About Michelle Melgares

I love cycling and want to share the great things this community has to offer with the world. If you can do it outdoors, you can do it within 45 minutes of Fruita. Skiing and wine country tourism too!

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Place was perfect! Right downtown, perfect location, perfect house. 2 blocks from the cruiser bike rental shop to bike around the vineyard tour. Clean, fully stocked, even a backyard with a grill and comfortable patio furniture to enjoy your own party. 10/10 would rent again. Thanks!!

Clean, and very close to downtown attractions

  • 4 of 5

The house was cute and clean with a great location to downtown Palisade. We stayed in July and the house was at 90 degrees when we arrived. Without fans to help cool it down, it was quite hot that first night. After figuring out the air conditioning, it worked really well in the main rooms, but in the bedrooms it was stuffy. While the place sleeps 6, 2 of the beds are on the front porch, which was too warm. Also, I think the beds are some type of child's bed? They are short and skinny. I'm thin and 5'9 but just barely fit on it. The house was very clean but pretty sparse when it came to day to day things. It had a small unkept backyard, but had a grill. The free cable was nice, but a DVD player would have been great for our rainy day. The owner or caretaker was very helpful concerning entertainment ideas. It was perfect for our 4 night, girl's getaway.

Owner's Response: Hello Leigh, Thank you for your review. We really regret that your stay was not as comfortable as our previous guests have stated in their reviews. I am not sure what happened with the A/C upon arrival, we always turn it on to cool the house down about four hours prior to the earliest allowed arrival time. We really wish you would have called us so we could figure out what was wrong and had a chance to resolve the issue. We would have been happy to help! Our area in July is very hot and understand how this would be uncomfortable. Upon receiving your review, we had an HVAC company go check it out and all is clear. We hope to have a chance to host your stay again and hope that next time you stay will be as stellar as our previous guests have stated in their reviews. Michelle

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I went to Palisade for a girls trip and really enjoyed our stay at this property! The house was the perfect size and very comfortable. We loved relaxing in the backyard after our trip to the wineries! The house is also perfectly located within easy walking distance of downtown as well as the brewery and distillery. We will definitely stay here again!
