About Darcie

Shannon moved to Colorado Springs in 1999 because of her love of the mountains and skiing! Lloyd moved to Colorado Springs in 2008 after meeting Shannon at a mutual friend's wedding, he quickly left Wisconsin to be with the love of his life (and beautiful Colorado!) We were married at the end of 2009 and decided that we would move out of the home and start our new life in a new home together. (Shannon thought Lloyd was Crazy for this! LOL) We currently reside in Colorado Springs and love all that it has to offer in it's own backyard from, hiking, biking to taking family walks in the many parks! With over 300 days of sunshine, a temperate climate and amazing views why would you not want to vacation in Colorado Springs? Be careful, you might not want to return home!!

Darcie purchased this house in 2005

Why Darcie chose Campus Commons

Shannon worked for the builder and decided to build a custom home when the sub-division was opened. She had the pick of the lots and chose one of the best, mainly because of the open space in the back yard, which feels like your own little sanctuary! Shannon and I rarely stay in hotels when we travel. We love using VRBO and always enjoy the amenities staying in a home offers. So after renting to long term renters we decided that VRBO gives us the opportunity to share this marvelous home with many more families and make their vacations that much better. We love what this city has to offer and this home is right in the middle of everything!

What makes this house unique

What's not to love about this home. First off it's spacious and open and has many custom upgrades; it feels cozy yet luxurious. The best part of the home by far, is the back yard. Whether you are relaxing in the living room looking outside or sitting on the large patio you will feel at peace. You don't even know there are neighbors when in the back yard, it's your own little slice of paradise. Plus, watching the birds, deer, squirrel, and the occasional coyote or bear is always fun! You don't even have to go far to take a hike! The back yard is city park and you can explore all over the area! The other great perk of this house is that it is centrally located. Literally walking/biking distance to University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) and parks like well known Palmer Park. Downtown, shopping, malls, restaurants, golfing, hiking and military bases like the Air Force Academy are minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Lloyd. We loved your home and created great memories there. It is absolutely beautiful and I hope you continue to list it with VRBO because we will be back. We appreciate the opportunity to rent it.

This was an amazing house with a beautiful view. The bunnies came to visit every morning. The house is exactly as advertised. We had a wonderful week and will certainly be back. The master bed was the best bed I ever slept in and the patio was wonderful. Thank you for allowing us to use your amazing home.

This was my first time to Colorado! The house was absolutely gorgeous and very clean. It is in a subdivision at the end of a culdesac, but the house sits back further than the rest of them and it backs up to a park...with hiking trails. There was plenty of wildlife to see out the back of the house. The hot tub was a bonus....absolutely a must on a clear could see soooo many stars!!!! We were close to Manitou Springs, Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods, Red Rock hiking and so much more. My husband and I celebrated our 15th Anniversary here and we both agreed that this was one of our favorite vacation spots. We will def be back time with our children!

The home accommodated everyone, from the more mature ones in our group to our little one. Except for the grill that was dirty, everything else was beneficial and clean. The home is very welcoming and it has everything in the kitchen that one needs to prepare a meal. I did go buy a tortilla roller because my mother made homemade flour tortillas during our stay and left it there for others to use. The yard is very beautiful and relaxing and the basement has plenty of games and a pool-table for those who like fun! Plenty of seating, couches, and beds! Thank you for allowing our stay!

Perfect property for USAFA Graduation Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our immediate family of 10 stayed at this property last week for USAFA Graduation festivities. It was perfect! The backyard is very private and relaxing with a large table, fire pit, and hot tub. The basement pool table and card playing table also saw fun.

There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Beautifully decorated and functional. We baked and cooked many of our meals there and the set up was perfect for feeding our crew. It was the perfect get away in between activities at USAFA.

Hats off to this property for creating additional great memories of the week!

Palisade, NE

This is a beautiful, secluded home in the midst of the city!

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply lovely, from the moment you pull up in the drive, till you tour all the rooms! Our grandkids LOVED the spacious basement and the pool table. We adults spent lots of quality time on the patio around the fireplace. We went on 3 day trips to Royal Gorge (about 1 1/2 hours away), Garden of the Gods, and Manitou Springs.

The only downfalls were we didn't have enough towels, and one bed was uncomfortable. But we just started the washer in the morning and dried towels when we got back. All in all, a fabulous stay! Thank you Jennifer!

There is so much to do in this area, especially if you are an outdoor enthusiast. Many hiking/biking trails all over the city from easy to difficult. Take the COG railway up to the top of Pikes Peak or hike the incline in Manitou Springs. Visit the Air Force Academy, play golf at one of the many courses in town. If pampering is what you are after, visit one of the numerous spas in town and get a massage or your nails done!
