Overview

About the property

Permit 2012-110

The Purple Juniper is an updated and inviting half-duplex four blocks to Main Ave. The home faces a sunny and quiet neighborhood street. It has an open floor plan with an updated bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom is fully tiled. The kitchen has granite countertops and is equipped with everything needed to make a multi-course meal or a simple smoothie.

The kitchen and living room are connected by a granite island with three seats. Additional dining seating in the Summer is a four-seat table on the front deck. The bedrooms have a queen bed in one room and two twins in the second room. All beds are solid, plush, and comfortable. Evaporative cooling in the Summer additionally provides for restful nights.

The adjacent duplex unit's primary access and activity is to the back of the house with the vacation rental having dedicated use of the front deck and grill.

When you arrive, you will have a combination to enter the home. I am readily available to help as much as needed or leave you in privacy per your preference. You can settle in by having a cool drink on the front deck or walking a few blocks to Main Avenue to relax at one of the coffee shops or brewpubs.

In addition to downtown and Main Avenue, hiking and biking trails are also within a few blocks of the home.

About Victoria Schmitt

I moved to Durango in 2005 and work as a civil engineer for the local county. I am originally from Columbus, Ohio and have since lived in Arizona and Colorado, with some time spent in West Africa and Southeast Asia. In Durango I have been involved with the Durango Dharma Center and the Durango Independent Film Festival.

Outside of work and the vacation rental, I also enjoy biking, camping, reading, and hiking, especially with my 11-year old dogs, Neutron and Kozmo.

Victoria Schmitt purchased this house in 2007

Perfect Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Durango and using the darling Purple Juniper House as our home base to explore Mesa Verde National Park was perfect. After a long day it was wonderful to come back to a spacious, warm, quiet and cozy place. Having a full size kitchen it was so simple to prepare our own meals and open a bottle of wine and stay in for the night. Or the option to walk downtown since the location of the Purple Juniper was so close. We were even able to bring our German Shepard and walking him around the lovely neighborhood was so convenient. The icing on the cake was meeting Victoria the owner. She is an absolute delight and will will work with you to make sure your stay is so wonderful you may not want to go home. In any event you will definitely return for another stay at the Purple Juniper. We will for sure!!!! Joe, Patti and Kaibab

A perfect fit for us!

  • 5 of 5

The 4 of us really enjoyed staying at the Purple Juniper. The location was excellent. We walked downtown many times, and it was so enjoyable to see the cute neighborhoods, not to worry about parking. Durango has a great downtown area, and by walking downtown, we could explore little side streets and shops. Victoria is amazing. She communicated with us prior to our trip, and while we were there. Clearly knows what she is doing with the property. All of the comforts of home were stocked. Sets of Dishes, Glasses, utensils, cookware, measuring cups, etc and even great spices. The beds were so comfy and plenty of blankets. Ample parking in the front. It truly was a joy to stay here. Thank you very much!

Minimum of 5-night rentals may be made at anytime. Two-night rentals are available within 30 days of check-in.

Payment is typically made in full at the time of booking for simplicity, but may be split into two with the second half due 45 days prior to arrival.

Cancellation policy is the same regardless of payment schedule, with 75% of the total rental cost refundable when 30 days or more notice is provided. Within 30 days of check-in, no refunds are given.
