    Convenient for our needs, however, the bedding was not comfortable. Mattresses were soft and sheets were synthetic feeling. Host was very easy to communicate with and responsive to fixing an identified repair. Home was equipped and otherwise comfortable.

    The property is as stated and was easy to find. Close to UCHealth Denver main campus, and many good restaurants close for take out. House was clean and well stocked to manage our stay. William was very easy to access and answered our questions. We were able to extend our stay easily when weather prevented us from leaving as planned. So thankful for that accommodation!! We will stay again.

    House was nice area was quiet. Would recommend it to family and friends on our next visit. Pretty close to downtown and a few restaurants can tell it’s on the rough side of town once you travel a few blocks but the block itself was nice. Friendly neighbors greeted us upon arrival as well as check out.

    This house was absolutely fine. After reading previous reviews I was a little concerned with the condition of the property but I can now say that our visit was great. We had 4 people. 1 married couple and 2 other friends, so having the 3 bedrooms was perfect. The 2 bathrooms made it easy to share space. The house was clean and tidy and had everything we needed for our 3 day stay. No issues at all and the location was perfect for our needs. Having a driveway and a garage to use was also a big bonus as we didn't have to worry about parking or park on the street. Great little 3 bedroom, 2 bath, with another area for kids to sleep and off street parking. We would stay here again.

    Happy with stay

    House was exactly as described. At one point, we had 6 adults present, and we didn’t fall on top of each other. Kitchen was well-stocked and oven worked great. Heater worked as expected. Dishwasher didn’t do a very good job getting dishes clean, so some had to be re-washed. But that didn’t impact our enjoyment of the time we had in Denver.

    Tried to email property owners twice. No response. The Air Conditioner controller didn't have batteries. So no air. Couldn't get out of the back screen door. It was locked and couldn't figure out how to open. We were forced to put the trash in the car and take away to dispose of. Didn't know where to put it. Otherwise the home was just fine.

    This property is listed as having air conditioning, IT DOES NOT. It has what is listed in the info book at the home as an air cooler. Due to the extreme humidity in the house from the air cooler all of the inside doors to bedrooms and bathrooms do not open or close correctly. They all rub the frames and are a struggle to open if you use enough force to get them closed. The air cooler only provides air to the upper floor, no air movement reaches the lower level. Would not stay here again if in the Denver area.

    Property was nice and big enough, My problem was the owner said we could stay till 3:00 pm and at 11:00 the maid showed up. I told her the owner said we could stay till 3 she called him and he called me and basically kicked us out. We had 6 people plus luggage and only had one car at the time. I had to load up my car and we had to call a uber and get a hotel for a few hours till our flight time. He said he had a rental the next day. We were leaving at 3 That is still plenty of time to clean the place and get it ready. I will not be staying here again.

    House smelled and looked like no one had used it in a while. The rails to both stair cases were loose and need to be fixed. The floors were dirty. There was a chicken leg in one of the couches. Beer bottle tops and trash under the squeaky bed The bed in the upstairs bedroom with the tiger on the bed needs to be fixed it was so loud the head board is loose and Anytime I would move it would creak and move back and forth.The lights didn't all work either. The house was either to hot or to cold no middle temp. I'm sure the weather doesn't help much but you would figure with the weather then air conditioning would be a little better. The space was what I needed but the house wasn't as clean or fancy as the pictures make it look. Not enough toilet paper. The soap and shampoo were half used. I guess I was expecting a little more like a hotel. The owner did respond to my one and only request to check in 2 hours before with no problems. Never used this service now I know what to look out for. The neighborhood is ok not the best part of town. It was my first time in this area now I know what to look for. It was close to a lot of kid friendly activities and close to the highway and airport. The space was great for 9 people but not a big enough room to gather all at the same time. Small living room.

    An agreeable place to stay. Very welcoming, safe and quiete.

    This rental was everything it was promised to be! It is centrally located to lots of places in the Denver area, with easy access to I-225. The unit was clean and comfortable and well kept. It was a great place to stay while in town for a family wedding! Apart from a couple minor issues, it was absolutely ideal. The owner was quickly responsive when we reached out to him. We would readily stay there again.

    No central a/c in July

    Home was spacious and clean and while not in the safest appearing neighborhood we had no issues while we were there. We rented this property in mid July when the temps were above 90-95 degrees every day. The home was listed to have a/c. The a/c provided in the property consisted of 2 portable a/c units. The home is a 3 level home with 4 different sleeping areas (3 bedrooms and the areas with bunks/futon), plus living/dining areas. Needless to say it was unbearably hot in any room that didn't have one of the 2 portable a/c units in it with the door closed to keep the cold air in the room. There were lots of fans provided also but without the a/c the fans just circulate the hot air. A note left in the home mentioned when both a/c units are plugged in the breakers may trip and how to flip them. We experienced breakers flipping almost constantly the last 2 days of our stay and were unable to wash towels in the washing machine with any fans at all plugged in downstairs (the breaker would constantly flip). Our main issue with the property was the inability to achieve a tolerable temperature and the breakers flipping constantly while the washer was in use. I understand temps were unseasonably warm but I expected central a/c or at least strong window units spread throughout the home when booking a property listed as having a/c. I'm sure staying in the property when a/c isn't necessary would be more enjoyable. Parking was easily accessible, check in and check out were smooth.

    I have to say that the owners of this house were very accommodating. On our week stay for a softball tournament, Denver encountered record 100+ heat. This house, did not have air conditioning as we assumed. The owner went out of his way to bring in 2 portable window air conditioners the very next day which greatly improved our stay. I only give this a 4 and not a 5 because the neighbors on the left side facing had a domestic dispute one day which spilled outside to where our kids could hear. Not the owners fault. The value was perfect as we were looking for motels in the area for this very large tournament week and they were charging more than us getting a house and 2.5 families to share.

    I am a little disappointed, 2 of the rooms were VERY DIRTY, we rented this house to occupy all the rooms, and only occupied 2, we had to pile up in those 2 rooms, because there were dead animals under the beds and in one bed when we were leaving There was a dead fly in the blanket to bed and when we spoke to send someone to clean, they only said that they could not send anyone, because they only went when people vacated the houses and that the person who had cleaned had done wrong his job ... if at least they had gone to clean it would have given him 5 stars
