Rare apt in Heart of Town! Blend of nice design, old farmhouse, and modern updates. Charming living space and sought after location with easy access to the Best of Boulder. Enjoyable community feel: shared yard and drop in visits from local deer.

The space

This unit is located in the heart of North Boulder with great trails, shops, restaurants and the famous Pearl St. Mall within a couple of blocks. The home was built in 1910 and has my home since 2001. Nestled in between the well established Mapleton District and Newlands neighborhood it is in an unbeatable location! Over the years it has been fun to create the house and yard as a shared community built with respect for the space, the gardens and the needs of folks coming and going.
The apartment has a well designed bathroom and kitchen, with terraced patios for grilling, entertaining or just a quiet morning cup of coffee. The large park like yard creates a unique sense of privacy, calm and spaciousness.

Guest access

Apartment has its own entrance, own furnace and 40 gallon hot water tank.
Onsite shared washer and Colorado clothesline

House Rules

No smoking/ No pets Please.
Given that the house also includes a separate unit upstairs, it is good practice to be mindful of each other and respectful with regards to noise.
I have found it is easy to live with others when communication is good and folks are respectful towards others.
The flooring in the living space and dining area is new- so extra attention is required to protect it from water damage or any spilled liquid.
Other than that, enjoy yourself, I look forward to meeting you!

Great place for a couple to stay in Boulder. Apartment is just as described (if not better). Garden and patio areas also make it special. Good location, easy to walk to Pearl Street Mall (as parking not easy). We have had a great break here. Would recommend!

Staying at Brenda's place was a fantastic experience! Lots of space, clean, private and close enough to walk to all that downtown Boulder has to offer! 10 out of 10 - would recommend!!!

After dozens of reservations in multiple countries and cumulative months spent at Airbnb's in the last few years, this was my first Airbnb that I wouldn't recommend whole heartedly to a friend. I pick Airbnb over hotels for 2 main reasons: 1. The home benefits and cost savings of being able to cook and do laundry while travelling. 2. A comfortable space to relax and work. We had a series of moderate mishaps that sort of voided out those 2 benefits. The kitchen stove had a leak that made the space smell like propane for all of our 10 day stay. The refrigerator wasn't set at the proper temperature and all our food spoiled in the first 3 days. The washing machine is actually in the the house upstairs and was in use or behind a locked door most of the time we needed it. Nonetheless, the space is quite comfy and charming if the stove is fixed and perhaps a warning on the fridge to turn it up if the guest plans to put perishables in it. The yard is lovely and the host was very warm.

We did not meet Brenda because she was away, which was unfortunate because we ran into problems. The boiler kicked in at 3am with a loud noise that sounded like a diesel truck next to our bed. It went on for an hour. We could not go back to sleep after that. We got information to turn it off, so we were able to sleep the following night. Unfortunately the electrical system is also old (the kitchen is tiny) so when I plugged the electrical kettle when the microwave was on, the fuses blew. Finally no shampoo, soap, coffee, sugar were provided. Otherwise the bed is excellent, the apartment tastefully decorated, and the patio pleasant. But this was not enough to make up for the rest.

Brenda was one of the most welcoming, warm and helpful hosts I have ever met (and I have met a lot of them). She genuinely cared about my well-being, went out of her way to accommodate me, and responded to my requests quickly. I was deeply touched by how much of her time and energy she put into making sure my stay was as comfortable as possible. I am very grateful.

I have lived in this home and rented the 1 bedroom apartment out since 2001. My life has been enriched by the amazing people who have shared this place and brought their own life experiences and energy. Folks from Copenhagen, Australia, Thailand, New York and right here in Colora…
