"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!"
