  • Dissatisfied with yard, amenities, and cleanliness

    3/5

    I usually don’t do reviews, but this one is needed. This property is such a disappointment. The yard doesn't even look like it's been maintained since last year. My dogs had no designated area to go to the bathroom because the grass was as tall as they are. I was told to just let them go anywhere in the backyard because it was fenced. Just pick up their poop. Other guests did not pick after their dogs. Grass was finally mowed two days after we checked in but the flower beds and outlaying areas were full of weeds and over growth. I can tell it used to be a really nice place, but it has been forgotten. As stated in the property description, there were no laundry or a blender either. These amenities would have been nice for the length of stay. Floors were dirty too. Like they haven’t been mopped. Just swept and vacuumed. Very disappointing. I hope my review will be seen. Makes sense now why the last review was in 2022. Not worth the money I paid.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Petrona, we're sorry to hear you were not fully satisfied with your stay. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We mow our grass weekly during the summer months, typically on Thursdays or Fridays, as it tends to grow rapidly during this season. We apologize if the timing of the lawn maintenance did not align with your preferences.
    - Our house is on 3/4 acres with lots of flowers, gardens, trees, and patios. It's an outdoor space that most of our guests usually appreciate.
    - We do not advertise a washer and dryer in our listing, and this information is not included as an amenity for our guests. We want to ensure that our guests have accurate expectations before booking their reservation.
    - Our cleaning crew is committed to maintaining a high standard of cleanliness, even when it comes to the floors. We apologize if there were any concerns in this regard during your stay.
    We genuinely value your input, and we strive to make improvements based on our guests' feedback.

  • Met our needs well!

    5/5

    Our family of 4 adults stayed in this property 5 nights during my son's move into Boise State University. Although it's about a 15 minute drive from the college, we enjoyed the space and privacy compared to crowded hotel rooms. The property is an older, remodeled home with nice decor, outdoor space, and great air conditioning during the heat wave we experienced there. What we loved: clean, spacious, open plan living/ dining area with sunroom, 4 separate beds, nice TV, floor and ceiling fans, central air conditioning, updated bathroom, views of trees and green space, quiet area, convenient beverage cooler. What was not as nice: access to the property via a left turn across traffic to a downward sloping driveway (heed owner advice on this), "sticky" front and back doors that are hard to open, no storage space in master bedroom (such as chest of drawers or closet). Those storage areas are accessed via louvre doors to the adjacent bedroom and are not really available if that adjacent bedroom is being used. Overall, a great property that met our needs well and was WAY better than staying in a hotel.

    5/5

    This is the perfect home for a summer visit to Boise. The outdoor space is beautifully maintained and was perfect for us to have our family who lives in Boise over for a bar-b-que. There is lots of areas for sitting, a grassy area, and the chickens were a great hit with the little ones. The house itself is spacious with a large table and chairs in the dining room. We will be back!

    5/5

    We were quite comfortable here, and very glad of the fireplace when the weather turned cold and rainy! The backyard is fabulous and great for watching birds--beyond the chickens kept penned to one side! From the sunroom, we saw quail, hummingbirds, and more. A few things to note: It did take us a second to discover the drawer refrigerator and small separate freezer in the kitchen. And given that the instructions asked for taking the garbage and recycling to the street, having more details about what could be included in the recycling bin would have been nice. It would have been nice too to know that we didn't have access to the entire house. While the top floor serves as a complete home, we wondered if there was anyone living below--especially given the door to the stairwell marked Private only locked from one side. None of this marred our stay and we were happy to have such a convenient location to downtown and to family in the area.
