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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

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!

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.

Ideal location and charming a space

  • 5 of 5

This is possibly the best VRBO my husband and I have stayed in. Kimberley was attentive and responsive and left us treats such as home made cookies and a bottle of wine, among other surprises. The bed is very comfortable. The location is perfect if you're looking to walk around Pearl St. Mall. Would defenetley stay there again.
