***Brides or Wedding Party Members - Why get ready in a small hotel room with only one sink with little counter space to get glamorous? When you, your maid of honor, bridesmaids, and mother can comfortably get ready for the big day with 3 bathrooms and a large walk-in dressing closet? Hang your gown up high off the floor in a lockable closet/room (where nothing can happen to it), instead of the back of the door in a hotel room, (where it can fall off and get wrinkled or worse.) We provide heavy duty dressing hooks, (perfect for that picture of your gown hanging up,) large mirrors, lots of lighting, plenty of storage for everything from your shoes to your jewelry, and a comfortable bench to sit and get ready on!
Just a few of the things we provide in our rentals that no other rentals do:
1. New towels every 6 months. 2. New bed linens every 6 months. 3. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair spray, hand soap, cotton balls, q-tips, hand lotion, Kleenex, body lotion, make-up remover wipes, hairdryers, and toilet paper. (Believe it or not, most rentals don't provide toilet paper. They request you bring your own!) 4. We supply paper towels, dish and laundry detergent, and basic kitchen spices. 5. A clean team that is within the family. We take pride in our rentals, because they are our homes. We ensure that each rental is cleaned thoroughly and "little touches" of hospitality are felt by each guest. 6. We really care that you have a wonderful experience. Many other rentals are offered only for certain weeks a year, and the owner has very little experience in maintaining a quality VRBO. We have 3 years of expertise in running a VRBO. We are thankful for the 100+ guests we have had the privilege to meet and have stay again with us!
Check in as early as 4PM, and check out as late as 10AM.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are natives to Colorado Springs. We have three young children who love being outdoors, and exploring new places. We enjoy hiking, swimming, and traveling. Our vacation rental home is a reflection of our love for family, and our love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We live in town, and can offer lots of suggestions on where to eat, play, and have fun as a family! This summer we were chosen for Focus on the Family's July cover :)
Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs: The Colorful Colorado home was built in the Centennial Heights neighborhood in 1959. With wide streets, mature trees, large green lawns, long driveways, and large rectangular ranch style homes. It has all the charm and simplicity of the era, but is centrally located to all of the fun!
The Unique Benefits at this House: See more! Do more! Make the most of your vacation without wasting time driving long distances to all corners of the city. We are the ONLY VRBO near Palmer Park, and central to everything else! Feel like taking it easy? Stay in and watch a 3D movie relaxing on our leather sectional. Or take a walk to the trails in Palmer Park, right behind our house! We have many guests tell us how much they enjoy the natural wildlife our VRBO has! From several deer, birds, and squirrels that visit our property daily to seeing the elusive black squirrel right in our VRBO's backyard! Serenity in the heart of the city.
Apart from convenience, a quiet neighborhood, and an open floor plan that provides easy family fun; our home is priced to be family friendly while providing all of the luxuries you would expect at nicer hotels.
Our dine-in kitchen makes it perfect for planning the next day's events over a home cooked meal, and make a perfect setting for retelling the day's excitement!
