The place was very accommodating, just wish the TV s worked or rather I should say the cable.
Hello. Thank you so much for the positive review! We have 7 flat-screen TVs and DVDs in this home. We have Xfinity and a maintenance contract. I don’t understand how Xfinity momentarily failed us during your short stay, but all 7 of the flat-screen TVs work fine at this time.
Spacious and clean
Was great for 3 couples. Far away from downtown Colorado Springs but easy to get to. House is in a neighborhood Went to a concert at Falcon Stadium and it is very close and easy to get to as well.
Thank you for the great review!
We look forward to having you again as our guests.

Another Great stay!
This was our second time staying at this property. And it was another pleasant stay. So close to all the things we needed and we were able to enjoy the backyard this time. The property managers/owners are so responsive to any questions we had. We will be back for a third visit!
Property was presented very well.
WiFi password had not been updated in the book. Nothing would work, so we had to call. No instructions as to where the alarm pad is located in the house, so when we first entered the house the alarm went off and we had to go look for the pad. No specific instructions as to how to set the alarm pad when you leave through the front door. Main floor bathroom floor was dirty.
Thank you so very much for your comments. We normally include information about Wi-Fi and about the alarm in our confirmation letter. Perhaps this was overlooked. We will ensure in the future that this information is contained within all confirmation letters.
Our Cleaning Crew normally does a remarkable job. We sincerely apologize for dirty floor. In the future if Cleaning Services are needed, please notify us immediately and our crew will respond to your request.
Again thank you so very much for your comments, which are always very helpful to allowing us to be a better host for our guests.
Great vacation home!
The house is more beautiful than the pictures and is in a great location. My family of 6 stayed a full week and had plenty of space, comfortable beds and fun amenities. My only suggestions would be to update the porch furniture for such an upscale home the ripped chair cushions were a let down and for those of us not super tech advanced instructions for the surround sound and other electronics would have been helpful. Would recommend this property to anyone traveling to the Colorado Springs area and will stay there again if we get the opportunity!
Not quite what we expected
the stay at the property was uneventful, and I mean that in a good way. Here are some things to consider before staying here:
-you are in the middle of a subdivision so you really don't get a view or feel secluded in anyway. This was not promised in the description, so this is not the fault of the owners, I just would have preferred to know that upfront.
As far as the house itself:
- there was no keypad to open the garage door so we had to enter thru the front door and then sprint thru an unfamiliar house to try to find the alarm panel to disarm the alarm.
- we were asked to remove our shoes because of how nice and white the carpeting was - it didn't look that pretty and it was very rough (felt like it needed a deep clean)
- we were asked to park in the garage - the SUV we rented was too long to park in the garage so we had to park on the street
- there were numerous personal items in the home: family pictures, stuffed animals, etc that made it feel as if we were staying in someone's home while they stayed elsewhere; this was the first time I've experienced this feeling while renting homes and it was definitely a bit uncomfortable
- the exercise room was not usable - there were no windows in there and the light didn't work, so we couldn't enjoy it. Also, its more like a closet with far too much equipment in there and it felt claustrophobic. I was really bummed about this as I was trying to stay active on my vacation and i would have preferred a hotel gym.
- the ad says there are 2 king beds and that is true, but one of them does not have a private bathroom. this was an issue for our family as we had a large group with two sets of parents who were looking for "equal" accommodations for both sets of parents.
- the ad says there is a chauffeur - i have no idea how that is supposed to work as we never saw anyone. We didn't need one, but its just the point that if I had, i wouldn't have known how to secure it.
- we never received an email with directions how to get into the home prior to being on our way there. I had to call for directions.
- the luxury mentioned is clearly subjective. The home felt very crowded, too much furniture and not our taste. the p
-some things in the home made us uncomfortable - the blacklight mounted above the (master) bed for example
-the garage door kept opening by itself. i contacted the owners and just received a thank you but no explanation.
-everything seemed clean in the home; supplies were adequate
FDHA received many 5-Diamond, immaculate reviews over the last several years regarding this particular property and its affordability. All reviews are helpful to us to improve or maintain guest expectations.
-The property is conveniently located 2 miles east of I-25 & Interquest, and is situated close to many activities, attractions, events and restaurants.
- Our guests enter through the front door by their assigned 4-digit alarm code.
- Guests are asked to remove shoes, because the home has 70 oz white carpeting. The carpet is always clean and soft. If a guest finds a spot that our cleaning crew overlooked, we will send the crew back to address anything that was overlooked.
- The garage is large enough to accommodate large vehicles such as a Cadillac Escalade, but not all SUVs. Driveway and street parking right in front of the home is free, convenient and also readily available.
-FDHA does have pictures in the home as decorative items, but not family pictures. One bedroom has some stuffed animals, since children often like to play with some of the stuffed animals such as a teddy bear.
- The exercise room is accessed through two large 4 foot X 8 foot tall doors, which are usually kept open.
We did receive information that a few light bulbs burnt out in the exercise room, but FDHA replaced the bulbs an hour later.
-The exercise room in the home does have a lot of exercise equipment. If a large workout facility is desired, YMCA is 5 minutes away and 3 visits there are free. Also nearby, within 10 minutes, is Lifetime Fitness with a spa and many outdoor pools.
- This home has 5 spacious bedrooms with 2KS beds, 3 QS beds and 1 comfortable QS sleeper sofa. Three of the bedrooms have very spacious private bathrooms. Two bedrooms share one common spacious bathroom.
- A chauffeur can be arranged by our Guest Services.
- All guests receive an automated email or text message with the door code and directions, and we are not sure how this was overlooked. If you need this information, because it was not sent, please call FDHA.
- This luxury of the home is accurately reflected in the 24 pictures. FDHA does have other more expensive nearby properties at VRBO 387145 and VRBO 408791.
FDHA inspected the garage door, but we could find nothing wrong with the door. We believe an object was in line with the electric eye, which caused the door to automatically retract.
-The guest said, "everything seemed clean."
Thank you for your kind comments.
