My name is Jackie and my husband and I manage this rental for a friend who lives out of state. Although I'm not the owner, I'm not a property management company. We have owned a vacation rental in Colorado Springs for 7 years. I live in this same neighborhood and am always available for help with the house or with the area. We have a great housekeeper and I visit the house each time before our guests arrive to make sure you'll be satisfied with it. Our standards are high as is our respect for our guests.

About the owner: I'm in the U.S. Air Force and originally from Long Island, New York. After 10+ years in the military, I've lived in many places...but have always wanted to come live near the mountains in Colorado. After spending 4 years in the Washington, DC area, I finally had that opportunity to come to Colorado.
Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs: I set out to purchase my first home here upon arrival in Colorado Springs, and absolutely fell in love with this home from the moment I saw it. With everything I wanted -- historic character, modern touches, open layout, and close the heart of downtown, this unique home is my dream house.
The Unique Benefits at this House: As an avid entertainer, I thoroughly enjoy the gourmet kitchen and dining table for 12+... but the media room is the feature that initially caught my eye, and I've hosted numerous movie nights and viewings of major sporting events here.
