About the property

4 Bedroom / 2 Bathroom in Central Boulder

Old world charm meets modern comfort in this neo-victorian Whittier Central Boulder home. We are located just walking distance from Pearl Street Mall, the University of Colorado, Naropa University, Boulder Creek Path, Whole Foods Market, 29th St Mall and more. Easy access to all Boulder has to offer -- walk or bike to everything!

The home features new furniture, hardwood floors, a fully stocked kitchen, all major appliances, and central air and heat. The three upstairs bedrooms have queen sized beds with brand new mattresses and new upscale bedding, and the downstairs room which can be used as a bedroom or cozy media room, has a brand new day bed.

There is a small fenced yard with a back deck -- a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee, afternoon tea or an evening cocktail. Despite it's downtown location, the neighborhood is quiet and there is plenty of off street parking.

Compliant with City of Boulder short term rental regulations, which permits a maximum of 4 unrelated occupants. Property #RHL2016-00924

As this is also a residence for at least 6 months of the year & the owner's schedule is flexible, the calendar may not always reflect availability so please feel free to email or call if there are specific dates you would like.

Why mahlia lindquist chose Whittier

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.

Great Location/Clean/Safe

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Bluff Cottage and Mahlia was terrific. The location is a 15 minute walk to the heart of the Pearl Street pedestrian zone through some cute neighborhoods. And the area felt quite safe. The house was very clean and we particularly liked the living room/kitchen area which is really nicely laid out for group socializing. Couldn't have been happier with our choice.

It's comfortable, clean, attractive. The location is wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Coffee maker is difficult to use and finding the toaster was a challenge. The downstairs bedroom needs an extension cord from the hidden outlet. Some of the bedroom overhead lights didn't work. We didn't use the oven but we noticed it hadn't been cleaned.

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.
