The home itself is warm and cozy, with vinyl floors and stylish decor after recent renovations. In the living room, you'll find a plush sectional to spread out and lounge in front of a flatscreen TV equipped with a Blu-ray player and access to WiFi.
Around the corner is a dining room with a rustic theme, featuring a hand-crafted wooden table big enough for eight, and a unique light fixture adding to the atmosphere. Behind the sliding barn door is a private washer/dryer.
Cooking will be a delight in the brand new kitchen, which is fully equipped so you can make whatever you'd care to. A dishwasher even saves time on clean-up. Head out to the porch after dinner to enjoy your favorite drink in one of the patio chairs.

The master bedroom is at the front of the house, with a king-size bed, walk-in closet, flatscreen TV, and a full private bath.

You'll have plenty of dining options in downtown, which you might even walk to if the weather's nice. Stop by the Saturday farmer's market to pick up some fresh local produce to include in your home-cooked meals, or find some art to take back with you in remembrance of your vacation.

The location of this home was very nice. We enjoyed driving short distances to get to downtown Boise and to the local parks. The kitchen was very well stocked with kitchenware, pots and pans for cooking.
Well maintained - lots of room - very functional space. Housed exactly what was promised.
Awesome for large group. Good location, nice house. Definitely would recommend to anyone visiting Boise, soccer tournament certified
Nice house in a quiet neighborhood close to downtown. I would recommend it.
We enjoyed our time here for a quick trip to Boise. It has lots of space and was had comfortable clean beds. It's also really close to downtown just a short drive.
Great location around the corner we from downtown and 30 minutes from Bogus Basin ski resort.
Good location in Boise, lots of beds and rooms for multi generational family looking for a home to move to the area. Quiet neighborhood and close to a grocery store and the airport.
This home was perfect for our group. Very clean and a convenient location!
A group of us planned a trip to Boise for a baby shower. We had a great time and found the house to be cutely decorated and well stocked. We loved the furniture and were all able to easily sit around the table for meals. The kitchen had everything we needed and we baked and prepared meals & appetizers with no problems and enjoyed using the dishes and cookware.
The issues that we did have are listed below:
1-The towel bar in the second bathroom fell down a couple of times.
2-The lights in both bathrooms went out. After trying to find the breaker box and reset the breakers, the property manager let us know that we just needed to push the GFI button the the Master bathroom. It would be useful to have a little note in the bathroom regarding this.
3-the TV in the living room only provided a couple of channels and we couldn't figure out how to get to Netflix. Instruction regarding the TV would have been helpful.
However, none of these issues distracted greatly from our weekend and we would recommend this rental property to others.
Great location for the wedding we were a part of at the depot. Everything was very clean. Two of the beds were very noisy and hard to sleep on. But a good overall experience.
House is fairly small but does sleep 10 and he's comfortable. The neighborhood is not the greatest but you can easily walk to the depot if you have an event there
Very nice, upgraded, clean home. Terrific location. Very close to airport, I-84, and downtown. Quiet neighborhood close to everything. Home has very comfortable beds and sofa. Nice, clean kitchen. Great washer/dryer and very good AC unit. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommend. Thanks!
The house is very comfortable and was a great accommodation for family of 10 in town for a wedding. So nice to be able to walk down to the river and Boise State.
Our family of 5 stayed here over a long weekend for a wedding. It was comfortable and well stocked inside. The only desire we would have had was a larger outdoor space. Very nice otherwise!
We had 10 soccer ladies in the house and it was perfect. I had been worried about running out of hot water when it came to showering but the water tank is very large and this was not a problem at all. Beds were great, everyone slept well. Place was spacious with plenty of room at the dining table. It is in a quiet cul de sac yet still close to the major roads and highway, without the noise. Host let us check out late so everyone could take a shower after our last game, before heading home. Will definitely try to get this house again next year.
The location was very convenient.
This house was a great fit for our group. We converged on Boise from several different directions and really wanted to be able to visit with each other without going room to room in a motel. The Gem was the perfect solution. It was beautifully clean and spacious, all set up for cooking/washing/bathing. The beds were comfy and the very cool dining table was a great place to gather for meals and talk or the occasional hand of cards. The house itself is private in a way a motel can't be and still an easy drive (or even easier Uber ride) to downtown and all the fun things going on there. We loved it.
This small home was well appointed and allowed us to cook great meals during our stay. It had a great layout that included comfy beds (5!) and provided open living space and a fantastic dining table.
I hosted eight guests for my husband's surprise birthday weekend at The Gem. Everyone commented on the comfort of the beds. The large dining table and huge couch make for easy entertaining with a big group.
Clean, lots of supplies provided, helpful
This house was perfect for our large family gathering. Convenient to the university and downtown Boise. We had a blast. House was clean and well-stocked with all the things we could have needed. We will definitely consider renting it again.
This home is crozy and very close to downtown. Kitchen table is huge an amazing for family dinners!
We had an East Coast/West Coast family meetup at the Gem by the Depot. We liked the clean mod decor but for for a snowy, weeklong visit we wished for a little more cozy creature comforts.
The location by the Depot is great. Kids enjoyed tromping out through the snow to see the old train engine. The neighborhood was quiet and we had no trouble parking a second car on the street.
The beds and bedding were agreed by all to be the best thing. Super comfortable.
Group consensus: fine place for a weekend visit but a bit small and spare for a week in winter.
This house is wonderful for family gatherings. The large kitchen and dining table make it easy to gather everyone for fun times. With 4 bedrooms, there is plenty of sleeping space, too. I will definitely be back here for more family fun.
Very professionally run. Timely feedback. Property has wide open space kitchen, family room to dining room. Was great for our stay. Easy access on and off the freeway and to downtown Boise. Nice neighbors. As advertised for what they promise and very comfortable.
Owner and Vacasa were excellent hosts and readily available. Plethora of sleeping room. Showers were good. Very clean and pleasant atmosphere. Table in the dining room is huge and excellent for large group dinners or playing card or board games!
