About this listing
This serene house is a peaceful place to get away. It is centrally located downtown and is near an extensive bicycle trail and charming park. Great location makes it easy to get to the zoo, Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods, Manitou...
Beds--the bed in the master bedroom is a queen size bed and is medium firmness/softness. There is an self-inflating twin high air mattress and there is also a twin bed with trundle downstairs.
Chateau de Kiwi is a stand alone house and is not part of our house, though we live very close if you need anything. I have really enjoyed restoring this house. My husband and I refinished the hardwood floors and the 500sq foot deck. We also built bookshelves, spiffed up the bathroom, stained concrete, sewed energy efficient thermal window coverings to keep the original 1938 windows and keep the house comfortable, added attic insulation, and decorated so that our guests feel at home.
Fishing, skiing, hiking, swimming, the zoo, great shopping, historical interests, hot springs, good restaurants, lots of museums are all nearby!
We really enjoy meeting new people, so if you want us to show you some great coffee shops and hang out, we would enjoy that as well--if our schedules allow. However, with short stays it's not uncommon to not be able to meet guests because of schedules. Also, if you want privacy, you've got it.
Established, quiet neighborhood centrally located. Chateau de Kiwi is located in the Roswell neighborhood which was built for railroad workers and their families in the 1800s. The area is rich in history. You may want to also explore The Pioneer Museum downtown or nearby Old Colorado City, shops and restaurants where the capital of Colorado was before it became a state.
There is a bus stop a few blocks away that makes getting around without a car possible.
Chateau de Kiwi is located fairly close to downtown, so it's about 40 minute leisurely walk or a 20 minute bike ride on a great trail. Also, it takes about 20 minutes to walk to the grocery store. K mart and a 7/11 convenient store are also a few blocks away.
Please, let me know ahead of time if you would like to borrow the two adult bikes that I have. (The men's bike is very tall)
Coffee and tea provided.
No smoking inside please. If you smoke outside, please don't bring butts inside. No underage drinking or drug use.
Please only use candles in wood burning stove and not wood.
Due to my insurance policy, no pets please.
Guests assume all risk if using bicycles, and Chateau de Kiwi and owner will not be responsible for personal nor property damage related to bicycle use. Please bring your own helmet for bicycle use.
I will take an extra cleaning fee out of the security deposit if the house is left really messy. I've been very happy with how considerate most people are.
For checkout, please wash dishes; take garbage out to trash by shed; pile dirty sheets and towels by front door; and message me that you are checking out. Thanks!
The bedroom is Colorado inspired. Baby blue walls and golden hues reflect Colorado skies. Also, original mountain scene art makes for a serene space.
