About Ysela Erwin
Born and raised in Texas, I eventually made my way to California where I met my husband. We later left the beaches of California for the mountains of Colorado. Hiking, traveling, cooking, reading, road trips, and walks are some of our favorite family activities. Being travelers ourselves, we love meeting people from all over the world.
Ysela Erwin purchased this House in 2008
Why Ysela Erwin chose Briargate
When Katherine Lee Bates saw Pikes Peak, she was so inspired that she penned the famous lyric “Purple Mountain Majesty”. Similarly, when we saw the view of Pikes Peak from the deck, we knew this house was the one. The view, location, quiet neighborhood and quick access to everything you need, influenced our decision in choosing this part of town. We have built wonderful memories with our family and friends, and expect that those who vacation here will have the same experience.
What makes this House unique
The safe neighborhood, nearby walking trails and neighborhood pond, really made this home unique. We have carefully decorated our home with love and believe this will cause you to fall in love with it too.

Highly Recommend Great Location
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Well maintained property in a quiet neighborhood. Evenings on the deck around the propane fire pit looking at the view were a favorite of the group. Ysela, the owner, is an excellent hostess & made sure we had a wonderful vacation. Will return if we vacation in the area again. Thanks Ysela.
Property was clean, well kept, nicely decorated!
We had a wonderful stay in Colorado Springs. Ysela was so helpful in the whole process and we certainly felt at home. We had everything there that you could ask for, well kept and so comfortable. I'd definitely go back!
The home was outstanding furnishings were elegant and beautiful.
The home was very clean. The owners were fantastic to work with, very accommodating. We were there for my daughters wedding and everything was so perfect. We barbecued 1/2 the time which made our stay so relaxing. The MBR was so large the Bride and her brides maids had their hair and makeup professionally done in the comfort of the home. They stocked the home with plenty of everything and we were so pleased. The neighbors were great to interact with as well. There was a booklet loaded with recommendations to eat, visit, and information for our safety. We enjoyed sitting on the deck with the lit fire pit and the city lights in the backdrop. They thought of everything, they were truly concerned about our experience in their home. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Our family will always be greatful and if we need to stay in Colorado Springs again we will be in touch. Truly caring owners. They have my gratitude and thanks. we will never forget the experience.
The house was amazing. There were 8 of us and we all agreed that we had plenty of room. Our hostess was great if we needed anything she was always easy to get ahold of and help us. I would recommend her home to anyone. The Gonzalez family
Amazing place with even more amazing owners
The owners of this rental are phenomenal. We had an amazing stay. The views from the deck are as good as it gets. The place is really clean and the owners were extremely nice and made sure our stay was great. It doesn't get any better than this VRBO. We will be back to this one as it will be our go to in the Colorado Springs area. The location was perfect for our family. I highly recommend this one as it was the best VRBO experience we have ever had! Thank you for an amazing stay.
