Kendall #444 is perfect for two people. The condo was clean and the East facing views of the Twilight Peak and Needle Mountain from our patio and living room window were amazing.  One of the chairs on the patio was broken and the property manager (Keith) offered to purchase another in Durango and drive 25 miles to bring it to us. Keith cared about making our stay as good as possible! I highly recommend this place and will be back next year.
