About Rachel Losey

Young, vivacious couple, we love the great outdoors that Colorado offers. Always exploring another quiet corner of the world, we wanted to share our favorite one right here with other travelers. We love quality without being high-maintenance, and we hope to make your vacation comfortable and enjoyable.

Why Rachel Losey chose West Colorado Springs

Old Colorado City offers such a welcoming feel. From walking the tree-lined streets, to easy access for restaurants and events both downtown and in OCC, it doesn't take long to feel right at home. Convenient location with the peace and quiet of being tucked far away from the city, it's the best of both worlds!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful and the views were amazing. Racheal was very easy to get ahold of when we needed her. It was exactly what we needed for our vacation. It was very close to everything so the location was great too. We had a wonderful time and are so glad we stayed here. We will definitely be looking for this house next time we come to Colorado Springs.

Charming hillside cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this house. It is nicely updated, clean & comfortable. As other reviewers have pointed out the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We were on the go a lot, so only cooked breakfast a couple of times but if you wanted to cook, very nice kitchen. We loved sitting on the front porch looking at the mountains & on the back deck at night. Quiet neighborhood of cute houses on a narrow street. It was unseasonably warm when we were there so the lack of air conditioning made sleeping a little difficult as I am used to a cool room. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a portable a/c unit but the rest rely on fans. Even so, I would not hesitate to rent again if I return to Colorado Springs.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we entered the front door of this VRBO, we knew we were in for a treat! The place was immaculate. The kitchen was fully equipped with cookware, gadgets, glassware and spices. The refrigerator / freezer was huge and had many condiments that we would have had to buy. The gas stove even had a removable griddle. The bedrooms all had ceiling fans and the master bedroom had a fireplace. The bathrooms were stocked with body wash, shampoos, conditioners and lotions. We felt so special. Our favorite dining spot was on the 2 outside decks with a full view of the mountain range! At night we enjoyed star gazing and games under the propane deck heater. Their location was close to everything we wanted to do: Cave of the Winds, Garden of the Gods, Pike's Peak, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Cheyenne Mtn Zoo, Helen Hunt Falls, Silver Cascade Trail, Rainbow Falls, St. Mary's Falls, Red Rock Canyon Open Space -Section 16, Hiking, hiking, hiking! One hour away was: Catamount Falls, Crags Trail, Florissant Fossil Beds, Horsethief Falls, Guffey Falls, Denver Airport, Denver Aquarium, Denver Nature & Science Museum, Cadet Chapel and Casa Bonita. We would recommend this VRBO for a wonderful Colorado Springs area "Home away from Home." We were definitely spoiled by the wonderful accommodations. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and making us feel very welcome!

Wonderful as always

  • 4 of 5

We are there every summer - the house is perfect for my family of 3 people and 2 dogs, the backyard is peaceful, the location is close to everything. This year the roof was under construction, so there were some drips in the kitchen, but being fixed promptly.

Very well equipped house in central location. Owner very responsive to inquiries.

  • 5 of 5

This house was literally a home-away. Kitchen had everything we needed to do our own cooking, bathrooms had first aid supplies, board games in dining room closet and mini kid beds in bedroom closets. Easy to get to down town, old Colorado city and freeway. Space well used. Rooms are cute and cosy. Beds and pillows comfortable. Deck perfect for brunch and BBQ. Owner quick and gracious with all communication.

Charming house in cute neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this house. The neighborhood was nice, and very walkable, which is important with our dog. As an added bonus, they were filming a Netflix movie two blocks from the house with Jane Fonda and Robert Redford. Exciting stuff! This house is very convenient to area attractions, with Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, the Seven Falls, and Cave of the Winds being less than a half hour away. We saved so much driving time by being right in the area.

The home is updated with many high end features, especially in the kitchen. The house contained many "extras" that really added to our stay. Having things like foil, baggies, spices, condiments, laundry detergent, toilet paper, shampoo (and the list could go on and on) present in the home was a great thing, and not always the case with rental houses.

The view of the mountains from both the front porch and the top of the hill in the back yard was quite stunning. That is also the view from both upstairs bedrooms. There are two decks in the back yard that made a good "hang out" place. However, there were also cactus in the back yard, which was a bit worrisome for our dog who is quite nosy. Luckily he didn't get a big thorn in his paw.

The set up of the house is a little odd. It appeared to have originally been a small cottage with different rooms added on over time. The upstairs bedrooms had a "jack and jill" bathroom which did not allow for a lot of privacy as the doors for the bathroom are "barn" style doors so didn't seal tightly. It was fine for our family but might be a problem for non-relatives.

Future renters should be aware that the downstairs two bedrooms have very firm, futon style mattresses which may not be suitable for many, especially those of a more mature age. Again, this was no issue for us as we only used two bedrooms.

In summary, we really enjoyed our time in this home. It was clean and well equipped, and as mentioned, so convenient to the area attractions. The rental process was easy and hassle free, and we would definitely come back if we visit this area again. Thanks for a great experience and for sharing your cute house!
