Why marcia de Jong chose Northeast Colorado Springs

We’ve lived in Colorado Springs for 12 years and love the easy access to the outdoors. The sight of the mountains everywhere you turn is breathtaking. Colorado Springs is such a beautiful inexpensive place for families to enjoy a vacation. As a family of diverse cultures who have traveled extensively. We have always appreciated finding a homey vacation home to start the day and return to after a fun filled day of exploring. We want to share to joys of spending time together with other families.

What makes this house unique

Our property is located in central Colorado Springs with easy access to the main highway. Most of Colorado Spring attractions are within a 5 to 30 minutes drive. There are 2 parks within walking distance one with an outdoor pool and water slide, tennis courts and bike path. Your family can enjoy the sights of Colorado Springs or take a day trip to the lovely mountain destinations of Vail, Breckenridge, and our other mountain destination.

No bad surprises

  • 5 of 5

Our family celebrated a memorial service for my father in Colorado Springs. We had extended family of 14 stay at the house. The home is spacious and the bedrooms are down a hallway so those who chose to stay up late and socialize did not disturb those sleeping. There are 3 bedrooms on the first level and 3 in the basement. There is also a living room and spot to dine in the basement so we had all the younger folk stay down stairs.The property was private and there was plenty of seating on the back patio though the yard could benefit from some landscaping. And since most of our gang were single people then twin beds instead of queens would of worked better for us but we used a couple blow up beds in the living rooms. There are a few mechanical quirks such as limited sockets in the basement bathroom and air conditioner running too cold downstairs as compared to upstairs but not enough of a problem to ruin a stay. The photos do justice to the home. It is clean and the location was good access to activities.The neighborhood was peaceful. We are grateful to the owner for allowing us the opportunity to stay together as a large group.We would stay again if we return to Colorado Springs.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to provide some feedback. We have been fighting the Colorado drought for the last few years with laying sod yearly but Mother Nature keeps winning.

What a great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Simple Comfort. The master bed in particular was very comfortable, and the home had all the amenities one could need. The location is walking distance to University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, and within easy driving distance to grocery stores. Simple Comfort served as a great base for sightseeing around Cheyenne Mountain, Pikes Peak, and Garden of the Gods.

Not up to par

  • 1 of 5

The outside of the house was being remodeled during our stay so from the outside not very nice however the inside was spacious. The appliances were outdated. The icemaker did not work. The dishwasher had a horrible smell. Not a big deal. However, this house is close to the college and the neighbors like to party. So much so that there were gun shots. I would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: We deeply regret this guest had such a horrible experience on their last night stay. I would like to apologize again for this incident. We would like our future guest to know that the gun shots were a drunken party goer firing in the air not at someone. The person was arrested and charged and the tenant was evicted. I would also like to assure our future tenants that we have never had such an event occur in the 10 years we have been part of vrbo. This home is monitored with cameras and has a security system in place. We were aware that the ice and water were not working on the fridge and have supplied bagged ice and water for the use of our guest while the repair company obtains the necessary part. I would encourage our future guest to please call us if something is not working during your stay to give us the chance to rectify the situation. We take pride in trying to maintain our property while not disturbing our clients so no work on the exterior is to be done while the home is occupied. We have been working around our guest stay to get the project completed. Standing water was found in the dishwasher possibly from an interrupted cycle as no other issues, nor odors could be found by the repair person once a complete cycle was ran.
