About Jan and Angie Corbett Kuiper (JACK)
Hi. We're Johannes (Jan) and Angie Corbett Kuiper. We are the owners and private property managers of Eolus Condo #420. We both love the outdoors and enjoy backcountry backpacking, hiking, mountain bike riding, downhill skiing, sailing, traveling around the world, and wine tasting. Our sons enjoy snowboarding while we ski. We swim, fish, and play frisbee golf. Durango is such a great family get a way!
Jan and Angie Corbett Kuiper (JACK) purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Jan and Angie Corbett Kuiper (JACK) chose Purgatory Resort
Angie has been skiing this mountain since 1983 and absolutely loves Purgatory, Durango Mountain Resort, Purgatory (LOL). Jan visited with his family years ago, and he, too, absolutely fell in love with the mountain. Both Jan and Angie ski and bike the mountain, hike the trails, fish in the streams and lakes. We love the serenity and the beauty that surrounds us each and every moment we are here. The people are great and we are honored to be a part of this great community. We know you will feel it too!
What makes this Condo unique
If you choose to stay in our vacation rental home, you will experience the absolutely amazing views of the Needles Mountains and the base of Purgatory Resort. In the winter you can ski right from the condo to your choice of chairlifts, or you can watch from your picture window skiers skiing down the slopes all day, and riding the chairlifts back up. In the summer you can open your windows, or sit on the private deck and hear the music from the Mountain Music Festival, laughter, and activities down at the Village Center. You can ride the Alpine Slide, play miniature golf, swim in the private pool or soak in one of 2 hot tubs on sight.

✔️ BUCKET LIST!! A 50 Year Dream/Wish Come True
Angie’s condo & Purgatory Resort was a 50 year dream of mine! The view from the window is exact what has been in my minds eye all those many years! The first two days we were there we sat in front of the windows all day watched it snow, skiers & other activities below! This was awesome because we live in south Texas and don’t ever have this view! The condo was great, it provided all the amenities anyone would desire. The location of the condo was perfect, covered parking was definitely a plus!
Angie is a jewel to talk to on the phone.....just wish I could have met her in person! Thank you for the lovely bottle of wine it was a nice welcome! I could go on and on!
The best part of this unit is definitely the view, amazing!!! My husband and I would start our morning by having coffee at the table while taking in the breathtaking view outside.
The unit was a tiny bit cramped for 2 adults and 2 teen boys. But that was kind of nice because it forced them to hang out with us :)
I spoke to Angie several times on the trip and she was nothing but helpful.
This lodge is in the Eolus building which is next to Twilight lift. Easy walk to the lift. The view was my favorite part as it overlooks the Beach (where all the red chairs are) and makes for a great place to people watch, if you're into that kind of thing. The complimentary bottle of wine was a fine touch, too.
The room itself had all the amenities we needed for a family of four to live comfortably for 5 days. We were able to cook with the basic cooking utensils supplied. We did laundry on the last day which was a nice amenity that most lodges have not offered. The lodge was very clean, uptodate and comfortable. We hope this unit stays on VRBO so that next Christmas, we can stay here again. Highly recommended!!!!
Thank you Jan and Angela for being wonderful hosts!!!!
Amazing Condo Basecamp!
This is my favorite place of all time. We mountain biked the Divinity Flow Trail and hiked several trails around the area. It's always nice to not have to drive anywhere at the end of the day. We can just walk right back to the condo. The views are awesome and everything we need to cook is there. Make sure to stop at the grocery store in downtown Durango before coming up. There is only a small deli/grocery on the mountain that offers limited supplies.
Beautiful condo and perfect location!
Thank you for letting us stay in yuour beautiful condo! It was perfect for our family of 4.
A few things I wish I would've known...1.Dining choices are VERY limited (2 restaurants) after 5pm 2. The"market" in the village is super limited, they didn't have bread or toilet paper.
Nice condo and great location
My son and I stayed in the condo during Spring Break. It is in a great location with the steps of the main building being only 20 yards from the Twilight Lift that gets you to the backside, and hardly ever has a line. While it has a joint living and sleeping area, the layout works. The kitchen has small appliances but is well equipped. We made most meals there to save time and money of eating at the resort. It would be great for a couple, or a small family.
We had some minor confusion about timing on the first day, but I was able to get in touch with Angie and worked things out easily. One of the best things about the Eolus condo is that you get one spot in the parking garage which is really convenient.
We hope to be back and, if so, would definitely stay in Eolus 420 again.
Upon arrival you will find a beautiful activity guide the owners have put together for your enjoyment which includes pictures and details regarding activities in and around Purgatory including shopping, wine tasting rooms, riding the Durango Silverton Narrow Guage Railway train, visiting Silverton, mining excursions, rock climbing, horse back riding, fly fishing, fresh lake and stream fishing, restaurants, skiing, Purgy's, day hikes, mountain bike riding, Indian Ruins, etc.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Due to the high number of smoke/fire detector false alarms, the Eolus Condo Association is enforcing a new policy that in the event of a false alarm, the cost of $500.00 per occurrence will now be the occupant's responsibility. We ask that you use caution when cooking and/or baking. Also make sure the knob controlling the flue to the fireplace is set to "green" before starting a fire. The $500- damage deposit will cover this amount and will be refunded if the smoke/fire detector did not activate during your stay. The Property Damage Protection covers you in case of physical property damage to the contents inside of the unit. This fee covers all damage up to $1500.
