Recently renovated and redecorated, this modern mountain loft will be your home in West Vail with a great open feel. High ceilings and the south-facing windows provide lots of natural light and views of the slopes of Vail Resort.
The bistro table set on the balcony is great for relaxing with a drink or snack during the warmer months, while looking out at Vail mountain.
THE BEDROOM is the upstairs loft:
→ Queen Bed with memory foam mattress
→ Views out to the slopes of Vail.
→ Hardwood floors
→ Sleeper Sofa for additional sleeping down in the living room:
equivalent to a full-size bed (it's as long as a queen, but as wide as a full; 80"x55"). This sleeper sofa is not like a typical pull-out couch; it's actually quite comfortable, with no springs to cause pressure points. As a bed, it's on the firm side, so I've provided a memory foam mattress topper, in case you prefer your bed to be a bit softer.
For a spa-like experience, the walk-in slate tile shower is equipped with a luxurious rain shower head.
Let your inner chef out: the kitchen is equipped with a basic assortment of cooking tools: pots, pans, knives, cutting boards, measuring cups/spoons, a toaster, blender, etc.
→ Coffee-Lovers: there is a Nespresso machine with aeroccino so that you can enjoy a nice espresso beverage in the morning with frothed milk. When I'm in town I keep a small assortment of coffee pods available, but if I've been gone for a while and many guests have stayed, I can't guarantee that there will still be pods available, so bring your own if you have favorites (the machine takes the original style Nespresso pods).
There is a TV hung on the wall, with a Roku attached. It's set up with Netflix, HBO Go, and an assortment of other streaming channels (FX NOW, FOX NOW, ESPN, ABC, A&E, History Channel, CNN, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, ABC News, and PBS, to name a few).
Please note that there isn't cable/satellite service here (but who has time for TV when there's so much to do outside!).
Get your own snow report by looking out the windows right after you wake up: The bedroom is the upstairs loft, with hardwood floors, a queen bed and views out to the slopes of Vail. For additional sleeping, I've provided a sleeper sofa down in the living room, roughly equivalent to a queen-size bed.
Everything you need is close by: two grocery stores (Safeway and City Market), liquor stores, world-class restaurants in Vail Village and Lionshead, the ski slopes, etc. are all within 3-10 minutes via bus or car. There are some nice hiking trails just a short walk up the street, too.
Having a car certainly allows more flexibility, but if you'd rather have a car-free vacation, the bus will get you most anywhere you need to go in Vail.
The condo is a very short walk from the free Town of Vail Sandstone bus line for quick access to all of the great skiing/riding, shopping, restaurants and activities in Vail Village and Lionshead. The bus runs all day, from early morning to late night; Sandstone Creek Club stop is just steps from the condo property on Vail View Drive.
Once in the village, you can even catch the ECO (Eagle County) bus to go elsewhere in the Valley. For example, Beaver Creek ski area. Note: Unlike Town of Vail's free in-town bus, ECO bus service is not free, but is inexpensive.
A car isn't necessary when staying here, but if you prefer the flexibility of one, there is free parking for one car at the condo.
Walking: there is a pedestrian bridge across I-70 (the highway that gets you to Vail from Denver) not too far from my condo that will get you to Lionshead village. It's a nice walk (~1 mile), but not ideal when carrying skis, so I'd stick with bus or car if you're carrying equipment.
