With three bedrooms and lots of style, this modernly-designed Boise vacation home is a great home base for exploring the area. When you select this cool retreat, you'll have great entertainment amenities like free WiFi, Amazon Fire TV, Sling TV a DVD player with a new 50” Sony HD LED smart TV downstairs and a smaller flat LED smart TV upstairs in the master bedroom. Bring your passwords to connect to your favorite internet content.

This is a fresh remodel specifically outfitted to be a vacation rental. Open vault two story floor space is bright and spacious for this 1200 sq ft retreat. The bright modern 50’s style kitchen and dining area make a great gathering place for family meals. This kitchen features a beautiful original 1954 Hotpoint electric range accompanied by late 50’s/60's GE refrigerator. A matching white newer dishwasher makes cleanup easier. Rustic farm table / picnic table can sit 6 and there is additional dining space at the bar. If the classic refrigerator is too small for your banquet? You can always use the larger refrigerator in the garage.

This is our first vacation rental, where #2 vacation rental is next door # 1096759.

This is a unique DUPLEX design where each unit is private. This place is located on a corner having each unit approached by different streets. One can’t see the front door, driveway or vehicles of the other unit because of this layout. Also, there are no shared common walls between units, eliminating distractions. Over 2 years, multiple guests and nobody has ever mentioned the other side.

Yes, it is possible to rent both sides if you have multiple guests wanting to be near each other. That just requires you to assure all dates are open in both units prior to booking. Send me a note when starting that process and I can help assist to assure both units are properly booked.

The industrial style open 1.5” stained solid wood shelving supported by modern stainless steel brackets in the kitchen displays all of the modern stainless steel accessories. Solid white speckled quartz kitchen surfaces provide a bright and clean area to prepare meals. Enjoy the coffee bean grinder, coffee machine, lettuce spinner, toaster, Ninja blender and microwave to name a few items. Whole coffee beans provided in the freezer.

With vaulted ceilings, the living room has a beautiful full size leather couch accompanied by a leather lounge chair. Watch a movie, a show or just curl up with a good book.

Three bedrooms provide space for up to six guests;

Upstairs; An open master bedroom has a full bathroom, small flat screen TV, walk –in closet, luggage rack, chest of drawers with a comfortable queen bed. Another small bedroom upstairs has a sturdy bunk bed with two twin size mattresses, side table and a reading lamp. That room is great for kids since it is near the master bedroom. Please note there is no door for the master bedroom. It still maintains good privacy by being on the second floor and a hallway from the bunk bed room.

Downstairs; Another private bedroom with a walk-in closet and sliding door to rear patio also has a comfortable queen sized bed, side table, reading lamp and an alarm clock.

The top of the stairs features an giant historical 1896 map of Idaho that doubles as access to the fully stocked linen closet. Slide it open to expose the extra blankets, extra white towels and other linen items.

Large-capacity washer and dryer all ready and waiting in the laundry room. Washing detergent and cling sheets supplied.

Other amenities include a fenced backyard with private patio, another front yard patio/courtyard has propane grill, comfortable patio furniture and giant umbrella, central air conditioning and a 2 car garage, great for the winter.

BIKES, YES. You should ride to downtown and do other activities during your stay. We are always adding more bikes to the garage. Helmets, maps, tools are available plus each bike has lock. As of today, we have a tandem, a child's bike, one bmx, three adult cruisers and one fully geared cross/road bike.

peaceful and clean!

Beautiful home in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood. It was very clean and had everything we needed. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone staying in the Boise area. It was extremely convenient to everything we needed.

house/ rooms were wonderful, very comfy beds, location was good ...not too far from downtown and BSU

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for our visit over parents weekend at Boise State. Gave us time with our son in a very relaxing atmosphere. Would have been perfect if the weather had not been so rainy. We had planned on riding the bikes over to the bike trail and whitewater park, but figured we'd save that for better weather...Also had what looked like a wonderful relaxing back yard...(not used, again because of weather) Hosts had left a wonderful welcome basket with snacks and local beer in the refrigerator...very thoughtful . Not walking distance to the downtown area or campus, but definitely a fun, quite neighborhood. We will come again if it's available.

Great House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The house is very comfortable and immaculately clean. The kitchen is very well stocked and has everything you could possibly need. The highlight for us was having bikes to ride to the beautiful park which is just a few minutes away. (Do bring your own bike helmets if you plan to do this.) There is also an Albertson's grocery store and Starbucks very close by and driving downtown takes about 5-10 minutes. It's the perfect location for visiting Boise and seeing the sights!

Well appointed stylish home

  • 5 of 5

This home had just about everything we needed! The kitchen was well stocked and it was easy to cook there. The location was great too. We stayed with my in-laws. My family had the upstairs and they had the downstairs bedroom and bathroom and that worked out great.
