About Kristine Brown

Hello! My name is Kristine Brown. I live in Manhattan Beach, CA but my favorite get away is Aspen, CO. I am a mother of 2 little girls and love to ski. I have a passion for decorating and combined it with a business called Big Daddy's Antiques. My Husband and I sell to Ralph Lauren, J Crew, Levi, and countless clothing stores. We were on 'Housewives of Beverly Hills' last season as the store that Lisa bought all of her furnishings from for her new bar, 'Sur'.

Kristine Brown purchased this condo in 1993

Why Kristine Brown chose Northwest Colorado

I can honestly say, that you cannot beat this location. For what you get with this rental: an almost unheard of large space, all the amenities of home and your private roof top deck that overlooks the mountain, it hard to find anything that you can compare with it. I chose this property because I feel lucky every time I walk through the door. This place makes you feel special and if it doesn't, you grew up a lot luckier than I was.

What makes this condo unique

There is great dining and entertainment just step outside the front door. I particularly enjoy Jimmy’s an American Restaurant & Bar, Cache Cache, Campo de Fiori for Italian, Pinons for fine dining, Krabloonik for game, and the Pine Creek Cookhouse is perfect for a sleigh ride or cross country skiing through the snow covered forest. The Penthouse is located in downtown Aspen within walking distance to 10-15 restaurants. The gondola to Aspen Mountain is 2 1/2 blocks away. Shuttle stop access to Snowmass and Aspen Highlands is around the corner by McDonald’s.

In The Heart of Aspen

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate a 77th birthday and 49th wedding anniversary. The condo is beautifully decorated, and the 2 king beds are extremely comfortable. Once you park your car in the public lot (4 blocks away) you really don't need a car since you can walk everywhere. A few things to note:

Since the property is downtown it is a bit noisier than a mountain cabin. You'll hear a disco at night and the delivery and garbage trucks rumble in pretty early.

There is a flight of stairs up to the condo, and then another short flight to the bedrooms. The rooftop area is spectacular and a great place to watch the sunset.

One bedroom has a jacuzzi/shower combo, and it's a bit tough to get in and out of the shower. There was no way I'd let my elderly relatives use that shower lest they fall.

Ladies, bring a lighted mirror if you are a makeup gal.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you can imagine. You don't need to bring any dishwashing soap, laundry detergent, etc. We did buy bar soap for showers and brought our own shampoo/conditioner.

Those beds were really amazing. We'd stay here again, but probably not with elderly relatives.

Wonderful location and very homey.

  • 5 of 5

One could not find a better location in Aspen for staying in town. Cozy yet large condo has everything a group needs. The roof top hot tub should b kept a secret though as it may b the best way to wind down a fun evening. All stores, restaurants, hotels, etc an easy walk from this great 2nd floor space. Nice big kitchen another plus. Can't wait to return. Ray

Fabulous Aspen Nest

  • 5 of 5

This place is a true gem! The location is ideal, right in the heart of downtown Aspen, easy walking distance to everything including the ski mountain. Despite being in the center of town, we found the penthouse quiet - the bedroom windows don't look out over a main street. It is better appointed than any rental I've ever stayed in - so many comfortable, thoughtful details have been provided (robes, stereo w/ iPod jack, kitchen supplies, extra towels & bedding, ski storage area, even a dog bowl for your pooch!). And it was immaculate when we arrived. It felt like hospitality at its finest. The large dining table was big enough for us to have dinner guests and the long island in the kitchen made for a nice socializing space. I really can't say enough good things about how sweet a spot this was for a family ski vacation in Aspen... we will definitely be back!
