Is there affordable housing available for about 3 months in Aspen?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My wife and I are thinking forward to the 2013 season and her first choice for a 3 month stay would be Aspen. We are a mid 50's couple looking for a studio or small 1 bedroom that won't break the bank but in a location that would not require a daily drive to the lifts.

 

Pipe dream or doable?

Depend's on your budget, but doable?

 

I know a ton of agents in town, but you might want to check VRBO first?

VRBO seems weighted to the per night crowd and lacks a viable serch engine to narrow the results to what I am looking for. I would have to wade through hundreds of listings and hope to find something. 

 

I have been checking the Aspen Times but so far, not much. It's still way early but I have to get the planning going.

Agree with you on all points.  Trip Advisor is also more geared towards shorter stays, but their search features are better than VRBO try http://www.tripadvisor.com/VRACSearch?inDay=5&bathroomsAlt=1&geo=29141&manager=&save=true&formGeo=1&tab=&pid=4456&sleeps=2&bedrooms=1&inMonth=01%2F2013&checkIn=1%2F5%2F2013&outDay=6&checkOut=4%2F6%2F2013&searchAll=false&token=d1b9bbb911e60b9b3a3b01dc61833af5&q=Aspen%2C+Colorado%2C+USA&outMonth=04%2F2013&insertFeatured=

 

If you don't have any luck there, you can try the shotgun approach with VRBO as they save your inquiry info allowing you to contact a lot of owners quickly by only skimming the listing- see who responds and look more closely at those places.  Craigslist is another potential place to look or post yourself.

 

Airbnb might be another option http://www.airbnb.com/tell-a-friend?airef=nklmz588b4zz5 or you could call my friend Angela at IntraRez 1-970-368-6641 as she has done a number of longer stay bookings for people in CO.

We did this for a month long stay at a different resort in Colorado using VRBO (use the save inquiry feature) We also tried agents and Trip Advisor (which had fewer listings for our area by a large margin), but VRBO was the best bet in the end. A lot of places that rent for one night will give you a great break if they can rent for the whole season and some list weekly and monthly prices. find the ones you like that are reasonably priced per night or week, look at their calendar to see if they're booked, then send them an email and see who responds. We even got it done with pets in tow.

 

To your initial question, unless you idea of not break the bank is different from most.... roflmao.gif
