Seeking a Great Housemate

I'm looking for housemate to share my creative and calm home and studio. I am the founder of Mmmwhah! which stands for "Music, Movement, Mindfulness -- whoa! and -- Art," so our ideal housemate may be involved in one or more of those, or just appreciative of the arts.


My current, lov-e-ly housemate has an offer too good to refuse, so she is  moving out.  I'm looking for a single person, man or woman, possibly with a well-behaved dog, to take over her lease until August.

The 10' x 14' bedroom is simply furnished, including a twin trundle bed that can be turned into a queen, and has a large closet. It is adjacent to both the private bathroom and shared studio & meditation space. This space could also be used as a study space. Also, shared kitchen, laundry facilities, and yard, with a designated, off-street parking space. 

In the desirable Holiday Neighborhood of North Boulder that's been featured on as an example of New Urbanism. Walking distance to coffee, restaurants, shops, buses, and trails. Great art scene developing in neighborhood as home of Boulder's first official NoBo Art District as well as Mmmwhah!  Keeping with the origins of the neighborhood as a drive-in movie theater, free outdoor movies and community parties in the park in the summer. Near the Skip and 204 bus routes.

I'm a single mom with a great 12-year-old son who is with me a little more than half the time, so we are looking for someone with really clean, good energy and excellent references. No smoking. We also have a v sweet 11-year-old dog. Would consider another well-behaved dog with extra deposit. (No cats, please - So sad. Allergies and dog would make them problematic.)

$1,000/month, including utilities. Deposit: $850. Less if you have no use for the studio / meditation space and only want to rent the bedroom and bath for $850/month.  A small portion of the rent could be negotiable for cleaning assistance. Standard Boulder Model Lease through August 15, 2019.

Please email me with a short description of why you think this may be a good match, when you can be available to come see it, and when your ideal move-in date would be. Ideally, provide references straight away, or bring with you when seeing the place. 

I look forward to meeting you.
