MAGICAL MAPLETON CORNER HOME - CENTRAL DOWNTOWN - WOODLAND SETTING

Boulder House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with big garden

This charming, inviting home is nestled on a premier corner in downtown Boulder’s hip and historic Whittier neighborhood. The property’s mature broadleaf trees, fruit trees, and whimsical landscaping evoke the feeling of an enchanted forest in the heart of the city.

Stroll to the Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall, CU/Folsom Field, Boulder Farmers’ Market, Spruce Pool, Whole Foods Market, McGuckin Hardware, and 29th Street Mall (Apple Store, Sephora, Target, Victoria’s Secret, Ann Taylor, Sur La Table, Home Depot). Take advantage of Boulder’s world-renowned bike path system, clean and punctual public transportation, and B-cycle public bike share program. You don’t need a car when you stay here! (Although there is plenty of off-street parking at the house.)

All 4 bedrooms are appointed with brand new pillow-top mattresses with natural bamboo ticking and the highest quality mattress protectors. Downstairs there are 2 queen bedrooms. Upstairs there is 1 king bedroom and 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds. There is also a travel crib available for your baby. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO LONGER A FUTON IN THE LIVING ROOM. WE REPLACED IT WITH A COUCH AND OTTOMAN!

There are 2 full bathrooms, 1 downstairs and 1 upstairs. Step stool and potty provided for children. The laundry room off of the kitchen has a high efficiency washer and dryer.

The sweet kitchen is fully outfitted for cooking meals with pots & pans, small kitchen appliances (blender, coffee maker, toaster, etc), kettle, mixing bowls, cooking utensils, baking dishes, serving dishes, measuring cups and spoons, etc. Dishes, flatware, glasses, mugs, salt & pepper mills, creamer & sugar bowl, and placemats are also furnished. We provide kids’ plates, cups, cutlery and a high chair so it will be easy to take care of little ones. Enjoy peek-a-boo views of the foothills through the kitchen sink window box, a nice view to gaze at while cooking and cleaning up.

The living/dining room is the most historic part of the house and is full of character with its wood trim and original pine wide plank floors. It is outfitted with a new Samsung LED HDTV with Premium HD Cable including HBO and Apple TV with Netflix. There is also secure high-speed wireless internet.

About Whitney Sinclair

Oliver is from New York City but grew up in Boulder while Whitney is from LA. We met at CU where we both graduated from the Film School. We enjoy travel, real estate, interior design, photography, cooking, gardening, hiking, biking, swimming, delicious restaurants, family, friends, and film!

Why Whitney Sinclair chose Boulder

This home is a wonderful choice for your visit to Boulder for many reasons. It's proximity to the downtown Pearl Street Mall area and the new 29th St Mall is ideal, just walk 5 blocks East or West to be in the heart of either district. Our Mapleton home is on a generous corner lot with lots of trees so you have a feeling of being surrounded by nature while you're staying right downtown. It exudes Colorado charm and character with original wood plank floors and custom pine trim throughout. The original part of the home was first a miner's cabin in the late 1800s, so the house is an authentic part of Colorado history, and really feels quintessentially Rocky Mountain.

What makes this house unique

One of the best things about this house is how it is quiet and peaceful, yet right in the middle of the best that Boulder has to offer. It's so easy to walk to lunch, dinner, the coffee shop, grocery store, or farmers market because it is directly between the Historic Pearl Street Mall and the new 29th Street Mall where the Apple Store, Whole Foods, Traders Joe's (April 2014), Sephora, Lululemon, the Century movie theater and more are.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. Wonderful location in downtown Boulder area with ample amenities for our entire crew of older and younger adults.

Not Great!

