Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodations! Very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Ideal location close to town, the ski resort and most important for us, our family who lives in Hermosa. Gorgeous backyard next to the wilderness area...deer every day. The open kitchen living area is perfect for family gathering. We so appreciated our hosts decorating for Christmas...felt just like home. This will be our first choice regardless of season when we visit family again. we highly recommend.

Buyer beware - not recommended

  • 1 of 5

We rented the property for a weekend get away with my parents. We liked it was pet friendly so we could bring our dogs. HOWEVER, there was nowhere to mark how many dogs we were bring during the time of booking. They ended up keeping our ENTIRE deposit because we had extra dogs?? We left the house spotless and picked up after our pets diligently in the back yard. We paid an initial pet fee plus they kept our full deposit.... seriously?? If our dogs had broken or damaged something I could understand, but they did not. I have never had a deposit kept from previous VRBO's rented from. Very disappointing!

Owner's Response: There were multiple opportunities to let us know you had more than one pet. You even signed 2 contracts stating you only had one pet, you never thought to mention you had more? Our contact information is in multiple places and you could have let us know at any time before your arrival. You completely damaged a set of our sheets, which we also deducted for. We did not keep your entire deposit but did deduct the two additional pet fees that you should have paid as well as the cost of the sheets you ruined. It is unfortunate that you are trying to harm our reputation when you were less than honest with how many pets you were bringing.

Comfortable & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another couple for 5 nights. The home is very comfortable and the sound of the water in the creek behind the house was very relaxing. The kitchen is quite well provisioned with everything you would need to make a meal. The house and the yard are well maintained and we were all very happy with the property. We were visited by deer and also a black bear that tried to climb the neighbor's tree. The house is about 10 minutes from downtown Durango which was very convenient. When visiting Durango in the summertime, be sure to visit the produce stand in the high school parking lot on Hwy. 550. We go every time we are in Durango and, because we drive to Durango, we always bring back a couple of cases of Palisades peaches. They are the best!

Quiet, beautiful, relaxing, perfect location....could go on and on. We can't wait to come back and stay again! We hardly turned on the Tv because the view and the backyard was all we wanted to state at!

One of the best vacation properties we've seen

  • 5 of 5

Creekside Bungalow had it all. The location was stunning and convenient. It was impeccably clean, nicely decorated and appointed. The owners even hired a herd of mule deer to visit us in the evenings...Just kidding, they showed up for free. The only reason I gave this 5 stars is because more weren't available. This place is a true gem.
