The real estate brokers at Engel & Völkers Aspen discuss the increased demand of vacationers looking to book luxury rental properties in a Zika free destination.

The rental brokers at Engel & Völkers Aspen are reporting a higher than usual demand for vacation homes in the Aspen | Snowmass area during the early fall booking season, and many vacationers are citing a Zika-free environment as a reason for choosing the Aspen area as their choice destination. With many unknowns about the virus, travelers are flurrying to high altitude in the Rocky Mountains for fun in the snow where the risk of contracting Zika is low, unlike other popular tropical winter destinations. “In some instances, those booking our rental properties have even walked away from thousands of dollars in non-refundable deposits they put down on renting a home in the tropics,” states managing broker Summer Berg.

For those planning on coming to the Aspen | Snowmass area this winter, it is best to begin planning ahead and securing a vacation home or luxury ski condo ahead of the curve as inventory continues to dwindle. “What is great about Aspen is that there is so much to do for those travelers not keen on downhill skiing or snowboarding,” says Berg, “there are many other fun winter activities in the area providing fun for all ages such as snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, which are all suited for beginners without experience.” And to top it off, Soul Cycle just announced it will have a pop-up in Aspen this winter for indoor cycling enthusiasts. For those wanting to relax and enjoy the not-so-physical offerings of the area, there is always theatre, ballet, jazz and of course shopping and dining to the hearts desire!

For a fun filled snowy winter vacation in the Aspen area, call the Engel & Volkers Aspen office today and provide the make-up of the party and if there is a preference for ski-in/ski-out access, big views, or to be in the downtown core, and the luxury rental specialists will provide great vacation rental options within the mentioned budget. Many vacation rental properties are searchable on the website at http://www.portfolioaspen.com, but keep in mind not all properties are marketed online for privacy reasons so best to get in touch with rental market specialists at 970-925-8400.
