About Laura Jacobsen

We live in Fort Collins but love our trips to Denver--especially around the holidays and for some of the great festivals in the summer. This home gives us the opportunity to bring our family and friends with no hassle. Since we've owned this property we've been continually surprised at what a great area University Hills is.

Laura Jacobsen purchased this house in 2013

Why Laura Jacobsen chose University Hills

It's hip but it's also well appointed to comfortably accommodate a family or group of friends.

What makes this house unique

The best of both worlds--no need for a car or being stuck in traffic with the light rail right there--get to downtown in a snap. But also enjoy a spacious home and backyard. Use our bikes and bring your dog.

average rating of 4.6 based on 5 reviews

Excellent location, small but comfortable house, and the owner was so helpful!

  • 5 of 5

As you entered the house, you can see it is small Andy it is an “old” house, but the owner renewed it and made the place so cozy. There is also a huge backyard! But, what my family and I loved about the house is that it is not dark, there is so much light coming in.

The location is great, walking distance to groceries, pharmacy, restaurants and other shops. Also, it is easy access to get a bus and by car, you Can easily take the highway, which is so close, that will take you everywhere!

My family and I stayed in the house for almost 2 months and had to contact the owner some times, and she was always prompt in the responses.

I highly recommend the house. Great location!

When my family comes back to visit me, we will definitely contact the owner again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. It is amazing how the home is all at once cozy and specious for a smaller space. The back yard does make it feel like you might be in the country rather than conveniently located to so much of what Denver offers. I'm glad your family enjoyed and hope to see you again when they visit our country again.

Denver Diamond

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many airBnB and Home Away properties. This rental was the most enjoyable by far. All eminites are included right down to body wash, conditioner and shampoo. You are super close to shopping food and transportation. We enjoyed the outdoor barbecue grill along with the beautiful huge back yard. The house may look small from the outside but you will be surprised when you walk in. Everything in this house has been updated. I would rent this property again no questions asked. Thank you for everything

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this home with 4 other friends for a 5 days and it was wonderful. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, had plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, and supplies. Perfect location for quick access to downtown Denver or many of the small towns around the area, which we did explore. Light rail very close and convenient for saving money on parking downtown as well. Owner always got back to me within a few hours during the day. Appreciated recommendations for things to do in the area. Would recommend this place to family and friends if they are looking for am awesome vacation spot/home! Also would stay again if I'm ever coming back that way!

Perfect place for a weekend in Denver

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a weekend stay in this house and can't say enough good things. The backyard was huge and had a ton of space to hang out and grill. The house had plenty of space for our group of 12 and was an excellent home base for our weekend in Denver!

University Hills--a great Denver neighborhood just a mile from DU and a mile from light rail, close to Denver Tech Center, Cherry Creek and hospitals. Enjoy all the local neighborhood restaurants and Denver culture. Great for visiting professionals and parents visiting students, or anyone coming to enjoy Denver. Take a quick trip to Broadway to go antiquing. Shop at Sprouts or Vitamin Cottage just down the street. Find local independent theaters. Great home base for those who want to explore the mountains or visit Red Rocks in just 25 minutes. High Line Canal trail at the end of the block--rides bikes all the way downtown or to Cherry Creek Resevoir. Park and recreation center just a block away with tennis courts and swimming pool.
