"The Vespasian's condo was a great place for our first family ski vacation. The kitchen had a nice Waring Pro flip waffle maker, tons of pots and pans, coffee mugs, and utensils. We pretty much ate every meal at the condo, so it made things a lot easier for the 7 of us (4 adults and 3 kids). The condo even had Saran wrap and foil. I never remember to bring those things along, but this condo had them.
The condo has nice water pressure and only once did we run out of hot water. All of us were taking showers. The condo has a small stacked washer and dryer. We had to run 2 loads for the towels before we checked out. So before you leave, plan ahead. Wash 1 load the day before and wash the second load as you are packing. They ask that you leave the towels in the dryer.
If you have little ones, be careful of the wall heater. We never used it since it wasn't very cold when we were there, but if it's on, I'm sure it would get very hot. It's at their eye level. The condo has an electronic fireplace too. It gave off heat and looked pretty cool.
The kids loved playing the board games (Sorry, Life, and Battleship). We watched some TV, but there weren't that many channels and they were a little blurry. Bring movies. I think they had a Blu-ray player. The internet was really bad. They provided a Mifi for free, but it's very slow. It made things a bit rough to try to work (which I shouldn't have been doing anyways). Hopefully they'll get high speed internet sometime soon. Cell service was pretty bad as well in the condo. We had Sprint and Verizon.
The king bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The sheets were really soft. We never heard any neighbors. It's a long walk to the ski lift, but there is a shuttle bus that will pick you up. I think it costs $1 to be picked up by the condo or you can walk over to the ski resort parking lot (which is also very close) and get picked up for free. We saw a family of deer while riding on the shuttle to go tubing.
We had a great time in Angel Fire at the Vespasian's condo. We had no issues while staying there. It's an affordable, nice, well stocked condo."
