About Russ Trook
My wife and I were long-time Colorado residents (NW suburbs of Denver, then Erie vicinity) but began spending the cooler season in Arizona. Our primary business is rental property...short-term vacation type, as well as residential...in both Colorado and Arizona. We manage all of our properties ourselves. We are baby-boomers and immensely enjoy our home here in one of the Del Webb active adult resort communities in the Phoenix west valley (we're essentially year-round now in AZ). Like all of those who lack inexpensive access to health insurance, we are waiting to see the unfolding future of health-care in America.
Russ Trook purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Russ Trook chose Vista Ridge
We try to maintain a homey feel in the condo. It probably has a bit more than needed as far as furnishings and how it is equipped, but we want you to feel comfortable there. We encourage feedback if you notice something not being there that should be.
What makes this Condo unique
We absolutely consider bookings of any duration, though very surprising to us, has been that the majority of our guest stays have been for month-long, or 2- or 3-month stays. Reasons for travel among our guests have been varied, though one reason stands out far more than others...retired couples visiting adult children and grandchildren who live in our locale. If you appreciate a visit without having to stay in THEIR home, this condo is for you! NO STEPS to climb, a second bedroom so the grand-kids can stay over if you want, and that 'home away from home' feeling.

Nice and comfortable place to stay
The condo was everything we wanted and needed for our stay. Everything was as described and more. Russ' directions to get there were very detailed and easy to follow. The condo is right off Co State Hiway 7 making it super easy to get around the area and Boulder. It was large enough we were able to have some of our family in for a meal and visit.
Thank you to the Trooks for sharing the condo and allowing us to have a special vacation with our family.
Made our vacation great
I enjoyed staying at this condo, right across the street from the clubhouse, fitness room and pool. All accommodations were wonderful, the grocery store was right down the road so we were able to grab everything we needed for our stay.
Great location, I will definitely stay at this condo the next time we are in the area.
We had a great time in Colorado and truly enjoyed our stay. The host has great communication and offered wonderful helpful suggestions. Location is perfect, close to stores and day trips into the mountains. If you are looking for a quiet and comfortable place highly recommend this home. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
We had a great time the property was just what we wanted
We loved Vista Ridge wish I would have brought my golf clubs the course looked great would stay there again
We were delighted to be the accommodation solution for Jeff. Very pleasant to work with, and Jeff was patient with us as he was only our second inquiry handled by "online booking." We're still learning how to do it correctly. He would be welcome back anytime!
Very comfortable stay for 3 weeks.
Great place that is well furnished. We had no issues in the process and Russ (owner) is great to work with.
We were happy to have Mike stay at our condo last month. He was actually a "special guest," being the first "online booking" we had after converting earlier this year. We intended to accept his booking immediately, but due to my lack of understanding of the new process, it took a few tries. Mike was more than patient. Humbling to me, as my goal has always been to provide a "no surprises" solution for guest accommodations. I have no excuse but to be a "pro" at this from now on.
Great condo in a beautiful spot
My husband and I stayed here for one week while moving our daughter into her new house. Great spot and the condo was clean and well equipped. My grandsons loved the pool and playground and even spent a night in the spare room. The owner was great to work with and we enjoyed the area so much we have we bought a condo not far from this one. Five stars from us!
We were delighted to be the accommodation for Elin and her family. I'm actually writing this response to her review almost a year later, only because I noticed a reference to "pet friendly" in the tag line in her review. I suspect this was included as a "canned" response to a check-box or similar and was an oversight. I felt I should just clarify that our condo is a no-pet, and no-smoking property. Again, the guest was a delight, and no problems were noted regarding their stay. Would love to have them again sometime.
Boulder proper is a unique experience. It offers many varied dining and entertainment opportunities. Pearl street, especially during summer, is a big attraction for nightlife. A few miles out, we have especially enjoyed Nissi's as a pleasant venue for musical groups (we like jazz but they book a variety). Dinner is small plate style so you can sample more than just one entree. Closer to the condo, in old town Lafayette, there are a number of delightful places to eat. We have enjoyed Efrain's (Mexican) on the east side of Public Road (main street) but be prepared to wait.
Additional information about rental rates
The rate structure we use doesn't blend perfectly into the VRBO Quotable Rates format. So please note: Rates for 2 and 3 week stays, and our charge for extra persons, may be different (usually lower) than shown. Cleaning fees are typically $85 to $130, depending on length of stay, number of persons, and beds used. There may be a rate premium for dates around the CU graduation and holidays. This does NOT affect my actual rates for longer bookings like a month. Quotable Rates will not reflect the premiums, so you will need to inquire. Additionally our standard security deposit of $750 is increased to $1000 in certain cases (usually because of multiple month stays). It also my be lowered in some cases (very short stays).
