On a scale of 1-10 for my overall satisfaction of the property and experience, I would give it a 9. The "Pros" are numerous. No property is perfect but this one came pretty close. Aside from a couple small setbacks, which the owner Angela graciously rectified, the property delivered on all fronts and Ill most certainly be using this property again in the future. We were a group of 7 adults and this suited us perfectly. Property was as described (and then some).
Thanks to Angela for taking care of us.
Below I've honestly and matter-of-factly listed the few Cons and the numerous Pros of my experience.
Pros: (They are numerous and too many to fully list here)
-Located 500 feet up the hill from the Ritz; free shuttle is available and is very prompt and makes for a fast transition back and forth
-Mtn bike trails, hiking, pool/spa are all literally minutes away and provide lots of activities for all your guests
-Full access to Ritz pool, spa, facilities: Look photos up online; enough said. You won't get FREE access these amenities at most other VRBO rentals
-Aside from staying in a room at the Ritz, you are essentially staying at the hotel; you have full access to the property, restaurants, activites, etc. This home is a no brainer if you don't care to be located directly on prop
-Sizable bedrooms and bathrooms that are well kept and clean
-Updated modern decor (minus the Xmas decorations) creates a warm, luxurious, relaxing environment; perfect for relaxing, cooking dinner, etc.
-Kitchen was small but had ample supplies: we had a personal chef cook dinner for 2 nights and most everything he needed in terms of kitchen utensiles, pots, pans, dishes, trays, etc, was already provided
-Home was well stocked with dishes, utensils, cooking accessories, toiletries (Even had Aveda shampoo/conditioner/lotions in all bathrooms), etc
-Access to in house washer/dryer
-Overall a very well maintained, well cleaned, and amenities filled home. Exactly what you would expect for a $3M+ Luxury rental home next to a Ritz Carlton in Beaver Creek
Cons: (To the owners credit, these were all rectified after the fact)
-BBQ grill ran out of propane after 10 minutes
-Property manager was not able to provide a solution in a timely manner; had to "pause" cooking dinner for 30 minutes to run and refill ourselves
-Back patio and Front door porch was not hosed down/cleaned/free of dirt; had to spend 15 mins wiping down tables, cleaning seat cushions, washing BBQ grill, etc
Beautiful home! Very spacious and clean. Great location! We would definitely stay there again.
We used this beautiful unit for a ski vacation we enjoyed with two other families (6 adults + 5 kids). There was plenty of room for everyone. Finishes throughout are high quality. The common room is large and comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you need and there is a gas grill on the back deck as well. We enjoyed several home cooked meals together, relaxing at home rather than going out. Owners even have apple TV so you can show your days pictures on the living room TV!
Two quibbles. First, the upper bunks in the bunk room have a sloping roof line intruding that makes it kind of tight. My 15 year old daughter thought it was too confining to sleep up there, but if you have small kids they might not mind. Also, access to the slopes is up some steps and along/across the road -- maybe 75-100 yds in total --- where you can step onto the Rouglock trail and ski to the Bachelor Gulch chair. Some might not consider this ski in/out, although we found it acceptable.
My family, brother's family and parents were fortunate enough to call this fantastic home ours for the holidays. We were the first guests, as it had apparently just come on the rental market after undergoing a major top to bottom remodel, and it shows. The home is amazing, the décor was first class, and the set up and location can't be beat. We have stayed at the Ritz in the past, but wanted a bit more room and living space, but still wanted to be near enough to all of the action, and the location of this townhome was perfect. We were able to ski and (walk &) ski out of the unit with ease...but on a few of the colder days, the kids didn't want to make the traverse so we called the shuttle and it was there within minutes. What a great service! There is a two car garage that has incredible custom, built-in ski storage (even with cubbies with plugs for all of the heated gear). This is one of the nicest private properties we have ever had the opportunity to stay in, has obviously been outfitted by owners with excellent taste, and we are already planning our next trip back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
