About Vacasa, ID - Boise / Garden Valley Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great house - Needs drapes/ Curtains DESPERATELY

  • 3 of 5

Ive stayed in this house a few times now with my young daughter. Its a beautiful home, with such a nice feeling as you walk in the door. Its in a wonderful location, and close to everything, especially the hospital my daughter was born. <br />

My only HUGE criticism is it needs curtains/ drapes in the living and dining room desperately. Not only does it make the place colder so you are always cold even with the heating on, its removes all privacy and you feel like you are living in a fish bowl. It also is very unsafe as people can see when you are not at home and when you are. We also found we did not feel comfortable watching TV in the living room as people could see right in at night. Its a huge issue and really must be attended to. It would be also really nice to have the steam room back, that was possibly one of the best features of the house. I loved having one every few days, especially wiht the cold climate in Boise. Debbie, the local manager is FANTASTIC. If only more people were like her. We plan on staying again for a month next year, but really will have to see if drapes can be installed first. Its huge issue for us.

This is a wonderful home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 7 nights. The house is large with a huge kitchen, set up with every applicance you could want. The refrigerator is large, the gas stove has 8 burners and the Jura Esspresso is wonderful. The master bedroom is big and the adjacent bath has two showers and a very big jacuzzi tub. The other 3 bedrooms have a bath and shower. The washer and dryer is modern. The lower level has a large rec area and a ping pong table. We had a wonderful time. We were able to walk to Camelsback Park, downtown and to museums. Thank you!
