The kitchen is fully equipped for those that prefer to eat in and there is plenty of storage making this a great option for longer term stays. Now with microwave and TV!

Per Denver City and County Ordinance as of 1/1/2017, hosts are required to collect a 10.75% Lodgers Tax on all stays under 30 days. Booking is a two step process. After your reservation is accepted, you will receive an email from the Resolution Center with a request for the Lodgers Tax for your reservation. You must accept this charge within 24 hours of booking (or immediately for same day Instant Bookings), or your reservation may be cancelled, as hosts are required to collect it. Your booking will show a 4% tax that is collected directly for the State of Colorado, but unfortunately, the City/County of Denver has not integrated their Lodgers Tax into reservation process, thus creating this additional step. Feel free to search "Short Term Lodgers Tax Denver" to verify this is a legitimate fee if you have any questions.

I expect guests to act in a respectful and courteous manner, and keep the space tidy. Quiet hours are between 10 PM and 6 AM.
Marijuana may be smoked inside but cigarettes can only be smoked outside.

We really enjoyed staying at Celia's place. The apartment had everything we needed, good location and free parking outside the door. We appreciated the fridge essentials and the warm welcome by G and Jim who quickly got us orientated and gave us very helpful advice on things to do and restaurant recommendations. Sadly we were only in Denver for 2 nights but hope to make a longer return trip in the future. Thank G and Jim.

Really smooth check-in and the location was great. It was in a quiet location but also really close to the city which was perfect. Celia helped us out with anything we needed, and more. Highly recommend!

Very conveniently located and clean and comfortable flat. Celia was available if needed and it was easy to get around. We used buses and walked most places. The art gallery and botanical gardens were highlights.

We are lucky to professionally host many properties in the Capitol Hill/Uptown/City Park/Wash Park areas. We personally greet each guest, no matter the time of day or night.
Gretchen is an adopted Colorado native of 20 years - 12 years in Vail and 8 fabulous years living in Capitol Hill in Denver. Jim was born in Denver and his entire family lives here. We LOVE this city and this state - it has so much to offer visitors and residents. The culture, diversity, performing arts and culinary scene are just a few of the things that make us smile here every day.
We truly enjoy helping people connect to the best of the best local gems, whether it's one of our hidden comedy venues or to the newest and most innovative restaurants. Our food truck scene is out of this world, we have the most amazing bands locally and headliners that come from across the country and around the world to perform here.
Jim has an unbelievable wealth of knowledge of Colorado microbrews and can be booked to guide you through some of the best local craft breweries, tailored to your specific taste. Budtenders can be booked for an informative, fun and unique dispensary tour, to discover the truth behind the cannabis lifestyle in Denver. Gretchen can take you for a progressive happy hour, for "single bite" bests at some Denver's best restaurants off the beaten path.
Looking for comedy, spend an evening with both of us at hidden venue laughing with some of Denver's best local comics.
We are blessed to enjoy a great rapport with our guests and respect their privacy. Please communicate any special needs or concerns about your trip. It's our pleasure to be of service.
Please check out our other listings if your dates don't coincide with what you see available on the calendar. And feel free to contact us if you don't find availability when you need it, we might be able to help you find another Airbnb listing that works for your needs.
On occasion, Gretchen can be of assistance in helping those who are relocating to the area, whether you are looking to rent or buy, contact me with your specifics and I'll see what I can do to help.
