Ski In/Ski Out in the world's premier ski destination, Aspen, Colorado. World class skiing, biking, hiking and too many other activities to list are literally right out your front door. Relax in your private spa tub or unwind with friends in the jacuzzi and heated pool just steps from the condo.
But that's just half the story because Aspen for the umpteenth time has been rated #1 by all 3 skiing magazines as the best mountain town for nightlife and restaurants. Whether it's sushi, Italian, or continental cuisine, Aspen's got it all, and it's the best!
This condo is a block and a half from the downtown action and the bus depot where you can ride for free to 3 other world class ski mountains, aspen highlands (the locals favorite), buttermilk (the beginners and terrain park favorite..that's why the x-games are there), and snow mass (wide open slopes ideal for families and skiers of all abilities).
Aspen, Colorado..No ski town can match it, and I've been to them all!
We stayed at this condo from July 9, 2013 through August 8, 2013. I spoke to the owner on the phone several times and he was very nice and made me feel comfortable renting his unit. The pictures are lovely although some of the realtor websites list it as "moderate" so I wasn't expecting luxury. When we arrived there were 16 light bulbs out and no handles on the windows so they could not be opened or closed. The towel bar in the master bath was sitting on the floor and the towel bar in the master shower was missing. The carpets smelled musty. The window screens were absolutely filthy. We weren't comfortable using the pots and pans because of their condition so I purchased some.
I called the owner, who lives in Aspen but was in Hawaii at the time. He said he would send over a maintenance man who showed up a few days later.
By the way, the tub in the master is a big jacuzzi/shower combination. It was a good 2 foot step to get into it . I would caution anyone with a mobility issue about this.
We have rented in Aspen from VRBO for almost 20 years and have never been disappointed..I've also never written a review but I felt the need to write this one. This owner lives in Aspen and the magazines on the coffee table were from 2009! He obviously doesn't check this unit out or just doesn't care about the condition his renters find it in. At these prices I think the place deserves a walk-through to be sure it's up to par.
