If you’re one of the lucky vacationers this year, you may be planning a trip to the Aspen, Colorado area and wondering whether staying in one of the many Aspen condo rentals would be a good choice for you. Well, if you like the idea of staying in a place that truly feels like a home, looks like a home, has all of the comforts of a home and is private yet part of the vibrant Aspen scene then the answer is most definitely, YES.
The good news is you’re in luck. The bad news is that there are so many options to choose from the process of deciding the perfect home away from home can be challenging. As a resort town, Aspen and the surrounding area is filled with condo rental options. You can choose from 1 to 4 bedroom condos, town homes and rental homes in the Aspen, Snowmass or Snowmass Village areas. You can expect to pay just under $200 per night for a one bedroom condo and over $2,000 per night for a super luxury rental. For ease of shopping for your vacation rental you can go through one of the many online rental brokerage companies that arrange rentals in the Aspen area.
To find the ideal condo rental for you, work backwards. First decide what it is that you want to do while on your vacation. Use Google maps to locate the places you want to visit and things you plan on doing. Once you have a clear idea of where it is you’ll be spending your time away from your accommodation, you can look for a centrally located property so that your drive times and expenses are greatly reduced. Some property rental sites will help you by narrowing down your search with the options you choose on their site. This is especially helpful if you are not familiar with the area. Once you think you’ve found a good property that will meet your needs, find it on Google maps and see how the location matches up with the places you know are likely to visit on your trip.
If you are visiting the Aspen area and don’t plan on driving there or having access to an automobile, consider finding a property that is within walking distance of the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority bus route. Riding the bus within the City of Aspen and many routes running between Aspen and Snowmass Village is free. Planning ahead to include transportation considerations can make your trip much more hassle free and enjoyable.
There are over 500 individual Aspen condo rentals to choose from in the greater Aspen area, and when you factor in town homes and vacation rental homes, the possibilities are almost endless.
