Location, Location, makes it all easy. Two major grocery stores, restaurants, all just minutes away. You can drive five minutes to the world class ski resort, or ride your bike to the nearest Starbucks. There is a free shuttle bus 125 yards from the home that picks you up every 15 minutes in the winter and takes you to Lionshead or Vail. If you like to fish, wow there are three major rivers just minutes from the house.
This beautiful home sleeps six. The master bedroom has a select comfort king bed and huge private bath with a jacuzzi tub. Another bedroom is equipped with two twins and a full private bath, the queen bedroom has a temper-pedic mattress and also has a full private bath.

We went on a friends trip to Vail and this house was perfect for us! I've been vacationing in Vail for 30 years and stayed in many places. This house was clean and well maintained and we would definitely stay here again. The location was great, just a few minutes from the mountain. The high ceilings make the place feel very spacious and we loved the wrap around deck and outdoor speakers to listen to while in the hot tub after a long ski day. The master suite is enormous and I slept like a rock in the temperpedic queen bed downstairs which also had its own door to the hot tub. The owner was very easy to work with and very accommodating. She also gave us a heads up to watch our flights because it was snowing the day we left. Overall this place was amazing!
The listing description was very accurate, the layout of the house was absolutely perfect. All of the amenities and finishes of this property were gorgeous. The property owner clearly takes great pride in the home and you can tell by all the little details. Everything from the window treatments, to the amazingly comfy and large sofa, to the well laid out kitchen (and it had everything a cook could need!). The light is just breathtaking in all the windows throughout the home. The owner was VERY responsive and the property was very clean (and I am OCD with cleanliness). I would highly recommend this property. The bus stop is feet away from the property. We could not believe what exceptional value we were getting for the price.
There is a private hot tub and it was like being in a winter wonderland with it snowing and all the beautiful homes around the hot tub that are well kept. The trees provide privacy also. There is a huge garage (one car can fit in it). There was laundry in the garage and that was very convenient for us on a longer trip. There are ensuite bathrooms in each bedroom AND a powder room. UNREAL! I have never had this in any Mountain rental. I have rented so many condos over the course of 20 years and this was far and above THE BEST one I've stayed in.
The master bedroom is upstairs and it was massive. We did not stay in that room so I can't speak to it other than that our friends said there were no towel bars in the bathroom or hand towel hooks, etc. I would recommend adding that (with hot tub towels, ski stuff, etc.). It seems as though the master bedroom had much better linens and newer bedding. We slept in the queen bed downstairs (there is also another 2-twin bed smaller room downstairs). This bed was memory foam and great, but the linens were very old and the pillows also. Again, there were no hooks or towel bars which became very irritating. HOWEVER, these were our only complaints/suggestions. The 3rd bedroom with the twin beds is kind of claustrophobic so I would maybe suggest doing bunkbeds (and updating the linens too).
Nothing can override the wonderful fireplace, the BIG dining room table and nook/bench that was great for big meals we had and playing cards, etc. There is also a gorgeous, scenic wrap-around balcony with a grill.
We were able to get to Vail Village in 10 minutes.
All in all our accommodations made our trip. GREAT HOME!!!
My family of 5 rented this home for the last 2 weeks of December, 2015. Upon arrival, the home was in great condition, very clean. The house was extremely comfortable for our family. The house is well equipped for a ski vacation. It's obviously not just a neglected rental, but someone's cherished home, with a sign at the front entrance to remove your shoes upon entry.
The owner of the home was tremendously responsive. When I noted that the TV in the master bedroom was not working, I received a text later that day telling me the TV had been replaced. With days of snow in the forecast, I requested a new shovel to keep the walk clear. That afternoon, a new shovel was dropped off. Upon departure, I suggested a couple of items that would be beneficial to renters, ie a tea kettle and humidifiers. The owner told me that she would immediately purchase the items.
The West Vail location is convenient to grocery stores and other shopping. It is close to the bus stop, but my suggestion is to plan on spending $25 per day to park in Vail or Lionshead. It is much less of hassle than fighting the bus crowds at peak time.
I would definitely stay in this home again.
