Boulder house description

Be sure to watch our video to the left.

Then come stay in our beautiful home in South Boulder, Colorado. Your choice of:

1. The completely and newly remodeled private 2-bedroom apartment downstairs (sleeps 1-5)

2. Just one bedroom with private bath on the main floor (sleeps 1 or 2)

3. The entire home, with 3 floors and 5 bedrooms (sleeps up to 12)

Whichever you choose, you'll be staying in a newly remodeled 2600 sq. ft. house located in a quiet residential community in South West Boulder. The home has direct access (across the street) to the most extensive mountain hiking trail systems in Boulder County. Hike the trails to the Eldorado Canyon, the Flatirons, Boulder creek, or to the historic Chautauqua Park, all virtually out the front door from our home. And we're just 10 minutes from downtown.

Our place is perfect for:
- anyone wanting to stay in Boulder cheaper than the motels and hotels.
- access to a larger space than a hotel room but you're on a budget.
- nicer mattresses and sheets that most hotels
- families with kids & dogs
- those that love to cook
- travelers who love a large yard with a grill, large trees, and lots of private nature

Most of our guests choose the newly remodeled basement level apartment. Private and with over 900 square feet, it has all new carpets and paint, as well as new leather couches and furniture throughout. It has an office area, a spacious living area, a full kitchen, two bedrooms with brand new top-of-line mattresses, and one bathroom with a new walk-in glass-walled shower. There is also business-speed wifi and a large flat-screen TV with Netflix. A perfect getaway for 1-5 people. (You can view some interior images of this private downstairs apartment starting at the 1:50 mark in the video)

If you need just one bedroom on the main floor (with private bath), or want to rent the entire house for your group, just email us back.

For most of the year, you will be sharing the home with the owner, a longtime Boulder resident and outdoor enthusiast, but the common areas and private bedroom is completely yours to use.

For any guest, we supply breakfast fixings as part of your visit. These include cereals, milk, juice, coffee and tea. Just help yourself at any time of the morning.

Guests also have full access to all of the amenities. These include high-speed wi-fi in every room; access to wireless color printer / copier/ scanner. High-thread count sheets and bedding, towels, hand soap, hair dryer. Brand new top-of-the-line spring mattresses that make for a great sleeping experience.

Also included are items like free washer and dryer use (we supply the natural laundry soap), plus full access to the basics of a well-stocked pantry (oils, spices, etc). About the only thing you'll need to bring is your own brand of shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste, etc. This is a chemical-free, smokeless home. The pantry is stocked with many assorted cooking basics, so you'll find many things you need.

Direct access to hiking trails, extensive mountain and road bike trail systems, 5 minute walk to major bus routes to downtown Boulder including the famous outdoor Pearl Street Mall and seasonal Farmer’s Market or a 20 minute bike ride on Boulder’s extensive and dedicated bike trail system. Only 45 minutes to trail heads accessing the continental divide or 1 hour drive to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Only 45 minutes from Denver International Airport (DEN) and 3 miles from direct bus line to the airport.
