2008 Our Denver Digs

We really liked our Denver apartment that Dimitri had found on Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO) and booked online while we were still in South America. (Beauvallon, 975 Lincoln Street, Apt. 12G, Denver 80203-2725. The website is: http://www.vrbo.com/117514).
It was 2 bedroom/2 bathroom that were separated by the living room, dining room and kitchen. So, if we had guests, we would have some privacy. There was a large balcony with a table and chairs and a smaller balcony with two lounge chairs off the master bedroom.

We had views overlooking the Denver downtown area, a glimpse of the mountains and an Eastern exposure as well which got morning sun.

The landlady had totally decorated the apartment, complete with a crystal chandelier in the master bathroom and elaborate candelabra throughout. It was a bit more "done" than we would have chosen but it made a great impression. Sometimes, apartments we have rented have been decorated beautifully but are not comfortable or functional. Our Beauvallon apartment was both. We had two recliner chairs in the living room (as well as a couch) and we moved them in front of the TV for relaxing viewing.

The kitchen was well-equipped and easy to work in. When we needed something in the kitchen, the landlords were gracious about providing additional items. They were also conscientious about fixing things and making sure that the Internet worked well.

Because we were long-term renters, a membership in the Matrix gym came with the apartment. We loved the Matrix Gym in the adjoining Beauvallon building. It is one of the best gyms we have ever used, including gyms at Four Seasons Hotels worldwide!

Also provided by the landlords, were two city bikes. The weather in Denver was delightful while we were there and we used the bikes to go along Denver's rivers on the miles and miles of bike paths.


We would return from biking or hiking and then use the Beauvallon Jacuzzi. It was great!

With the apartment came one parking space. There were no additional spaces in the building for guests (and that is a huge problem).
