The property was very nice and clean and as described in the listing. We had a great time and will stay there again. The owner was very accommodating and even sent a new coffee pot when the old one broke.

My husband, sister and I enjoyed staying at this gorgeous townhouse, 23 miles north of the town of Durango, just south of Purgatory Ski Resort. It was easy dealing with the owners, making credit card payments to reserve the townhouse. The instructions and key code to enter the place were clear and concise.
The home was tastefully furnished, clean and comfortable. The kitchen the latest appliances as well as a toaster, coffee maker, blender, and all the utensils you would need to make a quality home-made meal. Staples such as spices, teas, hot chocolate and other foods were in the cupboards and refrigerator already, but we shopped for our food beforehand and didn't have to use much of the stocked items. Nice dishes and silverware. Flat screen TVs in all the bedrooms and living room. Fluffy towels, good quality sheets were a plus. Beds were very comfy. Wood was provided for the living room fireplace which we utilized for the chilly May evenings.
This was the first time we were in this part of Colorado. We rode the Durango-Silverton Railroad, hiked Purgatory Flats, drove to Ouray to enjoy the hot springs, and dined and shopped in Durango. We loved the area and the people were really friendly. We would definitely come back to do it again.
While staying at this townhouse, we felt like we were in a 5-star hotel in a great part of Colorado.
We would definitely rent this townhouse again next time we are in Durango. Thank you Sunshine for an enjoyable vacation!

Our family just loved our stay in Durango. The Condo was well appointed, clean and had all the amenities of home, plus more! We found the Sow's Ear to be the best *** Star Restaurant in all of Durango. The location within the mountains couldn't have been more beautiful this time of year. We were blessed with blankets of Snow covered mountains. A true Winter Wonderland. I would recommend Sunshine and Cody's condo, but I'm afraid I am too selfish and would hate to miss out on it not being available for our next visit. A true diamond resort that Families and Couples alike would enjoy. Durango has always held a special place in our hearts over the years. We have been away for too long and it was a mentioned many times during our stay that we must continue the tradition with our children's children. The Polar Express experience, the sleigh rides, and of course skiing was just as exciting this time as it had been in the past 30 yrs. Durango never loses it's charm. Sunshine and Cody have built a beautiful place for all to enjoy. I'm jealous of their home away from home.
Thank you for allowing our family to share your home. I hope you invited us back !!!
Fyi...if you have a little one, Sunshine and Cody have thought of everything. Porta Crib, Booster Seat, and our little one loved stacking the plastic children's dishes. He was very busy reorganizing those dishes. We didn't have to haul toys from Texas!!! All these amenities make it so easy for traveling. The less you have to pack the better.
“Charming, warm & welcoming... Everything we were looking for!”

This vacation home delivered everything we expected and more! It was beautifully decorated, but not too formal... very comfortable and cozy. When we arrived, it was super clean (which we're picky about!), and we felt very much at home. The kitchen had just been remodeled and was absolutely gorgeous! We love to cook on vacation and found everything we needed at our fingertips. In the bedrooms and bathrooms, the owners have gone the extra mile to provide high-quality beds, linens, towels, etc - as good as any 5-star hotel! The location was awesome... We had amazing views of the mountains, and the property was very well kept. Also, it was just a short 30-minute drive to downtown Durango, where we found many great restaurants and shops. Lastly, the owner, Sunny, was excellent from start to finish. She provided prompt, detailed information when we were booking and was very friendly and personable all throughout the process. It is very apparent that she takes great pride in providing top-notch service to her guests. My husband and I will definitely stay at Silverpick, again! Thanks for everything, Sunny :)
