Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We were there over the weekend, celebrating my 50th bday. This house was beyond lovely, and had everything we could possibly need. The wonderful owner showed us around prior to our stay, which was extremely helpful. We also loved the surround sound speakers throughout the home. Couldn't have been better! Thank you!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group gathering. Comfortable for our party of 8. Kitchen had great quality kitchenware. Enough areas in and outside for smaller gatherings. Pool table on lower level was fun for all.

We parked our car and walked the rest of the stay. Beautiful neighborhood to walk and enjoy the various architecture. Quick jump over to Chautauqua for hiking. Easy walk to campus as well. Highly recommend

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Six of us from Canada came to Boulder for a football weekend. We've enjoyed extended football weekends in various locations in the U.S. for seven years running. We have high standards for location and accommodation amenities and Kurt and Laura's house exceeded those expectations. The house was spotless with lots of room to spread out and a wonderfully equipped kitchen. The BBQ got a good workout and the outdoor patio areas were superb and well used. The Chautaugua trailhead was just up the street with easy access for early morning workouts. We highly recommend this property. Allan & the gang

Spacious Family Home Close to CU Campus

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious with 3 living areas, and and a pooltable room. We stayed with our extended family and there was plenty of room to spread out. Just be aware that even though there are four bathrooms, there are only 2 showers so you have to allow time for everyone to shower. There is plenaty of hot water and clean towels. Everything was nice, clean and easy to use. The Sonos system throughout the house was nice for playing music.
