About the property

Great home for a large group, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Located just 10 minutes from Vail Village by the FREE bus (bus stop is at the end of the drive way!), or a 15 minute WALK to the Lionshead Gondola, restaurants and shops, this house is in the ideal location for those who dont want to deal with a long bus ride or the craziness/expensiveness of the Vail parking garages. Stay in our home and see the mountain from your deck! Our home is ready for you and your friends or family.

Our four bedroom house comes equipped with a huge outdoor deck, seven-person hot tub and yard. The kitchen has an open floor plan, granite counter tops, hardwood floor, stainless steel appliances and every cooking utensil you could need.

The main master bedroom has a new king-size bed, fireplace, TV, DVD player, private deck, jacuzzi tub, and steam sauna. The second master bedroom has a king-size bed and private full bathroom. The third and fourth bedrooms come with twin-size bunk beds and share a three quarter bath. There is also a secret loft space that houses two single beds. The kids love it! For additional guests, there is a queen-size sofa-bed in the den/sun-room.

The house is perfect for entertaining with its large, spacious kitchen which opens up to a warm inviting family room on the main floor (with a fireplace, grand piano, TV, & DVD player) and a second family room on the second floor with a TV and DVD player (perfect for big groups – giving everyone a little privacy).


Adjacent to the house is a great park with a children’s playground and sand volleyball court. We have some fun sledding with the really little ones right in the back yard! Come and enjoy everything Vail has to offer.

Great house within walking distance to Lionshead

  • 5 of 5

The house is as advertised. We had 3 couples and enjoyed having our own bathrooms. The house is also ideal for 2 couples with 2 or more children each. The kitchen is well equipped. We made our breakfasts and dinners at the house. You are within 1.5 miles from a Safeway for groceries. We stored our skis at the Valet in Lionshead and made the easy 10-15 minute walk to the Lionshead Gondola each day. The hot tub on the deck is an added bonus. We had a great vacation and would definitely rent this home again.

Very nice we had a great time lots of room

  • 5 of 5

We have rented before, but this house was by far the best. so close to the bus lines, easy to get to the places we wanted to go to. We owned a 2 bedroom in Silverthorne, we sold it 3 years ago when we moved to Delaware, it was too small for our growing family of grandkids.

This was great for the kids. We could rent it again in two years as our kids go every other year

to their parents & parent-in-laws.

Thank you

Convenient, clean and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice experience at this property. The best part was the vail bus pickip practically at the end of the driveway. Not fancy, but spacious, clean, and lots of beds which is what we were looking for.

Great location and tons of bed space...has everything you will need for your stay

  • 5 of 5

For anyone looking to stay close to Vail/BC, this is a great rental.


- Shuttle drop off is literally at the end of the driveway

- House has all the essentials needed for large groups and or multiple families

- While it only has 4 rooms, there are a lot of beds available

- Grill and hot tub are great additions

- Easy access to I-70 if you are headed to other resorts

- Grocery stores and other shops are just down the road

The only thing I would say is that some of the furniture in the house is a little old and damaged. Specifically there were some dinning chairs that were broken when we arrived. It didn't keep them from being functional and really was not an issue, but something that could be fixed easily.

Overall, I highly recommend this rental. The owner was great at communication and accommodating our group. They are very flexible if able to be with checkin and always available.

If you are coming to Vail, this is a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback Adrian! We took care of the broken chair and will be replacing much of the furniture over the summer. We hope you'll come back and stay with us again!!

Great ski vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as described and well equipped to handle the 6 of us cooking breakfast and dinner nightly. Lots of space to gather in the living room and an amazing new hot tub. The bus stop can't be any closer and the 10 minute ride to Vail was quick and easy.

This was the by far the best vacation rental my family and I have experienced. The house is well equipped with all necessities, the locations was great and the house has plenty of room for a large family. Look forward to renting again in the Winter for skiing!
