It’s been a rocky road, and a long time coming, but I finally found a place in Denver!!!
With only 5 weeks left on my contract, it does not seem like that much of a victory, but in hindsight it really is. The place that I was residing before was an extended stay [translation: vacation home for ants] in a city called Lakewood, just 6 miles outside of Denver. I had not had any success with any of the other housing locator avenues like Craigslist, Furnished Finder, or Travel Nurse Haven until one day, a little birdie told me to look at Airbnb. I had not had success with Airbnb in the past as well, but I figured, I couldn’t get any worse so I gave it another shot. One day I filled in the remaining availability dates along with my desired price limit and hit ENTER. What returned at the top of the lists of housing was the place that I had been looking for all along:
This place has everything I want including two fully furnished bedrooms, state- of-the-art-fitness center, AND my own washer and dryer!!!
Besides the amenities, the best part of this house is it is within walking distance (although I still drive) to work in the heart of downtown Denver. I look forward to the last few weeks where I am spending my weekends exploring the art museum, parks, and local wine and coffee shops. Until next time!
