A perfect place to relax and enjoy, supplied with everything and the very best. Up to 2 dogs are allowed subject to the Pet Policy. Stick no-smoking inside.

Not available for bachelor/ette parties. Guest signing Agreement 25 years+

This single-family retreat sits on top of the hill, isolated on a full acre above Silverthorne with shopping within walking distance. It feels remote and private.

The space

Update: Starting April 2017 we replace 2 queen size beds with king, for a total of 5 king size beds in 4 bedrooms (one has two king in bunk).

This is not a house made or provisioned 'for rent' with the most essential items, kitchenware, furniture, linen, etc. You will see that in every detail. We like top quality on everything, and you will surely notice and enjoy it.

This is your chance to enjoy a place built, decorated and supplied with everything and more. Obsessive Housekeeper keeps it pristine!

Sorry but Villa Panda is not available for bachelor/bachelorette, football or similar parties.

Less than a mile away is the Silverthorne Recreational Center ((URL HIDDEN) with 4 pools and every activity, equipment, recreation, available rooms to rent for all occasions.

This single-family retreat sits on top of the hill, isolated on a full acre above Silverthorne with shopping within walking distance. It feels remote and secluded on its own hilltop, with unobstructed views of the mountain range.

Subject to the Pet Policy in House Rules, you can bring up to two of your best friend dogs.

The outdoor gas fire pit overlooks Breckenridge and the main patio showcases panoramic views of the Gore Range.

Inside, you'll find a full gourmet kitchen with everything you can think of, radiant floor heating, a formal dining room, secondary living room for the kids and massive windows looking south and west.

Despite being on top of the world, this home is only one mile to the core of Silverthorne's shopping, outlets and dining district, and within 10 minutes to world-class hiking, skiing, fishing, snowmobiling and more. Nearby resorts include A Basin, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Loveland, and Vail. If you use a car, 10 minutes more driving gets you triple the house, privacy, space and views, and you can choose a different mountain every day!

World class fly fishing within a 10-minute walk on the Blue River.

Explore natural trails (hike the famous Fourteeners among them), minutes from your door. A Charts Room with every ski run and hiking trail framed to plan your days.

It's the best of both worlds.

Just 60 minutes from downtown Denver, this is Colorado mountain living at its finest.

No need to bring your laptop: for your convenience we just added an HP PC to check your email, browse the net, reprint and print your boarding passes, etc. Cellular reception on ATT is excellent (we don't have information on other carriers).

No need to buy, bring and lug water bottles either. A full-house carbon and particles water filter delivers clean, drinkable water on every faucet throughout the house.

7 HD large screen TV monitors with Xfinity X1 offering thousands of movies and TV series free. PPV (pay per view) also content available at cost. Sonos and sound bars to enjoy music and movies.

A library is constantly growing with new titles, a DVD collection of over 100 movies, board games for all tastes and age groups.

Outdoor jacuzzi for 7 with privacy and mountain views!

A top of the line new Weber outside grill (and teak picnic table and chairs) allows for additional cooking and entertainment options.

Built-in USB adaptors, hair dryers in every bathroom, room humidifiers, ceiling fans, backpacks with water bottles ready, sleds, ski/board repair bench with tools and supplies, lawn and indoor games, you name it: it is there for your enjoyment!

3 of the beds are king size, 2 are queen, 4 twins (2 of which can be made to king) and one Pack and Play for a baby. 3 Inflatable mattresses are also provided, but please keep in mind the maximum occupancy of 14 (plus 3 inflatable mattresses).

We hired the best cleaning crew to ensure the house is pristine for each new guest. We spend many weeks a year here, and we are obsessive with a clean, fresh smelling, impeccable home.

Oh, Starbucks just opened down the road, a 10-minute walk! (With your Jura espresso machine, you may not need it).

Read the reviews: past guests describe the Villa Panda experience better than we could!


For winter guests: please note that you will need vehicle/s with 4WD or AWD and snow tires as we get A LOT of snow. Our house is by itself on top of a hill and the driveway can be covered in snow between visits of the plow we hire each winter.

For families with babies or toddlers, we have wonderful neighbors with 2 children that are babysitting certified and super nice: Ellie us 15 and Brendan is 13. If you want to make arrangements for them to help you, please let us know.


Full set of bed and bathroom linen with extra sets. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Full set of table settings, cookware and silverware. New children's playground on premises

Guest access

Guests have access to every room in the house, minus two owner's closets.
Parking
There is a covered two-car garage and space for 4 more cars right outside. One of the parking spaces in the garage is sometimes occupied by the owner's vehicle. No more than six cars in total please.

