About this listing
Unit is a one bedroom, one bathroom unit. Small kitchenette and functional living area. Recently installed (May 2015) brand new stackable washer/dryer in the unit. Includes carpeting throughout the unit. Queen size bed with storage compartments under the bed, large IKEA dresser, humidifier, pots and pans for small cooking opportunities, IKEA sofa bed and two HD tv's with Direct TV. Great space and urban living!
This historic row house was designated a historic landmark and was built in 1883 as the first Denver neighborhood established by slaves! Great history and even better location!
The shared backyard is a great way to socialize with the neighbors in the row house as the demographics of the tenants are young, working professionals. Most of the tenants in this building are very friendly. Visitors will have access to use the detached two car garage for parking as necessary! One car can be parked in the garage by Airbnb guests if so desired! Check with me first as I occasionally park in there. Also, construction of a 13 story apartment building behind the building has limited access to the garage. Check with me first to determine if the garage is available. Parking is allowed on the street in front of the Row House.
Interaction with guests
I will provide easy check in instructions via text and occasionally meet some of the guests the following day after check in. You may see me coming and going.
The neighborhood is one of Denver's oldest with access to several shops and restaurants within five minutes walking distance! The Light Rail is also a three minute walk to the nearest station (20th and Broadway Station), which gives the visitor access to several parts of Denver all for a reasonable price, eliminating the need to rent a car! Rental car place a five minute walk away as well. Uber and Lyft are also viable options if your drinking!
10 minute walk to downtown and 3 minute walk to the light rail station ($2.25 one way) which can take you to various parts of Denver and the suburbs. I recommend downloading the Transit APP as it gives you various options for getting cheap and expensive transportation in whatever city you are visiting. I used it in Chicago and it came in handy. Uber and Lyft are also a viable option at reasonable rates. Public transportation is also a $9 Light Rail ride (A Line from Union Station to DIA) to or from DIA, which is a seven minute walk from the Rowhouse! (Union Station) Denver Bike share station (B-Cycle) is a few blocks away at 22nd and Tremont. This is a good option to explore the city via bicycle.

I have finally moved back to the Row House, but I am generally pretty quiet! You may see me coming or going and I may be helpful in providing you with ideas on where to eat or where to go for fun! (from a local perspective!) It should be noted as well that I control the thermostat for the downstairs AC and heat. If temperature adjustment is needed, just text me and I will make the adjustment as needed. There are electric baseboard heaters in the unit in the dining area, bathroom and bedroom. These keep the unit pretty toasty in the winter if you need an extra boost in addition to the furnace heater vents!
Early check in is sometimes doable as it depends if there was a guest the prior night to your arrival. If not, I have no issues with allowing you to check in early. You are welcome to check in as late as you need. Same goes with late check outs. If there is no guests scheduled to come in on the day of your check out, a late check out is a doable. It may also depend on the cleaning crews schedule, but generally they are pretty flexible as long as they don't have to rush to get the place ready for the next guest. Just ask as I will try to accommodate you if I am able to.
Per Denver City and County Ordinance as of 1/1/2017, hosts are required to collect a 10.75% Lodgers Tax on all stays under 30 days. Booking is a two step process. After your reservation is accepted, you will receive an e-mail from the Resolution Center with a request for the Lodgers Tax for your reservation. You must accept this charge within 24 hours of booking (or immediately for same day Instant Bookings), or your reservation may be cancelled, as hosts are required to collect it. Your booking will show a 4% tax that is collected directly for the State of Colorado, but unfortunately, the City/County of Denver has not yet integrated their Lodgers Tax in the reservation process, thus creating this additional step. Feel free to search"Short Term Lodgers Tax Denver" to verify this is a legitimate fee if you have any questions.
Other Things to Note:
- No smoking inside. You can smoke (cigarettes) on outside backyard patio. Please no smoking of marijuana inside the premises as I will note this in your review and it may harm future bookings with Airbnb.
- No loud music after 11:00pm.
- Internet network and password:
- There will be a piece of paper with network and password instructions written on the dresser in the bedroom as well as the red IKEA table in the living room. It is expected no illegal downloading of material will occur.
- No pets are allowed per the HOA rules!
- Check in instructions will be sent via Airbnb e-mail to you prior to arriving and
- Checkout instructions will be sent via text the evening before scheduled
departure! They are simple and easy to follow!
-You are allowed to have guests in the property but prefer no more than four people inside at once!
- I have had people sneak in other "couple guests" to avoid paying an extra charge. Remember I live above the unit and it's not worth the embarrassment of explaining this to me. Just be honest and I MAY let it slide! Honesty and integrity is golden!
