About Betty Bowles

I am an outdoor enthusiast and love living here in CO. I currently have a contract job which places me in Anchorage, Alaska - yet another wonderful place!

Betty Bowles purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Betty Bowles chose Colorado Springs

I bought this place because of its location close to my favorite hiking areas and the local swimming pool. I also felt that the outside appearance of the homes and that he floorplans of the living space were quite appealing. I actually modified the living space a bit to make it more open. Tear down the wall! In fact, I did most of the remodeling of the townhome to fit my style. Growing up, I lived in a Frank Lloyd Wright style home and really enjoyed the emphasis on nature which was brought into the design of the home. You will find some of those influences in my modelling and decorating. I used a lot of stone, wood floors, and open space to create a warm and inviting environment. I believe that you will enjoy the style and comfort in which this home is designed.

What makes this townhome unique

The location is quiet and serene. Deer meander over the property (eating my flowers and bushes!) and are interesting to watch. There is a turkey and chickens living nearby that you can hear every once in a while in the distance. It is close to all the attractions, yet not in the middle of all of the chaos that comes with summer tourism. It is really just a pleasant place to be.

Nice place with all of the amenities you'll need.

  • 5 of 5

The place is very clean and well kept, and furnished with everything you'll need for your stay. Located close enough to downtown to walk or take a short drive. Conveniently located near a lot of other attractions as well. I'd recommend this place for anyone coming to Manitou.

A great location!

A beautiful townhouse, very nicely decorated with a very well stocked kitchen. Very close to all the places we wanted to visit. We would definitely recommend this townhouse.

Pretty a the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We loved our little weekend home! It was clean, quiet and centrally located to everywhere we wanted to go. I have wanted to see the mountains all my life making this a great vacation spot. I would recommend this home to anyone. If you are looking for a Colorado vacation home that is reasonably priced, has a mountain view, beautifully decorated and sleeps 4 adults comfortably then stop looking! You just found it.

Nice condo

  • 3 of 5

The condo is very nice and Bette, Jim & Ginger were all easy to work with. The location is wonderful; so convenient to so many things. The reason I'm not giving the condo a higher rating is the lack of air conditioning or any cooling devices. Unfortunately I was there for 5 nights with hotter than normal weather in July. The master bedroom upstairs was impossible to cool off even with the ceiling fan running 24/7. I ultimately had to sleep on the sofa downstairs.

Map

Manitou Springs is a little mountain resort town nestled at the bottom of Pikes Peak. It has all the charm of the high mountain towns, but enjoys a lower elevation, 6500 ft, nicer weather, and close to COS and major airport. It is surrounded by great parks and the peak which provides rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, many historical and geological place to explore. One can hike, drive, or take the cog railway to top of Pikes Peak. Other adventurous activities such as white water kayaking, skiing, boarding, snowmobiling, hot springing are all day trips away.

Pet Fee $50
Refundable damage deposit $200
Tax Rate 11.03%

1. Guests are held responsible for ANY and ALL damage done to the home. There is a $200 refundable cleaning deposit. (See Quote as damage deposit). The deposit is to ensure that if any extra cleaning is required, it is covered. The cost of any other types of damage to the property will be the responsibility of the guests renting. Costs will be collected from the deposit, and/or levied against the guests as required. No one expects this to happen, but expenses must be covered and I want to be upfront about how. Guests may opt for a PDP policy when negotiating the contract. The bottom line is that I am sharing my home, please take care of it while you are visiting.
2. Guests are responsible to clean up after themselves and leave the property as it was found. That is, the kitchen and dishes should be clean, trash collected, dirty sheets and towels gathered into laundry baskets. Additional cleaning will be charged and taken from the deposit if this is not done.
3. Greeters will be your point of contact during your stay. They will meet you upon arrival, introduce themselves and give you their contact info, show you through the property, answer any questions, and provide you access to the home. They will be by on trash day to take the trash bins out of the garage for the collectors (currently TH morning). Please collect your trash for the bins at this time. They will also take care of outside watering of the plants. Inside, water sparingly. Finally, the greeters will also do a walk through of the property before the guests leave on the last day. For longer than 1 week visits, the greeters will perform a quick walk through to stock supplies and check on the premises once/week. This time will be negotiated with the guests so that someone may be present when the greeters enter the premises.
