What makes this house unique

This home is so easy to love! The location is ideal. Walk to town, shopping, and restaurants. Great hiking trails are just steps away. The free shuttle is also steps away and it will drop you at the base of the gondola.

So glad your family enjoyed their vacation! And thanks for the high-five in the review, too.

Perfect size house for a family of ten. Great location

  • 4 of 5

Initially we were unsure if the house would be big enough for us all. The pictures on here don't capture the size of four-floor property. But when we arrived we were very happy with the size and layout of the rooms. It was perfect for us, a family if ten with teenagers and toddlers. The living, kitchen dining area was large with two sitting areas. With a further sitting area on the floor above. Every bedroom had its own deck with views of aspen mountain. And the living room has a large deck with retracting glass doors that open up the whole living room to the outside.

The kitchen is well stocked and there was a welcome basket for us when we arrived

The underfloor hearing was fantastic, and worked too well. At times we had to turn it down. And the hot tub and steam room were very welcome after a hard day on the ski slopes.

The only slight criticism was the open balustrade. Just not suitable for toddlers as they could easily fit through the gaps. A baby gate was provided which helped but we had to improvise at the bottom of the stairs to prevent the little ones climbing up.

The owner and property manager were very responsive to our questions before and during our stay

A super property which we would definitely use again and would recommend to anyone

Unique house in great location

  • 5 of 5

The topography dictates that this house has quite a few stairs, so it is not a house for everyone. But for us 8 adults, no children, it was perfect. Four bedrooms each have their own bathroom. There is a fireplace in the living room, comfortable couches and chairs, ample kitchen, dining room seating about 10, and amazing views of Ajax from many decks and windows. The interior reads like a large greenhouse with potted geraniums and loads of light. The brick and stone work coming from outside to inside in areas of the house is a design element that makes this house quite unique. And, there is a hot tub! Location wise, it is half a block from the bus stop taking skiers to the slopes of Aspen in less than 10 minutes. We loved it!

Unique, Convenient and Affordable

  • 4 of 5

655 Gibson, Aspen, CO, is a great HomeAway vacation rental for ANYTIME of year. 7 guests comfortably enjoyed this custom designed home built on the side of a hill just a 10 minute walk to the city center of Aspen! Anything that you might need to include groceries, restaurants, post office, library and outdoor recreation rentals and activities are at your fingertips. A jogging trail along the Roaring Fork River is just a few yards from the home making it convenient to navigate the town if you prefer NOT to drive. The steam room, hot tub, charcoal bbq grill and wood burning fireplace truly made this home complete for a winter ski vacation. Live plants and a skylight that encompasses most of the home allows for magnificent views of Aspen Mountain. A must stay location if you are looking for a relaxing, no-frills, unique, and comfortable place to stay in Aspen anytime of year. Comfortably accommodates 4 couples, 2 small families or a large family of 8 or more!

Home owner (Ellen) and home manager (Chonnie) are very engaged with any questions or issues that may arise before or during your stay.

We loved staying at this beautiful property.

Our family spent Christmas and New Years with our family and dogs. The house was in walking distance to town with beautiful views of Aspen mountain. It was spectacular watching the fireworks in the living room by the cozy fireplace and a glass of champagne. The home was spotless and stocked with all the essential amenities and then some.

We had a fabulous stay and would highly recommend this property.

Felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a conference and decided to bring the whole family for an extended vacation. The location was perfect and views were spectacular. They have everything you need to make you feel right at home. This home is close to walking trails and close enough to town to walk in for shopping and dining. We brought our 3 year old and 8 month old. The stairs do have gaps in between but stairs can be dangerous for children period. The set up was perfect for our family. The owner was attentive and even mailed back a treasured stuffed animal we accidentally left at the home.
