Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 7-8)

This single-story extra large 3 bedroom (2 bedroom, plus one smaller office/room with dbl. bed), 1 bath home is nestled under tall pines on the corner of a quite neighborhood in the Garden District of CDA. Located only 4 blocks away from the heart of downtown Coeur d'Alene and Sherman Avenue, where you'll find restaurants, shops, bars, the lake, the beautiful local resort and more!

Our cozy home has an old-fashioned, country feel to it with its high ceilings, original wood floors, large front porch, and bright, open windows on all sides. The interior has been remodeled and equipped with new beds and furniture and has is filled with warm colors to make you feel right at home. With two queen beds, one double bed and a queen sofa sleeper; the house accommodates 7 people comfortably (8 with small children). The large kitchen is stocked with all the essentials to make you feel right at home and the indoor laundry room and private fenced back yard are a great bonus!

Why the Owner Chose Coeur d'Alene: Our daughter and son-in-law have a home down the street and we travel to Coeur d'Alene often. Having a home in the area is convenient and we rent it out for CDA vistors who'd like a more comfortable stay where they can be close to family and friends, without the hassles of a Hotel. We hope to retire in Coeur d'Alene and eventually call our house 'home.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:

It's in a nice family neighborhood, close to everything and the shady corner is great during the hot summer season. The house has an older, rustic feel to it with a new, upgraded interior that is warm and comfortable so everyone feels at home.

A perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location! Close to downtown & the beach. Loved the front porch! Every morning enjoyed coffee on the porch and evening wine on the porch! And we all fell in love with Charlie the cat. Thankyou for sharing your cute little house with us!

Not so good

  • 1 of 5

The yard and surroundings were a mess. Broken walk way made it impossible to walk on. The grass was dead front and back yard. The garage in the back yard was a total eyesore with peeling paint everywhere. The living room windows looked out to the house next door with its molding tile roof and several cars and an overgrown plants with old tires thrown in. The bedrooms were very dark and felt dingy and the wood floors were peeling. Floor coverings were soiled. We could not stay there.

Old, dirty and expensive.

  • 2 of 5

The home was old, dirty and extremely expensive. The yard was dirt - no lawn - and not usable for outdoor activities. This ranks as our worst VRBO stay.

Classic charm-can walk downtown

  • 5 of 5

Its a cozy cute home so close to town I could walk everywhere, healing a broken back. The owners are so nice and answered all our questions. The beds are super comfortable and the kitchen table turned into an exceptional art table for my husband and I. We stayed 2 months and everyday I woke up to the sweetest home. I didn't want to leave. It has everything you'd want. It is an older home which gives it so much charm. We will be back!!!

Great location, price is right !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this location for 30 days so he could complete Ironman Coeur d' Alene. The house has everything you need, and all appliances are in good working order. It was very clean and the location cannot be beat for the price. We drove cross country and arrived a few days earlier than planned, Lauren could not have been more accommodating. The place was ready for our arrival. We had a great time and will take away wonder memories of our time in Idaho. Great place, great town !!!

Excellent location, decor, and super-comfortable

  • 4 of 5

If you love to travel but have doubts about finding the perfect place in Coeur d'Alene, look no further. Situated on a corner lot adjacent to a magnet school and historic Catholic Church, this house defines comfort and convenience in a classic downtown neighborhood.

I was fortunate enough to live here for a month during work relocation. I slept great from the first night to the last. Plus, my family visited for a few days during this time and also loved it.

Well appointed furnishing, great lighting, HD TV & cable, and the cleanest most comfortable linens, beds, and floors, cabinets, bathrooms, etc. are spotless. Everything is placed where you need it, never looked for a kitchen utensil I couldn't find.

You will enjoy the open ranch style living room and kitchen. Cook when you want to, each out in downtown CDA, just blocks away when you don't. Having rented four vacation rentals in other towns and cities, this Downtown CDA rental was by far the most comfortable and convenient experience for short term or vacation rental. And that includes our dealings with the owners of the homes of Downtown CDA.

Thanks for making my family and I feel at home, in your home.
