About Elena

Hi, I am Elena. I've lived in Colorado for more than 8 years, after moving here from Costa-Rica. Before that, I lived in Boston ( business school) and Russia. As you can imagine, I love traveling, meeting new people and discovering new places. So far, I've visited more than 30 countries ( if you don't count Caribbean cruises). I would be happy to show you around. You are welcome to ask me about the area attractions, wineries, downhill skiing, yoga, hot springs and golf courses. I own a PR agency and contribute to several media outlets on the topics of startups and technological innovations. I work from home so, will be available, if you have questions.

Elena purchased this house in 2004

The perfect quick overnight!

  • 5 of 5

We only came in for one night, to see a concert at Red Rocks. This place is the perfect location! It's close enough to the venue for an easy drive, and far enough away in a quiet neighborhood to relax. The entrance is around back through the gate. Also, you are less than 5 minutes to the trailhead for North Table Mountain, a quick access for a morning run or hike! Thank you for a great midweek escape!!

2 out of 5 stars

  • 2 of 5

This place is modern, chic & well kept. Elena was very kind but unfortunately this was a poor experience. Wifi was terrible when connected & would often flip on/off so watching television was difficult as well. Inside shower curtain is not long enough & water went all over the bathroom floor and required clean up each time. Extra comforter in bedroom had a blood smear on it, owner acknowledged the issue but did not remove it. Being in the basement means there were constant noise from above. At night we could also hear critters in the walls and attic. Washer & Dryer is accessible but not in the personal space rented. Towels were old and overused- was only given 1 towel, 1 hand towel for a 4day/3 night stay.

Construction to build "Little Homes" in the backyard. Not a comfortable place to relax.

Owner's Response: Too bad the guest didn't care to discuss these problems with me during her stay. The only thing she mentioned was blood on the comforter. I apologized and suggested using another one available in the closet. We try to provide maximum privacy to our guests and don't go to their space unless asked. After they had left, we examined the comforter and found a less than an inch long tiny spot of blood (on a colorful king size comforter)! Of course, we washed it. Not sure what kind of noise we created considering that I live with my husband. He works untill 11 pm. I work on a computer, and we don't have any guests in the house. We are building ONE tiny house which is located at the back of the backyard, not close to the main house. And we work only several hours a week INSIDE of it. Most of our guests enjoy checking it out. The shower curtain is a standard size. Washer and dryer ARE in the space rented. The towels are less than a year old and we have additional towels available if the guests need them. I am sorry it was a bad experience and hope that next time the guest will find a place that would better satisfy her.

A clean private space large enough for the family

  • 4 of 5

Nestled in a residential community but not too far from the highway or college where our activities were centered, the site worked very well for us. Plenty of room for the 6 of us, although 2 slept in the living area. The temperature was controlled by the owner but we were provided with space heaters in case we were a little too cool but the weather for the most part cooperated and we were comfortable using the blankets provided. Overall a very good experience.
