About Audrey Beckett

My husband Ted and I grew up in California and moved to Colorado Springs in 1990. We own a Land Development company. We are of retirement age and want to travel to see our grandchildren and travel to other parts of the world to pursue our ministry interests in India and the Holy Land.

Audrey Beckett purchased this villa in 2005

Why Audrey Beckett chose Colorado Springs

The Colorado Springs area is beautiful all year around. The temperatures are mild, the sun shines most of the time, the air is clean. There are many outdoor activities and fun attractions. Colorado Springs was ranked the 6th Best Weekend Getaway by U.S. News & World Report

What makes this villa unique

Our home is beautifully situated on 2.4 acres among the pine trees but still in the middle of Colorado Springs and close to everything. Our home is truly one of a kind from the stone wall w/pond in the entry to the spa room with its wood ceiling and walls of windows.

Beautiful Location with all the space you could wish for!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with a party of 17. Everyone slept comfortably in their own room and many rooms had balconies where we could sit and drink our coffee! There were also outside balconies with beautiful views that were wonderful to sit at and visit and listen to the animals. Many days we observed mule deer wandering around the exterior of the house.

The house has a huge table that seats 20 and a huge kitchen where many people can work at the same time. We enjoyed having room to move around and cook and visit. We found all the plates and dishes and cooking utensils we needed to cook for a multitude of people. YOu might invest in some cheap storage containers and ziplock backs to store leftovers. We didn't find many.

The house is full of couches and comfortable places to sit. The house is full of books so you will not run out of something to flip through if you have time.

We had no plumbing issues or issues of any kind. We also enjoyed that each bedroom had a fan and a window or balcony that could open. The fresh air was wonderful to sleep to.

The owners are very down to earth and eager to help. WE had one small issue with the driveway which was resolved the next day.

The mattresses in the screening room were shorter than they appeared in picture so would be better for kids. The pull out couch upstairs had a thin bent mattress that couldn't be slept on. These are small things that in no way affected our visit, just full disclosure. Also, be aware you will be driving on a gravel road for a little while with some bumpy terrain as you approach the house.

Anyway, this house created the backdrop for an amazing vacation and we are very thankful for our time spent there!

Beautiful property for a reunion

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for the 20 of us to stay. The 10 grandkids had their own space and could play without being under foot. The basement area lacked sufficient air conditioning. A large portion of the beds were comfortable but a couple were not. The house is stocked with everything you would need. There is only 1 hair dryer for 6 bathrooms. Kitchen is well stocked. The bedroom off the dinning room is not air conditioned and very difficult to open the windows. But there are a lot of fans through out the house. The house is dated but it is very comfortable. The property is beautiful and is in a perfect location. The grandkids loved the basket ball goal and the play area. We had fun playing pool and ping pong. Great place for families to gather.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Audrey was super. She made sure we knew how to run the hot tub and operate appliances. There was enough room for everyone to have their own space. The common spaces did not feel crowded even when we all gathered together.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Audrey for allowing us to rent your fabulous home for our vacation. We had 25 people staying in the house and six others in a nearby hotel ranging from almost one year to 85 years old. Your home made it possible for us to gather together for many of the meals and just hang out and spend time together. We were able to watch the fireworks from the deck outside the spa room (and some of us from inside the hot tub). Thank you again for a wonderful, memorable vacation.

It started out nice, but the A/C quit and people got sick...

  • 2 of 5

I held off giving a review in hopes that the owner would respond to my email/texts from 10 days ago. But she has not replied to my request nor to VRBO's request to contact me. Our group of 20 stayed at the house from June 20-25, 2017. The central A/C on second floor was out of order for two days. It eventually got partially repaired. The main horrific issue with the house is that a minimum of six people got the flu toward the end of our stay. The owner's assistant had the flu when showing us the home upon our arrival but tried to assure us that she was taking precautions. When we checked out on the 25th, she arrived again to clean and I mentioned the illnesses to which she didn't respond. I wrote the owner advising her of the illnesses and my desire to visit. A rep from VRBO/HomeAway told me that this was a serious matter, but to date, no one has gotten back to me. This property is up for sale we noted upon arrival, and I am wondering if the owner no longer has a true vested interest in keeping the home up. The carpets, rugs, are very worn and updates are needed. Sheets were thin, some quite threadbare. The exercise equipment was not there and no explanation given. Most of all, the house needs sanitizing, as the flu virus made it's way around. Colorado Springs is a wonderful vacation spot, but the home we stayed in was not prepared and disinfected as it should have been. I'm disappointed that the owner has not responded in this matter, though she was responsive prior to our arrival and halfway into our stay.

Owner's Response: Donna, I was very sorry that your guests got the flu during their vacation. The cleaning crew leader did not have the flu, she had eaten something that didn't agree with her the night before and was feeling a little weak. As soon as you told me the air conditioning had stopped working, I had the maintenance person fix the air conditioning system and it worked well for the remainder of your vacation. The sheets were all new at the beginning of this season and are a polyester blend, which is softer than cotton and dries faster. All of the cleaning is done using disinfectant sprays and wipes on all the flat surfaces, kitchen, bathrooms, door handles, etc. You had wanted a refund due to perceived problems but no refund was warranted.

Beautiful, spacious home -- perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Villa for our son's USAFA graduation knowing we would have many guests needing a place to stay. The house is situated in the city but it feels as though you are in a private, wooded area. We saw many deer throughout our stay. We used every bed but never felt as though we were cramped and falling over each other. The rooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were large. We LOVED the large dining table and sat around eating and visiting most of the evenings we were there. The kitchen had all of the tools we needed (except sharp knives) and we were able to cook and bake easily. We watched movies in the media room, sat in the hot tub, took walks in the neighborhood and sat out on the front porch or back porch while drinking our morning coffee or watching the sunset.

Also, we were so thankful to Audrey for being so easy to work with when the date was changed for the USAFA graduation by a week. We had booked the Villa a couple of years in advance and the date changed less than a year before the graduation. We heard many stories from other parents who lost the homes they had rented and those owners were unsympathetic. Audrey was WONDERFUL and very kind and understanding. Our week at the Villa was truly relaxing and we celebrated our new 2d Lieutenant with family and friends at our sides, in a lovely setting! We highly recommend the Mediterranean Villa for your next visit to Colorado Springs!
