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

Great house, nice location.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect. Only flaw is you have to go through bedroom to the only shower. Two couples, only stayed two nights, so not a big issue. Would recommend and stay again.

Best location in town

  • 5 of 5

The location was better than expected. You can't go wrong with Boulder, but finding this place really was the icing on the cake. We had a car because we took day trips and split our vacation between Boulder and Denver, but it was closer to Pearl St than imagined. No more than two blocks. The down side is the one full bathroom is the master ensuite so everyone had to share the shower from there. We were already expecting that so wasn't a problem. The only real issue was it is the first floor of a two story house and the renters above were very loud the first night. With that said, I did text the owner at 11pm and received a prompt response that he had contacted them and they responded. We did have to go up and ask them once more but after that it was better and the second night was good as well. The owners are very responsive and when we arrived back from breakfast the next morning they were waiting for us to check in and apologize. We would definitely rent this unit again.

I loved it! Peaceful but close to town.

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a wonderful historic section of Boulder within walking distance of restaurants and shops. And you have a view of the mountains from the front porch. The house itself was great! Well appointed, comfortable and clean. I would stay there again.

Location fabulous.

Homeowner very receptive.

Everything worked well.

Central air worked and is a must in Boulder in the summer.

Building and yard need some revitalization

If you don't care about the exterior appearance....

  • 3 of 5

The exterior of the house, the porch, and the yard were not cared for. I was attending a wedding and was embarrassed to ask friends to drop by because of the peeling paint, dirt, weeds, dead grass. But, if that doesn't bother you, you may find your stay acceptable otherwise. Inside, the kitchen and baths are nicely updated. The beds, decent. The location is very convenient to lively Pearl Street. There was a strong smell in the closed house but that eventually dissipated.
