Why Gracious Hosts Tom and Maria Brunner. Experts on maximizing enjoyment. chose Durango
We recognized Cascade Village as a mountain chalet-like village that invoked our memories of Old World, edge-of-the-wilderness childhood experiences. We wanted that authentic, mesmerizingly beautiful, raw and secluded mountainside feel. We love the friendly, non-snobby atmosphere of Cascade Village. Skip the over-developed, resort crowd bustle. Our condo Home has unbeatable, panoramic views above the treeline. Our views of endless, rolling Aspen Spruce woodlands is the perfect backdrop to our many nights of family get-togethers, as we sit fireside or on our covered, over-sized patio. We have traveled all over the World…and constantly asked ourselves, is this THE place we could fall and stay in LOVE with so deeply that it would become our Family’s year-round destination? Finally, a place we could live – as the Costa Ricans say – “Pura Vida!” Pure Life. Our Family felt an immediate and instinctual bond for Durango and Cascade Village. And Casa de Pura Vida was born…We Hope you will come join us and Live Pura Vida! We do not think you can get a purer Colorado experience than with us... Durango possesses an almost unheard of (even compared to other Colorado towns) convergence of sporting, outdoor, sightseeing, musical, shopping, spa (check out the 114 degree water at Pagosa Springs) and culinary/nightlife adventures. Durango has won over 84 awards just between 2008 and 2016 alone. Many of them from nationally recognized publications like National Geographic, TripAdvisor, Ski, Forbes, Sunset, USA Today, True West, Outdoor, Country Living, and Buzzfeed. We wish you Pura Vida! Please Care for our Home the same as if it was yours, and we promise to treat you like Family! Happy Trails! Owners Tom and Maria
What makes this Condo unique
We offer a true mountainside chalet getaway experience with all of the modern luxuries of a hotel, but without any crowdedness. Our lodging, bordering and directly overlooking the San Juan National Forest, makes you feel truly IN THE WILDERNESS...giving you the secluded Old World, Colorado lodge experience. Our vacation rental chalet unit has been described by a long time Durango realtor as one of the nicest 2BD, 2BA condos in our community!!! Reasons include we have uniquely large, covered decks with some of the best views in our Community. For Maria and I, and our children Will and Katie, we all immediately felt an instinctual connection with the warmth and tasteful customization of our mountainside gem. As an end unit, Casa de Pura Vida has a uniquely warm, cozy feel. Throughout the day light spills in from the large side picture window as well as from the large sliding glass doors through which from our sofa you have Million Dollar views! You deserve to feel like you are completely getting off the grid and we deliver that Magical, Rejuvenating Lifestyle!
