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!

Cozy 2 Bedroom Condo

  • 4 of 5

My son and I needed the condo because he had surgery at the Vail hospital. The 2 bedroom condo with no stairs was really helpful. The place

was cozy, comfortable and clean. The owner was extremely attentive, quick to respond and followed up to make sure our stay was ok. If I had to stay in Vail again, I would stay here. I was very happy with my choice .

Excellent Family Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location is great. We walked many times to Lionshead. From your door to the ski rental it was a 12 minutes walk. Safeway a 2 minute drive. The property is perfect. We were very comfortable. Plenty of closet and drawer space. The kitchen well equipped and well organized. The living area was cozy. Our first night we used the gas fireplace. It really warmed up the place. For us coming from Miami was a fun novelty. The bathrooms were neat and most important for my wife super clean.  She’s super picky and the apartment passed with flying colors. Bob is a super host. Quick to respond and made us feel welcomed which made a world of difference.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful renovated condo two minutes from Lionshead. Communication from the owners was incredible. They even had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival. Everything you need for a great ski trip!

Great Family Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a four-night family vacation in Vail. Coordinating arrival details and check-in were a breeze. The condo itself has absolutely everything you need, including covered parking. The condo also is only steps away from the free Vail city bus system. We could not have been happier with the condo and our Vail vacation.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about Bob and his well appointed condo. Everything is exactly as listed and more. Every need was provided for from boot and glove dryers to humidifiers, plenty of linens/towels, 2 nice bathrooms and a wonderful kitchen. It is obvious that Bob takes great pride in his home away from home and that makes it easy to just relax and enjoy it after a long day on the slopes. We spent a couple of nights just enjoying some music and playing some of the provided board games etc. Excellent pizza and more from Local Joes is just around the corner and the shuttle stop is super convenient to the slopes (I recommend the Sandstone route to the Vail Transportation center, then a 300yd walk to gondola 1). Bob is super to work with and always prompt with a reply to any question or need. (Thanks for the great bottle of Cab!)

Look no further that First Track for your first tracks. You will not be disappointed!
