Why Monique P. chose Northwest

After years of searching for the perfect Aspen getaway, I bought at the Durant because it is the heart of Aspen, but the mountain adjacent location combined with floor to ceiling glass windows brings in the great outdoors.

What makes this condo unique

The property is ski in/out to Aspen mountain; it is the heart of town (on the two blocks between the St. Regis and The Little Nell, for those who like access to world class hotels) yet incredibly private. The complex is located on a street which ends on the mountain, so there is no thru traffic; this ensures both quiet, privacy, and more natural setting.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

From the minute I enquired about the property 6 months before our stay Monique was amazing. Any questions prior to the trip were promptly answered and she was patient as I was trying to organize family from Australia. Arriving and finding the place was super easy with her instructions.

The place was exactly as described. It is very well maintained and Monique has ensured that anything you could possibly need in a property for a ski trip is available. The thought and details that she has given to the amenities made the stay so enjoyable that it feel like we were at our own home.

We had no issues while we stayed- Monique happily re-scheduled cleaning to suit our plans and was always on hand to answer any questions we had.

The place is spacious and tidy.

The location is perfect. One block away from transport, the Silver Gondola and restaurants and bars. It is pretty quiet on the street which gives it a tucked away feel yet you are right in the middle of it.

I would highly recommend the property and Monique. Thanks again for making our family trip just incredible!!!

Wonderful Property, Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this unit for 8 days this past December. There were 5 adults in total. We were extremely comfortable and impressed by how well appointed the unit is. We were even more impressed by the owner, Monique! She was so communicative throughout the entire booking process, and she went out of her way to be sure that we were comfortable during our stay. When I say that Monique has thought of every detail imaginable to have the unit well stocked with everything you could want, I am not exaggerating one bit. She asked me if there was anything lacking in the unit, and I racked my brain to think of something but still came up empty!

Personally, I am very picky about my bed and linens - I am always a bit leery of what I will find when I stay somewhere other than a trusted hotel - but I was very pleased with the bed/bedding in this unit. I've also noted over the years that many vacation rentals have limited TV/Cable, which can be annoying when you get off the slopes and want to plop down for an hour on the couch and "veg out" to your favorite show. This unit has a fully equipped entertainment center, and it was easy to use... even for some of the more electronically challenged people in our family.

The location of this unit is primo! I used to live in Aspen, just up the hill from The Durant, and everyone always marveled at how perfect of a location it was. The Durant is even better than my old condo because it is actually ski in/ski out. Call me lazy, but not having to walk to and from the gondola with all my gear was fantastic! However, I will also say that the walk to the gondola is extremely short and easy, so you really can't go wrong either way.

One thing to note is that because the laundry facilities are not yet available, you will need to use a laundry service. It is very convenient to use, but you will need to pay for the service. We used the service once over the trip, and it was well worth it.

Overall, I cannot say enough about how pleasant our stay was! Every time we go to Aspen, I find myself not wanting to leave. Staying in this unit made it even harder to leave because it was so comfortable and convenient. I cannot wait to go back and stay here again!

Aspen Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this rental. We had 7 people at the unit which worked for us since it was all family. Parking worked out because it was a quiet time of the year but if you have multiple cars you may need to arrange for additional parking permits.

1. Great view out the window and we found the unit was well supplied with kitchen and other travel needs (blow dryer, soaps and towels).

2. We did not do a lot of cooking but there was plenty of implements, spices, coffee, etc. for what we needed.

3. The owner was very helpful and responded very quickly to questions.

4. The projects hot tub is getting a little dated and was a little hot to get into but still a nice feature.

5. Very convenient to town and walking distance of restaurants and other ski resort activities

Very nice rental with amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Monique's condo was perfect! Location is less than five minute walk to shopping, parks and dining (and the gondola if staying during season). Grocery store is just a few blocks away. Condo was nicely appointed (great for meals "at home"), accessed easily and clean. Although not recently renovated as with the exterior, the interior was well maintained. Wall of windows in the living/dining area was awesome - great views and airflow when opened. Monique was a pleasure to work with and super responsive. My family and I would definitely stay again.
