What makes your perfect vacation condo? Is it location? Number of bedrooms? Fabulous design? Your own flat screen TV in your room? Ease of working with the owner? Or is it that je ne cest quoi -- you can't put your finger on it, but this condo feels like home -- or better than home!
We have 2 vacation rentals in Costa Rica -- a 7 bedroom in Tamarindo called Casa Ilios and a 4 bedroom in Santa Teresa and we have vacationed all over the world. We have taken this knowledge and experience and put it into our just remodeled Aspen condo. We have combined the luxuries of a hotel with the comforts of home.
The location cannot be beat. Steps from the Silver Queen Gondola and right next to the super market, wine and liquor store and all of Aspen's fine dining and nightlife. Many condos are right up on the hill, but not right in town.
Pillows, humidifiers for each bedroom, luxurious marble and glass tile bathrooms, fabulous lighting, a gourmet kitchen with an oven big enough to cook a huge turkey !! The kitchen has all you need for all types of cooking from baking to fondue. There is a full size washer and dryer right in the apartment.
We supply everything from hair dryers to magnifying make-up mirrors and an ironing board. There are candles for romance and a blender for smoothies. There is Wi-Fi if you have to work and 10,000 videos On Demand if you don't. Each TV has its own cable box and Ipod dock. The Blue ray Disc is Internet enabled for streaming Netflix.
In other words -- you never have to leave the condo -- but you will -- there is so much to do and you are right in the middle of it !!!
Why the Owner Chose Chateau Dumont: When I first saw the view from the deck of our condo, I could not believe it! I had never seen the mountain so close up !! I love our location because many condos are steps from the Gondola, but few are so close to City Market and that makes all the difference when you are running out for snacks on a cold winter night. The condo is so central that I can wear my high-heeled boots out in winter and still make it to Cache Cache. In summer you just have to walk outside and hop on the Ute trail for gorgeous hiking or walk a couple yards and order something to drink to enjoy the pool and hot tub at the Sky hotel! Even more, Aspen is such a special place. Dogs take deposits to the bank in exchange for doggie treats from the tellers and people really still leave their keys in their cars. There is some of the finest dining in the country as well as backyard bar-b-ques. It IS true that it is better in summer, but the skiing and snowboarding are pretty fabulous, too!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: In our condo you can lounge with your friends in the hugely oversized sofa looking at Aspen mountain or you can close the door to your room and take a well deserved rest watching your own TV without having to fight over the remote. You can cook a gourmet meal in the fully stocked kitchen or stroll down the street to a fabulous dinner out. You can enjoy a glass of wine from your private wine fridge or head next door to the tasting room at the Little Nell. If you have friends over, you won't run out of ice from your own under-counter ice-maker! You can sit outside on the deck watching the sun set behind the mountain. You can ski or ride all day or you can wander around town and then nap on the sofa. It is a real vacation !!
As you come into town you will notice that Aspen is under construction from the very entrance of town to the City Hall and the Catholic Church to the W hotel across the alley from us. The loud stuff was completed last summer and our guests all winter had no issues -- but we don't want you to be surprised !! They start work at 8 am and don't work weekends and holidays. Quite soon they building will be enclosed -- it happens really fast and they open in February of 2019 -- this winter !!!
Our guests will have access to their fabulous amenities like their rooftop pool and lounge !!!
