Description

The space

This bright, welcoming house sits atop a magical, secluded knoll in downtown's Old North Boulder neighborhood. The flow of the space is comfortable and inviting and takes advantage of the home's expansive views. The decor is designed to be warm, chic, and inviting and we've taken care to make it family friendly with a high chair, kids dishes and utensils, and a crib.

All 3 bedrooms are appointed with brand new memory foam pillow-top mattresses with natural bamboo ticking. There is 1 King bedroom, 1 Queen bedroom, and the third bedroom has 2 Twin beds.

The kitchen is fully outfitted for cooking meals with pots & pans, small kitchen appliances (blender, waffle maker, coffee maker, toaster, etc), kettle, mixing bowls, cooking utensils, baking dishes, serving dishes, measuring cups and spoons, etc. Dishes, flatware, glasses, mugs, tea pot, salt & pepper mills, creamer & sugar bowl, and placemats are also furnished.

The living/dining room is super comfortable, perfect for hanging out and overlooks the foothills, as does the kitchen. It has a great wood burning fireplace that is super cozy in the winter and a new Samsung LED HDTV with Premium HD Cable including HBO and Apple TV. Of course, there is also secure high-speed internet. And, we offer a land line with a local telephone number.

Enjoy harvesting fruits and veggies from the garden. We grow tomatoes, basil, lettuce, arugula, swiss chard parsley, and more in the raised vegetable beds that you are welcome to enjoy from the Spring to the Fall. There are also raspberry bushes, peach trees, and an apple tree to graze from in the garden.

The property is ideally located between the exceptional restaurants & boutiques on Pearl Street and the Ideal Market Shopping Center where there's a neighborhood Whole Foods, Pharmacy w/Post Office, Bakery, Coffee Shop, Florist, Dry Cleaner, Barber, and several more great restaurants. The downtown Pearl Street pedestrian mall is exactly 1 mile away and takes about 10 mins to walk to, Ideal Market Shopping Center is just 4 blocks up the street, both are lovely (website hidden) and Naropa are both easily accessible by foot, bike, bus and car, and the main bus station that has routes to DIA and Eldora Mountain Ski Resort are also a short, scenic walk of about 1 mile.

This house is the entire second story of a duplex. It is roomy at 1200 sq ft. and private because of its unique topographical location. From the house, you can gaze out across the tree tops of the city to the mountains.

There is off-street parking for 2 cars in the driveway where there is a carport, a nice feature when it snows in the Winter. There is also plenty of parking on this quiet street.

Secure bike and ski storage is also available.

Guest access

The entire 3 bedroom unit, parking in the driveway for 2-3 cars, West facing deck off of kitchen, dedicated garden with raspberry bushes & raised beds with parsley and sometimes other things like salad leaves :-)

Really good location, convenient to market, coffee shops and walkable to Pearl Street (approx 1 mile).

Oliver's place is perfect for a group staying in Boulder who doesn't mind walking a bit. It's within 15 minutes of downtown Boulder, but if you're going out at night or heading out to a hike, it's not the easiest to get back to, so ride sharing is definitely your best option. The apartment had enough space for all five of us who stayed, a nice view of the mountains and when we arrived everything was very clean. Plus, the beds were extremely comfortable!

Location was perfect: close to trendy shops & restaurants while providing a welcome break when we needed it. Comfortable beds, lots of towels, and a well-equipped kitchen helped make this an enjoyable stay.

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect home away from home. Very clean and comfortable. Oliver was very easy to communicate with. Our family will certainly come here again.

We truly enjoyed our stay at this property. The apartment is just as nice as it appears in the photos; whoever decorated this place has a great eye. Well done! The kitchen is well-stocked and the beds are comfortable, with good linens and plenty of extra blankets and pillows. It was nice to be able to spread out in a beautiful space after a long road trip with a pile of kids. The neighborhood is rad, too, with restaurants and a small Whole Foods withing walking distance. It was easy to get to more distant destinations as well because of the central location. Oliver was easy to get in touch with and helped us with everything we needed. Our only problem with the apartment was the air conditioner. It was quite warm in Boulder when we were there (high 90's), and when we arrived on the first day, so was the apartment. There's a large air conditioning unit above the front window in the living room that has to cool the whole place; the cool air never quite made it all the way to the back bedrooms, so we had a pretty sweaty first night. We figured out a solution, though (and this is not energy-conscious in the least, I know, embarrassing): if you set the air super low before you leave, the back rooms are tolerable when you get home. I don't know if really warm weather is common in Boulder, but it might be worth installing another air conditioning unit at the back of the apartment. Even with the sweat issue, we would absolutely stay here again. Oliver was an excellent host and the place is just lovely.
