About Carol

This is my home, I raised my son here. I am an Executive Search Consultant and recently launched a career/job board, CareerMeetingplace. I am also a professional photographer and closet torch singer.

Carol purchased this house in 2003

Why Carol chose Boulder

We love Boulder, our location is ideal, our home is a few blocks from the best restaurants in town, swimming pool, hiking trails, rock climbing, kayaking and recreational centers. Boulder is a town, but offers the benefits of a big city, excellent restaurants and bars, shopping, art galleries, all within walking distance!

Boulder offers rafting, biking, hiking, the open space is a priority to our wonderful city!

What makes this house unique

Huge, Fenced In Backyard, Outdoor Living, Flagstone Patio, Outdoor Furniture, ClawFoot BathTub, natural gas Grill & 50" Flat Screen TV

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the gorgeous backyard, patio and hot tub, along with the walk to town location. CarolAnn was a gracious host and we very much enjoyed our stay.

Perfect for family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family spent the entire week together at this home in March, and it was perfect for our needs. The location of this home is perfect. Set in a quiet family neighborhood within walking distance to the excitement of Pearl Street, we did all of our traveling in town by foot. Another highlight of this rental is the enormous backyard, which offered a ton of space for lawn games and grilling out. Being that the weather was great, we spent much of our time in the back yard lounging around, playing bocce ball, and throwing the frizbee... the pictures don't even do this yard justice, it's HUGE! The beds were very comfortable and the large dining area was a great place for us all to gather and eat meals together.

As far as Boulder itself, what a great place for a family vacation. Many restaurants and bars within blocks and so many great places to hike and explore the mountains within 30 minutes.

This is a great rental for families and travelers looking to experience Boulder like they actual live in the community rather than just visiting.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a charming neighborhood and close to all the shopping and fun of Pearl Street. Carol, the owner was very accommodating and prompt with specific requests to help make our Thanksgiving day holiday complete. The backyard is huge and made a great play area for our granddaughter.

Great location and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Boulder for CU Family Weekend. Wanted a house to be able to send time with our daughter. This place was perfect! We had plenty of room for all 4 of us. Cute kitchen to cook our daughter a home cooked meal she was so looking forward to. Location was perfect. Close to Pearl Street and quiet neighborhood. House was very comfortable. Beds were comfortable as well. Nice big backyard. Driveway for parking instead of street parking which was a plus because street parking can be hard to come by. Cute porch and rocking chairs to relax on. Nice having two bathrooms. Washer and dryer were nice to have with a college student. BBQ was a plus. Owner was very nice. Would come back!!!

We loved staying in this charming house with a great back yard. We enjoyed the great front porch in the beautiful front yard and neighborhood. We had plenty of room for four adults and three kids. We could easily walk to Pearl Street to enjoy shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Great place to stay.

definitely would not rent from owner again

  • 1 of 5

The location was excellent and the yard was beautiful.

The owner was unreliable and unresponsive and failed to mention that the house was FOR SALE and that she listed the house 2 days prior to our arrival. She asked us to leave for showings more than once per day, on 4 out of 10 days. She offered to reimburse part of our fee for this inconvenience and it was pulling teeth to get her to follow through.

When I initially booked, I planned to bring our dog. When we decided not to bring him, she agreed to refund the pet fee. She still hasn't followed through.

Her cabin is in the yard of this house so she was constantly in our rented space and there was little privacy. Every time she wanted to show the house, she would rearrange our things in the manner she preferred. At one point my teenage daughter found herself in the shower and the curtains covering the window facing the street had been put away in a bedroom closet. Quite awkward.

There was no closet space (it was filled with her things) and the upstairs shower drains all the hot water for 45 minutes. Further we had no hot water at all for 3 days because during one of the house showings, someone must have turned the hot water thermostat off.

Most unpleasant has been dealing with the owner and her inability to keep her word. She is very agreeable until she has to follow through.

Great place for family with young kids!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband and kids, ages 4 and 6) stayed here the last week in September for a family getaway. The home is very spacious, giving up tons of room to stretch out and relax. Really, it was too much room for just the four of us, but that's what made it great! The backyard was HUGE and perfect for the kids to run around. Location was perfect to access Pearl St. Maybe a 15 minute walk along the prettiest neighborhoods in Boulder and you're there. If you do need to drive, you have driveway parking, so you don't have to fight the neighbors for a parking spot when you return. Grocery stores are about a 10 minute drive away, but lots of items are already there like spices, plastic bags, even soap in the bathrooms. If there is a need or problem, CarolAnn lives in town and makes sure it is taken care of. She takes pride in her property and it shows in her attention to her renters!
