Trimble Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this house. 16 of us stayed in the house and it was perfect for all of us. The house was the perfect size and a great location for all of the attractions we wanted to see. Joanne was awesome to work with and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend this house for large families or a large group. We can't wait to plan our next trip to Colorado and will be staying here.

Manitou Marvel

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely! Seeing families of deer drinking from the Koi pond and bucks walking past the back deck was an experience! The family wants to head back to the house again when we have more time to enjoy it at a more relaxed pace! Thanks again for everything!

USAFA Graduation 2016

  • 4 of 5

This property fit our needs perfectly! Enough room for everyone...16 on a few evenings. The dining table was great, as we cooked & ate dinner at the house (huge budget saver!) The views are breath-taking & the wildlife is abundant.

It is very convenient for all the USAFA graduation events. The owners are very attentive to the needs of the guests. We had a great time and couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy our family time.

USAFA Graduation Week

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent week at Manitou Villa celebrating our daughter's graduation from USAFA. We had 16 people there for the week and there was plenty of room for everyone. We also hosted a party for about 50 people and it was wonderful. It was so much better than a hotel for us to all enjoy being together and for the party. The views from this home are spectacular and the folks at the guard house coming into the property were nice and accomodating.

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

This house is spectacular and you will feel at home the minute you've completed unpacking. Great master bedroom, kitchen and living areas. But what really made my stay was the owners... The woman who owns and manages this house could not have been any kinder or more gracious... She would bring toys for my 3 year old son and would come up and get my family while I was working and take them into town. The only complaint I could ever make about my stay here was having to leave... I look forward to coming here again.... PS she has other houses, some in town... Get in touch and she will have what you need...

Owner's Response: A wonderful family who stayed for an extended period of time. I enjoyed getting to know them. It was fun spending time with the wife and son, especially when my grandchildren were able to join us. I look forward to their return visit.

Wonderful Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Manitou Villa! Our children and grandchildren were very much impressed by this wonderful property, the view from each balcony, and the many amenities within the home that kept us all entertained. Each day we enjoyed a close-up view of nature with deer appearing near the front lawn pond and blue birds perching on nearby trees--the panoramic view from the windows were spectacular. There was more than ample room for our party of 16 whether it was for sleeping accommodations or eating areas. The location of this property was very convenient for us--it was very near the Garden of the Gods and the Cliff Dwellers which we thoroughly enjoyed visiting . Our children and grandchildren also participated at the Spartan Race in Fort Carson and it was very convenient for us to get to that event via the freeway without a hitch. We want to thank the property owner for her graciousness and helpfulness. She made us feel welcomed and was available whenever we had any questions, giving us recommendations on activities, restaurants, etc. She even brought over extra outdoor play equipment for the children to play on--they had fun playing on them while we barbequed on the back porch area. We would recommend this property to our family and friends.
