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.

We had a fantastic stay at this home.

  • 5 of 5

The location was great. Size was great. Beautifully decorated. Had everything we needed. Very clean. Comfortable beds. A little concern over having no ac. Those concerns quickly dispelled as soon as we opened the windows. Very cool and had a wonderful breeze everyday. Actually had to close at night, because it was a little chilly for us Texans. Loved the wildlife. My daughter saw a bear on her morning run. That was interesting, but ended well. The guys thoroughly enjoyed a day of golf. We would totally stay again. Hopefully we will be back again SOON!!!

Estes Park Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The location is great. We walked into town often. The house itself was nice but needs some minor updates. For example, the deck coating was flaking off everywhere. Overall however it was an excellent place for our family to gather.

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! Spacious, clean, beautifully furnished. The views were to die for and we often saw wildlife right off the porch.

This home is very well equipped with anything you may need.

Paul and Joyce were responsive and communicated well. We go to Estes every summer and should we return I will be looking to book this home again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time! It does seem like the elk like to use our backyard as a gateway to the golf course!

Perfect location, comfy house

  • 5 of 5

This house was in a perfect location in Estes Park—5 minute walk to downtown, 5 minute walk to Lake Estes, and 20 minutes to Rocky Mountain National Park. Views were gorgeous and there were daily wildlife sightings from the deck—elk, coyote, geese, and ducks. Most important, the house was extremely comfortable and provided enough space during rainy weather for 8 of us to lounge and relax without feeling crowded.
