About Sandy Kaiser

Summit County has been a summer and winter vacation destination for several years. It is a wonderful place and a lot to outdoor activities to do in any season.

Sandy Kaiser purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Sandy Kaiser chose Silverthorne

The Ponds at Blue River is a small townhome community that is convenient to everything yet it is peaceful with beautiful mountain views out every window. There is the Blue River, a gold metal trout stream running thru the property, as well as a north and south pond. At the north end of the property is a small public park which morphs into a walk-to free outdoor skaing pond all winter. Across the street is the Ravens Golf Course. There is also a hiking trail that can be accessed from the property.

What makes this townhome unique

We also like our condo because of its convenience and proximity to restaurants and shopping including a Greatland Target (1 mile flat road from unit), The Outlet Mall of Silverthorne, Cinema, City Market Grocery, Whole Foods, REI, Dillon Dam Brewery, Noodles, Smashburger, Einsteins Bagels Ruby Tuesday, Jimmy Johns, Arapahoe Inn, Walgreens, ,Bed Bath Beyond, ETC! The most amenities in Summit County and short drive to quaint towns of Breckenridge and Frisco and Keystone Resort Area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stunning Views and Great Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Myself, wife and two young children stayed at The Ponds at Blue River Condo over the 2017 4th of July week. We've stayed at many VRBO and Air B&B so I'll give you my breakdown of the Condo on what we liked and didn't like.


-The view is breathtaking. The photos in the picture just don't do the mountain views justice. The Master bedroom and Bath have the best views overall.

-Property Amenities: We really didn't think much about what was offered, but we fished (get a license), used the trails and playgrounds every day. The Kaisers also offer for free the use of their Kayak and Paddle board, both of which are high end. This was a huge plus for us.

-Mattress: The bed was perfect. We're pretty sensitive sleepers and need a high quality mattress and the king bed was very nice and we both slept well.

-Owner: Sandy is super easy to work with and fast on communication.

-High Chair / Pack & Play were included, which meant I didn't have to bring one.


-I hate to put the Hot Tub in this category as its actually a higher end unit with many jets and works exceptionally well. Probably the best I've seen in a rental. The problem here is that the cover has an easy lift that only allows you to open the cover one way and that's the wrong way, which is blocking the mountain view. This should be fixed and moved to face the neighbors side to provide privacy and not block that million dollar view.


-Family room is a pretty tight rectangle so it creates a bit of an awkward viewing angle of the TV. I think they've maximized and arranged the space the best they can though.

-Garage space is very tight and with the Kayak / Paddle board in there you wont be able to park your car in there. If you're a family of two cars you'll only have one spot. Not a problem for us though since we just had one vehicle.

-Garage Door Sensors: The garage door kept bouncing up and wouldn't shut even though the sensors were not blocked. I cleaned off the sensors and re-aligned them and this resolved the problem. I didn't notify the owner at the time as we were busy.

In Conclusion we'd highly recommend this condo and would definitely stay there again. The views and property amenities are great and the accessibility to Silverthorne/Dillon and the nearby Ski towns was great.

Great location and very nice accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our group was very happy with our stay. It was very convenient for each room to have their own bathroom. The kitchen was very well stocked with basic pantry items and cooking supplies. Check in was very easy and exactly as described. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your lovely property!
