FAQ for Condominiums Vacation Rentals

What Are Vacation Rentals?

Destination Residences Snowmass Vacation Rentals are luxurious condominiums, villas, and private homes that are available for rent - much like you would book a hotel room.
But unlike a typical hotel room, a vacation rental is much more - it's a home. A home that's perfect for vacations, family reunions, corporate retreats, wedding parties and many other occasions.

The Space You Need
Instead of a room, a vacation home or condo rental gives you a spacious home environment where entire families and groups can gather and be together under one roof. With its fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer and barbecues your vacation home or condo rental is perfect when you're planning to stay more than one or two days.

The Privacy You Want
One of the biggest benefits of renting a Destination Residences Snowmass condo rental is the freedom it gives you to relax in comfort, quiet and privacy.

The Amenities of a Fine Hotel
Destination Residences Snowmass Vacation Rentals combine luxury, space, comfort and privacy with gracious hotel services. These include full-service front desk, secured after hours check-in, concierge assistance and business services - as well as on-site recreation such as swimming pools and hot tubs. Amenities within the Destination Residences Snowmass collection include access to 4 ski mountains, cross country skiing, championship golf, world class tennis, hiking, biking, events and activities, as well as shopping and exceptional dining options.

The Best Location
Destination Residences Snowmass offers vacation rentals in prime locations such as: ski-in/ski-out, slopeside or directly on the golf course.

Do we need to bring our own towels and linens?
No. Destination Residences Snowmass provides luxury linens, towels and bath amenities in every vacation condo. Each property features fully furnished units, including fully equipped kitchens.

Who is responsible for cleaning the condo rental at departure?
We are. We would never ask you to spoil your Snowmass vacation by spending your last day cleaning! In addition, by providing professional housekeeping services, we ensure that all of our guests experience the same high standards of meticulously maintained vacation condo rentals.

Is renting from Destination Residences Snowmass the same as renting direct from a homeowner?
When you call an individual homeowner, they may only offer one home or condo to you. The owner has a vested interest in renting his home or condo but he very likely will not be readily available if you have any issues. A Destination Residences Snowmass reservations specialist is a professional trained to listen to your needs, to fit you into a vacation rental that suits your unique requirements. Each property we manage has an operational team and maintenance to deal with unexpected issues. Most vacationers have confidence renting from Destination Residences Snowmass because of the reputation they have established for quality and service excellence.

Are vacation rentals the same as a time-share?
No they are not. Vacation rentals are privately owned, fully furnished homes or condos. When renting a Snowmass condo or vacation home from a Destination Residences Snowmass, you are provided many options and a much greater variety of accommodation types and sizes. Timeshares are fully furnished accommodations that have been sold up to 50 times, each purchaser buying a certain amount of time. Timeshare rentals are also more restrictive with dates, for example, stays may be allowed only from Saturday to Saturday. Destination Residences Snowmass does not sell, manage or represent any timeshare or fractional vacation rentals.
