Super thick curtains so after the late nights you can still sleep in a bit without the bright Colorado sunshine. Beth and Jim are great resources as to how to get around and what to see in Denver. If you are here during May-Sept. and it's a Wednesday night you can ride along on a Denver Cruiser Ride with 3,000 cruisers for free. It's like burning man on wheels. A must see. Chill around the fire pit. This is not a party house but a friendly warm safe place to stay on the cheap. This is 12 blocks north of City Park where Tour DeFat is held in September! We have three bed rooms devoted to Airbnb. So there is a good chance another guest will be in the home. All have passed the Airbnb verification process. Although with this room you will have Private Bath and Private Entrance. If this room is not available please check out our other rooms also in a separate listing "Bungalow near City Park" - Denver or "Denver City Park Mini-Suite".
Oh and one more thing if you dig corporate hotels like Marriots and Hyatts please pass on us. No Snobs or Snoots! No mints on your pillows only sweet dreams.
Access to the entire home. Kitchen, garden area, fire pit, and we have bikes. Bikes are $10 each per day. Let us know in advance. Cash only pay before you take them. 1st come 1st serve on bikes. Text us one hour prior to arrival cause we know things happen and change.
Interaction with Guests
Note if you do ask to stay in our home please have a complete profile and a short note about why you are coming to Denver. We really do not consider any requests that do not have a picture and a complete profile. Place yourself in our shoes. Would you let just anyone into your home without any info on them? Show us your care. It's a home not a hotel.
We do not interact much. But we will steer you to great places depending on your likes. We are super busy folks and we love hosting but really do not dig waiting for people. So stay in contact let us know your ETA. Text one hour prior to arrival.
It is near Micro Alley but not walkable. Car, bus or bike.
Bus is 200 yards form door. @2.25 gets you downtown in 17 min.
Other Things to Note
This is inner city. Parking on front of home is free. Text one hour prior to arrival.
NO SMOKING INSIDE THE HOME.
Our greatest challenge as hosts is check in. If your going to run around before coming straight here from the airport let us know. We are very active people and do not sit around much. We have dinner parties, movies, hikes, and we ski. So please be considerate about setting a time and sticking to keeping us informed as to your arrival time. It really makes a big difference to us. Friday and Saturday nights can be a big challenge and many times we have to leave an event to let your in if it's in the evening. So be considerate.
It is so very important to text us 1 hour prior to arriving. Please let us know an estimated time of arrival and then once your at the airport or 1 hour away text us so we can meet at the home. Wait in front and we will meet you. We hope you understand we want to check you in and not a guest that is staying at the home in another room.
Wow rules sound so strict? Well its a great place to stay and to sleep so be quite when its past 10:00 PM. If your traveling in from out of the country and you do not have a cell phone we will need to set a time to meet at the house.
No pets, no smoking, no candles, no incense and NO eating in the room.
Kitchen is closed after 11:00PM and is open for use 6:00 a.m. Clinking dishes and the microwave buzzer wakes up the other people in the home.
As far as our guest inviting a new guest into our home we need to know who is coming and staying. So ask us and let us know. We layout bagels and coffee for breakfast. Bikes are $10 a day.
#1 Lock our doors when you leave! Don't depend on the other guest to lock up.
# 2. Our neighbor is complaining about the talking outside his window when he is trying to sleep so we ask you to move the conversation from side patio to front porch or fire pit after 10PM. One complaint from the city and this place will be delisted on Airbnb so please help me keep a good thing going.
#3 Smoking weed at fire pit nowhere else
No Marriot or Hilton patrons, and no snobs or snoots :)
Two weeks we stayed in that private room CityParkGarden in Jimbos sunny, little house. Again we felt at home at once! We love that place in this quiet neighborhood not far from downtown. It is so welcoming and well maintained. Jim is always very keen to keep the rooms and the kitchen clean and to provide a good breakfast. End of August we will be back again. Surely we will then see a luxuriant crop of his fine garden. We will be happy to meet Jimbo and Beth again.
Jimbo was very helpful and accessible ahead of time and during my stay. The room was lovely — clean, quiet, and inviting — and it was great to have bagels and coffee available in the morning!
Jimbo's place is an excellent home-away-from-home for me. I live in the mountains so my needs when traveling to Denver are peace, quiet, convenience and no-fuss. This place fits the bill perfectly.
Again we felt at home in this spaceus room with private bath and a separate entry. We could make full use of the kitchen and enjoyed to sit on the porch. As last year and before our room and the whole House was very clean and well maintained. We love the comfortable bed. We will be back next week to enjoy this nice, sunny place In Denver and to meet Jimbo and Beth again.
Decided to book a spot very last minute, Jim was super accommodating and set out a key under a doormat for us as well as hooking us up with a pair of bikes. House is CUTE! Fire pit is great, kitchen is well appointed, common spaces are pretty and well maintained. Jim was very open to telling us about stuff to go and things to do while on a holiday, was occasionally around puttering about the garden and stuff but was very respectful of our desire to have a private romantic getaway kind of weekend. Would definitely come back again.
I live in the mountains and need a place to stay when in Denver on business. Jimbo's place is perfect for me: comfortable, quiet and no fuss.
My stay was so wonderful! Although I didn't end up meeting Jimbo because our schedules didn't match up, the room and house were great and I had an awesome experience. The bed was incredibly soft, the room was spacious, and the rest of the house was so open and welcoming. The house is really close to the bus line and you can get to downtown Denver very easily. I would definitely stay with Jimbo again!
