Toffee Nut Latte
Love at first sight is no myth, especially once you step inside the two-bedroom masterpiece, Toffee Nut Latte. You’ll see where the name is inspired by light timbers and deep nutty oak-like colours, creating a relaxation space.
Let the sun warm you as you enjoy a morning cuppa on your private patio. Or venture to the complex’s roof for a jacuzzi-fuelled night under the stars.

It may be a 15-minute drive from Downtown Denver, but this quiet neighbourhood has all the petit cafes and parks you could ask for.
Queen City of the West
It may be small, but what it lacks in space, this lavish one-bedroom apartment makes up for in other places. Picture yourself on your queen bed’s crisp linen as your favourite movie plays on the smart TV.
Sounds good? You can also whip up a storm in the elegant charcoal and white-toned kitchen. Sure, the views aren’t the best from the room. But who needs them when the complex offers a serene rooftop terrace for sundowners and a crystal-clear pool for those hot summer days?

You can even move the TV to any part of the massive open-plan living room, which gets nice and toasty in winter thanks to the massive indoor fireplace. It has everything. It even has a little golfing green, for crying out loud.
It is 17 miles (27 km) from Downtown Denver, but you can’t match its access to outdoor spaces like Cherry Creek State Park.
Possibly the most modern lodging on this list, Central LoHi, is the perfect spot for a group of friends, sleeping up to eight people. You can’t go wrong here, from the in-house theatre to the spiralling staircase leading to the rooftop with magical views.

The City of Cuernavaca Park is right around the corner and offers majestic nature walks along the South Platte River.

Practical Tips to Consider Before Booking Your Airbnb in Denver
- Book your stay well in advance. The capital of Colorado, that’s close to the Rocky Mountains, is busy all year round.
- Consider what you want to do in Denver and book in a neighbourhood that makes sense. Do you intend to explore the city, or are you visiting more for the outdoors?
- Last but not least, budget, budget, budget. Although the city’s sights are fairly affordable, some lodgings can be pricey.
