Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Mountain and City views! 1/4 size basketball court

Welcome to beautiful Colorado! We invite you to take in the exceptional (unobstructed) Rocky Mountain views and the cityscape of Northern Colorado Springs that our home has to offer. There are many charming and decorative rooms with an array of colors, which flow throughout. You will find the atmosphere to be warm, peaceful and relaxing.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need. Start your morning with a cup of coffee, as well as reading a good book in the spectacular “view room" observing the gorgeous mountains. Next, enjoy breakfast on the large (500 sq. ft.) back deck while taking in the fresh Colorado air and breathtaking views. After breakfast you may want to visit the "Garden of the Gods" park, which is only thirteen miles away. Head back to the house for a barbecue lunch on the deck. A grill, picnic table and chairs are available to you. The deck includes a water fountain, which adds to the outdoor ambiance. Included in our backyard is a quarter size basketball court and sandbox for your convenience. Work off your lunch by taking a walk to the neighborhood pond.

Before dinner take a short drive to the mountainside. The city views get better the higher up you go. Then enjoy a nice meal at our charming and formal dining room table. Afterwards move to the deck for coffee and dessert. As dusk settles and the sun drops behind the mountains, giving way to jaw dropping sights, light the fire pit and take in dazzling city night lights. Wind up your evening with a movie and popcorn in our family room. Take advantage of the brick gas fireplace. Or relax by soaking in the master suite garden tub.

Complete your day with a restful night sleep in one of the four comfortable bedrooms. We pride ourselves in providing an exceptionally clean environment; therefore you will receive superb cleanliness. We use natural/organic hand soap in all bathrooms and the kitchen.

VRBO has now provided a great platform to showcase our home, which gives us an opportunity to share our house with many others looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation getaway.

We invite you to experience our warm and lovely house with the magnificent view. It is uniquely situated on a hill in a quiet (family oriented) neighborhood. Within a short drive are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers and movie theaters. The Air Force Academy (south gate) is only 2.5 miles from here. We believe you will be taken in by the beautiful mountain views and our lovely, decorative, house.

Thank you for viewing our home!

About Ysela Erwin

I was born and raised in Texas, and eventually made my way to California where I met my husband. We left the beaches for the beautiful Colorado Rockies. We enjoy hiking, traveling, cooking, reading, road trips, walks. We have been involved in many outreaches in San Diego and in the Springs. We love meeting people from all over the nation.

Ysela Erwin purchased this house in 2008

Why Ysela Erwin chose Colorado Springs

We desired a home with a view. When we walked into the deck, we knew it was house we had prayed for. We have built wonderful memories with our family and friends, and expect that those who vacation here, will have the same experience.

What makes this house unique

Our house is positioned on a hill within a peaceful, safe, quiet neighborhood. The views are spectacular! There are walking paths which connect throughout surrounding neighborhoods. You will experience beautiful sunrises and sunsets. One will have a new appreciation for the song “America the Beautiful,” which lyrics were written by Katherine Bates in 1893 after visiting this city. The lyrics, “Purple Mountain Majesty,” will have a whole new meaning to those who visit. Because of the love and pride by which we decorated our home, we hope it is at the top of your seasonal rental list.

We all loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in Ysela's house in mid August. It was my husband and I, 15 year old son, 7 year old daughter, and my in-laws. We had plenty of room and Ysela has thought of everything. Need scissors? Found them. Cutting board? Got it. It was almost like being at home, but better with that amazing 2nd floor deck with the view of Pike's Peak. We spent every morning and evening out on that deck, soaking in the cool dry air. We loved the little fire pit/table combo as well. Im going to try to find one for our home.... The kids really enjoyed the basketball goal as well. Plenty of towels, and she provides laundry detergent, soap, paper towels, etc. It was just such a fun vacation and the house was icing on the cake. Would truly recommend.

Wonderful home - great place to hang out!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here while sightseeing in Colorado Springs. The home fit our needs perfectly! The Erwin's were wonderful people to rent from. Went the extra mile for us. We will highly recommend this property to friends and will stay here again if we need housing.

Perfect place to stay in Colorado Springs.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house. The owners were so accommodating. It was clean, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. A perfect view from the deck that we enjoyed every morning and night. The house is a great central location in that it is not too far from Denver and close to Colorado Springs.

Very Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay at this home. The owners were great to work with during the rental process. The views from the back deck are incredible. The interior of the home was spotless. The owner met us at the house when we checked in. Unlike a lot of rental homes (where the cupboards are empty), this home is fully stocked (even down to k-cups for the Kureig). The location is excellent as you are only a few minutes from Academy Blvd. - which has most every restaurant and store known to mankind. Even though it was much hotter than normal in The Springs, we enjoyed our visit.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and the views are amazing. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay as easy and homey as possible. As we left I told my husband I felt like I was leaving home. If we are ever back in Colorado Springs we will be staying here again and we will highly recommend our family and friends to stay here if vacationing here. Yesla and Mark were very nice and helpful throughout our stay and want to make sure that you are enjoying your stay.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

I was planning a trip to Colorado with 7 friends for my 30th birthday. When I came across this home, I knew I had found our destination. The view alone was the reason we decided on Colorado Springs. We planned our entire trip around this house. The house is absolute perfection. Plenty of space for all 8 of us to be super comfortable, big backyard, amazing deck with gorgeous view, quiet neighborhood. We were snowed in for an entire day but since we are from Miami, we had a blast playing in the snow. I definitely recommend this home!
