About owner/property manager

I am excited to share this property with you. Recently renovated, our 1929 Mapleton Hill stucco bungalow is the cozy alternative to nearby downtown hotels. We will always do our best to make your stay pleasant in all ways. I am a longtime local resident who came here to CU Law School, never left and never lost the sense that Boulder, and especially this west Boulder neighborhood, is just a spectacular place to be. We look forward to sharing this special neighborhood and making your visit memorable. When you need to reach an owner/manager, please call Steve at 303-579-1253.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Steve:

Everything was great and we had an excellent stay at your fantastic bungalow -- it was comfy and nicely designed with all the amenities we were looking for.

We can't wait to come back to Boulder, hopefully to live, but if not, we will definitely stay here again on future trips and recommend it to our family and friends.

Thanks again!

Great Location Not So Great Condition

  • 2 of 5

The location and neighbor hood were great, especially with the trees and leaves changing. I was disappointed in the overall upkeep and condition of the unit. The mattress was stained and had debree on it, the stove and burners and burner pans were rusted, dirty and unusable to me. Additionally, when I moved in there was dirt, food in the drawers, cabinets and around the stove, the dishwasher was stained and wasn't clean. I sent the owner pictures and all my concerns. I hired a pest control company to evaluate the mattress and bed and although no bugs were found, they confirmed the unit was filthy. The owner brought someone in to clean, which I thought would have been done before a tenant moved in. I reported this to Boulder County Landlord Tenant website. I have requested compensation and a refund which he agreed to but have yet to receive.

Charming studio unit in an historic Boulder neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Everything about my booking and stay was easy. Communication was prompt and helpful. Arrival and check-out information was concise and easy to follow.

The unit is very comfortable for one person, and for a one month stay there was very little lacking to keep me happy and comfortable. Everything in the unit worked well, and the layout is great (exactly as shown in the photos). The outdoor patio area is spacious and adds to the overall comfort and ambiance. A small band practices nearly every Tuesday evening across the street, and I enjoyed their music while sitting outside.

The walk to Pearl Street is easy and takes 10-15 minutes depending on your speed and enjoyment viewing the homes and gardens in the neighborhood. Access to hiking trails is even closer - just 1.5 blocks and you can be heading up the hills.

Definitely recommend a stay here.

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was adorable and had all the space my husband and I needed for our stay. Steve the owner was prompt and courteous with all his replies and his assistant Maureen gave us tons of great tips on things to do in Boulder. We loved Nederland Maureen! We will be back.

We loved staying at this property. Amazing use of this modestly-sized bungalow. We spent hours upon hours on the lovely little patio. It was everything we needed for our stay in Boulder. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
