We stayed for a month; from mid July to mid August 2012 and we did not want to leave.
Start with the Location: It doesnt get any better.Close to everything but not so close that you hear street noise or late night parties. You can walk everywhere or take the shuttle that stops about 3 min walk from your door. Most condos have an amazing view of vail mountain and many face Gore creek as well. Yes...it's right on the creek, and yes you can hear it.! Pool with spa and 'waterfall' great place to wind down or veg.
Staff: The best there is. Joy, the manager, will do whatever she can to make your stay a stellar one. Front desk Craig and Jen (you'll want to adopt them). make you feel like family. They will arrange for tickets, reservations, transportation as well as be your experts on where to hike and bike. Even the property maintenance guys know you by name if you are there more than a day.
Accomodations and amenities: We rented a 2 bdrm 2 bath even though it was just the 2 of us; in order to accomodate a few visitors during our month long stay. Beautifully furnished condo. The kitchen is basic but functional and had everything I needed within reason but lacked ample serving bowls. We lucked out with a washer dryer, not all units have one. Great gas fireplace, flat screen tv, gas grill on really nice balcony.
We put our name on the list for next summer and are already wishing it was July 2013.
