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 their 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 love to visit with my guests but also give them their privacy. I take my cue from my guests as to how much they like to interact, some are more social than others. But often we come and go at different times and I hardly see them

Other things to note

Please READ my 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.

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 don't like cleaning up after yourself and/or don't want to respect my house rules, then 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. 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'm 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.

This was my first time using Airbnb. To be honest I was quite nervous and didn't know what to expect. Dena made me feel right at home. Her place was exceptionally clean and she had everything already prepared. With the exception of meeting her the first day I felt like I had the place to myself. I would highly recommend Dena's place. Side note: her dog was awesome. Very friendly, clean, and well groomed. No dog hair anywhere and very quiet.

Response from Dena:
I'm sorry we came and went at different times and I hardly saw you. Appreciate the kind review. Everyone loves the dog! Come back anytime, Trae.

Dena had literally everything you could imagine, which was very helpful for me as I was traveling from Chicago for 3 weeks and forgot a couple things. The house was always spotless and comfortable. She made it very easy and clear to store groceries and toiletries (since other guests were staying at the same time as well). The room was just as it appears in the pictures - comfy bed, TV with premium channels, and lots of storage space. I felt very comfortable and would recommend this to anyone needing a long-term stay. And the dog is adorable too :)

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Dena's place. She is so accommodating and always willing to help and go the extra mile to make things great. The house is beautiful, well keep, immaculately clean, and her dog is such a wonderful little sweetheart. Dena, thank you so much for making mine an absolutely pleasant stay, and for helping to make my transition into Denver a smooth one. I must say, every day when I came back from work or while out and about, I felt like I was coming back to a sanctuary. And I do not say that lightly. Keep up the great work! :-D

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.
