About The Owner

I moved to Boulder in 1982 for my first job out of engineering school. I moved into an apartment in an old victorian and my next door neighbor in that apartment is now my wife of 31 years! We purchased the house on Spruce when we married in 1985. It is our primary residence and we enjoy our time living here when it is not rented out.

The Owner purchased this house in 1985

Why The Owner chose Boulder

In 1984 my wife and I bicycled across America. We lived in Boulder at the time and realized after touring the country that Boulder is very special. I have been a nordic ski racer for 38 years. We share a love of cycling and I still love to run the trails close by. Boulder provides the perfect mix of proximity to great outdoor adventure and yet has all the amenities and diversity of a college town. It is not too big and not too small. The city planners had the forethought to purchase open space and keep a greenbelt on the edges of town. Enjoy Boulder,

I know we do!

What makes this house unique

Skiing - Head to Eldora for the day its only 30 minutes up the canyon.

Hiking - Choose Mt. Sanitas or the trails beneath Flagstaff mountain. Lunch at Chautauqua is the best!

Rock Climbing - The third flatiron is a classic climb that can be done by a novice with the help of an experienced guide.

Swimming - Just a few blocks down and you are at Spruce pool

Boating - Rentals are available at Boulder Reservoir

Shopping - The house is close to Pearl Street Mall and 29th Street for an abundance of shops

Theater - Boulder Dinner Theater is a great place to take in a play and a meal

Great location for a week in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

A colleague and I were in town for a week long training and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house was beautiful -- well maintained, comfortable, with all the amenities we needed. The location was perfect -- easy walking distance to all the great shopping and eating on Pearl Street and nearby. Having your own off-street parking was valuable and we loved sitting outside on the porch swing. It was a great place for a summer trip to Boulder. Thanks!

Good location

  • 3 of 5

This property was in a good location-close to Pearl Street and the bus station. The owner was easily accessible by phone and replaced the nonfunctioning coffeemaker within a reasonable amount of time. She added a bag of coffee for the inconvenience.

A-1 location, comfortable beds, excellent

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location right by Pearl Street. Quiet residential neighborhood, yet close walking distance to everything. Having a driveway for parking is great also. Only one shower on the main level. Overall, very satisfied with the rental.

Auburn, MI

Quiet residential neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and was exactly what we expected from the website. It is close to Pearl street and walking the neighborhoods was a treat. It is a bit of a walk to the trails but easy to drive. Being from Michigan we would have liked to be able to open the windows for fresh air, but instead enjoyed sitting on the porch. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay here in Boulder.

Great location and house!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I really enjoyed our stay in Boulder and the house was great. We stayed 4 nights and walked everywhere we needed to. Pearl Street was our primary hangout - Snooze Cafe and West Flanders were our favorites. Would recommend this rental if you want a nice home within walking distance to so many great shops and restaurants.

Great location, and a nicely rehabbed home

  • 3 of 5

I rented this house with a colleague for a short business trip. The location was perfect - close to Pearl Street, close to our offices. The house was on a quiet street, with lots of lovely updates - beautiful kitchen, comfortable beds, one and a half nice bathrooms.

There were a couple of oddities about the house that lose it a couple of stars. First, many of the electrical outlets (and there were many, many outlets) didn't work, making it hard to charge devices or use laptops at the dining room table. Second, there was a fairly strong odor of something animal-related - catbox? - though there was no sign of pets in the house. It's possible the odor came from the second floor of the house (the rental is just the first floor). It wasn't overwhelming, but it wasn't pleasant either.

I'd probably rent the house again, but I might bring a power strip, and a can of Febreze!
