Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Pet Fee $50
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $200
  • CLEANING (min 3 hours) $75
  • Tax Rate 11.03%

Notes:

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.

Location

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose West Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
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.
