Why Kimberly & Roberta Gantz chose Boulder

Boulder is just a wonderful, energetic, healthy and exciting place to live and visit! I traveled here and fell in love during my first hike at Sanitas trail. Its peaceful and the the kind of place where you can walk down the street and have great conversations with friendly "strangers." We constantly remark on the unreal beauty that is literally in our backyard and we found great properties in the heart of downtown Boulder that allow us to offer accommodations for visitors like yourselves to enjoy all of it!

What makes this condo unique

BEST ACCESS to EXPERIENCE BOULDER! Pearl Street excitement and convenience literally a step outside your door, and - all of these in walking distance as well!! - Boulder Creek Path, Alfalfas Market, 29th Street Mall, Target, Whole Foods, University of Colorado campus and the Hill, Naropa University, Parks, gyms, beautiful trails....

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment is so amazingly beautiful and feels just like home. The bed is seriously one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The location is amazing- very close to pretty much everything on Pearl Street. Thank you!

Amethyst Corner truly an outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

Amethyst Corner oozed character & charm. Kimberly’s many personal touches appreciated. The “Welcome” bottle of wine, organic chocolate chips cookies to the freshly ground organic regular & decaffeinated coffee. A welcome salutation on the chalkboard posted on the patio wall. An outdoor portable heater & Weber gas grill plus extra butane cylinders to enjoy the compact yet comfy patio. Numerous shops & restaurants a short walk to the Pearl Mall area. Enjoyed everyday of the four day stay. Amethyst Corner truly an outstanding property.

Everything you need in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We took a trip to Boulder without the kids and loved our stay here. This place was perfectly located, a block from all the action on Pearl St. It was clean and had everything we needed including a parking spot out back, a nice sized kitchen, a surround sound tv and speaker to play our music. There were other small touches which we very much appreciated and which showed that the owners truly want their guests to love their experience. There was wine, fruit, a few snacks, an excellent guide to the town with helpful recommendations. The porch was a comfortable place to chill and when it was too chilly, we put on the outdoor heater (which the owners bought for our stay at ours and others' suggestions - so nice of them!). If you are looking for a one bedroom place near downtown Boulder, this is the one for you.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Boulder for 3 years and usually stay in a hotel. This trip we wanted to live more like the locals. This cozy little apartment was perfect. The location is great with an easy walk to Pearl Street and its countless shops, restaurants and bars. The apartment itself is well appointed with all the touches of home -- to include homemade cookies on arrival. The property was meticulously clean, and the owners were immediately available and responsive when an outdoor light went out. We will definitely be back and would recommend this charming rental to our friends.
