Our family of 5 could not have been more pleased with our Christmas vacation rental with Brad! When we arrived, we were blown away with the beauty of the town-home and setting (pictures really do not do this place justice). The interior cabin was beautifully laid out and we hit the weather just perfectly (the best snow is years, the locals say). We searched many months on the best deal for our vacation, and to be honest, since this was the cheapest one we could find, I was a bit skeptical on the quality. Let me say that this 3 bedroom/3 bath was at least $1000 cheaper than any other 2 bedroom we could find in the same vicinity. We wanted a ski in/ski out that was big enough for our family to enjoy without being on top of one another. Each bedroom had its own private bathroom! This was key to our comfort, in my opinion. Also, the gas fireplace was incredible on how much heat it put out. We are in the beginning stages of building a home, and we took pictures of the brand so we can purchase one of our own.
Upon arrival, we had 2 huge roller carts to help bring all of our stuff up to the top floor. The elevator was a huge bonus! The ski lockers were perfect and very handy to have for our skis and boards. The heated pool and hot-tub were used every night and were very nicely kept.
The craftsmanship of this rental was very surprisingly well-done! It had solid-core doors, granite counter tops and beautiful wooden and slate floors! If I had to pick on one thing, it would be the dated kitchen appliances. To our family, this was not a big deal. We cooked every meal and had no problems. I had forgotten that it also had its own washer and dryer, which was a pleasant surprise and life saver!
Also, before we came, we noticed the out-dated TVs that were pictured. We contacted Brad before coming and he told us new flat-screens would be installed, and they were! Of course, our kids were super excited since they are big "gamers"!
My sister and her family were staying in a rental at Vail the same week. They came down to ski with us one day and they could not get over how great our place was! They said, they were "so jealous". lol
We absolutely could not have asked for anything more in a vacation home! This was the best stay our family has every had during a vacation. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone coming to Steamboat. We are looking forward to coming back next year and hopefully staying in the same town-home!
