About Donna Ligon

I went to college in Boulder and knew it would be my home for the long haul. Although I left for 8 years - to Portland and San Francisco, I returned in 2002, and haven't looked back. I adore Boulder. To me, there's no better quality of life, and I've lived in some great places! My husband and I love to travel, and see other amazing spots around the globe. But coming home to this wonderful town is always a joy.

Donna Ligon purchased this house in 2002

Why Donna Ligon chose Whittier

I love being so close to downtown, but not right IN IT. This neighborhood is incredible, I have wonderful neighbors, it's safe, and you can walk or ride your bike anywhere within ten minutes. We remodeled the house in 2012 instead of buying somewhere else because the location is just too good!

What makes this house unique

The house is set up a bit more like an urban loft, with the living room and master bedroom upstairs. I love that - it feels like a treehouse. For the size of the house, and being so close to downtown, we actually have a lot of outdoor space, - and we utilize it all year round. the upper deck is our favorite for brunch, cocktails and dinner al fresco, and at night we love to sit by the fire pit and enjoy the hot tub. Feels like vacation all the time!

Beautiful house, close to the best of Boulder

  • 5 of 5

We rented Donna's gorgeous house for two weeks -- my elderly parents, my husband, and myself. It is obvious this is a much loved home of a couple with great taste and a future in hotel management. Everything was exactly as advertised and even better. The property was immaculate when we got there, and there was TONS of storage space. The outside space (above and below the deck, where there is a lovely hot tub and gas fire) got a ton of use as did the lovely kitchen, which was well equipped for making all sorts of meals, though mostly we made coffee and tea. Because why would you cooke when you are blocks away from some of Boulder's best restaurants (as well the really fun, always lively pedestrian mall). Donna was a conscientious hostess, offering some great eating out suggestions as well as checking in several times with us to make sure everything was going well. Also, a great boon when the nieces and nephews visited for a day, there is an awesome public pool just a couple blocks away (lap swimming is an option as well as kid paddling). All in all, the perfect vacation in the perfect house!

Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a stay in this wonderful little home! This rivals a high-end hotel with all the amenities. Although small, the layout (king suite downstairs and king suite upstairs) and outdoor living areas make it feel larger. Despite the rainy week we managed to enjoy the grill, hot tub and fire pit on several evenings. The only thing lacking was a microwave (for reheating my coffee all morning!!) but it's funny how you can adapt. The location was so convenient to the happenings of downtown Boulder, we walked everywhere (weather permitting). The owners were extremely "hands-on" and were concerned with making our stay as comfortable as possible (their restaurant recommendations were spot-on). These owners really were heads above others that we have dealt with at VRBO over the last several years. We're already talking about what we want to do on our next trip to Boulder and we will definitely be looking forward to a return stay at this home!

Owner's Response: Paula- Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our home, and of us as owners. It is so important to us that you were comfortable and that your needs were met. (Sorry about the microwave - I haven't had one since high school, and we struggled with whether or not to add one during our renovation, but neither of us use them!) We hope you do come back to Boulder - we would love to host you again and give you even more tips on enjoying our wonderful little city! Take care - Donna and Mike :-)

Gorgeous and Mondern Home in a 5 Star Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week with my dog and could not have been more pleased. From the upscale decor to the functional amenities, I felt like I was staying at a top notch hotel. The main floor has everything I needed: King bed with a pillow top mattress, huge luxury shower, warm fireplace, full cable/internet access and a clean, gorgeous kitchen. There is another bedroom and full bath on the first floor too! I fully enjoyed taking bubble baths in the deep soaking tub. Oh, and I can't forget the outdoor deck with a hot tub and fire pit! My dog thought she was in heaven! We were mere blocks from Pearl Street - so much fun to walk to the coffee shops, clothing boutiques and art galleries. I look forward to returning for another awesome Boulder vacation!

Car: recommended

We are located in the Whittier neighborhood, only 2 blocks from Pearl street. You can walk down Pearl from the amazing East end to the West end, walk to hiking, biking trails, shopping and many restaurants. We are close to the action but you will have no problem parking, and no noise from local establishments.
