"My wife and I spent five days at this wonderful vacation home in Boise, sharing it with seven other family members at night and a handful more around the pool during the daytime hours. Her family had a reunion in town. Our relatives had three houses to gather at during the week, and this became the default choice for everyone after a couple of hours in the gorgeous pool. It's a wonderful house for civilized get togethers--not a place for rowdy parties because of the residential neighborhood in which it is situated. We were an active but quiet group that immensely enjoyed the wonderful back yard, sparkling pool, and grill with table and chairs outside. The interior of the house is light and airy…actually even nicer than the photographs indicate. The master suite with bathroom is a dream, but the other rooms are also large and comfortable as well. Renters will find every conceivable convenience in and around the house…wonderful appliances, pool toys, wifi, electronics, numerous towels, luxurious sheets, even a plate of chocolates waiting for us upon arrival. Furthermore, it is a short drive into downtown Boise with its bustling downtown and interesting Basque neighborhood, 45 minutes by car to Bogus Basin for skiing in the winder or wonderful hiking through the pines in the summer, and a short walk to a large park. A well-stocked supermarket and drugstores are less than a mile away. Rather than feeling like tourists, we felt like some of the many proud and happy Boise residents who are lucky enough to live in this progressive and bike-friendly city. I truly feel that this house, more than anything else, made this reunion one of our very best ever."
