Guest access

My guests have access to everything located on the main level. This includes the kitchen, living, dining and family rooms, front porch and back patio. This EXCLUDES access to any bedroom other than your own, the garage and basement.

Interaction with guests

I live and do much of my work in the basement and therefore spend a great deal of my time there. I do love to visit with my guests but also give them their privacy. I take my cue from my guests as to how much they want to interact, some are more social than others. Many times we come and go at different times and I hardly see guests being I do live in the basement. Therefore if there are any issues that need to be addressed I may text you or leave a note.

The neighborhood

Only 15 miles from DIA. Close/easy access to multiple interstates. 3 miles from the Anschutz Medical Campus/University of Colorado Hospital/Children's Hospital. 1 mile from Buckley Air Force Base

The Aurora Mall is 2.5 miles from my home and various restaurants close by. I'm located 16 miles from Downtown Denver, 10 miles from the Cherry Creek area and shopping mall and 5 miles from Lowry. There are two 24 Hour Fitness locations nearby if you have a membership. Lady Fitness is a few blocks away as well as a new gym You Fit (circuit training) $10 down/$10 per month.

Getting around

Buses are easy access from my home. I am also located near major interstates. If you have a vehicle there is parking on the street in front of my house. Aurora is growing rapidly with light rail stations opening soon near my home. Train service to DIA and Downtown already available.

Other things to note

Please READ my entire listing, especially the House Rules, so you can honestly determine if being a guest in my home will be a good fit for you. Please do not base a decision to stay with me solely on my location or price. I want all who stay with me to have a great experience, but I know it's not for everyone.

Recreational use of marijuana was recently legalized in Colorado, however I do not allow it in my home or on my premises. If you are a user, please do not inquire or request a reservation.

Cigarette smoking is only allowed outdoors.

Respect. Common Courtesy. Communication. Cleanliness.
I typically host 2-3 guests on a consistent basis. Therefore my style of hosting is fairly structured. I'm particular the house be kept clean and tidy. I expect you to keep your space clean and your belongings put away. If you are a messy type and don't like to clean up after yourself and/or respect house rules, my home will not be a good fit for you.

This is a quiet, conservative house. No drugs of any kind, legal or illegal including marijuana, use or possession allowed anywhere on premises. No exceptions. Cigarette smoking is allowed outdoors only.

No drunkenness/excessive drinking of alcohol.

Quiet is expected in the house from 9pm till 5am. This means preferably no showering or use of kitchen during these hours. No use of laundry facilities permitted after 9pm.

I am water and energy conservative and ask that lights, fans, etc. be turned off when no longer occupying a room. I do not run the dishwasher until it is full. Extended stay guests are allowed 2 loads of laundry per week. Host washes bath towels on a weekly basis and bed linens upon request in larger capacity washer and dryer in the basement.

I may be able to be somewhat flexible, within reason, regarding check in/out times. Please discuss with me prior so mutually convenient arrangements can be made.

I stayed with Dena for two months during training for a new job and I couldn't have asked for a better temporary living situation. Dena is a wonderful host and her house is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. There is a running path nearby and it's close to grocery stores. If you are looking for a short stay or a long one, this place is guaranteed to be clean and comfortable the entire time!

Julian, I'm so sorry I didn't get a review written for you!!! I have had my son and daughter-in-law in town and went to write your review tonight and the window had already closed. You were an absolute pleasure to host and are welcome to come stay with me any time you find yourself back in Denver. Thoroughly enjoyed having you!

Wonderful host! I felt right at home. Dena's home is neat and clean and very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and residential. Her home is convenient to shopping, restaurants and the airport. Dena's home would be a great choice for either a short or long term stay.

If you are unwilling to share some details about your stay in Colorado, please do not request to stay in my home. I will ask questions to ensure we are a good fit.

I'm a native and enjoy living in beautiful Colorado, sunny nearly every day. I'm a make-up artist, esthetician and stylist. I feel so blessed that my work is also my passion. My basement is a salon and I do some of my work from home. My son is grown, living and working in the DC area, I visit him frequently. I have a lovable older dog (Lab/Boxer mix).

Hosting has been a great experience for me, I've met some great and interesting people from all walks of life. I've hosted many med students due to my location, close to the Anschutz medical campus as well as airline employees. I often have 3 guests so try to maintain cleanliness and organization. My style of hosting is fairly structured.
