East Vail condominiums

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
US seems to have all the decent snow at the moment. Just when I thought we had turned the corner in Europe, it is getting milder.

Therefore, I am thinking of spending a fortnight in Colorado instead.

I have never been there.

Does anyone have any experience of East Vail condominiums ?

They are described as such :-

'Top quality condos in quiet East Vail locations · Excellent value · Close to free Vail shuttle stop · Free outdoor parking · Laundry facilities in each condo block · All condos have full kitchen, '

The package is reasonably priced.

Anyone who has stayed in East Vail care to let us know what the place is like ? I have an idea about the skiing in Vail but I don't know anything about East Vail.

The East and West of Vail...

The "East Vail Condo's" is just a management company for various condos all over the East Vail area. East Vail is the part of town which lies east of Vail mtn by about 3-5 miles. There is decent bus service form that area, to the mtn (about 10-15 minutes)

Depending upon the actual condo you book, some are rather new and set up in a contemporary fashion. But several of the larger condo complexs are quite old, and might not have been upgraded within the last many years.

There is only 1 restaurant in East Vail (at the Racquet Club) and 1 small grocery store ($$$). Other than that, everything is in Vail Village, or West Vail.

Other options might include accom in AVON, at the base of Beaver Creek. Try Beaver Creek West Condo's (recently remodeled), I just heard from a friend they have pretty good deals. Close to restaurants, etc, and about equidistant in time from both Vail and Beaver Creek.

Any other questions, just add to this thread, or PM me!

There is nothing really in East Vail then. I am not too worried about the accommodation itself. I am sure it will be as good as the French equivalent (and probably larger).

Looks like eating and entertainment would all be in the centre of Vail but the bus runs till quite late (and hopefully to a timetable?).

The deal I mentioned was flight, transfers and accomodation. I could be book a flight but then I would need to rent a car and find accommodation myself - a package is easier.

The buses run late and frequently, and they are GPS equipped, so that each bus stop has a little LED readout that tells you exactly when the next one will be arriving. Very cool!
