The people here are laid back and you’ll definitely feel right at home in this city. So let your hair loose and explore the entire city. Read on to view the most beautiful Airbnbs in Boulder, CO.

1. Couple home with neighborhood views (from 185 USD)

This is a gorgeous home rental in Boulder, Colorado, that is perfect for any plant lover. Almost every part of the home has a potted plant and there are vines climbing the spiral staircase. This home will brighten up your day and make you feel at peace. As you head up the stairs, you’re welcomed into the large, open-spaced loft. One part of the room is the bedroom; it’s pleasing to the eye and feels homey. The bed is massive and comfortable, and it’s placed in a quaint corner, so it’s perfect for couples. The other part of the loft is a well-decorated study area. If you need to do some work, feel free to make use of the iMac. However, we’d prefer it if you relaxed in the plush lounge chair and read a fantastic and engaging book. The bathroom is perfectly quaint and is is just the perfect place to unwind after a long day of exploring the vibrant city. So light up a scented candle and have a nice and warm relaxing soak in the deep bathtub. Head out to the deck to have a beautiful view of the neighbourhood. Surround yourself with lush greenery and the host’s beautiful potted plants and lounge in the chair.

2. Perfectly modern: bungalow at downtown (from 200 USD)

The living room is quaint and comfortable, decorated with different textures, creating a more welcoming room. Sink into the seats, kick your feet up onto the coffee table, and relax with your favourite shows on the TV. This welcoming kitchen has green as an accent colour, which makes anyone who steps into the kitchen feel at peace. It’s well appointed with top-quality kitchen appliances, which would make any chef green with envy. The bedroom is roomy and minimalistic, with large glass windows to let light permeate the space. The star of this bedroom is the large and welcoming bed, so jump into its comfortable embrace and sleep well. Here’s another bedroom so everyone will be able to rest well. This bedroom also comes with a washing machine and dryer, so you can wash your dirty clothes before you head home. There’s a library-cum-study area available in the room and it’s extremely spacious. We feel horrible if you have to do work during your vacation but, just in case, there’s sufficient space at the table for you to complete any tasks. Or, if you feel like relaxing, sit down in the plush seats and read an interesting book. You’ll have access to the private and well-maintained backyard. Throw some firewood into the fireplace and watch it burn before sitting back and warming up your cold bodies. It’s even better if it’s at night and the stars are out.

3. Be at peace: vibrant home (from 339 USD)

The living room is spacious and vibrant, and that’s due in part to the bright red seats and the spines of the book just bursting with colour. Find a new read, settle down in the plush loveseat, and have a day to yourself. This bright kitchen is well stocked with both high-quality equipment and plenty of ingredients, perfect for any budding chef! There are also cookbooks that were bought during the host’s travels, so feel free to peruse them. Head to the bright and welcoming dining area after you’re done cooking. The lush green plants and the vibrant flowers will brighten up your mood in time for eating. The spacious master bedroom features many peaceful artefacts, like a Buddha statue, which make the room feel calm and inviting. The bed is extremely comfortable to sleep in and you’re sure to have a full night’s sleep in it! This bedroom is tucked upstairs and, as a result, there are large windows that let light illuminate the entire room. The bed is comfortable and it can be split into two single beds if that suits your sleeping arrangements better. Also, have a seat near the window and enjoy the host’s tea nook. The bathroom is huge and very private, so have your pick between a quick shower or a long, warm soak. You’ll also have access to the in-suite sauna, so head in and sweat it out!
