About Sunshine Qualls

We have offered rentals by owner on Durango Mountain since 2008. Our philosophy is to offer a uniquely romantic decor; that somewhere special to make your mountain memories! Cody and I share a passion for home building and interior design, and have extensively upgraded our homes; from flooring to lighting, fixtures and furniture. Each element of decor is hand-selected, in hopes that guests will love our home ambiance as much as the Colorado mountains. We and our 2 young daughters feel grateful for each day that we get to spend in the refreshing mountain air, enjoying down-town Durango, and exploring Silverton, Ouray, Mesa Verde and the many mountain lakes and hiking trails.

Sunshine Qualls purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sunshine Qualls chose Southwest

The Views, Views, Views, the ski in/ ski out location, the balcony and the patio. We also love the East Rim community of 4 buildings (8 units each and green space around each building) and location at Durango's Purgatory Mountain resort where we have owned for 8 years. Both our lovingly upgraded and beautifully furnished East Rim units have upstairs balconies with BBQ's and downstairs patios.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy "Dream Views" and outdoor seating and dining on both the patio and balcony in Spring, Summer and Fall. In winter, enjoy the convenience of ski in/ski out! Year-round the 2 levels of corner unit views will make you feel just a little closer to Heaven!

Best vacation to date!!!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Colorado every year to ski...have for many years. This condo was BY FAR the best one we have stayed at! The views are spectacular!!!! The pictures don't do it justice! Absolutely amazing! Sunshine has decorated this place fabulously! Very cozy and comfortable....had a hard time gettin up in the morning :) just didn't wanna leave lol. We were right across the street from the chair lift (sooooo easy and convenient), it didn't take us 3 minutes to walk up there. We were within walking distance to everything on the mountain, from shopping to food. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!! Thank you so much Sunshine for everything and for allowing us to stay at your home :) we will defiantly be back!

Wonderful vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this property. The condo was exceptionally clean and fantastically decorated! We especially enjoyed the newly remodeled master bathroom with the jacuzzi tub for two! This is definitely our first choice for the Purgatory Ski area.

Amazing views and perfect location for a trip to Purgatory!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Dream Views II. It is perfectly located for a ski in ski out trip to Purgatory. The owners are extremely organized and responsive to any and all needs. They have spent a lot of time organizing everything and creating a guide book for the property along with many great suggestions to help you enjoy your stay. We would highly recommend this location for families with small kids and could also work for several couples too. We have stayed at several other locations within Purgatory and this was our favorite to date. They have spent a lot of time and effort renovating this condo and have done an excellent job. We will be coming back! Thanks for a great stay!
