Boulder House Rental Photos and Description

Charming, expansive 1940s bungalow in immaculate original condition. Cove ceilings, hardwood floors, beautiful light, connected living room/dining room/kitchen with hand made flagstone wood burning fireplace. Living room and 2 bedrooms look out onto magical garden with mature trees and shrubs, flowers, rock garden, and succulents, gas grill, patio table and chairs.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots & pans, baking dishes & pans, cooking utensils, small kitchen appliances (blender, french press and/or electric coffee maker, toaster, etc), kettle, mixing bowls, serving bowls, measuring cups and spoons, etc. Dishes, flatware, glasses, mugs, pepper mill, creamer & sugar bowl, and place mats are also furnished.

All 4 bedrooms are appointed with brand new memory foam pillow-top mattresses with natural bamboo ticking. There are 3 King Bedrooms and 1 Queen bedroom. 2 King Bedrooms and 1 Queen bedroom are upstairs and there is a door between one of the King bedrooms and the Queen bedroom, which can be an ideal set up if you are traveling with a baby or young children.

Downstairs there is also a second kitchen (although it will not be furnished with cooking supplies), the second bathroom, and a second patio area as this level is walk-out.

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!

This house is peaceful and quiet in one of downtown Boulder's most desirable neighborhoods, Newlands, which is anchored by North Boulder Park where there is a playground, ball field, outdoor BBQ grills and picnic tables, acres of grass, and even cross country skiing in the Winter. It's also right next to the downtown Pearl Street commercial district where all the shops and restaurants are.

This house has 3 King bedrooms, which is unique in this category. It means that you and your friends or family can all get a great night's rest and spread out! There is also a second kitchen at this house, which could be ideal for the holidays or celebrations.

CLEAN, QUIET, SPACIOUS, PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to rent 3 different houses from Whitney on our trips to Boulder for a class we attended. Each and every one was so spacious, beautiful, well appointed and quiet. Being nestled between the hiking trails and the Recreation center allowed us to get daily exercise no matter what the weather. She even made sure we had our favorite cast iron pan in our new homes. She could not have been more helpful or accommodating.
I would highly recommend renting from her lovely family!

SPACIOUS, CLEAN, AFFORDABLE AND AWESOME LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
Boulder is all about the outdoors! Be it hiking, enjoying the breweries and restaurants or walking along Pearl, Walnut and Spruce (we loved the side streets and found an awesome shop called Nod & Rose), we found ourselves enjoying the fresh mountain air and wishing we lived here.
This house isn't going to wow you with amazing art, modern architecture and big screen tvs, but we didn't come to boulder to hang out in the house. What we wanted was a clean open home with big comfortable beds, lots of bedrooms and a long table with room for all. . . . at a great price! Check, check, check and check plus. When it comes down to it what else do you need?

Oh yeah location. The house is close to downtown, it's a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute walk the bus line, (which is an awesome professional commuter system not like in most towns) AND amazing hiking is only one block away. We took the "goat trail" up to Mt. Sanitas for a crisp hike that gets the heart going and provides the best views of the city.

We didn't even take advantage of the private yard because we were on the go so much but if you have kids it would be a safe play environment blocked off from the street.

So overall this is a great house for a lot of families or a guys or girls trip.

LARGE HOUSE AT BASE OF MT. SANITAS

  • 4 of 5
Love the privacy and the large yard afforded by the fence along 4th street. House was nicely appointed and well equipped, with large beds and plenty of room to spread out.

It was perfect for what we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Only reason it's not "excellent" is the living room/dining room is on the small side and there were no wall hangings, which was a little odd. But otherwise it was great.

Owner's Response: Hi Aron, thanks for your review! I'm glad you and your family enjoyed our place :-)

For guests considering this property, we're always looking for ways to improve our guests' experience, so we've upgraded the dining table, added a rug, lounge chair, and new art in the living room, since this guest's stay. So now there is some more seating in the living room, and a bit more color and character too :-)

LOVELY PROPERTY WITH HUGE PRIVATE YARD

  • 5 of 5
Firstly, Whitney is a gem. She owns nine properties in Boulder and I believe this is her latest. Whitney was such a pleasure to work with. We kept changing dates, length of stay, etc. and she was always happy to accommodate.

About the house: cute, clean, well-maintained and stocked with cooking essentials. Small washer and dryer, coffee maker, microwave, wifi, with plenty of plates, silverware, soap, towels, etc. Loads of cabinet space in the kitchen too.

The bedrooms were all large enough to accommodate full size cribs (we rented from zbaby) and our two boys LOVED playing outdoors. The property is fenced in so we were comfortable letting them play. If you don't know Boulder, you'll be happy to know that 4th St is quiet, nestled against the mountains, but walking distance to the North Boulder playground and a short 5 minute drive to shops (Ideal market, wine store, etc.)

The property also has a basement which has been recently refinished. Downstairs there are two nice bedrooms, a kitchen, and more space than a family could ever need. So this is actually a five bedroom house.

This is not a luxury property, but completely comfortable and nicely furnished. Everything felt brand new, all the way to the high thread count sheets and white duvets.

After our stay at Whitney's, we moved into our "real" house in Boulder, just a few blocks away. My 2.5 year old keeps asking to go back to Whitney's.

I would strongly recommend this property to any family or group of friends looking for a quiet respite in the city of Boulder.

Clean, Comfortable Cottage with lots of Sun in Boulder's Best Neighborhood just steps to Mountains

I said most of it in the title, but this place was great! We spent a month here last summer and loved every minute of it. Was hard to leave. The place was super clean and had very comfortable furnishings. Had tons of windows that let in lots of light and out every window you see tons of green from the pretty landscaping all around house. Three large bedrooms. Hardwood floors and spacious kitchen with lots of storage was def a plus. Front yard and sitting area with grill was really nice to hang out in and the swamp cooler did a great job cooling the house on warm days. House is located right on 4th street (a bicycle throughfare) in a beautiful mountain neighborhood. You are a block's walk (if that) to awesome hiking trails and it's so pretty and quiet in afternoons/evenings. Great for strolling on the street or hiking up mountain a little way to watch sunset. All this is great, but you're still so close to downtown and Pearl St and Cu campus. Easy walk to North Boulder Park or shopping/dining areas. Really great location. Would recommend to anyone visiting or staying in Boulder. Great spot. Still missing it.
