Boulder studio description

Enjoy beautiful Boulder from the best location possible, right downtown, in a renovated historic 1880's Victorian home. This light-filled second floor suite offers the best views, beautiful accommodations and the ultimate in convenience for the vacationer, visiting professional or artist seeking a retreat.

This spacious suite features a private outside entrance, private patio, microwave, refrigerator, Keurig pod coffee maker, granite and tile full bath, living room with a large flat screen TV, cable, DVD and MP3 hook-up, a writing desk with complimentary wi-fi, a queen-sized bed, a view of the Flatirons and plenty of south facing windows. We offer free off-street parking and there are no hidden resort or management fees.

Enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sun set behind the mountains from a private deck. Stroll to any of dozens of fine restaurants and pick up your morning coffee from a generous handful of local cafés. Heirloom roses grace the grounds that make this property a legend among local rosarians.

Let us provide you with extra amenities to make your stay more comfortable. These include housekeeping upon request, laundry by the pound, and a local’s knowledge of the best hiking, dining and entertainment venues.

Our central downtown location, coupled with nearby public transportation to Denver and the Eldora Ski Resort, make this the perfect no-car vacation. The Colorado University campus is an easy 15 minute walk away. Rent a mountain bike and all of Boulder is within your reach.

We operate a third floor VRBO property above this location (check it out at vrbo.com/125003). This is a Victorian home and despite our best efforts to soundproof, you will hear footsteps and muffled sound, please be advised and decide accordingly. My family resides in the main house but there are NO SHARED SPACES. The only adjoining wall is in the bathroom. The private entrance to the property is up one flight of exterior stairs and there are no shared hallways.

There is a small refrigerator, microwave oven for storing and heating up leftovers, and Keurig pod coffee maker, but no actual kitchen. I provide daily dish service so you don't have to do the washing up, just leave your soiled dishes in the hall and I'll exchange them for clean ones.

Pets are not permitted.

You will enjoy the best Boulder has to offer in a warm and well-appointed Victorian suite, right in the heart of town.

Marijuana is legal in Colorado and we welcome tourists of all kinds. Please keep in mind that we have small children and don't want them exposed to drunken or altered behavior.

Cigarettes of any kind, open flames, pipes, bongs and vaporizers are not to be used on the property (inside or out) because of the fire hazard and odor. It will result in the loss of your entire damage deposit.

Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent. We recommend that you purchase Trip Cancellation Insurance in the event that your trip has to be canceled reasons such as illness, accident, death of a family member or traveling companion, jury duty, weather conditions which cause delay/cancellation of travel or fire or flood in your home, this coverage protects your investment and will reimburse the normally non-refundable payments you make for your vacation rental.

                                        I really, really loved my time here - SO much better than a hotel room. The studio was so comfortable - Vivienne took care of so many details to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The location can't be beat - just two blocks to Pearl Street, and a few more blocks to the Boulder creek trail. It was so nice to have a private area for sitting outside and taking in the Colorado sunshine. I will absolutely stay again when coming to visit my son at CU - this studio is perfect for any parent visiting their student! Highly recommend it!

                                        I needed a peaceful retreat to help during a transitional Thanksgiving in a year of heartache and this was a very special place to begin new traditions with my family. Highlights included breakfast on the outdoor patio with a view of the Flatirons, lots of shopping and wonderful baths in the huge bathtub. I am looking forward to staying here again and again over the years. Vivianne and her family are very gracious hosts.

                                        Great location!! So close to downtown. We walked down to Pearl St each day for coffee and shopping. The studio was clean and when we had trouble with the TV working we just knocked on the door and they helped us out. The house is older and therefore you can hear some noise if there are guests staying above you but it wasn't anything that concerned us. I highly recommend this spot if you are staying in Boulder and want convenience. Will definitely return and would definitely stay here again.

                                        This was a beautiful space in a great location near Boulders pedestrian mall. The owners were great about answering questions and helping out. They allowed me freedom to check in early and they were flexible with check out times as well. If you choose this lovely space be aware that they have two young and very active children living in the house. They were not a problem but I was very aware of there presence.

                                        Owner response: Thank you for staying with us! I'm so glad you had a good time. It's true, we have a couple rambunctious boys and a very large dog. It's not a problem for most people but I want to make sure that people know that it's part of the "ambiance" around here. I hope you stay again.

                                        We felt right at home in this lovely rental. It's in a beautiful residential neighborhood and it's only a few blocks from Boulder Pearl Street mall. Vivienne and Lonny had great advice about where to eat. We also loved seeing Blue, who is a whole lot of dog. Highly recommended. Didn't need a car either. Nice plus.

                                        Loved the place! Nicely furnished interior with views and privacy on the lovely little balcony. A wonderful, restful haven within a short walk to Pearl and other attractions. We so enjoyed our week stay.

                                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                                        Property was OK, just a little older looking than anticipated. We arrived at rental after dark and there were no lights from the parking area to the house until you were right next to the house. There were lights on the stairs to the second floor, but the switch was somewhat hidden and the owner did not provide that info in her rental confirmation. Partial view of the Flatirons from the second floor; convenient walk to Pearl St. An unmarked step down from couch area to bed area should be marked for safety.

                                        Recommended for: Tourists without a car.

                                        Awesome place. Great room, great bathroom, clean and has everything you need. Location is super perfect, just 2 blocks from Pearl St. Makes for a great place to walk from, we didn't need our car except just getting to Boulder and leaving Boulder. Lonnie rec'd some great breakfast spots nearby and we couldn't rate our stay high enough. I'd come back here without hesitation if I came back to Boulder in the future.

                                        Owner response: I'm glad you had a good stay. I wish we had been able to meet. I hope you stay with us the next time you are in Boulder.
