About the property

2500 sq ft of Durango style located 10 minutes from downtown & the ski resort

This is the absolute best combination of location, views, access to activities, comfort and style.

Our newly remodeled Durango home is a great place to call home base while enjoying all Durango has to offer. The home has an open-air lodge style feel with large windows and a huge wrap around deck that includes a brand new Jacuzzi. The house & deck overlook the Animas Valley to the east where the beautiful James Ranch settles below. The orientation of the home provides outstanding red cliff sunset views. The first floor consists of the bright and airy kitchen, a large living/dining area, a comfortable office/study, a conveniently located powder room, laundry room, and a spacious master suite with full bath including an over-sized bath tub for soaking after a long day of fun. Upstairs is the guest bedroom with a comfortable queen-sized bed and lots of room for storing your clothing & gear. The other bedroom has a bunk bed consisting of a full bed on bottom and twin bed on top, plus another twin bed in here. This room connects to a super-cool bonus room! Watch movies, play video games, or just hang out in this room- perfect for kids & adults. It hosts huge bean bag chairs and a full-sized futon. Just like a cozy cave!

Very warm and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described.The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The hot tub was awesome. Brian Honold, property manager, was great to work with. Very attentive and responses quickly. He brought us the cutest Christmas tree. The kids area was perfect for us. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I travelled around Colorado on our honeymoon and stayed in a few different Homeaway properties throughout the trip. This property was definitely the best one we stayed in by far!

The house was very clean and it was very clear the property manager respected our privacy, but at the same time was available for anything we needed at ANY time. The hot tub view made it all worth it! (The close proximity to the golf course helped too ;)

We can’t wait to stay here again in the future!

Beautiful mountain location.

  • 4 of 5

This house is gorgeous inside and out. It accommodated the eight of us with no problems. The kitchen was fully outfitted with all the things we needed. The deck wraps around and gives a spectacular view of the mountains to the east. The newly installed central A/C made things very comfortable. The biggest complaint was the hot tub was inoperable during most of our stay, but the part came in and the repair was completed on our last day. We were surprised there was not a VCR or Blu-ray player for the TV. Finally, we noticed only one water appliance/shower can be used at one time or else the water pressure goes low. We would rent again if we ever came back to the area. Lots to see and do in and around Durango!

Owner's Response: We try very hard to keep the house in great shape for all of our guest so I apologize that the hot tub had an issue during your stay. I am not sure how the VCR was overlooked , but it is located in the bonus room with the over stuffed bean bags and futon where we hunker down with the lights off and watch movies in the evenings during ski season. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, I certainly appreciate your feedback and I hope you have an opportunity to stay with us again. Thanks, Tom

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a great price. We easily fit two families of four. House was clean and stocked. View was fantastic and we spent a lot of time on the patio in the mornings and evenings. Perfect location... great proximity for groceries, eating out, shopping, jeeping, horseback riding... all with nice private patio and home at the end of the day. Brian was always available and always helpful.

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time staying here. The house was just as good or better than the pictures. The location was perfect as well. The house care taker was local and very helpful. I sure hope I get to return someday soon.