Directly in front and on top of the driveway there is a space dedicated for the plower to dump the snow of the driveway in winter. Please don't park there as it may damage your car, cover it with snow and/or make it impossible to drive out. The truck driver has no option but to push the snow into that especially designated spot. Spring, Summer and Fall allows for 3 more cars parked outside.

For winter guests: please note that you will need vehicle/s with 4WD or AWD and snow tires as we get A LOT of snow. Our house is by itself on top of a hill and the driveway can be covered in snow between visits of the plow.
Subject to availability we allow early checkin and late checkout.

New childrens' playground going up October 2017

Interaction with guests

Other things to note

Xfinity X1 in all rooms - Netflix - Jacuzzi for 7 - New Gas Pit - New BBQ Grill - New patio teak furniture - House is impeccable with extraordinary views of the mountains and valley. Even 3 backpacks with 2 bottles for water each are provided so you don't need to bring your own while going on hikes. Computer and printer provided free for your convenience as well. Emergency kits (including first aid) to cover most issues, so you can travel lighter and worry free.

Please note that we will call you to answer any additional questions you may have and to determine if our second home is the ideal choice for you and your guests. We rent this home to people 25 and over as this is a very well appointed mansion which we need to keep pristine for our next guests (and for us). Anyone planning to rent Villa Panda to host a large or wild party with lots of drinking/smoking, etc. should consider other options available to them.

There is high-speed Wi-Fi access throughout the home at 2.4 and 5 Ghz. The network names all include “Villa Panda”. There is a printer hooked up to the wireless: HP Officejet Pro 8620. It is located in the second living room (second floor, back of house). If the Wi-Fi is erratic or you don’t get good speed, please power-cycle the black modem behind the living-room TV: simply unplug the power, wait 30 seconds and plug it again. The service is provided by Comcast (xFinity) and has the highest bandwidth available, often testing at 150 Mbs per second. There are network expanders throughout the house to insure the strongest signal everywhere.

Drinking tap water
Villa Panda has a full-house water filtration system making it safe to drink the tap water from every faucet. Water is provided by Summit County and is already safe before it reaches our filter. 2 fridges to accommodate your cold foodstuff.

Jacuzzi
It is located on the west side patio. To open it, lift the top on the west side (away from the house), half way, then use the leverage of the top lifter (metal pipe running across the top) to continue the opening movement till the full top rests against the house wall. To close it (please do that each time after use) simply use the same level for leverage and bring the lift away from the house: that will move the top back down again.

The Jacuzzi accommodates seven people comfortably on spaces especially designed as seats. Normal working temperature should be around 104F. To change the temperature, simple depress the button marked with a thermometer design on the edge of the Jacuzzi. Each time you press it will go up and when the max of 104 is reached, it will go down to 95F, and then up again. Set it for what is comfortable and safe for you and your guests.

Other buttons are for the jets, waterfall and light. Depressing the light button will give you color and pattern options. Please don’t forget to reduce the temperature to 95F and close the top when not in use. Please exercise caution, don’t stay too long as your blood pressure may lower. Never bring glass or food to the Jacuzzi. Other rules are posted for your convenience next to it.

Should the water level drop below the jets, you may add water using the water hose located by the front door. In the winter months, kindly disconnect the hose from the faucet and bring it into the garage so it will not freeze.

The Jacuzzi is ‘shocked’ between guests with a highly concentrated solution of chlorine. Additionally a net to skim the surface and a hand-vacuum to remove any debris from the bottom are placed next to the Jacuzzi.

Fireplace
We have one gas fireplace inside the home. The switch to turn it on/off is just to the left of the fireplace. Please turn off when not in use.
Gas fire pit
Located just outside the front door. To turn the fire on, you will need the lighter located in the same drawer as the keys. The gas valve is on the main patio, just to the right (looking into the house) of the sliding doors. A sign on the wall points the exact location, behind the BBQ grill. Turn the knob 90 degrees to open gas line. Then you will need to light the fire from a prudent distance, remember that gas is flowing. PLEASE be careful and shut gas off when finished. There are four low-profile camping chairs located in the garage for your comfort around the fire pit

Security cameras
There are 4, located on the periphery and inside the garage, not inside the house. There is a camera on the patio where the Jacuzzi is located. For privacy, there is a hanger under the camera that holds a cloth. You can use that cloth (or any other) to cover the camera when you desire privacy. Please uncover it when not needed.
Conveniences
On each bathroom there is a hair dryer, soap, shampoo and hand cream. On the first drawer on the kitchen there are extra batteries, sowing kit, glass repair kit, extra keys, flashlight, etc. The next drawer over has cables to connect and charge USB devices. Adaptors for USB are throughout the house. Anything we thought you could possibly need, we added to the house.

