About this listing
Come visit our mountain paradise! Where outdoor play is at its best in the Colorado mountains. Enjoy our eclectic, artsy and cozy apartment, perfectly located between the wilderness and the high culture of little Aspen, CO.
Enjoy our light filled Tuscan/Morrocan apartment, styled from many international travels, with plenty of drums and wood floors made for dancing and yoga (two yoga mats provided). Queen bed in master and double in the other. Our apartment comfortably fits 4 people. There is a daybed in the living room that is suitable for a child or an easy and tolerant sleeper; similar to a birth in a narrow sailboat with full sun showers when the sun rises each morning. Or it makes for a great reading nook.
The kitchen has granite counter tops & is equipped for small dinner parties.
Full access to pool, hot tub, tennis courts & coin operated laundry will be available.
We are at the base of Smuggler and Red Mountains. Super close to town without being in it. You can walk to Clark's market and the post office too. There are also lots of free parking spaces available. Parking pass will be available.
The condo is surrounded by mountains; hikes start outside the front door. Depending on your fitness level, it takes 5-15 minutes to walk to downtown along a beautiful path past the Aspen Art Museum and across the Rio Grand River. The free Galena St. Shuttle and the free RFTA bus come by across the street from the condos, every 15 minutes to take you into town, up to highlands or into Snowmass too. Access to ski mountains on this free shuttle or the RFTA bus (8 minute ride to Aspen Mnt).
I will meet the guests upon arrival and then see them upon their leaving. I will not be around during their stay. I will give my wifi access upon arrival.
This is an amazing place. Great for small families-lots of toys available for kids if interested, but hidden in trunks it not. It is also great for two couples that are comfortable sharing space, as there is only one bathroom. And of course, it is lovely for two individuals that want their own rooms. There is seating for 4 at the dining room table, but also trays to accommodate more scattered seating on the couches and daybed.
Pool, hottub, tennis courts, free parking, free bus service, town bikes, maps, wifi, vitamix, full gourmet kitchen, tennis rackets/balls, hot tub towels, two yoga mats, outdoor community charcoal grills, blue tooth speakers, 1/2 closet space per room for your clothes, local grocery store, post office and restaurants 3 blocks away, cable and xfinity tv, guitars, hand drums, chess set and many other board and card games, candles, and children's toys if you want them.
Interaction with Guests
As much as is needed. When they arrive and when they leave. Or they are interested, they may contact me with questions at any time. Otherwise, I will not disturb them during their stay.
Our Neighborhood?? Well, you can hike, bike, run, camp or cross-country ski directly from our front door. You can catch a free town shuttle/bus from across the street that will take you to core of town or to any of the 4 local ski mountains which are all on the same ski pass: Aspen Mountain, Highlands, Buttermilk or Snowmass.
Free public shuttle and/or bus service from across the street.
Other Things to Note
In the summer, spring and fall, we offer up to two bikes to travel around on too.
No smoking inside. No pets. Cleaning fee of $100 is added to the fee. You will receive it professionally cleaned as well. Parking pass, pool pass, tennis rackets and maps will all be made available.
We had a superb experience staying here. The location was ideal - an easy walk to town, to the free shuttle bus, and to hiking/biking trails just steps away. Alex anticipated our every need. We made use of the tennis courts, pool, and hot tub. Her place was lovely; it was serene and comfortable with beautiful decor and oh! the windows. The decor was casually chic and appealed to my world view, with so many interesting objets d'art from her world travels. How convenient to have a full kitchen besides. My only difficulty was that after departing I realized I had left something behind; however, no worries! as Alex agreed to ship the item to me since I was already well on my way home. Another kindness on her part. My husband and I had a great time with our kids in Aspen; we would consider ourselves fortunate to be able to stay here again in the future. What a fabulous first Airbnb experience! Many thanks!
Great location. Alex was very easy to work with. Apartment is fully stocked. Comfortable beds and pillows. Our family enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We hope to come back!
Within short walking distance of downtown this is a cozy option for friends or family.
The apartment is great and everything we expected. It's a quick walk to town and across the street from the bus if you don't want to walk or have your ski stuff with you. Alex was super easy to work with and made sure we had the information we needed to access the apartment and enjoy aspen. The hot tub was great after a day of skiing
The place was lovely, decorated in such a cool style! And you can walk right into town, or hop on a shuttle at the end of the block to get to the mountain. I didn't get a chance to meet the host, but she was super communicative via text which was nice. We figured out after that she wasn't receiving my responses which caused a miscommunication about leaving the door locked vs. unlocked when we left, but other than that it was a smooth experience! Would highly recommend.
Heather's condo was great. Perfect for our needs while we were in Aspen. We arrived late at night and Heather was able to leave keys for us and she came over the next day to drop off a parking permit.
Her bed is very comfortable, much better than a hotel. The location is very close to the center of town and there is a public bike rack just outside.
I would definitely recommend Heather's condo to anyone looking for a whole apt in Aspen, will stay again when we are next back.
