Boulder house description

We have a beautiful home for you to rent, just minutes from CU & Downtown. It's private and quiet, with incredible views of the front range & Boulder.

It has a very open floor plan, with 2 bedrooms and a loft. There is a collection of art from around the world, including paintings from Brazil and Cuba, rugs and more from Morocco. The kitchen has an array of utensils, appliances and cooking tools, and the cupboards are generally stocked with most basics. Fully furnished, with tasteful touches like granite counters, slate & travertine flooring; walnut trim; a huge deck & hot tub.

Best of all is the view. Huge picture windows and a huge deck open out to a view of the front range from Boulder to Lyons. The deck features a hot tub, grill, Apricot tree and unique hand carved king size bed from Bali. There's not a better view or location in Boulder. There are no cars or people walking by.

We live here, but we're often out of town or out of the country. We have an eco-lodge in Africa (amongst other things) so we are often gone. We rent both our entire home or a private room depending on your need and our schedule.

When we are in town, we rent the private room for $95/night (less if you stay longer). We are very happy to share our space when in town.

Sometimes we have some flexibility to plan our travel dates according to rental opportunities so be sure to let us know whether you are looking for the entire house or just a room.
