Bill and Kathy Handley knew early in their marriage that they both shared a love for Colorado. Although they have made Florida their year-round home, they always looked forward to visiting Colorado several times each year during their 32 years of marriage. They loved to ski, snowmobile, and snowshoe with their daughters in the winters. During the summers, they enjoyed incredible hikes with wildflowers and mountains galore, biking around Lake Dillon, whitewater rafting, and going on day trips to nearby towns. Bill and Kathy had a dream to eventually own a home in Breckenridge, their favorite place in Colorado. That dream became a reality a few years ago, when they were able to purchase Alpine Paradise, a beautiful two-bedroom condo located in the heart of Breckenridge. Their trips became even more frequent and they started renting the condo when they were not using it. Bill and Kathy enjoyed the condo so much and had such a high demand for renting it out that they recently purchased Highland Heaven, a four-bedroom, four and a half bath home in the in the beautiful back country of Breckenridge. They look forward to their many visits to Breckenridge! Bill and Kathy have made their properties a home away from home and are excited to be able to help others experience the incredible adventures and the amazing beauty of all that Breckenridge, Colorado has to offer. Breck Splendor and Alpine Paradise, two other beautiful homes, are properties owned by friends. Bill manages these properties on their behalf. Whether you choose Highland Heaven, Alpine Paradise, Bear Haven, or Breck Splendor, Bill and Kathy know you will enjoy your stay in paradise.

This is an excellent house, especially for a fairly large group (we had 9), or for multi-family groups. It is large, with plenty of privacy and plenty of bathrooms. It is beautifully built and furnished, with virtually everything you might need. The kitchen is well equipped, the appliances are good, and the owner is helpful and responsive. The home features fine views and a quiet location, yet is near enough to Breckenridge for convenient access when you need it. If you're looking for a well-furnished and equipped house for a large family or a group, this is a fine choice.

The house was even better than pictured! It is beautifully decorated and truly makes you feel like you've come home! So enjoyed the large deck and hot tub. Kitchen had all and more than we needed! The house is well maintained, clean and Bill was kind enough to check in with us before our visit. He suggested Lower Cateract lake for a hike and we loved it! His wives flowers as you come up the driveway were lovely! Would love to stay here again in the future!

This is an extraordinarily well-located, spacious and comfortable house. We have rented here for the last two ski seasons. This place literally has it all, including great layout, attractive furniture and decor, comfortable beds, a multitude of flat screens and a well-equipped kitchen. The views from the hot tub are tranquil and pleasing. The owners are fastidious about maintenance and upkeep and are very accessible should there be a need. You won't be disappointed.

Highland Heaven was a joy to stay at. Bill & Kathy had supplied everything needed to include spices and coffee pots and grinders. We got our shoes wet on a Hike and used the boot dryers. The Jacuzzi Hot tub went over well with our group after both hikes and 18 Holes on the Jack Nicklaus golf course in Breckenridge. Views of the snow covered mountains while in the Hot Tub with a glass of wine really made for a memorable experience. Home is unique with every bedroom having it's own bathroom with lots of privacy when needed. The Foosball table and all the games provided kept our kids busy. Bill & Kathy H were wonderful to work with. They provided an abundance of information that helped us enjoy the area. We look forward to a ski vacation this winter and will definately stay at Highland Heaven.

Highland Heaven provided a perfect setting for our best family vacation ever! We rented this home with two other families. We were absolutely amazed when we arrived to see the beautiful views, an incredible hot tub on the deck, a stunning kitchen, and two family rooms. All the rooms had their own bathroom and closet! We came to ski, and it was the perfect house for our ski adventures-- boot warmers/dryers, ski storage, and baskets and hooks for all the snow gear. The kids had an absolute blast! They made snowmen in the driveway, went sledding on a local hill, played foosball downstairs, played various games at the game table, went in the hot tub multiple times a day, and did every snow activity imaginable - skiing, snow tubing, sleigh ride, and more. There was so much space in this house that we never felt crowded. We made some of the best memories ever. It was such a great mix of serene beauty and incredible adventures. We cannot wait to come back to this home!!!

