Why mahlia lindquist chose Boulder

We like older neighborhoods, with established trees and a sense of history. Most important, we love the location. It is walking or biking distance to the restaurants and shopping on Pearl Street, 29th Street Mall, CU, and Boulder Creek. For trips to Denver and the airport, it's easy to hop on highway 36, which is just a half mile away. At the same time, our area has a great neighborhood feel and is quiet.

An absolutely wonderful place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Mahlia"s home was the perfect home away from home for our family. So comfortable and clean and supplied with everything we needed. However, be wary that she does have a very nice high end grind your own beans coffee maker which totally confused us old folks but our niece stopped by at just the right moment and totally rescued the situation. We hope to return next summer to enjoy Mahlia's wonderful house and another season of Colorado Shakespeare Festival! Thank you all so very much! Fair thee well all wonderous souls!

Owner's Response: HI Cindy. So glad that you enjoyed your stay and, most importantly, figured out the coffee maker! I would love to have you all back and am always happy to give returning guests a 10% discount. Cheers, Mahlia

Clean, cozy, awesome location

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a great place to crash in downtown Boulder this is definitely worth considering.The street is quite, the house gets lots of natural light and the photos represent the interior well. There is plenty of rooms and places to sit in the living room and the kitchen was well stocked and clean. Owner was incredibly professional and responsive.

Boulder retreat

  • 4 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised and was perfect for four old friends gathering for our annual reunion without wives. It was clean and ready for our arrival. It is located in a very quiet Boulder neighborhood. We never had a problem finding a parking spot on the street. The internet worked great. The house layout of 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms provided plenty of room to sleep and hang out. Depending on how far we needed to go on Pearl Street, our leisurely walk took about 20-30 minutes, always on sidewalks, through pleasant and safe surroundings. We had a marvelous time and enjoyed our stay.

Although quite minor, a TV probably would have enhanced our stay and window screens would have been nice since we liked to open windows a bit to get a mountain breeze.

Do not rent if you stay up past 9 pm!!!

  • 1 of 5

This house is older but would be ok except for the BITTER NEIGHBORS who are very upset about this VRBO being in their neighborhood. We rented this house with the owners FULL KNOWLEDGE that it was a bridal party of under 8 people, house maximum for sleeping, for 5 nights. We only had 10 people at any one time in the house discussing the upcoming wedding festivities, only 3 extra people who did NOT stay the night and they left before midnight. There was no music, only talking and the occasional laugh. NOONE smoked in the house and following the rules of the house by smoking outside.

The neighbors first complained to us about us parking on the public street even though there is NOWHERE else to park. She then glared at us at every opportunity and called the owner to report our 10 people inside the house for an after the rehearsal dinner discussion. She was literally outside her house at every occasion watching us, reporting on us. The owner then called the next day, threatened to call the police if we didn't " Get Out of Her House! while screaming at myself and my mother. A normal , professional discussion should of consisted of "Hey Keep it down" etc.. Not Get Out! The owner has obviously had a lot of problems with her neighbors and they are truly sick of this VRBO. We refused to leave since we had the wedding the next day and THANKFULLY didn't hear from her again although the anger continued from the neighbors.

The house is older, not well maintained(dryer has to be turned on via pliers), and has a lack of electrical sockets, as evidenced by the extension cords under the couch. This is actually the reason why we broke one lamp after tripping over the extension cord and this owner decided it was worth the exact amount of our deposit. Interesting, huh? She also claims we stole a ceramic rabbit. YES, you are reading this right, a ceramic Rabbit! RIDICULOUS!

All I can say is if you plan to actually ENJOY your vacation, I would not recommend renting from this owner or the house.

Owner's Response: Actually, we received two complaints from different neighbors because of a parade of people shuffling between a camper and our home, and a party that went past midnight on a Tuesday. The camper was parked in front of a neighbors home with people loitering about, smoking and talking loudly late into the evening. That neighbor threatened to call the police The "bitter" neighbor referenced in the review has no issue with vacation rentals in the neighborhood because she uses our her own house as a vacation rental. We have been friends with both of the neighbors who complained for over 15 years and hosted many parties, as well as renters for several years. Neither one has ever complained. not even once. Moreover, having rented our house as both a short term and long term rental, I have never had to keep any portion of a deposit. Finally, in addition to the parties, which our agreement clearly states are not permitted, there were at least 2 additional people staying in the house other than what was disclosed, in addition to the friends and family coming in and out of the camper. The amount withheld in this case did not even being to cover the damage.
