The space

Adorable, sunny 1 bedroom mother-in-law apartment with spacious living room, kitchenette, and small bathroom on a residential street. The unit has a private entrance and is self-contained (but attached to our main house.)

The place is perfect for a single or couple looking for private, well-appointed accommodations for a great value.

The living room has hardwood floors, a comfy sofa, TV/DVD player with Netflix and Amazon Prime access, high-speed wi-fi, and big windows with lots of sunshine. There is a small table with 2 chairs for working on your laptop or dining.

The bedroom has more great windows, a large walk-in closet, queen size bed with soft linens, and a ceiling fan for summer time. (We do have central AC and a supplementary window unit for cooling)

Bathroom is pint-sized perfection with tiled shower enclosure and sink/toilet. It's quite small, but we've managed to maximize the space. (Just be aware - it's the smallest bathroom you've probably encountered outside of an airplane.) Towels, basic toiletries and medicine cabinet storage are provided.

Kitchen has refrigerator, 2 burner portable cooktop, toaster oven, coffee maker, microwave and electric kettle. The kitchen is also fully equipped with cookware and dishes if you want to whip up a meal.

Just a short jaunt from the heart of Denver. Rental includes use of 2 bicycles (just let us know and we'll wheel them around for you)

We live in a quiet working class neighborhood with an eclectic mix of families, students, older folks and even a few chickens! A mile from light rail station, a mile to the Platte River bike trail, and walking distance to bus route. Close to South Broadway antiques/shopping district, 3 miles from Washington Park, 5 miles to Downtown.

Many guests get around on foot or with bikes and an Uber/Lyft supplement. But ideally a guest has a car to make their stay the most worry-free -- particularly in the winter.

Please disclose if you have pets PRIOR to booking. We welcome well-behaved, fully potty trained furry friends - subject to approval prior to booking.

Stay for a few nights or a few weeks! Long term stays (up to 4 months) are considered as well.

Guest access

Guests have access to side yard and seating area (fenced for pets) in front of the mother-in-law apt.

Interaction with guests

We live next door but typically allow guests to come and go with very minimal interaction. We welcome questions and conversation -- but respect a guest's privacy first and foremost.

The neighbourhood

Our neighborhood is eclectic and diverse. We have retirees, college students, families with young children, urban farmers, and even bee-keepers. You can walk to several great restaurants, ride your bike to the river trail, or just hop in your car and head to the mountains!

Getting around

Light rail is about a mile. You can walk or ride a bike there and head to downtown and beyond. The bus is about 3 blocks away. A car is preferred for most folks. But the adventurous enjoy the alternative transit, too. Lyft and Uber are always available. In the winter we recommend having a car.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 3PM
Check out by 11AM
Self check-in with smartlock

Check in time is after 3pm, please. Our neighborhood is very safe. But please use good judgment and always lock your car and the apartment when you are away.

Please, no smoking (of any kind) indoors. (420 edibles and vaporizer OK) Smoking outside is permitted but please dispose of butts in your own receptacle – not the yard. Thank you!

Linens are laundered with sterilizing temperature water and changed prior to your arrival. Again, since most stays are less than a week, we don’t typically exchange linens during your stay unless you ask. But if you’d like this service please let us know!

Long term stay guests can request additional apartment cleaning during their stay for $45. We have a wonderful cleaning lady who will clean everything from top to bottom in just a few hours. Just let us know if you’d like her services and we can arrange it for you. You can pay her directly in cash.

There are paper bags next to the trash bin in the kitchen. Glass, aluminum, paper and plastics 1-7 can be recycled. No separation necessary – just toss it in there.

Additional instruction, maps, recommendations and advice will be provided in a booklet in the apartment for you.

Our stay at Jess's place was excellent. She was available to hear our additional requests, and the apartment is centrally located, allowing us to visit Colorado very easily.

This apartment was perfect for two! It is just the cutest little thing. Clean, cozy and very affordable! Makes you feel right at home. I would suggest reading through the binder they've put together which contains tons of info on 'things to do'...very informative :) Jess' house is in the perfect spot, close to Denver, 10 min away from down town but still so quaint and quiet. You'll be missing out if you choose to stay anywhere else! We loved this spot and will definitely book with Jess next time! ***** recommendation!!

Jess's apartment was perfect for our trip to the Denver area. It was super clean, had everything we needed including the extras like coffee, hairdryer, etc. The bed was really comfortable, I haven't slept that good in a long time. We appreciated the private entrance and privacy in general but Jess was available if we needed. My dog appreciated the fenced yard area and nice neighborhood for walking. There are many interesting restaurants close by. All in all a perfect location and a great apartment!

Jess and Brian are fantastic hosts that let you have your space but are easy to contact and respond quickly. The apartment is a great size, well equipped and with a spunky style that I dug. The kitchen, although small-ish has everything you need - I was on the Whole30 during this time and cook A LOT with relative ease. We stayed here for a month with our pup and enjoyed our time (our pup enjoyed the yard area). Great location - we both enrolled in gyms/yoga within walking distance. Whole Foods and Sprouts not far (by car) and a king Sooper even closer. Very safe neighborhood - I would be comfortable staying her as a single woman.

Cozy tiny little ADU. Private entrance with driveway parking is very nice. Very comfortable bed and nice sized walk-in closet. Kitchen is adequate for minor cooking. Bathroom is the smallest you have ever seen but still functional. Living area is spacious with lots of colorful decor. Neighborhood feels very safe and is pretty quiet. Hosts were very helpful and responsive.

Great place to stay just outside Denver! Easy to get around, safe neighborhood, quiet and secure. If you are traveling with a pet, the yard is fenced and the neighborhood is walkable. The unit is spotless and the decor bright and inviting. Everything you need is provided! Jess and his family respect your privacy and give lots of information about where to eat, visit, and shop. I enjoyed my stay immensely!

Convenient area, in the middle of everything. It is a lovely, quaint guest house that was very comfortable to stay in, especially for 8 days. So easy to communicate with both Jess and her husband, Bryan. Jess gave great recommendations for things to do with a 4-year old (with the help of her mother lol). It was an overall incredible first time airbnb experience. Thank you both so much.

We live in Colorado and travel and often as we can. We love to laugh, play, sleep, and eat -- all on a budget if possible! We are happy to share our mother-in-law apartment with people who enjoy our comfy, eclectic space.
