Whether you are visiting Denver for business or pleasure, this home provides everything you need as your 'home away from home.

A car is usually recommended for getting around Denver, but if you don't want the hassle, Uber is a great alternative. Download the Uber App and start using their car service! Quick/Easy/Affordable.

About Kym Whitney

Designer/Owner of The Gipsy Bag (high end fashionable handbag organizers for women), Love to travel the world learning about new cultures, architecture and meeting new people. Enjoy outdoor activities, working out, and trying new restaurants. Grew up in Denver, but the beach was calling my name, so relocated to sunny Southern California.

Kym Whitney purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Kym Whitney chose Denver

When traveling I prefer to stay in privately owned vacation rentals. I frequently travel to Denver to visit family, so decided it would be great to have a vacation rental of my own. I chose this property because of it's early 1900's features (original wood floors, exposed brick wall) yet renovated with all the modern conveniences. It is also located in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Denver, The Highlands. It is just blocks from beautiful Sloan's lake and next to downtown, all professional sporting events, and easy access to the major freeways for traveling to the mountains or other popular spots throughout the State.

What makes this bungalow unique

With the home's central location you can enjoy biking, walking, running, shopping, dining, going to sports events or concerts all within a few minutes away.

Also easy freeway access for driving to Boulder, Estes Park, and of course, the mountains. Famous Red Rocks is also just 20 minutes away for hiking or taking in a concert.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Hi Kym, Well we had a great trip and great accommodations. We made it home safely last night. Thank you so much for providing a family and pet friendly house. We would love to rent from you again in the future."

Security Deposit Refund

  • 2 of 5

The location was great and the property itself was fine with the exception of over flowing trash in the carport area which we took upon ourselves to clean up. We were willing to overlook that, however, it's been almost a month since our stay and we still haven't gotten our security deposit back. We've emailed repeatedly with no response. Keep in mind this review along with the couple others that have had the same security deposit refund issue when considering renting this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The security deposit was refunded. If you need a copy of the confirmation we are happy to send it over. Trash issue was a result of a broken down truck so it could not be dealt w/ before your arrival, which we did explain right away. Trash was picked up immediately after your departure.

Comfortable place!

  • 4 of 5

This place was very cute on the inside, had everything we needed, and Kym was easy to deal with. My kids loved the downstairs "man cave" area!

Great house for our trip!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Highlands property. It was very easy to get to all parts of Denver and the surrounding areas that we were exploring. The house is well-kept and had most of the stuff we needed. It's very close to a market and downtown. Kym was very helpful and her response time is amazing! I would definitely stay here again when returning to Denver.
