I manage the home for my sister and family. In addition, I have 4 other VRBO homes that I own and have managed since 2011. I am a former teacher in Denver, CO, where I live with family. I enjoy working with travelers, as we also LOVE to travel and partake in VRBO as renters ourselves.

This property is a perfect location for traveling families who want privacy and space, yet are close to Denver and the Mountains. The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood so that you can truly relax and get away from the city after a busy day of sight-seeing. The backyard is a spectacular place to host gatherings.
This is a unique property with a beautiful large backyard and so many unique features within the home. The neighborhood is quiet and tree lined and excellent location to all Denver has to offer. Just minutes from the highway to access Denver, the mountains and many ski resorts.
We were a group of extended family meeting in Denver from Washington, Oregon, Iowa and Missouri for a wedding. As the mother of the groom was one of our party we arrived in Denver early in the week so she could participate in pre-wedding activities and also take me sight seeing as I had never been to the area. Janna kept in contact and worked with us on arrival as we were arriving at various times. The house was exactly what we needed. Our party consisted of family ranging in age from 26 to 88 with 7 people total on our last 2 nights and everybody was very comfortable with the arrangement. Loved the location - very quiet neighborhood (although slightly tricky to find - follow the directions closely!) Shopping at WalMart for groceries was very convenient and Whole Foods was also fairly close. I was able to visit Red Rocks Amphitheater, Garden of the Gods and all the way to the top of Pikes Peak. Awesome!! With all the comfortable space at the home we were able to visit with other family from Denver and Montana and even all the way from London, England. Lots of positive comments from our guests as well. I would not hesitate to stay in this home again or one of the other properties offered by Janna in Denver and California if my travels take me to those areas in the future.
Hats off to the folks that own and manage this home! The house was as described and had so many more amenities that I would have expected. We were coming in from Florida right after the hurricane, so we were delayed and a bit frazzled. It was so nice to come into a home where there was coffee and spices in the cupboard, paper towels in the kitchen, soap and shampoo in the bathrooms and so much more, including a nice bottle of red wine. The house was very clean and had a book with lots of information about the house. All my emails in advance were answered promptly. Thanks, Janna. If we come back to Denver we will know where to stay.
We really enjoyed our stay! This is a beautiful home with a spacious back yard. The home is also located in a nice neighborhood and has easy access to whatever you might like to go do. We would definitely recommend this home as a home away!
This home has so many wonderful features. It was PERFECT for our visit to the Denver area.
Our son was getting married and we needed a place for the family to all be together. The bedrooms on the main floor were perfect for the older (55+) generation. The basement area was perfect for the younger (30+) generation. The back yard was large and set up in such a way that we were very comfortable for our pre-wedding family get-together dinner. It was well-stocked with amenities to keep everyone from getting bored - cards, games, bikes.
It is in a great neighborhood. Quiet. Close to the freeway. Close to shopping and restaurants. Centrally located to Golden and Downtown Denver. O'Kane Park was a welcome oasis to explore.
I would definitely recommend this home to my family and friends. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Janna was a dream to work with. She responded quickly to my questions and answered them fully. We have used other VRBO homes for family trips and this is by far the BEST!
Overall, our stay was nice. The home fit our group perfectly and the manager was helpful and attentive.
When we arrived, the neighbor was parked in the driveway until their kids notified them the new guests were there. They neighbor had several kids out front the whole time and even called to report that we left the garage door open all night(which we did not). The bedrooms were what we expected and served us well. The upstairs shower is difficult to adjust and not very user friendly. It is small even for a petite female. The kitchen was a little dirty and dated. The paper products were limited and we neared running out. Lights had burnt out bulbs and the kitchen lighting was dim. The backyard was spacious and private and we enjoyed dinners and evenings outside.
To summarize, our stay was nice but I rated it a 3 because of these few details.
We rented this house for a special event in Denver - our daughter's wedding. We knew we would have multiple guests and be entertaining groups of folks. It served us well and most enjoyed having the house as the hub. Janna is an amazing property manager and acted on every request, question or concern we had. All in all, it was great -- house is spacious, well stocked and perfect for entertaining. If I were to give any constructive criticism, it would be for the following:
- Downstairs is much cooler than upstairs, but shares one thermostat. Putting in another thermostat that can control downstairs temps would be a big plus.
- This is a great place, yet sharing bathrooms can be sensitive for some, so if you are wanting a bathroom to yourself, this may not be the place for you. There are two bathrooms - one on the main floor that serves three bedrooms as well as guests; one downstairs which is private to the bedroom down there, but can be shared as the family/exercise room is also down there. It has a nice large shower, but the mildew discovered in spots needs attention. We made Janna aware of this and she is taking action.
- The backyard is great for entertaining, yet there is a great deal of work that needs to be done to tidy it up. It is overgrown and just needs TLC.
We were there a week and it was a great location and central to everything we were doing. I recommend this house and know that Janna is the best to work with!
