Why Owner chose Old Colorado City

What makes this House unique

A real home without the fuss
I needed a place for myself and 2 teenaged grandchildren during our recent visit to Colorado Springs. After talking with friends I decided to focus in Old Colorado City. We have always stayed in hotels and thought we would do so again. However, again friends intervened and suggested I rent a home through VRBO. I was leery but tried it. It was an incredible experience. Easy. The home was as described. The neighborhood was delightful and the teens loved walking to a nearby park to play a soccer. Even better they had a great time shopping in all of the small locally owned stores and restaurants. Closeness to the freeways made it easy to visit area attractions.
The home is in a neighborhood of smaller 1900 homes. Most are lovingly cared for. Ours has been updated with a very nicely appointed kitchen (making it so easy to keep ever hunger teens fed without the expense of restaurants). New washer and dryer were welcome pluses. The teens loved the big TV. Beds are very comfortable and even better,for me, no knickknacks to worry about. The inclement weather kept us from the yard. But it is generous and has a small but what looked to be a good barbecue area. And there is a good front porch which would have been used had it not been cold and rainy.
The owner, John, appears to have thought about almost everything except reading lamps. He responded almost immediately when I had questions before our arrival and after. I definitely give him a 5star rating.
I don’t foresee another visit in the near future but if I did return I would hope to return to this home in this neighborhood. Good job John. And good job VRBO.
A great property, located near Old Colorado City. Bancroft Park only 2 blocks away always seem to have things going on at the weekends, love the Saturday Market. Try the Art Walk first Friday of every month, don't bother to have any tea, there's so much free food, excellent evening. Nice view from the front porch, of the Pikes Peak mountain range, despite the hot weather the house was always cool. Well equipped kitchen, good bedroom, love the walk in wardrobe, renovated bathroom and still has the original flooring. You have got everything here. Owner John, answered any question usually within the hour by email. We really did have a wonderful 5 weeks here.
Great vacation place to explore
Would definitely stay again if in the area. The house had everything we needed. It is located close enough to all attractions and really close to the downtown shops.
Great location and within walking distance from restaurants!
The property was very cute and the perfect size for our family of 5. We had some wildlife visitors when we first arrived as 3 deer were in the side yard which was really cool to see them so up close. I ranked it 4 stars due to the A/C. I may have misread the description but it has 1 window air unit for the A/C. While we were there it was up in the high 90s. So the living room and dining room were cool,however the bedrooms weren’t as cool and it was quite warm to sleep. There are ceiling fans in each room, which helped, but it wasn’t as cool as I’d like it. Otherwise the property was excellent and had everything we needed.
Darling home in the middle of everything!
We were in love with this little home. We had 5 people, 3 adults and 2 kids and there was plenty of space for all. The window ac unit was a huge plus so the house stayed very cool which was great bc we had some hot weather during our stay. Beds were very comfy, my kids even said the pull out couch was comfortable. Kitchen had anything and everything you would need. Anything we didn’t think of it was here. I highly recommend this home for your stay. If we make it back to Colorado Springs we will be back to this home. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your home.
