About Monique P.

I split my work time between New York and Los Angeles. I love Aspen because it has the great food and cultural events available in both cities, set in a spectacular location where I can hike, ski, and enjoy the outdoors.

Monique P. purchased this condo in 2011

Why Monique P. chose Northwest Colorado

After years of searching for the perfect Aspen getaway, I bought at the Durant because it is the heart of Aspen, but the mountain adjacent location combined with floor to ceiling glass windows brings the outdoors inside.

What makes this condo unique

The property is ski in/out to Aspen mountain; it is the heart of town (on the two blocks between the St. Regis and The Little Nell, for those who like access to world class hotels) yet incredibly private. The complex is located on a street which ends on the mountain, so there is no thru traffic; this ensures both quiet, privacy, and more natural setting.

The condo is in a super location and just minutes away from the best of Aspen. It is well furnished and very comfortable. Monica was great and very responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend the property.

Beautiful condo in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this condo and it was the best decision we could have made. It's walking distance to everything, plus it has gorgeous mountain views outside every window. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was clean and well-stocked. The owner is fabulous. She sent us magazines about Aspen a few months before our stay. She also set up the cleaning service and the laundry, which were both included in the rate. If we needed anything, she was ready and willing to help. It's the perfect place to stay in Aspen and we hope to stay here again next year.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Aspen in this fabulous condo. Can’t recommend it enough. Great central location, close to restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and bike rentals. Immaculately clean and comfortable. Nice decor. Well stocked kitchen for those who like to cook. Very comfortable bedding. Helpful tips for things to do and restaurants. Apple TV and WiFi. We’ll definitely be back. See you again soon!

Bad experience

  • 1 of 5

Sadly my only experience of staying in this apartment was negative. I wanted to rent somewhere nice over the Christmas and New Years period 2015. Started my search in August 2015 and came across the apartment 101b Durant. The reviews were very good, which was very important to me. I spoke to owner over the phone and she really sold me the apartment. She was super accommodating and very sweet. Deposit paid, on the rental (premium for the holiday period) When I arrived at the apartment (just me and my son staying) I was shocked to find how dated and run down the apartment was. Nothing like the fresh looking apartment that I was renting on the online snaps. I was even more shocked to find that bedroom closets and bathroom cupboards were full of the owners items. Computer servers stacked on the shelves in the bedrooms, along with other items. Bathroom full to the brim of used toiletries, paint peeling from the woodwork. The stone floors which run through the living areas and bathrooms, were constantly freezing cold, although, the biggest inconvenience was there was zero laundry facilities, in the unit or the building. The owner said that she would pick up the cost of the laundry being sent out to local laundrette. This was a complete nightmare, as I had to purchase more ski clothes, due to not being able to wash and dry overnight and also several expensive items went missing. I called the owner and told her how unhappy I was with my experience in the unit. She was again, very accommodating, agreed that the apartment was tired and dated and offered to refund some money for the inconvenience and remove all the items and address the many issues which I had brought to her attention. Her cleaner came next day and placed most of the items under the 3 beds and glass tables in the bedrooms. The toiletries stayed and I endured the holiday period with the owners junk. I did not enjoy my vacation which I was so so looking forward to spending with my 5 year old, as much as I thought I would. A month after returning back to London, I noticed that the owner had not been refunded into my account. I called the owner and she refused to send the promised refund. Nightmare experience.

Must do trip!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is nicely appointed, in a great location in the center of town and a block away from the main lift with beautiful mountain views. If you have not been to Aspen it’s a must do trip, whether winter or summer. Every inch of the town is beautiful with world class restaurants, 4 mountains to choose from, all accessed by free buses. Monique is a most gracious host, accomodating and took the time to inform us on all aspects of her units and to provide valuable information so we could have a great stay. We will be back.

Location

The Durant is ski in/out, with easy access to local hiking trails (Ajax, Ute, Smuggler) and public transport to the Maroon Bells, the Aspen Club, and the Aspen Rec Center. The Durant is between the St Regis and the Lttle Nell and most restaurants and stores are within a 5 minute walk.
