Had a wonderful experience. House was super nice and clean. The owner was very responsible with the weather and activities that were going on. The last night we were there she asked that we not go anywhere because of flood water. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

The property was clean and as described. The property owner went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and was attentive and responsive to our every request. Our children loved the games that were available.

Wonderful personal service!
Wonderful personal service!
I can only reiterate what others have already said and sing the praises of Karen who really makes this vacation home. Her communication prior to and during our stay was excellent. She called round on the first evening of our stay as there had been a slight problem with one of the fans, and gave us a restaurant voucher to make up for any inconvenience, which was above and beyond what she had to do. She also promised to get the Disney channel for the kids and it was there the very next morning. She provided ingredients for the first night dinner and a giant cookie with the kids names on it, they loved that. Manitou was just part of our overall Colorado vacation and we arrived home to Ireland jetlagged and tired today to find a note from Karen, via airmail, thanking us for our stay. What a lovely lady! The property itself met all our needs, with plenty of space for the four of us. We had a few problems with the electrics tripping but that was because it was so very hot in manitou at the time and we had all the fans running, which caused them to go. It did get very warm upstairs but it was in the 90s so no wonder. The location was quiet during the day with plenty of parking. There was one night when we heard some disturbances outside which seemed to be someone who had had one too many beers and decided to discard the bottles rights outside, but other than that it was fine. Many thanks Karen!

Manager response: Thank you so much for your kind review and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I especially enjoyed the photo you shared of your kids at the Wolf sanctuary and the 'active' schedule you maintained, including hiking, biking, and 3 times at the penny arcade in downtown Manitou Springs. It was such a pleasure to have you and your family come to the mountains. Please join us again next time you find yourselves traveling from Ireland to Southern Colorado.
Exactly as described....Owner wonderful to work with!
Exactly as described....Owner wonderful to work with!
Let me start off by saying Karen is absolutely fabulous to work with! We were supposed to stay in the condo a year prior -- right when the Waldo Canyon fire erupted and was dangerously close. Karen was MORE than accommodating, and offered to let us postpone our stay due to the unpredictable nature of the fire. She in no way (according to the contract we'd signed) HAD to do this, which speaks to her kind nature and respectability in the way in which she chooses to do business. For this alone, we are extremely grateful -- Thanks again, Karen! The condo is exactly as described, with accurate pictures. This is the third vrbo vacation home we've stayed in, and was by far the cleanest. Karen has thought of EVERYTHING! There are so many extras as well as and ample supply of staples provided, I honestly can't imagine a person finding themselves in need of anything during their stay. My kids immediately claimed the downstairs area, naming it the "Kid Cave". They loved having their own beds, bathroom and TV down there, and spent a lot of time in the back yard and on the hammock! It was nice to have that bit of separation, so everyone could relax and have their own space when we were there. It's a very quite area...we never even heard a neighbor. Saw deer almost every time we came and went! I would say you would have to be quite ambitious to walk all the way into town, but that's one of the reasons the condo is in a quiet location, and you don't have the hassle of worrying about parking. Karen goes above and beyond as far as communication goes as well, even contacting us to give us advance warning when there were heavy rains being predicted. She was literally always a text or phone call away! I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with their stay at this condo. If there were to be any problem, I'm confident (after extensively dealing with her for over a year now) that Karen would make every possible effort to quickly rectify the situation. Overall, we would gladly recommend this condo to anyone. It's conveniently located near town as well as the highway...easy in/out, in a GORGEOUS area with unlimited things to do. We had a great time and highly enjoyed our stay. Much appreciation to Karen for her thoughtfulness and ease to work with!

Exceptional Customer Service
Exceptional Customer Service
Over the last several years, I have rented several homes all over the country through VRBO and Home Away. NEVER (and I mean NEVER) have I experienced the exceptional customer service and clear communication that I did when working with Karen! Her rental contract, instructions and process were very clear. She even called me in advance to let me know about fires that appeared to be close to the condo. In a previous review, I noticed folks complaining about the heat and distance to downtown. I found the distance to downtown to be exactly what the ad quoted. In an location where the average high temperature in June is 79 degrees, I have a hard time holding the condo owner responsible for not having central air conditioning when the temp gets to 90. Condo ads mention that the house doesn't have central AC! The condo was as described online. Karen was outstanding to work with. Frankly, the fact that she supplies a dinner, a breakfast and paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.) makes life so much easier and is so very different from other homes that I've rented in the past. Thanks for the exceptional service! I wish that every property owner was like Karen!

