About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths

License #RHL2011-00197

Welcome to our upscale, executive, downtown Boulder rental. Our quiet, 2nd floor, one-level loft is tastefully decorated and furnished with a modern vibe and wood floors throughout (newer carpet in the master bedroom). The open design gives the 1185 square feet an extremely spacious feel. The floor to ceiling windows give you a beautiful view of the Flatirons and Pearl Street. For outdoor space, enjoy the communal courtyard (shared with just 6 other units) or the private balcony with swivel chairs and bistro table looking onto the mountains and downtown Boulder.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed with a view of the quiet courtyard, black out blind and loads of storage in the large California Closet. The master bath has a deep soaking tub, shower, toilet and spacious vanity. The second bedroom faces Pearl Street and the Flatirons, has a queen bed, black out blind, its own small closet and an en suite bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. The bedroom is separated from the living area by a large, glass and metal sliding door (NY City loft style). Despite facing Pearl Street, it is very quiet and guests report great nights sleep.

The open living room with a wall of windows offering spectacular views of the Flatirons, has a Room & Board queen sleeper sofa and another sofa for lounging and entertaining guests. There is a large dedicated work/desk area with filing cabinet, drawers and book shelves (and of course WiFi).

The kitchen offers a 4-seat bar top (higher and separate from the counter top) which works well for a second work space if needed. In addition there is a 6-8 person dining table for dinner parties. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the gadgets and utensils you will need including Calphalon Contemporary pans, a crock pot, blender, mixer, etc.

Our secure 2nd story loft is quiet -- no one above you and the whole building is only 8 units. We have a dedicated covered (carport) off-street parking spot for one car, an elevator to help with luggage and a stackable washer and dryer. Have a lot of stuff and sports equipment? No problem as we have a large hall California Closet offering a load of storage (this is in addition to the large walk-in master closet and small closet for 2nd bedroom). Just across the street, you can rent a bike for $8/day or $11/month from Boulder B Cycle (an automated system).

We have a land line phone, central air conditioning and heating, high speed internet and WiFI and a high end Xfinity entertainment package that includes HBO, Showtime, etc. on the 2 flatscreen tvs (one in the living room and one in the master bedroom). The entertainment system is also equipped with a DVR so you can record you favorite programs.

Most of our guest are either relocating to the area, on temporary corporate or academic assignment, training for elite bike/foot races or visiting the grandkids for an extended time.

We offer one of the most convenient and newly equipped corporate/furnished housing options in Boulder. All dishes, cutlery, towels, linens, duvets, duvet covers and mattress pads are included. You just need to bring your clothes and toiletries.

The view of the Flatirons as well as the close proximity to bus lines and the Pearl St. Mall make it an ideal place to relax and work in Boulder. Our loft offers a great deal of privacy since we do not live on-site but yet I am 5 minutes away so can help with any issues very quickly. I hope you'll consider staying with us!

About Laura Ghayur

My husband, two kids and I have lived in Boulder since 2007 and we love it! Having hailed from Michigan and Pakistan and then living in many places including Paris, London, Washington, Abu Dhabi and Princeton - we hope to stay put in this beautiful, healthful, friendly place.

Laura Ghayur purchased this condo in 2010

Why Laura Ghayur chose Whittier

We first lived in the loft as renters when we moved from NJ to Boulder. We chose to rent it because it was 1/2 block from our beloved elementary school Whittier International and such a light-filled, open and happy space. A couple years later after having become friendly with other owners in the complex, we found that the loft was coming up for sale. We decided to buy it both for rental income and for a place for my parents for extended visits to Boulder.

What makes this condo unique

We love to walk on Pearl Street to restaurants, cafes and shops or hop on our bikes to the creek path. The loft itself is great for entertaining with its open space and hip, groovy feel. It's only rarely available for us to use now but we jump at the chance for a date night away from the kiddos or a girls night in.

Guestbook comments from the manager

February 2016

We love the loft Laura and after three visits, feel like this is our second home!

Later this year, when we have our dates for next year, we will certainly check your availability and keep our fingers crossed!

