About CarolAnn

This is my home, I raised my son here. I am an Executive Search Consultant and recently launched a career/job board, CareerMeetingplace. I am also a professional photographer and closet torch singer.

CarolAnn purchased this house in 2003

Why CarolAnn chose Mapleton Hill

We love Boulder, our location is ideal, our home is a few blocks from the best restaurants in town, swimming pool, hiking trails, rock climbing, kayaking and recreational centers. Boulder is a town, but offers the benefits of a big city, excellent restaurants and bars, shopping, art galleries, all within walking distance!

Boulder offers rafting, biking, hiking, the open space is a priority to our wonderful city!

What makes this house unique

Huge Backyard, Outdoor Living, Flagstone Patio, Outdoor Furniture, ClawFoot BathTub, natural gas Grill & 50" Flat Screen TV

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect for family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family spent the entire week together at this home in March, and it was perfect for our needs. The location of this home is perfect. Set in a quiet family neighborhood within walking distance to the excitement of Pearl Street, we did all of our traveling in town by foot. Another highlight of this rental is the enormous backyard, which offered a ton of space for lawn games and grilling out. Being that the weather was great, we spent much of our time in the back yard lounging around, playing bocce ball, and throwing the frizbee... the pictures don't even do this yard justice, it's HUGE! The beds were very comfortable and the large dining area was a great place for us all to gather and eat meals together.

As far as Boulder itself, what a great place for a family vacation. Many restaurants and bars within blocks and so many great places to hike and explore the mountains within 30 minutes.

This is a great rental for families and travelers looking to experience Boulder like they actual live in the community rather than just visiting.

Overall - a good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This home is in a wonderful, historical neighborhood ideally located near the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder. It is spacious and light! The owner is readily available and works hard to make sure one's stay is satisfying. While the furnishings are minimal, they are sufficient. It would be helpful if dish towels were provided (or paper towels) and additional bath towels - and if there were more lighting in the kitchen for nighttime work. There are ample glasses, dishes and

silverware and all in excellent condition. The backyard is enormous; we were there in the winter so didn't use it, but a group or family renting this home in the spring, summer, fall would delight in it! The off-street parking is very helpful.

The channels available on the TV are few - though the owner did increase the number for us - so this is perhaps not the rental for vacation television watchers.

We came in January to do some touring of colleges and it was a great place for our family to stay. The owner was very easy to reach as well.

Perfect location to Boulder's Pearl St. area. Lots of windows and light with a great back yard

  • 4 of 5

House was clean and charming. Carolanne was helpful and available throughout my experience with VRBO. I shared the house with my family - including my 2 grandchildren both under 6. The backyard allowed them to play in full view from the inside. So much better than any hotel stay! The convenience of a fully furnished home made our trip so much more relaxing than being cramped up in any hotel. Thank you Carolanne! I'd love to stay again.

Quaint house and centrally located.

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful property. Very cute house. There were 6 of us staying in the house. While there were adequate rooms, there is no storage in bathrooms and only one bedroom had some closet space. We found the living room a bit cramped. Large flat screen TV, but no HD. But kitchen and dining room were spacious. Huge back yard and outdoor seating area. Great family time over Thanksgiving. Many things to do in the area.
