Beautiful family home in lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting and we couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience. We came to Boulder for a family wedding and found the home to be perfectly located for all our activities. We enjoyed the easy access to Chatauqua and to many of the hiking trails. The home itself is large, well maintained, comfortable and immaculately clean. The owners are easy to communicate with and clearly make an effort to see that visitors have a great experience. We look forward to future visits and would definitely choose to rent here again!

Gorgeous Home, Great Location in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in Boulder for our daughter's wedding--7 adults, and 3 children. Kurt and Laura were wonderful hosts. I emailed Kurt before the trip and he was very helpful with info re Boulder and the home. Laura met us at the house and showed us around, answering any questions we had. Their home is beautiful, spacious, and has plenty of natural light. Each bedroom has at least a half bathroom, and there is a shower and the Master Bath has a shower and a large tub. The Master Bedroom is very large and all the beds were quite comfortable. There is a large sitting room off the Master Bedroom, and another one by the downstairs bedroom (plus a pool table!) so we all could spread out and not be on top of each other like we would have been in a hotel. There is even a lovely outside area with tables and chairs and a barbeque. We had plenty of room. It was spotlessly clean, fluffy towels, a big kitchen, etc. Couldn't think of a thing that was lacking. With all the concerns about the wedding preparations, it was such a relief not to have to worry about our lodging. I made major points with my children for finding such a great place to stay. Thanks Kurt and Laura, and if there was space for more stars, I would definitely give them********** We are ready to go back

Wonderful Home And Neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property which greatly enhanced our vacation in Colorado. The location was ideal. It was so close to all there was to see in downtown Boulder while serving as a quiet idyllic sanctuary. It's peaceful air was all the more incredible given the central location. I don't know Boulder well but it's worth noting that it's actually closer to Chautauqua Park then the designated drop off for the Park and Ride to the park. It's nice having such convenient walking access to such a terrific wild,y popular location. The numerous televisions and audio/visual options were great for our 11 year old as was the pool table. The master bedroom and bath were sizable, comfortable and charming. There were multiple outdoor seating areas which begged to be used for both dining and relaxation. We were able to take multiple day trips to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park with no problem yet we were able to benefit from the numerous attractions and restaurants in the Boulder area. We were a group of seven and each of us had plenty of space. Highly recommend!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the property exceeded my expectations. Great location in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood, walking distance to hiking area, and convenient to any part of town. The house was well appointed, kitchen had everything you need and more! Indoor and outdoor dining tables with a nice grille provided dining options. There were six adults in our party and never felt crowded, plenty of room to spread out for privacy as well as spaces for group gatherings. The pool table was a lot of fun! Owners were very friendly and easy to work with. Been to Boulder several times and would highly recommend this property.

Great Home Enabled Wonderful Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Nine family members rented Kurt and Laura’s home for the long Memorial Day weekend of my son’s wedding held at Chautauqua. Being able to share time together in a wonderful home made for an even more memorable weekend. The house is large and easily accommodated us. There are many comfortable places to hang-out in small groups or all together: upstairs TV room, downstairs TV room, pool table room, kitchen, dining room, living room, and a very nice outdoor deck and patio. We used them all, but especially the outdoor space. There are many nice details: Sonos sound system, kitchen with lots of pots/pans and tools (we made use of this), propane barbeque grill, outdoor cooler, gas fireplace in living room. My brother-in-law left his laptop charger in his bedroom. Kurt shipped it to him, without us even asking! We thank Kurt and Laura for making their home available to us for our son’s wedding.

Best Thanksgiving Trip Ever

  • 5 of 5

The biggest challenge my three sisters and I faced when planning a Thanksgiving reunion was to find a large home in Boulder that was conveniently located to my niece's house and close enough to town that we could go out no matter what the weather. Kurt and Laura's beautiful home was the perfect solution! With nine people staying there, we never felt overly crowded. The inviting living room with fireplace was the best place to hang out at night to laugh, annoy each other and share family memories. The house is in a beautiful neighborhood down the street from Chautauqua Park which boasts phenomenal hiking trails to spectacular vistas of the Boulder area. Our stay exceeded our expectations. We all would love to stay there again at a future date. All my sisters agreed "I did good" finding this property!
