About Wendy & John
John works at a local ministry here in Colorado Springs & Wendy is a Realtor and works part-time at the US Air Force Academy. We love traveling and prefer staying at VRBO's if we have the option. We enjoy hiking, walking, reading and hanging out with the Kids and Grandchildren. We had a 5 star VRBO in an older neighborhood here in the Springs, but decided to sell it as the Real Estate market was so hot! We enjoying hosting Airbnb guests although we rarely ever meet them face to face : )
Wendy & John purchased this House in 2014
Why Wendy & John chose Colorado Springs
We purchased our home in 2014 and remodeled the 1,000 sq. ft. walkout basement to include a kitchenette, laundry room and SEPARATE entrance. Our dream was to reside in the walkout basement and rent the upper two stories of our beautiful single family home to guests at a reasonable price : ) The VRBO boasts a Master suite with a Saatva California King bed, walk-in closet, spacious bathroom with 2 sinks, a shower and a soaking tub. Also located on the upper level are 3 Bedrooms with fabulous Mt. Views, a spacious bathroom with 2 sinks and a tub/shower combo, and an upper laundry room. The main level bedroom has a Double bed and is located directly next to the half bath. Also located on the main level is the Eat-in Kitchen, Family room, Dining room and Living room. The well designed Kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and large pantry. The Kitchen opens to the Family room which has 2 couches, a recliner, a flip-the-switch fireplace and 65" TV. The separate Dining room is conveniently located between the Kitchen and Living room and has a table that seats 8 people. The deck, which is located directly off the Kitchen, has a newer patio dinette set with comfortable cushions and an umbrella : )
