About Nawal and Thomas

I am an engineer and my wife is an educator both working and living right here in beautiful Colorado.

Nawal and Thomas purchased this house in 2013

Why Nawal and Thomas chose South Central

My wife and I have both lived and traveled around the US and the world but there’s something about Leadville… it could be that I have strong ties because I was born and raised there for a short time or that many members of my family have at some point lived, worked and are buried in Leadville. My grandfather Doc Kehoe’s name humbly graces the plaque outside St. Vincent’s Hospital and my grandfather French managed and grew the Federal Fish Hatchery still operating just west of Leadville.

So I guess when the opportunity to purchase the Rugged came about, it was a no brainer. Though when we discovered the Rugged Victorian she was beat up, and in need of love and attention. From paint to flooring, blinds to bedding, we set up the Rugged as our home away from home and we are excited to share the Rugged Victorian and Leadville with you.

What makes this house unique

We love the high ceilings in the master suite, the bay windows in the first living area which boasts luxurious Victorian furnishings, and the skylight in the main living and upstairs bed room.

Hi Nawal and Thomas,

Just wanted to say we really enjoyed our stay in the Rugged Victorian a few weeks ago(Jan3-7). Loved the view of the mountains out the windows when it didn't snow. We had a great time skiing and coming to a warm place afterwards.Thank you also for all the little extras like the chips and bottle of wine and all the little items in the pantry. Also really liked the griddle and gas stove! The place was nice and clean and comfortable. Oh, some light bulbs needed changed in the refrigerator and over the stove. Would have done that but didn't see any light bulbs and those places usually take special bulbs. And the neighbors were great, keeping the side of the street scooped out for a place to put the car. Thanks again for a great place to stay. Hope we can come back another time.

Perfect spot for a low key family stay in CO mountains

  • 5 of 5

House had plenty of room for my entire family (6 adults and 2 kids). Rooms were spacious. Kitchen had everything we needed. Leadville was a pleasant surprise: Ski Cooper and skating rink and a great pizza place. Only feedback I would provide to owners was that they should post the check out procedures in the booklet. Nawal and Thomas were great and responsive owners. Highly recommend this spot.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you again! (Yes, good point, we will post check out procedures in the booklet! We removed the old ones and haven’t yet printed them out to add to the booklet!)

Great location, very nice owners, great house for visiting Leadville CO.

  • 5 of 5

We were coming to town for the Leadville 100 MTB Race and found the Rugged. I am so glad we did. Thomas and Nawal were great to work with. The house was perfect for us and had everything we needed. It is spacious and clean and the owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We hope to be back next year through the lottery process and will definitely want to stay again. A great place to stay when visiting Leadville !!

We had a great time this home was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We thought this home was perfect for us. We enjoyed it. It was spacious, clean, well decorated, kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pans, utensils, everything I needed to enjoy our stay. Once you stay in a home for your vacation you have a hard time going back to a hotel room. This was great and would do it again. Wonderful property, we needed some help working the Roku and the owners were very helpful.
