About Arran Huckstep

We've lived in the Springs since the Air Force brought us here in 1996.

Arran Huckstep purchased this house in 2006

Why Arran Huckstep chose Colorado Springs

We bought this house with the intent of living in it forever, and started a massive renovation to make it perfect. Six years later the project finished. Ironically we moved about 2 months before the final touches were complete, but we take a lot of pride and pleasure in the level of enjoyment our guests get.

What makes this house unique

I love the indoor pool and the great room. When we lived there we put up a trampoline in the great room and the kids jumped all winter.

My lawyer says to be sure to tell you not to try the trampoline thing. And besides it was before the chandeliers were installed and ruined the airspace.

A great base for exploring all there is to do in Colorado Springs

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here - 6 adults and 5 small children - plenty of room for everyone (the "great room" is an exceptionally large communal space) - and the pool is a wonderful bonus, especially with the kids.

Why not 5 stars? - not as prepared for small children as some rentals we've done (we had to bring our own cribs and high chairs) and some areas could use some better upkeep.

Overall, though, great house - great location - and a very friendly and accessible owner who helped out a lot.

Excellent location. Quite large and accomadated our large group. Great Pool.

  • 4 of 5

This unit was quite nice. The size of the rooms, the multiple baths and the kitchen were all adequate. Plenty of towels, dishes, and household goods. The air conditioning is quite complicated and doesn’t really work in the lower level. My guests who slept in the 3 rooms downstairs were quite warm. The upstairs air is loud and irregular. However in all we loved the space and had a wonderful visit! Perfect location to get to all the wonderful places Colorado has! Thank you!

A Wonderful Spring Break in Colorado Springs!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in Mr. Huckstep's lovely home. He was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and fun places to go. The kids enjoyed the pool and theater room. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
