Large guest room in my home.

The Space

I have been enjoying welcoming many wonderful guests into my home for over 5 years now with Airbnb (from 24 different countries so far.)

In this guest room there is a queen-sized bed, couch, wifi, TV, desk with computer you may use, also some closet and drawer space. Must share bathroom with me, (or use basement bath) but my time is now flexible since I just retired! There has never been an inconvenience yet with sharing the bathroom. The room fits two people comfortably, but sometimes a third person sleeps on the couch, which they report is comfortable.

I, of course, provide clean towels, soaps, hair dryer, and will probably have on hand anything you might have forgotten. You are welcome to use my shampoos, etc. so you don't have to check baggage. I have some breakfast foods for you to help yourself to.

My house is in an older neighborhood and has a more urban than suburban feel (in that the lawn is not perfect, etc.) My house is clean, but not show-home perfect. I have my piles from time to time. I DO live here. And sometimes it's spotless and sometimes it isn't. Your room and bath are always clean. Most people love it, but if you are a real neat freak, you might be happier elsewhere. The neighborhood to the west is lovely, full of beautiful homes. To the east there are modest homes.

There are a few restaurants within walking distance from my home, and a nice bakery.

Guest Access

You may make yourselves at home in all public parts of house -- kitchen, living and dining rooms, or relaxing outside on patio, watching films downstairs, or listening to stereo. You may use my washer and dryer if need be.

Interaction with Guests

I am happy to interact as much or as little as desired by guest. I am busy and often go out in the evening. I have lots of guest information collected in a large binder in the room. I am happy to make recommendations, or take you with me if I'm going somewhere you'd enjoy.

The Neighborhood

I love the diversity of my neighborhood and its proximity to shopping and restaurants. I live on a beautiful parkway.

Getting around

The number 20 bus is 2 blocks away to go downtown, or the other direction to the Anschutz Medical campus. Easy transportation from the airport via RTD Skyride, route AS. $9.
There is ample free street parking and also some space in my driveway.

Other Things to Note

There is a one-time $5 cleaning fee, which is really more like a one-night-stay surcharge.
Also, I have another room in my basement which I rent which is more private and less expensive. It has a single water bed. It's called "Private" Put 592 in the URL instead of 590, to see it. Down there you can hear people walking around up above.

  • This was our first AirB&B stay, and it worked out really well. Our flight had been delayed, so we didn't get in till 12:30am, but Jill stayed up to welcome us and our 2 year old daughter. She had thoughtfully made a bed for our toddler and helped us get settled. After a good night of sleep we had a nice conversation in the morning before heading out the door. Jill gave us tips on museums and things to do around Denver.

  • Jill ist eine hervorragende Gastgeberin. Hilfreich aber nicht aufdringlich. Das Zimmer ist klasse und das Bett ist super bequem. Die Gegend ist sehr ruhig und mit dem Bus Nr 20 ist mann in ca. 20 min in der Stadtmitte. Thanks and Big kiss and Hugh Jill

  • We (3 people) stayed with Jill for 2 nights during our road trip across the country, and it was wonderful! No complains whatsoever; Jill was very welcoming and accommodating, especially with getting our room set up and comfortable and letting us use the kitchen and laundry! She even went beyond and recommended great places to eat and great shows to see! We had a great time in Denver, thanks to her. I definitely recommend staying here, for short stays or long, I would absolutely do it again if I found myself in the area.

  • We had a great stay with Jill. She was super accommodating with developing circumstances. The room was nice and she had many things to make us feel at home anything for our comfort.

  • Jill's place was a great value indeed. The bus stop is close by, a short walk away. Lots of retail stores are just a short drive away. Jill was hospitable, and made me feel at home, and I could come and go at will. You can certainly pay much more and still not have all the comforts of home that Jill offers. Her driveway can accommodate a car, but ample parking is nearby on the street. Word of caution: don't park on the side of the street that is swept once a month if you don't want your car to be ticketed. But Jill gave me advice on how to fight it.

  • My boyfriend and I had a positive experience staying with Jill. She was patient and helpful when we needed it, and she gave us space when we needed it. Jill's is a bright, colorful, comfortable home in a pretty neighborhood, and I like that she keeps healthy food around, as I do. The room was comfortable, and we had what we needed, including anything else we asked for, like allergy medicine or scissors. We were able to come and go as needed, no problem. We enjoyed the privacy of the back patio/yard- not a well-organized space, but still peaceful and a nice place to sit, socialize, or look at the stars. Jill will steer you right on food! She sent us to a couple of places that I absolutely loved. We felt comfortable in Jill's home. There were a couple of other guests staying in the basement room while we were at Jill's, and they were very friendly, also helpful. Robert and I were pleased. Our stay with these relaxed people enhanced our wonderful trip to Colorado!

  • Jill was wonderful! We got in pretty late and she was very accommodating with us. The room was cozy and very comfortable. The shower was awesome (amazing water pressure)! Jill provided plenty of breakfast items. It was a wonderful stay!

  • My stay was a welcome rest for a traveler coming into Denver on a windswept stormy night. Jill was a generous host volunteering to pick me up at the bus stop. I heartily recommend the opportunity to meet and stay with Jill. A bonus is the wonderful art on her walls. Many thanks to Jill for making my vacation a relaxing sojourn and one to remember for the great people I have met along the way.

  • Jill and her home are delightful. Great location and it felt like staying at home. Jill is incredibly warm and helpful with cool things going on in Denver. We had a great time!

  • I felt very welcome by Jill. Like someone else said, staying at Jill's is like staying with a friend. She has a warm, friendly and easy going spirit. The room and bed were very comfortable and I slept like a baby. Her kitchen is stocked w/ everything you need and Jill shares whatever's in the fridge...lots of healthy food :) There are piles here and there but the place is clean. :) Also the bathroom is stocked w/ all sorts of wonderful spa like lotions, soaps, and hair products and the shower water pressure was great!

About
I am friendly and I love meeting people from all over the world. I have had guests from 26 different countries so far. I'm easy going and easy to get along with. I can be like staying with a friend of a friend, in that I am glad to take care of your needs, and give you pointers about Denver, (or pick you up from the bus) or also happy to leave you alone and grant you all the privacy you want (tell me.) My dog died and now I have no pets (boo hoo). I speak French well, some German and Spanish.