  • 2 of 5
Not sure where the other people who reviewed this property were staying but our experience was a lot different.....
The furniture was serviceable but shabby and old. The carpets upstairs were stained and grubby. The waterproof (?) sheeting on the main bed had strange burnt plastic patches that created lumpy spiky bits under the sheet that were impossible to sleep on. The toilet overflowed into the laundry on the second day we were there and although the owners sorted it out promptly, they did imply that we had used the incorrect washing soap and therefore been responsible for the overflow. The house is also on an extremely busy road and so the sound of traffic was a constant intrusion. Although the house sleeps 8 the living area is extremely small for 8 people and the dining table was small and round with only 4 chairs.
My sister booked the house for 7 days and then later added an additional 2 days on to the booking. Early on the morning of the 8th day, the owners knocked on the door, and then proceeded to enter the house while my husband and I were upstairs in the bathroom and hollered at us to come downstairs. They demanded to know why we were still there and stated that our booking had expired the previous day. It seems a massive oversight to me that they should not know the booking had been extended and we were legitimately staying there. A pretty rude awakening for us.
Fortunately for us we spent most of our time at my sister's house in Mapleton and just came to the house to sleep, but I thought it worth reviewing for those potentially thinking of staying here in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Gail,
I'm so sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at our house. It's a rustic house, and so we chose furniture to go with that rustic feel. We ask guests to remove their shoes, and we have the carpets cleaned every 8-10 weeks, but still carpets get a lot of wear and tear in vacation rental properties.
It sounds like a previous guest damaged the waterproof mattress protector which I'm really sorry about. Unfortunately, guests often don't let us know about damage, or even try to hide it, to avoid loosing their security deposit. I wish you would have let me know when we spoke so that I could have replaced it for you immediately which would have been super easy to take care of.
Without telling anything to our plumber, he deduced by looking at the pipes with a camera scope that the problem happened because our guests had been putting too much soap in the high-effeciency washing machine. This created so much sudsy gas in the pipes that the water from the toilet had nowhere to go and thus backed up. We have never had this problem before, and once we let the guests know not to use so much detergent, they didn't have any more plumbing problems. I think this was an honest mistake, but I regret that this guest is implying that I made this up.
Regarding the street, I gave this guest's sister (a Boulder local) the address so that she could know the exact location before finalizing her reservation. It's on the corner of Folsom (2 lanes each way) and Mapleton (literally the best street in Boulder). The house is pretty peaceful anyway, with a bit of pick-up in traffic in the morning and at about 5pm.
As a historic home, the original part of the house is a miner's cabin from the 1860s, so the living/dining area is on the small side, but that is just part of this property. What you loose in modern, open spaces, you gain in charm, character, and history.
I am truly sorry about the mix-up with the extension of your reservation, but when your sister called to add 2 more nights, I was in the car, on a road trip with my family. When I asked her to submit a new reservation request for the 2 addt'l nights, she told me that she is also a vrbo owner, and couldn't I just add a payment request so that she didn't have to submit a new inquiry. I obliged her, but this is precisely why the reservation didn't get recorded properly. Even so, we instantly sent you a $100 credit on the morning of the booking mix-up, which I hope you used to enjoy your time here in Boulder.

Wedding Oasis!!

  • 5 of 5
Our home away from home! We spent 10 glorious days in this very upscale property when our son was married to his longtime girlfriend in Lyons. They have a smaller condo in Boulder so this was the absolute perfect place for our extended east coast family to stay. The home is stocked with all the consumable toiletry items you would expect from a large hotel. The large kitchen/food prep area was more than outstanding with all the comforts of home. With such a large group (8) we cooked many meals, most of them outside on the grill. The large backyard area, picnic table and all the chairs made for a great social gathering of friends from out of town and the brides family. The home internet/technology suite was beyond expectation! With apple tv we were able to view the wedding photos from our phones and ipad. I even was able to keep up with the Braves on MLB-TV via apple tv. The owners were more than accommodating to our every request!! Also the evaporative cooler/fan keep us in total comfort during some of the warmer Colorado summer days!!! In summation a very stellar return on our investment! We'd love to stay there again!!

Boulder Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Nice house, conveniently located near the Pearl Street area. Easy access to stores and highways to additional interesting sightseeing locations (Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, for example). Whitney was attentive to our needs and was very helpful. All in all, the house and Boulder was a great experience.

A lovely fall weekend in Boulder

  • 4 of 5
Our extended family enjoyed a lovely weekend at the Magical Mapleton Corner Home. The location was perfect for walking to town and to the football game at the CU stadium. There was a near by park that was enjoyed by our young people. The house was great. The sleeping quarters were well appointed and slept 8 nicely. The living area is small for 8 but the wonderful back yard takes up the slack in good weather which we were fortunate to have. The house was well appointed and met our expectations. The owners were most helpful answering questions and providing information.
We would recommend this property to others
