This locked-off basement apartment with private entry has a flagstone patio that looks over Four Mile Canyon Creek open space. Its situated in North Boulder, just minutes to downtown and CU by car or bike. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, this is the place for you. There are 2 routers and a Verizon signal booster for improved WiFi connectivity.

The space

This apartment is attached to a residential home. You have your own private patio and entrance. It boasts 9 ft ceilings, yet it is cozy at 650 sq ft. Including one queen bed it accommodates 2 people. There is a ceiling fan and two large screened windows that can be adjusted to keep the unit cool on all but the hottest days. There is an AC unit as well that turns on above 77 degrees F. The nights in Boulder usually drop into the 60's even during the hottest months. The efficiency kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, 2 burner stove, toaster oven, microwave, electric kettle, and coffee maker. It has all the kitchenware you need to make any meal or heat up leftovers from a day on the town.

Also you have easy access to Boulder's extensive network of biking trails to take you to downtown Boulder, Pearl Street, the plethora of local microbreweries, or to the Valmont City park where you can play frisbee golf or practice your mountain biking skills. This retreat is also close to the start of the Bolder Boulder, the Boulder reservoir, and quaint shops of North Boulder.

Guest access

There is a flagstone patio and walkway that is for your private use. The creek bed, which the unit overlooks, is part of the City of Boulder openspace program (which means you can explore as much as you'd like!).

Enjoyed my stay. Great location, very quiet neighborhood. No hassle check in or check out. Nicely and comfortably furnished. Simplicity. Wish the bed was a little more comfortable. Nice size bathroom. Would highly recommend.

Great location, quiet, private garden apartment. We stayed here when we hiked at RMNP and Chautauqua Park, and it was the perfect home base!

Wonderful accommodations, located in a quiet neighborhood that's still close enough to shopping centers/grocery stores to be convenient. The perfect place to relax, with great WiFi speed and a gorgeous Samsung HDTV indoors and a beautiful creekside path right out the back door.

Love this place! It had everything we needed to relax comfortably and cook our meals, we tried to not eat out as much and had no issues. Even though this place is technically a basement they did a great job of separating it off so you wouldn't even notice, it's very private with a separate entrance on the backside of the house. We didn't hear any noise from upstairs but I believe the home owner was out of town all week. It's in a very nice, quiet neighborhood with beautiful scenery right outside the door. We even had some rain so we got to see the creek fill up a little. We stayed in town for almost a week and had no car so we used uber and lyft to get a around very easily, we even walked to the closest store and brunch place which was about .6 miles away. We took lyft to Chautauqua Park twice to do some hiking, it was super easy and lyft has a code online to get $1.25 off each time you take it to or from the park! We also rented bikes from a place downtown for 2 days which was awesome, definitely recommend doing that so you can take advantage of all the bike trails, there are tons. So if you are coming to relax and explore Boulder this is the perfect place!!
