If you need to keep up: Kylie and Kendall Jenner, as well as their mom, Kris Jenner, started the New Year in snowy luxury.
The reality stars reportedly rented a plush property in Aspen, CO, that is available for lease at the princely rate of $450,000 a month, according to the New York Post.
Kylie’s Instagram account showed her taking full advantage of the home’s upscale amenities, such as the indoor pool with a green wall and pool toys.
So, what’s it like to vacation like a Jenner-Kardashian? Here, five key takeaways on their snowy escapade.
1. A pricey escape
Let’s face it—it’s only a limited number of high-net-worth folks who can afford to spend $450,000 a month for a short-term rental. This home’s price is even expensive for this exclusive market. It’s currently Aspen’s priciest rental listing, according to realtor.com®.
It’s doubtful the fam stayed more than a week or so. Even a short-term stay doesn’t mean things are a whole lot cheaper. For this place, the winter day rate is $25,000.
However! The holiday rate is $35,000 a day with a seven-day minimum. So: $245,000 for one week. Wowza.
And a $50,000 deposit is required. So the reality TV stars probably dropped nearly a quarter-million dollars for their holiday stat. Talk about a Rocky Mountain High.
The swanky street where the rental is located does command high rents. Down the block, another listing is available for $315,000 a month.
2. Aspen options
While there are a number of listings at the tippy-top end of the luxury rental market, you don’t need to be a billionaire or even a millionaire to have a short-term Aspen stayover.
With 354 current rental listings, there are still a variety of options and price points.
The median rental rate is a manageable $4,287 per month, according to realtor.com®. A two-bed, two-bathroom condo with river views and a semiprivate deck can be had for just $790 a month.
And a four-bedroom townhome just blocks from downtown Aspen and the gondola for Aspen Snowmass comes in at $2,310 a month.
3. Amenities that appeal to A-listers
For the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” stars living the high life, the perk-packed, ski-in property they picked is a winner.
The home’s massive 20,000-square-foot layout features a huge open living and dining room with stone walls, wood paneling on the vaulted ceilings, a double-sided fireplace, and mountain views.
Along with seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, plus two-half bathrooms, the glam floor plan offers an indoor pool, bowling alley, home theater, and bar.
There’s also a gym, hot tub, sauna, and a four-car garage. The half-acre grounds include a tennis court for when the weather is warmer. And the location close to the downtown area puts it in rarified air.
4. Up by the slopes
Being on the mountain must have appealed to the Jenner sibs. Posts from social media show the sisters and even Kylie’s daughter hitting the slopes, or at least posing in the snow.
Family members were spotted indulging in après-ski activities with friends.
Plus, it gave them all an opportunity to don their very best winter apparel—an option that’s not on the table in Hidden Hills, CA.
5. The rental was for sale
It’s easy to see how the impressive residence could command this rental premium.
The brand-new build was on the market at the end of 2020 for $75 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.
If it had closed at that price, it would have been the most expensive sale ever in Aspen, the Wall Street Journal noted. The mansion appears to have come off the market for now.
The place is one of two built from a 7-acre purchase in 2006. It was completed in 2020, and was originally planned as a personal residence, but the owner put the property on the market last year. Right now, it looks as if it’s just listed as a rental—a rental that recently received the ultimate social media stamp of approval.