A dozen+ great board games for all ages to choose from. Inside darts board. Outdoors been bag toss regulation size. Bocce set 4 players. Horseshoe set. Ring toss game. Snow sleds. Adding more.

Garage
Please close the garage doors when not in use. That will prevent the freezing of the water lines. Park in the garage and up to 4 cars right in front of it. DO NOT park (in winter) directly uptop the driveway as that area is specifically reserved for the plower truck to dump the snow from the driveway.

Because we put so much attention to every detail, high quality and selection of every item, Villa Panda is not available for bachelor/bachelorette, football or similar parties.


For winter guests: please note that you will need vehicle/s with 4WD or AWD and snow tires as we get A LOT of snow. Our house is by itself on top of a hill and the driveway can be covered in snow between visits of the plow we hire each winter.

Great location, home and ammenities. Hosts were helpful and quick to respond any time we had questions. We couldn't have been happier!

We had a group of 12 and two babies get together for a reunion weekend. Villa Panda was absolutely perfect for group! Not only are the views breathtaking, but the property itself is stunning. Pablo and Mary keep the house very well equipped and maintained, to ensure a comfortable experience for their guests. We loved how well everything in the home was labeled, the layout was perfect, and we had an overwhelmingly positive experience. We'd certainly recommend for family and friend gatherings!

This is an amazing place for any family. Easy 20 minute drive to 3 or 4 different skiing resorts and easy to get to shops just 8/10 mins away. We had an amazing time!

We had a wonderful stay at Pablo's home. The house is fully stocked with everything from sleds to an espresso machine. The location is perfect. You are half a mile from a Starbucks, Target, and outlet malls and only 20 minutes to various ski resorts. The location of the home on the hill makes for a private feel without being too far removed from all the fun. We hope to stay again during our next trip to the area.

Pablo's house on the hill is stunning! We had a group of longtime friends meet up from all over the country and stay at his place, and it was perfect for what we were looking for! It was in the middle of all the ski resorts, which we took advantage of every single day. It comfortably slept all 14 of us plus a baby. The hot tub, fireplace, and cozy seating kept us warm during the winter nights. The huge, beautiful dinner table allowed us all to enjoy dinners together every night. This house has everything! Pablo pays attention to the small details and did not miss a thing when it comes to making your trip comfortable. For example, every single bedroom has humidifiers and the kitchen is stocked with every little thing you could possibly need! Furthermore, Pablo was extremely communicative and prompt with his replies. He was flexible with us checking in a little early so we could drop our things off and get to skiing as soon as possible. I look forward to coming back here!

Our family had an awesome time during our stay at Villa Panda. The house is gorgeous and it's conveniently located close to shopping, skiing and entertainment; it sits by itself on a hilltop which provides a lot of privacy and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The owners have done an excellent job at providing mostly everything their guest will need during their stay, and in our case, they did a superb job at communicating prior to our arrival and answering our questions during our stay.

We bought this house in 2015, was love at first sight! The house inside is fantastic but the views... are breathtaking! We could not resist! We bought it primarily for us to enjoy, but we live in Florida so we rent it out for the times it would be empty (it helps to pay the mortgage! ;) ) We got it ready for us with everything we love, we spared no expense or effort. The house is ready to be enjoyed in full without worries or concerns. From the fireplace in the living room to the fire pit outside, the (all new) barbecue grill, jacuzzi, HD tvs in every room, Xfinity X1 everywhere, the top offering in WiFi, a PC and printer to print your boarding passes, even 3 backpacks with 2 water bottles each ready to go hiking, radiant heating throughout, new boiler, all the dishes, silverware, glasses, mugs, etc. a full library of books and DVDs, boardgames, binoculars, spotting scope, etc. all is there ready and waiting for you, including a welcome package with nice surprises I am sure you will enjoy. Your stay at Villa Panda will be an experience and memories that will last you a lifetime. Strict non-smoking inside the house. Subject to Pet Policy in House Rules, up to 2 dogs are permitted.
