Large, sunny laundry room with washer and dryer. Ironing board, iron, retractable indoor clothesline and clothes pins. Laundry detergent provided.

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

(The interior of our house is wheel chair accessible, but there are two steps up to the front door.)

We offer everything for parents to keep them safe, entertained, and comfortable. The home is all one level, with no dangerous stairs. All of the windows have cordless blinds.

*** Allergy Friendly
No smoking inside the home or outside on the property. We require a clean air environment, and we would prefer that smokers do not stay here.

Please no pets.

Please do not burn candles or incense while in our home.

*** Our clean team is the best!
We are very different in this aspect from other VRBO's in town. We insist that we as owners clean and maintain our own property. We do not hire out a cleaning service. This ensures that the home is maintained to a higher level of guest satisfaction. 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 rental that other rentals may not do:

1. A Jesus Christ centered home away from home. "Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations." Psalm 90:1

2. New towels and 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.

5. A clean team that is within the family. Ask other VRBO's "Who cleans this rental?" You would be shocked at the answer. Most VRBO's are cleaned in 2 hours with little attention provided. When my clean team shows up to our VRBO, it is myself (the owner,) 3 to 4 family members and 2 close friends. We then spend 6 to 8 hours on the inside and outside of the property thoroughly cleaning it - ensuring your stay is fantastic.

6. We really care that you have a wonderful experience. Many other rentals are "short time," offered only for Air Force Academy events or certain weeks a year, and the owner has very little experience in maintaining a quality VRBO. Ask them if they run their VRBO full time, or for just a "few weeks a year."
We have 4 years of expertise in running a VRBO. We are thankful for the 250+ guests we have had the privilege to meet and have stay again with us!

Also, when you stay at our VRBO, it is a true VRBO. In other words, it isn't a family residence that is used as a VRBO once-in-awhile. When you stay at a family residence it will likely have locked rooms unavailable to you, sentimental or "too personal decor," and sharing of closets and dresser space.

Our VRBO is a true VRBO. It is designed with ease of use, maximum guest comfort, and reliable owner support.

7. Staying with us supports our adoption of our daughter from China. Your family vacation gives forward! :)

"I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains." Psalm 121:1.2

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! 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 comfortable Lazy Boy chairs and sofa. 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!
