About Linda Reed
My husband Mike and I, (Linda), bought our business in the heart of downtown Manitou nearly 20 years ago. We decided to convert the Condo in the back of our building to a vacation rental this year and have really enjoyed decorating and refurbishing it. We have decorated it in a southwestern and Mexican motif as we have the same style in our own home. We have enjoyed trips to Mexico and the southwest and want to give our guests a similar warm atmosphere. Come see us, we look forward to meeting you.

Wonderful vacation. This VRBO location is one of the best we've stayed at. Central location surrounded by great attractions, scenery and restaurants. Ms. Linda and her staff were delightful and very helpful with local information. GREAT VALUE. Dr. Stokes&SUSAN
We so enjoyed our stay in Manitou Springs! The location was great, close to shops, dining and fun for the adults as well as the kids. Easy drive to hiking as well! Just what we were looking for.
We loved staying here. Walking in the early morning is fantastic.. Location of the property make it very easy. Apartment is over the top cute and clean. Everything thing you need to have a great vacation. Owner is super nice and helpful. Ladies FYI the apartment is connected to owners jewelry shop! Take a little extra money....Lol Also, restaurant next door is amazing! I highly recommend this property.
Loved being in the middle of Manitou!
Please be sure and read all reviews! We did and knew what to expect.
We loved being in the middle of Manitou! We cooked breakfast in the morning to save money (two teenagers and a husband with low sodium needs) and ate a late lunch/dinner once we got back. Loved that we had so many eating and shopping options where we stayed! Evenings were beautiful so we would just walk and enjoy the weather.
Very clean! It’s older, but they have kept it up. Bathroom is small, but stairs are right outside the bathroom and we used that as our vanity. Loved having a washer/dryer during our stay! With two teenagers, it meant I could wash a load before heading home. Master bed was super comfy and warm blankets and kids didn’t complain on their sleeping quarters.
Biggest downside, but we knew going in from other reviews. It IS noisy. We kept the ceiling fan on and I have a white noise app on my phone. The bar didn’t bother us, but workers from the restaurant next door would wake us ate night talking taking a smoke break and a trash truck every morning at 5:45AM. Thankfully we were able to fall back asleep, but if you are a super light sleeper, or have small kids, you need to be aware. We enjoyed waking each morning, drinking coffee, then getting the kids up to start the day.
Owner does have the condo stocked with plates and pans for cooking, and staples needed to cooking (like cooking spray). There is a Safeway a few miles down with road so you can stock up on whatever is needed.
Juggling cars. Not a big deal to us. We usually left before they came to work, and when we got back, we just popped in the store and they would switch cars with us right then so we could head to dinner and they could leave work on time. There is NO open parking on the streets, so having parking is wonderful, even with juggling to switch cars out. We never had to wait verbs few minutes.
The Loop (Mexican) next door is super yummy! And Oka Ramen was sooooo good! ( never had it, tried it for the first time).
Would highly recommend as long as you know in advance the noise and parking issues!
Cutest property ever...
We very much enjoyed our recent stay at the apartment above Osburns in Manitou. The historic building hides a gem of an apartment in the back. We basically just used it as a place to sleep and shower, but one could easily cook and entertain a small family here; it has all amenities. the location is ideal for anything you want to do in Manitou or the west side of Colorado Springs during the day. There is a ying to every yang. Being Close to all of the action during the day, also means you are close to all of the action at night. One of the more popular bars in Manitu is right across the street. Very very loud music well into the early morning on weekends . There is no running, hiding, or blocking it out. It was not a big deal to us. Based on previous reviews we knew to expect it as a possibility. I just feel that it is important that if you are traveling with young children or a small child that has a set bedtime, you take this information to heart. Frankly, we just put our earbuds in and we drifted off to sleep. The care that goes into maintaining this property should be the standard with all property owners. Parking was not an issue, although there is a process involved with the rearranging of cars as one comes and goes... its simple, just give yourself an additional time when leaving somewhere . We will be back !
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I certainly hope you do come back again. Have a wonderful summer. Take care of yourselves. Linda Reed
Perfect location for 2 nights
We stayed here for 2 nights in April and the location could not have been more awesome! Right in the heart of Manitou, walking distance to numerous shops, restaurants, mineral springs and the fabulous penny arcade! Absolutely ideal!
The condo itself is nice. Spacious living & dining area, fully equipped kitchen, comfy sofas, 2 TVs, covered patio. But unfortunately, the only bathroom is upstairs and the toilet is SO small that it felt kindergarten size.
Parking has to be coordinated with the owner but it was not a big deal for us. We were grateful to have dedicated free parking in the middle of Manitou Springs!
Overall a great spot to explore this part of the world and a bargain for the price! Thank you Linda!
Hi Shannon, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again. Enjoy your summer.
