About Darlina Eichman

Hi. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs and have a true love of the mountain lifestyle and beauty. Most of my family lives here, so I grew up with tons of aunts, uncles and cousins. I met my husband while attending Colorado College and we now have one son and three grandchildren living here. It's not only a splendid place to live but is on the top of many Americans' touring list. Even as Colorado natives, we never run out of things to do. We love to hike, bike, ski, river raft, attend camps and colleges and shop at the local stores in Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City. Each summer we attend the Colorado Renaissance Festival, which is a lot of fun!

Darlina Eichman purchased this house in 2013

Why Darlina Eichman chose South Central

We searched all over the central front range for the best location to put our vacation home and found it in Monument. What's so special about Monument? It's quiet. The views are incredible. There is easy access to restaurants, big box stores and local coffee shops. Plus the small historic town has the nicest people!

What makes this house unique

Growing up with a view of Pikes Peak made me think that every kid had a mountain in his/her backyard. After living many years in my young adulthood in other states, I began to appreciate how much beauty, spiritual calm and fun awaited me in my home town. When I moved back, I took advantage of the things I had taken for granted and fell in love with Colorado. My husband is originally from Wisconsin and he loves the milder Colorado winters. The springtime is sweet with fragrant flowers. Summers are dry (except for the occaisional July downpour that will soak you wet and be gone in 20 minutes) and cool at night. Autumn makes Colorado colorful. Our Colorado vacation home shows off all these attributes.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. Nice and clean, jacuzzi, views, nice neighborhood. Close to everything. We even took in a Colorado Springs Sky Sox game, only 25 minutes away! Same with Garden of the Gods.

Grocery store, Walmart, restaurants, bowling at Uncle Bucks, Go kart racing 5 minutes away.

House is comfortable and plenty of space. We enjoyed the jacuzzi in the early mornings and evenings and played some foosball too!

Great stay! Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Wow, Jennifer! It sounds like you did it all. I'm so happy that our Colorado Home was a comfortable and fun place for your family to stay. We love how convenient it is, too. I even found a glow-in-the-dark bowling alley at the Bass Pro Shop that is super cool for the kids. Maybe you can check it out next time you're in town! Thanks for the wonderful review and for selecting our home! Darlina

Love shopping? A brand new 120,000 square foot Bass Pro Shop is now open and the Factory Outlet at Castle Rock is a quick and beautiful 28 minute drive. Denver and all of its attractions are only 45 minutes away.
