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.

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 would like to interact, some are more social than others.

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. You Fit (circuit training) just opened a few blocks away $10 down/$10 a month. There is also a Lady Fitness within walking distance.

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.

  • I had an early flight to the airport the morning after so my boyfriend and I wanted to stay somewhere near the Denver international airport which is about a 15 minute ride from her place. Dena hosted us last minute at her place and was incredibility accommodating and sweet especially given under the circumstances that she was in the middle of a garage sale when we contacted her. Although we didn't get to see much of Aurora it seemed to be a nice neighborhood and the room was adorable and clean. Her son also made the headboard out of these bamboo sticks which we thought were pretty cool. I highly recommend Dena's place!

  • Dena was welcoming and friendly and her house is warm, inviting, clean, and very comfortable. Dena is organized and works hard to make sure she has everything you may need or want during your stay. I stayed here while in the process of moving to Denver and really enjoyed getting to know the other guests and spending time with her sweet, adorable dog. There is a hike/bike trail within walking distance and Denver is just down the road. The house isn't too far from the Air Force base so if the window is open and you listen carefully you can faintly hear them playing taps every evening and reveille each morning. I had a lovely stay and would definitely return.

  • I had a very positive experience staying with Dena in Aurora. Being on an elective placement at the Children's hospital, the location was ideal. The house is kept very clean. The kitchen has everything you need. This room shares a bathroom with the room next door, whilst the other room Dena rents has an en-suite. There is a trail within 500m of the house where I would go for runs in the evening. Dena herself was very considerate of her guests, and helped me out with my washing more than once!

  • We had a great stay with Dena. She was a perfect host and has a very nice home. Great value!

  • I flew in to Denver later in the evening. Dena had a lovely, clean, quiet room prepared for me with some fresh fruit and bottled water; just the things I need to feel better after a long trip! Great hostess with excellent recommendations about local food, culture, and fun. Would highly recommend to anybody going to Denver and would definitely say there again. Thanks Dena!

  • I had a great time staying at Dena's for a month. The house is big, CLEAN and beautiful. She's very non intrusive. I have never roomed in someone else's house before and was apprehensive in the beginning. But, I really had a wonderful experience. Her dogs are sweethearts. I would surely do it again.

  • Lovely hostess, lovely home, lovely room - it was the perfect place to stay the night before we had a flight home out of DIA. If you're looking for a comfortable, quiet, clean and homey place, this is for you!

    Very helpful blinking 'Welcome' sign outside her home waiting for us and everything we needed (towels, linens, water bottles) in our room ready for us to use.

    I was looking for somewhere close to the airport since we had an early morning flight and this was just great!

  • Dena was a very lovely host. She is very friendly and can tell you a lot about the area. Her house is EXTREMELY clean which made me very happy. Her dogs are very sweet.

    August 2013
  • We loved staying with Dena! She was the epitome of hospitable. She helped beyond what she had to...She was a wonderful person with to talk to and was oh-so-very kind! Thanks for everything Dena. If we're back in the Denver area - we hope to visit with you again!

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. I love pampering and taking care of people. My basement is a salon and I do some of my work from home. My son is grown, just moving from DC to Virginia, I visit him frequently. I have two lovable dogs. One is a Pointer, the other a Lab/Boxer mix.
