Lovely Victorian* Walk to Pearl St!

House - Entire home/apt · Portland Place, Boulder, CO 80304, United States

The Space

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. 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.

  • If your reading this, book your trip with Linda and Karl. My stay with Linda and Karl was really great. I felt comfortable and at home while staying at their place. Their home is spotlessly clean and I had everything I needed-a comfortable bed, towels, a place to put my clothes, wifi for internet, an accessible bathroom less than 5 ft away, and peace and quiet. Every morning I was there, Linda generously allowed and encouraged me to make eggs, toast, and have some cereal. This was a benefit I wasn't expecting! Linda and Karl are easy to talk to and spend time with too as well, which made my stay there even easier. The location is so good-I walked everywhere I needed and wanted to go, with the Pearl Street Mall a couple blocks away. I was able to experience Boulder the way I wanted to, even without a car due to the awesome location. I would stay there again any time!

  • Great location, lovely home, and Linda and Karl were respectful and easygoing. The location really was the big winner here - they let me park in their driveway, which was good because I walked everywhere.

  • I loved staying here!!! It was wonderful meeting Linda - she struck me as a very kind, genuine person. She was really accommodating and sweet, even after we got into town hours after we had expected! The house was beautiful, and everything was set up comfortably for us in the guest room. I immediately felt at home. Not to mention - the listing was a great value! Will definitely reach out to Linda if I return to Boulder! :)

  • Linda provides a lovely home from which to enjoy your visit to the Boulder, Colorado area. The atmosphere in her home is one of gentle comforts. Very clean, open and a place where the mind can quiet very quickly. Her street is low traffic, yet convenient to the downtown Boulder amenities. We felt very welcome and very well taken care of during our stay.

  • Linda and Carey are great hosts. The house is beautiful, lots of charm and in a great location. This was my first airbnb experience and it was a great one.

  • I had a wonderful stay in Boulder. Linda's home is immaculate and very welcoming. The room was lovely and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Linda is so friendly and nice and provided tips on restaurants and hiking trails. The neighborhood is lovely and within walking distance to a great little market and wonderful Italian restaurant. I am looking forward to returning to Boulder and will definitely stay with Linda again!

  • Great location as is short walk to Pearl Street! Linda is very helpful and her place is fantastic! beautiful old home that is modern. Bed was very comfortable and Linda was kind enough to leave water in the room. I would definitely stay there again. (I was in and out for work, and it was definitely better choice than a hotel.)

    September 2013
  • We only wish we could have stayed longer to better relax and get to enjoy Linda and Karl's company. Though just a few blocks from downtown their house is on a quiet street. The house itself is clean and comfortable, and the hosts are wonderfully nice and good people. The next time the opportunity arises we will definitely try to stay here again!

  • We had a great stay with Linda and Karl. They were wonderful hosts -- laid back, informative, helpful and kind. Their home is welcoming, comfortable, beautiful and cozy. Linda has lived in the area many years and is a knowledgeable resource about the area. The location is super convenient and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to visit. Our stay was too short, just one night. We will definitely visit them again. It was our first Airbnb experience, and now we are hooked.

    September 2013
  • We had such a lovely time with Linda and Karl! Their home is so lovely and inviting. The four of us even had a little jam session with Karl's guitar and Linda lent us some sunscreen.

    As is mentioned in the listing, you share a shower with them, but not the bathroom. This worked out really well and I never would have even known that they were also showering their unless they had told me.

    The house is a ten minute walk to Pearl street and very accessible for those who don't have a car. Will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Boulder.

    p.s. They have amazing pour over coffee!

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.
