About GISELA EALY

Many years in Colorado, local respectable owners.

GISELA EALY purchased this house in 1994

Why GISELA EALY chose Front Range Colorado

Golden's small-town atmosphere is a delight. Our residential neighborhood has the advantage of being within walking distance to downtown and historic district, yet far enough to enjoy the peaceful mountain open space and wildlife.

Home is warm and inviting, spacious, and in a great location with beautiful views!

Close to many amenities and convenient to Denver and Mountains. What else could we want?

Humming Bird House made us feel at HOME in Golden

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time stay at the “Humming Bird House”. Although the house itself is very compartmentalized (lost of individual rooms) this design really worked well with multiple families staying in the same house. We were in town for our daughter’s wedding and the spacious layout and five bedrooms gave us enough space for our kids, daughter in-law, grandson, mom and a few other guests to comfortably stay with us. The house was the perfect setting for the bridal party and flower girls to get ready for the wedding ceremony and was also great for a couple of small gatherings of family and friends that also came out to Golden for the wedding.

The house and all bedding were perfectly clean when we arrived and we were able to find all of the kitchen utensils and other sundries that we need for our stay. Overall the house is well appointed and the furniture is very good quality and comfortable. I really feel in love with the sitting room, but we would usually also take advantage of the back patio and the great view of mountains.

The only issue we had with the place was the band width and strength of the wireless connection. This house is huge and has lots of walls and the wireless router was located upstairs in one of the bedrooms. The signal on the first floor was weak and when more than a couple of devices were connected it would completely bog down. I mentioned this to Gisela and she indicated that she would be looking into improving the connectivity. (By the way the owner are great people and very responsive to their renters needs).

We had a great wedding and this house made us feel like home in Golden.

Beautiful home and Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house for a relaxing girls weekend. The house was well maintained and spacious. It was in the perfect location, walking distance to downtown Golden. The downtown area is very cute with eateries and shops. It was a pleasure to work with Gisela to book this rental. We would definitely love to rent this home again.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many different properties over the years but Hummingbird House was the best. The best furnished, the best location, the best amenities, the best hummingbird watching, and the best people to deal with. This home is spacious, plenty of room for everyone when we had visitors. The patio is huge and it's very pleasant having a meal out there. The kitchen was well appointed with just about every pot/pan and appliance available. And, yes, Gisela provides all kinds of little niceties for her guests.

We spent the summer in Golden to cool off, enjoy the nearby open space and Golden’s parks, and the quiet neighborhood. We loved our stay and we highly recommend this property!

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hummingbird house for 17 days over Christmas and New Years. The house was even better than it appears in the pictures. Fully equipped with everything we needed. Beautiful location. Everything took place exactly as Gisela said it would. I can't think of anything that could have been better. It was perfect!

Perfect home for vacationing friends!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I planned a trip to the Denver area last fall. I searched hotels and suites, but nothing would accommodate all 5 of us comfortably. My mother told me about this site and I began my search. We did not want to be in the middle of the city, but in a nice quaint area. I contacted the owner who was immediately willing to help! She was super nice and provided me with invaluable information not only on her home, but also the Golden area. I discussed this location with the other party and we booked. It was everything we hoped for! The pictures do not do this home justice. The home was charming-just as described on this site. Everyone had their own room and privacy. We could not believe how well stocked the house was (all the way down to razors and bubble bath). It was so much better than a hotel! The window air conditioning units were a hit with us (we are from Alabama) even though the weather was still nice in Golden.

The neighborhood was very quiet, but right in the middle of everything! The owner was fantastic! She walked me through the home and told me to call her if we needed anything at all! How's that for customer service?!

I know exactly where I will stay the next time I come to Denver!

Thank you again so much! We had a fabulous time!
