Same Song, Second Verse
After I located this listing, so I could write this review, I noticed the existing review from December 2016. Would it be plagiarism if I simply re-wrote it word-for-word to describe my February 2016 stay?! I completely agreed with the writers comments about location and view; both are great. Agree that the place is very dated (more on that later), but my main complaint is also the bed and bedding. Since we skied ALL day and ate out at night, most of our "condo time" was for sleeping, which was hard to do, given the ANCIENT and TERRIBLE mattress and bedding, including cheap sheets, horribly old pillows, piled-up blankets, etc. IT'S ALL AWEFUL, just as prior reviewer noted.
The only call out I have with respect to the prior review it that I don't know how his wife managed to sleep at all on the sleeper sofa, as that "mattress" was, even to my 11 year old, AWFUL as well! It, too, had to at LEAST 20 years old. I don't think there is such a thing as a "good" sleeper, but this was the worst of the worst that I've encountered.
I also agreed with limited kitchen-ware, as well as noise and cooking smells that drifted into the unit from the connecting condo. Come on, for $10 the owner or manager could buy two decent wine glasses, the contents of which could dull one's senses as to the fact that you're stuck in this particular unit.
I realize it seems like over kill, but other negatives to the unit: Cleanliness was sketchy at best. The plastic shower liner was GROSS at the bottom (rust colored, yucky something... again those plastic liners are a whooping $10). While the "shower room" and "toilet closet" were tiled, the "sink area" was carpeted and again had a high "yuck" factor. The dish washer was loosely set in the cabinet, but not really secured or aligned with the cabinets, which were very old and in need of repair. Cheap and very dated furniture.
The decor, while not affecting functionality of the unit, is a ghastly mish-mash of styles (think wall art of still-life vase of roses; a rustic, western motif lamp, mauve colored kitchen accent tiles (unlike many of you, I'm old enough to remember when mauve existed and was popular . . . Trust me, it was a LONG time ago and a bad idea then).
Bottom Line, it appears that every thing in the unit is original to the condo, and Village at Breck is at least 20+ years old. Renter Beware!!! There are much better studios to be rented in the Village at Breck.
I would only stay here again if it were the only place left in Breckenridge.
The location is great and the view from the unit is nice. The overall condition of the place is dated but ok.
The issue that my wife and I had was mainly with the bed, IT'S AWEFUL!!! I don't know how to stress this enough. We stayed in the unit for five nights and after the second night my wife started sleeping on the couch. The mattress is so worn out that the bed sinks about 8 inches from the center to the edges when you lay in it. Also, for some weird reason, the bed is on an angle so your feet are always about 4 inches higher than your head. The pillows provided no support and the sheets were very cheap. I woke up every hour through the night and never got a good night's sleep. The bed is just a full size so the cost to replace this would be minimal so I'm confused as to why it wasn't replaced years ago!!!! If I had to estimate the age of the matress based on its condition, I would say it's over 20 years old just like everything else in the unit.
Also, there was only one drinking glass and only a four sets of mismatching utensils to eat with.
The unit also has a connecting door to the unit next door that gave us the pleasure of hearing everything conversation that the neighbors had as well as being able to smell everything that they were cooking.
I would not recommend this place to anyone!
