About Torkin Wakefield

Boulder has been our home for thirty years. We often travel to Africa on medical relief projects. We have two children and two grandchildren, a dog, a cat (neither included in rental--unless special arrangements are made) and fish in the pond. Charles is an AIDS doctor and Torkin has founded a poverty eradication project in Uganda called BeadforLife.

Torkin Wakefield purchased this house in 2009

Why Torkin Wakefield chose Boulder

A few years ago, after many years living in the mountain town of Gold Hill, we wanted to be closer to all the wonderful opportunities in downtown Boulder. We looked for two years until we found the really perfect home. It felt so like us we knew it was our next home. Imagine our surprise when the realtor called with the news we had been outbid and another family would call 'our' home theirs. Sure enough, 3 months later the new owner put it on the market as they were unable to make the finances work, and we were able to purchase what all along we knew was our lifetime dreamhome. And now you get to be at home here too.

What makes this house unique

Perfect Location near Pearl St. and North Boulder Rec. Center.

Comfortable natural spaces with lots of sunlight

Hot tub for long soaks

Gas fireplaces creates cozy ambiance

Beautiful outdoor space in back, perfect for entertaining

Dog door and fenced back yard

Fish pond with waterfall adding peaceful sounds to this beautiful yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved staying in your comfy home. It is full of light and beauty. And the location allowed us to get to everything in Boulder easily. Thank you so much.

Will be back.

  • 5 of 5

The 5 of us truly enjoyed this rental! The koi pond, hut tub, back yard, full kitchen and the space we had and how close it was to Pearl Street mall and amazing places to eat what was not to love. Would recommend and rent again without hesitation. Thanks to Cassidy for making us feel welcome in this beautiful home.

Peaceful, Spacious, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We came to Boulder with our 2 adult children to celebrate a milestone birthday for my wife. This home was a wonderful retreat! It's spacious and peaceful. It's the perfect distance from Pearl street...close enough to walk, yet far from the party crowds. The kitchen is a great place to cook with a large island, gourmet appliances, and lots of counter space. There are lots of skylights providing lots of natural light into the house. Note that one of the skylights is over the bed in the master bath. We got used to the early morning light, but a shade would be a good addition. Overall though, this was a great experience and we'd come back! Cassidy, the person looking after the home for the owners, was super helpful!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in June at this home. I have to say out of the dozen rental homes, this was the best. It really did feel like a home. Paper towels, toliet paper, laundry det, etc. was provided. You are 10 minutes away to coffee, food, and grocery. The neighbors are super friendly and it's super safe. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Thanks Cassidy for all the help and thanks Torkin for letting us share your home.

Lovely home with beautiful garden. Private upstairs space for guests. Quick walk to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our month in this wonderful, comfortable home. We cooked a lot. Loved the high end appliances, wine fridge, dishes and flatware, Direct TV. Fresh herbs and berries in the garden. Hot tub. Gym, pool, yoga, water aerobics and Pilates at the nearby rec center. We were able to get a monthly non-resident pass at a reasonable rate. Excellent hiking/biking trails nearby. Deer and goats in the neighborhood! We walked into downtown Boulder (.8 miles) every day. Our golden retriever was welcomed. Dog friendly area. Enjoyed concerts at Red Rocks and Chautauqua, plays at UC Boulder, movies at Century Cinema. We definitely recommend and would gladly return.
