Great location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Bosie. The Blue House is in a great location--close to downtown and we enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and seeing all of the historic homes.

The kitchen had all of the needed equipment for making a variety of meals, etc. with the exception of a sanitary (i.e., plastic) cutting board and there were no dish towels. We used the charcoal grill on one occasion and appreciated that the owner supplied high-quality charcoal and lighter fluid. The bathroom was very nice with a great shower with good water pressure. In addition to deodorant soap, I would recommend also supplying a moisturizing soap.

The bed was fairly comfortable, however, it was very squeaky which did not promote a great night's sleep. We actually left a day earlier than planned because of the bed. I recommend replacing the mattress with one that doesn't squeak.

Very cute and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was as we expected. Very cute and quiet. It had all the amenities described and the owner was very friendly. It was a last minute and short stay for us but we would come back when it is just my wife and I again. I would recommend this to others.

The Blue House

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here, this time for a month. Everything was perfect and well supplied. The owner is very attentive to any thing you may need. We will stay there again next time we visit Boise.

Decent Accommodation but poor communication.

  • 3 of 5

To the defense of the owner it sounds like he may have thought some communication was being distributed through VRBO but never was. I was in the dark all the way up till arriving at the location as to how to obtain a key and what time check-in was. I was able to locate the property address by process of elimination on the aerial map. I had sent multiple communications through the VRBO messaging system and received no response. It was not until I called the day of check in that I later received a response.

The accommodation was well appointed and decently clean. There were some hair in the sheets but seemed like they had probably been washed. I believe the dry air and static clink caused the hair to not be removed during washing. I might suggest the use of dryer sheets when doing the wash.

For the price of the accommodation I would consider this a decent place to stay. The location is fantastic and the neighborhood is delightful.

Very convenient location, very clean, easy access to foothills, bike path, and downtown.

  • 5 of 5

Jody was very helpful in providing suggestions for unique Boise places to check out - food, parks, the nearby neighborhood market (a favorite), etc. he also supplies two old bikes for use - great for the river path (but not for mountain biking).
