Please read this description thoroughly before booking as many questions and concerns are addressed below.

IF YOU CAN'T FIND YOUR DATES AVAILABLE, PLEASE CHECK OUR OTHER LISTINGS (SHOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS DESCRIPTION). Also, check out our newest listing located in ChampionsGate, Florida-6 miles from Disney World.

When reserving, double check that the email address is correct or you will not receive email responses from VRBO and the owner will have no way of knowing that you are not receiving these. The owner ALWAYS sends a personal confirmation, if you do not see a message within 24 hours of booking, go into VRBO/Homeaway and verify that you entered your email correctly and look for messages from the owner.

You must be 22 years of age or older to rent/stay alone in this condo. We are very strict with this policy.

This condo was completely remodeled in 2016 from floor to ceiling and is located along a beautiful rock-face backdrop. It is in the heart of Estes Park just a block from Riverside Park and another block from the main shopping and dining in town. Enjoy a quick walk to the river or a short drive to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Beautiful 1-bedroom, 1-bath escape featuring a queen bed, queen sleeper sofa with comfy foam mattress and full kitchen (does not have a dishwasher). We have a pack and play for our youngest guests.

At the end of your busy day viewing wildlife at Rocky Mountain National Park unwind with cable TV, WiFi (note that mountain internet can be patchy), both a romantic interior electric fireplace and exterior (shared) gas fire pit. This building has shared patio spaces which include chairs, picnic tables and shared gas grill. While there is not a view from this downstairs condo all guests are welcome to walk up to the deck above and enjoy the Colorado sunshine and view from there.

This condo is ideal for a couple or a family with smaller children. While it is suitable for 4 adults, it is a smaller space and can be a bit tight.

This is a DOWNTOWN condo, this means that there could be traffic noise from the road. Most of our guests do not notice or mind but we like to be up front about it. The appeal to this location is its proximity to shopping and restaurants. In the busy summer parking can be difficult (it's easier the rest of the year), the nice thing here is that you can park once and use the free shuttle system that the city provides, making your stay so much more laid back. It is also a lower level unit which means some noise could be heard from condos above. If this is an issue this may not be the place for you.

Happy Family Rentals would like to treat you to one of the treasures of Colorado, Elkins Whiskey. Your first drink is our treat. You will get more info. on how to take advantage of this when you check into the condo.**If you choose to reserve, please tell us a bit about yourself. We are careful about who we rent to and like to know a bit about our guests. Thanks!

*Cancellation Policy: Cancellation refund of a 100% outside of 30 days. Then, 50% if outside of 15 days, with $50 charge for credit card processing that we are charged by VRBO If inside of 15 days you will forfeit your entire payment.Your deposit and cleaning fee will be returned to you. We recommend that you consider trip insurance if there could be a chance for late notice cancellation.


Check-in is 4pm and Check-out is 10am. Please do not ask for an early/late arrival/departure as it is rarely possible due to the schedule of our cleaners, especially in the summer. Owner will notify you if an early arrival is possible.

While there is parking at the condo building, it is limited and can be full in the busy season. We leave parking passes to the lot across the street for overnight parking.

There is no air conditioning as it is a garden level condo that is typically cool even in the warm summer months.

This unit does not have a washer/dryer.

There are occasional times when we need to enter the condo for a repair, to restock something for our cleaners, etc. We always do it during the day and always make an attempt to contact our guests beforehand but if we don’t get a reply, we may knock and if no one is there, let ourselves in to do the brief maintenance. If we get reports/complaints of rowdiness, smoking or pets, we will come check on our property without notice to the guest.

About Kelli Gambee

We are the Gambees, we live about an hour away and love our Colorado home in Estes Park. We enjoy downtown events and shopping after a beautiful day of exploring Rocky Mountain National Park.

Kelli Gambee purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kelli Gambee chose Estes Park

This unit is freshly remodeled and is very comfortable. You will find all new furniture, appliances, carpet, etc. Everything you need to feel at home.

What makes this condo unique

The best thing about this home, besides the comfortable living space is the short distance to everything downtown. Don't worry about trying to find a parking space in town once you're here, because you can just walk anywhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed at a Happy Family Rentals condo during a short winter getaway to Estes Park. The place was perfect for us! It was comfortable, clean, and modern with a rustic feel. We loved our stay and would definitely return!

Convenient, Cozy and Clean

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location between downtown and Rocky Mtn National Park. The condo is newly remodeled and is perfectly sized for a couple's retreat. Kelli and Tony made the check in process a breeze. We've stayed in a couple other condos in Estes over the years and none were as nice. The next time we stay in Estes Happy Family Rentals will be our first choice.

Cozy condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting RMNP while staying at this condo. The location was just fantastic, Estes Park was very walkable from here. Prior to staying we received a detailed welcome email with everything we needed to know about the unit, which was nice to read in advance because cell service can be spoty in the mountains. The unit was cute, very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. It would be a wonderful place for a couple to stay for a long hiking weekend. The description says its best for couples or families with small children and I would say that is spot on. Our 3 yo slept soundly in the quiet comfortable bedroom, while we toughed it out on the pull out bed. The pull out bedframe was a bit uncomfortable and squeeky (as most pull outs are). Still, this rental was awesome and we would 100% stay here again.
