                                We stayed in Derek & Jen's super cute studio in mid-August. The space is extremely well designed and makes for an enjoyable stay. Very comfortable bed, efficient and well-stocked kitchen, nice bathroom, very quiet. It really felt like home for the time we where there and would be comfortable for a much longer stay. Don't even consider staying at chain hotel instead of The Lab; much better value. Good location, too. Not super close to downtown but less than 5 minutes by car to the Chatauqua and NCAR hiking trails, both of which are highly recommended. An added bonus was Penny the Amazing Non-Barking Dog. Derek & Jen's adorable pooch has the run of the back yard and was always there to greet us through the fence when we left in the morning and returned at night. Derek & Jen were very friendly and gracious hosts as well. An all around great stay, would love to come back.

                                my stay at the labhouse was excellent. the apt was the perfect size for one, although two good friends could stay together comfortably. everything was neat and clean, the bed was wonderfully comfortable, and everything necessary was provided. the neighborhood was quiet and easily accessible. I found my way around to the grocery store, coffee shops, laundromat and hiking trails very easily. I highly recommend this experience!

                                We had an excellent two-week stay at this lovely studio and would definitely stay there again as well as recommend this property to friends and family. As an added bonus, our visits with Milo were true highlights of the vacation - thanks for being wonderful hosts!

                                My husband and I stayed here in early May. The apartment was very nice and the perfect size for the two of us. Our son was moving out of his dorm room after his freshman year at CU and there is an extra twin futon in the apartment where he could have slept - but he opted to stay with friends (go figure!) :) Derek and Jen were very friendly and helpful, and the apartment was clean and well-appointed. The location is great, within walking distance of coffee and grocery stores, restaurants, and CU. There is a great bike shop within walking distance where we rented some good-quality bikes and rode all over Boulder. We highly recommend this apartment!

                                Derek's apartment is lovely. The space is clean, quiet and bright. The apartment is outfitted with good quality electronics, appliances and furniture, and it's all very well maintained. The bathroom has huge ceilings and a great window in the shower. I loved every minute of my stay. I highly recommend staying here.

                                It's a comfortable studio, and Derek is a superb host. He'll leave you alone unless you need anything, and then he's right there. I've stayed there twice for two weeks, and will stay there again. It snowed during my first visit, and not only did he shovel a pathway for me every day, when the snow fell hard, he was out there early in the morning digging out my buried car! Above and beyond the call of duty.

                                My sister and I stayed here for a long weekend while working/playing in Boulder. The house was clean, well-designed and comfortable. Great art on the walls and sweet Milo milling in the yard made it feel like we found the perfect rest spot for our busy busy weekend. It is quite clear that the space was made with love, intention and skill. Thanks Derek!

                                5/14/09My wife and I (in our 60s) just spent a week at this lovely apartment. We were in Boulder for a niece’s graduation from CU. The pictures and description of the property are completely accurate. The owner was very responsive to our questions as we made arrangements for the rental. The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived. It is in a lovely neighborhood and was very quiet. I had wondered about the futon bed. It is a bit lower than a standard box spring and mattress arrangement but turned out to be quite comfortable. Downtown Boulder is about 2 miles away. We had a rental car, so getting around was no problem. But we could have easily walked to the nearby shopping center with its Whole Foods market (under the Wild Oats name) and several restaurants. We bought cereal, milk, juice, and fruit and prepared breakfast at the apartment. The well equipped kitchen would have allowed us to do much more. The only limiting factor for more ambitious cooking would have been the small refrigerator – although it was fine for our needs. The bathroom and shower were large with plenty of hot water. I would not hesitate to stay at this apartment again or to recommend it to a friend.

                                The apartment was fantastic! Clean and modern, beautifully decorated, with plenty of natural sunlight and a gorgeous view of the foothills. Location was more than ideal with hiking and biking trails, the bus and plenty of wonderful restaurants just outside the door. I felt at home right away with Julie and Derek...incredibly great hosts who were full of helpful information about the area. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone interested in spending time in Colorado.

                                This is a beautiful apartment in Boulder that is perfect for a single or couple. The apartment is modern, clean, private and well-equipped. It is light and bright, and centrally located close to all the great activities that Boulder has to offer. We had a fantastic stay for two months and enjoyed our time tremendously. The best thing about the apartment was definitely the wonderful owners, Julie and Derek, who are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They were very accommodating, helpful and showed us great hospitality during our entire stay. We would definitely hope to stay at this apartment if we visit Boulder again.
