Luxury Living in Downtown Aspen 120 yds to Gondola
We have vacation rentals in South Beach, Costa Rica and Coral Gables and previously in La Jolla, CA 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 -- 725 E. Durant Ave. 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.
We have put so many amenities into the condo -- from 4 flat screen TVs so no one is ever fighting over the remote after a long day outdoors, to heavenly beds and 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 Netflicks.
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 !

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 !!!).
Swimming pool heated to hot tub levels !! Sauna. Laundry. Parking. Fireplace -- free wood on site. # blocks to the gondola and 2 blocks to restaurants and night life.
We live 20 minutes away and are available as you need us -- or not at all if you prefer !!
What not love -- hiking, skiing, snowboarding, drinking, dancing, pilates, yoga, restaurants, shopping !!!
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.
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:
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
You can walk to everything !! Including the free buses to all the ski areas !!
