About the property

Exquisitely Appointed 3 Br/2.5 Ba Duplex - 6 adult maximum; 4 adult, 4 kids

Our home is a luxurious duplex located between Vail and Beaver Creek ski resorts. We are less than a 10 minute drive to either resort. In addition to being in the gorgeous Vail Valley our home is located next to majestic mountains and surrounded by tall and mature pine, spruce, aspen and other trees. A tranquil pond graces our backyard creating a serene setting for all seasons. In the summer golf options abound with the Eagle-Vail golf course is right outside the front door as well as many other terrific golf courses available throughout the Vail Valley. A nice pocket park is located just across our quiet cul de sac street for the kids to burn off some energy in the summer. Our home was completely and totally remodeled with high end finishes in 2012. It is appointed with double-slab granite counter tops, stainless appliances, alder wood cabinets throughout. Our mountain comfort furnishings, including a sizable sectional sofa, bunk beds in the kids' bedroom, a king sized bed in the master bedroom, and a queen sized bed in the 2nd bedroom make our home a perfect family retreat! ***NEW - our neighborhood just added a new ski shuttle to Vail that runs Sat/Sun each week this ski season!***

Great location and accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. We could walk to the park, pool, golf course, bike park, and a couple of restaurants. We were a short drive or bike from our favorite places in Vail, Avon, Minturn, BC, and Edwards. The house set up was good. We enjoyed dining on the back porch in front of the pond. Kitchen had all the necessities. We stayed 2 weeks in July. There were a few warm days where we used fans to nap upstairs. We enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and the cool mountain air at night. Appliances were all very nice. The neighborhood is kid and pedestrian friendly. We had a wonderful vacation.

Excellent House

The owners attention to detail and the cleanliness of the house was excellent. The location is convenient to both Vail and Beaver Creek. I highly recommend the owner and their house to prospective customers.
