About The Owner

I moved to Boulder in 1982 for my first job out of engineering school. I moved into an apartment in an old victorian and my next door neighbor in that apartment is now my wife of 31 years! We purchased the house on Spruce when we married in 1985. It is our primary residence and we enjoy our time living here when it is not rented out.

The Owner purchased this house in 1985

Why The Owner chose Whittier

In 1984 my wife and I bicycled across America. We lived in Boulder at the time and realized after touring the country that Boulder is very special. I have been a nordic ski racer for 38 years. We share a love of cycling and I still love to run the trails close by. Boulder provides the perfect mix of proximity to great outdoor adventure and yet has all the amenities and diversity of a college town. It is not too big and not too small. The city planners had the forethought to purchase open space and keep a greenbelt on the edges of town. Enjoy Boulder,

I know we do!

What makes this house unique

Skiing - Head to Eldora for the day its only 30 minutes up the canyon.

Hiking - Choose Mt. Sanitas or the trails beneath Flagstaff mountain. Lunch at Chautauqua is the best!

Rock Climbing - The third flatiron is a classic climb that can be done by a novice with the help of an experienced guide.

Swimming - Just a few blocks down and you are at Spruce pool

Boating - Rentals are available at Boulder Reservoir

Shopping - The house is close to Pearl Street Mall and 29th Street for an abundance of shops

Theater - Boulder Dinner Theater is a great place to take in a play and a meal

Great place, great location, friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. The location was perfect and the place met all of our needs. We met the owner Pete the day we got in and he was very friendly and shared some great advice for our weekend.

Super location, very clean and spacious, well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

This Downtown Victorian Charmer is a perfect home away from home, we stayed 5 nights. It had everything we needed to make ourselves self-sufficient and yet still so close to the Pearl street with its wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, stores and the fabulous farmers market on Saturday.

The house is spacious, very clean with lots of natural light flooding in. Parking was convenient at the property. We were able to ride our MTB to the trail heads right from the front door, as well as take only short drives to fabulous hiking areas. Only very occasionally we heard the tenants residing in the suite above however that was absolutely not a deterrent to the quiet peaceful location of this home. We would not hesitate to recommend this home to anybody for a wonderful stay in Boulder.

Great location, super comfy, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The location is great, we walked to Pearl St. several times. The weather was nice and we enjoyed the front porch. We also utilized the kitchen which we found to comfortably meet our needs. One challenge , dishwasher was hard to operate (need repair or instructions?). We have stayed at many VRBO’s/Airbnb’s and highly recommend this one, really a great place to stay, we will be back!

Met All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to experience Boulder the way it was when I lived there a long time ago and this house was exactly right for the occasion. Very old house with minimalist decor right in the center of Pearl St district. The private drive was a great perk with enough room for a Superduty and a second car. All amenities were modern and worked, the owner was helpful and a wonderful time was had by all.

Awesome stay right next to Pearl St.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year in a row visiting Boulder on Spring Break. We always try and find a home really close to Pearl St. because there’s so much to do. Our boys love the Barcade and we have to be there when it opens each day at 4pm! The property was neat and clean and was literally a 5 minute walk from Pearl st. The best part about the property was that you actually get a huge driveway to park in and don’t have to struggle to find parking each day when you return home. If you have been to this area before you’ll realize that’s a huge priceless bonus! Also you are on the main floor of the home as well which was awesome. The last two times we came and rented a home we were in someone’s basement and that’s not fun if the tenants above you are loud and noisy. I did see that there have been reviews about the upstairs tenants in this home being noisy but we didn’t experience that. Let’s face it these homes are older and they make noise. By 8 In the morning the tenants above were awake and yes you do hear the water being turned on and the floor creaking with each footstep. That’s what you get when you rent a home. If you want to rent an entire home all to yourself be prepared to spend 5 times as much in this area or just realize your gonna hear some noise. Again we were very satisfied. Two rooms, one for our two boys and then a room for us. Clean, nice full kitchen and again the ease of parking esch day! Thanks for a wonderful visit and we will return.
