About Darlene

My husband, Gregg, and I have lived in Colorado Springs for nearly 18 years. Our adult children live in Monument and Manitou Springs. If we don't have the answers to your questions, we can very likely find the answers for you in a matter of minutes by reaching out to someone we know.

Gregg and I enjoy traveling and seeing new places in the USA and abroad. We're happy to be able to open our home to you while you visit beautiful Colorado. We're not new at caring for guests and managing residences. Over the years it has been our pleasure to host overnight guests, rent out rooms in our home, and currently we own and manage two short-term vacation rental homes and one long-term rental house in Colorado Springs. We would be honored to have you stay in one of our homes!

Why Darlene chose Northeast Colorado Springs

This property has incredible Pikes Peak views and is so convenient to anywhere in the city, just off of Academy Blvd, it is so easy to get to wherever you need to be. It is on a quiet neighborhood street in a safe community. It has been recently remodeled to make it aesthetically appealing, very comfortable, and truly practical in it's layout.

[Looking for a larger house or a second house to rent for your group? We've recently acquired a second short-term rental house near the North Gate entrance of the Air Force Academy; see the details of that property at HomeAway #4772552. ]

What makes this house unique

The main living area of this house was completely gutted and remodeled in 2016. You'll want to rent this house just to lay eyes on the master crafted custom-designed knotty alder kitchen cabinets, for starters . . . also newly built in 2016 is the private balcony off of the master bedroom and renovations throughout, such as the rustic stone gas fireplace downstairs.

Best experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have been happier with our stay at this property. Darlene was very helpful and answered any questions we had promptly. When we arrived the house was very clean and every room looked exactly like the pictures shown. Including the fabulous view of Pikes Peak. We were all impressed with the cookies left for us and all the brochures with area attractions. I just can't say enough about this property and the thoughtful consideration of the owner. Thanks again Darlene.

Wonderful retreat for our family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property with our family, our parents & brother and had a wonderful time. It was so nice to be able to gather in the morning for coffee & again at night when we returned from our busy days to enjoy each other's company. There was plenty of room to spread out if you wanted to sit on the patio, watch television or just spend time together. The location was great, and the house was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Darlene was wonderful to work with, and makes delicious snickerdoodles which were enjoyed by all. Thank you.

Beautiful Home, Amazing Host

  • 5 of 5

The home is laid-out beautifully - with nice, new furnishings. Perfect for entertaining and the view of Pikes Peak is priceless. Darlene is hands-down the best and most thoughtful host I have experienced after more than a dozen rentals. No need to even look elsewhere... We will be back!

Excellent location - Lots of room

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for our three-generation vacation. Very relaxing atmosphere. All basic necessities were found in the kitchen and were much appreciated. The "house" information manual was very helpful, including adjusting to the elevation! Close enough to area attractions but away from the crowds in a quiet neighborhood. Would recommend to other families for sure.

Great experience, the best one infact

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect, well maintained. Every detail was taken care of , guests instruction booklet was very helpful . There are instructions all around the house to make us feel comfortable not to spend our time figuring out how things work.

Our host Darlene was very helpful . She followed up with us day before and gave details to make our stay comfortable. We had the best experience here, would love to rent again on our next trip to Colorado springs.
