No disappointments here!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 8 stayed here for five nights when we traveled to Denver for a 3 day wedding. We had four children ranging in age from 4 mos to 8 years. It was a busy, busy week with 2 of the children and one adult serving as members of the wedding party. Thank heavens we had Velma's to come home to at the end of these long days. We had everything we could possibly want including a sewing kit to hem the child's suit pants to makeup removers that saved the day when I lost my own. (Kid walked off with it and I finally found it as I was packing!). The house is comfortable, inviting and kid friendly. And the neighborhood! Walkable, convenient to several restaurants/coffee shops and easy to park. You just can't go wrong with this rental. Thankyou Linda for sharing this wonderful home with our family!

The Perfect Home for Families with Young Kids

  • 5 of 5

Velma's Cottage is in a great location near downtown Denver. The quaint home is minutes from the zoo, parks, restaurants, shopping, and highways. Linda made sure we had everything we needed for our two young children to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We had a great time hiking, rafting, and spending time with old friends. Can't wait to come back.

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

Velma's Cottage was absolutely charming! The location was wonderful with delicious dining , a small neighborhood market, and coffee shop, all within easy walking distance. We all rested well because the bedding was comfortable. Mrs. Williams is a gem. Thank you Linda for allowing us to have our Family Thanksgiving in your home.

Perfect getaway in the city!

  • 5 of 5

Ideal house in an ideal location for a weekend in the city with a group of girlfriends! Linda was super helpful and accommodating when a prior reservation fell through on our arrival date - saved us from a near disaster! It must have been fate though because the house was absolutely perfect for our group and we had so much fun exploring the nearby neighborhood shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend Velma's Cottage in the City to anybody visiting Denver looking for a home away from home. Thank you, Linda!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent choice to keep all family members together for my daughters wedding. It met the needs for the 91 yr old grandma and the 2 and 4 year old. Very homey and anything we needed was already there. Great restraunts within a short walk. Good interactions with the owner. Would do it again Ina heartbeat!
