About Robert Burke

Patty and Rob manage this VRBO as a team.

Rob moved from California to Boise in 1990 to work as an process engineer at Micron until 2013. He and Patty met in 2007 and married a few years later. Our career now is managing our short-term and long-term rentals. His passions are cycling (especially mountain biking) and gardening, also enjoys cooking, so a well-equipped, functional kitchen is important.

Patty grew up in a suburb of Boston, and has spent her post-college life throughout the West, first working as a wildland firefighter, then switching careers to teaching 3-6 year olds in Montessori schools. Patty enjoys hiking with the dogs, running, and [more recently] mountain biking in the Boise Foothills.

Our careers now are co-managing short-term and long-term rentals.

Robert Burke purchased this house in 1994

Don't judge a book by its cover

  • 5 of 5

The outside of the house looks like it could use some love, however the inside is spacious and clean. It is a good location and comfortable for a big family. I would stay here again.

Clean and Comfortable House With Personality

  • 5 of 5

We rented Rob's house for the week we were in Boise for our daughter's wedding. There was so much about this house that was we liked, it is hard to list it all. Most importantly, Rob made it very easy to stay here. When I asked him for the address early, so we could drive by, he sent it. He let me know the house was ready early, if we wanted to check in. I asked for an extra bed, and he left an electric air mattress, all linens, and towels for our fourth daughter. There are some fun touches that make it feel like a house with a personality. The dining room table is inlaid with tile. There is a lamp made out of a large piece of what looks like driftwood. The view is lovely. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and looking at the Boise skyline in the morning and evening. The home has three bedrooms, a bonus room, and a living room, all of which have wood floors. The master bathroom is large. The hall bathroom has a shower over tub, and is good sized. The kitchen opens to the living room, and is well stocked with basics like coffee and some spices. Rob left a beautiful bouquet of flowers and some fresh cookies for our arrival. The towels are fluffy and the sheets are cotton. We have decided we would like to stay here every time we come to Boise.
