I've written 12 books in this lovely, sunny home. Most of our inspiration comes from living close to Nature.
This is not a happy story. I rented Sunny Writers, approx. 1000 sq ft, bath, kitchen, a full small house. Prior to my arrival I was moved to OBIE,a much smaller and not particularly clean alternative. The hosts e-mail specified a private bath AND a shared kitchen in the main house. It turns out the bath was also in the main house. So, for the same money, and both the hostess and AIRBNB refused me any refund, I received a place one qtr the original size, no closet, no bathroom, and not very clean.
Alexia's home is close to the heart of Boulder but without the distraction. The neighborhood is quiet and within walking/biking distance of the CU campus, downtown Boulder, and Chautauqua Park.
The studio apartment is the former downstairs of a two story house. It is fairly spacious as far as studio apartments go, with an open floor plan including a queen bed, couch, table and chairs, bar and barstools, and office desk in the living space. The kitchen lacks a full oven/range, but has a two burner hotplate and decent toaster oven, sufficient for cooking small meals. Honestly, I was so overwhelmed by Boulder's dining that I really only used the kitchen for breakfast. There is also a washer/dryer unit in the utility closet, and plenty of closet/storage space. The plentiful windows allow quite a bit of natural light in, and the sunrise is amazing.
The hosts and their neighbors were more than friendly and I would return here in a heartbeat if I were staying in Boulder again.
Somewhat spartan but very comfortable vacation living space. Fantastic location on the very edge of Boulder right at the foot of the Flatirons. Very amiable and helpful hosts, and an excellent value for the price. If you are planning on doing your own cooking be aware that there is only a two-burner electric plate and a small toaster oven, so you may want to bring something like a small hibachi or grill. Good strong WiFi connection - although sometimes you have to go onto the deck to log on. Located very close to downtown, many hiking trails, excellent shopping, and many fine restaurants. Altogether, for the price, this vacation spot can't be beat in Boulder.
I wanted to let you know I got all settled in and loving all the nature sounds. :-) Love the birds chirping and sounds of the water. I am guessing a neighbor has a fountain pond and I just love it!
Thank you for extending the check out- I overslept a little bit. I was far too comfy and quiet compared to tent camping and a house for of family.
Thank you for your hospitality and many blessings to you and yours!
Alexia and Dr, Joel were the sweetest most considerate people ever! They both even took time out of their busy schedules to meet with me and give me advise about my mother's health. On top of it all, they were very clean! Hope to see you guys again soon.