Thank you Laura for always being so warm and welcoming and providing a home away from home!

Best Wishes

High Stylin’ City Living

  • 5 of 5

Returning to Boulder after having lived there for 35+ years was a treat when enjoyed from this beautiful unit. The fun of walking out the door and on to the coffee shops, cultural events, grocery stores or my office was unexpected. If you’d like to experience Boulder as the small town it actually is, in an apartment with comfort, views and all the amenties you could need, look no further. Floor-to-ceiling windows brings the Flatirons right into your home and Laura’s responsiveness and goal to make your stay as enjoyable as possible will create a most memorable visit. All the particulars are within the listing, but the quiet, the convenience of a downtown parking spot and the fun of just hitting the streets is something that can’t be captured - you just have to experience it for yourself! I look forward to staying here again next winter. Thank you, Laura!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review Debi. I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in March for another month. As a serious cook, I'm glad you found the kitchen well stocked and suited to cooking for a large crowd. I appreciated the feedback on upgrading a couple of things to make large dinner parties a bit easier and I will make sure to have those in place prior to your next visit. Take care and see you soon!

A fantastic location and stay

A fantastic stay and experience. Laura communicated quickly and made everything easy. The condo is fully equipped, bright, spacious, clean and comfortable. You can't beat the location. There are dozens of restaurants & shops within a short walk. I would happily book another stay.

Amazing Apartment In Heart Of Boulder

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places I've ever stayed! The apartment is beautiful and wonderfully located right in the heart of Boulder. Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable, the loft offers a warm and luxurious stay with gorgeous views of the flatirons. The loft is inside a quiet and safe building perfect for relaxing and/or working.

Laura is a delight to work with and accommodating to every need. Highly recommended!

Perfect spot for a long or short stay in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

This sunny spacious 2 bedroom loft apartment has been our location of choice for several long stays in Boulder. We have been visiting Boulder for many years and have found nothing that comes close to it. Winter or summer, the views of the Flatirons from the sun filled breakfast area and lounge are stunning. The apartment is elegantly furnished and equipped to the very highest standards. The kitchen would suit a master chef. Cable TV and wifi of course together with comfortable living and dining areas make the apartment perfect for staying in or entertaining. Its location is also ideal, only a couple of blocks from the Pearl Street Mall to the west with its funky cafes and bars or the 29th St shopping area to the east. Both are within a few minutes walk. Our landlady Laura couldn’t be more accommodating and helpful. Definitely 5 stars in our book!

Owner's Response: It's such a pleasure to continue to welcome you and Margaret back to the loft each year (has it been 6 years in a row already?!) I'm thrilled you continue to find it a welcoming, comfortable and convenient location to work and play in Boulder and the mountains. I look forward to your next visit in January 2018! See you soon.

Best summer in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

This was the best (of 3) summer rentals we have had in Boulder: best equipped, nicely located, most elegant, and easiest place to feel at home. There is often a "yuck factor" in a rental kitchen, but the high end stainless cookware meant I did not go out to buy foil pans. Laura was responsive to our every need, and we found more than enough linens, towels, dishes, soap, detergent--you name it. Access to Pearl Street Mall, public transportation, hiking, and all that Boulder has to offer was right at our doorstep. The three summer "experiments" (and grandchildren in the area) have convinced us to relocate to the area. Take a free bus to Chautauqua on the weekend, or bus to CU for Shakespeare festival, and walk back (walking back is downhill); walk to the farmers market on the weekend or Wednesday, or venture farther. We are eagerly anticipating our return.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Carol! We loved having you at the loft and so glad you enjoyed your stay. I wish you the best of luck in your move to the area and so glad you get to enjoy those grandchildren more often. Let us know if you have friends or family who need a month-long visit on Pearl Street.

Wonderful Loft--Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 months here and loved every minute. Very comfortable, perfect location with ability to walk almost every where, bright natural sunlight, wonderful view of mountains, safe/secure and covered parking with designated space. Laura could not have been more responsive and the loft is more than fully equipped. Highly recommend!
