Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

***Great Discounts for longer visits ***Relax and rejuvenate with your sweetie or another couple (up to 6 people with the new sleeper sofa). GREAT for families too. After a great day in the mountains, why not dim the lights, turn up the fire, and plug in your MP3 for some music with friends. The entertainment system is great for sports and movies, which you can record while your out via the cable DVR or DVD with HDTV. A fine selection of glasses provide the right vehicle for any apéritif. Then fire up the BBQ on the huge covered patio, or whip up some tasty treats in a cook's kitchen, or head out for your choice of some world class restaurants just minutes away (recommendations provided). Little extras like the slow cooker makes hearty meals easy, while the cappuccino maker finishes off with style. It's pretty hard to go wrong here.

Underground parking keeps you dry when the shuttle stop across the street isn't as appealing. Convenient ski and boot storage in the entry keeps your valuables safe and warm (for another big day tomorrow!). With one of the two bathrooms in the guest bedroom, you can feel comfortable spreading out.

We have spent many years creating our home away from home. Our goal is to keep a small group of regular, trustworthy guests. We know you'll love it, and we look forward to your return for many years to come.

About Bob

After exploring 6 continents, we have determined that Vail is indeed 'like nothing on earth'. We've gone to the extreme in designing our condo for our favorite times of the day...morning coffee and happy hour. Prior lounge/bar owners, we respect the importance of lighting and music in creating the right atmosphere. Her nursing background keeps us thinking about safety, while his love of adventure keeps pushing our limits. We are entertainers at heart, and only wish we could enjoy your time in our condo with you. :-)

Bob purchased this condo in 2009

Why Bob chose Vail

We have been enjoying Vail since we were children in the Midwest. As we stepped into parenthood ourselves, we wanted to make sure the tradition continues for many more generations. This place is heaven.

What makes this condo unique

I've made it onto the gondola within 8 minutes of walking out the door. The free shuttle stop across the street is 1 stop away from the walking bridge. And in the summer, it's hard to beat mountain biking and hiking out your back door, only to return to your own semi-private pool (summer only). World class conveniences surround you in Vail, yet it's very easy to break away and enjoy the energy of your natural surroundings, and the local hangouts in nearby old west towns.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Bob! We really enjoyed our time in Vail. The condo was great!

Coolest place ever

  • 5 of 5

The condo was easy to get to and nice to stay in. It is so close to everything in Vail, and the bus makes it easy to get around. It made for a fun weekend of hiking and relaxing. The market in Vail Village on Sunday was a nice surprise.

This place is way bigger than we expected. Upgraded appliances and the little extras made the condo a treat! Highly recommended for families!

The best VRBO experience I've ever had

  • 5 of 5

Top notch experience from the first interaction to the last. I will definitely be back. Not sure how these prices are so reasonable for this quality. Great vibe in the condo, and out on the massive patio. This place is well loved and a joy for all ages. Incredible location as well that's close to everything. We will be back many times.
