Suite includes free wi-fi, private bedroom with king bed and desk, den w/2 double futons, TV, Netflix, ping pong table, well-equipped kitchenette with fridge, microwave and many cooking appliances, free coffee, private bathroom. Backyard patio w/hot tub. NON-SMOKING, Pet-free space. AirBnB Sanitation Protocol-Approved.

The space
While this listing is not for our whole house, you do have an entire basement apartment. We want you to feel welcome, safe and comfortable with us. The entrance to the house is via a keypad that opens the garage. From there, you enter a small foyer that is separate from the rest of the house then descend the staircase to La Bella Terra, our Italian-themed Colorado retreat. The entrance to your area is separated from the rest of the house by double French doors so you do not enter the main house to access your suite. We offer a fully finished, 900 sq. ft. basement featuring a private bedroom with a comfortable king bed with clean, high-quality linen, a den with two futons that fold out to double beds with linen and pillows, and queen air bed if needed. In addition to the futons, the den has a 44" TV with Blu-Ray player, Netflix and local channels (no cable). The newer kitchenette features a full-size fridge with ice maker, sink, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster oven, blender, hot plate, crock pot and microwave with enough dishes and utensils for six. We offer granola bars, coffee and tea for breakfast. We do not offer hot breakfast (insurance rules). There is no stove/oven but there is a toaster oven, microwave and hot plate with pots. There's plenty of room left over for the full-size ping pong table or, if you have extra guests, it can be folded up to make room for a queen air mattress (4th bed). The private bathroom has a shower (no tub) with a removable shower head. We supply high-quality bath and hot tub towels as well as soap, shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, blow dryer and a few other essentials. The basement usually stays cool year-round so there is no A/C but we supply several fans. In the cooler seasons, we keep the house at 68 degrees in the daytime and 63 at night. The additional heaters in your space quickly warm your room if you like it toastier.
There are dozens of games and books available for you to enjoy during your stay. We offer self check-in to minimize in-person contact but we are just upstairs if there are any extra amenities you might need. The guest book will fill you in on all the amenities available to you and give you a layout of the city, including menus and coupons for restaurants and attractions. You will get the garage code so you may come and go as you please without fear that you will bother us. You'll have access to the sturdy corn hole game in our private backyard/patio with fire pit but the rest of the house is not available to guests.
Note: You will have to descend stairs to get to La Bella Terra. Neither of our quiet dogs has access to your space but our Cairn/Westie, Toto, may be on patrol while you are outside. Our sweet black lab, Missy, would love to be petted and is quiet and gentle. We do not allow pets in your space order to keep the suite clean and pleasant-smelling. La Bella Terra is unscented and we do not use artificial fragrances in our laundry detergent. We completely clean and sanitize the suite after each guest. You will always get fresh, clean sheets and towels, sparkling clean bathroom and kitchen areas, and newly vacuumed and mopped floors. We also air out the space for a minimum of three hours after each guest, no matter the temperature outside. We own and operate this space so if there is a problem, we own it and fix it. We don't pass the buck on to some "corporate policy" or unseen "management." We truly want you to be happy and more than satisfied. You will be our only guests. We live in the upstairs and don't rent out any other rooms. We occasionally have friends over but we observe quiet hours of 11 PM to 7 AM for your comfort. Please do not use the hot tub during quiet hours and please shower before using the hot tub. Excessive dirt, grime, oils, or debris in the hot tub will incur a $25 additional cleaning fee.

Guest access
Check-in is 3 PM or later. We can sometimes offer early check-in of noon or late check-out of 2 PM for an additional $15. Please inquire if you need an early check-in or late check-out. You'll have the entire basement with private bedroom and bathroom completely to yourselves and the door to the suite locks from your side. You'll also have access to the backyard/patio with hot tub, lawn furniture and fire pit. Access into the suite is through the garage and you will be provided with a garage code prior to arrival. The entrance is separated from the rest of our house so you don't need to worry about bothering us if you come in late or take off early! Our bedrooms are upstairs and yours are downstairs with the main level between us. You will need to descend stairs to get to the basement. We allow use of the washer/dryer if staying three days or longer with 24-hour notice. We ask that you do not enter the rest of the home during your stay. Our kitchen is not available to our guests.

Other things to note
This listing has the required STR city permit. We have a friendly 13-year-old Westie named Toto and a gentle, quiet 5-year-old black lab named Missy. They are usually quiet and stay upstairs. We have a 3-year-old grandson who occasionally comes over and makes noise, but he leaves by 7:30 PM. Parking is on the street in front of the house. Please do not park in the driveway. You will need to be able to climb stairs to stay here. Our accommodations are not well-suited for toddlers since there are stairs, but we can provide you with a baby gate if necessary. We do not have a crib but we do offer a Pack-n-Play. Children over 6 are subject to the extra person charge to cover the added expense of complimentary snacks, amenities and cleaning. We sanitize the suite after every guest checks out to ensure you have a clean, safe stay. In order to thoroughly clean, we ask that you honor our 11:00 AM check out time and please understand if we can't allow you early check-in due to the cleaning process. Drunkenness or disorderly conduct will not be tolerated. This includes abuse of drugs and alcohol or loud, foul language. If you do not adhere to these rules, you will be asked to leave without refund. Please remember to shower before using the hot tub. Excessive dirt, grime, oil or debris in the hot tub will incur a $25 additional cleaning fee.

Location

Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States

We live in a quiet neighborhood in the Briargate subdivision in the northeast of Colorado Springs. Please view the map provided by Airbnb before booking. While it only takes about 20 minutes to get to downtown, there are other Airbnbs closer to some of the iconic sights, so please note our location when making your reservation. We are closer to the Air Force Academy, Black Forest and north Powers corridor. We have two parks and walking trails within a minute's walk. There are a few dogs in the neighborhood who occasionally bark but not often. Our guests have not complained. Powers corridor is about a minute's drive and I-25 is about 8 minutes. We are within walking distance of shopping and dining. We are 10 minutes drive from the Air Force Academy, 20 minutes from downtown and 30 minutes from Manitou Springs. Denver to the north and Cripple Creek gambling to the west are just a little more than an hour away. World famous ski resorts are two to three hours away.