Amazing stay for our family!
Amazing stay for our family!
The property was perfect. Very clean and welcoming. I needed a place for my family visiting from Grand Junction and Oregon to stay. This was close enough to where I lived (Woodland Park) but far enough away to make it extra special for me too. The extras made a true difference. The owners provided the makings for our first dinner, which was an amazing bonus. It gave us time to search for the right grocery store the next day. We had more than enough clean towels for five of us. The washer and dryer also allowed for light packing. The location was perfect for visiting touristy sites in the area. Cave of the winds and the Pikes Peak cog railroad are minutes away. We found a trail close by, about a mile up Crystal Park Road. It was just the right climb. On the way back to the condo after hiking we stopped at the Crystal Park Cantina. They have THE best margaritas...the jalapeno and mango were amazing! The basement provided a great place for the younger adults to hang out. There were games and they had their own TV. There was also a sliding door to the patio where they could relax on the hammock. Everyone was really happy with the amenities. We never had to worry about our privacy being interrupted. Truly a blessing for us to come together is such a great spot. We will come back the next time we reunite. I've already referred friends.

Summer Stays difficult
Summer Stays difficult
The condo is very convenient to a lot of activities and attractions. We were very disappointed in several aspects of the location. First of all, it would have been difficult to walk to town. The air conditioning and WiFi were inadequate. The whole electrical system needs to be redone. It was in the 90's the whole week we were there and the circuits blew if we used the air conditioner in the living room and kept the lights on. It is not a central system but three different upright conditioners, two of which could not be operated at the same time. The plug in the downstairs bathroom would not support a small night light. The WiFi cuts out often...we changed the modem over to another outlet and found it worked fine. The conclusion was that at least one of the kitchen outlets were miswired. The patios were very nice but there was no comfortable place to sit and relax and the patio furniture and the patios themselves were very dirty. When we arrived, the garbage can and the recyclable can were both filled to capacity and the garage smelled like the garbage had been there for quite awhile. We set both cans out on Thursday where and when instructed and they were not picked up by the carrier. We also had two days when we were inundated with ants. We would stay at the Days Inn if returning to Manitou Springs.

Manager response: Thank you very much for staying with us, feedback always makes us better. The fire in Black Forest, which is now out, did make things much hotter than normal during your stay and of course was also the cause of the heat, ants and trash pick up delay. All has been taken care of from the moment we knew of the issue. While we have always maintained a 5 star rating we realize that some things, such as a fire, happen out of our control. We are 100% available by phone during every stay and will always take care of any problem on the spot. So, please call as we want your stay to be as enjoyable as possible. Thank you again for staying with us
What we expected and more
What we expected and more
We stayed here last April and had a wonderful time. The condo was clean, welcoming, great location, and the perfect place for a family get away. We enjoyed walking to restaurants, playing in the back yard, curling up by the fireplace, the game room, the yummy dinner that welcomed us the night we arrived and exploring town. One thing we did not understand is that one of the upstairs bedrooms has a partial wall that is open to the family room below. It was not ideal for kids who go to bed earlier. The owners were great to work with, the home is nicely decorated and we can't wait to go back. Thank you! I apologize for the delay in writing the review and my guess at our dates on the calendar.

Manager response: Thank you so much for your review and I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our 3 bedroom townhome located in the heart of Manitou Springs, Colorado at the foot of Pikes Peak. I do hope you will come back again as your schedule permits to take advantage of all the family activities, hiking trails, and beautiful scenery Southern Colorado has to offer!
This house wa a wionderful place to call home while we were in the Pikes Peak area. It was very clean and neat when we arrived. The description and pictures were accurate. There were six of us and there was plenty of room to be together or have privacy. Karen was very helpful before our arrival with advice and with answering our concernes. We appreciated the items that were left for us to prepare supper our first night. The home was very well stocked with neccesties. I would recommend this home to anyone. A couple of places we enjoyed eating were Rudy's BBQ and the Airplane Restaurant. We also enjoyed the yougurt at the Colorado Yougurt Company. The home was well located to the attractions we visited.
