Property description

Welcome to Colorful Colorado!

"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands." Isaiah 55:12

Why we do what we do: As parents of three daughters (soon to be four), we are always concerned for our family above all else. We are concerned about their safety, comfort, and happiness.

While on a vacation, my wife and I are especially aware of these concerns and consistently desire our family to create safe lasting memories as well as to experience the best possible time while doing so.

After personally experiencing VRBOs and hotels that seemed to take away ( detract?) from our family vacations, we wanted to ensure that families who came to our VRBO home, enjoyed something different.

That's why our family promise is to only list (offer?) homes in the best locations-- with the best (conditions?) a VRBO can offer. We firmly believe that if we (can't) live in the home happily ourselves, we wouldn't (won't) expect you to do so.

When you choose to stay at our VRBO home, you have our personal promise that your family will feel welcomed, loved and cared for--all from family you never knew you had---in Colorado Springs.

Our family also owns and operates another VRBO property called Colorful Colorado, (please see listing #455571,) and read our outstanding reviews! Colorful Colorado North is our NEWEST VRBO property, located in the desirable north Colorado Springs area.

Built in 2013, it is a brand new home offering amazing views of Pikes Peak and the entire front range mountains. Situated in a comfortable and inviting neighborhood, with a playground directly behind the property, and a large park in front of the property, make this an ideal choice for families.

***WE ARE 5 MINUTES FROM THE AIR FORCE ACADEMY!!! North or South Gate entrances are only 5-6 minutes away!***

Three levels offer plenty of space to spread out. With three bedrooms upstairs, and another bedroom in the basement, we can comfortably sleep up to 7 people.

The master bedroom retreat offers a king size bed with a new Simmons Beautyrest Anniversary pillow top mattress, and a large en suite bathroom with a raised height vanity, double sinks, and very large walk in spa shower for two with double shower heads!

In addition to the master bath, we have two full bathrooms, each with their own bath tubs and shower, (conveniently located near each bedroom,) and a guest bath off the main level entry.

Beautiful, dark hardwood floors on the entire main level. Ebony stained cabinets, stair railings, and fireplace mantle. Ten foot ceilings in the large, open concept kitchen, dining room, and great room. 9 foot Pottery Barn table with 8 very colorful chairs to seat everyone for dinner. (Each chair was chosen by a member of our family as "their favorite color," - we invite you to pick your favorite as well!) We also have four grey counter height chairs at the breakfast bar. Brand new Lazy Boy sofas, ottomans, and arm chair. Vintage 1960's piano available for guest use. Upgraded features throughout including plush carpeting, lighting, extra tall garage door, and covered window wells for safety. In case of a rainy day, the new smart TV has access to local cable and thousands of Netflix movies. We have a great selection of family friendly Xbox 360 games to play together on our XBOX 360! We encourage family days spent outside enjoying the beauty of the region, with relaxing nights in by our beautiful gas fireplace.

We LOVE kids. (We have a few of our own!) We have a large basement recreation room designed specifically for them! It has EVERYTHING fun to keep kids active and happy! Kids love to sit on the lime green leather chairs, and read a favorite classic book from our kid's library. Or play hop scotch - rain or snow, right in their very own playroom! (The basement wet bar is still being completed and will soon become the perfect spot to grab a refreshing bottled water or apple juice box with your kids!) We have Fisher Price Little People toys, kitchen play dishes and food, shopping cart, games and puzzles all nicely organized and easy to put away. If you have children ages 3+ and up, this is the perfect room for them!

Laundry room on the same level as the bedrooms, with brand new Whirlpool Cabrio washer and dryer available for guest use, with laundry detergent provided.

Large two car garage with door code available for guest use.

Just a few of the things we provide in our rentals that no other rentals do:

1. New towels every 6 months.
2. New bed linens every 6 months.
3. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair spray, hand soap, cotton balls, q-tips, hand lotion, kleenex, body lotion, make-up remover wipes, hairdryers, and toilet paper. (Believe it or not, most rentals don't provide toilet paper. They request you bring your own!)
4. We supply paper towels, dish and laundry detergent, and basic kitchen spices.
5. A clean team that is within the family. We take pride in our rentals, because they are our homes. We ensure that each rental is cleaned thoroughly and "little touches" of hospitality are felt by each guest.
6. We really care that you have a wonderful experience. Many other rentals are offered only for certain weeks a year, and the owner has very little experience in maintaining a quality VRBO. We have 3 years of expertise in running a VRBO. We are thankful for the 100+ guests we have had the privilege to meet and have stay again with us!

Check in as early as 4PM, and check out as late as 10AM.

"I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains." Psalm 121: 1,2

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are natives to Colorado Springs. We have three young children who love being outdoors, and exploring new places. We enjoy hiking, swimming, and traveling. Our vacation rental home is a reflection of our love for family, and our love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We live in town, and can offer lots of suggestions on where to eat, play, and have fun as a family! Last summer we were selected for the cover of Focus on the Family's July issue of Thriving Family. Your stay continually benefits the cost of our adoption of our little girl, Esther, from China. We thank everyone who has supported our family and rental by staying with us!

Why the Owner Chose Northgate, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
The Colorful Colorado North property was built in the Wildwood Ridge neighborhood in 2013. Deemed Colorado Springs most up and coming area with the best restaurants, shopping, and access to all Colorado Springs has to offer is all within a stones throw. We enjoy the comfort of our kids growing and playing together in the safety of this family friendly neighborhood. With little to no crime, clean, large parks, and great views of Pikes Peak, we love living here! Come and see why. You will not want to leave!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wake up to views of Pikes Peak from the comfort of your bed. Feel the warm Colorado sunshine streaming in the large windows, greeting you with anticipation for the days adventures exploring this amazing city! We are only 5 minutes from the Air Force Academy. 1 minute from Compassion International. 5 minutes to The Promenade Shops at Briargate. 2 minutes to I-25. You and your family will love this home! All of the comforts mom and dad would enjoy, plus all of the fun and entertainment kids love. Anytime you stay at our properties the proceeds go directly to support the adoption of our fourth daughter from China. Help us bring Esther home in 2015, and enjoy rejuvenating family time as well.
