About this listing
King Bed Room guests have the option of adding a twin-size trundle bed in the room for an additional adult or up to two children. The cost is an additional $15 per night. King Bed Room guests also have the right to rent, for an additional $45 per night, the queen-size sofa bed in the living room. Guests can let me know that they would like to rent either of these options, and the price will be included in the cost of the King Bed Room. They cannot be rented separately.
Thank you for visiting my King Bed Room Site! This particular room is the largest and most comfortable room in my home. The mattress, topped with memory foam, is great! The bed is large enough to accommodate two full-size adults, three smaller adults, or two adults and a child. The room is also large enough to bring in a twin-size trundle bed for another adult or up to two children. The whole room is lovely, quiet, airy, with a spacious feel. The king room comes with two night tables, a chest of drawers, an oak roll-top desk, bookshelves, a table for luggage, a closet, a couple of chairs, and South and Central American decor. This room is on the second floor of my home. The King Bed Room has direct access to the upstairs bathroom and laundry complex, WHICH IS SHARED WITH ME, though we each have our own, separate access. The King Bed Room is lockable.
My home is in a fantastic location very close to Downtown Denver, which is a quick and easy 10 to 15 minute walk away. My home is close enough to go quickly wherever you want Downtown, but it is remarkably quiet and very restful. I am located in the upscale "Uptown" neighborhood, just east of downtown, in a working-class Victorian home (not elegant, but roomy, with character, lots of light and high ceilings). The common rooms (living room, dining room and kitchen) are available to guests for gathering and meal preparation. In the summer, a large evaporative cooler and ceiling fans help keep the whole house cool. The small, fenced yard in back is a work in progress, thanks to the terraforming work of my backyard chickens. There is a small patio with table and chairs under the grape arbor, and the chairs on the front porch are ideal for watching the world go by.
I provide all bed linens and covers, pillows, towel sets, hair dryer, tissues, shampoo and conditioner, body wash and soap.
All local taxes (totaling 14.75%) will be collected by Airbnb separately upon booking. Breakfasts are included in the price of the room. There is also a $10 cleaning fee per reservation.
Some amenities in my home are Wireless Internet/WiFi, basic cable TV, baby grand piano, fully equipped kitchen and dining room, and all the fixings for a great breakfast, as and when you like it.
Living room, dining room, kitchen, refrigerator (with advance planning), laundry room ($3.00 US for wash and dry), patio and porch areas in season.
Interaction with guests
I generally have a great deal of interaction with my guests. I enjoy getting to know them and am available during the days and evenings. If the need arises, I am also here at night. If a guest prefers no or less interaction, that is fine.
Very nearby are 4 grocery stores, from the basic to the gourmet; a number of liquor and fine wine stores; multiple coffee shops and some Internet cafes; Denver's many beautiful parks, and numbers of great and some renowned restaurants and eateries for breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea, dinner, and dessert. Churches, all beautiful and many historical, abound, and many offer some of the most beautiful music and the most interesting services and dialogues around. Entertainment venues too are close by, from Brew Pub Tours to the Denver Performing Arts Complex, movie theaters and world-renowned book stores, excellent museums of all kinds and sizes, including the Denver Art Museum, the Clyfford Still Museum, our wonderful Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and The Children's Museum. The gold-domed Colorado State Capitol, the Denver Public Library, the Denver Botanic Gardens, the Downtown Aquarium, and the ever-expanding Denver Zoo are easily reached. Most of these great amenities are within 2 to 3 miles of my home and can be accessed easily by foot, by shared bicycle, or by public transportation (the RTD). The sheer number of great hang-outs of every kind is really astonishing. Denver is truly a Great City, and my home is RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT ALL!
It is an easy 15-minute walk to downtown or less than 5 minutes to transportation throughout the city. My home is in a perfect location for a wide variety of Denver convention, dining, shopping, athletic, cultural, and entertainment experiences, for individuals and for families. You can avoid the high prices, noise, and traffic of Downtown, while enjoying all of its offerings just a few minutes away.
There is very easy access to major highways through Colorado. Come for the brilliance of the Colorado blue sky and sunshine and all the amenities that Uptown and Downtown Denver have to offer!
Central Denver's best amenities are all in walking distance of my home, but if you'd rather not walk, there is a bike-share rack only one block away. Or, if that doesn't appeal, there are three RTD Bus routes that have stops within 2 blocks of my home: check out the 20, the 28, and the 32 for ease of access into Downtown, from Downtown, and to and from Denver's City Park and its great Museum of Nature and Science and the Denver Zoo. The# 15 Bus is only 4 blocks away, but can take guests along East Colfax to the major medical campuses on its route.
Other things to note
My STR license with the City and County of Denver is 2016-BFN-(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
If your flight is cancelled or you are held up by a storm or your plans change, I am not responsible. Unless the reservation is cancelled with a full week's notice, I will not be refunding the first night booked but not used. Depending on when the cancellation occurs, other nights' refunds may be forfeit as well. I am open to some negotiation, but since I depend on this income to meet my obligations, there's no way to get bookings at the last minute to compensate.
No smoking or vaping of any kind.
If guests use kitchen, guests clean up after themselves.
