About Audrey Beckett

My husband Ted and I grew up in California and moved to Colorado Springs in 1990. We own a Land Development company. We are of retirement age and want to travel to see our grandchildren and travel to other parts of the world to pursue our ministry interests in India and the Holy Land.

Audrey Beckett purchased this villa in 2005

Why Audrey Beckett chose Colorado Springs

The Colorado Springs area is beautiful all year around. The temperatures are mild, the sun shines most of the time, the air is clean. There are many outdoor activities and fun attractions. Colorado Springs was ranked the 6th Best Weekend Getaway by U.S. News & World Report

What makes this villa unique

Our home is beautifully situated on 2.4 acres among the pine trees but still in the middle of Colorado Springs and close to everything. Our home is truly one of a kind from the stone wall w/pond in the entry to the spa room with its wood ceiling and walls of windows.

Great house for family event

  • 5 of 5

Audrey was wonderdul to work with and the house is huge, well stocked and very welcoming for guests. Our family had a blast and we would come back and stay again. Thank you for making it so welcoming.

Our unfortunate Thanksgiving holiday.

  • 1 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Villa over the Thanksgiving holiday. While the home was very much spacious and beautiful, our stay was a disappointment. On the first day of our arrival only after not even being unpacked, we found bed bugs in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Immediately following, we contacted the owners. It wasn’t until the next morning that they were able to come out, in which they sprayed the room, shut the door, and put a towel under the door. The room was then off limits to us for the remainder of our stay. We heard nothing from the owners then after, until we contacted them again about the situation. Not only did we feel that they were unsympathetic to the situation, but they also suggested that one of our family members brought these bugs to their home as they quoted “this has never been an issue for the us in past”. For our guests to not even have been unpacked in that room that was absolutely ridiculous. We strongly believe that the guests that stayed prior left these bugs behind. Not only that, but two days later we found that other guests who stayed in different rooms had encountered bed bug bites as well. Making it a total of 6 guests that got bitten throughout our stay. The owner proceeded to let us know that a professional exterminator came out after our departure and sprayed the entire house and her and her family were then able to stay in the home days after. While that is of no relevance to our stay, the exterminator wouldn’t have done his job if she wasn’t able to stay in the home following the spray. Again, we felt she was trying to make the situation out to not be a big deal. This may have not been a big deal to her family, but after spending a great deal of money on this rental it most definitely was for ours. After much back and forth via email, the owners did offer us a small reimbursement as long as we signed an agreement stating that we would not post a negative review of our stay. My family collectively declined as we felt a review was necessary. Multiple pictures were sent just after our departure and have continued to come our way, which was also confirmed to appear to be bed bugs bites by their professional exterminator. According to the Centers for Disease Control, bed bug bites can take up to two weeks to appear and we pray that these bugs did not make their way into anyone's home. Being as this was our guests first time in the Springs we hoped for a better holiday and would not rent this home again.

Owner's Response: I gave our guests an early check-in the day before Thanksgiving and everything was beautiful. At 1AM the next morning they called to say they had spotted a bedbug but the couple in that room had moved to another room. I came over in the morning, took the beds apart, sprayed everything, closed the door and sealed it off. I talked to them the next morning and there were no other bedbugs in any of the rooms. After they checked out they called me to say other guests had been bitten and sent me pictures of bedbug bites and asked for a refund. I told them that I would reimburse them for their discomfort, which they declined. I had a women's group staying in the home a few days before this family arrived and there were no problems. We had an exterminator come the day this family checked out and took every bed apart and sprayed everything. We then moved back into the home and haven't had any problems. We are having 2 more follow up treatments before the next guests arrive.

Rustic Hills gem

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this property for a week for a family vacation (11 adults). Although my wife and I have visited Colorado Springs multiple times, it was our guests' first time. Not only was the home spacious, comfortable and well appointed, but it was ideally located for easy, quick access to many sites, activities and the airport. Also, the owner was very friendly and easily accessible. If needed, would certainly rent this spacious home again.

Beautiful home; wonderful hostess; excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 ladies staying here for a reunion, and this house was perfect. But it would be perfect for several families with children, too. The large kitchen made it easy for several of us to cook at the same time, and the hostess leaves spices, cooking oil, etc. in the pantry for the guests to use, which is a big help. The dining table is huge, and it was a lot of fun to be able to have 10 of us sit around the same table - we could have seated twice as many. There is a hot tub, pool table, media room, swing set outside, and many many TVs although we didn't use any during our stay. I have rented a number of houses in different locations, and this hostess was the most pleasant and helpful I have dealt with. She has a large family herself, so this is not just a rental property, but a beloved home. I highly recommend this home.

Beautiful setting for an awesome villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for four nights with 12 other college friends (we're all in our 60's) and we all loved the place. Plenty of room, lots of nice amenities including several porches...peaceful location with easy access to CO. Springs.

Second time we have stayed here and we will definitely be back!

Loved our stay at the Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to find the Mediterranean Villa for our annual company sales meeting. The accommodations were perfect for our out of town sales team and better yet we were able to conduct all of our meetings there as well. We think it was our best sales meeting ever and have to believe that the beautiful setting made a great meeting also seem like a mini vacation for our sales team. We especially loved having morning meetings and evening dinners outside on the beautiful veranda. Thank you Audrey..... we truly enjoyed everything your Villa had to offer.
