About this listing
1000' first-floor walking-friendly close-to-downtown Denver pad.
Hi! My place is the entire first floor of an old house, built back when Denver was a small little city and you could get to where you were going to easily by foot. Know what? You still can! You can walk anywhere you need to from here. It's a 15 minute walk from downtown -- or 5 minutes, if you catch the #10 bus a block away (it comes every 15 minutes).
Summer note: I don't have air conditioning. I have a box fan and windows. Denver can be hot (dry-hot not humid-hot).
Parking around here isn't ideal, sure, but you'll love the peace and quiet and of having this 1,000 square foot condo all to yourself (this place is BIG for places in the neighborhood). There's a neighbor in the coachhouse in the back (quiet, friendly), and a neighbor upstairs (quiet, Irish). You'll have full access to my meager record collection, decent CD collection, and awesome kitchen. There's laundry in the place! It's free! A washer *and* a dryer! If you get scared of modern clothes-drying appliances I have a clothes rack for you to use instead!
Enjoy coffee? As long as you know how to operate a french press, you will reap the benefits of the most amazing bean on the planet.
You also get a back yard, a recently remodeled kitchen, dishwasher, wifi (free, duh) and firepit in the back yard.
This place was built in 1889 but it sure doesn't feel like it. For one, electricity. Note! There is no air conditioning! I've never had a problem with the heat, but I am not you.
Also note: I'm flexible on check-in and, usually, check-out.
Also note: Cheap cleaning fee. It used to be zero, but now I'm hiring people (and paying half of it myself).
I say it sleeps three because the bed sleeps two and there's a couch (this awesome red-leather L-shaped sectional, best couch I've ever owned), which can technically sleep two, but would most likely just sleep one.
Also, it's now two short blocks from the nearest Denver B-cycle ( just search for "Denver BCycle" on the ol' goog -- airbnb hides web addresses.) station -- great from getting from point A to point B. There are car-shares in the neighborhood too, which would be useful for you if you already had an account with one of them (have a Car2Go account? You're in luck!)
You've got access to the whole place.
Denver was rated one of the two worst cities *in the world* for accessibility of mass transit from the airport to the city. That said, we just got an airport train this year. And my neighborhood is one of the best for multi-modal transportation options. Bus. Bike share. Car share. As good as it is for this sharing stuff, it's pretty bad for parking. If you're bringing a car with you let me know and I'll tell you my strategy for finding parking, as well as the last-ditch-backup-secret-parking lot I've only had to use once in my five years here.
No smoking tobacco, noise after 10:30 p.m. needs to happen in the front of the house due to upstairs neighbors who have to wake up super-early.
