About Melinda Brittan

We are a Littleton, Colorado family who spend much of the summer in Vail. We love the hiking, biking, rafting and kayaking of summers in Vail, but have less time to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling in the winter.

Melinda Brittan purchased this house in 2016

Very homey, warm, and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

11 of us just came from Texas to celebrate my sisters bachelorette party and I think our favorite part was the house! It was enough room, it felt like a home, it had enough resources to House that many (dishes, towels, beds, TV’s). The hot tub was super easy to deal with! Vail Village and Lionshead were just a 10 minute drive, very convenient. It was a wonderful experience and Mindy the owner was very helpful! She checked in on us and made sure everything was going well and that we had all we needed. All 11 of us unanimously said we would stay in this house again! Thank you Mindy!!

Beautiful house and great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 fit comfortably in the beautiful home. The host Melinda was more than accommodating and generously kind. Everyone in our group loved the shuffleboard table and hot tub. This house is a short walk to the bus stop and very close to grocery and liquor stores as well as great restaurants (west side cafe)! Thanks Melinda for making our stay in Vail such a memorable one !!!

Beautiful house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our ski vacation. This was due in large measure to the house we stayed in. It was easily the nicest home we've stayed in and we've stayed in a lot of them. The location was great - only a few miles from Vail Village and Lionshead. We will definitely return.

A wonderful spacious place, but with a bunch of little concerns

  • 4 of 5

Overall the space and layout was great, but there were a bunch of little obstacles that need to be addressed. Mostly electrical. several high had bulbs in key places were out, several times turning on a light switch popped a breaker and on the last night the cable went out.

There could be more clearly designated recycling bins as well.

Despite these little inconveniences the home is perfect for a family and the downstairs game room is great

Owner's Response: Thanks Andrew, We had our property manager come out and fix the circuit breakers. This did not occur just a few weeks ago when we were up there so it was not something we were aware of. Unfortunately we did not receive a recycling bin from the trash company and they do not pick up recyclables at the same time as the trash. At this time it is not feasible to have someone come by four times a week to put out trash and recycling, and then put those containers away at separate times as well. I am glad overall you enjoyed your stay. Mindy

Beautiful House w/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house able to handle large groups with everyone having their own privacy. Has all the amenities you could want including a game room on the lower floor. Good location in West Vail. We will definitely try and stay here again.
