A quaint Victorian home with apt #4 decorated mid century style. Comes with the comforts of home featuring a well equipped kitchen. If you're looking for something unique, cozy, and close to downtown, then apt #4 is the place for you.

The space

Your home away from home is a totally private apartment. Off street parking is available. There is an entrance from outside directly into the apartment. No need to worry about getting to the supermarket right away; your first morning breakfast snack is provided. The kitchen is equipped with popular spices, a coffee maker, French press, toaster, blender, gas stove, microwave, and a full size fridge.
There is an iron and board.
I can set up a Graco Play n Pack on request but this is not a toddler friendly apartment.
The restroom comes with all the soaps you need to freshen up: shampoo, body wash, conditioner, hand soap, towels and blow dryer.
The living room comes with a queen size sofa bed for two guests. There is also a DVD player with a few movies. There are local channels to watch on TV but no cable or satellite networks.
High speed Internet is provided to make your stay more convenient. The code is on the fridge.
There is a coin laundry available on the lower level of the house. The backdoor door located at the back of the kitchen leads you to the laundry room, also known as "The Dungeon." Please do not lock the laundry room door from the inside that leads to the outside on the other side of the house.
There is also a picnic table on the back patio for all guests to use.

A welcome letter will be sent to you a few days before your arrival with access information. I give you the code to enter the apartment at that time. No need to worry about meeting up with me because you do not need a key, it is actually very convenient.

Guests will have no trouble communicating with me through texting or a phone call. I love hosting and love making life easy for visitors.
I live about 30 minutes away from the apartment but am available and there to help if needed.

The house is located in an established, quiet neighborhood and is located just minutes from downtown Colorado Springs. There is also a city park in walking distance, a bike trail, and Fifty-Fifty Coffee House.

You can hop on the city bus just two blocks away, walk downtown, or just take your car.

Guest access

Entire apartment, Laundry room, private parking, and back patio is available for your use.

Other things to note

This is an entire apartment for rent. The house was converted from a one family home to 4 apartments many, many years ago in the 1950's. It has many characteristics of an older home so you will hear other people walking around from time to time above you, I do tell the guest above to be aware of this and be kind.

I have no cleaning fee so guests are asked to clean up the kitchen and leave as found when you arrived, to help me out a bit.
There is no smoking in the apartment, not even outside on the premises. Even though Marijuana is legal in the state of Colorado there is no Marijuana allowed on the property. Colorado State Law sites that each homeowner has this right to make that decision. Hate to say this but if you are coming to my place to use marijuana you will be asked to leave, Airbnb will not give a refund if you break this rule.
No pets,
No hair coloring allowed.
Ladies please have mercy on me; use make up remover wipes and not body and hand towels to remove make up. The stains are tough to remove. Also, hiking on red rocks is nice, but stained towels aren't. A dark towel is supplied if you need it.
No partying. No candles. The pillow shams are decorative so please do not to sleep on them
I know I'm guilty of saying rules are made to be broken but not on Airbnb. Thanks a bunch for following these rules.

Wonderful place to stay for two people! Comfortable, beautiful, well-maintained and walkable to downtown. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Shelley's place is perfect for those of us that ABnB a lot: she is extremely helpful, but also understands your space... everything is clean, yet she allows you to clean up after yourself to keep away from a cleaning cost... its quiet, yet close to everything. The place is perfect, and Shelley was an incredible hostess!

Shelley User Profile

I have lived in Colorado for most of my life and can't imagine ever moving away. However, when it comes to travel, there is always an air of excitement in my house. We discovered Airbnb a couple of years ago when taking our first trip to Europe. We have met so many wonderful people through our travels and owe it to my sweet exchange student from Sweden. I love hosting in my own home, so helping any of my guests at the the Arcadia House by Downtown will be a delight. I love my husband of 31 years, my two sons, and my lovely and smart daughter-in law. I have two wonderful puppies that are getting real big now; just love 'em, they are the coolest.
Photography is a passion of mine so you will never see me travel without my Nikon. I love good food, uplifting conversation, beautiful works of art, sunsets, studying history, deep bible study, and I can put together a pretty amazing digital photo book.
My philosophy is " Love your neighbor as yourself"
