Velma's Cottage - WOW

imageimageimageimageimage

" We are five senior ladies from various states in the US. We originally met on a walking tour in England (one of the original six has died) fifteen years ago. We've rendezvoused over the years and decided to meet in Denver this year. Velma's Cottage was the setting for our reunion. We found the house perfect for our needs. It is in a lovely neighborhood, close to downtown yet not in the city. The patio in back provided a delightful setting for our breakfasts/chats each morning. Lovely, inexpensive restaurants are located around the corner. Linda is very helpful - a total joy. Thanks you, Linda, for a truly memorable time. "

" We were in Denver for the Broncos game. We had stayed previously in another one of Linda's houses and had the same experience. Top notch! The place is very clean, and fully stocked. Restaurants and a corner store are seconds away. The neighborhood is very safe with a great atmosphere. Look forward to staying here again next year! "

Velma's Cottage in the City

" My husband & I are a retired couple from Australia. We were in Denver from 14-30 Nov 2010 to celebrate my daughter's 40th birthday, meet the 2 grand-babies, and enjoy Thanksgiving with various relatives from around the USA flying in for a family gathering. We had enough room in Linda's large and delightful house for 3 adult couples and my 87 year old mother. (For two unexpected guests, we were able to get a room in a B&B close by-- our location was very central to all Denver amenities). We managed to cook & serve a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for 12 in the kitchen & dining area-- there are a multitude of supermarkets and liquor stores nearby. We also used the BBQ grill on the back deck for slabs of ribs one night. The house has a great central heating system which kept everyone toasty warm, lots of windows for light, warm inviting modern decor with lively colours and bright, tasteful artwork. Linda spared no expense with the very best soft furnishings, bed linens & towels in abundance. The kitchen was well-furnished for cooking and there were many basics on hand. She even provided shampoo & toiletries, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent & garbage bags. Given the freezing cold weather and snow, we were extremely grateful for the garage, large enough for an SUV, with an automatic door and sensor lights. Never had to park on the street or clean snow off the rental car! Downstairs there were plenty of toys and games for kids of all ages. My grandson zeroed in on a fire engine and Fisher-Price toys which kept him amused every time they visited. I use a walker, and Linda did say that she was worried that I might not be able to manage the front & back steps. But that was not a problem as the back deck was not too high off the ground and it was a flat walkway to the garage. I would make a tiny suggestion that if a railing were installed for the basement stairs, this would assist elderly guests & those with limited mobility to use the marvelous downstairs shower. A previous reviewer mentioned that if there was anything the house didn't have, Linda would get it for you. Remarkably resourceful and a great (but unobtrusive) communicator, Linda lived up to the praise. She greeted us on arrival, let us know she was only a phone call away and if something was required, she made every effort to ensure we had it within a day or so. We can truly say that we enjoyed every minute of our stay and would not hesitate to rent the house again. Thank you Linda! "

VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
Great Family Vacation

imageimageimageimageimage

" This house was perfect for my family of 5, parents and grandmother. We rented the house while we were in town for my sister's wedding. The location was perfect for visiting many of Denver's great attractions- Coors Field, the Zoo, mountains, etc. Every morning my dad and my son's would walk to the corner coffee shop for a "kid temperature" hot chocolate. They would sit on the porch with their drinks and talk to the neighbors passing by. There was space for everyone to spread out, and the backyard was perfect for sitting and relaxing or playing catch. Linda the owner was great! She was very accommodating and even offered to help carry in our bags when we got there! We have rented several vacation rentals all over the US, and this was one of the best we have stayed in. We will be back for sure "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
Lovely home with everything you need

imageimageimageimageimage

" We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Velma's Guest House. Linda thought of everything as she furnished the house. There were plenty of toys for our kids (ages 7 & 11) and for my nieces (2&4). The location was very convenient to downtown and I70. The neighborhood was very quiet and having 2 off-street parking spots was great. "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
Ideally situated for our needs

