About this listing
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION
Stay in the best location Boulder has to offer. Walk everywhere from this Mapleton Hill location: 6 blocks to the center of the famous Pearl Street Mall; 3 blocks to our neighborhood Whole Foods, Vic's Coffee, Pharmaca, restaurants, specialty wine shop, and (website hidden). Sanitas trailhead is 6 blocks away. One block to the bus stop. 3 blocks to the closest bike rental station. The convenience of this location just can't be beat.
The house has loads of charm with wood floors throughout. It's a very peaceful and relaxing space with three bedrooms and bath upstairs and living room, parlor, kitchen, and bath on the main level. It is a renovated Victorian house built in 1896 by a Boulder Judge. The kitchen is fully updated with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. You will love cooking in this kitchen although it may be hard to resist all of the awesome restaurant choices that are located so close by. There is a flat screen and surround sound system in the living room for TV or movies. The house is wireless. Did we mention the wrap around front porch? Really fun to hang out on and watch people walking and biking by or grill something delicious on the gas grill. We ask that you speak quietly on the porch so as not to disturb our neighbors. Please know that there is no backyard and instead there are townhouses behind the house. However, the awesome wrap around front porch more than makes up for the lack of a backyard.
The house has three bedrooms but we are only offering two. This is because we live in the house (but go on vacation when you are here) and have chosen to use one of the bedrooms to store our clothes and personal things in, otherwise the closets would be full and no room for you. However, if you desire the third bedroom (which has a single bed) and you don't mind the closets being pretty full but with a little room for you, we can work this out.
MASTER BEDROOM. This bedroom is very large and includes a queen real bed, desk for your computer, walk-in closet, and a wall of windows offering a bit of a view of the Flatirons. There is an en suite bathroom that includes a small shower stall. The stall is currently not in use, so showering is done in the main bathroom. There is a TV in this room. It is located in the front of the house facing the street and is very sunny. You will hear some street noise at times (occasionally people walking by and car doors) if you keep the windows open at night.
SECOND BEDROOM. This bedroom includes a double real bed, desk for your computer, plenty of closet space, and foothill views to the north. This bedroom is in the back of the house and very quiet.
THIRD BEDROOM. If we work this out as mentioned above, this bedroom has a single bed, desk for your computer, and walk-in closet. It is in the back of the house and very quiet.
PULL OUT SOFA. The sofa pulls out as a bed in the living room.
The house has three bathrooms, 2 upstairs and 1 on the main level. All three bedrooms are upstairs and located close to each other so if you are looking for a lot of privacy from one bedroom to the other, this may not be the best situation for you.
Since we will be out of town during your stay, there will be a lockbox provided with keys. As well, our friend Ray (a prior owner of the house) can meet you at the house upon your arrival. I will also leave a notebook with detailed instructions regarding the thermostat, the window A/C unit, and other things about the house. Should you need help with anything during your stay, Ray will be available to come over and help you. I am available by email, phone or text.
No issue, there is free street parking and a driveway.
I am a 30 year resident of Boulder and possess a wealth of knowledge about this town and will leave plenty of information at the house to assist you in exploring Boulder. My boyfriend moved here from California three years ago and we know you will enjoy staying in our home.
Sorry, no smoking or pets.
We know you will enjoy our house and its exceptional location to all that Boulder offers. Please, no smoking, no throwing of parties... just keep it mellow and use the house as a retreat to relax, cook a meal, watch a movie. We keep the kitchen spotless and hope that you will as well. Detailed instructions will be left as to how to clean the granite and other surfaces. Very important - please lock the two doors upon leaving to protect your possessions and ours. It's a safe neighborhood but things can happen.
About the Host, Linda
I've lived in Boulder for 30 years and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge about this city that I'm happy to share. My boyfriend moved here from California three years ago and he loves it here. I obviously love it since I've been here so long. I'm a real estate broker and also do some freelance admin work around town. I'm just getting back into fine art painting so that is exciting. I like to play guitar, cook healthy food, and be out in the sunny weather. My boyfriend is a painter (of houses) and has spent countless hours updating and keeping our house looking good. He also plays guitar, writes music, and sings. He has two grown sons that are musicians and travel around the world. I have one son who lives here in Boulder. He is a server in a very nice restaurant in town and he also takes people on fly fishing tours, so if you're into that, I will put him in touch with you. You will have a great time here and we look forward to meeting you.
