Terrific from the booking to the departure.

  • 5 of 5

The property is titled urban oasis and aptly so. We felt secluded from the day to day Boulder activity amongst gardens and tall spruces visible from the deck of the property. However we reached Pearl Street and other destinations in Boulder in minutes. The property was clean and the bed comfortable. We liked opening the windows and hearing the brook as we hit our pillows each evening. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, silverware and cooking utensils and we were able to host our family one evening of our stay. Though the space was a perfect size for the two of us we did accommodate the five of us in comfort for dinner cooking on the deck's barbecue.

There was even a bottle of wine on the counter with bottled water and a bowl of delicious nuts as well as the essential morning coffee. There was lots of reading material though our stay didn't have much leisure opportunity. We were disappointed not to have a wood fire in the stove but we are returning in a few months when I know that will be a priority. Oh, and the soaps were a lovely lingering fragrance on my hands throughout our stay. Strong recommendation and our returning is testament to that endorsement. Thank-you Carma for facilitating our stay. It was excellent!

City Club Guest House

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth stay, and as in the past it was delightful. You cannot beat the location - just a couple of blocks from Pearl Street; surrounded by Boulder Creek with its scenic trails and the historic City Club grounds. The staff is exemplary; going over & beyond to make you feel at home. Upon arrival I found fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and chocolates waiting for me along with coffee and home made banana bread for breakfast. If you stay be sure to have lunch at The City Club - as good as any of the top Boulder restaurants. It will always be my first choice when visiting Boulder.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

First time in Boulder and feel in love with the city. There's nothing like exploring the great state of Colorado and coming back to this place where you could easily walk to the downtown "old" district or Central Park or just hang out on the back patio listening to the creek right below you.

Excellent location. Spacious apartment. Responsive management and owners. Beware of air conditioner.

  • 4 of 5

The reservation process was effortless. Location is superb, both for downtown Boulder and the fabulous adjacent creek. Apartment is spacious. Kitchen is well-equipped. Bathroom is roomy and bright. Bed is comfortable. Management and owners are available and responsive. Perfectly dog-friendly. Wireless Internet is okay. Television is small, but it works fine. Patio deck is a bonus. Adjacent garden is spectacular.

Alerts: [1] There is no way to get back into the unit if you are on the patio with the door locked. This needs to be remedied with some way to get in if you accidentally lock yourself out. [2] The air conditioner is loud and inefficient. For the substantial price of this VRBO there needs to be a much better and quieter wall-mounted mini-split system with remote control. Boulder is hot in the summer, so you have been warned. [3] Stairway entry is tall, so you will be going up and down the stairs often, if that is a concern.

September 2013 Flood

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for a 6-night stay after the initial mountain flooding in Colorado during September 2013, and were concerned with how our stay might be affected. Happily, the living quarters were unaffected, and the property management staff worked overtime handling the natural emergency with aplomb. This wasn't easy,and we appreciated the efforts put forth to minimize any affect on our stay. The 1-bedroom unit is perfect for a couple. There are two main spaces, the living area (kitchen/dining/living) and bedroom. These two spaces are connected via operable wooden blinds. In addition, there is a bathroom with shower, a laundry area with 'walk-in closet' storage and an outside deck. The unit's location on the second floor provides additional security and privacy, but also limits the use of the space to persons able to walk up and down stairs. The location within Boulder is a plus. One can walk to the Pearl Street pedestrian mall. The Boulder bike path is within a block, and follows Boulder Creek at this location. Our stay was too short, despite the flood, and we highly recommend this property!

Perfect Boulder Base Camp!

  • 5 of 5

The guesthouse was perfect. Clean, spacious, and all the amenities and little extras you might ever want for. The location is perfect, it feels secluded, but is just a short walk from the Pearl Street mall. And it's hard to be falling asleep to the sound of Boulder Creek in the background. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we joked about moving in, permanently.