imageimageimageimageimage

" The house we rented was ideally situated for our needs. It was well stocked, comfortably furnished and real 'homey'. Linda was there when we arrived and remained available through our stay. We didn't want for anything and enjoyed our time there immensely. I'd heartedly recommend it for any family or families who need a home away from home in Denver for a few days at a time. "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
A lovely place to come

imageimageimageimageimage

" We cannot thank you enough for the use of your lovely home during our recent vacation in Denver. The home itself was exceptional from the comfort of its furnishings to the convenience of its location. We were all very comfortable. Coming "home" at the end of a busy vacation day was something we anticipated all week. Hopefully, we followed all of your guidelines to return the house to you in the excellent condition in which we found it. One suggestion: We were doing online searching for things to do and couldn't print any of the tickets ... maybe including a printer and one cartridge with the rental fee would help those who don't know people in town and who need their tickets printed. Anyway, thank you again very much for your contribution to our 2012 vacation in Denver!! Owner's Response: Having a printer at the home is a nice idea...I will add that to the "wish list". "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
Another great stay

imageimageimageimageimage

" This is our second time staying in this wonderful home. We have family in the Denver area but know that staying with them (on a coach, on the floor, on a pull out) makes for cranky parents and tired children. The home is very comfortable. The neighborhood is charming. We even hung out with one of the neighbors after his 2 year old wandered up on the porch while we enjoying a glass of wine on the porch swing. The boys (10 and 11) enjoyed walking to the local establishments (including The Daily Scoop for homemade ice cream) and we enjoyed the lovely back yard after they went to bed. There is no doubt that we will be back at Velma's the next time we are back in Denver. "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
Perfect Getaway!

imageimageimageimageimage

" I rented this house for my mother, bridesmaids, and I to stay in while we were in Denver picking out dresses. It was the perfect choice! Everything was so clean and well taken care of. The kitchen, though tiny, was incredibly well equiped, even down to the olive oil, which I had forgotten to bring! We stayed for three nights, ate breakfast and prepared dinner at the house every night, and were able to relax and just hang out. It was quiet, perfect for sleeping, the front and back yards were both so relaxing, and yet it is very close to everything (especially shopping at Cherry Creek!). Recommended for:I would definitely reccomend this house to anyone looking to get away, and yet be close to everything, in Denver. "

Christmas at Velma's Guest House

imageimageimageimageimage

" My family of 5 (including 3 children, 14, 11 & 9) had a wonderful time during the Christmas holiday at Velma's Guest House! Linda thought of everything - including some holiday decorating, which really made it feel more like home - and we loved the house from the moment we walked in. My sister lives in Aurora and the house was at a perfect location for us - easy drive to my sister's, close to neighborhood restaurants and quick access to main streets, while still being in a neighborhood. Being the warm-weather people we are (we are from Houston), we did not get to walk around the neighborhood as much as we would have liked :) - but we look forward to coming back during warmer weather and doing that! We were priviledged to meet Linda when we arrived and we couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. We all highly recommend Velma's Guest House!! "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
stay in Denver even better!

imageimageimageimageimage

" Dear Linda, Thank you so much for making our 2 week stay in Denver even better! My mom, daughter, husband and I were very comfortable in Velma´s Too. It was easy to get to the hospital for the delivery and to my daughter´s house after wards. We had fun visiting old friends and my mom had a nice place to stay while we were doing that. What an awesome neighborhood! My daughter from Tucson is looking at the Colorado Pointe apartments when she moves there because she liked the neighborhood so much. Thank you again for the use of your house and for the return of our deposit. "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
such a wonderful hostess

imageimageimageimageimage

" Linda, I finally wrote a review and I just wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful hostess. The house was truly the highlight of our vacation - it was the perfect place to come home to! I highly recommend it as the perfect place to stay for any family - especially one of mixed generations. I can't thank you enough for being so responsive to our needs. You and your son went above and beyond. And BTW, I miss the garden. Wanna come here and work your magic in my backyard? Thanks again, Donna and family "