I cannot say enough about this place or the owner! The owner was very helpful prior to our trip, giving a lot of information that we needed about the house and the local area. He was very informative about things we needed to know when traveling to a higher altitude. He gave us a lot of information about different points of interest in Breck that helped us in making decisions on what great activities we could do. The house is located in a beautiful area, close enough to town, but set up in a beautiful neighborhood with a tranquil view! It was easy to find and when we arrived everything was just as we pictured it to be. It is a beautiful home that easily accommodated our family of six. We wanted to find a place where everyone could have their own bedroom and bathroom located close to all of the activities. This was IT! Everything you needed was there. We had no trouble at all cooking our meals because all the utensils were right there. My husband was in heaven with a sub zero fridge and large gas stove. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. There was enough room for all of us to hang out and watch TV together or retreat to the bedroom where there was a TV in each plus the living room and the den. We felt right at home here and loved eating dinners at the huge kitchen table. After a long day of hiking and biking around Lake Dillon, it was so relaxing to sit in the Jacuzzi on the back porch and just feel like you are a part of nature. We could have sat there for hours reading a book and enjoying the peaceful tree lined property. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Like I said, everything we could have possibly needed was there and Bill was so helpful to us prior to our arrival. I loved Breckenridge and hope to be back this winter! I highly recommend this place to anyone who is going to Breckenridge. We have since recommended it to many of our friends.

We were looking for a spectacular Rocky Mountain destination and classy home to suit 4 mature couples (with high standards), from various parts of the country on a reunion vacation. A hard order to fill, but Highland Heaven delivered! Four comfortable, well appointed rooms, and bathrooms for everyone to enjoy privately. Plus a perfect central living area, kitchen, and large deck for catching up with our dear friends. The large deck, and hot tub (really the entire property) are surrounded by trees, yet open to the sky for great mountain ambiance, day or night. The spa is large, immaculate, and was a frequent hub for our group. The location is adjacent an amazing 27 hole Golf Course, which we were able to play in the afternoon after a quick turnaround from hiking one morning. Close to downtown Breck for strolling/shopping/dining, (and the ski mountain), but just far enough away to be very serene and alpine. We saw deer and a fox in the woods right next to the deck! HH was perfect summer getaway for us, but we can't wait to come back for some skiing! Really a cool place, and a great value. Thanks Bill and Kathy, we'll be in touch!

We stayed with a group of friends for a week. Could not believe how well appointed the home was. Everything in the kitchen to include a spice rack. Huge gas stove, wine cooler and a great setup. Bill & Kathy added a large Jacuzzi Brand Hot Tub on the deck. We watched the sunsets and hummingbirds in action. Our friends really like the private bathrooms in every bedroom and large comfy beds. All the homes have acre lots so there is lots of privacy. We were one of the first renters of the property, but I checked Bill out on www.vrbo.com/734673 and saw how easy he was to work with. I would definatley recommend this home.

We really enjoyed our stay. Only one block from Breck golf club. The hot tub was nice after our golf round. Views are great from the Hot Tub and the home. Kitchen was well stocked with anything you would need for a gourmet meal.
Very cozy feeling in the great room with the fireplace going. Two family rooms and lots of room to spread out if you have kids.
Plan on going back for ski season.

We were in awe of this home! It is by far the best vacation home we have ever rented. First, it is stunning -- every detail has been accounted for, from the hot tub on the deck under the stars (heaven!) to the kitchen with everything a person could want for an intimate family dinner or a large group gathering. We loved how it provided a relaxing, serene setting in a beautiful wooded area right outside the town of Breckenridge but was easily accessible to everything. We used this location as a perfect home base for incredible wild flower hikes (we saw hundreds of different kinds of flowers!), awesome mountain biking, area festivals, sight-seeing, fly fishing, and more. We have kids, and it was really nice that there is a second entertainment/gathering area where they can hang out and also have their own private rooms and bathrooms. This home has four bedroom and bath suites, so we can envision coming back with other families or couples too -- it would be great to be able to be together for meals, games, and relaxing, but also have our own space. The home has lots of storage and features that would make it easy for multiple families to vacation together. We sincerely loved this vacation home and look forward to coming back for skiing next winter and hopefully again next summer. We also liked that the owners, Bill and Kathy, know Breckenridge really well and gave us a lot of valuable information about the town and activities. They were really easy to work with, and working with them made such a difference in the quality of our vacation. Thank you for helping make this such a special family time. It is one we will treasure for a lifetime!
