I'm in the U.S. Air Force and originally from Long Island, New York. After 10+ years in the military, I've lived in many places...but have always wanted to come live near the mountains in Colorado. After spending 4 years in the Washington, DC area, I finally had that opportunity to come to Colorado.
Matt purchased this House in 2011
Why Matt chose East Colorado Springs
I set out to purchase my first home here upon arrival in Colorado Springs, and absolutely fell in love with this home from the moment I saw it. With everything I wanted -- historic character, modern touches, open layout, and close to the heart of downtown, this unique home is my dream house.
What makes this House unique
As an avid entertainer, I thoroughly enjoy the gourmet kitchen and dining table for 12+... but the media room is the feature that initially caught my eye, and I've hosted numerous movie nights and viewings of major sporting events here.

It was very clean, and welcoming!
I absolutely loved staying here. There was so much space and close to everything. Everything was provided for us. I would highly recommend this home to anyone. I will be coming back!
Perfect Central Retreat
All the comforts of home in the heart of the city. Clean and updated with plenty of room for a big gang. Fabulous hot tub. Couldn't have asked for more
We had a great stay. Loved the hot tub.
Excellent property! Spacious, well stocked, clean, ... loved our stay

If we come back to the area - we are booking again.
This house is laid out perfectly for a family of 11 ranging in age from 3-50 years old. We weren't stepping on eachother. Lots of space for everyone. It was stocked great. Plenty of towels and robes. The hot tub was fantastic. James, the manager, was very good to us and responsive when we needed something. I would recommend anybody driving a car that is low to NOT enter or exit the driveway from the front of house. Find the alleyway behind the house and enter the driveway there. You will be happy and so will your car!
Really, a terrific vaca rental!
The house had everything we needed; the kids love it and want it again
We make this trip every year and would rent it again in a heartbeat
We enjoyed having you, I sent you some information concerning your next visit via your e-mail.
