About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4), wfi, one level

Our lovely 1200 sf garden level apartment located on the East side of Boulder has spectacular views of Boulder and the Rocky Mountain Continental divide. Our totally separate apartment (not shared with anyone) has an open dining, living and full kitchen that bring the outdoors in, are a compliment to the large bedrooms. No stairs at the entry, a one level layout and wide doorways lend itself to being wheelchair accessible, but counter/sink heights are not ADA compliant. It is totally private with its own entrance, off street parking, heating, AC system, Wifi, phone, full size laundry, BBQ, outside table/chairs with view of Boulder and the Rockies.

We have lived in Colorado most of our lives and are very willing to share with you information on points of interest in and around Boulder and Colorado. We are avid hikers, down-hill and back country skiers and cyclists. We have 3 bikes & helmets to loan so that the 300 miles of Boulder bicycle lanes and multi-use paths are available to enjoy. Walking the foothills and prairie opens views to birds, evergreen trees or rock climbers.

find dry, world class snow at ski areas within 45 minutes to 1.25 hours drive from Boulder.

About The Owner

Reed is a retired electrical and telecommunications engineer and businessman with degrees in both. Carol is a retired Speech Therapist, Language Arts & Learning Disability teacher.

We are actively engaged with a combined family (5 children, 5 grand children, 4 great grandchildren), friends, bicycling, downhill & backcountry skiing, hiking, chorale singing, dancing, traveling...…and life in general. We are both graduates of the University of Colorado in Boulder.

Why The Owner chose Ridglea Hills

We designed our house and included an apartment for our parents to live in when they needed assisted living.

What makes this apartment unique

We are warm and friendly and have lived in Boulder for 35 years and have a wealth of information about Boulder and Colorado that we are more than willing to share with you. Having three loaner bikes for those who enjoy the wind in their hair is indeed serendipitous.

Comfortable, convenient, charming.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for us for two weeks building up to Christmas. Every convenience was provided by Carol and Reed. Winter light and views of the mountains from the spacious living room are awesome. We’re coming back when the garden is blooming and the fish pond isn’t frozen over!

Spacious, Comfortable Apartment; Close To Everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our needs. Reed and Carol are gracious hosts. After initial introductions, they left us to have our privacy. The apartment is beautiful with all that you need. Easy to find. Minutes from CU and several fine restaurants. Shopping is close by. Ample parking.

Thank you, Reed and Carol!

Really A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The picture makes it seem as if the garden level apartment is one of several apartments, but it isn't; it's part of a very big home and was probably used to house a favorite relative, perhaps elderly, at one time. The best thing about this place is its location atop a bluff giving a view of the front range and the Flatirons. Otherwise, it was clean and carefully kept, with real consideration of what the occupant might need.

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5

I simply cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here! The home was spacious, clean, well stocked and comfortable. Reed and Carol were very friendly and informative, and made the whole process seamless (which was important considering that we were flying in late with a toddler!) The one question I had about how to work something was answered immediately. The home is centrally located to all of the great things that Boulder and the surrounding areas have to offer. It literally had everything we needed to enjoy our trip. We felt that the pictures did not do the home justice, and it felt much bigger, and even nicer, in person. The view was breathtaking, and the home is very kid friendly. We will definitely be back next year!

Beautiful views and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and well-stocked with many of the comforts of home. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood with many beautiful homes. There is privacy, but the owners Reed & Carol are friendly and available to help if needed. There is a beautiful view of the mountains from the sofa in the living room. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Boulder. Thanks to Reed & Carol for making this lovely apartment available to rent.

Colorado Garden Comfort retreat.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the garden apartment . It was very clean and bright with a lot of windows. We would stay and would love to visit Colorado again. Colorado is Majestic.

The only thing I would change in the apartment would be to take out the carpet in the bathroom, I get concerned about mold. But otherwise it was very clean and cozy.

Thank you for letting us stay at your place we really got to relax here after a full day of Colorado exploring. Thanks again , God Bless you both! Sean and Colleen Sullivan :0)
