About Lloyd

Shannon moved to Colorado Springs in 1999 because of her love of the mountains and skiing! Lloyd moved to Colorado Springs in 2008 after meeting Shannon at a mutual friend's wedding, he quickly left Wisconsin to be with the love of his life (and beautiful Colorado!) We were married at the end of 2009 and decided that we would move out of the home and start our new life in a new home together. (Shannon thought Lloyd was Crazy for this! LOL) We currently reside in Colorado Springs and love all that it has to offer in it's own backyard from, hiking, biking to taking family walks in the many parks! With over 300 days of sunshine, a temperate climate and amazing views why would you not want to vacation in Colorado Springs? Be careful, you might not want to return home!!

Lloyd purchased this house in 2005

Why Lloyd chose Colorado Springs

Shannon worked for the builder and decided to build a custom home when the sub-division was opened. She had the pick of the lots and chose one of the best, mainly because of the open space in the back yard, which feels like your own little sanctuary! Shannon and I rarely stay in hotels when we travel. We love using VRBO and always enjoy the amenities staying in a home offers. So after renting to long term renters we decided that VRBO gives us the opportunity to share this marvelous home with many more families and make their vacations that much better. We love what this city has to offer and this home is right in the middle of everything!

What makes this house unique

What's not to love about this home. First off it's spacious and open and has many custom upgrades; it feels cozy yet luxurious. The best part of the home by far, is the back yard. Whether you are relaxing in the living room looking outside or sitting on the large patio you will feel at peace. You don't even know there are neighbors when in the back yard, it's your own little slice of paradise. Plus, watching the birds, deer, squirrel, and the occasional coyote or bear is always fun! You don't even have to go far to take a hike! The back yard is city park and you can explore all over the area! The other great perk of this house is that it is centrally located. Literally walking/biking distance to University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) and parks like well known Palmer Park. Downtown, shopping, malls, restaurants, golfing, hiking and military bases like the Air Force Academy are minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Lloyd. We loved your home and created great memories there. It is absolutely beautiful and I hope you continue to list it with VRBO because we will be back. We appreciate the opportunity to rent it.

Super Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is superb. The back patio is an excellent feature with fire pit, hot tub, and very quiet with lovely sounds of nature. You really don't hear anything else and it feels very secluded even though you are in a neighborhood. The house is well equipped with everything you will need ~ 2 TV areas with cozy couches, fire places and all the bedrooms were quite comfortable. The kitchen is large and very well equipped for cooking. I can't say anything bad about this place because there isn't a negative thing about it! Two thumbs up for the weekend stay!

Great place! Owners great to work with!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house surely met our expectations. Our guests all felt they had enough space and did not feel crowded. The kitchen was excellent for entertaining as was the back patio with the fire pit and hot tub. We made use of both. After the days' events, this was truly a nice place to fully relax.

There were little issues, like the iron didn't work. The owner was very responsive and offered to either bring one the next morning or reimburse us if we picked one up. Throughout our entire time of securing the location (two years prior to our engagement), to being there, the owner was always attentive and responsive to any inquiry we had.

I would definitely recommend this home. The only sad thing was having to leave...

Beautiful property that was very welcome. Great value for the price.

They had plenty of supplies and everything you would need for a long stay with a big family. The location is amazing and very close to many of the coolest things to do in Colorado Springs.

There is so much to do in this area, especially if you are an outdoor enthusiast. Many hiking/biking trails all over the city from easy to difficult. Take the COG railway up to the top of Pikes Peak or hike the incline in Manitou Springs. Visit the Air Force Academy, play golf at one of the many courses in town. If pampering is what you are after, visit one of the numerous spas in town and get a massage or your nails done!
