Boulder House Rental Photos and Description

only Summer rentals left Aug 9th-15th & Aug 22-27th

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.

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

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.

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.

Fantastic Home - Great Location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
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
  • Submitted: Jan 21, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
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
  • Submitted: Aug 24, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
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
  • Submitted: Aug 23, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
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
