About Greg Gauthier

We find Boulder the perfect place to raise our two daughters. People are friendly and the lifestyle is healthy. We never tire of walking to Pearl Street to enjoy the amazing eateries, cafes, shops, and terrific happy hours. The walk along Boulder Creek (4 blocks away) is amazing.

When we are not here you might find us staying at a VRBO in Napa or elsewhere. Some of our past times include camping, biking, running, swimming, skiing, hiking, and fly fishing - all of which are easily accessible.

We welcome you to Boulder !

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so pleased with your guest apartment. We had expected to rent a car, but Memorial Day weekend demand changed our plans. This location turned out to be ideal. We could walk 5 blocks on Arapahoe St to Safeway (groceries) and other supplies, or a few blocks north to Pearl St. for food and entertainment. When traffic got congested due to the street fair, we walked easily to all our events. Thank you for providing a very comfortable home away from home.

Perfect by Pearl Street

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 20 year old daughter stayed three nights in this cozy apartment. Everything was so clean and modern. My daughter slept on the futon style couch and was fine with it. The bed in the bedroom was so comfortable we would like to get that mattress for home. We were looking to be close to Pearl and all the restaurants and shops. We found ourselves walking twice a day. And walking to a great grocery store called Sprouts and the CU campus. We hiked the flatirons and went on a brewery tour at Boulder beer. Very relaxing getaway. P.S. the shower is funny but it works.

great little gem in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

my husband, 3 year old daughter and i spent 4 nights at this great little apartment during our stay in Boulder. we could not have been happier with it. everything was spotlessly clean and the whole apartment is very modern. you can tell they have put a lot of effort into making it a nice place. the kitchen is great and we had every kitchen tool we could have possibly needed while we were there.

i read in one of the past reviews that someone felt the apartment never cooled down and it was too hot. we never had an issue. it was unseasonably warm during our stay and was typical 90+ each day and the apartment was always very cool. we read the directions left for us on how the owners recommend keeping the place cool and we were totally fine. (we do live in New England though so "dry" heat instead of humid heat was like a vacation for us).

the shower is a tad on the goofy side but it didnt bother us. i just sat down to shower. after a long day of hiking in the heat it was nice to sit down to shower. ;-)

the apartment is in a really amazing location in the CU area of Boulder. driving around a bit the neighborhood looked really cute. if it hadnt been so hot while we were there we might have walked around a bit more. we did walk to Pearl St on a couple of occasions. it's not a far walk and very easy to do.

there are several grocery stores in the area and lots to do. we went hiking at the Flat Irons and also at El Dorado Canyon during our stay.

if we ever find ourselves in Boulder again we would most definitely stay at this great little apartment again.

Clean and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, welcoming and in a great location near Hanuman Yoga Festival and Pearl Street. There was a place for parking our compact rental car off the street. It was the perfect little place to stay and my friends and Inwere happy with out choice.

Quaint and clean

  • 4 of 5

Property was very nice and the location excellent for Pearl street. Was very quiet for as close as all the other houses were. The only issue was the shower height made showering a bit of an adventure and the drain was very slow but we were able to correct that at the end. I liked how we were able to arrive and had a key code so there was no worrying about having to meet anyone. Enjoyed our stay immensely.
