Our large, light remodeled apartment has a wonderful view of the garden which blooms from spring into the colorful autumn. While attached to our home, the apartment is completely private and has a separate entrance. It is in a quiet neighborhood north of downtown, 5 minutes from Old Town & 10 minutes from CSU. Free parking & cycling from here is terrific. With a huge bedroom, many closets, top end appliances & cookware this apartment feels like home. Enticing for both short & long term rentals!
Saul and JJ are a mature, well traveled couple. We are also home and rental home owners and therefore know how important it is to take care of property. We are both professionals who are self-employed: Saul is a psychologist, and JJ is a sex therapist.
JJ is an artisan bread baker who loves cycling and before her knees complained, tennis. Saul enjoys cycling, hiking, fishing and camping. JJ's favorite movies are "Dangerous Beauty" & "Kinky Boots". Saul's are "Stand by Me" & "Jules et Jim". JJ's favorite book is The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. She also loved The Caliph's House by Tahir Shah, Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Seders & My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She is Sorry by Fredrik Backman. Among a zillion others!
Our style of traveling is low key. We like to eat where the locals eat......good, not necessarily expensive food. We love going to markets and buying local arts and crafts. We travel on our own and if needed, hire a guide in a city that might overwhelm us because of its size and our lack of facility with the local language. We always try to learn enough of the language of the country we are visiting so as to show courtesy to everyone we encounter.
Integrity, kindness & graciousness are core values of JJ's. Saul has a deep appreciation for Native American spirituality and the natural world. Watching birds is a joy for him.
Neither of us can live without coffee... Or time alone to read and reflect. We also appreciate good, homegrown food and soft fabrics. Oh yes, comfortable beds and sleep!
I guess we are all attached to our electronic devices. We offer internet and cable TV. We treat a hotel or another's home as if it were our own. JJ is a clean freak and requires order to function comfortably. When we travel, we appreciate that anyone who is courageous enough to open their home to strangers deserves to find it in at least a good condition as they left it. Saul has camped for years and subscribes absolutely to "leave no trace" in nature. This is what we would do in someone else's home. We hope you share this philosophy.
As hosts, we are dedicated to helping people enjoy all that Fort Collins and Colorado in general have to offer. Ask us for information and reviews on anything! Ask us anything and if we don't know, we will connect you with someone who does. We will try to make your stay as comfortable, enjoyable and memorable as possible.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Saul & JJ
