Why marcia de Jong chose 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.

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 The appliances were outdated.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.

This home was perfect and we really enjoyed it!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Colorado around 630 pm. We didn't have to wait for keys or have to wait to be inspected by the owner on whether or not we met her approval. We didn't even see her because before we arrived she provided the code to the home and provided her number in case their was an issue. When I say that this house was more than we expected and more than enough, my words can't do it any justice! It was well equipped with everything we needed! All of the adults had their own rooms and beds. The children slept on the sofa bed and day bed! Three bathrooms was a plus because it was a group of 13! We cooked breakfast every day and had every pot, pan, and utensil that we needed to make that happen! Our favorite part was the amazing patio equipped with plenty of seating for us to enjoy the amazing breeze and view of the mountains. There were plenty of towels and a washer and dryer to replenish them in case we ran out but we didn't!

Only a few cons but not enough to give this house anything less than a five star rating was that since it was a large group of us, not everyone had a hot shower. We wish that there were televisions in the rooms but hey vacation is not for us to sit around and watch TV! The house had not one but two X Box for the children! They were so happy but there was only one controller and only one downloaded game! We wish there would have been more games and at least one more controller! We ended up going to buy one so it was fine! On the side of the house there is this concrete slab. I am not sure if it belonged to the owner but It would have been nice to have a basketball goal or some type of outdoor equipment for the children but they made due with the puzzles and few toys that were there! The biggest complaint is that it appears that some construction is being done and lots of trash and parts were out in the front yard when we arrived and it made us a bit skeptical. All of the siding had been removed and it didn't look like it did in the picture so until we used the code we weren't even sure if we had the right place. The inside made up for the outside so all is well! Overall we had a great experience! I stayed in the first down stairs bedroom, I loved my bed! The air conditioner would automatically go back to 75 degrees for some reason so we would wake up in the middle of the night warm! Overall a great house, great experience! Thank you for sharing with us! If we come back this is where we will be!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review and feedback. Eureka... I have never thought of using that space as a functional play area..now I will have to put my thinking cap on. I apologize for the missing controller we usually have one for each Xbox. Unfortunately leaving more than that for some reason causes them to grow legs and with all the other intricacies of making sure everything is in place for the next guest things like controllers and smaller equipment go missing until someone points it out. For our future guest just know that a quick phone call will usually be appreciated if something is missing. Thank you for being so understanding and purchasing one to use. The thermostat has programs on it and we invite everyone to reprogram according to their needs and schedule. I will have a look at it on the next change over date. The construction has been a pain. Due to our much appreciated rain here in Colorado and having the work being on the exterior it has been difficult for the contractor to get the stucco completed and enough dry time. I have asked him not to work while there are guest in the house which is making it even more difficult for them to get the whole project completed as the house has been booked. I will take care of making sure the house is clearly marked and give the future guest a heads up regarding the construction. Again thank you so much for taking the time I truly appreciate all feedback on how to improve the small things that make my guest experience just that much better. Sincerely, Marcia

Truly a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This home suited our needs perfectly. There were a couple of hiccups in the beginning but the owner took care of them in less than 30 minutes. We had no issues with the home and would definitely recommend this home to others.
