Recent Denver Area reviews

  • Loved our first time in Golden / Denver

    "It was our first time visiting the area and we absolutely loved it! The house was cozy and charming, everything I expected and wanted. The views are great, the neighbors on the block seemed nice and the owner made me feel comfortable when we briefly met (I showed up a little early and he didn't mind at all, very friendly). Went to visit Denver and I love how close this property is to so many things in the area. When we come back to visit I will definitely try to rent here again. If your even thinking about it, try it I loved this place :)"

  • Family gathering for a Castle Rock wedding !

    "Our family enjoyed a few days together as we came from around the country for my nephew's wedding. Four generations under one roof and room for other family to come and visit. So much better than a hotel stay and really room to move around. Easy to get to shopping, easy to drive into Denver or to sightseeing venues. The kitchen was so easy to use we only ate out when we were at the wedding! Thank you for the crib, the notes in the house and the homey touches ... Truly a blessing for us."

  • Exceeded our Expectations

    "We vacation frequently and have stayed in many different facilities, units and cabins. I have to say that this is by far, my favorite. The condo is more than well stocked; it is literally like arriving at home with everything that you could possible need. The living room furniture is comfortable and the bed was so great I pulled the sheets and wrote down the brand (we need a new one). There are two recliners in front of the floor to ceiling windows and we greatly enjoyed sitting and looking at the view and the clouds moving through. The only con, a very small one, was the parking is a tight spot to get in and out of. But, after the second time, I got it mastered. I've always wondered what it would be like to live in a condo in the city and now I know ... it's quite wonderful. Oh, and it's only three blocks to a lot of shopping and a huge number of restaurants. Thanks Doug, next time we return to Denver we'll be hoping you have an opening."

  • Great Rental

    "I recently went to Denver with 4 of my buddies for 4 days and nights. We stayed at this great property in Platt Park. It was a little small for us, but we knew that going in, and we got a really good price for the length of our stay. This place is in a really peaceful neighborhood with hardly any noise or traffic. It's also a walk away from a local brewery and burger joint that was delicious. The owner was also super nice. She stopped by and gave us a tour of the house and showed us how things worked, and then let us have the place to ourselves for the rest of the stay. Not to mention, there was a 12-pack of beer in the fridge when we got there. This place also had a fully stocked kitchen as far as utensils, cookware, plates, spices, condiments, etc.. so we just went grocery shopping and stocked up for the four days. After being gypped by another property owner on this site, this owner was a huge breath of fresh air. I would definitely recommend this place!"

Denver Area Travel Tips

Denver Vacation Rentals in a Picturesque Setting

Nicknamed “Mile High City,” Denver is exactly 5,280 feet (1,609 meters) high, making the official elevation one mile above sea level. It was established in 1858 when gold was discovered where the South Platte River and Cherry Creek intersect. Prospectors flooded the area and by 1860, there were 100,000 people in Denver. It is now a thriving urban city with museums, shops and historical architecture, surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains. With its top-notch sports teams and excellent reputation for dining, Denver is a great base for enjoying an action-packed vacation.

What Denver Vacation Homes Have to Offer

Renting a fully furnished apartment or log cabin is the best way for families and couples to enjoy the great outdoor space around Denver. Offering more amenities and space than a typical hotel suite, a vacation home makes a great base for guests to come and go as they please. With a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, family meals can be quickly and easily prepared, making for considerable savings. It also enables guests to fully appreciate the environment and “live like a local,” if only for a week. With plenty of space and comfortable living areas, a Denver vacation home allows everyone to spread out and have their own space, with quiet areas for reading away from the TV.

Best way to Travel to Denver

Denver International Airport is just 19 miles from the center of Denver and has plenty of flights daily from all over the U.S. and internationally. Rent a hire car or 4x4 and your fun Denver vacation is about to begin. For those who prefer to take a road trip, Denver is easy to reach from Interstate 70, 76 or 25. A vehicle is advisable for getting around the area although mountain biking, kayaking and walking are also popular.

Places to Visit Around Denver

The downtown historic district of Denver is known as LoDo (Lower Downtown) and has a wealth of historic buildings and landmarks. It is also a great place for dining. Further afield, the Three Sisters Park at Evergreen is a great place for hiking and mountain biking with spectacular views of the Three Sisters Peaks. One of the most popular areas around Denver is Golden, home to the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave. It now houses Native American artifacts and memorabilia from his Wild West shows. Golden is also the location of the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum. The Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater has some extraordinary sandstone formations which date back over millions of years. A 1.4-mile trail loops around the area, allowing for the best views. Dinosaur Ridge in Morrison is another unique attraction in an area which is rich in fossils and runs from New Mexico to Canada.

Things to do From Your Denver Lodging

Things to do in and around Denver are almost limitless. Denver has more breweries than any other city in the U.S. so a visit to one of these, coupled with a tasting experience, is a must. The area has many mountain and urban trails for biking and hiking. Shopping, museums, historic attractions and the zoo all make the city area very appealing. Beyond the city, there are hot springs to enjoy, amusement parks, whitewater rafting, train rides, gold mining tours, rock climbing, spelunking (exploring caves), antiquing, sailing, wildlife viewing, bird-watching, fishing, swimming, golf and tennis. During the winter season, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, sledding, snow tubing and ice skiing can be added to the list! There is plenty for all the family to enjoy on a Denver vacation.

Local Weather at Denver Vacation Rentals

Denver enjoys a pleasant semi-arid climate at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Low humidity, moderate temperatures and plenty of sunshine draw visitors all year long. Metro Denver reportedly has 300 sunny days a year. The higher mountains in the area receive a significant amount of snowfall during the winter months.
