About Petra

Don Stonebraker and his wife Dorothy built this solar home in 1960, planting many trees which are now fully mature. They were the first company to develop solar in Boulder, and use it today to heat the outdoor swimming pool. Don is a former engineer, military pilot and author, who is continually striving to create new goals and activities for himself -- while simultaneously managing properties in Sedona, Arizona and Boulder. His beloved wife of 72 years passed away Jan. 2015.

Petra purchased this studio in 1960

Wonderful Visit

  • 5 of 5

My sister and two girlfriends and I rented this house for a few days for a trip to visit my daughters in February. The house is lovely and very spacious. We had my daughters and boyfriends over for dinner and there is plenty of room to lounge and visit. Petra stopped by with fresh flowers as a welcoming gift. We didn't use the pool because I didn't realize (or maybe didn't pay attention to the fact) that it is heated. There was snow on the ground when we visited. I'm not sure we would have used it anyway. I will definitely rent the house again when I need the space. The washing machine was broken when we were there so that may be a consideration for some people. The only other possible negative is that a couple of the "bedrooms" don't have doors on them. Ours was basically a girl's trip so it was fine but it may be a problem for couples traveling together.

The location is perfect! Everything is close and the house is on a dead end street with plenty of parking.

Wonderful, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, the pictures can't do it justice. We had a large group and there was plenty of space for us to spread out and be together. The living room and dining room were perfect gathering places, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owner must be a fan of art because there were some wonderful and very unique pieces throughout the home. It was a perfect distance to downtown and was situated in a wonderful neighborhood that was perfect for taking walks. Overall, we really enjoyed our time there and would definitely go back if we are in the Boulder area again.

Great Place, Great VRBO experience

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent VRBO and Air B&B user I cannot say anything bad about this experience. The response was great from our contact Petra and the home was perfect for what we needed! This was a last minute trip for us and the quick communication and information was incredible. I would love to stay again and hopefully will soon. As far as the property itself, it was all that was described and more. The home is HUGE and is in a great location. Delivery of food was no problem, cab ride home from Pearl street was no problem and as a father of 3 boys, room was no problem. Loved it and cant wait to stay again. Thanks Petra!

Very charming home with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed the visit! Our favorite part was being able to use both fireplaces (as Floridians, we don't often get to enjoy fireplace back home so it was great to have the fully stocked wood pile to enjoy a glass of wine after a day on the slopes).

Also Petra was such a pleasure to work with as she was very responsive and accommodating (we had a late flight on our departure day and she was kind enough to let us stay past the checkout time). Thank you Petra!!!!!!!

Great place to stay--great value!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here right before Christmas and had a great time! Very accommodating and friendly. HUGE property, and we had deer in the backyard every morning of our stay. We were just 2 people, so most of the rooms were not used by us, but the living areas, master bedroom, and kitchen were fantastic. The heated pool was a nice bonus. Very quiet neighborhood and close to stores, etc. Great value, as you get so much more here than a hotel. Will stay again!

Relaxing, Zen Home ... can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing three night stay at this beautiful zen home! The pictures do not do it justice. You can't help but feel a sense of relaxation walking into the home. Petra was super communicative from booking to departure and made sure we had everything we could possibly need! Our malamute loved the quarter acre backyard to run around and explore! We didn't use the heated pool but definitely took advantage of the whirlpool tub - when you stay you must take advantage. Quiet neighborhood and super close to all Boulder has to offer! Looking forward to booking our next stay!
