About J P

I manage the home for my sister and family. In addition, I have 4 other VRBO homes that I own and have managed since 2011. I am a former teacher in Denver, CO, where I live with family. I enjoy working with travelers, as we also LOVE to travel and partake in VRBO as renters ourselves.

J P purchased this house in 2006

Why J P chose Denver

This property is a perfect location for traveling families who want privacy and space, yet are close to Denver and the Mountains. The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood so that you can truly relax and get away from the city after a busy day of sight-seeing. The backyard is a spectacular place to host gatherings.

What makes this house unique

This is a unique property with a beautiful large backyard and so many unique features within the home. The neighborhood is quiet and tree lined and excellent location to all Denver has to offer. Just minutes from the highway to access Denver, the mountains and many ski resorts.

Cozy yet spacious, well equipped kitchen

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for my family to gather and visit. Comfortable and cozy, yet spacious enough to take time for yourself. Kitchen is well equipped, every time I needed something, there it was! Janna is an amazing, accessible owner! When I return to Denver I hope the O'Kane Park Retreat is available. 😁

Lovely Comfortable Home Conveniently Located

  • 5 of 5

We loved this older home with its modern updates. It provided everything our family needed for a wonderful winter vacation. Great location nestled in a quiet neighborhood yet only minutes away from anything we could possibly want or need. We stayed a week, encompassing Christmas. When we first entered the home, we were greeted with a fully decorated and lit Christmas tree. It was so warm and inviting! We felt very welcome!

Our granddaughters' number one request was to see snow and even that was provided. When we arrived at the house, the yard, roof and street were covered in snow. The next morning, they got to try out their new snowsuits as they threw snowballs and made snowmen and snow angels out in the yard. The large carpeted basement was perfect for the girls to play games and hang out in. They slept in the room with the 2 twin beds. It was like their own apartment!

Knowing how dry Colorado is (we don't have that problem in Florida), we had planned on buying a humidifier at Walmart. This was our first experience with a "whole home humidifier." It was great!

No need to buy one.

We really liked the heated floor in the upstairs bathroom and the clawfoot tub with the amazing shower head.

The home was nicely decorated and clean. The open kitchen, dining and living area made it a very nice family area. Our son loves to cook so the gas stove was a real winner. And, of course, the oven got a workout on Christmas Eve baking cookies for Santa. The kitchen was well supplied... loved the RED color. The breakfast nook had a heater vent underneath it blowing on our feet which made it so comfy when we were eating. The outlet over the table was nice for plugging in our electronics. Wi-Fi and tv worked well.

The youngest of our granddaughters, the baby, even had her own room upstairs. We very much appreciated the home being supplied with a pack 'n play, high chair seat and baby gate. The upstairs rooms all had dressers and closets. Good quality washer and dryer downstairs with plenty of linens for bed and bath.

During our stay, we went tubing at Copper Mountain and visited the Denver Children's Museum.

Janna was great to work with. Easy to get in touch with and quick to respond. She made sure we had everything we needed before we got there to make accessing the property and settling in as seamless as possible. We highly recommend her and the O'Kane Park Retreat to anyone looking to vacation in Colorado.

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of extended family meeting in Denver from Washington, Oregon, Iowa and Missouri for a wedding. As the mother of the groom was one of our party we arrived in Denver early in the week so she could participate in pre-wedding activities and also take me sight seeing as I had never been to the area. Janna kept in contact and worked with us on arrival as we were arriving at various times. The house was exactly what we needed. Our party consisted of family ranging in age from 26 to 88 with 7 people total on our last 2 nights and everybody was very comfortable with the arrangement. Loved the location - very quiet neighborhood (although slightly tricky to find - follow the directions closely!) Shopping at WalMart for groceries was very convenient and Whole Foods was also fairly close. I was able to visit Red Rocks Amphitheater, Garden of the Gods and all the way to the top of Pikes Peak. Awesome!! With all the comfortable space at the home we were able to visit with other family from Denver and Montana and even all the way from London, England. Lots of positive comments from our guests as well. I would not hesitate to stay in this home again or one of the other properties offered by Janna in Denver and California if my travels take me to those areas in the future.
