Beautiful Large Home w/Many Amenities

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights in Dec '17, and hosted our employees for an office Christmas party the 1st night. Couldn't have asked for a nicer time. The home is just as beautiful as the pictures. Beautiful kitchen, and the owners emptied the fridge and pantry completely so we were able to bring in all of our own groceries/supplies. Wonderful master B/R and huge master shower on main floor!

The bsmnt has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. One problem we discovered was that 1 of the showers was just a showerhead pointed into a large soaking tub (w/no shower curtain or rod) so water sprayed everywhere. That made that bath completely unusable, so only 1 full bath for 4 bedrooms in the bsmnt. Not ideal.

The theatre room in the bsmnt is perfect, with recliner seating for 7. Worked perfectly and we spent most of our time there. There's also a great BBQ grill on the main level deck which we were able to use. The Christmas decorations were perfect, albeit a bit too Christian/Mormon for our group's tastes.

The casita was lovely with a full kitchen, L/R, bath, and a bedroom downstairs. Also a triple bunk in the casita bsmnt. The fridge in the casita was not running, but we had no need for it so did not inquire about it being turned on/fixed.

The hot tub was not warm when we arrived, but was an easy enough fix and we got it heated before it was needed. No need to contact the owners. Got a lot of use out of the 4 person hot tub!

The biggest drawback is that this is the owner's primary residence, so there were a large number of personal effects around the home. The main level was kept exquisite and very comfortable for guests, however the bsmnt where we spent most of our time was full of lots of family pics and items. Bedrooms had personal pics and items, and the main rec area had MANY prominent family pics hung. While this may be perfectly acceptable in lower end AirBnB type rentals, we felt in an executive rental of this cost it was uncomfortable. We've rented many high end homes over the years and never have we felt like we were displacing someone's family during our stay. The personal pictures were so prominent that even our guests made several comments about it feeling awkward. Not really the tone you want to set when you're dropping a few thousand dollars for a company event.

All in all, w/out the personal pics, we'd give this home 5 stars. It is very lovely and all our interactions with the owners were pleasant. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Good property, would be great with additional shower on lower level

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for a family reunion of 15 of us, a mixed group with seniors & youngsters. Property is very good, newly made, well located and nice facilities for recreation. Youngsters played table tennis and volleyball. The only complaint is having only one shower at the lower level for 4 bedrooms as the shower in the 2nd bath does not work.

Quiet location, beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room at this property with plenty of things to do for all ages. The AC in the small casita wasn't blowing cold air but we were fortunate to have amazing weather while we were there and opened the windows. The property owner was very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend this location, you will not regret your decision. The views from the large porch are amazing!

Lovely home that won't disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Every now and then you come across a home which actually adds to your vacation rather than simply serves as a place to stay. This is one of those homes. The home is very large and lovely and the kitchen is well stocked with all the basics from spices to oil & vinegar, BBQ sauce, etc, which was very welcome. Between the movie room, the volleyball court, the fire pit, the ping-pong table, the foosball table and the pool table, you will never be lacking for something fun to do! The house was also spotless. We rented this house for a group of relatives to stay while in town for a family wedding and it became the central gathering place. We spent most of our time on the very large covered patio. Lovely!!! If I had to make one small suggestion it would simply be that the cookware could use an upgrade and could be more suitable for the 14 people who may be staying in the home (i.e. more and larger pots so that it is possible to cook for a large group) and a few more wine glasses and coffee cups would be helpful. But that said, these are very minor things and you can rent this house without reservation, as you will be delighted. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!!

Great location; very nice home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home and convenient to I-25 for easy access to all things Colorado Springs. Owner helpful with pack-n-play for little ones. Fully stocked kitchen which was needed with house of 15+. Movie theater and ping pong table big hits as well.

Suggestions: only minor would be shower curtain needed in one of the downstairs baths and WiFi in the Cassita(primarily for baby monitor app).

Overall excellent and would go again if back in area.
