The Space

Our bright 1 bedroom apartment is close to everything! We are a 7 minute walk from the 16th St. Mall (and free mall ride that will take you to LoDo). There is a liquor store and an organic supermarket across the street. 15 minutes from City and Cheeseman Parks. 2 minutes from well-known Denver bars and restaurants, and 30 seconds away from an arcade bar. Incredibly close to the Ogden and Fillmore theaters. Coin-op laundry available in the basement.

Our apartment is open and bright, includes WiFi, a TV with Netflix, a Wii, and local channels, full kitchen and most kitchen gadgets. We have a queen bed and also room for somebody on a small couch. Note: there have been some furniture changes since these pictures were taken; futon is now a couch, bookshelf has shifted and there is an extra desk in the living room since we have both returned to school! Street parking is usually easy to find, especially on weekends, and we are right across from a police station.

One note: the shared space of the building our apartment is in is a bit grungy and smells strongly of cigarette smoke. It is unpleasant, but it does not penetrate through to our apartment.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This place was great, all you need. Your close to everything downtown and can walk (we're from New York where we walk everywhere) or there's bike stations everywhere. There's a liquor store and restaurants a block away. Netflix was easy to access for when we wanted to recharge and chill. The bed was comfy and they offer you breakfast and coffee if you'd like. The only downside is no ac (still comfortable even when it got to 90 during the day) and the hot water takes a while to heat up (as it does at our house). So it's definitely not an inconvenience or anything. We'll definitely stay again!

  • the hosts were good at communicating information about the city. the apartment was what we expected,no surprises. It was convieinet [sic] to the downtown which is what we needed. The neighborhood was fine and the public transportation was great [ free mall ride,buses etc.] We would rent again from Sara and Josh.

  • We had a great time here. Its good and bad that the apartment is so close to the bars, but maybe that was because it was St. Patrick's Day.

  • Staying at Sara and Josh's place was amazing! The location is absolutely perfect getting in and out of the city. Not to mention the great bars (the 1up - arcade bar, Sancho's Broken Arrow - dive bar with great music) and food (Slice Works) nearby. We used Lyft getting around the city and their place is in a convenient spot for pickups and dropoffs. There is a market about 3 blocks from their place (a bit pricey but walkable distance). Overall location-wise, perfect!

    The home was just as awesome. They were kind to welcome us to their fridge (eggs, coffee, and what not) - as well as provide us with comfortable sleeping arrangements. There were 3 of us so we made use of their sofa which was quite comfortable. The amenities were great and they made it welcoming on arrival.

  • Sara and Josh's apartment was awesome! If you want to be any closer to downtown and you better bring a sleeping bag and find a cozy spot on the street. Parking was a little tricky during the week but we made it work. The street they are on can be a little scary at night, so just don't walk around alone and you'll be okay. The apartment was cute, clean and cozy. I love that the decorations from around the world! Checking in and out could not have been easier. I absolutely recommend staying here if you want to see Denver!

  • When we booked Sara and Josh's place, we were hoping to experience a taste of authentic urban Denver living, and that's EXACTLY what we got. Their place was in the perfect location for us. There are so many great shops, restaurants, bars, and music venues right in their neighborhood. It's also a short walk to the 16th street mall, where you can catch the free mall ride to Union Station and explore the entire city without having to drive.

    Sara and Josh were great hosts. Their well-written and thorough instructions made checking in a breeze, and they were always very quick with a response when we had any questions. Their apartment is clean and well-furnished, and aside from some very minor late-night climate control issues, we didn't have any problems the entire week and felt very much safe and at home there. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sara and Josh's place to anyone. Great place, great hosts, great city!

  • Sara's apartment is in a great location. There are a lot of restaurants and bars in walking distance, and it's an easy walk into downtown, to the free 16th st mall shuttle, or over to City Park. The apartment is cozy - it's a little smaller than what I imagined from the photos but very cute and comfortable.

  • What a great time we had! Sara's place was so charming and clean. We felt very comfortable there and really enjoyed our stay! Also, the location was PERFECT! We really liked walking right around the block for drinks at Sancho's Broken Arrow, a Grateful Dead-themed dive bar. Lots of fun things to do and see right in the neighborhood. Also, Sara was really easy to get in touch with and was always available if we had any questions. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to stay in the downtown Denver area!

  • The apartment was very conveniently located; it had great access to downtown Denver businesses bars and restaurants; and the wifi was very easy to use. It was cute and comfortable. The only potential drawbacks to the apartment might be a lack of a TV, and a functional but awkward air conditioning arrangement (neither of which were problems for me). Sara and Josh were very responsive, nice and helpful and I would definitely consider staying at the apartment if I were ever in Denver again.
