About Robert Burke

Patty and Rob manage this VRBO as a team.

Rob moved from California to Boise in 1990 to work as an process engineer at Micron until 2013. He and Patty met in 2007 and married a few years later. Our career now is managing our short-term and long-term rentals. His passions are cycling (especially mountain biking) and gardening, also enjoys cooking, so a well-equipped, functional kitchen is important.

Patty grew up in a suburb of Boston, and has spent her post-college life throughout the West, first working as a wildland firefighter, then switching careers to teaching 3-6 year olds in Montessori schools. Patty enjoys hiking with the dogs, running, and [more recently] mountain biking in the Boise Foothills.

Our careers now are co-managing short-term and long-term rentals.

Robert Burke purchased this house in 1994

Clean and functional

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and the view of downtown Boise and the sunsets were beautiful. The house sleeps 6 but there is only living room/tv seating for 5 and not very comfortable.

Everything is small scale. Shower head very low,

The kitchen is not very well stocked in the bowl/pots/pan department and the coffee

Pot needs

To be replaced completely.

Clock doesn’t work

On it and it backs up

And overflows

Rented house because we needed a driveway to park trailer in. Drive looked big and flat in photo. It is very steep. Overall the house was very nice and comfortable owner just needs to add a

Little better living room furniture and stock the

Kit hen a little better.

Family stayed for the holidays, vacation extension of our own home nearby

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I live in the neighborhood and rented this space with family for the Thanksgiving holiday as a vacation extension of our own home. It was comfortable for everyone, has plenty of space for cooking and relaxing, and the proximity to the foothills is perfect! Rob and Patty are great hosts and we would stay again.

Don't judge a book by its cover

  • 5 of 5

The outside of the house looks like it could use some love, however the inside is spacious and clean. It is a good location and comfortable for a big family. I would stay here again.
