  • Spectacular House and Setting, but Beware of Altitude

    "There's not much that I can add to the reviews of the house itself. Everything others have said is true: The house is spectacular, the owner does a great job of making you feel at home, and the setting is amazing. That said, I think there's something that's only been addressed tangentially in the other reviews, and that's the effect of altitude on people who may not be in tip-top shape. Our group was made up of 6 mostly sedentary people around 60 years of age who flew in from coastal areas like Portland, Oregon, and Birmingham, Alabama. We went from the airport directly to the rental house (altitude 8600 feet) and began drinking wine and catching up with each other after not having seen each other for a few years. The next morning, half of us had blinding headaches, rapid heartbeats, and a just generally crappy feeling. It only got worse as the day progressed. Finally someone thought to Google our symptoms, and it turned out we were suffering from altitude sickness. Worse, since we were totally unaware that this could be an issue and how to protect ourselves, we'd done pretty much everything wrong since arriving at Denver International Airport. It also turns out that altitude sickness can become acute at altitudes above 8000 feet. We piled into the car and headed down into Boulder, 3000 feet lower in altitude, and immediately began to feel better. One of our party nearly collapsed trying to walk to the car. Another party member had sleep apnea, and his CPAP machine failed to auto-adjust for the significant altitude shift, leading to other problems. So, if you are older and/or have respiratory issues, give serious thought to spending a few days in Denver before ascending to this house. Regardless, you should be aware of the symptoms of altitude sickness and the palliative measures: Drink at least twice as much water as you normally do, take anti-inflammatories like aspirin or ibuprofen, and, if you still feel like there's a giant kneeling on your chest, head down to Boulder or Golden. There's plenty to see and do, and you'll start feeling better very quickly. Do seek out web sites that discuss the physiology of altitude sickness, and do what you can to prepare yourself for the visit. We lost 3 days to the change from sea level to 8600 feet; we were in the house for 8 days, and the last 5 were really great. The first 3 were borderline miserable with people talking about trips to the ER. I’ve suggested to Beryle that he include some info on altitude sickness"

  • Great location...all the comforts of home!

    "The location was perfect for us, we were visiting our daughter at CU. The property was very clean, and well maintained. The complex was quiet, barely heard the neighbors. Easy access to nearby activities, great restaurants and shopping. Would definitely stay here again!"

  • Beautiful home in a great location

    "We loved staying here! The condo was larger than it looks in the pictures and the location was fantastic. We visit Colorado every year and our trips are usually pretty active. This gave us a great location with easy access to hiking, rock climbing, and bike trails. The house had everything we needed and was a great place to come back and relax after a busy day. Will definitely stay here again!"

  • Grandparents from Wisconsin

    "Brandie and Joel were very thoughtful and attentive hosts. The apartment was a warm and inviting place to stay for a few days or longer, close to all of Boulder's amenities. We will definitely be back."
