About Holly Jason
We have lived in Durango for over 18 years and can help you plan a wonderful vacation for your family. Concierge services included!
Holly Jason purchased this House in 2004
Why Holly Jason chose Historic Downtown Durango
The location is very much downtown with three breakfast places within a block, and the local food co-op grocery store right across the street. If you don't want to drive and you want a house instead of a condo, this is your place.
What makes this House unique
Unique decor, and a real house with character. This is a super comfortable house with all the trappings. We have paid much attention to the details: super nice beds and linens, hand made soap, La Creuset pans, Weber Grill, original Art. We have really had fun making this place special.

Such a great spot, convenient to everything Downtown Durango has to offer! Wonderfully appointed, you'll love it here.
Very well appointed cottage close to downtown. Holly is super friendly, helpful and welcoming.
Darling home! Perfect location!
Darling home! Perfect location! We were only in Durango for a couple of nights, and wanted to make the most of our time. This was the perfect spot to make it all happen - walking distance to shopping and restaurants. A quick drive and get away for horseback riding, flyfishing, and golf. Hats off to Holly for maintaining such a well-appointed, cozy house. We are already talking about a return trip!
Cozy Cottage, Steps to Downtown
Beautiful place, very clean warm and welcoming. Nicely done remodel. Feels instantly like home. We've stayed in many vacay rentals around the world, this one has such a cozy feeling wished we had time to stay for a whole week.
Owner is very conscientious, easy to work with, and takes care of all the details in a timely manner.
Highly recommended! Thanks for making my partner's birthday extra special.
Nice property, well located
The property had everything we needed and was about 20 mins walk from the main downtown area so was well located. The only small downside was that it was situated on a more major road than I expected so there was quite a lot of road noise (especially at peak times).
Perfect home base in Durango
The St. Francis house had everything we needed for our stay, with homey and artistic touches to boot. College neighborhood away from the tourists yet in walking distance and with a great breakfast place across the street. Love to go back.
World class mountain bike trail system 2 blocks from house! Also this Horse Gulch trail system is Dog friendly. We also have a Dog Park nearby and a kids playground within 2 blocks. Also the famous Druango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is within walking distance.
