"We use VRBO for our travels whenever possible. Owners and homes vary across the board. We've never had a bad experience. This home in Boulder turned out to be perfect for our needs of the week. Like a couple of others whose reviews are listed, we needed a "grand central" spot during our daughter's wedding week--a place where friends and relatives could drop in for coffee or a glass of wine.
The first thing we heard from every visitor was: "Wow!" The home is beautifully built, very well appointed, and first class. The entry is awesome. An uncle from Boston suggested we all buy it to have a place to stay in Boulder. The seating and beds throughout worked perfectly for our handful of nightly guests and for those who visited. There's ample--more than ample room, closets, bathrooms, storage, you name it. Plenty of towels, but plan a trip to replenish paper supplies, etc.
The kitchen was perfect as a common gathering place, as was the outdoor deck, the front room, and everywhere else. My husband cooked for the rehearsal dinner, and had plenty of space, platters, and great appliances. The nice part was all of the nooks in which people could sit and visit, take a nap, or read a book. And when we closed the door to the master, we enjoyed a quiet, private oasis.
We tend to be very picky. In a home where no one is currently living, like many VRBO homes we use, sometimes the little things need attention. The owner was very responsive to our questions about the house during the week, and during our rental conversations in advance. Even the contractors remodeling two houses next door were quiet, respectful, and kept their "noise" to few daytime hours. We weren't disturbed at all. I highly recommend this home if you need a central, large location in Boulder. This home is worth the money, worked well, and we were very happy with our choice."
