We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with our two teenage children. It was very comfortable for four of us, but the place is good for 6 people: 2 per bedroom and 2 can sleep on the sofabed in the living room. There was also a free covered parking space for our car just behind the building. The location is unbeatable! We were 50 yards from the Eagle Bahn Gondola that made our life very comfortable. We did not have to get up early to be on the slopes among the first ones in the morning. But it was in the afternoon, after a long day of skiing when we really appreciated the close proximity of our rooms. Though the condo was not a renovated one it was clean and comfortable. The master bedroom had a king bed and the other bedroom had 2 twin beds. All of them were very comfortable. The bathrooms were old and VERY small, but clean and equipped with all the necessary stuff. The kitchen was old, but clean and well supplied. The living/dining room was cozy, but big enough with a fireplace, TV set and DVD player. There was wireless internet access in the room for a small charge. The maintenance staff fixed the broken bathroom faucet within hours of our report. We only had problems with opening the sliding door to the balcony, and starting the fireplace. The condo is in the heart of the nice little village of Lionshead, where there are restaurants, ski shops, other retail shops, a general store, etc. The free shuttle took us to Vail Village within minutes. Our teenagers loved the location!
This is an older condo building, not a luxury place so if you want to stay in one of those or you have special needs this is not a right place for you. There is no elevator and no bell boy service so you have to carry your luggage to the second or third floor. The rental agency provides room service only every third day for no extra cost. However, if you want to enjoy skiing all day and stay in a moderate nearby place, Lionshead Arcade is a good bargain. This condo is not cheap, but the updated ones in Lionshead or Vail Village cost substantially more.
