Perched in the South Platte River Valley, the city of Denver is blessed with a stunning backdrop, with the Rocky Mountains to its west and High Plains to the east. But the Colorado capital has even more going for it than its raw and dramatic natural beauty – the city is also culturally rich, with many legacies of its Old West past, which can be discovered in its museums, public monuments and artworks.

With its myriad of outdoor cafés, breweries, wine bars, and shops, Denver’s walkable downtown district is the city’s beating heart. And this area is also where a large number of the city’s rental apartments can be found. While Airbnb have a strong grip of the short term rentals market, some people still prefer a more informal and standardised option than staying in someone’s private home. If you’re planning to reside in Denver for a limited period and would prefer using an alternative to Airbnb but without getting tied into a lease, we’ve picked out three of the best online resources for finding the right rental for you.
