Wonderful location in the Flatiron foothills

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely. Jewel and Greg were wonderful to work with and very hospitable. The location was perfect and just a short drive from a couple of supermarkets. Easy access to downtown Boulder made it possible to go to the Pearl Street mall for shopping, exploring restaurants or for just an ice cream cone and an evening stroll.

A Great Thanksgiving In The Snow

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of renting a home instead of a hotel room while on vacation. It was a great experience. The owner of the home has done a fabulous job of decorating. The home is very open. We particularly enjoyed the sun room with the gas cast iron stove. It snowed during our visit which made everything about the trip a little magical. The location is very convenient to everything you would want to see in Boulder. It has a fenced back yard and a hot tub we did not have time to use. Each room has its own character. We loved it!!!! The owner had a fresh blooming plant on the table and everything was fresh and clean.

With Gratitude!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Zen retreat for a long graduation weekend. We could not have asked for more. The home is idyllic: comfortable, well equipped, well maintained, clean, with a lovely, contemplative atmosphere. The decor is very tasteful, with beautiful woodwork and updated bathrooms. We hosted two dinners for family and a few friends. There was plenty of room, cooking was convenient, and the layout was perfect for entertaining. We had lousy weather with rain and snow, but this place was a pleasure to return "home" to, and the hot tub helped with the fun. Thank you Jewel for sharing your home with us. We had a love-filled, memorable celebration!

Beautiful Boulder Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the people to stay in for a friends wedding in July. We had a great time! This is a beautiful property in a good Boulder location. It was very clean and well decorated. They layout is great for hosting guests as well as and the kitchen was wonderfully equipped. The owners were very helpful with information and flexible when some of us needed a place to wait for an airport shuttle. I would recommend this rental for any group coming to Boulder!

Beautiful / Quiet South Boulder home

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family just returned from a very memorable vacation to Colorado which included a week's stay in this Boulder home. The four adults and four children found this to be comfortable retreat from our busy lives back in CT. We each had enough room to spread out and found all the comforts of home at our disposal. Although the kids were concerned there was only 1 TV, it forced us to "unplug" for the week and really connect to one another and all that Boulder has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub after our hikes into Boulder's Flatirons, just a short walk from the property. We enjoyed how quiet the neighborhood was, yet how conveniently located it was to everything we needed (grocery store, restaurants, Hwy 36, downtown Boulder's Pearl Street). When we return to Boulder (and we will be back) we would definitely consider renting this property again.
