Description

The space

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!

OTHER PERKS:
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!)

Getting around

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.

Stop looking. Stay here. The house: * Clean * Chic (awesome decorations, exposed brick, the coolest bathroom I've ever seen) * Comfy - the couch...oh man that couch... * Amazing kitchen * Quiet, comfy backyard The location: * Tons of stuff super local (bars, supermarkets, places to eat) * Just a brief jaunt to museums or down town * $6 in uber fair to get just about anywhere else local (RiNo, LoHi etc) Joe was a great host providing TONS of info on the area before check in, helping out during check in, and being very accommodating at check out. Overall this was such a great place to stay. The house has tons of character and is in such a great location you'd be silly to stay anywhere else.

Joe was awesome, very responsive throughout my stay. The apartment is in a great spot, near grocery stores and downtown, and had everything I needed. Joe was a huge help describing the best places to get parking in the area and laid out local restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Great bed and nice large bathroom with a cool clawfoot tub! Nice backyard space and lots of sunny windows.

Due to an unforeseen last minute booking, Joe immediately responded to my inquiries and took great care of us. His home is just as you'd want, loaded with character and warmth (along with an amazing sticky-note art piece). The neighborhood was nice and quiet and not far from any amenities. And don't forget the beautiful kitchen, wow. Further, Joe stayed in touch throughout the week to make sure we were okay and gave great advice in the neighborhood, which we gladly used. This was our first time using AirBNB and thanks to Joe, I feel more confident using it in the future.

Joe's place was great! The apartment it self was definitely lived in but was still very clean to my standards. The location was the bomb; walking distance to multiple grocery stores, a 7 eleven, and a variety of restaurants. Downtown was about a 30 minute walk. The Art Museum, History Museum, and Botanical Gardens were also easy walks. The Neighborhood felt safe as well. Parking was pretty difficult at times but not impossible. I would definitely recommend Joe's place.
