"To escape the Texas heat, we drove to Durango and stayed at this comfy condo during Labor Day week in 2016. We ate the local pizza and stopped by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for some covered almonds while we walked around historical down-town. Loved it so much we returned with close friends plus our little one’s ages 6 to 11 in October! There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep, spread-out, and play board games around the beautiful dining table at night. The condo has everything needed to cook all your meals, drink your coffee by the warm fireplace or wrapped up in a blanket outside on the patio chairs to enjoy the mountain scenery. This place has it all, you won’t be disappointed!"
"Mountain Memories is an impressive property close to town, but its location makes it feel you are much further out in the country. The staff at Durango Colorado Vacations was terrific. The owner of the property, Bill, greeted us on arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. He was always available if we had questions or needed some recommendations on the local area. It’s obvious this team takes pride in this property with how well everything is maintained throughout the entire place. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. We wouldn’t hesitate to book a stay here again when we’re in the area."
"There were six in our group, Heavenly Daze accommodated us perfect. The house was so comfortable, we loved the large open kitchen, and living area. The back deck is huge, we sat around the fire pit every night, and saw shooting stars. The mountain view is Beautiful, we felt the house was very private. We loved how close we were to ski area. Beds were very nice, I loved all the windows in the house. We all agreed that we would be back to stay at Heavenly Daze. Also! I should mention that the ladies who work for Durango Colorado Vacations were very nice, and quick at returning my calls, to answer my questions."
"Our family loved staying at Whitewater Ranch. The setting was so peaceful and beautiful. Between the river, full basketball court, and gorgeous location, our family was sad to leave. The home was large in size, very clean and well appointed. Can't wait to come back with our family in winter as well. A definite 5 star!"
"Best rental property we have stayed in. Huge townhome and great location! Durango Colorado Vacations provided us with outstanding service!"
"The Curry Barn far exceeded our expectations. Nine of us were comfortable both inside and out. The kitchen has ALL the appliances and supplies necessary to accommodate the family. The views are exceptional! Don't hesitate to book your stay. The support people at Durango Colorado Vacations are very responsive."
"ElkPoint 5: We've been going to Durango Mountain Resort for years and have rented several different places. This was absolutely the best experience yet! This home easily housed 6 adults and 4 kids and provided multiple living areas for all of us to spread out. The unit was very well provisioned and the vacation rental company could not have been more accommodating. We can't wait to go back and would highly recommend this property to anyone headed to Durango!"
"My wife, dogs, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house had been remodeled recently which made it nice. Our dogs enjoyed the fenced in yard, front and back. We had a nice evening on the back patio eating pizza and toasting our 50th wedding anniversary with some Malbec. The Horse Gulch Trails (hiking and biking) trail head is just a few blocks away. A number of restaurants are within walking distance.
Lorie Naylor, our contact, was readily available and able to help with real and perceived issues.
Would we stay at the 5th Ave Beauty again? That would be a yes!"
"Whitewater Ranch, Beautiful house and grounds. Our whole family loved the house and the river behind it. Lorie was great to work with! So many activities in the area too."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Curry Barn. The family of 9 had plenty of space to stretch out and relax. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, platters, bowls and all items necessary to feed the crew. Special kudos to Jen who called prior to our visit to ask if we had any questions. The fabulous customer service she extended upon our arrival AND after we left was above and beyond any of our expectations!"
Our family loved gathering in this beautiful home for two weeks! We sure are missing the sounds of the Animas River, especially at night. Full moon over the eastern Hermosa mountains and cliffs was spectacular as we sat around the fire pit next to the river.
The home is very spacious and everyone had plenty of private space. My husband and I are also missing the 'killer' master bathroom suite! The kitchen is very well-stocked (only wish the vent hood insert was operational, as the first couple of days were a little warm in southern Colorado). But we survived and did some great baking on the wonderful outside grill. The beds and linens were wonderful; we slept like rocks!
Loved the outdoor space -- massive beautiful lawn for all sorts of games. We brought yard darts and croquet, but there were several outdoor games provided in the spacious garage. The enormous 'cool' basement is awesome and was a haven on the first warm day or two.
The location is very convenient to Durango and Purgatory activities...golf, shopping, hiking, and our personal favorite: jeep rides in the beautiful San Juan Mountains!
A very big THANKS to Jen from Durango Colorado Vacations...she was extraordinarily quick with responding to our questions and kindly provided a couple of items that we requested.
We will definitely keep this home at the top of the list for another trip to the Rockies.
