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 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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Nice and comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Thank you!!

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.


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $750
cleaning fee $100

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).

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
