Property type house


About the property

3 plus bedroom home w/ front range views & a 2 minute bike ride to Pearl st mall

We have a beautiful home for you to rent, just minutes from CU & Downtown. It's private and quiet, with incredible views of the front range & Boulder. It has a very open floor plan, with 2 bedrooms, a loft and even a beautiful bed from Bali on the deck!

There is a collection of art from around the world, including paintings from Brazil and Cuba, rugs and armoire from Morocco. The kitchen has an array of utensils, appliances and cooking tools, and the cupboards are generally stocked with most basic food. Fully furnished, with tasteful touches like granite counters, slate & travertine flooring; walnut trim; a huge deck & hot tub.

Best of all is the view. Huge picture windows and a huge deck open out to a view of the front range from Boulder to Lyons. Toward the back you can see the famous Flatirons of Boulder. The deck features a hot tub, grill, Apricot tree and unique hand carved king size bed from Bali. There's not a better view or location in Boulder. There are no cars or people walking by. The bedding is first class- the best mattresses, goose down comforters, and good cotton sheets. Sheets may be wrinkly because we line dry- but they are clean & environmentally correct! Heating is baseboard hot water, for clean, healthy, quiet heat. In summer we have evaporative cooling which is effective and healthy.

I usually live here, but am often out of town or out of the country. I have an eco-lodge in Africa (amongst other things) so am often gone. The house is fully licensed with the City of Boulder (RHL-0006481) and is zoned for no more than 3 unrelated people- so is perfect for a few couples, or any size family. I live separately downstairs when I'm in town; there are 4 bedrooms available downstairs that can be booked in addition to this listing ($100/bedroom with bathroom). There is a separate, private entry downstairs, and the upper floor is completely private.

Fort Collins, CO

A pleasant stay here in Boulder, Colorado.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you, Greg, for making our stay memorable, even though the deck where the hot tub is located had some serious water leak issues. We were still allowed to use the space and the hot tub, which turned out to be a highlight of our stay. And the bottle of bubbly left on the dinning room table when we arrived was a welcome surprise, especially since we were celebrating a birthday as well! Hope all goes well with repairs. We intend to come back and rent your place again some time in the near future.

Exactly what you are looking for.

  • 5 of 5

What can we say, the space and view are incredible. We were absolutely content sitting on the bed or in the hot tub looking out over Boulder under the stars or the sun.

We would recommend to any of our friends and family. You won't be disappointed!

Awesome views great location

  • 5 of 5

First off the couch in the pictures has been replaced with a modern living room set. The hot tub has also been replaced with a hard side one. I was worried that we would be to loud but those people must have been out of control that had the police called on them. This is a very quite area of town even though it's close to the college. The house is well equipped with everything you'll need. Make sure you get up for a sunrise at least once while your there. The owner is real nice and helpful.

Great view, good location

  • 4 of 5

This place has an amazing view of Boulder and the surrounding area. Found myself just staring out the huge window to see the sunrise over Boulder and the great view of red rocks. The location is good. It's an easy 15 minute walk into town, but you are up on a hill so it's a little harder walk back.

The space overall is big with an open floor plan, but the bedrooms and bathroom are small. With only one bath it's not ideal for a larger group. As others have said, you do have folks living below you in the house. However, it was not a problem for us. There is also some construction going on next door, but it did not bother us. Overall a very nice place.
