Quiet with gorgeous views.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property to be close to trails, amenities and quiet. We have visited Durango for over the past 20 years and this is one of the best properties to have a get away stay. It is close to the bike trail that runs through town, the recreation center, a number of trails including the Colorado trails, the Dharma Center and wonderful Durango library. The Villa is location is great for missing Main Street traffic and getting on the trails or the slopes all the sooner. Yet we were only minutes away by car to downtown restaurants and the Durango train. It is also close to one of the Animas SUP board or Kayak put ins.

The property is beautiful and the villa is roomy and decorated well.

  • 4 of 5

The location is good, close to downtown and the mountains. City market is very convenient to pick up groceries. The only thing I felt could have been better is the furniture looks good, but is not comfortable for relaxing and the view from the balcony is nice but a bit obstructed. Other than that, the place is awesome, clean and well stocked. Bed is comfortable, towels are very nice.

Charming Villa in Durango!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property! It had everything we needed and charm to boot. The owners thought of everything: location, WiFi, comfort, conveniences, decor. The villa was very clean and had quiet surroundings. There's a corner grocery store right down the street if you want to cook. But if you don't, there's plenty of restaurants nearby. We came to ride the train, which is also nearby. The owners made it easy to park and check in. (They left a note with check-in/check-out times and what we needed to do before we left.) Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

Great location, very clean and comfortable. Just a few minutes drive to downtown or a short walk to hop in the river. One bedroom/bath is perfect for two visiting Durango CO.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay! It was perfect for us! Very very clean and very well stocked! So many thoughtful things...lots of towels, very comfortable bedding and furniture, Apple TV, wifi, fully stocked kitchen (down to coffee and spices to cook with) and even games for the family to play. Great location in town. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone needing a place to stay in Durango.
