This house is 1 block behind the depot. It is open architecture with a large living room for visiting a dining table that will seat 10, a small back yard with a 4 burner grill. Propane provided. Kitchen has all amenities and plenty of room to prepare food and drinks. There are 4 bedrooms, all have queen size beds. The master suite has a king. Plenty of privacy for sleeping , but only the master suite has a dresser. All the bedrooms have a nightstand. Our fridge was leaking water. I called the toll free number; talked to Heather. She was polite and responsive. Within 30 minutes, Debbie, the property manager called. We discussed the problem. By 2:00 that afternoon I had a new refrigerator in our kitchen. Debbie spent the entire morning tracking one that would fit and that retailers had in stock. Her efforts paid off and I am really pleased. Yes, I would use Vacasa again and would positively stay at the Gem by the Depot.
We rented this house as five of us were arriving in Boise for a baby shower and wanted to stay together rather than in separate hotel rooms.
The place is cutely decorated and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked and we roasted veggies and made cookies, and prepared appetizers for the baby shower.
There is one master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and three guest bedrooms. One of the guest bedrooms had two large beds in it (I think they were king beds but I'm not sure). The second bathroom was located right next to the master bathroom.
We did have a few problems with the house but they didn't worry us too much. Here are the issues that we encountered:
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.
Overall, we had a wonderful rental experience. The staff was easy to reach and very helpful.
