The space

Thank you for visiting my Full Bed Room Site!

This is 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, or for just hanging out. In the summer, a large evaporative cooler and ceiling fans help keep the whole house cool. The small, fenced garden in back is a work in progress, with a small patio under the grape arbor, and the front porch is ideal for watching the world go by. My backyard chickens provide amusement and fresh eggs.

The house itself can accommodate up to 10 guests. I have several kinds of accommodations: queen bed in private room, full bed in private room, king bed for up to 3 people (best with small child or children) in private room, and large queen-size sofa bed in living room for families or groups traveling together and who will book the queen bed room as well. There are other sleeping possibilities as well. Family/group rates are negotiable. The two bathrooms are shared. Two-night minimum stay.

This particular room, the Full Bed Room, normally accommodates two persons. It is my "rustic room," although many guests have declared that the mattress "is the most comfortable I've ever slept on." The bed is high, so a step stool waits under the bed for a guest's need. The double room comes with a chest of drawers, a desk, bookshelves, a table for luggage, a large shared closet, and a couple of chairs, with Native American themed artwork.

This room is on the second floor of my home. If there are no guests in the King Bed Room, then the guest/s in the Full share the upstairs bathroom with me. If there are guests in the King Room, then the guests in the Full use the downstairs bathroom on the main floor, which is shared. A Caution: the stairs are very steep in this old Victorian, so extreme care should be taken when using them. This room is lockable.

I provide all bed linens and covers, pillows, towel sets, hair dryer, tissues, shampoo and conditioner, body wash and soap. You will need to bring something to cover you to and from the bathroom, if you're not comfortable wearing a towel.

All taxes (totaling 14.75%) are included in the cost of each room, as are breakfasts. I charge a cleaning fee of $10 per room because of the need to sanitize everything a guest might touch or use, and to clean thoroughly before and after each guest's visit.

Some amenities in my home are Wireless Internet/WiFi, basic cable TV, baby grand piano, fully equipped kitchen and dining room, with all the fixings for a great breakfast, as you like it. I do not prepare breakfasts for guests.

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, some beautiful and 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 easily accessed by foot 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!

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 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!

Supervised children are very welcome. Pets and smoking of any kind, including vapor, are not welcome.

Guest access

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.

Other things to note

My STR license with the City and County of Denver is 2016-BFN-0008368.

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.

Our stay at Alexandra's was FANTASTIC! She is such a gracious host and very accommodating. She helped us find places within walking distance to visit, and also let us know about some of the events going on, like the Taste of Colorado festival. Also her breakfast items were of the best quality and mostly, if not entirely, organic. I felt right at home! Did I also mention how overall kind she was? Best air bnb stay yet. Thanks Alexandra!

Alexandra kindly let us check in late at 1:30am being our flight was delayed. She even took the time to show us the facilities and gave us slippers upon arrival. She is a kind woman and made me and my best friend feel at home while we stayed at her house. The bed is very comfortable and I got great sleep while in Denver, wish I could have taken it home! lol The parking is free every 2 hours which was great for us being when we travel we are rarely at our AirBnb and get ready and go. Overnight it is free so it was perfect. Also, very close to downtown and very very short Uber ride to any nightlife. She was informed about all local attractions and gave us maps to use while out and about. She went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Thanks again Alexandra! :-)

My mom and I had a great stay here! The bed was extremely comfortable and the location was within walking distance of everything I needed. The room was quiet and clean. Alexandra was the most gracious host, and we had a wonderful time chatting with her. The breakfast was delicious as well! I would definitely stay here again if I came back to Denver.

Staying with Alexandra was such an awesome experience. She is so incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable about her area! Upon arrival, Alexandra already had a map of things out for me to do and even circled places that were budget friendly for me, which was really kind of her to do. The room was perfect sized, exactly as described, and the house was incredibly clean, definitely a wonderful experience. As far as location goes, Alexandra lives in a prime spot and everything is in walking distance or a short $6 uber ride away. Next time I come to Denver, I will definitely be reaching out to Alexandra. This was a wonderful experience for a first time Air BnB user and it just goes to show that Alexandra has a wonderful business going! Thanks again for the great memories in Denver!!

Alexandra User ProfileAlexandra is a superhost.

Denver native, former teacher, musician, chaplain. Spent 4 years in Bolivia and speak Spanish. I love my home and its location so close to everything. My neighborhood keeps growing upscale, but my home remains surprisingly quiet! My single family home is a true oasis in the city.

Seven wonderful grandchildren and their parents make my life a blessing.

I have really enjoyed welcoming and getting to know my guests from all over the world and the USA, and look forward to many more!