Brother's Week

imageimageimageimageimage

" Hello Linda, We were glad wwe got to meet you while in Denver for our annual "Brother's Week". The house suited us just great. We saw a lot of Denver and the surrounding area while in town. Rafting, Rockies, Air Force Academy, Coors, Capital, Railroad Museum, just to name a few. Of course we took in a few of your local beer drinking establishments downtown as well. It was nice to have the bus line so close for those evening adventures to the downtown area. You were right about the businesses in the neighborhood. We frequented Shells & Sauce, the Greek restaurant & 12th St. Market, and they were all great. The brothers had a great time in Denver. Many of us commented; "I could live here". Next year...Seattle!! Thanks for the great home base your house provided, The Durkee Brothers "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
Great location

imageimageimageimageimage

" Great location,comfortable for 9 of us, all the amenities we would need during our stay were provided, and a beautiful garden which one could view from the screened in porch. The owner was pleasant and easy to work with in arranging the stay. Very enjoyable. "

Cute little house

imageimageimageimageimage

" Our family stayed at this cute little house the week of Aug 1-10, 2009 for our son's wedding in Denver. There were 6 of us including our 2 young grandsons, 5 yrs and 5 months. Linda the owner couldn't have been more accommodating, from a pack & play, high chair, even special toys for the 5 yr old. We had everything we could possibly need. The house was so neat and clean, plenty of towels and linens. We enjoyed spending time in the back screened in porch and also the large front porch. The location was perfect for a family. Our other family members and friends also rented houses from Linda, which they also loved. We have rented many rentals by owners in NC where our chidren live, but none have been as accommodating. Linda was a great host, always making sure everything was fine. If our travels ever bring us back to Denver, we will defintely stay at one of her 3 houses. Thank you Linda for a great week we had in Denver. The Halpin Family. "

Velma's Too was just perfect

imageimageimageimageimage

" Velma's Too was just perfect for a two-family meet-up in Denver - more than comfortable for 4 adults and 4 children (ages 2-8), great location (we walked to the zoo!) in a nice neighborhood; everything we could have needed in accommodations and very comfortable. The screened porch and patio'd yard were such a nice bonus for us. Linda is very thoughtful and wants her guests to enjoy their stay at her guest house and in her city. Loved it. "

Wedding Events

imageimageimageimageimage

" Hello Linda, Just a note to let you know we received your message and the voided check. Thanks. We truly enjoyed our stay. We were close to all the "wedding events" and had access to the airport,etc. The house is wonderful. I would come again just to sit on the back porch and enjoy the garden. You left no stone unturned. Things I thought I would need to bring to a house were more that covered (body wash, shampoo, hairdryer, coffee), all very much appreciated. I tried to submit a review to the vrbo website, but it is not clear how one does this. I clicked all the various links and nothing pops up for a submission. I did submit a request on how to do this, so hopefully I can accomplish this shortly. Many thanks again, Barbara (Barbara's first contact with me was over the phone not through an email inquiry. With her permission I have copied and pasted her post visit email to me.) Linda "



VELMA'S GUEST HOUSE
Perfect location for our Denver stay

imageimageimageimageimage

" We were in Denver to attend a wedding and we were able to get to all the activities quite easily from our rental. The house worked well for our family. We enjoyed being able to walk to cafes and coffee places in the neighborhood. We were sorry that we weren't in Denver in summer. The back garden/patio would be very attractive then and a great place to hang out. "

Awesome Stay

imageimageimageimageimage

" Being my first trip to Denver, this was a great place to stay. Totally stocked. All you had to do was go in and make yourself at home. It was a pleasure to meet Linda and know she was around to help you out if necessary. On future trips, we will definitely be staying in one of Linda's homes. "

