About this listing
What's more Boulder than staying in the middle of the mountains and sharing common space with an actual boulder? The Hydeaway is a modern house perched on a cliff overlooking Boulder and surrounding terrain. With floor to ceiling glass overlooking the canyon, the panoramic views are stunning. THIS is the spot to experience a Front Range sunset! There are four bedrooms and a well-stocked kitchen. The home is central to tons of hiking trails, yet just six minutes to downtown Boulder.
This stunning home is a locally envied gem in Boulder. Perched high on stunning Mount Sanitas and built in to the cliff with a rock outcrop flowing through, it has the look of an architect’s award-winning mountain home.
With the privacy of your very own 1000 square feet of deck, you’ll get to enjoy views of the stunning sunshine canyon, red rocks and the surrounding mountains. The sunset views are incredible. It’s not uncommon to see rainbows stretching across the valley, or wild deer grazing in the garden.
Inside you’ll find a huge kitchen equipped with everything you’ll need, including some of the best fresh coffee you could ask for. Coupled with a large BBQ on the main deck, this means you’ll want to spend many evenings just relaxing at the house. There are two additional living rooms and a large space perfect for doing yoga, reading, or finishing a couple of hours work. Naturally the house comes with free wireless internet access in the main living spaces.
On the far side of the house you’ll find three large double bedrooms, one with a master king size bed and two with comfortable queen beds. The fourth bedroom is accessed via a separate entrance and has its own full bathroom. A day bed in the second living room opens up to two soft single mattresses to sleep another two people in comfort. Fresh laundered bed linen from Anthropologie, hotel style clean towels for all guests and plenty of soft blankets mean you’ll feel incredibly at home.
Perfectly secluded for absorbing the beautiful scenery around you, this home is still just a 6 minute drive from downtown Boulder. A wonderful trail winds its way down the canyon from the house so it’s just 35 minutes to hike or a 11 minute bike ride to downtown.
Spend time enjoying the beautiful countryside, hiking trails, swimming in natural pools, the many wonderful restaurants and coffee shops in Boulder. Then as happy hour approaches, return for a decadent night in the most stunning of mountain homes. Perfect for secluded retreats, hosting wonderful dinners, family celebrations or even working-away groups.
Having spent 3 years traveling in 75 countries I know what’s important to Airbnb guests and I’m excited to welcome you to Boulder and Sunshine Canyon!
Please note: due to the cliff location, access to the house is via stairs though the gardens and may not be suitable for wheelchair access or those with difficulty walking. Winter bookings should ensure they have vehicles that can drive through snowy conditions in Colorado.
Guests will have access to the entire house including bedrooms, kitchen, decks and living room.
Parking spots are limited to six cars, and since the location is on a cliff this is an actual, strict limit.
Interaction with guests
I'm available to offer recommendations, troubleshoot if any problems arise, or assist in any emergency scenario (knock on wood).
I love how close to Boulder the house is but how secluded it is. Perfectly perched on the ridge it is the best of mountains and city.
You will need a car or love hiking 30 minutes to get to downtown. By car, it is a six minute drive to the Pearl Street Mall.
Other things to note
Every booking includes one free in-home massage! Let me know if you'd like to use this perk and we'll set up a time with a local massage therapist.
Be kind to the house and treat it as if it were your own.
Smokers please note there is no smoking inside. Please use the decks!
Parking spots are limited to six cars (no parties where more than six cars are invited).
No commercial use without permission.

Hello travelers! I love hosting and welcoming people the city I love!
I'm lucky enough to have traveled a lot in my life. I've been to all 50 states and 75 countries including: Argentina, Aruba, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Latvia, Lebanon, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Panama, Qatar, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, and the UK. My favorite three would have to be Australia, Lebanon and Colombia (although I have had great experiences everywhere).
I'm a fan of Bluegrass, the American Southwest and how to make the most out of traveling.
