About Dorothy Ann Snowball

I grew up in Los Angeles and moved to Idaho in the late 70's. Attended John Burroughs Junior High, Fairfax High, University of Colorado and graduated with a degree in accounting from Woodbury University in Los Angeles. Started my career with Touche, Ross (now Deloitte) and I am still a practicing CPA. My four children and three of four grandchildren all live here in Boise.

Dorothy Ann Snowball purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Dorothy Ann Snowball chose East End

I have lived in my current home for 25+ years and have owned numerous rental properties for the same number of years. With the trend in "little houses" I thought it might be fun to make use of my backyard and build a little rental property. Traveling around the world I have often stayed in B&B's and enjoyed the atmosphere so very different from a hotel. In addition when we remodeled my residence several years ago I found it very difficult to find a short term rental and feel there is a market for this type of rental.

What makes this bungalow unique

My reason to locate to Boise's East End is that it has wider streets but is a quiet neighborhood close to everything that I enjoy and all the neighbors are friendly.

A warm, cozy place to stay in the middle of winter

  • 5 of 5

Dorothy's little spot in the East End of Boise surpassed our expectations. We stayed for a week over Xmas and loved the place. On a cold, snowy night, even the floors were heated. The high bed was wonderful. Superior shower. Every kitchen utensil or machine that could ever be needed. Though in a lovely residential area, we could walk around the corner to a little coffee shop. It was nice knowing that Dorothy's home was right next door.... though we never needed anything. Even a snow shovel was provided. We would happily stay there again.

Absolutely wonderful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Dorothy's Pensione is my home in Boise when I visit my daughter and family throughout the year. This beautiful space is like Dorothy- welcoming, warm, colorful, and very interesting! It is very well-appointed with everything one could need or want- and more- all in a lovely yard nestled in a quiet, pretty East End neighborhood. A perfect place!

Enjoyed our stay here. Clean, quiet, Dorothy had everything we could possibly need for a great first time visit to Boise. She went out of her way to get information if we needed it. Recommend it highly and would definitely stay there again.

This home sets the standard for a VRBO in Boise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cute coach house in the east end of Boise. The property and its owner are top of the line. First rate all the way. The house was designed and built specifically to be a VRBO, and all the details of such are taken into account. Not only is the place super cute, and clean beyond reproach, but you won't have to wonder if there is a bottle opener, an extra towel, or how the remote works. It's all there, nicely presented, exactly were it should be, right down to the "things to do in Boise" from the most recent edition of the Sunday paper. You're a 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown Boise from here. And of course, you get to meet Dorothy, who is not only a knowledgeable and gracious host, but a wonderful lady. I would stay here again without hesitation and hope you will too!
