Our beautiful, quiet neighborhood is ideal for a relaxing stay. We receive compliment after compliment on our clean and organized VRBO. We want the house to feel special for our guests upon arrival, because it holds memories for us! Come and stay at Colorful Colorado and make family memories of your own.

With hardwood and tile floors, large windows for letting in the warm Colorado sunshine, designer lighting, newly remodeled kitchen complete with large Corian counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast bar. The large dine-in kitchen blends effortlessly into the living room for entertaining. New leather sectional, new queen beds with superior quality memory foam, new bed coverings, new small kitchen appliances, and art from local artists. **Brand new sheets and pillows - just added in Aug. 2014!!! ***New gas fireplace added Sept. 2014!!!

When you, your maid of honor, bridesmaids, and mother can comfortably get ready for the big day with 3 bathrooms and a large walk-in dressing closet? Hang your gown up high off the floor in a lockable closet/room (where nothing can happen to it), instead of the back of the door in a hotel room, (where it can fall off and get wrinkled or worse.)

About Chad Bowman

We are natives to Colorado Springs. We have three young children who love being outdoors, and exploring new places. We enjoy hiking, swimming, and traveling. Our vacation rental home is a reflection of our love for family, and our love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We live in town, and can offer lots of suggestions on where to eat, play, and have fun as a family!

Chad Bowman purchased this house in 2007

Why Chad Bowman chose Colorado Springs

The Colorful Colorado home was built in the Centennial Heights neighborhood in 1959. With wide streets, mature trees, large green lawns, long driveways, and large rectangular ranch style homes. It has all the charm and simplicity of the era, but is centrally located to all of the fun!

What makes this house unique

See more! Do more! Make the most of your vacation without wasting time driving long distances to all corners of the city. We are the ONLY VRBO near Palmer Park, and central to everything else! Feel like taking it easy? Stay in and watch a 3D movie relaxing on our leather sectional. Or take a walk to the trails in Palmer Park, right behind our house! We have many guests tell us how much they enjoy the natural wildlife our VRBO has! From several deer, birds, and squirrels that visit our property daily to seeing the elusive black squirrel right in our VRBO's backyard! Serenity in the heart of the city.

Apart from convenience, a quiet neighborhood, and an open floor plan that provides easy family fun; our home is priced to be family friendly while providing all of the luxuries you would expect at nicer hotels.

Our dine-in kitchen makes it perfect for planning the next day's events over a home cooked meal, and make a perfect setting for retelling the day's excitement!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jill and Chad,

Thank you so much for your hospitality. We enjoyed how well stocked the kitchen was, and how nicely you have decorated, plus the mattresses were so comfy! Also, all the instructions were all so clear, handy, and helpful.

P.S. We appreciated all the scriptures!

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, granddaughter, her friend, and one of our couple friends stayed here for 4 days during our recent trip to Colorado Springs. We were delighted with the home and all the amenities that really made this a comfortable, relaxing vacation. From the moment we walked in and found homemade cookies waiting for us, we felt right at home. There was plenty of room for the six of us to spread out and having a well-stocked kitchen made cooking most of our meals so convenient. The location made getting around the area very easy and was very close to our favorite local restaurant, Rocco's. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a nice, clean, and comfortable stay while visiting Colorado Springs! Thank you Chad and Jill for going above and beyond to make our stay one to remember!!

Beautiful and well stocked - felt like a home

  • of 5

My family recently stayed here and found it very comfortable. Chad and Jill thought of everything from cooking to entertainment. It really felt like a home, not just a rental. Having the extra room and amenities of a house was so much better than staying in s hotel !

Our trip to Colorado Springs was for my Mother-In-Law's 80th Birthday. The home was very comfortable. The kitchen was a great place to cook in. The only thing needed was maybe a toaster. The beds were comfortable and having 3 bathrooms was a nice. My mother is in a walker and there was nowhere she could not go as the rooms were easily accessible for her. We will come back again if we are ever in the neighborhood. By the way, the cookies were delicious. Thanks for that added touch.

the Colorado experience

  • 5 of 5

the house is complete with all the necessary amenities that a tourist might need, whether you are from Asia, Europe, Africa or within the united states. There is a certain coziness that one can feel as you enter the house. The costumer support for weather, places To go and safety is remarkably of high standard. I recommend this place highly and hopefully to come back again.

Wonderful Colorado Springs location and comfortable, charming place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in comfortable, immaculate, well-equipped and charming surroundings in a great location. It was SO much more relaxing than a hotel or motel and beautifully appointed for a largish group -- kids would also be very comfortable here although we were all adults. Great walking at a gorgeous park up the street and easy access to everything Colorado Springs has to offer.
