Perfect Getaway!

I rented this house for my mother, bridesmaids, and I to stay in while we were in Denver picking out dresses. It was the perfect choice!

Everything was so clean and well taken care of. The kitchen, though tiny, was incredibly well equiped, even down to the olive oil, which I had forgotten to bring!

We stayed for three nights, ate breakfast and prepared dinner at the house every night, and were able to relax and just hang out.

It was quiet, perfect for sleeping, the front and back yards were both so relaxing, and yet it is very close to everything (especially shopping at Cherry Creek!).
I would definitely reccomend this house to anyone looking to get away, and yet be close to everything, in Denver.

Lovely, comfortable home in quiet neighborhood

We went to Denver for a family vacation and found the most wonderful place to stay. Linda's home is located in what I would consider an upcoming neighborhood with an elementary school just a block away. It was sweet seeing the families walking their children to school in the mornings as we enjoyed coffee on the front porch.

The house is just the right size - three bedrooms, a living room, dining room, front and back porch, and small kitchen. The basement has been remodeled nicely creating a large master bedroom with attached large bathroom. We were there with grown children and having the separation of the master down and the other bedrooms up made it comfortable for everyone. If you have small children, this house would be perfect. She has everything a child could want from toys to high chair to an additional lower handle for little hands on the back door.

Linda has equipped the house with everything that makes a stay comfortable, from the well-stocked kitchen (blender, coffee maker, pots/pans, plastic ware, fresh sponge) to the laundry supplies, bathroom supplies and umbrellas hanging by the backdoor. I was pleasantly surprised to find ground coffee in the freezer for our enjoyment in the mornings.

Location, location, location. The home is easy to find and close to the Cherry Creek shopping district, parks, zoo, museums and a simple drive to downtown and all it offers.

I would highly recommend Velma's Cottage to anyone looking for a place to stay near downtown Denver. (But stay away anyone who is looking for a party house - this is not for you!)

Christmas at Velma's Guest House

My family of 5 (including 3 children, 14, 11 & 9) had a wonderful time during the Christmas holiday at Velma's Guest House! Linda thought of everything - including some holiday decorating, which really made it feel more like home - and we loved the house from the moment we walked in. My sister lives in Aurora and the house was at a perfect location for us - easy drive to my sister's, close to neighborhood restaurants and quick access to main streets, while still being in a neighborhood. Being the warm-weather people we are (we are from Houston), we did not get to walk around the neighborhood as much as we would have liked :) - but we look forward to coming back during warmer weather and doing that! We were priviledged to meet Linda when we arrived and we couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. We all highly recommend Velma's Guest House!!

Another great stay

This is our second time staying in this wonderful home. We have family in the Denver area but know that staying with them (on a coach, on the floor, on a pull out) makes for cranky parents and tired children. The home is very comfortable. The neighborhood is charming. We even hung out with one of the neighbors after his 2 year old wandered up on the porch while we enjoying a glass of wine on the porch swing. The boys (10 and 11) enjoyed walking to the local establishments (including The Daily Scoop for homemade ice cream) and we enjoyed the lovely back yard after they went to bed. There is no doubt that we will be back at Velma's the next time we are back in Denver.

We cannot thank you enough for the use of your lovely home during our recent vacation in Denver. The home itself was exceptional from the comfort of its furnishings to the convenience of its location. We were all very comfortable. Coming "home" at the end of a busy vacation day was something we anticipated all week. Hopefully, we followed all of your guidelines to return the house
to you in the excellent condition in which we found it.

One suggestion: We were doing online searching for things to do and couldn't print any of the tickets ... maybe including a printer and one cartridge with the rental fee would help those who don't know people in town and who need their tickets printed.

Anyway, thank you again very much for your contribution to our 2012 vacation in Denver!!
Owner's Response: Having a printer at the home is a nice idea...I will add that to the "wish list".
