About the property

2,800 sf home with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths

Charming 110-year-old brick home overlooking Downtown Boulder and the Flatiron Mountains available for stays of 3 nights or more. A stone's throw from Pearl St and the Boulderado Hotel, the house is within walking distance of pretty much everything Boulder has to offer.

The home is fully-furnished, fully-stocked, with a king bed in the master bedroom suite, an American Leather fold-down king in the guest room, a queen and two singles in the kids' room and another single in the 2nd floor guest bedroom. There's a garden and porch in the front of the house, and a rear deck and parking for two cars in the carport.

The City of Boulder officially restricts occupancy to no more than four unrelated parties, but each family and/or couple counts as one party. So we can accommodate up to 9 guests, as long as some of you are related to one another.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed at this place twice with my wife and three children. It's open floor plan on the main floor is very warm and comfy. Our host, Alex, was responsible, prompt and accomodating. The interior decorating is a pleasure, including artistic reminders of the 60's and 70's. The location is superb, a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of Pearl Street. You cannot go wrong here.

Lovely Stay in the Heart of Boulder

  • 5 of 5

The house rental was as advertised in the pictures. It was clean, well-maintained, and very spacious. Our group had 5 people and we all had our own bed. The house is just a short walk from Pearl Street and there are some lovely hikes not too far away as well. The owner and property manager were very responsive to all our needs and made sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend this place and would absolutely stay here again!

Perfect for our boulder stay

  • 5 of 5

The charm and location of this property is absolutely unbeatable--a stone's throw from the Pearl Street mall in a picturesque, historic neighborhood. And that view!! We had a very comfortable 10-day stay at this property for back-to-back weddings and felt so at home here. The house was clean and well stocked with the necessities and there's plenty of space for a large group. The relaxing outdoor areas are a fantastic bonus. Holly was very responsive and very accommodating. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Excellent time in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable house is in a prime location to access all that downtown Boulder has to offer, great restaurants, interesting shops and a fun farmer's market. Owner was easy to contact and very responsive. We especially appreciated how well stocked the house was with basics. Plenty of paper towels, toilet paper, dish washing supplies, kleenex, and even liquid soap at every sink. Having rented a wide range of properties across the country, this thoughtfulness by the owner is not all that common and was much appreciated. Loved our stay in Boulder and would definitely rent this property again.

Fantastic visit!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this home - Alex was super responsive and the location cannot be beat in Boulder. We walked to everything - down to Pearl Street, to the Ideal Market, to the parks etc. It was so much fun and we couldn't have asked for a better visit. We will definitely try to stay here in the future- our kids and us loved it!

House for Ironman Boulder

  • 5 of 5

I was visiting Boulder for the first time to do Ironman boulder and this home was wonderful. Just a few blocks from downtown so we could walk most of the time. It was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. If I ever visit out there again this is definitely a place I'd stay at again.
