About the property

Real comfortable place, your home away from home

Relaxing, marijuana friendly, home that's all yours! Killer breakfast served every morning included in your price. Plus a micro-brew sampler will be waiting for you upon arrival. There are seven micro-brews within six blocks of Johnny Lo's medx. I know a lot of the micro-brewers in town. We have two bedrooms that are so comfortable. Each bedroom has a queen and full size bed in them. All beds, linens, comforters, and towels are brand new. There is a large, shared walk in shower. We have two places to unwind. An amazing surround sound theatre / bar area where you can relax with your 'buds' and an outdoor style 'palapa' style porch with a cool bar, stereo, refrigerator to keep the coldness, cold. We even have sun shades to keep the Colorado sun off your back and to keep things discreet if you so desire. There are two regulation size horseshoe pits to have a little fun with. You'll fall asleep at least once on our hammock while listening to the sounds of our aquatic garden. If you take the train from the plane into Union Station, downtown Denver, we'll be glad to pick you up in one of our muscle cars from the late 60"s. We are sandwiched between Broadway and Santa Fe Avenues. This is the area you want to be at when visiting Denver, trust me.This is the HOT AREA! Not downtown, Larimer area. That was. Its no longer. It's too expensive down there and everything is played out. Here at Johnny Lo's Medx there so many fun things happening and cool places to visit within one mile, that you won't have to venture more than that to quench anything you're looking for. The "medx" parts of johnny lo's stands for your "marijuana education destination excape!" For our guests that want to learn a little more about the 'marijuana scene' going on we offer a free 45 minute private consultauion with the best dispensary in town. They will educate you on the best strains that are available to edibles, water hash, tinctures, hard goods and even creams. They will answer any and all your questions. I'm pretty sure you'll walk out with a smile on your face. We're just real comfortable here. I will be here during your stay. I'll be out of the way, except when I am cooking, so if you need anything, just give a shout of call. Check out Yelp for reviews of our place. Thanks!!

About John Lodico

I'm a commercial landscaper. I love to cook. I like micro-brews. I'm originally from New York but I call Colorado home now. You can't beat the weather and the people out here. I know a lot of the folks around town that will help make your stay the most comfortable vacation you ever have. Any questions, please ask! I hate going to a new place and missing out on something right next door because I did not know about it.

John Lodico purchased this house in 2002

Relaxing time at Johnny Lo's

  • 5 of 5

After reading the reviews here, we went in knowing this was definitely a different type of experience (in a good way). Johnny Lo made sure we had everything we needed, cooked some awesome breakfasts, and we enjoyed his company quite a bit! We even got to ride in the Chevelle a couple of times.

It's like staying at a good friends house! We got in really late and Johnny had some snacks for us, and welcomed us to his home. Sitting outside during the mornings and evenings was probably our favorite part, because the yard is so nicely attended to and because we could listen to music while we sat on the porch.

I wouldn't hesitate to go back! We knew it was a bit of a different experience than your typical VRBO, and we wouldn't have had it any differently!

Owner's Response: I never know what to expect and that's what makes this so awesome. Meeting people like these two folks makes all the little prep work, worth it. My guests recently sold their house and wanted to come back to Denver and enjoy it as "tourist and guests" I did that in Manhattan after living there and it was the best thing I ever did. Sarsh and Luc reminded me to "become a tourist in your own town" again. Then when you leave, you realize you had a great experience there and you pass that on to the next place. Can't wait to see these guys again! They'll be back!!!!!

A most wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend from Florida and I, (PA ) decided to visit Denver. John's home sounded so relaxing (?) and we went for it. GREAT time. John is the BEST host. He can find out any entertainment, road trips and restaurants. Breakfast in the morning? Whatever you want, it is delicious and you'll feel like a rock star. My friend and I would sit with John in the evenings and laugh until we cried. He has funny stories and experience and is an all around good guy. My friend and I are returning in 2017. This is not an adventure that one should not miss, I promise! Oh, I don't want to forget to let people know what a great massage we had at a place John can direct you to them.

Don't be afraid to step out of the box!

See you soon John

This was a perfect location for our fantasy football draft weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely perfect time with John at his home! As someone who is not familiar with Denver, I would say this area is part of an up-and-coming art district. We were able to walk to a lot of bars, restaurants & art galleries (probably about 4 or 5 blocks) and took a quick Uber ride to Union Station (~$8). First Friday and Taste of Colorado were both happening and we could walk to a lot of awesome events. John did a great job of being a host (he picked up one of the guys at the train station, drove us around the neighborhood to give us our bearings) while still giving us our space. He lives in this home (which is an awesome house by the way) and makes a great breakfast each morning. This is more of a "bed & breakfast" with the owner living on-site and spending time with the visitors than a traditional "rent my house and don't tear it up" I am used to with VRBO. I would absolutely recommend this home to people wanting to stay in the heart of Denver. Having a local guide be able to recommend breweries, restaurants and other fun things to do is invaluable. Thanks again for making our time in Denver special--we will definitely be coming back in the future!

