When you rent my unit you have full access to my individual one bedroom one bathroom unit, but do not get full access to all resort amenities. For example, if you have a question about Vail, I am your concierge, email or call me, or check online with the free WiFi. Do not go to the front desk. If you use the guide I provide upon booking, and communicate with me you will get the benefit of long time local knowledge.

Note about getting scheduled surgery in Vail: I have had many happy visitors who visited Steadman Hawkins or other amazing health resources in the valley.

The hospital parking lot is approximately a 10 minute drive away.

A note on pets:
Pets are not allowed, this is an HOA rule and I can not be flexible on it, the best I can do is refer you to a local Kennel, sorry. This includes emotional support animals and means this unit is not appropriate for guests that require an emotional support animal due to a disability. If you have an *accessibility* animal please contact me in advance to coordinate.
Dining and groceries note:
There is a restaurant called Blu's on site, there is an incredible selection of restaurant's in Vail Village which has free parking after 3PM in the winter and parking is always free in the summer. There is a small but well equipped market called Sim's with a small liquor store a couple of minute drive away from the unit. There are larger grocery stores about a 10 minute drive away.
When you have a confirmed reservation you will get a fifteen+ page condo guide which has been correctly described as "very comprehensive" by guests. It includes everything from specific restaurant ideas to the number of forks to expect in the kitchen to instructions for connecting to the bluetooth audio system and much more. It will come by email, usually within 24 hours of booking. It will help you plan for the best possible vacation to Vail, Colorado one of the best places on earth!
Security: There is a security camera covering the outdoor patio area near the entrance to the unit. This is for my security and yours. The patio light detects motion so you can have a well lit arrival anytime of day.

The unit is located in a quiet neighborhood just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Vail Village to have natural beauty, like the summer hummingbirds and the year round view of Gore Creek. It's close enough to be convenient to the restaurants and shops of Vail city center too. In the summer the location is great for hikes and bike rides. There is a huge park just down the road (Bighorn). Elk sightings are common during calving season. This is a great area in Vail Valley which has an incredible ski mountain, unparalleled dining options and frequent world class events.
This listing has hundreds of five star reviews, and whenever I receive a suggestion for improvement I do my best to address it, that said here are some things that can't change. There is no air conditioning, (that amenity is very rare in mountain towns like Vail). In the peak of summer heat you may have to use windows and screens for natural cooling at times that make sense. There are neighbors above and below and on either side. This means you have to be respectful, and also hope for the best from neighbors. Please contact me if you have a noise issue. There is a nearby highway, you can just see it through the trees and with windows open you can occasionally hear traffic. It is never louder than conversation. I adore the location, but you can not walk to the slopes. You can ski home (contact me for details if interested, avalanche beacon required) but this is priced competitively for where it is.
