About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths Mtn View Townhouse.

This is The Dragonfly, our Westminster townhouse. Enjoy all that Denver and the Front Range of the Rockies have to offer from this great home base in a quiet, family-oriented, residential neighborhood. This is NOT a party house, but rather a peaceful home-away-from-home -- perfect for a family vacation, a girlfriend getaway, business colleagues, or a gathering of friends.

This beautifully furnished home features three bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, comfortable couches and cozy gas fireplace in the living room, and an updated kitchen that has everything you need to create a delicious meal.

Dragonfly has beds for eight. Bedroom/bath #1 is an upstairs master suite. There is a beautiful mountain view from the window, a king sized bed, separate shower and soaking tub in the bathroom, and walk-in closet. Bedroom/bath #2 is a main floor master suite. Two twin beds can also be made up into a king-sized bed. Bathroom has separate shower and soaking tub, and walk-in closet. Bedroom #3 is furnished with twin beds and is right down the hall from bathroom #3, which has a tub/shower combination. There is also a queen-sized Murphy wall bed in the partially finished basement.

In the interests of safety and comfort, we will not accept any parties larger than 8, including children.

Start your day with coffee and a mountain view. Spend the day exploring Denver -- Downtown is just 20 minutes away, the Denver Zoo and Science Museum about 25 minutes. Take in a play or concert at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Explore the Sixteenth Street Mall, the Capitol, the Mint, or the world of cuisines from the lunch trucks in the Civic Center. Or, head for the hills -- we've got a picnic cooler and camp chairs. Picnic, hike, climb, ski, bicycle....all within a short drive. At the end of the day, sit on the patio and enjoy the majesty of a Colorado mountain sunset.

Dragonfly is 10 minutes from Westminster Promenade, which has selection of restaurants, a huge movie multiplex, bowling & family entertainment complex, and ice arena. Across from the Promenade is the Butterfly Pavilion, a wonderful place to explore nature. Flatiron Crossing is one of the most popular shopping and dining complexes in the Denver area, and is just 15 minutes down the highway.

And, of course, you could always stay in and enjoy the townhouse!

There are digital cable television, blu-ray players that allow you to access Netflix or Hulu+ accounts, and wifi. The unfinished basement has a ping-pong table. The subdivision has a playground, outdoor pool, and walking trails around three tiny 'lakes'. Access to walking & bike trails and open space area is just a short walk away.

In addition to the beautiful setting and furnishings, The Dragonfly is a gallery for the work of award-winning Colorado artist, Cheryl Berglund. Enjoy the gorgeous artwork in all of the rooms -- or purchase a painting to take home as a reminder of your wonderful stay at The Dragonfly.

We hope you will make our Dragonfly your home away from home as you explore the beautiful Colorado Front Range.

About David & Tracey Kempsell

We purchased this beautiful home in 2013 and are excited to share it with you. Colorado natives, transplanted to Michigan, we visit our Colorado family as often as possible.

Why David & Tracey Kempsell chose Westminster

We chose this property for the location. Great proximity to downtown Denver as well as walking and biking trails, restaurants, movies, live theater and, of course, the mountains.

What makes this townhome unique

“The main symbols of the dragonfly are renewal, positive force and the power of life in general. Dragonflies can also be a symbol of the sense of self that comes with maturity. Also, as a creature of the wind, the dragonfly frequently represents change. And as a dragonfly lives a short life, it knows it must live its life to the fullest with the short time it has – which is a lesson for all of us. ”

We invite you to find renewal in our lovely home-away-from-home.

Guestbook comments from the owner make your home comfortable, enjoyable, entertaining, and warm! You have done a fantastic job with decorating and adding those amenities (guest information book, instructions for use of equipment, ping pong table in the basement, DVD's and movies, wine glasses, etc.) that really makes a stay very pleasant. All the best!

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Dragonfly. Everything we needed! Especially with a newly walking 11 month old, and for our almost 3 year. Highchair, baby gate, baby utensils, railing for bed, pack n play! The pictures don't do the space justice, it was so much nicer than what's pictured. Tracey was super easy to work with and put me at ease since this was my first experience using a site like "homeaway". I would highly recommend!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for anything better... This home has so many nice features and the owner's thought of everything you could possibly need. The home was beautiful, clean, convenient and felt like our own home. The kitchen had so many supplies to make cooking a breeze. The list of household items and their location was a bonus. Thanks for a great stay!

Wonderful rental property!

  • 5 of 5

The Dragonfly was the perfect rental for my family of five, including my five year old grandson, during our recent stay in Denver. We were there for our youngest son's wedding and the location was convenient to all of our needs. It was also well maintained, well stocked with all the amenities of home and very comfortable. I highly recommend the Dragonfly and will book the property if visiting with my family again.

Very comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening your home for Boulder area visitors. This was a very comfortable home for our family to stay in while visiting our daughter at CU. The home was very well stocked and clean with easy access to grocery stores and nearby restaurants.
