Property description

We have a beautiful home for you to rent, just minutes from CU & Downtown. It's private and quiet, with incredible views of the front range & Boulder.

It has a very open floor plan, with 2 bedrooms and a loft upstairs, and 5 bedrooms downstairs (separate booking required). We can accommodate large groups - but can have no more than 3 unrelated people (per City of Boulder code).

There is a collection of art from around the world, including paintings from Brazil and Cuba, rugs and armoire from Morocco. The kitchen has an array of utensils, appliances and cooking tools, and the cupboards are generally stocked with most basic food. Fully furnished, with tasteful touches like granite counters, slate & travertine flooring; walnut trim; a huge deck & hot tub.

Best of all is the view. Huge picture windows and a huge deck open out to a view of the front range from Boulder to Lyons. Toward the back you can see the famous Flatirons of Boulder. The deck features a hot tub, grill, Apricot tree and unique hand carved king size bed from Bali. There's not a better view or location in Boulder. There are no cars or people walking by. The bedding is first class- the best mattresses, goose down comforters, and good cotton sheets. Sheets may be wrinkly because we line dry- but they are clean & environmentally correct! Heating is baseboard hot water, for clean, healthy, quiet heat. In summer we have evaporative cooling which is effective and healthy.

I usually live here, but am often out of town or out of the country. I have an eco-lodge in Africa (amongst other things) so am often gone. The house is fully licensed with the City of Boulder, and is zoned for no more than 3 unrelated people- so is perfect for a few couples, or any size family. Prices here are for the upstairs only- the lower floor is available for rent also, (add $400) - so the entire space is perfect for a large family reunion.

The City of Boulder requires a statement of maximum occupancy- we are not allowed to , and so will not allow more than 3 unrelated guests. We can have more than 3 guests if they are related. We can sleep at least 7
