About Monika Jarvis
I was born and raised in Germany, met my british husband Terry in Belgium and together we have lived mostly in Vienna, Austria for over twenty years. That is where we raised our four children and where we fell in love with classical music, history and the beautiful mountains. We have moved to Colorado almost twenty years ago and are now american citizens.
Monika Jarvis purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Monika Jarvis chose Larkspur
We have always loved this area between Denver and Colorado Springs. The wide open space, the peaceful mesa's, the majestic view of Pikes Peak. In the summer we enjoy watching antelope occasionally we get to see a herd of 200 elk. There are white pelicans travelling through, swimming in a little lake, not to mention beautiful bluebirds, meadowlarks and hawks sitting on fence posts. As we enjoy the peace and quiet and beautiful nature here I am sure you will too. This is an ideal location if you are visiting family at the Air Force Academy or attending the Renaissance Festival in Larkspur. We are surrounded by many miles of Open Space, some of which is open to the public with bike and hiking paths. 3 miles from us, right off I 25 there is a very nice dog park. Garden of the gods in Colorado Springs is an unbelievable beautiful place to visit. You can just drive through, have a picnic, go on a horse ride or hike for hours. It is spectacular. Of course there is also Pikes Peak to visit where you can either take the cog rail or drive up. Many more attractions, cave of the winds, a waterfall etc. In Castle Rock you can climb the rock, go on the zip line or challenge yourself at the endless stair climb.
What makes this Apartment unique
We bought this property for its location and over the years have improved and basically rebuild it. The apartment is the latest addition to the property. It is a garden apartment, very quiet, private and peaceful, a place to get away from it all and yet only 5 minutes from I 25.

Wonderful stay and a lifetime of memories
My family and I stayed here for a month and just loved it. We are moving to the Springs area and needed a place to stay while checking things out. It was a great location for us because it is on the north side which is where we want to be. It did not take long to get anywhere in the Springs however. The little town of Monument is nearby. It was our favorite. We loved drinking our tea on the patio and using the fire pit for Smores. Our little boy had fun feeding the chickens and our dog loved the open space to run around. It was cozy, quiet, and beautiful. The views just driving down the street are breathtaking. The owners were so nice and accommodating. We had family that came to visit last minute and they rented out a room in their house to us. We had a medical emergency and their kindness will never be forgotten.
What a wonderful review Amanda, so kind of you. I so hope your hospital stay was super beneficial to your health.
It's almost Christmas and Terry and I wish you a merry Christmas, to your dad and mom too.
Let me know if you are coming back in Jan.
Great host - Comfy and clean - great value for the price
Monika is very accommodating and friendly. She goes the extra mile so your stay is exactly what you want. This was a great spot near hiking and rock climbing. It was clean and had all the basics. I would stay here again. The sofa bed is worn but then sofa beds are never comfy. There is a shelf as you come in the sliding door that is easy to bump your head on. We just slide the love set under the shelf and were good to go. There was a farmer market across the street called Windy Mesa Farms. It was open when we were there and the prices were fair. We enjoyed or stay. You can see the sunrise from the bedroom window which was nice.
Perfect view, very homey
We had a great stay at the house. They were very welcoming, the apartment was wonderful and clean. We had a great stay sitting on the porch in the afternoon and drinking tea. It was nothing less than perfect. Great place to stay.
Quiet and Homey!
It was nice to get away from noise and commotion. The apartment was off the beaten path and very homey and relaxing. Monika was very kind and friendly.
Such a beautiful and peaceful country home!
What a blessing to be able to stay on this property! Nice hosts and relaxing apartment. Peaceful to sit on the front porch and drink coffee on the morning. Our son loved feeding the chickens and playing fetch with their dog. Close to Monument, larkspur and Castle Rock. We had to do some business in the area but this place made the trip worth it!
Great little place that's quiet and a nice place to escape for a bit. Thanks
