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.

Excellent accommodations for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The location is very convenient to Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods, grocery store, and much more. The children loved the pool and we enjoyed grilling on the patio.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with this property. The large and open main floor was perfect for our large family gathering. The property was very comfortable and had everything we could have possibly needed. I would also like to add that the property owner was extremely helpful and kind. We were having problems with wifi and he showed up with a new router to fix the issue. He even brought us a new Kuerig coffee maker! We would definitely book this property again.

Good home for family reunions

  • 4 of 5

This home is very spacious! We had our family reunion in Colorado Springs and this was our home base. The location is great…mature trees, nice views. It was easy for the group to do things together (eat, play games, etc.), but there were also more private TV and deck areas. The home worked well for our diverse group (ages 10 to 77). Also, the owner is responsive and accommodating. We had a wonderful time.

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!!!
