Everyone loves the location, 1/2 block from the mountain trails, tucked away but a short walk to downtown Pearl Street mall, restaurants, CU campus, Chatauqua, Boulder Creek path & other trails. Perfect for CU graduation, the Conference on World Affairs and anything else in town or on the CU campus.
This unique open-floor plan remodeled Victorian home, designed by the current owner, an artist and graphic designer, was featured on Home & Garden TV and in a colorful coffee table book entitled, "Vintage and Artistic Homes of Boulder." The living room, front sun room and open dining area have high ceilings and hardwood red oak floors. Sun room has a desk and floor lamp for working.
For those who play piano, there is a spinet in the sun room, and in the living room a red enamel gas stove for rosy winter afterglow. The elegant style throughout the house seamlessly integrates charming Victorian details with contemporary fixtures and an open feeling of space and comfort. There is art on the walls and plexiglass pedestals with sculpture.
The two bedrooms are modest and Victorian in size but have a full bathroom with a whirlpool tub and access from both bedrooms. Sleeping accommodations for the second bedroom is a sofa sleeper with a comfy, super plush 2" Tempur-pedic topper. Please see the photos to be sure that this arrangement works for you.
There are two sinks in the kitchen, one in the center island, and a brand new gas range. There are two sinks in the kitchen, one in the center island, and a brand new gas range. Dining table pulls out to seat 10 and there are dishes, table cloth and service for a party of that size.
Double French doors lead out to the 2-level, wooden back deck, which has a gas barbecue, deck furniture, a long quartz counter top and is surrounded by trees (green and lush in summer, snow covered and a picture-postcard wonderland at Christmas time.)

You're invited to enjoy the whole house, washer & dryer and back deck with barbecue. Owner's quarters on the top floor have an entrance around the side.
When inquiring about a stay in my house, I'd love to know why you are coming to Boulder (I may be able to help with suggestions) and how many people will be in your group (the configuration). Makes communication faster and easier. (I have an Aerobed ($15 per night) that can be set up in the gallery between the main bedroom and the kitchen, though it is an area with no door to close for privacy.
I've been asked why I don't have reviews here and the answer is simply that I have many, many glowing reviews, 5 stars in every category on the other major vacation listing site. I fact, I have SuperHost status. But I am new to VRBO. Here are a few from the other site:

A beautiful sacred space, special that Tina shares this with folks looking for a Boulder retreat.

Great location and comfortable surroundings. The home was well stocked with everything we needed. We even made a Turkey dinner on Christmas day and had everything we needed!

As my wife said " weeks surrounded by beauty." It's a wonderful home. I couldn't imagine a better location - quiet street, close to the hiking trails and Pearl. Just a few blocks from Alfalfa's (a great grocery store). And, Tina is a wonderful host - easy to work with, very helpful and keeps the house stocked with lots of good stuff. We had a great time!!

A uniquely beautiful home with a perfect location and wonderful outdoor space!! Nestled on the hill, the home is a short walk to all the restaurants and shops on Pearl Street. Tina is so kind, communicative and helpful with anything you'll need. I'd love the opportunity to stay here again!

Tina is an excellent host. She's great with communication and did many of the little things that a host can do to make sure your stay is great. Tina's home is truly spectacular. The pictures do not do it justice. It is filled with a variety of creative artwork and exudes Victorian character. I strongly recommend Tina's place to all visitors.

This place may be one of the best kept secrets in town…a unique Victorian experience on a quiet tree lined street right in the heart of Boulder! It was like coming home to a fascinating art gallery every afternoon after exploring this charming town. It’s a short walk from just about everything you want to see. I arranged the house for my relatives when they came to visit me from India. They were blown away. It was exactly as described, wonderfully decorated and meticulously clean. We felt like we were the first guests to ever stay even a nick on the walls or errant dust on floor. Tina was a gracious host, meeting me and my relatives when they arrived and she was very responsive to any questions we had during the stay. A wonderful time was had by all. We highly recommend a stay here!
Response from Tina:
You guys were terrific. You're always welcome back. T.

What a beautiful home! Light and roomy and full of art. It’s just a lovely 10 minute walk over the Boulder Creek bridge to the Pearl Street Mall, which is the heart of Boulder and has many great shops and restaurants. (Check out The Peppercorn, the best kitchen gadget & gear store I found anywhere.) Just a half block from fabulous hiking trails up into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. A well appointed kitchen made making Thanksgiving dinner a breeze. The spacious back deck was great for lounging. Since it’s also just a few blocks from the CU campus, it was an easy walk for my niece and nephew. Perfect location. A warm and inviting place to gather with family. (I was happy to have the washer and dryer - so convenient.)
Looking forward to hearing from you. Tina
