My wife Vicki and I are friendly, sociable and easy to get along with. We love our renovated home and have a beautiful guest bedroom and bathroom that we are sure you'll enjoy.
We only ask that you be respectful, polite and reasonably quiet.
We love to cook, and while we can't guarantee there will be anything other than a basic continental breakfast, if things happen to fall into place you might get an invitation to join us for breakfast or dinner.
My wife Vicki and I have lived in Denver since the early 1980's (Vicki's from Iowa, I'm from West Texas). We love anything outdoors - mountain biking, camping, canoeing and scuba diving/beach-bumming :) We're foodies- Asian, sushi, great pizza, and Mexican in particular. We are coffee fanatics - I make espresso most every day and roast the beans occasionally. We are accomplished cooks who enjoy entertaining, and appreciate good wine. We also enjoy great music - we're regulars at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Red Rocks concerts and especially love live music. And we love being airbnb hosts! Because of airbnb we have met the most amazing, delightful and diverse group of people imaginable.
