About Joan

I grew up skiing in Winter Park and still do. This condo has been in our family for 41 years (original owners) and it holds a special place in my memories--we hope you can create some fond memories in Winter Park too.

Joan purchased this condo in 1973

Why Joan chose Winter Park

Winter Park is a family oriented resort that is very close to Denver. There are consistently fewer traffic issues commuting to Winter Park than the other Front Range Ski Resorts. It is 'Colorado's Favorite' and although has a reputation for being family friendly and affordable, has some of the most challenging slopes in North America that keeps expert skiers coming back. Summer offers fun children's activities at the resort base, miles of bike trails at every level, and scenic hiking.

What makes this condo unique

Living room has a huge L-shaped leather couch for lounging, watching movies or gazing at the fire after a long day on the mountain. Rec Center has a huge indoor pool with four hot tubs along with a game room, laundry facilities.

short walk to shops and bus ride to Winter Park, the kitchen sink, lights and table were broke.

  • 3 of 5

Winter Park was amazing. We had a good time. We found the flat colder than we expected but it was fine. I found the host shockingly unfair.

The bedroom light and kitchen sink and table were broken we notified owner and she said she knew about the sink she would see if it's possible to get someone to fix it.

We moved the bed about half a metre and dI'd not move it back. It was not in the way and it would have taken 1 minute to move back. She charged me $25 from the damage deposit to move it.

Meanwhile I am getting water for cleaning and cooking from the bathroom and stumbling around in the dark.

The lounge sleeper was also very uncomfortable. Eventually my wife and my child were sleeping on the floor.

So, can't wait to go back to Winter Park. I defineatly will not stay in this unit or any other unit the owner has anything to do with.

Has real potential, but needs some changes

  • 3 of 5

First of all, we are harsh reviewers. So please read this with that in mind.

PROS: responsive owner with quick replies and real effort to make things right. Bed and sofabed both very comfortable. Small condo in good shape for an old complex: bath recently remodeled well, kitchen well-stocked. Working wood-burning fireplace (we didn't use). Great location in walking distance to the whole town (preferred drop-offs at WP base or would have done paid parking at the Vintage Hotel if all had been skiers; not big fans of the Lift bus service but it comes right to the condo). Great TV with HDMI jacks in living room.

CONS: Quality of 'consumables' was really poor: bath towels low quality, toilet paper was horrible 'dollar store' quality, no soap or other amenities (that is unheard of in our VRBO experience). No kleenex and very few towels available--no hand towels at all (owner said that there had been problems with theft of some products so the bare minimum gets stocked, but promptly had towels and kleenex delivered when notified of the problem). Lightbulbs throughout are mostly cool white compact fluorescent which feels/looks horrible. Only seating for 3 at counter. No other seating for meals. Whole condo is carpeted--including kitchen! and bathroom sink area (except shower/toilet room). Surprised carpet is in such good condition, but it was. No headboard on bed and no pillowcases available for any of the 'king size' bed pillows in closet. A very worn and torn (in multiple places with prominent holes) blanket was in the bedroom closet. We would guess it was last inspected in the late 1980s from its condition. No hangers in closet. Pillows were old and a bit stained, though a couple were our preferred squishy down-filled variety. An overwhelmingly strong detergent fragrance was evident on the bedsheets/pillows--actually interfered with sleep until we got used to it--not pleasant.

RECOMMENDATIONS: To owner: Charge guests another few bucks per night and provide higher quality paper products, good towels, adequate linens and blankets, new pillows, a few hangers, and 2 mini bars of soap. Change the lightbulbs to warm white (even LED). Use unscented laundry detergent. To future guests: we think the owner will do these things...she seems to care about her property and this is a great price point for a WP rental. Some inexpensive fixes will go a long way.

Owner's Response: Hi Jason, Thank you so much for letting me know about the issues regarding the quality of consumables, linens and blankets. I had to hire a new cleaner this year (my old one got a full time job in Grand County). I had not had a chance to check her work this season as I was booked solid back to back. I just had the opportunity to go up and check her work and was very disappointed in what I found. None of the linens or blankets are even mine (she is switching out my high quality stuff with her other clients, without my permission!). I give her more than enough money to stock quality consumables and obviously the money I provided was not going towards those. Thanks again for these observations, I have replaced her and hope to have better results with the new cleaner!

Very cute and cozy condo!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. The condo has everything you need. Couch is comfy, nice comfortable bed, great shower. Only had a couple small issues. The bathroom sink would not drain and we could only get a trickle of water out of the kitchen sink faucet.

Great condo in a perfect location within Winter Park.

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything you'll need and has been recently remodeled. It is in a great location with the building very close to the newly built Hi Country Haus rec center. The owner Joan has seemingly thought of everything and we will be coming back.

Family Comfort

  • 5 of 5

A great weekend getaway from Denver for the family to snowboard on the mountain. We love the location of the property. The new rec center is fantastic and the pool and hot tubs are a relaxing break after being on the slopes all day.

Another Great Winter Park Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 has stayed at this condo before and have plans to stay again this season. The new rec center is great and an added bonus for this season's ski trips! The location between the resort, restaurants in WP and the grocery store in Fraser can't be beat. We enjoy staying at Hi Country Haus for all of our weekend trips.
