Perks for the Parents

This lovely family home in historic Whittier, one of Boulder’s most enchanting and desirable neighborhoods, is just a few blocks from awesome parks, pools, hiking and biking trails, and all the great shops and cafés of Pearl Street. Lovingly restored and expanded, it is all set up for a family to enjoy. Whole Foods, Target, and the 29th Street Mall are minutes away by bike or car, and Richard Freeman's famed yoga workshop is only 3 blocks from the house. The charming neighborhood offers a great taste of Boulder living, with bike rental stores nearby so you can explore like a local too.

Why Kids Love it

The house was rebuilt with kids in mind, as they will have plenty of space to play in, whether it's in the expansive yard, spacious bedrooms, or the open-plan basement. The latter is a great place to relax, away from the others if needed. Kids love to eat and color at the adjustable table in the kitchen with seating for 4. The yard boasts a full-lot, unique to the neighborhood, providing plenty of space to run and play together. Kids especially enjoy the tree house, Little Tikes double slide play structure and sparking clean hot tub. Inside the house, a few toys, coloring supplies and books are provided for younger guests, including an art corner and board games.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. Weekly and reduced occupancy discounts are available. Kids should be supervised around the hot tub and tree house at all times. The charcoal grill is not for guest use - the hosts provide a gas grill on the lower patio. No smoking or candle burning permitted on the property. The fireplace may be extremely hot, even hours after use - please use the safety gate provided. A Sonos system allows you to listen to music throughout the house. The home is walking distance of some of Boulder's best venues for shopping, eating and drinking: a 10-minute stroll will take you to fantastic coffee shops, award-winning restaurants, yoga studios, pizzerias, vegetarian restaurants, farm-to-table specialists, brunch venues, music venues and more. The owners have a dog, who will be away during your stay. Maximum occupancy is 6, due to Boulder regulations.

About the Location

The house is in the historic neighborhood of Whittier, just blocks from the central Pearl Street Commercial and Arts District. It is under a mile from downtown Boulder, with great cafés and shops, as well as hiking and biking trails, just blocks away. Larger stores such as Whole Foods and Target are conveniently minutes away. The neighborhood is quiet and serene, with tall trees, lovely gardens and restored homes. The house is just steps from a bus stop connecting the neighborhood to downtown and 29th Street Mall. The hosts recommend biking or walking as a great, local way to see the city and get around. B Cycle rents bikes from a self-service station 3 blocks away, while Full Cycle, nearby at 18th and Pearl, has mountain bikes.

Style Notes

Modern family. The home reflects the owner's love of international travel and antiques, and includes many treasured decor items from abroad, timeless Persian rugs, and an ornate Victorian fireplace. Rebuilt with kids in mind, there is plenty of space for kids to play inside and out, and an array of perks that make life easier for parents. The home features high-end appliances, modern yet period-style fixtures, and gorgeous, radiant heat wood floors. The spa-inspired master bathroom features wall-to-wall Carrara marble, a Victoria & Albert claw foot tub, open marble shower, and dual granite topped sinks. We love the pretty exterior, the colorful kids bedrooms and the generous garden.

After seeing the world throughout my 20's and early 30's, I felt drawn to return to my native Colorado, and thus made beautiful Boulder my permanent home. Though my family and I love our hometown, we also have a passion for travel. In 2013, with our two young kids in tow, we rambled throughout SE Asia for 10 months. We spent summer 2015 and spring 2016 on Maui. We loved our time in Paris, Sardinia and Copenhagen during summer 2016. St. John, Maui and O'ahu were fabulous in 2017. We'll ring in 2018 in Hong Kong followed by another 3 month stint in SE Asia. While we travel, we often rent our house to other like-minded families. They fully enjoy our home, and we are confident you will too. During our fabulous journeys, we meet many amazing people who define what it means to be truly gracious, open hearted hosts. We are inspired by their generosity and hope to provide the same to you. If you'd like to learn more about us and our SE Asian travels, feel free to check out my blog on Wordpress: Away We Go Bye Bye.

Boulder, Colorado

Gateway to the Rocky Mountains

At the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills, Boulder is frequently ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States for its consistently sunny weather, fantastic outdoor recreational opportunities, environmentally conscious residents, and abundance of public parks and green spaces. Head downtown to the Pearl Street pedestrian mall to watch street performers, ride the free Tebo train for children, or cool off in the Pop Jet Fountain. When the snow begins to fall, head to nearby Eldora Mountain Resort or take a day trip to Vail or Breckenridge for world-class skiing and snowboarding.
