It was the perfect fit for our family for Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

As described, it worked great for six adults and a small dog. Had two more adults and two small children join us for Thanksgiving dinner. We made it work. Also appreciated the proximity to the Greenbelt and downtown. We walked a lot in the unseasonably warm weather. My only suggestion: a few more pots n pans and a skillet for cooking would help for a full house. Would highly recommend this listing to others.

Clean and convenient stay near downtown.

  • 5 of 5

Loved it, clean and quaint. Was able to fit my entire family of 5 no problem. Only one bathroom but if you coordinate it’s fine.

The home was adorable,comfortable and an easy walk to downtown.

  • 3 of 5

The only issue we had was that the home was warm even though it was cool outside. These two things made it hard to sleep.

This unit was very disappointing. It is advertised as having air conditioning, but they are really only A/C units. The problem was that the window units had not been installed yet (they were laying in the dirt below the windows) and when we arrived, the temperature was 88 degrees outside; the following day was forecast to be 98 degrees; no air conditioning was unacceptable. Additionally, the window in the master bedroom did not lock, so we were unable to leave our valuables and work tools securely. I sent an email to the owner but do not hear back until the following day. By then, we had left and checked into a hotel. We were refunded the one night, however, we did not return to the home and have not received a return email or contact since we have requested a refund of the entire stay. Horrible experience! I do not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: The owner is very responsive to this property but was not aware of the email sent on the day of arrival. The air conditioning units were scheduled to be installed that week because Idaho is typically not 100 degrees in the beginning of June and it went from mid 70 degree weather to 100 within a few days. Once aware of the issue the air conditioning units were installed the following morning by 8:30 am and the apartment was cooling down nicely. The air conditioning units beside the building were not the units being installed, they were older units that were waiting to be picked up for recycling. We contacted the guest and let them know the air conditioning units were installed and the property was cooling and ready for them. The guest were unwilling to return . Air conditioning is air conditioning regardless of whether there is central air or window units. There are three in this condominium which cool the home very comfortably. The cancellation policy is very clear, we did refund for the one day and the guest refused to come back and occupy the property for the rest of their reservation. We fulfilled our responsibility in providing a clean and cool unit as described in the VRBO advertising and feel that they chose to break their responsibility of the reservation. The window lock was also repaired that day also. Please read the other reviews for a true view of this wonderful vacation rental.

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our trip back 'home' to Boise, and our stay in this condo was the icing on the cake. We could not have asked for a better location so close to the heart of Boise. It was cozy, tastefully decorated, and well appointed.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property June 18, 2015- June 25, 2015. It was so hard trying to find a place which would accommodate our fur babies; however, the owner indicated she too was a dog lover so it was great! The location could not have been better! Just a very short distance to downtown. Now to the nitty and gritty: The rental was beautifully decorated. The beds were comfortable, and had spacious rooms. We happened to visit in the summer time. The weather was HOT! Unfortunately the window unit was not working. However, one call to Lisa and she jumped right on it. She had the repair person there in less than two hours. They installed another window unit. We haven't been back since, but when we do come back we will def. be staying at this place.
