“Large home, lots of amenities, high on the hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This large home was wonderful for our children and their families. We had plenty of beds for 11 of us. We had two small children who did well although the deck was off limits for the 1 year old, and the surrounding land was steep so no outdoor play. There was both a highchair and pac-n-play provided. It was quite clean, kitchen was equipped well, and had a beautiful view looking west to the Divide. We were near the YMCA camp and the RMNP and a short drive to Estes proper. We enjoyed eating most of our meals in the home and hanging in the family areas. There is a hot tub which was nice but the head rests need replaced due to oxidation. The outdoor grill was nice but wouldn't heat adequately. We contacted the Windcliff office and someone was sent up and apparently tried to repair while we were absent, but we didn't notice a difference. Just wouldn't heat adequately. We also notified Windcliff regarding the freezer portion of Subzero frig also not being cold enough despite adjustments to keep ice cream frozen. Made ice but quite slow. Being the July 4 weekend, not surprised that they weren't completely repaired but it would have been nice. Also, the back patio area on the lower level was in the midst of renovation so we didn't use the area and the construction related dumpster blocked some access to the driveway parking. Overall, still a very nice home, pretty upscale but just needs some improvements. The view was worth all of it!

Thanks for your review. We would like everyone to know that our occupancy limit is 8 persons due to zoning. We made an exception since this guest had small children with them.

We apologize that a new roof was being installed on Sponsel that overlapped your stay, accounting for the dumpster and back patio area. The new roof is scheduled for completion by the end of July and is not worked on while we have guests.

The grill problem has been fixed, we appreciate your noticing this. The refrigerator was also serviced soon after you left and works fine now. We regret that in our mountain location we sometime cannot schedule appliance contractors for next-day service.

We hope you visit Windcliff again soon!

Thanks so much for your great review! We wish everyone who is interested in renting Sponsel to know that the home is on three levels and is equipped with an elevator that completely eliminates stairs, unless you want the exercise!
