Cheap longer term accomodation

Hi, your forum is very helpful, thx.

We are a family of 4 coming for 4 weeks over Jan, can anyone reccomend our best option for accomodation? We are not looking for top end just something comfortable and afforadble. Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are coming from Australia and not really sure if we should be looking at condos or houses?

Have you tried checking www.vrbo.com?

This is a site (vacation rental by owner) where you rent directly from the owner with no middle man involved. Often you find better rates here. If you choose something on this option, be sure to ask questions such as "who do we contact if there if a problem?" since there will not be a rental agency to contact. Also make sure that you see pictures of the specific property available. Decor, upkeep, etc will vary depending on the property owner. Many people have good luck using this option.

There are some pre-season lift pass sales going on for the next month. You might find a deal that works for your family.

That is true in some areas. In my home area of SC, it is primarily owners. I know people both in SC and in Telluride who rent directly - no managers.

There are symbols on each listing that indicate whether it is managed by the owner or a property company.

Also, do you want to be right in Telluride or Mountain Village? Or would you consider somewhere with a short drive to get to the ski slopes? If so, you might consider checking in Ophir.

If you find a property on vrbo.com you may be able to negotiate a lower price by renting it for an entire month. The owner would be happy to have the entire month rented out, so it is probably an advantage to the owner to take a lower nightly rate than they would for a shorter stay. For example, friends rented this unit for 3 months last winter and they didn't pay the posted nightly rate for the entire stay. vacationrentalagent.com/usa/…top

Tania,

I know that the mangement companies (Alpine, Latitude 38, etc.) will give you a much better deal for a longer tem rental. The advantage to working with a management company (rather than a VRBO) is that they would probably be more responsive to your needs than an individual owner (VRBO) that may not even live in the same state. If something were to go wrong or if you didn't like the accomodations, the management company would be able to take care of it.
