BUNGALOW ASIO: CENTRAL BOULDER RETREAT, WALK TO TRAILS, SHOPS, AND DOWNTOWN

Boulder Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Newly available, newly renovated, 1938 bungalow in old north boulder. For the quality-minded traveler. An original farm house for the former fruit orchard in this area of town, 'Asio' is a dedicated vacation rental and owner operated. Asio is always available as a rental, meaning, we live in our home next door, available to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We welcome you to come enjoy the unique features of Bungalow Asio, Boulder, and the Front Range/Colorado mountain region.

Asio is an easy 1 mile walk to the Pearl Street Mall, also 1 mile from two different trailheads leading up into the foothills just west of town, and a six-minute walk to shops, cafes, banks, a bar, a pharmacy, a barber, and a really great grocery store.

Artist features inside and outside of Asio. It is 1200 sq. ft. and seems much larger. Chef's kitchen. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, Asio sleeps 8 people, is cozy for two and spacious for more.

You must be 26 or older to book Bungalow Asio. Children are welcome.

We have resided in Boulder since 1989, Greg originally from Minnesota and Donna from Maryland. We met here in Boulder while doing a meditation retreat and have enjoyed raising our daughter at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Greg is a musician (Brazilian, Jazz, Classical) and Donna is a painter (former dancer), and both enjoy gardening. We live next door to Asio which we purchased after having been the property managers for the former owner for the last seven years. With the mountains, rivers, canyons, the university, the thriving music and arts scene, and sports to participate in around every corner, Boulder provides everything we look for in life.

Donna & Greg LaLiberte purchased this bungalow in 2013

We each moved to Boulder because of Naropa University but for separate reasons. After living in various parts of town in rentals, we purchased the house next door to Asio in 2001 because of its location, the history of a close-knit neighborhood community, and the great potential for living well in town. When Asio came up for sale, we jumped at the chance to save the house from the wrecking ball (developers wanting to come in and build a large, modern house on the property). We spent the spring and summer lovingly and carefully renovating Asio inside and out, trying to strike a balance between preserving and enhancing historic qualities, honoring features from a former artist/carpenter/owner, and including necessary modern conveniences. We think you'll agree we found a good balance.

Bungalow Asio is situated perfectly in Boulder, a short walk to shops, restaurants, and cafes, a quick run to open space trails, three blocks from public transportation, and a fifteen minute walk to the Pearl Street Mall and downtown. Asio is surrounded by an adobe wall and privacy fencing, its property filled with mature trees, flagstone paths and patios, garden areas, three outdoor seating/eating areas, and a bike shed protecting a variety of bikes for your use. The kitchen makes any chef happy, the antique spiral staircase to the TV/getaway loft charms all ages, the gas fireplace warms up the coldest winter evenings, the swamp cooler (like an A/C) cools the hottest summer days, and the amazing quiet the house provides calms all souls.

My husband and I, our two sons, two daughters-in-law and four grandchildren ages 6 years - 11 months just spent a week in Boulder at Bungalow Asio visiting our daughter who recently moved there. This was our first experience with VRBO and I can't imagine ever staying in a hotel again. It was a delightful place to be, charming and beautifully appointed. The kitchen is state of the art and we were greeted with vases of fresh flowers everywhere.We were all able to be together and yet had our space if necessary. Donna and Greg, the owners, who reside next door are so welcoming and gave us ideas of where to go in the area. They also had a play area set aside for the children, and their yard is so beautiful, full of blooming flowers. It is also fenced so the kids could play outside and be protected. When we return, I can't image wanting to stay anywhere else.

BEST VACATION RENTAL IN BOULDER!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two young daughters and I stayed in this magnificently remodeled bungalow in the fall of 2013. It was our home away from home during our time there. We discovered very quickly that all of our needs were met, and then some. The owners take great pride in making sure this rental has 'everything' you need to be comfortable. From the amazing landscaped gardens to the chef's kitchen to the cozy media loft to the romantic master suite to the charming living room, this home has it all. The owners are like family, really. We love them! The location is spectacular as well. You can walk to the North Boulder Recreation Center or to the famous downtown Pearl Street Mall or just down the street to the local's market and coffee shops. You don't even need a car to stay here. Whether you're walking, riding Bungalow Asio's bicycles or hopping on the local transit buses, you can quickly get to any destination in Boulder. We can't recommend this place enough, we hope to go back again and again.

THE PERFECT HOME

  • 5 of 5
We love this house! My 17 month old son and I have stayed at Bungalow Asio multiple times over the last 5 months- it easily became our favorite place to stay when we visit Boulder. It's beautiful and cozy, definitely a place to feel at home when away from your own. I am a chef, and most homes do not boast the amenities that Asio offers- this kitchen is a dream! The layout of the house also made it very easy to keep an eye on my roaming son, while not feeling like we are cramped. Each room has a charm all it's own, such a wonderful eclectic environment. Such care was taken with the details of this property, inside and out. We got to witness the landscaping come to life in the spring- simply stunning! Greg, Donna and Maya are gracious and giving owners, willing to help whenever needed. We will always come back to Asio!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

A DREAM HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from a stay in a charming cottage. I had stayed in VRBOs before and found them well located and satisfactory. This one was great - more than expected. We were in Boulder for 5 busy days. The Asio cottage was warm and charming. Very attractive and flooded with sunshine. Well equipped with all that we could have expected and even more. Comfortable places for several to sit together made for easy conversations. Breakfast out in the garden was delightful. The kitchen was so well equipped that one of our party started baking - all necessities were there. We accommodated by eating warm muffins from the oven. The garden is lovely full of blooming spring flowers. The stucco wall around the house provides backdrop, privacy, atmosphere and a place for vines to grow. Just a few blocks walk and we were in town for a newspaper, to buy some food and fine nice places to eat. Most importantly, the atmosphere was warm and congenial, the beds were comfortable, all necessities were provided and we all felt very much at home. I would be delighted to stay there again.

EXQUISITELY SWEET

  • 5 of 5
This sweet spot is a destination in and of itself. The attention to detail, cleanliness, completeness and charm makes it hard to leave and easy to drop in to a place of peace and rest. It's also a great launching pad for anything you want to do in Boulder, plus the neighborhood offers ample shaded walking opportunities and an easy walk to the market. Everything we wanted was right at our fingertips, and the hosts were gracious, easy to work with and happy to do whatever was needed to make our stay exceptional. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Boulder now that I've expereinced Bungalow Osio. We'll be back!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to find this charming bungalow a glow down to the last detail. The colors, the decor', the bedding, the lighting, the views all combine to create a sweet, peaceful, totally comfortable sanctuary. Everything was in perfect order and everything we needed (or might ever need!) was in place. The magical private gardens, the lovely rich interior were given thoughtful attention. The hosts, Donna, Greg and Maya are a warm, loving and delightful family who clearly have created this special spot for folks to have a most enjoyable time. Long time residents of the area, they can direct you to the best the Boulder area has to offer! Bungalow Asio is in a beautiful friendly neighborhood and easy walking distance to downtown. This special retreat offers the best of a home away from home combined with the convenience of access to the dynamic downtown filled with amazing shops and enriching activities. I've travelled a lot and have worked in hospitality industry both and I can say that Bungalow Asio an exceptional place to stay! Highly recommended! We'll be back!
