Great Views - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place to stay. The owner had fresh flowers there for us and that was really nice. We enjoyed the view and the creek being just a few steps away. There are a number of stairs to get to the front door but worth it. The place was clean and we had everything we needed. LOVED the location being so close to the Pearl Street Mall. We will definitely stay here gain.

October Stay

  • 4 of 5

Home was nice and clean and great location just outside the "city life" of Boulder. The negative to this property is that to access the property you have to go up 65 steps (steep and not real safe when carrying luggage, etc.. up and down.). The photos never show the steps and I don't believe this was mentioned in the description. This should be very well made aware before someone rents just in case they are not capable in going up the numerous amount of steps. Great view from the front of the property and appreciated the fresh flowers and water. Parking is tight if you have two cars.

Great views from the balconies. Right across the street a beautiful park area and walking/hiking/biking trails. Close to everything. Fresh flowers upon arrival was a nice touch. A little noisy from traffic during the day but did not notice at night while sleeping. The steps were a bit much but after the 3rd day better after getting acclimated to the high altitude. Would stay there again.
