About the property

Pet and Family Friendly, Ranch Style House, 3 Bedrooms 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 5

Imagine a nice, elegant and affordable home within walking distance from everything Boulder has to offer that let you bring your dogs, cats and children… Look no further! Our recently remodeled 3-bedroom Home is the perfect place to stay when you're looking for a romantic getaway, an extended stay with the kids and your pets, or a weekend soiree with some old friends.

While the house is located close to downtown Boulder and public transportation, it has a nice sense of seclusion and privacy as the large yard is surrounded by trees.

We recently renovated the entire house! Everything from the pots and pans in the modern kitchen, enormous wood deck with a gas/electric grill, luxury bathrooms, to the plush sheets on each bed will ensure a nice, cozy and relaxing stay.

The enclosed sunroom with wicker furniture is a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail or store your bicycle, and the partially enclosed deck also offer even more privacy.

The property is owned by Mike and Becky, who live right next door and are able to provide great customer service. Mike and Becky own a professional carpet cleaning company, and use anti-allergen cleaning products to help accommodate guests with allergies.

Thank you so much Mike & Becky for opening up your home to us for my 30th birthday! It was better than I ever could of hoped for. The house was perfect!

Felt like home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Boulder at this very comfortable a private home. It’s tucked away in a private setting right on the trail system yet close to everything. The home is decorated very tastefully and comfortable. We were in town for our daughter’s wedding and had an open house one afternoon for friends and family and the open floor plan made for a relaxing and leisurely gathering. It was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The owners were more than accommodating and lived next door making it easy to contact them if there were any issues that came up. We will rent again for sure!

Wonderful location in the heart of Boulder

  • 5 of 5

Becky & Mike,

Thanks again for a wonderful rental experience. After 4 years of renting this house in August, it feels like a second home to us. It always clean and uncluttered. Love the brand new washer and dryer. Boulder has so much to offer and this place is really convenient to it all! Even though we don't have a dog right now, we have in the past and they both felt right at home here. Super dog friendly!

Thanks again and we treasure your friendship.

Wonderful family stay in August

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay at Becky's house in August. The home was very clean and had everything we could possibly need during the stay - pots, pans, utensils, towels, you name it. The layout of the home was perfect for socializing and the kitchen had so much room for us to prepare our meals. If we had any questions prior to our stay or while we were there Becky was very prompt to respond to messages. We have previously stayed at Becky's other rental house next door and I wouldn't hesitate to rent either home again on our next trip to Boulder. The home is close by to shopping at the 29th Street Mall, Safeway, Whole Foods and Target. Be sure to visit Avery Brewing for lunch of beer tastings which is only a 10 - 15 minute drive away.

This was our second monthly stay at Becky & Mike's property and as usual it was spotless. When they renovated the property Becky & Mike used only upscale amenities, in fact, we have copied some of them for our house. There is a TV in all three bedrooms + a big one in the family room (yes that is 4 TV's) plus they have the premium channels for all you sports and movie fans. The kitchen has everything you would need and the property is a short walk to Boulder's extensive multi-use trails. Also it is located in a quiet neighborhood.

Having Becky & Mike close by is great because they can provide info about the area if needed, however, if you want privacy you hardly see or hear them unless you want too.

We have already booked our month for next year and if it works for you book it quickly, it will fill quickly.

We've never written a negative review, but feel we need to inform future guests. Some positives: comfortable beds, nice sheets & towels, large renovated kitchen, updated bathrooms, large yard. Our biggest complaint, and disappointment was that this was not a single family home, but a duplex with the owners living on the other side of the shared wall. Their overview said, owners " right next door." We understood that to mean the house next door, on a separate lot. Had we known this ahead of time we never would have rented it, especially with what we paid for a week. We only stay in single family homes because we don't like shared walls. We value our privacy and our peace and quiet. The first night we heard talking through the rear bedroom wall. We mentioned this to the owner the next day and her quick response: your clock radio must have come on and that's what you heard. Really?! We could hear their TV other nights. In our front bedroom sounds from their bathroom could be heard. Then there was the barking of their little dog when they were out one evening. We tried drowning out the sound by running a floor fan on high and shutting the bedroom door, but could still hear the nonstop barking while trying to watch TV out in the living room. Finally, we sent the wife a text about it, got a response that the dog was not barking when the husband got home! The pictures on their site of the great room look stunning, but don't sit on the sofa, it is long overdue for a cleaning. We had to put towels on it in order to feel comfortable sitting on it. The washer is old and had a sour odor; the dryer is old and takes three tries to dry a load. The dishwasher leaks all over the floor. It was mentioned in the house info sheet not to overload the dishwasher because it would leak. We made sure not to overload it. So this was an existing problem that they have chosen not to fix. The creek can not be accessed from the backyard unless you want to jump off a 2 1/2 foot wall and climb back up. We asked about getting to the park and the creek behind the house, and were told it was just a block walk down the street. It's a very long block, then a right turn for another block, then the distance of about 4 or 5 more blocks to get to the creek and the park. There is a large 4 story tall apt complex on the creek towering over the house and yard. Also, it's almost 2 miles to the downtown Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall. How unfair to mislead people! Would not recommend!

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay, As for the dishwasher we had no idea there was an issue. I wish you would of called me. I have a note on the dishwasher not to overload it, because it will leak. If there was an issue with the furniture I did not hear about until I read this review. We clean the carpets and furniture 4 times a year due to us allowing pets,And we also scotch guard the furniture. The guest that checked in right after told me that everything was great. We are very thorough about keeping our house clean. Our main goal is to make sure our guests have a great stay. As for Piper barking that one evening I am sorry, As soon as I got your text I called Mike and she barked because she heard him pull up. Our walls are sound proofed, That is one thing we made sure of during our remodel.Once again, Mike and I apologize. Becky

Nicely appointed and well located home in Boulder - great option for a family stay

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen is great / everything you need. Nice open area between kitchen / dining / family room really allows a comfortable and engaging environment for 6+ people to relax, eat, and talk.

The house is located in a quiet part of town (no college kid rentals next door) but is also in walking distance to the campus. Also, a backroad in this neighborhood takes you to shopping / restaurants in a few minutes

There is also a small creek with a paved path behind the house for walking.

We did have some questions when we first arrived and the owner was very responsive. I would definitely stay here again.
