A beautifully renovated townhouse in a historic building. In a great quiet neighborhood, but close to downtown.
My condo is one of 10 townhouses in a beautiful brick building built in 1904. I bought it in 2008 and have fully renovated it myself. There is a basement with storage and laundry; the 1st floor has an open floor-plan with kitchen and living room. There are two bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs.
I think of my condo as a cozy oasis in the heart of the city. Since I did the renovation myself, I put a lot of effort into making it as nice as possible, and I like to keep everything super-clean. I have an eclectic collection of books in the living room and guest room that my guests often like to check out. The artwork is a mix of cool stuff from different places, as well as canvas-printed photos that I took myself. I make an effort to make people feel at home.
You will have your own room, with a very comfortable queen size futon, and access to the bathroom with soaking tub. There is also a 1/2 bath downstairs. You will have full access to the kitchen, and can help yourself to any extras for cooking such as spices, sauces, etc. You'll be free to use the washer/dryer located in the basement. You can use the entertainment center including tv, stereo, and dvd, as well as a modest dvd collection. I don't have cable TV, just an HD antenna which picks up a few local selections, but most people are not here to watch TV! Breakfast will be self-serve; I try to keep an adequate selection of juices, yogurt, cereal, fruit, and coffee or tea which you will be welcome to help yourself to.
Interaction with guests
I am out at work during weekdays, and on weekends I'm often outside or in the mountains, but whenever I can, I enjoy chatting with guests and helping with suggestions on places to visit.

No smoking in the house. Please clean up after yourself in the kitchen and bathroom. Please try to be mindful of noise, as this is townhome with shared walls. Please don't bring visitors home- my place is a perfect cozy and quiet homebase, but not a party-pad!

I grew up next to beautiful Lake Champlain in Vermont, and then lived in New Orleans for 10 years before moving to Denver in 2007. I love the city, and my neighborhood, and being close to the adventure playground of the Rockies. I've done a decent amount of traveling and know the value of a cozy, friendly place to stay. My parents always had exchange students staying at our house, and I've been an exchange student in Colombia. Hosting with Airbnb has been an amazing experience, and it's always fun hearing about people's travels, and their experience of Denver, as well as giving any advice I can on my area.
Some favorite cities (other than Denver!): Montreal, Burlington, VT; New York, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro.
I look forward to more travels as a guest with Airbnb, as I believe it really gives you so much more of a real feeling for a place, and it's a much richer experience if you can interact with a local.
One of my life mottos: Never stop learning-or traveling!