Owner's Response: I love it when people come to my place and I can feel the love between them. These guys have known each other since they were kids and young adults and here they are all professional people, taking time from their world and spending time at my place to vacation. For me to put a smile on thier face and point them in the right direction, makes my heart feel great. I'm glad you guys had a blast! I learned a little bit about fantasy football league, and I have a feeling we'll be seeing you guys back in the future. Enjoy the rest of the summer and thanks for coming to johnny lo's medx!

Fabulous Host!

  • 4 of 5

Johnny is such an incredibly nice and attentive host that it is hard to say anything but positive things, nevertheless I will try to write an honest and comprehensive review. I’ll start with the good.

The Good – Johnny goes WAY out of his way to ensure his guests are comfortable and have a nice time. He is very knowledgeable of the Denver area and his neighborhood in particular. He is happy to make recommendations for whatever you are interested in doing and will even take you around and show you where things are. There are seven microbreweries nearby and Johnny will give you the scoop on each. He is also familiar with the nearby dispensaries and, if you are interested, he will go with you and introduce you to the folks that run them. Also the Stranahan Whiskey Distillery is nearby; touring their facility and sampling their whiskeys is a must do.

Johnny’s breakfasts are amazing. Everything he cooked for us was outstanding.

Speaking of hospitality, we attended a concert at Red Rocks and Johnny gave us a disposable cooler, a blanket and disposable rain ponchos - again amazingly thoughtful and caring.

I will discuss Johnny’s house a little more below but I want to make it clear that the house is very clean and pleasant.

The Not so Good – Johnny’s house sits on the edge of an industrial area and the neighborhood seems to be somewhat in transition. We felt safe there but it is not nearly as vibrant or quaint and as the downtown area or some of the other neighborhoods we drove through. We like to walk to dinner or to grab a drink in the evenings and there are number of places relatively close by but most involve about a half mile walk – not bad, but not outside your door step like the downtown area. On the plus side, pretty much everywhere you will want to go is a cheap Uber ride away (I think our highest fare was $12).

The Neutral but Things You Should Know - As I said earlier, Johnny’s house is clean, pleasant and well-appointed but it is not luxurious. This is NOT intended as a negative; it is intended only so that you have accurate expectations.

Unlike other rentals, this is a true B&B, meaning Johnny lives in the house. Again, this is NOT a negative. Johnny is a top flight host and he gives you lots of space and privacy but I wanted to make sure you have appropriate expectations.

Conclusion – If you are looking for a pleasant stay in Denver with the benefit of an excellent host and breakfast chef then this is your place.

Owner's Response: You guys rocked! You made the most of your time while in Colorado. Getting up to Estes Park, Red Rocks twice, Stranahan's. That's how we like our visitors to do it out here. Get out and see the beauty of this amazing state. Glad we could be of help. Hope to see you down the road again sometime. Peace and safe travels.

John is a Great guy and is very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and house was very clean and John was super nice. He was preparing for another group with some new build out for a larger desk space and additional air conditioning that would have made it even better while we were there. Was great for a boys weekend in Denver and he was really good with directions to Red Rocks and other places. He made us a great breakfast and even accommodated our need for mobile breakfast on our last day since we had to head to an early morning meeting.

Cool and eclectic

  • 5 of 5

I've never been 1 to write reviews but I feel like I definitely have to share my experience with the general public. 1st and foremost Johnny Lo is the host with the most! Upon arrival, we were kinda thrown off by the fact that Johnny Lo was hanging around even after he gave us the tour. We thought he was going to give us a tour of the house and leave us be; but that was not the case. Don't get me wrong, he gives you your space but he also pops in and out to hang out with you. With that being said, once you realize that Johnny Lo is your weekend concierge, you will be very happy and pleased that he is at your service! I repeat: Johnny Lo the host with the most and it's the best concierge service I have ever experienced. Upon arrival he greeted us with all of the party favors that we could ask for. He did not stop there. Every time we would leave and come back, there would be more party favors waiting for us; meaning party favors outside on the bar as well as party favors in the basement. A gourmet breakfast was awaiting us every morning along with more party favors! We did not take advantage of Johnny offering to take us anywhere and to do anything that we like whether it was biking in the mountains or white water rafting. Johnny offered to set us up to do any of these things if we wished. Johnny was very cool and laid-back and within 24 hours I looked at him as one of guys on the trip. Johnny Lo is cool with a great sense of humor and a willingness to ensure that all guests have everything that they need to have a great time in Denver. He has connections all over the city to make sure his guests are well cared for in and out of his presence. In my opinion, this type of set up is not for the romantic Denver trip, but I assure you...if you and a few friends want to go to Denver to get the "true Denver experience" look no further and check out Johnny Lo!!!!! #johnnylofasho
