About this listing
A top-notch Durango AirBNB, with excellent location, amenities, and price. Private bedroom and bath, and spacious shared living room and kitchen, in a beautiful remodeled home. Walk to downtown, the train, trails, and the riverwalk in minutes!
I have a great remodeled home in a quiet neighborhood where you can walk to historic downtown Durango in minutes! Guests have a private bedroom on the first floor with a a full sized bed, walk in closet (great for bikes and skis!), and of course fresh linens and towels. Guests enjoy a private bathroom, laundry facilities, full kitchen and spacious living room (shared), a propane grill, and a hot tub which is always clean and hot! The house is bright, spacious, clean, and comfortable, and is a great place to relax after a day of work or play in the Four Corners. I love my home here in Durango, and I would be happy to share my space with you and make your stay as extraordinary as possible.
Guests will have access to everything on the first floor which includes the private bedroom (closest room to the front door) and bathroom, laundry room, full kitchen and living room (shared), hot tub, and propane grill. Parking is available on the opposite side of the street.
Interaction with Guests
I tend to interact with my guests mainly in the evenings or weekends if our schedules overlap. I pride myself in giving my guests as much privacy as they prefer, but I also do everything I can to help them settle in, and answer any questions about the home or the Durango area.
The house is four blocks southeast of Historic Downtown Durango, which means you can walk to the Historic Narrow Gauge Train, the Animas River Walk, and all of the restaurants, shops, galleries, and parks that make this town so fantastic! There are also many hiking and biking trails right down the street.
There is a local public transit stop right outside of our home. A schedule of stop times and locations is available in the room. Private transportation is available from the airport for a reasonable price - just ask and I can provide info about that. Plenty of parking is available, but I ask that guests park on the opposite side of the street, as it is a small driveway and I have neighbors that come and go often.
Other Things to Note
I ask that guests please provide a complete profile when requesting a reservation, ideally with a photo, verifications (phone, email, and/or social media), and a bit of info about yourself. This helps me get to know you, and lets me be confident that you are who you say you are. Please see https://www.airbnb.com/help/article/67 for more info about this.
One final thing to note: I have two very friendly cats. They do NOT go into the guest bedroom and I am happy to discuss options for guests with traveling pet partners.
The Durango vacation rental permit number for this listing is 14-334.
The house will be available for check-in anytime from 6:00 PM on, unless arrangements are made to check in earlier, which I can accomodate in some cases.
The house is only to be used by those who are renting the room, please no parties or bringing people back to the house overnight. However, feel free to have guests visit during the day as long as I am informed beforehand.
Smoking is allowed outside only.
I am more than happy to provide additional sheets, blankets, and towels on request, but laundry will only be done every three nights unless greatly needed.
Guests are asked to provide their own food and drinks, but I am happy to provide coffee and tea. Durango's tap water is excellent, so most guests don't bother with bottled water. :-)
I ask that unless you are staying through the following night that check out is at noon.
Our first Airbnb experience couldn’t have been better, thanks to Jon! He is such a wonderful host and simply a pleasant person to be around. His house is beautiful, clean, organized and very inviting with numerous wall arts and great display of musical instruments and old record collection. We definitely felt at home and very welcome! Our private room with walk-in closet was perfect for our two day visit in Durango. Staying with Jon was a great choice for us. Jon lives right off the river in a quiet neighborhood and just a few blocks from Downtown Durango which we loved. If you want to get away from city driving and hassle visit beautiful and unique town of Durango and stay with Jon. You wouldn’t be disappointed!
Jon, thank you for sharing your home with us and for your hospitality! We would love to visit you again next time we travel your way. Say hi to your lovely cats, Obi and Zana! Cheers! Anna & Nicholas.
Fantastic. Spent four lovely days and three nights in Durango for a friend's wedding at this great place! Everything was even better than expected. Really appreciated Jon's flexibility, generosity, and ease of contact before and during the trip. I only hope the three friends and I who stayed in his house left his beautiful home as nice as we found it.
This was my second time staying with Jon and it was perfect. He's lovely, the space is private and comfortable, and it's perfect walking distance to the main Durango drag. Definitely would recommend, and I totally plan on staying at Jon's again in the future.
Our stay at Jon's place was an excellent experience! His cozy home is in a quiet neighborhood near downtown Durango and the Durango-Silverton train station. The beautiful Animas River is just a short walk away.
Our room and private bathroom were perfect... clean, quiet and comfortable. The jacuzzi privileges were a nice bonus!
Jon is a real gem. We couldn't have had a nicer host and we loved his two cats!
We would highly recommend staying with Jon to anyone visiting Durango!
Everything was great for our two night stay in Duango. Jon was very cordial and helpful. His home was very comfortable and within walking distance to downtown Durango but also far enough out to be quiet at night. We would definitely look to stay again on our next trip to Durango.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Durango and the hospitality extended by Jon. Jon's house is very convenient and a short walk to downtown. There are numerous eating establishments nearby and his house is close to the main arteries going thru Durango (College Ave and highway 550).
Jon was a gracious host. His place was a perfect launching point for hiking around Durango and exploring the city. The main downtown area is easily walkable. Wish I could have stayed longer.

About the Host, Jon
I work for the Southern Ute Tribe in their Wildlife Management Division, and I have lived in Durango for fifteen years. This is a great area for so many activities such as mountain biking, hiking, skiing, river sports, and so much more. I am happy to offer my knowledge of the area to make your visit here as great as possible!
