Property description

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, Direct TV, a DVD player with a new 50” Sony HD TV downstairs and a smaller flat screen upstairs in the master bedroom.

This is a fresh remodel specifically outfitted for VRBO. Open vault two story floor space is bright and spacious for this 1200 sq ft VRBO. 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 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.

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 crusiers and one fully geared cross/road bike.
