About the property

With three bedrooms and lots of style, this modernly-designed Boise vacation home is a great home base for exploring the area. When you select this cool retreat, you'll have great entertainment amenities like free WiFi, Amazon Fire TV, Sling TV a DVD player with a new 50” Sony HD LED smart TV downstairs and a smaller flat LED smart TV upstairs in the master bedroom. Bring your passwords to connect to your favorite internet content.

This is a fresh remodel specifically outfitted to be a vacation rental. Open vault two story floor space is bright and spacious for this 1200 sq ft retreat. The bright modern 50’s style kitchen and dining area make a great gathering place for family meals. This kitchen features a beautiful original 1954 Hotpoint electric range accompanied by late 50’s/60's GE refrigerator. A matching white newer dishwasher makes cleanup easier. Rustic farm table / picnic table can sit 6 and there is additional dining space at the bar. If the classic refrigerator is too small for your banquet? You can always use the larger refrigerator in the garage.

This is our first vacation rental, where #2 vacation rental is next door # 1096759. See our other listing at https://www.vrbo.com/1096759.

This is a unique DUPLEX design where each unit is private. This place is located on a corner having each unit approached by different streets. One can’t see the front door, driveway or vehicles of the other unit because of this layout. Also, there are no shared common walls between units, eliminating distractions. Over 2 years, multiple guests and nobody has ever mentioned the other side.

Yes, it is possible to rent both sides if you have multiple guests wanting to be near each other. That just requires you to assure all dates are open in both units prior to booking. Send me a note when starting that process and I can help assist to assure both units are properly booked.

The industrial style open 1.5” stained solid wood shelving supported by modern stainless steel brackets in the kitchen displays all of the modern stainless steel accessories. Solid white speckled quartz kitchen surfaces provide a bright and clean area to prepare meals. Enjoy the coffee bean grinder, coffee machine, lettuce spinner, toaster, Ninja blender and microwave to name a few items. Whole coffee beans provided in the freezer.

With vaulted ceilings, the living room has a beautiful full size leather couch accompanied by a leather lounge chair. Watch a movie, a show or just curl up with a good book.

Three bedrooms provide space for up to six guests;

Upstairs; An open master bedroom has a full bathroom, small flat screen TV, walk –in closet, luggage rack, chest of drawers with a comfortable queen bed. Another small bedroom upstairs has a sturdy bunk bed with two twin size mattresses, side table and a reading lamp. That room is great for kids since it is near the master bedroom. Please note there is no door for the master bedroom. It still maintains good privacy by being on the second floor and a hallway from the bunk bed room.

Downstairs; Another private bedroom with a walk-in closet and sliding door to rear patio also has a comfortable queen sized bed, side table, reading lamp and an alarm clock.

The top of the stairs features an giant historical 1896 map of Idaho that doubles as access to the fully stocked linen closet. Slide it open to expose the extra blankets, extra white towels and other linen items.

Large-capacity washer and dryer all ready and waiting in the laundry room. Washing detergent and cling sheets supplied.

Other amenities include a fenced backyard with private patio, another front yard patio/courtyard has propane grill, comfortable patio furniture and giant umbrella, central air conditioning and a 2 car garage, great for the winter.

BIKES, YES. You should ride to downtown and do other activities during your stay. We are always adding more bikes to the garage. Helmets, maps, tools are available plus each bike has lock. As of today, we have a tandem, a child's bike, one bmx, three adult cruisers and one fully geared cross/road bike.

Great Place to stay while in Boise!

No cable news available

  • 4 of 5

Home was very nice and clean and bed was comfortable. A multitude of information was provided. And the welcome pack is a nice touch. Our only disappointment was that cable news stations were not available and this was not clear on the listing. Netflix and Amazon were available.

The kitchen table was mentioned in other reviews and is not comfortable and seems out of place.

This would be a 5 star review if cable news had been available.

Awesome place in an up and coming neighborhood in Boise

  • 5 of 5

This place is extremely cozy and the owner (Greg) has thought of every single convenience and amenity known to man. The retro kitchen is very well equipped and the upstairs is so quiet that it almost feels like a different house. We put the kids upstairs and didn't hear a peep out of them. The neighborhood is clearly going through a revival with a great mix of craftsman renovations and hipster quarters. The house is actually part of a duplex, which we didn't realize until we drove away. That's how quiet it is. The house is a five-minute drive to downtown, even shorter to supermarkets and the like. There is a great selection of bikes and helmets and a functional garage that accommodated a Toyota Sequoia. There is a fenced in BBQ area but we did not use it. We will definitely be coming back to Greg's house when we visit Boise again.
