About Kristine Brown

Hello! My name is Kristine Brown. I live in Manhattan Beach, CA but my favorite get away is Aspen, CO. I am a mother of 2 little girls and love to ski. I have a passion for decorating and combined it with a business called Big Daddy's Antiques. My Husband and I sell to Ralph Lauren, J Crew, Levi, and countless clothing stores. We were on 'Housewives of Beverly Hills' last season as the store that Lisa bought all of her furnishings from for her new bar, 'Sur'.

Kristine Brown purchased this condo in 1993

Why Kristine Brown chose Northwest

I can honestly say, that you cannot beat this location. For what you get with this rental: an almost unheard of large space, all the amenities of home and your private roof top deck that overlooks the mountain, it hard to find anything that you can compare with it. I chose this property because I feel lucky every time I walk through the door. This place makes you feel special and if it doesn't, you grew up a lot luckier than I was.

What makes this condo unique

There is great dining and entertainment just step outside the front door. I particularly enjoy Jimmy’s an American Restaurant & Bar, Cache Cache, Campo de Fiori for Italian, Pinons for fine dining, Krabloonik for game, and the Pine Creek Cookhouse is perfect for a sleigh ride or cross country skiing through the snow covered forest. The Penthouse is located in downtown Aspen within walking distance to 10-15 restaurants. The gondola to Aspen Mountain is 2 1/2 blocks away. Shuttle stop access to Snowmass and Aspen Highlands is around the corner by McDonald’s.

A perfectly lovely place to stay in the heart of Aspen.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this unit! It was beautifully decorated, comfortable and centrally located in town, walking distance to everything. Kristine and her associate Mia were very available and helpful, with phone calls and texts returned promptly. Mia even kindly made a "house call" to connect my IPod to the stereo system when I couldn't figure it out! We really enjoyed our stay and will be back soon, to stay again at the Wheeler Block Penthouse.

This Penthouse is not a condo - awesome

  • 4 of 5

The description here of "Penthouse" is accurate! This place is a single unit above a shop right in the middle of downtown. It was a great location, seriously could imagine the love for this place in high season. By far the best part about this place was the hot tub on the roof - very private and great views. We brought our dog and there are three parks within two blocks that made things easy enough for us. I had no worries about the dog staying in what looked like a designer showroom which says a lot about the quality of the place. Thank you!

There were a couple cons however: 1) Communication was a bit hit or miss - I think the owner might be new to the VRBO scene because Kristine was fantastic about directions, but the checkin/checkout process was sparse. We didn't have wifi for the first day and I hope we weren't supposed to take the trash out because I didn't see any instructions. It was a bit confusing as to where we could legally park in the middle of downtown as every street says you will be towed from 3-7am. FYI, there is a parking garage at $15/day. Kristine was nice and learned from our experience so I think it will improve at this property. 2) Don't stay here if you aren't a morning person. The trash truck comes right down the alley at 8:30am EVERY day. I thought maybe just Monday but no, every single day it sat outside our window. Very noisy and even as a heavy sleeper I couldn't sleep through it.

Another note is that October is the "off season" in Aspen and it's not a knock against the property at all as I realize we got an amazing rate because of it. Simply an FYI for others staying in the area that off season means all of the good restaurants are closed!! I'm a big Yelper and Kristine had some recommendations too and we didn't get a chance to try them - bummer. Overall the stay was pleasant and the weather was pretty good for us to enjoy some hiking. Thanks Kristine for sharing your space with us!

Great location, great beds, great hot tub, kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to get away for a few days and booked this last minute. This is right above the Georgia Brown store run by Mia. She was a friend of the owners/managers and was really helpful. She even helped us to find a babysitter one night! That really made me feel like I was visiting the community instead of just the town. The hot tub was clean with great views of both the mountain and the valley. The rooftop would be great for a bbq, but we ended up going out since everything is so convenient. There were lots of games for the kids which was nice since we did not bring enough. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes, silverware, blender, coffee machine, etc. It was a great place at a very reasonable price in a great location. I'd be happy to stay here again and recommend it to my friends.

Great location but needs maintenance and deep cleaning

  • 2 of 5

Right in downtown Aspen. Needs more attention than regular housekeeping provides.

Owner's Response: If I ever would have heard of any problems at all, I would have sent someone over to have them fixed or taken care of right away, but sadly, I never heard that anything was wrong. I am here right now and walking all over looking at everything; not sure of what he could have been talking about- I wish that he would have been more specific.
