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

Amazing Views!!! Great House!!! Did I Mention Amazing Views.....

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Double Diamond house! What a wonderful trip. This house has the most amazing views from the great room, bedrooms and hot tub! The home is a very short drive to downtown Breckenridge, Frisco and even Vail. Because we are not skiers, we enjoyed snow tubing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing and dog sledding. As the reviews have said, the house is highly functionable. There are many many many spices available for making great meals each evening. A big plus for us (from SC) ... the ease of parking! We had two days of snow but were able to get in and out with no fears. The garage even has a stunning view of the mountains. Thanks to Buff for making this trip so wonderful - such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend!!!!!

Great location in Breckenridge

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this home during a spring skiing trip to Breckenridge. The owners are super friendly, the view is outstanding and the home is lovely. Very comfortable layout. Lots of room and comfy beds. The home is 5 minutes from the free parking lot where you can catch a shuttle to the gondola that takes you to the base of Peak 7. We also loved the hot tub! We highly recommend this property for your ski vacation or mountain adventure.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking time to write a great review. We're always happy to hear our guests enjoyed themselves. We just posted a short video showing that new hot tub being delivered over the roof of the house by crane if you're interested in seeing. It's pretty dramatic and was quite a feat to get it replaced. Really glad you enjoyed it!

Breckenridge Beauty

  • 5 of 5

The property has a fabulous vantage point overlooking the valley and town of Breckenridge with a the ski resort and Ten Mile Range in the background. To make it even better there are high ceilings and a glass wall facing the view! It is nice having a garage in the winter and the private hot tub is a bonus to gather with friends. Buff is an excellent property manager and very pleasant. I will be back!

Dramatic views of Breckenridge

  • 5 of 5

The view from the house was stunning. The hot tub was an amazing treat after a day on the slopes. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed leisurely breakfasts each morning. The location of the house was outstanding for running into town for shopping and dinner’s and daily activities.

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

The view alone is worth the price of admission. Spectacular doesn't really do it justice. The home was marvelously equipped with everything imaginable. It was a nice blend of cozy and spacious so that if we wanted to be in the same room playing cards or watching movies, it accommodated all of us and if we wanted to be in our own space there was room for that too. Overall, the place was great and I would recommend it to anyone.
