Mark and Socrates were excellent, friendly hosts. The home was exactly what I expected, a quiet home nestled in the back of another complex. Although the house is a little old it has a wonderful "warm" feeling to it. The interior decorating was very nice and it had the amenities we required during our stay. The house is easily within walking distance to the heart of Downtown Boise. The home comes with a residential parking pass allowing for easy access to the cottage. All in all I had an amazing time thanks to Mark and Socrates!

The cottage has that vibe of being your going home to visit family. It's was comfortable, clean, cute, and a 5 minute walk to downtown.

This quaint cottage is in a very quiet neighborhood, but close to downtown. It's clean and has everything one needs for self-catering. Lots of closet space, and has laundry room available for guests.

The location was great for us because we were able to walk downtown. It's an older home but everything was clean and in working order. Overall, a positive experience.
