A bit of a Surprise!
I've never spent any time in Denver before, but was coming out with my wife and adult kids for a family wedding weekend. I was warned by a local resident (after I'd booked this unit) to "beware of the Five Points area". The website still looked nice and I was feeling adventurous, so we stuck with the booking. Steven was most accommodating before we got there, even agreeing to allow us an early check-in, since the unit was already going to be cleaned and empty. When we drove up, the neighborhood seemed "ok" -- it was pretty clear that it had been "rought" at one time, but had improved substantially -- lots of lovely solid houses that had been updated and the yards were either simple and clean, or beautifully landscaped. The outside of is house was more in the "simple" vein, although it the front patio with table and chairs and BBQ grill looked like a nice place to sppend some evenings. When we opened the door, the real work was the pleasant surprise! High ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors (bamboo?), a large comfortable set of couches and ottoman, and an open-concept into the nicely remodeled kitchen and dining area. The deep terra-cotta wall color was warm and inviting. The exposed beamwork on the ceiling pulled the whole vision together -- really comfortable, with a degree of sophistication. The two upstairs bedrooms were huge, and could have actually used a bit more furniture just to fill-in the space. The "gem" up here was the bathroom with an immense tile shower with two high-end shower heads and plenty of room for cleaning-up with a partner! The third bedroom and second bathroom were on the main floor, behind the kitchen and on the toward the fenced parking area in back of the house (accessible from the alley). The lot sizes here are a little tight and I was concerned about next-door-neighbor noise, but it proved not to be an issue. I would recommend this property to anyone with a group large enough to justify the space, and appreciate Steven's efforts in restoring this space and making it available to visitors!
