our surprise, we really enjoyed the unit. Well-supplied, and most importantly, very comfortable beds, including the murphy bed in the living room. I'd give it 3.5 stars, if that was an option.

Owner's Response: In Colorado this is know as a garden level condominium, not basement. The condo has large windows that are above ground. Snow build up through out the season can make the condo a bit dark. Additionally, condos not as close to the slopes and village rent for 2X more than our posted prices. This condo is an exceptional value for its location in the heart of Vail Village. See the other reviews.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom condo was perfect for our family ski trip. Excellent access to golden peak for first chair up. Well stocked kitchen and plenty of towels and blankets. Parking spot was a bonus.

Excellent stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner's description says it all, the condo was perfectly situation to the lifts and Vail Village. It was so much more comfortable than a hotel room with much more space and a well equipped kitchen. We also appreciated the tv with dvd library in the living room and the wall mounted tv in the bedroom after a long and tiring day on the slopes.

It is also a fantastic deal. It is big $$$ to be that close to the slopes in Vail. Due to a snowstorm in our home state causing flight cancellations we had to extend our stay and checked into a similarly situated hotel in the village and it was much more expensive, smaller and didn't come with parking. We far preferred the stay at the condo.

Great location, very good accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location. Easy walk to Golden Peak Riva Bahn Express lift (even with ski boots on) or to Vail Village (with street shoes to Gondola for skiing or for shopping, dining...). Very nice accomdations. Nice layout, well appointed, and very convenient. The owner had all of the details well covered for parking, ski storage, Wi-Fi, etc. Would definitely stay again.

This is a keeper!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very well maintained with all the amenities one might need. Very comfortable and clean. The location was as promised, just across the street from the lift. What more could one ask for! Except for a little more snow! It's a great place! Definitely recommend to my friends and perhaps a return stay in the future.
