About Valerie Jarstad

What I love about Colorado is what I think brings a lot of people here -- it's very laid back, and Denver is just big enough as a city to have culture, restaurants and shopping, but just small enough to be really easy to get around.

I love the mountains -- skiing, hiking, backpacking, mountain and road biking, and am happy to share suggestions about where to go and what to do depending on your interests.

I see no reason to hold 'local's secrets' -- if there is something I can share or help you with to make your stay more enjoyable, I hope I can provide it.

Valerie Jarstad purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Valerie Jarstad chose Highland

This location is literally in the midst of some of the best restaurants, fitness centers, shopping and cultural attactions (Elitch's Six Flags, Ocean Journey Aquarium, and the Museum of Contemporary Art). I also love the fact that it keeps its neighborhood feel.

Lower Highland, the gateway to Coors Field!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our two house dogs once again stayed in Valerie's Lower Highland home away from home so as to attend a Colorado Rockies baseball series.

Once again we were treated well in our reservation and arrival and our stay was extremely enjoyable.

Our activities included morning walks with the dogs along the access to, and in, the walking park that runs along the South Platte River, morning breakfasts at the Gallop Café, afternoon dog walks in the neighborhood, beverages at numerous spots on the way to the ballpark and on the way home, with a special affinity for the Prost Brewing Company in the Lower Highland, and general lounging and taking it easy.

The quiet neighborhood sure beats anything in downtown Denver and it is only a short walk from downtown if you actually need that kind of human interaction. We have found that we do not, except on the morning of our departure when we did sneak in to downtown for a breakfast at Sam's No. 3!

Thank you Valerie!

Owner's Response: I feel very fortunate to have a number of repeat guests, and I love it when visitors really take advantage of LolaPlace as a home base for exploring the neighborhood. Tom and his wife do just that when they come to Denver and I always love having them!

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a fun trip! This was a very nice townhouse perfectly located. It was well furnished and clean. Very comfortable, including the beds! The neighborhood was so charming. We walked to get our morning coffee and to dinner. The options of neighborhood restaurants within walking distance was impressive. We look forward to staying here again on our next visit!

Great place to stay!! Nicely decorated and clean. Valerie was also great as she was very helpful with tips on what to do around town. The neighborhood is awesome with all types of dining and bar options - walking distance to Union station, 16th Street Mall and the ball park. Definitely go see a show at Red Rocks!!!

Very Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

The apartment was advertised as having air conditioning; however, it was only available in window units in the two upstairs bedrooms. The unit in the master bedroom worked well, but the unit in the other bedroom did not work well, and we had to keep our door open so cool air could circulate into it. Two fans were available on the main floor, one of which was broken, and the other one was not at all powerful. The front and back doors did not have screens on them, so we could not get any air into the downstairs, and there was only one small window in the kitchen that could open. The bed in the second bedroom upstairs was comprised of a few foam pads on top of a latex mattress. It shouldn't have even be called a bed. Valerie did drop off an air mattress, but the pump was for a car. After we filled the mattress outside, it wouldn't fit up the stairs. Due to the heat in the downstairs, we had to go out for breakfast because cooking would have been too much.

Owner's Response: Believe it or not, nothing is more disappointing to a homeowner/VRBO host than to have someone not enjoy their stay. There are a few items worth clarifying -- the back door has no screen because they are french doors. And one of the fans that seemed to be broken was simply on a timer. As far as the bed goes, that is always difficult because different people like different styles of sleeping, and of course I can't change out a mattress for individual needs, as much as I'd like to. Many of my reviews actually point out how comfortable both the beds are. However at the end of the day I had unhappy guests, and I feel bad that they didn't get an experience to match their expectation. I hope future guests will continue to enjoy the amenities LolaPlace offers, including Aveda products, organic sheets and a fully equipped kitchen with coffee and cooking spices.

Cool condo in great location...

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It is located right in the heart of the Highlands neighborhood of Denver. Given it's location you are walking distance from bars and restaurants and anything else you need.

The condo is well appointed and while the stairs leading upstairs are steep, not recommended if you are older, there is plenty of room in this unit. The kitchen has everything you need and the small outdoor space in back is perfect. We loved having a grill to cook and just hang around outside in the wonderful weather.

This is a cool place in a neighborhood w a lot of character and convenience. I'd definitely recommend a stay here!!!

Owner's Response: I'm always happy to have great guests who are ready to tackle those circa 1894 stairs and who appreciate the character of an old townhouse. I feel lucky to be in such a great neighborhood where the choices are many, and I am always up to help make recommendations so my guests can have an experience that they will enjoy!
