Ski Vacation for Six Seasoned Skiers
From the moment we walked into this magnificent house with shouts of joy, to the time we sadly closed the door for the final time, we were in awe of the offerings of this home. It was the sixth annual ski trip to the Rockies for me and I can say without question, this was the best VRBO or AirBNB I have ever rented. All of the bedroom accommodations were excellent, each with a comfortable matteress and a well appointed bathroom that gave each of us quiet comfort and privacy. But, it is the luxurious common areas of the house that really makes it shine. The gourmet kitchen with all Viking appliances was phenomenal! I did most of the cooking, and I appreciated the high quality cookware and cutlery. The Webber grill was also exceptional for steaks, salmon, thresher shark, and chicken. The great room consisting of the dining and living room was an elaborate place to gather at the end of the day, in front of the fire. My group was there to ski, and went every day to Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Mountain, an easy drive to each. We kept our skies and boots in the heated garage for easy loading to our vehicle in the morning. We started each day in the kitchen with coffee from two different coffee makers, and also made oatmeal, eggs, fruit, and cereal on various mornings. The convenience of the kitchen made it easy to get out the door in an hour. Everyday after skiing we stopped at the City Market or Whole Foods in Basalt for our dinner items and other groceries, then drove a short distance to our mountain retreat. A highlight of every night was relaxing in the huge, 8 person hot tub, soothing the muscles, and getting us ready for our dinner feast. Tom, our host, and the property manager Victor were always a phone call away. When we had any questions or problems they were handled quickly and efficiently. This was a most memorable week of skiing, comfort, and joy that I will not soon forget. Tom is a fine, friendly man and I thank him for providing his incredible home for me and my friends. I hope that I can come back for another stay during a future ski season, or in the summer with my family. I highly recommend this extraordinary VRBO rental to YOU!

Beyond Beautiful
This property is more amazing then the pictures demonstrate. Super large kitchen which accommodates large crowds. Lots of space for families to fellowship with one another or escape for solitude. We came to Basalt on a ski trip meeting other friends who stayed at a different residence. We hosted 4 families for dinner. It was easy to have all of us together. One big challenge we faced was seating everyone, so we ate in groups to allow everyone to have at seat at the table. We were not allowed to use the garage for our visit which would have been nice with all the ski gear. I think this is a temporary issue. Regardless of the few things mentioned above, it truly was an amazing, jaw-dropping property, with gorgeous views. It was a delight to spend our vacation here!

5/5 Excellent

Great house and views!
We loved this house! The views were stunning and the house is very well maintained. The kitchen is particularly large and well stocked with anything you would need - we cooked most meals in. We used the hot tub daily and it’s quite big. The house is very spacious and we would love to return!

5/5 Excellent

Great location fantastic views
The house is beautiful with plenty of room for the nine of us. Four bedrooms and the study with pullout allowed everyone a private space.Kitchen was great and we cooked all our meals.fully utilizing the immense cook top and ovens.Had a couple of equipment issues which were handled promptly minimizing any significant concerns. Victor the property manager was personable and Tom was easy to work with.We'll consider the property for next year if we decide to ski Snowmass again.

5/5 Excellent

Awesome week in Basalt!
Beautiful home! We have stayed in many beautiful vacation homes, but this was one of our favorites, if not the best! My wife stayed at the house while my children and I skied each day and she enjoyed the beauty and solitude the house offers. There are plenty of rooms to relax and 3 fireplaces, each with their own cozy space. The great room has the most beautiful picture window to view the mountains (along with practically every other room). We had multiple deer sightings and really felt like we were able to escape the hustle and bustle. We skied at Buttermilk and Snowmass, each about a 30 min drive. My wife appreciated the little extras like having a Yankee Candle, plenty of zippy bags, paper towels, towels and 2 “drawer” dishwashers, along with a regular one in the beautiful gourmet kitchen. Victor, the manager, was helpful and was willing to meet us at 11:30 pm the night we arrived, but we said the next day would be fine. The day after it snowed, a snowplow came to clear the driveway. The floors and furniture throughout the home are beautiful! It is obvious that a lot of love and thought went into the building and decorating of this home. A few negatives: the TV wasn’t working properly and Victor came to assist. All my wife could get was the previous renters Netflix selections, but we aren’t big TV watchers, so it was ok. One side of the jacuzzi jets wasn’t working and the in-home sound system didn’t work either...that was a bummer, because we really would have used that. Finally, the renters are not allowed to use the garage, which was disappointing since the walkway was slick getting back and forth from our car each day; we all slipped a couple of times and my daughter really fell hard one day. None of these “negatives” would be enough for us not to highly recommend this home to our friends. We had a great week here and were very sad when it was time to leave.
