About tamara jay
we live in nearby Montrose for the past 25yrs, having moved here from the LA area. Our condo in Mountain Village became our family get away from weekends skiing, snowboarding, restaurants and time together. then summer fishing and escaping the heat, hiking, and biking. we now have grandkids and family in Texas so welcome kids and Texans. I grew up in the Phx area and we now have many renters from Arizona. my dad is in his in 90 there and would often visit us at the condo
tamara jay purchased this Condo in 1995
Why tamara jay chose Mountain Village
Winter we are a short walk from the lifts, and chondola which is a chair lift and short gondola for walkers that takes you up to the mountain Village Core and the other gondolas to go to town. Gondolas are free and a magnificent view and convenience to get around. summer we have numerous bike trails and hiking just out the door. we are a quiet area in Mountain Village so appeal to people who wish to get away from hustle and bustle

We used the shuttle and gondola regularly. The hosts info was accurate and useful.
Good location. Beautiful area. Our group was very comfortable.
Tamara’s place was the perfect launchpad for a weekend of mountain fun! Just enough space for everyone, and the garage was a bonus for bike storage!
We’re already planning a return trip for next summer!
We loved Mountain Village!
We had a great stay at Tamara's condo! Telluride and Mountain Village are a great place to vacation. Their condo was comfortable for our family of six, but there are a few things we wish we'd have known before booking:
- Consider the wifi non-existent (as of August 2019 anyway). The fastest speed we saw all week was 1mbps, and it was often slower than that. We used data plans all week for movies, email, work, etc. instead because the wifi simply didn't work (even after rebooting the router). In speaking with Tamara, it sounds like this is being upgraded.
- This was definitely a property that has hosted pets in the past, and my spouse and son who have pet allergies suffered somewhat as a result. It was generally clean, but there was definitely pet hair and pet dander around.
- This complex is a residential property rather than a resort-type property. There aren't really any common amenities (pool, lawn, etc.), and you'll be staying near full-time residents. We suspected this going in, and the neighbors were friendly. If your group likes to party, this may not be the best fit for you.
We loved the view, how close the condo was to the trails, how close the condo was to the bus stop, and how well-stocked the kitchen was. We own a unit we rent out through VRBO as well, and I found Tamara to be very responsive to my questions. Also, the garage was a life saver for storing our bikes.
Finally, our post-stay interaction with Tamara was very awkward (we were accused multiple times of having more than the stated 6 people in the condo, even though we did not [we used the king bed in the guest bedroom because one set of bunk beds was so squeaky that our four kids couldn't sleep together in that room]; we were accused of staining the carpets, but I'm obsessive-compulsive and we don't wear shoes inside; and we were accused of leaving a negative review, even though this is the only review we've left). Tamara was apologetic when she realized her mistake after many messages back and forth, and I haven't removed a star as a result (although I was tempted to), but I thought you may find this info useful. We've been using VRBO for 9 years (and rent our own condo out on VRBO as well) and I've never had an experience like it with another user. Other than that, we loved our time in Mountain Village
Yup I messed up after their stay. No excuse
I don’t think any other renter has experienced that. I’m not perfect
The internet wi fi is being upgraded in the area in the near future with a new line being laid . I don’t know if the renter had called while he was there if we could have improved things. It’s difficult if renters don’t let us know. We had no conversations but correspondences before and after through VRBO and texts. I checked after his arrival if all was well and let us know if there was anything he simply said “ beautiful”
Yup we are pet friendly. Our couches have a fabric difficult to get all the pet hair out although I think they usually do. Renters have raved about their comfort But it’s time to replace and we will do so with more pet friendly fabric. This renter was a last minute renter and cleaning accommodated to get it ready quickly for them. I’m sorry it wasn’t up to their standards. We will remain pet friendly as we love pets and those who travel with them. I can only go by our cleaning lady who mentioned stains weren’t there before. I did not withhold any security deposit # of people I confused with another renter. Our interchanges were mutually disquieting Having rented our condo out for over 15 yrs and indeed this was unique
We’ve loved having our renters and aim to truly have them happy. Sorry this renter wasn’t happy and certainly take responsibility for the post rental experience.
We also try to gauge who is a good fit for our place by trying to get to know them more before renting and know their expectations.
Great value in Telluride
Property was as listed. We parked our car upon arrival and did not get back in until we were headed out of town which was great! The shuttle to the gondola runs twice an hour. The condo was quiet and well stocked for cooking, watching movies and playing games. We would definitely stay here again.
Thx much for the review It’s exactly what we aim for people to feel and experience. Hoping your golden enjoyed too! I know you loved having him there.
Would love to have you back
Tamara and Kieran. Owners
Everything was just as advertised
Love the bus that comes every 30 minutes
festivals, free summer concerts nearby
