Our Galaxy Drive Guest Suite is perfect for one or two guests looking to enjoy the amenities of staying intown Durango.

OVERVIEW
The guest suite has immaculate views overlooking Durango and the mountains. It also has its own private entrance, one bedroom, a living area, a kitchenette and a private bath. The guest suite features 9 ft ceilings, acid stained floors, granite counter tops, stainless appliances, limestone tile in the bath, alder trim, a private outside patio with seating, etc. The guest suite, part of the main residence, is completely private - there are no shared spaces.

The 3 story home, including the guest suite, has central air conditioning (a must have May - Sept), heating, and a whole home humidifier. The home is owner occupied, and accessed via a private road on an exclusive hill in Durango.

BED and BATH
The guest suite bedroom consists of a queen size bed, a nightstand with a lamp and docking station, a chest of drawers, and a full closet.

The bathroom has a full sized soaking tub/shower. Quality linens and toiletries are provided.

LIVING AREA
The living area has a pull out couch (makes a full size bed), chair, coffee table, 55" smart tv (we provide a Roku with Netflix), and more.

KITCHENETTE
The kitchenette is designed for light cooking (ie - toasting a bagel, reheating a slice of pizza, making a sandwich, salad, or soup, etc.), and features a fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, electric skillet, crockpot, electric tea kettle, blender, dishes, and silverware. Durango Joe's coffee and tea are provided.

Note: Guests will often use the kitchenette for breakfast/lunch/snacks, and then go out for dinner, call for delivery, or do take-out. We very much encourage guests to support Durango's local restaurants.

We have completed AirBnB's Enhanced Clean program, and adhere to a rigorous cleaning protocol. Further, we want potential guests to understand that our guest suite is not like a hotel where you have a lot of people and many common areas. Our guest suite has no common areas. You are completely separate from us and others.

Private parking for one vehicle is provided on site. A second vehicle can be accommodated with on-street parking.

PROXIMITY TO DOWNTOWN DURANGO
We are 2 miles away from downtown Durango and all of its amenities - an abundance of restaurants, galleries, retail, etc. You can walk or ride your bike via the Florida Road walking/biking path. Alternatively, you can catch the Durango Transit, or you're less than a 5 minute drive to downtown.

ACTIVITIES
Of course, Durango is known for the Durango-Silverton Train, our proximity to Mesa Verde and the Grand Circle, endless single track trails, world class whitewater, rock climbing, fishing, Lake Nighthorse, winter skiing at Purgatory Resort, cross country skiing, ice skating, etc.

AIRBNB INSTANT BOOKING

EXTENDED STAYS
At present, we are only booking shorter term stays of 2-4 nights.

HEATING / COOLING
The whole home, including the guest suite, has central heating and air conditioning controlled by a Nest thermostat. The Nest is connected to a remote sensor in the guest suite. Guests can not control the thermostat directly, but the home, including the guest suite, is set to a comfortable temperature at all times. The guest suite is set to 71F when the AC is on and 69F when the heater is on. At the same time, we recognize that all people have different temperature preferences. Guests are provided a fan and space heater to use as needed.

We genuinely enjoy sharing Durango with our guests, and we want guests to have a great experience in Durango.

Other things to note
AirBnB Verification
We encourage all guests to get verified by AirBnB. We also ask that you have your face visible in your AirBnB profile picture. On our end, we have been verified by AirBnB. The process is super simple. Within the app you simply take a picture of your government issued id (driver's license, passport, etc). Verification literally takes a second and it helps make the AirBnB community a safer experience.

Driving in the Snow/Ice
If you are coming to Durango from a state where it does not snow, please know that it does snow in Colorado. Check the weather forecast, and be prepared to drive in the snow/ice should the need arise.
