About Alexi Vaughn

Todd and I are both natives to Grand Junction. We are in love with the valley itself and National Monument, they have so much to offer. From running and mountain biking trails, to mountaineering and rock climbing, horseback riding and white water rafting/kayaking, to amazing golf courses.

Alexi Vaughn purchased this house in 2014

Why Alexi Vaughn chose Grand Junction

This property is special because it is located at the base of the National Monument with 360 degree views. Newly remodeled and very cozy. The location is very peaceful, quiet and safe. Yet, you are minutes away from amazing wineries, shopping and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

The view are very unique as well. You also have the ability to experience epic runs or rides from the front door on either your road or mountain bike.

Great Large Home close to Colorado National Monument

  • 5 of 5

We loved the large home near the Colorado National Monument. The four bedrooms were great for two small families. The living room and kitchen areas were very large and accommodated everyone comfortably. The Kitchen was up-to-date and stocked extreamly well. we did not have to bring extras for cooking. Everyone loved the large hot tube on the patio with a great grill. We had meals outside on the patio while enjoying a great view of the monument. There were only two bathroom/showers available as the third was being renovated in the basement. There was a third toilet next to the kitchen and laundry room.

The master bedroom was enormous with a nice deck off the bedroom with a great view of the monument. there was a separate TV/Video room adjacent to living room and kitchen. This is a great house for families. Very clean and updates to some areas in the home are in progress.

Not what we expected expected

  • 2 of 5

This is a half renovated home in a beautiful setting. What wasn't renovated, is very outdated...swamp coolers didn't do the job, no cable, carpets smell like a litter box. There is a garage next to the house...that evidently somebody lives in. The owner was very nice and wanted to be accommodating, however at that price point, I shouldn't need to hear from the owner. Plenty of other good options in GJ that we'll be using for our next trip.

Owner's Response: We accept responsibility for your stay not being enjoyable. We Could have been more detailed in explaining how to use the cable television and cooling systems, both were functioning properly at the time of your stay. We plan on having a professional assess the condition of the carpet and make improvements as needed. We continue to update areas of the property that need updating due to the age of the home. We appreciate your feedback and welcome you as guests in the future.

Terrific Site and Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great time on our vacation in Grand Junction. The house was perfect for us...plenty of room to spread out....quiet spaces and not so quiet spaces for kids and adults alike, beautiful scenery from every spot in the house, well equipped for what we needed.

In addition Alexi and Todd were very easy to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed.

The location made it easy to get to shopping and also close to Colorado Monument.

I hope that we will be able to stay there again very soon!
