About Richard Middelberg

The Middelbergs (Hans, an active real-estate developer, and Maria, a fashion consultant) hail from Greenwich, CT and purchased the Alpenblick townhouse over thirty years ago when Aspen was just beginning to blossom as a world-class resort. The town's sophisticated ambience, surrounding natural beauty, and unrivaled sports and entertainment possibilities remind them so much of their native Europe that they'd rather head west than east nowadays. Both agree that 'the worst day in Aspen is better than the best day anyplace else in the world,' and invite you to plan your next vacation at the Alpenblick.

Richard Middelberg purchased this townhome in 1981

Why Richard Middelberg chose Aspen

The townhouse has been a vacation destination of many of Aspen's discerning visitors as well as countless family and friends. Hans and Maria immediately recognized Aspen's unique attraction on their first visit in the early 80's and decided to buy a pied-a-terre in this wonderful corner of the world. Whether you are an Aspen regular or first-timer, allow yourself to experience this exceptional corner of the Rockies at the Alpenblick.

What makes this townhome unique

This Alpenblick luxury property combines several key features available in only a handful of other high-end Aspen rentals: 1. mountain views and coveted location at the base of Aspen Mountain steps away from the gondola or downtown, 2. complete renovation and upgrade to the latest interior designs with luxury amenities including central air conditioning and humidification (alleviates Aspen's dry climate and/or allergies), woodburning fireplace, and full size washer/dryer, and 3. four full-size bedrooms with king beds (2 of the rooms convert from double twins to one king each upon request) featuring all in-suite marble baths and central AC. The Alpenblick luxury townhouse is one of the very few properties in Aspen at this level that will accommodate 8 adults in equal luxury without relegating anyone to the 'kids' or 'spare' room. Conversely, guests with young children +/- nanny and/or several teenagers will appreciate the privacy, individual entertainment systems (TV/DVD and Ipod cradles), and complimentary wireless broadband.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Richard, We very much enjoyed our stay in #2. A very beautiful home and hope to be able to rent it again next Christmas. Our thanks and best wishes for 2013.

Wonderful location and beautifully furnished!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the unit. The location was extraordinarily close to town, the upscale amenities were terrific and not expected. Since the entire interior is practically brand new, we had no issues with anything that we used. Large flat screens in all bedrooms and den, plenty of room to hang-out and the beds were extremely comfortable. The pool couldn't have been more convenient as it was probably 20 steps from our front door. Parking was convenient. It's not often that the bath towels, paper towels and toilet paper are as we use at home, but they were. Next time to Aspen when I need that amount of space, this would be my absolute first choice.

It was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was beautiful, and within walking distance of everything in downtown Aspen. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking tools or appliances you will need. There is also a nice view of the mountains from the master bedroom veranda. I would highly recommend this unit.

Great place! Poor owner communication without promised services.

  • 3 of 5

So we ended up with no parking, no internet and no maid service. We worked thru the first 2 and sill hope for credit for the third. Owner difficult to communicate with after you have already rented. VERY nice unit. Chuck Meyer

Owner's Response: Hello Chuck, I'm sorry you felt our service to be below your expectations. The welcome email which you received referenced an attached pdf flyer which explained the parking procedure and internet access. Also provided was contact information for our concierge Tish Jimenez who lives in Aspen. Further provided was my own phone number. Every one of our guests receives this information in the same manner and I've never had a miscommunication. Had I received a phone call from you I could have resolved any misunderstandings on the spot. Let's try again next time! Regarding your credit, I had asked you for a mailing address for a check as vrbo will not allow me to refund more than your original security deposit. Will you send it to me? Thanks.
