This listing is a room with 2 twin beds in a big, beautiful home in an upscale neighborhood about 8 miles to the airport terminals and 10 miles to the Anschutz Medical Campus.

With 4 homes to manage, and after 2.5 years and nearly 2,000 guests have stayed in my homes, all while maintaining Superhost status even though I am rarely present, I've concluded I must be doing something right :)
My secret is to let my quality long-term guests be surrogate hosts to the short-term guests. Not as a job, or even as a formal discussion, but because the long-term guests are naturally social people who want to help visitors.
One home in Colorado is near the airport, on the Green Valley Ranch Golf Club, with awesome views of the course, front range, and downtown Denver. You can see three 14ers from here, Pikes Peak is 71 miles away, Mt Evans is 50 miles, and Longs Peak is 56 miles away, with lots of snow capped mountains in between. Downtown Denver is about 18 miles, Boulder is 35 miles.
The other Colorado home is just 3 minutes away, for overflow and ease of management :)
The home in Michigan is in the epicenter of "automation alley", literally 5 minutes away from many technology companies, yet one of the most peaceful and private locations in this area, on 16.5 acres. As a robotics engineer, and social impact entrepreneur, I prefer engineers and engineering students as guests in this location. Only 1 mile to M-14 and Beck Rd, 4 minutes to downtown Plymouth, 20 minutes to Ann Arbor, 23 minutes to DTW airport, 30 minutes to downtown Detroit.
The Hawaii home is on the Big Island, about 10 minutes to the Kohala Coast beaches and 20 minutes to Waipio Valley on the other side of the island. Kamuela is where Keck and other telescope companies are based, in between Kona and Hilo on the "Belt Road", or Mamalahoa Highway. Waimea is also where Hawaii Preparatory Academy and Parker School are located, two world-class private schools.
Our goal is always to create quiet, comfortable spaces, where guests from all over the world can become part of an extended "family", even if just temporarily.
My homes are your homes while you are my guests, and I thank you very much for the opportunity to be your host!
