About Russ Trook

My wife and I were long-time Colorado residents (NW suburbs of Denver, then Erie vicinity) but began spending the cooler season in Arizona. Our primary business is rental property...short-term vacation type, as well as residential...in both Colorado and Arizona. We manage all of our properties ourselves.

We are baby-boomers and immensely enjoy our home here in one of the Del Webb active adult resort communities in the Phoenix west valley (we're essentially year-round now in AZ).

Like all of those who lack inexpensive access to health insurance, we are waiting to see the unfolding future of health-care in America.

Russ Trook purchased this condo in 2005

Why Russ Trook chose Erie

We try to maintain a homey feel in the condo. It probably has a bit more than needed as far as furnishings and how it is equipped, but we want you to feel comfortable there. We encourage feedback if you notice something not being there that should be.

What makes this condo unique

We absolutely consider bookings of any duration, though very surprising to us, has been that the majority of our guest stays have been for month-long, or 2- or 3-month stays. Reasons for travel among our guests have been varied, though one reason stands out far more than others...retired couples visiting adult children and grandchildren who live in our locale. If you appreciate a visit without having to stay in THEIR home, this condo is for you! NO STEPS to climb, a second bedroom so the grand-kids can stay over if you want, and that 'home away from home' feeling.

Boulder proper is a unique experience. It offers many varied dining and entertainment opportunities. Pearl street, especially during summer, is a big attraction for nightlife. A few miles out, we have especially enjoyed Nissi's as a pleasant venue for musical groups (we like jazz but they book a variety). Dinner is small plate style so you can sample more than just one entree. Closer to the condo, in old town Lafayette, there are a number of delightful places to eat. We have enjoyed Efrain's (Mexican) on the east side of Public Road (main street) but be prepared to wait.

Very comfortable stay for 3 weeks.

Great place that is well furnished. We had no issues in the process and Russ (owner) is great to work with.

Owner's Response: We were happy to have Mike stay at our condo last month. He was actually a "special guest," being the first "online booking" we had after converting earlier this year. We intended to accept his booking immediately, but due to my lack of understanding of the new process, it took a few tries. Mike was more than patient. Humbling to me, as my goal has always been to provide a "no surprises" solution for guest accommodations. I have no excuse but to be a "pro" at this from now on.

Made our vacation great

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying at this condo, right across the street from the clubhouse, fitness room and pool. All accommodations were wonderful, the grocery store was right down the road so we were able to grab everything we needed for our stay.

Great location, I will definitely stay at this condo the next time we are in the area.

Thank you!!

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Colorado and truly enjoyed our stay. The host has great communication and offered wonderful helpful suggestions. Location is perfect, close to stores and day trips into the mountains. If you are looking for a quiet and comfortable place highly recommend this home. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: We were delighted to be the accommodation solution for Jeff. Very pleasant to work with, and Jeff was patient with us as he was only our second inquiry handled by "online booking." We're still learning how to do it correctly. He would be welcome back anytime! Russ

Great condo in a beautiful spot

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for one week while moving our daughter into her new house. Great spot and the condo was clean and well equipped. My grandsons loved the pool and playground and even spent a night in the spare room. The owner was great to work with and we enjoyed the area so much we have we bought a condo not far from this one. Five stars from us!

Owner's Response: We were delighted to be the accommodation for Elin and her family. I'm actually writing this response to her review almost a year later, only because I noticed a reference to "pet friendly" in the tag line in her review. I suspect this was included as a "canned" response to a check-box or similar and was an oversight. I felt I should just clarify that our condo is a no-pet, and no-smoking property. Again, the guest was a delight, and no problems were noted regarding their stay. Would love to have them again sometime. Russ

Convenient and comfy

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here 6 months. We found the condo to be convenient to most amenities (a new grocery store is opening about 5 minutes away soon) and especially enjoyed the miles of walking paths in the Vista Ridge area. This condo is across the street from a small work out area (cardio and machines), hot tub and pool. There are lots of small playgrounds for younger children.

The condo has two bedrooms both with large closets. Living/dining/kitchen worked for us (personal preference would have been a gas stove, but not big deal).

The owner was responsive to requests for updates to cookware and was readily available to answer questions.

The nearby Colorado National Golf Course/Clubhouse is open to the public for golf and the Friday night prime rib special is great!

Owner's Response: Truly our good fortune to have another in a long string of delightful folks needing a "home base" for a temporary work assignment or in this case while awaiting new home construction. We look forward to meeting Leslie and Phil the next time we pass through to drop off some house-hold items. Russ and Paula

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

cleaning fee $85
Refundable damage deposit $750

The rate structure we use doesn't blend perfectly into the VRBO Quotable Rates format. So please note:

Rates for 2 and 3 week stays, and our charge for extra persons, may be different (usually lower) than shown. Cleaning fees are typically $85 to $130, depending on length of stay, number of persons, and beds used.

There may be a rate premium for dates around the CU graduation and holidays. This does NOT affect my actual rates for longer bookings like a month. Quotable Rates will not reflect the premiums, so you will need to inquire.

Additionally our standard security deposit of $750 is increased to $1000 in certain cases (usually because of multiple month stays). It also my be lowered in some cases (very short stays).

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
