Local Reviews

Beautiful area. Restaurants and shops are near by and walkable, very dog friendly. The neighborhood is clean and safe.

Theres coffe and grocery stores nearby. Otherwise I really don't like it. I have to use 100 characters, but it is the truth, if i could move away I would.

They have the golf course, zoo and the Nature of Science near by. They have a ice cream parlor, massage shop and beauty supply store. I usually head over to the nearest laundromat because our building and unit doesn't have one.

Very pet friendly for walking my dog. Lots of young people and near local long time pub where I can take my dog and chat and watch sports

The area has nice transportation system and good schools. We also have decent amount of restaurants. We need more restaurants and more public transportation

There is a bus too nearby that has four or five buses that stop there. Within the fence is decent people, nobody hanging out partying

About

Denver, CO

Overview of Denver

Denver, Colorado, home to diverse culture and a thriving nightlife, is one of the best cities to look for houses for rent. Its restaurant scene includes award-winning restaurants like Rioja and Euclid Hall Bar & Kitchen, both located in Larimer Square, and bars like Williams & Graham on Tejon Street offer a great place to relax with new friends. The city's outdoor attractions, like the Cherry Creek Bike Trail and the sprawling Washington Park and City Park, offer fun activities for visitors and residents alike. The Denver Performing Arts Complex is the central location of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, the Buell Theater and the Boettcher Concert Hall, making for a convenient trip when you're in the mood to catch a live performance. When you can't choose among the housing options in Denver, information available on Rent.com can help you locate the perfect place that suits your tastes and budget.

Searching for Houses in Denver

The neighborhoods in town have a strong sense of community, so as you're searching for a house to rent, be sure to enjoy yourself in the friendly atmosphere.

Those who want to be close to the action of downtown should check out the area just south of the city center. In these locations, you have access to retail and grocery shopping in Cherry Creek North. The variety of restaurants and bars nearby make it a great place to set up residence.

Families looking for more space could consider renting in Lowry Field, where there are many parks and sports fields for the kids to play on.

Prices for homes vary, but expect to pay between $2000 and $2300 a month. Properties closer to downtown generally have higher rents than those in the outer neighborhoods.

If you have kids and are deciding where the best place to set up home might be, visit Rent.com's blog to get more information before you make your decision.

Typical Layout for Houses in Denver

While many houses in Denver have been renovated or feature new construction, many of the older bungalows feature the same basic layout. A front space leads to a living room, with the kitchen and dining rooms located at the back of the living space. Many of these bungalows also have one or two bedrooms on the main floor, and some feature additional square footage either in the finished basement or on a second floor. Total square footage may range between 1,500 and 2,000 square feet.
