About Tim

33 year old healthcare professional, native to Colorado, and enjoy every bit of our beautiful state. I love to travel and do it a lot for work and for pleasure with my beautiful wife. We book vacations almost once a month and understand the little things that make for a great, memorable stay. We love hiking, camping, and snowboarding in CO, and we love checking out new cities around the world. We have favorites in many continents (Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America). In Denver, we're so thrilled to try new restaurants as the food scene continues to thrive and so many great restaurants are in Uptown or right around the corner.

Tim purchased this condo in 2008

Why Tim chose North Capitol Hill

I had several criteria when purchasing my first home. The two at the top: 1) Character; a mix of old and new. I love historical homes built with quality craftsmanship that is hard to find today. Original wood, crown molding, pocket doors, chandeliers. I was looking for a single family home but when I walked in this condo for the first time, I instantly fell in love. There's a 'grand' feeling about the place. 2) Location. I wanted an urban, safe, walkable neighborhood with restaurants and parks all around. This location is perfect and we hope our guests enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Although the building has much of the original character from 1890, you'll be shocked by the comfort of the tank-less/instant hot water shower. You'll want to install one in your own home. If you're staying in the city, no need to rent a car. Cabs, Uber, Lyft, rental-bikes, all plentiful on 17th Ave.

Beautiful Home in a Great Denver Location!

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we wanted and more during our stay in Denver! The home was absolutely gorgeous with tall ceilings and unique fixtures. Once we put our daughter to bed for the evening, we enjoyed having some beverages on the front porch and people watching. You can walk either direction on 17th Ave. and find numerous local restaurants and bars that all have such a wonderful atmosphere! We had a rental car, and the parking spot in the back was just perfect! We loved staying here, and highly recommend it!

Great Location To Denver Downtown And Restaurants

  • 4 of 5

The condo was is a great building just over a mile from downtown and Denver's Botanical Gardens. There were plenty of wonderful restaurants on the street, even a vegan restaurant that we went back to a couple times.

Fabulous Place and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo for an entire month and could not have been happier with my choice. Tim, the owner, was very responsive to my questions while I was searching for a place. That was just one of the reasons I ended up choosing this condo. He was just as responsive when questions came up during my stay.

Personally, I had a list of must-haves for a place and this place had them all including designated off-street parking (gated lot was a bonus), in-unit washer and dryer, reliable and fast internet, happening and safe neighborhood. Other things that were not necessary requirements but helped me make my decision include a dishwasher, fireplace, fitness room, bathtub (love bubble baths).

The fitness room isn't fancy but got the job done and I didn't have to go find and pay for a local gym. There's weights, treadmill and elliptical. The only complaint I have about that room is it's warm so dress lightly. I mostly used the elliptical and it's a nice machine.

Just about everything I mentioned is already in the listing so no surprises there but I will confirm that the listing is accurate. Everything is as promised and Tim was easy to work with. This is only the second time I've rented on VRBO so I did have some anxiety but certainly didn't need to in this case.

The house is charming, full of character, walking distance to lots of good food and attractions, clean. The neighbors I spoke with were friendly and helpful. I honestly can't think of anything negative to say and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Perfect for Christmas celebration

  • 5 of 5

The listing was accurate, but in-person this property was even more charming! We were there over Christmas, and enjoyed the cozy living room and spacious dining room. Everything was well maintained, and when we had a question, Tim was super responsive. The kitchen is pretty tight, but we managed with no problems. It was great to have off-street and secure parking. In warmer weather, the porch would be super fun! We walked most places, even to 16th Street Mall. Highly recommended.

Large condo in Historic building in Uptown Neighborhood just east of Downtown Denver

  • 5 of 5

In town for a graduation. Location was perfect for our stay. This is a very diverse lively neighboorhood with lots of restaurants and within a short walking distance to downtown Denver. The condo has two levels, with both bedrooms on lower level. It was spotless and very quiet. It had every amenity needed for our stay. Loved having our own washer/dryer in unit. The owner was very cooperative in helping with arrangements.
