About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful, contemporary home right in the heart of Downtown Boulder. Located across the street from the Boulderado Hotel, and just a block and a half off of the Pearl Street walking mall, this charming 4-bedroom house offers the best of Boulder right at your doorstep. You can experience the location and lifestyle of the best hotels in town, but in your own 4-bedroom house!

Wake up to a morning hike along sun-soaked Sanitas Valley trail, followed by coffee and shopping on Pearl Street Mall. After a lazy afternoon lounging in your beautiful downtown home you’re ready for a bike ride around town and dinner at a world-class restaurant. Welcome to life at your own Downtown Boulder vacation home!

The house has been outfitted with contemporary furnishings throughout, and features stunning original artwork by local artists. The property has 4 bedrooms (1 King, 2 Queens, and a bedroom with a Full and Twin bed) and 2 full bathrooms, dining room with large family table, living room, full kitchen, family/tv room, mud room with washer and dryer, and additional upstairs bar area.

For outdoor living year-round, the property has a fabulous front porch with porch swing for morning coffee, large landscaped backyard with secluded big patio area for dining and playing outdoors, and additional balcony upstairs for evening cocktails. It doesn't get any better than the outdoor lifestyle available right downtown!

The house and fully-enclosed large back yard are also very kid friendly for your next family vacation. Off-street parking is available at the property (a rarity downtown!) and for the eco-conscious there are bikes rentals within a few blocks. The location is so central you can walk or bike to everything.

We look forward to welcoming you and your guests/family to your home away from home in Downtown Boulder!

About The Owner

We converted this charming 1890's craftsman bungalow into a gorgeous single-family home in 2002. Our collection of original artwork and contemporary decor adds an upscale feel to the house's original details. We have lived in Boulder for 15 years, and as local experts we look forward to helping you craft your ultimate Boulder vacation! For each visit to the property, we provide area highlights, ideas, maps and more. Tell us a little about your vacation before you come out (what kind of trip: kids, romantic, adventure), and we'll tailor the property to fit your needs.

The Owner purchased this house in 1997

Why The Owner chose Boulder

This property is simply the best location to access all that Boulder has to offer! It's right downtown, just 1.5 blocks off Pearl St walking mall, and easy walks to trail heads, CU campus, Boulder Creek trail, local markets and more. And more than just a great location, the house is absolutely beautiful, with big, comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces.

What makes this house unique

This house is truly one of the most charming houses I've experienced. In remodeling the house, we kept all the original details, including original built-ins, cabinets and claw-foot tub, but we've added our own style of casual contemporary furnishings and modern art. The house feels both timeless and fresh. This property also features incredible outdoor living, with plush front porch, enclosed large landscaped back yard and patio, and additional upstairs balcony.

Perfect house for a Delta Gamma 40 year reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This house on Pine was perfect for a 40 year reunion. We spent many hours sitting and talking on the big front porch, as well as in the great back yard. The house is very roomy, comfortable, and inviting.

Would highly recommend this home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean, and most essential items were supplied by the owner. The location for a stay in Boulder could not be better. Quiet yet a very short walk to Pearl Street(that has everything you would want in shops, pubs, and restaurants). Easy access to the main roads for adventure outside of Boulder. We had 8 family members staying at one portion of our stay and the home gave us plenty of room to relax. Kitchen was mainly used for breakfast and snacks. Very functional kitchen for any meal. The front porch was great! The back yard was large and a BBQ grill was provided. We did not utilize either but shows you everything you need is included. Great to have 2 parking spots off the street. There is restrictions during the day to park in front of the home.

You will enjoy you time in Boulder and be very comfortable stay at this home!!!

My only complaint is the owner did not return my call about needing an additional bath towel, several lights were out, and the upstairs bathroom and bedroom door would not close properly(We managed).

Great house! Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely recommend this house! We had 7 in our group and had plenty of space. Huge front porch, and a nice yard in front and back. Love the décor, and a great location! Only a short walk to Pearl St and conveniently located to many attractions (Eldorado Canyon State Park, NCAR, etc..). It is clean and comfortable. We had a minor issue with the kitchen sink and the owners had a handyman out to fix it right away. They are great!

Rented twice, looking forward to third

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this house twice to get together with old college friends. I don't want to leave a review because I don't want the house to be booked for the next go around. The house is comfortable and spacious. The location is great. My specific group enjoyed sitting on the porch drinking coffee and/or beers and catching up. The property has a nice front porch with a view that faces the sun for warmth. We were able to immediately walk to Pearl St. for food, sometimes to eat out and other times for take out to enjoy back at the house. We also met old friends and their new families at the North Boulder Park and hiked Mt. Sanitas, all very close. Owners usually responded to any email within a week and seemed very nice.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a reunion of six longtime women friends who know each other since childhood. The location is perfect to downtown Boulder shopping, dining and also to spectacular hiking trails. The house is charming, has nice decor and is spacious. We enjoyed gathering on the beautiful front porch, the comfortable living room and the large dining room table for morning coffee, meals and evening talks. The house was stocked with everything we needed. I slept in the cozy and comfortable king size bed in the master bedroom with great closet space, overhead fan and nearby bathroom. The three bedrooms upstairs had a full bath, kitchenette and balcony. We did not get to use the patio, but nice for outdoor meals. It was convenient to have a laundry room with a good washer and dryer. The downstairs bathroom could use a little more lighting. Thanks for making our vacation so much fun while staying in this beautiful house.

Car: not necessary

You simply can't find a better location to take advantage of all Boulder has to offer. The house is steps from the Pearl Street walking mall, filled with eclectic shopping, world-class dining, bars, music venues, kids activities and more. And trailheads for hiking and biking and within easy walking distance as well. Our Downtown Boulder vacation house provides the extraordinary location of Boulder's top hotels, but with the privacy, amenities and comfort of your own 4-bedroom home.
