Property description

'You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.' Isaiah 55:12 NIV

Why we do what we do: As parents of three daughters (soon to be four), we are always concerned for our family above all else. We are concerned about their safety, comfort, and happiness.

While on a vacation, my wife and I are especially aware of these concerns, and consistently desire our family to create safe lasting memories as well as to experience the best possible time while doing so.

After personally experiencing VRBOs and hotels that seemed to detract from our family vacations, we wanted to ensure that families who came to our VRBO home, enjoyed something different.

That's why our family promise is to only offer homes in the best locations-- with the best conditions a VRBO can offer. We firmly believe that if we can't live in the home happily ourselves, we won't expect you to do so.

When you choose to stay at our VRBO home, you have our personal promise that your family will feel welcomed, loved and cared for--all from family you never knew you had---in Colorado Springs.

*** Our clean team is the best!
Check out our reviews from past guests. Our housekeeping and landscaping team work hard, and do not cut corners. You will arrive to a home that is sparkling clean, well organized, and ready for you to enjoy. Our clean team is all in the family, and we enjoy working on the property together.

Just a few of the things we provide in our rentals that no other rentals do:

1. New towels every 6 months.
2. New bed linens every 6 months.
3. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair spray, hand soap, cotton balls, q-tips, hand lotion, Kleenex, body lotion, make-up remover wipes, hairdryers, and toilet paper. (Believe it or not, most rentals don't provide toilet paper. They request you bring your own!)
4. We supply paper towels, dish soap and laundry detergent, and basic kitchen spices. (Cinnamon, salt, and pepper.)
5. A clean team that is within the family. We take pride in our rentals, because they are our homes. We ensure that each rental is cleaned thoroughly and "little touches" of hospitality are felt by each guest.
6. We really care that you have a wonderful experience. Many other rentals are offered only for Air Force Academy events or certain weeks a year, and the owner has very little experience in maintaining a quality VRBO. We have 4 years of expertise in running a VRBO. We are thankful for the 150+ guests we have had the privilege to meet and have stay again with us!
7. Staying with us supports our adoption of our daughter from China. Your family vacation gives forward! :)

Check in as early as 4PM, and check out as late as 10AM.

We are centrally located to everything in Colorado Springs. From visiting the world's only mountain zoo: Cheyenne Mt. Zoo, to touring the natural splendor of Garden of the Gods, to driving all the way to the top of Pikes Peak for an unforgettable view; we are several minutes from these top tourist destinations. But we live right next to the best park in the city: Palmer Park! Drive up to the overlook, it only takes about 7 minutes to get to the top, and then take in the view of the entire front range mountains!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are natives to Colorado Springs. We have three young children who love being outdoors, and exploring new places. We enjoy hiking, swimming, and traveling. Our vacation rental home is a reflection of our love for family, and our love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We live in town, and can offer lots of suggestions on where to eat, play, and have fun as a family! Last summer we were chosen for Focus on the Family's Thriving Magazine July cover. Your stay benefits the cost of our adoption of our daughter, Esther, from China. We thank all of our guests who have supported us in our journey to adopt!

Why the Owner Chose East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
The Colorful Colorado home was built in the Centennial Heights neighborhood in 1959. With wide streets, mature trees, large green lawns, long driveways, and large rectangular ranch style homes. It has all the charm and simplicity of the era, but is centrally located to all of the fun!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
See more! Do more! Make the most of your vacation without wasting time driving long distances to all corners of the city. We are the ONLY VRBO near Palmer Park, and central to everything else! Feel like taking it easy? Stay in and watch a 3D movie relaxing on our leather sectional. Or take a walk to the trails in Palmer Park, right behind our house! We have many guests tell us how much they enjoy the natural wildlife our VRBO has! From several deer, birds, and squirrels that visit our property daily to seeing the elusive black squirrel right in our VRBO's backyard! Serenity in the heart of the city. Apart from convenience, a quiet neighborhood, and an open floor plan that provides easy family fun; our home is priced to be family friendly while providing all of the luxuries you would expect at nicer hotels. Our dine-in kitchen makes it perfect for planning the next day's events over a home cooked meal, and make a perfect setting for retelling the day's excitement!
