We (myself and 2 teen boys) stayed at the Villas at Walton Creek (unit 1421) during the last week in February. We found Mountain Resorts to be very easy to work with. When I was looking at booking on line, nothing was available, but I was able to book via phone. I paid $1250 for 7 nights in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath unit. Check in and check out was a breeze at the Mountain Resorts building about 5 minutes away from our condo. Steamboat is very easy to find your way around.
Although it says that the condo is within 600 yards of the gondola, it must be measured by how a bird flies, definitely too far to walk while carrying gear or in ski/snowboard boots. The shuttle stop on the other hand was a quick walk out to Walton Creek Road, we never had to wait for more than a few minutes. The Villas are one of the last stops before arriving at the gondola on both the green and orange lines, but they are one of the last stops returing home after a day on the slopes. It was still convenient.
Our unit was clean and in good repair. Our pilot light went out one day in the fireplace and maintenance came right over to fix it. We weren't entirely sure what and how fequently we were supposed to have housekeeping. They came all but one day to change out our towels, empty trash, etc. Mid week they changed our bed linens. The condo came with a heated garage, but we rented a Jeep Liberty in Denver and the garage was too small for the SUV. It probably would have fit, but would have been a really tight squeeze getting in and out and we stored our ski/snowboard equipment in the garage. There was ample parking outside the garage.
I thought the condo was a very good value for the money we spent. There was a lot of room for 2 teen boys to spread out.
I would definitely recommend these condo's. We had a fabulous week!
