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.

Beautiful, spacious home -- perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Villa for our son's USAFA graduation knowing we would have many guests needing a place to stay. The house is situated in the city but it feels as though you are in a private, wooded area. We saw many deer throughout our stay. We used every bed but never felt as though we were cramped and falling over each other. The rooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were large. We LOVED the large dining table and sat around eating and visiting most of the evenings we were there. The kitchen had all of the tools we needed (except sharp knives) and we were able to cook and bake easily. We watched movies in the media room, sat in the hot tub, took walks in the neighborhood and sat out on the front porch or back porch while drinking our morning coffee or watching the sunset.

Also, we were so thankful to Audrey for being so easy to work with when the date was changed for the USAFA graduation by a week. We had booked the Villa a couple of years in advance and the date changed less than a year before the graduation. We heard many stories from other parents who lost the homes they had rented and those owners were unsympathetic. Audrey was WONDERFUL and very kind and understanding. Our week at the Villa was truly relaxing and we celebrated our new 2d Lieutenant with family and friends at our sides, in a lovely setting! We highly recommend the Mediterranean Villa for your next visit to Colorado Springs!

Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 siblings (and their children) just celebrated my mother's 90th birthday here at the Villa. There is plenty of room for everyone to get together in one area as well as find places to be alone. We really enjoyed the expansive outdoor areas. While you are at the villa you do not feel you are in the middle of the city but all the stuff you need is only 5-10 minutes away.

We would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is interested.

A very spacious, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that I have rented this home for my family retreat of 20 people, which includes children of all ages as well as adults. We feel this home is very family-friendly and comfortable. While other homes provided adequate sleeping space, we found that the large dining room table, which can seat all of us, is a real bonus. With numerous areas in the home, we had various activities going on: children playing, adults having conversations, playing games, playing pool or ping-pong, cooking, etc. The first year it snowed the entire weekend but we had a lot of fun with all our family just staying inside. The hot tub is a favorite spot as well. This year the weather was perfect and the kids were outside a lot. Basketball was enjoyed and walking the old railroad trail was great. We have not been disappointed!

Great experience for our Sibling Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 of us for a long weekend in March and this home was perfect for us! It was our annual sibling and spouse reunion and we all had a great time and loved this home. There is so much room for a group this size or even much larger. The beds were all comfortable and there were plenty of bedrooms for all of us. The spa was wonderful. It is indoors but surrounded by floor to ceiling windows so there is a great view while you are in the hot tub. The kitchen is very large and very well equipped. Plenty of everything you could need to fix meals. The setting is perfect. You are in the city but feel like you are at a mountain retreat. We even got to enjoy a beautiful spring snow storm while we were there. Audrey was there to meet us when we arrived and was very helpful with explaining everything and showing us around the place. We are planning another reunion here when the destination is Colorado again. We want to come back and hopefully enjoy more time on the many patios! On our last day there were about 5 deer that walked through the yard very close to us! Thanks Audrey for a great experience! We will be back!

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.
