“Big Blue” is a large house – over 4,200 square feet – located in the beautiful and historic Hyde Park, North End district of the city, literally steps away from some of Boise’s best dining and parks, within walking distance of downtown, and a short bike ride from the best that Boise has to offer. (Rental Car available booked thru Relay Rides)
The house has four bedrooms, a very large living room with bar, formal dining room, finished basement/entertainment area, backyard deck w/BBQ, office, and is stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay – we even provide mountain bikes, tennis rackets, and all kinds of toys.
Big Blue is perfect for larger groups and families. There are two master suites, a kids’ room (with a bunk bed), and a forth room that serves as either an office (it’s equipped with a desk, printer, and everything you’ll need to get work done) or as a guest room (there’s a queen-sized futon). Eight people can sleep comfortably in the bedrooms.
The best part of the house is its location: in historic Hyde Park, you are literally within a block of Goody’s candy shop, Java Coffee Shop, Hyde Park Bar & Grill, numerous restaurants, antique shops, book stores, spas, and many boutique shops. You’re also a short 5-minute walk to Camel’s Back Park, with hiking and running trails, tennis courts, and playgrounds.
Although you’re close to everything, you’ll enjoy the peace and quiet of the leisurely neighborhood and the seclusion of the backyard deck with all the BBQ supplies provided.
Other amenities include large screen plasma TVs with cable hook-ups and DVD players, Wi-Fi, and a property manager that lives in the neighborhood and can help you with everything you need.
A great house for executives, families or large groups. You'll find that you don't even need a car when you stay here, as the wide tree-lined streets are very pedestrian and bicycle friendly.
Within one mile of the house: grocery shopping, numerous restaurants and bars, yoga studios and spas, hospitals and clinics, theaters and cinemas, and much, much more.

The beautiful, serene and historic Hyde Park area of Boise's North End, less than a mile from downtown Boise, St. Luke's Hospital and the Capitol Building, and steps from boutique shops, restaurants, spas and yoga studios, Camel's Back Park and more.
Year Purchased: 2006
About: A third-generation Idahoan, I bought this house but live out of state with my family now. We couldn’t bear to sell it, and we would like others to have the opportunity to enjoy it as much as we have.
Why North End, Boise, ID, USA:
The size and location: big enough for large groups, close to everything but quiet and peaceful, wonderful neighbors and close to everything.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that we never have to plan anything here: you can wake up and decide to bike to the Boise River and enjoy the zoo or museums there, or walk to the park for a game of tennis or some hiking, or stroll downtown for the Farmer's Market or to spend the day shopping and dining. You can do nearly anything you like and be close enough to home to easily come back for a snack, nap or to get some work done in the home office, or entertain friends or family in the big living room or in the backyard.
