About Sandra McCarthy

Hello there! I am a 4th generation Colorado native who continues to love our beautiful state and what it has to offer. Growing up with 9 brothers and sisters, I've seen a good deal of this great state sharing various interests with my family and friends. My son and I stay very active with the winter and summer outdoor activities so feel free to ask us about some of the areas best hiking, biking, skiing and hockey. My son is currently a student at Western State University in Gunnison and I am a Real Estate Agent working throughout Colorado. We hope you will enjoy our home and the surrounding area as much as we do.

Warm, Wonderful Walden 5 Bedroom, 3 Bath Home With Gourmet Kitchen

Absolutely beautiful home with a wonderful owner equals a perfect stay! Sandy thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for two weeks over Christmas and New Year's. The house had everything we needed and is situated in such a way that we had family dinners together and played board games in the open kitchen/dinning area but the bedrooms are spaced for enough privacy and sleeping inn. There was even room to sled in the yard - it snowed on Christmas day while we were here! Every member of our family said everything was perfect and most wanted to write their own letters of thanks. The fire places keep us all warm and toasty it was all perfect! I'd say that if we stay in Colorado again we will be staying at this house, however during our stay we discovered Sandy is a real estate agent and very knowledgeable of Colorado because she is a native... We are having her help us find a permanent home in Colorado! Thank you so much again Sandy!

Perfect for family of 5 adults

  • 5 of 5

We had to find a vacation home in less than 48 hours as Hurricane Matthew re-routed us from our original destination. The owner was very easy to work with and accommodating. The home was warm, clean, beautiful and well-equipped. The location was perfect for us as we could easily do trips to Denver, Colorado Springs and to several area attractions. There is not a tv In the main living space, which might be a draw back for some people. No tv in this space was perfect for us! We enjoyed sitting outside one night with a fire.

My husband & I stayed here in September & feel we should share some things that we didn't know from previous reviews.

My husband talked with Sandy & she was great to deal with, the house was immaculate and a great price, beautiful on the inside, great kitchen!!

The downside is this:

Stairs so steep it hurt my knees and I don't have a knee problem.

No AC, which was a big deal because it was hot while there & we aren't used to sleeping with open windows in a subdivision.

NO CURTAINS, except in bedrooms. I literally felt like a fish in a bowl for all the neighbors to see!

So many personal pictures everywhere & personal items to the point where we didn't even have drawer space for our belongings while there,.

Also it would have been nice to have a list of local attractions, grocery stores, etc. When you don't know the area, you don't realize that there is a town within minutes, that for some reason google doesn't list when looking for local grocery stores and restaurants.

A beautiful home, great price, owner is easy to work with, but definitely wouldn't have rented if we had known there were no curtains and that there are some close neighbors.

Simply amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this house over the summer and Sandy was amazing!!! We have four small kiddos and the house was simply perfect for all our needs! The neighborhood is safe and so quiet. There are walking trails and two lakes in the neighborhood! This was so fun for the kiddos. The rooms were all very comfortable and our kids loved the basement! Sandy was so wonderful to rent from and very easy going. We feel very blessed to have had an incredible summer in Colorado!!!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I decided to visit Colorado for the first time not knowing much on what to expect. From the arrival to the departure Ms.Sandra's communication with us was superb. Informing us about near by resorts and recommending places.The home offered many utilities that provided to our needs as far as entertainment , fireplace , and a big balcony to hangout outside. Very spacious rooms that allowed all to have their own privacy. Overall a memorable experience for me and my group , enjoyed it so much we decided to stay an additional night! I would like to thank Ms. Sandra for sharing her beautiful home with us and it was a pleasure meeting you;until next time.

Excellent place for a special getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a small family reunion with relatives who live nearby. This home was easy to get to and was very comfortable. The owner was incredibly attentive and even had a couple of bikes to use. Great time. Beautiful setting! Thanks!
