About Alexandra/Stefan (Owner)
Brought up in the hotel and restaurant business and over 54 years of vacation rental experience we understand what our guests are looking for.
Why Alexandra/Stefan (Owner) chose Carbondale
Because we care very much that our guests really have a wonderful time when they come to stay with us.The property is one of only 11 properties that is actually at river level. We think that our animals, the 59 ducks, frogs in spring time, daily visits from "Big Boy" the heron, the horse who thinks he is a dog and plays with a live bear (see youtube) and our dog Evie (sadly we lost Spanky this year, the best dog in the world) make it a fun place to stay as well.
What makes this Apartment unique
On the 40 mile stretch of the Roaring Fork, this home is right on the river's edge. This is one of the few properties where the bike path and irrigation ditch are NOT between the home and the river.

Cozy River Stay
We always enjoy a return trip to stay w/Alexandra & Stefan on the beautiful property and comfortable accommodations. Great location!
Quiet and peaceful
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location for our weekend trip to the Glenwood Springs/Carbondale area. Would highly recommend.
Worth every penny, loved it!!!
Tranquil spot by the river, who could ask for more
This is an amazing place to stay!
We spent 3 nights and skied the 4 Aspen ski areas in 4 days. This was a perfect home base. Only about 30 minutes from the ski areas. The property is absolutely gorgeous. Even though it is fairly close to the highway, you never hear the cars. It feels so quiet and secluded. It was so much nicer than staying at a crowded resort or hotel. The house was clean, comfortable and well stocked with every amenity you could ever need. We did not cook, but if you wanted to, the kitchen is excellent. I loved that there was tons of room to hang ski clothes to dry and even a washer/dryer if needed. We plan to return during warm weather to enjoy the river, firepit and BBQ/outdoor eating area by the river. Alexandra and Stephan are wonderful hosts. You will not meet 2 nicer people. The horse and dogs were also a fun addition. I cannot recommend this place enough. You will thoroughly enjoy your time here.
*One caution, do not trust your phone GPS. It will take you to the wrong side of the river. Remember to bring the directions that Alexandra and Stephen send you and you will drive right to it!
What a PERFECT review! Thank you for leaving the apartment so clean. Really looking forward to your next visit.
Everything you would need and more !!!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at a "Bit of Heaven". Unfortunately we had to cut our trip one day short due to impending snowstorm. The accommodations were first rate with a wealth of condiments, spices, and even coffee !! The rooms were quite spacious with even a large walk in closet. Shuttle service to the nearby Aspen ski resorts was available, but we chose to drive the 30 minute drive to free parking lots to catch shuttles to the different resorts. I would highly recommend staying with Alexandra and Stefan. They are very informative folks that know the area very well. And you will enjoy meeting up with Wasabi (horse that loves carrots and apples), and the oh so friendly Spanky 2 (puppy) !! We will definitely stay at the "Bit of Heaven" if our plans take us back to the Carbondale area in the future. Keep up the good work !!!
Thank you for your kind words and Spankytoo got his first mention!!
