Craig is very open about the mile long dirt road that's rough at the end but taking it slow was not a problem for us in our crappy Jeep Compass rental even during a rain storm. However, I must admit that we were a bit underwhelmed when we first arrived. This is a manufactured home that was not as clean as we keep our home but all the important areas were clean (floor, counters, bathroom, etc) However, I think we were just being a bit snobby at first since the place grew on us. It is in the middle of the desert after all.
First off, the location is remote but really close to Colossal Cave. We even saw a Gila Monster driving in one day. The property is decorated eclectically with lots of fun stuff to look at and it is STOCKED. Everything you could want is there even the little stuff like mayo, butter and other condiments that you wouldn't think to buy. Craig even left beer for us in the fridge and emailed once to check in with to see if everything was OK. That's above and beyond what I have gotten and any other vacation rental.
The wireless internet worked great too which was a plus when checking local weather updates and email.
So, we left really liking the place and would likely start there again if we happen to be in Vail in the future.
