Welcome to Casa de Cristal! Perched on a dramatically-situated lot on the face of Ram’s Horn Mountain in prestigious Windcliff Estates, everything about this luxury vacation rental home proclaims that it's “one in a million.”

The Casa de Cristal Experience

Upon entering Casa de Cristal's grand entryway, you and your guests are greeted with wide-open spaces to drop your bags and kick off your shoes. The entryway offers benches and hooks to stow your adventuring gear. But once your load is lightened, your heart will be left to soar as you enter the living room -- and let us tell you – this is LIVING. Here is where this home garners its name: Over one thousand square feet of glass windows fill your eyes and your soul with panoramic views of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Continental Divide. Truly your window into modern, luxury, mountain living and an architectural marvel to boot -- Casa de Cristal is a stunning Estes Park vacation home. In fact, it’s a quintessential example of how clean, modern architecture can marry with the beauty of nature in all the best ways possible. 

The Living Room and Entertainment at Casa de Cristal

As we’ve already mentioned – and can’t mention enough – a hallmark of this sublime vacation rental are the views surrounding you in the living room. You’ll be surrounded by the all-encompassing beauty of neighboring RMNP through over 1,000 square feet of glass. Marvel at the soaring 32’ high wood beam, planked ceilings, and elaborate masterpiece antler chandelier. All this, accented by a three-story wall of marble cradling a massive wood-burning fireplace. In the colder months, count on Casa de Cristal’s hearth to add light, warmth and ambiance to the room that is beyond compare. Sat in the gorgeous, curved sofas, you and your guests will converse without end: the fireplace to one side, and the mountain views to the other.  

Recently Updated: Main Level Air Conditioning

And, in the warmer months, enjoy the comfort of air conditioning as you enjoy the conversation or take your turn at another puzzle on one of two glass-topped, wood piece coffee tables.

The Kitchen and Deck at Casa de Cristal

Once your eyes recover from the wonder and awe of Casa de Cristal's massive living room, they'll once again be drawn astray -- this time to the kitchen -- a chef’s grandest dream come true! Step down just three steps and start creating your mountain feast - or snacks for your next great hike - where two massive islands make prep work a breeze. Professional appliances – all stainless-steel - rise to meet every demand of the discerning cook. The 48" electric range offers double ovens. The built-in sub-zero refrigerator is flanked with plenty of custom cabinetry for pantry storage plus every accoutrement you can imagine for preparing meals, from the simple to the grandiose. Two sinks and two dishwashers make short work of both prep and cleanup. 

Just to the left of the range are double doors practically taunting you and your guests to set the table ‘al fresco’ on the expansive deck – a setting like no other, surrounded by panoramic views and the rarified mountain air. Plus, the deck offers an LP grill to give your Estes Park vacation cookout the proper flavor profile.

If the weather isn't cooperating, bring the meal inside where you'll find counter seating for eight and a massive big-screen TV to keep an eye on the game. If a more formal setting is desired, Casa de Cristal offers dining room seating for ten.  The live-edge dining table is accompanied by ten upholstered chairs. And don’t forget that you’ll be able to enjoy the majestic mountain views from Casa de Cristal as you dine!

Accessible Living

Just behind the kitchen, you'll find an office and a queen bedroom flanking a full bathroom.  The office offers a twin pull-out sleeper, which serves as an additional sixth bedroom. Linens for the sofa sleeper can be found in the utility closet between the entryway and the kitchen. The elevator is also accessed in this same area.  The garage is accessed two steps up from that same area. 

In short, Casa de Cristal offers easy access to the garage, kitchen, living room, utility room, a second bathroom, two bedrooms, and the elevator – all with no more than 3 steps needed!

Taking it Down(stairs)

As dinner concludes, raise the challenge: a billiards tournament for the championship of the universe! Guests can traverse the stairs or take the elevator to the lower level where those waiting for their shot at the next game can relax at bistro-style high-tops or settle into deep, warm leather seating. All this is flanked by a big screen TV and fireplace in exquisite view. Down the short hall from the lower family room are two bedrooms: a four-twin-bunk room with full private ensuite bathroom and a queen bedroom with full private ensuite bathroom.

The Hot Tub and Sauna

Winners and losers of the billiards tournament alike can then move to the outdoor hot tub to enjoy the star-filled Estes Park night sky, frequently accompanied by the Milky Way. If your day’s activities require more thorough recovery, a cedar lined sauna awaits to soothe your muscles after a day of mountain exploration... or just to sip some wine and relax on your vacation. 

Retiring Upstairs

When it's time to retire after your evening, whether spent out in nature or in the Estes Park nightlife, Casa de Cristal's opulent, curving, marble-lined staircase (or the elevator) delivers you to your choice of bedrooms: the ensuite king bed master bedroom to the north or the expansive queen bed guest room to the south with gorgeously tiled full bathroom in the hallway. The master bedroom also offers a upholstered luxury sectional and LP fireplace. The master bathroom is privately accessed ensuite and offers a luxury soaking tub with mountain views, an oversized tiled shower, private water closet and dual sinks separated seemingly by "miles" of granite countertop!  The queen guest room also features a double sleeper sofa.
