MAPLETON HILL - ARTISTS COLORFUL APARTMENT IN WELCOMING HOME

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Boulder - Susurro

Ground floor of home, 2 Bedrooms + addl. bed, split level, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Exciting News for 2014

We have updated Susurro by adding on site laundry facilities, new refrigerator with ice maker, freshly painted bedrooms, new light fixtures, freshly sealed colorful kitchen floor and more (new photos coming soon!). We think you will appreciate the improvements, making your stay more comfortable and convenient.

Welcome to Boulder, Colorado...everything you want from a big city, yet it feels like a small town; world-class restaurants and shops, a major university, an abundance of cultural events, a plethora of year-round outdoor activities and lots of music from around the globe.

Minutes from downtown Boulder, walking distance to excellent coffee and tea houses, restaurants, bakery, shopping, well equiped grocery store, trails and more. Our artist’s home is located within a quiet, historic residential district known as Mapleton Hill. 'Susurro' - our sunny and light, very private garden/walk-out apartment has a separate entrance and is part of our recently eco-remodeled home originally built in 1910. Our 750 sq. ft. apartment is colorful, eclectically furnished, with hot water baseboard heating, all domestic water filtered, cork floors, lots of light, antique cooking stove, custom trim, open layout, split level (with two steps) - living room/dining room/kitchen, hand painted floor, and mosaic tiled bathroom floor. Our home is a “come and borrow a cup of organic sugar” kind of home. Please note - Susurro is exceptionally well insulated however, we live upstairs, we are very quiet and we do not wear shoes inside our home. If you need total silence please reconsider - you will hear soft footsteps but never voices and in five years we have had only one complaint.

'Susurro' is two blocks away from the foothills of the Rockies with great hiking trails, and the continental divide only a thirty-minute drive away. We are a 30 minute drive to Denver; 30 minute drive to Eldora Ski Resort, 45 minute drive to Rocky Mountain National Park, and 1.5-2.25 hour drive to Loveland, Winter Park, Breckenridge and Vail ski areas.

Boulder has year-round sunshine. The winter season usually brings brief snow storms followed by beautiful sunny days. It's not uncommon to have warm weather in the high 60s-70s in February and March. Late spring and summer offers warm days, wonderful thunderstorms and few airborne pests. Falls are warm with cool nights and some of the most amazing displays of light and color.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.

Keywords: Separate Garden Level/Walk Out Apartment in Home with completely private entrance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am from Medellin, Colombia and am an artist and psychotherapist. I considers Susurro to be an ongoing art Installation as well as the rest of the 'orange house'. Susurro means 'a murmer' in Spanish. It is a custom from Colombia to name your home - hence Susurro. My partner is a bodyworker, 'artist's slave' and musician - playing the mbira (thumb piano) from Zimbabwe.

We have two daughters - one just graduated from college and the other in her final year of college - which makes us old (they think), young (we know)...

We purchased Susurro with the intent of remodeling it - but ended up completely rebuilding it from the foundation up. We were the architects, draftspeople, general contractor, electrician, plumber, interior designer, painters, etc - you get the drift and we are still married - happily.

We have totally enjoyed living here and meeting all the interesting people who have stayed here from different parts of the world.

Bruce Poulter purchased this house in 2004

Boulder is a beautiful city with incredible outdoor activities and cultural events. We chose this neighborhood due to its proximity and convenience to both downtown Boulder and mountain trails. We live in the 'orange house' on the property because we think this is the best neighborhood in Boulder. That being said we are available anytime while guaranteeing your privacy.

We feel incredibly privileged to live in this house and be able to ride our bikes, walk to nearby trails and cafes and enjoy the many and varied events and activities that Boulder offers. We love the sunshine that abounds in Colorado. Susurro is quiet, private and simultaneously centrally located. We invite you to experience the beauty and comfort first-hand! We speak English and Spanish.

GREAT PLACE FOR A VISIT TO BOULDER

  • 5 out of 5
I rented this apartment with a couple friends for a girls' weekend in Boulder. The apartment was great. Colorful, clean, and comfortable. An easy walk to downtown. And dealing with the owner was always smooth and efficient. I would highly reccomend this rental.

CHARMING

  • 4 out of 5
We loved the apartment! It was colorful, clean and certainly has character. The location is great - easy to get to Pearl Street and easy for us to find. I would have given 5 stars but the kitchen is a bit tight on space. Other than that, it was perfect!

GREAT 7-WEEK STAY WITH FAMILY OF 3

  • 5 out of 5
We, a family of three, stayed 7 weeks in Susurro during a work visit to NIST Boulder. It was perfect in all possible ways. The apartment has the right size, comfy beds, all necessary amenities, it is in walking distance to a shopping complex and to Pearl St, a SKIP bus stop (Broadway & North St) is only 5 min away, and a trailhead for hiking 5 min in the opposite direction. We did not need a car. It is totally quiet, no through traffic, there are birds and squirrels, we even saw mule deer in a neighbor's garden one morning. Bruce and Marcela have been fantastic, very respectful with their tenants, and at the same time extremely relaxed and helpful. There was no washer or dryer in place before we came, and when I explained that for our long stay this would be rather important, they installed them before we arrived. We also liked the artists atmosphere in and around the house; for people that expect everything to be right-angle and brand-new, it might not be so optimal. Regarding space, for three persons and such a long stay, the place is ideal, four persons would work just as well, more than four would only be recommendable for a shorter stay. We would always go back to Susurro!
