About Shauna Conner

Shauna has lived in Colorado most of her life (since 1965), so considers herself an honorary native. She has worked in Emergency Services for the past 37 years, mainly in the field of Law Enforcement. Mario is from a little farming community called Dexter, which is just outside of Roswell, New Mexico. He is a an amazing chef, and currently works as a restaurant manager. The two together make fantastic hosts, and hope to meet you soon!

Shauna Conner purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Shauna Conner chose Parker

Location, location, location! Quiet, beautiful views, lots of trees and wildlife to enjoy! Your hosts will give you as much privacy as you want, or you can join us for occasional dinner and drinks on the patio. We'd be happy to help you learn more about Denver, Colorado, tourist attractions, the best restaurants, shopping, and tons of recreational opportunities!

What makes this apartment unique

The uniqueness of this property is that you feel like you are out in the country, far removed from the hustle, noise and chaos of the big city, and yet we are very close to major highways which can quickly transport you to your work, or playtime in the mountains. Here we live peacefully, no drama, lots of wildlife to include owls, eagles, hawks, hummingbirds, and squirrels, and the distant sounds of coyotes, windchimes, and a waterfall.

Beautiful quiet property, good parking and beautiful relaxing interior and atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful experience in renting away from home. Everything you could need was there and amenities provided above and beyond what was necessary, even a dish of candy of which I ate all the snickers! Very quiet, loved the sounds of birds including an owl greeting me the first night. Step outside and have a beautiful view of the mountains and very close to everything you need and easy access to all the Denver area has to offer. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and the owners were great! They checked to see that we didn't need anything and were very personable. I highly recommend staying here and definitely hope to stay here again in the future when visiting the Denver area and seeing family, hopefully in a different season to enjoy all that is there. Definitely a 5 star place!

Great home away from home

Really enjoyed my stay at Reid gardens. This was a perfect place for my short term needs. Property is clean, quite, and the hosts are amazing.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Eric! We loved having you and Brett staying with us, just wish we had had more time to visit! We hope to see you both again, either here at our property, or at yours, when you move to Denver. You've got our number! Shauna

Wonderful experience. We would stay here again. We had everything we needed for the month's stay.

  • 5 of 5

It is a beautiful property that Shauna and Mario share with their guests. They are very friendly and accommodating. The property is close to shopping and a trailhead for walking or hiking. The apartment is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was a great place for us to stay while visiting our children and grandchildren. We hope to return.

Quiet, Homey apartment with wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

I was in town for an internship and stayed for 10 weeks while working full time. Shauna and Mario were excellent, friendly hosts and provided a clean, quiet, and well furnished area for my use. Several times they invited me upstairs to their portion of the house to enjoy dinner prepared by Mario (and thanks to his work at a local restaurant, is excellent as well). Shauna and Mario even invited me to meet their grandkids and spend part of a day on a Saturday with them while I was there, but were never pushy and understood when I did decline due to other plans from time to time.

The space itself is small, but well represented in the pictures on the listing. It was just the right amount of space for a single traveler or a couple, but would be a stretch for much more than that. The living room is very comfy with recliners, a couch, an electric fireplace, and a TV; the kitchen is well furnished with updated appliances and basic seasonings and groceries; and the bedroom is fitted with a large bed and multiple sets of linens to meet your preferences.

I had a great time at Shauna and Mario's house while I was in the Denver area, the location is very well placed for access to Denver, Colorado Springs, Rocky Mountain National Park, or other surrounding areas. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to any small group interested, and while I don't expect to be back in Denver any time soon, I would jump at the opportunity to stay here again!

Where do you live?

Country living with quick access to all of the city amenities

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment was everything as pictured and more. Shauna's artistic decorating provides comfort and ambience.

She stocked the kitchen with all the extras to get us started until we could shop for ourselves. The recliners and HD TV made us feel right at home. The large kitchen with granite tops and quality appliances plus the easy access to a quality grocery store made us want to eat in even though there were plenty of good restaurants nearby.

The most special thing of our stay was spending time with our hosts. Shauna and Mario saw to our every need. We hope to return to visit them and this wonderful property any time we visit in the Denver area.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Mary Anne, for your kind review. Mario and I thoroughly enjoyed having you and Phillip stay with us this past month. We loved sitting out on the patio with you, hearing of your adventures, and sharing a couple meals together. We definitely want you both to come back next summer and stay a couple months next time! You feel like family!

Car: necessary

We are just across the road from the Cherry Creek Bike Path. This paved trail begins at Confluence Park in downtown Denver and runs along Cherry Creek for more than 40 miles to Franktown, and is wonderful path for walking, jogging or bike riding. We are about 3/4 mile from E470 which takes you up into the mountains within 30 minutes. There you can find historic mining towns, ski resorts, casinos, wonderful restaurants, breath-taking camping areas, creeks for wading, fishing, and river rafting. We are 45-50 minutes to Colorado Springs, the Air Force Academy, and the Garden of the Gods. And, of course, all that the beautiful city of Denver has to offer is just 25-30 minutes away.