Charming Bungalow- listing matches pictures & desc exactly

imageimageimageimageimage

" We chose this home because of its close proximity to my sister's house and it turned out to be the perfect home base for us for 10 days. We've used VRBO many times in the past and I was thrilled that this home was comfortably stocked with amenities that alleviated our need to run out to the store and purchase household items. We appreciated the shampoo, body soap, conditioner, q-tips and even makeup remover pads in the bathrooms! The house was very clean when we arrived and Linda provided very clear check-in and check-out directions. We will definitely book a stay here in the future, hopefully in the warm months, so that we can enjoy the beautifully landscaped backyard with plenty of seating, as well as the 3 season porch. The piano in the living room was a nice surprise too. Linda was so pleasant to work with- you can tell she loves her rental homes (she has 3) and she takes care to make sure her customers are taken care of. The neighborhood is cute- there is a coffee shop and a few restaurants within walking distance only 2 blocks away. "

Memorable Family Holiday ( Christmas - 2012 )

imageimageimageimageimage

" We stayed for the week of Christmas this year (2012) and found it the perfect location and property. Very close and convenient to everything: shopping, Denver museums, downtown, etc. Great neighborhood. The owner provides just about everything you can think of to make your stay enjoyable. Wish it could have been in spring or summer to enjoy the lovely garden and sun porch. We had a memorable family holiday thanks in large part to our stay here! Hope to return as often as we are able to be in Denver to visit our daughter. "

  Welcome to Velma's Guest House

Family Friendly Denver Vacation Home Rentals | Cherry Creek Park hill | Congress Park Holiday Homes

Velma's Guest House offers 3 charming 1920’s bungalows centrally located in Denver, the capital of Colorado.These Denver vacation rentals offer the charm of the past with the convenience of today. Each home is tastefully decorated in an eclectic style blending the ambience of the 1920’s with the modern. Our vacation rentals are maintained to the highest standards and feature many luxury upgrades which you won't find in the typical vacation rental or “extended stay” hotel lodging. This thoughtful anticipation of your needs is what sets Velma’s Guest House apart from others. With centralized air conditioning and forced air heating, the inside temperature is always just right. Each home is very well provisioned, truly a “home away from home”, so you can focus on the reason you are in Denver.

All three homes are located in the charming, family friendly, urban neighborhood of Congress Park, one of Denver’s early neighborhoods.  The tree-lined streets and proximity to local restaurants, businesses and tourist attractions make this a great walking neighborhood. Enjoy the comfort and privacy of 'home' while enjoying the convenience of being 'in the city'.

Nothing is better than the intimate atmosphere of “home”. Whether seeking a special place to reunite with family and friends; an alternative to the confines of a hotel room when traveling with children: a comfortable respite during the course of medical treatment at one of the nearby hospitals; a hotel alternative for visiting wedding guests; a vacation rental home convenient to the major tourist attractions of the city; easy access to the Denver Convention Center when attending a conference; a long weekend “get-away” in the city; a central location for interim lodging during the stress of a remodel; a corporate rental for a month or more; all appreciate the careful attention to details and thoughtful anticipation of your needs, that distinguishes Velma’s unique approach to the short term rental.

Enjoy family friendly accommodations and an urban experience in Denver’s best kept secret, Denver’s  Congress Park Neighborhood.  Just 3 miles east of downtown and 23 miles from DIA, this conveniently located, Central Denver vacation rental provides easy access to freeways and public transportation into downtown.   From Velma’s the distance to major tourist attractions is measured in blocks, not miles.

I am delighted to be able to share my homes and this wonderful neighborhood.  Rent 1 or rent all 3. There is no management company to deal with, just me.  As the owner, I want you to love my Denver vacation homes and be charmed by the Congress Park-Cherry Creek Neighborhoods as I was over 20 years ago.  I live close by and always look forward to meeting the guests and chatting a bit if their schedule permits.

A stay at one of Velma's Guest Houses also benefits the Denver non-profit, Stout Street Foundation.  Visit www.stoutstreet.org for information about this organization.
