About This Listing
This clean, quiet private bedroom that sleeps 2 is only 1 mile to the Convention Center & the heart of downtown. The neighborhood has breweries, coffee shops, restaurants, galleries & easy access to public transit and bike rental.
One room available in this awesome little two bedroom/one bathroom house located in Denver's vibrant Santa Fe Arts district, only 1 mile from the Convention Center. The space is clean and quiet and thoughtfully decorated. The comfortable Queen size memory foam mattress sleeps 2 people. Plenty of closet space for luggage and clothing for longer stays. I do live here full time so this isn't the best place for a romantic getaway or party weekend, but it is perfect for getting downtown, Convention Center or Performing Arts Center.

**Other things to consider**
I have two friendly cats. Please let me know an approximate itinerary/schedule for your visit so I can plan my schedule around yours to give you a more private, comfortable stay.
I recommend Uber or Lyft. Super Shuttle is approx $30 each way and this takes roughly an hour. Cab fares are about $60-70. Public transit is about $10-12 and will require a transfer downtown. Its the cheapest, but most time consuming way. I'm happy to provide more information on any of these transportation methods to ensure you are choosing the right option for your schedule and budget.
The front yard is currently under construction and I apologize that it does not look as nice as I'd like it to at the moment.
Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry, front and back yards. I do live here full time so the common areas including the bathroom are shared.
Interaction with Guests
I love when guests feel like they have the house to themselves so I try to plan my own work schedule in a way that gives the guest the most peace and quiet during their stay.
I have been in this neighborhood for 6 years and love it more than ever. This is an urban neighborhood within the vibrant Santa Fe arts district. This is one of the two oldest neighborhoods in Denver and showcases beautiful old brick architecture with unique and colorful homes. The area is very diverse in race, age, religion, lifestyle and economic class. If you are looking for a cookie cutter, gated community where all the houses look the same, this is not the place for you. Personally I have always felt safe in this neighborhood even at night. People here are very friendly and usually say hi as they pass by.
This area is going through a revitalization which can be observed through various construction projects and new businesses along Santa Fe Drive.
The light rail can be picked up just a few blocks from here. It will take you directly downtown. There are two B-Cycle stations a couple of blocks from here if the weather is nice and you prefer a bike rental instead of the light rail or bus.
Other Things to Note
**For Fun: Craft Beer Trade**
I love drinking craft beer from other states. If you bring me a bottle from where you are from, I'll send you home with a bottle of Colorado craft beer. If you aren't a beer drinker, I'll send you home with some of Colorado's other great offerings, such as small batch chocolate, local honey or something hand crafted by Denver's creative community.
Pets not allowed (I already have two!). Smoking of any kind is permitted OUTSIDE only, including vapor pens. No guests allowed other than those stated in the original booking (ie: don't meet people during your visit and bring them to my house).
One of my best airbnb experiences yet. Jennie was a very thoughtful and relaxed host. The house is great - very comfortable with a front porch and backyard to sit out in. The neighborhood is cute - easy 20-30 minute walk to downtown. Loved a nearby cafe as well as yoga place and very close to the cherry creek bike path. Whiskey, the orange tiger cat, was also a super gracious host. Highly recommend.
Jennie was a very welcoming host. She was able to give good advice what to do in the area so that we had a lot we could to do. The house was very nice and in a good location. We also had a lot of fun with her cats which welcomed us as friends almost immediately. All in all we had an amazing time at Jennies House.
The neighborhood was in a great location to walk anywhere. Jennie's home is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. She made us feel at home!
Jennie made my stay at her home very welcoming from our initial communications. She is friendly and helpful, and I felt very at home in her clean and lovely home. The room and house were just as described and shown. The location being one mile from the Convention Center allowed for either walking or using the bike share for going back and forth, and the light rail to the airport bus was convenient too.
I highly recommend Jennie as your Denver host!
Jennie is sweet &helpful. Her home was clean and easy to find. The neighborhood is well kept & decently lit. I would stay at her home again.
About the Host, Jennie
I love craft beer. I work full time for a local brewery. On the side, I run my own design business and get to work with some really fun clients. I travel whenever I can, wherever I can.
For fun I enjoy cooking, baking, gardening, and practicing yoga. I focus on supporting local businesses and eating healthy. I'm a sunshine addict and I can be found outside on any day with sun and warm weather.
In the summer months I spend a lot of time in the garden doing everything I can to make my plants grow. In the winter I spend a lot of time in the kitchen making soup, cookies, bread and other delicious treats. On a snowy day I stay home, order Thai delivery and listen to the jazz station.
Honestly, Ive never been here. The oldest restaurant in Denver, featuring lots and lots of meat, some unique stuff, but can be spendy. If you cant stomach taxidermy, this aint the place for you.Osage Street Denver CO 80204
Awesome neighborhood brewery. Grab a beer and grab a bite to eat from the food truck parked outside.West 9th Avenue Denver CO 80204

Traditional, country-style Japanese restaurant. Quaint, quiet and be prepared to sit on low stools with low tables...and to eat REALLY delicious food. Ive never been here for dinner, only lunch.Osage Street Denver CO 80204
Closest grocery store to my house. A Kroger grocery store. Dont be alarmed by the fact that you have to enter through the parking garage...its strange, but its a complete store.Speer Boulevard Denver CO 80204
