Overview

Boulder House Rental Photos and Description

Located on open space, nature preserve, lake and hiking trails in a lovely neighborhood just a few miles North of downtown. A block to bus line on Broadway and grocery, coffee shop and several restaurants.

Our home is spacious, warm, comfortable, informal while elegant, and decorated with eclectic art from our travels around the world. It is large - over 5,000 sq feet. Every room is large, bright and spacious. It is a flexible home and will accommodate a few people without seeming overwhelming, or a several couples or a family. Large offices can easily be used as bedrooms. Sleeping lofts in several rooms delight children as sleeping and playing spaces. Parks/playing fields and playgrounds are in walking distance. Hiking and biking trails are literally right out the door. Views of the lake and foothills from almost every room! Swamp cooler keeps our home comfortable in Summer.

The main floor has a living room that opens to the dining room with table which seats eight. The large airy kitchen has a counter and a comfy corner with a couch and chair and leads to the spacious deck, with dining and coach and chairs and hot tub over looking the lake. This floor also has a 15 x 30 very open living room which is great for kids, yoga, music and hanging out - there is also an extra very comfy queen size bed here. Laundry and 3/4 bath completes this level.

The lower level has a 15x30 bamboo floored room with a sectional sofa and a new pillow top queen bed.

The top floor has the spacious master suite with many windows and views of the lake, a comfortable and spacious TV room with double bed/couch and loft bed as well as two other large office /sleeping rooms with additional sleeping lofts. Additional double and queen beds can be arranged to meet your specific needs. Large bathroom and infrared sauna complete this level.

The house was re-modeled with non toxic materials and we use natural cleaning agents.

We do have a one week minimum ( a few shorter rentals still available for august - see calendar) and do not allow pets or smoking. We are not available for weddings or receptions on premises.

This is our primary residence and we rent when we are traveling. Most often Winter, Spring and Summer. Please check our calendar for specific availability.

About judith ansara

We are coaches, leadership consultants and run retreats on skillful relationships for couples. We are also artist/musician/dancer. We are blessed to be able to travel to wonderful places to teach which is why you have the option of renting our wonderful home. Two of our three grown children and our 7 yr old grandson live here in Boulder.

judith ansara purchased this house in 1988

Why judith ansara chose Boulder

We have lived in Boulder for 28 years and in this home for 25. We are often told we have the best house and location in Boulder. To be able to see the lake from every window, walk outside, climb the hills and still be just a few minutes from all the action downtown-- it doesn't get better than this! We remodeled it recently and it is beautiful and very comfortable.

What makes this house unique

Ourr home is a treasure we are happy to share. Mornings and evenings in the hot tub watching the changing skies. Dinner on the deck, reading napping, spending time with friends and family; or off exploring. The views from inside are always reminding us of the beauty of where we live. Our large light-filled rooms offer spaciousness and privacy while also making it easy and comfortable to be together.

Perfect for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our family - eight 60 year old cousins - had a fabulous time for six days, five nights at this beautiful home in Boulder. We could not have been more pleased with the overall look and feel of the home (inside and out), the layout, the stunning views, and the quiet, peaceful nature of the location were second to none. The home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac, which surprised us a bit because when we first looked at the online pictures we thought it was going to be "out in the country." Alas, once we walked into the house we were stunned to find ourselves looking out onto a glorious lake, beautiful hills, walking paths, gorgeous trees, etc. We took many walks out our backdoor and truly enjoyed being in a outdoor wonderland. What made the location nice was that we could easily go into downtown or access roads to the major attractions of this beautiful area. We cooked most every meal in and found the kitchen (as BBQ) to be very well supplied with fully functioning, up-to-date appliances. We could sit outside on the large, covered deck and feel very connected to the beautiful outdoor. All beds were very comfortable, rooms were quiet and well situated in the home. Stephano, the on-premises manager greeted us warmly upon arrival and answered all our questions perfectly. He was a great resource. He lived in a basement flat and was "invisible" throughout. Yet, we knew we could get in touch if something came up. We loved our experience and truly hope to come back. I strongly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Bob, We are so glad our home worked so well for you and your family. Thanks for noting both the beauty of our home and its location with the combination of being able to hike out the door and yet get quickly into town or to other scenic areas for day trips. As this is our home - not a dedicated rental- we have set it up for us, and we do like nice things:)

Beautiful Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful home with all the amenities we needed, and more! It's close to town, making it easy to get to Pearl Street as well as all of the other downtown restaurants, shops, etc. It's also far enough away from town to have a peaceful, quiet vacation and close enough to the mountains to take a quick drive to Rocky Mtn National Park, etc. The house was exceptionally clean and well cared for - you can tell the owners take pride in their home. Thank you Judith for allowing us to stay in your home for the week!

Fantastic Home - Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We renting this fantastic home for a family gathering (group of 8). It is amazing. Just as beautiful as the pictures. The house had everthing we needed, and the owners are very accomodating. The location can't be beat in my opinion. Close to Downtown Boulder, but lots of open space due to it's location on the lake. I strongly recommend this rental.

Gorgeous and Reasonable VRBO

  • 5 of 5
Our company used this VRBO for a multi-day senior management meeting. The location is perfect - close to both downtown Boulder and the Front Range foothills. It's in a quiet neighborhood, so noise was not an issue for our presentations and meetings. The house was spacious and well-maintained.

The owners went out of their way to accommodate our needs and ensure that the house was clean and organized upon our arrival. We would definitely stay at this location again and would recommend it to friends, family, and business contacts. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Wonderland Lake home

  • 5 of 5
Our group of nine had a great time this past week.The proximity to the open space, Wonderland Lake, Dakota Ridge, and the playground was perfect for our 4 grandkids, ages 4 to 5. Your supply of children toys in the open living room and the morning deer sightings were unexpected bonuses, as were the spices, condiments and other home amenities. We ate all of our meals and the grandkids produced their drawings on the porch overlooking Dakota Ridge and the Wonderland Lake-no bugs. What great memories we will keep.

Beautiful house and location for family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our party of four adults, one 8 year-old, one 2.5 year-old, and one 6 month old had a wonderful time at this beautiful, well-maintained property. The property manager lives downstairs and is readily available if you need help (which we didn't), but you will not be aware of his presence at all. Breakfast in the kitchen or on the deck looking out over the lake was my favorite part of the day. Gigantic yoga/playroom was awesome for the kids, who spent hours rolling around on the exercise balls. There are also toys and kids books.

Owner's Response: Thanks Adrienne - I am so glad our home worked so well for you and your family. I smile just thinking of the little ones rolling around on the exercise balls and enjoying the toys and books. We spent many happy hours with our kids and now our grandson in just such activity!

All the best
