Modern Duplex in the heart of Denver's Santa Fe Arts District

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

This newly-renovated home (half-duplex) is in one of the coolest and most conveniently-located neighborhoods in Denver. A 2BR/1BA featuring a Queen bed in the main bedroom and a double (120cm wide) Murphy Bed/desk in the second. There's a trampoline and a lovely garden/BBQ area out back shared by the two units.

One block from the heart of Denver's Santa Fe Arts District. Only a mile from downtown. Lots of art galleries, restaurants, and breweries. Not far from the light-rail, and main bus-lines a half-block away.

The back yard has a nice garden, with plenty of edibles. The house is professionally cleaned before and after each stay and twice a month throughout the year, so it will always be clean and tidy, but there is a $50 cleaning fee with each stay, regardless of duration.

Why Tony Shawcross chose Lincoln Park

This cozy, 1500 SqFt Duplex is just a block from the heart of the Santa Fe Arts District. Nestled half-way between Downtown/Lodo/Convention Center and Baker/South Broadway. One of the coolest and most conveniently located neighborhoods in Denver, this house is right off 6th and I-25, yet far enough from traffic to be homey without traffic noise or parking problems. The Santa Fe Arts District isn't as polished and gentrified as many other neighborhoods in Denver, which is why its my favorite. No big chains and fast-food restaurants on Santa Fe or South Broadway, but plenty of breweries, restaurants, theatres, and more!

I travel a lot for work, so I had been renting my home while out of town with long-term renters in the other half. Demand got so high, when my tenant next door moved-out, I decided to renovate and start listing the other half full-time as well. My half rents for $175-$200/night, and this half is much nicer, but I'm starting the price lower to build-up the reviews.

The home is old and has character of a 130 year old house. Its in good shape with refinished Hardwood floors and kitchen tile, new fixtures, lighting, appliances etc. No one lives here full-time, so the closets and drawers are all yours.

Back yard has nice planters with plenty of edible plants throughout spring and summer, plus a fire pit and trampoline.

What makes this house unique

One caveat, the neighbors on both sides are musicians. I've never had any complaints from tenants, but its an arts district and if you're an especially light sleeper or sensitive to noise, this is not the home for you (especially on the first friday of the month).

Cozy urban gem

  • 5 of 5

Tony's place is tucked away on a quiet street of small bungalows near the Santa Fe (Avenue) Arts District. It's accessible to downtown, it's comfortable, there's plenty of street parking (except on the first Friday evening of each month, when the arts district throws itself a party), and Tony is a generous and accommodating host.

The urban backyard is a nice place to relax on a summer morning or evening, and the neighborhood, at least as of this writing, is one of the last in town to retain an authentic, old Denver feel. If you want an urban re doubt and you prefer proximity to the arts, you can't do better.

664 Sante Fe Rental

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Denver during GABF. The property was conveniently located to public transportation (RTD Bus) so renting a car was not a necessity as we were able to get around easily. The place was a little cozy but it definitely served us well. Well equipped kitchen. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Cozy Place in Art District of Denver

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at Tony's place. It was very comfortable and had great access to all of Denver and Colorado. The murphy bed was great for our 6 year old daughter and all the amenities were very nice. Only draw backs were that the outside was unkempt and the trampoline seemed to be infested with wasps. We just stayed away from those. We were in walking distance of a few places and there was always parking close to the house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. I haven't noticed the wasps, but will make sure to address it now that I know. I'll also get the landscaper to come do a fall clean-up. Tony

Denver Transition

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Inca St. house while searching for a more permanent place of residency when I relocated to the Denver area from Texas. Tony was one of the most hospitable and generous hosts I've come across throughout my entire time using these vacation home/apt rentals. It really helped make my transition during the month and half so much easier. I was able to focus on work, which was a nice 20 min stroll over to the downtown area, or about a $6-$10 uber ride. I loved the neighborhood because it wasn't a tourist trap type place, but I still had access to all that if I wanted.... great awesome LOCAL coffee shops, food, and art galleries all within the 1 mi. radius. If you're looking for a great place to stay to get a taste of what local Denver is, I'd recommend this place anyday!

Up and coming neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Nice place in a neighborhood that is very hip. Bedrooms are small, and one has a fold down Murphy bed. Backyard is a little unkempt but has a nice seating area, hammock and grill for guest use. Owner very responsive and accommodative. Easy access to highway but nice quiet street. we were always able to find street parking in front of the building.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I generally have landscapers come by the house just twice a year to weed and keep things looking nice... sounds like I need to increase that frequency... and maybe those chairs could use replacing too... I appreciate the feedback. Tony
