About Paul and Joyce Hofemann

Paul and Joyce were married in 1997 and have three children, twin girls and a son. After living in California and New York we moved to Austin, Texas in 2007. Recently we visited Colorado to escape the Texas summer heat and fell in love with Estes Park. We decided to purchase a second home in this beautiful area for our personal getaway as well as offer it as short term vacation rental for others who want to enjoy the Rocky Mountains.

Paul and Joyce Hofemann purchased this house in 2015

What makes this house unique

Parking downtown is nearly impossible during peak summer months. Our property is within walking distance of downtown while still in a quiet, natural setting of a golf course. Elk frequently pass thru our backyard to get to their favorite meeting spots on this golf course.

Great property close to town but quiet too.

  • 5 of 5

Our second time at this vacation rental. So convenient being walking distance to town and just short drives to any of the national park entrances. Liked the quietness it provided being on the golf course- although it was noisy at times in the fall but wonderfully so as the bull elks hung out close by and bugled. The house had all the amenities needed and we appreciate the owner allowing our small dog to stay.

Relaxing stay in the Rockies

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this home in Estes Park. The house was updated nicely and comfortable for our family of five plus our little dog. This home is in a great location, very close to everything. In addition, there were beautiful views from every window. We loved watching the wildlife on the golf course and in the back yard! The home is perfect for families like ours with teenage children-plenty of room to spread out and the extra room in the lower level was a nice bonus. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you!

Clean, comfortable, well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

This is a nicely designed home, quiet inside and out. It is clean, with a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. The proximity to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park makes it the perfect location for a vacation for all ages. And going through PayPal is a safe and professional way to rent.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 11 lovely days in this beautiful home. The living areas were so comfortable, plenty of comfy seating and enough room to have privacy when the need struck. The greatest part was being on the 9 hole Estes golf course. We were entertained every day by the variety of wildlife that wondered through the area. It felt like we were in a live zoo full of gentle creatures. We saw lots and lots of elk, deer, rabbits and on one occasion, a coyote. The kitchen was modern and large enough for all the cooks and helpers in our party. It is conveniently close to downtown and the local grocery store. We had such a good time it was hard to leave. We hope we get a chance to return soon.

Thanksgiving Weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for 4 nights over Thanksgiving. The house is immaculate and very well appointed. We woke up the first morning to about 6 inches of fresh snow. We loved walking all around the area with our family and dog. The owners were most helpful and extremely responsive to any e-mails. Everything was in great working order TV's, Wi-fi, heater and all appliances. We appreciated being able to bring our dog with us. I can see the would be a perfect location year round. The location to town was perfect. I would highly recommend this home. We had a perfect Thanksgiving. Thanks.

Great House, Fun Times for All (even the dog)

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Estes 6 or 7 times with our large family and this rental house was our favorite. It is renovated and very nice on the inside: comfortable beds, linens, couches, patio furniture, etc.

Our older children liked that they could walk into town on their own quickly. Our dog liked watching the elk on the golf course off the patio.

The Hoffman's were great to work with and even made sure to take care of all the details: letting us know maids were done early so we could check in early, letting us know about Kuerig, helping return a flat iron left, etc.

I will be retiring here some day, so usually like to stay at different ones, but this one was nice, we will do a repeat next year.
