About LARRY AND JULIE

Real Estate Developer in Los Angeles, California

What I enjoy about my home in VAIL is being next to the Vail Cascade Resort Chair Lift, walking, biking, and hiking trails, and Vail's only Gold Medal Trout Stream just outside our door. The short walk to Vail Village follows a picturesque paved route along Gore Creek! WE GUARANTEE YOU WILL LOVE OUR HOME!

LARRY AND JULIE purchased this chateau / country house in 2002

Why LARRY AND JULIE chose Vail

Fantastic Location, with the best Views, and the entire house was completed re-modeled in 2010 with all new everything! We are just west of Lionshead in one of the Vail Valleys true gems-The Vail Cascade 5-Star Resort Village neighborhood- providing a rare combination of tranquility, amenities and services!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Best Location,Views, and Comfort in VAIL, We enjoy skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowshowing, hiking, biking, mountain biking, incredible restaurants, and the best activities in the World!

What DISTINGUISHES Cascade Village from other residential areas are its amenities, anchored by the renowned Vail Cascade Resort, with wonderful Aprie-Ski and dining at the Fireside Bar and Atwate on the Gore Creek Restaurant. The Luxurious ARIA SPA offers a complete health club with a full compliment of workout equipment, classes, private training, courts, and swimming pool. Transportation is a breeze for area residents and guests with dial-a-ride service and the Vail Shuttle Bus coming by every 10-15 minutes!

Cascade House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the house in Cascade Village was fabulous. We had a group of guys in for a ski trip and the house worked nicely. Plenty of room in the living areas. Big, well appointed kitchen with plenty of room to cook. The view through the wall of windows in the great room offers a beautiful view of Vail Valley. The grill on the deck was great and the boys made good use of the hot tub.

The master suite is beautiful and the other bedrooms were great. Plenty of beds to sleep the gang. The 60" curved screen Samsung TV adds a nice touch for sports or movie lovers.

It's a short walk to the Cascade lift where they store your skis and boots overnight at no charge. Cascade Village is a find. It's a bit more quiet than Vail Village or Lionshead, but offers walk up access to the lifts and nearby Cascade Resort has fine dining and a casual après ski vibe at Atwater.

The Cascade House has it all! We'll be back.

What an awesome home! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute at the Blivas home in Vail. Very easy ski access and total comfort après ski. I would come back here in a heartbeat.

Best Value We have Found

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of 4 couples that have stayed for a week in this fantastic home the past 3 years! The house is always clean and supplied as though we lived in it. The kitchen is well stocked and we easily prepare meals for 8 with all of the glasses, dishes, etc. Beds are comfortable, the view is awesome from the deck. The location is excellent. It is an easy 3 block walk to the Charter Sports rental shop along Gore Creek. The shop is fantastic for rentals: easy to work with, new equipment, friendly staff. They will store all the gear so no hassle in hauling it. Larry and Julie are so easy to communicate with. Having looked at other houses in the area... we believe this is truly the best overall value in Cascade.

Beautiful comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We loved the home, it was reasonably priced, we loved the hot tub after skiing, and it provided lovely accommodation for us (4 couples, who were there for a weeklong ski trip). Some things to know: there is no shuttle service to this house, but there is parking for three vehicles. The road up to the house is a fairly steep hill, which happened to be covered with thick ice and was very narrow due to steep snowplow banks when we were there, so walking down to Cascade lift ended up being too treacherous. Most days we drove down to Donovan Park, and walked to the shuttle stop. This did take some coordination every morning and at the end of our ski day, with 8 people involved. Really, the lack of shuttle service to this lodging was our only complaint, especially as we had come to expect good convenient shuttle service from prior years' visits to Vail at a variety of lodgings. We would certainly give this home five stars if it weren't for this one issue.

Owner's Response: WE are so happy you loved our home and all the amenities, views, comfort and of course the BEST LOCATION. However, Vail has had more SNOW in 2014 than any Ski Resort in the World and of course this makes for a more difficult situation walking to ski lift etc. We appreciate the 5-Star Rating and hope you will return for a repeat GUEST DISCOUNT!

Fantastic Vail vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Vail home was a fantastic place for a multi-couple ski getaway. Each of the bedrooms are equally wonderful so everyone was happy and the house lends itself beautifully to multiple cooks in the well appointed kitchen. The easy walk into the village or to the shuttle allowed non-skiers easy access to explore as well. The homeowners went out of their way to ensure we had a perfect week. We cannot wait to return!!

We could not have picked a better, more beautiful home for our recent Vail trip!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently returned from an amazing stay at this Vail house that was in a perfect location. It was a guys snowboarding trip with 8 of us and the accommodations worked out perfectly. We were easily able to walk down to the lift at Cascade village (lift #20) and at the end of the day we effortlessly checked our snowboards into overnight storage at Charter Sports, which is right next to the lift, so that we wouldn't have to haul them back and forth. The walk to and from the lift took an average of 7-8 minutes which makes going with a larger group great since everyone can get riding on their own schedule. Assuming that everyone is at least in average shape, I don't feel that a car is truly necessary for this property since the chairlift is close and the shuttle system around Vail is very efficient. I'm not saying that a car isn't a nice luxury to have, but I will say that we won't be renting one the next time we visit this home. The walk to the shuttle stop is approx. 11-12 minutes and from there you can get pretty much wherever you would like to go. There is a Safeway grocery store that can be accessed via the Vail shuttle or, like we did the first night, you can take a taxi for about $15, including tip, each way. Lionshead and Vail Village are not far away but I wouldn't say that they are walkable during the ski season. Probably in the warmer months it would be a pleasant walk along the Gore creek. We had a fantastic stay during the five nights we were there and I won't hesitate to stay at this property the next time we visit Vail...which I hope is soon!! Thanks, Larry!
