About Toby Tenenbaum
I'm a Boulder native. My father was a CU professor of romance languages, and I grew up with my 4 sisters on Mapleton Hill. I'm a musician and teacher, and you may hear the sounds of my Steinway grand piano next door. I cherish quiet and peacefulness above all, and spend most of my time watering the morning glories, cooking healthy food and playing with the little ruler of the roost, Jambo. (He's my very playful Chihuahua.) My passions are working for the environment, classical music, flowers, books and meditation. I have a large and joyous extended family living in the area, so you may see some very beautiful children coming in and out of my door. I have a great love for Boulder as well as my little piece of heaven that I've created here the past 25 years. I look forward making it available for discriminating guests.
Toby Tenenbaum purchased this House in 1990
Why Toby Tenenbaum chose Whittier
My parents helped my younger sister and I buy this property back in the day. I immediatly fell in love with the enormous 100 year old silver maple in the back yard, the charm of the brick structure, and the quiet neighborhood. I have grown to love the Whittier neighborhood, with it's eclectic population of artists, spiritual seekers, students, families and community-minded folks. This is an incredible location: quiet and secluded, but within blocks of outdoor festivals, parades, celebrations and the constant street festival that is the Pearl Street Mall. You are literally at the center of the action here, but you can come home to the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of 'the Oasis on 18th!'
What makes this House unique
Walk to the Farmer's Market, to dozens of great restaurants and coffee shops. Head over to the Boulder Creek bike trail, or up the hill to the campus. Or get away from it all with a book in the quiet of the backyard, or sit in the sun and look up into the leaves of the majestic silver maple. This is a house that invites rejuvenation and restoration---you're living in a bit of history here: there were street cars that travelled on 18th Street. Get out of the car and back on your feet---fix some delicious simple food and sit out at the picnic table, watch the birds and flowers and enjoy the good life.

Exactly what we needed
We really enjoyed staying here. Toby made sure everything was perfect. Fresh flowers everywhere and a fruit basket with chocolate greeted us. Toby checked in on us every day to make sure everything was good. He had good recommendations. We loved the quaint screened in porch in the back. Location could not be better (very quiet for being so close to Pearl Street). For some people, a lack of a dishwasher could be an issue (but not us). Highly recommend.
Our too-short trip
Our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at this clean and well-stocked historic property. The kids loved and lived on the back porch, and enjoyed their forays to town. With such a short stay, we ate out almost every meal and there was no shortage of restaurants within walking distance. Toby recommended some great restaurants and shops and was prompt and thorough in all of our communications regarding our stay. I hope we'll return some day!
Very comfortable and great location. Beautiful flowers in the house and very well equipped.
Fantastic stay! Thanks so much Toby!!
You will love Tony's apartment!
This is such a wonderful apartment in the heart of downtown Boulder. You can experience the city like a local and you will feel like you are home. Flowers in every room, a completely furnished kitchen if you wish to cook, plush towels in the bath and a comfortable living room to hang out and watch movies.
Tony is the ultimate host, friendly and knowledgeable (a Boulder native), always available for information and advice. I will be staying here again on my next visit to Boulder!
Great location in Boulder
My family spent several days here and had a great time. The house was super clean and well stocked. The location was great, it is just a short walk to Pearl Street and some good local beers. We got snowed in one day and had a comfortable day watching movies. Toby was a great host and had extra goodies for the kids when we arrived. Would stay here again.
Lovely, well kept and convenient. Plus, Toby is an outstanding host.
The apartment is perfect for one or two. It can sleep 4 but might feel a bit crowded. Kitchen had all amenities and was well stocked with coffees, teas, basic spices and some condiments. Toby even provided a welcoming bowl of fruit and chocolate bar. Check it out before going grocery shopping!!
Downtown Boulder is a hub for leisure and sight-seeing activities, restaurants, shops, and urban pleasures. I'm only blocks from the CU campus as well, and it's just a short walk to the beautiful grounds and buildings of the lively university community. It's easy to hop on one of many bike trails and explore the city and surrounding countryside
