About Darlene

Gregg and I enjoy traveling and seeing new places in the USA and abroad. We're happy to be able to open our home to you while you visit beautiful Colorado. We're not new at caring for guests and managing residences. Over the years it has been our pleasure to host overnight guests, rent out rooms in our home, and currently we own and manage two short-term vacation rental homes and one long-term rental house in Colorado Springs. We would be honored to have you stay in one of our homes!

Why Darlene chose Northeast Colorado Springs

This property has incredible Pikes Peak views and is so convenient to anywhere in the city, just off of Academy Blvd, it is so easy to get to wherever you need to be. It is on a quiet neighborhood street in a safe community.

Looking for a larger house or a second house to rent for your large group? We've recently acquired a second short-term rental house near the North Gate entrance of the Air Force Academy; see the details of that property at HomeAway #4772552.

What makes this house unique

The main living area of this house was completely gutted and remodeled in 2016. You'll want to rent this house just to lay eyes on the master crafted custom-designed knotty alder kitchen cabinets, for starters . . . also newly built in 2016 is the private balcony off of the master bedroom and renovations throughout, such as the rustic stone gas fireplace downstairs.

Epic Place with Awesome view

It was so much more than I expected. Darlene definitely has put a lot of time to make sure that this place is homey and comfortable for everyone. She is the best host and the sweetest soul. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for the perfect getaway.

Excellent location-Great Home-Best Value

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family, good separation for the young adults downstairs and parents upstairs but still quality family time in open kitchen and large patio. True 3 bdrm & 3 bath, everything as advertised. Close to everything and easy on/off I-25. Owners thought of everything and more, exceeded our expectations. Set the stage for a great USAFA Parents Weekend and we highly recommend this wonderful home. Thanks for the hospitality!

Beautiful Home with a Fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews pretty much sums it up! We were a pretty large group! 3 couples, 2 singles and 3 babies. Darlene was fantastic to work with and extremely accommodating. She would get back to me in a very short amount of time answering all my questions. My grown children and their spouses were VERY impressed with the home. What a great view of the mountains from the living room and kitchen windows! Beautiful! Pikes Peak is right there!

We arrived to a spotless home with special touches throughout. A delicious plate of fresh snicker doodle cookies (they didn't last long!) and coffee ready to go. The bathrooms, all 3 of them, so clean with plush towels. The beds were extremely comfortable and the remodeled kitchen beautiful, meeting all our needs, spices, plenty of dishes, and a dishwasher so quiet you had to check to make sure it was indeed running. The private back yard had a wonderful covered area with 2 tables and chairs as well as some very comfortable recliners and a brand new gas grill. What more could we ask for? Darlene's welcome book came in very handy as we had to make use of an urgent care for our 3 year old. A list of hospitals, close by, with addresses and distance was right in the book. We chose the closest, were a bit nervous about the size, pretty small, but was pleasantly surprised by the care and expertise of this facility. Thank you Darlene for including that info.

If you plan a trip to the Springs, I highly recommend this home. It was definately a home away from home. Thank you Darlene, for making our stay so nice!

This house is beautiful!! It had all the amenities we needed and is located on a quiet hill with a spectacular view of Pikes Peak. The house accommodated six adults easily with three bathrooms and very comfortable beds. Darlene was wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this rental if you are traveling to Colorado Springs!

A Great Week In Colorado Springs

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six arrived on 7/3/17. Darlene was very easy to work with and texted me when the house was ready for arrival. We were greeted with a plate of cookies on the counter. We have stayed in condos and homes before on vacation and they normally are not what you expect from the pictures, but this home was as described. Very clean and nicely decorated. Very close to Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods and other attractions. We would definitely stay here again!! Thanks, Darlene for everything.

Very nice and comfortable and good location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for three nights and we had everything we could need. The house is updated and very clean. When we arrived there were chocolate cookies waiting for us which was a big hit with the kids ( and adults)! The house is very child friendly with toys and books and there even was a pack and play for our youngest to sleep in. The house is in a good location to see all of the surrounding sights near Colorado Springs. We definitely recommend staying here!
