Our second stay at Xanadu was as perfect as our first!
Just a perfect house and perfect location. We've stayed here twice and wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Durango area. Being just a little north of Durango, Hermosa is a great location to get to great hiking and fishing. The views from the house are just beautiful and the house is incredible. Spotlessly clean and has all amenities we could ask for. We enjoyed the hot tub every night after our days' activities. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful home with us - we already can't wait to come back again!
Fantastic mountain home!
This is truly a special home. From the moment we arrived at the front gate, we knew that Xanadu was going to be a winner. It is one of our all-time favorite vacation properties. It is well laid out and spacious with several living areas to accommodate a good-sized group. The property is well-maintained and it feels like a home rather than an impersonal rental. And the views! We spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the spectacular mountains and the lovely garden. One thing I really loved -- sappy I know but a very personal touch -- was the vase of flowers picked from the yard that greeted us in the kitchen. Xanadu is a winner and we can't wait to return to this beautiful part of Colorado and to this secluded, magical home.
Relaxing mountain retreat
We stayed at this lovely house in the middle of summer, and it was a very pleasant retreat from our everyday lives (we live in hot and dry NM). The space was welcoming and plenty large enough for my family - there were 4 adults and 2 kids, which was very comfortable with bedroom space, and we didn't even use all the common hangout areas. The house has everything you could possibly need for a longer stay, grill, games, books, hot tub with extra towels, etc. And the outdoor space was amazing!
My only two, small issues: the house is pretty dangerous for babies, lots of stairs with no good gate options on the main stairwell right next to the kitchen. And there's no air conditioning, so even with fans the upstairs was a little hot by the afternoon (downstairs was super comfy though). Despite this, we had a great time and would definitely return!
Beautiful home and property,great views from the decks.
Very private home
The home was just as described. It's very beautiful and it has fantastic view. I would have changed some things if it were my house. Overall, it was a great experience.
We enjoyed a beautiful home, comfortable rooms and gorgeous views while we were in Durango! I would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing, peaceful getaway to CO in the summer!
