We visited Sandstone Creek Club via the AFVC, where we got a great deal. Overall, our stay was very nice. It was the first time we had vacationed at a condo.
Since they clean once, mid-week, it was nice not having to be out of the room early each morning. (The condo was super clean to start with, with lots of soap and towels in both bathrooms.) And making breakfast at the condo also let us forget about the alarm clock. With a full kitchen, this was a big money-saver too. We just picked up some breakfast groceries at the local Safeway on our first day and ate breakfast in.
Our balcony overlooked a very peaceful, flowing creek that was really nice background noise with the windows open. There are a few small trails nearby for hiking, but this area is mostly for skiing. (For better trails, you will have to drive at least 30 minutes in either direction, I recommend Glenwood Springs where you can do the Hanging Lake Trail and they go to the Hot Springs pool.)
The pool is cool, with half indoors and half outdoors. You can swim under the partition to access either side. There are two indoor hot tubs by the pool, as well as a dry sauna and a steamroom.
The exercise room is quite small and only has a few machines, but we did use it a few days of the week, when it was too nippy outside to do any real exercise in the morning.
One thing that I wish I would have known before we went is that the condo had a washer and dryer. We were there for 7 days, so we ended up checking luggage. If I had known about the washer/dryer, I could have gotten by with just a carry-on. They even supply detergent for the guests.
Since the end of April is technically the off-season for Vail and the surrounding ski areas, the restaurants and shopping in the Vail villages were largely unavailable at night. This was really the only disappointment. But there are some nice restaurants in Avon, Edwards, and Eagle, which aren't far and have more choices in the off-season. Just ask Jodi for advice - she will hook you up with good deals. (She told us about some unadvertised specials certain restaurants were having - my husband and I dined at a brand new nearby Westin for under $40!).
There were two ski lifts still open in the area (Loveland and the Arapahoe Basin were open the last week of April.)
I would recommend staying here, it's clean, cozy, and quiet. This would be a good place to stay with other friends/couples in the off-season.
