Why Kimberly & Roberta Gantz chose Boulder

Boulder is just a wonderful, energetic, healthy and exciting place to live and visit! I traveled here and fell in love during my first hike at Sanitas trail. Its peaceful and the the kind of place where you can walk down the street and have great conversations with friendly "strangers." We constantly remark on the unreal beauty that is literally in our backyard and we found great properties in the heart of downtown Boulder that allow us to offer accommodations for visitors like yourselves to enjoy all of it!

This apartment is so amazingly beautiful and feels just like home. The bed is seriously one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The location is amazing- very close to pretty much everything on Pearl Street. Thank you!

Boulder Happiness

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was that the write-up for this rental is true to every word. Kimberly and Roberta are a class act - responsive, warm and thoughtful. We had no worries related to the rental and for a 7 night stay found it had everything we needed, plus! Appreciated comfort details such as soft thick towels, adjustable lighting, useful hooks everywhere, water bottles for hiking. Location amazing - steps to restaurants and parks (yet quiet), and an easy launching pad for nature, science and arts day trips. No parking worries with a reserved space. Loved the balcony! The logistics and care of the condo were hassle-free. We often use VRBO and this experience ranks at the top. Sad to leave, and would definitely come back.

Weekend in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

My only regret is running out of time! The rental was top notch! It was homey and warm, just as it looks in the pictures. The decor and special added touches (i.e. welcome board, bottle of wine and flowers) were very classy and much appreciated. The owners were readily available by phone to answer any questions. The rental is just a block away from Pearl Street - shops, restaurants and bars. It is just a short drive to Rocky Mountain National Park, Roosevelt National Forest and Boulder Canyon. We were also able to enjoy a concert at Red Rocks (stunning scenery)! I highly recommend this rental in beautiful Boulder.

A cozy place to come home to!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Amethyst Corner two times and can't wait to return. Kim and Roberta made it so easy and provide everything we needed to make our 2 week stay comfortable and enjoyable. The apartment is immaculate and well appointed and the location ideal. We could walk almost anywhere we wanted to go. This is a true gem.

Awesome

This is the second time we've stayed here and definitely will not be the last. The location is right in the heart of where you want to be in Boulder! The apartment is set up to make you feel at home while traveling. Kimberly is so nice and very accessible if you ever have any questions. I hope all VRBO owners could be this great.

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

This home is adorable and beautifully decorated. The interior design is a fantastic match with the original brick walls making a comfortable retreat. The bed is extremely comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed. Roberta and Kimberly paid attention to every detail. They even checked to see what coffee we prefer to drink along with some surprise treats. The outdoor patio is a lovely place to drink the organic coffee and to read the paper. You will not be disappointed and I would definitely book this home again.

A centrally located respite!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay at Amethyst Corner! I chose it because of the location and other reviews here. I was very pleased with the property - I certainly cannot believe that this jewel cost me hundreds of dollars less than a hotel AND I got so much more! This was a solo trip for my birthday and I had more than enough space. (I could have comfortably lived there.) To my surprise the condo was packed with everything and anything that I could have possibly needed - including simple things like bandaids! It was spotlessly clean, the bed was super comfortable and the kitchen just begged me to prepare a meal in it but alas, breakfast and picnic lunches were all I prepared there.

It really felt like home to me and was within walking distance from many shops, restaurants, parks and lovely streets lined with historic homes. It was also a reasonable drive to Red Rocks Amphitheater, Rocky Mountain National Park and other sights in the area.

I will note that it was awkward bringing my large hardside suitcase up and down the stairs so beware of that if that can be an issue for you. There is no central air so it was slightly warm there during the heat of early July, but I was not miserable and slept comfortably.

I will definitely stay here again - - I want to come back NOW! Kimberly and Roberta were the perfect hostesses! Thank you!
