With safety and sanitation now at the top of all travelers' minds, our teams have been hard at work examining our procedures for our Aspen vacation rentals.
We have served Aspen visitors for more than 45 years, and the safety of our guests, homeowners, and staff has always been our top priority. Many of our cleaning protocols have been in place for decades.
Plus, vacation rentals have innate features that enhance guest safety:
NO SHARED AIR
across common HVAC systems
instead of common hallways*
FULL, PRIVATE KITCHENS
to prepare meals or unpack/serve delivered items
BALCONIES OR PATIOS
to enjoy the outdoors in a private setting*
During our community's shutdown, we have updated our practices to ensure we comply with local and federal guidelines. Additionally, we belong to the Vacation Rental Management Association, which gives us unique guidance on how to best serve our guests and homeowners.

Contact-Free Check-Ins & Check-Outs
Although our Front Desk staff is equipped with PPE and trained to comply with social distancing requirements, we are happy to accommodate a contact-free check-in and check-out process. To request a contact-free check-in, please get in touch with our Front Desk in advance of your arrival: FrontDesk@FriasProperties.com or (970) 920-2000.
- Registration forms and rental unit information can be sent via email.
- Most of our rentals have keyless entry systems, where guests enter a unique code generated for their stay to gain entry to the condo or home.
- If your chosen rental has hard keys, we are happy to provide keys via "trunk drop" or leave them in an envelope outside our office at an agreed upon time.
Interested in a completely contact-free stay? We can modify our housekeeping services. In this case, we overstock your unit with cleaning supplies and towels/linens and pick up trash from outside your front door.
Professional Housekeeping by Tenured Staff
Unlike a rent-by-owner stay, your experience with Frias Properties comes with many complimentary amenities and services, including daily housekeeping.
Our housekeepers are all on staff, and we monitor their health when they check in for work each day. They are provided with PPE, including masks, disposable gloves, eye protection, and personal hand sanitizer. Gloves are changed between properties and after certain in-unit tasks.
We have rigorous cleaning protocols that now include disinfection procedures. Here are some highlights:
SEASONAL DEEP CLEANS
Each spring and fall, our teams conduct maintenance inspections and deep cleans of all our rentals. This process allows us to fix any broken or worn out equipment and furnishings as well as move furniture and appliances to thoroughly clean all areas of the rental.
NEW: During this season's deep cleans, we removed accent blankets and decorative pillows that cannot be frequently laundered.
PREPARING RENTALS FOR NEW ARRIVALS
Our check-out cleans involve a thorough process to completely reset a rental for the incoming guest. After the housekeeping teams have serviced a condo, home, or hotel room, a housekeeping manager inspects the rental to ensure nothing was missed. These processes are documented in our software system and allow for real-time updates between departments.
Our daily services have been updated to include disinfection of high-touch surfaces in kitchens and bathrooms. We allow for more time during our daily cleanings, so that our aerosol disinfecting solutions can properly adhere to surfaces and eliminate virus and bacterial particles.
Please note that our housekeeping staff will only clean your rental when it is unoccupied. We will ask for your preferred cleaning times at check-in.
LINENS & TOWELS
We provide luxury bedding in all our condominiums and homes. Both our linens and towels are professionally laundered using high-temperature washing machines. We have removed decorative blankets and pillows that cannot be laundered frequently.
IN-UNIT SUPPLIES & MATERIALS
We stock our rentals with antibacterial hand soap and dish soap as well as extra cleaning spray and paper towels. This allows guests to handle small cleaning issues without requiring housekeeping staff to make extra visits.
NEW: We have removed all printed materials, like magazines, maps, and dining guides, and we are hosting our Aspen activity guides on our website.
CONCIERGE SERVICES TO ENHANCE YOUR ASPEN VACATION
Our concierge team is at your service to enhance your stay and increase your safety while you are on vacation. We can coordinate the following services and experiences that may be especially helpful this summer:
