We rented this beautiful home for three months to be near our children and grandchildren. The home is located on a very quiet residential street, a short walk from the south end of CSU. Despite its proximity to campus, the immediate area has no student housing--instead, the homes are family-owned & occupied. When we first saw the street, we thought of the set for Desperate Housewives--the homes are beautifully maintained and the development relatively recent (70s). The house itself is unusual for its beautiful design, woodwork, tile floors, and conservatory (full of geraniums), with many Italianate elements. (You need to water the plants a couple of times a week, which doesn't take long). The owners chose to trust their tenants and left many of their personal belongings in situ, clearing plenty of space in closets, drawers, bathrooms, etc. for their temporary guests. One has the sense that they have just gone away for the weekend. We enjoyed this lived in feeling, in contrast to the rather sterile ambience of other vacation homes we have rented. The photo gives you a sense of the general feel of the home. There is a great library & nice selection of CDs. A couple of the rooms (owners' studies) are closed off, but that still leaves three bedrooms. The bathrooms are large and well-appointed, if that matters to you. The backyard faces a pond, with attendant wildlife. We saw beaver and cranes, not to mention geese, snapping turtles, ducks, and the more common denizens of pond life. Access to a great bike path--and the whole Ft. Collins trail system--is just around the corner. Our grandchildren loved to visit. We looked at a number of properties before choosing this one--it was both more appealing and more reasonable than most we looked at. Our communications with the property manager were cordial, and he kept us well informed when he was coming by to mow the lawn, etc. We certainly recommend this property and will likely rent it again in the future if it is available.
