1 Bed/1 Bath condo close to light rail and I-25. Many amenities within 1 mile.
Shawna is originally from Canada and Corey grew up south of Denver. We met in graduate school in Oregon and after living together in a small studio apartment in Santa Barbara, we decided to move closer to family in Colorado. Our goal in searching for our primary residence in 2008 was to find a condo in a really walkable neighborhood close to light rail. We love small space, urban living; snowboarding & scuba diving; transit; and spending time on our patio.

What makes this Condo unique
We had always coveted the patio on this property, which is north-facing and nicely landscaped, which makes it a lovely cool place for a cup of coffee or glass of wine. It overlooks the central common green-space and is just steps from the clubhouse and indoor swimming pool. We've designed The Guest House to be a comfortable home away from home that we'd be happy to stay in ourselves. With new furnishings from IKEA, full-sized Kenmore washer & dryer and a well-appointed kitchen with staple pantry items, The Guest House is the perfect accommodations for those in Denver for vacation, business or relocation. Our experience living in smaller spaces has taught us how to make it feel more spacious; we think you'll come to find that you have all the room you need. We are a pet-friendly and welcome guests with one small well-behaved pet (dog or cat), for an additional cost. Please see our pet policy for more details.

So happy with this place!
If I could rent again here, I would. Wonderful place!!
Perfect spot for travel nurses!
Great location! Nice nerighborhood and close to everything!
This was a nice option for housing on my clinical rotation for school. Would be very spacious for 2 people even though it was just myself. Very well furnished with all the necessities. Nice mattress, laundry machines, tv with cable, and newly updated sinks and counters. The only consideration I would mention is if you are a light sleeper, the unit above had very creaky floorboards and a tenant who walked around a lot in the evenings, but for me using earplugs mostly did the trick. Looks like they are updating the siding on most of the older units so I would guess the exterior will look much nicer possibly in time for the next guest. Convenient location to I-25 and Shawna the property manager was great to work with as well. Overall would recommend
Clean and close to the city
The guest house was very nice and clean. The owners responded very quickly and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location was perfect, close to the city. If I find myself back in Denver I will definitely rent this again!
Centrally located and condo had all you need
Finding a place that allowed pets was a challenge for us. This unit was pet friendly and the owner was great to work with! She was quick to respond to messages and did all they could to make sure this was as smooth a transition as possible. The condo itself is on the ground level which was a huge plus for us since our dog is older and does not do stairs all that well. It also made it easy to move our stuff into the unit. The condo had all the essentials you would need to get by for a month or so. It is also a couple blocks off I-25 which made it easy to get around the city. Food and grocery within walking distance. Overall, the condo is a great option for someone in Denver for the short-term. The only caution and reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the parking lot is on a busy street and might have a few too many eyes on it if you catch my drift...I would make sure not to keep anything of value in the vehicle as we had a couple hiccups with the parking lot. Besides that, there was ample parking and a very short walk from the parking lot to the condo.
Pleasant place, great location
We were pretty pleased with our visit; we needed to find someplace to stay while work was being done on our home and this place met our needs really well, especially with a dog and a cat.
The only downside I can think of is the outside of the buildings; some of them are in sad need of repair, so the first impression was a little odd.
Don't let that fool you, though -- the condo itself was warm and inviting, and very comfortable. There's plenty of space for two, and the big wall of sliding glass doors makes it feel even larger. The cupboards are well stocked with all the supplies you need for an extended stay. I had not slept on a mattress like the one used here, but I I liked it enough that I may go replace my mattress at home -- very comfy.
The big plus was convenience -- there are a bunch of good places to eat within a five minute walk, from Starbucks to excellent BBQ at Jim'n'Nicks to burgers and sandwiches, to the amazingly good Bagel Deli. Add to that the grocery store two blocks away, and easy access to the freeway, and the location really just can't be beat.
Thanks for letting us stay! We wish we could have stayed longer!
Thank you for such a lovely review! We very much enjoyed having you stay with us and we echo your sentiments about the exterior of the buildings. They definitely conceal some hidden gems.
