About Buff Toulon

I grew up in Colorado and spent my youth skiing in Breckenridge when it was just a small resort with one mountain. My husband (native of Hawaii) and I met while at Western State College in Gunnison Colorado. We've been married for 37 years, have two grown sons and know we are very lucky to finally have a beautiful retreat in Breckenridge. We visit 3 times a year for at least 2-3 weeks, which ensures that our house is very clean and well-maintained so that our guests will have a quality experience here.

Buff Toulon purchased this house in 2001

Why Buff Toulon chose Forest Hills

Breckenridge is a place with amazing choices in skiing, but it still retains the charm of the old mining days. We believe it is the best resort in all of North America. The Double Diamond house has the perfect location to enjoy all the area has to offer. It is close to town and yet offers an incredible solitude for the times you just want to escape the madding crowd!

What makes this house unique

Views, views and more views! Southwestern exposure that offers lots of sun light while still enjoying the privacy of a wooded lot. Views from just about every room in the house and from the private hot tub. Every cent we make on the house goes back into it. Guests will enjoy brand new leather, reclining furniture, recently replaced carpeting, newly upgrade stove and oven, all appliances in excellent condition and terrific Sleep Number beds. Kitchen is well equipped and includes staples such as flour, sugar, rice, spices, and condiments (squeeze bottles only). We recommend checking the refrigerator before shopping for groceries. Last but not least, we have just installed a new and upgraded hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We intend to make this a very friendly home for all our guests as well as for ourselves and continue to make upgrades twice a year.. We welcome all your comments and will do everything we can to make this home the perfect vacation rental. Thank you. Sincerely, Buff & Pai Toulon

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The location was ideal. Close to town, but far enough away to feel secluded. Amazing views of the mountains. We loved the deck and the hot tub! Lots of room to spread out. A very well-stocked kitchen and a very well-maintained property. Thank you for a wonderful getaway!

A perfect location for our Breckenridge getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family vacation. Spacious, comfortable and clean with incredible views. We could not have been happier with everything. Loved that it was close to town, but still had privacy. Highly recommend!

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights and our only complaint was that our stay was too short. The views are amazing and the home had everything we needed. Maybe next time we will bring the kids because there was plenty of space for everyone.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Double Diamond House. As always, we had an amazing time. The home is extremely clean and well-equipped with everything you could possible require for your visit. The home is most comfortable and offers "to die for" views of the mountains.

Buff is a wonderful communicator and provides you any help you may need.

The home is located very well to access all that the area offers in terms of activities. We especially enjoined the Quandary Grille which has a super happy hour and delicious apps every day of the week.

We recommend this home with the highest regard. You will not be disappointed.

Close to town but still feels private

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful. Owner very helpful. Very nice breeze with the windows open. Perfect Labor Day weekend weather. We liked the comfortable furniture in the living room and the sleep number beds.

The hot tub is huge and very nice.

Superb Property!

  • 5 of 5

Idyllic setting with amazing views. Absolutely loved our stay in this cozy home overlooking the mountains. Everything was provided with consideration towards the utmost comfort of their guests; from the humidifiers in the bedroom and the sleep number beds, to the recliners overlooking the mountains and the well equipped kitchen, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We certainly hope to return someday.
