Nice flat in nice neighbourhood but not well entertained and managed
Actually, the flat is quite nice. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine and tumbler, fridge, microwave, toaster... There is room for two adults; (for four if you are still really in love.) (I am not quite clear, where the fifth person is meant to stay.)
The combo apparently belongs to an elderly man, and is rented when he is away (or he is away, when it is rented?). It is managed by his daughter, who is a busy businesswomen and apparently has little time left for hospitality.
So, if you stay only for a weekend, and/or are not great cooks and really flexible as regards household equipmnet and cleanness, you might be quite well. Otherwise the daily infrastructure you might expect (e.g. enough coat hangers, bathtowels, dishwashing soap and brush, dishtowels) is rather minimal/non-existing or in bad shape (saucepans, frying pans). In the kitchen cupboard there was absolutely no space for our own provisions, because it was stuffed with a lot of (quite old) things; the fridge was clean, but not empty (no idea where the things came from). Apparently a cleaning lady had passed before our arrival; but the flat was at most superficially clean; but in parts simply badly entertained.
I am aware that the rent is not expensive - and so not too much can be expected. Yet, basic hospitality does not cost much and makes you feel much more welcome.
I attempt to make the listing as detailed as possible. It's a 2 bedroom condo. The master has a queen bed (sleeps 2), the second bedroom has a full/double bed (sleeps 2 if 'still in love'), and there's a couch if you wanted to sleep a 5th person.
The owner, my dad, was born in '49, which makes him 67 yrs old, not sure if that's considered 'elderly'?..... And I do manage it for him, and I am a busy business woman and mother. When this guest advised me approx. 10 days before her scheduled arrival date that she was arriving 6 days after her scheduled arrival date, I credited her for the 6 days (I don't know how many other VRBO owners/managers would do that). I was, however, unable (unwilling) to make a similar accommodation when she advised me that she was departing several (4?) days early.
As of this writing, this unit has been rented out a approx. 8 times. This was the first tenant that ever had any issue. The issues communicated were a lack of 'tea towels' (wtf is a 'tea towel'?), lack of bath towels, limited kitchen cabinet storage space, and "unusable" pots & pans. I made arrangements to come to the unit the next day before 1pm, and while in route (before 1pm) to be told to come after 6pm.... Upon arriving at the unit I pointed out the bath towels and dish towels in what would be considered normal storage areas for such items. Not sure if these folks were planning on running to Costco or what, but there seemed to be adequate storage space in the kitchen cupboards. The pots and pans in question didn't have completely flat bottoms (slightly 'buckled'), certainly not "completely unusable" as characterized by this guest.
Rent and hotel costs in the Denver metro area is quite costly, and many are not 420 friendly. If you need the best of the best, there are certainly other rental units available for 25-50% more than the cost of this unit. If you consider yourself 'low maintenance', know where to look for kitchen and bath linens, don't need to store a months worth of provisions, and are ok with slightly buckled pots and pans, this unit will be fine for you.
