The hosts are incredibly charming, friendly, and welcoming. You feel comfortable very quickly, they leave space in the fridge, and let you know where to find anything you'll need. Parking is also very easy. They live on a quiet family street. The bed and room itself are very comfortable, and the bathroom is well appointed, clean and conveniently located.

Holly and Akash are great host. I was concerned initially about sharing living space but they both made me feel extremely comfortable and provided me the space that I needed. They were very accommodating making me feel welcome in their home. Their pets are playful and friendly! Great home. Outstanding hosts!

My stay at Holly's place was truly amazing. I had a wonderful time. The house, bath and the room were great. The room was even better than I expected. The location had good restaurants and stores nearby. Holly was an excellent host who gave me great suggestions and tips on exploring Denver-Boulder. She communicates effectively and timely. I would highly recommend this place!

Holly is a very friendly and generous host. Communication was very good and check-in was excellent. The bathroom and shower are excellent! I must have misread the TV listing because I could not get live TV -- couldn't watch the news. The WiFi was sporadic; it may be time for a new modem/router. I couldn't find cushions for the backyard/deck chairs so I was unable to use them. Primary issue for me was the cat odor in the bedroom; once that is eliminated, it will be a great place.

Response from Holly:
Michael, thanks for all of your suggestions! I apologize for the cat odor coming from my room, even though it was emptied and cleaned before I left, it sounds like my cat sitter did not clean the litter box during your 9 night stay. I'll consider getting cushions for the outdoor chairs, although I've never used cushions on those chairs myself. And lastly, per your suggestion, I've updated the listing to show that I don't have live television but do have a TV where people can hook up their own devices or use my Netflix account. I hope your time with your family was wonderful :) Holly

Holly's place was great! I was supposed to stay at another place, but it fell through the day before I was supposed to arrive. Holly was helpful and saved the day! The dogs, Ruby and Charlie, were so nice and were eager to make new friends. I've only done Airbnb a few times, but Holly was by far the best host I've had.

Thanks Justin! I'm sorry our schedules didn't line up better for me to show you anything in the area :) Don't hesitate to reach out again if you need a place to stay.

Holly was a great host. After our long drive, we couldn't have found a better place to stay. We had a great time, and the room was perfect for what we needed. It was centrally located around many restaurants and only a short drive to Downtown Denver. We would definitely try to stay again if we decide to come back to Colorado.

I am kind of a work-a-holic, but I really enjoy my off-work time. Much of my that time is spent riding my bicycle, rock climbing, attending meetups (whether I am hosting, or just hanging out with some good friends), and activities with my dog, Ruby.

I have been in my home now for almost 5 years, and love to meet new people and travelers. I love guests from around the world, especially guests who love cats/dogs.

If you stay as my guest, I warn you that I do offer (if you don't have other plans) for you to come along with me to my meetups/happy-hours, and rock climbing!

When I am home, I tend to keep to myself mostly, but I can have a good conversation if I'm not "on my way to my next thing", so please feel free to chat. That in mind, sometimes I'm out so much that I don't ever see you, and sometimes I'm home every night of the week.
