About Arran Huckstep

We've lived in the Springs since the Air Force brought us here in 1996.

Arran Huckstep purchased this house in 2006

Why Arran Huckstep chose South Central

We bought this house with the intent of living in it forever, and started a massive renovation to make it perfect. Six years later the project finished. Ironically we moved about 2 months before the final touches were complete, but we take a lot of pride and pleasure in the level of enjoyment our guests get.

What makes this house unique

I love the indoor pool and the great room. When we lived there we put up a trampoline in the great room and the kids jumped all winter.

My lawyer says to be sure to tell you not to try the trampoline thing. And besides it was before the chandeliers were installed and ruined the airspace.

Large, comfortable house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The two things I loved most about this house were 1) how convenient it was to all the main sights in Colorado Springs (Broadmoor, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs/Pikes Peak etc) and 2) the space in the home which allowed all 11 of us to hang out together in the great room or retreat to our own spaces as necessary.

Our group ranged in age from 13 to 73 so the convenience factor was important as we could get out and do an activity in the morning, come home around lunch and rest a bit and head back out for an afternoon activity without overly tiring the 60+ family members. We also tend to cook most meals at home and the kitchen was more than adequate for our needs.

The bedrooms are spread out well throughout the house so people could have their space to work, nap or get quiet time as needed but we also had plenty of space to be together as a family for dinner or post dinner games.

Managing rental properties is not easy and sometimes maintenance issues come up unexpectedly. We did run into a couple of things, but Arran is very responsive and he did everything he possibly could to fix the issues or make things right for us. He absolutely made us feel that he wanted us to fully enjoy our stay to our satisfaction. And we did!

Colorado Springs vacation home

  • 3 of 5

Great location close to all activities. House has plenty of room, large great room. Accommodated 10 adults and 5 children comfortably. Kids loved indoor pool. However, kitchen had low water pressure and poor lighting. Internet was very spotty working only a few days we were there. Mouse spotted in one of lower bedrooms. Everybody had great time visiting Colorado Springs.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a very big family staying here. Not once did we have a problem with being in someones way or anything. I would recommend getting the light bulbs replaced. But overall we had a wonderful time in this beautiful home! The pool was awesome too!!!

Wonderful family vacation in Colorado Springs.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 7 adults and 7 children. The home was just what we were looking for; enough bedrooms for everyone, plenty of bathrooms and a large kitchen. But, of course, the grandkids loved the pool. The location of the home was supper because it was close to many of the popular attractions. Would definitely stay again if we return with the family in the future.

Purrrrrfect for any time you need to put family or friends together!

  • 5 of 5

Great area/living room very spacious for large groups ...bedding certainly first class as well as the condition over all of the property ... pool well maintained and well used by the kids with good visibility from great room for parents to the pool but out of the noise and in comfort of the great room ...the house is nicely secluded from neighbors ...lots of wildlife ...back padio very functional and strangely insect free ...plenty of comfortable seating for adults upstairs and a great home theater downstairs to entertain the kids ... location wise ...very good as you cannot begin to do all there is to do around the area in a week ....

WE WILL BOOK AGAIN!
