The location can't be beat! This is a centrally located, downtown Boulder apartment in a historic Victorian home. Located on a quiet dead-end block, traffic is minimal. Yet you are only a minute walk to the wonderful Pearl Street Mall. The Mall is an outdoor walking area full of shops, galleries, restaurants and street performers. It shouldn't be missed!
The apartment is well appointed with everything you will need to make your stay comfortable, including linens & towels. This is the third season on VRBO, and the apartment has earned rave reviews for it's charm, cleanliness, location, and other unique features.
There are 2 large bedrooms, each with a queen bed. The front bedroom has a private balcony, that overlooks 17th Street and has a view of The Flat Irons! There's a central living room that has a small dining table (seats 2). Off the living room is the efficiency kitchen with dishwasher, oven, microwave and refrigerator, so you don't have to eat out for every meal, unless, of course you want to! A downstairs foyer provides ample room to store bikes and throw your shoes off. A wide staircase leads you up to your apartment on the 2nd floor.
Although not huge, the apartment offers more space and much more natural light and charm than you will find in the typical hotel room. You will find it to be a well cared for and homey environment for your stay in Boulder... a peaceful retreat in a pleasant and quiet neighborhood.
One of the most unique qualities of this apartment is the beautiful gardens that surround the back and side yard. Planted to bloom at different times of year, you'll be thrilled with the variety of flowers that you find, throughout the spring and summer. There's a BBQ grill for you to use and seating for 6+. Throw an outdoor BBQ with friends, or sit out and enjoy the birds and butterflies that frequent the yard.
The internet is blazingly fast Comcast Business class. There's no TV in this apartment, which gives you the opportunity to clear your mind and defuse, in this quintessential Boulder home. The apartment is professionally cleaned before you arrive, so you can enjoy a sanitary and comfortable stay.
This property carries an up-to-date rental license with the City Of Boulder.
David and Dominique are the proud owners of 2228 17th Street. We're new to the neighborhood ourselves, and are probably drawn to the area for the same reasons you are!

Boulder is an amazing place, full of energetic, athletic and inspiring people!
This home is incredibly close to Pearl Street (2-3 minutes walk to the Pearl Street Mall). It's also very close to Ideal Market (owned by Whole Foods).
It's on a dead end block, which means there is little traffic out front. That keeps it incredibly serene, even during peak hours.
This was a great location, my daugher and I went out for a little visit to check out the town, the only driving we did was to find great places to hike. All the food and shopping you would need is within walking distance, and I found everyone very friendly. The beds were very comfortable and the place was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting a nice vacation that is a little out of the way from all the traffic, but a nice stroll through the neighborhood and you are on Pearl Street.
My fiance and a friend came to Boulder for the weekend to attend the wedding of a mutual friend. The location of the apartment stands out the most being so centrally located to Pearl Street, coffee shops, groceries, etc. The apartment was clean when we arrived on Friday afternoon and perfect for people who are planning on being out most of the stay. There is not a ton of space for socializing and hanging out, although we loved being able to sit outside on the balcony and enjoy the quiet neighborhood and views of the Flatirons.
This place was exactly what I hoped. 5-10 minutes walk to much of the greatness of Boulder. 15-20 minutes walk to Mt. Sanitas hiking trails. The balcony is perfect for sitting, reading, gazing at the Flatirons, and enjoying various beverages. The kitchen is small, but met our needs. There were only 2 of us, but the second bedroom was nice to have as an out of the way place to setup the laptop, and take care of the little bit of work that we had to do when there. We're looking forward to the next visit!
My wife, 22 year old daughter and I spent 3 nights in David's rental in late July.The 2 bedroom unit was in a very good location within a few blocks of Pearl Street. The apartment was clean and comfortable. David was very accommodating,Allowing us to enter the apartment early since we arrived earlier than expected from the airport. I would recommend staying there when in Boulder. Surely, much more affordable than staying in a Boulder hotel ( especially since we would have needed 2 rooms) and the quiet location really suited our needs.
Wir verbrachten wunderbare 14 Tage in Davids Apartment. Die Betten waren sehr bequem, die Schlafzimmer geraeumig und gut ausgestattet. Auch in der Kueche war alles, was man braucht, vorhanden. Vielleicht waere ein Wasserkocher noch angebracht, dann braucht man das Wasser nicht auf dem Herd zu kochen. David war ausgesprochen hilfsbereit. Bei Fragen bekamen wir sofort Antwort und er kuemmerte sich sofort um alles, worum wir baten. Weil wir so lange gemietet hatten, veranlasste er sogar eine erneute Reinigung und liess Bettwaesche und Handtuecher wechseln.
Der einzige negative Punkt war die Nutzung der Aussenmoebel, die staendig von den Langzeitmietern besetzt wurden. So nutzten wir sie gar nicht, obwohl es uns zustand. Ich denke, wenn wir David darueber informiert haetten, was wir aber nicht taten, haette er sich auch darum in unserem Sinne gekuemmert.
Alles in allem kann ich diese wunderbar zentral und dennoch sehr ruhig gelegene Wohnung nur empfehlen. Als Hinweis fuer Familien mit kleinen Kindern: es fuehrt eine Treppe ins Apartment.
I would give the location a five star...blocks to Pearl street but far enough away to be quiet. The street is gorgeous as is the home the apt is located in. The apartment is comfortable and certainly large enough to accommodate a family, but the apt. lacked many of the amenities that other VRBO properties we've stayed at typically have....example no tv (not an issue for us) but the kitchen had just a couple spoons, forks--not sets so we couldn't all eat at once, no vacuum, broom, iron, etc. When you have children and are staying for 5 days as we did...those are essential. Also, the hot and cold on the bath are not labled correctly...a small issue but can be dangerous when trying to bathe little ones. We notified the owner upon our arrival that there were dirty razor blades left in the bathroom and the silverware were dirty and he was extremely responsive and had the place cleaned, which was great, but it was a bit annoying after flying cross country not to be able to just settle in right away and relax with a take out dinner.
