About The Owner

Julie and I have lived in the Colorado Springs area for over 40 years. Shortly after we were married, we moved to the Bay Area of California as a young professional couple. But, having both grown up in Colorado, we wanted our kids to know their grandparents, enjoy the mountains, and have the advantage of growing up in a wholesome community. So, although as a couple of twenty-somethings we loved the opportunities the California lifestyle had provided for ourselves, we decided to move back to Colorado for the sake of our kids and have been here ever since. We have never regretted that decision.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose South Central Colorado

The Antler Creek house was built as a model home by a well known local builder. We were impressed by the upgraded finishes and furnishings throughout the house, as well as the floor plan. We also loved that it was located on a great public golf course and in a recreational community within walking distance of the rec center. So we made the investment!

We had the house professionally decorated and supplied it as if we and our extended family were to vacation there ourselves. As a result, the positive feedback we have gotten from our guests has been most satisfying. Many of them have returned--thank you all!

What makes this house unique

We live in Colorado Springs ourselves, so we don't vacation in this house. So we had the house decorated with good quality furniture, furnishings, and conveniences as if we, ourselves, were staying there. For example, we wanted everyone to be able to eat at the same time as a family rather than in shifts, so there are place settings and seating at a table or counter throughout the house for everyone to eat simultaneously. And we invested in the same quality mattresses and towels/linens as we have in our own residence. We have the house professionally cleaned after each guest.

The house is great for family-oriented conversation and activities. Besides the open floor plan which enhances the feeling of togetherness, the home theater, pool table, wet bar, private putting green, library with over a hundred books (many of them inspirational), WiFi, and home audio the house it self offers, the convenient Golfing at one of the most challengining public courses West of the Mississippi, the private recreation center with basketball, workout areas, ping-pong, foosball, air hockey and indoor and outdoor swimming pools, all combine together to offer a great family vacation experience. The house itself has a picturesque setting, with a pond and the 15th green of the Antler Creek golf course in the foreground and majestic Pikes Peak as a backdrop. You can even see some snow-caps in the Sangre de Cristo range 80 miles away on a clear day!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Su sent this email to owner on July 8, 2015:



Hello Don,



I just wanted to thank you for sharing your lovely home with us this past week. It worked out perfectly for our family and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Everything went even better than we could have hoped for. We aren't able to gather often as a family so it was a very special time for us.



Thank you for being easy to work with. We will never forget our experiences with our family in Colorado.



Sincerely,

Su

Family of 15 Review

  • 5 of 5

Although it's a bit of a drive to get to Colorado Springs' attractions (30 minutes), we are used to driving to get to places. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, plates, etc. With 9 adults and 6 kids, the house was laid out in such a way that the kids could go and have fun on their own while adults talked -- and at the same time we could all get together when desired. The nearby rec center and pool was a BIG plus. We wanted to get there at the end of each day, but always ran out of time.

Great layout for large family. All bedrooms on separate floors from the main living/gathering space.

  • 4 of 5

The home owner was wonderful to work with. He was very responsive to questions prior to and during our stay. The home was adequately equipped with towels, bedding, and stocked kitchen. The 3-car garage was wonderful, especially since it rained each day of our vacation.

Perfect for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful and perfect! It would be nice to have TV's in all the bedrooms to use at night but that's not a big deal. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio and drinking coffee in the morning enjoying the views of Pikes Peak.

Excellent property!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in this home. It's in great condition and easily slept our 14 people. Plenty of room for everyone to relax and a nice kitchen for fixing meals. The pool available at the nearby club was a nice amenity.

Well stocked, Spacious, comfortable, clean and beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We love this house. I brought a group of students to Springs area for youth conference and was able to find this house last minute. It was perfect for our size group! The students loved it!! The house is spacious and accommodating. Beautiful views of Pikes Peak/Mountains. The house is well stocked with linens, toiletries and kitchen equipment/utensils. The furnishings are pleasing and the furniture comfortable. We would certainly rent this property again.

A very comfortable stay

It's a great house with plenty of space, everything you need.

It's just about 30-40 minutes from all the attractions.
