Overview

About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath home downtown Boulder

Gorgeous 3 bedroom and 2 full bath Victorian home located in downtown Boulder - walk to Pearl Street or stay and enjoy the sanctuary of the backyard! All 3 bedrooms offer a queen bed with closet and dresser so you can settle in. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make a delicious home cooked meal, beds are made with soft linens and bathrooms are stocked with towels and soaps. Home offers modern kitchen with granite countertops and 1 push espressos, gorgeous dining room with bar, front sitting room with pellet stove and media/library room in addition to the 3 bedrooms and 2 full bath. Secure WiFi as well as Cable and Apple TV where you can stream net flix or movies from your computer. Fenced in and professionally landscape backyard and deck offer perfect spot for grilling and dining or just relaxing on the outdoor living room furniture. Plenty of on street parking in addition to the driveway but a car really isn't necessary as you can take the RTD bus direct from the airport to a downtown stop just several blocks from the home. Spruce Pool is just one block away so the kids can splash around during hot summer days! I have tubes if you want to tube down the Boulder Creek and there are 2 cruisers available as well if you want to ride around the many bike paths and downtown. There is also a pack and play (no sheets) at the house so you don't need to worry about lugging that with you:)

Dogs are welcome with a doggie door, dog beds and a fenced in yard!

About Liz Geronime

I am an established professional in Boulder and enjoy traveling

Liz Geronime purchased this house in 2005

Why Liz Geronime chose Boulder

I have been renting my home for 5 years now and am overwhelmed by the positive response! The home offers an inviting feeling and the backyard is perfect for BBQs in the summertime. In the winter enjoy the pellet stove and great conversation in the sitting room just next to the media/library room.

What makes this house unique

Whether you are on the rocking chairs on the front porch, curled up with a book in the window bench, firing up the grill in the backyard or running a bubble bath in one of the 2 full bathrooms you are never far from all the downtown Boulder has to offer - just 3 blocks away and you will find yourself on Pearl Street with unlimited restaurants, shops, spa's and services.

Attentive Owner and Nice Enough but Older, Bohemian House

  • 4 of 5

Liz, I believe its Liz, seems to be a very nice, attentive Homeaway Owner. And her house does exist and is marked correctly on the calendar, which is an issue I am experiencing more and more with HomeAway. The entire booking process is unfair and it is my suspicion that many of the homes listed on HomeWay (and other similar sites) aren't really available but serve instead as "window dressing" to validate the site's credibility and market share. So after a week of waiting 24 hours at a time for the same "sorry the house is not available for your dates, we will update our calendar (which never happened for any listing)," Liz responded to one of my desperate emails and said that, yes indeed, her home would be available.

So I requested and she readily accepted and we arrived. Her home's location is fine, it's a bit of a transitional area but the proximity to Parks and Pearl Street is as advertised. The further West you go the better the location and proximity to what visitors will most likely be attracted to in the area.

Overall, the house was mostly as advertised and served our purposes. The owner seems to be well travelled and I didn't have any major issues. I gave the home 4 starts because it shouldn't be held accountable for the non-user friendly rental system. There were a few deficiencies as follows:

The house is old and not particularly child friendly. The stairs are steep without a handrail. The AC is a swamp cooler which helps but doesn't remove humidity (yes it can get humid in Boulder, I go to Denver/Boulder twice a year at minimum) and it won't fully the cool the house when it gets hot (again yes it does get hot, 99F on one day of our visit and commonly in the 90's during late June through Aug). In order to get/keep the downstairs cool at night, you have to freeze people upstairs and even then its a struggle to get the downstairs cool. The beds and sheets and pillows are old as well and of medium quality at best, just an FYI, and I'm not sure about all the beds being "Queen's". The welcome letter is thorough but involves a lot of "beware(s)," mostly that stuff is old and won't work well.

Most important is me and my family had a place to stay and it was quiet, secure, and hospitable. I thank Liz fro her hospitality and would urge her to spend about 2k updating and repairing her home and she will surely get all 5 star ratings in the future.

Charming Victorian & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property with friends while visiting Boulder. It is a great location within walking distance of Pearl Street. You can even walk all the way to hiking trails too! Liz was so pleasant to contact with questions and made checking in and out of the property so easy! The home is great for a group of adults, has everything you need and we loved being able to spend some time outside on the patio and front porch too.

Incredibly Relaxing for a Family

  • 5 of 5

This home felt welcoming, convenient, and charming in a perfect location. My three sons could roam throughout the home in a safe, playful, and spacious location with safe outside areas. Liz was kind, accessible and responsive. A+

Boulder Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay while visiting Boulder. Not only is the house beautiful, with everything you need, but Liz is a wonderful host.

The house is in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood but walking distance to the Pearl Street Mall which has shops, restaurants and nightlife. Liz made the whole process of booking, getting the key and checking out very easy and she was extremely attentive to our needs. I recommend this home away from home highly.

Great Home in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here last summer for the IRONMAN. The house was cozy, well appointed, and in a perfect location. And although we did not get much time to lounge in the backyard, it was a great backyard. Liz was very accommodating, responsive, and easy to work with. Overall it helped make for a great weekend!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Boulder! We spent a wonderful week at Christmas with our adult children and our son’s Husky puppy (she loved the backyard). We walked to Pearl Street frequently and also took walks in the neighborhood with the puppy. It was also an easy walk to Whole Foods for shopping. We found some great hiking trails relatively close by. The house was cozy and very clean with a terrific stove in the living room. Liz (the owner) was wonderful to work with; she met us at the house when we arrived and showed us how everything worked. She was also easy to reach / contact if we had any questions. Great house would highly recommend it (and would definitely stay there again).
