Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps Up To 6. Heated Pool And Sauna. Downtown Aspen

We just bought this fabulous condo and have fully remodeled it. Modern white walls and doors, new gourmet kitchen with double oven and redone bathrooms. All new furniture and light fixtures -- romantic chandeliers and bedside sconces and custom wood closet organizers. Hot pool, sauna and laundry on site.

This condo is great for a family or a group of friends. It sleeps up to 6 with the sofa bed in the living room. The gourmet kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances is great for cooking when you want to stay in and the condo is steps from the fabulous restaurants and nightlife that aspen has to offer !!

3 flat screen tvs guarantee everyone can relax on their own or come together around the cozy fireplace.

There is a wonderfully heated pool and sauna across the parking lot and there is a laundry room right next to the sauna.

We are 3 blocks walking to the silver queen gondola and just another 2 blocks to the free buses to highlands, buttermilk and snowmass. You don't need a car, but we provide parking if you have one !!

We live in snowmass village, just down the road if you need us for anything. We can connect you with snowmobiling, horseback riding or the best place for a massage (at our chiropractor's office !!!).

Aspen guide

How to get from the airport to the condo:

There are taxis from the aspen airport — it is just 4.5 miles and about 10 minutes driving so the taxi is not expensive

Best place for rental equipment

If you are driving up from denver breeze ski rentals just as you are leaving denver is about half of the price of renting in aspen — here is a link:

If you need to rent in aspen:

I think you can get a slight discount if you rent your eqipment and buy your lift tickets as a package

Lift ticket information

The same lift ticket is good at all 4 mountains. There are slight discounts for buying multiple days (but just a few dollars) and a $20 discount for half days which start at noon.

Mountain information:

We usually spend 2- 3 days at snowmass

Eat at café suzanne — cafeteria style -- over the the elk creek gondola and have the beouf bourginon — beef stew so good my husband and i talk about it all year.

There is a great 20 minute hike at the top of this side of the mountain that takes you to an out of bounds but in bounds experience — the run is called long shot and you access it off the top of the elk camp lift — if you have skiers of a variety of level it is something you can do together.

On the snowmass mall, venga venga is upscale super yummy mexican — sit down restaurant

In the new lower mall area sneaky's tavern is great for lunch or apres — sit down restaurant:

Highlands

You should definitely also try highland's (another one of the mountains — most vertical drop in colorado) and plan to have a somewhat decadent lunch at cloud nine:

Ajax — aspen mountain

And the usually 2 days on ajax — aspen mountain, steps from the condo — and you have to eat at ajax tavern (we usually eat there 2 – 3 times in a week) right at the base os aspen mtn.

Buttermilk is more of a beginner mountain but has great cruising runs !!!

Transportation to the mountains

Bus from aspen to snowmass to ski – where does it leave from, is there a schedule, does it cost money

The ski bus is free from 8 am – 4:30 at rubey park— here is a link to it on a map from the condo — just 3 blocks down durant — you can get shuttle to snowmass and highlands:

Restaurants — there are so many — but these are some aspen favorites:

Matsuhisa — amazing, expensive and amazing again sushi

Ajax tavern — can't be missed

Jimmy's — great for steak

Cache cache — bar menu — super beautiful and much less expensive than the restaurant

Campo di fiori — wonderful italian — not too heavy

Ute city — kind of fusion — really good

Weinerstube for breakfast

Jour de fete — french deli/bistro/take-out

Kenichi — cool atmosphere, great sushi

Asie for delivery chinese

The big wrap for wrap sandwiched and salads during the day — cash only

We have a great snowmobiling connection if you want to take a day off of skiing

Sky hotel — they have a great fireplace lounge for apres ski

Or just lounge on the sofa in the condo with a glass of wine

About Elizabeth

Tomas and I have recently moved from Costa Rica to Snowmass Village. We lived in South Beach and Coral Gables for 4 years before departing for Costa Rica with our son for 5 years. We have an Argentinian Dogo and a Cane Corso -- big dogs -- that complete our family. Our business is Real Estate Development and we use HomeAway for pleasure (Barcelona, St Tropez, Salt Lake City) as well as a part of our business. The best thing about vacation rentals is the people we meet virtually and for real !!

Elizabeth purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Elizabeth chose Northwest Colorado

We love the location of this property as well as the views and how cozy it is. The big heated pool is a big bonus !! The condo gets lots of light and has a great feel !! We love Aspen and we are excited to have a 2nd vacation rental here !! Our other one is a 3 bedroom just 1.5 blocks away !!

What makes this apartment unique

The big deck is amazing for lounging in the summer time !! The views are gorgeous and the pool is a plus !!

Great locale, clean, comfortable, good support

  • 4 of 5

Condo is very convenient to town. Clean, comfortable, and quick response from the 'owner'. Comfortable and pristine bedding. Has all the accessories you want. Parking can be a little difficult, and note that bathrooms are in the hall...

Nicely decorated centrally located gem

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place right near the downtown Aspen center: Well decorated with incredibly comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen. Elizabeth was great. She was responsive, flexible and easy with which to work. I had to tweak my dates a couple of times and she was kind and understanding. Great place!
