  • Condo Household Items We provide sheets, towels, basic cookware and dinnerware, as well as simple necessity products such as toilet paper, paper towel, trash bags, dish soap, shampoo and body wash.  Unless you require something specific, you should only need to bring your own food and beverage items!  We also recommend sunscreen.  You will want to stop at the grocery store on your way up the mountain, as the nearest store is about 9 miles.

  • “Mountain” WIFI  Every condo at Tamarron has free public WIFI.  However, we are in the mountains, so sometimes our service here can be sketchy in poor weather conditions.

  • Common Areas  The Main Lodge has a common area in the center tower on every floor.  There is comfortable seating, table/chairs with views to the red cliffs- a great gathering place to play a board game with your family.  Also, each floor has a Guest Services center with coin operated laundry, ice and soda machine, and a trash chute.  The second floor Guest Services center also has a vending machine for convenient snacks.  High Point, Pinecone, and Gamble Oak areas each have their own guest service buildings with coin operated laundry, ice and soda machine, and trash bin.  Please keep the trash bins closed to keep wildlife away.

Trip of a Lifetime! First, before talking about the property, let me applaud Premier Vacation Rentals for the wonderful customer service they provided in finding a location, scheduling, following up and going above and beyond. Thank you, PVR, you provided truly exceptional service for which we are grateful. We hosted friends from out of state who had never been to this part of the country; we live an hour or so away. Now that it has been several days since our vacation ended, they are still raving about their vacation to everyone they know. They call it a “trip of a lifetime” and rather than planning on a single stay, they now say they will return at least annually and are ready for another week. Durango is a great place, but this townhome is truly extraordinary. The views, the amenities, the lighting, the location and the dreamy beds make for a luxurious visit. If you get the opportunity to come to Durango and stay in this home, you will not regret it. Thank you again and we’ll see you again soon!
