About Greg Gauthier

We find Boulder the perfect place to raise our two daughters. People are friendly and the lifestyle is healthy. We never tire of walking to Pearl Street to enjoy the amazing eateries, cafes, shops, and terrific happy hours. The walk along Boulder Creek (4 blocks away) is amazing.

When we are not here you might find us staying at a VRBO in Napa or elsewhere. Some of our past times include camping, biking, running, swimming, skiing, hiking, and fly fishing - all of which are easily accessible.

We welcome you to Boulder !

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so pleased with your guest apartment. We had expected to rent a car, but Memorial Day weekend demand changed our plans. This location turned out to be ideal. We could walk 5 blocks on Arapahoe St to Safeway (groceries) and other supplies, or a few blocks north to Pearl St. for food and entertainment. When traffic got congested due to the street fair, we walked easily to all our events. Thank you for providing a very comfortable home away from home.

Very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 January nights in this restful, cute apartment and found it to be very clean and tidy and well appointed. We had some sunny days and the sun filled the living/dining/kitchen area making it very cheery to be in. There was also a very cold day and the heat kept me warm. It was a short walk through the charming neighborhood to local stores and bus stops. I did not have a car so convience was important to me. The owner always responded quickly to a few questions I had both before arriving and during my stay. I will definitely stay there again if I return to Boulder.

Very nice and comfortable garage apartment. Everything you need is here and everything is so nice. Downtown is a quick walk, bus or Uber away. I highly recommend staying here.

Clean, Comfortable, and Well Located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was immaculate. It was also well located (easy and safe walk to Pearl St. Mall), spacious, well equipped, comfortable, and included a free private parking space. This apartment represents tremendous value.

A little gem in the middle of everything

My husband & I had a great stay at this wonderful apartment while visiting our son at CU Boulder. The owners are easy to work with and very responsive. It is very clean and well equipped. We will be back!

Nice clean place right in town!

  • 5 of 5

A very clean place with everything you need for a stay in town. You can walk to downtown and also to a nice hiking path along the river. Even though you are next to the house, it is private. There are college kids living nearby and all around, so the noise level is a little higher at night. However, it was not really a big problem with the air conditioning running at night (quietly) and the windows closed. Expect a cramped bathing area which was built into the sloping roof (it is really just a bath, although you can shower on your knees) not a real problem for us, but might be for an elderly person. We also wish it had a screen on the bedroom to open up in those fantastic Colorado mornings! All in all, it was really a nice, very clean place in which we enjoyed. We would stay again and recommend it.
