About the property

AmaZing Mountain Views, 2 PN Jacuzzi, Sleeps 2-8, Wood Fireplace, Plum Beautiful

Soak in 2 levels of spectacular San Juan & Needles Mountain views at Purgatory, Durango, CO at our "Durango Dream Views - Ski in Ski Out" Condo. From sweeping summer greenery against Cerulean blue skies (you know, that vivid blue that looks impossibly straight out of the paint tube), to glowing fall aspens and glorious snow covered winter peaks; our East Rim corner condo's year-round mountain views are hard to beat.

Beautifully renovated to be enjoyed by our family and our guests, Durango Dream Views is designed to be romantic, comfortable and memorable. Plentiful art, a myriad of rustic textures, and saturated nature hues to bring the gorgeous outdoors into our home. In winter season ski in ski out at Purgatory from our East Rim Bldg. D courtyard, and wave to bunny slopes skiers down below, from our balcony and Patio. In summer, spring and fall seasons, our balcony and patio offer outdoor spaces with stunning vistas that help you remember why its great to be alive.

Owner, Occupancy, and Pet Questions:

We've advertised on HomeAway and VRBO since 2008. Ask owner Sunshine questions using the "Send Message" link under owner name, or of ready to reserve, use "Request to Book" with prepayment. I look forward to hearing from you. Many base rates offer savings for smaller families/ lower occupancy, moving to standard seasonal rate as guests are added. Or opt to save with great summer and ski weekly rates. Fall and Spring seasons start at a special 2 guest romance rate. Our maximum occupancy is 6 adults, or up to 8 guests if at least 2 are younger children. We are pet friendly with very specific pet policies (dogs only, max 2 with approval and fee, pets must be kept off beds and furniture) in order to upkeep our home beautifully for all guests.

Durango Dream Views Layout:

UPSTAIRS

The living room's 3 large glass doors offer spectacular views every day from much of the upstairs, of the Needles Mountains, Twilight lake across the highway, and the winter Bunny Slopes down below. Our corner condo is approximately 1274SF, on 2 levels with wood floors, carpeted winder stairs, a blacony and a patio. Our upstairs is Durango Dream Views main living level, featuring the kitchen, dining, living, artwork that brings the outdoors in, a full bathroom, and a balcony with dinging seating for 4, and a gas grill. In addition to the 3 large sliding doors, 2 beautiful new wood side windows and a tall window by the fireplace offer addtional natural light and scenic views. Durango Dream Views is a great place to be!

Enjoy family evenings at beautiful farmhouse style reclaimed wood table. Eight padded leather chairs, a highchair for baby (and a custom coffee table that doubles as extra seating for children) make the table perfect to gather round for family games or socializing after dinner. Matching dinnerware, decorative plate chargers, leather placemats, handforged flatware and Italian glassware set an inviting table for your family.

The living area features a large, down stuffed flannel and leather trim sofa by Lauren Schnadig, and a made in the USA queen sleeper bed sofa. Both coffee tables are custom made from reclaimed silo wood by a CO Springs wood artisan. A woodburning fireplace with stone trim and wood mantle compliment the romantic mountain ambiance. Aspen wood is seasonally provided outside by our HOA, we reccomend bringing 4hr logs to make fire upkeep easier. A smart TV with Direct TV satellite service is mounted above the fireplace. The satellite can be impacted by winter storms.

Our kitchen features Maytag made in the USA stainless appliances. Enjoy the luxury convenience of a bottom freezer fridge and Gemini double oven. The counters are our family's favorite purchase, in beautiful Aurora Borealis Granite, accented with a chocolate glass backsplash. You'll love the plentiful lighting, and tall faucet that's easy to get pans beneath. Every inch of cabinet space has been utilized to provide plenty of mixing bowls, a crock pot, blender, mixer, primarily stainless pots and pans, a roasting pan, baking pans and more. We cook special family dinners here too, and strive to ensure that our guests will be have all the utensils needed to prepare lovely meals.

DOWNSTAIRS

Our 2.5 bedrooms are downstairs, accessed by carpeted winder stairs with a handrail. Even the stairwell is pretty, with colored glass lights and warmly saturated artworks. At the bottom of the stairs is the 3rd bedroom. It is a semi-private space best suited to children, yet is spacious and very inviting. There is a full bottom bunk reinforced for adults, and a twin upper bunk. The room has an attached powder room with toilet, vanity and front load LG washer and dryer. Joyful art, Pottery Barn quilts, a door with window and window behind the bunk bed, and a large armoire complete this welcoming space.

A wood and privacy glass door lead to a fully renovated jacuzzi room. Renew your woo, relax sore muscles, or let the children have a bubble bath. With full travertine walls, reflective glass accents, and dimmable lights, and massage shower head, the corner jacuzzi tub room will be a family favorite.

Both of the private bedrooms bring the romance factor, and offer lots of comfort. Lay in the comfy queen bed and gaze out at the gorgeous mountain views, through glass doors that lead to the private patio. Two dimmable glass drop chandeliers hang over the bed, complementing gilded accents and layered Pottery Barn bedding. The patio features a loveseat swing, and Pier 1 wicker table set, and never-ending mountain views. The adjacent King bedroom offers the added convenience of an attached powder room. The room is a beautiful space to reconnect with your spouse, the crystal drum chandeliers over the bed sparkle on the suede paint walls. In the evenings skip the TV, and instead turn on the wall mount, wood frame electric fireplace and cozy up. Pottery Barn velvet and a RL cotton kilim texture duvet filled with down, make the comfy Tempur-pedic king mattress special and restful. Both private bedrooms have flat screen TV's with Direct TV*, RL suede walls, hanging closet storage, and creamy, softly pearlescent ceilings. We've striven to create bedroom spaces that are worthy of a Colorado honeymoon, anniversary, birthday, or just that chance to remind your spouse how much you love them.

Bathroom Specifics:

There is 1 full bathroom upstairs with a toilet, and tub-shower combo. This bathroom has been modernized with a new vanity, tile floor, Kohler toilet and fixtures, Its white tile may be the only orignal feature remaining in our East Rim home. Downstairs are 2 powder rooms each with vanity and toilet, and a separate corner Jacuzzi tub combo with shower. The king powder room leads into the jacuzzi room with a glass and wood pocket door. The jacuzzi room can be separated from the king powder room and the bunk room with wood frame, glass privacy doors. A washer and dryer (BYO HE detergent) are in the powder room attached to the bunk area.

TRAVELING WITH BABIES?

To make vacation more enjoyable for moms with babies and toddlers, at "Durango Dream Views" we offer 1 standard and 1 large pack n play, a folding highchair, an Alex Toys play mat, and Little People toys. There are also plenty of childrens books for all ages to read bedtime stories, and board games. We have a baby gate, and try to stock toddler dishes and spoons.

ELECTRONICS:

There is wi-fi, its speed is sufficient to play movies on the living room Smart TV and goes out rarely. While there are 3 TV's in our home, we like to "tune out" when on the mountain, and rarely use TV when there (maybe for an urgent football game or a dose of DIY). You will likely know more about the TV's and satellite than we do. The upstairs TV mounted above the fireplace is a smart TV and does have a DVD player and HDMI. All 3 TV's have Direct TV satellite service, yet note that satellite service can go out during heavy rain storms or snow storms that are on the way.

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 Durango

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!
