    Only thing is you need to fix/the stairs. They are dangerous. They need to be stripped, sanded and painted ASAP. The staff is outstanding every time.

    4.5/5 Anonymous on Oct 1, 2023

    The complex is very spacious, open, and clean. The apartments feel more like homes than apartments. The leasing office staff are also extremeley pleasant, helpful, and kind and do everything in their power to make the complex a great place to live!

    Renter's guide to Boulder, CO

    With the Rocky Mountains to its west, and 151 miles of nature trails on all sides, Boulder is a rare blend of city life and scenic beauty at high elevations. The Boulder Flatirons’ gentle slopes in the horizon imbues a peaceful and dreamlike tranquility over the surrounding landscape, giving Boulder its nickname as “the city nestled between the mountains and reality”.   

    Geographically speaking, Boulder is fairly secluded, but with a tightknit community. It’s a 30-mile drive from Denver to Boulder (a relatively quick jaunt for work commutes and day trips alike), and 97 miles northwest of Colorado Springs and its awe-inspiring landmarks. Boulder is about 6 times smaller than Denver (and a fraction as populated), and roughly 8 times smaller than Colorado Springs (with about a quarter of the population).

    Boulder’s climate is that of a high desert, and the weather in Boulder is pleasant year-round. Winter (December-February) averages 34 F, and has alternating periods of warm and wintry weather. Spring (March-May) has an agreeable dry heat, averaging 49 F. Summer (June-August) has very low humidity, averaging 70 F. Autumn (September-November) can go either way – wintry and windy, or unseasonably warm; 52 F is the average.

    Tips for renting in Boulder, CO

    In Boulder, tenant rights include a legal obligation to your security deposit within 72 hours in the event of a gas leak requiring evacuation. Also, a caveat: the landlord can evict you for literally no reason, but must give you adequate notice as per your lease.

    If you are moving to Boulder from Chicago, you’ll be happy to know that this is a bike-friendly city with much warmer weather than what you’re used to in “The Windy City”. If you’re unsure about the move, stay at the Millennium Harvest House hotel to see the best of Boulder!
